“John’s workshop and his delivery were brilliant. Being able to play spontaneously allowed me to be at my best creatively. It gave me the opportunity to be “present”, feel, let my ego go and unearth some amazing ideas.” – Training and Development Facilitator

“John Beale is a skilled and engaging facilitator. His PRESENT workshop gave me new confidence in myself. I was brought
back to life and discovered a more creative me. I laughed often and harder than I have in a long time. It was a very rewarding experience!” – sales executive

“It seemed as if whatever plug had fallen out inside my soul was reconnected.” – actor

“Thanks for guiding me through one of the most terrifying and exhilarating moments in my adult life. I very much appreciated your guidance during the last two days, and have certainly found some new perspectives that I would want to pursue further.”- film maker

“Thanks a bunch for your stellar workshop. I kind of feel like if I had come to a zen meditation workshop I wouldn’t have made nearly the progress towards accepting the present moment as I did with you and the crew. I think i might have a closer understanding of what the Taoist mean by “non-doing” now. Thanks!” – actor

“What a stupendous weekend! I thoroughly enjoyed the work, managing to stay pretty loose (vulnerable) as we leapt from one challenging task to another. I do feel I made some real headway in discovering “who I am” i.e. my essence. I surprised myself! Again, thank you for a most exhilarating experience. You’re a WONDERFUL teacher. – acting professor
