Oist, thx for the insider info. By the way, how did you find this thread to post in? Please let us know if you can...
I agree with what you have said here, and accepting your emotions is step one of any proper therapy, and then modifying those emotions is the next step, and something like Cognitive Therapy gives many specific tools for this. Accepting is not enough.
As far as getting more of what we want from "releasing" from it, that is literally nonsensical.
Anyone who has not let go of their common sense realizes that to get something you have to take a BEHAVIOR to move you in that direction.
Of course, there are all sorts of psychological issues that could involved "releasing" or "letting go" and forgiving, etc, but these can be handled with a properly trained and licensed therapist.
Its clear Sedona is using junky philosophy and pseudo-psychology as a DEVICE to lure people into all these LGAT workshops to scoop lots of $ off them.
And as is mentioned, its not harmless...[b:738d83742f]that type of over-passivity and magical thinking can seriously damage a person's life, and thus make them more dependent on The Sedona people, thus creating a vicious cycle for the client[/b:738d83742f] and more money for Sedona.
Its clear that these types of "New Age" methods are harmful on balance to people, both psychologically and financially.
Probably a good "cure" for Sedona damage, might be to try out some very precise Behavior Therapy, to counteract the over-passivity.
However, accepting emotions rather than resisting them is not a new invention of the Sedona Method, it's a common psychological tool which most therapists will teach their clients...
I have not met anybody involved in the Sedona Method (Hale Dwoskin included despite what he teaches), who has got everything that they want simply from releasing on it. I have met people who have effectively used letting go of the blocks to getting the things that they want [i:738d83742f]and then taking the necessary actions in order to get them[/i:738d83742f]
