People who have come to RENEW programs tell the story best. They speak of many positive changes:
TEAM WORK IMPROVES
"It was a treat to communicate with colleagues in a different setting and discuss topics other than the
routine ones from our daily work. RENEW's approaches allow valuable time for participants to share resources
and ideas again for both professional and personal challenges. This program was an innovative and effective
approach to address the stress and frustration that many teachers experience."
"This increased my humanity and collegiality. I am reminded of the strength, resources, and courage of those
"Meeting together with dedicated and wise nurses from throughout the community is helping us build a
"community of practice" that is contributing, through our own wellness and shared wisdom, to the health of
those we serve."
"Coming together can and does unite colleagues in an effort to solve commonly perceived problems."
VITALITY AND CONFIDENCE RETURN
"I am more in tuned with my body and my spirit and can recognize quickly when things are not as they should
be. I am more gentle and respectful with myself. I trust my inner voice again... what's even better - I
actually listen to it."
"I don't want to wait for a life crisis to do something."
"I have never had the moving of my spirit and validation of my existence as a result of participating in a
training class like RENEW's spirited presentation."
"You got me thinking in a good way, and helped me move in a positive and good direction"
"I am setting limits, reflecting, and starting more to look at my core values."
"In some ways, I'm better able to prioritize - sometimes by refusing to check my email!"
