„Ich bin verängstigt und verzweifelt angekommen, befreit und erleichtert nach Hause gegangen. Ich fühlte mich bestens aufgehoben, behütet und getragen.”
„Kein Psychologe hat das geschafft, was ich mit eurer Hilfe aufdecken durfte. In Dankbarkeit und Frieden “
It is very simple really: I have a pre Journey life and a post Journey life. The Journey has helped me improve my health and well being beyond recognition. It is the core to everything for me. I have learnt that unless I am connected to my Source, nothing outside of me will ever feel right. If I had only known when I was growing up that all emotions were not only a healthy response to life but also gateways to a profound inner peace, I know I would have experienced my life very differently. I use the Journey tools every day and the deep peace they bring continue to seep into and suffuse everything that I do’.
My youngest son (8yrs) was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2005 and is undergoing treatment while doing ‘The Journey’. I have been overwhelmed at the change in my son/s attitude, towards the huge life changing illness. He is now able to find tools and strategies within himself to help him cope/deal with his treatment and tumour. Before he started the journey he was often feeling sick, had headaches and dizzy spells with chemo, then when starting the journey we noticed a significant improvement in his physical symptoms, and now after a series of journey sessions theses symptoms have subsided substantially. All we are seeing at the moment are the side effects straight after chemo.
On seeing the amazing difference this has had on our youngest son we chose to introduce ‘The Journey’ to our oldest son (11 yrs). He was finding it difficult to deal with his brother’s illness and the change in the family, that he developed separation anxieties.
After just one session of ‘The Journey’ he had to go on a school camp, this was a big ask for him. He knew he really wanted to go, but the anxiety was much bigger. With only having had one session at the time he felt confident on taking himself on his own journey. We experienced this and were touched at how he was able to process all his thoughts and feelings and give himself the tools and courage to achieve camp.
The confidence and self esteem that we have seen in him is encouraging to see. We know that now he will be able to deal with any anxieties he may have in the future.
The boys continue to do ‘The Journey’ and enjoy each session. I have asked each boy how they feel after a ‘Journey’ with their answers being relaxed, tired, courage, happy, safe and fun. This gentle process of healing has given them everlasting tools that they can use all the time and also giving my husband and myself peace of mind.
My name is Joe Doyle. I served six years in the United States Marine Corps, and I am a Viet Nam Veteran. The after effects of that war held me captive in a shell of my own creation for forty years. Four years ago, my wife, Nancy, lead me to The Journey, and both of us have completed the Practitioner Program. As I travelled along The Journey’s path, I became aware that much of Viet Nam’s trauma, along with many other issues, were being healed, and that I had opened into a freedom within myself that completely changed my entire life. From that change, a dream has arisen, to bring The Journey, and its beautiful healing processes to veterans and their families.
This experience was amazing and cleansing. I have seen the positive effects through my father… and how he changed. The peace within my soul resonates through the cells and overwhelms me. All I have is thankfulness and gratitude in my body, so thank you and I thank myself and I thank grace.
Thank you so much for having me be a part of the Journey Intensive. I am not sure of How or What I received, and truthfully I finally felt that my Spirit was at place to finally be receptive to the Love that eminates from the Universe. Regardless, I felt my Soul was truly touched in a “Positive” manner for the first time in 40 years by someone from outside my family. The only other times I can think of is when my children were born.
As I said to you, I am not sure that I found SOURCE or Release. I do know that I was so Honored to have been with others and experienced their release. That in and of itself was so wonderful. I could actually “Feel” them which gave me such Gratification.
I would also like to expand my love and gratitude to all the Trainers. Their sincerity and Love was abundant, and filled the room with Peace and Joy. I wish I could have done more for them all, and maybe next time.
Which brings me to the other reason I am writing this message. I was looking on the website for the different workshops and also the items I might need to be a Practitioner. I saw the one on abundance but I did not see a price. I am not going to let anything be a block to something I feel is needed for my Spirit. The Journey came about and the perfect time and even though I am pretty uptight about allowing things to move me, I HAVE BEEN MOVED!
I have always wanted to help people just for the sake of helping. I am feeling strongly that I want to become a Practitoner. It makes me feel that my life has some meaning and gives me positive things to reflect on when the darkness comes. I believe that this Process may actually be a way for me to see the light that has been hidden.
Again, my abundant gratitude to all of the Trainers, the Staff for the Love and Joy all of ya’ll so openly gave to me (us) as we Begin Our Journey.
I wanted to share a story with you that happened to me. I was leaving Denver to go home to Jacksonville, and I woke up in a funk. I had really weird dreams all night, and hadn’t slept well. I was feeling very tired and kind of out of it. I left the hotel and on the way to the airport and I started feeling anxious, and by the time I got to the airport I was in a full blown panic attack. One of the beautiful things that I have learned through the Journey Process is that anxiety and panic are my coping mechanisms for not feeling, (bizarre as that sounds.) So, I knew that there was something I was not feeling.
As, I started through the Security gates, and I was so panicked, I thought, I need to get to a calmer place. So I went into the bathroom chose a stall in the back, started down the layers, and was just really sobbing, I did however get to a semi-peaceful state, enough so that I could get through security. After all, I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss my flight. As I got through security, I still had this gnawing in my stomach, so, when I got to my gate, having plenty of time now, I said. “Ok, there is more, here I go into the bathroom again.” So I found a stall in the back, hung my coat and purse on the back of the stainless steel door and sat on the toilet in my clothes. I went down 2 layers, and a memory popped. So, I thought with limited time, I will just build my campfire right here, and process. Turns out I was mad at God. I was able to empty out, and we had a nice conversation, forgave each other, and I really felt the shift this time. So when I opened my eyes I looked up to get my coat, and to the right of my coat, someone had scraped GOD in the stainless door. I sat there with my mouth open staring. Then I looked further and there were three crosses below it. And shaking my head, I went, “Oh my god!!!!!”, then I just burst into laughter. Who knows was it there before?, probably, maybe not, I don’t know. But how synchronistic if it was there before, out of ALL the bathrooms in the airport, and that was the 2nd time I went into to process, I would pick that bathroom, and that stall. YES, we are truly NEVER alone. Thank you for this work.
I wanted to send a “FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART” thank you to ALL the people at the Journey, for helping me attend this event. Twenty-five years of Medical\Psychiatric therapy along with anti-depressant medication could not un-earth as much as this intensive workshop did in two days. I’m not saying that I am completely cured and totally healed. I can say, in complete and utter truth, that I have never felt such a deep sense of accomplishment and hope. What a feeling!!!!!!!! With your help, I feel as though I’m on my way. Back to my healing path. TRUTH. Thank GOD and YOU for showing me the way. MERCI. THANK YOU.
I had lived with no awareness of life inside of me. I stuffed my emotions often not knowing what I was feeling. There was lots of anxiety and depression and little self-esteem or confidence. I spent much time reading self-help books to understand and analyze it – yet there was little change that occurred for me and it kept me attached to the same old “story” that continued to run my life.
Then after experiencing a major loss I became very depressed and felt that there was no longer anything meaningful in my life. At the same time I was also facing the emotional pain I was holding onto around my relationship with my mother. I did not want to see her or even think about her for a year and a half! I got in touch with a part of me that knew there must be a way to bring about real healing. I was ready.
In my first Journey Session I experienced true forgiveness. In this powerful step-by-step process I moved through emotions, released the stored pain and naturally came to a place of peace. It was like a miracle for me! I felt an enormous shift and the depression lifted. From this healing that had taken place within me, I was filled with compassion and love for my mother and went to see her – as I hugged her I could truly say “I love you”. Our relationship was renewed and it is so amazing that I no longer feel “triggered” by her! I just feel love and compassion naturally – free from the old “story”. My perception about it has changed and it has brought me peace in the deepest part of my being. This is enormous – that one journey process did more for me than the many years I previously spent in support groups!
Because that was the most profound and lasting inner work I have ever tried, I attended the Journey Intensive Weekend Workshop in Ottawa, Ontario in August 2006. I learned how to do journey work and I continue to use these practical tools in my daily life. My friends have noticed a change in me and have told me that I am more confident and free. I experience more joy and peace than I ever have and I am becoming more empowered and free to be who I am! Transformation continues to take place in many areas of my life.
I had a desire to become a practitioner to continue deepening in my own healing and facilitate others in their healing. While doing the 45 case studies I gained experience working with adults of all ages and with various issues relating to depression, unworthiness, abuse, fears, and phobias. I received accreditation as a Journey™ Practitioner in March, 2008 and have set up a practice in Perth, Ontario (Canada).
Having experienced moving beyond the old “story” that I had, it is particularly meaningful for me to work with those who want freedom from specific anxiety/fears/phobias, abuse, depression as well as self-confidence and self-esteem issues. I feel honored in guiding others with gentleness and compassion to open into the wholeness that is already inside them and find their own inner wisdom. No matter what else you have tried there are possibilities – somehow something takes place on a level deeper than our minds can comprehend allowing real change and healing to take place. I am so blessed to have found this Journey work.
I didn’t know what to expect coming into this weekend so I feared even being here. I recently have survived the death of my significant other and the journey has made me realize that throughout that experience of death when I thought I was being strong… I really wasn’t. All I did was set myself up for more failure. The Journey has taught me that by shoving your feelings or emotions down that it will only hurt me worse instead of just letting them go and not having physical problems like pain and anxiety.

Before I did The Journey I was in a pit of depression, drinking and smoking heavily. I had lost the loving, happy go lucky girl I knew I was inside. I went to psychologists, tried help lines and did everything I knew how to get me out of the depression. Through the Journey I was able to get to the core of what put the depression in place, and free myself from the rape I had experienced one year earlier. I feel as if I have been given my live back and I now I live the life of my dreams, happily married and expecting a family.
