KC: Why did you decide to participate in this project? Please explain.
G: I really needed a change in my life as traditional therapy was only taking me so far. I felt working with Kiki would not only give me something new and interesting but also more spiritual which is what I tend to lean towards.
KC: What were your goals or intentions for these sessions?
G: Honestly I had no goals or intentions. I just was open to spontaneous healing in whatever way it was going to go I was going to flow with it.
KC: Have your goals or intentions changed? Why or how so?
G: Well I still have no goals. My intentions however yes I am moving away from the whole psychiatric modality. I have delved deeper into the spiritual work. I intend to move geographically.
KC: If you could tell a stranger what happens in these sessions, how would you describe it?
G: In some sessions we talk and exchange ideas. In some sessions I was given specific set of tools how to work through your traumatic issues from my past which I'm extremely grateful for. I appreciated the guided meditations.
KC: At any point have you wanted to discontinue working together? If so, what kept you committed? If not, why?
G: Yes there was a point where I wanted to quit. I felt that nothing was going to change I wasn't going to change. Well I stayed committed because the other choice was just not an option, which was doing absolutely nothing... And then Kiki was just so kind and nurturing and it's TOUGHLOVE kind of way. I don't know if that explains it clearly.
KC: Ha! Yes, it does.
KC: What have been some of your greatest challenges in the months we have been working together?
G: Consistency and discipline. Staying on track with the exercises in the homework.
KC: What technique, homework assignment, or energy session stands out to you the most?
G: Oh that's easy when we went back to a childhood traumatic instance and we brought in allies to protect me.
Ninjas to be specific.
KC: What changes have you made since we have been working together that you can attribute to this project?
G: I've left the psychiatric community. I'm almost completely weaned off psychiatric medications. I completed an online course that I wanted to take. I also quit my volunteer position of six years having realized that I now deserve to be paid for my work.
KC: What impact has this experience had on the way you think about yourself and the world around you?
G: Well I'm a tough nut to crack. So what I'm about to say has nothing to do with Kiki or the work. I still do not think very highly of myself. And the world is still a very grim and scary place for me.
KC: Even when this ends, what we created will continue to do its work. Trust in the mystery and you will be where you want to be.
KC: What do you feel the value of this project is?
G: The opportunity it brings to people for healing who might not otherwise have been able to have this experience. The financial and or family constraints and so forth. The value is priceless! I received tools and techniques I didn't get in a lifetime of traditional therapy! That says a lot. Pretty much says it all. Powerful.
KC: How do you feel about the 6 month time limit?
G: I think the pace was perfect for me. The six-month timeframe perfect.
KC: How will you move forward when our time together has come to an end?
G: Sincerely making every effort to continue using the tools that Kiki has given me. I've already shared with someone else one technique that we did with the ninjas and going back to past trauma and healing it.
KC: Who would you recommend this experience to?
G: I guess I would recommend this to someone who's really ready to do the work on themselves and to be fully accountable. And when I say fully accountable I mean completely honest with themselves. I would recommend this to other people like myself Who have been traumatized, been through drug addiction ,and survived serious abuse (mental and physical).
