The Sedona Method with Lester Levinson

Lester has a special place in my heart. I feel a personal connection to him, as though I’ve known him personally. It’s a strange feeling, but it could be due to the fact that we were both born in the same hospital in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

I stumbled upon Lester’s teachings after returning from a trip to India, during which I was introduced to the idea that repressed emotions are causing much of our suffering. . Our guide during this journey was a wise soul who imparted essential life teachings about repressed emotions and these stored pains. Bhagavan, our guide, once said, “When you feel it, stay with it, stay with it till it leaves”. These words remain etched in my memory.

His advice, however, was easier said than done. Confronting one’s pain and emotions head-on, allowing them to stay until they naturally depart, is a tough task. It requires strength, patience, and resilience. But it’s a critical process for personal growth and emotional healing.

It was in this challenging phase that I discovered the Sedona Method. This method was like a life preserver thrown to a drowning man. It taught me the power of letting go. Instead of holding onto the pain until it decided to leave, I learned to let go. In my experience, it was easier for me to release the pain than to endure it until it naturally faded away. That’s not to say that Bhagavan’s method doesn’t work. It just means that different methods resonate with different people.

The Sedona Method was a beacon of light in a moment of darkness. These teachings helped me to navigate through a difficult time, and for that, he will always hold a special place in my heart.


Here are a couple of Movies from Lester and I will continue to up date my writing as I can. 

Check out Hale Dwaskin & Larry Crane also introduced me to this work and was one of Lester’s two teachers.
