CitC’s Masters of Service Degree affirms that the Holder has completed, and fully understood, gaz regan’s Mindful Bartending Workshop, and has put the program into action.

gaz sez:

Since the CitC workshop Selma wrote to tell me that she meditates every morning, and before each shift behind the bar, concentrating on, “how can I be of service to my fellow humans and to myself.”

“I am still processing the whole experience in many ways, and I can assure you I think about everything [we discussed in the workshop] every day,” she said, adding that her personal motto is “always be righteous, always be sincere.”

Congratulations on your Masters of Service Certificate, Selma. Nicely earned.
