“Susan is like a gang leader, she is respected, tough. She says things firmly, but with a lot of heart. She is direct yet angelic. The class is a big emotional commitment for the students, they wonder, “Am I going to be safe? How am I going to share with these other people?” Susan is brilliant at creating an honest, open, un-intimidating and safe space and as a result, the students learn to realize that the more you trust yourself, the more trustworthy you are.”
