"This is my third time coming to the professional retreat, and something that has become an annual thing for our team and our clients. There is a reason I fly From Norway to La Conner, and that's to get the best training in the world and spend time with George, Linda and Barb, whose professional support is only surpassed by their humanness, commitment to service and love for people. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend you make the trip over there!"
- Eirik Grunde Olsen
"I attended the last two Professional Trainings and I can not recommend this training highly enough. It's a unique chance to learn directly from Barbara Patterson and George and Linda Pransky, who are world-class coaches individually, and pure gold when they teach together.During the previous trainings, I was very touched by the depth of the teaching, but also by its exceptional (and unique!) freshness. Although the subject of the training is not new (The Three Principles), George, Linda and Barb always surprise and delight me every time with concepts, distinctions and metaphors that are very fresh and new. The Professional training is also a great opportunity to meet and connect with a group of warmhearted, openminded people from all over the world, hang out in beautiful La Conner, and taste it's delicious cuisine! Don't miss this opportunity!"

"The depth and richness of understanding is more than enough reason to attend the Professional Training weekend with Pransky & Associates. The fact that you also get to hang out with a lot of cool people and that it's tremendous fun is the reason why I have it in my planner...indefinitely."
"The Professional Training weekend was a wonderful opportunity to learn from George, Linda & Barb. The icing on the cake was the opportunity to gather for 4 days with practitioners that are taking this understanding into the world in so many unique ways and realize the community that I belong to . The Professional Training weekend is time well spent."
"The upcoming professional training will be my third and it gets better every time. With the Three Principles, there is always more to learn, and because each group is different, the understanding that emerges is unique and rich in its own way."
"The Pransky & Associates Professional Trainings have been the occasion of some of my deepest and most enjoyable learning about the Three Principles. I look forward every year to gathering with other practitioners and gaining fresh insight, confidence, and ease in my own work."
- Molly Gordon
"I absolutely loved the professional training this time last year. The 4 days has it all; the very latest of George, Linda and Barb, how they are seeing this work unfolding in just about every field as well as chance to hang out with friends and like-minded folks. I honestly can't believe the value they're offering, quite honestly they could easily charge double that. I would recommend this experience to anyone - it's one of my favorites and can't wait to go back again this year!"
- Denise Holland
"The Pransky’s Professional Training is the one training that I will not miss. I have been for two years and the quality, depth and feeling of the conversation is truly amazing. George, Linda and Barb seem to know exactly what the group needs in order to grow personally and professionally and their talks hit the bullseye. The small group breakouts allow for deepening while the location in La Conner is unbeatable for a retreat. Count me in."
- Scott Kelly
"After dipping my toe into the world of the Principles via books and youtube, I just had to get on a plane and experience an in room training with the Pransky's . Well, I made it to La Conner and to the day I die, I'll always be grateful for the fact that I did. Life just keeps getting better."
- David Key
"The Professional training at Pransky and Associates was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed meeting Three Principles practitioners from all over the world, and it is always a powerful learning experience when George, Linda, and Barb are teaching."
- Rohini Ross
"The first time I attended the Professional Training Program was live. I was surprised at how much value I received from my participation the program virtually! The virtual option exceeded my expectations. The morning Q & A as well as having our own small group supported by two mentees was wonderful!"
"I attended the most recent Professional Retreat virtually and was more than satisfied with both the retreat and the way the online attendance was structured. I loved being on Zoom calls with people around the world and having morning sessions with the seminar presenters. Excellent!"
"What can I say - this was just fantastic - the insights I had were life changing and watching George and Linda coach live was invaluable. I will try to go again next year. Can you do something similar in the UK please!"
"The Sept retreat was my first encounter with George and Linda and Barb. tIt's been two months and I am still having ahhh moments and insights that seem to come out of no where. I was unable to attend live and chose to do the course via the virtual stream option. I felt as if I was in the room enjoying the feeling of being an active participant. Since Sept my confidence has deepened, my focus has structure, my clarity has expanded and my appreciation and sense of gratitude has been enriched. My heartfelt thanks to George and Linda and Barb and to the mentors who stood by to gently guide me along this path... It's as if I've been handed the rule book on how to be a compassionate, caring human being... and the interesting part is that there isn't a rule book. What I've come away with is grounding and understanding and it seems to be allowing myself to be my best self... expansive, clear, quiet and openhearted.... Thank you"
