    There's something incredibly powerful and unique in getting advice from a peer, someone who has shared a similar experience and journey as you. This Tuesday (August 20th), the call-in discussion group will be starting to explore the TMS book The Great Pain Deception, written by Steve Ozanich, who overcame thirty years of pain using the TMS approach. We'll be starting at the very beginning, with the Prologue and Chapter One (T M S - The Mindbody Syndrome).

    Since Forest is away, Eric "Herbie" Watson will be running the discussion. The official recorded discussion will start at 9pm Eastern Time (6pm Pacific Time), with an optional, very informal conversation 30 min or so beforehand. Quick connection details are as follows (for more in-depth info, visit go.tmswiki.org/connect):

    I'll call in at 8:30 pm central time.

    I've re-read the prologue of THE GREAT PAIN DECEPTION and am re-reading chapter One now.
    I've already learned a lot from it and it makes it clearer to me what I'm repressing. It goes back to
    my folks divorcing when I was about seven, then she married again fast, after a year left him and
    remarried my father, then he died when I was 21 and she married his brother who was an alcoholic
    and full of anger from two previous marriages. So I had FOUR fathers and no wonder it left me with
    security problems. My back pain came on about two years ago when my best friends nearby divorced.
    I had lost being part of another family and it brought back old insecurity and anger.

    Now I know all this, I believe TMS will heal the rest of my back ache.

    I enjoyed listening. It helps me feel more connected to those who take part. Great questions, Eric. Maybe some of these questions can be used as topics for new forum threads. Look forward to next week's installment. I barely noticed any of the technical difficulties you guys had.

    So were on BruceMC as opener and ill lead with
    our disclaimer and questions, giving examples
    I could send out the questions by Monday afternoon
    Although with bruce back he knows this book
    and Walt knows and studies so I might not need send-
    So we just go for it and shoot from the mind.

    Although truly if you'd like to ponder the questions ill
    have em ready-
    The questions can be a boggler of tms healing wealth

    This is for you too Walt.

    Thanks Guys

    Hey, it's a gorgeous Saturday in Ohio. I just signed in here and I saw this thread. I didn't get a chance to listen to the audio but if anyone has any questions please let me know. It has been interesting to see how people translate, or view things. If I can help, let me know, otherwise I will stay out of the way.

    Forest asked me a few weeks back to come by and talk one day. I've been on round one of an international book campaign for TMS, for the past 3 months. That phase ended last week. We're pulling back to let people digest what was thrown at them, and then we'll start round two. So it's a good time to get back here to the Wiki. I've been plugging this site every time I get a chance in interviews. It's the central hub for TMS, many doctors I've spoken to, and many people, including those in other countries, come here to learn. So don't think that you're not helping here, because you are, much more than you may realize. Dr. Sarno has talked about this place too.

    I'll try to post some of the 40 interviews that I've done once I figure out how. Healing comes through personal revelations that shed light on things that would prefer to remain hidden. And different things shed light in different ways for different people, so it's important to display all information. Bu--it has to be accurate information. There's too much confusion, and TMS feeds off of confusion.
