I have to say that this was really inspiring. I had not heard of her before, and I hope Deanne forgives me for this! However, I was absolutely mesmerised by this session, and inspired. I was inspired not only by the words, but by the manner of the telling of her story and philosophy

I so so so loved this. This is what I needed. I've been shooting for 25 years and have begun to lose focus. I feel like I have found a new map. Love this!


I've watched this last year for the first time and I came away with so many ways to work and felt comforted to know that I could do them. Thanks for the free part. Thanks a lot. Tucker K
