  • The training sessions have helped to provide clarity. The goal setting section particularly helped me align my seemingly divergent passion into one.

  • I have just found out about Eden. Nevertheless, the training sessions imparted me and taught me a lot. I have received wisdom for personal and professional excellence.

  • I am at Eden for the first time and Eden is truly a place of refreshing and reawakening. I have clear direction(s) now for things I have left pending for a long while. I have (in these few days) built confidence in walking in purpose.

  • Eden has opened my eyes to understand that there is always more to do. Strive for more and even depend on God and the person of the Holy Spirit.
    My biggest take home is to write the vision down. Not only writing it down, but process of organization & keep repeating it and make it plain for me to run with. I am going back to do more, dream more and achieve more.

  • I have thoroughly enjoyed attending Eden events over the years. The sessions and retreat in general have been life changing. It gave me so much clarity and a road map to move forward.
