Late last year, Sivananda Yoga Teacher and Reference Point Therapy Healer Ben Ralston published a short article on Elephant Journal enthusiastically sharing the story of one of his clients, Profound Healing: Depression and Thyroid Function.
Eighteen months after he’d seen her for one Reference Point Therapy healing session, this client was still experiencing total transformation from long-lasting depression, plus she’d never needed the thyroid surgery she’d had scheduled.
In the article Ben said:
This is why it is easy and fast to heal almost anything. We are meant to be healthy and happy. It is our birthright. And whatever is blocking our experience of that perfection is easy to let go of, because it’s not really who we are.
He was sharing something he thought was game-changing, exciting, and transformational. Readers didn’t agree. They called it alarming, dangerous, irresponsible and unethical. Ben was surprised at the reaction, and the debate that subsequently unfolded in the article through the 125 + comments that followed.
Now, on the suggestion of a Yoga Lunchbox reader, I decided to interview Ben and find out more about this type of healing and why he thinks it’s so effective. Is it for real? Is Ben for real? Judge for yourself.
