Testimonials

As soon as I’ve signed up for one of Rose’s classes, I’ve come to know a deep sense of anticipation and quiet peace. Rose has a way of creating a safe space to explore and simply have fun. I am very grateful to have experienced Rose’s work.  She is one of the treasures of the Flathead Valley. –  L. Myers, teacher, musician, song writer

You are an amazing person who not only teaches people how to live authentic lives but also you inspire people because you have done all of the work and truthfully talk about it.  This class helped me be honest with myself.  You showed us that it is not scary, but actually invigorating to question our lives.  I wish I could come to your classes every week for the rest of my life! – E. M., Becoming Oneself Participant

You are a knowledgeable and compassionate facilitator who is able to be very present. I hope you are interested and able to do some more facilitating for Living Art.- Y. Stein, Living Arts Center

Since you came in for a w omen’s detention center session last month, the writing they’ve done has reflected your great instructions.   Each time volunteers proudly read their work, I think, “Rose would be so pleased to hear this–and see their faces as they read or listen!  You’ll be happy to know we are instituting a women’s “jail” publication for present and future inmates.  Thank you ever so much! – L. Smith, Kalispell, MT Women’s Detention Director/Literacy Volunteers

I thought about you many times since you last were here.  I just wanted to take the time to thank you.  I so much appreciated the class you taught on journaling.  I’m not a writer or a reader at all, but now since I’ve been here in this jail, I’ve already read eight books and I’m on my ninth and I’ve written more letters than I’ve ever have in my whole life and this journaling does get easier.  Thank you for teaching us the principles of journaling here in the jail.  I give you a great big thank you from all of us. – inmate at Kalispell Women’s Detention Center

Rose has a great aura about her and has energy that is accepting and nonjudgmental.  I found that a great comfort. I will definitely be looking for other classes that she offers.  She is great and lovely and the Flathead educational system is lucky to have her! Becoming Oneself Participant

The class was synergistic.  You have an unerring gift of doing and saying just the things that draw people out of themselves and which open new horizons. C. Price

The best part about the workshop was Rose herself and her knowledge–light-hearted spirit–very one-on-one person. She made us feel very comfortable and willing to share even personal things.  She has great knowledge of her subject and gives examples of her own life experiences.  She has great wisdom to impart. Kate J.

This was a surprise.  Would not have selected journaling for Elder-hostel yet it ranks first in activities for me. Rose is very good at teaching journal writing.  Although I’ve been doing it for years, she provided fresh new aspects – very good.   Ellen H.

Rose was a wonderful instructor!  She showed, taught and listened in equal parts which fostered all of our learning experiences. Kim W.I am struggling with the same old stuff.  I learned that I want to go to more imaging.  Treasure maps to make my dreams, wants to come true.  You made me feel like what I want isn’t being selfish. I enjoyed your flow and the freedom of not feeling that you expected any thing more of me than to be me. Thanks.”—  college evaluation for Visual Journaling Workshop
