Oh yeah….MAGIC! That fact that CRM allows me to get it wrong so that I get it right in a better way is the stuff of fractals and nature and love and hope and kick-ass therapy!!

Today’s CRM session left me at peace in the wholeness of my Core Self. I’ve been a psychologist for 25 years and have experienced most forms of therapy. I know that there is no other method that could navigate my early attachment anxieties and shift my experience of myself and my life as CRM has. Today’s session accessed and allowed the chaos of that old trauma and enabled my mind-body to resettle in a more accurate and possibility-rich home. Many thanks, Lisa
The resourcing model allows for someone to do inner work emotionally and physically, that they have been previously unable to access.
I think the grid is a wonderful tool for helping one to attend to and attune to their own body, as well as creating a felt space to do the inner work. Somehow inviting the part that holds the emotion into the grid makes perfect sense at that point. For the grid is a place and a good one because it is held together by the individuals own strength and sense of being grounded. This is an attunement to and within the self.
Then the attunement work of breathe, heartbeat, eyes, touch is so powerful that the individual is completely supported from within, rather than from without (by the therapist). Hence the truths that individuals come to are so poignant for them, because they know them to be true on an attuned level. For example, I’m okay. I am love able. I love me. I’m just fine. Etc…are things they’ve thought before..even tried to practice in affirmations. But now having experienced their wounded part in attunement with another part, they can do the repair needed. As a result,they finally believe it to be true.
A great reminder. Taking Trainings and doing my personal work with Lisa Schwartz has been a life transforming experience for me and my clients. In my last session with Lisa, we started the work,…she asked me to remember my core self spot. I couldn’t remember it. So she reminded me how important it was and walked me through the process of getting my core self connection. Having that connection turned out to be the most powerful session I have ever experienced. It reminded me that Lisa , (in her trainings) says over and over again to be sure to get your core self connection and also be sure your clients get it. I was not doing this process, thinking I would have to deal with to much ‘stuff’ in a 50 minute session. I HAVE to share, since that session, over a month ago, I have started most all of my sessions with the core self connection. Every single time, every time, my sessions have been powerful, deeper change, and even spiritual for my clients. I am so grateful that Lisa had me connect to my core self and reminded me just how important it is. I am hoping she will do a new training (: on just this process.
In 30 plus years of practice, I have finally found, in CRM, a model that brings together my training in the body, energy, cognitive therapy and spirituality. It is truly the Holy Grail of therapies. Lisa Schwarz is a true visionary, combining her wealth of clinical experience with the latest research on neuroscience and trauma. At the end of this workshop, I was ready to take this amazing work into my practice. My clients should be giving this testimonial…the results are magical!”
I experienced Lisa’s abilities first hand at a Workshop where she presented and trained myself and 50 other therapists to do resource trauma therapy! Her delivery of the material was exceptional and very learner friendly! She is truly amazing and has inspired me in a way I haven’t been inspired in a long time. I feel like I could do my work now for several years.
As a therapist, I have had the good fortune to do both a CRM training with Lisa Schwarz and also a two day treatment intensive. I would have to say that the intensive was one of the most truly healing experiences I have ever had in my life. The work that I did with Lisa was profoundly deep and transformational. It altered my interactions with an important person in my life, where there were old wounds that needed healing. It also altered my relationship to myself and my physical response to stress and trauma. During the sessions, Lisa was genuinely present, intuitive, and heart centered. She did an extremely skillful job of guiding and facilitating the work. I also found Lisa to be compassionately direct and “real” in the best sense of the word. She did not “sugar coat,” her feedback. Rather, she had faith that I could integrate her observations and suggestions. These respectful “reality checks,” assisted me with being able to make rapid changes over a shorter period of time than I would have expected. In addition to being a profound emotional experience, my work with Lisa was also very spiritually significant. The environment where Lisa practices is perfect for personal exploration. From the small, cozy town where she is located, to her lovely treatment space, I felt completely at ease and able to connect with nature as a grounding force throughout my stay. For anyone who is interested in making a personal commitment to doing in depth, emotionally dynamic and life changing therapeutic work, I highly recommend Lisa Schwarz.
I have been practising CRM for the past year and have found it incredibly healing for myself and my clients. It is a form of practise that goes deeper and wider than any other training and personal therapy I have done over the last 30 years. It is truly healing and comprehensive. It has enabled me to be a better therapist whether I am using it with my clients or they are benefiting from my use of it. Thank you Lisa for sharing your light love and wisdom.
