1. A woman left behind the guilt of her recent bankruptcy and had a moment where she cried. Lots of other people helped her share her emotional pain. I let her know that her work comes from a place of love, and then I gave her the tools she needed (3 simple books) to make her business a success.
2. An emotionally-dampened individual was given love by the entire workshop - life flowed into his eyes and expressions, and he stayed that way the rest of the conference.
3. I helped one person see how lower her Power was, and showed her how she hadn't been working on it the entire workshop.
4. People who I had met the night before were telling me how disconnected they felt from me, and how they just wanted to be with me, in the moment. It's impossible to describe how that feels if you've lived your entire life on the "outside" or fringes of humanity like I have, with people constantly attacking you and avoiding you because of your intensity and passion for life.
The real value of attending a workshop is not the speaker, but in the relationship the speaker has with the attendees, and how this relationship flows through each person, giving power to each individual. The socialization opportunities are where the REAL growth happens. I spent more time talking to other conference-goers than I did physically sitting in the workshop. Think about that for a moment....
If you look at the way Steve priced the DVD's, he's only asking 40-60% of the conference cost. He's consciously aware of the value of physically being there and connecting.
