Stories that matter.
About two years ago I was in a dark place. I found myself dead inside. It was as if I was trying to move forward without a very important element missing. As I began to open up about my childhood, the neglect I felt from my childhood, though coming from a loving home, began to uncover hidden feelings that I had disregarded as unimportant. As I began to be honest about the pain in a safe environment, I began to come into a place where I could be present with what I had felt as a little girl. I've learned that if I am willing to be honest with myself and others about what I'm feeling, about what is truly going on in my heart (not just the superficial things) then I can find a place of truth and life. Learning to live from the heart seems to leave me more vulnerable than before but also gives me a secure and real place from which to connect.
I found myself
Our entire marriage we suffered under pain, neglect and miscommunication as we acted out core beliefs from our childhood. Although outwardly others may have thought we had a good marriage, inside we hurt and felt like strangers living under the same roof. Joseph led us on the journey to each other’s hearts. For the first time in my life, I fell in love with my wife, Cherith’s, heart (her smile and voice are completely different when she is in her heart). I began hearing God anew for the first time in ten years. Our values have changed, as we realize loving and caring for each other is so much more fun, intimate and meaningful than any temporal values or other things. We both want to help other hurting people we meet. In a most wonderful providence, my parents saw the change in us and have also gone to see Joseph and are starting on a journey to emotional connectedness too.
WE FELT LIKE STRANGERS LIVING UNDER THE SAME ROOF.
Rico & Cherith Mundy
Recently, my fiancé and I travelled to Oregon to spend time with Joseph. When humbling yourself in a place of healing, the results are staggering. In one short week, the trajectory of our engagement, and future marriage, was changed. We experienced clarity and were offered fathering-wisdom that we will access for years to come. You will be changed by walking toward the desires of your heart. Navah is not for the faint of heart, because you will be gifted the opportunity to enter your own journey.
OUR LIVES WERE
CHANGED IN A WEEK.
Ben & Lindsey
I have remained trapped in sexual addiction that ruined two marriages and cost two families dearly. I am now trying to heal my marriage and my family and of course myself. Jospeh showed me how to move from my mind and into my heart, my heart, MY HEART! I let God into me. I was able to have real spiritual experiences. I learned that I have spent most of my life with my heart in a box. Without really knowing it. Leaving me essentially unable to give or receive love. Sexual addiction was my way of trying to feel something. I have been able to give myself to God now without the burden of justifying it in my head, my busy head. I feel excited and want to begin a new life. My wife and I now have a new footing with each other. We are both convinced that we can navigate toward a much better place, despite being in such ashes. But, regardless of what happens, I know that I will now walk with God. I am opening to life and it feels wonderful!
I WAS TRAPPED
IN SEXUAL ADDICTION.
I had heard of Joseph many years ago through friends, though had never met him. He was described to me as a "heart whisperer" of sorts; someone who could probe deeply and help mend. That all sounds really wonderful, but I didn't want to get my hopes up because I didn't want to be disappointed. My husband and I spent 24 hours with Joseph, over 4 intensive days...learning and listening and sharing and grieving and healing. This is going to sound shallow, but prior to this we had just cancelled a trip to Paris...for the third time...and instead chose to see Joseph. I was a bit deflated. Honestly, I’m so thankful we came to Bend for a week instead! What we gained in our lives together cannot begin to compare to a vacation. Thank you Joseph for being such a humble and helpful guide on our new path.
A "HEART WHISPERER"
One of the most incredible elements of Navah is that Joseph has no intention of filing minds with formulas of how to handle situations or simply “fix” you. He instead genuinely cares for the most hurt spaces in your heart, and offers hope and empowerment to walk towards freedom.
NO INTENTION TO
FIX YOU WITH A FORMULA.
About six months after we lost our son, we came to a point where we really needed help in the grieving and healing process. We were at a loss. A friend recommended Joseph Dalton, and I am so glad they did. Not only did Joseph give us tools to walk through the grieving process, but he helped open our eyes to an entirely different dimension of living. Our marriage changed. Our relationship with our kids changed. Friends. Co-workers. I am not exaggerating when I say that Joseph Dalton literally changed our lives. I cannot recommend him enough. He has a special gift, and I thank God for him often.
WE NEEDED HELP GRIEVING, IT LITERALLY CHANGED OUR LIVES.
I am so thankful for the gift my fiancée and I were given through Joseph. For so long it seemed that our relationship was something heavy we had to carry. I knew there was something missing, but we were walking blindly. It was Joseph who taught us how to open our eyes and to open our hearts. I cannot think of a man more suited or designed for that task. The way Joseph approaches life (and healing) is so natural and refreshing because it is grounded in the peace and love of Jesus. There is no pressure, no condemnation, and no religiosity. Joseph’s approach and understanding of the heart makes so much sense it is shocking. Not only does he have truth on his side, but he has a wonderful ability to explain (and depict!) emotional and spiritual concepts that are integral to healing. After seeing Joseph my life has been opened up to me, and I am more excited than ever to live it with the woman I love.
HE TAUGHT US TO OPEN OUR EYES AND OUR HEARTS.
I had never been to a counselor before I began seeing Joseph Dalton. I went in knowing I was empty, depressed, and overwhelmed with performing through life; yet, I wasn't even sure how to ask for help. From the first moment, I was put at ease and could tell Joseph was trustworthy and genuinely cared about my pain. He was able to help me put words to my story and walk with me to honesty. Joseph’s discernment and wisdom was balm to my heart. Time spent in the office changed my life. I had never before experienced hope and excitement concerning my own journey.
I HAD NEVER BEEN
