Holographic Memory Resolution® (HMR) is a remarkable technique that efficiently, painlessly and permanently resolves emotional blocks that may be preventing the full enjoyment of a healthy, fulfilling and abundant life.

HMR® was developed by trauma resolution specialist Brent Baum over 15 years, working with more than 11,000 trauma survivors from the Oklahoma City bombing, the terrorist attack on 9/11, victims of sexual abuse, torture and more.

Our bodies have natural protective mechanisms that create an altered state of consciousness when we suffer stress and trauma, “capturing” and preserving the pain as a protective act. Painful experiences are stored in our subconscious and our body until we feel safe and ready to deal with them. However, the longer we let them go, the more likely they are to create physical problems as well as emotionally distorted ways of viewing and acting in the world – perceptions we often aren’t even aware of that hold us back from living authentically and maintaining a calm and peaceful state of mind.

HMR® is a body-mind technique that allows simple, easy access to past memories and the release and resolution of associated painful emotions, without having to re-live them. The technique begins with energy work, inducing a light meditative trance that allows the conscious mind to relax and that gently opens a very safe window into the subconscious. Guided visualization creates a self-healing process that reveals the history of a problem, pattern or illness, and resolves the attached emotions. Concluding energy work “locks in” positive changes to the subconscious, the body, and the energy field.

The client directs the healing at all times, choosing what he or she would like to address and resolve – physical issues, obsessive thoughts, recurring troublesome emotions. The process is profoundly empowering to clients, who often feel released from problems that may have been plaguing them for decades, and who start seeing the world and their life in a new and confident way.

Through personal work with over 12,000 trauma survivors, Brent Baum has developed innovative strategies for unlocking our innate power to free ourselves from the constraints of the past to live fully in the present. Trained as an archaeologist, a Catholic priest, an addictions counselor, clinical hypnotherapist and trauma specialist, this gifted therapist and teacher developed Holographic Memory Resolution, a process for empowering us to release trauma and the obstacles to authentic spiritual intimacy and conscious manifestation. The effectiveness of this body-centered, client-centered approach led to his involvement with the rescue personnel from the Oklahoma City bombing, the crisis team members from TWA Flight 800 in New York, survivors and rescue personnel from the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2001, and those impacted by Hurricane Katrina. He is one of a select group of alternative health practitioners at Miraval: Life in Balance, and maintains a private practice in Tucson, AZ. Brent teaches his approach internationally, conducting lectures, workshops and retreats throughout the world.
