Retreat Testimonials

Hawaii July 2016 

"The Paradox Process retreat was life changing! I was hesitant to go, wasn't sure what to expect but I'm so incredibly glad that I did. I was going through some major life changes - the ending of an 11 year relationship and looking for a new home, and new job- and this trip gave me peace, clarity, tools for moving forward and an amazing community of new friends to support me. Ive been on lots of retreats and tried many kinds of therapy but nothing has helped me overcome difficult times and painful emotions as well and as quickly as The Paradox Process. This is an amazing, healing process that the whole world needs." --Erin


Hawaii was focused, difficult, heart wrenching and fun. There was a sense of union at this retreat that I have yet to see in a similar setting. I came as a broken woman; filled with personal judgement and anxiety. I left with hope about the future and a conviction that having fun and trusting the universe is the answer to the life that I want. Thomas helped me and the group understand that we can analyze our emotions and tell stories to make them be explainable. But we will still react on these emotions whether we like it or not and the only way we can avoid reacting is to have a mindful way of recognizing them and working with them.

As participants we all worked together to make sure that the experience was a success and we continue to support each other. For what I think will be many months to come. I feel gratitude for having been part of this experience and I look forward to continuing to work with The Paradox Process. --Anonymous


Ibiza Spain, September 2015

“I arrived in Ibiza with a decided sense that I could not change. After three days of being with Thomas and the others I realized that there could be an elevated me. The care that Thomas had for me and others was remarkable. He taught with love, empathy and logical reasoning, and brilliantly put it all together in one consistent experience. In addition, I left this experience with the feeling of teenage love for my husband as we both attended. We were able to connect in a way that we have not before; show one another respect that we have not shown each other before.” --Karin


“I went to Ibiza feeling very blah about my life, as if I were going through the motions with no real purpose or passion. I left Ibiza, however, with feelings of great joy, clarity, and confidence. Feeling a source of energy that I hadn't felt in a really long time, if ever.  Thomas - whose powerful insight, heartfelt guidance, and illuminating (incomprehensible) intelligence-  is nothing short of mind blowing.”---Erika


“I didn't know what I wanted to do, wasn't passionate about anything or anyone, and felt dissatisfied most of the time. I left Ibiza with power: I'm excelling in a new career, I've fixed and created personal relationships, my health has improved, and I'm happy! Thomas masterfully created an elegant plan that he and the team executed flawlessly. I will be on every trip the Paradox Process offers in the future.”  --Kellene


“I have taken two life altering trips with Thomas and his Paradox Process team. From the middle of nowhere in China to the beaches of Ibiza, I can say unabashedly wherever the retreat is I will certainly be there.  Both, extraordinary and exactly what I needed at different stages of my life. There are times when we need a little help in order to move to the next stage in our journey. Thomas and his team have a seemingly infinite wisdom to meet me wherever I am in my growth and fight with me and for me to step into the next chapter of my life with the audacity and humility necessary to succeed.”  --Ted Wallach


“I went to Ibiza really unhappy (a recent breakup) and nothing was working. I came home inspired. I came back invested. It's hard to feel anything but sad when a relationship ends... after the trip I could breath again, I could connect to the human race again… thank god…and value my friends, value my family. This trip saved my life. I am grateful for Thomas' willingness to fight for me when I didn't want to or didn't know how. I am in awe of his ability to build people is just extraordinary.”   --Casey


“Thomas is a master at knowing the best and most supportive way to help you move forward. Breaking through my own self-imposed barriers, getting a clear picture of what I truly wanted (and seeing that it was possible), and getting the tools to move forward made this an incredibly valuable week. Not to mention, the location and the food (oh, the food...), were utterly phenomenal. Thank you so much Thomas, for a truly life-changing week! “ --- Stacey 


"Ibiza, Spain was my third retreat with The Paradox Process. Each trip has been a life changing experience but Ibiza was amazing. Not only was I surrounded by the majestic Mediterranean Sea but I was also honored to be apart of a fantastic group of people willing to change. Thomas M. Jones our lead in all this, left no stone unturned on this adventure. Throughly supported me (and everyone else) in facing the very behaviors I wanted to get rid of, Thomas genuinely guided us to push out the old and step into the new." --Andrea
