"I can not
remember time when people did not make me feel very nervous. I have
seen psychotherapists since I was very young, but never to be
“cured”. I have always been told my “anxiety disorder” was either a
genetic defect, or an inherent personality trait, to be “managed.” I
have never been quite what I consider a fully functioning person
because of this. I would describe myself as a “shut in”', difficult
to hold down a job, make friends, or even buy something from the
store. This, I have been told, is typical of “moderate” cases, like
my own. Apparently there are thousands of people who suffer like
that, or worse, for no apparent reason. And it cannot be cured. Only
“managed”. When I met Mark for the first session, I had some
prejudice, and I was not expecting much to happen.
last of my three sessions with Mark, I simply no longer fear
“others” as foreign or separate beings. It is not that I can "manage
my symptoms" better, or decrease the intensity of the feelings by
"applying positive self talk or imagery" or some rubbish like that.
It is simple that the tension and nervousness which I believed
defined my character as individual, every day of my life is gone.
Just gone. Gone as though it had been a very big misunderstanding,
like a belief in the Easter Bunny, perhaps. This is remarkable to
me, since I believed myself to be a constitutionally tense and
disagreeable person all my life. I believe Root Coaching is the most
truly effective healing I have ever experienced. There was an
immediate improvement on my ability to control my mind after the
first session, and the effects of each session accumulate, as deeper
levels of a problem can be cleared off.
negative emotions regarding a problem “discharge”, that is exactly
how it feels. All the tension I used to feel was like a strong
electrical charge, and during the session it was allowed to flow
out. I am now able to maintain an expanded awareness in situations
where the emotional pain would have driven me deep inside my head,
only a few weeks ago. It is difficult to describe the experience of
a Root session, and I could not compare it to anything I have
experienced before. Certainly it is not like a trip to the
psychologist. It does not depend on the Root coach telling you
something, nor does it depend on you believing anything you are
told. It does not revolve around talking about the problem,
theorizing about it, or solving it. It dissolves the problem. The
result is a state of pure awareness about the basic nature of the
issue, where the emotional charge and mental confusions sustaining
the difficulty, simply come off. This state of understanding is
direct and does not need to be explained once you have experienced
it. I have spent many hours sitting in meditation to achieve a very
temporary state half as deep, as what a single Root session brought
me to. The effects are stable and continue to unfold themselves in
the days and weeks following a session. The immediate relief, as
well, is very profound. Root Coaching is excellent. Whatever the
difficulty, I would recommend at least one session, as it must be
experienced. No explanation or testimonial will do justice.
My only regret
would be that I was not able to experience this much sooner. It
would have been of tremendous benefit to my present self."

Hatte vor, Dir
gestern schon ein feedback auf unsere "Premiere" zu geben. Aber
weisst Du was? Ich war wie im Koma und habe fast nur gepennt.
Heute bin ich
wieder "funktionstüchtig" und möchte Dir schreiben, was da für ein
seltsamer "afterglow" war.
Also ich habe
nach der session noch schnell was erledigt und wollte noch ein paar
Sachen tun. Aber - wow - ich bin sowas von müde und irgendwie
halbwegs bewusstlos geworden (aber ohne Schwindelgefühl und schwarz
vor den Augen), dass ich nur noch gepennt - und nicht jugendfrei
geträumt habe - grins. Dann wurde ich mal wach und hatte einen
Bäääärenhunger. Ich hätte einen halben Ochsen fressen können (was
ich dann auch tat, ohne viel übrig zu lassen). Und dann wieder
schlafen und schlafen. Sowas habe ich noch nie erlebt. Ich hab's
aber einfach gemacht, ohne darüber nachzudenken. Wäre dazu auch gar
nicht in der Lage gewesen. Und obwohl das sehr strange war, hat es
sich nicht "verkehrt" angefühlt. Ich verstehe es zwar nicht, aber es
hat sich "richtig" angefühlt.
Und heute, als
ich aufstand, mein Zeug machte und zur Arbeit fuhr, da war alles
ruhig. "Peace of Mind", das trifft es am besten.
Ach noch was.
Ich verstehe jetzt, wie Du das meinst hinsichtlich charge und dass
Du nur "hinter der charge her bist" ... Es ist so super, nicht nach
Bedeutung zu gehen. Meine Rübe ist voll von Bedeutungen, ohne dass
es was Wesentliches bringt. Und im processing sind die "stories" (Bedeutung)
vielleicht spannend, dramatisch und weiss der Geier. Aber sie sind
nicht dafür geeignet, irgendwas in Ordnung zu bringen. Nach der
session mit Dir würde ich sogar sagen, dass selbst eine Erkenntnis,
die man aus der Bedeutung oder dem Inhalt eines incidents zieht,
nicht wirklich was bewirkt im Sinne von "case erase". Ich musste ja
noch nicht mal einen incident erzählen. Aaach wie schön. Nur die
Gefühle. Das ist erstaunlich. Und das Seltsame ist, dass ich "Peace
of Mind" fühlte (und noch fühle), ohne, dass wir mit Mind-Inhalten
Liebe Grüsse und
nochmals vielen Dank!
A session with a woman
who had been born with only one hand
This woman has
been born with only one hand.
She had no actual problem - but I nevertheless suggested at one
point to take this up. She said, she wouldn't have thought about
that, but was willing to go along.
We found quite a
few secondary gains – and there was some laughter, when she said:
"It helps me not to be bothered by men"…
We then took up
We had to go through quite a few emotions until `fear' came up, the
fear to lose the good arm and then to be helpless and perhaps die.
There was no
sadness coming up.
So I told her to
hold the stump of the missing hand with her right hand and feel the
feeling. And the sadness came. Very strong.
She then said, that the sadness was in her arm stump – and I asked
her to ask her arm stump why it was sad.
"Because it cannot help me"….. (I knew this answer before, that's
why I told
her to ask).
A lot to discharge here.
Then I asked her to feel the sadness of her parents, in re to the
fact that she has only one hand – and there was a huge amount of
charge there – which did bleed out.
We then also had a lot to discharge on the anxiety that she had all
the time to be in a strategic battle to make everything work with
one hand and to be able to have her one hand free to defend herself
when needed. She said, that this was very profound, but she hadn't
be aware if it at all.
So we got all the feelings.
I then checked
the R-Complex – and we looked how a little animal would behave, if
it was born with only one hand. And we came to the conclusion, it
would not care.
She said: 'it's wurst' – and laughed a lot.
Then we looked
at which Cellular Brain Response was activated in regard to that –
and it was obviously the `FIND" – which had quite some charge on it.
It felt like a
very good action.
An interesting session
The client had
had a sport accident – he had been hit on his nose and he went
The accident happened many decades ago - and he forgot about it –
but a few years ago it came back and has bothered him a lot since
We did some Root Coaching and got a lot of 2ndary gains.
Then we went to the feelings connected, same thing: a lot of
feelings, a lot of charge did bleed out.
Then the feeling of ‘being trapped’ came up.
We were discharging this ‘gut-feeling’ – when the client said: “I
really feel trapped in this body…”
HO, HO, HO - STOP – RED LIGHT: the client was not running the
body-line, he was running the spirit line!
How can a body feel trapped in a body?
How can we switch off the body’s wrongly, permanently triggered
‘instinct-energy’ when we process the spirit?
This does not work.
So I firmly redirected the client and asked him to feel not how he
felt, but how the body felt.
And of course the body felt STOP (being hit unconscious….) . It did
stop anything not directly related to survival, which is FREEZE on
the Cellular Response level.
We discharged this – a lot of charge on it – and then the client
said: “I have the feeling my body (this region) did never wake up
again from this blow”,
We went back to the somatic, which did bleed out, then a somatic on
the skull, on the neck, on the shoulders, etc. came up, and several
somatics as the body did wake up again in this area. And we did
bleed off all these somatics and at the end had all somatics gone,
and no pain anymore.
The session lasted a bit more than 3 hours (which is very long for
ROOT COACHING) – and the client was practically line charging
(laughing and blowing charge) all the time.
So: there can be A LOT OF CHARGE and you have to take the time it
But then you have REALLY done something for the client.
This week I had two
sessions with Mark.
I have a lot of
experience with processing, but it seems to me that, so far, I most
of the time ran the “spirit point of view” in processing, and did
everything I could to avoid the “body point of view” whenever that
I was generally
interested in spiritual, and had an approach that I don’t want to
waste my time to body related stuff. This, plus my pretty lousy
treatment of the body, like smoking, drinking, junk food, not enough
sleep, started to have consequences during the last year. I am 40
now. Well, I quit these unhealthy habits, but I have now to deal
with some consequences, like a problem with my prostate gland for
example. Health is the main reason why I became interested in body
things as well.
So, we did two
sessions with “Root Coaching”. When we processed my point of view, I
was quick to give answers, but when we switched to the body part of
the process, I even had difficulties to understand simple
instructions. That only shows my lack of experience in this area.
continued, and it is as if a new and untreated area opened up, and
some new layers of unconscious were treated.
In my opinion,
all methods need to have a justification for their existence, and
that justification should be in the fact that they give something
new that other methods don’t. Certainly, “Root Coaching” opened one
of my “blind spots”, which is running away from processing that
concerns the body, got me to recognize it, and that alone is a great
were really beneficial, and I had a number of cognitions, and I
definitely want to learn more and keep using it. ...
