Q. What does the name "Vivation" mean?
A. The name is based on the Latin word "Vivere",
(meaning "to live") and was created by Jim Leonard to be a
distinct and unusual moniker for what he was teaching at the
time—"Integrative Rebirthing." He wanted to distinguish this
process from Rebirthing because Rebirthing focuses on
healing the "birth trauma," whereas Vivation heals emotional
pain and trauma from any time of life.
Q. How does Vivation differ from Rebirthing?
A. Rebirthing stresses achieving the "release" of
negative emotions, while Vivation proposes "integration" of
the negative energy and emotions into feelings that will
contribute to your overall sense of well-being. There are no
emotions that need to be gotten rid of in Vivation, they are
all valuable and can be used for your benefit.
Q. How do I know it will work for me?
A. Vivation will work for anyone with a sincere
desire to increase their happiness, peace, and overall sense
of well-being. Vivation uses the body's own impulse toward
balance to achieve this transformative shift.
If you are able to follow simple instructions, breathe,
feel, and have the willingness to engage in the process for
your own betterment, it will definitely work for you. The
only individuals that Vivation doesn't benefit are those who
do not have the willingness to change.
Q. Is Vivation weird?
A. Vivation is a very down-to-earth, practical method
to achieve emotional resolution. Vivation is no weirder than
having your behavior governed by deep, unresolved issues
that cause you to act in ways that are not in your best
interest. No weirder than working at a job you hate for
years or staying in a relationship you've outgrown. No
weirder than overeating or bingeing constantly to keep extra
weight on because you're afraid of intimacy. These behaviors
are weird, but so socially accepted that they've become
Vivation is the opposite of weird— it's the skill of
happiness—learning how to take the lemons that life often
hands us and making lemonade.
So NO, Vivation is not weird. NOT learning Vivation is
Q. How does Vivation reduce stress?
A. Vivation permanently reduces stress by eliminating
the internal causes of discomfort so efficiently that the
internal turmoil becomes non-existent. After practicing
Vivation for a while, people begin to notice that the things
that used to bother them no longer do, and that all of their
emotions contribute to their well-being rather than detract
Q. How does Vivation work with Loving Yourself Thin for
A. Most compulsive overeaters USE food rather than
EAT it. They use food to try to solve other problems in
life, which cannot actually be solved by food or eating.
Some people keep weight on because they do not want to be
seen or being thin makes them feel too vulnerable. Some have
been hurt in relationships and the extra weight is a good
way to make sure they are not too attractive, or the target
of sexual attention. Vivation resolves all these negative
feelings at their source, and frees the compulsive overeater
to make choices based on what helps them to achieve their
goals for themselves. Negative emotions no longer govern
your behavior, or cause you to act compulsively.
