It has been an amazing adventure here in at the Avatar Course in Columbus, Ohio!
With a team of 15, we passed out 1400 Compassion Cards to Doctors, Lawyers, Social Workers, Advocates, the Attorney General of Ohio, CPAs, the Chief Magistrate Judge, hotel workers, artists, and students. We also connected with the Ohio State Representative Tim Ryan's office in Washington DC. He recently wrote a book called "Mindful Nation" about using meditation to create a better nation. We sent him a letter, compassion cards and "What is Avatar?" brochures.
We also connected with two judges who are interested in possibly exploring using Avatar in their judicial training.
People were very moved by your Compassion Project and were very thankful and touched for the Compassion Card. Several had tears of gratitude when they did the exercise.
It feels like many seeds have been planted and are sprouting on their way to Wizards. Love,

Wholeness to me is being balanced spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically, intellectually, financially, and any other "ly" that makes me Me. "Hole-ness" (that state of feeling as though something is missing) creates an unbalanced state that literally cries for wholeness/completeness. Changing one's beliefs about the "holes" in one's life leads to wholeness. Thankfully, I decide what I believe. Thank you, Harry Palmer, and the entire EPC team for creating and holding space to realize this and for the tools to know how to operate my mind. I am forever grateful.

I would like to share how people open up with the Compassion Project. I teach the Community Services Work diploma at T.A.F. E., the largest vocational education and training provider in Australia and one of the best in the world. I give out Compassion Cards to all my students in each of my classes. We go through the Compassion Exercise together and discuss using compassion in community work.
I am both amazed and humbled how some of the students connect with the exercise. I have gotten feedback from some who are using it in their everyday lives and have even passed it on to family members who have used it also. The ripple effect has surprised and elated me. I feel honored to be in a position to pass this tool on to people. I am known with my colleagues as the compassion person and they have also connected with the exercise.
Thank you for bringing such clarity into the collective consciousness! 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 not being just another course. Instead it is a "life course" that, as 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 to the first tool she taught me, the Compassion Exercise. After excepting an invitation to a Melbourne introductory event I found all the other Masters literally in the present moment; No bell and whistles just them as their true selves. This is the point where I became really interested in what was going on. So I went along with that feeling and completed ReSurfacing and Section II of the course. I have yet to do Section III yet I know I will see you at the Wizards Course! Thank you Harry.

As I was walking through the crowded streets of Delhi in India today, I thought of you and our Avatar friends.
There is so much suffering in the world, there are a lot of children begging, people who suffer from diseases not even known in our western world anymore. I realized that I could give all my money, but nothing would change. The only possible way to fix this misery is to change mass consciousness, change our own minds away from greed to compassion. Never before have I realised that what we do is maybe the only way to save the world and I want to thank you for being part in this. You don't just change your mind with Avatar, you make the world a better place.

On the International Avatar Course we all watched your DVD "The Path To Compassion" this morning. It made it so easy for me to move from mind to heart!! I feel confident that I can stay in my heart as long as I want and travel to the mind as needed! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you,
