When a friend told me about Pathwaves, I was pretty skeptical. But I was also desperate to try anything to relieve me of the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I had endured a series of traumatic events in my life starting at a very young age, but the one that finally took me over the edge was a very public incident that occurred in 1996. Ever since, I lived, or rather, existed, with the symptoms associated with chronic Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, nightmares, flashbacks, panic attacks, disassociation, hyper-vigilance, feelings of mistrust and betrayal, emotional numbness, and so on.

I had tried therapy, antidepressants, and anxiety medication for over 10 years before learning about Pathwaves. The antidepressants made me feel numb, I hated feeling drugged, and I wasn’t feeling any better about myself or my life. All of my symptoms were still affecting me. So, I decided to give Pathwaves a try.

Following a free consultation, I decided to begin a series of Neural Empowerment sessions with Geoffrey Cole, founder of Pathwaves. I began with two sessions a day for the first five days. Lo and behold, my anxiety diminished significantly. There was hope! I continued with 10 more sessions, and experienced a dramatic change. I was waking up in the morning and not feeling anxiety! What a relief! Thirty sessions later, I was practically symptom-free.

It’s been over six years since I discovered Neural Empowerment. I still visit on occasion when I feel in need of a little reinforcement, but I have never returned to the way I once felt. I am living free of anxiety, depression, panic attacks and all of the other symptoms that were driving me insane – with no medication! That, to me, is a miracle!

I can truly say that I am happy; that I see life from a totally different perspective, and I truly embrace each day. Friends and family witnessed my transformation, and as a result, many of them became Pathwaves clients – all for different reasons. Some had problems sleeping, others had OCD, ADD, ADHD, etc., or they simply wanted to be more focused and feel better. The quality of life of each and every one of them has improved thanks to Pathwaves.

I am so very thankful to Geoff Cole and the entire staff for changing my life. My desire is that others learn about this incredible life-altering process. Everyone can benefit – it is amazing!!!

Pathwaves, I can’t thank you enough!

Ana Margarita Martinez

I’ve suffered from depression, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, anger issues, eating disorders, phobias, social anxieties, sleep difficulties, fear, and post traumatic stress disorder for as long as I can remember due to severe childhood trauma. I’ve tried just about every possible therapy to overcome these challenges, but nothing ever gave me lasting results until I discovered Pathwaves. While I’m still in the process of recovery, I already see exceptional positive changes in myself – reactions that are completely new to me. I am more assertive and confident than I have ever been in my life. I smile and talk to strangers. I ask questions and expect an answer. I feel in control of my life, decisions, emotions, feeling and thoughts. I’m able to stop negative thoughts before they overpower me. For the very first time in my life, I feel like I run “the show.” I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and replaced with feeling joyful, optimistic, and carefree. Suddenly, I sleep less, eat better, and I’m talking with my parents who I avoided for several months. I am currently looking for a new job and making plans for the future, and, for thefirst time, I’m hopeful about life and the opportunities it might bring. Thank you all!

Re: Daniel Ruano

Daniel was born with certain abnormalities. After surgery to correct one of his conditions Daniel “coded” in the recovery room. MRIs revealed severe brain trauma to all four hemispheres of the brain and the medical prognosis was not optimistic.

This was a very stressful time for the family and we sought comfort and solace in prayer and by placing our trust in God’s care and guidance.

Daniel’s mom, Kenia, saw a news story on Univision. Coincidentally, another relative also saw the program which spoke of the brain trainingmethod called Neural Empowerment performed at Pathwaves. Relatives began calling relatives and we all sensed that this was more than just chance but an answer to our prayers.

We contacted Geoff Cole explaining Daniel’s medical condition. Geoff was cautious to not give us any false expectations because of Daniel’s age and medical history. But Daniel was destined to become the first infant under 2 years old to receive Neural Empowerment.

Baby Daniel to everyone’s surprise began to react positively after the first session with Geoff. The first notable change was that Daniel began sleeping at night, which was a relief for the family and for Daniel.

After a few sessions Daniel began to focus his eyes, track moving objects and become more aware of his environment. He observed objects on the walls next to his bed and even began making new vocal sounds. He began to cry to express his discomfort, hunger and the desire to be cuddled.

We have seen improvement with each session and are very grateful to Geoff Cole and his wonderful staff for their care, positive attitude and support. We would recommend any parents hoping to improve the quality of life for their child, no matter the handicap, to seriously consider Neural Empowerment as a supportive therapy.

Rev. Frank A Cebollero, M.Th.

I am 44 years old and a professional fitness athlete, model, and makeup artist. I have suffered from depression most of my life and really have known no other way to live. As a child, I was raised in a very suppressed, controlling environment, where it was not permitted to have feelings or to own an opinion. Consequently, I shut off all the switches and dared not make a decision or take responsibility for my life. In my 30’s the depression worsened. I woke every day to feelings of anxiety and struggled to get out of bed and face life. All I felt was hopelessness and desperation.

One day a friend, who was familiar with Geoff and Skip, called me up and asked me how I felt on a scale of 1-10. I was sitting at about a 3 … not good.

I ended up going to Pathwaves for 8 days and took 20 sessions in that time period. During my first assessment, they told me how I was feeling (depressed, anxious, fearful, paranoid) without me telling them anything. They also explained that there was no reason for me to feel this way. They explained that my brain chemistry was altered in order to cope with the environment in which I was raised. They said they could help me by building new neural pathways in my brain.

I remember on the 3rd day waking up with no anxiety in the pit of my stomach for the first time in forever. It was a strange feeling for me to actually feel like getting out of bed in the morning. Upon finishing the 20 sessions, I went back home to Las Vegas. I can honestly say that I truly started LIVING from that point forward. I remember saying “so THIS is what it feels like to LIVE??”. The desperation and hopelessness were gone. I had no more anxiety or fear. A calmnesshad come over me that allowed me to deal with life’s situations. I felt worthyand ready to go and achieve anything that I wanted in life. I have not suffered from depression since. I feel like I’m 20 years old again! Look out world!!! Here I come!!

EG, IFBB Professional Figure athlete

Eighteen months ago I was completely incapable of leaving my parents’ home. I did not even feel safe in my own bedroom. Once, when my mother took me to a small restaurant, I was so intimated by the prospect of ordering, of speaking to the waitress, of making any kind of decision, that I froze and we had to leave quickly. Eighteen months ago panic attacks were ninety percent of my life. They were so severe that I could not watch TV, could not talk to two people at the same time, and couldn’t think rationally or logically. I had so much anxiety that my mind could turn any moment of peace into a new a crippling fear. I lived in a state of constant terror, prompting my mentor, Dr. Skip Flynn, to perceptively refer to me as a “raw nerve.”

Before my paralysis I was living and working in the mountainous, but tiny (former) kingdom of Nepal. Nepal was emerging from ten years of civil war between royalist security forces and Maoist insurgents. My work, sponsored by a fellowship from the University of Chicago, was to liaison with a local human rights organization and “observe the cease-fire.” In reality, the cease-fire was anything but, and my days consisted of fieldwork at various protests and rallies (most of them extremely violent), extensive interviews with victims of horrendous rape and torture, detailing accounts of missing and disappeared persons, and investigations of abuse and cease-fire violations by both warring factions and various criminal groups. It is hard to say that my work was even slightly beneficial to those I sought to serve, but I was effective enough to have at least one group threaten me with assassination.

My time in Nepal was lonely and violent. When I wasn’t personally living in a world of chaos, I was detailing accounts of unspeakable violence. I tried to calm my nerves by traveling for pleasure when my work ended – assuming that I could not immediately return to the United States without some decompression. I traveled extensively in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia to ease the tension and stress, to forget the violence of Nepal. This backfired spectacularly.

“Skip, my mentor, once had me count how many times I almost died – how many times I should have died if one small variable had not saved me. Since my entire presence in Nepal revolved around death, remembering my own brushes with death was a surprising challenge. In Nepal there were eleven instances where I personally confronted death. My twelfth encounter occurred in Laos and continued into Thailand – I was bitten by a rabid dog, hitched rides on a truck and a boat, bribed a border guard, and slowly but purposely made my way to Bangkok, Thailand and the most prestigious center for rabies studies in the world.

I was told that I would likely die in four days. I might live if I took copious amounts of medicine, but rabies was inherently unpredictable and I would have to wait four days to be sure. This set the stage for many of the physical expressions of anxiety I would later develop. The side effects of the medicine, the mental consequences of confronting death, and the emotional fallout of my experiences in Nepal combined to establish a devastating case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The full effects of PTSD manifested when I returned to the United States. Eighteen months ago I was paralyzed and although I was physically living safely at home I was emotionally living in a world of severe violence with the fear of death ever present.

The next eighteen months were marked by three to five intense therapeutic conversations each week with my mentor Skip, a grueling workout plan, and endless bouts of panic and anxiety. Because we had a five-year relationship that dated to a period when we were both working as volunteer teachers in northeastern China, Dr. Skip and I were able to work effectively by telephone. He was based in Miami and I was hiding in my parents’ Park City, Utah basement. I progressed well and eventually left my house. I gradually spokeamong groups of people (I distinctly remember talking in a group of four and considering it a massive accomplishment), and reclaimed a quality of life by inches. It was immediately clear that I was a different person and I found, with Skip’s help, how to appreciate and give deep thanks for my transformation. Still, I was beset with daily panic attacks, daily reminders of fear, and in a perceptual state of intrinsic anxiety.

“When I arrived in Florida to visit Skip and to meet Geoff, I considered myself healthy and doing well. My panic attacks were still daily (from one to seven and requiring anywhere from a few minutes to hours to recover), and I still spent a considerable amount of mental energy overcoming them, but I had learned to live this way and I considered it normal. When Skip told me that soon I would not have to struggle daily, that I would be free of my anxiety, I literally broke down and cried. I could not imagine living without those demons.

“Today, after twenty two sessions with Geoff, I am as light as a feather. I have none of the serious physical ‘ticks’ that I carried with me as a result of the rabies vaccine. Situations that would have sent me into a tailspin only a few months ago brush off me and hold no power over me. I am in complete control of my mind whereas before it would run wild and I was its prisoner. Amazingly, I have not had a significant panic attack in over five weeks. At times I will see an invitation to a panic attack (one my mind would never have resisted months ago), but now the invitation will quietly float by without trouble or any concern on my part. This is, simply put, phenomenal. What Skip and Geoff were able to give me I could never repay. I am a man reborn.

Pathwaves has unequivocally changed the quality of my life. It is a technology that achieves formidable results, which in my case can be measured both quantitatively and qualitatively. The technology appealed to me on a spiritual level, and even more so intellectually.

I came to the center with a high level of anxiety, and little to no expectation for improvement. Upon waking each morning, I would have to wade through a quagmire of negative self-talk, fear, anxiety, mild depression, and fatigue. At the time, I had been taking 40 mg of Paxil daily for over seven years.

The results yielded by Pathwavesare the type I would expect pitched to me by a snake oil salesman: “Lose ten pounds in two weeks”, “quit smoking”, “put away those SSRIs”, and “increase efficiency.” All of these things actually came to fruition for me, merely as byproducts of the training itself. Let me be clear. None of these were the intended goal of my Neural Empowerment sessions! I simply signed on to quiet my mind and get a modicum of peace and clarity.

My brain has been lovingly and patiently trained by a technology I consider my own personal “rent a guru.” My best description of the Pathwaves Protocol would be this: an intensive set of sessions with a Tibetan Monk that could see and hear what goes on in my brain several times per second and who lovingly reminds me to refocus it when it goes astray.

I know that I am now far better suited to tame the unbridled might of over 100 billion neurons within my brain (each of which can fire over 1000 instructions per second). The peace, joy and serenity that this acquired skill gives me is beyond anything I could put a price on. Learning how to quiet one’s mind and willfully focus on what is happening in the infinite and dynamic stream of the present is exactly what this technology affords me. I simply wish this stuff was available en masse, to anybody who felt they could use it. The world would be a very different place.

I am a 58-year-old Trial Lawyer in California. As a result, I have plenty of anxiety and stress. I flew from California to work with Geoff specifically. I can unequivocally say that Pathwaves is the best thing I have done for my life. I recommend it 100% and send people to Geoff continuously. The changes he can bring you are powerful, life-changing, and long-lasting. I know because of what he did for me.

Neural Empowerment reduced my anxiety and stress from an 8 to a 1 within the first week. It helped me to sleep 8-10 hours uninterrupted every night for the first time in 30 years, and it completely eliminated the brain churning and rumination that once kept me awake for hours. It was, truly, a miracle. The results have continued undiminished.

Neural Empowerment also helped me battlealcoholism. It eliminated the triggers for alcohol, which had troubled me. I wish Neural Empowerment had existed when I underwent rehabilitation for alcoholism. It is truly the most powerful tool I know and I recommend it to everyone who talks with me about their struggles.

Neural Empowerment is like pressing the “reset” button on your brain, getting it back to normal, and eliminating behaviors that no longer work for you.

I am happy to talk with anyone about this. All you need to do is email me at phil@askphilwalker.com.

I had suffered with anxiety as far back as I can remember. At times I was able to “walk through” my anxiety. And, at times my anxiety and panic attacks were so overwhelming that I could not and did not leave my house for weeks at a time. I don’t think I will ever truly be able to verbalize how hopeless and desperate I felt then. The week before I started Pathwaves I had one of my worst panic attacks. What made this one so bad was that it happened with my family, at their house, which had always been a “safe” place for me, and there was no apparent reason for it. I felt like I was slipping back into that place where I was afraid to leave home and became even more anxious because I was a full time student, and couldn’t afford to miss classes. I remembered a conversation I had with a friend who had gotten relief with chronic pain from Pathwaves and he thought it might help for my anxiety.

I didn’t expect much. After trying medications, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, books, etc., this was going to be my last shot at getting better. I was extremely skeptical of the treatment, and even if I wouldn’t have been, I believed my anxiety and panic attacks were so severe that it couldn’t help anyway.

After my first week of treatment I started to test the waters a tiny bit to see if it was really working, and to my surprise- IT WAS!!! I was beginning to feel more at ease in situations that used to make me extremely uncomfortable. There was this particular situation- one that, in the past, had always caused a full blown panic attack. This was going to be the true test of whether or not this therapy actually worked, and it wasn’t until the end of my therapy that I felt confident enough to try it out. As I was driving into this situation, it wasn’t until I was about half way there that I realized I hadn’t even thought about my anxiety. It was simply a non-issue. For the first time ever, I didn’t feel or act on the need to escape. My hands were steady and dry. I wasn’t nauseous. My heart didn’t feel like it was going to jump out of my chest, and most importantly, my head wasn’t racing a mile a minute trying to figure out what excuse I was going to concoct to get out of this. In fact, I felt a bit of happy excitement. I don’t know how or why it worked, but it did!

Since then, I’ve had countless of other positive experiences. Doing things that I was once too afraid to do is starting to become natural to me. Every once in a while I find myself in a situation where I am absolutely amazed at my own ability to handle and enjoy life!

From my very first session, everyone at Pathwaves made me feel comfortable and cared for. I was able to talk openly about my symptoms and skepticism without embarrassment. It was wonderful to feel embraced and fully supported every step of the way. I really can’t thank you enough, or express how grateful I am for your help. You’ve made the impossible truly possible for me. I can finally live without fear.

I originally came because I was a chronic re-lapser, so I wanted to control my cravings. Not only have they gone away, I’ve received so much more. I feel no anxiety. I’m much calmer. I don’t snap at people, but instead pause and rationalize. I was taking PM medication to sleep and ever since my 1st session I haven’t had the need to take them again. I’m noticing details throughout my day I didn’t before. The tension on my back and shoulders has dissolved. I’m much more focused, which seems to be manifesting itself in my business in a very positive manner. This has been a true life changing experience. I will forever be grateful. I strongly recommend it to everyone.

I’ve also recovered my voice. Literally! I used to love to sing as a young girl and wanted to get into music but my mother always opposed it. Somewhere along the way I lost my voice. Well, ever since my second session I am able to sing again. I’m so happy. It’s a miracle!
