The Matrix model creates such a web of expression, range, and intelligence in groups that I have never experienced before. I believe this work is so needed in the world in all areas, family, work, government, neighborhoods, schools, any community setting could use the Matrix model and go to dimensions never before explored, experienced or revealed. I look forward to the growth of this model in the world and the change it can make to human lives.
