“This workshop established a safety zone for me to prepare for an uncertain family health future”. Judy Brown
"I highly recommend the “Soul Path” workshop with Deb Knox and Gail McMeekin. I recently spent 4 days with these wonderful facilitators and a group of 13 participants at beautiful Ferry Beach, Maine. We spent our time making and sharing SoulCollage(R) Cards and writing/sharing personal spiritual stories from our lives. The space that Deb and Gail created was very safe and nurturing. I came home feeling deeply connected with the other participants, as well as with a new found connection with myself." Carol Rosinski
"I LOVED IT! I love the combination—through this spiritual autobiography process I can explore memories and events in my life to discover their meaning, influence, and impact on me." Susan Fuller
"A great way to access the inner wisdom of your life stories when we are bombarded with media and information. We are losing connection to our own thoughts and inner guide." Carol Gallagher
"I experienced a life-changing, re-framing of my long life...I learned that, as I wrote, "I am my story", not the negative one I tell myself, but the whole story this time. I learned that I am all that I have learned, shared, given. I am all I have accomplished and aspired to, not just the leaps that landed short of the goal and traumas that set me back. I learned that my accomplishments are not luck or totally someone else's doing. “I am not just my story"- the one I have told myself. "I am more than my story." I choose to rewrite my story and honestly embrace and build on who I have become and perhaps was all along. What did I take away?- Peace, levity, freedom and joyful anticipation." Leslie Seabury
