What Some People Say About This C.A.R.E. Training:
The material covered was clear and Sherry took the time w/ care to ensure we understood.  Was passionate about healing and the sharing of her knowledge to assist others on our way.
~Jennifer Kaschalk, Kodiak, AL
I was in the right place! Care is an organization that strives for excellence and unity in their instructors. Like Jesus wants his people to be.
~ Terri Fenn, Southbury, CT
The instructor was well prepared, competent, understanding, and patient.  She has a way of making everyone feel comfortable and valued. She corrected techniques and at the same time encouraged us.  An unforgettable experience that I thoroughly enjoyed.
~ Lori Marino, Middlebury, CT
Sherry possesses the knowledge necessary to facilitate the class and make the learning meaningful. Sherry is great at relating the course material to everyday experiences.  The time management of the day allowed for many questions to be answered and it seemed like the time just breezed by.  
~ Rebecca Corte, Johnstown, PA
The emotional release class was so enlightening and educational.  The understanding of how our emotions block up our cells and the use of specific oils to help release those emotions  and lead us toward healing, and the use of Raindrop Technique are great tools for a healthy life.  Sherry taught with great understanding and wonderful knowledge of the subject matter.  Her personal style of teaching and making sure we understood the information was very good.  The papers we brought home were great to help us remember and apply.
~ Connie Bailey, Port Matilda, PA
Sherry was in my opinion an excellent instructor on the topic (Emotional Release).  She was a very attentive instructor, answering and clarifying all questions to the satisfaction of all in attendance.  We were fortunate to see an emotional release on one of the attendees.  It was a powerful session.  I left the class with a much better understanding of the depth of Aromatherapy and the raindrop technique.  I feel Sherry was well prepared, knowledgable, and showed sincere interest in the client (for ER) and their experience.  I would not hesitate to recommend Sherry to others interested in attending this program.
~ Cheryl Scipione, State College, PA
I was so excited to gain a deeper understanding of the chemistry behind the essential oils to better share with others.  The teacher was clear and kept the science behind the oils relevant.  Experiencing and practicing the vibrational raindrop and the emotional release was powerful.  I felt the effects of the oils in a safe, fun, environment.  Thanks! 
~ Catherine Candiello, Lancaster, PA
My favorite part of the intensive was the VRT class.  It was so great to get an understanding of how thoughts, words, oils, and many other things affect our frequency and how that relates to optimal health.  It was great to learn so much about how to use the oils in life applications and various situations that arise.
~ Penny Hosny, Brentwood, TN
Sherry's love of the oils, her recall and sharing of information, and her love of teaching caresses her classes with patience, wisdom, and a safe haven to learn about the miracle of oils.
~ Kim Tubbs, Columbia City, IN
This course dramatically enhanced my understanding of the unique and significant power of essential oils in prevention and healing.  Sherry more clearly than I've ever experienced, explained the chemistry.  She was supportive and instructive in technique.
~ Caroline Voors, Fort Wayne, IN
