I appreciated the attention to detail with regard to your studio space, the variety of art materials, the time needed to set up for the horse sessions, the binder, journal and course materials and the refreshments. All provided a professional yet at the same time a comfortable feel to each session. I felt "cared for" and worthy.
I recognized that you were walking your talk; this is important to me. You weren't just selling a program, you were actually a practitioner of the practice. On some occasions I felt rushed (self- imposed) because there was a lot to cover in 2 hours - nature connection + art and horse session. Sometimes it took me a while to make decisions about which mediums to use as I am not accustomed to them all. We always went over time!
I appreciated the follow up coaching calls and found I was able to make further connections and discover new insights. It reminded me again of the importance of Presence, both for the coach and the coachee. I have a preference for face-to-face in order to be able to read the body language and connect in a more intimate way. Of course, this is not always possible and phone sessions are a necessity these days.
I appreciated your willingness to receive my insights and reflections and to provide some further thoughts. I also appreciated that I could voice my resistance knowing it would be received and acknowledged rather than being brushed away. Very important when vulnerability surfaces! Thank you for your willingness to work with me! I hope to keep my Soul on Fire!"

"I had no idea what to expect and have to admit the idea of journaling was kind of intimidating. I was comfortable, however, from the time we arrived and was taken completely by the wonderful ambience of the structure. You led us through some interesting, calming, challenging and above all, enlightening exercises. I will highly recommend this to anyone!"

"Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Sherri comes away feeling stronger about themselves and their place in the world. Well worth the time!"

"I first met Sherri through some mutual friends. We came to know each other socially through her drum-making workshop. We got to know each other personally through an Eco-Art project. Sherri is full of laughter and infinite patience. She listens with all her senses. There are times in your life when you are blessed to meet an extraordinary person at just the right moment of your journey. For me, Sherri is just such a person. The drum making workshop is more than learning to make a drum. The Eco-Art Project was also about discovery. Sherri did not lead me; she created a safe and warm space where I could explore. We talked a lot. We laughed and blasted some crazy tunes into the woodland surrounding her yurt. And, we were also silent. I arrived at her beautiful studio ready to create what I wanted. I left her beautiful studio without creating what I intended, but I created what I needed. This is Sherri’s gift."

"It was a pure pleasure working with Sherri Phibbs. During our process of creating nature-informed art, deep healing work took place and both brought up and resolved (!) old wounds that I was not even aware of any more. Sherri was incredible in holding the process, giving directions (both artistic and spiritual) and guiding us through the experience with gentleness and a great sense of humor - what a great combination. Sherri's knowledge of land and wildlife is incredible, and her reflections on our experiences helped unravel what wanted to show itself. It was truly transformative. What a bliss to have met you! Thanks for making experiences like this one happen on your beautiful land. You'll see us again for sure!"
With deep gratitude, Anna F., Graphic Artist, Germany
"You MUST experience this magical transformation .....thoughts & feelings coming to life before your own eyes....you are actually breathing life into your artwork piece...A truly amazing way to create something so personal & special ...."

"It had a nice pace between the hands-on work and the reflection time. The setting is exquisite. I will treasure my drum and the memory of making it. Thank you for creating and offering this workshop. I would like to bring a group of ladies next spring!"
~ Joanne N., Calgary
"Thank you for allowing enough time and thoughtful, heart-centred activities to expand the subtleties of my senses. There seemed to be plenty of time to share, create, explore, get sideways, cry, laugh, accept and give help, instruction, guidance and assurance. It was a comfortable, beautiful, welcoming space, infused with natural beauty and art. Your instruction was kind and open with vagueness when needed and specifics when needed. I learned so much about myself and it was a timely workshop to remind myself that I am nature not just in it. Very grateful."
~ Sandra D'Acey, Calgary

"And what the forest whispered to me
was that the magic was there for me to see i
f only I could read between the lines.
The Sun wrought heat like a fever glow
upon the slowly melting snow
as it freed the stalwart pines.
In it's shrouds of sheer mystique
I watched the shadows of the clouds that peek
that would soon explain everything.
Indeed they did with a rhyming wind
that rustled smoothly as if in rescind
that Winter is the Harbinger of Spring"
