Praise for Laurence’s Book:

“Laurence has presented his wisdom in a very compassionate, cheerful and optimistic way with loving and well told stories. This is an important book to read.”
Gilad Shavit – Breathwork facilitator and trainer for trauma recovery

“As a trained obstetrician and gynaecologist, the most powerful part of the book for me was reading the example of the woman giving birth. This was a golden nugget! I also found the graphs with spiritual and material concerns powerful and the diagram outlining the various influences and factors that make us who we are. I am Natasha and the essence of who I am is made up of my parents and their history/ experiences. Soon after reading this book, I saw Henry Winkler (the Fonz from Happy Days) speak. He spoke of how his Thought Forms and patterns have been heavily influenced by his parents who fled Nazi Germany. The Fonz I reckon would resonate very much with Laurence’s book too.”
