I was called to the Journey by my need to heal the gaping sores and exhaustion from a series of failed personal and business relationships. Surviving, but wounded, I was in dire need. My life was stuck on one unending plateau of drudgery, caught in a glass cage, chained to a treadmill. I did not know what the walls were made of, where the chains were tied. I just knew they were there.
I read dozens of books, attended multiple seminars, hired many personal coaches, studied many religious and spiritual approaches and still came away without an answer. Then I read Brandon Bays “The Journey”. My excuse for studying with the Journey was my desire to learn how to heal the mind part of the body-mind healing equation. My training as a Chiropractor was about healing the body. I thought the Journey training would teach me the tools to help the other half of the equation.
Little did I understand that the training would shatter my glass cage, sever the chains and make me a better doctor. And I lost weight too!
Learning the Journey process is to body-mind healing what learning to use tools is to a carpenter. Once schooled and skilled with a hammer, saw and a level a carpenter is free to build as he chooses. Once trained with the Journey processes you are free to open your life as deeply and completely as you choose. And freedom can be yours.
Central to the Journey process is the most powerful of all human abilities, forgiveness. The Journey is the only system that I have encountered that teaches the way to accomplish complete forgiveness elegantly and simply. And with forgiveness comes true humility and peace. It does not matter what your issue is, Journey processes, simple and elegant as they are, can restore your freedom and joy. They give you the power to open up, relax and receive the events of your life as non-threatening and non-destructive. You can take back control of your life.
The Journey is not about a pattern to follow, a guru to imitate, or a box in which you have to fit. These teachings are neither mysterious nor magical. Brandon Bays has clearly and fully described them in her beautiful book, The Journey.
