Welcome to Walter's
Sunan Therapy Page!
I have been a Sunan therapist since 1990, helping clients to
remove obstacles from their lives and reclaim the power they were
created to exercise. As a therapist and as a healer, it is very satisfying
to me when clients are able to get new insights into the forces that
motivate and control their lives. It is even more exciting to see them use
these insights to make significant life changes. Seeing these changes
in my clients continually motivates me and reminds me of the reasons that
initially drew me to the therapies of the Sunan Process.
What is the Sunan Process?
Sunan is a remarkable group of therapies that can provide insight and understanding into the forces
that shape your daily life and influence the choices and decisions you make. Many
levels of a personís being are explored. Physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual
transformation and healing can occur through the processes of forgiveness and release.
The Sunan process takes place in a light altered state of consciousness similar to meditation or
prayer. As a client you will fully participate in the process of your own healing and will
retain details of the session in conscious memory after the therapy has been completed.
A prerequisite to the Sunan Process is commitment to self growth. Your therapist will help you
to examine decisions and issues that are currently active in your life. Forgiveness of
self and others, and the release of growth restricting energy patterns are some of the goals
your therapist can help you to achieve.
Sunan can work to bring about many life changes. It can heal emotional and spiritual
distress, replace destructive thought patterns with creative ones, and bring about
integration and cooperation among all levels of a personís being. Although no one can provide
any guarantees, Sunan can promote the well being of the physical body by changing or removing
nonphysical factors of physical diseases and imbalances.
each client is unique and personal. Each session is conducted privately with only you and
your therapist present. Therapy is scheduled after an initial consultation with the therapist.
Depending on the client's needs, any one of the five
therapies that rely on the Sunan process of healing resolution through unconditional love
may be chosen.
My Introduction to the Sunan Method
In January 1989 I went to a New Years Day Psychic Fair looking for a
little entertainment. I ended up meeting two people who would help me
change the course of my life. I was working at that time in the research division
of a large semiconductor firm in Dallas, Texas. At age 36 I had a rewarding
career in high technology research and development. In my heart, however,
I knew that there had to be more to my life than developing smaller and
faster silicon technology. From the moment I met them, I was struck by
how different Jana Simons and Candace Talmadge seemed from the
other vendors at the fair. I felt comfortable with them as they
demonstrated a psychic art technique which allowed them to relate
information to me from a picture that they had me draw. The technique was
interesting but it was the sincerity of the two women that impressed me
most. Jana and Candace invited me to an evening of sharing at the Sattva Institute.
As Co-founders of the Institute, Candace and Jana hosted the evening of sharing. I also met
some of the Sunan Therapists who had been trained at the Institute. The
therapists I talked with seemed to be genuinely interested in me without
judging me or my beliefs. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt
very much at home at the Institute. As Jana, Candace, and the other
therapists shared their experiences with Sunan Therapy I found myself
thinking that it just might be the key I was looking for to unlock the
potentials that I knew existed inside me but could not access. They told
me that Sunan is a fast and powerful therapy for self-discovery
and self-growth that is entirely determined by the client's readiness to
grow. I liked the idea of only working with issues I was prepared to deal with.
I made an appointment with one of the therapists and soon experienced the
power of the Sunan Method for myself.
Before I could fully embrace Sunan Therapy, I found myself confronting
many challenges to my beliefs and my concepts of reality. The Sunan
therapists that I had talked with spoke of spirit guides and past lives in
such a casual and matter-of-fact manner. I was familiar with these ideas,
but had not previously taken the time to seriously consider them. Why did
I feel so threatened by them now? The therapist that I had chosen explained to me that it was the information received during
Sunan Therapy that was important. He told me that the Sunan experience would
be perceived differently by each person and that no two sessions of Sunan
would be alike. He said that if I could be open to receiving the information,
it would come to me in a manner that I could accept and would make me
comfortable. I went into my first experience with Sunan Therapy
having many questions about the process itself, but knowing that I wanted
answers to these and to many questions about my life.
I was very pleasantly surprised by my first Sunan experience. After an
initial consultation, it was decided that I would undergo the three initial
sessions of Sunan Therapy. My therapist made me
feel quite comfortable and I was able to move easily into the light altered
state of consciousness which makes the Sunan Method so effective. With a
little guidance and coaching from the therapist, I was soon receiving information
for myself. He expanded the information I was receiving and helped me to
understand it from several different perspectives. Before long, I was so
carried away by all the information I was getting that he had to 'reel
me in' and help me focus on only a small part of it. Then the real work
began. He took me into my heart energy, which appeared to me as a large
and very beautiful garden. The energy here was light and felt very loving,
but there was also a very disturbing quality to some of it. Here I was
presented with judgments and expectations which were influencing my life.
After examining these, I decided to release them and to make new decisions
about my life. I was able to forgive both myself and others for feelings,
thoughts, and actions which had been misunderstood. I was able to release
the faulty thought patterns which caused the misunderstandings. I reclaimed
the power that I had given away to others and released the power which
others had given away to me. At the end of the third and last session, I felt less fear, more
confidence, and more power.
I Become a Sunan Therapist
Shortly after my first Sunan, I began to attend classes at the Sattva
Institute. I began to learn techniques for working with energy and
receiving information from the energy which permeates and surrounds the
human body. I was introduced to my own spirit guides and began communicating
with them. In the Soul Search
class I learned about how to receive information from another person's guides
when doing Intuitive Counseling.
The idea of past lives and reincarnation was also becoming more comfortable
to me. I began to realize that the past lives I had experienced through
Sunan Therapy were valid for the information and the healing resolution that
they had given to me regardless of whether they were memories based on actual
events. I also began to learn and use many new techniques which helped to accelerate
my own self growth. Becoming a Sunan Therapist seemed like a
natural next step. In July 1989 I entered the Sunan Therapist Internship program
at the Sattva Institute. In March 1990 I received certification as a Sunan
Some of my Other Interests
Between 1991 and 1993, I made several trips to the island of Kauai in Hawaii
to receive training from Serge King and
Susan Floyd at Aloha International.
This training consisted of a number of topics, including Hawaiian shaman techniques,
healing techniques, Hawaiian (lomi-lomi) massage, Huna (the mystery tradition of the
ancient Hawaiians), and Hawaiian myths and folklore. Interestingly, the techniques
taught in the ancient tradition assume the use of psychic senses is commonplace.
While the techniques rely on connecting psychically with the client or with one's
surroundings, the knowledge of how to use the senses is not taught separately.
I learned a deep respect for nature and the environment while I was there, and I
learned many useful techniques for tapping into the connection with nature and with
each other that is innate in all of us. I have incorporated many of these techniques
into my daily routine and when working with clients.
The Hawaiian philosophy of Huna has had a very great influence on my life. This
philosophy, as articulated by Serge King, combines some of the principles that I have
long held to be true with some that I had not really considered. I have tried to
incorporate these principles into everything that I do. Dr. King says the Huna
philosophy can be expressed as seven principles. I include them here because I am
in agreement with the ideas they represent. They are also compatible with the goals and
ideals of Sunan Therapy. These are the seven principles as listed in his book, Urban
