This experience with Michael was not only simple, but enlightening as well.

I no longer value stress, and I am free to live, learn, and create my life each and every day.

Thank you for all your hard work Michael, I am lucky to have you as a friend!”

“The Core Health Workshop exceeded my wildest expectations.”

“The facilitators make themselves available to follow through. Repetition of the material ensures consolidation of imparted knowledge effectively.”

“Core Health has changed my outlook, my expectations from life and my role in the universe. I notice a clear change in my attitude and calmness.”

Core Health Testimonial and Heart Forgiveness Testimonial from Tim Van Atta – Feb 2011

Sarasota, Fl

Tim Van Atta

“As a child I was severely abused.

Twenty three years ago I was advised to see a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist fundamentally told me that that the child abuse was not important and that he had drugs that would make me feel better.

He said the past was not important and with his mind altering drugs, my future would be good.

After 23 years of being given stronger and stronger psychiatric medication, I became unable to care for myself. My ability to communicate with other people disappeared and gradually I went from being a self-sufficient responsible adult to a despondent, helpless individual.

Fortunately, when suicide and despair were all I had left, I met some people who realized what was happening to me. They took me first to holistic doctors who helped me stop the destructive psychiatric drugs and introduced me to Core Health.

After a few months of taking Core Health and Heart Forgiveness, coupled with numerous private Core Health sessions and the help of my new doctors, I was able to gradually reduce and then get off the habit forming, mind altering prescription drugs the psychiatrist had me addicted to.

My psychiatrists had no way of resolving child abuse. From my experience, psychiatric drugs numb the pain and eventually the dosage of the drugs has to be increased to the point where you become a helpless human being.

In my personal experience, if you are sincere about Core Health and Heart Forgiveness, the emotional and Spiritual damage that child abuse causes can be fixed.

For me, doctors always treat the symptoms. They never fix the cause. Core Health fixes the cause and releases the Spirit.”

Core Health Testimonial from Bert Carpenter

Sarasota, Florida – August, 2010

“Core Health changed the way I deal with things that are negative.”

“There are too many ways to even start describing how my new expansions – experienced in this workshop – will benefit my life.

“I had a great connection with the facilitators. Really good people – really accommodating and warm. I had no disappointments about this class – everything presented was very clear.”

“I’d like to see simultaneous Core Health classes offered in parallel so that other firefighters and police officers – who have rotating shifts – can attend these classes.”

Core Health Testimonial from Sue Martens

Naples, Florida – January, 2011

“In Core Health, Dr Ed Carlson has created a highly innovative yet simple method (past and present) of balancing human energy fields without the psycho analysing / trauma of identifying and reliving the event itself.

Michael and Alexandra Barrett are both highly trained, energetic, and compassionate people. They are enthusiastic about their role as Facilitators capable of efficiently guiding all individuals of a group to new levels of consciousness.

Although an ongoing process, the class itself has led to less stress and higher tolerance of irritating situations as well as long forgotten sensations – joy and happiness.

Incredible experience.”

Core Health Testimonial from Susan Settle

Sarasota, Florida – January, 2011

Exceptional! I loved this class.

Michael and Alexandra are an outstanding team. As Facilitators they are dedicated, genuine, hard-working and fun. Their commitment and integrity are palpable.

My blood pressure has improved dramatically and I was more relaxed through the holidays than I have been in many years. Listening to the cd’s every night at home has really helped as well.

This is an extraordinary program and I highly recommend it.

Core Health Testimonial from Barbara Brand

Sarasota, Florida – January, 2011

I recommend Core Health to everyone. I mean exactly what I just said – everyone. It is a life altering course that can help everyone live more meaningfully.

A respected friend of mine recommended Core Health; so I knew that I should probably take it. I did have expectations that I would get something valuable out of the class, but never in a million years did I think a whole new world would open up.

The first class convinced me that there was a lot more to it than just sitting in a class and learning or not learning something. After the first class I could feel a change in me that I knew was real and I wanted more. After several classes I noticed that big changes had occurred in the way that I think, in the way that I responded instead of reacting to people or events. A wonderful sense of well being came over me. Peace and contentment are my constant companions. My dreams even confirmed that I was ridding my spiritual life of millstones that I had been carrying around with me. The kicker of all this is I really didn’t consciously DO anything. Really, it worked like magic. It was all subconscious. Week after week, the removal of old thoughts, beliefs, pain, anger and pure lies from my subconscious has opened up a whole new world for me.

Because of Core Health, I know to the very root of my being that I am the sole creator of everything in my life and that everything is possible. That single understanding is the most important achievement of my life and I am at a loss for words as to how grateful I am to Dr. Ed Carlson and his creation of Core Health. Without his desire to make the world a better place for everyone, I would not be where I am and feel as I do.

Alexandra and Michael Barrett are the best. They lovingly teach, guide, and work with participants to make sure that they comprehend everything. The patience, diligence, skill and love they show to participants is evident in every class, in every word they speak. The “real” evidence for me has been the transformation of my life.

You know what, I did “buy happiness” and you can too. Take the class… change your life.

Core Health Testimonial from Sylvia Arse

Sarasota, Florida – January, 2011

Michael and Alexandra, Core Health Facilitators, are a gentle and dynamic team offering us a transformative view of Being that has always been our natural state.

Using Core Health’s unique body/mind/energy system and today’s understanding of the new physics, the many falsehoods and mechanical conditionings that have been automatically running our lives can be tested and cleared.

In the process we become more fully present and free to make conscious choices based on our own highest truth.

“How cool is this?”

As an elder and student of life, I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this pioneering approach to wholeness and look forward to making it part of my everyday life.

Core Health Testimonial from Timothyray Laber

Sarasota, Florida – January, 2011

Core Health for me is a gentle slowing. It is turning my attention to recognizing I come from the source of LOVE.

Core Health is becoming a practice of looking at myself. My attitudes. My behavior. Noticing what is right with me from any of these perspectives.

Finding community with other souls learning, growing and risking being real and vulnerable with each other. This is a major benefit for me, in participating in the Core Health Play-shop.

Core Health is about the experience of learning about acceptance. Accepting what I am, what you are and what we experience together.

Some have asked me to explain to them what I was learning in Core Health. I tried to tell them the classes are about the experience. Not about the concepts or the mental understanding through reading or memorizing some “facts”.

Core Health Workshops are about your personal experience with facing yourself. Your experience will be between you and your source. Between you and your spiritual self. Between you and Divine Love.

You now have both my invitation and encouragement to attend Core Health Workshops.

Core Health Testimonial from Vivian Bottino

Sarasota, Florida – January, 2011

Core Health is an amazing program.

I highy recommend it to all who would like to improve their mind, body and spirit. I have learned how to remove old thoughts and behavior patterns that ‘glitched’ my energy and kept me from being “free to be me”.

I am now able to change my flow of energy to be joyful, comfortable and self confident. I enjoyed Michael and Alexandra’s approach to making the class interesting, fun and exciting.

I will miss them and all the hugs from my ‘energy’ classmates.

Alice Williams – March 2011 – Sun City -Testimonial

Heart Forgiveness Workshop – May 2010

“You came to my house last May and did the heart forgiveness workshop for three of us.

At the time,  I felt that I did not get as much out of the workshop as the other two women.  It was nice but I wasn’t ecstatic.  I figured I had done a lot of work over the years, yada, yada.

However, I have only recently realized how much I got from it.

My  father was a difficult parent, feared by his children.  I realized lately that my anger at him is totally gone and I am at peace with him.

Through a friend who can communicate with those on the other side, I spoke with him and let him know that I forgave him completely.  He has been suffering much guilt and was overwhelmed that I have forgiven him.  It was very moving!

We are both at great peace now. What a gift! Thanks a bunch.”

Alice Williams
