From NG, 2016: I just wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful guide and teacher and leader this past weekend...Your spirit, humor, energy, and expertise are all things to marvel, and I know that my experience happened in large part because of you and your guidance... If someone would have tried to explain to me what this experience would be and become for me, I would have laughed them off. I discovered very intense depths of consciousness and saw visions that were truly extraordinary...
From HU 2014: I want here to thank you personally for having led the workshop, and created such a safe space for exploration. The experience was extraordinary. “Life changing” is true, but the expression does not even come close to describe it. You created a safe space, to let every man in the group go through what they needed to go through... Your voice resonates in my memory of the event, as a sure, male presence welcoming me in my gay man’s identity. A gift which my Dad did not give me, could never having given me.
From TB 2016: Thank you for your amazing leadership. You struck just the right balance of wisdom, compassion, and just plain fun.
From JR 2016: You are a glorious facilitator and I always felt safe and protected through every step of the way. You anticipated any and every concern or thought and created an atmosphere where there was truly no right or wrong but just a place to fully be present at a level I never even knew was possible. I will always be indebted to you for the gift you gave all of us.
From DN 2011: Thank you so much for helping me become a more enlightened person... Your kindness, expert instruction, and genuine concern for the well-being of myself and the other guys made for a tremendous experience. You are a truly gifted teacher.
From EJ, 2016: Thanks so much for being a wonderful guide this past weekend. I also wanted to specifically thank you for accommodating me and checking in on me. It really helped me stay present and have a meaningful and powerful experience. I hope our paths cross again.
From GB, 2016: Your skill in orchestrating and setting the tone of the experience was a wonder. What would we have done without you?
Dear Steve, thank you so much for leading us through this amazing journey. I felt that you paid focused attention to me throughout the weekend, guiding me towards getting the most out of the experience. I imagine that everyone else felt the same way - the trademark of an outstanding guide. THANK YOU!!
Steve - thanks for bringing your thoughtful and professional approach to this unique and eye-opening weekend. You managed to build a strong sense of community in two days, which is such a gift!.
Steve is amazing. I can tell he truly loves what he does and it is contagious. He went out of his way to make everyone feel comfortable and answered any questions we had thoroughly and thoughtfully.
Steve, your teaching is a gift... Your humor is striking. Your passion for the work is apparent...Thank you for all that you do.
Steve, you are a great teacher! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and guiding us on this journey. Your caring and thoughtfulness had made me feel safe throughout the workshop.
Healer, magician, puckish guru, sexual shaman - thank you Steve for the gift of yourself and your knowledge, for your accessibility and availability, for your encouragement and your love. Thank you for helping to guide me/us to such visions and to such release, for taking me to a depth inside of me so radically beyond fear, to what I hope will become an abiding place of acceptance and joy.
