It takes a different form,
~ Mitch Albom
"I am still on my journey and currently learning how to live into my new way of showing up in the world. The best thing about this process is that at the beginning, I thought I was going to die, but the process helped me to turn away from my spouse in a constructive way, not in an angry way, but in a respectful, loving way. Carol was an encouraging, loving presence, she kept me on a positive forward path."

"The biggest opening I had, was the awareness of all the ways I had unconsciously held onto my commitment/vows, that had created an obstacle for me to be able to move forward. I felt deeply listened to and felt empowered to lead myself. Carol had a way of synthesizing my experience and gave me confidence that she could lead me through the process."

Love is all around us, reach out and embellish the moment.
Thank you for your wonderful coaching, it has made a deep difference. It shook me awake in the middle of the night and I was in bed in Power Center - saying 'I choose to be chosen AND I keep myself safe'. The Love visions we shared were so strong and alive in my energy - it was an amazing experience!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Carol Cummins is a stand out! Her presence and unflappable commitment to stand with me in the possibility of love fulfilled swept away years of sadness, discouragement and negativity around the possibility of men and relationship. Carol offered the clarity and support I needed to realize that my desire for deep and true romantic love is not silly or unrealistic - it's a noble and good expression of my deepest self. She has also coached me in transforming my relationship to the part of me that wants to surrender into resignation and despair. Doing the work with her is not always easy but it is always gratifying and transforming.

Carol’s coaching made me realize that I have been in denial of how really attractive I am, and how much power I do have. I have been constantly waiting for men to reject me, not realizing they could be rather awed by me and fearful that I can reject them. I never got their vulnerability before. I thought other women had power with men through their femininity but not me. What a healing awareness.

I am a single women who is very happy in my 50 something years of life. I spend fruitful time developing a strong spiritual foundation with attention to a healthy active lifestyle. Divorced at twenty-five, and a few less then fulfilling relationships had led me to a self-imposed long period of relationship celibacy. When I finally convinced myself to open up to a relationship with all the fun of going on line and reaching out to friends for blind set ups, I met nothing but dead ends. I really thought that I did my work and was prepared to meet that special someone.
By chance, I re-connected with Carol Cummins at a workshop and she suggested the book Calling in the One. I laughed and filed it away as something to look into later. However, it appeared a second time when another friend actually put the book into my hands. Sometimes the time is right and the cosmos align to force you into what you really need. I took the book and read the first two chapters without stopping. I was completely impressed with the balance of clear direction, to the point intuitive insights, practical exercises, and spiritual grounding. Later that week Carol called to offer personal coaching as I worked through the process. Having no experience with coaching I was skeptical. However, I had worked with Carol in the past in other capacities and really admired her intelligence and creative style. So we began our time together.
I would recommend the book to anyone, not just those seeking a special intimate partner. It is a powerful accumulation of human lifestyle wisdom with just the right amount of entertaining stories. It is paced to help the reader logically confront personal patterns, yet gentle in self-care suggestions. I spent the months of summer working through the book on a daily basis. Some days I spent more time on a particular point of reflection, other days I read through a whole chapter and completed the exercises. I let the rhythm of my personal needs dictate the flow and timing. While my personal engagement of the material was primary and very beneficial, I found my work with Carol the key to unlocking deeper meaning. I would absolutely recommend the coaching process either one-on-one or in a group.
Carol is the real deal. She does her own spiritual and relational work and can speak with experienced wisdom. I particularly appreciated how she listened deeply to what and how I expressed myself. She captured the nuance of what was said and could gift it back to me both in our conversation and in written follow up. It has created a mystical log of the work we did together. I know that at times I talked from my heart and soul and yet my mind had not yet synthesized what I verbalized. The work went very deep excavating lifelong beliefs, patterns and meaning making that was not always accurate. Having a coach to hold me though the harder points, laugh at the lighter moments, and guide me to go further was worth the stars. Carol is a master and she truly cares about each person she works with.
