His workshops on the subject of self-realization and personal growth are a blend of deep inquiry, guided visualization, partner work, journaling, and movement exploration. Trey is truly unique and thoroughly delicious. He adds a dash of humor, and a splash of compassion, to the fascinating journey of embracing your Self.
