The Trans­for­ma­tion Process

An embod­ied process com­bin­ing ancient phi­los­o­phy, modern psy­cho­log­i­cal under­stand­ing, and the lead­ing video tech­nol­o­gy

Cine­so­mat­ics is a feel­ing-based trans­for­ma­tion process uti­liz­ing video and move­ment to assess and resolve stuck somat­ic, psy­cho­log­i­cal, and emo­tion­al pat­terns.

The union of cin­e­mat­ic video, embod­i­ment, feed­back, and feel­ing-based aware­ness facil­i­tates unprece­dent­ed accu­ra­cy, speed, and results. Drew Gerald’s holis­tic tech­nol­o­gy offers a ver­i­fi­able, ground­ed method for prac­ti­cal heal­ing, trans­for­ma­tion, and advanced spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment.

Com­bin­ing ancient meth­ods with 21st-cen­tu­ry tech­nol­o­gy, Cine­so­mat­ics is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary approach to trans­for­ma­tion and ground­ed spir­i­tu­al devel­op­ment for pro­fes­sion­als world­wide. Using advanced video tech­nol­o­gy, we are able to facil­i­tate rapid and prac­ti­cal trans­for­ma­tion with clients in-person and online.

Cine­so­mat­ics requires an expert-level under­stand­ing of not just ther­a­py and facil­i­ta­tion, but also of film and tech­nol­o­gy. Decades of mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary train­ing and exper­i­men­ta­tion of var­i­ous heal­ing approaches—along with com­put­er and video technology—come togeth­er to make this a real­i­ty.

High­speed cam­eras and dis­plays, along with video record­ings of events and ses­sions, allow par­tic­i­pants to see the truth of how they show up—with the evi­dence on video. The level of detail and the abil­i­ty to slow down or speed up move­ments and behav­iors gives us unprece­dent­ed insight.

As tech­nol­o­gy has evolved, Cine­so­mat­ic tech has been clas­si­fied into two grades: “Pro­fes­sion­al” and “Cin­e­mat­ic”.

Cur­rent­ly, in-person work­shops are the only way to expe­ri­ence “Cin­e­mat­ic-Grade” Cine­somtics due to the high-end equip­ment required.

All in-person events are record­ed and under­go post-pro­duc­tion video edit­ing. These videos syn­chro­nize the move­ment review footage with par­tic­i­pant views—allowing par­tic­i­pants to view full HD replays for the final level of feed­back. This final replay allows us to see how we respond­ed to the feed­back given during the event or ses­sion, giving us a fur­ther layer of reflec­tion to inte­grate.

“Pro­fes­sion­al-Grade”

Any use of video-review with move­ment, feel­ing, and feed­back is con­sid­ered Cine­so­mat­ics. To be “Pro­fes­sion­al-Grade”, the video qual­i­ty must be suf­fi­cient for prop­per review at var­i­ous speeds, and the entire ses­sion must be record­ed for replay review. Nearly all modern equip­ment can pro­vide this level.

During online events and ses­sions, pro­fes­sion­al-grade soft­ware is used to record and review video footage of par­tic­i­pants over the inter­net. Ses­sion video replays are made avail­able to par­tic­i­pants after the call ends.

“Cin­e­mat­ic-Grade”

Our pro­pri­etary process uses the same high-end cin­e­matog­ra­phy tech­nol­o­gy as Hol­ly­wood to record par­tic­i­pants’ move­ments at incred­i­bly high speeds and detail.

These high frame/refresh rates of both camera and mon­i­tor allows us to uncov­er all the “hidden data” we trans­mit uncon­scious­ly to the world—the uncon­scious infor­ma­tion which nor­mal­ly gets looked right past. This gives us 4–8x the amount of data and ther­a­peu­tic infor­ma­tion shown through the move­ment. Replays are of sub­stan­tial­ly higher res­o­lu­tion.
