"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.The retreat site was beautiful, calming, and nourishing to my spirit. Jennifer was a delight to meet in person, and we were challenged as participants to do the deep work of forgiving ourselves and others, and to work compassionately with others in the group to support them as they questioned, accepted, cried over the revelations of this type of work. Amazingly, there was plenty of fun and laughter as well, which surprised me for a forgiveness retreat. The characters I met at this retreat, some of whom I still know, left a big impression. I knew after attending this retreat that I would follow this path out of pain and into joy as far as I could possibly take it. It isn’t always easy work, but I finally know that I am free and I’m completely supported on my journey.”

“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. Jennifer, I gained so much insight from you 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 whether it appears this way or not, everyone can experience this safety for themselves. At the retreat I was to able to talk about my deepest most painful burdens that I have been carrying with me for so many years. In that place of safety, created by you and everyone in attendance, I was able to 

forgive myself and bring about the peace and love that I so greatly deserve. I also realized that the forgiveness I give to myself and others, benefits every being on this planet. Just as the forgiveness that others give to themselves, releases me. This very profound insight came to me as a very deep knowing that I felt and still feel in my body. This knowing has changed my life. If it wasn't for attending the retreat and participating with the the group, I doubt that I would have ever discovered this. The Art of Living Retreat Center is a very beautiful and healing place. I felt very nurtured and supported, not only by the beautiful group of people attending the retreat, but also by the wonderful staff. I loved my simple retreat style room. It was mentally good for me to put myself in a very simple setting. It allowed me to focus on loving myself and letting go of what no longer served me. I loved the delicious and extremely nourishing meals that were provided. I'm so grateful for you Jennifer. You have helped me in so many ways. You are one of the beautiful angels and masters here on this planet, helping bring about the change this world so desperately cries out for. With all my love and gratitude!”
