The Sedona method is a tool, in my view, which does not replace professional help. Personally, I have found it helpful, as have others for "processing" emotions/feelings. I have also had no use for "advanced 7 day seminars" "weekend retreats" and given up on the quest of owning a "$400 course." I came across the method after years spent frustrated, trying t

There did appear to be some trappings of eastern religion when I did Aikido. They did not try to keep me from leaving when I stopped going to the dojo, so it is not cult like in this regard; they were pretty loose with membership regulations.

Hi formerreleaser, it is good to see you on these forums. I heard that the Sedona Method and Release Technique organizations are sales apparatuses and lack integrity, twisting the truth to manipulate secular suckers into buying a spiritual technique in order to gain in their lives. I also heard that while the above is true, the technique itself can be a valuable asset to a balanced life and

Rick Ross Forums are a good example of not a cult because they charge no money, they do not wish to control members' lives, and you are free to leave at any time :)

Sparrow> interesting observation about the 'fruits' of Neil Strauss' fake personae. In pickup it always felt like I was trying to BS my way through life because I was worthless on the inside. I studied seduction for 2 years and it never worked (Ha ha!). I kept sinking deeper into depression and was getting more and more paranoid and more afraid to even be around, let alone ta

rrmoderator, no offense intended. I call it like I see it. The point I'm trying to make regardless of what detractors of the method claim is that it is working for me. I can do things I couldn't do before due to fear, anger, or even laziness. I don't have to run from my feelings anymore. They're just feelings now that I have a way to deal with them. It's that simple.

Thanks for noticing my ID. Disconnect is a song from the hit game "In the Groove" which I used to play a lot. I've never been to a Sedona seminar. I bought the book for $17 at a book store, and enjoy using the method. It works for me in my daily life, and I am grateful I found it. Ellen, you called the Sedona Method a "mind-numbing and stupifying, covertly orchestrated

I am sorry for your respective losses and can understand your resentments. My dad went to a jazz camp when I was a boy and met a woman there who was his 'music' partner. It became an affair and eventually he divorced my mother and married the new woman. In this situation, I feel that if that is the way he is, my mom is probably better off without him, no matter how bad it hurt her in th

It would be nice if people were more friendly towards each other, whether or not we agree. It seems to me that being polite could be more than a selective sometimes job. If being polite indeed lubricates society, I would begin with oppositional people. I haven't released on 100.000k because I was afraid it wouldn't work. What if our friend every_day was telling the truth? You do n

If you're considering ending it all please seek licensed medical professional. There is a great resource at Or you can directly call the hotline at 1-800-784-2433 I am assuming these are people who are either very compassionate, or have been suicidal themselves in the past. The releasing techniques seem to benefit enormously from building momentum with little stuff. Also you can build

I've never been too convinced one way or the other on the God issue. On one hand I want to believe, and on the other I feel worried it's just another lame letdown in a long series of frauds (Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, etc). I suppose, though, it wouldn't hurt to see the lighter sides of the things I despise along with the dark. One thing I temporarily gained with the Sedona met

We were examining the similarities and differences between these two books, and we found quite a number of ways in which they correlate and are useful to be read in tandem.

If you enjoy this book, you might find value in The Lucifer Principal by Howard Bloom. In it, he dissects why what we call "evil" or "ego" is just our natural animal instincts. This also includes details on human social dynamics, and an overview of how groups of humans operate as super-organisms, including the entire human race. It as well gives insight into the nature and for

Quoteelena Please state the exact claim you want scientific data to back up. We're all familiar with Milgram, Festinger, and Zimbardo here. Are you? Also, Cialdini's "Influence" is a good basic text on the subject.

Is there any scientific data backing up these claims? Many of us have trouble believing pseudo-psychology like "Covert Persuasion" is effective without some kind of proof.

I began posting here because people wanted to know if the Sedona Method was valid. My current position is clear: The Sedona Method is incredibly positive and helpful regardless of any shady new-age aspects. I completely turned my life around using it, and have observed others do likewise. However, I see that not a single one of us is infallible, and we all "sin" from time to time. I

And some of us take the Bible literally and seriously, like it's not a great metaphor :) It sounds to me like we've all been burned by a false teacher at some time. It's really sad to see that even people with the best intentions miss the mark. But certainly I never miss the mark. It's them. It's those anti-cult people or it's the people in the cults.

Sedona Method itself doesn't actually do anything. My experience this past year with Sedona Method has been 100% in my mind. I use the release questions as a vehicle of personal discovery. I enjoy uncovering different aspects of my life and my mind. I've experienced great success using it, and that's not all in my head. Friends have been commenting on many marked improvements in my
