“I find myself using the exercises and techniques that I learned in my everyday life. When I have a difficult situation or am stressed I remember to breathe and I try to balance myself and feel grounded so that I can go on. I learned how important breathing is and how to visualize energy going from each chakra to the next while at the same time feeling if it is balanced or not. By doing this, I have learned to be at center with myself.

Elsbeth and Freddy Zental helped me to find ways to deal with problems that I have with certain people. Some exercises taught how to confront emotions that were stored inside and gave ways to deal with them. We learned that while we could not change the past, we could rewrite the story. By doing this and then acting out the new story we got to see and feel how we can shift our feelings about the past as well as in the present. We learned that we can choose our feelings — which one to go with or not.

I, for one, am very glad that I was asked to be a part of this program. The experience was amazing and I hope to carry what I have learned on with me for the rest of my life.”
