“Scott helped me not only to accept my questions and journey, but to grow to love myself through the process. He creates a space where I can rest and sink into a depth of understanding of the world, others, and myself that I have rarely found elsewhere. He helped me bring together those things in my life that seem at odds with one another, and learn to delight in the complexities of who I am… even when it doesn’t make sense quickly.”    John, ordained minister and activist

“I want to thank you for your compassion and willingness to aid me along my journey. Your wisdom spoke volumes to my heart planting seeds I look forward to seeing grow. By talking to you I have increased my self-worth and have learned the value of not settling. You have opened my eyes to the many possibilities God as for my life by reminding me to be clear and to simply ask him.” Bob, clinical counselor

“I am so grateful to you Scott for your wise and loving support and encouragement through my spiritual direction training. I am learning how to listen deeply to another through experiencing the healing gift of your deep listening. Thank you for creating the sacred and safe space in which I can hear my heart speak and reconnect with my true and highest self. Thank you for helping me find the growing edged I didn’t even know where there, and holding a loving space for my spiritual unfolding.” Joanne, spiritual director

“Scott has a wise and gentle spirit. His keen insights into the practice of spiritual direction have helped me to feel more confident as I meet with people seeking God in this sacred space. Scott uses his own experience and training to ensure that I notice new ways to serve anyone coming to see me for spiritual direction. He nudges me forward with encouragement so that I can diligently dig deeper into any encounter, and move beyond the superficial to see where God is working and where a person is experiencing deep emotion, truly listening to the heart as well as the words of each person I meet. I recommend Scott as a spiritual director and supervisor to anyone serious about growing closer to God in this practice.” Rick, spiritual director

“Scott’s capacity for presence and acceptance makes him a teacher of love and compassion. He always challenges me to look deeper for the unfolding gift of the moment in myself and others.” Hannah, board member of a large hospital system

“Thank you for providing some solace and spiritual food when the Spirit wasn’t being felt.  You really helped me maintain a sense of spirituality, though it had neared the point of non-existence at times, and I’m grateful.  To this day I still use the term “great-fullness”, in my prayers, etc. and I’m very grateful that you were the one God brought to me in my time of need.” Alan, legal profession

“During my inspirational walk this morning, the first of its kind on a working day (thanks to your enchanted therapy) I thought of you…your kindness, friendship, and transforming therapy.”Trang, hypnotherapist

“Scott has a compasionate, caring presence that is truly healing. His skill of deep listening creates safety to be whomever I am in the moment. His inquiries and metaphors help me to see beyond my current situation or state to a space beyond, a space of possibilities. The way he reflects back to me lands in my center as true and meaningful. He holds the energy in a positive way for me to rise to be a better me. I am truly blessed and grateful to have Scott Quinn in my life.

“I really appreciated your program, as usual. There is such care and thought put into your presentations, such deliberate intentions. As a trainer, I appreciate the prep and flow, but as a participant, I can relax and enjoy the process.

“The support and compassion and nonjudgmental kindness are a consistent relief and reminder to slow down and maintain my mindful focus on my utmost goal of always providing the best care I possibly can to my patients and maintain balance in my life in order to do so. This program has truly assisted me in so many ways in my personal life to help me create priority, perspective, self-care as a standard practice of my everyday. I am a more mindful, calm, gentler person when I am able to be reminded by this program and Scott to take a step back, stay mindful and nonjudgmental.” Sabrina, social worker

“Our photography class has become a constant memory and has changed the way I view the world.” Kim, photographer

“The class was really good for me and I wish I had participated in such a group when I was going through treatment–it would have been such a welcome relief to be in fellowship with others who ‘get it’.  Your leadership and calm spirit were a big part of what I enjoyed so much about the class and I wanted you to know that.”         Linda, Licensed Professional Counselor and cancer survivor

“You don’t know how much you have affected my emotions and brought me back to myself with these small tips you shared in this lecture. I am very thankful to you for showing me the light which is helping me to see the other side of a dark cave…I just needed someone like you to show me my path back and a little push to go back to my real life and enjoy it like I used to. Thank you again for letting me share this with you. This lecture has changed my life, and I am awake and I can see lots with the same eyes and mind. Thank you again, I appreciate you a lot.”            Nelofar, hospital case manager

Many times I discuss that day’s topic with my husband, and even though we are close, it never fails to bring us closer – teaching us more about ourselves.” Patricia, administrative assistant

"Scott helped me to salvage my relationship with God after a very, very bad church experience. I had given up on God and I thought he had also given up on me. Scott helped me to see that my experiences were with other people and not with God. He has a heart and mind that continually seek truth and enlightenment. I consider myself so very blessed to know Scott." Tom, project manager

“As a social worker, my days are spent with people experiencing physical, mental, emotional challenges and opening myself to share that burden and empower people to overcome those challenges. [Scott’s classes] help me to refill my cup with the capacity to continue in my work. I have time to breathe, reflect, and check in with myself, which I don’t always do on my own.”
