Passionately Alive feedback April 2012


Name: Jean Thomas, Healsville. Seminar Date: April 2012

This is the best way to clear any emotional baggage from the past. It is the best way to have a clear slate for any guilt, shame or criticism you have about yourself or other people. It is the best way to learn the skills you need to live a life of richness, abundance and love. As a result of attending this seminar I will be the person I am in any given moment and strive to live a heart centred life.



Name: Ken Symons Seminar, Swan Hill. Date: April 2012

What an amazing, enlightening experience that I had no idea existed prior to this weekend. I now have an understanding of myself, my emotions, experiences and fears.

I will continue to practice the skills I have learnt and never let myself become the person I was. With each session I grew in myself and was totally blown away with the techniques used to deal with the emotions and issues I had been hiding and been unable to deal with.


Name: Mark Dungey, ACT. Seminar Date: April 2012

This was such a gentle, caring way to explore deeply into my emotions and moving emotional blockages. I appreciate it so much that I was able to identify and move some blockages that have been holding me back. Thank you. I have learnt to access my anger and sadness more deeply and know I will be more open to access and express my anger in the future. I understand and feel my emotions more deeply and I have become less scared of doing that.


Name: Les Manning M.D., Brisbane. Seminar Date: April 2012

This is the best opportunity to explore and open your inner self, and to separate your mind and brain from your heart. The seminar teaches you and gives you the tools to really tap into your heart and clear out all the rubbish and spider webs of the past. I have accepted and recognised my fear of opening my heart to a new relationship.


Name: Katie Alexander, Gippsland. Seminar Date: April 2012

I have gained not only achieving my intention I set out at the beginning, I have come away with another booster shot for my life, living my life passionately. Thank you for allowing me the chance to give myself permission to shine. I have more motivation to feel into my emotions and feeling often and deeply, not just when I think I need to.

I now have daily, hourly practices of feeling into my body and the emotions underneath.




Name: Liz Elphick, Darwin. Seminar Date: April 2012

Passionately Alive taught me a new way of “doing life”. I learnt it is safe to open my heart to emotions and it won’t kill me. I now feel safe to experience emotions and not have to put a wall around my heart. I can fully engage with life. I’ve realized I’m not an emotional void! I plan on having more fun! As long as I keep doing the work I expect all my relationships to change for the better.


Name: Colleen Fitzgerald, Brisbane. Seminar Date: April 2012

This has opened my heart to so many things that certainly are so life changing. Unless you go and attend the PA you would miss a life changing experience. It is wonderful, what can happen when you put your heart into this. I have learnt to drop my thoughts and to accept things which are not easy to understand. I did not realise my heart was not fully open until now. I open my heart, the first step to loving relationships.

A little background…

There is mounting evidence to suggest that our feelings play a major role in our level of success, harmonious relationships, health and happiness. When the heart and mind function in synchronization we feel at peace, perform at our peak, relate to others in a meaningful way and experience better health and well being.

The Passionately Alive workshop has been running for 16 years now. The Passionately Alive Seminar helps people to put the past to rest and move forward. It gives them a greater self understanding and hence greater self assurance, creativity and positive outlook on life.

It teaches skills for improving self image, relationships, health and enthusiasm for life. These skills are not taught in school and we suffer unnecessarily because we do not know how to cope with life. The skills are simple and easily learnt and will show you another dimension to your life.
