Fear. Permanent, unstoppable fear of any speaking situation.
Brotherhood and Solidarity VS their Stutter
We had 6 new brave students; all men - 2 coverts / 4 overts, ages from 22 to 42 years old.
We started on Wednesday 28 of November a 7PM sharp, accompanied by family members of the new students.
Thursday went by very quickly. The "heaviest" day of the course turned out to be very enjoyable and successful. By focusing on the physical aspects we covered all the bases really fast and with exact coordination.
Letting go of fear and leaving behind their stutter
The course started on Wednesday the 31st with a brief explanation of the physical and psychological concepts of a stutter by Alfredo, in order to familiarize new students with the subject that would be seen in greater depth during the course. Then, it was time for interviews with the new students, who felt nervous and uncomfortable to expose themselves to this difficult situation, but they all managed to pass through it, showing us their true speech situation, which they should overcome in the course.

The course started on Wednesday the 24th with a brief introduction to the McGuire Programme, later on with the new student videos.
On Thursday we started with the physical part of the programme, the new students at the beginning were a little confused, but quickly they started to comprehend the tecniques and how the programme works.
On Friday we started with the psychological part. At night they made phone calls to the graduates and their families, it was a very emotional moment for everyone.
Raising Our Voice in Bogotá, Colombia
On Wednesday afternoon, another fascinating McGuire course started. The new students were in expectation of what the course was and its subsequent development, each one presenting themselves by saying their name, address, telephone and the name of their parents and siblings, as well as what they expected from this course. The next day in the morning everyone started very motivated, developing and understanding the physical weapons of a stutter and at that moment they could say their name, address and phone number.
