Many people when presented with a new technique have one or more of these reactions, and with great reason; there are a lot of techniques out there who don’t work as well as they claim to after the initial “high” you get at the course and a few that work but are mostly either reserved for psychologists and/or don’t have the 95% rate of success that RPT can proudly boast.
RPT is different and you don’t have to take my word for it, try a session with its founder Simon Rose or another RPT practitioner before committing to the course in October if you have a specific issue, if you are interested or just curious.
“But I don’t want to spend money to find out if it’s good or not!”
I have been in your position many times with different therapies! So what did I do?
I researched them and I looked whether the science behind them was sound or if it was just mumbo-jumbo based on ideas that were not backed by the latest scientific discoveries.
RPT is based first and foremost on sound biology, and focuses on deactivating the instincts that were triggered in the moment a trauma occurred and discharging it. Most animals have a natural instinct to do that just after the trauma, but unfortunately human beings have mostly lost that. (read Waking the Tiger by Peter Levine for more info on survival instincts and their role in trauma)
Have you ever seen how a gazelle shakes when she feels safe after escaping a lion? Sometimes this mechanism kicks in in us too but whenever it happens we tend to tell the person to “calm down ” to stop shaking and we are blocking this natural mechanism that is trying to rebalance us.
It is also based on the groundbreaking theory of the Institute of Peak States, but it doesn’t use their methods, which for the most part are experimental and for few selected therapists, (and the only one that is public, WHH is in my experience retraumatizing)
RPT heals in Level 2 10 points during gestation and birth and the trauma therein that have a profound effect on our life and that can spawn thousands of beliefs and attitudes and approaches about life.
It also addresses the secondary gains, the often unconscious reasons a person keeps their problems even though consciously they want to heal. Other therapies do that, but the way RPT does it is much faster and effective than even energy therapies like EFT which may take a full session to get rid of secondary gains, while in RPT that can be done in minutes and the rest of the session is about getting rid of the issue that needs healing. (although sometimes, when the secondary gains are healed the problem goes away by itself)
It also works on physical issues that are caused by emotional problems and stuck instincts, and it ties with metamedicine with this, but as said before it does that in a much faster way than other techniques.
There are a few therapies out there that focus on trauma, but in my research I know of only two that are fast and effective: EMDR and TRE. EMDR unfortunately I don’t know much about besides the fact that the technique works with the ocular movements, I have honestly never tried it, but it has the huge drawback that it’s only available to psychotherapists, a layperson can’t learn it and use it by themselves. I have no idea whether that is a question of safety or not, but in RPT after the course even a layperson with no experience at all can use the trauma release for themselves and for others.
For the psychologists and psychiatrists out there who already use EMDR and are getting good results with it I ask a few questions to which I don’t know the answer:
Does it work 95% of the time?
Wouldn’t you like to have another tool at your disposal to use when EMDR just doesn’t do the job?
Does it work on prenatal and ancestral trauma?
If you have a client with let’s say abuse, do you have to work on each trauma one by one or can you clear them all in one go?
With RPT you CAN clear for instance all the abuse traumas in one go by working on a specific point in early gestation, and then all the following abuse traumas lose charge, completely and permanently. RPT does work on prenatal and ancestral trauma and it works 95% of the time, even with physical issues caused by traumas.
TRE is another effective therapy for trauma, and I have tried it. In my own experience unlike RPT it can retraumatize, and also you cannot choose what to work on.
If you want to get some more info on the science behind RPT Rapid Personal Transformation and on the early development when it was called Reference Point Therapy, you an look at the old blog where you can find great info on theory and also some early practice http://www.referencepointtherapy.com/blog/ Great as it was back in 2009, much has changed and improved and has been added to RPT.
If you want to regain resource states of joy, calm, peace, happiness, love that really last after the course and if you want an extraordinary tool for yourself and for your family and clients join us!
The course will take place in October 2018

Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinuses.
It can be triggered by allergies or infection and is chronic and long-lasting in some individuals
Stuffy sinuses are plaguing you, and you just want to lie down and not deal with anything!
Substances such as chlorine in the pool can trigger chronic sinusitis. Food intolerances are insidious:
you might need to be desensitized to your favorite cereal!
Did you realize that sinusitis could also have something to do with other aspects of your life?
Frustration with the kids – “Leave your sister alone!”
Anger with your boss – ”Where is my raise?”
Being overwhelmed by divorce – ”The car too?”
Inability to face your parents -”C’s make degrees.”
Birth of a big baby – ”Oweeee!
Back injury – ”Why did we move the piano ourselves?
Techniques used in BodyTalk address specific pockets of infection in the nooks and crannies of your cavernous sinuses to break the cycle of re-infection and get you back to more optimal health.
Your pelvic bones, in BodyTalk, relate to the cheekbones that protect your sinuses.
If you’ve given birth, or been in a car accident and damaged your pelvis, this could be causing your sinusitis!
In BodyTalk, which views the person from a more wholistic perspective, we may address the pelvic bones and as a result your sinusitis
will also improve. The focus of your session may not be on the sinuses themselves!
BodyTalk is Whole Healthcare:
The BodyTalk System is designed to address the “whole person”. This means that no aspect of the human experience can be overlooked, whether it is emotional, physical or environmental.
BodyTalk was developed as a whole-healthcare system that supports and promotes the wellbeing of any person, animal, or plant.
As WholeHealthcare, BodyTalk understands the profound influence the psychology of the body has on our health. Instead of focusing on the symptom,
BodyTalk finds the underlying causes of illness by addressing the whole-person and their unique-story

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
