Thank you so much for the very emotional, good-hearted, deep, and applicable knowledge! To improve pls consider, that in some video position is closed and not totally seen the hands movement.

Good complement and continuation of other courses offered by UNM and Dr. Torres. Always nice to see the practitioners in action and explaining what they do and why. Very useful overview.

Lots of spelling mistakes throughout the course. The translations were weird and transcripts were not uniform. You are definitely left wanting more than what is given. I've started looking more into the presenters to see what they offer.
