Who should learn the Sedona Method?
Anyone who has a sincere desire to grow and change their life for the better, or is ready to be free of all inner limitation, should learn how to release. There are benefits for almost everyone.
What will I learn?
You will learn that you are a lot more than you ever imagined.
What do I need to begin?
Just yourself and an open mind. For the home study programs you will also need a CD or DVD player and/or internet access for streaming and downloading from the digital library.
Why haven't I heard of the Sedona Method?
Until recently the only way to find out about us was to be on one of the direct mail lists we use or to know someone who's taken one of our seminars or bought a home study course. Now, we are reaching more and more people via the Internet and a national publicity campaign. There is a wise saying: "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." So, perhaps the reason you are just now finding out about it is that you are now ready for it.
How long have people practiced the Sedona Method?
The first class was held in 1974 in Sedona, Arizona. And since then, tens of thousand of people worldwide have experienced its benefits. Meet the people behind the Sedona Method.
How quickly will I see results?
From the very first day you put the Method into practice, you will start to see benefits, and the results increase dramatically over time. You will continue to see results as long as you use it, because, at a certain point, releasing becomes second nature. You can receive benefits from the Method throughout your entire life!
What can I expect to happen?
You can expect to feel much better, start making better decisions, be more in control of your life, have better relationships and, in general, have your life improve significantly. The specifics for each individual vary widely because each of us has our own unique experiences, goals and life circumstances. Once you discover how to release, your inner self begins to blossom in many exciting ways.
What real and immediate benefits can I expect?
Everything reported in our website is possible for you. The Method is a tool, and the more you use it, the more you will get out of it. Results vary depending on how much you put into it and how long-standing your issues are. Most graduates report feeling immediately calmer, happier and more alive, finding themselves much more effective in life.
Does it hurt?
Only when you laugh...no, seriously, releasing is a very uplifting experience that relieves you from the paths that would lead to pain, if not released. The effect of the Sedona Method is that you feel good, confident and at peace.
You’ve heard the expression “No pain, no gain.” How is it possible to truly release without dredging up and re-experiencing the pain from the past?
There is a place within each of us that is more “core” than just an array of memories making up our past—a calm place from which we can witness the events of our lives without being affected by them. When you learn to access this place, your past issues dissolve more easily as you bring them to awareness.
The Method will not only lead you toward being able to access this “place,” it will also clarify for you the basic underlying motivations that result in all the pain, suffering and discomfort you need to release in the first place. And it will, of course, provide you with the means of letting go of all that you discover as a result of your new understanding.
Will I get emotionally spent?
Some people have emotional releases but never to the point of being spent. That's because releasing is restorative rather than exhaustive. As you release, events which may have caused you emotional pain in the past and are continuing to cause you pain in the present are let go of. What remains is a peaceful feeling. It's really a very calming experience.
If this is so simple, why isn’t everyone doing it?
Actually, everyone does. Releasing is a perfectly natural experience, which everyone has benefited from at one time or another. The Sedona Method shows you how to put that experience under your own control so you can let go consistently, whenever you choose, rather than have it happen only by accident.
Can I become dependent on the Sedona Method?
Not at all. The Sedona Method frees you from your dependencies. That's what releasing is all about: Freedom.
Is this a religion, belief system, spiritual practice or brainwashing technique?
No. The Sedona Method is simply a technique to let go of unwanted feelings, emotions and everything else that is holding you back. It does not require any special beliefs or ideologies and is in harmony with all religions, belief systems and spiritual practices. The Sedona Method is actually the opposite of brainwashing.
How is this different than therapy, meditation or motivational tapes?
Although the goal of therapy is letting go of unwanted feelings and emotions, The Sedona Method gets you there without being dependent on going to a therapist week after week for months or years at a time. You don't need to talk to anyone to get results from the Sedona Method.
You meditate with your eyes closed and have to withdraw from the world to get results. And it often takes weeks, months, and even years to experience profound results. The Sedona Method achieves the same results and more in less time with an "eyes open" technique. Rather than withdrawing from the world you become more "involved" in the world. And because you can do it with your eyes open, you can release in the middle of any life circumstance, while it is happening, and before it has a chance to adversely affect you. Plus, you don't have to adhere to rules from any group or guru.
Motivational tapes are great when you are listening to them. But the effect doesn't last. You are depending on an external source for your motivation. The Sedona Method teaches you how to create/activate your own motivation and then tap into it whenever you feel the need. You don't need to follow anyone's orders but your own. In fact, you become your own best coach/teacher.
What other system is the Sedona Method like that I’d be familiar with?
The Sedona Method is like no other system that you’d be familiar with. It is truly unique. However, the feeling of release is something that you are definitely familiar with, even if you haven’t experienced it in a long time.
What if I have already done or am involved in therapy or other personal growth work? Can this still help me? People who have done a fair amount of personal growth work typically report that their insights and understanding of childhood wounding have only brought them so far. They report that the Method actually clarifies for them what they have been seeking all along: a calm, authentic sense of themselves, and a way to maintain this awareness easily. They feel like they have found the missing piece to the puzzle. It is equally true that Sedona graduates who have never done a day of therapy experience a profound transformation in the way they live their lives.
How do I know it will work for me?
How do you know it won’t, unless you give it a try? It has worked for many others just like you. There is every reason to believe it will work for you. Of course, it is you who must listen to the tapes or come to our seminar. It works for everyone who has a sincere desire to change or improve their life. And if you are one of the very few who doesn’t seem to click with this method, you are still at no risk because of our guarantees.
Will this help me recover from a life threatening disease?
The Sedona Method is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure any illness. If you need medical attention please consult with your medical practitioner. I think most practitioners will agree that being in tip-top emotional condition can only support whatever medical treatment you need and may mean the difference between success and failure.
What if I’m having trouble getting the results you promise?
If you need help, we are available to answer your questions and support you through your process.
