The experience of Basic and Advanced Lifespring Training and
the Leadership Program have made an incredible difference in
the quality and perspective of my life. The relationship
with my family, friends and co-workers are now open,
spontaneous, and filled with warmth and appreciation. ... At
work, the performance level and morale of my employees has
improved tremendously. I am proud of the team atmosphere
that has been created. ... These trainings are a wonderful
tool for everyone willing to experience life to its fullest.

To whom it may concern:
...We strongly recommend the courses that Lifespring offers.
After taking the Basic Training, the Adanced Course and
participating in the Leadership program, we both have
discovered untapped potential in ourselves. We have gained a
deeper understanding and knowledge of human nature. We
communicate more effectively with co-workers, prospects and
customers. We have both assumed increased levels of
resonsibility based on the results we produce in the sales
environment. If you want your employees to utilize their
untapped reserve of talent and ability to the benefit of
your organization, then assist and support them in taking
the Lifespring courses - THEY WORK!

To whom it may concern,
I am the President and owner of a small retail chain. This

created some extraordinary results in my business and
personal life. In a little over a year I have opened five
new stores. We now employ over 75 people and have a
projected annual sales volume of over 3 1/2 million dollars.
I am convinced that many of the accomplishments were a
direct result of the skills I developed in this personal

accomplishments in my business, I also find running my
company exciting yet less stressful.

... There is nothing like the boss getting excited about
something! ... Needless to say, I have benefited enormously
from the Lifespring curriculum. The President of the
Company, ... one of the Vice Presidents, and the Director of
Administration have also participated.
Most important is that the employees who do the training
return to work with new appreciation for excellence in their
personal and professional lives.
... Having confirmed my own assessment with that of other
corporate leaders, I have no hesitation in welcoming
inquires or recommending making the Lifespring training's
part of an employee education/training program.

Recently, I met with one of our employees that has been
through Lifespring's Basic and Advanced Training, and I just
wanted you to know that the change in this person has been
Just a few weeks ago, this person was in the top 50% of my
staff, but was not a super performer. After 10 days of
Lifespring he has moved himself to the top 5% of my staff,
in the company of other employees that have 10 years more
experience. This person's general motivation, positive
outlook, work ethic, and ability to lead others has improved
so dramatically that his Management Team elected him to
Technical Management after only 30 days on a new project.
The change was so dramatic that I decided to take a look at
this program myself. I enrolled in the Basic Lifespring
Training, and it proved to be an incredible experience.
... Furthermore, I have encouraged all of my employees to
take advantage of the program. Not only are my people more
productive and enthusiastic, I believe they are generally
more happy, focused, and committed. Trusting all remains
well with you...

Hi John, I wanted to share with you. My mother, Georgia was
struck by a car last week and did not survive. There are
many emotions and things to do now. I wanted to thank you
and your father for the Lifespring trainings that have
continued to assist me (the tools I gained) since the
trainings and at this time in my life. I was able to heal
old wounds long ago and continue to live life much
differently due to the transformation that I experienced
years ago in the LS trainings. For all of those people who
have complaints (usually those who never experiences it 1st
hand,) I say to them that the person that I became as a
result has lasted from 1992 and it has been amazing
throughout my life. I am a testimony to the possibilities of
transformation beyond your wildest dreams. I miss her, yes,
but I am so much healthier about her passing and about life
than I would have been if I hadn't had the training from
Lifespring. Some may think I am a "moonie" and that I "drank
the cool-aid." I got my life back and was able to heal and
forgive myself and others and live out dreams...and I
continue to go for them. They say you can't change a person.
I learned through the trainings that as I shift, others in
my realm (and beyond) have no other choice but to
respond/react differently to me. That is the shift that
continues and spreads throughout the world. I thank you and
your father for creating something that heals so many.
"I saw very clearly how valuable a true, honest relationship
with myself is. It's really the first step in living
harmoniously with the rest of the world. I don't need
peripheral social games to make myself okay; I can now
accept myself as I am."
"Lifespring is the first opportunity I've ever had to
intelligently and objectively examine my life. I was able to
try out alternate means of behavior and get immediate
feedback from others."
"For the first time I could see exactly what I needed to
make me happy. And, I discovered it had nothing to do with
what I'd always thought was important or necessary in my
life. In fact, when it hit me and I saw how damn simple it
was, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry."
"Prior to Lifespring, it was very difficult for me to
express my feelings. When I finally allowed myself to let
go, there was such a feeling of pure joy."

"I discovered that I had much more to learn about myself
than I had thought. The Lifespring Training provided me with
a refreshing environment in which to expand my personal
awareness and to plumb my innermost parts."

responsibility for their lives. As anyone who has taken the
training knows, the emphasis is on getting on with your

"The unique message in Lifespring is about taking action.
Not just thinking about your vision or reporting about it,
but living it. Lifespring brings you to the edges of what
you thought was possible, and that's the kind of
participation that makes my life alive and passionate."
Pamela Fahden, Publisher
"One of the biggest differences the Lifespring trainings
made for me was learning to give up excuses for not doing
important things. My biggest stumbling block in the past was
believing that I didn't know how or wasn't smart enough.
That just doesn't stop me anymore."
Dan Gibbons, Business Executive
"Since Lifespring, I hold myself responsible for my life.
It's up to me. Consequently, I'm much happier and on track
with my life."
Kim Eastwood, Chemical Engineer
"Lifespring had a profound impact on me. It was one of the
great breakthroughs of my life. I had been recognized as a
leader in many organizations over the past decades, but in
Lifespring I discovered authentic leadership and personal
power on a new level."

their work much faster since I did Lifespring."

"My life since Lifespring has been incredible. I look at all
that I've accomplished and am stunned by what I'm doing now.
If anyone had told me eight years ago that I'd be doing this
- making this kind of money, having this much fun - I'd have
never believed them."
Rosalie Maretsky Mary Kay Sales Director
"Because the training is experiential, it never goes away.
Now I regularly have conversations of the same caliber I
experienced in the training: open, honest, trusting,

Bill Garret Physician
"The Lifespring course was a turning point in my life. I got
a new clarity and focus about what I am committed to. Rather
than systematically avoiding certain kinds of risks, as I
had in the past, I began meeting the challenge of actively
pursuing my vision. As a result, my whole life is richer."
Richard Linowes College Professor
"In the Lifespring seminars I opened up new horizons for
myself. I saw where I was headed and what I really am
committed to accomplishing. I was empowered to take action,
move forward, take risks, and accept the responsibility for
creating what matters to me. I've made leaps in my career
and in my relationship with my husband that I would only
have wished for before."
Barbara Fagan Management Consultant
"In the Lifespring training I had a breakthrough about
participating with people. I realized the difference I make
in people's lives and got committed to expanding it."
