Testimonials

"I have an Ivy League degree in psychology, a Harvard MBA, training as a psychotherapist, and extensive training with Young Presidents' Organization Forum groups, yet the 21 days I spent in the training provided me with valuable and sustaining perceptions and skills that none of these had provided."
— Terry P.

"This training will change your life. You will learn about yourself and others at levels you didn't know existed - to where a rich and sacred tapestry of human connection and differences holds the universe together. Even more importantly, you will learn the skills that enable you to carry this magic into the world."

"The saying - 'walk a mile in someone else's shoes' - the Matrix group allowed me to follow the path of someone else and her ancestors - for hundreds of miles, across oceans, over decades, even centuries, without ever giving up my own shoes, my own ancestors, my own truth."
— E. Smith
Introductory Workshop Participant


"I have only completed the first of four weekends and I am already beginning to integrate the insights and tools into my consulting and training practice. Without having to open a book to review the content, I feel as though my awareness of groups has shifted. I can't wait for the next installment! "

"To me, MLI is a wonderful learning process for business and community leadership development. It opens a person up, increases one's personal choices, creates flexibility for responding. One develops emotional intelligence and becomes more resourceful in all types of settings. It is the stuff MBA programs never touch."
— Dieter A.
Participant

"MLI was an incredible experience that helped me grow tremendously personally and professionally. As a clinical psychologist, I had studied group process before. However, this was the experience that most helped me understand myself in new ways. The training was not easy nor simple but was one of the most important experiences in my life. Thank you for your caring, your expertise, and your loving leadership."
— Sue L., Ph.D.
Clinical Psychologist
Evanston, IL


"It has now become clear to me that a big part of my discomfort in groups has been my difficulty holding onto my differences, my uniqueness, my perspectives while still staying in close loving connection. I'm learning so much about this - how to honor my differences and your differences without believing I'll lose or leave the relationship."
— Anne Wagner
Foundation Training Participant

"I have learned that our separateness is a culturally imposed illusion, and that reconnecting in full and healthy ways to others will be the most profound healing work that I could do for myself, my community, and the planet."
— Tracy

"The more I do the Matrix work, the more ease I experience when in groups; a wonderful change from the petrifying fear that used to be my norm."

"This training helped clear some minefields I had been living with around group leading for a long time - enabling me to imagine a way to share who I really am on a huge scale."
— Scot M.
Introductory Workshop Participant


"A member of a training in Chicago in 2000, I am here, standing tall and here to tell you that every moment of my training was a challenge. I found it enlightening, consuming, heart-filled, frustrating, exhilarating, annoying, joyful, terrifying, comforting, irritating, restoring, hysterical, healing and transforming. My experiences ran the gamut of human emotions and experiences, all of which can be summed up in two words: Life Altering. Issues of trust (in self and others), community, tolerance, growth - and more. Yes, ‘life altering‘. Definitely. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. This time, I‘d enter freely vs. kicking and screaming! As one insightful co-participant said: ‘This program could change the world.‘ True."
— Lois Hobart

"There was an incredible feeling of interconnectedness and we realized that everyone is an absolute necessity if the group is to manifest its full expression. It makes me question whether all groups could feel like this. What are the limitations I see and bring to groups, communities and the world? Just Matrix it baby!"
— Chris Loose

"Profound and inspirational It transforms in all the ways we live, learn, and work. My partner and I have been compelled to weave the learnings into the work we do in the world. With the Relational Matrix, we help organizations improve their collective relationship to change, and empower people to arrive wholly present in their work."
— Frank B.
Organizational Consultant
Naperville, IL


"This work has given me new insight into the ‘we are one‘ theme. How very interrelated we are and what we do to one, happens to the entire community. I learned the difference between intention and impact, and to have the courage to check these things out with people. I learned to take back projections I had on others. I learned about the ‘field of love‘ and in this nothing is impossible."
— Debra
Participant


"Matrix is the missing link! I have participated in many trainings that focus on individual growth and development, but until Matrix, I never understood how to communicate effectively with a group of people. I experienced and learned how to interact with myself, with one other person, and with an entire group of people. It is a powerful, loving and essential training for anybody who wants to communicate and to be heard by other human beings."
— Janet D.

"There is something so mystical, powerful and practical about the Matrix model that I believe this body of work has the potential to help hospice the old paradigm of separateness and control, and help midwife a paradigm of interconnectedness and collaboration."
— Ling Thio

"What we really trained in was a language of connection (verbal and nonverbal) so that where we were once limited, we are now expansive, where we were once stuck we are now spacious, where we were once paralyzed by fear, we are now ready to lean into discomfort. "
— A. Lessing
High School English Teacher
Chicago, IL


"Within a few months, I could see how my participation in the Matrix had already begun to inform my skills for relating and negotiating conflict as applications began to show up in my personal life as well as with my clients. I love being able to witness others respond skillfully and with heart in the group circle. I learn about myself and relationship and myself-in-relationship every meeting. This group is of great value to me. I don't know of another venue where I could engage and work on these skills with such loving and supportive guidance."
— NoŽlle Morris
Embodiment Facilitator

"The Matrix model creates such a web of expression, range, and intelligence in groups that I have never experienced before. I believe this work is so needed in the world in all areas, family, work, government, neighborhoods, schools, any community setting could use the Matrix model and go to dimensions never before explored, experienced or revealed. I look forward to the growth of this model in the world and the change it can make to human lives."
