Testimonials

Thank you for these wonderful days of great change and nourishment! I have moved into this new position of SOFTNESS and I always tell myself ‘SOFT’ thinking about my liver, my skin, my whole being…Those who have seen me after the treatments say that I am ‘SOFT’ no longer ‘HARD’ and I feel it too in all my body! I know what we have co-created is real and is a huge healing boost because the process has already begun and we have worked out new accords with infinity! I feel so much happiness…So much relaxation… As soon as I realize that, my belly is pulled in and swollen with inhalations…Thanks for everything, immense gratitude and lots of love.

Rosa Anna

I take home the brilliance of these days, the serenity, the abandonment of thoughts! This morning I resumed my life in the Tonal that I went through with an unusual lightness. It always happens after a seminar, yet this time I feel my distance is stronger, while being present and efficient in the things to be done.

Thank you to the practice participants: we exchanged a strong and varied energy.

The treatments with Miles were an unexpected gift to me: a burst of energy, a strong push to put the Intent to ask for things for me!

Thanks to Miles and his dedication we have been doing things that, as the days go by, are proving to be even more powerful than it seemed at the time.

The whole workshop was very powerful and the ceremony too. Over these last weeks several times I had to say to myself: WOW it really works! I really burned something that I actually tried to solve many times.

Bianca

For 3 days, I enjoyed a set of 5 treatments mixing acupuncture, cupping, massage and healing visualizations sessions. Miles would start each session discussing, clarifying and addressing with me the behavioural drivers of my health issues in an atmosphere of benevolence, care and dedication to health and sanity.

The effects were simply incredible. I must admit it : I do not remember when was the last time I felt that clear, comfortable, fluid, almost exhilarated in my body and mind after each treatment. This heightened state of well-being even remained for the following two weeks. As I write this testimonial, I can still attest that stress and pain levels have noticeably lessened in my muscles and joints.

This has renewed my commitment to sustain and promote my daily and long-term health and energy levels. I very much look forward to the next opportunity to get online or in-person treatment with Dr Miles Reid, whom I offer my heartfelt thanks!

Isaaka Ouedraogo-Iseli

What this workshop left me, I feel, is above all the opportunity to connect with luminous beings, instead of people. Without judgment, my body feels people instead of letting the mind think about them or classify them according to their behavior or mood. With such a premise, stalking my behavior is completely changing. My body is now remembering that affection and detachment walk together, giving me the possibility to change my reactions and keep energy focused on an abstract hunt. Long time ago anger and frustration brought me to lose myself, and I’m now seeing this mind trap as it actually is. I feel I have to keep strong the connection with the left/whole body, not to lose this perception. I’m gonna keep alive the memories of ourselves looking each other into our eyes during the seminar, and the joy of that moment.

The affection for this wonderful and mysterious world will guide and support me.

Thank you infinity, Miles and thanks to all of you who attended this magical moment. May the jaguar intent be with all of us!

Emanuele

‘It was beautiful and intensely helpful. Thank you all.

What burned never came back.

Finally the wind caressed me to confirm that those thoughts were extinct.

What fire chanced doesn’t come back.

At the end of the ceremony the wind said to me: “ok , this went definitive!”

Thanks Miles and all for your INTENT.

Emanuela

Thank you for your impeccable work. It has been a delight to have you here in Switzerland among us. Hopefully this will become a habit. You left me with an optimistic mood, invigorated energy and a toned health. What can I ask more for?

Gabriel

Thank you Miles, I feel new after Lausanne. A fog and a weight has lifted.

Tomas

During those 2 days I felt deeply understood and respected in my personal rhythm. Two days later, I feel more comfortable and kind with myself. Huge! Thank you!!!

Cristina

A big THANK YOU to Miles for the Sestri Levante workshop.

For me (who had abandoned for many years and only resumed practicing in January of this year) it was a fabulous experience. Practicing in presence instead of in connection gives crazy energy.

The (many) steps that Miles proposed gave me back vitality, fluidity and self-confidence.

The relaxation and dream experiences were very very very very intense.

Thanks also to all the participants who contributed to creating a relaxed and participatory atmosphere.

A second THANK YOU to Miles for the two treatments he gave me: a physically revitalizing experience but above all that helped me to have a strong opening of my heart again.

I hope to see you soon!

Raffaele

Miles, thank you so much for all the energy you put in your treatments. So much focus and intent. It has been a long time since I haven’t had treatments with you but as always you injected a boost in my life and shook my energy. I feel more light and determined.

A big hug and a thank you.

Pier

I had such a magical time in Sestri Levante with you all. There was so much love, I was both moved and humbled. Thank you Miles for your impeccable leadership, guidance and for sharing your fascinating stories, wisdom, insights and advice. Thank you organizers and participants. I learned the importance of disrupting continuity to allow for a new trajectory. After the combined effects of treatments and workshop, I feel younger and my wife also commented that I actually look younger! Refreshed and at ease I return to my duties as Captain, husband, father and friend. With love and deepest respect to you all. May our intent be manifested!

Ross

Thank you all for the wonderful workshop.

Heartfelt thanks to Miles for his full availability and love for us and for the practice of energy passes and for his teacher Carlos Castaneda. I am truly so grateful to you

The fire ceremony was beautiful and powerful. The fire blazed for a moment and then died down to then start again strong and high as if it were burning one problem at a time, one sheet at a time . I felt like I let go of something that was holding me back. Now I feel less of the weight of my body on my pelvis and legs.

Assunta

Thank you Miles for your impeccable presence during treatments, I feel uplifted, more whole and more alive.

Looking forward to the workshop in Italy and to the (re) encounter with my fellow infinity readers. For some strange reason I had the feeling that the workshop lasted one week or one minute!

Thank you Miles and all of you for keeping the dream energy alive all the way through

Cristina

This meeting with Dr. Miles was very special. He is a character who left his mark on me and immediately touched my heart and gained my trust. I wondered what was happening to me. My ramparts fell in one fell swoop. Everything happened very quickly and I feel like I’ve been in a space-time wormhole.

Mr. Miles gave me a glimpse of other ways to approach a path to healing. There may be a glimmer at the bottom of the well that I can now see if I make an effort to keep my eyes open.

It will take me a few more days to come out of the fog and receive fully what has been given to me.

Thank you for dedicating your life to helping others, Mr. Reid, and for doing so with such kindness, sincerity and heart.

Geraldine

I find myself more unified, centered and joyful. My husband told me he sees me with another expression. I’m more connected with my work. Everything is magical.

I came back home full of gratitude despite the world’s situation.

Marika

After the treatments I experienced a sensation of weightlessness. My assemblage point had shifted and I could sense the swirling energy around me. In the following days my legs have been stiff, like I’ve been on a good hike or run. They want to stretch and gather energy.

Thank you Miles for sharing your wisdom and restoring my energy!

Ross

I am super grateful for the time with all of you, together in the same room, doing passes, dreaming and stalking. And I hope to do again one of the greatest stalkers, the jaguar!

Saso

It has been fantastic to have you here in Lausanne and share some simple moments of life with you. Thank you so much for bringing your positive energy to us!

I feel more light and comfortable in my body. I allow my shoulders to open and my neck to align with my new state of mind. I just accept being myself!

Monira

Masterful workshop. A joy to participate in. Thanks Miles for giving your all.

It’s amazing we have such a deep rapport as we don’t share the same language. It shows the power of a heart connection.

Thank you Miles for the treatment. You’re an excellent acupuncturist. I’m so glad I got a treatment with you. After your suggestions I feel I’ve a good strategy to work with my health. Whatever we call it, luck, power, timing, the workshop was very propitious for me. Was impeccably led and received. The powerful fire ceremony epitomized the power, joy and intent that we forged together.

Having been ill I intended the workshop would renew, burning what I wished to let go of has been renewing. Opportunities have come my way without a lot of structure and input from me. I seem to have entered a magical flow where I feel obstacles have been removed and my path clear and supported. Thank you Miles and the practitioners for entering into this intent.

Gammadian

I want to thank Miles for the effective massage and treatment!  I woke up today with a pleasant pain in my muscles. Miles, you’ve managed to dissolve the stiffness of my back… or maybe the stiffness of my assemblage point…

Valeria

Thanks Miles and everyone for the time and energy together. It was so beautiful to experience beyond the language.

A lustrous bunch of beings attended and shared their wonder.

I remember on fire ceremony gazing, intending to release old habits, at a moment the flames pointed at me saying “Now is your turn!”. And I felt them burning. The ego triggered trying to tell me “I want more for me!”, but the group was there helping me see everyone has its part and intent. My gratitude to everybody supporting each other for becoming stronger and more loving beings!

Ognyan

Deal all, I’m leaving Lausanne now with deep gratitude and new dreams and skills to apply for a more efficient and happy way to walk on my Path of Heart. Big thanks to all,

who organized this event. First of all to dear Miles for his priceless knowledge and kindness… The place was nice and cozy, easy to find and beautifully welcoming.

Felt great to reconnect in this way after years. Intento!

Saida

Hello, for the first time I had an experience of silent dialogue, I experienced “The Power of Silence.” In the previous seminars there was always a good translation system and everything was happening through words, the lexicon. Now, in the two days in Sestri I listened to Miles with my eyes and received so much information, it will take time to understand it all, I also talked with the body and somehow I felt that I communicated more than I myself believe. Then Miles proposed silent communication by holding hands and looking into our eyes, this was a wonderful insight and the magic circle of knowledge was closed. Even if briefly, we all flew with the lightness and splendor of magical steps, we followed our guide with confidence and enthusiasm.

We came back with happiness in our eyes and hearts, we sang in the car all the way for 700 km. We will practice lessons and will turn them into knowledge and connection with the infinite. Thanks to the practitioners who worked to organize the meeting happy to find you all on the path of the heart. See you soon!

Gaetano

The fire ceremony held in Sestri- Levante felt very powerful. My sensation was of being in a great circle of energy that kept us together… Almost suspended. When the fire went out the smoke circled the circle as a greeting…

Simona

The burning ceremony was a highlight for me too. Interestingly I’m having a similar experience with it. As if there is a filter now and the energy doesn’t feel the same, but somehow lighter and much easier to navigate from that space. Where before I’d succumb to downward spiral now the direction is up!

So many treasures to cherish and work with from just a couple of days of practicing together with intent! May we all continue to soar on the wings of our intent and impeccability! Thank you all.

Iliana

It has been a transformational experience for me in many ways! Your deep compassion opened my heart and your lightness and warmth made me feel that all things fall in place gracefully and easily. I felt such a great cleaning of my body and spirit, it’s like I got an infusion of a fresh colorful beautiful energy and let go of a stagnated dark one. I felt that all was well and I gave myself permission to be who I am. and a miracle happened on my way back home. For months now my voice was very weak and I couldn’t sing at all. When I got in my car I suddenly got an urge to sing. Despite resistance I followed the urge and in the beginning my voice sounded weak and scratchy, but some inner force was pushing me to continue. After 30 min my voice cleared up and I could sing loud and clear like years ago!! It was an amazing liberating feeling. So I sang all the way home for 2 hours! Now I am working on maintaining this new feeling and following the plan we laid out.
