I had not rebirthed for a very long time and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to breathe independently, bringing myself back to consciousness.
My goal was relaxation and that is what I achieved. I am now encouraged to continue on taking care of my needs and health.
Shortly after completing the series with Tamara, I followed my intuition and began again doing the work that is dear to my heart, after a four year hiatus.
Thank you Tamara for a powerful and positive experience that revealed important and previously blocked information by bringing forth the memory of experiences stored in my unconscious. These insights now enable me to live more fully and freely.
After 10 years of working with alternative therapies in the area of spiritual psychology, I am surprised and delighted with the results of my rebirthing sessions with Tamara Penn. I’ve experienced powerful shifts of energy which have given me life changing insights about what was being held in my unconscious.
Thank you Tamara for guiding me in this process of discovery.
I am excited to share what I have learned with others as well as using it with my clients. I truly believe in ‘Flower Power’.
I have gone through rebirthing sessions many times. And in every case it made a positive and often profound change in my life. Immediately after the session I look and feel as if I have been on a week’s retreat.
The One Year Seminar (OYS) can and will change your life, as it changed mine. It can move you onto a spiritual path or, if you are traveling one already, elevate you to a higher plane.
If you are already on an extremely high plane, then you know that an intimate knowledge of Rebirthing is an essential tool that you must have for the completion of your journey. There is something in the OYS for everyone!
I consider that I was only a short distance along the spiritual path, despite 56 years of living, searching, exploring and experimenting with various forms of self-development and practicing social consciousness. As I was apparently ready for my curiosity to open me to unthought-of possibilities, Rebirthing and the OYS presented new vistas for me in dramatic self-development and positive personal change.
Rebirthing itself is the motor force of the whole process. Learning Conscious Energy Breathing allows the breath to play its God-given role in bridging the gap between the conscious and unconscious mind; actively breathing out of your body negative and life-restricting traumas linked to the birth experience and other early life programmings, and replacing them with the oxygen and Prana (life energy) that dramatically enhance aliveness and well-being. That’s certainly what it did for me!
One of the major bonuses of Rebirthing therapy is that one of its primary goals is to teach you to do it for yourself. After 10 or up to 20 sessions with a trained Rebirther, enhanced by the learning in the OYS, I was ready to continue my development under my own direction. I am returning to the OYS for another year, however, because of the way its supportive and dynamic atmosphere enhances my development.
Besides regularly practicing Rebirthing for a whole year, the OYS also explores a whole range of topics and activities that train you to channel your liberated positive thoughts and energy into practices that develop and integrate maximum benefit for your personal health and well-being. Here are some examples of how particular topics worked for me:
Spiritual Purification: In addition to energy breathing, I have found that studying and changing my diet, eating more wholesome foods (enhanced by following the Diet For Your Blood Type), drinking pure water, monthly one-day fasting (moving towards weekly), simple daily exercises (Rites) and using fire has led me with minimal effort and no painful denial to a 50-pound weight loss in less than eight months, and a much more positive and energized relationship with my body!
Spiritual Healing: Embracing the concept that there is an internal God within me (and how to get in touch with Him/Her through meditation and the help of the other practices below) has been invaluable in allowing me to evaluate and restructure my life with energy, confidence and optimism.
Rather than simply exist as a passive victim in many important ways, I have come to see that I can control, and find success and fulfillment, in all aspects of my life through discovering and being led by my internal divinity. It is exciting and enlivening! I say Yes To Life; and am learning how to Live The Moment!
Personal Law/Affirmations: Being able to understand the subconscious, programmed (by birth, parents, early life experiences) directives that have driven my life up to now has been an invaluable tool in understanding, and changing, personal negative behaviours and beliefs that have affected my life and against which I previously felt helpless. The daily practice of Affirmations (changing negative thoughts I have internalized into positive ones and dramatically affecting my material environment) has become an ongoing method of keeping life positive, and a lot of fun!
Physical Immortality: This concept (difficult as it is for people like me brought up in Western society to accept) has dovetailed strongly with my earlier political beliefs and social activism. Eastern spiritualism maintains that the soul is eternal while the body may die; and that purification practices can ultimately lead to Enlightenment and Immortality. Why not, given the evidence that exists, including our innate connection to Cosmic Consciousness?
The pro-death focus of western Capitalist society is just another understandable manifestation of its disregard for humanity. Bodies, like any other consumable, are just used up (having worked for, purchased, and consumed all the synthetic, disease-causing products that fuel the profit-making system) and tossed away, usually after having produced another generation of consumers!
But if you live every day fully with joy and confidence about your life process, and keep your body healthy and virile through spiritual purification practices; what will prevent you from living forever?
Participating in the OYS gave me the opportunity to learn, study and discuss these exciting topics in a safe environment with people open to exploring new possibilities and committed to sharing their successes and setbacks in a supportive and respectful way with fellow/sister group members. The atmosphere was lively; it was sometimes challenging; full of laughter and of tears (and great food from the shared potluck vegetarian meals each month); but always interesting and fun.
I would recommend it to anyone who loves life and personal growth!
I just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to experience my first rebirthing! It was like nothing I’ve ever experienced and I can’t believe what a difference it made in how I felt. It’s funny how timing works out and I definitely needed it yesterday as I found myself slipping into “victim” mentality and not appreciating the journey of life for what it is. I felt that every message was speaking directly to how I was feeling and I now feel refreshed and better able to “see the light” that is waiting for me to fulfill my purpose in this life! Thank you and I definitely look forward to doing this again.
I am offering a shout out to a wonderful Toronto-based teacher, rebirther and healer… If you don’t know about her, and you live here in Toronto, you must! Here is my testimonial of her and her work:
I think of Tamara Penn as The Council – healer, teacher, urban shaman, masterful rebirther, and a 30 year + treasure trove of experience, insight, love, and knowledge – irreplaceable and unique.
She is a sage – and one of the finest rebirthers (conscious connected breathing practitioners) on the planet. Why? Because when you bring her your challenges and lay them at her feet, she has a soothing, solid way of meeting you where you are. Nothing fazes her. And that is powerful. As a client, you want that, I think. You want to feel that the practitioner you work with is a safe container – has the bandwidth, the heart, the mettle, the substance, the compassion, the humour (she’s funny!) and the experience to help you. Tamara Penn is all that and more. She is a powerful beacon of Light and a seer. Actually, I’d say she’s a Spiritual Lighthouse. In the storm of life, or in the midst of your greatest celebration, she meets you right there. Able to help you process it all, feel, release, transform it or celebrate it (!), then integrate & anchor it and come to the other side – feeling more alive, free, stronger, Light-er, loved, connected to Infinite Grace, and able to conquer the world.
What she can teach and share with you about the art and science of breath (and many other modalities) is not to be missed. It is like sitting at the feet of a wise elder – someone who can impart the wisdom of the ages. And there are too few of those around us — and not so many here in Toronto. But she is one. Toronto is blessed to have her.
She is offering a rare and not-to-be-missed One-Year-Seminar in Rebirthing — in Toronto, starting April 19th – and her introductory talk is this Sunday, March 15th. Visit: http://www.tamarapenn.
com or call her to find out more: 416-544-9244. This is for ALL Evolutionary Angels on a Mission to Live in their Greatest Light and Serve at their Highest Level….if you feel the call… you know it’s for you!
I highly recommend this course to everyone of all backgrounds and ages because we are all emotional beings needing emotional support.
I feel truly blessed by my experience and am so excited to learn more in the future.
Thank You Tamara!
For all you out there: I cannot say enough about the wonderful, life-transforming power I have experienced in my life, upon having worked with Ms. Tamara Penn. I met Ms Penn in 1989, when I was suffering from a stress disorder that was quite painful; my marriage was on the rocks; and my business was in disarray.
I took 10 rebirthing sessions with Tamara, following which I joined a group organized by her, travelling to the Philippines for healing. Our relationship continued for a number of years, while I was the humble recipient of her healing love and insight. Our relationship has stood the test of time and is still very much alive today.
I regard Tamara as one of a few *beams of light* in my life, from which I have been fed the spiritual manna that has supported and nourished my life and those around me, until today.
For those who wish to know what it means to lean on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings for those who dare encounter this woman, this spiritual light, Ms. Tamara Penn.
