The following testimonials are from former clients and students who either worked with me in an individual capacity or were participants in a course or workshop I delivered.
"Before working with Suse in the Embodied Wholeness course I knew/felt that the purpose of my life was to be a connector with and for others, and while at times I had felt this was present in my life, at the time I met Suse I was feeling alone a lot and not using this gift as I should, which left me feeling sad and depressed. When I saw the posting for the Embodied Wholeness course, it spoke to me very strongly. It offered me hope that not only could I connect within the course, but that Suse was describing a process that would help me to learn how to share an energy space with all the group members at the same time. I was very intrigued!
Learning to share a WeSpace was like nothing I’ve experienced before. Learning to open to the shared space, open my heart so widely, experience life so much in the present, trust in the process and the others in the group, was all just amazing. The doing really does the teaching at some deep, deep level. There has very much been a shift in my perspective in that I feel more hopeful about more fully expressing my essential self. I feel very encouraged and much more visible in this pursuit, having been so supported and validated as to this really being who I am. It has helped me to understand more about myself, and what memories, emotions and behaviours have been holding me back. I have found myself feeling more hopeful,and having a greater sense of peace and life satisfaction.
Suse is a truly remarkable facilitator in this new learning. Her ability to listen so deeply and carefully and to support each of us in our journey in this joining together is so deeply masterful and genuine. She has a clear vision of this path, and her skills and experience in this work are an important and powerful contribution to this developing way of being in the world. I could not be more grateful, and I would absolutely recommend this work to others. This fundamental shift in consciousness, from I-centered to we-centered, is profound, so naturally evoking compassion, empathy, community building, peace building and the experience of unconditional love. This is how we awaken to this enlightened consciousness, to bring together our energies in this shared way that gives and receives on an ongoing basis."
"A close friend recommended the Embodied Wholeness course to me because she got so much out of it herself. When I embarked on the course with Suse I was feeling removed from my life, out of control, and like my life was not my own. I was disconnected from myself and people around me, and this was making me depressed and lonely. Throughout the 8 weeks of the course I felt able to step into my skin and start to connect to my life again.
Opening myself up to listening and being heard has been a challenging and immensely rewarding process. I have gained a sense of ownership and greater control over my own feelings in relation to my current life situation and how I will move forward from this point; an ability to better connect to others and to myself from a place of deeper understanding and compassion; and a sense of calm and acceptance of myself and life in general. I am excited about the possibilities that have opened up to me through connecting to others on a much higher level than I have experienced before. Being seen and heard in this way, and having the opportunity to truly see and hear others, has filled me with optimism and hope for the future.
I cannot recommend this course with Suse highly enough. Taking the time to stop, listen to others and be fully heard has been so incredible for me. Suse has a rare gift of making every person feel valued for exactly who they are and what they bring at any given moment, and is the perfect facilitator for this course. It has been a wonderful journey and I am so grateful for the opportunity to participate in it. I can’t wait to work with Suse again!"
"It is not easy to find the words to describe just how much I have gained from the five week extraordinary consciousness raising ‘Rising to the Evolutionary Challenge – A Call to the Connectors’ course with Suse Durcan.
Since completing this course approximately four weeks ago there have been numerous shifts for me energetically. There’s a feeling of connection…being held…seated in trust…way more deeply than I’ve ever felt before….and a genuine laughing-river-self appearing more and more….and my loving-wild-spirit does nourish her inner beauty….so my creativity flows in gentle-rhythmical-cycles…enhancing and expansive…
The Embodied Listening which Susan is so gifted in….has given me profound understandings and revolutionized the way I feel and sense the otherworld….and the gifts which extend themselves outwardly from these ways of seeing and listening to that-which-cannot-be-seen…have blossomed into flowering vines….and I am so very grateful….
It has been a significant teaching and call back to remembering these gifts which have always been there…become the connector….and dance into this evolutionary leap of consciousness….as the loving being we feel rising within…speaks us to do so….
Thank you and a million fireflies of gratitude to you Suse….you are a beautiful, gifted soul…with love…."
"Suse is one of those great healers that unexpectedly changes your life, bridging wide spanning concepts into everyday life. Deeply loving, honest, and wise, she'll take you on a journey into the heart, and then crack you wide open into love. She's a true healer, and one I am completely blessed and humbled to know. Suse has been instrumental in transforming some of my largest difficulties into a powerfully loving gift. I'm forever grateful for her presence, honesty, clarity and deep wisdom."
"I wish I had the right words to encourage anyone wanting to truly connect in a profound way to do this work with Susan. I was profoundly changed by this experience and look forward to practicing more. After a lifetime of seeking, this feels like arriving."
"I have no words really to express my feelings about the sessions I did with Suse. Except that they literally changed my life. Parts of myself became whole, I moved into a stronger place of acceptance. Somehow my body knew even when my mind wouldn't believe. Suse might be a wizard. I wouldn't be surprised. For sure she is the best listener I have ever experienced...listening and unraveling then helping you come to the deep knowing and understanding of those things which need light shed on them."
"The Embodied Wholeness course has given me confidence in myself, a deeper love for others and faith in humanity to move forward in virtuous unity. It offers a unique space in which we are guided to listen and honour authenticity which ultimately leads to leads to empowerment and deep seated healing.
It is hard to put in to words the majestic wonder and divine flow of it all. I am truly excited at this mode of connecting and feel this way of interaction will become a big part of my life. The tools I take away are invaluable, tangible and practical. Three words I would use to describe Susan as a teacher are: Accomplished, Understanding, and Visionary"
"Susan is an incredible healer, the best listener I have ever known and one of the loveliest humans you're likely to meet."
“THANK YOU for the most amazing journey of discovery and loving connection you inspire, support and facilitate! You are a true healer and such a conscious loving example of how we are meant to be in our lives. I feel so joyful and inspired to embody the whole me (without needing to try of course!) After yesterday's session I know within my whole being that we are all connected and the spiral/web of that connection is total love and joy, it's pretty awesome isn't it?? So....thank you for your loving attention and beautiful soulful connection you give" Saila Wood
"Susan is such an inspiration with this stunning work. I recently had the privilege of partaking in some sessions with this powerful modality, resulting in some profound and exciting discoveries that have awakened within me as an outcome of Susan's beautiful offering. I love her gentle, compassionate style of delivery. If you are standing on the edge and need to step off...this work will give you the courage to do so. Soul whispering comes to mind when I share my personal experience of what this amazing woman offers."
"Having just completed the 8-week Embodied Wholeness Course with Suse, I wanted to share a little of my personal experience. Suse has an amazing gift of gently guiding people through their own self-exploration. She offers suggestions and support, she listens fully and closely, and she has a remarkable way of calmly assisting you to unpack and sort through all the thoughts and feelings that have perhaps overwhelmed you when trying to go through this process alone.
Through the online course, Suse has a skilful way of creating genuine and supportive connections between a group of complete strangers, who in no time at all speak freely and listen attentively to each other, with great care and support. I’ve been amazed by, and really appreciated the deep level of connection I’ve felt to the other participants of the online course. I’ve enjoyed being part of their journey and have been so grateful for their role in my own path of deeper listening. Through this work I’ve definitely felt a greater sense of calm in my broader life, and have noticed that the deeper connections and listening that I’ve been seeing and practicing within the group setting, have translated to stronger connections in my day-to-day experience.
This work has brought me new perspectives, different understandings, and a greater sense of self, and although in the beginning I wasn’t sure if I was capable of participating in this new experience of deeper listening, I’ve now realised that we all have the innate capacity to do so. Working with Suse in both the group and individual context has been affirming, reassuring and nurturing, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who seeks to enjoy life to its fullest, and to make the most out of each day."
"Susan has a true gift for listening and a magical ability to help find your own deeper connection in our world."
