INOWT for Anxiety Disorders a testimonial by Maggie Tate
"I came into my first INOWT workshop hoping that it would be a fit for me. Having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, I have found being still and quiet was difficult and I have never achieved much with different kinds of meditation. Having had previous courses of cognitive behavioural therapy as well as year of medication for anxiety, I learned to get through life but always wondered if I would ever reach a point where the panic would go away.
The self-helaing aspect of INOWT brought about a major shift in the way that I experience and react to anxiety. Allowing my mind to explore what came forth was amazingly freeing. I came out of that first workshop knowing that I had found the core of my panic attacks. During my process, I spontaneously recalled an important memory which I immediately recognized as the beginning of my emotional disorder. I observed the feeling of panic in the memory, and understood why I continued to feel that anxiety as I grew up. The neat thing about this experience is that I did not expect to uncover that memory and I did not realize what an emotional impact it had on me. By allowing my mind to follow what was in my present awareness, it led me to exactly the issue I needed and wanted to deal with, without me consciously guiding myself there!
I have learned to embrace the anxiety and understand why I am feeling it rather than trying to fight it. INOWT has given me the ability to work with aspects of myself that I was judging and avoiding. I have learned that these "bad" elements, such as a panic are not bad, they just need to be understood. What has come with this is understanding and a feeling of inner strength and I no longer fear a panic attack. I have learned to embrace the anxiety and understand why I am feeling it rather than trying to fight it. I can now observe my anxiety rather than judge or push it away which allows me to understand what I need when it arises. I would not have this ability without learning INOWT. I came from a state of almost daily panic attacks to one every couple of weeks. With recognition of why I am feeling the panic, it dissolves almost immediately because I am not fighting it. In fact, I have learned to understand it as trying to protect me. I believe that as I continue to work with INOWT, I will be relieved of my anxiety, something that medication and cognitive therapy were not able to achieve for me. Finally because INOWT teaches one- or rather gives permission to listen to ones inner self, my intuition has returned! Maggie Tate - Edmonton
INOWT is different. It's a crucial tool that taught me how to look deeply into myself. Testimonial by Amanda Buda Braun -
"After many years of trying various self help techniques, programs and therapies for healing and seeking purposes, none of them really seeming to stick or getting me anywhere that felt substantial, I had the feeling that the INOWT would be very different. I was correct.
What caught my attention about it was that seemed to suggest taking me deeper into my self rather than endlessly chasing results in the outer world as though on a hamster wheel. I was also drawn to its seeming neutrality, being that there are many important people in my life of spiritual faiths I do not wish to offend, in addition due to my own need for a grounded, practical approach.. INOWT offered me everything I was seeking.
The course was a highly supportive day of learning and practicing the technique. I felt genuine shifts that day that upon leaving had me feeling as though I was finally in touch with my self. Since then I have practiced it frequently. It is easy, and I am learning how my awarenesses sometimes show up as images, feelings, sequences of understandings and knowings, key memories of incidents that I had no idea were affecting my energy to the extent they were. In whatever form, the information will show up with just a bit of attention. I have made genuine shifts, that in the end were often quite simple and at times have literally made my whole being feel lighter afterward. As well I have had some interesting relief from physical symptoms. This technique is fully worthy of the investment not only for its own sake, but also for the fact that time, effort and money spent on less fruitful ventures can now be redirected. I look forward to using this crucial tool for the rest of my life."

INOWT for Vision Conditions
I approached Summer (Natural Vision School) after two years of feeling that my left eye was not working. I was also near the point of emotional breakdown.
I grew up with a condition called Amblyopia (lazy eye) and it was reappearing in my adult life. I also had constant tension around that eye and was having trouble with reading.
Since my optometrist offered no advice except to say I was “aging,” my friend mentioned Summer to me. My friend had taken her son to see Summer and he had been greatly helped with eye tracking and migraine headaches.
Through Summer, I learned that trouble with eyesight can be a result of stress and emotional trauma, which fit the timeline both for my childhood vision troubles and the recent onset of other symptoms. She indicated her INside-OWT program would be appropriate for me and we began to work with some inner work that dealt with the trauma I had experienced alongside gentle, eye muscle training (tools and exercises).
Through her, I have learned to listen to and trust what my body and inner self have to say. I feel at home in my own body and life. My eye very quickly strengthened, and I can see with both vision fields and wear glasses less. I also wear a lower prescription that I had originally. The tension around my eye is gone. I found Summer to be knowledgeable, authentic, and so warmly compassionate and supportive as she guided me in learning to trust and listen to my inner self.
I found this to be a healing and empowering process which has influenced my view of physical symptoms and why people have them. I feel that anyone who has been recently diagnosed with vision changes, feeling emotionally fragile or experiencing other symptoms that physicians cannot explain or dismiss would do well to consult with Summer.

INOWT for Physical Pain (Earaches): a testimonial by Jo Grant
"I have spent many years with ear and throat infections that were treated with antibiotics. About to return for another dose, I mentioned it to Summer. She guided me through the INOWT process that began with the pain in my ear. As I followed that energy, I found the courage to hear a truth that I hadn't wanted to hear. I also found the courage to say what needed to be said to my Dad. The pain stopped the next day. From then on I have tried to listen extra carefully to myself. So far no more earaches!"

INOWT for Life: a letter from Cherie Strong - March 2015
"I'm writing to touch base with you. I've been feeling the time is right for me to reconnect with you and explore the INOWT once again. Of all the therapies I've experienced, my time working with you has been the most powerful, insightful and lasting. Needless to say, you and what I've learnt with you are often on my mind! Thank you so much." Cherie Strong - B.C.
INOWT for Spiritual Awareness, Anxiety and Depression
"I have attended countless leadership seminars, motivational speeches, yoga workshops and read self-help books that ranges in the multitudes in order to feel reconnected to myself, my purpose and others. The messages I received from all the previous courses and methods I studied was that to be "good enough" I needed to do this, think that, put these habits into practice, imagine that if ... Although many had profound wisdoms, I still felt that in order to feel my own worth, I was expected to change, to be a better model of what I currently was.
After the intro course in INOWT, the message of how valuable I am, being who I am right here and now an that it IS good enough was a gift I received. INOWT has given me a profound experience of spiritual reconnection and a day-to-day inner tool that helps me navigate conflict and negative emotions. So much so I was able to wean myself off of medication for depression and anxiety. As I integrate INOWT into my life, I feel less out of control and less reactive when I am experience conflict and turmoil in my life. When I have "negative" emotions I use INOWT to feel it, accept it and move through it, knowing that I will come out on the other side with a better understanding of who I am and who I want to be. I am feeling more and more empowered and this has translated into many aspects of my life including my communications with my friends and family. I am understanding and more importantly, I am more able to act on this understanding of what I need, want and desire for myself because of INOWT. S.K. - Edmonton
INOWT for Extreme Stress: A testimonial by Martin LinLove
"My IN-OWT session helped me reconnect to parts of myself, particularly my eyes, that needed healing and attention during a very stressful time. The process was easy and revealing. It was something I could take home with me and duplicate in my own space. Summer provided patience and room for me and the process. She was open and willing to let whatever happened come in its own time. It's a process that best reflects the way healing occurs naturally. A worthwhile and deeply empowering experience. I found Summer a skillful and committed guide whom I could trust." Martin LinLove - Calgary
INOWT for Depression and Burn-Out:
INOWT for Empowered Healers:
INOWT for Natural Birth Support during Medical Emergencies
INOWT for Vision Improvement &
Spontaneous Inner Child Work
I have had two amazing sessions with Summer in the quest to reduce my eyeglass prescription and the strain I felt with them. I have worn glasses since the age of 12 and my eyes seemed to be getting worse - trifocals, astigmatism etc. and I had a lot of neck tension.
Through her guided work of INside-OWT, Summer easily led me to discover some childhood experiences that triggered some eye behaviours that, I learned, can be healed with conscious awareness & eye exercises. I felt a profound energetic shift in our first session and I received pair of reduced single lens rather than bifocal or trifocal lenses to use afterward. As soon as I stopped my habit of wearing glasses for daily activities other than reading and computer work (which is what I need glasses for), I could feel how my world got so much bigger.
I began to feel comfortable in my reduced prescription lenses and 6 months after my first appointment, which was in October of 2018, my eyes began feeling tired while driving and working at the computer. Turns out my eyesight improved and my reduced lenses became too strong so I needed to reduce the prescriptions even more! I don’t need them for the computer at all anymore!
Also, during our second vision session we addressed the imbalances between my eyes. We began balancing my dominant and non-dominant eye (and therefore the sides of my body), and as we did, I distinctly felt myself stand up taller and straighter. When I went to my chiropractic appointment afterward, my chiropractor told me I did not need an adjustment !
No longer am I confined to looking through 2 small windows (bifocals) and my head is free to move. I can also now buy inexpensive fun glasses instead of the costly full prescription type.
Summer is very skilled at delving into the energetic, emotional and practical nature of eyesight. Adele Goodwin,
