What are people saying about our training events?

"Pamela Gabbay and Andy McNiel of the Satori Group trained us very well through multiple methods and they also subtly implemented some tools they were teaching by being gentle to our experiences. They were supportive of us as a group and also as individuals whose lives have been touched by suicide. It was clear that they were aware and took these roles seriously and they consistently worked with that necessary awareness. 

I was both illuminated and moved for the entire training, not just from what I was learning from Pamela and Andy, but from what I learned from everyone else. I consider these very valuable gifts and I am a fortunate to have been a recipient. I knew I would be connecting with others and I believe they created the kind of atmosphere that deepened those connections."

"I enjoyed the Facilitator training a great deal. Pamela Gabbay and Andy McNiel of the Satori Group have a great presentation style that puts attendees at ease very quickly. The training was very informational with the perfect amount of interaction. With the training I received, I feel that I will be a very effective facilitator. Thank you both for making this education available in such a pleasant atmosphere. I will be recommending their training to anyone needing to learn facilitator skills. Thanks for the learning!"
