Institute Director / Clinic Founder
Chelsea Alexis Gabriel is a remarkable healing facilitator and master teacher, with a life-long insatiable curiosity that led to her education in varied fields including medicine, psychology, linguistics, spirituality and more. She is fiercely a-theoretical however and resists being defined by, or limited to any one practice or school of thought.
She is renowned as one of the world's foremost experts in Unconscious Communication, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), medical applications of clinical hypnosis, Ericksonian Hypnosis, therapeutic metaphor, and brief, solution-focused therapies and natural treatments.
Ms. Gabriel is the founder and CEO of The Global Truth Initiative™, a new and forming alliance of individuals and businesses committed to infusing all human endeavors and interactions with honesty, integrity and truth. These varied members have as a core minimum the realization of the fundamental need for truth and transparency if life is to continue and balance to be achieved.
She is the Director of the Universal Maya Institute and Health Clinic (in Guatemala) that offers cutting edge treatments for free or low cost to the poor. (*please note: the Clinic is currently closed due to the pandemic)
Prior to Guatemala, she had a private clinical practice and also founded and ran The Gabriel Institute, a training and management consulting company on the east coast, before moving the Institute to the Pacific Northwest where it operated as a State licensed vocational school for many years until she retired to research and write about her astounding discovery.
Ms. Gabriel's roots in clinical/medical hypnosis and NLP are very deep. She has been practicing and teaching Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) for more than 36 years and Clinical Ericksonian Hypnotherapy for 40 years. At a young age as part of her schooling, she did a year apprenticeship with a retired physician who used medical hypnosis in private practice and in hospital settings for medical treatment as well as the sole anesthesia for skin grafts, open-heart surgery, amputations, other surgeries, and childbirth. It was then she was exposed to the power of the mind, and moving away from physical medicine, began a serious pursuit and investigation of non-physical methods of healing.
In 1984 at the request of Dr. John Grinder (co-founder of NLP), she became a Trainer of NLP after completing a year-long personal apprenticeship with him. She designed the first ever 10-day NLP & Ericksonian Hypnosis seminar and co-designed the very first Neuro-Linguistic Programming 'Train the Trainer/Platform Skills' seminar for Grinder, DeLozier and Associates, in the 1980s.
Her skill is such that after witnessing her work, Dr. Grinder dubbed her "The Female Milton Erickson". Like Milton Erickson, MD, she developed an international clientele and had a long waiting list during her career.
Ms. Gabriel is currently making a documentary to release The Discovery™ to the world, and in addition to the forthcoming book about her discovery (Truth at the Speed of Light) she is completing her next book ''Zombie Busting: A Manifesto for Extreme Consciousness'.
"Zombie..." is a book about waking up, and staying awake while living in a Western culture under the most covert barrage of media & corporate manipulation ever known. It teaches how to take back our critical thinking faculties & become the fully present architects of our own lives.
As a trainer and business management consultant, she worked with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, entrepreneurs, law firms, community colleges, and sectors of local and federal government.
She was hired by the prestigious Institute of Government to be a key trainer in their yearly residential training of East Coast City Mayors and Managers, and has been keynote speaker for many organizations.
She was 'Director of Corporate Development' for Inologic, Inc. (now ISM Therapeutics) a Seattle biotech company developing their cures for Cystic Fibrosis and arthritis, and has provided management, negotiation, and skills training to multiple software companies in the Pacific Northwest.
As pragmatic as most of the above sounds, for most of her life, Ms. Gabriel has studied science, medicine and the healing arts including many esoteric teachings. She began at age 15 by reading The Tibetan Book of The Dead.
Never satisfied to "land & stick" on one practice she wanted to experience and learn as much as possible in her lifetime, with the outcome to speed our evolutionary process as a species. She went on to study modalities such as Attitudinal Healing, Ho'Oponopono, A Course in Miracles, EFT, Reiki, Pranic Healing, SOMA Neuro-Muscular Therapy, other bodywork modalities, and many types of energy medicine.
For years she studied at the Association of Research and Enlightenment (ARE) and her early mentors and trainers are some of the most widely respected doctors and teachers in the healing arts fields.
She has specialized training in working with adults and children diagnosed with cancer, and was appointed to the board of The American Cancer Society, but quit to pursue studies into alternative and indigenous methods of healing cancer and other catastrophic disease.
She started a low-cost/free health clinic (currently closed due to the pandemic) for the local Maya population, and for the poor at Lake Atitlan Guatemala. It features cutting-edge natural health treatments as well as traditional Mayan treatments and will eventually be a center where health practitioners of all modalities, including Osteopaths, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists, Nurses, MD's, Herbalists, and others may volunteer their time and expertise to help the local population and where desired, exchange knowledge both ways with the local doctors and shaman.
Ms. Gabriel is known for her unabashed love of life and a-theoretical philosophy summed up in her statement: "I believe that everything is possible, yet there is almost nothing that I believe 100%... except for the power of love, and the rightness of being kind."
She has eschewed "guru" status throughout her career, and when told by a well-known psychic/author that she was a "Level 10 Soul on her last lifetime", she exclaimed with a smile "Oh. That explains why I feel like such an egg! I've been around long enough to know that I don't really know anything!"
Her training style is casual, full of humor, therapeutic metaphors, hope, abundance and life, and she believes that magic and miracles are really just the natural order of things.... when in integrity.
People who have studied with Ms. Gabriel often remark that she is one of the most grounded, balanced, and spiritually enlightened humans they know. When she hears that, you can hear her full-body laughter a mile away.
