"(Rex is) a man of great wisdom with a free and
open mind to continue to learn how to make his and other people's
life the greatest it will be.
My experience coming to IDEA Seminars was something that took
me by pleasant surprise. Not one day went by without the sound
of laughter in the room and in me and I will carry that with me
forever. Everyday I noticed new things about myself and in the
past haven't focused on enough. The experience of meeting a group
of strangers and then becoming good friends is one of the greatest
feelings. I was able to be open and honest with myself and others
during my learning process! I noticed day by day it was harder
for me to see any bad things in anybody including people outside
our group. I'm very excited to use all the skills I have leaned
with that special someone in my life, my friends, my mother and
father, my co-workers, and everyone I meet. Thank you Rex and
Carolyn for all your kindness and being there to listen to me.

"(Rex is) a man who, in my opinion, has a great
insight to the needs of others. Because of his great compassion
for assisting other to make the changes that they want he can
tailor his presentation to fit those needs. Rex is a dynamic speaker
that can immediately recognize what it is that people need and
then give them the ability to achieve it for themselves. He is
constantly challenging you to think and grow and discover for
yourself those qualities to get what it is that you want.
When I first arrived at Cedar Valley for my first NLP training
I was expecting a traditional seminar - one where all the participants
just sat back and listened to the speaker. Maybe take some notes
and that's about it. What I experienced however, was beyond any
expectations that I had. Rex's style of training was so different
and refreshing from all the others. He helped mold our group into
one big happy bunch of people. He taught us how to have fun, and
that learning is fun. He helped me break free from many of the
paradigms that I had which were holding me back. Days went by
so quickly and as I am writing these words I still find it hard
to believe that we are at the 14th day. I have come a long way,
and look forward to going into the real world with all these powerful
tools and really making a difference.
My experience here has helped me discover myself and has continuously
pushed me to my limits and beyond. Rex doesn't just give you the
techniques and powerful skills, he challenges you to think about
them and to know what to do with them. My experience has been
more than words can describe. It was wonderful learning about
myself and always breaking down my limits to learn more about
how capable I really am. Thank you Rex and Carolyn."

"Rex is an excellent trainer. Rex is a good model
of NLP and accelerative learning. I appreciate Rex being available
completely during the training. I had a wonderful time participating
in IDEA Seminars training. Rex did an excellent job of presenting
the information in a way that made learning fun and easy. The
practice exercises were outstanding. The training was structured
in a way that allowed me to fully learn and to make some new friends.
The NLP training has given me new skills which I will be able
to use in my personal and professional life. I made changes in
myself while participating in the training and I am sure I will
continue to grow. The facility (Cedar Valley) was an excellent
place to conduct the training. The environment was peaceful and
scenic; this provided an atmosphere consistent with the learning.
Great music... Great trainers and participants...Great laughs!
Thanks for the WONDERFUL memories! Thanks Carolyn and Rex for
making this opportunity possible for me!"

"Rex runs a thoroughly organized program that
allows the participants to get the most they can from it. His
enthusiasm and energy are contagious. I discovered a lot about
myself, the small details of big issues just kept stacking up
until there was a bonfire of enthusiasm and joy."
Hamilton, Quality Control Engineer, Clinton, NC
"Rex is full of energy. He presents the material
in a way that it is extremely fun, yet powerful and easy to learn.
Rex truly cares about each and every participant and puts forth
the effort to nurture them.
This is a wonderful program for anyone who is seeking to dramatically
improve their interaction with other people and with themselves.
There is a wide variety of fantastic things to learn and a marvelous
collection of learning experiences. It's just not possible to
imagine any more higher level of energy and fun for learning which
is powerful, yet easy. This is not only an extremely enjoyable
program, but it is life enriching and fills everyone with energy
and a sense of total engagement in life."
Reitzel, Vice President, Cleveland, OH
"Rex was very generous with his time and he was
absolutely committed to the participants. I really enjoyed his
straightforward style. I felt he was committed to results. He
is a provocative trainer and teacher. He is able to ask new questions
and ask more of myself than I would. Rex is also available outside
of the class.
A whirlwind of wisdom! A great set of tools for living. The training
really fleshed out what I had only read about. It was like having
a fine pianist listen to you play, realize what you need and then
help you improve your skills. I was pleased by what a rich variety
of people showed up. The very interesting people I've met were
a source of great fun and insight. I'm really fortunate to have
had the opportunity to come and share the time with such wonderful
people. I was pleased to see how camaraderie and playfulness were
encouraged and how the Sikes fostered a welcome and accepting
environment. I am grateful for the individual attention to my
questions. I was also pleased to see how care was shown to my
values. What a great group of people! I was glad that during my
life I was able to associate with such remarkable people and to
share my life with them!"
Johnson, Student, Nashville, TN
"Rex is probably the most energetic and dedicated
teacher I've ever experienced... and he is very good at what he
does. This was a wonderful experience, a great experience. There
was a great atmosphere of teamwork and friendship amongst the
students. It's about designing yourself - what values, beliefs,
abilities, states (and how to access them) you want to have, and
not about relying on your past. It's also about having better
control of your body, voice and mind. The staff was always friendly
and helpful. Rex is an excellent teacher and he is very good at
teaching NLP, not just for therapy, but for all areas of your
life. He knows how to build team spirit among students. It was
fun! Now I'm confident I have the necessary building blocks to
be able to use NLP, and it's up to me!"

"Rex is extremely knowledgeable and talented
... he's here to stretch us, push us, and help us realize how
great we can be if we just put our minds to it. After having read
many books and listened to many tape series, I finally experienced
the real thing. Immersing yourself in IDEA Seminars' 14 day training
is not only fun, it's life-changing. I thought I understood a
lot about NLP, but now I realize I've just begun to scrape the
tip of the iceberg. I never knew life could be so exciting; that
I could get out of bed and feel incredible, every day! This taught
me things I couldn't learn in a book, and Rex does a wonderful
job of making learning fun and easy. I feel like life is a roller-coaster
and I'm just beginning to descend down the first hill - picking
up speed as I go along. I now realize I can do anything that I
desire and really enjoy doing it. This is the best investment
in myself I have ever made. I highly recommend training with Rex."

"Rex is an intelligent, dynamic, persuasive,
and friendly instructor who through his experiences and talents
pushes and motivates others to stretch their minds through modeling
him. The other trainers were also excellent. I could see that
they were well trained and had a vast amount of knowledge. The
interns were also experienced and well trained. There is so much
to say about Rex's NLP Practitioner training, the following is
only a brief summary. In reading books and listening to tapes,
one might get some knowledge about NLP but would be lacking a
very important factor. Practical experience allows a person to
incorporate the knowledge into oneself and make it part of oneself.
There is no substitute for this important factor. Practical experience
allows a person to incorporate the knowledge into oneself and
make it part of oneself. There is no substitute for this important
factor. This process of personal experience creates amazing changes
which can permanently effect a person's behavior, attitude, and
how a person functions in their interaction with other people
and with situations that occur. This seminar is highly recommended
to achieve a very intense personal growth."

"(Rex is) a piece of work! This program allows
you to look further outside and further within to make subtle
and amazing discoveries. IDEA Seminars could offer a double-your-money-back
guarantee with no takers, for the value received is ten times
