Hey Gina, thanks for asking. One September 19 we covered chapter 1. That recording can be found by clicking here. The September 12 meeting was just starting up and because it covered personal stories, a recording isn't be distributed.

This Sunday, September 26, we'll cover Chapter 2. The recording will be posted here later on that afternoon.

Sorry about the error, guess I was ahead of myself. I have one question, did you recover using PRT?


Staff member
Yes, I did! I recovered before that term was coined, but the key thing is that I healed by overcoming the fear of my pain. Here's a video of my recovery story:

I thought there was a book group today..Sunday, Dec.12. Am I wrong. I've been waiting 20 min for it to launch on zoom, but nothing is happening

Hi Prema, thanks for reaching out! I'm afraid that there is no meeting scheduled for today.

We generally announce them in advance when there is a meeting, but it looks like we should have also announced the absence of a meeting. I will pass the message up the line.
