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.
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.
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.
Her soprano voice is exquisite.
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.
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.
My partner and I listened to your talk in the car on the way up to visit my 95 years young mom
and we were both totally engrossed and inspired. Thanks you for the gift of your presence in
our yoga community and in the world!
Thank you August, so much for transforming my life -- no one has had or may ever have the impact on me that you have.
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.
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.
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.
Mystical, magical, miraculous. Thank you for the amazing gift you have given the world,
this community and me personally.
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.
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!
We appreciated all of the time that August took getting to know us and learning about our relationship.
The hours that we spent with her (as a couple) helped her vision in creating the perfect ceremony for us. It
was a completely individualized ceremony that only came to be due to the thoughtful and insightful sessions
that we had with August leading up to our big day. She cast a spell of love and support on everyone.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
Again, I send you both my gratitude and appreciation for the amazing contribution to the
experience described by those who attended as "life changing" and "transformative", it is that
you who responded to the invitation made it all so special.
Profound and intense. Thank you for your talents and leading us through such an amazing day.
At least three things have released themselves since Saturday.
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.
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.
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.
I want to thank you for the inspiring interview you did with Katherine Woodward Thomas
on “Women on the Edge," as well as "The Hero’s Journey" talk posted on your website. I’ve
listened to each at least a dozen times. I see so much of my life and my story reflected in
your own personal story. Thank you for being a loving and supportive mentor on my journey.
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.
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.
Jerry Lanning and Carol Logen slip so demurely into song that it’s a stunning surprise to
discover that a song that seems no more than a conventional romantic ballad should be
sneaking toward such a finish. At its conclusion on opening night at Circle in the Square,
the gingerly dalliance with sweet but surprisingly commanding melody could have been
reprised six or eight times, then and there.
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.
Thank you so much again for all that you gave toward our beautiful ceremony and event. Once again,
you worked your magic. I am so grateful for your teachings and how they have enhanced my life, as as I
wrote in the program, such a special honor to have you officiate over our wedding.
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.
I am so grateful to you for your support and wisdom. When I listen to your talks on my
coastal walks on the other side of the world in Australia it always not only inspires and
motivates me but makes me happy. You are an inspiration.
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.
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.
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"!
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.
The polls are closed and the voting tallied -- it was unanimous that our wedding
ceremony was simply amazing on Saturday.
While it was no surprise to us, so many people who had never met you before (let alone heard you speak) were simply in awe -
you made our wedding full of warmth and love -- far beyond what we could have conveyed without you (and that's saying something).
We are so thankful for all you did for us.
The more I write the more I hear my voice and finally after all these years, I can embrace my
voice with real love. YOU HELPED ME DO THAT.
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.
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!!
Dear Pastor Gold, I live in Europe and a friend was speaking about you at coffee the other day
and I simply wanted to send you a thank you for your 5-5-5 video on YouTube. I send gratitude
and share peace.
I just have to write to you to tell you what an influence you are in my life right now.
Listening to you gives me the permission to be "me." You inspire me. Your story
telling skills are superb. Amazing. The way you weave stories together, link them,
leave the audience hanging until you reconnect them to the story is profound. You
are a genius speaker. That is a process of ingenious knowledge that few speakers know,
and you do it seamlessly. Thank you again for the difference you make in the world.
Your messages have been completely life altering and my perception of life and
Spirit have shifted to a place of greater peace, appreciation and vision. Your
messages have put me in a place where I am "allowing" the flow of life work in me.
In addition, I have been able to practice telling my ego to "curb it's enthusiasm!"
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.
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.
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.
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!
The atmosphere at Happy Hour is charged with hope, vision and heart - it is palpable. It is
inspiring. People take away something very real.
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.
