Personal Stories & Insights From Avatar Students
Here is a small fraction of the more than 500,000 letters
and insights we are receiving from our students.
Dear Harry,
 
I have always been someone who 'depended' on others, which sapped me of some, or more than some, of my creative powers—but no longer.
 
I stretched to book a ticket to Austin, Texas on my last Avatar delivery.  I spent five days playing and clearing space for me to create the next phase of my life here in the United States. I moved here from India one year ago. A decision that occurred while on an advanced Avatar Course, called Wizards.
 
I felt very sad and insecure the day after I arrived home from my trip to Austin. So I called three Avatar Masters who have become the kind of friends that I thought each human being only deserves one of, but thanks to Avatar, I have umpteen. These three soul friends, calming me with their caring attention, gave me their loving listening and heartfelt compassion, nurturing me through one of the biggest stretches of my entire life. They urged me to put my attention on others and try my best to be of service. This was very easy, because as an Avatar Master I have met many people and had many opportunities to do this. 
 
So after a weekend of celebrating others, I awoke today, refreshed and alive. My dream, at 44, is to move out on my own and live a creative life full of empowerment and this dream is now manifesting. 
 
I walk away from this 'giving' weekend and my family is aligned and excited with my dream, ready to drive the truck down to Texas as I prepare for my move. My sister wants to help me create a to-do list and do some things for me and with me. My mom can't wait to see me succeed. My brother is scouting out a car for me that is fun and efficient. My dad is bringing elements for me to start my spa practice down there. 
 
It is funny, the minute I decided that I don't need anyone and I'll do it on my own, many show up willingly, to help. 
 
I have cleared my space and my room. Money is flowing in abundantly and into my bank account it goes. As I played my music loud and threw away the old me, stuff that is no longer alive and vibrating with possibility, I realized that my path has been like Buddha's story. I came from affluence, so letting go and making it on my own was always scary to me. Now the missing piece of the puzzle is in... I'm willing to work hard and do what it takes to fulfill every dream and leave the world in a better place.
 
This is due to my will and grace. Tools that Avatar has empowered me with.
 
I hope this will inspire others to reach for the stars as I have.
 
Namasté Harry,

Dear Harry,

Thank you for taking a few moments to read a letter commending your work in making the world a better place.

For the past 8 years, our company has had the pleasure of providing transportation for those attendees coming to all of the Star's Edge Conferences held in the Orlando area. During that time, we've met many people coming to their first conference. Some are expectant and excited, others clearly not at peace with themselves. On the return trip, these same people appear peaceful, joyful and changed. We have had specific experiences when incoming passengers were rude or unkind at the airport, but took the time to apologize to us on the way home. That really underscores their change!

We appreciate and value the principles of integrity and compassion that are taught and displayed through Avatar. This is what is lacking in much of society today and your efforts to change that trend are impressive.

In 2004, when we were first approached about providing affordable transportation to Avatar conferences we didn't realize that our relationship with Avatar and Star's Edge would become so much more than that. We have seen students come, go and return, year after year. We have become warm friends with many of the Masters, keeping in touch during severe illness, traumatic life events, and in some cases their passing.

Over the years, we've met their spouses, children and grandchildren as each one begins their Avatar journey. Now, every conference held in Orlando gives us an opportunity to see the growth present in each Avatar as they apply the principles they've learned at the International, Masters, and Integrity, Pro and Wizards courses.

I would like to extend warm holiday wishes to you and Avra. Certainly, 2013 will be another year of growth and prosperity!

Kind regards–Leon A. DaCosta

Dear Harry and Avra,

People often ask me why I keep doing Avatar Courses. There are some aspects of who I was that were invisible to me before doing Avatar. Before Avatar I was full of self-importance, judgments, victim hood, dishonesty, self-deception, and my pretense. Acting through my own resistance I was attacking others and causing suffering.

Everyone wants to conquer their limitations, but may not know how. Thanks for helping me to conquer mine.

Love,

Cherry Pehar–Australia

Hi Harry,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for all the work you've done to bring Avatar to the world.

I use the tools regularly and in the 10+ years since I first took Resurfacing and all the courses up though Wizards (and two wonderful internships!), my wife and I have rebuilt our marriage, launched two highly successful sons on the world, changed careers, started a new business and I've taken up ultra-marathoning!  I'm attempting a 50 mile race on June 2!

You and Avra and many other great Trainers and Masters have my unending gratitude!

Thank you, again,

Dear Harry,

Thank you for these incredible Avatar tools! A few days ago I went for a 30 minute walk doing the exercise from ReSurfacing "Minding the Edges". I experienced true freedom for the first time. I realized and experienced being outside of a life time creation of fight or flight.

As I felt the freedom, I also felt how painfully limiting this identity was to everything. Cowering from all of life's offerings is like experiencing them through a narrow tube.

So much attention was tied up in this and I believe also supporting many other identities. That structure feels like it is collapsing. For the first time I feel like I am not afraid to be seen.

Thank you for the light you have shed onto a dark world. Along with our wonderful Sangha! Love to you and Avra,

Chuck LaChapelle- USA
