      Bedford is amazing. He is truly gifted as a therapist and has the unique ability to identify the core of issues that need immediate action. He uses various teaching methods to assist the client to examine their life, create a plan for change and encouragement as they move toward health and wholeness. My husband and I attended individual week long events and then later a marriage retreat. We had issues that I saw no way of reconciliation. That was over 16 years ago and we will celebrate 48 years of marriage this year. More importantly, I feel I learned life lessons that brought me to a place of being a better me.

      First of all, if I could submit a greater amount of stars than five, I would. I have personally attended about every group and individual program Bedford and/or Melissa has offered. I have referred strangers and family members, as well. I would never refer to anyone that I didn’t believe was exceptional, transparent and committed to excellence. I initially started in their marriage therapy group and couples program when I moved to Nashville in 2010. They more than saved our mixed marriage-they helped us help ourselves and each other in a way very, very few know how and/or willing to share. It’s simple, they both walk their talk, at all times. I have personally been in their journey program which elevated my emotional awareness even more. I can’t imagine we’re I/we would have been without their friendship and their in-depth therapeutic care. I also can’t imagine ever being without an emotional coach. Thank you, Bedford! Thank you, Melissa for your relentless pursuit for excellence! KW

      Having personally been on a couples journey week and an individual journey week, I know without a shadow of doubt that my life, my marriage, and my family would not be where we are today without this incredible process. Working with Bedford is the most meaningful, SAFE, and important decision I could have ever made and continue to make for my life. My clarity of heart, mind, and body connection has allowed me to break free from the bondage of family trauma and imprints and has set a course and direction for my life I could never have done for myself. This is truly life changing therapy!

      Truly, working with Bedford is one of the most important gifts i have ever given myself. Within the context of great care and expertise I felt safely guided to do the work I needed to do. I learned new life skills; effective ways to process grief and newfound ways of working with and seeing issues and life experiences as they are compassionately held within a spiritual framework. Today, as a result, I am beyond grateful to experience more of life's moments within a space of realizing and becoming a more fully integrated and compassionate human being. Pam Abernathy VanDyke MA

      March 11, 1990, Heartstream Journeys saved my life, my marriage, and brought me to a stage of a lifetime of awakening. The program helped me identify a drinking problem (one I was certain I did not have but did!) and as well as helping me identify what I had been running from most of my life. I have gone back to do more work and each time, it helped me put a finger on what was not visible to me. 30 years later I am still a work in progress. I maintain presence with one of their alumni groups on a quarterly basis because life happens to me... so with the older issues out of the way (more or less) I am able to trust the process that leads me to new levels of understanding what lies beneath the surface. The container they create to do very delicate experiential work is just what I needed because I was very wary of this kind of stuff. Melodie Beatie, in her landmark book "Codependent No More" footnotes Bedford in a quote. For me, this is the real deal.

      Bedford is a truly grate therapist. The Heart Stream Journey week saved my life !! Heart Stream Journey week is one of the most beneficial, safe, loving week long personal growth retreats going in the US. Their attention to safety and detail is amazing. Bedford is integral, honest, and one of the most respectful and ethical therapist I have ever met. The accommodations were clan and tailored to the individual, there was a clean sober policy, and an emphasis on no one paring off romantically to provide a clear since of boundaries and safety which I truly appropriated. The work in the week was transforming each time I have gone, and I have gone to many HSJ weeks over the years.

      their retreats seem to be a good excuse for them to get others to pay for their vacation. They do not discourage romances during these retreats and/or don’t pay much attention to whether romance is going on. I would not recommend them.
