the end of The Breakthrough, my spirit is feeling clean, fresh
and soft — just the way my skin and hair feel after being
washed by a summer rain shower. The Breakthrough provides a safe
place where the
storms of my life feel free to erupt and clear out — making space
for a new view to arise."
"Breakthroughs are a vacation for my Spirit! A Breakthrough is an opportunity
to 'rend another veil or two' in order to get closer to Truth, to God,
to the Kingdom Within. It is where I can practice 'Being' and 'quiet
reflection' without interference from the routine of my life. Breakthroughs
help me deepen my life experience."

"Attending a Breakthrough is like getting your hands deep into the early
spring earth. All year, you have been immersed in life around you,
but it's not until you step out into the miracle of new life that you
sense the depth of your own connections. You'll never have another
experience like 'The Breakthrough'."

"A Breakthrough Week is just what it implies. A breakthrough to reality,
a chance to look at what is really true for you at this moment in your
life, without the distractions that usually crowd and clutter your
time and your thoughts. It is a chance to open yourself to new experiences
and meet new people who are on a similar journey of discovery in a
supportive environment. As Hafiz says, "Change rooms in your mind
for a day." Try a week! It just may change your life as well."

"The Breakthrough is an opportunity to step out of your day to day worries
and troubles and find a sense of peace you never knew existed. You
don't want the time to end. Fortunately, it doesn't have to because
you take the peace and serenity with you when you leave."
"There are few ways on the path of compassion that take one from sleep
to becoming awake in a brief five days. Joe’s Breakthrough Week,
his gentle mastery as teacher, the practice of meditation and writing—whether
you are just beginning or are seasoned in these arts—will lead
you to profound changes in your world view. I have come to treasure
The Breakthrough—the light that comes in, the surprise in that
