Your Stories – 30th Anniversary of Aaron’s teachings
I’ve been receiving the newsletters over the past few months… I look forward to the daily thought each morning which provides me clarity, peace and hope. The guidance is greatly appreciated and much needed, often it resonates with something familiar pertaining to situations I’m currently in which is great reassurance of the loving support that is available in many forms.

Aaron through Barabara has brought divine teachings that has a very deep impact on my life and on my soul’s journey. Aaron is a Master among Masters. He is responsible for awakening me and I love him immensely.
I think it was Barbara’s first year inviting people to come and visit her and Aaron at her home. My wife at the time was in a bookstore in Ann arbor and one of Barbara’s flyers was stuck to the sole of her shoe. We thought that might mean something, so we paid a visit. I trusted Aaron immediately. His love and kindness were palpable. His words of insight were always helpful. And I like that he was not interested in telling peoples’ fortunes, finding soul mates, who would win the lottery, and stuff like that. He always challenged us to be more skillful in our thoughts, words, and actions. Like many people, I was struggling with unworthiness. I had some private sessions in which Aaron really helped me understand. I grew to love and forgive and accept myself in large part due to Aaron’s guidance. I attended Barbara’s regularly for the first two years and then I moved away. Barbara visited me in Idaho and we set up a series of talks and private visits for her and Aaron. They were both well received. Years later when living in North Carolina, the collection of Aaron’s talks of his time spent with Jesus inspired me to write Forty Seven Stories of Jesus. Although I have not followed Aaron and Barbara or Deep Spring closely, there remains in my heart a precious place for his presence, which I continue to acknowledge whole-heartedly.

I’ve learned so much from Barbara and Aaron and also been touche by their kindness and love. On of the most helpful teachings for me has been how things arise out of conditions and then pass when the conditions pass. This simple teaching helps me to have spaciousness around thoughts and emotions. I am so glad Barbara and Aaron are part of my life! 🙂

I have had the privilege of working with Barbara and Aaron during their weekend non-residential retreats in Seattle and have been very grateful for their many insights into meditation, and my own personal experiences. Almost daily I am reminded that “what is aware of fear/anger is not fear or anger”. Among other things this has been incredibly valuable. Barbara and Aaron always help me reconnect with my highest purpose. Thank you!

I am loving Aaron’s teachings. I have read Barbara’s books, and I find them very uplifting in a life that is so depressing if we are not thoughtful. I am very grateful for their contribution to my life.

Aaron’s wisdom has given me greater access to emotionally-intelligent responses when the heat is on, but more importantly, greater awareness of the conditioned and unconditioned aspects of consciousness. This is priceless. What an amazing gift. Thank you.

It’s no overstatement that the DSC teachings have changed my life since my illness. Not that the previous life was unhealthy, for goodwill prevailed and does still. These teachings though have tweaked whatever was there. Doubt and fear are better understood; there is a spiritual road map and spiritual tools for going forward; and the intentions for serving others (the highest good of all beings) is more clear. There’s more that can be said, much more!…., but let me simply say “Thank you Barbara, Aaron, and the wider sangha.—- soulmates all!” Gratitude!
Barbara and Aaron’s work has had a profound impact on my life. Their teachings have helped me release strongly held ideas and identities, while still continuing to value meditation, enlightenment, love, and God. I’ve learned to live more simply in presence and joy, which sometimes feels quite radical in today’s society. I really appreciate the specificity that comes through Aaron. So many channels remind us to live in presence and joy, but they don’t give practices to help us do that. Aaron teaches Vipassana and Pure Awareness to help us remember our wholeness and to not identify with old patterns. I enjoy the breadth of his teachings, including disparate things like crystals absorbing human pain, paddling canoes on a shamanic journey, sleeping through the night with a snake in a Thai cave, discovering innate luminosity in another dark cave, and healing lepers with Jesus. Each story is like a bead on a necklace, connected with a common thread of God, love, presence, and freedom. I’ve been so touched knowing about the beings and Bodhisattvas that deeply care about humanity and Earth. I discovered the book Anna, Grandmother of Jesus through Deep Springs, which touched something so deep in me. The work of Deep Springs inspires me to live a noble life of morality, concentration, and wisdom for the benefit of all beings. I hope that you find some value in this work and that you forever know the deep spring of your own heart.

It is impossible for me to put into a few words or few sentences the significant impact that the teachings of Barbara, Aaron and John have had on my life. Core message that continues to reveal it self to me is that we are all expressions of the divine. To come to grips with that. So I understand, experience and begin to “see“ that we and all beings are in fact manifestations of the divine seems to be an on ending path with the infinite possibilities. So this journey not always smooth has been guided by these three beings: Barbara, Aaron and John to whom I am immensely grateful.

When the seeker is ready the teacher will appear. Through past life reviews, I now know why Aaron is my teacher. He/She affords me the best opportunity to awaken fully in this life time. What other true reason is there for being here in this bardo? I am grateful beyond words for Barbara, Aaron, The Mother & Jeshua. Their humble, loving and sincere approach to helping us understand the thick density of this realm is so important. Further, the lessons of oneness, real self forgiveness, the indescribable, loving light are just a few of the precious diamonds they so simply and generously provide for us.
