The Worst of Times- The Best Outcomes Of Those Times. In 2001, he suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of being run over by a truck while cycling immediately and forever changed both his awareness and his life’s direction.The 6 month total loss of speech and short term memory were torture. And his heightened reactive-rage response led him into self-isolation for almost 24 months. The subsequent 4 1/2 years of daily neuro-cognitive rehabilitation in reading and re-reading almost 700 influential books of his library were solely directed at recapturing his lost Mensa mind capability. His worry and anxiety about regaining his mind were overwhelming, since that was what he believed defined him. While watching a natural disaster unfold on TV, an “aha” revelation occurred. It was that his worry and anxiety that was the issue, not a perceived diminished intellectual capacity. His worry and anxiety went to zero! He immediately realized that stress( worry or anxiety) was THE determinant factor that prevented anyone from getting what they wanted in life. Knowing, from his own experience and his 16,000 past patients, that neither drugs nor endless talk-therapy eliminated anxiety and worry , he began a journey to find a solution for someone to erase their worry or anxiety by themselves.At the same time, with this transformation he also decided and channeled his life to a different direction of service. This led Dr. Kenley to spend the rest of his life exclusively doing medical volunteering in third world countries, beginning in 2006 and does so to this very day.
Stumbling Into a New Path – A chance meeting in 2009 at a National Conference reminded him of how he had previously been using Applied Kinesiology (and its interplay with acupuncture) to treat the emotional aspects of a patient’s physical problems. Now this had evolved into and developed a entire new field called Energy Psychology, to treat emotional issues by themselves…but, non cognitively( by talking and analysis) .
Energized and intrigued, he rapaciously acquired training in areas within Energy Psychology, like Emotional Freedom Therapy, Thought Field Therapy, Neuro-Emotive Technique and advanced Neuro-Linguistic Programming. And, at the same time, he used these techniques, in conjunction with AK and acupuncture, in treating clients in India,Hong Kong, China, Tanzania , Kenya, Rwanda and the Philippines. This was the opportunity then to workout and refine a method where clients could resolve there emotional issues by themselves. A DIY approach. This approach that he developed was called REIN ( Resolving Emotional Issues Now)
REIN was derived as a blend of the best aspects of all the above approaches. He has treated thousands of clients from as young as 7 years old in orphanages , to 87 years old , and even in both girls and boys in reform schools. He refined his process and taught REIN to hundreds in workshops in China, India, Russia, Ukraine and Europe. In their learning his REIN process, they themselves were able to dissolve their own anxieties.
Power To The People – There needed to be a way to reach more stressed, worried and anxious people than through workshops. He decided to do that through books and now video platforms. He first had written FREEDOM from ANXIETY that provides essential and extensive background regarding emotions, anxiety and therapy in general, but also detailed the theory and structure of the the REIN process. Recently he completed ERASING WORRY RAPIDLY (How to Easily Discharge You Anxiety). This book really gives the reader the direct no-nonsense step-by-step REIN process. He also reveals his new Shortcut REIN ( a 60 second way), that can immediately diminish, or “soften” worry for impending situational anxiety. Erasing Worry Rapidly also includes 16 stories of mini-miracles of average people that rapidly eliminated their worry to gain awesome results. He is currently bringing workshops and training to the United States for individuals, groups, and organizations, colleges, and businesses.
His U.S. charitable nonprofit corporation, Global Medical Aid and Education, is the recipient of all book royalties and all revenue from workshops and speaking engagements.
