The discovery of the quantum nature of our universe is so major an event that its profound implications cannot be overstated. Quantum theory demands a radical re-visioning of the role of Consciousness as the underlying organizing principle of the universe. Working with these concepts, both spiritual and scientific, we have enabled students to be, to do and to create in ways that are suggestive of higher levels of human accomplishment. Similarly from the quantum perspective of the simultaneity of past, present and future we are able to change the story of minor past events until it become a realistic part of one’s memory.
An Introduction to the facts and fallacies of how the Quantum World View could facilitate the Evolution of Psychotherapy by integrating the best insights of the arts, humanities and sciences to support people, cultures and nations to become the best they can be.
MHE's 1965 paper "A Special Inquiry with Aldous Huxley into the Nature and Character of Various States of Consciousness" will be used so everyone can experience their personal version of Deep Reflection, the Double Dissociation Double Bind and the Quantum Qualia of their private consciousness and cognition for facilitating gene expression and brain plasticity to optimize their own growing edges.
This workshop will explore the findings from a 10,000-person survey of a mind-training practice, the Wheel of Awareness, and how they can inform an understanding of the mind, mental health, and the transformative power of harnessing consciousness in psychotherapy. Workshop participants are encouraged to practice the Wheel of Awareness before the event so that their own direct experience can be compared and contrasted to the findings of the survey and then applied to their own practice of psychotherapy.
Evidence that the hourly and daily variations in our consciousness are related to the wavelike flow of messenger molecules operating on all levels from mind to gene will be reviewed. Stress, psychosomatic problems, and their resolution are a function of how we manage this wave nature of our consciousness. How do we create a new psychotherapy for the future that utilizes these natural windows of the mindbody?
Psyche has been located wholly intrapersonally (within the individual} or interpersonally (between persons, families, groups}, but never is it conceived also extra-personally as a component of the world, as a world soul or anima mundi in the classical sense.
The process of human growth and development occurs through a series of identity cycles. The transition from one identity level to the next is precipitated by extraordinary experiences, positive or negative in nature, that destabilize the ordinary state of consciousness. The result is a naturalistic trance or special learning state. If properly utilized, these trances lead to new, more evolved states of human being; but if not welcomed and received, violence and other forms of destructive pathology result. This address will examine this process in detail, and discuss implications for development at individual, group, and cultural levels.
This workshop explores the use of hypnosis to create mystical or transcendental states of consciousness. As Maslow noted many years ago, even a brief or faint taste of such experiences seems to change people in dramatically positive ways. One momentary immersion can change a person's psychological and emotional condition forever, perhaps even altering basic hormonal, neurological and biochemical states.
In this workshop the presenters will address the use of clinical intuition across the different sensory modalities when interacting with a client as a complex energy system. Participants will learn how to access their intuition and how to change the consciousness and energetics of the client through the use of trance. Participants also will learn how the "healer" can walk between the worlds of evidence-based medicine and the energetic realms by employing the use of trance states.
Creative Psychosocial Genomics is proposed as the new foundation that underpins the neuroscience of therapeutic hypnosis and many psychotherapies. Currently it is the only evidence-based molecular-genomic approach to mind-body healing and problem solving that that facilitates (1) stem cell activation and a reduction of (2) chronic inflammation & (3) cellular oxidation.
