WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Here are a few things people have said about our experience working together.
“I never in a million years imagined that your kind of help – wise to humanness, wise to universal love, wise to the process of deep transformation – could exist. And I never in a million years imagined that what I am discovering – that I have a place of spiritual refuge in my body, that I am made of the love that is the universe – could in fact be true! All of this exceeds every conscious expectation I have ever had. At the same time, the joy I have always carried in me knows all of this to be true; that joy already lives in my core, and it is waving me home.”

Michael is a gift! As a retired psychologist, having specialized in trauma for over 40 years, and now running a meditation community of 550 people from all over the world, I am delighted to have Michael as my go-to therapy and Realization Process referral. He is extraordinarily accomplished in breadth and depth, not only in trauma-sequelae disorders, but also in a wide range of psychological issues. Add to that his brilliance and intuitive abilities in working with people on the path to realization (awakening), Michael has a knowledge base that’s internal as well as external. Michael is clear-sighted and insightful, with a combination of talent and skill few therapists possess in my experience. In my professional opinion, I highly recommend him without any reservations whatsoever. I’m happy to provide a personal reference to anyone at any time.

Michael has immense knowledge of Spiritual teachings and techniques and deep experiential understanding of them. With that being said, every session was an adventure: exploring layers of Self, starting with gross physical sensations, parsing through sensations of energy and lastly, emerging into transmutation point of stillness and movement in fundamental field of Consciousness. What a Journey!
Michael’s ease and openness to co-create in the process with every participant is a rare gift. It led to shifting and changing direction of exploration, constantly adapting to what was in the moment. This flow kept naturally unfolding lessons and gifts that were there for participants to discover. It was truly magical. This exploration into the nature of Consciousness was making subtle experiences more and more real, leaving less and less space for abstract understanding; and created abundant opportunities for embodiment of various fragments of Knowing.
In many classes with Michael, the depth of experiences was such that there were no words to be found to describe it.
– Lucy Goldstein / Shiatsu Practitioner
My life has been completely transformed after six months of working with Michael, both in private therapy and group meditation classes. He combines traditional counseling with numerous somatic and energy-based meditation techniques, and this combination has allowed me to make much faster progress than I would have made using only a single approach. I feel very lucky to be working with him, and I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone seeking help along their spiritual or emotional path.
– Andrea Lemon / Buddhist Meditation Teacher
My sessions with Michael were an extremely valuable tool for me. Michael is very knowledgeable; he is a highly intuitive and compassionate teacher and healer. He helped me dive much deeper into subtler layers of energetic holdings and conditioning, to become more aware of those layers, and to release and integrate them.
I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to work with him, and wholeheartedly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a more integrated, inclusive and embodied human experience.
– Alex Vedechkine
Michael has a way of gently guiding me into a connection with that awake stillness, with ease and grace. His pointers are inviting, warm, and non-threatening, allowing awareness into deeper and subtler contact with the energies of the body. Each time I’ve worked with Michael, I always walk away with a slightly new angle. His pointers always seem fresh, giving me some subtly deeper connection with this living moment. Michael has a real ability to meet me right where I’m at with his practical and down-to-earth guidance. His sessions have truly been a gift to my life.
– Myles Heffernan
Michael’s genuine and earnest dedication to his clients’ well-being is obvious and deeply soothing. His patient guidance and intuitive expertise leads to insightful places of healing. Even as an experienced meditator, I would highly recommend Michael and his process to anyone looking to go deeper in healing.
– Ishita Sharma / Come to Center
Working with Michael helped me identify a deeply held core belief that had been running my life. I am very grateful for this and the fact that I can now let go of this limiting belief.
– Susan M. / Financial Advisor
I felt like grew 10 years in 10 minutes. Our session and its outcome was nothing short of a miracle (because it saved a lot of time!). My wife said I looked taller when she saw me right after you and I had talked. Thank you! This has been invaluable!
– Armin R. / MBA
Upon my first consultation with Michael, I realized that I was dealing with a different kind of counselor. I’ve worked professionally with numerous mental health providers during my career in social services, and I’ve approached mental health proactively throughout my life. I’ve met dozens of therapists over the years and I’ve never experienced a more graceful, relaxed, or thorough integration and resolution after sessions. I’m so impressed!
