TESTIMONIALS

There’s something I’d like to share with you this morning.
I want you to know that through the treatments that I had with you, there was an ultimate lesson in trust for me.It undid something inside of me. I know how tight I was, how much stuff I was holding inside.

Before, I didn’t know how to let it go, how to surrender, and thanks to you and to the safe and caring space that you created for me,
I could completely surrender this, if just for a few minutes, to the mystery of life.At the end of the series of treatments, I felt carried and renewed.
I know that those moments of total surrender have thoroughly changed my life.

I see it in my daily life now, when facing the ledge of my fear regarding the cancer,when thinking about finances, when stumbling at times with the diet and the juicing,or whatever could create stress or resistance in me.
When this happens, I sit or lay down quietly and breath away those ‘knots’,
I release a thing undone, a bruise encountered, a worry or fear that has been fed.I allow life to come in deeply ….

You have softened me. I have somehow collapsed into the ocean of love.
You’ve been such a deep and powerful teacher and healer for me.
I can now let life carry me, without fear.

I am wordless to express the vastness of my gratitude towards you.

My wife and I were guests a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to formally acknowledge and commend the resort specifically for the meditation sessions and tai chi classes offered. We were very impressed by Michael Hamilton, who’s teaching and guidance is a perfect complement to the wellness/sustainability experience that Two Bunch Palms is trying to create.
Micheal ‘walks the walk’, inspiring confidence with his knowledge, experience and clarity of teaching. I was personally inspired to renew my meditation practice after attending one of his sessions.
I know that other guests who attended were equally appreciative of Michael and his teachings.
The atmosphere that you are creating through these experiences will be rewarded with recommendations and future visits.

Dear Michael,

I wanted to express my deep gratitude for your skills and compassion during my recent 3 – week stay at theHippocrates Health Institute, in West Palm Beach. While I had hoped for a fortifying experience based on the Hippocrates principals for achieving optimal health, my into expectations were far exceeded — largely due to the transformative effects of your Chi Nei Tzang sessions and the powerful Qi-Gong practice that you guided us in each morning. I hope you know that those of us who participated in your Qi-Gong class very much became like an extended family… motley morning pilgrims setting our alarm clocks every day at dawn, when your took us on a daily journey of awareness and mindfulness. How empowering to explore our energetic edges in the simplicity and beauty of the Tao, and to learn to push past our narrow perceptions of what we thought we were capable of. All of us, whether we were dealing with cancer, Parkinson’s disease, infection, fibromyalgia, injuries, surgeries, etc., discovered a strength and resilience that we had forgotten how to tap into, thanks to your encouragement, Standing….Breathing….Smiling….

Most surprising to me were the cumulative effects of the Chi Nei Tzang sessions. A type of bodywork that I was unfamiliar with, it turned out to be exactly what I needed to accelerate my recovery and I am so grateful to have experience it. Coming to Hippocrates after an extended bout of complicated pneumonia, my lung were pretty much shut down and breathing was very difficult. Multiple abdominal surgeries had left lee with scar tissue, adhesions and loss of nerve conduction in the center of my body. Toxic medications had caused an overall systemic breakdown. I pretty much felt all these areas were disconnected and broken. Your energy and sense of humor helped me to put things in perspective and to work from a positive space to reconnect the pieces. The work not only softened layers of physical stagnation by working the energy of the organs, but just as importantly, detoxified and work through the emotional tangles and stress that co-existed with these dis-eases. Additionally, the acupuncture was very powerful, especially in conjunction with Chi Nei Tzang.

Three weeks….Three profound levels of healing. Mind, Body and Spirit cooperating once again as a whole. It was a gift and truly a pleasure working with you and I cannot thank you enough.

All blessings

I feel the need to write and express how you have helped me make such a profound shift in my life.

Your restorative breathing technique together with your Chi Gong classes helped me unleash the pain and grief: loss of my two young children so long ago. I realized I had locked incomplete grief; loss internally however had no idea it had such an impact on my everyday living.

The turning point in my life occurred throats your specific breathing technique while you have incorporated into your Chi Gong and Chi Nei Tzang sessions. I cried for two days as I let go. Michael, I feel truly free for the first time to live in the present. What a glorious feeling. I now can be still.

I have been to many “breathing technique” workshops over the years, but none have come closet your technique. I truly believe there’s not a person on this earth who would not benefit from your class.

A heartfelt thank you Michael. You are a gift that has been sent to us. I feel honored to have met you .

God Bless,

Pauline Fogarty, Nova Scotia, Canada
