Gail is one of the most insightful and honest people I have ever met. I first went to Gail because I needed tools to handle life versus sitting and talking about all the things that have gone wrong with my life. My life has been traumatic since I was born. I wanted find a way to break harmful patterns that influenced my choices and contributed to my life continuing to be traumatic. Gail heard me and gave me excellent tools to re-evaluate my belief systems which were holding me back from living more fully. She never once allowed me to wallow in my despair. As soon as she saw me begin to tailspin, she called me out on my pity party and helped me realize I am more than the sum of my experiences. I get to choose what I believe and what I create my life to be. It’s not good enough to simply have survived. I want to live! Gail recommended I attend her Women’s Wellness Seminar and guaranteed that I would have a breakthrough. I think I had multiple breakthroughs and I’m still having them. My mind was blown more than a few times and I discovered things about myself I had buried deeply or was unwilling to acknowledge, including my own power as an individual. During the Women’s Wellness Seminar I was able to connect with other women whose goals are like mine in that we all want more from life and we all want to maximize our potential. The biggest lessons I learned are the worst cage I lived in is the one I created for myself. I did this by adopting belief systems others give me and not realizing i have a choice to believe whatever i want and trust myself to know what is best for me. This can only be achieved if i TRULY love myself. We all make mistakes but we can learn from them and our mistakes don’t have to own us. I also learned the more I suppress what’s happening inside, the more damage I cause in my life. There were moments during the seminar I was faced with choices to feel things that were pretty horrifying or honor myself and feel what was there so I could finally heal myself. By burying the trauma inside me I was ignoring the most wounded part of myself that needed healing. It’s like walking past someone who is bleeding out or having a heart attack and ignoring them. I could never fathom doing that to someone else and yet I was doing it to myself daily. Gail helped me realize that, not in so many words, but this is how I interpret the lesson. I am much happier now. I feel lighter and there are fewer days where I feel helpless and hopeless. On those days I know what to do for myself to identify what is really going on and deal with it in a healthy way. The seminar was the beginning of my mind being more open and I am living and learning more than I ever have in my entire life.
Joe and Gail you two hold a place deep in my heart reserved for only the very best! Thank you both for your guidance and wisdom, love and honesty in the work we did together. I will never forget it as long as I live! May you both continue to be blessed and outlive us all. Love Ian G Fleming
I had attended Gail’s seminar “What Women Want” with my most precious, best friend, Judy. Boy was I glad I did! Gail is an amazing facilitator.
There were 40 women participants in the room, along with Gail and her support staff. The energy in the room was palatable and increased as the day went on. From the very beginning, Gail’s exercises were eye opening. She showed me just how connected the room full of women really were – all with similar wants and fears. The masks we so often wear were lifted, and our true selves came through. I cried openly with complete strangers, something I do not usually do. Lessons were taught and learned in ways that were profound. I felt truly connected with my fellow sisters in the room.
Gail’s expertise came through loud and clear, as we worked through the exercises. Gail, along with her wonderful support staff, made me feel supported, cared for, and safe. We all worked through the day to touch the truth of ourselves and those in the room. Gail asked and offered, but never pressured anyone to do anything they were not comfortable doing. I believe her style caused more women to come forward to own their truth.
As I said, I went with my dear friend Judy. Judy was ready for the next step in her journey, and she took everyone in the room with her. She stood in her resolve to shift old, negative self-talk. I sat there - mouth agape- as my amazing friend worked through Gail’s techniques. It seemed as if everyone in the room was standing with her in support. I feel truly blessed that I was there. The support and connection to everyone in the room was amazing.
I can’t wait till my next meeting with them.
I want to take a moment to thank you for touching my life along with many other men that attended the Men's Wellness Weekend a couple weeks ago. Being a part of something as powerful as this weekend was something that I could only have dreamed about in the past. The freedom and direction I found by attending our weekend was "just what the doctor ordered."
Many times in my life I have been a part of different types of groups that talked about making a difference in someone's life. Our weekend was by far one of the most powerful in my life. The friends that I met there and the growth I feel I was able to have been far beyond what I could ever expect. Feelings have always been something I liked to think I showed but really never could share with a group of complete strangers.
This Men's Wellness Weekend was so comfortable and real that I was able to overcome many fears and character flaws that I did not realize were holding me back. Your love and caring in the way you brought the best out of all of us was wonderful. Thank you just seems to be such a small word for what you do. Unfortunately, I do not have any other words so I hope you will accept my humble thanks. I know I have a special place in my heart for you and what you do and know I do not speak for just myself. Every one of the men that I have talked to since the weekend expressed the same feelings. We are looking forward to the next chance to go through another weekend with you.
If there is anything that I can do for you please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you Gail for showing me, "ME".
After working with you in our in-service training project it is easy for me to say that our work together was a success. Specifically, I have found that you have the uncanny knack to go where a conventional business mind doesn't go. Hence, you have been the perfect counterbalance to my normal "inside the box" thinking.
Thank you for all your help.
The benefits of your program has truly touched me personally as well. Since attending one of your weekend programs two years ago, I have made tremendous strides in achieving clear, open and honest communication. These benefits have reaped rewards far beyond the scope of business. It has enhanced my marriage, strengthened my parenting skills and improved the quality of my friendship.
Once again, thank you for all your help and I look forward to our working together in the future."
