  1. I love and miss watching John speak. He has such beautiful hands and I love the way he talks with them. I can say he is one of the most patient people I have ever met. In this day of instant gratification, he is a quiet, solid rock amid the chaos. I can say that I was one of his students who did not have what it takes to stay with the process from beginning to end. It’s a time consuming, soul searching, slow, mirroring process that was just too intense on many levels for me. John is a saint for sticking with it all these years and he is a mega talent. His work is stunning. I learned a lot from John and perhaps he’ll read this review. If so….thank you.
