It Feels Like
DEPTH Dialogue is a unique experience. The descriptions of it and its
background so far, don't give you a good idea of what it feels like
inside. The only way to give you a taste of that other than actually
doing it is by analogies to other experiences. So, what follows aren't
descriptions of DEPTH Dialogue itself but of experiences that give you
Dialogue is like getting a
sensual massage for your whole being, relaxing you all over so
open up, feel lighter, freer, softer, more creative, have the
of transcendent ecstasy and know your true Being, your Self, letting
that come out into all areas and aspects of you .
More precisely, it is
like the deep repatterning practices mentioned in 3.
Where It Comes From, but
encompassing your whole being, not just the body-mind complex.
The feeling and
experience are most like the repatterning practice
called Trager bodywork. This is one of the most unique, remarkable and
effective of the body-mind repatterning practices. It is the practice
that most clearly and simply exemplifies the principle of dynamic
pattern transcendence on the body movement level.
scope is far greater than that, but the similarity
will help give you a picture of what the experience is like. It is very
much the same, but extended to all areas and levels of your being.
Pattern Transcendence In Action
Here is what that
similarity feels like:
The experience of
getting a Trager session is one where you settle
down, relax on a massage table, and someone who is skilled in the
process gently moves and rocks your body. As this interaction happens,
tensions and difficulties that you came in with seem to melt away, to
literally disappear. At the end of the session you don't even remember
that you came in with those tensions or difficulties. You feel so
completely different that it is like having a different body.
This process is so
effective that this kind of seeming miracle happens
unfailingly every time. The experience is remarkable and unmistakable.
And it is so easy and pleasurable that you may wonder how those
incredible results could have happened.
Whole New Being
Dialogue's effects are just as remarkable, unfailing and
unmistakable, but at a much deeper level, encompassing your
being - your thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, actions,
experiences, creative impulses and sense of self.
DEPTH Dialogue is not
bodywork, and it is not done on a massage table
but as a simple conversation between friends. But the inner experience
and the effects are similar to what happens in a Trager session. You
could almost call it Trager work in depth for your whole being.
What Trager bodywork
does for old body movement patterns, DEPTH
Dialogue does for the whole neuro-physiology of selfhood. It is dynamic
pattern transcendence at the greatest depth and the furthest scope of
human experience. And it transforms you
right down to the deepest
bodily physiological level, the place of the deep primitive emotions
that drive your every action, experience and expression.
(Exactly how this
works and how it is accomplished in DEPTH Dialogue is
shown in detail in the sections on the practice - Basics
This kind of
deep-feeling shift in experience that changes your whole
time. The shift may be
small one time,
big another time, and huge some other time, but there is always a
remarkable change that is so all-encompassing that it seems like a
miracle. As in
Trager bodywork, you literally forget what the
or difficulties you started with were. And the process is so
pleasurable that you may wonder how those incredible results could have
And these results
happen just as easily and simply for seemingly big
things as they do for small things. The process is the same, the
principle is the same, the shifts are the same, and the results follow
like day follows night. ALL experiences are the same in their basic
shape and form, in your internal patterning, and so they all yield
easily to the shifting process.
Because of this,
there are no longer ANY big problems in life. ALL
problems can now be seen in the light of the ease of DEPTH Dialogue
shifts, to be just old bogey men. They are puffs of smoke when deep
self-exploration is applied.

when guided by someone who
is well-practiced at guiding, is a
rich, unique type of experience unlike anything most of us are used to.
It is as different

living with your day-to-day
Here, you settle down, relax, let go and start feeling better. You
start to feel into the
pleasurable core of
Life Itself in you. And then you let that Life-in-you come out through
whole being, spreading the ecstatic core pleasure that is the main
quality of Life as a direct bodily experience.
Inner Creativity Is Ecstasy

ecstatic core pleasure feelings for yourself on your own all the time
your daily life. This happens because you

This life-centered creativity, like the spontaneous
of young children, is the natural producer of transcendent ecstasy. You
feel that ecstasy as you are doing DEPTH
carries over into your life more and more as you get more and more used
to that mode of functioning and incorporate it into yourself.
we do DEPTH
Dialogue to become freer,
more creative in our whole lives, and to have the natural transcendent
ecstasy that is in that new level of functioning.
Orientation Toward Life
new level of functioning
transcends all fears and smooths out all difficulties in life,
because it is emotionally, experientially and mentally a way of
organizing your internal experiencing that creates a completely
different orientation toward living - one that does not create fears
problems. Transcendent ecstasy "trumps"
the emotions that create
suffering and turmoil in life. (See The

creativity enters into
life's situations with the mastery that comes from fully conscious
creative play, rather than the struggle that comes from the lower
of life's dramas (i.e. conflict enactments.) So, situations in life
still arise, but they are no longer dramatized and no longer seen or
experienced as suffering or
problems but as elements of experiencing to be played with.
Life Of Fun and Adventure

stuff of play and happiness.
It is that way because you have learned to do it that way. You have
a new life for yourself. You
have learned to engage in the
creative activity that is ecstasy itself, like little children at play.
is what DEPTH Dialogue
does for you:
It helps you reach
deep inside yourself and create a
completely new life of wonder, play, creativity, adventure and ecstasy
On Fundamental Principles
This is accomplished
easily - more
easily than you could imagine,
because the approach used in DEPTH
is based on principles of
transformation and transcendence
that clearly identify and touch the deepest dynamics of the way we all
internally organize our experiencing. (See Overview
for a full explanation of this.)
When we touch these internal
dynamics in the kind of skillful way that we do in DEPTH Dialogue,
incredible changes that were thought difficult or impossible happen
easily without hardly noticing.

what really works
makes everything easy. It is only not knowing what works that
psychological and emotional change seem difficult.

Creativity Leaves All Struggles Behind
We do DEPTH Dialogue

Through the newly re-discovered skillful methods of DEPTH Dialogue this
is now totally and completely easy.
is now no reason
whatsoever to live uncreative, unfruitful,
unfulfilled lives of frustration, struggle and suffering. These
results of living in lower levels of functioning that DEPTH Dialogue
now makes obsolete. They are now easily and quickly left behind forever.
Creativity Needed Now More Than Ever
The ancient Socratic
Wisdom is more relevant today than ever before
because the whole world is challenged by such increased
complexity that the old linear formal operations
mind is no longer capable of dealing with life as it is being
Each of us is being
challenged by the world-wide web of complex
systems to go to a new, higher, more creative way of organizing our own
internal experiencing. Only by doing this can we find new, creative
to interact effectively with the ever-growing complexity of the world
we find ourselves in.
The choice is to do
this or to fall behind or even die because of
lack of adaptation to circumstances. The complexity won't go away. It
is actually expanding all the time. Those who meet that complexity
must find new ways. And, all of us do meet that complexity whether we
like it or not.
New World of Creative
DEPTH Dialogue Process
is the conscious entrance into the new creative world that is already
spontaneously emerging as world complexity. Socratic Wisdom

transcendent play. By fully engaging in the creative play that
we come into the wider
dimensions of the new world that
already upon us.
This is an adventure of unimaginable proportions. As

prospect of personal growth of
unimaginable proportions. We not only face this. It is now a
indeed!!! Because, look where it takes us. Through
fully engaging our deep internal creativity, it
takes us to ever-expanding, ever-deepening transcendent ecstasy, our
true, up until now only dreamed-of, happiness.
Creativity Is True Happiness
So, the reason to

This is now the case
both individually and as a
world of people acting together, because the modern complex world is
now facing a choice of going into great wide open
spaces of a
new existence of transcendent creativity, or continuing on with the old
ways and facing extinction of life of earth.
But only individuals
can make the choice of accessing and fully
engaging their inner creativity, because it lies in each individual
alone. Each of us now has the
exciting possibility of not only living a
life of true creative happiness but also the choice and necessity of
creating a new world!
This is a world for the free, the happy, the creative, the adventurous.
It is a possible world. Fully engaging our inner creativity is the
process that will make it happen. DEPTH Dialogue is the activator of
