Totally awesome. This is the best class I have ever paid money for. I feel empowered and equipped to help people in a really deep way.

~~~Sarah Lee, Young Living Diamond, Snohomish, WA

I fell in love with oils all over again! It was such a valuable experience. I'd love for my whole team to receive this training. I would attend this training again with Tonya in a heartbeat. She's the kind of person I'd love to spend time with in any setting. She's very loving and challenged me in my personal growth. Thank you, Tonya!

This class far exceeds my expectations! I feel I have gained an incredible amount of information in a short period of time, which will create a solid foundation for my future with Young Living.

~~~Tammy Dwyer, R.N. Bay St. Louis, MS

Tonya’s grasp on the science and practicality of essential oils is phenomenal. She is clearly an expert in her field and I highly recommend her.

~~~Ashley Cooper, Sustainable Earth Yoga Retreats Founder, Truckee, CA

After spending the last 3 years listening to someone who had already been through the program I constantly barraged her with questions. Now I can say to her, “I get it NOW!”

~~~Suzanne Lynch, Gardner, MA

Had unexpected release at home the morning after Raindrop. Came back the same day, went through Emotional Release [class] and realized exactly why I had the release and which emotions were attached to which body parts.

~~~Terri Philpot, Kimberly, AL

The CARE Intensive was truly a life-changing experience. Tonya Peterson shows such love for God, her students, her partner and husband Shawn, and the information she shared. Everything was clear and detailed, and all questions were answered with kindness and patience. My relationship with God has been so enriched by this study and I am eager to see what doors He opens from this time with these amazing people--Tonya, Shawn, and my fellow students. Thank you for this incredible program and blessing us so we can go out and bless others. God bless you!
