I can't say enough about my recent experience with Jon Terrell at the Shalom Retreat. Under Jon's professional, loving, and patient guidance I was finally able to tap into painful emotions that I'd been unable to reach in 27 years of psychotherapy.
Previous to the Shalom Retreat, I was unable to properly breathe. As long as I could remember, I had been holding my breath. Every time I stopped to pay attention, I realized that I wasn't breathing. Taking a deep breath was even more difficult, because the breath actually stopped painfully at my mid-section, making it impossible for me to take a full, deep breath.
In the course of my session with Jon, during which he constructed a safe and nurturing environment, I was able to let go of deep and unhealthy emotions; in fact, they came pouring out of me. From that moment on, I have been able to breathe deeply without pain. I find that I breathe normally throughout my day. There is a physical feeling of openness inside of me that I have never known.
I have a real sense of freedom and wholeness that I thought was impossible for me to experience at the age of 52. I will be forever grateful to Jon Terrell.

The chains that prevented me from moving forward and seeking those things that bring me joy have been broken. I am more confident, and am ready to move on with my life.

I feel more grounded than I ever have in how clearly I see the situation now which gives me some peace and HOPE.
Thanks again Jon for everything, I had been meditating, praying, reading for months trying to ground myself and get my empowerment back, but I just couldn't do it on my own. I appreciate your help!
