Before this course, I felt as though my life had spiraled out of my control. I was angry, confused, lost, and in so much pain. I didn't know what to do but I knew I had to do something! With the help of my dad, we found this course and the means for me to go.
I am sure the experience contained similarities and differences for all who attended, but I can tell you what I learned from it all. I learned to breathe. I learned how to get out of my head and back into my body. I learned that each individual has his or her own pain and that I can't take that away from them no matter how much I try or how much I sacrifice. It is their pain, not mine. I learned how to love, without losing myself and getting caught up in everyone else's "stuff." I learned how to forgive myself; to accept myself as the pure, innocent and beautiful being I was born as. I learned to live in the moment. I learned to love myself - without the need for others to prove it or not prove it to me. I learned to breathe.
I am finally free.
I further wanted to express the fact that I shared this experience with the most amazing, open, loving, supportive group of people I have ever been with. We arrived as total strangers and left (after five days) as close friends. Many will go their own way and many will remain forever friends. I will always feel very warm in my heart with the memory of them all and the experiences we had together.
I recommend this course to anyone who is lost or wants to feel connected. I recommend it to anyone who strives for peace and contentment in life. I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel loved. In fact, I simply recommend it to everyone.
There are no sufficient words to describe the lightness and warmth that I feel since this amazing experience.
