Instead, you are guided through a process of self discovery that is direct and experiential, allowing you to tap into a deeper realm of your being without anything getting in the way. It is an enlightening path to be on, one that starts from wherever you are now and evolves from there.

I am a health care professional. How can Life Process Transformation help me?

Many healing professionals are drawn to the ideas embodied by Life Process Transformation because they want to find new transformational practices for working with clients and patients. As they go through the Process, however, they quickly discover it has the power to change not only how they work, but also how they live.

That is because Life Process Transformation always begins with your self. You discover that the more you participate in your own inner work, the more you cultivate presence, intuition, insight, compassion, and resiliency in all that you do.

Many professionals also find they are drawn to seek out collaboration with other like-minded colleagues. It is as though, having connected to the power of their inner self, they recognize the great potential that arises from unifying around a shared vision of transformation—both for one's own life and for our world. For some the shift is so profound, they seek to become a Life Process Transformation therapist or educator themselves.

It starts with incorporating Life Process Transformation into your own life, and then, from there, evolving your practice.
