I became aware of Almine in the beginning of 2008. I read an article in which she spoke of “the Blue Star…signaling a new era of peace and purity”. I then watched some videos of Almine to get a better feel for her. She was simply a pleasure to listen to, and was struck by her sincerity. She discussed God consciousness, sacred languages, overcoming aging, divine sexuality, dynamic balance and more. What I found the most interesting was that she claimed that the Earth had already ascended in 2005. I thought to myself “Wow…she has balls!” ( i.e. Wow…that was bold.) There I was, fenced in with increasing hype about the impending doom of 2012, and here comes Almine tapping on a few shoulders as if to say “pardon me, we’ve been there and done that, lets focus on the next step, shall we?”.
I remember coming home from my first retreat. What a contrast of atmosphere. I felt like an eagle soaring…into a barrel of tar. The city environment felt thick, heavy, busy, shallow and distracting. I kept asking people to speak more softly. There was a huge jump in awareness for me, new perceptions gained, and I couldn’t go back to my daily routine-go-round, at least not in the same way.
Generally at retreats, I feel light, relaxed, stimulated and free. Any subject can be discussed – there are no taboos. People are warm, open minded, inspiring, aware and willing to listen. You meet people for the first time and yet feel like you’ve known each other forever. A soul reunion, a celebration, watching people open gift-wrapped pieces of truth, knowledge, insights, tools, emotions, laughs and miracles…a shared experience that is priceless.
Participating in a retreat is like being an instrument in a chamber orchestra, creating spontaneously by ear, a song that has never been heard until now. Almine masterfully and elegantly conducts the flow of infinite music that emerges from the class. Every-One’s unique expression played in perfect time and harmony.
Almine certainly walks the walk and has extremely valuable life experience to share. She is paving the way, showing us a more balanced and healthy way of being. She guides us to look within, in order to change what is outside. Almine empowers us to be self sovereign and to master our lives. She encourages us to express our truth and reminds us to respect, listen to and enjoy all of life.
One by one, Almine highlights and brings value to the pieces of life’s puzzle. In doing so, she renews our perspectives with deeper understanding so that we may free ourselves from those revolving lessons missed. Helping us dissipate the illusion of separatism, Almine brings us closer to experiencing our life as the One life.
In my 25+ years of truth-seeking, foraging through philosophies & religions, psychology & science, shamanism & mysticism, channelings & prophecies… Almine has been the brightest beacon of light. She is the most cutting edge, intriguing, generous, graceful, patient and nurturing teacher I’ve known.
Almine is a gateway to a vast garden of wealth. She brings forth an extraordinary amount of material, and she is a waterfall of insight that showers us with clarity and understanding. In the fields of the newly known, I harvest from the crops of perceptions gained, which fatten my belly and stretch my brain. Then I rest and digest all that’s been sown.
Though, words are mere fractions, I thank you Almine, from the bottomless of my heart.
