A series of crises in the author’s life led her on an intensive search for solutions. The result is a new method of personal transformation that is simpler, gentler, more direct, and also appears to be more effective and dependable than previous approaches.
What makes Wholeness Work unique is that it’s based on a spiritual teaching about awakening—but goes farther to offer a method that’s specific, precise and universally accessible. You don’t need to have spiritual interest or beliefs to benefit.
In this book, you’ll find real-life stories from people who’ve done this work and report:
• A natural melting away of issues that previously seemed unresolvable
• An increased sense of wellbeing
• A deep relaxation and resetting of the nervous system
• Greater access to a natural wisdom, compassion, humor and creativity
This method has helped people with relationship issues, insomnia, difficult emotions, pre-migraine auras and much more. Even some physical issues have shown improvement. People report “It feels gentle—but has a powerful impact.”
Eastern Spirituality brings us concepts such as “enlightenment” and “loss of the ego.” But for many, the actual experience of these is mysterious and seems esoteric. Can a state of “enlightenment” actually be accessible to the ordinary person? In answering this question, Wholeness Work is a breakthrough in the fields of both spirituality and personal transformation. It isn’t a magic pill that you can try one time and then life is perfect. Instead, it’s a step-by-step approach that brings profound benefits to those seeking personal transformation and/or spiritual growth.
Doing the Wholeness Work feels like a kindness to yourself as you’re doing it; the only side effect is that your life continues improving—gradually and dependably.
If you want a simple, reliable, direct way to make life better, you’ve just found it.
Praise for Coming to Wholeness:
“This is a game changer. I was first introduced to the Wholeness Work by a coach who used the method with my wife and me to profound effect. It is the essential ingredient for all personal transformation— presented clearly in this gem of a book. I hope it opens worlds for you.”
—Jack Canfield, Coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul®
“Well done! Connirae Andreas has ‘transformed’ several centuries and approaches to self-awareness and meditation into her Wholeness Work. Her approach is very gentle, easy, simple and fluid, respectful and inclusive. From my study of Milton Erickson, I believe she has added much to Erickson’s work and healing approach in Coming to Wholeness. She says it best: It means that everything that had been getting in our way actually supports the meditation process.”
—Dr. Chris Gunn, Licensed Psychologist, Flagstaff, AZ
“At last, a manual for getting over ourselves. Beyond the self lies a whole world of being fully, spontaneously alive. Thank you, Connirae. This work is brilliant.”
—Stewart Emery, author, founding CEO of EST, creator of Actualizations, coffee maven
“Connirae’s Coming to Wholeness suggests the elegant simplicity of a captivating melody— it takes hold of you and effortlessly carries you along.

Read the reviews below from award winners, researchers, academics and best selling authors and take the step that can make the difference.
If you are into NLP, you may notice it can be hit and miss when it comes to finding good books which convey NLP and how to do it in an interesting, fascinating and even an exciting way.
Based on Bandler training, and edited by Steve and Connirae Andreas, 'Using Your Brain' definitely falls into the hit category. If you are like me, as you read along, it's like being at the actual training doing the actual exercises, learning from observing others, seeing their issues being resolved, appreciating how brilliant Bandler's thinking and reframing can be.
It's apparent that this book introduces the swish pattern which can be useful for changing compulsions and habits.
Working with submodalities was pretty new, and pretty exciting to work on something as one reads along. It's like being present at the invention of the wheel. Submodalities are the finer distinctions of your visual, auditory or kinesthetic representations.
For example, if you think about something you like that you would like to dislike, say alcohol or tobacco, your pictures, sounds or sensations of what you like and dislike are probably of different size and in a different location, intensity etc, so you can change the size and location of what you like to what you dislike, and stop desiring alcohol. Useful.
I also like the chapters on belief change, learning, and understanding confusion, which enables you to contrast the different pictures you make in different states, and how you can change them and make them more useful. I used this on singing technique and got many more favourable comments than usual.
Steve Andreas book Change Your Mind-And Keep the Change: Advanced NLP Submodalities Interventions was inspired partly by and intended to be read with this book, and discusses many things not discussed in this book such as Timelines, and also discusses the swish and submodalities in even more detail.
I hope you find this review helpful, and I believe you will enjoy the book...
Filled with examples and anecdotes, along with step-by-step outlines, this book makes it easy for you to apply the same methods that have helped many people around the world turn their hopes into reality. Every reader is certain to find many topics of personal relevance.
Even though this book is written as an introduction--no background is needed and it feels easy to read-- it includes the subtle understandings of these seasoned leaders in the field of NLP. You'll find material here that isn't included in other NLP books. The chapter on "Personal Timelines" for example, reveals how to easily uncover our individual ways of coding time, and how this sometimes forms the basis for our life struggles, and strengths.
The Andreases are able to offer you a potent and engaging access to the world of NLP through these methods refined by their years of experience teaching and working with others. An unusual book with many treasures for those wanting more out life. If you're interested in NLP, this is a book to be sure to read.
