What people are saying about The House of Flow Courses

Douglas is a great teacher, he exudes a serenity which clearly has resulted from years of meditation and creative practice. His practical advice and methods have already been quite useful as a shortcut into a creative flow state and more tranquility of mind during a stressful period.

Douglas is a remarkable, responsive, open, and thoughtful teacher who is able to synthesize decades of seeking and spiritual work into a very accessible, useable, and yet deep form. These exercises and meditations can change your life….

As a novice I was surprised at how easily Douglas’s guidance made it possible for me to seek out and abate anxieties that I barely even knew I was harboring! Through Douglas’s guidance I was able to easily visualize and feel negative emotions within me and then let them flow out as creative inspiration instead!

This class was deeply nourishing for my soul. Douglas is a gifted meditation teacher, he lead me into altered states of awareness in which I was able to access hidden clutter from the past that has been distorting my ability to experience life freely. It was impressive how obvious it became that negative energy patterns get stuck in our bodies and that instead of having our demons – fear, anxiety, etc. –  control us, we can (actually pretty easily) develop an objective relationship to them, by using them as the fuel for our creative output. The process Douglas teaches brings a lot of insight and growth. To me it’s true alchemy.

The Transforming Resistance course explores an awareness of thoughts, emotions and feelings and guides them toward a release via an artistic meditative experience. It’s an interesting and fun practice which leads to a more peaceful sense of well being. I look forward to participating in more of these classes.
