“After these 7 paintings,  a co-worker says she has never experienced self-development like this.  The New Adult Learning brings spirit which none of the other methods she has experienced have: therapy, Landmark programs. Pursuit of Excellence. Demartini. etc.  She says this is the breakthrough that humanity is searching for. ”   Kathleen Thompson, Edmonton,  Lionsheart Wholeness, April 2020

“I have taken the New Adult Educator facilitator’s training and bring the New Adult Learning (NAL) into my work as a Rudolf Steiner College Canada (RSCC) Foundation Studies Distance mentor and as a RSCC HEART Director and mentor, as an independent Education Consultant, and Life in the Home Coach. It is truly transformative and has totally changed how I work with the FS material for/with each student. It is also the basis in which the HEART program works with the material.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

EVERY student whom I have had the privilege of bringing various aspects of this work, has expressed how truly transformational the NAL processes are. Often, when the students finish the course, they ask about other professions/personal development courses to explore because they are so hungry for this transformational work. I certainly recommend all of the programs that are offered through NALM.  

I wish I knew about the NAL work ages ago! As I’m sure many of you may already know, the remarkable thing about New Adult Learning approach is that it can applied or woven into so many different fields of study and trainings. It is truly universal while at the same time fosters an awakening and conscious transformation of the individual, which in turn ignites clarity, warmth and enthusiasm for one’s work in the world. 

I would highly recommend to any mentor who has not explored this work to connect with the NAL.  You will not be the same nor will your work – and I mean this in a good way!    All will be invigorated and renewed.”  Marg Beard, NAE 2019/20   

“Thank you for the wonderful week together. The spiritual content was great, the company also and the environment. We could have not asked for anything more. Thank you for preparing the meals…that was an especially generous gift for all of us who cook daily and need a break from it.  Really a stellar experience in more ways than one.”  Beth Currie, Rudolf Steiner College Canada, Foundation Studies Distance Mentor, September 2021.

“This program pushes you to grow physically, mentally, emotionally on a soul level, but most importantly on a spiritual level.   Through learning how to learn for yourself and exploring yourself,  your own connection to spirit becomes more grounded and ready to work with adults in supporting learning.  This is not a schooling on ‘how to teach adults’ but rather an experience of how through your own inner development you create space for the learning and transformation of others.”   Otsistohkwiyo – Melissa Elliot  – Summer 2022
