Joy’n the Journey Testimonial

Question 1 : What attracted you to commit to this workshop?

The name of the workshop. The words “joy” and “journey” jumped out at me.

Question2: What were the reasons for joining?

  • Firstly, the goals and objectives were in alignment with the goals and objectives I had for my life.
  • Secondly, eleven years ago I had a very painful experience in my life. A year after that, I received a letter from Lydia whom I had never met before. . This marked the beginning of my healing process. After reading the letter, I intuitively knew that Lydia was meant to be one of my teachers in this life.
  • Thirdly, I felt that I needed to connect with new people in my life.

Question 3: What did you like most about it?

  • The fellowship and sharing amongst the group
  • The meditations.
  • I got over the cards phobia. I collect cards now!
  • Our coaches were very effective listeners. Everyone in the group became effective listeners. Everyone’s story was important. At times. When I spoke, I felt so connected yet I felt that I was the only person in the room because everyone listened wholeheartedly and what I had to say. The moment belonged to me.
  • We laughed a lot

Question 4: What difference has it made in your life?

  • Growth and clarity. I now live my life with attention and very little worry… I am working towards “without worry
  • I use my time in a more worthwhile way.
  • I keep my thoughts pure and positive as much as I can, and filled with strength.
  • I have a strong desire to get to a higher level of learning and consciousness.
  • I can easily let go of things and see the difference between the “experience” and the “person who I am”

Question 5: What improvements would you like to see in the future?

Nothing really. Once we start at the point of acceptance in our life…improvements are bound to happen. The workshop must be conducted based on the group dynamics. Of course you must have guidelines to follow, but its the group that makes the workshop effective or not.

Question 6: What would you like to see included?

Nothing. We never seemed to run out of things to share or talk about. Keep the spontaneity going!

Question 7: How would you like to continue the journey?

  • Level 2 – maybe flower groups – Guidelines to start these groups within our own circle of friends.
  • The empowerment must come from the participants themselves. We must now bring about the change we want to see. The need and strength must come from within.

Question 9: What additional support would you have liked to receive from the facilitators?

I received just the amount of support I needed. My facilitators (friends) were effective listeners who celebrated the smallest details of my life and the biggest event. They were available and not intrusive in any way. This works for me.

Tiny Miracles

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

This was such a moving story that came to me in my email, I had to find space to put it up in my articles, as we too had a black Labby called Suede who had to be put down last Christmas. It was an agonizing and painful experience for the entire family. He had cancer and it was too painful to watch his health deteriorate while he suffered, so we had the vet come home where he was comfortable and surrounded by all his loved ones. We had him for eight loving, joyous and fun filled years.

Being a labrador he loved to swim, so he swam regularly in our pool and did laps with my husband every time he went to do his exercise. Whenever my husband tried to get away from him and would go under water, he would swim circles above his head to mark the spot where he was until my husband would run out of breath. If any of the children were playing rough in the pool, he would jump in and put his mouth gently on their arms and drag them out of the pool, that became a game for the children when they were younger. We miss him dearly.

“There is still compassion on this Earth . . read this very moving story . . . tiny miracles take place everyday , if we just take the time to notice.
