The “Sending the Right Message” two-day workshop was one of the most profound experiences I have ever had. I’ve spent years in educational training on communication and years in therapy. The two-day workshop superseded both of these experiences. It provided me with the practical tools I’ve been looking for personally and professionally. It also gave me the precious opportunity to acknowledge—and then let go—of pain that I had been carrying for years! I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone and everyone! I can’t wait to do it again!

Having known John for 15 years but never having attended an event prior to this one, I can attest this seminar alone (The Way to...) answered so many of my life’s questions! Not just with marriage but with ANY relationship and understanding of human behavior. John’s messages and music were such effective tools in delivering enlightenment to our souls and moving us to tears, and he does it in such a quiet, loving manner. Love his humor too! I know we just scraped the tip of the iceberg, and we are coming back for more.
