This is what some of the South African practitioners that have been on the year-long Path for Warriors for the Human Spirit programme say about Meg and her work:

“Being part of the 'Path for Warriors for the Human Spirit' with Meg Wheatley has been quietly
disruptive. I have been challenged by some of the thinking, touched by the compassion of the way
and called to practice developing clear perception and an open heart. Meg’s teachings are hard to
hear and impossible to ignore. She makes you think!” ~ Judy Bekker, Renaissance Business

"What a relief to find a programme that isn’t trying to fix, reverse or change systems, but rather is
focused on building a community of ‘decent' human beings who are seeking to arm ourselves with
compassion and insight, and bring out the best in ourselves and others, while (trying to be!)
unattached to outcomes."
~ Paul Hollesen, Sustainability Pracitioner.

"The warriors' path has been a direct experience of finding the hidden connection between the
spaces of life and people. A path of unfolding sacred belonging. It has strengthened my capacity to
be in the world and with myself with steadfastness and lightness. The gifting of the teachers and
fellow warriors community has been one of deep holding and care - it has given me the freedom to
choose. Gratefully it continues with wonder."
~ Inge Adelfang-Hodgson.
