During the first days of attending UMS it was revealed to me through pH testing and kinesiology (muscle testing), how out-of-body I have been. I have been living in my mind. This inspired me to start working out, walk on the earth, practice the I AM Breath and BreathPlay every day to feel happier in my own skin and become certified as a Conscious Breathing Coach.

UMS changed my life. The grounding and self healing work allowed me to open to my higher self and spirit guides. I practice Accelerated Healing, and go beyond it to hear healing messages directly, and I am so grateful to the paid! Thank you for opening me up!

UMS was exactly what I needed. Everything came at the perfect time. My growth this year has meant so much to me. As a result of attending UMS, I feel more confidence and trust in myself than I’ve ever had before. The inner strength I have reached… I never would have reached this point if I had not come to California and attended this school. This includes my experience here in Mount Shasta; the people I’ve met. I have awakened to myself. Only 2 years ago I was in the state of mind I have to get a degree, get a job, have a family and live that so called American dream that is such ridiculous bullshit. And the Universe came along and said “No, this is not for you”. And it led me to massage school which opened my mind, and then I knew I wanted to go into Holistic Psychology. I googled holistic psychology and UMS was the url that appeared. I called Joa for an interview, and after I hung up, I knew I was going, and this was the best decision of my life. After completing this program, I feel a lot more relief and calm. I feel more freedom, SO MUCH MORE FREEDOM! No let me reframe that… I AM FREE! Ha Ha Ha! I am happy. I feel this connection in myself I am loving myself. I am able to recognize too, when I have negative thoughts coming up that bother me the fact that have these tools and understanding is such a relief. Additionally, to have this greater understanding of universe and energies, and to know what is going on; even knowing when sometimes I get these feelings that seem heavy, foreign and toxic, to realize, “Oh, this isn’t really me. This is something else. And to be able to clear it instantly is such a relief. At UMS I learned how to set my self free from whatever blocks my happiness, and now I laugh a lot and I’m more creative than ever before.
Carleen Goetze, 2017 Graduate
Before attending UMS, I was experiencing the lowest point in my life. After a painful ending of my career at thattime, I felt deep shame, depression, sadness and sorrow, and was full of suicidal and vengeful thoughts. I was lost in negative energy with a lack of direction or course to take to proceed further through life. I thought life wasn’t worth living anymore and someone more worthy should take my place; I had lost my purpose, my faith in myself and others.
Now in the program, my life is already changing. I don’t feel those heavy feelings, but if they do come up, I know how to let them go. UMS has been a safe and nurturing environment for me to learn a versatile curriculum of skills and certifications for my physical, mental, and spiritual growth. One skill that was challenging yet beneficial for my personal growth is Inner Bonding, a method that got me looking within myself to find what I really need and want in my life, and as a result, have a gained new and positive perspectives.
I appreciate Joa as a Spiritual teacher because he accepts you for you, with no judgements. He incorporates not just his spiritual teachings and findings but presents other renowned teacher’s methods to enhance a broader understanding and mastery of spiritual psychology, holistic healing, and life coaching. I recommend anyone who is interested in these fields as a new career, or even more so to expand their spirituality to higher levels.

UMS provides transformation in deep levels of the human experience that are normally overlooked – in service to the greater good for myself and everyone I relate to. I see the ripple effects of my own changes effecting positive change in others around me.

At UMS, tangible miracles in my relationships have happened–literally in seconds after doing the techniques I learned! I feel so much gratitude and deep joy as my life is upgraded and uplifted on all levels.

Usually just before coming to each UMS class, some life issue is welling up inside me, and without fail the class addresses my issue and empowers me to heal it, without me even having to mention it.
Ana Noriega 2016 Class
The Conscious Breathing work so changed my life in only three weeks to another level of my being. Heavy emotions have been cleared out of my system, leaving me feeling so present, released, energized, and connected to my own power.

To feel, think, and speak from my heart of hearts is so valuable. Each day is worth more than a month’s tuition. Beloved Joa is a pure partner of our oneness in this most moving spiritual experience of my life time!
