November 2018. “I was very clear that I could write a good letter, but a book was a whole diﬀerent story. The smartest thing I ever did was asking for much needed help to turn my good idea into an interesting, well written book that anyone who picked it up would be engaged and at the same time get something valuable for themselves. Sunday Larson did that for me and my book. Her interactions were always honest and at the same time kind and would continually make a powerful impact on the content. She would read what I wrote from how my target audience would read, never from just how great I thought something should sound! Her feedback was thoughtful and authentic and her appreciation of the work we were doing together was always encouraging, even when I would occasionally lose steam. If you have a book in you, let Sunday pull it out and have you be your best possible writer. She is also one of the most creative people I have ever known.” Susan Henkels, MSW, author What If There Is Nothing Wrong With You, SMH Publications, 2019.

November 22, 2016. “The space Sunday provided is perfect – when I stepped through the door I felt a great sense of peace. It was so powerful I actually stopped – savoring that feeling. The day was filled with quiet reflection and fun laughter. I came away with a whole new concept of “I am from …” It’s not a place at all! I am from my father’s code of conduct, my mother’s wisdom, the smell of new mown hay and the fragrance of honey dripping from the comb. I am from the colors, the textures, the feel of all my experiences – and this was only a part of a very special experience. Thank you so much Sunday.”Anita J, Mesa, AZ
Sept 29, 2016. “After checking my diary, Group will celebrate our 12th anniversary in February.Yes, we are a support group, but we are so much more. We continue, to read, study and learn.

“I met Sunday Larson at a workshop she gave during Peace Week in Sedona in February, 2013. I was so impressed and inspired by her that I asked her if she would work with me one on one on a writing project. We met to talk about goals and expectations and I became a student of hers. Sunday has helped me with so many things, on so many levels. I have been working on a book for the last 5 years and continually get stuck. I was about to give up and then I found Sunday. I have written more in the 5 months that I’ve been working with Sunday than I have in five years! She inspires me to keep moving forward with my best work. She is kind, encouraging, honest, funny, smart, compassionate, interesting and interested and I trust her. At times I feel she is my therapist as working with her really brings me to a raw and revealing place. This allows me to write from that place and it shows. What I love best about Sunday is that she always meets me where I am. Before I worked with Sunday I was fearful to share my thoughts and writing. I have grown more confident as a result of my work with her and I see myself growing on so many levels. I had no idea working with her would be this intense, rewarding and productive. I am so grateful to have met her and to be able to work with her. Deb Karpek, Peaceful World Reiki, www.debkarpek.com

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us and taking time and devotion to do so. I really admire that, I also really like the way you see the world and continue to open yourself for more growth as well as respecting others “eye” and nature. You are fun and interesting.” Vicky
