"The 2021 Fall Women’s Retreat facilitated by Deborah Perdue was a high and holy, magical, mystical experience that I will never forget. The power of the retreat continues to deeply nourish my spirit and soul. I am forever changed, and I have new “loving soul sisters” in my life. Thank you, Deborah, for your sacred yes to facilitate this event and for being the Loving Divine Presence you are!"

"I recently attended a spiritual retreat on the Oregon coast led by Deborah Perdue and it was a life affirming and life changing experience. I am a recent widow, trying to discover who I am without my partner of 34 years. This retreat gave me a safe place to feel, to speak, to surrender, to forgive, connect with other amazing women, and to realize that my husband is gone, but I am still here. Life continues to offer its open arms and heart to me. Deborah is an amazing leader—so filled with love and light."
~Susan Clayton-Goldner, author
The Retreat was located in beautiful Bandon, Oregon, just one block away from the beach. I was amazed how Deborah our facilitator, managed the event that took place, she was so organized and skilled in group participation. I find Deborah to be very open, compassionate and caring. I loved the openness of the group which made it easier for me to share.
I was also surprised when she played the music that was so appreciated for the Retreat. We all sang with open hearts and I felt spiritually uplifted and connected to all. I was very inspired and gratified when I was leaving, I am also looking forward to the next Retreat which will be sometime in the future."
"The retreat impacted me greatly, in wonderful ways! My heart, step and mind are lighter and brighter. I’m more my true self, the one I thought had gone. I see a light on the horizon I haven’t truly seen in four and a 1/2 years since my husband passed. I couldn’t see a glimpse of the light, even as I pretended to see it. I tried all kinds of healing modalities – yoga, meditation, affirmations, gratitude, and writing thank you’s. Because of this retreat, I feel different, filled with light and love and expectancy of good things happening, and they are. And I cannot say enough about the awesome group of ladies that participated. I have no doubt our paths will intersect again. Thank you for offering this amazing retreat."

"I attended a Gratitude Workshop facilitated by Deborah Perdue. The following are some observations I would like to share:
~Lorna Romano, Medford, Oregon
" I heartily recommend Deborah Perdue's gratitude workshops. As a Science of Mind Practitioner, she brings a depth of understanding to the practice of gratitude, and her joyful, radiant presence is inspiring to be around. In her classes and workshops, I have gained more acceptance and appreciation of what is, as well as healing of some emotional challenges. Please take the opportunity to study with Deborah if you can!"

"It gives me great joy and honor to talk about Deborah Perdue and her Gratitude Workshop. Deborah has been a powerful positive influence on me for a long time, starting with a Foundations class I took from her. My life has changed dramatically. She is a very clear, loving and wise teacher. I have watched the people she has been teaching also embrace wonderful changes in their lives. I had the privilege of taking her Groovin' into Gratitude Workshop. It was wonderful. I continued to see how gratitude opens us to the Divine, to really recognize how much i have to be grateful for. Deborah's loving style of teaching is heartfelt and goes very deep. I feel very honored to have Deborah as one of my spiritual teachers."
~Steve Summerday Ashland, Oregon
"I have had the enjoyment of taking a number of classes from Deborah on my path to becoming a licensed practitioner. I was also asked to assist with Deborah's Grace of Gratitude workshop in Eugene, OR which was an absolute delight. It was a deep, impactful, transformative experience. One thing that was excellent is how Deborah incorporates various tools to help people open up, including music, mixed with meditation and contemplation periods, and journaling. I like how she doesn't just tell us about gratitude, she allows it to be an incredibly in-depth personal experience for each person by these methods. Attending this workshop, I also appreciated the opportunity to connect with others during the dyads and group sharing. Sharing like this is SO powerful and allows us to be a witness to another, and to expand gratitude by listening to the other person, and then being reminded of more we can be grateful for. The finale was to meditate on someone we deeply appreciate in our life, and then write out a Thank You card, to send after the workshop. This was fantastic!
Deborah Perdue is one of those special people who has a genuine warmth that radiates from deep within her and out into the world. That warmth draws people around her in and provides a genuine sense of comfort and ease to both strangers and friends. This is how she shows up in her life and this is how she shows up in a learning environment. Deborah truly lives the Science of Mind philosophy and is a shining example of this way of life."
~Laura Stewart, RScP, Grants Pass, Oregon
"Deborah Perdue is uniquely attuned to her audience and to her subject matter. She listens with her whole being and can access the heart of the question as well as the heart of the one asking. Her heart-centered, genuine presence both captures the attention of her groups and makes her teaching accessible. Deborah is the kind of teacher who changes lives. It is a privilege to attend her classes and workshops and I always come away inspired and wiser, as well as grounded in Truth."
~Nancy Clay, RScP, Grants Pass, Oregon
"Thank you Deborah for the spiritual tool kit you gave us at the Gratitude Workshop in November at the Rogue Valley Center for Spiritual Living . I learned that, at the end of the day....its not what I "GET DONE" that matters. Its who I become. With a grateful and forgiving heart, I can overcome any challenge and in that place of acceptance, know that more good will follow, naturally and freely. Deborah's gentle and sincere style of facilitating gave me the opportunity, and reminded me, to embrace a more thankful way of living."
~Michael Sunday, Medford, Oregon
"Deborah Perdue's Gratitude workshop was superb in every way. She was very well-prepared with an excellent outline. She has good stage presence and is a powerful group leader. She asked intriguing questions and engaged all participants. We broke into smaller groups, then came back together in a large group which kept everybody's interest so well. She utilized the time excellently. Many of the participants took notes, and have shared with me that they continue to practice at home. Quite a few who were part of the group in November told me to thank Deborah for such a great gratitude workshop. I recommend her very highly for any presentation she chooses to do!"
