"Though Michael's gifts are many, and there is a broad range to his
work, one common factor in all of the sessions I have had with him is that I come away with a greater sense of movement and freedom where I had been feeling stuck, a sense of gratitude for the circumstance or situation I had just been judging, and most remarkably, the experience of lightness and laughter at what had seemed to such a hopeless problem.
In short, Michael
assists me in bringing greater awareness to the loving and blessings that are present."
