WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Thanks to Mel for being such a wonderful teacher throughout our sessions. The students loved the experience and I had parents telling me this morning about the precious crystals their children had brought home and how special they were to them! It's great to know that they will remember the experience and have a vice to use to bring them happy thoughts in times of sadness/anger! Thanks again guys, hopefully we will have a unit next year that will be enhanced by one of your programs again.
