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 Resolution┬« (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.

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.

What is your body really telling you? If you have hearing issues, your ears could be holding years of childhood shame from a constantly critical parent. Have you broken or sprained an ankle? You may have been exposed to an lack of emotional support between ages 3 and 5 — perhaps owing to parents divorcing, domestic violence, abuse from an alcoholic parent, or a consistent lack of nurturing – since ankles store trauma from that age of development. Rotator cuff and arm issues may reflect back-forth indecision about establishing or detaching from a relationship, whether it’s a romantic partner or putting mom in a nursing home. In this remarkable lecture, Brent Baum, developer of Holographic Memory Resolution, helps you understand how intimately the body is tied to our states of consciousness, and why physical pain is often the indicator of places where unresolved emotional pain is held. A significant portion of what we label “illness” is in fact a precise metaphorical expression of trauma, manifest in physical form, according to Brent. This physical disease serves to capture our attention so that we can bring resolution to the unfinished business of the subconscious mind, releasing both mind and body from pain. Join Brent tonight as he takes you on a fascinating walk through your own body, helps you examine its status in holding emotional trauma that may underlie physical issues, and provides guided instruction on how to release pain on all levels – for peace of mind, emotional balance, and physical health.
