Reclaim Your Right to a Joyful and Productive Life

Fri., June 16 to Sun., June 18
9:30 AM to 5 PM
$550, members $495

25 CEUs approved for MSW, LCPC and MFT in Illinois.All of us would like to be freed from the emotional constraints of the past. Traumas bind us to people, places and events that continue to exact a toll on our energy and concentration. When we think about a past trauma or memory, our body recreates all the emotions and biochemistry of the original event, keeping us relentlessly stuck in the past. But we can indeed liberate ourselves from these restrictive chains to the past and reclaim our right to a fulfilling life with Holographic Memory ResolutionĀ® (HMR). In the Healing Intensive workshop, you will gain an understanding of and personally experience the effectiveness of HMR as a gentle, non-intrusive approach to treating and resolving your burden of trauma. You will have the opportunity to release lingering negativity from these events, regain peace of mind, and restore emotional balance, enabling you to move forward into the life you really want. In this profoundly healing workshop, Brent Baum will guide a small group of people on their personal healing journey as they experience and observe the HMR process within a safe and intimate environment. Enrollment is limited, please register early. Tuition is $500 (members, $450) with a $250 deposit. This workshop is open to all, but is required for those training in HMR certification. Coming in from out of town? Get 15% off at the Hotel Blake, call Raymond Cline at (312) 986-1234 and ask for the Equilibrium Preferred Rate.

Please call Brent Baum’s assistant Beverly Meland at (224) 558-4342 to register for this workshop.



Holographic Memory Resolution® (HMR) is a remarkable technique that efficiently, painlessly and permanently resolves emotional blocks that may be preventing the full enjoyment of a healthy, fulfilling and abundant life.

HMR® was developed by trauma resolution specialist Brent Baum over 15 years, working with more than 11,000 trauma survivors from the Oklahoma City bombing, the terrorist attack on 9/11, victims of sexual abuse, torture and more.

Our bodies have natural protective mechanisms that create an altered state of consciousness when we suffer stress and trauma, “capturing” and preserving the pain as a protective act. Painful experiences are stored in our subconscious and our body until we feel safe and ready to deal with them. However, the longer we let them go, the more likely they are to create physical problems as well as emotionally distorted ways of viewing and acting in the world – perceptions we often aren’t even aware of that hold us back from living authentically and maintaining a calm and peaceful state of mind.

HMR® is a body-mind technique that allows simple, easy access to past memories and the release and resolution of associated painful emotions, without having to re-live them. The technique begins with energy work, inducing a light meditative trance that allows the conscious mind to relax and that gently opens a very safe window into the subconscious. Guided visualization creates a self-healing process that reveals the history of a problem, pattern or illness, and resolves the attached emotions. Concluding energy work “locks in” positive changes to the subconscious, the body, and the energy field.

The client directs the healing at all times, choosing what he or she would like to address and resolve – physical issues, obsessive thoughts, recurring troublesome emotions. The process is profoundly empowering to clients, who often feel released from problems that may have been plaguing them for decades, and who start seeing the world and their life in a new and confident way.

“Introduction to HMR”


“Seven Breakthroughs in Resolving Trauma”



with Brent Baum

Thurs., June 15
6 to 8 PM

Research is proving what a complex, remarkable interrelationship our memory and our body have, and the implications for healing pain. When we think about something traumatic that happened to us, our body immediately recreates the exact state of physical tension and the exact emotional brainwave pattern we had at the original event — the body remembers it forever. The body can store these events anywhere in us — it has 1,000 neurons per square inch in our body to choose from. And the body alone has the inner wisdom to track the complete, perfect historical network of all the memories stored as a result of traumatic, overwhelming or negative events we endured. In this richly informative and empowering free lecture, Brent Baum, developer of Holographic Memory Resolution, explains these breakthroughs, their implications for healing both physical and emotional pain, and how we can move forward to live freely and fully in the present. Brent will share practical tools and techniques you can use immediately to help release these events from your body-mind and regain peace of mind, restore balance, and release physical and emotional pain.Space is limited, registration is required.

Through personal work with over 12,000 trauma survivors, Brent Baum has developed innovative strategies for unlocking our innate power to free ourselves from the constraints of the past to live fully in the present. Trained as an archaeologist, a Catholic priest, an addictions counselor, clinical hypnotherapist and trauma specialist, this gifted therapist and teacher developed Holographic Memory Resolution, a process for empowering us to release trauma and the obstacles to authentic spiritual intimacy and conscious manifestation. The effectiveness of this body-centered, client-centered approach led to his involvement with the rescue personnel from the Oklahoma City bombing, the crisis team members from TWA Flight 800 in New York, survivors and rescue personnel from the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2001, and those impacted by Hurricane Katrina. He is one of a select group of alternative health practitioners at Miraval: Life in Balance, and maintains a private practice in Tucson, AZ. Brent teaches his approach internationally, conducting lectures, workshops and retreats throughout the world.
