On 19.10.2017 I did an interview with Hans TenDam, one of the worlds leading regression therapists.
The interview addresses:
- the difference between regression therapy and other approaches of psychotherapy
- the difference between his approach, which he calls transpersonal regression therapy, to other approaches of regression therapy
A client of mine recommended Hans to me, and the first thing I found from him was an article that discusses five different approaches to past life regression. I found this an extremely well though-through and yet also concise description of regression therapy and its different approaches.
The Article: http://www.earth-association.org/articles/past-life-therapy-by-hans-tendam/
I then got his book „Deep Healing“ and started to include some of his practices in the sessions with my clients. I immediately noticed improvements and so I decided that I must learn more from this man. At the time of this interview, I am enrolled in a regression therapist teaching programs he offers in Holland together with two other wonderful teachers, Claudine Bonnet and Marion Boon. The book you can find here: https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/TenDam (English, German and other languages are available).
The German title is „Tiefenheilung und Transformation“.
Further on in the interview I ask questions to explore more details of his approach in comparison to the approach of Jan Erik Sigdell (Christian Reincarnation, his books here: http://amzn.to/2BgMhjB), which is the approach I have been using so far:
- his opinion on asking for outside help during a session. I know he doesn’t do it, so I ask him why not.
- Also I am asking about his approach to including interaction with the higher self as part of the method. I know he doesn’t include it, and I am asking to find out why.
- I then ask him about how important he regards forgiveness in regression therapy.
- Do beings go through an evolution of consciousness?
- Is it possible also that beings degenerate beyond hope? Can it be necessary to give up on a being?
- You do regression to Life Review and Life Planning stages. Did you find a common overall theme from your clients regarding what the purpose of life is?
In the end he will explain why he calls his approach transpersonal, and he will also talk about the success rates of transpersonal regression therapy – in general and with regard to specific disorders. And he will explain why he calls it the queen of therapies.
Ok, so now you have some context for the interview. Make sure to also check out the links further below. Enjoy!
I also did several interviews with Marion Boon, also an outstanding therapist and a colleague of Hans. You can find them here: https://tasso-regressionstherapie.de/rueckfuehrungstherapie/marion-boon/
