I love this, Elke...I love how brave you were to go, I love the work you did (both artistically and spiritually), and I love that I'm STILL unpacking everything I brought with me out of that was a game changer, for sure. Loved it and loved you. xoxo


I am so glad you pushed through fear and went.

Your light shines so brightly in these seems like it was a truly incredible time.

love, light and lots of memories! Elke, this was so, so beautiful ... there are tears in my eyes AGAIN. you captured the essence of squam! I am forever grateful that we met and can hardly wait to share more memories.

you radiate light and love!



This is so beautiful, Elke. What the dad said to his son brought me to sudden tears. I got the sense from you, after class and for the rest of the weekend, how much courage it took for you to hang in there and honor your commitment to come despite the pull to back out. You seemed truly illuminated in this space and I trust that you have some wondrous allies to work with to keep coming forward with your light. You are just so so beautiful and sacred a Woman. Thank you.

I'm so taken aback by the similarity of our recent experiences. You must hop on over to my Squam post if you haven't had a chance to read it yet! Not only did we end up having our first two classes together, but the struggle to get there, the oppressive depression weighing down. And then the magic of Squam's healing effect. And both referring to our posts as love letters to Squam! I'm so happy to have met you, and only wish we could have chatted more. Where else can someone so easily meet a kindred soul? Thank you for sharing your experience.

Much love,
~Brandi Marie


holy god woman-- more when I have had my coffee just know -- you are PURE MAGIC


I am so so so so so glad you reconnected with your spirit at squam and made SUCH love connections with people in this world who get you, who see you and who can support you with their friendship going forward-- pure magic.


Elke, I remember when you told us one late night in "Summit" that you almost didn't have the courage to come and all I kept thinking after that was "thank God she got on the plane"! Something real and special in you let you take that step and I for one am thankful that you came!! I wish you every happiness going forward Elke :) you have everything you need.

Thank you for getting on the plane.
I didn't want to, either. : )
I saw your light shining the moment I met you has illuminated the path through your dim and dark hours and is sparkling like sunset kisses on the lake.

keep on shining......


yes! yes! yes! i want to say everything everyone else said and so much more...
ahhhh, what a beautiful post. so much light radiating from your experience, from your words, from your spirit.

thank you for being there, for opening up and being brave.
