Testimonial from David

“As much as you take care of your body physically with working out and training it’s just as important to have good mental health and this is a key to good mental health. I’d say if you have the opportunity to buy The 4 Blocks program to jump on it. Unless you’re totally happy being miserable, and if you’re just totally fine struggling with life, then you don’t need it. But if you want to find a peaceful way of living, a happy way of living. It’s mandatory. Get it. Soak it all up. And it’ll be the best thing that ever happened to you.”

Testimonial from John

“John has been in and out of therapy most of his life He has taken. Medication for years. All different names When I met him I saw a man that just needs mental, awareness. To, learn how his emotions were created. And how to, let them go. He was blaming everyone and everything for the way he was feeling he was in a real downward spiral. I gave him access to, the course and I hoped he would take the time to try it After 2 weeks I called him and he was so excited he took the course and was making all, kinds of improvements. If you or a loved one are suffering you at the right place”
- Neil Schauer. (Co-founder and Producer)

Testimonial from Priscilla

“I’m more at peace with myself. I don’t stress like I used to. When you can recognize where your emotions are coming from, it can help you feel at peace. Dr. Parr really, really helps.”

Testimonial from Bob

“I was thinking too much, and [afterward] it was like a big rock was lifted off my head. I could be more me, be free.”

Testimonial from Rodriguo

“I think I was overly aggressive, overly angry. Anxiety was a loyal companion in my life for many years. There are two Rodriguos—before Dr. Parr and after Dr. Parr. If you want to be happy, go buy it!”

Testimonial from Gerda

“I give all this credit to The 4 Blocks, and to my son and granddaughter for taking the time to do it and make the changes in their life. I know they’ll never regret it, because I don’t.”

Testimonial from Guy Sr.

“I certainly would recommend it because this is basic education, they ought to teach it in first, second, and third grade. So that the kids don’t have to unlearn later what they’ve learned from observing their peers.”
