I am grateful for all of the people I have worked with. They share their beauty, wisdom, and vulnerability. I am touched by their honesty, and I owe my growth to all those I have worked with.
"Magdalena is always such a wonderful instructor. She has such an honest, open and accepting nature both in the way she teaches and the energy she brings to the group. I really enjoyed how she honored us as a group and how she brings her insight and experiences into the group discussions. She is an inspiration."
"Magdalena is great at spurring class discussions about topic wonderings. I also love how she brings her 'self' to class and shares stories from her profession (within proper confidentiality)."
"I absolutely enjoy and respect Magdalena so much! She holds the space of class with an extremely warm, understanding, funny, intelligent and warm presence that makes it so much easier to be willing to explore topics that can be really serious. I felt she has so much to offer..."
"Magdalena is among my favorite instructors of all time. I love her approach that includes an awareness of diversity and social justice issues in all facets of art therapy... And our class was a bit "lively" and she did a wonderful job of respecting the personality of the group, while managing to "herd the kittens" back into the realm of the topic of discussion for the day... She did a wonderful job of holding space for what came into the room and instead of changing the subject she taught us how to sit in discomfort when a volatile topic emerged. It was a lesson I will never forget in how to be present with whatever shows up..."
"SHE IS THE BEST! Great at letting discussion flow but pulling it back when needed. She tracks and makes sure all in the room are able to participate, and be heard. If any harm is every done she is great at facilitating it being explored and healed."
"Magdalena was an incredible instructor. I felt a lot of warmth and love in her class. She has a quiet, but powerful presence that allowed me to feel safe and open in the classroom. I've internalized so much of the information she's taught, that it feels like it is a part of me. I'm forever humbled and changed because of the way she has taught this class."
"Magdalena was a grounded and attuned instructor that created a safe space for the class. I felt she was extremely knowledgeable about the topics discussed, speaking from a personal and experienced place. I felt comfortable stating my opinions and reactions activities without feeling like I was going to penalized for them and she appreciated my honesty and realness when I spoke."
