The information was well put together, easy to follow and the result was such a positive one. Dr. Halpern is truly what made this course for me. His presence and ability to communicate to all of us is one that is rarely found.
Dr. Halpern brings out information that cannot be drawn from a book.
Marc is the best teacher I have ever worked with.
It was perfect!
Dr. Halpern is a wonderful guide and has great clarity in teaching.
This is the part of the program that really made me want to change my life.
Clear, Concise, Balanced
It was really great to learn more about Ayurveda from Dr. Halpern. I appreciate how he is so organized and gave unconditionally from his heart. He is very clear, concise and balanced.
I was very excited and surprised at how much we focused on energy and pranic healing. This knowledge is necessary and will never be forgotten. The experience was so gratifying and there is nothing else I would rather have been doing.
As a full-time bodyworker, I will use this information every day.
I loved it. The material was so magic.
