Marshall Wilensky - Sanford, NC

Marshall Wilensky began his intense study of The Wisdom WAY™ with the men's-only (W)hole Shop 1 in March 2012, just three months after his first wife died.  (W)hole Shops 3 and 4 were instrumental in helping him move beyond his grieving and ready himself for the next seasons of his life.  He has taken (W)hole Shops 1 through 7 (some more than once) and is eagerly awaiting (W)hole Shop 8.  Marshall continues to study The Wisdom WAY in the more advanced classes including Being the EYE (I) of the Storm, Black Swan Arising, and others.

Marshall completed both of the year-long (W)hole Life Coaching (WLC) programs and can coach individuals and PAIRs™ (People Activating Intimate Relating).  Having completed the year-long Apprentice Radiance Teacher (ART) program, Marshall can teach (W)hole Shop 1 which he has done twice.

Marshall's career in Information Technology included programming, system management, network administration, technical writing, consulting, training, course development, and customer support.  He and his first wife, Candace Leiden, wrote "TCP/IP For Dummies".  It was all non-emotional, head-centered work without real interpersonal relationships.  The Wisdom Way helped Marshall transition to a heart-centered and relational way of life.
