Summer School Participant Feedback

“A real sense of community developed throughout the week”“The opportunity to meet scholars, get together with colleagues from around the world and tune in back to self-practice”; “The soothing meditations dotted throughout the fairly intense days. They helped keep us grounded and yet on the ball to soak up the exquisitely prepared and presented sessions.”
