“My friends and I have been making music for a long time. In the Safe Place I was taught how to use computers and sound to produce music for our DVD. Now our music is part of something and out there. It makes me know I can go for my dreams if I work hard.”

“I learned to trust again in the Safe Place. I never trusted anyone since I was a little kid, adults always lied and never came through with their promises, my Dad left when I was young and never looked back. I had to raise myself and be tough. Now I trust people a little more, but mostly I am learning to trust myself to make better choices and not just let anger run my life.”

“I now know that what I have to say matters. I feel like all the problems I have are not so bad, many others have the same problems. They have made me stronger by sharing them.”

“Thank you for helping me see that I am not just my problems, that underneath my problems is a strength that I didn’t even know I had. You helped me learn that I can count on certain things to help me, like Nature, and just breathing, and knowing I can move forward. You are helping me stay focused even when I want to just give up.”

“I wanted to write you to say thank you for all you gave me during my time in the program, I was lost and so alone. You helped me know I was important and what I had to say mattered. I came to believe in myself again.”

“People really care about me in the Safe Place, I really feel safe and forgot what that feels like. I grew up in a really tough neighborhood and was starting to get in trouble. My Mom died when I was 15 and I lost it, started using drugs and drinking and then got sent to Redwood. I can’t believe it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I go the help I needed to deal with my grief, we could never afford counseling and here it was offered at no charge.  I started learning how to feel again and I don’t use as much now, not totally clean and sober, because I still miss my Mom so much, but now I have people who care about me and are helping me.”

“In the Safe Place, I learned that I am not alone, we all have similar problems and can support each other instead of fighting all the time. I grew up with fighting and violence and didn’t know any other way, now I do. Thanks Prometheus for caring enough to teach me.”

“Thank you for all you did for me, I am in college now and would never have gone without your support and guidance.”

“Thank you for the rich experience of collective and personal sharing. I had forgotten that I had a personal myth and our collective myths are so one dimensional. What a joy to not focus on words and everyday problems and enter the world of consciousness and imagination.  I am more calm, nonjudgmental and happier!  I am no longer afraid to show the parts of myself that believe in awe and wonder.  I am, and always have been, curious about the world and forgot what a gift that is.”

“Thank you for the great groups!!! I was so bored with just partying and staying on the surface with so called friends here in college. Now I know how to  express myself more deeply and do things that are fun without just drinking and being crazy. I needed that!  When is the next one?”

T.L.

“Thank you for believing in me when I had no hope, you helped me more than words can express. I am now happy and in college. Can you believe it?!”

“I have been clean and sober for a year now because of the programs I am in at Prometheus, they help us do other things besides getting blasted. I love the retreats and garden. I take care of the chickens and love Nature. Now, I know I can walk down to Coyote Point when I am bored and watch the birds and all the wildlife there. I am going to go to college to study environmental something. I am so happy I found this school and program.”
