“I very much enjoyed Poetry as a Tool for Wellness.
The presentation structure worked very well for me. The detail on set-up and facilitation seemed well-conceived and validated by use over time. I hope to pilot its use with a group in time, when things settle down a bit...
or maybe in the midst of all of this.”
