TESTIMONIAL – DECEMBER 2008
I first heard of the Renascent Centre when I was approached by a stranger as I was walking my dog along a walking track in Warrandyte. Normally I wouldn’t talk to a stranger, but this man persisted in talking to me, and then told me he was a healer. He quickly got my attention. After a brief chat, he told me he instinctively knew he was meant to talk to me, and said he knew of a ‘naturopath’ who could help me – and then described the Renascent Centre. I drove past the Renascent centre on the way home, and promised myself I would return. I finally returned 14 months later.
I first saw Daryll Mitchell in June 2006, with various health issues including variable fatigue and a lack of stamina, an immunoglobulin (IgG) deficiency (low immune system), persistent sore throat, systemic candida, endometriosis and accompanying symptoms, and multiple food intolerances. I had a 6 month old baby through IVF and although I was very happy and coping, my various health issues made it more challenging. I visited the Renascent Centre in a weekly ‘drop in’ time, and briefly told Daryll my health history. He then asked me to lie down on the table and quickly assessed that I was ‘very tired’. He gave me a brief healing, and suggested I make an appointment to return a week or two later. I felt fine afterwards, however 5 days later I came down with a ‘virus’ – it lasted about 10 days. I then saw Daryll for a full clinic appointment just at the end of the ‘virus’, I felt fine, and again 5 days later, I was struck with the same ‘virus’. The same thing happened after my 3rd visit so I asked Daryll how I could avoid it happening again. He explained it was my body’s way of healing and a detoxification process. Finally after the 4th visit, I had a glowing complexion and aching muscles, but no ‘virus’. Then, after about 6 weeks of aching muscles, I discovered a solution – simply drink a lot more water. Finally, after visiting Daryll every 2 – 3 weeks for about 3 months, he announced my blood was cleaner, and we could now start work on strengthening my body. I continued to see Daryll in his clinic at 3 weekly, and eventually 4 weekly intervals, until now I see him when I feel I need (or want) to. My energy levels and stamina have gradually improved over the past 2 and a half years, and are now better than I can ever remember. My immune system is strong and the sore throat is gone. The endometriosis improved very quickly and the symptoms are now almost non-existent. My gynaecologist observed a significant improvement within 6 months and admitted there was no medical explanation for it. The Candida and food intolerances have improved, and I believe with continued effort, they will eventually be gone for good.
I commenced weekly Qi Gong classes 5 months after I started seeing Daryll in the clinic, and immediately knew it was something I wanted to pursue. Over the past 18 months, I have also completed courses in Medical Qi Gong (including Masters), Reiki (including Masters) and Basic Kinesiology. I have experienced many phases of detoxification, from colds and flu’s to old symptoms returning and then disappearing again, but overall a constant upward trend. I have often experienced short-term detox effects when practising a new form of Qi Gong, however the longer-term benefits have always been worth it. I will continue to practise Qi Gong and Reiki at home on a daily basis, knowing that this will not only continue to restore my health, but also sustain it. I am very grateful to the Renascent Centre for assisting and guiding me to restore my health. I have my life back and I am now living my life to its fullest potential. Thank you Daryll and Lesley.
Background - I was diagnosed with an Immunoglobulin blood deficiency (IgG) in my early teenage years – symptoms included chronic fatigue, recurrent sore throats, and low immunity to colds, flu’s and viruses. At the time I was told it was hereditary, but it has never shown up anywhere in our family, or family history. From the original diagnosis until the age of around 25, I was given IgG intraveneously or via injection every 2 – 3 months. I lived a relatively normal life in this period and overall my energy levels were around 80 – 90% of the average person. After a period without any IgG supplementation, the original symptoms returned and following referral to an Immunologist, and subsequent tests revealing extremely low levels of IgG, supplementation re-commenced. However, following 2 extreme allergic reactions to the IgG, supplementation was no longer an option. Western medicine couldn’t do anything else for me – I was told to go home and live the best life I could. I now believe the then diagnosed IgG deficiency and related symptoms were directly related to a root canal performed due to a tooth abscess (following a netball accident) when I was 10 years old. The tooth was removed when I was 29 years old, and an abscess was evident (we don’t know how long it had been there). My health and energy levels improved in the short-term after the tooth was removed. However, a number of health issues remained, as above.

Everything was fantastic, it leaves me (as usual) wanting to know more & more (which is why I ask so many questions) Lesley was very tolerant to all of my questioning
V. Da Costa
Really helped to solidify some of the feng shui knowledge and again – very enjoyable. Loved it again
Thanks for clarifying about the Nth & Sth hemisphere debate. I had been hesitant of doing the feng shui corrections. Your information fills in the gaps.
Dowsing seems really interesting. Thanks for the jasper gemstone
Dear Lesley & Daryll
What can I say, words cannot begin to describe the amount of information, yet very practical, easy to use tools in my everyday life. I have been with you from day one and am yet to fault your teachings. My passion is Reiki 10/10
Although I have previously done reiki 1 & 2 – you cannot compare them (chalk / cheese). I never really felt 100% about truthfully following my path. This time it was much more intense/powerful. Thank you! I know I will go a long way with it.
Most of all I really appreciated the comments I received when practicing reiki with the other students. One lady in particular was so overwhelmed, in tears and literally left speechless she asked if I was a practitioner (no) and said “you’ve got it” Now that is priceless.
Congratulations on a job well done (gassho)
Fantastic, inspiring, Loved everything. We did not want the class to end – loved it!
Thank you for your time, dedication, knowledge & humour – fantastic. I loved it – thank you. Every day peeled off another layer off the onion. Thank you very much
One thing on a positive note. I was found to have a growth in my uterus in November last year and this at first caused me concern as I fear I may die before I have lived my purpose here. I have been under a specialist and decided that I did not need this in my life. It was during the last series of Events that I actually felt a shift here and knew I had nothing to worry about. I had another scan last week as they said if it spreads or grows then they would operate but as I am sure you have heard it all before.
The doctor said “gee as you can see on previous scans there it is I do not know what it was or where it went but you are clear there is nothing at all I can see”.
I walked out with a smile on my face and a song in my heart and a reconnection with the faith I have tried to trust for so long.

The environment is lovely and the teaching method is great. I’ve been finding my sight improving as I thought I had myopia but am realising it may be my liver meridian needs some work to restore it
So thank you
Funny, insightful, brilliant teacher, loved everything including the sharing of Lesley & Daryll’s personal experiences
I loved this course – I want more, more, more – thank you!
After Saturday, Qi Gong Awakening, I noticed my taste buds had changed, my desire for junk food nearly gone, Sunday & Monday – huge detox, Tuesday – felt enlivened, sleeping better, feel more alive, excited. When we did group sending of Chi. I felt myself expand, it was as if I had blended with the universal Chi
I will use this with my son, family, cooking, cleaning and everything, everyday will have more positive energy around me & mine.
I felt the energy from the healings lifting burdens & grief from recent family sadness.
I feel lighter & brighter
Interesting, after feng shui I went home very excited, lots of stuff to share and talk about. Qi Gong has been a more internal experience.
I came to this series with my main focus on the Qi Gong. As some aspects of the training have been inspired by Qi Gong. I am not disappointed & have been able to make some connections that I assumed I would make.
I have endeavoured to have an open mind and not try to fir it into my preconceptions. Maybe it will take a while to integrate. Writing this has probably been more therapeutic for me than informative for you
It was great – the afternoon was fantastic
Love Chris K
Enlightening, I don’t feel like I’m lacking anymore (there was always something previously missing).
Excellent, easy to understand. I feel more enlightened, inspired & confident
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom. I was fascinated by your “I” story in the welcome pack and of your many travels. I enjoyed being in the great Chi circle
The most relevant things learnt: relax, keep it simple, no force
PS – It is much easier to learn & understand when taught in English, not Mandarin
Master Daryll Mitchell – very wise, funny, an old soul, young at heart. I will be harvesting Daryll’s teachings & Qi immediately.
I have in deed felt a reconnecting with the micro cosmic chi
I have been told before and reminded by my charts and clairvoyants that I have psychic and healing abilities – and this course has re affirmed these transformative powers
Excellent, Daryll is easy and explains things beautifully, friendly. Everything feels so right. The tools to heal myself and later others, I want to learn more.
I enjoyed the feeling of tingles in my hands and warm feeling of being cocooned
I found the workshop very informative and very entertaining. The workshop seemed very well orchestrated with adequate breaks and good time to practice.
What a lovely room – great location, especially the public transport and lunches.
Thanks for a great few days of Qi
Excellent, informative, brilliant, pleasant. I will use what I have learnt to improve my “lifestyle” and make it part of my day. It has given me a thirst to learn more – stimulated my interest! Have learnt so much over these 2 days
A lot of what we are learning I have come across in Qi Gong classes (at Renascent) but this course of cementing my understanding and filling in a few blanks
Daryll’s serious yet lighthearted approach. Liked: techniques to stimulate kidney Qi and activate Qi, overall – really enjoyed the learning experience, I believe I felt lighter and more energetic. Also been smelling a scent of burning wood.
Daryll – I enjoyed learning Qi Gong from you. Thank you for your generosity in starting me on this journey
I learnt to need to be persistent
I previously did not know much of this topic. I found the level of teaching to be of very high professional standards, yet this was done in a fun, relaxed & welcoming manner. My first day allowed me to feel comfortable & very welcomed. I gained so much from this course and although I will take time to master all the back up I may need to do. This is offered and readily available. Lesley has made me feel at ease in being accepted and welcomed. I was not sure I would manage sitting for so long with pain I have, but believed after this first day I am now in control and I don’t accept my pain any more.
I have to state that all the Renascent girls are warm, caring and very welcoming too.
Daryll is a first class presenter, much respected, excellent venue. I feel priviledged to have taken part in this. For the last month or so I have had a blocked ear, since doing the ear healing – this has gone
The teachings were detailed & very entertaining. Daryll’s humour was most refreshing. His connection to Gods energy was very evident and strong. Thank you for this opportunity. I am most grateful as this will help me to continue my studies of Qi Gong.
Thank you for your time & energy
Love & light
Very entertaining, kept interested, loved all the energy & experiences I received over my courses – looking forward to lookingat my learnings and practicing watching the changes. Daryll did well to maintain his patience with draining students who wanted personal consultations throughout the sessions
I hope you are well.
Just to let you know I've posted off the Crystal Light Balancing work papers off to you. They are coming to you standard post so they should be with you in about a week. Can you let me know when you get them so I know they've arrived safely!
Also, I must comment on the WuJi Qi Gong DVD. I've never done Qi Gong before, and as an introduction to it through the WuJi style I love it! I feel fantastic after completing the 'real time' session and now practice every day - try stopping me! As Daryll mentions on the DVD I can feel the Qi radiating from me, and Í must say my chakras are flowing so smoothly and widely after a session. I just thought you might like the feed back!
Have a great day Lesley,
love and light

Thanks for the update. I wanted to let you know how happy I am with the Chi disc I ordered some time ago. I used it get headaches and sore throats whenever I sat in front of a computer, but since I've been wearing the disc--no more! I'll probably order the chi energy cremes in the near future as a Xmas gift to myself! Take care and be well.

Please thank Daryll for sending me the Qi gong techniques ,I have tried them with several clients at work - not only do they seem to ease the pain but also to increase their flexibility and mobility.

Hi Daryl, Just wanted to email you a very big thank-you.
I really didn’t want the course to end on two days (not that I didnt want to see my family) so I cant wait to do the next stage. It is a good idea to have that break though, so everything sinks in.
I have always marveled at Robyn as I have been seeing her from pretty much when she started doing it also.
Even if my poor but very helpful husband ran from pillar to post with 2 games of basketball, basketball training, 2 birthday parties, a karate belt grading and he still managed to do 4 loads of washing, paint our laundry (ceiling& 2 coats on walls) vacuum and help my son with his homework.
I was very grateful to then let me practice on him!
It helps a lot to do these kind of things when you have some one to support you, doesn’t it! I didn’t even mind to come home to 1 slice of pizza!
So thank you for your worldly knowledge, profound wisdom and positive energy and I mean that from the bottom of my heart to the top of my very vitalized brain!
see you in a few weeks, looking forward to it already
Series of events 2008
I have studied for the past ten years mainly with international teachers. Rosie came to me one day and asked what I thought about your classes,I didn’t know anything but said I would come along for the holiday and as a bit of a refresher/ information gathering but……….. .I was delighted to find new knowledge from well educated lectures with comprehensive subject knowledge in both scientific and esoteric information. I feel blessed to have been a student and would not hesitate to recommend the courses. You are both inspirational universal light workers! What more can I say? I wish love and light to you both. Louise Parkinson.2008.
Thank you both for the help you gave me. I noticed in your email you discreetly mentioned me. Can you imagine me sliding down the banister, maybe not. You both gave me the inspiration to push my boundaries. Everything was a bonus for me to have such wonderful people around all the time. When I climbed the stairs some times all 57 of them, I started to sing climb very mountain. I couldn't sing and get up the steps at the same time. It was surprising how many people past me and they sang the song for me. That song became a token of what I was doing, or trying to do. The song mentions about following your dream. I think that would apply to many who were with us. I have noticed the change in 3 of our group since we arrived back. There is one who I don't think she realises it but she hasn't changed. I know that is her privilege, but I think it is such a shame for anyone not to think out side the square they live in after being in such a spiritual place with spiritual people.
Thank you again

"I have been part of the weekly Qigong classes for Women for a number of years now. I have noticed that my energy levels have increased and the classes leave me feeling more balanced and in tune with my body. Daryll is a wonderful Qi Master - the classes are interesting, easy to follow and we always have a good laugh." Audrey Lynikas
