Introducing Dr. Willem Lammers
In this book, you’ll learn how a new and highly effective method of guided self-change can help relieve your toxic stress and anxiety. This methodology was discovered by Dr. Willem Lammers and is becoming increasingly popular in Europe and spreading to other parts of the world.
I am very honored that Dr. Lammers is offering this preface to my work.

The method presented in this book is the result of 40+ years of experience in the guidance of people on their life path. In these years I studied many approaches to coaching, counseling and psychotherapy, but again and again I came to the conclusion that there must be something more simple, more elegant, more effective. Coming of age as a professional in the sixties, I learned Transactional Analysis, Psychoanalysis, hypno-therapy, NLP, EMDR and many of the new models of energy psychology.
Between 2001 and 2005 I went through a crisis in my motivation and creativity as a professional: I was still convinced that there must be a more direct way to guide people through their pain, into their development. I also knew this way wouldn't be rooted in more concepts, more neurology and more techniques, but in a deeper understanding of human beings.
Human beings are more than biological machines with a wet computer between their ears. In reality, we are energetic manifestations of something bigger, wider and higher, which I call Essence, and this Essence is the answer to the question why we live here on earth. If we lose the connection to what we really are, we become the slaves of our biological and psychological needs, and if these needs are not fulfilled we're caught in fear, guilt, grief and greed.
From the increasing awareness that we are more than our physical body and our mind I discovered Logosynthesis in 2005, and I have spent my years since then to make it simple. First as a model for my colleagues in the healing professions, then as a method people could use for themselves to cope with the challenges of daily life.
Laurie Weiss, whom I deeply respect as a colleague, as an author and as a fellow human being, has taken the simplicity, elegance and effectiveness of Logosynthesis for self-coaching to new heights. Her use of examples from years of practice, her clear style of writing, her deep understanding of the theory and the method of Logosynthesis, all wrapped in a deeply human attitude are guaranteed to open your eyes and your heart to a new future for yourself and those who you love.
That doesn't mean that you have to solve every problem on your own. Our growing international community of Logosynthesis Practitioners is here to assist you on your path to healing, your path to discovering who you are and why you're here.
