I Trust Myself
To feel. What a gift! To let go. Another gift. Thank you! To live out my life, my struggles, my successes, my proud moments and my shameful ones, here, on The Avatar Course among these loving and compassionate people.
To witness how I trust myself, what I think about myself and how I feel about myself and how that limits me. Thank you for the ability to discreate any of these things. Last night someone was working with late into the night and it worked despite my pushing her away. Thank you! - Amy Flynn Speir- USA
We are really more than ever in gratitude and awe of your work and the mission, and of the field of grace we live in as your Qualified Masters.
Here is a sampling of some of the things people at the Science of Compassion Conference have said to us:
A person from Stanford University, formerly from a well known School for Personal Growth, "Oh, you are with the Avatar group. Everybody is saying what good work the Avatar's are doing."
Another from the University of Texas said "Oh my god, you are with Avatar. I have your Compassion Exercise poster hanging in my office. I love your work."
A Doctor attending the conferance, a translator for the Dali Lama, said " The scientists have to be really careful, because they have to be 'legitimate'. They could loose their funding. It is a really big step for them to get behind Compassion and it is also very exciting for them to start to have ways to prove the validation of it. That perspective in the world is important to the evolvement. People rely on science."
Also a local engineer attending the conference said "I am just a retired engineer, but I have always been curious about my world. I can feel that there is some wholeness that is trying to emerge and I think it is related to this work."
Everyone here is very grateful for the Compassion Project and for the cards you sent.
Sending you so much love,

It is so wonderful to experience so many big beings in little bodies on this International Avatar Course. The children are wonderful! I've been blown away watching the kid Avatar Masters working with kid Students in little bodies. I even observed one translating for another Master as they worked with their younger Sister.
I find it amazing how available you have made these materials for all consciousness whether big bodies, small bodies, all races, all religions, cultures, demographics and psychographics. I see watching the kids how simple it can be, how light, how relaxed and how uncomplicated.
And I continue to be amazed what grace there is in sitting in a corner, using the Masters tool to appreciate all, with baby eyes and feeling the room. Lots of love,

Thank you for helping me remove some of the negative labels I had given myself! On this Avatar Course I experienced the relationship between my beliefs and my reactions to others. Through the Source List and Releasing Fixed Attention exercises, I realized my negative reactions to others were actually produced by my resistance to the real negative beliefs I held about myself. What a great telief for myself and the other person! Thank you also for teaching me the value of teamwork and the ability to become a better version of me! It feels great. Thank you and much love,

I thank you for creating the tools that have helped me transform my life! After doing many other courses and not being able to walk away with any sense of personal responsibility, Avatar seriously holds its own as more than just another course. It is a life changing course that I have witnessed any age can do.
When I first came across an Avatar Master at a spirituality expo I was taken by her presence, patience and ability to be comfortable with any responses I had. The first tool she taught me was the Compassion Exercise. After excepting her invitation to an Introduction to Avatar event, I found all the other Masters there literally in the present moment; No bell and whistles just them as their true selves. This was the point where I became really interested in what was going on. I went along with that feeling and have now finished ReSurfacing and Section II. I have yet to finish Section III. Furthermore I will see you at the Wizards Course this year! Thank you 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,
