Testimonials / Comments from Former Participants

It was a privilege to participate in the formation program “Let the Heart Listen” with fellow searchers and to support each other on the spiritual path. With the gentle and wise guidance of the co-leaders, I discovered a greater awareness and a desire to engage in life more fully, to take a leap of faith, to open the door, to navigate the stepping stones and to be immersed in the seasons of life. “Let the Heart Listen” both invited and challenged me to listen to the calling deep within my heart. This calling is an ongoing blessing in my life.” – Margaret, VIC


I was unsure what to expect when I signed up for Let the Heart Listen. I am not one to speak openly about my spiritual life with others and was hesitant to share what was deep in my heart. Over the sessions, with the gentle directions and support of the group, I was able to open up to what was truly deep in my heart and learn to listen to the heart of others. Over the weeks, there was a discovery of many joys and also sorrows that were deep in my heart and although the course has ended, it really is only the beginning of my journey.” Melissa, VIC


What can I say about my experience with ‘Let the Heart Listen’? Still feeling the impact of this wonderful program. For me personally I valued the process of a much deeper discernment with being more honest about what was happening, being felt in my heart. Our quiet time enabled me to reflect on the gift of God’s love and grace, especially relational – the many people I love in my life. Our facilitator Carole provided our group with valuable learning processes, group sharing, identifying areas of challenge/ growth for how “to listen to all seasons of the heart.” – Anne, VIC
