what people are saying about drew

"Went beyond my imagination! Drew brought a well-organized workshop, sharing his insanely gifted writing, immense world/literary knowledge and dedication to Thomas Berry and the topic of cosmology. This felt imperative to my journey toward full awareness...I loved putting words on paper, unleashing my closet writer!
