Here it is Hale’s Story, excerpted from The Sedona Method: Your Key to Long-lasting Happiness, Success and Peace.-being, Sedona September 2003 Press Release
I met Lester Levenson who in 1976 inspired the creation. Sedona Method I would also become my mentor. I was a confused and ardent seeker back then. I had attended many seminars by teachers from the East and West. I had studied various body-I practiced a variety of shiatsu, yoga, tai-chi, and other body-centered disciplines. I was active in many personal development courses, including EST and Actualism, Theta seminars, and Rebirthing. At these seminars, I had many nice experiences and heard and understood—at least intellectually—many useful concepts. Still, I felt incomplete. I wanted a simple, powerful answer to important questions such as: “What is my life’s purpose?” “What is truth?” “Who am I?” And “How can I feel at home and at peace with my life?”
Many of the things I heard and experienced only exacerbated my curiosity. Nobody seemed to have any real answers or to be completely satisfied about their true nature. A strong belief was held by almost everyone that growing was hard work. It required shedding your soul and reliving past traumas. This all changed when I met Lester, a remarkable man. I met Lester during a seminar organized by a well-known psychologist.-known speaker that Lester was attending as the leader’s guest. We all went out for lunch together that day. Lester’s presence immediately struck me as unique. He was at peace and equal.-He is very open-minded and comfortable with himself. He was unassuming and easy to talk to and treated everyone as his friend—even me, a complete stranger. It was obvious that he’d ended his search by discovering the answers I’d been seeking. I knew I had no choice but to learn more.
I asked Lester about his job and he invited me along to a seminar being held the following weekend. He would only tell me that. “a group of people is going to sit around a table and release.” I wasn’t sure what releasing meant, but I knew if it could even point me in the direction of the qualities of which Lester was the living embodiment, I definitely wanted it. I signed up immediately and took a leap in faith.
That weekend I was in essentially the same position you’re in right now. I was about embark on a journey for the first time and felt a little trepidation. I wasn’t sure exactly with what I was getting involved, and, since I had done so many seminars, I also had a healthy degree of skepticism. I was left wondering. “Oh my God, is this going to be another one of those disappointments along the way?” However, as the course unfolded I observed myself and others in class losing long.-Held beliefs and limitations with astonishing ease and speed, but without having to relive and explain their lives.
Almost overnight, I knew that I’d found what I was looking for. In fact, deep inside, I knew that this process of releasing was what I had been born to do and share with the world—and to this day I have never wavered. In the past 26 years, I’ve watched thousands of other people change their lives, radically yet gently, for the better just by learning one elegantly simple, yet powerful technique.
How Releasing Influenced My Life
From the beginning, Lester felt like a friend to me. I was immediately drawn to him and his teachings, so I quickly took all three courses: the Basic Course in November and January, the Advanced Course and Instructors Training in February. I was eager to learn all I could. I began working with Lester to share his teachings with others.
Working with Lester afforded me the opportunity to spend more time with him, observe him in action, and see how he dealt with life’s inevitable challenges. I was impressed. One of the ways that we connected was to meet in coffee shops and talk long. He enjoyed chatting over a cup o’ coffee until the very end. He often stated, “My office is my brief case, and the nearest place to get a good cup of coffee.”
Meetings were often funny and frustrating for me. Lester, on the other hand, would steer the conversation to as mundane as possible. Nonetheless, every time we were together, my understanding and direct experience of truth would deepen—even if we never spoke about it. He was a living example, not a pontificator. This allowed me to experience greater freedom in every moment. It is a practice that I still use to this day.
I was so involved that I started support groups for people who use the internet. Sedona Method In my Upper West Side apartment’s living room. But it wasn’t long before I realized that I needed to mature and grow personally before I could be of much use to Lester and his budding organization. I decided to be a volunteer and an active participant in his organization instead of an employee, while continuing to explore how releasing would impact my daily life.
Soon after that, my jewelry business was started. I was able to work part-time because of the success of my venture.-Time while I explore life and my releasing fully-time. This venture and my casual involvement with Lester continued until 1981. I worked with the Method in my business and personal life, I became ever more convinced that I’d found a technique that could help anyone. In the late ‘70s Lester moved out to Arizona. Although my contact with Lester was limited to his teachings, it continued its influence on me.
In 1981, I was invited by Phoenix to attend an Instructors Training. This seminar marked a new chapter in our relationship. It also renewed my desire to work closely alongside Lester on sharing the gospel. Method With the rest of the world.
I began leading workshops. Sedona Method Graduates were often in New York City. They flew to Arizona many times a year to get more training and participate in longer retreats called Intensives. Participating in the Trainings and Intensives and leading workshops greatly accelerated my personal use. Method. I saw profound results in my own experience and in the lives of friends who participated.
I decided to become more involved in the community during this time.-Time is a valuable resource in the business world. I briefly worked for my father selling industrial real estate in and around New York City, but I didn’t feel the job suited me. I then joined a Manhattan firm that sold co-branded products.-Condominiums and ops.
I was quickly able use the Method I was able support my sales abilities and became one their top salespeople. For a while I enjoyed doing this, but then an opportunity presented itself to join my brother in establishing an investment division back in my father’s real estate firm. I was happy to sell office buildings, shopping malls, and other real property investments.
My brother and I became best friends for the first time in our lives. I was able let go of the baggage I had carried about our previous relationship and we became a great business team. We had a recurring problem of closing more deals than were actually being started. Lester called me to check on how I was doing. I explained the situation.
One sentence was all that he said that completely changed our closing ratio and the rest my business career. He said, “Bank in the bank, not in your head.” He noticed something that I and most others in the sales profession had, and he was able to identify it without me having to say anything. “head banking.” I was so consumed with fantasizing about how amazing it would be to close each deal, that I neglected to actually do so. Once I started releasing rather than fantasizing, we were able to close more deals.
Another important lesson on letting go was learned from receiving a listing for nine shopping malls from a Xerox brokerage. A Xerox agent is someone who receives listings for properties from other brokers. Then copies are sent to other brokers and principals.
I sent a copy to one of my best customers and he immediately returned an almost complete listing.-Priced offer. I was thrilled, so I called the man I thought was the principal to confirm, but I discovered that the listing was from a Xerox broker and there was no way to contact the true owner.
I was disillusioned and realized that there was nothing else I could do than to let go. I did so. I cleared my head and let go all my feelings about it until I felt that it was okay to not make the deal. The principal of the shopping centers called us immediately to discuss an ad that was running in the Wall Street Journal. I almost fell to the ground when he offered us the listing for the exact same property.
This is only one of many events that have led me to understand that a statement I’d heard repeatedly from Lester is absolutely true: “Even the impossible becomes completely possible when you are fully released on it.”
I was also able to practice using it. Method right while closing deals, sometimes when people were renegotiating multimillion dollar contracts and trying to cheat me or each other by making up a whole new story of what we’d agreed on, instead of simply signing the papers and exchanging checks. These were very stressful situations, as there was a lot at stake. Nonetheless, because I was releasing, I knew when to be quiet—which is very difficult for a broker. I also knew when it was right to stand up for what was right. I was rewarded beyond my wildest dreams with the financial rewards.
By early 1987, I’d saved enough money to move to Arizona to rejoin Lester and support him in sharing his wonderful technique with the world. To the horror of my father and brother, I moved to Phoenix and became a full-time employee.-Volunteer time for his non-profit-The profit organization Sedona Institute, doing whatever was necessary to get the word around. I spent most of the remaining years of Lester’s life working closely with him on his mission, almost entirely without monetary compensation. The reason I didn’t mind working for free was that I could see how much good I was doing, and how much I was personally changing for the better.
Lester asked that I move to in 1989. Sedona to help him sell some of the organization’s real estate holdings to graduates in order to raise money. Amy, my wife, was also there. I met her in karate and instantly recognized her as my wife. I asked her out the next day. However, she was still with another man at the time and asked for my number in case her circumstances changed. I received a phone call from her several months later and we went out on our first date. That was on a Wednesday. That Saturday, she was taking the Sedona Method Course.
Today, Amy and I have a beautiful, loving relationship, but it wasn’t always that way. It was hard at first. Amy was actually interested in other men when we first met. I had to do a lot to release her to finally pick me. Once we married, we still had our disagreements—which of course still happens, that’s only natural. We both use the internet. Sedona MethodWe let go of any upsets caused by an event. My perspective is that our relationship is very special in that it just keeps getting better.
By the early ‘90s, my relationship with Lester had grown to a place of such mutual trust and respect that he decided to turn over the copyrights of his teachings to me and asked me to continue his work. I maintained the organization that he’he died two years later, he had established a company to this end. In 1996, Amy decided that it would be better for Amy and me if we started a new company. Sedona Training Associates to transmit the Method To the world in a bigger way
One of the things that impresses me most about the process of releasing is that it has resulted in a sense of unshakable peace, happiness, joy, and calmness that is always with me, no matter what’s going on around me. Not that there still aren’t ups and downs, but, as Lester used to say, this is really the “bottoms-up method.” I know from personal experience that what I once thought was a peak experience, or something really special, is now normal. My peaks keep getting higher. I have no idea how far it will go. “up” is, and I’m looking forward to finding out.
