"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
Choose Again circles and periods of silent meditation at El Cielo awakened my self-knowledge and gave me hope - I returned home knowing that peace is in every moment. I use the elegantly simple and powerful Choose Again Six-Step process every day.
In September of 2017 my wife and I went to the workshop at Les Labadous to explore the question of purpose. My experiences in the circles led by Freddy, Stacy, and Diederik were honest, loving, and profound. My week-long focus of awareness on Choose Again nourished my practice. As an aside, the accommodations were comfortable, our hosts were charming, and the landscape was beautiful."
