"Wow, what a call! Iím glad I have a couple of hours before my next scheduled thing today, because Iím processing like crazy!
"And one of the things Iím processing is that Iíve been saying for months that I want to write you a testimonial. So here it is! Use it as is, split it into sound bites, whatever works best.
"Thank you, Rosemary, for another fantastic call!
"I originally thought I was hiring Rosemary as a business coach. It didn't take us long to move far beyond focusing only on my business to focusing on me as a whole person.
"From every session, I take away gifts and insights -- some big, and some small -- that help me understand how my life purpose is reflected in and exhibited by me as an energetic being, and that help me to create the perfect business to support that being. The shifts Iíve been able to manifest in myself and in my business since weíve been working together are nothing less than amazing.
"It's easy for me to live and work in and from my head. Rosemary helps me live and work in and from my heart. I'm a better entrepreneur -- and a better person -- for it."

About a weekend retreat in Seattle:
"I loved everything! I loved the materials/workbook, the Shamanic Journey and the Mystical Marriage Ceremony. I wish I had called all my friends and personally invited them to come.
"Thank you, Richard and Rosemary, for the gift of your wisdom, love and balanced masculine and feminine. Thank you for Being the Peace ~ you are transforming the world 'peacefully' - one individual at a time. You are both in the 'FLOW'."
Rev. Mary Tatone Seattle
Notes from a Colleague:
"Rev. Rosemary and I were both at seminary together, which means we spent more than a little time in the same places in the early 1990s. In our travels to Sancta Sophia, we both felt a strong sense of awakening with what we were learning.
"Having known Rosemary for over 15 years, I can vouch for her persistent, consistent and ponder-ful path of self-growth, which has led to her ability to bring healing through the services and arts she offers. Even before I met her, she was taking Transcendental Meditation training in Washington, D.C. Her enormous experience with meditation has helped her to become a pure channel of expression when offering her words.
"In addition Rosemary always does a beautiful job on special occasions, and I have seen her in multiple roles. When she performed friend Gerardís memorial ceremony at Key School, in Annapolis, Maryland (with her husband Richard), she was able to catalyze a sense of community and caring in the very large crowd who came to send Gerard on his way. Her ceremony for Angie and Andrewís wedding was expansive and meaningful (and she arranged for a perfect day weather-wise!). I have attended an Evening with the Other Side and Full Moon, Solstice and Equinox celebrations with Rosemary. She finds the target and is a very good facilitator and communicator, clear and detailed.
"And, as I acknowledge in my book: Revs. Richard and Rosemary Bredeson have offered me steadfast encouragement and been a motivating force for me."
