TC Practitioners

As a family, we are deeply connected to all of our own individual practices. The benefit of this is, as participants you receive a multi-layered learning modality. Relationships demonstrated right in front of you as examples inside of an active process. From Brother to brother, husband to wife, father to children, mother to niece, brother to sister, sister to sister, cousin to sister, and friend to family. These examples of relationships inside of a learning practice are beneficial for individuals learning how to be accepted amongst what can be sometimes a chaotic environment of difference. In this space the learning is acceptance a skill not taught in schools or institutes.
