"I went to El Cielo in 2014 when I was fifty-eight years old. I had been receiving talk therapy for PTSD and Asperger Syndrome, which provided a measure of symptomatic relief, but I wanted more: I wanted my self-relationship to be healed. I spoke with Diederik on the phone to ask whether Choose Again might be appropriate for me. I look back on that conversation with bemusement because I know now that Choose Again is an appropriate course of learning for anyone (irrespective of the name he gives his unhappiness.) The daily
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:
“It was a true revelation because I came with no preconceived ideas. I learned to be at peace with myself and my loved ones. I learnt to forgive and not judge everyone through my pre-conceived ideas. Live and let live!”
“A non-judgmental and intimate workshop that will provide you with an alternative approach to dealing with upsets in your life/events that are not in your control in a most profound way. An essential learning experience for each person; young, old, families etc. No matter what you believe about yourself and your past, this workshop will leave you feeling closer to our purpose here on earth. Diederik is a master of his craft and leads by example. These concepts can be applied immediately or not at all, but the truth lies in your willingness. Shift happens!”
