From Thought to Action: A Message from Daniel & Judith

We believe that relationships of all kinds are the most powerful learning ground for growing and evolving. Our focus is on teaching practical skills that help you make your relationships fun, inspiring, fulfilling, and functional. We consider ourselves guides, not gurus.


We have each spent more than three decades doing personal development work. Married since 1987, we practice what we teach. At the same time, we partner with people in a variety of settings to help them bring out the best in themselves.
