Robert St. John – the founder of Metamorphosis – realised that most therapies focused  on the treating of symptoms (mental, physical, emotional) –  while the symptoms often went away after treatment,  they usually returned eventually or new symptoms arose. This was because the underlying stress pattern causing the symptom was not addressed. He also noticed that  because the underlying stress patterns of humanity have never been addressed we have always had war, conflict, illness etc. We can address all these problems by tuning into consciousness.
