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.

Wen Shwu Lee - [read more]

"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."

DE Come Alive November 2012

"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."

Mathew Babey, June 2012

"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."

Alexis Rampaul, June 2012

"The greatness of human contact and connection."

Taylor Lefebre, May 2012

"I thought the program was phenomenal."

Tracy Hallam, May 2012

"That people are strong, but also need support from others during their lifetime. Love for each other helps the healing process."

Edie Harrison, April 2012

"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."
