I spent the first part of my life striving for my "ideal self". After coming to The Haven, I began to explore more of my authentic self, especially my creativity. The biggest benefit for me has been acceptance of myself.
"I am amazed to think it has only been a week since we packed our bags and went our separate paths. My path is not the same as it was before The Haven. I feel more open, responsive, and intuitive because of the gifts I received there. I am better understood and am able to respond to my partner and others with such clarity. As a result I am feeling all my relationships are smoother functioning. Just the ability to ask for clarification before responding is huge … Thank you all for doing what you do at The Haven as mentors and mirrors of what life can and should be. I feel I can fly farther and higher than I have ever gone before. There was no judgment of who or what I was or was not. Just a willingness to give me the tools to go forward more open and complete."
"To communicate more effectively. To be able to accept my emotions and move on with them. To just feel better about myself and be more confident, much less anxious, and comfortable and relaxed around others. Openness and honesty. So much more, I just can't describe it all. The experience was incredible. Thanks for everything. Come Alive was incredible. It seemed like everything just clicked together. The most amazing experience of my life. I plan to come back."
"I will never forget my experience in Come Alive. I can't describe what it has given me. It is not something you can describe by saying it was worth the money, etc. I was enabled to give myself back to myself. You can't put a value on that."
"The greatness of human contact and connection."
"I thought the program was phenomenal."
"That people are strong, but also need support from others during their lifetime. Love for each other helps the healing process."
"I have the endurance and strength to endure"
"I now take ten to twenty minutes to breathe each day. I have learnt to take a time out for myself to unwind everyday…. I LOVE everything I learnt in the program and am trying to implement into my life everyday. I cannot stress what a wonderful program you offer. I have never done anything like this in my life and the Come Alive program is truly one of the BEST things I have ever done in my life. Thank You."
"How could we improve the program?
"To realize that what lies ahead for me is truly my own choosing, but that the facilitators at the Haven gave me the tools necessary to make this happen. I did truly 'Come Alive' again and now enjoy waking up each day and know that ' I am going to be okay'. …and I have awesome goals that I set before leaving the program, and I WILL be back for more, and others have seen the twinkle back in my eyes, and when they want to know how, I tell them about the Haven, and how everyone can and should 'Come Alive' Thanks for the music and the dance, as now I can breathe, and feel I can soar, and my feet are on a better path. "
"I have known about The Haven for about 13 years (my husband's first visit there) and I have encountered many people who have been there or who have heard about it. I have NEVER heard a negative comment in all these years. You must be doing something just right.
"The grounds are so beautiful, relaxing, I'm grateful to be able to connect with nature while going through such intense work. The bodyworkers are so gifted, so amazing, so mind-blowing, I could see myself coming back and just being treated by them and giving those experiences time to settle in the body, mind and spirit. "
