This state gives a wonderful silence in the mind and is critically important state for your own mental health. Simple to do, it is ideal for clients. We'll also practice the Inner Peace Process in class, which gives a continuous state where past emotional trauma doesn't normally get triggered. We'll also work with other important peak states that have minimal risk or adjustment problems for students.
