What people had to say about the June event!


"I really enjoyed the entire day, and got so many amazing insights from the program. It is rare that you have the time - or make the commitment - to doing something completely for you. This program made a big impact by combining the science and emotion of habits with the great interactive exercises to really imprint the teaching of the day." ~ C.T.

(Change Your Habitudes, Change Your Life Workshop) "I believe that this program can bring help and healing to so many lives. I would love to see men take this course, as it would benefit anyone to attain wellness and wholeness in all aspects of one's life. Thank you for a great day." ~ Debra Seaman

(Change Your Habitudes, Change Your Life Workshop) "Great transformational program. Real 'take home' skills will make a difference in the way I approach life and change habits that don't serve me. Thanks for an amazing experience, and full of humor, too!!!" ~ L.J. S.

“Rita Schiano is a fabulous speaker! She is dynamic, passionate, fun and very engaging. Her direct delivery of information is refreshing- the audience was very focused and several parents were taking notes! I could have listened to her speak for hours!! A few parents later stated that they really enjoyed the opportunity to share concerns and challenges with each other. Rita has a way of making people comfortable and giving them the confidence to share and ask questions. Everyone came away with tips to try at home to promote positive changes and to build resiliency in ourselves and our children. We are hoping to invite her to return for another parent program soon! ” ~ Lisa Meunier RN, M.Ed, Burgess Elementary School Nurse

Fear is a distressing negative emotion brought on by a perceived threat. It is a basic survival mechanism that triggers your 'fight or flight' response. Our fears, however, can often take on a life of their own and stop us dead in our tracks.
