    12 Stages of Healing: A Network Approach to Wholeness

    In theory a lot of this sounds as if it would be helpful. Reality can be something very different. The following is my personal experience and opinion of NSA. Please be aware this is not a wonderful healing tool for everyone. I started out thinking it is helpful and then ended up in a horrible state of depression and body agitation and intense pain along with now over 3 months of insomnia that none of the breathing exercises will help. I have tried 2 different practitioners and find myself getting more and more manipulated into trying to stick with it as this is all part of some great process that will help you in the end. Any pain or difficulty is blamed on my 'resistance'. My body is constantly being stretched in NSA and then I have swelling and intense pain that I never had before. If I say anything they tell me it is because I am not feeling my feelings and I need to feel more. I am not a person who is unaware of what I am feeling and where I feel it in my body so this reasoning gets ridiculous. Then in level 2 any pain depression insomnia etc that has occurred gets amplified. You can trust that happens and they try to have you breath through it. I did the breathing religiously it never helped me. They are messing with your Central Nervous System and they do not have as much research and validation as to what is actually happening to the brain and body as they try to make it sound. Trying to get information has been impossible and trying to contact NSA headquarters on their information line is useless. I have written and called numerous times trying to get information and get nothing back. The practitioners I have gone to are anything but what I would consider 'higher brain' compassionate people. One lets her child play with video games that kill people in gory ways After seeing this 6 or 7 times red flags started going off. (This practitioner herself is a recipient of NSA for 10 years or more.). I switched practitioners and am getting no where but lots of guilt about how the universe will find another way to get my attention like maybe a death of a loved one ect. if I don't follow through. I tried this practitioner for 3 months now and after hearing this I really started questioning NSA. She also has been receiving NSA for about 10 years. Personally It seems they have subtle and not so subtle ways of continually manipulating people into keep coming when they are obviously causing things within your Central Nervous System that are anything but healing. Another great scheme is to have you come in more rather then less when there is swelling or any other concerns such as depression insomnia etc. This has only intensified all of the above for me. Another manipulation to watch for is their system of trying to re-label everything into a healing opportunity. There is a great fondness for causing struggle and frustration and pain. Also the financial cost of going 2-3 times a week is enormous. And if you buy into all the manipulations of how to be a more compassionate 'Higher Brain' functioning human you never stop going. After you finish going 3 times a week at lower levels -You go at least 2-3 times a month depending on how committed you 'truly' are to being a more evolved spiritual enlightened human. There also seems to be a cult like atmosphere around Donny Epstein the founder. Whenever I questioned anything there was a stiff taken back approach given to me and I was told I was so wrong and 'lower brain' fight or flight thinking of me to not completely adore his work. Then there is the pushing about how much research has been done. However, that research has been questioned as to its validity. For one thing, they may have some studies and research but they definitely do not know enough about how NSA affects a large enough segment of the human population in our Central Nervous System and as I understand it there are other problems with the research and how valid it actually is. All I can say is be aware and watch out for all t

    A 'MUST READ'

    I recommend this book to everyone. I will read it over and over, because each time I do, I get more out of it. I've been in Network care for approximately 6 months. Starting care was the best decision I've ever made. Donald Epstein is a genius!
