The simplicity of what Casey teaches eliminates the need for years of microscopic self-analysis. It merely bypasses it in favor of being still. I’m the author of a book that approaches self-improvement through modifying the subconscious motives behind behavior. However, Casey’s influence in my life has been like a still pool of water in which the root of my resurgent seeking was visible along with the ease of the path forward through nonresistance.
After 20 months working with Casey, I have accomplished so much, that I could never have imagined. During the mid-life crisis that I was living with my wife, I was desperate, full of fear, weak and alone. Little by little, though his life and relationship approach, he inspired me for a different way of looking at things. Now I can see the truth there within his sayings. Being patient, getting stronger, being kind to everyone around you, including yourself, has made the nightmare I lived, a unique, graceful experience, that has changed my life. I thank him from my heart and hope that this way of thinking may help other people too, to face the challenges of our lives.
Five years ago, I was sad, scared and worst of all, had lost myself. I was a new mother and my husband had asked for a separation. I wasn't sure how I was going to find my way through this situation, but I knew I wanted to do it with grace for myself and my son. Casey and Julie were there for me during my darkest hours. They helped me find my way when life felt out of control and change was all around me. They gave me the strength to not only get through the darkness, but also re-emerge a lighter and truer version of myself. I carry their teachings with me each and every day - knowing they are there should I ever need them gives me peace.
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.
Casey has been immensely helpful to me in a very confusing and painful time in my life. He has offered insight and suggestions that are totally outside of the realm of what friends or a therapist have been able to offer me. I credit my allowance of new paths opening up to me to the guidance I received from him. Reaching out to Casey was such a good decision for me.
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.
