"The energy work that I have done with Richard Popp has been instrumental in assisting me to really begin clearing all the 'stuff' that gets in my way of truly being present to life. You know the stuff: negative thoughts and feelings that take over your mind, being stuck in a cycle and not being able to get where you think you want to go, taking on other peoples stuff to the point where you don't know what is you and what is others."  M.W.
