Greetings jule

I appreciate your welcome!

Hi Katherine,

Thank you for the warm welcome, I'm looking forward to being here very much. It seems like a great group here.

Best wishes to you,


Hi Katherine,

Thank you so much for your welcome. I appreciate the fact that with your busy schedule and expertise, you are reaching out to welcome me. I appreciate it and will respond with questions and inquiries, when I am able to solidify things in my mind. Until then, again thank you and have a great day. Shana

Hello Katherine and thank you for the welcome. Hello to your daughter also and happy new year..

Hi Katherine,

I have a question: I am looking atHypnosis Motivation Instituteto obtain my hynotherapy education. However, I see it is not an ACHE certified school, yet it is approved by the BBS.

Would you be so kind as to fill me in as to what this all means?

Thank you,

Jonathan Brugge

Thank you Katherine, I'm sure to attend.

Sorry - bad spelling - advice on schools!

Thanks Katherine. I do need advise on schools.

Thank you Katherine. Looking forward to learning and sharing my knowledge.

UC Davis is a wonderful school. My wife and I love the people, campus and positive energy. He is a Sophomore. He was recruited to play baseball and got a generous academic scholarship.

Those offerstipped the scales over a couple of LA area schools. Unfortunately he injured his shoulder and never quite adjusted to the climate and rural lifestyle. He's a beach kid. He'll complete one more quarter and transfer back to LA. He said it was the most important year of his life. Met a lot of great people and life long friends.

We're happy to have him closer to home, butregret he probably won't marry into a fabulous wine makingfamily(smile)

Thank you Katherine for the kind welcome. I see we have a few things in common. Our son is attending UC Davis and I started with self hypnosis many moons ago to help with college and injuries. Been using it ever since and now on verge of opening shop.

Hi Katherine,
