Comments from latest course
"The most simple, loveable, nourishing weekend 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 sucha 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....
My staff and I have thoroughly enjoyed the training over the last two days. We are really eager to put it in to practice with the families we work with.
Thanks again for an inspiring two days.
Thank you again for the fabulous training last week
Thank you for your guidance and training in developmental baby massage, I am loving it!
I found the course to be really fascinating and I cannot wait to put what I have learnt into practice"
