This personal retreat was very different from any other workshop or retreat I’ve attended. With the entire focus on me I felt totally supported to go deeply into the work.
Casey offered a combination of real world techniques for difficult situations as well as insight into motivations that drive behavior. Julie offered a new way of working with dreams that reminded me to bring together my waking and sleeping worlds, my inner and outer worlds, to create my own life.
It’s now six months after the retreat and I can still tangibly feel the solid base it gave me from which to launch deeper explorations into who I am.
I immediately scheduled my retreat with Casey and Julie. I spent 5 wonderful, enlightening, calming and learning days in a perfect setting with two incredibly kind and generous people and a their fun daughter Mina. I felt protected, understood and most of all I didn't feel alone. Even though I know this will be a long process of discovery for both my husband and myself. I have been given tools to help me deal with each day as they come.
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.
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.
