Level 2 RPT: Re-Conception and Key Development Events

Level 2 RPT is our most popular course because it takes you on a unique journey that seems to turn the very concept of therapy inside out. On this course you will learn how to apply the RPT techniques (from Level 1) in innovative new ways to achieve extra-ordinary results. This is literally something unique – there are countless therapies in the world, but absolutely nothing like this.

The course is broken into four distinct sections which are best described separately:
* The Art of Re-Conception
* The Key Developmental Events Model
* The easy way to heal Birth Trauma
* The Journey of the Soul (a powerful metaphorical journey)

The Art of Re-Conception

Many aspects of our life, health, abundance, relationship patterns and more are written in stone (metaphorically) at the moment of our conception. The story of our conception (e.g. “dad didn’t want a baby” or “mum had a headache…”) forms a key part of our identity. The precise nature of the relationship between mum and dad – how they connect with each other – forms a blueprint for our life path.
In the Re-Conception we create an intuitive blueprint or map for how our parents connected with each other and how their dynamic related to your conception. The RPT tools (from Level 1) are then used to change this story. This means changing your conception blueprint.
The results from this process are remarkable. In fact we use this technique whenever a client has a problem that we can’t solve. If there’s a symptom with no known cause (especially if it’s tied up with their “story” of who they are), this is the technique to change it.

The Key Developmental Events Model

There are approximately 10 key moments that occur to every person around the time of conception. These processes are so “natural” that we never stop to think about them or their impact. These moments include ovulation, fertilisation and implantation. Because these processes are “normal” we assume they are perfect. However in fact tiny “micro-traumas” occur to the sperm and egg (and the fertilised zygote) during their journey. Whilst tiny, these micro-traumas create what are called epigenetic changes (they can switch genes on and off).
In simple words – the journey of the sperm and egg is a hidden part of your psychological and physiological make up. These are the hidden keys to your health and well-being.
Each of the developmental events opens the door to healing and changing a different part of your life. These doorways include:
* healing of sexual, emotional and physical abuse trauma;
* re-balancing of healthy levels of masculine and feminine characteristics;
* releasing parasitic behaviour patterns and protecting yourself against parasites (human or microbes);
* adjusting easily to rapid change and growth;
* no longer feeling a need to hide or be invisible in order to feel safe; and many more.

The best part about the Key Developmental Event (KDE) work is that we already know what the keys are. In every other therapy it’s necessary to spend hours digging to find the root causes of your problems. But with the KDE work, we already know the cause. The only question is “how profoundly are you able to change today?”

The easy way to heal Birth Trauma

The moment of birth is arguable the most defining moment in our physical existence. Although we may have no conscious memory of it, there’s no doubt that this moment had an impact on us. (If you doubt this, just consider: your first decisions or associations about the world – is it safe for me or not? – are made in this moment on a deep instinctive level.)
There are healing techniques devoted just to this question of healing birth trauma (e.g. “Re-birthing”). Generally these techniques require many sessions of heavy breathing techniques – some people find that the treatment is almost as traumatic as the original problem!
RPT provides an incredibly safe, gentle and easy way to heal the trauma of birth. The most important step is to transform your emotional state (as it is recorded in your body’s memory) just before, during and after the birth process.
Some of the most remarkable instant healing (including instant physical changes) that we have seen in RPT occurred immediately after using this gentle birth trauma release.

Journey of the Soul

The Journey of the Soul is a remarkable story that unlocks several key aspects of our personality. These include our ego and control issues, our sense of purpose (or Soul Purpose) and our ability to integrate into our physical body.
To some people the Soul is a vital part of the self, a spark of spiritual consciousness. Others regard it as an illusion or story. Either way (whether the journey of the soul is real or a metaphor), this exercise is a vital part of your self-development journey.
In the first phase of the journey we imagine the soul going back to where it came from, dissolving into nothingness (”like a drop of water falling into the ocean. You can remove a drop but you can never get the same drop back”). For many people this triggers intense ego and control issues.
In the second phase, we imagine the return journey – coming back from Oneness with a new sense of purpose. Many people don’t want to leave – triggering their feelings that they aren’t safe or wanted in this world, or that they don’t have a clear sense of purpose.
In the final phase, we witness the union of the soul and body. Many people live their lives either in the physical (disconnected from the soul and its purpose) or in the soul, struggling with the concept of a physical existence. In New Age literature this latter group are commonly called “Earth Angels.” Common symptoms include uncontrolled gain weight, financial difficulties and a tendency towards co-dependent relationships.
Using advanced RPT techniques we guide you through transforming all three parts of this journey. At the end you will feel very different. You will be able to let go of the unhealthy part of your ego, you will have a new sense of purpose and you will feel good about living a higher purpose within your physical form.

“Yogic Beingness: Why RPT is Yoga” (by Ben Ralston)

from :http://www.referencepointtherapy.com/blog/2010/03/yogic-beingness/

This wonderful article was written by RPT Teacher Ben Ralston, of the international Prem Center, in Slovenia. Ben, an Englishman, runs yoga retreats for international audiences, and is available for both yoga and RPT classes and sessions throughout Europe.

Ben continues our series on Beingness with this wonderful explanation of where Beingness fits within the Yogic tradition.

By Ben Ralston:

According to Yogic philosophy, the essence of a human being is ”Satchitananda”, meaning absolute existence, absolute knowledge, and absolute bliss.

In RPT terms this is what we call “the diamond”: perfect being-ness. When we drop all of our blockages, we shine as Satchitananda. [Editor’s note – the diamond metaphor is a teaching tool used in class. Simon will cover this in a blog article soon.]

To understand Satchitananda we break the word down into its component parts:

SAT – Absolute existence: means non-relative being. In other words, without beginning and without end; timeless; limitless; ubiquitous Being. It means I AM, and further, that there can be no ‘I am NOT’. Furthermore, it means that anything that follows the I AM (I am so and so, I am a builder, I am a man/woman, etc) is not true. Absolute existence means absolute truth, or truth that is not relative.

CHIT – Absolute knowledge: The Upanishads declare that all knowledge is in the self; that in fact, knowledge itself is the self. In fact, Vedanta literally translates as “the end of knowledge”.

To use the analogy of a radio transmitter: When you tune into the radio, the information which you hear is not in the antenna, or the radio itself, but all around you already, even before you tuned in, as radio waves – a form of energy. Similarly, all knowledge is energy, and can be tuned into – (this is called intuition) – if we know how. Since we are limitless beings, and made of pure consciousness, that knowledge is part of our own self – within.

ANANDA – Absolute bliss: bliss is a feeling of perfection, perfect happiness – that everything is just as it should be. It encompasses total joy, security, and contentment. You could say that it is the emotional state of the divine, although bliss is not an emotion, it is beyond emotion.

Taken together, these 3 qualities, which the yogic scriptures declare to be the essence of a human being, imply pure LOVE. When you experience yourself as omnipresent, omniscient bliss, what else is there to feel but love? This is the highest consciousness.

When this consciousness is experienced whilst maintaining an awareness of the individual self, it can be called Beingness.

This state can be experienced for just a second or two (for example whilst taking a deep breath and acknowledging) or it can be maintained for longer periods of time.

However, in the average person the subconscious vibrations, beliefs, and associations that are caused by trauma – either inherited or otherwise, obscure this state of perfection.

In yoga this obscuration is described as: the pure, or higher self (the experience of satchitananda) being conditioned by the mind (the small self, ego). When the pure self is unconditioned by the mind, it shines through as the experience of satchitananda. This, again, is the diamond – unobscured by the rock / dirt of trauma. This is freedom.

The word Yoga translates as Union. Another word for union might be coherence or cohesion. Specifically the word yoga refers to the union of the various aspects of ourselves.

In RPT (especially Level 3) we focus on the coherence of our minds – brain, heart, body, and so on. This relates to the enlightenment research from the Institute of Peak States (who call them ‘brains’ rather than minds or centers of awareness). Even calling them minds is to me a bit misleading. I ‘feel’ them as centers of awareness. It is the union of these centers that is a key goal of yoga, Reference Point Therapy and (I believe) Peak States of Consciousness.

Another way to put it is this:

The classical definition of (what is the process of) yoga is: YOGAS CHITTA VRITTI NIRODAHA, which means “yoga is the cessation of the modifications of the mind”. In other words, when the mind stops modifying our experience of reality we enter into the state of being that can be called yoga (union / cohesion) – or Beingness!

This is essentially the goal of RPT – to acknowledge and Be with our experiences (traumatic or otherwise), so the mind stops modifying them. Disease and dysfunction is, ultimately, just the symptom of what we avoid acknowledging.

The word Satsang literally means ‘in the company of truth’. Satsang is said to be one of the fastest ways to enlightenment. It means to be with someone who is already on a higher level of consciousness. When you are in that person’s company, their PRESENCE, their Beingness, is said to automatically raise your own consciousness.

This gives rise to emphasis, in Eastern traditions, on finding a Guru. The word Guru comes from ‘Ru’ – to lead / dispel – and ‘Gu’ – from darkness. A Guru is one who leads us out from the darkness, or dispels that darkness.

To me, RPT is the very process of removing subconscious blockages by making them conscious – or removing darkness by shining the light of awareness. And the higher the consciousness of the therapist (even if only for a moment whilst taking a deep breath) the more effective the therapy.

So you see, for me, RPT is yoga!

From Ben’s comments on the page in 2010:

“I did all three RPT courses less than 5 months ago, and witnessed a HUGE shift in my awareness. Am I enlightened yet – no. I am very much closer “uninterruptible and undisturbable sense of being”, Many things which disturbed my sense of peace and joy now bounce off me like the ‘proverbial’ water off a ducks back. AND, I witness day after day my clients reaching new levels of awareness, permanently. It really is that good
