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.
I was a prisoner of war in Indonesia and my guards were Japanese and Korean soldiers and officers. I saw and experienced a lot of terrible things. After the war I blocked my memory to make it possible to start a new life. During The Professional Course, in Willingen, my first exercise with a fellow student was with a Japanese man. Then I had to work with a Korean man and for the group demo I chose to work with the Korean group. I used the Rat List to overcome my feelings about Japanese and Korean people, and by the end of the course I had a Japanese friend, a Korean friend, two from Taiwan and two from China. The course was very clearing.
Now, at Wizards, I have used the exercises to recover my blocked memory. I can look back in a serene way and find the answers to who I was. Again I sit near Korean students, and if you were to put a soldier's hat on one of the students you would have one of my former guards. Yet I can look into that face with peace in my heart.
I've hugged a lot of oriental friends that I've gotten to know over the Avatar courses. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clear my past.

Mmmmm. It's all about attention, isn't it? Amazing. Attention out. No suffering. Attention on what I do want, manifestation of the primary. Attention out. There is no separation. Pure connection. It feels so good to be excited again. Alive and inspired. Part of a larger process that has purpose and vision. Thank you for the gift.

WOW! I came here desperate, needing to be saved; looking for my SAVIOR.
I leave here appreciating, focused, expanded and enjoying "It". I found the savior - I Am. How can one who has been in prison most of their life adequately express what it feels like to walk through the gates and be free? What must that feel like? I know now more than ever. It is me now experiencing this newness of it all. The game is over; that game of "needing a savior". I decide.

I feel so clear and so full of gratitude. A gratitude that surpasses any idea I've ever had of it. The layers of resistance are peeling away with ease...that is the power of the Pro Course tools. I feel so much more source than when I walked in seven short days ago...

I'm the kind of person who spends a lot of time in her head. When I'm driving the car, I don't talk much to the person sitting next to me; I'm in my head. When I'm at home, I speak when necessary to exchange information or make plans, but otherwise, I'm in my head.
The Pro Course has given me the tools and practice I needed to free myself from this inward focus and to shift my attention outward. I am seeing others with expanded awareness: with interest, attention and compassion. Thank you for a gift that I in turn can give to my family, my friends and to all the "strangers" I meet from this point forward.
