My experience at The Option Institute has been so exciting. It has helped me recognize and take a hard look at the areas in my life I’d always been ‘meaning’ to change, but never had, and understand why I’ve made the choices I’ve made. It helped me become comfortable, at peace and confident about decisions I’ve made, that prior to The Option Institute, filled me with worry and doubt. I feel refreshed, alive, and excited to face the day and everything and everyone in it! From all of my heart, thank you.
I came with an open heart and willingness to really look deeply at myself. I have had a smile on my face and in my heart all week! I had so many ‘wow’ moments whereby I came to the true realization that I am in charge of my own destiny and am able to see the world and the people in it in a new light—one of acceptance and love. I will do it to make myself feel good. I choose to live my life in a more positive way and make happiness my priority.
I had been depressed for 20 years, with only some minor relief using medications. I was at rock bottom, my marriage had broken up, and I thought and wished that my life was over. I decided to attend an Option Institute weeklong program and did four Option Process® Dialogues right before the program — my depression was already lifting. By the third day of the program when asked about my depression, I calmly exclaimed, ‘What depression!’ This has been the best week of my life.
I came to the Option Institute dragging my past and wanting someone to fix me. Each course that I have taken has helped me get in touch with a piece of myself. I am now waving my arms in the air and so happy to be alive knowing that my “fix-it kit” is right inside me! I can take this knowledge with me everywhere I go. Deep, deep gratitude to all the spectacular teachers.
