Testimonials for Workshops
What way will we choose to be helped to wholeness, to wellness of being? I attended Keith Varnum’s Workshop, Vortex of Abundance, this afternoon. What I love about Keith is his easy style, his whimsical approach to the ever-expanding interpretation of what seems common but in his creative hands, never is. How many approaches are there to abundance? More than you can perceive.Tired and repetitive the rhetoric might drone on with what has been heard again and again, and in the end is not as useful as might be hoped for… but not with Keith. He is the fresh breath of Holy Spirit to look and be renewed and enlivened, the physical movement and engagement of the body in change and expansion, I allowed myself the nourishment of his facilitation of what needed assistance within me. It was a gift to be energetically morphed to a new place of identifying stuck spots and allowing them to be undone; I could see a connection of two spots with a spiral cord that expanded out and then just disappeared. Thank you, dear Keith, for the simple tools that unlock imagined “lacks” in all facets of our being to be opened to finding and receiving answers, ways and means, and the positive solutions to and for our growth and abundance of being.
This was the best class of Michael’s I have ever experienced. I am so happy it was filmed to make into a dvd. I was especially moved by the exercise Michael facilitated with the one woman talking to her dad. I felt a huge release merely as an observer! The chaplain healing circle was amazing–so much there that I could relate to…
I write to THANK YOU for Joy’s great yoga classes. Especially this past Thursday when I feel I had a kind of breakthrough with a particular vertebrae in my middle back (heart!) that seemed to be stuck out-of-whack for years and years and years. Not completely healed but I sense it is “unstuck.” Unity of Sedona has become a beacon of Light and healing for me since I first attended. Blessings to you and yours, and to Unity.
Once in a while I have a series of days where I am really carried by an experience of gratitude and reverence. The past few days have been like that for me…I was listening to Michael speak during his recent workshop and I had a different sense of myself than I’ve had before…I saw how much “more” I am because of my relationships with a few teachers and specifically my relationship with Unity of Sedona and Michael. The emotion is one of gratitude, but reverence too. I feel like I should be saying much more here…but more words aren’t always better.

I would like to share my experience with attending the David Matthew Brown’s workshop that was presented last Sunday. He is alive with the presence of Love, Higher Love, one that encompasses all when engaged in his presence. His practical applications of breathwork to stay centered in the heart was on point. His use of abstract symbolism to engage the right brain is empowering. His use of life experience with self and others allows the group to make earth (grounded) approaches to see into gaps in ones own “story” and where perception has become the malady of one’s own deliberate separation from Love. We were partnered up to experience one to one direct soul engaging connections through the eyes and ears, reminding me that it is safe to see into the eyes of love again and to hear with an open heart, the sorrowful call of Love’s embracing Depths into elation resounding in expansive waves of soul Love in Unity as a whole, through the echoed mantra of simply, “I LOVE YOU.” For those who missed this workshop, I highly recommend that you catch it next time David comes to town. In the meantime, I am sure the wave of expansion is on its way through the collective vibratory field of Gods growing Seed of Love in Christ.

Many years ago I attended one of Michael’s presentations at Unity Church on Maui. He asked us to rate the areas of our life on a scale of 1-10, ten being fantastic. Relationship, health, career, finance, etc. After everyone did the work he asked if anyone had a score of three or less in any category. He went on to say that if one had a low score in relationship, without the proper amount of work and correct application of mind, chances were that in five years it would most likely be the same (or worse)…so one might as well stop suffering and complaining and get out now. I hated what he said. But Michael was right on. I didn’t leave my three or lower rated relationship for an additional six years, choosing instead to apply myself to my spiritual practice. I am very glad I did, however even with all the practice and work, my 27-year marriage didn’t work out. And the thing was…both Michael and myself saw it coming. So…points to take into consideration: TRUST your intuition however weak it may be. LOVE and forgive the one you’re with even though it’s painful. And practice developing confidence, love, and trust in yourself above all. In these ways all your hurts and anger will heal faster, you will have no regrets, and you will continue to grow in spirit and light for the rest of your days.
