Review of "Phrases to Freedom" by Willem Lammers

In ancient traditions, the power of words has always been used for healing. Willem Lammers' new book, "Phrases to Freedom" presents a new model for the use of words and phrases to resolve negative beliefs, to change disturbing emotions and to lift the burden of physical pain.

After many years of research and practice, Swiss/Dutch psychologist Dr. Willem Lammers managed to transform ancient knowledge and modern theory into an elegant model for guided change: Logosynthesis. "Phrases to Freedom" teaches you step-by-step how to use this model in finding and applying the phrases for your own healing and growth.

Learn how to retrieve your energy locked up in limiting fears, negative beliefs and traumatic memories and to clear your personal space from the energy of others. The simple procedure enables you to find your innermost life path.

Logosynthesis™ is embedded in a holistic view of human nature and has been proven effective in coaching and psychotherapy. This highly readable book presents the use of the power of words as a self-help tool...

Phrases to Freedom: Self-Coaching with Logosynthesis

Willem writes about Logosynthesis:
I have developed a method to ease human suffering and to promote personal growth. It consists of a model, principles for change, and actual interventions embedded in a integral view of human nature. I call the method Logosynthesis. The name combines two words from ancient Greek familiar to our culture: logos is Greek for "meaning," "mind," "word" or "teaching." The Greek word synthesis means "putting together" or "combining" and refers to the integration of fragmented parts of a person in the Self. The "putting together" can also be understood as "making whole" or "healing."

Therefore you can literally translate Logosynthesis as "healing with words." It's no coincidence that the term recalls some of the concepts from Victor Frankl's Logotherapy (1987) and Roberto Assagioli's Psychosynthesis (1993). Frankl's concept evolved from three basic philosophical and psychological tenets:

  • Life has meaning under all circumstances.
  • Our main motivation to live is the will to find meaning.
  • We are free to find meaning in our experiences and in what we do.

It is Victor Frankl's achievement to be one of the first to expand psychotherapy to include the spiritual dimension. For Assagioli, the founder of Psychosynthesis, as well, the interaction of body, mind and soul was a given. Logosynthesis builds on my thirty years of experience in guiding human change. It is a pragmatic synthesis of the principles of many schools of change: psychotherapy, energy psychology and age-old healing wisdom. Specialists from different schools of thought will therefore discover features of their own models in Logosynthesis. However, this extremely elegant combination of these working principles is unique.

As an introduction to this revolutionary system for guided change, you can download Introduction to Logosynthesis, a 13-page illustrated PDF.
