What is Attitudinal Healing


Attitudinal Healing is a process of letting go of painful, fearful thoughts and attitudes.  When we let go of fear, only love remains.  Attitudinal Healing is based on the premise that it is not people or events or circumstances outside ourselves that cause us to be upset, rather it is our response to those events that cause our suffering.  We can choose to change our minds about our own responses.

The late Len Brutacoa, a longtime teacher in the Attitudinal Healing community and a dear friend to Jerry and Diane, wrote the following:

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude to me is more IMPORTANT than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say or do.  It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.  It will make or break a company, church or family.  The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past.  We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the evitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the one key we have and that is our attitude.

I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it.  So it is with all of us.  We are in charge of our attitudes.  I want you to keep this and review it whenever possible. It is important and meaningful.”

In their book, A Mini Course for Life, Jerry Jampolsky and Diane Cirincione wrote the following about Attitudinal Healing:

“What is it that you really want?  Would you like to feel more fully alive with a new energy and zest for living?  Would you like to learn how to have more inner peace in your life and less stress and fear?  Would you like to escape from emotional pain, depression, sorrow, and anxiety so that you might have more consistently loving experiences with everyone including yourself?  Would you like to learn how to heal your unhealed relationships without exception?

Would you like to learn more about how to let go of blame and guilt, shame and negative thinking, and to be more optimistic about your life and the world you see?  Would you like to learn how to let go of the painful past and live more consistently in the present?  Wouldn’t you like to go through the rest of your life not hurting or attacking anyone else or yourself?”

These are the experiences that are offered by Attitudinal Healing.
