Mystical, magical, miraculous. Thank you for the amazing gift you have given the world,
this community and me personally.
Rarely have I heard a speaker juggle three stories, a tragic event and make sense of it all.
I find you are so right on -- Understanding Life thru the context and not the event.
It is a joy to hear you and Carol each Tuesday and I was enlightened at my first class last
Thursday. I thank you and I feel so fortunate furthering my understanding of my life more
fully thru your teaching.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having been a teacher who I could understand
so clearly, that I could feel was walking the path along with all of us, who could always get us
to laugh at your stories, and at ourselves at the same time.
She has a regal beauty, with a soprano voice as clear and pure as Waterford Crystal.
August Gold has been the inspiration, catalyst and midwife for my Spiritual Awakening,
my transformation and my rebirth into my authentic, best and highest Self.
The ceremony was constructed from an exhaustive knowledge of various traditions and with a love for
humanity that is inspiring. We remain grateful to August for elevating the lives of everyone present that
Stillness. That's what I realized I came to our heart opening retreat to be reminded of. To go
one step deeper, push down one more level. To remember.
I tell anyone that lends me an ear how the moment I came to Sacred Center and to you was a
turning point in my life. I can barely recognize this new me I have become and that you over the
weeks and with the classes and messages every weekend help me to uncover. No words will ever
be enough to thank you for this new life that you have unveiled for me. God within me thanks you
and loves you.
Not only did you create the perfect ceremony, but you helped us build solid foundations, changing
the way we communicate with each other, so the day we walked down the aisle there was only pure
joy instead of any tension.
Four years ago when I attended Sacred Center I was on public assistance and was struggling
to rebuild my life after a catastrophic loss of everything including the understanding that
material things were not only what could be lost. Since then I have gotten off public assistance,
I got my business back, and have recently moved into my own apartment in the west village! Not
to mention have started to experience love!!! Thank you and thank you God.
As I consider myself relatively new to process, this was wonderful introduction to a way in
which I can go inward to align myself with the flow of the Universe. By using a variety of
techniques, it showed me that this energy is available to me at any point. I look forward to
deepening that practice.
It must be a most powerful thing to possess the knowledge you have garnered thru many many
years of studying. Just a few weeks glimpse into this world of understanding that you have and
have been teaching definitely makes me want more, as well as, has changed my thinking and .... my life.
What a powerful session today! It was such an important message applicable to everyone;
no matter what their beliefs. It was very relevant "TO ME". I can't possibly thank you enough
for your coming into my life and the awareness you have brought me.
She put the congregation at ease right away with her humor and led a Ceremony that had a deep
sense of inclusivity and community, which was critical to us because of the diversity of our guests.
What a lovely Taizé Community Event! Thank you for hosting with such grace, art,
and sacred energy. It was a transcendent experience.
You bring incredible magic & enthusiasm with your energy and I always try not to miss
the opportunity to hear whatever and wherever your speaking, "beautiful one"!
I want to express my gratitude for what I experienced and learned through you. Those
happy hours were grounding and simultaneously uplifting in a way I had not,experienced
before, and I am incredibly grateful for the more in depth sessions we did before I left. It
has helped me enormously.
I've followed you for years and purchased and shared your fabulous, irreverent, funny-as-all-get-go
talks and go back to them again and again.
Rev. Gold would not want me to give her credit, but it was her style of teaching that kept me
coming back. I felt everything that came forth from her mouth, I didn't understand it, but my
understanding has increased since I first walked into Sacred Center at the Lighthouse on 59th
Street where she ministered to those seeking something. I love her.
I cannot thank you enough for being so present with me. Thank you for living your destiny
for it has had a profound effect on mine for the last 12 years.
Sacred Center services every time I travelled to NYC. It was always a fertilizer of joy,
wonder, uplift and gratitude. I miss that time and place. I carry your words with me
to this day and the spirit of that congregation that I only knew as a visitor. But I felt like
I was at home every Sunday I was lucky enough to attend.
Since discovering Reverend August and studying with her at Sacred Center, my life has been an
ever-widening path of positive unfolding. Her style is wise but kicky, and often hilarious and edgy!
I just started to attend your classes this last fall and it was one of the most exhilarating
experiences I have had in a long time. In addition to the positive energy you both put
out it helped me get through one of the hardest times in my life. I am listening to my
inner voice again after five years, Thanks To Your Teachings!
Her soprano voice is exquisite.
Thank you for for the deep impact you have on my soul. Seeing you and hearing your
beautiful stories always stirs up quite a bit of hope that no matter what is going on in
our lives, the stars are indeed aligned and there are new realities being created that
we cannot imagine from where we presently stand. My daughter feels the same way
-- your wisdom is simply awesome.
Thank you for the free talk "the flow of life”! My husband and I just listened to it and had a great
discussion after. I'm grateful to you for helping me in so many ways. Thank you both for all of the
beauty, wisdom and light you bring to the planet.
A day does not go by where I don't give thanks to your teachings, your humor, your wisdom.
I came to you so broken and in the years I studied with you I learned to pray and practice the
principles in spite of outward appearances. I changed my definition of success and asked what
can I bring and what can I give and not worry at all about what it was I wanted. I thank you.
I just want to say I have repeated your words many times and so thankful I had an
opportunity to work with you. I hope you are well and the next time I'm in NC I will
seek you out. You are doing amazing work, thank you.
I grew up with Catholic school and church, I have attended born-again Christian services,
Pilgrimages, Meditation at a Buddhist center and other meditation and soul searching
activities, and none of these moved me like you did today. It felt as if you were talking to
me one on one.
When you decided to answer your calling August, it was evidence of what I have had faith in all
along. It was the missing piece in the message for me. You do believe in what you preach. You
do walk your talk. I am so grateful for you courage and integrity. You have bolstered my faith
and my integrity.
I had a soul session with August. In that soul session some information came to me and from
then on I changed. That's how it works. Hear this.
I am enjoying your sessions very much. As a practicing Buddhist it is good to hear your
message and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for what you are doing for the gay community.
In the months leading up to the wedding August met with us together and individually to
get a sense of our values and priorities, and deeper insight into the unique qualities of our
She crafted a ceremony that was completely original and deeply personal for us, as well as
engaging for our audience. She was accessible to us at all times to guide us through the
process and on the day of the wedding August was the calm in the storm.
I learned that the time is NOW and my soul is aching for me to grow into myself and be all
that GOD has created me to be. Thank you August for your powerful self. I feel blessed
and honored to learn from such an extraordinary teacher and healer. Heart-felt!
Looking at the faces of the congregants, listening to the Rev Gold’s creedless, therapeutic, but
compassionate and profoundly moral sermon … I had no doubt that the worshippers at the
Sacred Center were experiencing a genuine religion.
You have made a profound impact on my life through Sacred Center for many years -- even
before the second and third homes it had, and the 4t class. I still quote and take courage from
lessons you shared consistently in my life. You gave so much of yourself and truly opened up
our hearts and spirits. And we were so greatly craving all the wisdom you shared.
When I walk into a room with August Gold my priorities get back into alignment, my head
clears, and my heart opens -- I make the changes I need to make in my life.
I love the "unplugged" atmosphere, it's simple, clean, easy -- and I also loved the stories you
chose. Those all woven together masterfully (your specialty!) take it to a deep place, and then
just kept getting deeper and deeper. Loved it!
You are a very gentle, kind, accepting and non-judgmental teacher who has a very strong
connection with the soul of things and people. You always find a gentle way to help me get
to the core of what I want or what is blocking me. All these things are very important to me.
I attended your presentation on being in the moment and I don't believe I have ever
heard a more inspiring message, and one delivered with such passion and sincerity.
Your words were so at once profound and practical. That very positive proclamation
sang to me without judgment but with hope and a powerful sense of inspiration about
the way things are supposed to be for all of us. I still feel beautifully energized by your
words and the bright light of your entire presentation -- an extraordinary yet down-to-earth
Thank you with the sincerest of gratitude for guiding me to going deeper so that I could access
the Truth of who I am and what I have been carrying. Feeling the safety I feel with you allows me
to free myself from the chains that I had (the operative word "had") around my heart. When I
woke up this morning, although my eyes were puffy from crying , I felt lighter.
You've shown me a crack to pry open, go through and begin my life again with a MUCH
clearer head that is filled with forgiveness toward myself. Tonight, I looked in my bathroom
mirror and for the very first time, I said "I love you". Whew ... transformational! You have been
such a tremendous blessing.
Your wholesomeness and integrity "touches" peoples lives from the inside out and allow
them to transform. It takes courage and strength to be a leader and it's been an honor to
participate with you and Carol, and travel with so many friends over the past 9 years with
you as our guide.
Once again, and again and again, I want you to know what a mentor and teacher you
have been to me -- it is because of your loving instruction and guidance I am who I am
today, a person I am very proud of.
I loved the fact that your teachings are based on universal law/truth. Thank you again
for all that you do, and the way that you lead people to truth ... especially through the
method of storytelling. You are phenomenal!
It has been about 2 years now since I had a soul session with you during which time I came
to realize that my soul needed a bigger way of making a difference of giving back … my soul
was slowing dying by continuing to live my ordinary life. When I understood what I needed, I
was able to apply for the Peace Corps to fulfill on a life’s dream. Well, I soon depart for
Botswana to begin my service.
Thank you August for your wonderful service to God and other people.
It is very helpful and practical in every day life. Please keep on.
I discovered you back in 2010 ... and I find myself keeping on being drawn back to your
teachings … there's something about your teaching that creates a deep feeling of
connection and recognition ... I cant really explain it ... but you seem to touch an inner
truth with me ... that says " as you walk out on the way ... the path will appear" Rumi ...
Oceans of love
I have a profound opportunity knocking -- that your experience helps me to hear. Thanks
for always coming out with your Self. You allow me to learn from your experience, and
benefit by your courage and compassion when you Tell It!
Everyone left the ceremony happy and moved by your words -- it was the greatest gift we received. No
doubt, my Dear August, you made our wedding the most beautiful day of our lives.
