Integrated Awareness has been for me a very personal journey from chaos to calm, from separation to belonging, a vehicle of self-inquiry and discovery, a touchstone for sanity and safety. Guided through a process of experiential learning, IA works from the inside out. I was asked to show up for the process, state what I wanted and to remain open for what is possible.
I’ve been having Integrated Awareness sessions since Oct 1999. Sessions with Lansing et al have changed my life over the years, and I’m not being melodramatic.
Issues I have presented were along the theme of emotional development:
- what gets in the way of me finding a monogamous life partner?
- how can I be more open emotionally?
- how can I allow myself to take up more space?
-how can I manifest more of what I want in my life?, be less hard on myself, get out of my own way, feel more, protect myself less, be more comfortable alone with...
In 2006, I was faced with a particularly aggressive, life-threatening illness. Should anyone ask me today I would and could recommend excellent surgeons, oncologists and radiologists, all of whom I credit for saving my life at that time.
It is, however, my IA teacher, Kathy Bledsoe, to whom I attribute my healing, recovery, and ability to thrive and live a life I continue to grow and to love. Initially, I chose IA to help me find a way to sleep. I had all kinds of...
My experience at Integrated Awareness was absolutely incredible and life changing. I had a lot of discomfort in my body coming in there, and the work done with Lansing and Jane helped reduce a lot of my physical and emotional discomforts and opened up opportunities to live in a whole new way.
Now when something in my life happens, I can immediately feel where I hold certain muscle groups and tense up. This newfound awareness has enabled me to release that tension and come back to who I really am, releasing the anxiety and allowing my body to be at ease.
I first came to Integrated Awareness seeking continued work on my sobriety following six months with Alcoholics Anonymous. I was looking for something more… and I stayed for 25 years of table sessions and classroom study with Lansing Gresham.
Twenty years ago I came to Integrated Awareness® needing healing after a serious car accident. My life passion and work require me to travel the world, but I could not fly because my left ear could not pressurize. The first time someone had their hands on me in IA I felt a deep awareness of all the energy in my body. Within thirty seconds I knew I needed to know more.
I started looking for Lansing Gresham, the founder of Integrated Awareness, who was the teacher of the person helping me. When I learned his base was near my hometown, I felt...
Desde que Andrew trabaja conmigo son muchos los cambios que he notado y ha sido una gran sorpresa para mí, es más de lo que yo me esperaba y los cambios se sienten rápidamente.
I watched two dear friends change in their self-regard and self-knowing through their work in Integrated Awareness. I was powerfully affected watching their transformations. When I hit a wall, in terms of life choices and patterns, I turned to IA. I now watch my own transformation and feel forever grateful. The journey has not been easy; it has been remarkable. When I find myself lost in old habits, disconnected from myself, or in a state of forgetfulness, I have a table session. I come home to myself.

My first introduction to IA was from an article I read in one of the massage magazines back in the early 2000’s. It was written by Dale Alexander. I was intriguingly lead to sign up for one of the public workshops. I bought both of Lansing’s books and read them. Then took another workshop in 2009. As of 2014, I have engaged in a massage practice for 20 years. For the last few years I have been asking Source, my Higher Self or the Universe for the “next step” to deepen my work. And from a physical...
I went for IA® help with 2 separate problems. I had very painful sciatica on one occasion and a painful elbow and shoulder on another. During the sessions I noticed a lot of different sensations. There was a feeling of balancing happening in my legs and a sense of lengthening in my neck. It was gentle and non-invasive. My IA Teacher, Andrew McKay, knew just how to hold my head and how to support my neck.
