Here’s what people have had to say about John’s presentations:

They (the other IONS chapters) told us you were great so we had to have you speak to us, but your presentation was even better than we expected!  ~Gloria Hill, Coordinator of IONS, Austin, TX

As the Events and Education coordinator for Unity of Dallas (Church), I was blessed to be introduced to John Smotherman.  He gave me a copy of his book and submitted an application for presenting his workshop: Raising Consciousness, Improving Life.  After reading John’s book, reviewing his application and chatting over the phone with him, it was quite apparent that the quality of John’s presentation was such that he had to be included on our summer agenda!  I personally attended the 4 week class and can attest to the fact that the information, meditation support and the lively discussion that we experienced was most useful, practical and beneficial.  Our congregants enjoyed not only the class, but John himself.  His presentation style was accessible and loving.  He presented this valuable information in progressively more complex “bites” each week and participants were sorry to come to the end of the four weeks.  Raising Consciousness, Improving Life, has something to meet every truth students level of study. I highly recommend inviting John Smotherman to speak at your Center.  ~Laura Sutherland, Events Coordinator, Unity Church of Dallas, TX

Incredibly insightful…has triggered many thoughts and will no doubt trigger many more.  ~Vaughan Wynne-Jones, Organizer, The Rhythm of Life

Great information and good ideas for practice that will make a difference! ~Shannon Looper, Organizer, What the Bleep Meetup, Dallas-Fort Worth

I found it to be a very valuable exploration into living at a higher lever of consciousness.  It is extremely useful to be able to assess where my own weaknesses occur and have a plan to address these gaps.  How incredibly unique to be able to apply SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely) goals to such a conceptual topic!  ~Lara Hansen

Incredibly Enlightening.  What a great way to understand how we communicate on different levels.  ~Michelle Langlois

Extremely well prepared and excellent presentation!  John took an abstract subject and made it very transparent and understandable through an intelligent use of symbolism and a touch of humor.  ~Lou

It was very helpful to me and I learned a lot.  Especially helpful was the connection/coordination of the Chakras in with the Levels of Consciousness in the discussion. ~ Darlene McPeek

I thought it was great to hear the information that John presented and the way it was delivered was remarkable. ~ Deb Brown

I really enjoyed it!  I loved the insight to the [approaches] and how they both are important but can’t be used interchangeably! I took away some pretty useful kernels of knowledge, thank you! ~Dorina Hertner

John did an awesome job explaining and presenting a complicated subject in a very fun way! ~M.L.

Well it was magical to say the least! John gave a masterful presentation that would have anyone understand the concepts of creating your reality.  He made it fun, easy, totally accessible and memorable.  Not an easy task given the material, yet his commitment shined through with love and grace.  ~L.H.

This was one of the most well thought out, well planned talks I have attended.  John has amazing insight and is wonderful at public speaking/lectures.  ~Sharyn

Great! I learned some new tools and insight.  ~Gayla Dews

This was a very beneficial learning experience about how to bring out the best parts of yourself in everyday life and how to bring the higher self closer to the everyday self.  Putting theory into practice is important,as otherwise there is a disconnect between the two.  ~P.T.

John provided us with great info and tools for identifying and shifting our energies to bring about higher  levels of consciousness.  ~Debbie

John is so clever.  He gave us some very useful and practical tools to rewire ourselves, so we respond to life with our Higher Selves.  ~Desiree

How much  higher can you fly?!  How deep can you go?  It is a fun learning process.  Transforming universal knowledge into simple conception.  Thank you John for putting it all together for us.  ~Zuila McKinley
