“I thought Ultimates 1-5 were mind-blowing, but 6-9 are taking me to a whole new level of being and of seeing all beings. Words do not do the Ultimates justice since they are a syncing and elevating of mind, body and spirit that simply must be experienced to be understood. They plug you straight into source and bring a love, strength, joy, clarity and peace that I have never known otherwise in this existence. Thank you, Delta and Cal!” Meredith Locher, Huntington Beach, California

“I came to this training both for professional and personal development. As a CPHI, I feel it is my responsibility to keep as current as possible in my training, and this was the next logical step. Personally, it was time to give my 7th Path™ practice a proverbial shot in the arm. This class fully rejuvenated not only my 7th Path™, but also poured me one on so I could fill back up, better than ever. The question arose about class timing, and I wanted to say that, intense though 2 days maybe, it is exactly right. I still feel like I want mor direction on suggested fees and class structures, but the discussion gave me at least a good start. I am looking forward to amplifying my 7th Path™ teaching when I get home and as the year unfolds.” Anne Shuman Urban, Wilmington, Delaware

“This is amazing. I know the true benefits are near and yet far away. Thanks for helping me thru a very trying time in my life. I now know and feel the path I am supposed to be on. It will be most fun crystallizing this path. Thank you, Cal & Maureen! Feelings about what to change about the course? Nothing comes to mind!” Loren Gifford, Menomenie, Wisconsin

“Looking forward to integrating the new recognitions.” Cathie Strand, Yorba Linda, California

“I am so grateful for 7th Path™ and the Ultimate Recognitions. Thank you Cal & Maureen so much. I feel this class and tool has been and will continue to benefit me in all aspects of my life. I can't wait to share this prosperity with others. It is truly a gift.” Susan Just, Minneapolis, Minnesota

“Words cannot describe the mind blowing experience the Ultimate 5th Degree course offers. I have found my Path and will continue with 7th Path™ my whole life to stay on my path.

“I knew this would be as good or better than 7th Path™ Full form, but I was not prepared for the shift which I received. If a spiritual path is like a stairway up, I not only advanced many steps but perhaps a couple of flights. I can't wait to do 6-9 Ultimates.” Loren Gifford, Menomenie, WI

“This course in 7th Path™ Ultimate Recognitions 1-5 has changed my life, really. I now feel a sense of purpose I never have felt before, and I am truly grateful to Cal for this memorable experience.
