Retreat Testimonials

'I worked with Len over a number of months after he made a guest appearance in one of my Executive MBA program classes. At the time I engaged with him, I didn’t have a particular ‘problem statement’ in either my personal or professional life but was drawn to his energy and his perspective on the world that he shared with my class. It felt like he was someone I would learn from, no matter the subject material.


After a few months of meeting with Len, I was amazed at the depth of the toolbox he had provided. Len helped to guide me through challenges I didn’t know I was experiencing; both helping me to navigate through a professional transition (that was especially muddied by my colleagues and leadership) and guiding me in my own personal challenges around focus, motivation, and purpose. He taught me to ‘collapse’ my first reactions and negative emotions, reframing negative feelings toward others into empathetic understanding. He also helped me understand my more instinctive reactions and to better channel my ‘true response’ to life’s challenges and daily triggers.


Recently, in light of COVID-19 and all its side effects, I found myself digging into Len’s toolbox once more. Specifically, I have generated a daily meditation habit that quiets, centers and calms me. It has helped me to see the pandemic with a silver lining of opportunity and is a tool in both sad/angry times, and happy ones; better connecting body and mind. Len offers a lens through which all things can be viewed in a more positive, more productive, and more constructive light. The skills he teaches are meant to be practiced and perfected – not as a one-off utilization, but as a life long trait of the practitioner.'

'The last retreat was exquisite. I am a big fan of Len and his gift of being a genuinely loving human being! His deep and broad knowledge of meditation practices from across multiple spiritual domains brings a supportive space that encourages me to find comfort in choosing my path of existence. Inevitably, I always leave Len's events feeling connected, more aware of what I don’t know, and a smile on my face remembering not to take myself too seriously.'

"Recently, I participated in the 'Illusion of Loss' workshop with Len Silverston. I found the experience extremely positive and helpful. Len is a gifted and enthusiastic presenter. He is non-threatening in his approach. The subject matter focused on material designed to help folks travel through limited perceptions regarding events in their life. I found the experience a welcome affirmation on how we choose to see our world, especially in times that are challenging. I would recommend Len as an individual dedicated to strengthening the awesome beauty that is already inside of us."
