Livestreamed Healing Circles for Empaths and Sensitives

Healing Circles for Empaths and Sensitives

When trying to stay grounded during intense current events like COVID-19 and the protests against racism, it’s really easy to get caught up in the bigger picture and forget about self-care and the need to process our feelings.

The grief from what is happening can be so overwhelming that we can shut down our emotional awareness leading to lethargy and what some call, “depression.” The quite understandable anger and bouts with fear can wreak havoc on our inner environment, leaving us less able to affect positive change on the external environment.

When our inner awareness is reduced, our energy flow is also constricted. Our innate healing capacity is lessened, our immune system is weakened and our intuition is negatively affected. We may feel blocked or lost or even hopeless.

We can also forget that our bodies are feeling energy and emotions that we’re not even aware of. And as empaths and sensitives, we can easily be overwhelmed with the unprocessed emotions of those close to us (physically and/or spiritually). We can also become walking “sponges” for those who are suffering who are hundreds or thousands of miles away.

It’s normal to want to isolate and crawl into a corner, or sleep late, or self-medicate. But these efforts are distractions away from what is most beneficial.

In times like these, we need each other more than ever. I find this sadly ironic as many of us have been forced or have chosen to self-isolate!

Certainly we can make the best possible use of our time when alone, but as we all know, aligned group consciousness makes everything easier.

Presenting, the pay-what-you-can Live Streamed Healing Circles for Empaths and Sensitives!

Common topics are Healthy Protection for Empaths & Sensitives, Not Healing as Quickly as You’d Like to Be..., Healing Grief, Meeting Shadow, Healing Anxiousness, Life’s Mission, Healing Absorbed Energy, Healing Abandonment, Forgiveness, and Healing Fear. These events have already helped uncountable numbers of empaths and sensitives to better manage their energy and to remain strong and connected when the rest of the world seems to be falling apart.

Accessible by phone or online worldwide.

“A heart felt thank you for the meditation today. I definitely feel the collective grief, loss and fear/anxiety. I'm much more conscious of what I pick up. I often find it difficult to hear my own inner voice or I should say, it is there and I often defer to my left brain. Today was different as I waited, leaving behind my left-brain thoughts. I was directed to focus on my digestive system and in the quiet I

Healing Fear
Healing Fear

A little bit of fear is a good thing. Fear can help us stay safe; however, continued fear weakens the immune system. It can lead to what is called, “anxiety” and other emotional and physical pains or illness. Fear can’t be reasoned with. If it could, we’d have talked ourselves out of it already. Learn how to work with and heal your fear in a way that is in alignment with your essence, rather than how everyone else tells you that you should be dealing with it!

Healing Absorbed Energy
Healing Absorbed Energy

Do you feel like a walking sponge? Do you take on others’ energy and get drained, feel sick, or even diagnosed with something that was never yours to carry? IMHO, The Universe wants us to learn even more than it wants us to heal. And, learning leads to wholeness, which leads to deeper healing. Without learning what the illness is trying to show us and working with that root level, eventually, a re-occurrence is practically guaranteed. “Return to Sender” in the manner Dave channeled it, has been a gift beyond compare for thousands of empaths and sensitives who have been struggling with temporary fixes at best. Get relief in a group environment for far less money than a private session! Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Meeting Shadow
Meeting Shadow

Our shadow self is often ignored, even though it is a vital part of all of us! Unfortunately, even when acknowledged it is highly misunderstood and therefore feared. If you’re ready for a more in-depth understanding about the parts of us we were taught were bad, such as our anger, fear, and grief, we’ll be taking gentle and effective steps for witnessing and integrating our shadow for deeper inner peace and contentment—no matter what is happening both within and external to the self. What we own, can’t own us, and in the safety of a group container we’ll be better equipped to work with the parts of us that most don’t want to recognize, much less integrate. Anyone capable of observing our current condition can clearly see that it’s not “all just love and light” as we’ve been taught, or even hoped to be true. We’ll work with the shadow in alignment with the empath’s gifts—more heart-centered than from a place of more anger and fear. Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Healing Grief
Healing Grief

We’re all dealing with grief in the ways that were modeled by family and culture. Some repress. Some deny. Some distract. And most of us have dealt with our share of “depression” or fatigue or other ailments as a result of not honoring grief for the healing gift that it truly is. What if there is a better way to heal our broken hearts? There is! Discover how to befriend your own heart’s innate ability to process grief that will open your heart to expansion and joy! Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Finding Calm in the Storm
Finding Calm in the Storm

Can you recall a time so fraught with this level of anxiousness and fear? Any memories of cringing as much as we do now when turning on the news? Do you read your social media feed and become consistently and progressively more enraged?

What we experience is far vaster than what we see and hear. In addition to the overload of the physical senses, we “ingest” energy, thoughts, and emotions of others all of the time—irrelevant to physical proximity! And you wonder why you’re not feeling well?

What if what you’re feeling isn’t even yours? We’re all connected, and therefore can feel what others feel—from those close to us and those far away, and even from the collective unconscious. But that doesn’t mean you need be a walking sponge for other people’s beliefs, anxiousness and fear. There are proven techniques for finding calm within the chaos, and specific tools that can be implemented at any time to maintain a state of equilibrium.

At Finding Calm in the Storm, you’ll learn how to prevent energetic and emotional overload. Through experiential learning, you’ll get a taste of what it feels like to be free of the negative energy of others, and tools to help continue feeling healthy and vibrant!

Healing Anxiousness
Healing Anxiousness

When we’re feeling out of control, or fearing the future, or when deep feelings are being stirred, the mind typically looks to comprehend what is happening within its current ability to understand the feeling. But logic can’t understand or relate to emotion. The mind will then attempt to distract us from what is happening or shut down whatever is causing the discomfort. That includes judging other person(s) or event(s) that we perceive to be the cause—putting the blame on them. It also includes judging ourselves for experiencing feelings we were taught to be shameful of. And all of this adds up to what some people call, “anxiety.” Learn a more empowered understanding of anxiousness and how to better manage it within the framework of what we can actually do, rather than wasting time and energy on uncontrollable external circumstance. Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Not Healing as Quickly as You’d Like to Be?
Not Healing as Quickly as You’d Like to Be?

You’ve been doing all the “right” things, but still… nothing’s working! While some may have you believe it’s because you don’t love yourself enough, and others will tell you that you’re just not disciplined enough, or you’re telling yourself these things, maybe something is missing that you hadn’t yet thought of. Maybe your expectations are bigger than what’s possible? Maybe the tools you’ve been using aren’t in alignment with your true essence. There are many possibilities. We’ll cover some of the possibilities and also some of the answers. You’ll receive doable, time-tested action steps to help heal whatever blocks may be causing your pain or illness. Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Forgiveness Beyond Mind
Forgiveness

What does it mean to truly forgive? How can we forgive even the most egregious of trespasses? Why should we? The new definition of forgiveness is a more embodied experience. Beyond just the mental awareness, deep forgiveness involves the emotional body. Join us for a more expanded version of an age-old idea that’s been long overdue for an upgrade! Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Healing Abandonment
Healing Abandonment

Learn a healthier way of understanding our initial wounding—our perceived separation from Source—that when left unhealed leaves us “looking for love in all the wrong places.” When we try to fill our emotional voids with distraction, material pursuits, or intimate relationships, we’re actually reinforcing the feelings of separation. We actually attract others who will may leave us or who never can meet us emotionally, or we attract those who can stay with us and meet us but we can’t take it in, all of this only adds to the emotional misery. By healing the initial wound, everything changes. Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Life’s Mission / How Can I Help?
Life’s Mission / How Can I Help?

If you’re wondering, “What can I do” or “How can I serve?” or “How can I be?” given current events and your individual and collective health, you just may get some insights and healing at this event! It is better to open and allow your life’s mission to be revealed than to constantly be pursuing what others have told you, or what you’ve believed based on your conditioning. As a group, we’ll open to that information and see what Source has lined up for us. Discussion is followed by silent meditation / energy healing for the deepest possible integration of the information and healing work.

Open Circle for Empaths & Sensitives
Open Circle for Empaths & Sensitives

What would happen if we gathered on Zoom without any agenda? What if we did a brief meditation to allow a deeper inquiry to arise, and then voiced it in a safe container? What if you could ask Dave for a reading, or had a specific question and were able to get an intuited answer on-the-spot? What if you could be seen, heard, and unconditionally accepted by other empaths who can relate to what you’re going through? You’re about to find out!

NOTE: To assure confidentiality, this event will NOT be recorded!

“I am in gratitude to you and all of like mind who are working to assist each other during these times. Being a part of this group offers a safe space to come together for support and sharing.  We are never alone in spirit as we are all connected.  Having this type of connection is very important as we hold each other with patience, understanding and compassion - with a large dose of unconditional love.”
– Anna J., McMinnville, OR

Healing Circle Testimonials

“As we got into the meditation, I felt an energy force. It seemed to be pushing me back slightly. I was able to feel the tension in my upper shoulders to middle of my back relax. I felt the tension being released. Like there were fingers within each part that needed releasing. I went with it, knowing this was a good thing. I also experienced my body sort of swaying, front to back. It was much easier to control my thoughts which is hard for me to do sometimes. I just let them fly by me. I was even able to block out the outside noise. That’s a first. After the meditation, I felt this

“I am so thankful to Dave for offering these wonderful Healing Circles!  During this time of isolation due to the COVID outbreak, he has provided a lifeline and much needed service and made it available to all with the Pay What You Can option!  I have found his guidance and the group collective experience to be so helpful in my meditation during the sessions.  Feelings of grief, pain and abandonment around past experiences are coming up that I didn’t even realize I had buried within me which is giving me the opportunity to begin healing with the unconditional love of Source.

“The framework flowed rather quickly during your session, seemingly in response to a question I put forward, and I ended up making a lot of notes during the stillness.  More details were supplied over the next day or two.  I figured I was finished working in this way, but the current level of chaos called me back in.  Your session offer landed at just the right time and helped me figure out what that would be.  I am making myself available to try and support others who want to support self and others.”

“Thank you for offering this series. I have been putting out a lot of energy lately to serve others, offering a conversation series online. It is really nice to come to your space on Thursdays this month and experience your lovely holding of space. I do enjoy hearing what you have to say, and the quiet Source meditation time is a great gift. I just wanted you to know I am truly grateful.”
– Andrea Winn, Heroic Leadership Coach, Halifax, NS Canada
“Thank you so much for today’s call. It was awesome! First time I’m joining. Despite having an active 5 months old puppy jumping around next to me I felt sooo much peace. Thank you so much. Feeling immense JOY right now.”
– Michelle, energy healer from Melbourne, Australia
It amazes me that even when listening to the recording of the Removing Entities Healing Circle, I instantly was transported into a field of light. I saw my ‘entity’ in the left corner of my mind. It looked a little like a black scribble mark or black dust bunny line drawing. I let the little guy know that I was open to the message he had. What I heard was that ‘it is okay to let go of the past; it is okay to bathe in the light.’ I experienced...

“I made the intention that my contribution to this class is that I would share your website and insights with everyone who is doing healing/energy work on other people because I believe the techniques you have developed to clear energy are the best out there. As I did so, my daughter called me, ‘Do you have a resource for clearing out all the energy I pick up during my healing sessions, mums?’ So I referred her. As did the Universe. Gratitude.”

JoAnn Kohl
“The healing continued even after yesterday's healing circle. I woke up in the middle of the night to an inner eye vision. I saw you at my right side, at 2 or 3 o'clock, composed of crystal clear conscious light particles. Then a ball of white light descended upon me, followed by a column/waterfall of light and energy that rippled through me. A few minutes later, I felt a great sense of calm, stillness, peace, and centeredness in my heart. Also, when I woke up this morning, my cat Habanero (whom I put in the healing circle) power snuggled with me for the first time in many months! I

“So glad to have been in the group today. For me, a stunning shift as I realized the difference in being in my mind/ego and my heart/love. Profound!!! … Love does not fail. I cannot love with my mind. My mind/ego is at war with my heart. It's like having a foot on either side of a divide that just gets wider and wider until I am torn in two. There is no divide when I am in my heart space when I am in Love and Source. Whew...thank you for doing what you do. I am grateful to be able to be with everyone.”

“The Tele-Healing Circle was amazing! I had never met or heard of you before, but I always know that I'm where I'm supposed to be. At first it was hard to relax, and I didn't have any music ready to put on, so I just laid back on my bed and was open to receive. The energy came through strong and tangible. I literally felt like my head was being morphed into a new shape. There was strong energy going into my third eye, and the session ended with an overall feeling of peace and tranquility. I was speechless (in a very positive way). Your work is amazing, and I look forward to

“Thanks so much…and boy did, I need it.  Clearly when Source told you about the money situation, it was meant for me…So as of today, it's all about me being deserving of it, and using it as a tool and not something bad. I literally felt something lift off my body, around my gut before we got started....and thank you for the acknowledgement about asking, something pretty big for me. I also…am considering doing a session with you again to just make sure that I tweak what else might be going on.”

“Hi Dave, I really enjoyed being part of the first virtual healing circle last night. It was fun to have people on the call from all over the world, and I think it helped to create a very expansive energy. That was a good exercise too– -very illuminating! Thanks for making this happen!”
– Susan Lander, Medium, NYC
Janet Cristenfeld
“After experiencing several of your healing circles in person, I was pleased to find that it was equally as powerful over the phone. During the tele-healing circle, it came to me that a sadness I was feeling was actually bottled up love, and since then, the sadness has dissipated. So thank you, Dave, for the opportunity and help in opening that up”
Janet Cristenfeld, NYC, Artist and Intuitive Energy Healer

Dear Dave,
Thank you for the circle! It was very blissful to splash around in all that positive energy. AND, a beautiful "coincidence” occurred soon after our call.

My intention had been to open myself to more love–a loving partnership, and any expansion into love on my path in Clown. After we hung up, I was blissfully folding my laundry when it came to me...

FAQs

    Info About the Livestream Healing Circles

  1. FAQ: I’ve already got Zoom / Video Conference fatigue! Do I need to be at my computer watching Dave or anyone else?

    ANSWER: Not at all! You can just listen. Video is optional.

  2. FAQ: What can I expect to receive from one of these events?

    ANSWER: Feel free to have a specific intention going in, or just trust the process. Source knows what you need and how much your body can handle. Most feel lighter, more connected, more vibrant and heart-centered during the event and afterward!

  3. FAQ: What typically happens at these events?

    ANSWER: While each event is its own experience, typically Dave will discuss the main topic for a while, then we’ll experience integrative energy work, and then there is time for Q&A, and shares.

  4. FAQ: How are these Healing Circles different from others?

    ANSWER: While it’s difficult to say specifically how it compares to what you’ve already done, one of the more common differences that has been noted is that Dave’s explanation of the topic increases your understanding of how the topic relates to life as an empath or sensitive, thereby increasing your empowerment to prevent the symptoms from reoccurring. Healing without wisdom is typically temporary because the Universe wants you to learn, not just heal. And, ironically, learning leads to healing.

    Another common difference is that during the integration work, there is no music. Sound therapy has its place for sure, just not here. Source has shared that it’s easier to get into the muck when there is less distraction. And sometimes, a short dip into the muck is needed for healing to occur.

  5. FAQ: Is there a recommended posture?

    ANSWER: Similar to mediation, do whatever’s comfortable for you that also minimizes the chance of falling asleep—unless that’s your goal!

  6. Logistics

  7. FAQ: Why haven’t I received the call-in info yet?

    ANSWER: The call-in info is designed to be sent to you automatically, and comes from [hidden email] Please check your s.p.a.m, junk, or trash files for anything from that email address, add that address to your approved senders list, and if you don’t see anything, write here.

Highly valuable; I learned what I’m taking on that’s not mine…

“I found the group sessions highly valuable because I learned how sensitive I am and what I’m taking on that’s not mine. This was made evident in the group setting and shares, which I gained a great deal from. Dave is a skilled facilitator and intuitive. I appreciated being called out on my “non-availability” to men so I could work on opening my heart. I had been doing work with another practitioner and that never came up, so I seriously appreciated the “tough” love! ;-)”

An enlightening journey towards thriving in a challenging world…

“Dave skillfully and eloquently takes the group on a down to earth, enlightening journey towards thriving in the challenging world as a Highly Sensitive Person and empath. His keen intuition and heart-felt compassion open the door for all of us to enter the beautiful world that awaits.”
– Lisa Smole, BS, MBA, Certified Medical Support Clinical Hypnotherapist (CMS-CHt), Fellow of the International Board of Hypnotherapy (FIBH)

Moved to tears...

I am moved to tears right now as I realize how helpful it was to have this group to connect with every Tuesday. It was a beautiful thing to watch how holding space in a safe environment without judgement enabled everyone to work deeper—that is pretty amazing when I realize that we began as total strangers! I have heard the term ‘holding space’ for many years, but never totally understood the concept until I experienced it on these calls!

Able to move into my heart space more often…

Denise Taylor
“After taking Dave's class, I have a much better understanding of and appreciation for my sensitivities. I also feel much stronger and more confident in my ability to handle situations that in the past would have exhausted or overwhelmed me. Most importantly, I am able to move into my heart space more often and come from that sacred center when I am with others. Dave's ability to hold sacred space for us in  the group was so healing … and I am starting to have more energy, slowly but surely. Thank you, Dave!”

Loved getting to know the other group members… felt heard… and received support.

Stefanie Frank
“I'm always wary of group programs - and I had a bit of trepidation about whether I would "fit in" or whether the group would be too melancholy, overly sensitive, or some other unflattering descriptive word. Turns out my concerns were unfounded. Our group was supportive and Dave did a great job steering the conversations and keeping them productive. The best part for me was the connection formed with the group as a whole. I also loved getting to know the other group members and feeling heard when I shared and received support. I'd recommend this group to those who are highly sensitive, have big goals, and need an objective and supportive space to talk through what's holding or threatening to hold them back so they can make sure they are progressing forward in the way they intend to (or better).”
Stefanie Frank, Persuasive Writer | TEDx speaker | Trainer

Dave knows the right words to say at the right time to open your heart…

Healed the sadness & anger I've been holding onto for years…

Jessie Fresh
“Dave's weekend workshop helped me see how powerful it is to have community support for healing. By being given the presence, awareness, guidance, and love from Dave & the group, I was able to have raw vulnerability & release shame. I was able to further heal the sadness & anger I've been holding onto for years. I was so impressed with Dave's ability to intuitively know how to guide us to healing, even when we weren't sure of what we needed ourselves.”
– Jessie Fresh, Intimacy Coach, Portland Oregon

Extraordinary healing & transformation… released decades of emotions I was not even aware of…

When I registered for Dave’s 10-week workshop, I had no idea how life changing that decision would be.  Each week we witnessed extraordinary healing & transformation, by releasing energy that was not ours.  I released decades of emotions I was not even aware I was holding onto.  These past 10 weeks I’ve met wonderful & courageous people.  We are all moving forward with inner strength, knowledge, & understanding of how to truly live as Empaths.

“I recently attended a four session workshop with Dave Markowitz and I must say, it was life changing. Empaths and highly sensitive people are often ‘walking sponges,’ and Dave showed us a way to navigate through life by befriending and releasing blockages to create better health, and improved relationships. I must say that along with his deep knowledge on the topic, his wry sense of humor was an added bonus. I would sign up again for any workshop or lecture he is offering.”

“I had been suffering from chronic migraines for over 15 years. I knew that I was an empath, and decided to give Dave’s class a try. I was not disappointed. After processing deep seated emotional pain, I have not had another migraine. Dave is easy to understand, and his style is not ego driven. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and went to his class!”

“I am currently taking my third course with Dave. I find our group work so incredibly valuable for many reasons. First, it has helped me to better understand myself as an empath and has validated a lot of my life experiences. Second, it has given me tools, such as the keyhole exercise, to use in situations where I might be taking on other people's stuff. Lastly, and probably most importantly, the classes and work have given me the opportunity to experience my own vulnerability in the

We were each given the opportunity to explore our thoughts and feelings that typically lie below the surface. In this ‘safe container’ environment, those who were willing to dive a bit deeper into the vulnerable places within were given gentle guidance and support. The transformative results were, at times, utterly stunning. Energy movement is not

“Working with Dave made a tangible difference in my quality of life and my ability to handle everything coming my way. Being a highly sensitive person has many benefits, but I couldn't see them under what felt like the burden of of the overwhelm that came with it. Now that I have tools and techniques, I feel better, less fatigued, more engaged, and I'm remembering the Joy of it all.”

“Dave is a gentle, insightful, wise facilitator of the process which allows us to keep the energies that are ours to love and heal, and to return to others that which is theirs. I had several profound breakthroughs during the four-week class, and continue to do the work daily. I left his workshop feeling uplifted, and with simple tools to continue my healing and enlightenment. I referred many of my clients to him, and instituted his process at home with my partner. This experience has

“My experience during the weekend workshop with Dave is one that I will remember as transformative. He gave us the understanding and tools to use to live as more connected, thoughtful, and empowered individuals. Whether you identify as an Empath or highly sensitive person, this workshop will engage you on every level, challenging you to find your personal power and create a beautiful state within yourself to go out and share who you are with the world. I greatly appreciate the time Dave

“I had been suffering from chronic migraines for over 15 years. I knew that I was an empath, and decided to give Dave’s class a try. I was not disappointed. After processing deep seated emotional pain, I have not had another migraine. Dave is easy to understand, and his style is not ego driven. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and went to his class!”

The Fast Track Healing Program (3-Month Program)

HKS
“Fast Track with Dave Markowitz took my healing to the next level. From about two weeks into the program I began noticing subtle shifts in my life and work—more money coming in, feeling less fear, ability to stand in my power, etc. By the end of the program, I had an offer from my dream client, my healing circle was wildly successful and powerful, I completed my novel, I had more

“Fast Track Healing is rather miraculous. There is no guessing when the healing is ‘happening’ as the energy is strong and powerful. Although it may change some from session to session, it is amazing in its intensity. I had sessions where my body was clearly being healed and things were shifting. I was approached about an additional job from a surprising source after the

“Fast Track has far exceeded my expectations; I feel more comfortable in my body and my sense of appreciation for life has returned after a long absence. My usual fears have receded and my hope and simple enjoyment of just 'being' have returned. I keep smiling for no reason. I strongly recommend Dave's work. His generosity of spirit and keeping this wonderful healing affordable is second

“Dave's Fast Track Healing Program is beautifully orchestrated, wonderful and of quite high vibration. It has supported me in my heart opening and growth and I can truly say that I have a new view on humanity and all life. I am more in awe, more in love, and frequently amazed when I look at humans, and all creatures and the way they love each other. I am being enchanted and it is

“Among other things I really felt great Love towards my brother during the Fast Track sessions with Dave, re-experiencing many memories from my childhood. I feel that lately my brother (unknowingly) responded to this Energy of Love. Our communication became much warmer and more open. We are more tuned to each other. Thank you so much for this Experience and much

“I have times where I feel desperate, frustrated and lonely but since I started the FTHP I suddenly have bursts of happiness and hope. A calmness that I can not explain where it comes from. A sense of security within that makes me feel stronger even though I still fear for the unknown. My husband is asking me if I can share this experience with him, he also wants a piece of my smile. I

“During the very first session, I had an insight that hadn't occurred to me during years of therapy. Just for that it's been well worth the money. My father died when I was 7 years old after a long illness (tuberculosis). This was in the 1950s. And I was discouraged from talking about it by my family due to that cause of death. This caused me to carry a great burden for many years that

“I loved each session and it was such a good meditation experience. I felt tingling all the time and often got chills; I know I was taking in energy and at times I had a good cry. I and others have noticed a change in me and a shift in energy. My biggest lessons in this experience were to silence the critic in me and to love myself more, which are huge. I will also share with you that

“The fast track program has certainly been that. During mediations I have experience intense energy moving through my body.  And on various occasions I have ‘seen’ light patterns and visions. But in my daily life, the healing and moving energy has continued. Things have shifted in many aspects of my life. It's been an amazing experience.”

Relationship Satsang - Awakening the Intimate Heart (2-Month Program)

“Being a part of the Living Guidance group has been transformational for me. I've been amazed at how safe and supported I feel by this group. From the very first meeting, you could sense a vitally strong, loving spiritual energy and power that lifted all of us. The level of trust and support has allowed me to reach places of vulnerability and awakening that are spurring a spiritual

How to Communicate with Source

“I witnessed some amazing synchronicities and healing energy moving about the room. When the floor opened to participants to “go deep,” the fact that the first person to stand up and talk about her holocaust-surviving mother supported another woman who was (now) able to explain this M.O. from her experience could not have been coincidental. They learned from each other and we

“Hi Dave, this is Joanna from San Diego. I want to give you the conclusion of the 'sore arm' that we worked with. I continued to have some residual pain for the next couple of days. It was about 50% better. I gave some more attention to wondering why it only hurt when I was using the hand to exert some force, like a door knob, sink faucet, picking things up. I contemplated the aspect of

“Dave presents a unique perspective on healing that is energizing and empowering–positively life transforming. He creates a safe and supportive environment with lots of experiential exercises, group discussion, and playful humor. We ended with a group-healing ceremony that was very powerful. He offered each of us a chance to bask in warm and loving energy from the group.”
