Karl Steyaert is truly a force of nature. This man has one of the most robust skill-sets of anyone you’ll ever meet who specializes in learning and interpersonal and group process work. Karl’s breadth and depth of knowledge and experience is nothing short of remarkable. He has been, is, and will be a huge asset to any group or organization with whom he works.

Director, Cascadia Workshops

Karl has remarkable experience in dealing with conflict and led such an enjoyable, gentle and peaceful discussion. He has a way of not lecturing, which I often find tiring, but rather encouraging us to make our own inquiry in self reflection and small group discussion.

Lyndall Parris

Founder & Director, Narara Ecovillage

Working with Karl, I experienced an awakening of the wholeness of my self. With deep listening and warm acceptance, Karl created a space where my whole self could come to the table, find deeper connection and compassion, and grow. Karl gracefully balanced reverence for my own wisdom and path with gentle encouragement and guidance, helping me to author my own healing, and celebrating with me the joys I found along the way. I am deeply grateful.
