Testimonials

I have found Cheryl's presence at the Sophia Center(s) so supportive and helpful, in addition to the depth of her spiritual sharing that is so fine. I often say to people how reflective and peaceful her prayer is when she shares it and that I find her one of the best, if not THE best, facilitators of groups that I have ever encountered. I look forward to continued collaboration for a long time to come.
After we hung up yesterday, I noticed I felt relaxed, calm, centered and OK – and there was a “yes” inside me. So I constructed an email…and sent it off!...Thanks for that session – I believe it really helped me take the next step internally.
Just wanted to thank you for the blessing that your spiritual practices rained down on me. You have such a thoughtful and peaceful way of guiding us through devotional disciplines that opens the heart and invites the gift of the Holy Spirit in… your smile and soft countenance is powerful and calming.

As I’ve been thinking about what I want to say about our time together, I fear that words will be inadequate to describe how profound the experience was for me. You held a heart-filled space for me as I went through an especially challenging time in my life….And you earned my trust and helped me feel safe…Thank you, Cheryl, for your time, your energy and your care.

You have such a gift for clarity and simplifying complex feelings and emotions. Breaking it down and offering a fresh perspective.
Laura Hoffman
You have a way of going into your quiet center and sharing that with the rest of us.
Tom
I have been reflecting on the service you created for all of us who gathered together at the Conference center last week. I just really want you to know how moving it was---you are truly gifted when it comes to creating contemplative gatherings… Thank you for lifting my soul.

One of [Cheryl’s] gifts is discernment – inviting me to notice a mood shift or my choice of words around a certain struggle. She has also encouraged me to celebrate small joys and successes along the way.
