“Like Jacob wrestling with the Angel, I have regularly been exasperated and challenged with integrating ACIM into my personal and professional life. At the Choose-again residential in Gainesville, Florida, in the safety, support, and guidance of Diederick, Claudette and other
group participants, I was gifted with an immense treasure — "I am not my stories (beliefs), I am love and only love." Being a witness to other participants being guided to challenge the beliefs that limited their happiness, allowed me to challenge my earliest judgmental stories (beliefs) of myself and return to recognizing my true identity as Love.
In short, all the elements of the Choose-again paradigm — the ACIM readings, yoga and mediation, natural milieu, healthy food, encouraged silence, directed encounters by Diederick and Claudette, friendship in community and The Grace of Spirit allowed me (us) to acquire skills in wrestling with ourselves when we are feeling "bad to the bone" and return to our truth as Love. My Heart continues to resonate with joy and gratitude. And I am thankful to everyone.

“The Choose Again Course in Gainesville a few weeks ago was a wonderful reminder of the truth I needed to lift my consciousness. My mind was swirling with the information for the first week, as I began to apply it in my every day life. I met so many wonderful people, all of us experiencing the same emotions throughout our lives. The foundation of energy for feeling safe to express ourselves was very lovingly set by Bob, Sandy, Diederick and Claudette. Daily, moment-by-moment, I am more aware that I catch myself if I feel upset, and begin the process. This week going direct to the truth… All that I am is God/Love is easier!
A Shaman I know well has told me, I walk in a brighter, clearer energy of light since I took the class. All of us, that is what we are - we are God, but we are not all that God is. Since God is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, that is the only thing we can be! I have known for many years all that I Am is God, I just never had a way to wake myself up to the thinking I was God before Choose Again! I can’t thank everyone enough! I feel my journey will be more wonderful than ever before!”
