"I am thrilled to be attending Susan's Compassionate Heart workshop for practitioners in September on Star island. The past workshops with Susan that I have attended provided an opportunity to reflect, observe, relax, laugh and so much more! I always come home with ideas for myself and my clients to use every day. The bonus: doing all this on an island six miles of the New Hampshire coast. The serene beauty is unmatched."

Carol J., LICSW

"Susan has a magical ability to bring a group of strangers together as a community within the first few minutes of the gathering period. She was clear, open, fun and able to lead the group with knowledge of techniques and gentle loving humor”.

Susan Guriano,  Pediatric Nurse

"There are not words for the soul healing blessing that was this time on Star Island. I feel held, loved, nourished, understood. I feel like I know myself and my body so much better now. Thank you."

Kate Smanik, Chaplain
