I was transported into a space where my body, heart, and soul were taken on a journey

I walked into the room to experience Dr. Isaac’s meditation knowing that I would leave feeling lighter, clearer and more centered. That did not happen at all. For two hours I was transported into a space where my body, heart, and soul were taken on a journey. This journey helped me realize that once the mind has the ability to quiet itself all we are left with is the knowing that we have power within us to heal physically, emotionally and energetically. Through his process, he made me realize that we do possess limitless love and compassion for our cells, our organs, and the systems that make up our magnificent body. That two hours has forever changed me. Dr. Isaac has a very special gift and is the master who allowed that magic to happen!
