What People are saying about Lapidus

I feel that Lapidus and the words for wellbeing movement is so aligned to the values that I live my life by – creativity, connection, communication and curiosity. Having been scribbling since 1989 when mum first handed me a pencil, and not really stopped since, Lapidus feels like a natural place for me to find myself.  - Francesca

I love to go to our Facebook page and see what others are doing, their challenges, their successes, and how they adapt ideas to their own group participants’ needs. And I take notes. It’s been like a continuing education.  And I’ve met so many helpful folks, who encourage me to try this and do what feels so right. - Susanna
