What people have said about our courses
“In Sept. I listened to each week’s session 3 times that week, then once each again at the beginning of October, this morning I listened to week 1 again and it seemed I heard it all for the first time! Wow that blew me away, 2 things were very significant:
1. After 30 years of dance and never having moved from this house I had no idea how much stuff I had collected / hoarded, until now I couldn’t imagine parting with any of it. I dragged it all out from hiding in cupboards, closets, under the bed….October 17 was my middle eastern bazaar. It felt so good but emotional to release it all.
In mid Sept. I was planning to book a private session with you in October once the 5 Spine Love 2 sessions ended, but it naturally unfolded and it feels amazing!
2. Mark and I have settled into a fantastic routine of a 2 hour love making session on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings ( our son still lives at home but he is gone to work by 7am) Before my 4 day Body Talk Fundamentals course with you in March 2015 we had 1 orgasm each, once a week for 30 years. I am not always interested but thinking about our last ESO session gets me into our “love nest” ( our daughter moved out in May so I hung purple and orange fabric to transform that warm little bedroom into a sex room) Mark is only mildly interested as he has always had a low libido but he is content practicing Karezza ( pleasure with no goal of orgasm) and still having 1 orgasm once a week. I on the other hand am blessed with 50-100 very wet massive orgasms each session ( we tried to count them last spring and now they are coming faster and stronger)
BTW my hot flashes are 100% gone since my Free Fall session in April, they were done by the end of that weekend. I still spend some time each morning naked and sleep naked as well. My skin is incredibly soft and smooth like velvet! My whole life I had bumps on the sides of my thighs and backs of my arms which I hated.
I hosted a 4 week Red Tent Gathering in July with different guest speakers, informing and supporting women in every stage of their life. It was a huge success 20-25 people each week. This fall I have a bimonthly group of 10 which is much better for sharing and bonding. We have been exploring ( on our own at home ) self pleasuring ideas including the jade egg practice, sensual dance….. Being able to share my new found knowledge is very satisfying! I spend a great deal of time reading and watching sex related articles each day.
I am NOT teaching dance this fall ( something I felt in April at Free Fall but it was such a foreign idea then) I am taking 2 dance classes, so fun to be a student again!
Thanks for your support and knowledge through this year it truly has been freeing and transformational. The best year of my life!
An “A” for you!”

“I feel sooo very calm inside my body now. I never experienced such a degree of patience and serenity before. I sleep better. Spending time with family during the holidays was most delightful and easy this time.”
“Thank you so much for your generosity, your caring and compassion, your powerful ability to communicate easily, personally and with great clarity to a large group, and your sharing of your knowledge and insights. I have learned so much, and grown in areas of my life that have been stuck for a long time, despite much personal growth work as well as BodyTalk. I think your combination of the power of group sessions with exercises and information from Breakthrough and Freefall has opened me up for important shifts in my life. I was also very inspired by your introductory video–your honesty,warmth and humour were delightful. And when I read your account of facing cancer again,losing a relationship and having a miscarriage, but still finding a way through, I realized how often I slip into victim mode for trivial things yet it really isn’t helpful even for more drastic events. Your strength and courage are an awesome example of being authentic. One new awareness is that I can dissolve old beliefs,etc. by giving their source or roots what they need, eg. often love & understanding. In the past I have not known how to let go of them, even when I was aware of my judgments, fears, etc. The sessions also helped lighten the load of many beliefs, etc., especially from my back or back of heart. Now there is more distance between me and remaining beliefs so I can more easily step away from them, as I am less attached to them. Am also more aware of how often I self sabotage or self abuse physically and emotionally by demanding too much, then criticizing for not meeting my unrealistic demands. Will work with the exercises on self-love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the immeasurable gifts I received from your course. I will pay it forward as opportunity presents. And I will continue to work with the recordings and exercises for deeper levels. Wishing you all the best in your life and work,”
“The things that stood out most to me:
Feel free to use my words.”
“I wanted to thank you again for offering this 40 day experience. It’s given me a lot to think about. And shift about.
I just had the opportunity this evening to listen to the BT session from yesterday. It hit all the areas of my body that neede addressing, as did the other BT sessions that you did throughout this time. I did notice yesterday afternoon and evening that I was going to the bathroom a lot. Now, having heard the session from yesterday, I know why: release, release, release.
An FYI: my mom passed just before you offered this so I thought it was perfect timing to help me release the grief related to her passing as well as, I’ve found, a great deal of grief that comes from active memories from this and past lives. I wasn’t even able to listen to the first session in one sitting. I had to stop part way through and come back to it later. I took that to mean that I had a great deal to shift from that session. I found other sessions to be uncomfortable as well, so they were definitely having an effect. I made myself finish those in one sitting, though.
Many of the early childhood things you brought up resonated with me as well as the past life memories, or marbles, as they’re called in BT, I know. 🙂 I’m also doing Bodytalk on myself and, between yours and mine, I’m finding I’m having quite a few ‘aha’ moments. I was a bit of a packrat as well and, tough and emotional as it’s been, I’ve been able to let go of papers I’ve had for years, bit by bit. Baby steps.”
“What a powerful session today! I actually had to listen to it 3 times to make it through as I kept experiencing a heavy wave of fatigue. I have been struggling with pain for the last few years in my right lower back and sacrum area and down the leg. Every aspect of the session really hit home for me. Thank you!”
“I thank you again, very much, for this wonderful and loving opportunity for healing you give all of us.
I just listened to the second session recording of the 40 day BodyTalk Celebration and Living Life Fully and I am speechless as well as very grateful. I did not get much sleep in the last few days so I did not attend the call which was at 5:15am for me. However, I did not sleep deeply as soon as the session started and felt how my throat was becoming sore and a flue-like feeling developed – without any previous signs for it nor even any bugs around me as we go into the heat of summer here in Brisbane. I did tap my Cortices before I got up, feeling very off, and soothed the symptoms with some Essential Oils.
As soon as my youngest daughter went to sleep for her nap around lunch time I listened to the recording. And am stunned how tailor made it again was for me, as so many others experience as well, as well as that I felt such deep reaction to it again on all levels. The flue-like feeling as well as my sore throat has almost vanished by now. I am amazed at the intensity of your sessions, which, although having received many many sessions, also from senior instructors, I have not experienced as such before. I am able to sense exactly when the session takes place although asleep. If healing takes place in the same intensity that would be so very fantastic! Yes, I am doing all the exercises as well to facilitate big changes. ;)”
“I want to thank you for this exercise in particular. When I did it this past week it revealed a memory that I didn’t even hardly know about and certainly didn’t realize that I was storing it in my body. The intense energy that was released was incredible! I’ve uncovered the identities that were attached to this memory and the relief and joy I feel as a result is incredibly liberating. Thank you for offering me a very unexpected catalyst to healing!”

“Great session and thank you. During this week I started reading my chakra book “wheels of life” and keeping only to the base chakra. For week one relating to the first chakra I was provided yoga exercises to help ground as well as techniques for survival meditations. I also have fully taken advantage of the beautiful weather here in California this week, this has allowed me to take longer walks, to hear the birds sing, watch the tress blow and to sit in the park with my little puppy. I mention this puppy because he has been attuned to a reiki master, as we were in the park, I was ready to leave a bit more readily than “Sampson” he continue to push my grounding experience. As I watched him take in everything going on in the park (kids playing, dogs banking, birds signing etc.) it also brought me to a beautiful serene setting seeing the beauty and taking in the awe of just being and how beautiful nature and life really is. Being grateful. I also seem to be a bit calmer this week. Thank you again, I look forward to session 2 and moving on into my book with the second chakra. As they seem to be working well together for me.”

“This has been very interesting for me and really I have never thought about how the roles of masculine and feminine are played in each of us. I had a session with David yesterday and it was really interesting as this very topic of masculine energy came up and how my masculine energy is so much more dominant than the feminine for me because of the roles I have had in my life and my maternal grandparents. I just found it interesting how this all came around to being addressed this month while I was working with you on this very topic!”

“Hmmm, reflection. I panicked a little thinking, great now she is going to evaluate how well/poorly I did, I better write the right answers! It was on my mind all day about what I learned, felt, found. Then i realized that there is no right or wrong, I got everything I needed, I may not have shifted or found awareness like others did, but it was what I was ready for! So I guess that was one of my ahah’s! I have started to ‘let go’ of judgements and everything that comes along with it. Throughout this journey I really started to discover ‘self’ and that sounds crazy that I couldn’t before. Who knew there was a whole support team inside me, I still need to learn to connect with them more though and remember that I don’t need to be the same everyday, I can be soft, strong, playful etc – I can ‘best support myself’ in whatever way I need. I also learned to give myself more credit, I don’t need someone to tell me what to do or do it to/for me for it to be successful, I experienced at least 10 of the days before they were sent out, I really am connected to all and can tap into that! This also taught me that I need to read and journal more to activate this and follow through. So in the end I realize this is not a race, competition or evaluation but rather a journey tailored to each of us, awareness has grown, I feel like I have gained an everyday tool to expand my awareness even more. The past 40 days have absolutely stirred up A LOT (this may have been hard to write because lately I just feel things shift but can’t put words to it even in my clients I feel it without being able to explain), I feel a lot of resistance in me right now and am at the stage of letting go. My breath has been off, can’t catch it throughout the day, my pelvis is locked too. I also noticed my body in different light throughout this, one day my feet were so fascinating and that happened with many parts! So today is my day to gently support myself in letting go and using my voice.
I really can’t say enough good things about FF40, it was something I looked forward to everyday.”
“I have spent my life cold, dark and lonely. Depressed to points that I don’t wish for any other human to understand, So hurt at times I couldn’t breathe, anxiety and pain crippling my body on a daily basis. The internal struggle that just would never stop to give me reprieve, it seemed, for not even for one day.
I have looked forward to receiving the emails every day..almost like Christmas morning. When I read today’s I felt really sad that in one way this would come to an end. I had been thinking of how these daily emails were a “to do” but this morning I changed that thought and have created a “must do list”. This list only allows items that will make my life and experiences more rich, allow for deeper insight and most importantly, heal. The “must do’s” are are not all pleasant but necessary in order for me to LIVE, and be ALIVE in a wholehearted manner, no more half-hearted crap.
Acceptance… the biggest ah-ha for me. To accept all of life’s experience’s and pain as opportunities to heal and grow, free self awareness!! I’m now in a place, that when I feel pain, I take the time to go inward and investigate. Hear the pain, recognize it and learn from it. Allow it to be my best teacher. It’s a curvy road with so many ups and downs, but I am learning to enjoy what is coming at the next turn and take life as it unfolds.
Kindness…the day of the whip. The most difficult day for me. I have not had one day in my lifetime where I that whip hasn’t been use repeatedly. I have no idea how to live without it. I thought it was necessary in order to reach goals, work hard and live honestly….not so much. Not only do I whip myself, damn I’m good and using it to keep others away!!! I had to wrap the whip in kindness and make a conscious effort to allow kindness into my life from all angles. Oh and not at all shocking that I now connect with people so much deeper and on a regular basis, multiple times a day in fact. People just start talking to me, I’m still taken aback by it… I give gratitude to something within my life and about myself on daily basis, usually at bedtime.
Space…the personal kind. The borders and blockades around me where so over the top, no one was getting in, and I certainly was not getting out. No wonder I couldn’t breathe!!! I hadn’t seen one of my friends for since starting FF40 and ran into her last week leaving an marathon night shift. We chatted for a bit, and as we said goodbye she gave me a hug and told me that she felt welcome to do so, that the wall wan’t so thick, I didn’t feel so defensive. Making the commitment to put lotion on myself every day seemed kinda silly, but now I see the ripples that it sent throughout my life. I didn’t even let myself in, why would anyone else ever join me….and this leads to vulnerability…
Oh my, this is a big one. It has taken ALOT of encouragement, the day of vulnerability I signed up for eharmony…. I felt nauseated. I struggled with paying the money and realized that my self worth was playing a huge part in this one too. One of my first matches was someone I know. It took me a few days, well okay over a week, and sent an email asking him out. I got denied, which was/is hard to take, but I see the good side in it too 🙂 Just having the strenght to put myself in a vulnerable situation is huge for me and one that I am ready to continue to put energy in to.
These 40 days have been some of the most raw experiences that I’ve ever had, and as I have many things on the must do list, I really have learned to take it one day at a time.
Thank you so very much Allison, and I mean that WHOLEHEARTEDLY.”
“what do i know now that i didn’t know 39 days ago?
Compassion for my body, being able to look at it without judgments and criticism and more with compassionate observation. Observing how dissociated my upper body is from my lower. Seeing the sensuality within my back and my curves and looking beyond the surface. Really seeing my body consciously from a view that I’ve never seen before. Embracing vulnerability and discovering my intimate artist…me. Realizing that I can paint from that intimacy with no expectations and I saw something beautiful and felt it and that’s all that matters.
Realizing that I do have the will to quit something for 40 days (coffee), but that it was actually more difficult for me to start something for 40 days. I wanted to commit to my yoga mat for 10 minutes every day, but when I couldn’t exercise because I was sick or my knee was bad I didn’t go on the yoga mat. Then realizing that I didn’t need to exercise to commit to my yoga mat, that I could have done corpse pose, meditated, read a book, been still in my thoughts. Being proud of this awareness and realizing that this was just as much a part of falling in love with myself.”
“So the biggest change has been that now it’s NATURAL for me to put my needs first, rather than an overwhelming, never-ending struggle. And my biggest revelation is the huge transformation that can occur (even of a ‘hopeless’ situation) when practical action through the lens of PUTTING SELF FIRST (honestly) is taken. A surprising fact to me is that it seems that TRUE PRACTICAL ACTION can only be identified after working with self so honestly (that said after years of ‘practical action’ and never making the strides I did in the last 40 days!).”

“I just needed to tell you that I have been flirting all over the place and LOVE it!!! I love smiling at people like I mean it and not being afraid to look anyone in the eyes, of having little conversations and giving more freely of my time and interest. Thanks for that challenge. I loved the whole experienced and learned a ton!! xoxo Thanks for sharing your passion, time and expertise!”

“I just wanted to thank you for putting together this series. I really feel, especially after this last session that I am on the outskirts of a lot of struggle an coming into a place of more clarity and understanding. The homework has been SOOOO difficult, but doable. I don’t know if it would have been even doable under different circumstances. I am very excited of our upcoming session, my intentions are for further clarity and more of these centred feelings. Again thank you so much. I am feeling like I have myself back in an old and new way Xxx So much love to you.”

“Some thoughts to share:
“This has been an amazing 40 day exploration!!! I am grateful for all of us who have been part, but especially for you and your commitment to Self!!! I truly felt seen; warts and all!!! Thank you for the work that you do and for being you!!! It has been such a powerful experience; I know we all do our parts bur you are an inspiration and I am honored to be part. The wisdom you embody just shines through in the sessions that you facilitate!!! It really is beautiful to experience!!!”
“I just wanted to say thank you for these past weeks. I had a period of intense loss over Christmas that sent me into a deep depression. Working each day was painful and difficult, but as I sit here today there is a wonderful peace and the knowledge that life gives us everything we need to heal. I can not change the situation but there is hope in the middle of the darkness. And for the first time in my life I am present to my pain. Not pretending or putting on a happy face. Who knew I had it in me? lol
Anyways, thank you from the bottom of my heart! This has changed my life.”
