I saw shift and even transformation in the women who attended last night's workshop. It was clear to me that everyone present felt safe, engaged, validated, and empowered. I can't share with you what I know about the spaces these women move through in their daily lives, but I will tell you that some of the skills I believe they truly acquired last night may well save some of their lives. I deeply admire your conscientious weaving of key tools for personal power into an engaging, active, and safe workshop... and in only 2 hrs! I am inspired by last night's workshop. I can't tell you enough how much it means to me that some of those women embraced your messages. They are not a trusting group, and you secured their trust in moments. Truly beautiful for me to witness.

Anne was able to counsel and offer advice, helping me approach a life changing event with a different attitude. She provided examples of techniques I could use to change my thinking to a more positive direction. From my discussion with Anne, I gained a new perspective on my situation. For example, I was viewing major changes as drudgery. By the end of our conversation, she had me thinking of them as "new adventures". I began searching for the positive aspects of what I was about to face. Anne is truthful, calming, and reassuring, while she counsels and heals. I would recommend her to anyone who needs guidance and is facing difficult situations.

One of Anne's greatest strengths is how she listens. She hears you with her whole being. She senses what is at the heart of your words and her intuition guides her to ask you the questions that will help you find your own unique right answers. Anne is grounded & level headed, knowledgeable & compassionate. I have personally found her insight to be honest, empowering, and incredibly supportive.

Anne Heck is truly a healer. She is both powerful and gentle; intuitive and wise. Anne's work has left me feeling lighter in both body and mind after each session. She is a loving person who gives her all to her clients. I believe anybody would greatly benefit from working with Anne!

Thank you so much for our session. what an amazing experience! I left feeling a calm and peace that I haven't felt in quite a while. interestingly I also noticed that some pretty chronic physical pain was absent and has continued to be eased. I also found the information re: my heart chakra very helpful and have been working with that. Thank you. This is something I could do on a regular basis :)

I have benefited greatly from the Energy Clearing and Blessings provided by Anne. She sweetly and calmly entered my home and helped show me some of the negative energy patterns within myself, my family members and several areas of my home. Anne was extremely generous with her time and gentle in her nature. She put me at ease within minutes and has taught me a simple yet powerful blessing that I try and use daily. Some of the transitions have been slow. As I use the blessings more frequently and with stronger conviction, I am starting to see shifts in the energy within my household. Since I have been using the blessings, I have been blessed with more patience, awareness and an overwhelming amount of Gratitude. For the use of this blessing, I am truly indebted to Anne and her amazing work. Her deep love for others is felt through all of her work.

My last session with you was remarkable. Thank you so much. I credit you with reducing the left side pain (you went to the real source of the pain). I can also walk more easily after I get up from sitting down awhile, and that didn't happen until after my time with you. Unfortunately, I can't remember your exact words of wisdom- I should take notes next time - but I do remember the doll unraveling the black and white, and the vivid color underneath. Hugs and blessings to you! You are a gift in my life.

Sitting in Circle for me was like hearing a knock on the door and rising to answer it. When I opened the door I welcomed in a stranger, someone that looked foreign yet deeply familiar. As I sat with this stranger and she began to speak I realized I was listening to the voice of my own heart and looking into the eyes of love. A love for me and this community. What a beautiful place to sit in. Come sit and know peace.

I came to Anne's circle without any experience in a women's group or a clear idea of what I would want in one. It turned out to be the most perfect setting for me to go through a truly transformative experience. Anne is an excellent facilitator and leader, listening with an open heart and reflecting back what she hears with love and compassion. As a participant in the group, I felt more able to tap into my own power, and felt celebrated when I shared the results. In times when old patterns or self-defeating attitudes arose in me, I felt challenged to grow in a most supportive and positive way. Through sharing with other women at different stages in their lives, I learned to hold compassion for them and myself, to see similarities in our struggles, and to recognize my own strength in being able to support them. Participating in this women's circle reminded me of the value of getting to know myself, spending time in silence, and seeking connection and support.

I participated in my first Women’s Circle led by Anne Heck in spring of this year. I was very new to this experience and Anne was very clear about the parameters of the group and knowledgeable in the rituals involved in making a circle both a spiritual and therapeutic experience. She is a gentle and strong facilitator, helping to guide members to view their life challenges in different ways and to find healing and joy in the process. I was able to feel both like a member of a group observing my connection to the greater world and an honored individual with a life journey all my own. I gained a lot from this experience and plan to continue this valuable work in the future.
