Today I drove home after work, cruising across the Golden Gate Bridge toward the rolling hills of Marin County, and the sun was breaking through, and the Bay was shimmering. I could see Tiburon from there and started thinking about the upcoming National Retreat . . . Trainers will be coming into town, and this our 7th year of national meetings and a weekend of celebration and important moments seems like the most important one.
The discovery of survival circuits, how to identify them and reconsolidate them has been the missing link in the method, and the retreat will be a time for everyone to learn how to break these circuits. Today in a group at UCSF, we tackled them, and then tonight in a survival circuit group aimed at weight loss and clipping the cords to sugar addiction we did, too. The stunning work of Jeffrey Schwartz from UCLA contributed to this based on his work with OCD. So did Elizabeth Phelps from New York University, but it’s a great time to be alive, and have the power to arouse circuits of your choosing, and, then go about the business of weakening and breaking then. I hope you will be joining us for our most exciting retreat ever!
