Testimonials

She makes these trips so special and I appreciate her so much more than I can say.

Going to Brazil was a rewarding experience for me in many ways. Being my age, 22, at the time I was in Brazil, I am in a time of searching and a great deal of uncertainty. I also had many health problems that I desperately needed help with. In my experience John of God and everyone/everything at the Casa gave me what I needed most: love, hope, a long breath, and making me a better version of myself. Everyone will experience something different, but you can make what you want from this adventure and so much more…Barbara Rose is an excellent guide. She is patient, loving and knowledgeable about the Casa and the rules. She knows how to communicate with the people in Abadiania and the people in her group which is very helpful. I want to say thank you to Barbara Rose for her guidance, light, energy and love. She makes these trips so special and I appreciate her so much more than I can say.

Very caring and responsive to our needs.

Barbara Rose put together a group of people who got along really well with each other. She made us comfortable even before we left on our trip by providing us with many resources. So we knew quite a bit about what to expect once we arrived in Abadiania. She also made herself very available to us once we arrived, being very caring and responsive to our needs.

Had I taken the trip without her guidance, I would not have had the depth of experience that I did

My trip to Abadiania, Brazil with Barbara Rose was even better than I imagined that it would be before I went. I experienced deep healing of my body, heart, mind, and soul. Barbara Rose was an essential part of this healing. She held a space for my group to connect most deeply with the spirits of the Casa, the Divine, each other and ourselves. Her emotional and spiritual depths seem to have no bounds. When I found myself in crisis as I confronted my worst fears in the midst of my healing experience, I reached out for help and Barbara Rose’s capability and compassion made all of the difference for me. In addition to her personal manifestation of spiritual maturity and wisdom, Barbara Rose is extremely knowledgable about the Casa and John of God. She guided our group around lines, waits, and delays. She taught us the ways of the Casa. She prepared us so that we could optimize our time in Brazil and get the most possible out of our journey. Had I taken the trip without her guidance, I would not have had the depth of experience that I did and I would have wasted time learning and negotiating through the logistics of the Casa. I am extremely grateful for her help and guidance and when I return to Abadiania, it will be in one of Barbara Rose’s groups.
