Personal Experiences

I’ve been having Integrated Awareness sessions since Oct 1999.  Sessions with 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 my thoughts,...

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, 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 incredibly lucky...

About 15 years ago, my doctor recommended a wonderfully gifted IA teacher to me. Through a series of table sessions and occasional workshops, my perspective of the world around me and my place in it has changed profoundly. The notion that there is more choice available to me is both thrilling with possibility and daunting with responsibility. I can recall the moment when I finally felt the weight of choosing to view myself as scarred shift toward the possibility that I was quite complete.

I’m attracted by the notion that while I don’t need fixing,...

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.

Integrated Awareness has been for me a process of learning to integrate the different levels of my life (my physical body, my emotional body, my energetic body, my spiritual body, and my soul) into present-time awareness. I was amazed to learn it is possible to know how all of me feels, here and now.

I went to see an IA Teacher, at the suggestion of a counselor - who said, I think now it is time for you to work with your body.  I think you will find the most healing by doing that and that you should try out this work called Integrated Awareness.  That’s about all I remember.  I was searching for answers to some things that I couldn’t quite formulate the questions for.  I had interest in energy work, but needed a sense of tangibility.  I was struggling with life and my place in it, and how to find a sense of balance that I longed for, seemed to know...

Integrated Awareness me ha dado mucha confianza en mi misma. IA esta ensenandome una nueva forma de vivir. Y he aprendido que el dolor físico a causa de nuestras emociones se puede soportar. Yo no sabía como manejarlo. Gracias…

Integrated Awareness has given me a lot of confidence in myself. IA is showing me a new way of life. And I’ve learned that it is possible to handle the physical pain caused by emotions. I didn’t know how to cope with them.  Thank you…

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. 

With a professional background in mental health and having spent years studying and exploring many modalities in the healing arts and sciences, IA offers...

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.

Por una parte, me siento con más energía, ya que últimamente estaba siempre muy cansada y este cambio hace que tenga más ganas de hacer cosas y que me sienta más positiva.
 
En general estaba bastante triste y sin ganas de salir o de ver gente y esto ha cambiado. También estoy más serena y no tengo los cambios de humor  y de ánimo que tenía anteriormente.  Estar más positiva me...

IA has changed/is changing my life.  I am a better father, and a better partner due to my experience with IA.  Friends have commented, and I also feel, that I am more present and get less spun up by day to day life.

I’ve been learning and expanding with the aid of Integrated Awareness for fifteen years. As a teenager I talked circles around talk therapists, uninterested in a conventional approach to anything, much less to depression, anxiety, and my myriad strategies of resistance to living.  

My first experience with IA felt insistently true and instantly trustworthy. I don’t remember what I went in to accomplish, and I don’t remember what my teacher looked like, even though I’ve worked with her every year since.  I do remember a new found...
