Past Participants Say...

Luke B.

The course was one of the most powerful workshops of my life and it was exactly what I needed. I’ve been putting the practices into my life and watching the results show up almost everyday. It’s incredible. The work is like a key that is unlocking my life and allowing me to blow by blockages that I’ve tripped over for years. So again thank you, thank you, thank you.

At the Closer workshop, Ryel paired us up, and took us through guided questions meant to dig deep and really get to know one another.  By the end, I felt like I hadn’t made meaningless small talk and that I hadn’t been robotically evaluating people with checklists, but instead getting to know them IN REAL LIFE. Since the workshop, I’ve been a lot more honest with the people I date, instead of hiding my emotions or trying to be someone else who has different preferences.

Jessica K.

It’s impossible to learn how to build deeper connections alone, which is what makes Closer workshops so special. It’s the perfect way to practice showing up as your most authentic self with a group. Ryle creates an atmosphere that’s both fun, and educational which really helped me connect to myself while Sophy curated a group of like minded people. I came away with a few fun dates and a couple new friends.
