Editorial Reviews


Core Transformation offers a profound way to touch the depths of our own soulfulness. I had an immediate and deep experience of self-love with it. --John Bradshaw, author, Creating Love

One of the most important works I have come across in any field, Core Transformation should be adopted as the principal therapy by every therapist in the country, understood and practiced by everyone in the helping and legal professions, as well as parents and teachers. I stand in awe at the simplicity, clarity and directness of a work of such magnitude, and will do all I can to promote it. --Joseph Chilton Pearce, author, The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, The Magical Child, Evolution's End

I am astounded. Suddenly we have a bridge from psychopathology (or plain human problems) to enlightenment. There it stands, every beam in place and traffic already passing over it. I know therapist types will make ready use of it, and I hope religions will embrace the profound implications of this fine new bridge into their territory. --Wilson Van Dusen, Ph.D, former Chief Psychologist at Mendocino State Hospital, CA

Core Transformation is a brilliant book about a brilliant process. It quickly takes you to the core of your being. What a powerful and simple gift! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to achieve higher states of love, peace and joy! -Jack Canfield, President, Self Esteem Seminars, author, Chicken Soup for the Soul

The way to a man and woman s heart is through this book. Core Transformation will help you turn your limitations inside out, enabling you to experience yourself in a way you never dreamed possible. -Michele Weiner-Davis, author, Divorce Busting

Core Transformation takes us beyond assumed boundaries, into the virgin territories of the self-a place of greater courage and love, into the well-spring of authenticity, the core of being. -Dan Millman, author, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior and The Life You Were Born to Live

This book will take you there. Compassionately, clearly and interestingly written, with just the right balance of idea and procedure. There is no limit to the good Core Transformation could end up doing. --Huth Prather, author, Notes to Myself

This book will help you make changes that lead directly to increased personal effectiveness. I recommend Core Transformation to anyone in business who wants to improve results. --Dan Thomas, Ph.D., former Professor, Harvard and Stanford Business Schools; author of Business Sense

From the Author

In this book you will be invited to identify the behaviors, feelings and responses you like least in yourself, and use them to take yourself on a remarkably healing and uplifting personal journey within, to the depths of your beingness. This journey is called the Core Transformation Process.

The material presented in this book is a breakthrough for me both personally and professionally, and I believe it is a breakthrough in the field of personal growth and psychology. As I explored and developed the Core Transformation Process with clients and with myself, I began to have a sense of awe and reverence for what I witnessed. Powerfully transforming states of consciousness, which I call Core States, were naturally emerging. These states seemed to be identical to the states of consciousness many people strive for in spiritual traditions, described as transcendent or spiritual experiences. Through doing the Core Transformation Process these states became more than a temporary high--they became the basis for living from a new "center."

The way these experiences emerged was surprising and unexpected. I had no intention of developing a process with spiritual overtones. My goal was to develop a process that went deep enough to the core of our experience to be effective with everything from seemingly trivial problems to our biggest life issues. I wanted something that went deeper than what I had known Before--both for myself and for my clients.

In this search I gave myself the challenge of working with people who had some major limitation they hadn't been able to change. The issues they dealt with varied widely from chronic pain, abuse, bulimia, rage, sexual difficulties, codependency, to the man who felt he always held himself back from living his full potential.

In seeking to find what would transform these major life issues I stumbled upon a process that went far beyond my original goals. Most of the people I took through it got the results they wanted in their lives--either complete changes or significant movement in the direction they desired. But beyond that, they wrote me cards and letters telling me things like, "It's a miracle," or, "Everything has changed." One person who didn't get what he had specifically asked for said, "I got something better; something wonderful is happening that's hard to put into words."

Discovering these incredibly powerful Core States at the center of every inner part in myself and others has certainly transformed my sense of the spiritual nature within each of us. This spiritual nature is not a belief system, it is an experience, and I want to acknowledge that you may prefer to describe your experience in other terms. You do not need to have a spiritual belief to benefit from the Core Transformation Process. When we do this process with individual clients, or in workshops, we often do not talk about what kind of experience to expect. You will get equally strong results whether you describe your experience as spiritual, or in other terms that fit better for you.

...As you do these exercises, be gentle and patient with yourself. As you read each step, we will be there with you, guiding you in what may be the kindest thing you have done for yourself in some time. The process is simple and straightforward. First we will assist you in welcoming the parts of yourself that you want to change--they are about to become your strongest and most helpful allies.
