Silence Your Mind Like Never Before

Without Meditation, Gratitude Lists, Journaling or “Mercury’s In The Microwave” Astrology

Rageheart has given me a few EASY tools to use throughout the day to get from a DEFCON 5 to a 4… or a 3… without having to meditate for an hour.

Rageheart works 10x better than meditation for me. It was harder than I expected it to be, but once I got used to it… it silenced my mind like never before.

* Cue scary music *


Actually, wait –

Oh… the beast isn’t awake.

Not yet anyway.

It’s snoring away while you…

  • meditate
  • make endless lists of what you’re grateful for
  • scribble in your $49 Moleskin journal
  • practice Stoicism
  • drink 17 cups of coffee (ALL AT THE SAME TIME SAME TIME SAME SAME TIME TIME)
  • smash yourself in savage gym workouts
  • run
  • listen to rock music and scream while driving
  • watch endless YouTube videos and
  • work that super strict routine that makes you desperate to cartwheel out of a 58th floor window screaming the lyrics to Mad World

In other words…

Your beast sleeps while you apply bandaids to your mind.

Yeah –


Glorified bandaids.

Helpful, sure… at least in the short term (just like aspirin, alcohol or a heroin addiction that would make Kurt Cobain proud).

But in the long-term?


That’s where Rageheart stomps in.

You’ll ditch the usual self-help bandaids for something that attacks the root problem (nervous system dysregulation) instead of symptoms like most everything else.

That’s how you unleash the beast inside you (along with all the vitality, energy and full-blooded healthy aggression that comes with it – and the next time someone tells you to “fuck off”, you’ll simply look them calmly in the eye.. and smile 😎).

Supercharge Your Nervous System Instead Of Worrying About Your Thoughts

Tiger on Tree

Meditation teaches you to silence your thoughts.

Gratitude lists, positive thinking and CBT are about changing negative thoughts to positive thoughts.

Journaling is about figuring out what your thoughts are.

And the “mental heath” industry assumes that mental health issues are, by definition, mental or “thought-based”.

But what if our thoughts are merely a symptom of the problem – not the problem itself?

That means that fiddling with our thoughts – whether to eradicate them, transform them or decipher them – will have about as much success as trying to mend a massive internal bleeding wound with a bandaid when what you need is 283 stitches on your liver or even laparoscopic surgery.

Instead, you need to attack the ROOT problem – nervous system dysregulation – if you’re desperate to unleash the beast inside you.

Reactivate Your Mojo

Leopard in tree

If your nervous system is all outta whack, it’s like having a blocked or frozen pipe in your kitchen.

The energy (water) wants to flow… but it can’t.

The result?

The beast inside you falls asleep and your mojo evaporates.

In other words…

😩 Procrastination

😮‍💨 Negative thoughts

😕 Self-doubt

😞 Imposter syndrome

😨 Low confidence

🫠 Poor boundaries

😶 No purpose

😐 Unfulfilled

😭 Unhappy

🥵 Burn out

😬 Can’t fall asleep

🥱 Can’t stay asleep

😴 Sleeping too much

🫣 Resistance

🤢 Toxic relationships

🤮 Digestive problems

😪 No energy

😵 Blocked toilet

But scrub the pipes and “unconstipate” your nervous system and the beast inside you gradually comes back to life again.

And that means…


Not For The Faint Of Heart

Leopard in the dark

Diving into your nervous system isn’t all sunshine, rainbows and bright, shiny unicorns.

In fact, it could be the toughest journey you’ve ever embarked on.


Because it’s literally (and scientifically) designed to stir up everything in you that’s unresolved.

Fear, doubt, anger, guilt, shame and so much more. All the stuff most people spend their entire lives avoiding. The demons within. 

That’s the stuff that’s making us anxious and depressed.


Keep that in mind if you continue past this point.

As the old saying goes:

Here be dragons.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

I just finished the Rage on Annihilation and my life has been forever changed in the best way possible.

Not the easiest, not the least painful, but the best for my life.

It is so obvious now that all the “stuff” I’ve been feeling for decades and decades is anger. Just like you I was proud of my lack of anger.

I’ve convinced myself that my anger is hurt, or sadness, or something else acceptable.

As a kid I was sent to my room and not allowed out until I could turn my anger into happiness. Even if I displayed anything close to anger I was sent to my room. Obviously I spent a lot of time in my room until I was old enough to learn how to shove that energy down and put on a smile.

After working with the Rage today and energy is coming up I’m realizing it’s just anger. And when I’m able to acknowledge it truthfully as anger … this tremendous peace comes over me. So deeply profound I have no words for it.

This new ability to reprocess energy just might be the best thing to truly let me live a peaceful life. A life I had given up hope on having.

Such a profound realization and wouldn’t have happened without you and Rageheart.

As always I stand in awe of the work.

What more can there be said other than it works!?! It’s absolutely brilliant that many of the techniques and practices are designed to work with your eyes wide open when you are in the trenches dealing with the stress and anxieties of modern life.

Who knew that by focusing on your body and sensation it would help me get out of my head and process accumulated tension in my body? It’s so simple and obvious, yet genius! Now I understand what people mean when they say BE YOURSELF!

I just became a baby beast … working the program.

I woke up this morning with zero plans.

Sat down at the computer to create a new blog article.

Next thing I know I’m in a great conversation with ChatGPT. One thing leads to another and darn if I didn’t just create a new novel business that has never been created on the face of the Earth. What? Yes.

In half a day I created the entire business structure, business plan, and business name. Also in that same half a day I created the framework an entirely new online course to complement the business.

My life for the past two years has been in nervous system over function and burnout. Suicidal? Yes, I’ve had those thoughts.

Only by doing your Rageheart Academy has my nervous system calmed down enough to allow functioning at a level not known for decades.

I cannot thank you enough for you, for what you have been through in life, and your intellect to create a program for me to get my life back on track.

I stand in awe of what can happen if we just listen to our bodies.

I have completed my rage 5 or the beginner stage and I have to say, it’s a great programme helping me learn how to be in my body. I just did the pendulum and I experienced interesting sensations. Thank you for your work.

Testimonial from Helena



This morning I randomly woke up with a knot of stress in my chest that quickly snared my mind and dragged me into low key spiraling.

After a little bit of time I collected myself and dipped into my regulating Rageheart “toolkit”. I started orienting, using multitasking awareness, and then pendulated between those resources and the sensation of the knot in my chest.

After a little bit of time I started yawning uncontrollably as tears rolled down my face. Now? Sensation is gone and I’m peacefully moving on with my day.

Testimonial from Jon



I’ve been doing the somatic work for quite some time, but John’s particular way of presenting the information and approaching the process resonates well with me. He just really gets it.

He provides personal examples which help to connect the work to real life scenarios, but he doesn’t impose his experience on the overall process, allowing me to use the tools provided to work through the particulars of my situation.

He is also quite attuned to minor subtleties in the process, and he doesn’t promote a one-size-fits-all approach – he emphasizes the importance of tuning in to your own felt sense and using that to determine what is most needed in the moment.

This works 10x better than meditation for me.

If you’re like me and into the self-help and mindfulness worlds, you’ve probably tried a lot of things to find productivity, inner peace, clarity, or escape from your trauma.

I’ve tried breathwork, transcendental meditation (yes, I learned it from a Master here in Tokyo), and so much more, but nothing really did much. Like I’d feel at ease for a few minutes, and then the same stress or lack of focus would come back if I wasn’t spending half my day doing some kind of mindfulness exercise.

That was until I heard the idea of ‘survival stress’, why it matters more than anything else you might have been told, and how to get rid of it. This is a whole ‘nother take on how to deal with your feelings without suppressing them or trying to push them away like so many meditations do.

Rageheart has really changed my outlook on self-help, mindfulness, and life in general. I highly recommend anyone to sign up and see if anything that John Wood has to say resonates with the way you’ve been feeling or feel has been lacking from what you’ve been trying.

I was one of the first people to join in last year, and can’t recommend it enough.

Rageheart Rocks! I love listening to the Rageheart podcast. John Wood is brilliant in the way he presents and teaches about nervous system healing. John adds a level of fun creativity unsurpassed by any other podcast.

Also, I was ‘dead’ and now I am ‘alive’ since joining Rageheart Academy and signing up for the Daily Growl.

Feeling safe in my body now has changed my life in so many ways because of Rageheart!

I highly recommend all of John Woods creativity.

Burn Your Self-Help Books… Get Rageheart Instead

The tools and exercises inside Rageheart changed my life in huge ways. I used to have PTSD and panic attacks, and struggled to find my purpose in life. I tried all the typical tools: CBT, journaling, SSRIs, yoga, meditation, vitamins, exercise, diet changes – but these things only scratched the surface.

By using the tools in Rageheart, I was able to release the fight-or-flight energy from my nervous system and finally feel safe, relaxed, and go after what I wanted in life.

Rageheart is honestly a game-changer.

In my opinion it beats all the other tools out there, because it helps you get to the root of what you’re feeling so you can release it. 10/10 most effective program I’ve found in the mental health space by far!

Testimonial from Emily

I feel much more present and aware. By aware, I mean more intimately connected to my body. I am more sensitive to feelings and physically embodied emotions and I am less overwhelmed because of it. Life is still busy and stressful. Still very tension inducing… but I find myself recognizing when I am tense more often, giving me more agency to tend to my bodies needs.

I’m in awe at how effective this work is!

I have done some form of orienting but never like I did in the rumble today. I came in with hip pain and by the end of the hr it was gone. I had been dealing with it for 2 weeks. No explanation. I think I realize now this is related to trauma/ stress/ gripping.

In the Rumble, John made it easy and fun to do these exercises. Because of past trauma, I have often felt afraid to do orienting and if I do it is only for a few minutes. Having others do it with me and having a facilitator there to guide, made me feel much safer.

I now realize how much my body is speaking and craves to feel safe again.

Thank you John for your work and creating a space to heal and feel again.

Testimonial from Christine, a nurse



I’m still taking things slow lesson-wise, but for me, this pace is working well as it’s giving me ample time to integrate. ​

I wanted to share an interesting thing that I found myself doing this last week: ​

I’ve been practicing holding space for my emotions as they arise. Then as the emotions start to dissipate on their own (after giving them attention or expression) I close out with a following my impulse “session” (Rage 9).

I found myself pulled to the ground. Exploring that impulse further, lead me to close up inspection of the ground… dirt, rocks, bugs, grass, etc… ​

And it was a very grounding (pun intended), nostalgic and magical experience. It’s such a youthful, curious thing to do. I remember doing it all the time as a kid… but at some point, I just stopped doing it. ​

After the first time this week, I’ve been repeatedly drawn to this careful up-close inspection of little things that I normally don’t pay much attention to, and it’s been incredibly enjoyable 🙂 ​

Just wanted to share this little, newly (re)discovered joy. ​

Thanks for Rageheart. ​
