Testimonials from seminar attendees, coaches, readers, and friends of Gay and Katie Hendricks.

Aileen Hayden

“I have encountered the idea that suffering is optional before - and this is the first time I have tasted it in my body. There is a space around my suffering now that is new and opens up a lightness in life I want more of. That is an indescribably precious gift.”

Jack Resels

“I found the Conscious Loving workshop fun, profound and empowering. Gay and Katie created such a safe, enlivening and loving atmosphere that it was really easy to participate and play full out. I feel that I've got some real tools to develop skills in feeling and enjoying all of my feelings, and in making love easy. This is a must workshop for anyone who wants to consciously experience more love in their life, regardless of their life circumstances.”

Maurie Arnold

“It's been 4 and a half years since my first training with Kathlyn Hendricks, and my personal and business life has never been the same. One of the many gifts I've gotten is learning about Emotional Literacy - using my body cues to know what I'm feeling and to express myself authentically.”

Diana Carson Chapman

“Have you ever had the experience of having the lights turned on inside yourself and you never knew they were off? That's what happened to me when I attended this event for the first time. I found aliveness, emotional flow, open-mindedness, presence, play, connection with myself and others, and so much more. One of the best investments I ever made! Take the leap...”


“Before I went to my first training, I had read one of Gay Hendricks' books, watched many videos on their website and had been receiving coaching sessions from one of their certified coaches, Helen Daniels. I signed up for the training because I loved what I was learning in the coaching sessions, and I loved watching Katie Hendricks laugh in the videos. I remember feeling intrigued by the commitment form I was asked to sign before arriving. As I stepped up to the registration desk, I felt happy to see the level of diversity in the participants - all ages and all types of lifestyles. As the weekend went on, the thing that most impressed me was how much knowledge and craft there is in the tools, and how fun is woven in to every aspect of the work. That combination of refinement, depth and fun is what made the training itself fulfilling and the content easy to bring back into my life. Over time using the tools has woken me up to a myriad of glorious potentials in my life that I had not been able to see. This body of work is a masterpiece, crafted over a lifetime by Katie and Gay Hendricks. The tools are masterfully user-friendly and brilliantly fun to play with. And the results you can create are astonishing.”

“Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks are insightful guides and bold pioneers in the broad field of growth through relationship - the only place where growth can take place, I happily recommend them to everyone.”

Stephen Bodian

“Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks teach an integrated approach to living our spirituality in every moment of our lives—in our relationships, our work, our creativity, our play. Their trainings are powerful, transformative events in which the encrusted behaviors and attitudes of a lifetime are dynamited apart with integrity and love. Not only are they master therapists and teachers, they are beautiful, big-hearted beings who walk their talk. I recommend their work wholeheartedly.”

Crystal Dawn

“I have attended at least 5 Evolutionary Playgrounds! I love it so much, I keep coming back. Each time, I learn something new as Katie invents new ways to invite the growth of a nervous system that can handle more and more positive energy. At the last E.P. I attended, I discovered I had been fainting through life. I had been fainting that I faint. I knew that I had a tendency to run when I was scared. And discovering that I energetically faint when I am scared has given me a sense of waking up. Since then, I have been more active in my community and in my life!”

Deb Glass

“If you’re not willing to experience BIG, POSITIVE shifts in your life, then this is definitely not for you! Immersing myself with the tools learned here has literally shifted my perspective of the world. My reward is to be living and creating my life to the fullest, most enjoyable experience possible. I’m learning to expand my ability to give and receive love and am now nourishing myself in a ways that are struggle free. When I first came across this opportunity, I felt scared and unsure and did it anyway. Now after attending 3 Evolutionary Playgrounds (I’ve experienced each training uniquely) I can undoubtedly say that choosing EP is the single best decision I have made in service of myself. Katie is pure genius, modeling living in integrity and wholeness. Come and learn for yourself.”

Rebecca Folsom

“This Program has been revolutionary in my personal and professional life. I am authoring my life through embodied wisdom. I am creating out of greater stability, ease and generosity. I am in a direct and satisfying relationship with everyone and everything in my life. I feel I'm learning the doctorate level of creative mastery. Quite pleasantly, with the brilliant tools of Katie and Gay Hendricks I'm accomplishing more in my work and personal life through discovery and joyful play than I ever did with hard work. I thank my lucky stars to have been introduced to their Evolutionary Playground!”

“Evolutionary Playgrounds is the place to be and return to over and over again...if your interest is to transform your life and relationships while creating a really good time. I always thought that life change HAD TO BE HARD, and during my first training (I've returned many times), I laughed more in one weekend than I probably had in years. Discovery and transformation through play is evolutionary in and of itself, and as a physiologist, it's also the genuinely biological way that WORKS for sustainable growth. I'm more vital, alive, youthful, happy and available for possibilities and new realities than ever before.

Rev Dr. Dee Cooper

“Evolutionary Playground is a three-day spectacular embodiment of deep play and lively connections. I thoroughly enjoyed EP- and have returned many times for the life-changing reminders. Personally, I had held for many years the value of play. I had not discovered a way to integrate play when dealing with "serious" issues. I often judged myself that I was discounting the level of severity of the other. Through the wonder of this playground, I have radically changed my perspective. I have experienced that play loosens the grip and expands the energetic density of any issue in a manner that invites movement and thus changes. This foundational integration of play is a game changer for me as a facilitator, a therapist, a minister, and a coach.”

Julie Freeman, MFT


“Evolutionary Playground is THE MOST FUN transformational weekend workshop I have ever attended! If you too spend way too much time in your head, come discover the wisdom of your body through simple yet powerful practices you can do again and again. I've never laughed so much and learned so much all at the same time before Evolutionary Playground. Katie Hendricks is a masterful facilitator.”

“I said I would offer some feedback on how I find the difference between 5-8 day face-to-face sessions and week-to-week online sessions with you guys. I love both. Spending a few days in a row in the face-to-face trainings was great. I left feeling completely connected. In hindsight I was overwhelmed by the large number of commitments and agreements I made all in one go. I spent quite a lot of time undoing the ulps. And they were mixed up, not sure what was what. Now, bearing in mind, this may be my learning style. Also, I love the interaction and actually meeting amazing people. In the Weekly online sessions, you cover one or two topics well and the group work is fab. I find the “bits” of info just enough to digest in a week. Like this week, I noticed myself wondering about listening. Noticing I had a good number of filters and was able to address them bit by bit, asking the other to repeat what they said, noticing if I was short based on a judge filter etc. I have done this every week. Each subject , I seem to have jumped in and live each topic into embodiment. (Love that?). Also meeting every week helps me reset. And so I get to have weeks of Hendricks magic over a longer period of time. I feel and experience that I am adopting a practice for life in a more sustainable way. Katie and Gay, I hope this makes sense. Thank you for your amazingness. Much love and respect.

“If you are in an intimate relationship, regardless of whether it’s awesome or maybe could use a little TLC, I cannot recommend this weekend with Kathlyn Hendricks highly enough. It really is possible to completely eliminate blame, criticism, and bickering from your relationship.”
