Coming to Optimal Self-Trust I was at a point in my life where I had some serious decisions to make and a great degree of difficulty in sorting out the best choices to make for myself. Three days into the program, every issue was resolved. I emerged feeling empowered, grounded and filled with energy and love. This program enabled me to sort out some key beliefs for myself, leaving me with a joyful sense of utter happiness and absolute confidence that I will embark on the rest of my life’s wondrous journey, with Optimal Self-Trust, optimal self love, and to really take personal responsibility for all I am and all I do.

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.
