Judy Bastin, Certified Addiction Counselor

I first met Renée at the Ecopsychology Conference at Earthrise Retreat Center at IONs in March 2017. She did an incredible presentation on shame, which gave me a whole new perspective on how to look at, and work with, such a painful emotion.

We both volunteer at San Quentin prison in different areas and I asked her if she would come and do a shame presentation for the addiction recovery aftercare group I facilitate with the men. It was amazing how the men responded to her hands-on approach! They loved it, asked loads of questions and, wanted more.

As a result, Renee is now working with our aftercare group, where inmates strive to better themselves, learn how to be authentic, and work together as a community. Renée is one of those rare people who is helping them do this.

We’re very grateful to have such a caring and gifted teacher. I highly recommend any workshop she may give.
