When my children were very young, I found myself in a steadily deteriorating relationship, and so I went for psychiatric help, as I could not resolve my situation alone. With that help and with my developing spiritual understanding, I did my best to use the situation to make myself better: a crucible if you will! (I am certain that my “ex” has a completely different view of this time!!) A childhood trauma was triggered when my girls were 4 and 6, and so my search for healing was intensified, knowing it must affect every part of me in ways that I could never fully understand consciously. I went back to my psychiatrist who was not able to help me, but referred me to hands on healers, a very wise man!
I threw myself headlong into a variety of workshops and techniques where everyone around me was processing their old pain, apparently successfully- except me! I was even a failure at getting better it seemed! The “better” I was becoming, the worse my marriage seemed to get, and so the inevitable life of the single mother became a reality the year my children turned 8 and 10.
Before the 23 year marriage ended I had been drawn to take training with a man named Roger La Chance whose work changed names over the years from the Unicorn Method to Release Work. I was the first practitioner to bring Roger’s work to Canada and certified over a hundred people in his method as practitioners and teachers. I also served on the Board of Directors of his newly formed International Release Worker’s Association.However, as my own experience and knowledge grew, that organization could not contain my inquiring, independent creativity.
I realized finally that it was time for me to take responsibility for my own gifts which were rapidly unfolding and to start teaching and sharing my own discoveries.
I discovered that I had the gift of “ignorance”. Because of not having formal degrees in any scientific or medical fields, I was free to ask questions that others were too conditioned not to ask as the answers were already “known” and accepted as the only reality in the paradigm of the time. The answers that I was getting in my “labs” of private sessions and workshops combined to surprise even me in their profundity!
I can honestly say that most of what I have learned in this field has been given to me by my clients and students, in process together. When I first started giving workshops, I felt that I should be paying participants for their knowledge instead of the other way around!
Well, it appears that I have the gift to be able to ask the right questions around the inter-relationship of information, some of which has been known for a long time and other, new research and discoveries in a variety of fields. I have then integrated this information as I have observed its effectiveness (or not) and reduced it all to a simple essence that has an amazingly profound affect.
The seven steps that are currently the distillation of 30 years of refinement are continuously in process and always evolving with every workshop I teach and every new scientific and medical discovery that reaches me.
Teaching concepts, I also provide a dialogue template for the beginning level student who may or may not choose to continue to be a facilitator.
This enables everyone, no matter what their background, to read off the sheet to someone with an issue, to help resolve that permanently for most people, without either party having to believe in the technique.
I find that remarkable!
That makes the possibilities very exciting to me!!
The hope and expectation of continuing students is that they will take the concepts and make the process their own by personalizing the dialogue, adapting and integrating the process with whomever they are and whatever they already do.
The name of this work has also changed and evolved over time, originally Body Mind Magic, eventually, Inner Resonance Technologies.
And so the journey continues…
