I want to share with you what I consider great news. Since the second of the two workshops I attended at Les Labadous in August and September of 2016, I have come to realize that I too more and more naturally look for the light, it wasn't always so. With light I also mean love, a means to -- and outcome of -- forgiveness.
I am therefore pleased to report that I'm doing better. Last August, at the end of the first workshop, I told Stacy about the possibility of me starting on medication for depression as I felt stuck in a survival mode and didn't see a way out.
The transformation I have experienced this past year since attending the two workshops feels real in a sense:
“The 6 days workshop “Finding Meaning in Life” I followed in Les Labadous has made a great turn in my life. I’ve learned how to recognize disturbing feelings and hooked-on beliefs – and more important how to process this, to turn the upsetting feelings into a peaceful feeling. The techniques Choose Again offers are very profound and do-able, a healing process. I am so very very grateful to have experienced this week, a start of a continuing experience for the rest of my life, to feel peaceful, to be Love, and to be whole.” - Patricia
“Diederik said: ‘You are not here to make friends, you’re here to become friends with yourself!’. Diederik is confrontational, you cannot escape him. The work is huge. Everything that happens to me, I created for myself! That is just what I don’t want to hear. So I keep resisting. I am resisting to hear and accept the ultimate truth about me: that I am Love. And as long as I don’t see the love in any other human being, I will not see it in myself. That is the meaning of oneness. 6 intensive days of hard working on new beliefs, and undoing old beliefs. And in the meantime: good healthy food, beautiful weather, tremendous walks and meeting new friends. It was my best holiday ever.”
“The Six Step Process has changed and improved my life profoundly and radically, it’s a wonderful tool that helps me every day since I discovered it 3 years ago. Diederik taught me to handle my triggers of devastating rage and anger which had ‘killed’ all my relationships before, privately and professionally. Through all this my life has changed toward a more and more peaceful and enjoyable life which never even seemed possible before.”
"I am a professional therapist. I lived in the Eastern countries for a number of years and I am somewhat versed with the concepts of self awareness and the practice of yoga and meditation. Yet, while being in El Cielo (the Residential Centre in Costa Rica) I found a whole new dimension of being and living that enriched my life." - DY
"The impact of Choose Again has been huge in my life. I have been involved with Choose Again for ten years, and can honestly say life is getting better for me all the time!" - DH
"Choose Again has been a great benefit for our family. Diederik Wolsak’s patient and steady counsel through quotes like “be gentle with yourself” have provided me with a guide on my journey to ‘get over myself’. Association with Choose Again and its counsellors have helped me in my personal life and my job." - D H
