APEC 2 helped me to consolidate and extend my learning from APEC 1. The terminologies for the Extraordinary Channels became ever more familiar to me during the course, which enabled me to continue to develop my understanding of the functions of the Channels and of the new protocols in this course. As I worked with fellow students to learn the new protocols, I became increasingly aware of the profound energetic levels at which these Channels work. As a practitioner, my own understanding and practice has been hugely enhanced by what I learned on APEC 2. Jill Stern, KFRP UK
