What do people do with the skills they learn at a PYE training?

Your energy, enthusiasm and knowledge are incredible. Not only that, but you were able to pass so much of that on to us during such a short time. Thank you!

“I loved everything about the 2 days from the energy of the facilitators, the content of the teaching to the opportunity to be part of this amazing community of practice. I loved the opportunities created for me to express myself in terms of making my name tag, drawing my creative spirit, the story telling and poem writing – Super simple yet so powerful.  Our Group work for the final item, is something that I will carry with me forever.  I was again reminded of my privilege and was in awe of the courage and perseverance of other participants and was struck by how emotional this experience was for some participants.  I also loved the expression of emotion through sculpting!”
