What Is Rapid Eye Technology?

At the leading edge of personal growth today, Rapid Eye Technology (RET) is a revolutionary breakthrough in addressing emotional stress. RET is currently sweeping the nation as a faster, less painful way of reaching and releasing emotional elements of:

  • Abuse of all kinds
  • Addictions of all kinds
  • Depression, Anger and Grief
  • Family and Relationship Patterns

Basically any issue that causes emotional stress can be released, the body retrained, and the mind educated to think and react differently through the RET process and Skills for Life training.

RET consists of essentially two parts:

  1. Identify and release stress-causing factors on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level through the structured movement and blinking of the eyes (the RET process).
  2. Learn and apply new skills for life on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level to create what we would rather experience in life.

Deb Spendlove
DEB SPENDLOVE, RET Trainer
“I love Rapid Eye! My first RET session was 23 years ago. I knew then that I wanted to learn and practice this technique. It took commitment on my part to follow through with the sessions, training, and practice, but I did and it paid off big. I regularly attend trainings, which allows me to meet other technicians and hone my skills. I have loved the journey. I love RET!”
