This Torch training was amazing. I got to let out my emotional experiences in a positive way rather than turning to liquor or drugs. I discovered a better and improved me who is great.

This was the best thing I could have ever done on a weekend. In the Torch training I learned to honor my word as myself. I will take that lesson with me forever and make the world a better place beginning with me.
