Kommentar über Larry's Kurse


"Als ich Larry Ibarra Fredes vor einigen Jahren kennenlernte, war mir schnell klar was für ein hervorragender Therapeut und Lehrer mit unglaublichem Wissen in Chinesischer Medizin und besonderer Mensch, der dieses Wissen auch im Alltag mit Herzlichkeit und Bescheidenheit lebt, er ist. 

Leider ist mein Vorhaben von ihm zu lernen an meinen nicht vorhandenen portugiesischen Sprachkenntnissen gescheitert, bis ich dann letzten April endlich einen Yijing-Kurs in Englisch mit ihm organisieren konnte. 

Dieser Kurs hat meine Erwartungen/Wünsche nochmal weit übertroffen. 

Ich hoffe sehr, dass der Kurs "Luo Vessels Acupuncture" nur der Anfang von regelmässigen Kursen mit Larry in Rheinbach sein wird und freue mich schon sehr darauf mehr von ihm zu lernen.

Ich kann den Kurs und Larry als Dozenten nur aus vollstem Herzen empfehlen."
