Testimonials and stories of Impact

I am just a lot better off and 2 weeks after the retreat I stopped using my cane. I’m doing the meditations every day and sticking with it.

If it weren’t for Give to Give I don’t even know if I’d be alive today. I reached out to Give to Give, attended a retreat and I was able to let go of a lot of negative beliefs.

I never felt comfortable in my own skin but I learned we can tell ourselves a new story. At Dr Joe’s retreat, I learned how to meditate and began to perceive my challenging experiences from a place of gratitude and I felt immense peace.

I want to talk about how big the turnout was for the first NCS training in our community. We were all there to heal and being present for the NCS training was like being at the event and feeling this, it was very powerful. I’m profoundly grateful to Give To Give for not only this opportunity but for everyone’s lives that they touch with every opportunity that they provide to people who don’t get a chance to experience events like this.

Thank you so much! Words can’t even describe the gratitude, happiness, love, and compassion I feel. Prior to this, I was in so much pain, stressed, depressed and riddled with anxiety. You guys are so awesome, and you have done so much for me. I had an amazing advanced retreat in Cancun, and it hasn’t stopped. I still haven’t missed a meditation! I’ve created so much since I’ve been home, and it’s amazing.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn walking meditations, my peers and I meditate and even though we don't have the audio, we walk with that frequency of being the people we want to be, we walk as if we were on the street shopping and eating what we miss, we walk as if we were with our families.

Today is August 24, 2023, Day three of the training. I am so relaxed after just listening to the last meditation. It’s very strange what happened in my brain; it’s as if I were in a movie where you get hypnotized and wake up to another life that’s positive. The truth is that I didn’t think that existed, and I now see everything differently.

I would like say thank you guys so much. I appreciate that you came here and took the time to invest in us, but most of all to believe in us. A lot of us make mistakes in life and unfortunately have to go through this but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to change and do good. We just never knew how. Thanks to you guys we have the tools now, though it won’t be easy, the seed is planted.

I have struggled to find the words to express the gratitude I feel for the grant Give to Give provided me. I had given up hope that I might find a solution to the many medical conditions that had plagued me for the last 20 years. My week at Dr. Joe Dispenza’s retreat in Cancun was transformational. Thanks to the teachings and meditations I participated in, I finally discovered inner peace and a new me

I want you to know that it was truly amazing since I was able to perfectly understand the objective of a walking meditation, which is to change my thoughts and recondition my body to a new me. Walk as if you were already that person. And if we all change that frequency and walk towards a better world we will experience the change from the inside out. To become that person living in peace with our own self and to be part of the world we all want to live in; a world in peace.
