Lynne said: “Thank you Jeanne for a delicious weekend. It was so great to be able to leave the world behind and have the time and courage to do something just for me. Women do not allow themselves time to simply ‘play’… we all lead busy lives but to feel completely satisfied we need space to follow our dreams without fear of failure. Jeanne is an incredibly gentle and giving teacher… so encouraging and so talented. I’ll be back!”
