Here's a testimonial from a Certified MSC teacher who sat our October Retreat: Dearest Beth, The Five night Coming Home to Kindness silent retreat at Copper Beech in October, was just what I needed after a busy year of teaching and some personal challenges.. I had no idea how much I needed it, until I soaked in the practices…and the silence and your guidance! Have been thinking of you much since our time together. I am readying to launch two MSC programs tomorrow and I look forward to them, the retreat renewed my commitment to my personal practice, and is keeping all from the retreat warm in my heart. I welcome keeping in touch with you Beth. With love and appreciation. KT certified MSC Teacher
