“[People] are battling financial problems, they are battling marriage problems, relationship, work problems, and they don’t know why. They need to go from betrayal to breakthrough.” (2:54)

“When something happens to you, it really might be minor in the big scheme of things. But it seems huge because of all these little microtraumas and these micro betrayals that have come along the way. And what I want to do is help people just process betrayal, globally” (6:26)

“I’ve become in tune with my body enough to know when something is happening, that I try not to be a reservoir for negative energy.” (13:45)

“You gotta at least create a healthy air environment which gives your mind a chance to just be. And that’s the one thing people don’t recognize is when you smell something it stimulates an immediate reaction to your brain.” (20:22)

“We want people to be lead intuitively, we want to let our body tell us what it needs. And this is where we need to remember that normal, should be feeling good.” (26:16)
