Class Testimonials

"This class exceeded my expectations. It was creative, well structured, and interactive.
"Laura has a way of presenting information that makes it so easy and fun to learn. The way she teaches is just effortless and joy-filled. The attunement was gentle and powerful, and the experience really speaks for itself. I really feel that this is not just a class, this is a spiritual catalyst that will change your life."

"The amount of gratitude and joy that I have cannot be conveyed through words alone. I am definitely a different person today. The experience was transformative and beautiful. You put so much love, intent and energy into making sure that we all were able to come into our own. You held a space for us to become intimate with our own spirit and the ability to express that into the world with our attunement. Yesterday was special. I graduate with a master’s degree in a few short weeks, but this feels like a more sincere and bigger accomplishment. I have been looking for a spiritual teacher/guide, and could not thank the universe enough for letting me connect with you. Many blessings."
