I took this class from the author. I was hooked from the first moment I walked in the room. There was color, shapes, ideas, questions, about everything. He is both entertaining and knowledgeable. every word had meanings on top of meanings. I hope to write whole courses using his techniques. His teaching methods are holistic!
