Testimonials

“…the sense of equality among us- delightful, lovely, relaxing, and the humbleness that goes with it, the fact that we’re all in a learning process together, and mirrors and support for each other.  I have felt included which is a big thing for me, very accepted and even appreciated to my surprise.”
~Claire

“I want to compliment you in this situation with all these different personalities, and emotions at times flying. You were able to treat everyone with such respect and patience and love and I think you guys did a great job of keeping us centered and focused on what we were doing here and I really appreciate that.”
~Tricia

 

“I am in awe of every one of you. I cannot tell you how much it’s opened me to life in a way I have not lived for so long, and (the you) share each one of your gifts to me. Even the morning walks; I’m seeing things that I have shut off for so long. There’s a part of me that is cut off, like all these gorgeous trees around here. Where is there a limb in me that I have cut off, and I get to grow it back. There’s life in that tree still, and it can grow back. I am overwhelmed in a way that I never thought would be good, amazing, childlike. There is something brand new. I’m so excited to see the rest of my life and I didn’t come here for that.  So I am so grateful to you and I am really so grateful for this work this week.”

“What I’m taking away is just a great appreciation for how each person comes to this and has something to offer and bring to me and really that sense of the universe is friendly and seeing it in the way that the food was shared and people want to facilitate one another and the contributions and so much gratitude for the team who put this together because I know it’s not a big money-making event and it’s so delightful to feel the genuine sense of service to freedom for all of us.”
~Florida Candidate

“I’m so glad I came here because it’s like a new commitment for me sharing with everybody.  I feel like I got it, at least I’m in the process, and I know it works.  You all have been interesting, and I’ve learned from everybody, and I’ll be here next year.”
~ Ellen

“Support is the word for me too.  I just did a worksheet on, ‘my puppy is going to totally disrupt the camp,’ and I almost didn’t come, and I got the sense from all of you and from Sandy(puppy) that this group has gone from being a bunch of strangers to being family and I just want to thank you all for all the support, all the love.  He knows he is safe with everyone here.  Thank you so much!”

“I’m grateful for the beautiful place.  This is such a nice place to do The Work with the weather being beautiful and swimming in that gorgeous lake, so warm, so nice.  What I feel in this group is the unguardedness of everyone.  Everyone feels like themselves, people feel totally comfortable being themselves naturally in the group and that gives everyone permission to do the same.  So I feel that and comfortable to be safe and myself and all of you create this…in my mind.  I take away a connection with people to do The Work.  And that I have a group down the road in Seattle that I can do this with.  Thank you so much for organizing this.  Because of your commitment to organizing this..thank you so much!  I love the humor too!”

“What I’m taking away is all the love I’ve experienced here these last few days.  I know a lot of that love is because you 6 people put your heads and hearts together for all of us.

Specifically, what I’m taking away is my relationship to The Work over a lot of years is really just seeing how much more there is in terms of going in.  I really went in and I really got a lot.  It really renews my belief in humanity, in myself, and I think I was ready for some renewal.  I can thank these magnificent trees that I’ve been under these days.  I thought it was going to be distracting to be outside among such beauty, it just took me all the way, much deeper….I realized the personal little piece I got is how it doesn’t take much for me to feel criticized and how important it is for people to like me and that has to do with my childhood, and I got that I can go from feeling whole inside to feeling separate and how much that has to do with believing my thoughts.  Just to get that at the emotional level, just the piece about how I do my life so people won’t criticize me.  I felt safe to drop down to the emotional place and get it; I got it.”
