Your course led me to examine my life — something I did not expect. I spent most of my month with you thinking about my life, my space, my belongings, how large/small a living space I want ideally, people in my life and how they fit into my house, my wardrobe and how that affects what belongings I keep, and much more ... Much more valuable than just throwing a bunch of stuff out, which I have done before. Thank you!
