Congratulations on this major accomplishment and my appreciation to HFI for Its role in paving that path towards enlightenment. My time at HFI provided me with valuable moments of growth. And the notions that relationships are essential in the realm of professional practices was helpful in that journeying. Thanks to the stewardship of David, and Donna, Stuart and Naomi for their contributions, in that path of "Beginning Anew". And especially concerning the role that the "Gong" played in that invite, which heralds you to consider shaping your narrative. All the best.

Finding HFI has been a homecoming for me. The community made room for the depth and the potency I always sensed was waiting for me. I feel, at HFI, there is room and support for my brightest light and my darkest dark. Words cannot express my gratitude for all of the trainers and participants who have had the courage to take personal responsibility and be together in the harder feelings working toward personal integrity. I truly believe this work will change the world and I feel committed to helping make that happen. Big Love HFI. Happy Anniversary!

I found HFI in the Door Opener publication. Back in 2011 there was this tiny advertisement written about a program, a place, a group, PEOPLE actually discussing and dealing with childhood trauma - if you could imagine THAT! Well, I called HFI immediately and Stuart answered the phone. I asked a bunch of questions and he gave me a bunch of answers. I made an appointment to meet with some David guy. I hung up thinking, wow, a male receptionist, interesting LOL. Little did I know how this would deeply change my life. I met with David and remember feeling heard, seen and validated as I shared some "highlights" of my childhood. I was floored! There was actually someone who... Read more
I found HFI in the Door Opener publication. Back in 2011 there was this tiny advertisement written about a program, a place, a group, PEOPLE actually discussing and dealing with childhood trauma - if you could imagine THAT! Well, I called HFI immediately and Stuart answered the phone. I asked a bunch of questions and he gave me a bunch of answers. I made an appointment to meet with some David guy. I hung up thinking, wow, a male receptionist, interesting LOL. Little did I know how this would deeply change my life. I met with David and remember feeling heard, seen and validated as I shared some "highlights" of my childhood. I was floored! There was actually someone who wanted to talk about trauma, I was scared to death, intrigued and delighted all at the same time. My life has been completely transformed by the trainers, energy and physical space and friends made over the last 8 years. I honestly don't know where I'd be without the Wisdom and teachings offered by the beautiful souls who held me over and over when I needed it the most. I've grown, I've cried, I've raged, I've sunk, I've risen and all of it was accepted with love. As I continue to appreciate, then work with how I shade my own light today, I've come to know myself in new ways, retrieving more and more parts of my original self. My life is amazing today because of your guidance, I am forever grateful HFI. I will be back, time and time again. ๐Ÿ˜

I was always inspired by the way Stuart and Naomi ran our workshops in Germany. Although I couldnโ€™t keep the connection all the time, I learned a lot, and it stayed with me in deeper places. So it comes up in me and helps me in my daily work with patients and also with myself, in supporting my feelings and thoughts, looking foreword. I am thankful for my experiences with you both, Stuart and Naomi, and I hope you are well.

I'm a big fan of HFI and all the founders and partners. I have seen and experienced your work. I thank you for your help in my healing and for the healing of those I love. Your affect ripples through those you touch directly.

I am so glad that I became a part of your training program in Kansas City almost 40 years ago. My life is immensely brighter and fuller as a result. Somehow โ€œthank youโ€ doesnโ€™t begin to capture my deep gratitude to you Naomi and Stuart.
