What People Are Saying About Tom

​"Tom's working with us was compassionate and gentle, yet profound, expansive, and life-giving. I felt a melting into love with an indescribable sense of underlying deep peace, a quieting of my constant searching, second-guessing and stress.

No words. I am in total gratitude to all."


"I have done a lot of healing over the years but I have never experienced such a big breakthrough in love as I did during that week. I actually experienced my own heart in a beautiful, pure way. I really saw myself for the first time.

Nothing was left out. It reached every corner of my heart and I resolved old wounds that I didn't even realize I was still carrying around in my heart."
