"James is my lifelong friend; I trust him absolutely. What I love about him is his heartfelt way of life. It seems the only thing more impressive than the size of his heart is the passion with which it beats."
"I've had the pleasure of attending James' workshops and groups for eight years. I'm always touched by the courage he shows in the way he can lead by being himself in such a humble and gentle way."
"James has a very special way of being a gentle, supportive guide to lead a person back to themselves. He is insightful - without judgment . I find so many universal truths in what he has to say."
