blyrql,

I think, I can safely say that at least 99% of the people that attended fell the same way as Allan, Jan and I feel about it.

I'm social phobic, I do not like crowds, but all those fears went out the window. There is always the option to leave if you do not feel safe (you'd just need to let someone know, so nobody wonders what happened to you), but after the weekend started, I did not want it to end.
If you are considering attending to one, give it a try; you won't regret it. smile

Hello Bljyrql, Hello Czaesar,
Motos here. I was in Czaesar's small group, and from my perspective the transformation in him (and myself) was amazing. Echoing Jan's words, there was community, and an absolute removal of all isolation.

A realization that I arrived to, during my Santa Cruz weekend last week was,

"I am a strong caring man, in a community of strong, caring men."

I did not feel like a small child waiting to get hit, which is how I've presented when I've reverted back to the damage of my childhood. The weekend of recovery was healing, strengthening, and now I actually feel a part of a community that knows, understands, and cares. :-)

Czaesar, great to read your contributions! You're letting your strength shine through, and it's a beautiful thing to see.

All the best,

Motos (scott)

I wish I could have attended as there is nothing even close here in Oregon that can have such a profound effect on my healing.

Max10, I attended the Santa Cruz WoR from Canada. There are few resources here, but with persistence I have found greater and greater support.... tell your story and all the great people will come out of the woodwork... let go of those who can not honor you.

Bless You.
