Bobbi Van, Brooklyn, NY 

"Eli and Joseph...My endless gratitude for sharing your treasures with me. Between the first group manifestation class and the last, I was able to finally remove the cellophane wrapped tightly around my heart. Quite the miracle indeed! I have lots of exciting work ahead of me. Every day is a great joy. I am back to playing and skipping every day! Mil gracias!"

Barbara G., Tampa, FL

"Since my visit with you I feel that I have changed in so many ways - I came for some help with some issues I had regarding food and since my hypnosis I have been free - a miracle. Your calm and reassuring way made it easy for me to open up with all my feelings and thoughts and that was the beginning of the changes for me. Changing a few habits, at your suggestion, helped me to change my habits around food. Thank you so much!"

Susan N., San Miguel de Allende
