Here are some comments from people around the world who have learned the Dyad Practice. "Fantastic self improvement process. Yoah Wexler has written a wonderful book, very useful for self development, communication and relationship improvement.' Knowing Your Self ', a collection of 100 Self Awareness Exercises, is nicely presented and easy to read. It teaches you how to do a basic dyad process with a partner, and gives you a well thought out broad variety of 'themes' for dyads.
"The dyad is explained to be a communication exercise for two people with a formal structure to enable effective communicating, listening and understanding each other. Thus it addresses very skillfully one of the most problematic interpersonal dilemmas in this day and age. Applying this technique has brought clarity to relationship issues in my life, made it possible to talk about the seemingly impossible, and brought forth the trust and the courage to reveal myself to the other. It has helped me to know my self, and let others know me, to bridge the painful gap of separateness and move into union and oneness." Gitesha
"Yoah Wexler knows his stuff. I've know him more then 20 years, and have done a number of his programs and I have recommended him to my friends who have all appreciated the recommendation. He has done more research globally on 'knowing your self' then anyone. This Book and Audio work and are a valuable original tool in our search to be authentic. I recommend his work and suggest you connect with him on your journey." Andries Johannesen
“The Dyad Process saved my marriage.” Tim
“This process is the doorway into the Self.” Helen
"I learned this Dyad Communication Process from Yoah about 33 years ago. It saved my marriage. The essential skills of listening attentively without judgment and speaking the truth of the moment openly has allowed our relationship to continue to grow, strengthen and deepen as Patricia and I enter our 38th year together. I have taught this process to many people.
Yoah has done us all a great service by making this simple yet profoundly powerful process easily accessible. His explanation of the process is clear, straightforward, and inviting. And to have so many (100!) and varied dyad exercises in one small handy book is of incalculable value. The gong tape is really an important piece and I am glad he included that in the package. I highly encourage anyone interested in making real and direct contact with another and who wants to improve their ability to relate and know themselves to work with this material. Enjoy. And thank you Yoah." Joseph Rubano
