Read a Special Review from Melanie and Wade Lake, who just celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary

Wade and Melanie.jpg

25th Anniversary Adventure. Days 1-3, Heber City, Utah.

Wade and I just had our 25th anniversary and we had an EPIC 14 day adventure celebration.

We spent the first 3 days of our anniversary adventure in Heber City, Utah at the Shades of Intimacy Relationship Retreat. We specifically choose to start our adventure here because of the connection we come away with each time we attend Shades. It did not disappoint. We dug deep into the roots of some unhealthy patterns in our relationship and began dismantling some habits that no longer serve. It was hard work but we stuck with it and were lovingly held by the incredible group. We did it and moved on to days 4-14 with the beautiful, deep heart connection we were hoping for when we planned our journey. I learned so much about my own value and worth, separate from my relationship. I learned about creating boundaries with heart and that I can choose in fully and that they can be offered with so much love as a gift. I got in touch more deeply with my inner knowing and inner guidance than I ever have. I experienced many blissful moments as I practiced moving from that inner guidance.

It was with much gratitude and full hearts that we took off and flew 8,000 miles away for the next 10 days of our adventure, just the two of us.

5 Stars - Zuzana – Life Changing

I was stuck in non-working and what felt like dead marriage. I felt like a victim and complained a lot. Working with Jennie helped me to first connect with my feminine, then learn to embody my feminine essence, discover my version of sensuality. I became more empowered, more authentic, more alive and more aware of my power and role in my marriage. Working with Jennie is raw, real and deep. I always felt 100% supported by her in this process.  I realized feeling like a victim was the trap. By stepping into my power I not only became happier and more alive woman but my husband got inspired to work on our relationship as well. My marriage got a second chance. I am excited for the journey we are undertaking.

In reflecting here at the airport about the event with you Jason: It was one of the most powerful weekends of my life. You and your team served me at the highest level and have changed my life and the life of my wife, daughter and son. You have exceeded all expectations. You embody the code. Thank you for everything you have given me...

I had been in the depths of despair, coming out of an abusive and toxic relationship with an alcoholic, and ultimately, myself. Working with Jennie and Jason I found my voice, my inner/personal power. They were guides into the deepest depths and helping me find and feel again into the beauty and magic of life. They helped me power up in ways that were completely unknown and helped me through some of my darkest and trying times. Their guidance was and still is my saving grace. Their knowledge they have shared is still guiding me through life in the most beautiful of ways.

I was looking for a new growth in my already wonderful relationship with my S.O. (significant other). We had already been dating for 2 years and it felt like we understood and complimented each other so well but knew we wanted more adventure, challenge and variety. Jason and Jennie helped us with specific techniques and daily assignments that felt like it brought new life, purpose and passion into our relationship.

5 STAR RATING - Susan - Goddess

I attended Shades of Intimacy workshop after my divorce. I wanted to get a feel for what else was possible in regards to the Masculine and Feminine dance in relationships. I wanted to "feel" the energy of different men, understand the HEALTHY masculine. I felt intimidated by men, I didn't feel safe and I couldn't understand why. Jason and Jennie's workshops are so different from anything else I've attended. It is difficult to explain or quantify results...the results are woven into my being and beyond words, but I'll try.... I adore people and playing with the masculine/feminine energy, I feel safe, I enjoy more intimacy and connection in relationships across the board, I am more present and comfortable in my body, I have gone from feeling relief at being single to Joy in my singleness and I have a sense of excitement to dance again with the masculine and I anticipate finding a playmate for the next half of this life (this is no small thing for me). Communication, boundaries, trusting my intuition, saying "yes" as well as saying "no" have all become easier and more potent. This is not your ordinary "talking" workshop experience, the physicality, play and experiential nature of Jason and Jennie's Shades Workshop has the potential to take you back to the time before your pain and help you rediscover the magic of you and the magic of connection.

I found Jennie when I was changing my life. I was taking a leap and pretty scared. I found a women, Jennie, and a group of women that I felt unconditional love from again. Jennie can support you in getting the results you want and see what is stopping you. When I leave working with her, I feel ready to be in my life more fully, more accepting for what is, and delighted to try new things.

 Laura – Opened My Heart Back Up

Me and my husband benefitted greatly and experienced things that will continue to bless us for years to come. When we started working with Jennie and Jason my husband and I were both nervous as we had no idea what to expect or what we were in for. From the minute we walked in the door we felt the love and friendship of Jason and Jennie.  It has been the most amazing experience I have ever had. On several occasions I was able to watch my husband participate in things that he had never done before, but being able to watch how much heart he was putting into this experience opened my heart back up. He was giving it his all to fix us.

5 STAR - Teri - Inquiry

I needed clarity deciding whether to stay in a relationship or break it off. When I said to Jennie, “I can’t trust him,“ she pointed out, “But you CAN trust him. His behavior is showing you all the ways you can trust him. You might not like it, but you can trust it.” Jennie and Jason offered me very practical guidance, They encouraged me to look within and ask myself difficult questions. If my partner never changed, would I be willing to live with that? Ironically, when I dropped the need for my partner to change and accepted him for who he was, the answer became clear. No. This might not seem like a happy ending, but it actually coalesced my ability to trust my experience and make decisions from a place of inner strength and wisdom.

5 Stars – Larry – Second Marriage

On our second marriage.. and we just did not want to fail again….  I admit, I didn’t have the tools I needed when I was young, but I also didn’t have the willingness. This time around… we are willing to do whatever it takes, and I think that made all the difference. With that mindset, the tools and guidance and practices Jennie and Jason guided us on were highly effective. I feel good about my marriage again for the first time in years.  To have someone who understands us like this is amazing.

Jason taught me the understanding of the balance of what true masculine and feminine energy is. Understanding this balance of the yin and yang has given me tremendous understanding and capacity in how I lead as a man, husband and father in my household and in my marriage.

 I was having problems connecting with my wife on an emotional level. I was closed off and afraid to move into difficult conversations with her. My work with Jason and attending a Shades of Intimacy workshop helped me understand the reasons I was hiding, and to develop tools for communication and connection that I continue to build on.

I went to work with Jason and Jennie at their relationship retreat event shades of intimacy to grow, deepen my self awareness to be the best I can be in my personal relationships. I came away from shades with a new view on what my triggers are and the tools to be the best woman I can be for myself and partner. What I learned has impacted my life in all areas of my life. The support and practices you come away with are life changing in all ares of your life.

I was having a hard time dealing with the trauma of my past and how it effects me now. I was able to sit with myself in a way I never thought of and was able to witness and be witnessed by open people willing to see me. I've opened my mind and found new ways to process, accept and love my struggles.

My husband and I have made our tumultuous and passionate relationship work fairly well over the last decade, but I could still feel some things between us that just weren't connecting, as well as some healing that we both could use. I realized that my excessive masculine energy drowned out a lot of my husband's, and his lack of heart centered feminine energy made me feel unsafe; it was a vicious cycle we were caught in.  The intentions that were set and the space that was created by Jason was unconditionally loving, not to mention a very safe space to work through some personal discomforts. The other attendees were respectful, supportive, and the entire event felt profoundly kindred. Learning about intimacy as a personal journey was very different than learning sensual massage, sexual positions, or communication techniques. The individual exercises created the personal accountability needed to show up intimately in ways that best support my husband and my marriage. I cleared a lot of stagnant energy, as well as learning some beautiful embodiment techniques from Jennie. We now have some awesome tools to use! My husband and I are playing with the energies we've learned, breaking old habits, and connecting in deeper ways thanks to Shades of Intimacy.

Life changing work for me.

5 Stars – Conner – Practical and Fun

I had found that I had some stunted growth as an adult due to some issues during my childhood. Generally found it difficult to break out of my bad habits I developed in those years.  Working with Jason I got a chance to run through some exercises with Jason specifically. Some of them were designed to identify the problems and habits I’d developed. After adding some more defined lines to the problems we helped identify when the habit was manifesting and how I could start to change things for the next time it comes around.  I saw a lot of improvement in the recognition part. I could tell when I was slipping into my dismissive and secluding habits. Even with just that it became much easier to stop it before it got the chance to start again.  I’ve continued to work with Jason and Jennie and attended 3 of their retreats. I can say that with each one they did a great job of expanding on their previous lessons while keeping things fresh for the new ones. While my problems are my own to deal with the biggest take away I’ve had from their work is how to be more aware of my issues and how to address them before I let them fester.

I was filled with self and never feeling good enough. After working with Jason I felt better about myself and have put up goals on what I am going to do in a day and it helped me see the real problem in my life and taught me ways to work on it to have it out of my life.

The problem was within me. Jason and Jennie helped me to reveal my inner struggles with intense love and compassion. The kind that is only found in those whom have the courage to delve into the depths of the unknown and the mystery that unfolds while held in their safe container. It opened my heart...to those in circle working thru their own process, sometimes struggling, sometimes laughing, you never know what arises! Learning tenderness and grace for myself and the journey I am on. Community of people willing to share their time and energy with me.

MATT - Modern Day Warrior

I came to the Modern Day Warrior workshop because my life is melting down around me. My wife left me recently, and I have been in a tailspin. I grabbed a hold of this workshop as a possible way to help arrest the plummet.
 
I was not sure what to expect. I was looking for comfort, solace, and peace. I was looking for anything that would help fill up the raw, gaping wound in the middle of my heart.  I was looking for tools, for help of any kind.
 
What the Modern Day Warrior gave to me: structure, tools, hope. It gave me companionship. It helped me to know how I can improve myself, and how to ease the pain of being abandoned and hung out to dry. I felt a huge outpouring of love and understanding from all of the brothers present. It was extremely powerful and uplifting. Though I am still extremely sad and regretful for what happened with my family, thinking back upon what I learned at the workshop, as well as practicing the principles taught, helps to ground me a little more, and get my mind away from depressing thoughts, even if only for a little while at a time.  I have hope now that I will get through this, though some days are still very, very hard.
 
I would highly recommend the Modern Day Warrior workshop to every man on the planet.  It is powerful, and it is desperately needed. It changes lives. It turns bad men into good men, and good men into better men. Over time, implementing the teachings with an open heart and determination, I believe the program has the potential to turn ALL men into their very best selves.  I will be attending another session in the future.

The couples weekend was a deeply moving and profoundly personal yet shared experience that I will never forget. I felt connection, energy, passion and safety. I took risks and made gains but felt safe and supported the entire weekend. Jenny and Jason are amazing guides and teachers and the subtle yet powerful presence of Suzanne Wagner made the weekend truly unforgettable. Both my husband and I benefited greatly and experienced things that will continue to bless us through our our relationship for years to come. I am grateful to have had this experience with my best friend and partner and feel fortunate to be among the group of couples that participated. I will absolutely attend future events both as a couple and an individual. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

My experiences with Jennie and Jason include Shades of Intimacy, Elemental Feminine workshop, and personal coaching. While I loved all 3 experiences, I found the personal coaching to be extremely helpful after having done the workshops. It allowed me one-on-one time with Jennie and Jason to focus on the specific areas in my relationship that needed attention. It gave me an opportunity to try out skills I had learned with my partner with the support and guidance of Jennie and Jason. Both my husband and I benefited from the coaching because we could enter into the deep patterns in our relationship and start to break the cycle of trauma we were creating for ourselves and each other in our very damaging interactions. For us it was extremely convenient to have Jason and Jennie come to our house and sit with us in our space. It was a very personal, very intimate environment and both my husband and I felt very safe. It allowed us to receive modifications to the tools we had been given in the workshops, which in turn helped us to find our target hotspots and work them out in ways best suited for us. I found that having attended the workshops prior to coaching put the tools we needed in our bag ahead of time. I didn't always see an immediate shift in the dynamics following the workshops. Because frankly, I still wasn't ready to change or my partner still wasn't ready to change. But because we had attended the workshops when we WERE ready to change we could go inside ourselves and access the tools we had been given immediately and the change came at the time at which we were ready. I cannot speak highly enough of this is dynamic power couple. Jason and Jennie...Ryan and I love you to the Moon and back. You have honestly changed our lives, saved our marriage and prevented years of continued trauma for us both. I highly recommend getting involved in at least one if not all of these experiences.

ASHER - Modern Day Warrior

I came to the Modern Day Warrior Workshop Fall of 2015 because I had heard so many positive reviews about the workshop so consistently. I heard about the authenticity of the teachers and the information covered and I wanted to find out for myself what was going on.  I expected it to be hard, and I was right but it was well worth my effort. I got the tools needed to begin living life at a higher level of masculine function. My eyes were opened to subtleties that I didn't know existed and I was pushed to find a depth I normally wouldn't often (if ever) approach.

You should expect to receive the tools, practices, and direction needed to operate at a more refined level, a place of depth and flow and higher capacity than ever before. You will have a huge leg up on MOST other people in the world. Why would you want to have fewer tools in your tool belt? Why blunder through existence just making do when you could be realizing your natural strength and power and claiming it for yourself? If you're serious about finding out what your true nature is, about learning what the hell is actually going on then attend one of these workshops. The teachings are truly priceless and what you do pay for this experience is returned many times over. I've attended multiple workshops and every single time the true value of it is felt and appreciated by each person who attended.

CHRISTOPHER SUNYATA - Sexual Intimacy Coach

Both Jason and Jennie have created an experience that can only be matched by traveling to either coast of the USA that would cost an order of magnitude more.  During the weekend workshop, they led men, women, and couples through a deep dive into creating and experiencing intimacy. I was amazed by how they created a place to explore the power of sexuality, polarity, and relationship - all while fully clothed and held safely in their care. I can see why Jason has the nickname of being "the chef of enlightenment". He teaches about intimacy and creating lasting passion in relationships, then invites each person to share their own challenges questions, and responds by guiding the whole group through practices that seem to bodily answer their questions and issues. Each day was a revelation to see how him and his wife Jennie would lead individuals and the whole group in practices that dissolved blocks to love and empowered them to create hot sexual attraction as an offering of art and deep personal expression. Jennie in particular has a gift of deeply feeling into each participant and helping guide them into expressing their heart's longing. Their work needs to be experienced and felt to be understood. Everyone who attended left opened and enthusiastic about deepening their intimacy and expressing love through their bodies. If your relationship needs a kickstart to return to depth and connection, or if you are single and want to attract and create passion and intimacy in your life, I highly recommend you attend one of their workshops. 

5 Stars – Linda – Try For Yourself

Working with Jennie and Jason me and my husband connected on such a deeper level, a level I never even knew was possible and for that I am forever grateful.

5 Stars – Manny – Remembering Who I  Am

I have reached new levels of love and understanding for who I am and who I am growing to be. When I started working with Jason I recognized so much he was teaching me, it’s like it was always there but he just helped me see it.

 5 Stars – Riley – Consciousness

I worked with Jason to learn what steps I needed to take to better myself as a man.  What did I gain?  Consciousness. Awareness of the power of breath. Awareness of presence (Being present in EVERY moment) and the immediate effect it has on your ability to control the direction you are heading in life. The ability to identify “masculine” emotions (rage) and use them as fuel. Confidence –I can walk into any meeting, meet any man, and face any challenge knowing that I have a leg-up on everybody there; I know something they don’t.

 5 Stars – Richard – More Intimacy, Deeper Intimacy

I’ll be honest, I went to Jason to learn how to get more sex from my wife. I also had performance issues.  But I got so much more than I bargained for.  Struggling with Porn and disinterest in life, (I drank a lot too), I realized I was sedating on everything, and it really wasn’t my wife who was at fault. In fact, she was a saint to put up with me all these years.  It has taken a lot of work, but by focusing on waking up, I’m not only reconnected with my wife, but I’ve reconnected with my LIFE.

The women's embodiment session was filled with open arms, vulnerability,  love, broken down walls- exactly what I deserved to experience! I met many wonderful souls who mirrored me and gave me what I was looking for: to rid myself of those walls we build as women. I felt a huge amazing break through on the last day, (which I was ready to move on from,) and each woman was there to catch and support me.  What a wonderful weekend to dig deep, work hard, and take out the trash, so to speak, and let the light in. My experience is when I make time for me, my inner Goddess is fully charged, and my relationships change for the greater. I become a better self, mother, and friend.

My husband had given up on our marriage, but I didn’t.  I read every marriage book I could get my hands on. I was willing to do anything, but it wasn’t until started working with Jennie that I was able to save my marriage.  I don’t want to lie to you, if you think it’s about your spouse, you’ll quickly find out it’s really about you and what you can do in your life.  I’m not saying it was all my fault, but things didn’t get better till I started working on myself.

I knew there was more to life, but felt trapped by financial goals and self expectations and utterly lost in what I was supposed to be doing in my life. Working with Jason has been a push and pull thing, as I don’t like to do the work, but he has a way of guiding me that is both open and loving and yet has a relentless determination. It was the only thing that has worked for me, and I’ve been searching for years.

5 Stars – Beth – Hope in My Marriage

When I decided to change, my wife did not come along with me.  Jason encouraged me to do the work anyway, and though it took some time, I dug my way out of my pit and my wife has really started to respond to my growth.  For the first time in a long time, I have hope in my marriage.

5 Stars – Julian – Porn

I thought porn was the problem, but it turned out to be ME. My inner addiction to sedation and misunderstanding of energy.  I was using it to escape, and blaming my wife for not giving me what I wanted, but it had nothing to do with her.  This took a while to see, and I felt defensive a lot, but what I ended up with was a sense of freedom, no blame, shame was eliminated, and guilt was let go.  I can’t say enough about this, as I have been carrying this burden for a long long time.

5 Stars – Shay – Hated the Thought of Marriage Counseling

I was really reluctant to try marriage counseling, but it’s made all the difference in the world.  I’m one of those who really resisted the process, but then it started to work, and I was like, what the hell am I fighting this for?  I don’t know why I fought it so long.  But I’m glad I finally decided to take it seriously. It’s paid off a thousand fold.

We got ahead of the curve on this one. Me and my husband started to drift and stopped that with a few short sessions with Jason and Jennie.

Great pricing, I was so worried it was going to kill our wallet, but the sessions are deep, packed with information and exercises and practices that provided weekly progress we could see. And we didn’t work with them forever, it only took a couple months and we literally fixed the problem of communication we had.

I waited to write this testimonial for a little bit because I experienced such profound change in the last Shades of Intimacy workshop and I wanted to see if it was here to stay or just a fabulous workshop high.  Good news - it has been 8 weeks since the workshop and the transformations I experienced have integrated beautifully into my new world.  In this workshop I completed something that I feel like I have been working on daily for the last 400 years - my perspective on the world has dramatically changed and I have found a freedom and connection that I have been seeking for as long as I can remember.  It makes my heart sing each day.  It is delightful to discover what each new day now has to offer me and each day feels like a new exploration because I am not working on the same old stuff wondering if it will ever end.  It has ended and been replaced with so much happiness. It is incredible to process decades or lifetimes worth of pain, stress and grief in a period of only 3 days.  It feels like I am finally catching up.  I am living more blissfully each day and able to access the many joyful experiences that I've had in my life because of the healing that has happened.

The connection my husband and I have experienced as a result of Shades of Intimacy is deep, profound and beautiful. We have found many keys that have unlocked much happiness and opened many channels of communication for us here. The real life aspect of this workshop has been very useful; Jason, Jennie and Suzanne teach powerful tools that create massive transformation and connection in relationship.  If you are seeking answers, I imagine that you'll find them here.

My husband and I have attended 2 Shades workshops, I have attended 3 Elemental Feminine workshops and he has attended 2 Modern Day Warriors.  It is impressive that every workshop I attend is even more remarkable than the last.  I have literally driven across countries to be sure I am here for them because they are that transformative for me.  

I like the thought suggested at Elemental Feminine “What if karma is simply unembodied emotion?”  I have found this to be a valuable belief in my life that has led to much healing and space in my body through embodiment experiences.  The most profound experience of this I can think of is when we did a process in Elemental Feminine where we embodied shame, then abandonment, then betrayal.  It was painful to feel all of those emotions inside of me. In fact, we lovingly named this exercise the Circle of Pain.  It was painful but worth it because that was a year and a half ago and I still feel the benefits in my body to this day. I didn't know how much of my energy those emotions were consuming until I felt the space that was created in my body in that exercise.  Shame, betrayal and abandonment have been replaced in my body with joy, freedom and bliss.  I want you to experience this with me!

One of my delights has been to share these workshops with my adult children – my daughter and two of my sons have attended the women's and men's workshop.  They love them.  It brings much satisfaction and joy to me to know that my children have access to powerful tools to help them navigate relationships right at the beginning of their venture into the adult world.

These workshops refreshingly aren't about personal growth – they are far beyond that.  They are about living open-hearted to offer pure love to the world in any form that it is needed.   This takes courage and bravery and the rewards are delicious.  We learn tools, skills and processes to take home and continue this work of loving more fully.

I feel like the last Shades we attended was a significant shift in my life.  It gave us the tools that we needed to bring our relationship to a level where we could move beyond just us – it feels as if the focus of my life has shifted from all about me, survival mode, to being largely about how to gift others, what truly serves others.  This is much more of a consistent possibility than it has ever been before.

I appreciate the metaphor in these workshops that we are each like a piece of glass and life has cracked us in many places.  Some of those fractures need therapy to be healed because they truly incapacitate us. At some point we recognize we'll never heal all the breaks so these workshops allow us to move forward with our life, they are not about therapy but about making art as we allow the light to shine through our broken glass, through our fractured paradigm and gift the world just as we are. It is such a relief to be able to live fully now and make beauty through the cracks and give them as a gift.  That process of surrender and love has actually healed many of the breaks.  Some of the fractures I now appreciate and honor and are here to stay, by conscious choice, and that is a deep healing at at different level.

These courses are my favorite place to grow; they resonate with me and are an invaluable part of my journey.   Jason, Jennie, and Suzanne hold the intention of pure love and have created a solid container of safety, love and trust and nothing less is permitted there.  To that intention and container of safety they add their incredible skills and knowledge, and magic is made.

The friendships I have made with other women in these workshops are deep and real because they are forged in that tight container of safety, love and trust.  It is amazing to be fully seen and heard and be safe. I have learned a lot about creating that container of safety in my home with those I love. When I experience shame, sorrow or heartache in my life these women in these workshops are the women that I can bring that to and find support to feel it then move through it.  It is comforting to know that if life brings tragedy or sorrow I have a venue to heal it.  

And as if that tight circle of women was not phenomenal enough, in the Shades workshop it gets even better.  Added to the tight circle of women is a circle of solid men behind us protecting, loving and honoring us like I have never before experienced.  It is incredible to feel in my body that I can protect myself and then let that need to protect melt like butter because it is so unnecessary in the safety of those men.  That has changed me and knowing that there are honorable men that surround me has created a relaxation in my body that is profound.  Even though I have not seen any of them outside of my husband since the workshop I feel that energetic protection of good men daily.  I've always felt like the luckiest woman alive to have one amazing man protect me. It is a gift. To be protected by an army of good, solid, honorable warriors is indescribable.  I want every woman I cherish to experience this. It will cause something in you to relax and allow you to move through life with a new found peace.

It has been delightful to rediscover, enjoy and celebrate the feminine in myself and just as delightful to honor and enjoy the masculine in my husband.  It is a blissful relief to let go of  the rules created by others and simply be who we are.  The rewards of  embracing my feminine and he his masculine don't stop at the happiness of being authentically ourselves but we have relished the polarity in our relationship and the attraction to one another that it creates.  Life just keeps getting better and better.

I want all my loved ones to experience this. Come play, step into this magical place of transformation and love!

Jason's commitment to the exploration of the unseen forces of nature is undeniable.  His knowledge of traditional and non-traditional paths of spiritual development runs deep, and his ability to share this knowledge with others is beyond inspiring. His embrace of the dark side gives him the ability to connect with others on the full spectrum of life experience. There are no waters he is unwilling to charter for the sake of spiritual growth.

FOUR STARS

4 Stars – Erica – Scary and Intense

If you have a little voice in your head saying, “ooooh, therapy sounds scary as hell and intense and I’m not ready” let me translate your soul’s voice for you.  GO!!!

 4 Stars – Brenda – I felt safe

Words cannot truly describe the setting and safety Jason and Jennie create.

4 Stars – Elizabeth – Safety

Reignited our lost connection, energy, passion and especially safety. I felt safe and supported the entire time.

4 Stars – Doug - Hunger

Working with Jason and Jennie aroused a hunger in me to know and understand myself in much greater depth.

4 Stars – Ramie – Letting Go

I was able to let go of so many negative emotions and move to a healthier path.

THREE STARS

 3 Stars – BJ – I really tried to like this work, but ultimately could not

The premise of the work with Jennie and Jason resonated with me, activating polarity and embracing my masculine and feminine sides, both. But it just didn’t come together for me. Maybe I didn’t try hard enough, but some of the exercises were out of my comfort zone. I tried, but ultimately failed to do the work.

3 – Montel – Claim Seems Egotistical

I do think it’s helpful to become more aware of yourself, but I don’t think it’s as useful as Jason and Jennie teach. In fact, it feels egotistical to focus so much on my self awareness.

3 Stars – Uma - Interest Reignited

We were tired, isolated and alone.  Five kids, two jobs, and we just didn’t have time for each other.  Jason and Jennie taught and implemented strategies that gave us each alone time, and together time, so that we were recharged and our interest in each other was reignited.

3 Stars – Kent - Structures, tools, hope.

Structures, tools, hope.

3 – Stars – Brian – Moderately Spiritual

I enjoyed recreating polarity with my wife, but I didn’t like that so much of it seemed to lean toward what Jason called DEPTH, but I called shadow spirituality.  It worked, but I’ve left spirituality behind. If you can set heart and depth and gifting aside, this is great work.

TWO STARS

2 Stars – Jim – Struggle with Death

I struggled working with Jason.  Part of the work was to visit my mortality so I could live more presently today, but that was work I was just not willing to do.

2 Stars – Emily – Therapy Is Not For Me

I don’t know, they were nice, but I don’t think Therapy works for me.

ONE STAR 

1 Star – Leah – Outdated Belief in the Feminine

I didn’t like Jason and Jennie’s definition of the Feminine, and felt it didn’t serve to use that term at all, nor the term masculine.  We are moving to a new world, where those terms are no longer serving.
