31 Dec: Hips and Horses – Heike Bettendorf (Is.30)

by Heike Bettendorf


In this case the author explores a combination of body work with regression therapy and applies personification[1] and energy work to include animals.

The client:  

In April 2015 a client came to me for body training after a hip replacement, which had been done on March 2015. The 51-year-old woman had decided to recover from her operation on the island of Fuerteventura.

She had been born with Perthes disease[2] (Orthoinfo, 2015). She was three years old when the diagnosis was made, and at first, she was not allowed to walk. At age four to five she had to wear an iron shell around the right leg and a five cm high special shoe on … Read the rest

01 Mar: Conversation with Disease or Affected Organs – Neeta Sharma Kumar(Is.28)

by Neeta Sharma Kumar

Conversation with disease or the affected organs (CWD) is an evolutionary approach to regression and past life regression therapy. This regression technique addresses the disease directly and precisely, thus reducing the number of sessions needed for healing processes. It also provides important insights into the cause and remedy of disease and illness. The author has presented a paper on this technique and conducted her workshop at World Congress for Regression Therapy 5 in Porto, Portugal.

The Genesis

In the author’s view all living things are made up of cells. Each cell is conscious and has ability to communicate. These cells are miniature humans and have all the cellular organelles which are equivalent to organs and tissues … Read the rest

01 Dec: Past-Life Scenes in Spiritual Emergence – David Edwards (Is.13)

by David Edwards, Ph.D.

David Edwards is a newcomer to our pages, and a welcome one. He documents a process of intensive altered states psychotherapy as he works through the difficulties his client, “Marian,” encounters on her road to growth. Using breathing and bodywork interventions, he accesses and processes past lives related to the spiritual crises Marian was facing in her life. Dr. Edwards examines some ideas from psychoanalytic theory as they may relate to past-life therapy and spiritual emergence.

I am indebted to “Marian” for giving permission for the use of the material of her psychotherapy as the substance of this paper.


Stanislav and Christina Grof use the concept of spiritual emergence to refer to intensive processes … Read the rest

01 Mar: Aspects of Past-Life Bodywork: Understanding Subtle Energy Fields Part I: Theory – Roger Woolger (Is.3)

by Roger J. Woolger


A striking aspect of much past-life therapy, when seen for the first time by an observer, is the obvious physical involvement of the client in the story that is being relived. In many sessions the client doesn’t just sit or lie passively recounting an inner vision of a past life with his or her eyes closed. Instead he or she may be subject to the most dramatic convulsions, contortions, heavings, and thrashings imaginable. One client may clutch his chest in apparent pain as he recounts a sword wound, another may turn almost blue during a choking fit as she remembers a strangulation, while yet another may become rigidly fixed with arms above the head as … Read the rest

03 Oct: Aspects of Past-Life Bodywork: Understanding Subtle Energy Fields Part II: Practical Aspects – Roger Woolger (Is.4)

by Roger J. Woolger, PhD                                                                                                          

The author demonstrates the inter-relationship of the mental, emotional, and etheric levels as they operate across lifetimes. He illustrates the application of these levels in several case studies: of acute sinusitis, of sexual frigidity, and of panic attacks connected with public speaking. He demonstrates the importance of working with all levels of functioning involved with the symptom.

In the previous part of this article (Woolger, 1987a), which discussed theoretical aspects of bodywork in past-life therapy, I noted how the three subtle bodies or energy fields affected each other. Using this perspective it is often quite simple to see how a thought (from the mental field) can influence feelings (in the emotional field). “I’m a … Read the rest
