“The experience that Peter facilitated for all of us became a foundation for my acting and personal growth in a very profound way. It was magical and quite revolutionary, and having worked with Peter in many other classes since then, I am not surprised any more. Everything that Peter does has a touch of magic and I am profoundly grateful for having the privilege to experience it."
