Testimonial From Tania Jones
"Thanks to a tiny wee little add, placed in the lower right hand corner, on the inside back page of our local community newspaper I found Metavison.
It was 2006 when I met Christina for the first time. She kindly came and picked me up from an airstrip in Mittagong. I was a young mum from the country, with 4 children, that included a set of twins, had a family business and was working part time. I had a burning desire to help people and to find myself, the self I had been searching for since I was a 9 year old laying in her bed, heart pounding and thinking she was the only one in the entire universe that knew her thoughts.
I remember the warm hug from Christina and immediately felt at ease and strangely at home with her. From memory, the beautiful group of humans I studied with and I, were only the 3rd year to study at Metavision (Christina could confirm this). In my years at the Institute, I completed my Certificate in Holistic Counselling, my Advanced Diploma in Holistic Psychotherapy and my Certificate in Holistic Life Coaching. Most importantly though I was awakened and found the self I had been looking for. It was scarey and beautiful all at once and something I will be forever grateful for.
Through these years, I met and was taught by some amazing women and men and as a result made lifelong treasured friendships. I sat amongst women who became mentors and had such wisdom, love and care for me, that it still makes me cry with joy and appreciation. I wasn't academically gifted but I was gifted with a heart and passion to learn.
Some of my most precious memories were also made in these years. The smell of fires burning in the winter, the crisp clean Southern Highland air, the warmth of a circle of women and men all learning together, the cheese on warm bread, a cup of warm tea and nurturing conversations. The gorgeous colourful scarves and socks in the room, the pizza and talent nights shared, the sharing and caring, the study group weekends away, the tears, the laughter, the fear and the "penny dropping moments" just to name a few.
Its been 12 years since this young country mum walked through the doors of a beautifully renovated garage in the grounds of what was the Metavision Institute. I witnessed the blood sweat and tears that Christina and her amazing team made to become accredited and be what Metavision is today. It makes my eyes leak...…………..how precious and fortunate are we all to of had a Christina and a Metavision in our lives."
