Separation and isolation and fear are the sad results of our culture's untrusting times. From the time most of us are young, we are taught to protect ourselves—to be on guard and to compete with others for love, attention and approval from the world. "Don't Trust (people), Don't Talk (about personal things), Don't Feel," become the rules to live by in a world that's out to get us. The sad reality is that most young people and adults today are drenched in a belief system that has them feeling alone and separated from the people around them.

Our journey

My name is Jack and I'd like to tell you about the day that changed the course of my life.

One innocent night, I was sitting with some friends when someone said, "Did you hear about those kids who doused a 10-year-old boy's shoes with lighter fluid, and lit them on fire?" And suddenly everyone was sharing similar stories, each one more horrifying than the last. The over-arching question was, of course, why? Why is this happening with such increased regularity? Is bullying a growing epidemic or are we just blind to the problem until tragedy occurs? What is being done to prevent future tragedies? We spent the rest of the night questioning and trying to find some answers.

What an awesome experience. You certainly have a talent for dealing with people and developing rapport in such a short period of time. Many of the students expressed how much closer that they felt to one another as a result of your workshop. It was truly a blessing to have you.

I enjoyed the workshop. It really opened my eyes on things that I took for granted. Thank for the experience. You bring new life to me and my family. I really appreciate you know your job. Again, I really appreciate it.

Other testimonials from parents...

Thanks for your program. I truly think it helped many of our students express their concerns. All too often I see students at a loss and have no one to talk to. This day gave them a chance to talk about the things that never get said, but should. Thanx for everything.
