We feel forever blessed to share deep connections with so many wonderful people and we thank you all for your compassion and your honesty.

When I was much shorter than I am now, and still living in the same house as my biological family, and when I was called a child by most who were at that time called adults, we lived very close to an amusement park.
During 2009 I had the most fantastic opportunity to attend Facilitator Training (FT) with Mette at High Spirits. I was already assisting other facilitators prior to this on ‘Spirit of Woman’ and Ka Huna training Levels 1&2, 3, 5 and 6. However, it was not until I did my FT that I truly stepped up and into my own personal power as a leader.
I had the amazing opportunity to experience Leadership and Facilitators (L&F) training at Mette's Institute during 2011. I perform leadership roles at home, in my workplace where I am part of a small team within a larger team environment, and in my community. I thought L&F training would help me find my voice so that I could positively contribute in those environments from building trust between family members, colleagues and members of my community to creating harmonious relationships which would lead to productive outcomes. But it was so much more than this. First, it helped me to trust myself, to bring out my story, my essence and my power so that I can now stand before anyone, from an individual to a large room full of people, and be able to speak with confidence and clarity.
I have learned so much from Mette about working with group dynamics: tuning into a group, knowing how and when to shift energy and focus, and how to do this with ease, grace and humour! Training with Mette has equipped me with skills and confidence to achieve my personal goal of successfully running my own performance retreats and workshops. And along the way I have been encouraged to be more fully myself; the personal growth has been profound. I cannot recommend this training highly enough. Just do it.
