Selected Testimonials

David has a remarkable ability to help me drill down to the real core of what I’m experiencing, discover long-held beliefs that aren’t serving me any more, and gain the awareness and consciousness required to choose a different path than I have in the past. He does this with incredible compassion, and a fierceness that drives me to do tough work that I might otherwise be too frightened to tackle. As a result, I have shifted my attitudes and learned to change my behaviors, and in so doing have developed more balanced relationships—romantic, platonic, and professional—with the people in my life. I have found great success in asking for what I want (something I’ve had a lot of difficulty doing in the past), offering my own gifts to others in a more authentic way (something I’ve done out of fear or care-taking instead of simple generosity), and standing accountable for my failures.

Peter WestenSoftware Engineering ManagerUSA

David brings consummate skill to his coaching, including insight that comes from years of experience and training. He has the level of understanding that is required to really “get” what’s going on for the client and guide him/her to a place of understanding and healing. David gracefully and lovingly facilitates people to find their way out of their own confusion about why they are stuck or struggling, so that they get what they said they wanted to achieve. David’s style melds the challenging elements—such as accountability and integrity with the client’s stated values—with huge compassion for the client’s struggle and current experience of reality. David will unhesitatingly stand in the fire with you so that you can get what you came for.

Dan CraftLife CoachUSA

David has helped me increase my self-awareness and self-acceptance. With his help I’ve gained greater access to my own power and feelings, and this has led to a much better relationship with my wife. David models authenticity, strength and vulnerability. He brings important challenges with love, insight, and compassion, and at the same time, he encourages me to find the answers from within myself.

Life Mastery TV

Two really great and caring people—their webinars explore the emotional and stress issues that afflict so many of us nowadays—these guys are David & Tommy.
Their webinars, which anyone can register for at no cost, are insightful and help a host of folks. Not just people with serious emotional problems but others like me. I consider myself as a pretty together person and can state that watching David and Tommy has helped me a lot. We all lose our way, or our perspective on gets skewed, so we need something that nudges us back on the right track.
Watching David and Tommy discuss and elaborate on aspects of life that bother or confuse people has certainly opened my mind.
I urge you to register and watch their next webinar, at the every least you’ll find it entertaining and enlightening, and it may even give you the tools to “fix” something that’s been bothering you!

Bernard Elliott-SmithWalker Technique TherapistUK

I appreciate the opportunity to participate with your Life Mastery TV webinars. I find your approach to the discussions to be very helpful and useful with looking more deeply at the root causes of feelings, emotions and life experiences. I really appreciate all the “use it now” info and practical applications you both provide the participants. With only 30 minutes of webinar time, the discussions are truly packed with useful and truthful information and I sense your enthusiasm throughout all discussions. Both of your teaching styles are incredibly effective, and I am certainly looking forward to future webinars with you!

Eric NegherbonOwner, Carbon Lite RacingUSA

I have either watched live or watched the recordings of all the Life Mastery programs, and I find them to be thought-provoking and fun. These episodes have helped me to open up to other ways of thinking about life experiences and how we react to them. You can feel that David & Tommy are sharing from their own experiences, with understanding of what we put ourselves through and with great empathy.

Couples Clearing

My sweetheart and I were having some communication issues. I had met David at a men’s group and thought that he could help me communicate better and also be heard. David got the two of us talking and hearing each other. Within 20 minutes I had found my sweetheart again. I busted through all of the crap that had been keeping me from really seeing her.
I watched as she started seeing me again. Listening to her and finding out what she was really feeling—not just saying—was very eye-opening for me.
Now when things start to go off the rails instead of assuming she knows how I feel, I tell her and she listens. I feel much more in balance with her and I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with her.
Thanks David!

In a remarkably short time, David helped us cut to the chase in helping us express what needed to be said for our relationship to move forward. He created a safe place where we could be brave, loving, and direct with each other. Since our session with David we’ve felt closer than ever.

Kirsten S.Director, Non-ProfitUSA

My sweetheart and I were “walking on eggshells” and didn’t know how to get back on solid footing. David’s gentle but unwavering guidance helped us move through potentially volatile issues with clarity and relative comfort. Since our session with him, our relationship has been much more relaxed, and I feel a great amount of growth has taken place. We are better able to communicate, and I feel like we understand each other better. Having a calm and focused mediator allowed us to explore sensitive topics in a safe and structured framework. I would recommend David to assist anybody having trouble in this tremendously important aspect of life.

Facilitator Training

David’s SHIFT training allowed me to take my facilitation of shadow processes to the next level, and I have already incorporated elements into my work with clients.
David broke the processes down into easy-to-follow steps, and coupled this with clear explanation of the theory behind them. This supported me stepping through my fear of “not getting it right” and entering the practice sessions with more confidence.
David’s power, love and passion shone through the entire weekend, making it a safe and exciting container in which to learn about myself as well as about process facilitation.

Dan CraftLife CoachUSA

David McLeod is a gifted facilitator. During the SHIFT training he took the skills which I naturally have as a facilitator and helped me to flourish them. David was able to give me insights into the areas in which I can grow and how to incorporate new tools and techniques to assist me in being a stronger and more confident facilitator. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wishes to expand and cultivate their skills as a facilitator.

Karima IraniLMFTUSA

David brings his years of training and facilitation to a new and powerful space in the Shadow Healing and Integration work. He has an acute ability to be present with and respond to the needs of the clients and students and give immediate, clear and powerful feedback. Shadow Healing and Integration work is so valuable in this point in time, and the skills, integrity and heart with which David approaches this work make him an excellent teacher.

Diana D.AcupuncturistUSA

Each time I work with David, his questioning leads me to the heart of my struggle. With careful guidance, he walks with me into the area of pain, helps me see it with clear, fresh eyes, and guides me out the other side where the picture of my radiant self is luminous and welcoming. The godliness and beauty of my essential self is there for me to see and embrace, even if only for a moment. Each experience of this perfect self offers me the courage, insight, and vulnerability to take the next step on my journey. I honor and respect David’s skills as a facilitator.

Katherine MatozaTeacherUSA

I tremendously enjoyed going through the GROW Workshop. It created many good memories as well as enhancing my interpersonal skills. The coverage of the Guidewire core values was great. I was also introduced to many immediately applicable ideas and suggestions to engage at a higher level here at Guidewire. I am proud to count myself as a GROW Workshop alumnus.

Robert CarpenterSenior Release ManagerUSA

David is a very skilled facilitator and instantly connects with your feelings. He is able to carry people into a transformative space, where they can be simultaneously vulnerable and safe, and where they can integrate what they learn by engaging their shadows. He pursues his mission with zeal, yet is extremely compassionate toward everyone. He comes close to an ideal of a powerful, authentic man on his own journey of self-exploration, and he is committed to engaging with others, and encouraging and supporting them on their own journey.

Khalid KaziProduct ManagerUSA

I appreciated the initial processes to get everyone into their body. Then the dyads gave us a safe way to ease into trusting one another. The highlight for me was the mixed gender facilitation. It’s a great opportunity to grow your skills no matter what your level.

Brian KorekComputer ProfessionalUSA

I found the GROW workshop to be an enlightening and enriching experience that underscored for me ways in which I can better embody the core values of Integrity, Rationality and Collegiality both in my work and in my life. David’s demeanor as a teacher is welcoming and encouraging, and I found him to be very skillful at facilitating the fun and enriching activities we went through as a group. The workshop afforded me the opportunity to forge connections with many people who came from departments in the company different from my own. Had it not been for the GROW workshop, I wouldn’t have had the chance to get to know these wonderful colleagues as I did, and a lasting impact from the workshop is my ongoing connection to all of them. I feel that I gained valuable insights into how I can more effectively communicate and collaborate with my peers here at Guidewire and with others outside the sphere of work as a result of my participation in this very valuable and very fun workshop!

Magic of "I Am"

David’s Magic of I Am affirmations are a great way for me to get centered and focused each day. I love the range of where they take me and also challenge me. In addition to the affirmations, I also get a video message each week that takes me even deeper into the message and the meaning it has for me. I am so grateful for this program, because it has been a great guide into higher awareness. To top it all off, the emails and the website are so easy to get and connect through. I’m going to tell people about this site—I know they’ll love it!!

Robert EvansBusiness OwnerUSA

While I doubt it has been even two weeks since I last wrote to tell you how grateful I am for the Magic of I AM, I feel compelled to write again this morning. There have been “Spiritual Authors” that I have subscribed to in the past that get stale after a year or so, and I have found myself eventually unsubscribing. I am talking about best-selling authors here. I just want you to know that your affirmations have only come to mean more to me, and are starting to become the first piece of mail I open each day. I am not on social media, so I do not post at your site, but I really just wanted to let you know how significant your inspiration is in my life.

Robin BurtonUSA

Most of us schedule our days in advance, meeting, chores to do, some pleasant, and to be honest most of them are not fun tasks to do… 🙂
Sometimes when you wake up you need that “push”, something to give a flavor to your fast, and busy day. That is what I experienced when I was reading David’s affirmation emails, I was like “Hmm…, it feels like was written just for me”.
Whether you are spiritual, or do not believe in any of it, we are all humans and all we need that “message” that somehow seems to touch us deep down. It makes our everyday life roll smoother and easier, kind of it simply “makes sense”.
If you feel like some of what I experienced resonates with you, just give it a try, and subscribe to David’s Daily Affirmation program.
