“Lorca traces the contours of our lives and helps us recognize the beauty of the deep canyons, the power of how to run fleet footed with the fears for a moment, and then the way to take the strength from running and offer it to our communities as a gift. Our leadership is needed, now more than ever, and Lorca floats the tools we need to to surface so that our work becomes effortless.”

“Lorca is remarkable in her ability to work with educators to create a dynamic where they feel safe working with each other and within themselves. Because teachers can often give themselves to the point where they leave their profession, she trained our staffs in understanding how caring for themselves is caring for their careers.”
