What Some People Say About This C.A.R.E. Training

So many "ah-ha" moments!  Though I've never liked chemistry, this made sense.  Penny was great at coaching both Vitaflex & Raindrop; very encouraging!
~Janet Lindquist, Waitsburg, WA

I would recommend everyone take CARE if possible.  They really put things into perspective and the weekend was emotionally uplifting.
~Veronica Humphrey, JBER, Alaska

All of the classes are presented clearly and there is sufficient time for practice and to have questions answered.  I really feel equipped to begin using theses techniques immediately.  Penny keeps us on time but we feel free to ask questions, have discussions and work on techniques until confident.
~Therese Bower, Duluth, Minnesota

This class was better than I could have ever expected!  I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in oils and/or raindrop technique.
~Valerie Slinger, LMT, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

This was an excellent class.  I thoroughly benefitted from the hands-on portion and learned the techniques in a very supported atmosphere.  Penny is an excellent facilitator and is dedicated to each individuals success.
~Sarah Gelineau, Tonasket, WA

Wonderful experience with a group of various backgrounds.  Numerous ideas were shared and "tool boxes" were supplied with new "tools".
~Stacy Thetford, PT, Rogue River, Oregon

Taking CARE has made a huge impact in my life!  The class far exceeded what I thought it would and I cannot wait to complete my training to become certified in Raindrop.
~Julia McCabe, Herald, CA
I've wanted to take this for a long time.  It was well worth the wait.  The instructions were clear and the corrections were done in an easy, kind way.  I am excited to learn all of this and can't wait to use these wonderful techniques.
~Peggy Beckett, Half Moon Bay, California

The Emotional Release was unexpectedly wonderful.  I was reluctant and protective during the process, but praying for God's will be done.  I bawled and I feel like this is the beginning of healing.
~Bethany Brown, Anchorage, Alaska
Having had several other Raindrop trainings, I found this class to be informative, with good demonstrations and explanations.
~Diana Buhr, RN, Superior, Wisconsin
This is the second seminar I've taken and it has been invaluable!  I have improved on the details of the techniques and caught so many more nuances.  Thank you!
~Tamara Frey, Redwood Valley, California

I feel this is extremely important to have a better understanding of what the possibilities of these oils are and what they are used for.  Having the hands on approach and Penny's expertise is exceptional.  I am so thankful for this time together.
~Mindy Henderson, Eureka, MT

My CARE instructors were fun and very loving individuals.  I'd suggest a CARE Intensive to anyone and everyone who uses essential oils.  The knowledge I have obtained is truly priceless!
~Shawna Silbernagel, Osage, Minnesota

This class was perfiect for anyone!  It was nice to be in a class with such a variety of women with different backgrounds and work experience.
~Michelle Torrez, LMT, Rogue River, Oregon

The CARE program was a very intense, fulfilling and amazing weekend.  I am overwhelmed with excitement to start working with my clients.  Penny is fantastic and so knowledgeable - I aspire to be as knowledgeable as she is!
