Comment from latest course

"The most simple, loveable, nourishing week end course experienced so far! Going back to the origin of humanity, human being in our mother's womb to try and feel the world through a baby's eyes is the most refreshing experience...

Going back to earth and helping mums to understand and feel their little ones is such a noble aim...

Peter Walker simply embodies these values.

Peter is so passionate that he is sharing throughout the course not only his experience, his anecdotes, his knowledge, but even more,. ..there is something beyond that, something I can't explain with words, something you need to feel, to experience to understand..."

This is exactly what I feel from the bottom of my heart....
