Overall, I'm a pretty skeptical person and did not expect significant benefits from a Women's Retreat that I took with Gail. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience Gail brought to the room, her facilitation skills and, most of all, her intuitiveness and compassion for the women in the group. Under her guidance, I was able to dig deep and recognize things that were blocking my progress in becoming the person that I want to be. Once uncovered, I was able to "change the script," so to speak, and have better control over my feelings and my reactions. I look forward to participating in the couples retreat, which I know is in the planning stages. I have no doubt it will be a worthwhile experience. I recommend Gail without reservation.
I have taken two completely transformative seminars with Gail! The first, a one- day event for women was so powerful, it resonated with me for days, weeks, and months afterward. I was going through an incredibly difficult health challenge at the time; I was afraid of the future and the decisions I was facing, but Gail gave me the tools to empower myself, to discover my strength and manifest for myself the future I hoped to have. I left that day emboldened to deal with the struggles I faced. After recuperating from major surgery to treat my cancer, I returned to a weekend retreat with Gail and a group of incredible women all seeking to find their best selves. By the time we completed our two days together, I had healed some deep-seeded hurts in my personal life and found ways to move forward in areas that had previously left me feeling "stuck."
Gail is a gifted facilitator who shifts her offerings to suit the needs of the PEOPLE in the room rather than a canned agenda she follows for every group. She provides pathways of support in and amongst the participants so that precious relationships can develop--people on similar journeys of discovery who support each other in doing so.
I cannot recommend Gail highly enough!
I have had the pleasure of meeting Gail and attending some of her seminars. She is an inspiration and has helped me and my husband to strength our marriage. I have had the pleasure of introducing my nephew to her after a tragic accident and the death of his fiancé. Gail helped him to adjust to his life without his fiancé and to learn to adjust his new way of living his life without sight. I would recommend Gail and her seminars to everyone, Even if it is just to enhance the life you have. Thank you Gail for everything

I first met Gail in 1986 shortly after Joe her husband and Joe's brother came over to Westerly RI and inspected a duplex complex I was in the midst of building and developing. I can distinctly remember Joe opening and closing solid oak kitchen cabinet doors at the completion of his inspection and then he turned to me and said "Your valuations are all wrong!" Now anyone who has known Joe for any length of time will understand that Joe does not know how to be anything other than totally honest. Now at that time I had already been a State Cop discharged on full pension on medical grounds and before that at age 20 became the first and as far I know the only ever Licensed Registered Builder by the Victorian State Government to be granted a home builders license! Of course I knew it all! Of course I was offended! Of course I made a judgement! In fact I made many judgments! Joe knew this because anyone who gets to know Joe will know he is very discerning! Without reaction he recommended I attend one of his wife, Gail's seminars. I did so a few weeks later and found Joe there all weekend assisting Gail on his time off. One of the most important lessons for me was to learn to trust people. As a former State cop often working undercover assignments to trust will lead to certain death. This is why it was just so hard for me to trust anyone. For many years I would not sit down unless my back was against a wall and I could view all entry and exit points of any room I was in. As for judgments and what I learned there in Gail's seminars and workshops it was just so contrary to my police training and everything I was taught but I finally did get it. It was in the autumn of 1993 after surviving a severe storm at sea driving my boat from Alaska back to Washington state. Trust? If I ever had to learn to trust in order to live then it was definitely that night! If I had not trusted all the crew the boat would never have kept running. If I did not trust in the light from the Lighthouse I never would have gotten the boat around the Cape. If I did not trust the Compass exactly the same fate. Finally when all appeared lost I simply let go and let God and placed my trust in my Higher Power. Because in the end that is all we can ever do. it was Gail assisted by husband Joe who put me on this path. I now know for a fact that if we do not trust each other it can mean our survival literally. The ability to be totally honest, to not judge, to show kindness in the face of hostility, to express Gratitude for each and every day of life and to Trust are just some of the regimen of my daily life which I practice almost religiously for I know for a fact what happens to me whenever I do not. Gail you have my undying and eternal gratitude love and respect.
Gail Petrowsky is the real deal. She is gifted and a natural healer-she can't help herself! She is honest and sincerely so deeply cares for those she works with. I have had a life time working with specialists such as Gail with little to no help. Gail does not assume to be the Guru but rather points the pivotal power to the individual. She is savant NLP practitioner and applies other healing practices that provides renewed perspectives. She is relentless...when you are truly ready and serious about making changes-Gail could help facilitate your dreams. Knowing herl has lead me to increased self-love and self-acceptance (I have suffered my entire life from self-loathing); increased mental health via affirmations and a context for affirmations that WORK; increased peace of mind, positivity; and, a connection to like minded people for support. She has helped ME change my life in ways I couldn't imagine-because I wanted it. When your ready to learn - the teacher appears...
