I send this with all respect to the Avatar materials, which enabled me to be in connection with Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and many other people at the recent opening of a Home for people experiencing cancer. The home was opened so they can come and share their experiences.
Following our conversation during the opening, I wrote a letter to the Queen, strenghthened by the Compassion Cards, sharing my appreciation for her involvement with the home. I included Compassion Cards in 4 different languages and shared about the Compassion Project. I regard her as a person fulfilling her task with compassion.
Through her personal advisor I received a letter from the Queen appreciating my letter and the Compassion Cards. She also sent wishes for lots of success in this work.
What a wonderful experience! Thank you!

When I first started Avatar in 2006, I was very backwards and inside out in the way I related to people. It amazes me that it is possible to restructure consciousness with the Avatar tools, but with a lot of work with the Avatar tools over time, I did just that (and still am). My presence and orientation with people has shifted in ways that are very palpable to me. I have grown tremendously with Avatar, and am thankful for the opportunity.
One quality that has come up recently is that instead of being filled with integrity issues, resistance and fear when I relate to authority figures, I can now identify with them with appreciation and compassion. It is very sweet to connect with understanding, appreciation and kindness for their skill and service.
I was working through the Forgiveness Mini-Course today, and I love the feel of the materials. It feels like you are speaking directly to me, and I am with you for every word and every idea. Just as it would be a mistake to read the materials without doing the exercises, it would also be an error to do the exercises without the reading. It carried me along into greater compassion and understanding. Your feel through the materials, the courses, and the ever present love of the network inspires me to rise into the greater purpose through Avatar. We come in as students tangled in patterns and unaware of ourselves; and for those who continue to on this path, we grow up into our broader purpose for being in this world at this time. Thank you for your leadership and extraordinary wisdom.

I just returned home from the internship at the International Avatar Course. On that one, I was having a lot of discoveries about how I had abandoned parts of myself in my childhood, so even when I was creating primaries, there was a layer of pretending—that I had to hide who I was, and create the primary from a place other than my ordinary, day-to-day self.
As I was working on that, I began to call it a "toxic waste dump," down below the surface—of shame, that I had buried below a layer of concrete, so no one could ever know.
At the end, I was working on the reality that the world, is a reflection of me. I said, "oh my God!" Because where I live in Albuquerque, there is an Air Force base, and there is a scandal because they had let this very toxic jet fuel leak out under the ground for .. decades. It has been seeping towards the water table, and it felt like it was not being handled — too much denial. (—But now, it's coming out.)
— How's that for a reflection of the military, and also, having started during the Cold War!?
Recently, I moved closer to this place — though I felt source — I was moving close to it. Interesting. Moving towards it, but also feeling good, and knowing it will be handled.
So then I had the "oh my God, this toxic waste dump — this toxic spill is such a reflection."
So that's all very amazing and interesting. But here's the clincher.
I come home from the course—having freed up all this attention on all this old, buried, "toxic" stuff in my consciousness. And, I sit down to my coffee in the local coffee shop, and what's the headline, on the front page of the Albuquerque Journal?
"New study says there's more breathing room on jet fuel spill."
We're all just _pretending_ to be separate, aren't we?

I just completed my first Integrity course and it was so amazing. I finally feel gratitude and reverence which is so humbling. I have fully awakened and have no excuses any more, it's my turn to step up and be responsible. It feels so empowering and excitingly scary! Thank you so much for bringing Avatar into the world xx

My first Wizard Course was the feeling of "coming home to be home," a home of compassion and love and growth and friendship and honesty and integrity.
With so many people from all over the world :) connected and all there to develop consciousness and to contribute to the creation of an EPC; what an amazing ''never felt before'' feeling! My life changed to the best.
You know this "love is a feeling that you feel when you feel a feeling you never felt before." I really didn't know that Love could give that wonderful feeling of compassion, connection, contribution, commitment, compagnions. And I have amazing simple exercises to handle each creation in my life, if I choose to take responsability for my life and all my creations, with the support of an incredible team.
On my first Wizard Course, 10 years ago, I promised myself to be there each year. I did it and I'll do it again :) It would be awesome to meet you too <3
It is amazing that it could actually be this way! I am totally relaxed and totally experiencing. When there are no labels and no limits the answers are there! I don't know how to express this feeling. It's magical! That's it. It is. Undefined.

Last night I met a person I had given the Compassion Card to 18 months ago. It was so touching for me to learn he had been using the Compassion Exercise frequently on his Father who is an alcoholic. He said not only had the relationship improved as his heart opened up, but also because of the Compassion practice, he was able to see the good work and efforts of his Father. He said " The man showed up at work everyday to provide for his family even when he was feeling sick."
He said he then passed the Compassion Card to his Mother and he could feel her heart open up to his Dad too.
It is so awesome for me to understand the feeling that an Avatar Master's success is not only to be measured by how many new Avatars produced. Thank you for the Compassion Exercise Harry! Thank you for sharing these tools. Thank you for being so real. Love,

Thank you! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reconnect with..well...everything! Now I am not fearing to explore; I can keep looking and enjoying the search.
I am so up for the easy approach to life. Who ever coined the phrase "life wasn't meant to be easy" had never met or studied Avatar! I will write it again, Thanks Harry!

I had some realizations at my International Avatar Course I wanted to share. This Course is well designed and delivered... 500 people in a room, and everyone being treated with respect and caring; speaking many different languages, and all working at their own speed.
I felt very well taken care of, and although I initially resisted the support, I could see how much I resist support in my life...and the Avatar Masters there were so supportive and loving.
I talk about this experience as the most loving rotor-rooter of the mind....I continued to have experiences of seeing how my mind was set up to make me right, and make it look like others were at fault; experiencing that I create it all was very upsetting, and very empowering!
The video tapes were informative and the amount of people participating around the world is very impressive.
I did not enjoy all of it, as I was deeply engaged in re-owning my beliefs, and having to confront how I had put together so many of my thinking patterns.... to keep my old identities intact.
I am very grateful for the 9 days, and for my Avatar Master, who introduced me to Avatar and who is a huge support to me in my life...with levity, grace, and a very warm, caring heart!
I have many tools and experiences to support me in continuing to reinvent my life going forward, Thank you!

I received an e-mail froman Avatar Master about this introductory teleseminar that was happening. I had my free session and from that one exercise I made the decision to go to Avatar. The first person I meet is a woman moving to the city where I live! This really came from the Source.
My experience at The International Avatar Course was tremendous. I had thought that I was already connected, but Avatar showed my how much deeper I could get into my body. The tools I now have, I constantly use to discreate feelings that have taken up residence in my body. I was able to release a lot of things that I had concerns about including my astigmatism in my left eye that is surrounded by "floaters". I am due to go to the eye doctors and we will verify it is gone.
Another thing that happened is that I came down with a cold. I did not do what I normally do but instead, I was present and did the exercises that were on tap. I had to go out and feel what personality/identity I was not acknowledging. As soon as I walked out side, I saw a smoker. That was it. It hit me like a ton of bricks, I had been a smoker back when I was a senior in high school and I had totally disowned it.
There is so much that happened that just from the experiences I have had, I am going on to the Masters, Professional and then Wizard Courses!
People have asked me why do I keep doing Avatar courses. Here is one big reason! Before Avatar I never knew aspects of who I was that
