Guillaume Vincent, my story.
I was born and raised in France, the tragic death of my mother, when I was sixteen, deeply influenced my growth and the choices that I would later on make.
In France I became an engineer and practiced in New Zealand and the United States. After a few years in the profession, I felt that engineering no longer fitted my growth and was called by oriental medical school. Principals of balance, harmony between elements, between individuals and groups, and at a bigger scale between us, the world and the universe, were introduced to me. I became and acupuncturist, a herbalist and a massage therapist. During these years I also joined a group focused around depth psychology and body energetic. I was introduced to many different healing approaches, amongst them energy fields, their manipulation, their integration, Native American healing, breath-work, trauma release techniques, and what would change my life, the phenomenology of constellation work. I then chose to deepen my connection with the work and became a constellation facilitator.
All of this had a profound impact on my growth and the inspiration of my work. I had found other canvasses that I would later on choose to name streaming arts. After a few years practicing medicine, in California and in the mountains of Colorado, where I was offering conventional medicine (acupuncture, herbology) to some and spiritual medicine to others. I realized that one could not be separated from the other. I noticed how all addictions, injuries, diseases and health conditions are signs and symptoms of a deeper, profound, now constitutional inner conflict, between the self, its family, its work and its place in the world. Most patients had found relief with conventional medicine, or were still looking. Some had been prescribed drugs or received some type of traditional therapy. But the core of the individual and his suffering had not yet been able to be explored. Transformative medicine had never been introduced to them.
The opposite was also true; many had been exposed to some type of soul/spiritual work, but did not get access to embodying the information they received at a cellular level. They stayed in an ethereal world, they were not grounded with the energy they received, unable to fully integrate it in their everyday life with their own health, their families or work.
It was then critical for me to find a way to emphasize and offer wholeness medicine to integrate these two approaches. The physical body and the individual depth needed conventional and transformative medicine together. Based on what I had learned, discovered and the transformations that I experienced with others, I decided to change my approach to healing. From this was born Transformation Streaming.
It took me quite some time to figure out how to integrate it. When I first started sharing my vision I received a lot of blank stares, a lot of “what are you talking about?”. It was a very personal development in which I had to work hard – and still am – to find a way to convey it. I experienced rejection and deep struggles, my entire practice and my whole life was being transformed. My wife and family’s support especially my grandmother’s, as well as the excitement of a few close friends helped me to focus. These were difficult times, but little by little it started taking shape and Transformation Streaming came out of its cocoon. Patients, now Transformees: students of transformation, were coming for healing, workshops were created, connections developed.
Transformation Streaming (T.S.):
A new contemporary and innovative approach to healing focused on physical & transformative integration of mind, body & spirit within individuals, families, organizations, groups, cultures, nature and environment.
T.S. focuses on what the soul, mind, body and spirit need at this very moment, for its growth & healing.
Just like a stream meets rocks, caves, valleys to reach the ocean, so is one’s transformation. Sometimes we find ourselves flowing and sometimes stuck.
For the transformation to take place it needs a stream, a vehicle. This stream is the individual himself. Our own stream takes us to new valleys, and in these valleys we meet other streams. Some are stuck in between obstacles, some found a way to keep flowing or had to transform to be able to move on. These flowing, transformed ones can teach us about what they discovered and what they are still learning. They help “streaming”, guiding toward what is needed for the individual’s healing & growth, so that his stream can start flowing again. These healers are called Streamers: students and facilitators of transformation.
Medical & transformative programs were then created around Transformation Streaming. They consist of the use of medicines and practices such as family & systemic constellation work, acupuncture, body work, herbology, breath-work, Qi Gong, Body energetic, soul work such as Animism, Native American medicine, Shamanism, Spiritualism, Divination, New Consciousness Guidance… I chose parts of these practices that brought me another understanding of life and powerful healing.
Each of these medicine and practices belongs to a specific canvass, or layer. Each layer is a specific dimension of our existence; we are made of many. They touch us from the cellular level up to our organs and muscles, to our bones and ligaments, to the energies that make our blood flow, keep our organs in place and strengthen our immune system. All the way up to our smiles & tears, to what we fear & love, to the connection with our soul, our place in the world and where we come from.
Our being oscillates, during each very moment, between our physical body, breath, thoughts & longing. Our thoughts themselves appear and disappear as a dance between our mind and soul, thus influencing our spirit. For Transformation Streaming this oscillation is its focus. Where does one find himself at this very moment? In which dimension or layer does the individual need attention for her growth and health?
The transformation does not stop at our physical body and our soul, but continues in the integration of the true self in the family, in organizations, in nature and environment. One cannot be whole unless all around her is an expression of herself.
So many of us find that family or work is about supporting ourselves and going through the tough times. We may have the belief that we are powerless, that being fully ourselves is not always welcomed, or maybe not enough. A strong feeling of unworthiness can be present. What if I told you that all of this was just programming we inherited from our life story and lineage, and can be healed.
Our uniqueness and balance comes from the allowing of our true-self to be present in every action and decision we take for ourselves, within our families, within our work and organizations, and how we connect and respect nature and the environment.
Family, work and nature are representations and dimensions of ourselves, they are our mirrors and we are theirs. The powerful relationship between giving and receiving is at the core of our connection with these dimensions and of our health, community and economy. When out of balance it causes stress that can be expressed in the form of disease, constitutional condition, or emotional suffering. It deeply impacts our well being, our connection with our friends and loved ones and to a bigger extend the world. These three dimensions are part of us that cannot be separated from our healing.
“The integration of Physical health | EcoDevelopment, Nature & Environment | Inspirational Arts, Creativity | Tribal Awakening, Community Building | Family | Business & Organization is Transformation Streaming.”
Stay open and welcome the transformation,
Excited to deepening the journey together,
Guillaume Vincent, Streamer
