Lynne Forrest Lynne Forrest 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.

    I enjoyed this so much. I am a fan Of Lynne’s. I learned about Drama Triangle in a Conquering Codependency class several years ago. I was looking online for more info about the concept and discovered an article Lynne wrote. I have discussed some of these principals and roles with my students, who seemed to have a constant drama ongoing. I am glad she shared this episode on Facebook. I see more ‘tools’ coming my way to continue to grow out of codependent, self-sabotaging behaviors. Thanks. Blessings, Vicky Mayo
