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.
Her grace, humor, wit, and spirit elevated our ceremony to a level that I never thought possible.
Our wedding was a first same sex wedding for many of our older family members. Within the first
two minutes of the ceremony, any sense of curiosity or fear left the place, and all that our guests
experienced was pride and commitment.
She has a regal beauty, with a soprano voice as clear and pure as Waterford Crystal.
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 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!
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.
Mystical, magical, miraculous. Thank you for the amazing gift you have given the world,
this community and me personally.
The 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 Soul sessions we did before I left. It has
helped me enormously. With gratitude for the safe, empowering space you create.
If I could stuff Christmas stockings with shining theatrical moments, I would pick Jerry Lanning
and Carol Logen singing “My Darling, My Darling,” with Raul Julia in the warm and winning
revival of “Where’s Charley” in Circle in the Square.
Thank you August, so much for transforming my life -- no one has had or may ever have the impact on me that you have.
My daughter came to hear you speak. Your words helped her see with new eyes. The
ripples from your talk have carried her quite far into a new reality. It was a magical day
for our family, the day the big shift occurred and her transformation began.
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.
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.
The Prayer Chest has inspired myself and others around me. I give copies to members of
my social circle and coworkers when it is evident that they have lost their way. It has moved
and touched me in a way I never thought a book could. God bless you for being an inspiration.
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.
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 want to thank you for being the message that helped me step onto the road I am walking today.
You gave me the gift of voice and helped me realize I have a gift to share with the world.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If any of my Fort Lauderdale friends have issues with attending church and the "God thing"
-- but are looking for a positive approach to life and some sense of what "spirituality" means,
I HIGHLY recommend attending these Tuesday meetings at NOON at the Pride Center. August
is probably the most consistently upbeat, positive, and on-point person I've had the pleasure of
listening to in Fort Lauderdale. And the music of Carol Logen is simply phenomenal!
I've been following you since I lived in New York City and you were still at Sacred Center.
You were the reason I went on to be the person I am today. I'm so very proud of who I am.
What a lovely Taizé Community Event! Thank you for hosting with such grace, art,
and sacred energy. It was a transcendent experience.
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.
The talk last week revitalized my morning practice and with amazing results. In just a week, I feel
like I have become re-grounded in my life with a rediscovered lightness and openness. Just another
Happy Hour success story for you. Thank you both again for everything that you do for us all.
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.
At last week's gathering it was as if you could read our minds and soothe our hearts
with a song - it all makes sense. Thank you for sharing your humanity.
I learned my soul is soft, not hard, and the best way to approach it is with openness and joy
(or ice cream!). It was a beautiful day and a blessing to share with everyone.
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.
My heart and soul are singing now … tears of joy stream down my cheeks regularly whenever
I remind myself that I have this HUGE opportunity to impact the lives of many. August, thank
you for opening the door … and shining light into my soul. Thank you for speaking to my heart
each and everything time I had the opportunity to be guided by you.
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.
I want to thank you for the gift and being the message that helped me step on to the road I am
walking today. Rev August with your message I was able to listen to spirit even through its low
whisperings. Rev Carol you gave me the gift of voice and helped me realize I have a gift to share
with the world.
I left with new tools that allowed me to take myself to a deep, quiet, sacred place I’d never reached
before where I found strength to defuse, and make myself the priority of the moment. Very empowering.
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.
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 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!
Today's message was so clear to me. A new world opened for me. Your words your message
your stories your vibration will serve me well the rest of my life. Maybe the most important
message I ever heard ... and got!!
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.
… Her pure soprano voice endears her to the audience and makes each song soar with a
life all its own.
I reconnected with what I put away, my love of dance -- it is when I feel my connection to Spirit
in a profound way. I now know that is where my healing is to begin.
Thank you for holding this space for us.
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
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.
Her soprano voice is exquisite.
The Prayer Chest is not just a novel, it is a parable and a guide-and like your family passes
precious traditions and heirlooms down through generations, this book felt that special. Short
enough to be enjoyed a singular day at the beach, but long enough to imprint new and pivotal
truths on your heart. If you are a seeker, a philosopher, spiritual sort or a person driven by
purpose, contribution or your divine itches, this book will give you the tools to pray remarkable
changes into your life.
Even though our families didn’t know each other before the wedding day, you truly made the room
come together as “one.” You have the rare gift of speaking a "universal language" that touches everyone's
heart, no matter what their background , sexual orientation, beliefs or culture.
I am a better man thanks to you and the world around me is a friendly world to live in.
I will always be grateful for the channel God has given me thru you!
August - Our one on one time together continues to be invaluable for me - coming to be
with you on Tuesdays at The Tao of Living Agelessly enhances my life.
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.
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.
