Thank you so much for all the behind the scenes preparation that you do to make this event so amazing. You are so intuitive to each woman present. Like a grandmaster conducting an orchestra you get a standing ovation.
Taking ilene’s journaling course moved me from using journaling to regurgitate my day that I never wanted to return to – to using journaling for an exploration of who I am and how I process and grow. I return to reread the nuggets of insight and strength that I find within me. ilene uses varied techniques meant to draw out the truths under the surface where sometimes a surprise and sometimes reassurance of personal wisdom are lurking. The journaling techniques I learned in ilene’s classes in the 1990s I still use to this day – The goals I set for myself back then – I read them recently – are all done! I am delighted to have met what I then thought were dreams – and – now – it is time to revisit that lesson in journaling to work on this phase of life and dreams – the skills I learned then are still applicable today. Thanks ilene, for your creative, inventive, brave and loving teachings”
