Seminar Testimonials

The E&P experience in Sedona was truly a life changing experience. Within hours of starting the process of discovery we all felt that we were in a very safe and empowering life event. Our guides led us thru a very structured process where we delved deep into who we were, gathered parts of our souls and assembled these gifts into a written message that defines one at a core level, a mechanism to return when you find yourself out of alignment with your core and a statement that speaks to how you will use your core self to guide you as your choose the direction your life will travel.It has been over 2 years since the experience and I have just finished writing out my E&P. (as I do every morning) This experience is for those who desire to understand who they are in a more intimate way and thru a process of excitement, tears and mutual love leave with a direction of how to navigate life in a more loving and authentic way.Thank you Patrick for your guidance and vision.

The E&P experience was truly magical. The setting in Sedona could not have been more perfect for this spiritual life experience that enabled me to truly connect with my inner self as well as those in our group. It allowed me to validate my strengths as well as my vulnerabilities while gaining clarity on my mission and purpose. It also helped me find direction while grounding me. It is an experience that continues to keep me grounded as I move forward and continue to grow and evolve.The atmosphere with the other participants felt like “The Big Chill” connecting us deeply with one another as we were searching our own souls.Through a series of exercises we were able to open up and completely trust one another down to our deepest core.It is an experience I would recommend to anyone and hope to do again one day with my husband.Thank you Patrick and Debbie for being our guides.

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend in Sedona, AZ with Patrick and would highly recommend the process to anyone wanting to get in touch with who they really are and what they really want out of life at its most basic essence. Working with Patrick to help clarify my true essence and purpose was nothing short of magical. The process is very grounding and supportive and helped me bring out my best self. I continue to use my essence and purpose statement whenever I start to feel myself spinning in the stratosphere and need to come back home! Patrick is a master at facilitation and uses a great combination of humor, humility and honor to help you bring out your essence and purpose.

Sedona's E&P was an experience that I will never forget and will cherish. Not knowing what to expect, and it far exceeded any expectations I had. My confidence level has grown since those days. I realized I am pretty amazing, and don't need validation.I was able to connect with others and go deeper to a place I rarely visit. This group helped me do that. We were a family for the days we were there. We walked, we did yoga, we talked, we laughed, we cried, we cooked and ate together.(Oh yes. and we drank together!) Many worthwhile exercises we did together that enabled us to go inward. How many of us REALLY know ourselves....deep,deep down?I came home a better version of myself, and with a new name that is now my middle name..."Aphrodite"There was so much love and warmth in the days I was there, and I felt so connected.I have remained warmly close with all of the wonderful people I met that day!

After coming to upstate New York 1 1/2 years ago and meeting with your group, I came home and proceeded to get my life back on track. After a very long down time thru the recession, I truely needed to be reminded that I am and will always be a 'blessed and special' person. And that the only thing I can control is myself and how I react to what goes on around me. Working thru the process of my mission statement, I was able to put in writing what I want to accomplish and this statement hangs on my wall by my 'sacred alter table'. When I pray and meditate each day, I read the statement out loud. I brought a pine cone home from the grounds we walked on while with you, so I can touch and see something physical from that special time. Also, I believe that in reconnecting with my higher power, I have been led to the right places to find out what was physically wrong with me. After receiving the right directions and following them the last three (3) months, my blood pressure has dropped from 194/100 to 122/58 and my heart no longer skips beats. Seventeen (17) pounds have fallen off and most of it from around my middle section. My strength and stamina are gradually returning. I truely thought that I was going to die, and felt so bad, I did not care. We get so caught up in the battle to survive and what is happening around us that it is easy to forget who we are, where we came from and what our true purpose is. Putting unbelievable stress on myself led me down all the wrong pathways and somewhere along the way I felt responsible for the market and economic problems of the world. And if I worked harder, everything would straighten out. What a relief to realize that I did not cause the market crash and again could not control anything but how I, myself react. Thank you for throwing a lifeline and a light out to me, so I could start the walk back to reality. I am very thankful and grateful for your abundance of caring and love and friendship. You have magnificent heart.

I have actually taken the E&P class twice and highly recommend it! Truly a transformative experience and one that continues to evolve. The experience was unique is that it was a community that bonded quickly and deeply over the 3 days. The support and genuine love and caring was amazing and contagious. Everyone was connected and had sincere interest in the success of the group. It is an inward journey to your core and invaluable once you harvest the information! You certainly won't obtain this depth in a regular seminar and Patrick is committed to the process and bringing the golden nuggets of truth out foreach individual.I use my essence , mission and purpose statement constantly to make sure my actions and decisions are in alignment with my soul both professionally and personally. I find the core of my statements do not change however over time they are getting more refined. It is truly a journey and one I am grateful that I took. Thank you Patrick, Debbie and group members for such an extraordinary weekend.

For me clarity, unclutterring and healthy focus were the amazing results of the Essence and Purpose Seminar. This was by far the most beneficial, life changing seminar of the many I have attended in my 75 years...wish I had done it 50 years ago! The beautiful process I would recommend to anyone of any age.

Patrick’s E&P process and retreats are powerful. As a facilitator myself I found his model and methods to be a rare gem in addressing the fullness of the personal, professional, and deeper spiritual / creative aspects of each individual. Patrick has a gift for melding a solid personal growth process with highly effective dialogue and creating a real community with participants in his groups. Highly recommended.
