HAWAII WELLNESS INSTITUTE
June 1, 2010
My first experience with Sunny was when I met her at a Women's Health Expo several years ago. I was so encouraged by the fact that there was such an organization as HWI!
A few years later, I met Sunny again while she was providing training to a new group of Hospice volunteers which I was with. Her training and coaching was both amazing and empowering!
Finally, I signed up to take the Certified Wellness Counselor course in 2007. What a huge asset Sunny's training has been to me! I use these skills in so many different areas of my life, it is just wonderful!
When I volunteer to provide Reiki services to residents of a nursing home, hospice and rehab center, the CWC way of re-framing, has helped me tremendously to provide my services with extra ease. I sometimes watch an almost instant transformation and a glimmer of light in other people's eyes as I go through the steps which Sunny taught us help our "clients" to feel empowered. I even have found these skills to be very helpful when dealing with the general public, whether it be at the grocery store or dealing with a customer service situation at a business. Of course, my family and friends appreciate the way I have learned how to be a better listener and once again, re-frame as appropriate.
In closing, I am very grateful for the extreme dedication and hard work which both Sunny and Roshani have put into this organization. They are extremely accessible and have always offered to help whenever I have reached out to them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
them offering great support as I was dealing with the challenges with my teen. Both Sunny and Roshani offered guidance and assistance. They truly helped me to realize that I wasn't alone during a couple of very bleak periods with my daughter.
