“We are all the same - in that what we need is some friendship, kindness, truth and gentleness. Everything we do is really trying to get that, but we are doing it in such indirect ways.

Ian's way of seeing creats a space of mutual trust and intimacy which enables you to open yourself to those present. By revealing yourself you learn that what you are is OK. You can then embrace the parts of yourself that have been left festering in hidden corners of your being, creating difficulties in your relationships, friendships, your work and creativity. By revealing yourself to others you create the space for more trust to occur, you play an active role in being responsible for the energy of the group. This process is more than just sitting silently and listening to a speaker; it is about actively being accountable for yourself and your effect on those around you. This transformative proccess allows you to feel areas of your life that were once hidden. Ian creates an atmosphere of love and respect to enable you to share your true feelings and needs and to help you resolve core issues that may be frustrating you in your everyday life.
