appreciations

I love working with people interested and engaged in their awakening in wholeness and continuing unfoldment and integration. It is a sacred heartfelt connection for me and an honour to be included in each person’s process.
-Rod Taylor

“Rod has a style that’s as full of ease as it is of insight. If you truly want to examine your emerging Being I’ve met no one more skilled in helping facilitate that. It’s an honor to get to bear witness to these transformations in mutuality. Having the space to unfold in a two day workshop comes highly recommended.
-Jens Eventyr, Olympia, Washington

“I’ve had the privilege of experiencing Rod in a one-on-one setting as well as in a group workshop. I found him kind, steady, and highly perceptive. The insight I gained in my session with him was a very pivotal one. Even though I already had a stabilized realization of embodied consciousness, this insight dropped me even deeper into the core of my unique Being. Rod has a highly refined articulation of the subtle and paradoxical nature of this human journey, and gives very attuned and personalized responses to each student. Although Rod had carefully prepared material for the workshop, the overall experience was of effortless, spacious flow filled with rich, coherent, and transformative nuggets of deeply-lived wisdom. I recommend Rod as a very skilled and effective teacher of the embodied consciousness awakening process.”
-Margit Bantowsky, Olympia, Washington

“Rod Taylor’s recent weekend workshop called Heart and Relationship in Whole Being Awakening was a wonderful gift to myself. His clarity, presence and loving heart engaged me and my community in a powerful way. From the start Rod’s ease of Being was an open invitation for us to bring our most authentic selves into the room. Over and over, I saw people relax and transform under his loving gaze and through his remarkable capacity for attunement. Yet his style is deceptively subtle. Find an opportunity to attend a workshop or engage in private sessions with this humble heartful man.”
-Joanne Lee, Olympia, Washington

“Personally, I found Rod to be a brilliant teacher of WDM [Waking Down in Mutuality]. His ability to articulate with great discrimination, clarity and passion the teachings and value of WDM is second to none in my experience. He’s also a powerful teacher, although his calm and evenly spoken persona doesn’t give a hint of the intense joy of Being he can invite even a large group of people into remarkably quickly . . . . Mind blowing and Heart opening. Thank you Rod!”
-Chris Stewart, Melbourne, Australia

“Hi Rod, I wanted to thank you from the whole of my heart for coming to Atlanta this year for a weekend workshop. During your workshop my whole being was infused with a deep sense of peacefulness and stillness that stayed with me for a long time.”
-Amy, Atlanta, Georgia

“Rod is a very committed spiritual teacher. I profoundly feel his attention to detail and comprehensiveness in our work together. He leaves no stone unturned and what a revelation for me in my life. I am very grateful to have him as a teacher, not only is he a powerful and transforming presence, he is also extremely articulate and skillful for the benefit of my growth and well being. I wholeheartedly recommend him as an emerging and leading edge of Dharma teaching.”
-William Miller, MSW LCSW, Social Worker, Leonia, New Jersey

“Rod Taylor has been my teacher for the past year. He hears what I am saying and reflects it back to me in such a way that I can see the beauty of what I am experiencing. After an hour on the phone with him I remember more of the wholeness of who I am and have a greater context in which to hold my broken places. Rod also has amazing insights to share and is very eloquent in describing the awakening process — greenlighting, the core wound, etc.– in such a way that I understand on a cellular level what he is explaining. It is a true pleasure to work with Rod — to feel seen, heard, and held in the most sacred embrace I have experienced.”
-Geri Portnoy, Anusara Yoga Teacher, San Diego, CA

“What struck me when I met Rod the first time was his easy access to a state of Being that is Aware and deeply Conscious, and he is able to communicate that State with flawless clarity. Now as his student, that first impression remains. I am the recipient of his deep listening and intense commitment to full unfoldment. The way Rod ‘gets’ me leaves me at awe, and the wisdom –gems-he transmits is my source of nourishment and continuous healing. He is here available, completely present, supporting me each baby step of the way.”
-Marilyn Kush, Portland, Oregon

“Rod is a true teacher. Gifted with a tremendous capacity to love and to accept and to understand others as they are. About three months after I started working with him, he “greenlighted” me through a personal crisis which eventually elicited my Second Birth (embodied conscious awakening). Ever since, he helps me to evolve further in my Second Life, not uncommonly by sharing some of his own rich experiences and insights with me. I feel encouraged to find my own path and guided in my ongoing realization of who I am. Meeting him made an incredible difference in my life.”
-Andrea Bruecks, M.D., Calgary, Alberta

“If you are interested in embodying your own authentic, both fully human and deeply divine presence with integrity and sensitivity, I heartily encourage you to find a way to spend real time benefiting from the personal presence, transmission, and teaching help of Rod Taylor. Rod has a knack for getting to the simple essences and for deeply listening to and finding ways to communicate those essences to each person as a totally unique individual. His understanding is superb, his awakened nature is deeply realized, and he is as kind as he is wise. Don’t miss an opportunity to spend serious time with him, individually and in workshops and sittings.”
