Lynne is a Real­ity Guide & Per­sonal Growth Men­tor. Lynne was edu­cated through a life time of study­ing and observ­ing meta­phys­i­cal life prin­ci­ples taught to her early in life, and learn­ing how to apply those prin­ci­ples to her own life in pos­i­tive ways. She has been shar­ing her find­ings with oth­ers and watch­ing their lives trans­form since the sev­en­ties, and has sup­ported her­self and her fam­ily through a pri­vate prac­tice, which was founded on those prin­ci­ples in 1985.

Lynne came up through the ranks of expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing rather than the more tra­di­tional aca­d­e­mic route. She started out in the men­tal health field in the early sev­en­ties, hired and trained by an HMO (health main­te­nance orga­ni­za­tion) in social work and men­tal health. She has been in the field of per­sonal growth ever since — mov­ing to the addic­tions field in the early eight­ies, where she was one of the pio­neers for co-dependency and fam­ily of ori­gin work in Chat­tanooga, Tennessee.

As a per­pet­ual stu­dent of life and con­scious­ness, Lynne has devoted her career to study­ing with mas­ters of var­i­ous dis­ci­plines. Fam­ily dynam­ics, Jun­gian prin­ci­ples; dreams and shadow work, psy­chodrama and energy as well as the laws of man­i­fes­ta­tion, body ori­ented prac­tices such as yoga, phys­i­cal unwind­ing and qigong are just some of the approaches Lynne applies in her work with others.

Through her work with clients, Lynne has devel­oped a unique under­stand­ing of how the mind works and ways to lib­er­ate it from the throes of what she calls the “vic­tim mind”.

Lynne teaches that we react to life in one of two ways — we’re either react­ing out of the vic­tim mind or we see life through the eyes of the observer self which wit­nesses with­out judgment.

The vic­tim mind is a state of con­scious­ness that prompts us to react as if what we feel, believe or do is caused by some­thing out­side of us. We see our­selves as being at the mercy of our life circumstances.

The observer mind, on the other hand, under­stands that there is only one cause to our unhap­pi­ness — and that is what’s going on in our own mind.

What dri­ves our mind are the thoughts we believe. Each of us oper­ates from a set of core beliefs which cre­ate a life theme that gen­er­ates the feel­ings which our behav­ior follows.

Lynne’s work is devoted to help­ing peo­ple find and clear the painful beliefs and ideas that have caused them dis­tress through a process of access­ing the Observer Self.

Lynne’s Per­sonal Transformation

Uti­liz­ing the process she shares with oth­ers, Lynne trans­formed her own health and consciousness.

On Dec. 16, 2006, I woke up to the fact that I was truly sick with chronic liver dis­ease … I was in con­stant phys­i­cal dis­tress — unable to digest food well and was so fatigued I could hardly get through my day.

That morn­ing I got up to pray and med­i­tate where I asked for insight and relief. I real­ized I’d been given the very resources I needed for heal­ing and I made a com­mit­ment to devote myself to a daily prac­tice of apply­ing them. I started that morning.

Six months later, I’d dropped the 40+ extra pounds (with­out diet­ing) which I’d been car­ry­ing for years and my health and con­scious­ness had com­pletely trans­formed! Today I am well, bet­ter than well, I thrive!”

–Lynne For­rest

Today, through indi­vid­ual ses­sions, groups and work­shops of var­i­ous kinds, Lynne facil­i­tates oth­ers in their own per­sonal growth process. Shar­ing with them the same tools and prin­ci­ples that brought her heal­ing. Lynne encour­ages clients to explore their own basic belief blue­print and move towards ways of lib­er­at­ing them­selves, men­tally and phys­i­cally, from the painful con­cepts that have held them prisoner.

Lynne and her hus­band Daniel oper­ate For­est Haven, a retreat for small groups, as well as large out­door gath­er­ings, out of their moun­tain home in Monteagle,Tennessee.
