Testimonials / Comments from Former Participants

The Spiritual Leaders program was one of the best things I have ever done. The depth with which we explored the course content, especially the verbatims & discernment processes, helped to deepen & affirm my own spiritual practices and hone my ability as a group facilitator of holistic meditation programs. The supervisors were quite awesome in their “soul mining” skills & abilities, and while at times very challenging, hauled up many treasures. This led, quite unexpectedly, to a deep personal healing along the way, which gave me a greater level of trust and confidence in myself, in God, and in the unfolding of life & love. It was a great honour to share this journey with spiritual companions who have been inspiring, courageous, accepting, compassionate and encouraging. A truly life changing experience for which I am deeply grateful.” – Marilyn VIC


The experience that I acquired from the Spiritual Leaders course has had a much more effect in my life and much more value than I can express in a sentence or two, or a full page. It is however to me a lifelong experience, which starts at the beginning of the course and never comes to an end, as it becomes part of my life. God bless you and keep up the good work.” – Gabby VIC


The driver for me to engage in the Spiritual Leaders program at Heart of Life was that it would be helpful in my work, and would add two more units to my undergraduate degree in theology. But in the end these were not at all the reasons I was glad I participated! There was nothing wholly new or completely unexpected in how we together explored the way our ‘spiritual motivations’ – if I can put it that way – play out in our lives, and yet by the end of the year something quite radical had changed for me and in me. And some very deep bonds were formed with the wonderful others in this fabulous group.” – Richard VIC
