From the Author:

A guide for the inner journey to the Self - a goal that can be achieved in this lifetime. This book should be a constant reference for those who wish to clear their personal issues in the search for spiritual transformation and inner truth. May this be a sounding board for your own experiences and concepts of the journey, and may it stimulate you to keep on exploring in your own way.    

Notes to Transformation explores the roots of man's predicament: As new-born babies are merged with everyone around them they take on their parent's emotions as their own. If mother is unconfident baby will absorb this as an energetic formation or node. These nodes are permanently imprinted long before the baby's mind can work out what is happening, and remain to modify become the foundation of personality.

The implications are very disturbing: the child cannot live his own life, but must include the life of his parents, and since they 'inherited' their nodes in the same way, he is also taking on the life of their parents, and before that of older generations long forgotten.

This book should be a constant reference for those who wish to clear their personal issues in the search for spiritual transformation and inner truth. You can read excerpts from some of the chapters in Notes to Transformation:


“John has written a remarkable book that is a must for anyone involved in transformational work. Its very simplicity comes out of his own depth of learning and experience and thus can serve as a guide and map to the ever-increasing numbers of seekers of personal and spiritual growth. We are pleased to recommend this book to you.”
Hal Stone, PhD and Sidra Stone, PhD, authors of "Embracing Ourselves" and creators of the powerful Voice Dialogue technique

“John has brought together in a most logical and readable way the information that is destined to support our personal transformation, from the secret life of the unborn child to the threshold of illumination. This book should become a basic text for transformational courses. I am clear that were the reader to use this book as a constant reference and master the material it contains, they will walk simply and lovingly 'in the dark' until they finally burst forth into boundless radiance.”
—Gita Bellin, author of "Amazing Grace" and co-founder of the Self-Transformation Seminars
