What Graduates say…

From 2016 Graduate:

Dearest Andrew,

Amidst all the mad Christmas rush, and my crazy life in general, I have been constantly nudged by an increasingly persistent voice this week.  Essentially it keeps telling me to give you an idea of what it is you do…..  So, in order to get on with my crazy life I have succumbed and will try my best to give you an inkling of what you have done for me.

I can safely say, for starters, I am not the same person who came for my chat with you in 2014. Now, I fill the space of me, I feel solid, but soft, determined but very flexible.  I feel whole, and proud, unafraid and joyous.  My compassion surprises me, it takes me over. I can’t stand by and not DO something.  I laugh more often, I cry and feel more deeply. I am so grateful to be me yet humble at all that I have experienced. I can stay silent and not speak my opinions, and allow others their voice, even when I KNOW I’m right!. My friendships are more authentic because I can speak up for myself yet not get tangled in the guilt of it. My family have become more important to me than ever before because I see how much we have learned together and how when I let go, and live my own life, they can breath more easily, and learn to live their lives too.

Essentially I have learned to love myself, warts and all. Sounds so simple….   

We teamed up the other night, we wizards, and when we are all together (well 5 of us) WOW  – it’s the most beautiful thing.  To know and be known, to see and be seen by these beautiful women, well it’s energising and exhilarating and soothing and mysterious.  It’s amazing – and it is all down to YOU.  We don’t speak even weekly but if one needs another, well I have found them to be there, almost without asking… We were at a public speaking open night through Justine, and I think it’s my next step – I loved it and I wasn’t even speaking!!

I don’t know what you thought you were doing when you came up with this crazy idea, but if what has happened to me is anything to go by you CAN change the world, dear Andrew, one wizard at a time…

Thank you, darling, for all that you do and are.  You have given me a richness in my life I could never have imagined. I will be most grateful till the day I die…..

Now, hopefully I can get back to my mad Christmas rush, making a difference in my own simple way…

 With much love to you and Anna, and my best wishes for a beautiful, peaceful and healthy 2017.

Carmen Rendell“Our work over the 2 years would cover the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual self. Andrew brought together other teachers, some of whom he’d know for over 30 years. I felt privileged to be exposed to the views and experience of some of the leading thinkers and practitioners in the world.  Nothing has changed, yet everything has changed. Life won’t be the same again. It can be magical. I feel more at peace. But I also know life can be difficult and painful, but I now know why, and I know that like everything in this world. It’s temporary.”   Read more…

 

Justine Clement“The idea of a ‘User Guide to Being Human’ is not just borne out of the teachings I’ve had from the training itself, but it’s also about the way it’s opened up my thinking in everything I do, everything I think and everyone I meet. There is no doubt it’s been a transformation. It’s been a type of spiritual and psychological philosophy, or is it philosophical psychotherapy? Who knows, but whatever label I give it here, it all came down to one thing: “When you change, everything changes” and this is fundamental. Not just for an hour, or a day. But forever.”  Read more…

 

“Trust me, despite a lot of trying, I have never gone into a space like this before. I could write a book on all the experiences I’ve had over the past few years where everyone but me in the group has felt or experienced something. I’ve been frustrated and I’ve tried and thought my way to this point, but so many times I’ve been told that unless I feel it, it will never happen. Yet last Sunday, I did feel it and I knew in some way it would be liberating.”  Read more…

“It’s true what they say that when you are ready, the teacher appears. I am halfway through Wizard school and I am changed. It is that simple. I feel more incredible, fully alive, free and in love with life than I have ever been in my life and I am not just saying that. I had been in the darkest most painful zone of my life so far. I was in despair and hopelessness, wanting the world to stop. Andrew’s magic on the course with other brilliant instructors is to lead you to alchemical change which is the only way to really heal and feel flow again. I have done a lot of self growth in 15 years and nothing has touched and released my deepest wounding like this course. You will be held and loved while you heal in such a nurturing environment. Please kick yourself off the fence you have been sitting on and free fall back into the you that is so wanting to be here. It’s a beautiful place to be. Beyond your wildest dreams of who you thought you could be. I am now ready to be the me that was always wanting to be here.”
