First Hand Testimonials from the Circle of Trust

James C.

I spent a year looking for the right place to heal and had a lot of bad luck. I went to one place down in Southern California for 3 days and it was absolutely terrible. The level of care and quality was very disappointing. Then I found the Circle of Trust Healing Center in Oregon and I think it’s brilliant. The people here are fantastic, very caring, and I don’t trust people easily. I’m very impressed.”

I went to circle of trust end of November for 5 weeks. Norma is a world class guide in the healing process . I am very educated how a therapist should be and Norma developed an unique theory and I believe it works better than EMDR. I have a lot of trauma and it has helped me heal. It takes me a long to time to gain trust but circle of trust earned my trust. I am hard of hearing and they worked hard to accommodate me.  The place is phenomenal and it’s beautiful. It’s paradise.  Thank you circle of trust.

“For many reasons, this center is ideal for people to take seriously the steps to health which require self introspection, quiet, and dedication. Quite simply, there are few places that are truly dedicated to the depth of healing required to make such a major change.  First and foremost is the deeply caring staff, who are trained in the Journey to Completion Recovery Model as designed and offered by the inspiring Director of the Center, Norma J. Burton.  The Staff take on doing their own shadow integration work too so they are capable and trustworthy leaders of this trauma healing process.

Not only that, the exquisite nature-conservancy setting of the Center with its spectacular views, 100% organic cuisine, and a host of holistic amenities make this the finest of healing accommodations anywhere!

“I was honored to spend 30 days at The Circle of Trust healing center and it was beyond expectations. The daily meditation and mindfulness techniques taught there are now part of my routine and have truly given me a new perspective. Norma’s guidance and map through the Journey to Completion have turned past shadows into new warrior moves. All of the staff is warm, caring and professional. I felt safe to bare my soul and to do the hard work of healing.”

“The Circle of Trust Healing Center is a once in a lifetime experience! Nowhere else will you find healing coming from so many avenues.

Each individual receives a high degree of personalized treatment and attention to unique needs. Here at the center each person is given the opportunity to reconnect with their higher (spiritual) self while developing tangible skills, self-awareness, and Recovery IQ. In addition, there are highly skilled yoga teachers, massage therapists, infra red saunas, hyperbaric oxygen, and a host of other state-of-the-art detoxing options. The Master Organic Chef delivers her unique style of healthful, organic food that is nothing short of captivating. Those who are not local should also know about the fresh air and beautiful moderate climate in this area.

And last, but certainly not least is the beauty of the facility itself. Attention to detail and quality is present every square inch of the large center and just being in such carefully appointed luxury is healing. This place makes coming through all the way to a new place in one’s body and mind a real possibility.”
