"I had lost my point of view, my “center”, my connection/relationship with our Source, our God. What I seem to have needed was someone whacking me over the head with the truths that Contemplative Light did ... whose specific language I had not heard before and which moved me instantly into a new heart-space. Just like that."

- Brian, British Colombia

"I applaud you for stepping out and providing information and services for those that are undergoing a spiritual transformation and are wondering what the heck is happening to them."

-Laura W., Colorado

"So few ever reach the place of understanding that Contemplative Light has here. They guide us on the journey so we can take our own!"

- Paul B., Georgia
