Testimonials

Mae

“Walking the Diamond Heart Path with Richard's exquisite and loving guidance was one of the most healing and empowering experiences I have had in my life. I felt Richard's deep trust in me to know myself which really helped me to connect to my inner knowing and self worth on this journey.  As a queer person, it made a significant difference to work with someone with  whom I feel safe and comfortable being my whole self. The sense of contentment, purpose, gratitude and belonging I found during my solo fast has continued to support me in living my fullest life many months later."
