You were incredibly warm and understanding from the
first moment we met. I've never felt so comfortable
with someone so soon. I was amazed by how much I
enjoyed and learned from our session. I never could have expected a couple of hours filled with so much.
...It was probably the most valuable couple of hours I've ever lived.

In my first meeting with her, I was transformed. She took the time to first understand my context and my expectations for our work together, and from there I quickly could go to next level. At one point in our session, I was moved to tears; in another, I experienced the release of kundalini. Athena is clearly a gifted teacher and guide. There is much more I hope to learn from and experience with her.

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time with you on Friday. We have been smiling ever since.
Helene and I immediately went back to the hotel and practiced all
afternoon, again in the morning and again and again.
We will be back in Boulder and will look to you to teach us more.
