What are the experiences from participants of our Nestli-seminars so far?
What impressions have been especially valuable and helpful? Here, guests and seminar participants over the recent years, have a chance to speak. They gave us their numerous feedbacks.
“I like the loving, spiritual atmosphere. Especially in challenging pastoral topics one can still relax. Not only training for the head, but also for the heart. The meals are wonderful!”
“My time as trainee at Team.F comes to an end and so my visits in Nestli. There are so many precious impulses for my counselling and so many really wonderfully formative encounters with god and people that I’ve got here! I say very thankfully Good Bye!”
“Watching and listening how you can help people, recognising Gods will of healing and going ahead steps, marvelling at Gods intervention, learning of patience, asking for Him, but also experience his freedom and dignity with which He encounters everybody. Thank all of you very much!”
“Nestli is a place where you can breathe, just alone the nature makes you feeling comfortable. The atmosphere is so agreeable, the meals is also particularly tasty. It was a very precious seminar, where you can learn a good deal from practical experiences for the practice. I got much encouragement!”
“Your Nesli is a house, emanating much warmth. Kudos to the seminar accompaniment, to the kitchen and of course to our study leader. You have thought of everything and it was a good balance between topic, pauses and group work. There was so much space for our questions, thanks a lot for that!”
“My personal benefit: encouragement to face the other seeker of help with their traumata. I feel that I have now the tools to lead a course of discussion instead of losing it, even though I know that challenges will certainly come along.”
“It made me realise once again, that everything is all right and even negative parts must be valued to experience a change. Resourced work came new in my focus and became important to arouse hope and to strengthen self-consciousness and self-efficacy in the clients. The practical exercises were very helpful and now I can use them.”
“I take good tools and material with me, which I will also rework. I feel I am at the right place with all my needs and questions. I admire Ursula’s courage, for she face these issues not only for her own work, but she shares it with us. May God use it in the country.”
“Thank you for your authentic, natural “Being”, that was so good for me. A special thanks for the super delicious and brilliant menu and the enchanting smile of the lady cooks!”
“Dwelling in Nestli during the therapy was a bit like “being at home”. I felt sheltered, felt the blessing all over the plot. Only with that I could find rest within me, could let me fall, encounter God, allow the pain to come. We traumatized people have great problems with that in an unfamiliar environment. For me, it was so important to be, for a short time, part of this place and of this community. So I wasn’t alone. It was just this particular proximity which gave me protection and yet, there was enough distance, which I also needed. Alone in a foreign place, I would have felt entirely lost.”
"The training is highly recommended. The expertise and wealth of experience is very valuable. The parallel to the training required practical work with clients is worthwile, but sometimes challenging to extremely challenging. Occasionally one feels thrown in at the deep end, which is also a method of learning to swim 🙂 "
"The Training is down to earth and is effectively communicated. The link of expertise and additional Christian resources has been really successful. Both in the pastoral and professional sector the "tools" are well suited! Many people from my surroundings could benefit of these tools, sometimes even more effective as in a psychotherapy."
"I felt in good hands, here in Nestli, the lectures were always interesting. Beside the theory part there were always practical exercises, which were very helpful for the counsellors. The kitchen garantueed for our well-being with delicious food."
