"The time, effort, professionalism, let alone the in-depth research and resourcefulness that Lora O'Brien provides within the classes, lectures, workshops, and general offerings is top notch and superior to most claiming to be teaching in such fields today - genuine, authentic and native material from an equally genuine, authentic, native provider/facilitator."

- Dorn Simon (Ireland)
