I have taken the "Heal the Healer" workshops a number of times and every time I have learned something new that has been enormously helpful in my day to day life. There is something for everyone in the Heal the Healer workshops - the kind of insights and little adjustments that even a novice can feel empowered by learning and implementing. Kira Ferrand and the Go to Health team are deeply committed healers and enormously talented people especially gifted in translating their deep knowledge and experience into usable bits of healing for the layperson. I really can't praise this highly enough and look forward to the next workshop I can participate in - this service is not something to miss! This is definitely a service that needs to get out to a wide audience.

I have been a client of Kira Ferrand's for several years and never cease to be amazed at the skill and expertise she brings to her work. She is a truly gifted practitioner and stands apart from her peers in terms of knowledge and deep healing wisdom. I have participated in the "Heal the Healer" Workshops several times and not only had an engaging learning experience but took away tips and practices that I could immediatley implement in my own life. This is a wonderful organization led by a visionary who understands the importance for health care providers to live their work through self healing techniques.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The results of my experiences continue to positively impact my life as the techniques I learned continue to assist me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only change I see needed is to get their message and service out to a wider audience!

Kira Ferrand is an amazing healer and facilitator of healing techniques. I attended two of her Heal the Healer workshops and benefited enourmously from both. I learned stress resuction techniques that I use daily as well as awareness techniques that have been life changing. Kira's teachings are consistent in their value yet she tailors the workshop to the needs of the participants. Any oppprtunity to work with Kira and learn is an opportunity not to be missed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways... including a deeper understanding of self, improved stress management, and overall health.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Kira Ferrand, the facilitator. And the techniques I learned about awarenes and stress managment that are useful everyday.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

lovely.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help so many more people - it would be amazing!!!

I would like to submit a positive review of a Non-Profit organization that
i believe is an excellent and worthy candidate for the top-ratedt Non-Profits
list. A recent workshop, part of the GoToHealth PlayLab, was " Heal The
Healer" directed by the practitioner, Kira Ferrand, PhD. She is well-organized,
superbly compassionate and creative, addressing the specific needs of health-care workers
and healers. The PlayLab is evidence of GoToHealth's sensitivity to the needs
of those of us who work in the field of healthcare.

Kira Laura-Ferrand is a true healer in every sense of the word -- she is enormously empathic, caring, knowledgeable, and skilled. On top of that she has an intuitive and innovative sense of how health care can be transformed in ways that actually address the health and wellness needs of ALL people. My own work with Kira has been transformative.

I participated in Go to Health's "Heal the Healer" workshop (led by Kira Ferrand) a couple of times and found it to be nothing short of amazing. As a former cancer patient, stress and anxiety occasionally creeps in, and that's certainly not a good thing for maintaining optimal health following such an illness. The Heal the Healer workshop provided me with skills and insights needed to nip this anxiety in the bud, calm down and relax, and understand how to zoom in and focus on the signals, big and small, my body sends to my mind--definitely a worthwhile workshop, and I'm looking forward to attending another session.

The two PLaYLaB Heal the Healer workshops I have taken with Kira Laura Ferrand are truly serving me well in my daily life. They have provided me with a series of simple yet far-reaching energizing techniques that enable me to relieve daily stress and, as Ms. Ferrand advises, "always be doing yoga," no matter what I am doing or where I am. These multidisciplinary techniques, which are helping me to de-mechanize my body, as well as my mind, are as familiar and accessible as foot flexing, alternate nostril breathing, and gently massaging key pressure points on my hands, head and legs. and they are all at my fingertips. I highly recommend the PLaYLaB workshops to one and all.

I attended the heal the healer PLayLaB with Kira Ferrand and it was one of the most useful experiences in years of collecting information about how to help my body cope with stress. In a few short hours I learned dozens of easy-to-learn, easy-to-implement techniques that I can use at home but also on a plane, in a hotel room, even at my desk to relax and feel good. I've shared many of the things I've learned with my friends, colleagues and family to whom Kira is now a household name, even if they've never met her! So there is a small chorus in this review chanting KI-RA! KI-RA! KI-RA! thank you!!!!

I've attended a Go To Health workshop and found the information to be helpful, inspiring and enlightening. Kira Ferrand is offering a great service, and dispenses her knowledge with humor, heart, and most of all, compassion for her audience.

I came to a Care for the Caretaker workshop at Go To Health through the Playlab here in NYC and left feeling nourished, honored and armed with information and self care techniques!, I was so inspiring! Our teacher, Kira Ferrand was clear, nurturing and knowledgeable about the body & breath work, Yoga/ meditation she was teaching us. I'm doing the work she taught us, and feel lighter and more joyful in my body, mind and heart. Thank you Kira! And when is the next workshop? I'll be there! Jeanne

In the wake of Hurrican Sanday and the destruction to lives and homes in and around NYC, it was a blessing to be uplifted and taught to uplift myself by the Heal the Healers PlayShop lead by Kira of GotoHealth. I am handling the post-storm stress now like I never could have imagined. Bless Kira and GotoHealth.

Kira helped me to heal an old injury that I had carried around for 18 years! The relief was exquisite. She is a very professional and knowledgeable healer with such a wide range of skills that she will surely be able to help just about anyone get healthy.

Found relief from a very old injury

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

let more people know about her skills so there would be more healthy people in the world!

I attended Kira's workshop called "Heal The Healer," though I myself am not in the healing business. I figure there is at least one person in the world we are all responsible for healing, and that is ourselves, so I am a healer! Though there were many beneficial parts to the workshop, and many things I have tried to incorporate into my daily routine, the most valuable part of it for me was learning how to breath correctly. I have long known that my breathing patterns weren't good, but had never had anyone show me how to change the pattern and breath correctly. Now I spend 5 minutes every day sitting quietly and practicing breathing. Life saving! Thanks, Kira.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

More body awareness. Better breathing!!!
