"I can't imagine my life without the Center. It has played such an important role in my healing journey, actually central to it. And I am only one of hundreds, maybe thousands over the years who have benefited from the Center and D and her practitioners in particular."


Although I shared some words at graduation and at the end of PK, I was truly at a loss for words, and frankly I still am. I am beyond amazed, blessed, activated, transformed by your influence in my life, on so many levels. Thank you thank you thank you. I love you so so much.


Thank you for providing a ‘Home’ to so many of us. Grateful for your creative input and inspiration and for the opportunity to serve! Joyful and juicy 2017."

"You are a TRUE healer or as us chicanas like to say, a TRUE CHINGONA and I am so grateful for the momentum and shifting occurring after our classes."


"I am in my third trimester of pregnancy and had a very uncomfortable, hot, itchy rash on my womb, arms, hands and neck. I came to Deanna with FOUR different options of what I thought it could be—PUPPS rash, Poison Oak, Candida, or COVID-19. Deanna did a pulse reading with me and through tuning into many different channels within the body—namely hormonal, blood, and immune system—she determined that it was Poison Oak. I treated the rash as such, and it has since healed completely. I am so grateful! Nobody else could figure it out, including skilled midwives and Kaiser doctors. It has made me understand the value of the Ancient Science of Ayurveda and pulse reading exponentially. Thank you!!!!"


"There really are no words adequate enough to convey what the last several months have meant to me. I never really believed I would ever find something that I could be passionate about, that I would not only feed my own soul but allow me to share with others in a way that isn’t just giving myself away. Every day I feel like I am coming into myself more and more, I’m remembering who Jenny is and discovering who she is now and what her hope and dreams are. I feel more alive and in my body and confident in my person today than I think I ever have and that alone is the biggest gift I could ever have hoped to receive. Thank you for providing such a sacred, safe place. I feel home when I cross the threshold at the center which is a feeling I’ve searched for as long as I can remember. Thank you for guiding me and supporting me and encouraging me through this process. I just feel so blessed to have you in my life and to be able to call you my teacher. There is so much more that I could say to you but it’s all caught up in my heart right now. I just want you to know how grateful I am and how much I love you."


"Wow. I’m not sure words can describe how thankful I am to have you as a teacher. I feel you are an answer to my over 2 year search and prayer for a woman medicine woman to learn from. Thank you for choosing this path (...or letting it choose you :)) making the path I am choosing that much clearer! Thank you for your beautiful endless giving which seems to flow out of you with such a wise grace. I feel blessed to know you. Many blessings in the year to come."


"DeAnna, I am in such awe of you! You are amazing on so many levels. Thank you. Thank you for choosing me as a client for PK. Thank you for all the love you give and the space you have provided to feel the safety for transformation to happen. Thank you for passing on the incredible, life changing wisdom and encouraging your students (children :)) to embody it. Thank you for your honesty, you trust, your openness to share and speak your truth. You have changed my life. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you from truly seeing me. I am so blessed to have you in my life. With great gratitude my heart is filled and my head bows with respect. Love, love, love."


"This was amazing. The topic was one of my Pistons and DeAnna did an excellent job organizing it, making it user Friendly, fun, and incredibly useful, starting right away. What a resource for anyone! Interesting points of view. “Informative, comprehensive, easy to understand and lively session” The presentation was excellent, as was her first presentation (part 1). She has a delightful way of delivering the information. Very engaging. Absolutely beautiful! Great learning experience."


"Thanks DeAnna, for the advice and the gift! I appreciate you very much. I'm currently training in acupuncture. I love the depth of herb-ology in Chinese medicine, but miss the tactile hands-on approach to how you taught Ayurved. The contrast between acupuncture's more "sterile" technique and your ability to connect with people in the full range of humanness is pretty dramatic. Thank you for being you."
