Two books are central to this Teacher Training:
“Holding Space does just that for each of us. In a clear, intimate voice, Amy Wright Glenn shares her own experience and wisdom and by doing so makes a space for her reader to develop the same. For anyone going through loss, this book will feel like a treasure.”
—Sharon Salzberg, Lovingkindness and Real Love
Amy has a wonderful ‘humanness’ that allows her to
connect with her audience in a way that is both comforting and useful.
~Bob Mattingly, Executive Director, Center for Spirituality and Ethical Education
Amy thoughtfully and lovingly teaches and sheds light
in a place that is usually associated with so much darkness.
She teaches with great courage.
I feel very grateful for her work.
~ Nikki Echabarne, birth and postpartum doula, California
