2/20/19:  Announcing  a new date for Intensive Training Workshop in Gilroy on September 2nd 2019.  A Church Group booked the meeting room that I normally use, for the rest of 2019.  Since there was no other space at this motel to do my workshop, I considered just stopping doing the ones in Gilroy.  I didn't really want to do that because there are a lot of alumni in the Bay Area / Silicon Valley - and I didn't want to look for a new place.  So I decided to try offering it on a Holiday Monday, this one is scheduled for Labor Day.  So, we will see how that works. Testimonials from February workshop available on Intensive Testimonial Page.


2/14/19:  Announcing a new Update Newsletter for Joy2MeU / Joy2MeU2 /Joy to You & Me. 


"It is very sad.  It is very sad that we have had our hearts broken.  It is very sad that we have let go of getting our needs met.  It is very sad that it is so hard to connect with another being in a healthy, Loving way.  It is very sad that so many of us have had to shut down our hearts and lock the romantic part of us away in a deep dark place within us.

It is very sad - but it is truly tragic that we blame ourselves.  We have been victimized by society's dysfunctional programming and we beat up on the victim of those forces that we were powerless over. . . . 


. . . . . Make this Valentine's Day a True celebration of Love by choosing to Love and have compassion for your wounded self (own the emotional pain) at the same time you are allowing your Spiritual Self to nurture (tell your self Spiritual Truth) and protect you (tell the critical parent voice to shut up.)

Make this Valentine's Day about owning the Unconditional Love of The Universal Force for you.” - Healthy Relationships - Part 7, Valentine's Day 2000

"Hello Robert,
I hope this finds you well. You and I had a few phone sessions over a year ago. Since that time, I have stopped drinking, focused on living in abundance and have allowed the universe to guide my life. That being said, my income has doubled and is still climbing, my relationship has improved, abundance has filled my life and I find that I am much happier person. I am more confident than I've ever been and am actually excited about the future. These days, I look forward to each day and all of the possibilities that are available to me.

I was compelled to send you a gift today to express my gratitude for being such a beacon of inspiration. I am grateful for you and the gifts you have enabled me to receive and I send you joy and blessings for being a such a spiritual being.

Joy, wisdom & harmony." - in response to page I posted for my 70th birthday on July 23rd, 2018.
