- "I continue to walk my path; my exciting journey of transformation continues today and is greatly enhanced by the opportunity to be involved in the transformation of others" - Edmund K.
My name is Edmund K. Friedman. I began this life-changing journey in the late '80's and early '90's. At that time I was as a pre-med student with aspirations for a career in medical research. As an Undergraduate, I was cited in numerous neuroscience journals as a research assistant at Georgetown University.
While that chapter of my life was culminating, I experienced a series of life changing awakenings. As a result, my path towards conventional medicine came to an end. My whole experience and perspective of life was changing radically, prompting me to seek guidance from modern psychology, psychiatry, Zen masters, gurus, meditation retreats, yoga and so on. But I still felt something was missing, incomplete. I still felt disconnected. In 1999, I discovered this work as a client and it was exactly what I needed.
What became clear to me in this work was a unification of elements - that is, spirituality, knowledge, pure experience (of emotions), the relationship between emotions, Chakras and the evolution of one's consciousness - and how these elements play a part in the personal experience of love, connection and trust of life itself.
I discovered that emotions are a hidden key. I learned that emotions (literally energy) determine and feed impulses to our brain to create thought, in that order! - This represents the next level in the evolution of conventional healing and transformation; out of the mind and into the feelings. I have learned that the way we feel determines how we experience reality much more than what we think about reality.
I have transformed myself into allowing all feelings to occur with equal value such as: sadness, joy, power, powerlessness, anger, enough-ness, sensual - all without judgement or resistance. All feelings are equal and feeling them is key to deciphering your experience of reality. If you can't feel all of your feelings or if your capacity is limited, then the learning curve of your personal evolution is much steeper. When you feel, you know. When you feel, you resonate. And when you resonate, you manifest.
Wouldn't you rather be able to feel joy than trying to think or yearn for it? Don't you want to learn the skill of manifestation that is unshakable?
As a result, I found a much deeper and lasting freedom that continues to grow -freedom from having to think my way through. Freedom from needing military-like disciplines and replaced with passion. Freedom from the the use of prescription drugs, which in many ways function as emotion-numbing.
Since 2001, I have trained continually and extensively in order to build the capacity to teach and guide others in the path of transformation. What I teach are techniques and tools to take charge of your feelings and reality, which is owning yourself in wholeness - true empowerment. What I provide in teaching is a safe and trust-building environment, making it easier to explore and get to know yourself. This is key because most of us, myself included, were not provided the most pleasant environment while developing feelings as children.
