"The Forgive & Be Free retreat was very helpful to me. Art of Living Retreat Center is a very conducive environment - a beautiful and peaceful landscape, with meals at community tables where we could share concerns and ideas. Above all, the sessions with Jennifer were so rich in how to apply forgiveness in our daily life. We all wanted to feel more peace and to understand how to attain such a goal. I was able to truly forgive myself, and let the past go. I was able to find previously undetected spots where I had judgments and was able to see it differently. I have such gratitude for this healing experience."

"I can't imagine where my life would be today if I hadn't pushed myself to take a chance on attending last year's Forgive & Be Free Retreat. I had spent three years reading and working through A Course in Miracles workbook and text, but I felt absolutely stuck between a rock and a hard place. I had no idea how to make a spiritual life worth living. I chose the Forgiveness Retreat out of desperation - I was nervous and not sure about the retreat, Jennifer’s teachings, or my ability to strike off on my own and travel to Boone, North Carolina to this mountain top retreat center. I look at this retreat experience as the beginning of finding a way to joy." 

~ Deana Desjardins


"The Forgive & Be Free retreat did me lots of good! The place itself is so beautiful and peaceful; the food was good and the most important part was the sharing! I learned a lot from Jennifer’s teaching, she explains things in such a practical and applicable way, with great examples. Listening to others' shares especially in the small group sessions helped me to feel safe about sharing myself. Others saw in me things I could not see for myself and that was encouraging!"

~ Carine Dorce


"Before the Forgive & Be Free retreat, I was at a place in my life where I was really insecure and struggling with letting go of my past mistakes and failed relationships. Most of all I was struggling with an extremely mean inner bully and one of the harshest critics on the face of this planet, myself. I gained so much insight from Jennifer and the others who attended your retreat. I discovered that this kind of struggle is very common in everyone. It was wonderful to be in an environment of love, compassion and support. I discovered how truly safe I am in this world. And wether it appears this way or not, everyone can experience this safety for themselves."

~ Jennifer Jamieson


"I cannot believe it will be a year in October that I joined Jennifer’s Forgive & Be Free Retreat. We met at The Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC. Magnificent setting, terrific facility and good food — all supportive of doing the deep work we agreed to do. Jennifer encourages each participant to levels of self-awareness that I had only read about. I began to understand Self-Love, for the first time in my life — and extend it to myself. That’s BIG! I left the retreat inspired by the loving and “on point” teachings of Jennifer, as well as the companionship of like-minded souls — all willing to choose Love."
