We started a group email exchange with the women from the last bodysex group. Here's one of the responses (gives me chills):

Hi my lovely friends,

I hope you are all as happy as I am. When I walked into Betty's place, I walked in with sadness from many things that have happened in my life and from many things that I have wonted to happened in my life that have not. When I walked out of Betty's that Sunday night, and I do not know about anyone else, but I did not wont to leave. I was different, I felt different and at first, I did not know what had changed, but there was a change.

As I watched you all leave one by one, I hoped the change that I felt, was not the energy of all of you in that room.

After having a lovely dinner with Stacey and we parted ways too. I was walking down the streets of New York, I realized I still felt great. The energy in that room had healed me. The energy of all of you and all that we shared there, had healed me. I was happy, truly happy, for the first time in a very long time and for that I must thank you all. I will always be grateful I was there with all of you. My heart is filled with joy, love and happiness and it gets bigger every day. My sadness is gone and my body shame is gone and my confidence is back and stronger then ever.

Thank you for being there for me, I will always be there for all of you.

Have a great day my friends
