About Benoit Trudel
I now live in Tbilisi Georgia with my 2 adopted son, Rémi who is 13 years old and Simon, 9 years old. I have worked in international development for over 15 years from a deep desire to contribute to others and to make the world a better place. I am also now an Access Consciousness® Bars and Body Process Facilitator who enjoys giving Bars and Body Process sessions as well as facilitating classes and online calls. And yet, my story goes way back as I struggled with who I am and what is the meaning of my life.
Like many people, I have tried to figure out life from a very young age, and made myself so wrong for not getting it right and not fitting in. Growing up in my house was difficult for me where my father ruled on everything, and my mother was anxious and bed-ridden. I looked to the Church for solace on my own when I was 10 years old, made it somehow to a House of Forgiveness retreat at the age of 12 by myself, looking for answers. I seeked a psychologist at a hospital at the age of 16, feeling so much despair and anxiety about life. At the age of 17, I started to practice a Japanese type of Buddhism with daily chanting. I also took several personal growth courses and retreats while living in Vancouver. In my 20s, I went to Thailand and did long-term Vipassana meditation in a Buddhist monastery.
I tried so hard to please others, to do things right, to be responsible and only found my anxiety and depression increasing as the years went by. I got used to it, and figured that this was as good as life could get, and decided to make myself small and invisible. In 2015, a close friend of 25 years told me about Access Consciousness, and I told her that I didn’t do that stuff anymore since similar modalities had not worked out for me in the past. Somehow, I knew that there was something there for me but it took me a year to agree for her to teach me the Bars class. Not much happened at first and my life did not change. It actually got worse in the next few months until I just wanted to literally disappear from the Earth in total despair. At that point I decided to start using the Access tools, and within one week the despair was gone, there was joy in my life like I had not felt in decades, and a curiosity about who I really am.
I have not stopped since to take Access classes, to link up with people who are creating their lives as if by magic and I use the tools, Bars and Body Processes on a daily basis. My life is now like an every changing canvas of me. I must admit, I still feel like I know so much more is possible, and that the life I have right now is far from what I know I can create. And yet, I also know that I am in the process of actualizing who I truly want to be.
