I recently came back from a Personal Tao retreat with both Casey & Julie. I attended the retreat with my husband. The experience was invaluable and we will hold the teachings with us forever. This personal retreat came at a time in my life where I needed it most. Casey & Julie are wonderful listeners, provide teachings catered to a person's specific needs (including chronic physical pain) while gently remaining in tune with the emotional needs of the participant. I found not only has the retreat helped strengthen us as a couple, it also strengthened me as an individual. The Personal Tao retreat has allowed me to explore my spirituality and allow for great personal growth. I would recommend a retreat with Casey & Julie to anyone who needs guidance when at a fork in the road, for person(s) looking to expand their spirituality, or guidance at any point in life.
Casey and Julie are without question the kindest people I know. And, as if that weren’t enough, they’re also excellent teachers.
Because what they offer is a PERSONAL Tao, the way Casey and Julie work with you might be completely different than my experience. But if you are fortunate enough to work with either or both of them, rest assured that you will get what you need. Both of them bring humor, wisdom, and a keen perception, balanced with patience and grace to help move you through the storm.
I miss them and the Island already.
Julie is a thoughtful and creative teacher who employs a variety of techniques to help her clients get "unstuck" in their personal and professional paths. She has an amazing capacity to help people find, discover and unlock their true potential in a caring and non-threatening way. She is a joy to work with and will help anyone find meaning and inspiration in whatever they are seeking.
I was utterly lost when I first started working with Casey. Personally and professionally. In working with him, I've been able to take what has been a real crisis and turn it into a fundamental transformation.
If any of you have the opportunity to do a retreat with Casey and Julie, DO IT! They are gracious hosts, fantastic teachers, and good friends. It was very special to be able to ease into the next phase of my life in Hilo. And the scenery is pretty good too.
Julie is an amazing teacher, delivering expert knowledge with kindness, creativity and a deep listening for her student's lives and dreams. Julie provides a judgement free space generating trust and empathy. I can highly recommend her as a spiritual teacher and guide.
As a psychologist and coach, practicing for the past 25+ years, I am accustomed to being there for others. Those who I will turn to when feeling weak myself are few and far between. Casey breathes what he teaches... and I liked his breathing. Through our first conversation, I came to realize that what felt like a crisis is truly a gift ... a transformation, a new opening.
It is easy for me to get pulled into the whirlwind of the material world and I so appreciate having him and Julie as a "secure base" that continually reminds me of what is truly important.
