“The Moment of Death training made real for us the knowledge that when the moment comes, anyone can be helped to return to the clear light out of which we were born and into which we die.”
-Gad Horowitz, Ph.D., Shannon Bell, Ph.D. Toronto, Canada


“I wish to express the gratitude of the entire McCormack family for your assistance at the death of my beloved sister Julie. We were by her side, watching her struggle, not knowing how to be with her and longing for direction and some sense of peace. [the Clear Light Practitioner] graciously came to the hospital and led our family through what proved to be one of the most powerful, uplifting and peaceful experiences any of us may ever know. In my estimation the family’s strength through subsequent days has been a direct result of that experience. I’m sure you understand how inadequate the words “thank you” seem under the circumstance.”
