Living in resistance

Most of us are living a life of resistance. We resist certain thoughts, people and memories. In The Wonder Method, these resistances become opportunities. Once we are aware we are resisting something we have the option to feel that sensation as oppposed to pushing it away. The act of feeling the sensations also makes it possible for those sensations to change and evolve, reducing our reaction to the original trigger. As TWM is applied the resistance gradually drops away (often a matter of minutes) and balance is the result. This approach is always available, it is simply a choice to feel or resist.  Enjoy ~Alain & Jody Herriott

In the Tao te Ching

In the 2nd Tao te Ching it says “When people see some things as beautiful, other things become ugly.  When people see some things as good, other things become bad.” It goes on to say “Being and non being create each other.  Difficult and easy support each other….” Our judgement of circumstances cause internal conflict. If we view right and wrong as being absolute we get caught in the mind trap that there are no alternatives to the way we are living.  Yet if we choose to experience the gentle sensations inside of us, these seeming judgements begin to drop away and we again return to harmony and a life in balance.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Awakening. What does it mean

Awakening.  What does it mean? For us, within the experience of The Wonder Method exercises, it allows us to have a quiet mind, peacefulness and a sense of balance and wholeness.  Hand in hand with this is allowing ourselves to feel the sensations within knowing they lead us to an ever deeper experience of balance and happiness.  We encourage you to feel what is inside you and let it carry you to ever greater fulfillment. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Beauty in Silence

Have you noticed the beauty in the silence?  The mind isn’t usually comfortable with it.  It wants constant feedback from itself. The mind believes that all of it is real, yet it is only the box that it has been playing in.  As the feelings within us are allowed to be experienced, then the silence many only experience outside of themselves, becomes the new normal.  Balance, the exquisite harmony of the integration of body and mind. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Wonder Method

We are often asked just what is The Wonder Method?  Probably first and foremost it is a subtle, simple, yet counter intuitive way to become incredibly present.  Other names for this might be “awake”, “grounded”, or “balanced” within ourselves.  Beyond this it is a model that can be used to offer healing to others and to unwind limiting beliefs and experiences until calm and balance are experienced within us.  If we take it further it is also a way to step beyond the common view of reality or Maya and begin to live in satisfaction and joy.  This all starts with feeling at the sensation level and everything evolves from there.  We encourage you to feel; it is wonderfully satisfying. ~ Alain & Jody Herriott

Life is defined by stress

So much of our life is defined by stress, what we want and what we don’t want. The more stress, the more resistance we experience about everything we do.  As we unfold, through unwinding our resistance, we begin to realize that the less we resist, the more we open. In time we are living the maxim, “when nothing is done, nothing is left undone.”  Now we are balance, a never ending now of being. Enjoy the journey. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

When life upsets us, the mind wants to solve

When life upsets us, the mind wants to “solve” what it considers a problem.  In the process we are taken on a mental trip of upset, drama and unsolvable conundrums. The feelings that are below the surface of the mind’s drama are actually a better tool to unlock the door of the problem and bring us balance.  Again, these feelings are not a problem to solve, they are an experience that should be allowed to unfold within us. As we feel our feelings and they unfold we find ourselves becoming balanced; we become completed in such a pleasant and vast way it defies description.  Enjoy the journey.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Presence don’t leave home without it

Presence— don’t leave home without it. Funny phrase eh? Most of us go out the door to begin the day and are leading with our heads. We forget about our bodies and the associated sensations as they seem too subtle or too much trouble to pay attention to. In reality we really should allow ourselves to feel throughout our bodies as the day begins. In this way we arrive at our destination fully integrated. We are more effective in the work place and we connect with our coworkers as the day unfolds in balance and harmony. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Every experience in our world

Every experience and each thing we interact with in our world is part of the definition of self, of what we call “me”.  Many of these things and experiences seem limiting.  They don’t have to be, but through habit we stay in the same old rut.  Mind says: stay with what is familiar, ignore the feelings within you that something is wrong, and you will be safe.  The problem is that we are not safe, we are only used to the rut we have been experiencing.  When we allow feeling to join the mix, we gradually remove the walls of our old ruts and we again become free to live in balance and harmony.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
