I feel alive and willing to be an active participant in this outrageous unfolding of life. Thank you for your commitment to life, adulthood and evolution. I so appreciate your gifts and skills as you act as this midwife. This journey with you and the group has helped keep my light shining bright.
I’m so grateful I found Jonathan Gustin to mentor me. He was 100% dedicated to serving as a catalyst for my emotional, physical and spiritual growth. He inspired me, motivated me, pushed me and ultimately led to some profound shifts that have changed my life for the better. He created a unique space that allowed me to drop out of the rat race for a few hours and return to my inner stillness where I learned how powerful my intention can be when I commit wholeheartedly to a goal. It’s been an exciting discovery – and one I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life. Thank you, Jonathan, for your service!
Since joining the Jonathan’s Integral Awakening Group, I feel like I have a whole new lens with which to see the world and my own potential. The ability to change my life and create the world of my dreams no longer feels like a foggy notion, but reality. With his teachings, I’ve been able to recognize and break down the patterns that have prevented me from being my true self. My life has truly changed for the best working with Jonathan.
Jonathan’s Soul Quest and Integral Awakening process was an absolutely essential and ground-breaking tool for me in finding my Life Purpose! I began by taking the Soul Quest course and followed up with continuing my practice by participating in his weekly Integral Awakening Group for a year, and then followed that with another Soul Quest. This process opened me up to the deeper layers of myself, allowing me access to my Soul’s wise voice and opened me to my intuition more fully on a day to day basis. I follow my nose and listen more to my heart than my head these days. Bottom line: It works! I have discovered and am continuing to discover deeper and deeper layers of this mystery, thanks to Jonathan’s wise guidance and thoughtful, brilliant courses.
I’ve worked with Jonathan in a number of ways, via the Integral Awakening Group, as my therapist who helped me with a divorce, and as an Integral Mentor, helping me discover my purpose. He is the man! Excellent, heartfelt and inspiring in each of these roles. His purpose discovery work is amazing and a gift I wish for every human. IAG has been hugely catalytic in helping me integrate my spiritual, philosophical, romantic and work lives. He is indeed a “whole person midwife”. Please, give yourself the gift of working with him.
I was in the Integral Awakening Group for 2 years, went on 2 Soulquests and did private sessions with Jonathan. Before working with Jonathan, I was unhappy as a lawyer and in my life. I was searching for something more meaningful and fulfilling. Jonathan helped me clarify what was really important to me and what I wanted to give to the world. With Jonathan’s support, I left my job as a lawyer and spent time wandering. I’m now happy to have started my own business doing life and career coaching. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated Jonathan’s wisdom and knowledge - and his deep caring for his students and the world.
I have been a part of Jonathan’s Integral Awakening Group for 6 years where it continues to be a place where I am reminded and supported to be my truest self. It is a safe place to become more transparent and whole and a place where I am encouraged to find and live my purpose to its fullest. Where else could you talk about exercise, transcendence, shadow selves, and meaning in one group? Where else can you be encouraged to engage the brain, heart, soul and body so fully? Jonathan’s authority and gift as a teacher comes from exhaustive personal experience and study and a complete, heartfelt commitment to supporting all of us to grow more fully into an integral life, both for ourselves and for the world. I feel that Jonathan group is truly a wonderful blessing and touchpoint in my life. Jonathan is a teacher and a mentor in the truest sense of the word. I trust him because he speaks honestly and from the heart and because he truly want us to find our own truth. That is slowly beginning to happen for me and I thank him for modeling the way.
My years of participation in the Integral Awakening Group and private sessions with Jonathan were some of the best choices I’ve made thus far towards personal development. For me, Jonathan is a rare find, posessing extraordinary listening skills, long experience as a psychotherapist, and seasoned spiritual teacher - all accessible through his non-clinical, warm demeanor. This demeanor established a level of comfort and trust, resulting in insightful discoveries early-on that fueled my motivation for growth. Jonathan was invaluable to me in discovering my deeper self, and how to grow into and participate as a whole, fulfilled person. I now consider Jonathan a life-long friend and my personal teacher.
I was a member of the Integral Awakening Group and it was definitely worth the time and money. Jonathan is a knowledgeable guide and is genuinely experienced in helping people find their true purpose. The experience in the group continues to inform my spiritual practice, and led me to friendships that I still have today. Furthermore, it helped me discover that I wanted to seek further training as a life coach. Jonathan takes what can be a very “fluffy” subjects and makes them concrete!
I had the good fortune of spending a whole year in Jonathan’s Integral Awakening Group. Jonathan’s vision and wisdom guided us throughout the year which culminated in a Vision Quest (Soulquest) day in the wilderness. I especially appreciated Jonathan’s eclectic approach in leading our journey. My life was forever changed for the better as a result of this special year of practice - and I continue to use what I’ve learned in my everyday life.
I joined the Integral Awakening Group at a time of great transition in my life and I credit this group, and my individual sessions with Jonathan, for allowing me to sink into my new role as a mother in a more present, soulful, and meaningful way. All the parenting books in the world could not match this rich mind-body-soul experience that I received from Jonathan’s group. And, the biggest gift I received was the deeply felt knowledge that I was already living my purpose at this stage in my life. I am forever grateful.
You are truly a beautiful teacher full of grace, humility, humor, and wisdom. It was so nice to meet you and be in your presence for an extended length of time. The retreat fulfilled my expectations and then some. I consider myself truly fortunate to have blindly selected this retreat of the Timeless Dimension, and have been able to be apart of this weekend’s experiences.
