Teacher, Quito, Ecuador: “This program offers the reward of helping my students become better and improve their lives. While before the lecture they are pretty hostile, insolent and bored, 99% of the time they end up very happy, willing, grateful and with a new desire to live with their fellows.”
Inmate, New York State prison: “When I first started this course, I didn’t feel it would get to the layers of my problems and everyday drama or situations I was dealing with, but that quickly changed. It didn’t just peel back the layers inside of me, but it helped me shed the mask I was so tired of wearing each day. I look at my life and people much differently. My survival as well as others’ is important… . I now make better decisions and act from the understanding I have gained from doing this course. I definitely recommend that others get on board to a new start.”
