“In the months since the surf retreat my life has undertaken a complete remodel. A renovation. A demolition and rebuild might be more appropriate. I found the love of my life and we are going to be married on the shores of Lake Superior almost a year to the day of that beautiful surfing adventure in Malibu. I left my job and sold my house so that I could launch my own business. But most importantly, I think, I have found a better way to live life.
Do this. Your future self is depending on it. Really.” – Julia, Minneapolis
“What I realized during this experience was that life is really all about enjoying life!!” – Tera, Santa Clarita
“The Into the Fire Surf Retreat shifted my mindset in the sense that I’m re-inspired to tackle things that I had given up on. I feel like I was able to get over that wall and I feel more equipped to deal with other barriers, both professionally and personally, that may be holding me back.” – Claudia, Pasadena
“Learn to surf? I don’t even know how to swim! Yes, I’d say I threw myself Into the Fire. Reflecting on that amazing day, I became aware of a transformation that occurred in both myself and the group. Nervous anticipation led to required participation which finally culminated in active contribution with a desire to share personal experiences for the benefit of the group. These lessons in leadership were nurtured deliberately yet gently by Gary and Karen and I was implementing them with my team Monday morning! The setting of the workshop was brilliant because I can recall the lessons learned simply by closing my eyes and visualizing the sand and the surf. Brilliant stuff! I can’t wait for the next Into the Fire Session!” – Kelvin, Vancouver
