About Mobile Access: Although most coding is basic, most pages are very long, often multi-columnar -requiring horizontal panning- and with much graphic content. Thus the site is *currently* only minimally ready for the less-than-very-capable mobile devices. The author-artist's primary skills & focus are not in webmastery, are only as technologically up-to-date as time, budget, & learning curve allows. Yet, all is progressing steadily, albeit slowly. Thank you for your patience! I hope the search engines (ie: at right) help for now. -cp

"Integration"
"Integration" in the wholistic or therapeutic sense, implies that the information or skills (whether of the past, remembered, or forgotten) are re-organized and then learned from, in such a healthfully complete or "Integral" way (*Love-Wisdom* in application), that it is understood and used for the highest good. This transforms the most destructive material- that which has been repressed or denied, ie: from trauma - to manageable feelings and information. Sources of which (trauma) can be surprising, and effects of which can be wide-ranging. Other benefits (for which therapies can be specifically geared) include overall preventive maintenance, injury prevention, emotional intelligence-(EQ)-geared neuroplasticity benefits, not to mention more clarity and peace of mind. Most of this site's writings have been focused around the later set, as the process(es) in my own work may involve the "Synergy" of many systems. Whereas the essay, "Body-Mind Integration in Personal Growth Process," (published in "Massage Magazine" in 1992 - on the "leading edge" at the time) explains in lay-technical terms the traumatic origins of body-memory storage, as well as the process of healing. That writing leads off the "Body-Mind Integration Essays" page, which includes a number of related essays, charts, and links to more of same.

What's Special and Different about this Site
You might say this site specializes in "Filling in the blanks", covering *What you Don't Find Elsewhere*, the SUBTLE aspects with HUGE implications; ie: like those related to how and why *Fascia* (the connective tissue around muscle components) functions essentially as a BRIDGE in many vital ways, on many levels of our being. Also including What's RARELY if ever covered in the more popular media, or the professional media as related to body-mind-spirit integration or psychology; ie: the Gestalt-Buddhist-Somatic interface. While also covering or referencing -as necessary- the basics, more general topics and points. And sometimes charting that. [Elaboration on how & why]

ChBullet  Body-Mind-Chalice Integration  A R T  Index Page
(Towards an "ART & SCIENCE of Body, Mind, & Spirit Integration")
      Presenting early to more recent artwork (by yours truly, with the *Chalice* as eclectic symbol for the energetic infrastructure of our Being, bridging ALL that one is - a "vehicle" for the balancing & integrating of Humanity, individually & communally: thence ChaliceBridge.Com and its theme, "Chalice Bridging Arts & Sciences." There are both hand-made & artistically rendered computer-generated works, and a little bio on how it began & developed. My artwork is, overall, an eclectic/symbolic blend of multiple layers of brights and subtles, chalice-theme components based and arranged in sacred geometry, rounded with a balance of textures and grounding touch.
      This page elaborates on many aspects of sacred geometry and the chalice, including the mystical symbolism of the chalice: this precedes anything any religion has to do with it, and represents (here, if not universally) the human embodiment of Spirit. Including broader themes, beginning with the origins of Man and ancient archetypes, and section by section, cover symbology, geometry and communication, the related but deeper (pre-Christian) archetypic symbology & meanings of the "Holy Grail" -- per the 3D geometric vision/ visual when "seen" in 1985 which initiated research into the correlations to the legendary meanings of the Holy Grail (and sources of), and to how and why that was later edited by "the Church". .
      The page explores that historically as well as symbolically. For instance, in the "Pragmatic Balancing" section, we look at the legend as symbolizing the psycho-social evolution of Man, beginning with a recounting of the early history of "The Church," the orthodoxy vs the Gnostics, relating the essence of that to the world's key religions - by nature of that which unites all religions - relating that to various body-mind-spirit correlations, and many would-be paradoxes & mysteries in other page sections. Including how & why the "sacred geometry" relates the pi-ratio to the proportion & function that is relevant to the DNA of all Life, how that relates to ones cells, to whole health. And to emotional intelligence ("EQ") that might, on the intra- and inter- personal levels, "bridge" humanity and transcend extremes, via interconnectedness and understanding.

ChBullet  The Fascia-Memory Project Home Page
  This is about Research and Development into the relationships among connective tissue (fascia), objective/subjective experience, the neuro-physical interface between emotion, and the brain, and "body-Memory". Into devices & methodologies that measure & interprete these aspects for development of the diagnostics & preventative maintenance systems of the future. How & Why? IF, and to the degree that, one is aware of retained or stored tension in one's body (AND related nature, potentials, & implications), THEN to that degree one may be equipped to develop an effective preventative health program for one's body, taking optimal advantage of our capacities for neuroplasticity. But this is about more than just the body: modern psychology generally concedes that memory suppression/ storage is related to mental-emotional attributes, as well as basic personality traits. Pages includes a table of contents for the 9 pages, research references, links to accompanying documents at this site, and charts including Fascia-Memory Project Overview Chart. The original theory was developed in '94-95 and published June'96
         Goals include developing a) optimal means for applying that R&D in health care practice, b) developing connective tissue scanning devices and diagnostics hardware for discerning and illustrating all that. c) enhanced systems for individual development of body-awareness for preventative health maintenance, and d) systems for rehabilitation on many levels. A long term project, of course, but intermediate goals and sub-projects (not included here) could have considerable effective change. The range of application extends from the medical industry to personal home use, to public education, to social and correctional rehabilitation.
          What that might look like: One of my main visions is a society where/in children are taught how to feel/see/read their own body-mind communications, such that preventative health maintenance eventually becomes second nature. That would then be part of our upbringing and public schooling. Over time we would learn to channel our initial internal response (to high stress) into channels more creative than that of fight or flight. Because *much of* the adrenal/"survival" response has been shown to be a learned response, not necessarily innate. Hence, we would be encouraged to re-awaken and build upon a natural inclination - conscious self-healing and continuous expansion of awareness. Those goals and much more would be accomplished by the Fascia Memory project.

Body-Mind Awareness
And Preventative Health Maintenance


Body-Mind Awareness - as the bottom line of preventative health maintenance - is one of the most simple, efficacious, and cost effective forms of health insurance there can possibly be. Why? Focused awareness to the body, brings circulation of blood, nerve, and bio-magnetic energies. ...

Hence, where caring attention is directed, especially if focused simultaneously from within and also from a practitioner, cells complain much less, if at all (with pain signals)... Learning body-mind awareness, thus provides the preventative health maintenance that equates to the most cost efficient health insurance! ...

"MUSCLE Q & A": What is an appropriate range of muscle tension? Are your muscles toned or simply "hard" due to improper circulation, What's age got to do with it ..When is muscle tension chronic ...more acute or immediate? ..How to tell? ..How to isolate, focus awareness on, & train the *tension range* ..What is "Controlled Motor Response", "Work/Rest ratio" and what's that got to do with muscle habits & movement patterns, chronic tension, "Body Memory", and neuroplasticity? ..What your yoga teacher may not be telling you? (due to lack of knowledge)...

...Like kids, cells do best (by far) if we attend to their needs for nutrition, sanitation, and feeling loved. This attention to muscles simply but vitally improves circulation through them. The muscles appropriately use the nervous system to get our attention. Dulling their call for help instead of properly attending to them tells them we have other higher priorities - whether or not we actually do. But when we learn to listen to them, they will tell us, in their own physical and/or emotional language, what changes need attending to (finding what responses to them work best for the whole being). That learning is most easily, readily, and effectively facilitated with the kind of focused awareness that massage therapy naturally encourages. ...

"Just a Luxury" (?)
The socially common myth, that "massage is just a luxury," has been a grievous limitation for people whose conditions - ie: re-injury of chronically tensed muscles - would be effectively and relatively quickly remedied with massage or energy-work. For them, this therapy would make all the difference in healing. Doctors know your organs and systems. Psychologists know your mind. Well-trained body-workers & massage therapists know HOW & Why your muscles do what they do - hold & move your body the way it works best, so that it all works together! -Chris Pringer

ABOUT THIS SITE -- And My Work:

[This is "the elaboration". As / when needed, a brief professional bio is included in a "Author/Bio, Web Site, Copyright info, etc", and the professional brochure each on it's own page].

         At this site I have focused on the nature of integration and wholeness -- that is, on the pragmatic (eg: functionally useful & daily appreciated) synthesis of one's 'bodymind' (body, mind, emotions, and their interconnections).
         I also focus much on the practical application of self-healing methodology and appropriate attitudes toward preventative maintenance and well-being. Specific topics at this site involve "Body-Memory" and Mind-Body Correlations, "Body-Parenting," Body-Awareness-Enhancement, pain and related considerations; integrated therapies that combine connective tissue work, release of chronic muscle pain & habit patterns, energy-balancing and attunements, and personal growth processing, including the "emotional body" process.
         Briefly put: this has been developed from a certain intricate blending of Buddhist, Gestalt, Somatic, and New Thought Psychologies (with a body-centered innovation on Transactional Analysis for "Body-Parenting"), developed in light of each individual's assets in regard to the human condition, as well as each individual's particular challenges or insensitivities to same. Explaining the how's and why's of that can become "heady", I know, and yet I try to keep such writings understandable - at least by those with a lay person's interest in psychology, or at least it's practical application to achieving and maintaining physical well-being.

         I have been dedicated to the development and passing on of (very) hands-on grounded applications of such concepts. In response to those so "spiritually inclined" who believe that the physical and/or emotional (or "astral") bodies do not deserve to take up time, considering such endeavors as hedonististic or simply a waste of time: I respectfully disagree. What makes us "human" and special also provides the greatest spiritual challenges as well as spiritual opportunities, not to mention the essential (necessary) cauldron for transcendance - the process of attaining higher (certainly "the highest") states of well-being. Related Note: If one spends 20-30 years or more forming less than healthy habits, it helps greatly to understand that "the way back" is not going to be fully revealed in practical depth, let alone experienced, with one session with a health practitioner.
         More eclectic aspects are developed at various pages (ie: the "Extended Brochure" page), as well as in the "Perspectives" section of this page. And a few eclectic topics are treated further below. The "Body-Mind Integration" essays (including "The Science Behind The Body-Mind Relationships And Related Therapeutic Approaches" chart in the reference section) and "Tensing Yoga" pages develop the more technical aspects (physical & psycho-emotional), barely hedge toward the edge only here and there. More on that a bit further down the page, AND there are descriptions of each page in the next ("Essays Index") section.
         I also believe that what we call setbacks are, certainly can be, our systems re-organizing. Just like moving the furniture in the office while you're also doing the office work: It's slow-going, feels uncoordinated and clumbsy, sometimes confusing, consuming time and energy, all of which feels like it's being wasted at the time. Yet, all that is essential to the healing. And if we persist in trying to see it as such, assisting others appropriately through that process, the healing then effectively quickens. That's actually one way of defining a "cleansing reaction". Integrating all that into an graphic-backed affirmation or "Treasure Map" technique for self-healing application, is "'Getting Super': Sample Personalized Visualization Prayer Chart" at the "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" page.

         I used to say that the self-help writing here is kept basic, but that was because I had apparently either forgotten, or just didn't fully keep up with, the fact that others were just not as inclined to take note of same things as I do. Even as compared to other massage therapists. We are all experts at something, sometimes that applies to what we *intentially* or *consciously* focus on. [That is chuckled at in some circles, by the way.] My 1976 Kuder "Occupational Interest Survey" results (below) should have been a clue [but wasn't realized as such for many years]. Since the late 90's, questions by others have led me to look more often at how I look at things and why, hence the section just below. In any case, the concepts & resulting techniques still require some purposeful application in order to derive benefit. The essays provide links for elaboration and study for those interested in pursuing these things further.

"Elaboration on the Development of Perspectives at ChaliceBridge.Com"

        In Summary: The perspectives here have been greatly influenced by various teachers and teachings intent on increasing understanding among the wonderous diversity on the planet - more specifically (here), to bridge a number of body and mind healing perspectives, approaches, and techniques. Particularly those related to my own professional interests which I consider valuable tools that were not, or have yet to be, popularly integrated. Especially those which, in some cases, appear to contradict each other in one or more areas, and thus leave apparently unsolvable oppositions. Knowing well each of ones tools (or methodologies) lends to knowing where, when, and how to apply them, plus the determination to solve the puzzles related to otherwise perceived conundrums, is the basis for pragmatic application of that old saying, "necessity is the mother of invention." EG: If one takes the best of various good systems, eliminate what would be shortcomings among them for a/each given situation, then we develop solutionary methods to conditions previously regarded difficult to manage. Nothing really new in such developments except increased realization of long-existing potential, right?
        We could start off with good ole' physiology, at which I've always been a ready and quick learner, thanks to Dr. Hurn. Who some how came to teach college-level(!) physiology at Will Rogers High School (Tulsa, Okla, 1970). Wherein I made one of the only two 'A's among 100 students in the classes that year. I enjoy finding research that backs up, at least to some degree, the points I make. Psychological theory, let alone application, can be difficult to do that for, particularly somatic psychology, albeit primarily due to "civilized" society being so quick to ascribe so much "evil" to the body itself, to beliefs limiting the tools of mind and body. But I hope you will find these pages do a fairly good job of reclarifying the amazing potential of the physical and psycho-emotional body-minds working well together, or at least lead you to other authors and resources who will. And if that sounded like "the other" bodies have intelligence or knowledge to offer, you heard/ read correctly.
        A "How so" Bio: What happens when one is led to compare philosophical perspectives, at first just one to another, where they agree, where not, and so on, then from different psychological view points? A natural student (also) of psychology and philosophy may come to intuit a "unifying thread", one that runs through all the worlds major religions and philosophies. One may also hear about such, as long, long ago discovered. For myself, that began in the mid-1970's.
        I began to observe events from here, and journal these as a rough comparative analysis, and note references for possible future use. My intuition has become increasingly attuned to noticing potential sources of useful ways of explaining things, even as people explain how or why they do what they do. All the while, I'm "highlighting" the perspectives that seem to work, and work together, aggregating and integrating the favorite and compatible into what I thought might "work" towards that unifying thread. In doing that, I'm continually learning more about other ways of perceiving our inner selves and relationships to our "larger selves," if you will, including various metaphysical cosmologies, psychological perspectives, mind-brain sciences, and views on consciousness and healing, etc.
        By the way, neuroplasticity, the re-organization of the neural networks for growth and healing, requires motivation. And perhaps it requires a little faith in some of these kinds of things making a difference, even through the cycles of our sometimes painful learning process. After All, it is said that cells renew themselves; that, in effect, that we have "a totally new body every seven years". That is, different types of cells take different amounts of time to do that, but the cycles overlap, such that eventually whole systems "new." Or rather, they can be, if we also recycle the energies associated with them. And there is a trick of magic to that, so to speak. Because the cells pass on the beliefs or attitudes --for good or for illness-- that they have been programmed with prior to and/or during those cycles. UNLESS and to the degree, as needed, our minds become aware of and take charge of that programming(!) More on that (and faith, persistance in positive messages to our cells) in the "Delayed Healing" section at the "Why Pain" page.

        Speaking of the philosophical, we are going off on another thread here, so do feel free to skip the next two paragraphs if you like. But... we could call all that food for "Conflict Resolution from a psychological view of philosophy, or via a metaphysical epistemology.
        I call it "Chalice Bridging", given the symbolism and meaning I attach to that: the dynamics by which Spirit flows into the "Body-Mind", facilitating our maturing and evolving, our balancing and integrating each ourselves, and thus Humanity, with our highest potentials while still "on the plane of matter".
        Might such a "unifying thread perspective", as noted above, make it much easier for others to include an understanding, certainly a tolerance, of each others perspectives? How about possibly even an appreciation, certainly when considering those beliefs - about tolerance, for instance, as may best apply to each themselves. Would checking out the "Pragmatic Balance" section of the Chalice Integration Art page provide anything new, relative to what in our history and our apparent make-up shows us? That is, in reference to factors effecting how much or little tolerance, patience, listening skills, neuroplasticity, [etc] that we may have for each other, personally but also societally or politically(?) And about how we might change that for the better? How could so much possibly be there? Uhmmmm, something about what's new about how we have evolved, and how we may evolve (or not) to realise our effectively greater potential for listening and understanding? smile [2/28/11, 7/15/12]

        I do the writing and the artwork on the "Chalice-Integration" or "Chalice-Bridging" perspective because I believe that, to the degree it is understood and employed, it may help clear the clutter out of our inner lives, our relationships, and and our religions, clutter that is causing disfunctionality (as the primary cause of unhealthy conflict, of war in it's worst case), and add a healthy amount of much needed psychological BALANCE, facilitate much healing, restore much love, joy, and cooperation, much of that due a healthy appreciation of the diversity (of species, race, religions, genders and orientations, perspectives and creativity, etc), much (if not all) of which is critically necessary for sustaining life on this planet.
        Like yoga, it may provide an adjunct for health, albeit more on the attitudinal than physical level, since it (the "Chalice-Bridging" perspective) is based on a psychology of integration towards acceptance and equinimity, not comparitive/separative heirarchy. Hence, it would not be conducive in forming or even encouraging a religion or cult (in case you wondered), although it does encourage acknowledgement of "The Golden Thread," which underlies and connects All religions while honoring their diversity. The artwork fulfills an artistic need (certainly for the artist smile ) but it also has it's highly functional purposes, as it a) serves to potentially lead to or remind of the perspective and it's purposes, b) illustrates and assists in informing about sacred geometry, thereby the functionality of the proportions at the atomic and higher levels of biology and which is key and core to all life on this planet.



"In Context"

         I understand that one can only be focused on one thing at a time (no matter how "psychic" or otherwise gifted a person may be - albeit not withstanding the expansiveness of peripheral vision, internal or external). However, your reading what I say in any one writing -in context- with what I write elsewhere, may be important for understanding what it has to offer. For this reason you'll find many links from most any writing at my site to a number of other writings here. If you enjoy multi-tasking, you'll love this site. laughing I can't wait to get those concept flow-charts developed for illustrating the relationships between the various multi-level dynamics written at this site. They might provide the only way for me to "keep it simple" before I'm even close to finished here. An early and limited example of the kind of charting that I'm talking about would be the at the "Goal Chart" page.

         Meanwhile, some context and synergy of "my work" overall can be gained by checking out the footers (last section) of each web page at the site, as well as by visiting the Organization Chart Page [ Wait, not yet! smile ], which page also includes the Oct 2011 added "Chart of Core Body-Mind Integration Concepts in Context", as well as "How and Why this Site Is Different" - A study in Cross-Discipline Knowledge Sharing and Utilization - how that relates to "Chalice-Bridging," Body-Mind Integration, and healing (including healing on the largest scale).
   


Some Elaboration On My Work and my place in it
(less formal than in my brochure)

          I have relied on my hands as well as my ears and eyes to tell me whether an approach is useful to the client. And I'm probably more than a tad intuitive when not overly focusing "in" on something. I am thankful to be physically strong, kinesthetically sensitive and appreciative of the more subtle sensory information. My life experience tells me that most people like sessions to include only your basic quiet massage. Others benefit from my "Let's see why this is - how we can make it work better" attitude when it comes to injury troubleshooting and treatment.
          Many also enjoy the empowerment gained from the preventative maintenance approach - the "Integral Body Awareness Training" that can involve "body-reading" (trouble-shooting or reading the textures of muscles, feeling the varying degrees of tension and patterning in the different muscles and muscle groups, noting the relationships between them if/as they exist), related discussion, and body-awareness instruction/counseling. And others find it incredibly easy to talk about themselves in this environment. What I really enjoy is the variance among all the people and each session, seeing what each individual brings each day. And do my best to learn from each person that has come in.

          My work is usually described as "thorough," "you always seem to know right where to go," "...don't waste any time" etc. I sometimes call my approach "Search & Employ," where I "go in" and find areas that are out-of-touch and bring them back "into the family," teaching a *Body-Parenting* approach to preventative maintenance. It helps greatly that I have always been unusually capable at varying the degree of pressure to apply when employing touch-based techniques, while sensing the optimal amount of pressure for a given area, allowing me to work as deeply as possible without causing the muscles to tense up further. ... More about what makes my work different at my Brochure, in "My Own Niche" Section.
          The deeper how and why, and a lay-person's technical core of my work, is put together at the "Body-Mind Integration" (Essays) Page. Newly Added on that page (May'11-July'12) on this page: "The science behind the body-mind relationships" (in the reference section) as well as addendum essays for clarifying these topics for *common sense* preventative maintenance application, as well as further completing the context and clarifying the dynamics and processes involved. Most benefits from the information at this page requires no focus on energy-work or the spiritual interface(s). The next three paragraphs do go into those aspects a little, while my extended professional brochure provides more about how that may (or may not) enter into a client's focus in work with me.

          You might find helpful the "Chart of Core Body-Mind Integration Concepts in Context" at the Organization Chart page. This compacts the key points into a relatively small visual space, providing a "Summary Of Connecting Points & Implications relative to body-mind preventative maintenance, pain management, other aspects, as well as links to their respective essays or sections."
   




Those "More Eclectic Aspects"

         Without trying to preach or convert, I've also focused occasionally (in some writings) on the "spiritual interface" of the bodymind with one's Higher Power, and the maintenance of this interface as related to living "in the world," (while not being "of the world" as the great master said.) And about maintaining this interface while one simultaneously develops within oneself the highest potentials one is capable of. Thence comes the term, "Multi-Dimensional." Respecting other's beliefs (or non-beliefs), I do not "push religion" or otherwise believe in spiritually "saving people." I do believe in "the Golden Thread ...which seems to form the common core of every major religion" as it is called by Eugene Whitworth. ¹   I believe that anything forced (given more force than actually needed, that is) -or manipulated- into someone's space eventually comes back in one's face.
         I believe that people learn and grow best in their own time and path, and that diversity in most every aspect of life is healthy, and is a natural result of essential individuality. I believe that diversity's natural occurrence is simply one requirement for society's growth towards communal well-being. More on that in the Pragmatic Balance section of the Chalice Integration Art Index page. [And no, that's not code; to me diversity refers to many different aspects, not just sexual orientation (let alone the fact that I'm straight and gay-friendly, which fact shouldn't be a big deal anyway).] I do believe in communal provision of special care, respect, and appropriate structure for the young, the elderly, and appropriate compensation for those less capable of utilizing opportunities afforded society in general. Three related perspectives: "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment" at the "Evolution Trends" page, "More On 'Ideals'" & "...the Concept of Perfection" at the page, "Compassion, Healing, and The Practitioner -- and Detouring 'Burn-out'."

Natal with Grand Trine & Cross
         I mentioned above my focusing on the "(very) hands-on grounded application of concepts" at some pages, [vs] about "the more eclectic aspects" at others. Put astrologically, the Capricorn in me is VERY functional and concrete goal oriented, whereas the synchonous Grand Trine and Grand Cross would seem to have me consider most everything from most every other angle as well. Finding each their best place has been a learning process in itself, of course.  

         As for my ordination and ministry: I was most recently ordained by S.H.E.S. (International Assembly of Spiritual Healers & Earth Stewards Congregations, SHES.Org) in 2001 for (my own) "Chalice-Bridging Ministries" (eclectic, ecumenical, interfaith). (That's actually short for "Chalice-Bridging Body, Mind, and Soul Ministries".) However, I was first ordained in 1987, with New Age Fellowship (Seattle, WA).
          That was actually on August 17, 1987, "Harmonic Convergence Day". There's a little story about that, totally vain perhaps, but which has to do with the synchronicity between the all the astrological significance assigned to that day at the time, and my own natal chart as well as the transit for my chart for that date. Not just referring to the cardinal cross and grand trine in my chart, but also the placement of and transit correlations between various planets and asteroids in a configuration considered significant at that time (and since), especially concerning Chiron and a rare Neptune/ Uranus conjunction. [A friend suggested I should graphically assemble the charts to illustrate the line-ups, since the line-ups on that day sat "tight-orbed" over the two upper points of the grand trine in my chart (green lines), with Neptune right over my Chiron that day.]

          The "Chalice-Bridging" style chakra balancing is based in the view that we each are a bridge between Father & Mother God/Goddess [FtNote1], & thus form a chalice for the balancing & integrating of Humanity with the Divine. Or at least ideally so, as our systems are *attuned* & our batteries are *charged* & we fulfill our true role as human embodiments of Spirit. Just as "Body-Parenting" uses a metaphore to personify the cells to communicate with them effectively -since they respond to our unconscious thoughts and emotions anyway, this approach is based in the view (or a personification of energy dynamics) based in the view that we each are a bridge -- between the yin & yang energy-vortexes (personified here as) "Father & Mother God/Goddess, thus forming a chalice of Spirit" (a bridge of energy) "for the balancing & integrating of Humanity with the Divine". [FtNote1]. Having learned more about Qigong and 5-Element Theory (2010-2011), I could call my work "Chalice-Qi-Energy-Body-Work" - IF I wanted to relate the chalice concept to the Qigong energy format, and that is one very highly efficient system for development and maintenance overall. How about "Qinergy-Body-Work"? (Ok, I'll go for that!) But -ESSENCE-ially- 'Qi' is 'Ki' is 'Chi' is the 'Ke' in 'Reike' is (Universal Energy in various forms of bio-electric in the body) ... and so on, and it's usually (always?) more important to focus on the work that works for the individual, than to create more names for attracting a different market of people that need new names to attract them to do essentially the same thing. (phew!) smile"
      FtNote1: regarding "Father & Mother God/Goddess" and "Spirit": Or the Yin & Yang of Refers to Whatever or Whomever that created all elements of Life, and the interpermiating connecting flowing energy between them, that which makes that sparky bio-electric, bio-magnetic, bio-emanating, and bio-responsive light -around and often between living organisms- that has been called the "aura" long before electronic devices began picking up on it. Whether we name Him, Her, or Them, or It, or treat it strictly as a energetic phenomenon, or whether one is a an aetheist or an agnostic or a fundamentalist or a mystic... what this is all about is what we perceive as the functional reality of the experience of, and all about how our body-minds respond to, focused healing love, including as part of energy work via those who know how energy works, as well as how it works better. This goes with the other revisions lately (2012-13) to philosophically free up the perspectives on the chalice art of this artist, so as not to be laden with overly-religious conotations, even if some might be interprete that as too liberally eclectic or even humanist. The mystic part of me sees the universe as here for us all, and the chalice as symbolizing our path to balance and co-exist in love in that universe (in the most brief summary wording), and the associated metaphors or personifications as effective for focusing energy-work as well as for engaging useful dialog between different levels of being -- even if they also represent relationships that, to me, seem relevant to that universe.

          I'll close with the bottom line of the "Body-Mind Integration..." essay: that Body-Mind Awareness is the bottom line of preventative health maintenance, and therefore is one of the most simple, efficacious, & cost effective forms of health insurance that there can possibly be. That is not an incredible statement, given that this approach is not free - it will cost you the time and energy you invest in learning how to achieve that, and whatever you give for the assistance or facilitation by capable practitioner(s).

Thank you for listening!

      About the Pages At This Site      

          The pages below, ref-linked and organized by section, have been put together, edited and re-edited over the last 25+ years, in contribution to this author's view of the art and science of body-mind integration. The first listed two essays (and chart) provides the best Introduction and overview to the body-mind concepts. Other pages have been selected for the "Intro Set" for going deeper and/or broader into related topics, including some considerations for healing practitioners. The essays on "correlations" have to do with different aspects of being, and a special section of essays for one of those, the "emotional body" and managing related dynamics (including pain). There are two sections for organizing & understanding a positive approach to life: "Question & Affirmation Techniques" and "Life Approach, Goals & Magnetism", the later which includes a page on the science of prayer (Note: the popular "World Healing prayers" are on a separate page). All the essays & pages listed below prior to the "Favorite Links" sections are authored, edited, ©, and web-managed here by yours truly, unless otherwise noted. Thank you [~Chris Pringer] (The links to pages with Self-Applicable Techniques are marked with "_T_" )


     Intro Set    

   The "Body-Mind Integration" (Essays) Page
On the physiology & psycho-physiology of storage & release of stress in muscle & other tissues (in layman's physiology & psychology), preventative maintenance, aging w/far less pain. On the storage of memory (psycho-emotional data) in the bodily tissues, how and why, including for if/when it is released; communication between body and mind, benefits; proprioceptors, personal growth, massage/bodywork, therapist's approach, etc. 1st Published in Massage Magazine, July-Aug 1992, and used by many massage schools for instruction since then. Many more essays & charts have been added since May 2011 with more 'how's and 'why's for completing the context and clarifying the dynamics and processes involved, some basic for *common sense* preventative maintenance application, some sufficiently in depth for students of the caring trades, including: the chart, "The Science Behind The Body-Mind Relationships & and Related Therapeutic Approaches" (in the reference section), "Muscle Q & A" (a kind of overview of the mind-body aspect), "Adrenaline vs Endorphins and What's That Got To Do With Sports, Brain Activity, Muscles and Tendons, and Healthfully Extended Aging..." incl. Charts of System Interfaces in Psycho-Physiology of Fascia Memory, "Body Awareness and Communications, as Related to Body-Memory and Integration", "Notes & Refs on Neuroplasticity / Cellular Re-Organization", Suggestions on "Cell Talk" - building a healing relationship with ones cells (muscles or otherwise), "EQ, IQ, Emotional Integration, and a Synergetic Relationship", and Reviews for articles on Massage, Alternative Therapies, & Pain, incl. "Study: Massages really can make pain go away"; & Sept 2011 Consumer Report; quotes, commentary & charts.


   "Core Body-Mind Integration Concepts in Context" Chart
at the Organization Chart page (Oct'11)
This chart compacts the key points into a relatively small visual space, and provides a summary of them and their implications relative to body-mind preventative maintenance, pain management, other aspects, as well as links to their respective essays or sections.

   "Tensing Yoga" and other Self-Applications
For Self-Healing, Body-Mind Awareness, & Preventative Maintenance (rev. 7/02, ..7'13).
Technique is explained for context and self-application. TY is about specific applications for chronic muscle pain, related injuries, without need to learn asanas (poses). However, TY may be used to get into positions quicker, easier, and without injury. All of which is critically related to healing or preventing injury. TY could be considered an optimized form of self-applied, neuro-muscular re-education, reinforced with a body-mind connectivity that insures a more comprehensive and long-term response (High Preventative Maintenance Gains). Page sections include those with emphesis on Tension Range, *Work/Rest Ratio*, Muscle Energy Efficiency, individual muscle focus, teamwork/ "edgework", and learn that as we interface with our cells in the way that TY leads us to do, we can directly, and naturally engage that capacity for neuroplasticity - for re-organization of the brain and other neural networks (including proprioceptors in muscles) especially when we include all elements of the approach, including focus, attitude, and rapport with the cells [as covered on the page]. Also on the page: "Low-Intensity Low-Back Exercises" Chart and "Before Rising..." instructions, a fun "Exercise for Illustrating Tension Range...", as well as a "Breathing Ratio Chart" - method & application. Subtopics including the extremely common myths about *Muscle Stretching*, a number of yoga ref-links for specific ailments/conditions as well as for selecting the right form of yoga for you, and about a "Muscle Madness" game!? "Origins of Tensing Yoga & Related Ref's from More *Traditional Yoga*" include my own self-healing story.    _T_


   "My Cells - My Children" & other metaphorical prose
Illustrates the dynamic relationships of Spirit, mind, body, and emotions, as well as the
inner-child-parent-family, including the cells, organs, and body systems. New section on "Body-Parenting" in Mind-Body Integration and a powerful form of Preventative Health Maintenance (New 12/16/09). Based on the "Re-Parenting" approach to personal growth & self-healing, I consider it a powerful adjunct to Body-Mind Integration. The page also includes a little artwork in surreal symbolism, "The Chaliverse."


   "A Gestalt Perspective," and "Seven Phases of Personal Growth" (2 Essays)
A perspective on an approach to and regard for life, one's past and present, as well as a basis for personal growth and/or therapy. I could've called it an integrated 'Gestaltist-Humanist-Buddhist-New Thought' perspective. (You could say these are my main sources, from among the various "schools" of psychology and correlating approaches to application of therapy.)


   A Class Outline
Questions & Considerations for "Body-Mind Integration and the Chalice"
This outline serves as an index in itself, as it also interconnects key considerations with links to other essays at this site for elaboration. Written from the perspective that each human being is a 'cauldron' of four distinct bodies - an experiment in learning and evolvement, to say the least. Includes "Positive Response Questions" (PRQ's) designed specifically for learning and affirming principles of this topic.    _T_


   "The Middle Path Log"
Transcript of an on-line discussion among healing practitioners and students about Integration of Body, Mind, & Spirit     (an intelligent & insightful exchange, tho' very long) [While this isn't one of my essays, the topic matched the others in this section, and my two cents was added here and there]



      Mind-Body Correlations    
Chart  of Pattern Triad & Body-Mind-Spirit Triangle Interfaces, © Chris Pringer Apr'11
"Pattern Triad & Body-Mind-Spirit Triangle Interfaces" sig'd
© Chris Pringer Apr'11


   "Understanding the Pattern Triad and The Body Pattern Assessment"
Mind-Body Relationships, (from) coping mechanisms, (to) skills, (to) gifts through challenges on one's Life Path. This page is about how the body has habitually responded to experience is evidenced by the body's holding and movement patterns. Includes (Rev'd & New Sections, 12/27/09) "Notes on Mind-Body Correlations - Source-References, Organization of *Body Memory,* and 'WHAT I DO' ". I provide an explaination for a system of assessments and mind-body correlations -- learned and integrated from/for my work with others as well as for my own life process. Other sections include excerpts from "Body Memory and ... Learning Life Lessons." About aspects to be discovered, emotionally cleared, and then employed as mental/emotional assets and guidance towards determining and accomplishing life goals. Note: Keywords referring to, or related to, the same phenomenon: fascia memory, somatic memory, tissue memory, muscle memory, somatic experience, somatic healing, somatic therapy.


   "The Lower Chakras & Synthesis of Body & Soul"
The body illustrates the dynamic relationship of the shadow elements with one's highest potential. Sections include "BODY MEMORY and the INTERPLAY of SOUL in the LEARNING LIFE LESSONS", "Psycho-Emotional Organization and the Body-Mind...", A Brief Cosmology Regarding the Body-MInd, Attitudes, and Chakras. Includes notes clarifying empathy of the 3rd Chakra from that of 4th or Heart Chakra. I consider the HEART CHAKRA the "bridging" chakra or chalice-Chakra, between the lower and upper chakras. [Rev. 10-96, 2-98, 6-98,5-99, 7-01, 4'11]


   "Fibromyalgia - Theory with Examples"
At the Fascia Memory Theory page (Apr 28-30, 2011)
about the "it's relationship to a perfuse scattering of waste products throughout the fine interstitial spaces among the cells of the muscle tissues, due to their being chronically held *contracted* and under-circulated, including trauma induced contractedness over a broad-area (including by being forcibly tickled in early childhood)..." (Maybe it's no accident that this came along shortly after the visualization chart at the "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" page, as related to *Cellular Re-Organization* and engaging *neuroplasticity*.)


    "Body-Mind Nutrition"
Considerations in relating a transition in diet & nutrition to personal and spiritual growth,
and the benefits of such transition. In addition to the title essay, includes sections, "More on this 'Natural Aging Process'" about possibly/ likely new potentials in aging without near so much disability and pain in the later stages; and essays "Dietary Nutrition, Neuro-Endocrine Infrastructure, Neuroplasticity, and Aging" on relationship of nutrition and psycho-emotional environment during infancy and childhood upon key aspects of development of 'A Stable Platform for Perception', the 'Psycho-emotional Infrastructure', it's maturation through adulthood, as well as upon the aging process; and "Blessing Nutrition" about how prayer and invocation work at the atomic & molecular levels to facilitate the optimal nutrition of the food, as well as optimal digestion, assimilation, and integration of the nutrients and vital force provided by the food. Includes some sample invocations for context and application (Jan'13). Added July'15: "The Immune System, Aging, and an Attitudinal Approach that May Improve It". Added Oct'15: Added referenced section about recent scientific break-throughs in DNA research, "DNA Research, DNA Repair, and Neuroplasticity - ...Wonderfully Validating Conclusions" and implications: To me, this implies that, given these scientifically established capabilities in neuroplasticity, including scientifically backed capabilities of the mind to effect enzymes, cellular metabolism, blood physiology (pH, enzyme processes, etc) within and around the cell matrix, we can facilitate communication among our own cells to use that same capacity to repair damages and thus heal our cells -- BEFORE they are internally damaged beyond repair [preventative maintenance that also prevents further motivation for the monetarily endowed to monetarily encourage the science of growing and buying of more organs; thus encouraging the kind of preventative maintenance that facilitates the science of true healing. And that medical authorities, as well as alternative healing practitioners, can now, with full scientific backing, teach people how to do this.


   "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer"
"Bridging Prayer & Science" - faith & intuition, Spirit working logic & emotion, and a little science to boot. Tools for working with the cells - self-healing on an energetic level, plus supportive science, concepts and references, a summary essay, "Cells & Healing Changes: How I Believe What I See; Building, Cleansing, and Paradigm Management; Body-Parenting & Healing Cell-Talk" (Rev'd Apr 2011) and "'Getting Super': Sample Personalized Visualization Prayer Chart" (more application of science than prayer in this case, as related to *Cellular Re-Organization* and engaging *neuroplasticity*; 3rd Rev Jul'15). Also "Focusing Love-Organized Healing Waters", or Water-Charging (incl. a section for the Neuro-Endocrine System), based on some very inspiring scientific findings by Masaru Emoto, including Dr. Emoto's message for transforming the water (molecules) effected by nuclear radiation.

   "Opening the Bridges & Firing the Cauldrons"
About Integrating Energy Work and Self-Healing Instruction into bodywork, a "Chalice-Bridging" style chakra balancing, and may include Reiki and/or very basic Qigong instruction. This approach is based in the view that we each are a bridge between Father & Mother GOD/ESSence, & thus form a chalice for the balancing & integrating of Humanity with the Divine. Or at least ideally so, as our systems are *attuned* & our batteries are *charged* & we fullfill our true role as human embodiments of Spirit. And in the belief that the body-mind can be a primary means of access for finding ones Way, developing appropriate and effective relationship among the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, and physical, which compose the "Body-Mind". Ref: "Triangle/Triad Interface" Chart above).


   "Approaches & Methodologies for Body-Mind Integration"
Suggestions & Resources for Considering Receiving the work as well as for Vocational Considerations. This page might also assist in understanding some basic body-mind concepts. Includes "Which Approach for Emotions" regarding "brief therapies" such as EMDR (incl. EFT the "Emo-Free", "TAP" & related Energy Psychology systems) vs dialog-based, or other Humanist approaches, Buddhist approach, etc. Aug-Sept'16: Added a) "Ron Kurtz, Daniel Siegel, John Briere, and by Mary Morgan On Memory" - with excerpts from "Neuroscience and Psychotherapy" by Marilyn Morgan, SRN, B.A., MNZAP, b) Ref/Links were added to define, and give relevant psychological context for, *Sub-Personalities* including those per "Psychosynthesis", and c) resource links and notes more particularly oriented to the aspect of trauma, the catastrophic origination of the need for body-mind integration therapies.

      Question & Affirmation Techniques    


   "The Use Of Questions (and Gestalt approach) In Effective Affirmation Therapy"
Theory & Examples for Practical Application.

Theory section explains how this (PRQ) system compares to other affirmation techniques and therapies - how and why they work, advantages of PRQ's, how you can construct them out of most any given affirmation. Includes lots of "Sample PRQ's" (Positive Response Questions) for learning and affirming any desired knowledge, Simple How-To's in developing Pragmatic use of "the right question." The "samples" work with the emotional body and intangibles in personal growth pursuits. Which, many would say, has to come before you can truly enjoy the rest anyway.    _T_

This comprises a re-hash of gestalt application of modern psychology and ancient truths, created to work for new applications; © Chris Pringer, '92, Rev'd 8'02.

"Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (In another section, Aug'11) is about clarifying what we most truly want, and how we can have that... also about HOW we respond to Pain & Loss (whether caused by disease, ourselves, others, or the economy) and are brought back together again - the *how* that can MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

   More On Ideals
at the page, "Compassion, Healing, and The Practitioner -- and Detouring 'Burn-out'." For many readers as well as this author, many of the ideals stated or implied on various pages at my site are supremely challenging to say the least, and understandably so. I write on the topic because I believe ideals help us formulate a useful vision by which we can effectively develop realistic and purposeful goals. Very few get to live up to our highest ideals, but without ideals, what would we live up to? Various perspectives in that regard via these pages: "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment" at the "Evolution Trends" page, at "More On 'Ideals'" & "...the Concept of Perfection", and the (above described) "Goal Chart" page

   "Enhanced Awareness Techniques & Societal Problem-Solving"
Removing limitations to Creative Intelligence
This page has still yet to be completed, although a great deal of the content (the information assembled years ago and continues to grow) has been spread over various pages here. Consider using the search engine here with the keywords "EQ" and/or "Emotional Intelligence." The basic message of it all is not only that we don't know how intelligent we are. But that we can - by releasing suppressed emotions and related protective "coping mechanisms" and belief patterns (some conscious and some not) - greatly expand the operation and skills of existing mechanisms or tools related to cognition, intuition, the integration of the two, and the communication of the results of all that. And it is communication that greatly effects how IQ has been measured, by the way (for good or for ill). But the greater "secret" is *ACCESS* to the noted "tools" that create, as well as work with, the data bases of knowledge. Let me try to round that up: The best minds employ the brain with wisdom in the building as well as facilitation of knowledge and skills in the appropriate use of their emotional and physical bodies via efficient communications of data and preventive health maintenance - both within and without the body-mind. The "PolyPsyArts" pages are more geared for emphasizing the "Societal Problem-Solving" in the below section of that name.

      The Emotional Body    


   "Emotion & Motivation on the Path and in Healing." -- A Cosmology of what is here referred to as the 'Emotional-Body' - that which provides the motivation or 'drive' for any sustained focus, decision, stance or action. It is the degree of emotion that makes the difference between a held belief and a mere passing thought. Includes "Emotion, Fuel, & 'the Vehicle' - Fueling or Fooling Around?", "Reward, Punishment, Justice, & Change", "Emotion & Intention; Motivation & Detachment; Self & Others", and "Asking for Forgiveness, & What's Trust Got to Do With It?" (Rev'd Jul'13)

    "WHY PAIN? Notes on Pain, Awareness & Denial" (Physical and other levels)
Aspects in Developing a Practical Approach with Compassion. I begin with basic, more physical-level concepts, and extend into other dimensions from there. There may be more proper medical terms for most of the dynamics I describe, but my purpose is to try to explain a complex but common experience in an understandable fashion. includes short essays, "Intro & Notes on Pain, Pain Reduction, Pain Elimination, Pain Desensitization", "A List Of Factors In The Perception Of Pain", "More On Referral Of Pain", "Delayed Healing", "Why Deep Massage/Bodywork?", "Should A Massage Be Painful?" (therapy may locate, or bring awareness to, what is already there, but should not add to it), "Touch-Sensivity of Muscles...", "Stress & Energy Related Pains", "Notes On Pain From Gestalt Perspective", "Internal Separation And Healing", & [added Aug 2011:] Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment - and Healing the Pain.


   "Victims, Compassion, & Responsibility --
Notes on The Emotional-Body, Denial of Pain, & 'Easy Answers' (Not)" - Edited and added (Feb'12) a Preamble "My perspective with regard to victimization ...integrates a more gestalt psychology-based perspective (and practice) as regards the emotional body. Which lends to certain modifications of the cosmology [relative to Buddhist or New Thought perspective] as related to the "victim" concept. Includes links for radio show w/interviews of "Hurricane" Rubin Carter.


   "Compassion, Healing, and The Practitioner - and Detouring 'Burn-out'"
- Published July'88 in "The New Times" (Seattle). On title-noted-aspects and related co-dependency and psycho-spiritual dynamics more or less common to therapists, nurses, doctors, and other care-givers. Also differentiates compassion from sympathy, permanent healing facilitation from symptomatic or temporary, responsibilities as related to "the work". An older writing, a compilation of principles and ideals. Also includes * prose, "The Price Of Compassion," * "The Forgiveness Set" (incl. "The Most Difficult Forgiveness," "Asking for Forgiveness" [ © Chris Pringer Jul'16 & July'13] and the transcript of the talk by Rev. Janeane Weprin at Saltwater Unitarian Universalist Church, July 26th, 2015, which I will call the most comprehensive coverage on the process that I've ever heard spoken or even read), and a graphic visual for clarifying and clearing, "Affirmation for 'Seeing' & 'Hearing'" over "Chalice Garden Multi-Chalice(8) HemiSync[12-3B]" & graphic, "Chalice Bridging" & "Synthesis" prose over "PiChal-on Sepia".


   "The Empathy Movement"
an assembly of resources and considerations, is currently at the "Chalice Integration Arts & Sciences" page. Also related on that page is 'The Lords of Culture' and Listening- a story about Language, Relationship and Communications, "the body-mind split" (or "mind-body split"), emotional intelligence (EQ) as related to IQ, implications and ramifications (cause and effect dynamics) in society, politics, foreign relations, suggestions/ considerations for pro-active response on individual and social levels, etc. And "A Kind of Summary For Pragmatic Balance" - eclectically presented summary of links to (more) essays with considerations for pragmatic approach. I dream of a day when we can be honest without it being received as emotional manipulation, as simply for what it is, although sometimes it is a call for compassion and healing. Which shouldn't have to be so threatening. Because "true people", as they say, don't mind being given such an opportunity, considering part of their own growth and maturation. But yeah, we're not there yet as a society.

    Societal Re-Education & Preventative Health Care (Prospective)    


  "Vehicle Efficiency Resource Compendium" - Efficiency Related Favorites here & abroad with special sections on Global Warming (Perspectives, Action Resources, Ref-Links), rainwater harvesting, energy, conservation, recycling, & efficiency -- including the essay that began this page, "Smooth Pedal" Preventive Maintenance - A great game & way to help the ozone layer, travel more relaxed, more safely, decrease auto wear & tear, road rage, about knowing where and how to put your metal to the pedal (instead of the other way around).

  "Hidden Fire & Pre-Emptive Volcanic Release Theory" - WHAT IF this could be determined: the optimal method and mechanics for a controlled release of volcanic exudate, including the required optimal location(s), optimal volume(s), etc, for that release ??? EG: Releasing enough pressure over time such that earthquakes could be reduced in magnitude, perhaps also in quantity -- at least for that of the more destructive events. How to go about it? Ideas and considerations are proffered at this page.

  The "QBX" project's (12) pages. Originally proposed July 2010, the "QBX" or "QEPs" system is a protective pod for a couple or handful of individuals in homes or apartments, designed for surviving earthquakes, complete with communications systems, including for medical vitals & response system w/EMS interface. That is the idea that that I presented for invention, complete with rough[?] blueprint illustrations, to a few folks (sufficiently technically and/or economically knowledgeable) in 2010 to see if they thought it was feasible. They did believe it was, except for having doubts that anyone or organization (including in government) would find enough money for it. ...included suggestions for smaller and simpler designs, and kits ...designed to actually "roll with the punches" as much as they are to resist them... Later in 2012 I found via web search that many similar ideas/ inventions had since arisen, apparently mainly in response to the quake in Fukushima. The QBX project, complete with those same rough[?] blueprint illustrations (& more, as presented in 2010)... Now at ChaliceBridge.Com in hopes that someone might have both the technical and monetary know-how to consider the idea, and possibly even implement the project in time for "the big one."

ChBullet   "Managing a Love/Hate Relationships with Politics" - some thoughts about a pretty tricky dance.

ChBullet   Social Fear - Inner Strength by [Donna] - "A synthesis of inspiration from many sources ...in desire for Peace and Unity of all people on this our paradise," defining a utopian thinker as one who seeks to solve personal and universal problems with "a combination of awareness, rational thinking, and emotional thinking," realizing the need to develop emotional problem solving techniques for [ the causative preponderance of ] "essentially emotional problems" in todays world.
    ChBullet   "New Information & Facilitating Paradigm Shift Potential" - Paradigm shift tension, anyone? How much are we ready for? But doesn't every writer asks that question - or just those who want us to "bridge" - to encourage exploration of our potentials and what we perceive as our limitations? <grin> Includes article, "Thresholds, Changing Trends, and Learning from Extremism" at the page, "New Information & Facilitating Paradigm Shift Potential." Initiating with a slightly eclectic introduction, the writing provides a fair amount of the scholastics and background research on "Threshold Effect"," and "Classic threshold models - the two most pertainent - as well as a few related uses for this variable that is useful for recognizing, assessing, and predicting key events and trends in processes. Trends being the operant word, since the current times 2015-2016 have been especially remarkable for their unpredictability. Also includes a pertainant review of Granovetter's model in Malcolm Gladwell's article, "Thresholds Of Violence" -- about the "school-shooting epidemic," "The Power of Context" and "The Tipping Point." As well as some implications - but with considerations for practical application, including for how to take all this in - AND references, including an extensive list copied from the Wikipedia page on Conscience. Finishes up with a summary assembly of context usages of "threshold effect" at the site. [New June 2016]
  ChBullet   "Solutions: Common Means to Efficient Paths" - approaches for developing current realities into those we most want. Some of the best I've found (definitely not a complete list) and an op-ed on the side. Call me a "pragmatic idealist," but I BELIEVE WE CAN GET BEYOND what seems to be the current or impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation.

  ChBullet   "A Relationship Between the Dramatic Rise in Popularity of Media and the Desire for Pragmatic Balancing of Extremes?" and its sister page, "The Mystical Jesus - Selected Reviews"
          The "Pragmatic Balance" section (at the section at the Chalice-Integration-Arts index page) and is about relationships among 1) the symbolic chalice, 2) the Holy Grail, 3) the legend, 4) the actual related history, 5) current day religious extremism, and 6) the future (psycho-social) evolution of Man.
          That is, it extends from extensive historical references (noted/linked therein) that extend back to Celtic pre-Christian times as well as to the Celtic Christian, and what is referred to as "the Matter of Britain", and more. Except for the Dark Ages which are so-named due to the most disappointing lack of historical data - very puzzling to scholars for the last many centuries.
          And I interpret that lack of documentation as directly related to the transition period (including inquisitions and destruction or hiding of documents, as well as plagues) -- that followed Constantine's assembly of documents that became the bible (via "the Church", as they censored parts of them and kept out many other documents) -- and all that implied for "the Church"s agenda, including plans for rule of what was to become Europe.

          The sister page, "The Mystical Jesus" provides the detailed story form summaries for certain historical aspects (grail, bloodline, templars...) and the lost years and more mystical background of Jesus. While all that is put into context at the "Pragmatic Balance" section.
          At Chalice Bridge, "The Bloodline of Jesus" is actually not a primary focus when comes to the symbolism of the chalice / grail, but as one evidence of the symbolism as presented. Which symbolism relates to the purpose of "polarity" in the universe, not only at the atomic level per Sacred Geometry, but in relationships - magnetism / gender / other opposites in continuum, including *extremes*). And to related interpretation of the grail legend as relates to the history (with the summaries in context), to the (psycho-social) evolution of Man, to the world's key religions as well as the Gnostics (by nature of that which unites all of them, although is not necessarily about them). All that is then related to, with implications for, current times and potential future scenarios. And to why there have been "holy wars" - and, more importantly, to why there is absolutely no need for them (if there ever was). Here, the bloodline is as much about EVERYONE having the divine connection (and inheritance and potential), as it is about one family having it.

          If you like good drama, begin with the "Mystical Jesus" page. If you like the infrastructure of analysis and implication, with lots of symbolism, psychology, and references, then off to the "Pragmatic Balance" section with you. smile To follow up, also at the Chalice Art page, is the essay, " 'The Lords of Culture' & Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, & the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context" (7'10) accompanied by, "Therapies & Levels of 'The Spectrum of Consciousness' " a seminal chart by Ken Wilber; "Paradigm Shifts" (7'10) and refs for emotional intelligence. Perhaps most notable, "A Kind of Summary for Pragmatic Balance" (of this and other pages at the site), including psycho-spiritual evolution & emotional intelligence, has also been created there. All related to perspective that Male AND Female energies form a bio-electric charge of opposite polarities, forming a vortex of energies that form "the chalice" - conceptually, if not in it's original meaning and purpose (?). It symbolizes the "bridging" of the two realms (Yin & Yang, Form & Formlessness) - the depth and breadth of which, could we understand it, would likely explain our existence.
  ChBullet   Note that the World Healing Prayers & Invocations (described just above) include much related to positive vision and empowering attitudes, connecting and accessing resources for a pro-active furtherance of democracy and a healthy citizenry and economy.

For perspective on this far-reaching multi-faceted proposal, see Fascia-Memory Project Overview Chart. The range of application extends from the medical industry to personal home use, to public education, to social and correctional rehabilitation.
          One of my main dreams is a society where/in everyone, beginning in childhood, is taught how to feel/see/read their own body-mind communications such that preventative health maintenance eventually becomes second nature. That would then be part of our upbringing and public schooling. (Sample benefit: Over time we would learn to channel our initial stress response into channels more creative than that of fight or flight. And actually, much of this "adrenal response" has been shown to be a learned response, and not necessarily innate. Hence, we would be encouraged to re-awaken and build upon what I believe to be a natural inclination, taking optimal advantage of our capacities for neuroplasticity - conscious self-healing and continuous expansion of awareness.)

A Different Take on Evolution

  ChBullet  Evolution Trends: The 'Information Age' And Its Evolution Into The 'Holographic Age'
Challenges and Realistic Goals For Survival and Creating A Desirable Future, © Nov'95

NOTE: At this website the term "evolution" refers to that of human consciousness, resulting in lasting change on the physical level.
Evolve Humanity, ChaliceVortex&Planet'evolve-balance', © Chris Pringer PolyPsyArt 2008  
          We are currently in the "Information Age" of global-scale *collection and organization * of data and data systems. The "Holographic Age" will be marked by "...the integration of data (a precursor and main component of the Holographic age) ...will bring about a tremendous explosion in capabilities of unprecedented scope, magnitude, and depth... The ability to offer/affect pre-designed physiological, emotional, mental, and psychic change on human beings..." Intelligence manages information, but wisdom manages Intelligence. This "adventurous" draft into the future (or potential future scenarios) at many key areas of evolvement of Human Society. Includes sections: "Getting There From Here - and The Political Maze In Between," "Some Trends and Developments In Health and Environment," "Psycho-Social Transition And Rehabilitation" (in corrections, education, and health), and "The Role Of Intuition Coming Home...". Recent additions include: much improved "Basis of Assessment - with "Seven Phases of Evolution"; "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment"; and "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" (& Purpose, Structure, Religion, Karma), and ref-links for the "updated" prophecies for the year 2012.
          ie: [from original August 1995 paper:] "...Our trial and initiation prior to entering the next age is dealing with the issue of 'Polarization.' So much depends on how we manage this issue during the 1995 - 2005 period of time... critical on many levels. The implications may therefore be timely, a balance of warning with hope and direction => ...'Polarization' refers to the two opposing extremes of over-identification and enmeshment. The first extreme, over-identification, relating to hyper-egoism or narcissism, includes misplaced patriotism and competition for the sake of wrong-making and degradation, nationalism that unduly separates people, bigotry, elitism, and related extremes. The 2nd extreme, enmeshment, relating to the blurring of proper boundaries (such as with emotional or energetic enmeshment, sexual abuse, any improper 'dual relationship'), includes that which occurs with [non/]secular/political or political/personal conflicts of interest. Appropriate structure (laws, regulations, professional guidelines, cultural mores, rules of conduct, etc) is the result of healthy personal and societal discrimination of values, and related priorities and goals... ...will develop out of necessity - much due to the aberrations of the info age (psychological manipulation and necessary defense systems practiced by/for/against businesses in competition as well as for military reasons => ...personal data as common knowledge <=> 'Age of Exposure' => ...the decade of the media moguls and the survival of democracy..."

        But if we get through all that, one of the many noted benefits include "... We will have the unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the most hi-tech, research data-backed, psychological ...Awareness on/of the various levels & interrelationships between these areas... The application of intuition may find an unprecedented role in terms both of breadth and of its popular integration with the more logical approaches ...As a result, various systems of 'Integrated Diagnostics' will be developed..."
          The original paper was email published in Nov '95 on listserv@intuition.org (Institute of Noetic Sciences) and Spiramed@sjuvm.stjohns.Edu. Yes, *1995* - So I guess the "system" I used was not so bad (based on the "Seven Phases of Evolution," as detailed on that page in Dec'09). Some intuition did enter in between that system and the "if this, then this" logic - scans of original notes with hand-drawn flow-charts included, but I've never called this "a prophecy," but a perceived spiritual challenge (for humanity) with potentially great rewards - an opportunity for taking responsibility. Even so: That 10 year 'prep' period has just passed - wherein so much did indeed determine about how and how soon we begin this next age - or if we do before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself. But remember "that spaceship" that's going to save us ? Wink Well, IMO, the pilots are none other than ourselves - as our Earth-Steward selves that is. So, IF it happens, not to worry, we won't miss a minute of it -- IMO, God wouldn't deprive us of the realization that we are so capable! (And responsible. Or don't we want to earn our way ?!)

ChBullet    "The Role Of Intuition Coming Home
And Recovering The "Holy Grail"

      This eclectic symbolic "Holy Grail" refers to the "Inner Chalice" of all beings. This metaphor and the terms "Grail-enhanced mind," or "Grail-System" refers to the higher/ highest potentials of ones brain, mind, or consciousness for persons of any spiritual path or religion. To an intuitive extrapolation (in 1995) on the formation of a new relationships between the function of analysis and the function of intuition, a process which would be brought about via a pro active evolvement of the human mind. AND to the human brain's development of a type of data organizing or ability that will change how right-brain or non-linear perception is a) viewed, and then b) processed and stored, so to make it more broadly applicable in whole-brain process. The "grail mind" would then serve as the universal energy balancing mechanism for mind-body consciousness. While this system has always existed, it is one whose capacity multiplies with development. "This comprises four systems on four levels, ...Most emphasized are the upper endocrine glands and the cerebral spinal fluid channels." To precede the development, a perhaps-necessary phase would be that discussed in the essay (on the Chalice Art page), "'The Lords of Culture' and Listening- a story about Language, Relationship, and the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context,"

Why the "Poly-Psy" charts and essays?   (below)
               Because they provide a summary of our current world challenges - and opportunities to gain the momentum we need to heal/transform the planet and mankind? Because our government has been greatly influenced by the 60-80% of the citizens that hasn't paid attention for so long.
         We (speaking of Americans over the last five centuries or so) have allowed/created our current condition -- in terms of various attitudes, beliefs, and values - and some interesting times wherein we re-defined certain values. And this implies, therapeutically speaking, we can therefore can *heal* our socio-political condition by changing those attitudes and re-clarifying some values over more time. That implies potential for a form of continuing *preventative health maintenance* curriculum at schools and colleges. Call me a "pragmatic idealist," but I BELIEVE WE CAN GET BEYOND what seems to be the current or impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation. Paradigm shift tension, anyone? How much are we ready for? But doesn't every writer ask that question - or just those who want us to "bridge" - to encourage exploration of our potentials as compared to what we perceive as our limitations and those limitations as actually, or just currently, imposed?

"All Religions & ChaliceScale Over Pi-Chalicel Intwined Heart & Earth" © Christopher Pringer Dec'11
          Many political science professors note the incredible degree of short memory and denial that has gone on in America. In spite of who we have had in power positions when so few Americans have been active in their selection. Perhaps that is because we want so strongly, even tenaciously, to believe in our "good guy" image of ourselves - certainly more than we want to acknowledge our attachment to our standard of living. "Our national denial" happens apparently because of that. Well, I believe it essential to the planet, considering the power of the United States, that the citizenry wake up, suffer the inevitable heartbreak, get a hold of ourselves and heal that, get real AND learn to use our anger constructively, and get in charge of what we can be proud of, and create much more of same.
         [Note: Many basic problems like world hunger are not included here - not because they are not vital/critical, but because the healing of these would naturally follow the solving of those that are addressed here. Granted, the question arises: "What might happen for humankind's overall awareness if everyone was sufficiently fed that they were all able to look outside their own immediate needs - as per Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs" (???) ]

- Copied from email (including the headers, just for the skeptical mind, which I can appreciate), it was first posted November 22, 1995, on a listserve, "Spiritual Implications for Medicine and Psychology" (Spiramed@sjuvm.stjohns.Edu), and a few days later on "The Intuition Network" of The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS, listserv@intuition.org). In web page formats, the essay has been edited since then (first time at my own webspace at AOL in 2000. And that editing was primarily for format, with some work put into the intro section (which section seems to me the most easy to MIS-understand and most difficult to sufficiently improve). Everything added since the original has been put in brackets (and usually dated) - aside from whole sections, charts, graphics, and related links (always dated).

ChBullet PRINCIPLES of NATURAL HEALING
--excerpts from "The Science of Healthful Living:" A great deal of information has been put together on this page. Note: People should know that there are health supplements that would be effective but may not be due to their being multi-level marketed in a disgustingly non-informative manner. I refer to the more unpleasant "cleansing effects" or "healing crisis" that some may experience from such supplements. Knowing the principles on this page, one may better take advantage of such events. Links for naturopathic medicine resources have been put on this page.
And it's sister page is ...

ChBullet  "The Transition Diet"
- Steps & principles telling how to transition -gradually & successfully- to a diet that promotes & sustains optimal health for body, mind, AND the planet, even from the standard American diet. Incorporate this approach as slowly or as quickly as you can maintain. (If done too fast, you may find it too uncomfortable, then bounce back to the old ways, so would just be a waste of time). Includes a Food-Combining Chart for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients, as well as for proper elimination. Other sections included: "Transition Diet," "Rebuilding Diet," "Three Day Apple Fast And Seven Day Cleanse," "About Cleansing Reactions," and "Efficient Body-Sizing Strategies (for Weight Management)".

ChBullet  "Body-Mind Nutrition"
Considerations in relating a transition in diet & nutrition to personal and spiritual growth, and the benefits of such transition. In addition to the title essay, includes sections, "More on this 'Natural Aging Process'" about possibly/ likely new potentials in aging without near so much disability and pain in the later stages; essays: "Dietary Nutrition, Neuro-Endocrine Infrastructure, Neuroplasticity, and Aging" on relationship of nutrition and psycho-emotional environment during infancy and childhood upon key aspects of development of 'A Stable Platform for Perception', the 'Psycho-emotional Infrastructure', it's maturation through adulthood, as well as upon the aging process; and "Blessing Nutrition" about how prayer and invocation work at the atomic & molecular levels (facilitating processes by re-aligning their structural & therefore magnetic/ionic arrangement) to facilitate the optimal nutrition of the food, as well as optimal digestion, assimilation, and integration of the nutrients and vital force provided by the food (Jan'13). Includes some sample invocations for context and application.

            On the page about "the path" there is as good a set of information on spiritually flavored personal growth I have ever seen. I've been reading some of the publications and they are, well, in-depth and in-breadth. If one is into responsibility for ones WHOLE BEING, it is definitely a valuable investment of time.

ChBullet Karla McLaren,
author of book, "What Your Feelings Are Trying To Tell You" Profile from the Omega Institute: "empathic healer, teacher, and award-winning author of Emotional Genius and several other books". Also on Faculty At Kripalu Center: "an award-winning author and pioneering educator whose empathic approach to emotions has taken her through the healing of her own childhood trauma into an empathic healing career. Integrating her work with the study of sociology, neurology, cognitive psychology, and social psychology, Karla has taught thousands of people through her four books and five audio-learning sets and at such venues as the Omega Institute, Naropa University, and the Association for Humanistic Psychology". While Karla disparaged the positive thought approach on the Radio Program (2/26/12), she very nicely explains the Gestalt perspective with regard to the value & importance of honoring emotions & facilitating constructive release as well as effective long-term healing.

ChBullet  JEFF BROWN at Soulshaping.Com
"Jeff Brown presents a new and distinctly human paradigm for expanding our consciousness: Ascending with both feet on the ground. This paradigm is rooted in the reality of our daily lives, and makes no distinction between our spiritual quest and our emotional life. Our feelings, our unresolved issues and life experiences, are the grist for the soul mill that takes us higher. Rather than looking for the answers outside of ourselves, we choose to look inside, in our often ignored bodies of wisdom. An over-cover agent for the divine, Jeff had glimpses of his soul-scriptures throughout his life- criminal defence lawyer, psychotherapist, author... He became a lawyer in Toronto in 1993, after apprenticing with famous Canadian Criminal Lawyer Eddie Greenspan. After hearing an inner voice calling him away from law, Jeff began an adventure in self-excavation and expansion that lasted 15 years, culminating in the clarified call to write Soulshaping. He spent over six years at it, then refused a significant contractual offer to publish it, prefering instead to self-publish on his own terms. Soon thereafter, his first press run sold out, helped in large part by a homeless man who sold it on the streets of Toronto. It was quickly picked up by North Atlantic Books and a new edition was released in August, 2009, distributed by Random House. As time has passed, it has become clear that SOULSHAPING represents a model of Grounded spirtuality that speaks to individuals from all walks on life. The very personal and heartfelt way that Jeff takes the reader through his journey calls out to the reader's own quest for true-path. It is evocative, original and highly relational, and not to be mistaken for self-help books that preach at the reader with familiar aphorisms. Jeff is currently in Toronto, leading the Soulshaping movement, and completing a film he is co-producing that is related to spiritual teacher Bhagavan Das, of Be Here Now Fame. Also starring Ram Dass, Seane Corn and Deva Premal and Miten, the film is named KARMAGEDDON. Related YouTube

Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, MD, is the author of "Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology" (2012), "Parenting From the Inside Out -- How A Deeper Self-understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive" (2014), and "Developing Mind -- How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are" (2nd Ed, 2015), among an extensive array of seminal works in integrative healing, as well as a pioneer in the field called interpersonal neurobiology. "This highly integrative field is not a division of one particular area of research, but rather is an open and evolving way of knowing that invites all domains of both academic and reflective explorations of reality into a collective conversation about the nature of the mind, the body, the brain, and our relationships with each other and the larger world in which we live. This emerging approach is fundamental to exploring a range of human endeavors, including the fields of mental health, education, parenting, organizational leadership, climate change intervention, religion, and contemplation.  Knowing about the way the focus of attention changes the structure and function of the brain throughout the lifespan opens new doors to healing and growth at the individual, family, community, and global levels." Dr. Siegel and associates have gone the extra mile in prolifically translating all this into pragmatically useful training manuals for students and practitioners, and for a most impressive variety of applications in mental health, especially pediatric psychology, as well as in self-healing and conscious awareness.

   "Integration" by Krysta Gibson,
about Common myths vs realities about psycho-spiritual integration; effective guidance about feelings and memories, 'living in the now', 'releasing' events and people, 'forgiving and forgetting' the past - for living the spiritual life fully and meaningfully. Originally published by Krista Gibson in "The New Times" of Seattle. Through the late 80's & most of the 90's, I always read Krysta's essays if I didn't have time to read anything else, and kept copies of various or her articles handy for my clients to take home with them. Still current...

   Subpersonalities
"...based in the personal unconscious form a central strand in psychosynthesis thinking. 'One of the first people to have started really making use of subpersonalities for therapy and personal growth was Roberto Assagioli', psychosynthesis reckoning that 'subpersonalities exist at various levels of organization, complexity, and refinement'[24] throughout the mind. A five-fold process of recognition, acceptance, co-ordination, integration, and synthesis 'leads to the discovery of the Transpersonal Self, and the realization that that is the final truth of the person, not the subpersonalities'... Psychosynthesis is one of the earliest forerunners of both humanistic psychology and transpersonal psychology, even preceding Jung’s break with Freud by several years. Assagioli’s conception has an affinity with existential-humanistic psychology and other approaches which attempt to understand the nature of the healthy personality, personal responsibility and choice, and the actualization of the personal self; similarly, his conception is related to the field of transpersonal psychology, with its focus on higher states of consciousness, spirituality, and human experiencing beyond the individual self. Accordingly, Assagioli served on the board of editors for both the Journal of Humanistic Psychology and the Journal of Transpersonal Psychology.

   Subpersonality (Defined)
(From Wikipedia)
: "A subpersonality is, in transpersonal psychology, a personality mode that kicks in (appears on a temporary basis) to allow a person to cope with certain types of psychosocial situations.1 The mode may include thoughts, feelings, actions, physiology, and other elements of human behavior to self-present a particular mode that works to negate particular psychosocial situations.2 1 The average person has about a dozen subpersonalities1" A subpersonality is distinguished from a Dissociative Identity disorder (formerly: Multiple personality disorder) in that subpersonalities are merely personas or pieces of a whole, whereas DID is characterized by (at least) two separate and distinct personalities who have their own patterns of interacting with the environment. ...American transpersonal philosopher Ken Wilber identifies subpersonality as "functional self-presentations that navigate particular psychosocial situations."1 For example, if a harsh critic responds with judgmental thoughts, anger, superior feelings, critical words, punitive action, and/or tense physiology when confronted with her own and/or others' fallibility, that is a subpersonality of the harsh critic kicking in to cope with the confrontation situation.1 [1: Kevin A. Fall, "Theoretical Models of Counseling and Psychotherapy" and 2: Rowan, J "Subpersonalities: The People Inside Us"]

   Into the Conference Room— Exploring the Inner Troublemakers
- Two articles on the "Sub-Personalities" with page links to more (including "How Can I Recognize My Inner Child?" At the Alchemy Institute [as related to Alchemical Hypnotherapy, one of my trainings -cp]. "One of the best tools for clarity in the Alchemical tool chest is the Conference Room. But what exactly IS a Conference Room process, and how does it work? It all starts with the sub-personalities. Though each of us appears to be one united ego, at least on the outside, if we look into the subconscious this is clearly not true. Every one of us has a multitude of inner voices that express themselves to us regularly, and often change our behavior..." [Another good set of perspectives on the subject]

   "Body-Parenting" (at the "Innercommunications" page)
At this site, Body-Parenting is based on the "Re-Parenting" approach of emotional awareness based personal growth & self-healing. In layman's terms: Re-Parenting is a therapeutic methodology that uses a kind of dialog between core components of one's psyche. This approach is more influenced by John Bradshaw ("Homecoming"), John Pollard ("Self-Parenting: A Guide to Your Inner Conversations"), and on Humanist Gestalt perspectives more than on Transactional Analysis. Albeit TA contributed greatly to the very basis of therapeutic dialog. The body-parenting adaptation of the Re-Parenting approach is additionally influenced by Hakomi body-centered psychotherapy. In my working view, the sub-personalities (as referenced above) are generally distinct and apart from the "Inner-Child," although the inner child may co-opt one or more subpersonalities to serve in coping mechanisms- until the 'issues' that gave rise to the mechanism(s) are sufficiently resolved or healed. [working view per this summary in context, my own approach (general, specifics), and training -cp]

ChBullet HeartMath Institute
"We have a tremendous body of research here at the Institute on the heart and its influence. The fact that electrical energy produced by the heart is 60 times stronger than that of the brain is not our research; that is known by anybody involved in the biophysics field. What we've been able to show is that yes, that's true, and that frequency is being received by every single cell in the body. And the frequency content of the heart's electrical energy emission changes relative to our perceptions, how we're taking in what we're taking in. So certain heart-based types of qualities like care, appreciation or love that have often just been associated metaphorically with the heart really do produce dramatic changes in the electrical energy output of the heart when people are perceiving/receiving from a place of care or appreciation. And in turn, our research shows that when that electrical energy changes, it goes to what's called 'coherent frequency patterns'. We're able to correlate that to changes in the immune system and changes in hormonal balance. And we also see changes in perception and intelligence. There's a lot more to what the heart is doing than people realize. It's not just a blood pump."

Illnesses do not occur spontaneously. Symptoms are not the causes of diseases but expressions of the body’s internal miscommunications. Causes may occur on many levels, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. To accurately identify and treat the root cause of diseases with Yi Ren Medical Qigong, there are specific practice routines which can help individuals recover completely. Yi Ren Medical Qigong practice increases both the therapists/practitioners’ levels of awareness , assists individuals in identifying the fundamental underlying causes of dis-ease on all levels, and encourages practitioners to work on the root causes rather than symptoms." -Dr. Sun

From index page: "Human's inner medicine is capable of curing almost all chronic and complicated diseases and uprooting all root causes. Yet, people are always sparing no efforts in searching for medicine outside their own bodies. This site is created partly for helping those who have lost hope of curing their chronic diseases..."

ChBullet Chi Institute
For more than 15 years, CHI Institute has been investigating vital energy - the basis of acupuncture and other Chinese medical technologies. Human vitality is measurable and observable in many ways. Their research in - Hyaluronic Acid in most remarkable, indicating a benchmark not only in energy research, but in medical science.
          Research in Measuring Qi has resulted in extensive study into the sound of the physical body. One form of energy which has been verified in this way is infrasonic sound emitted from the hands of healers. In searching for a mechanism, he then used an early model of the Infratonic, which reproduced only the infrasonic component of the healer's energy output, and found a similar shift in EEG, as shown in the table below. This research has led to the development of various Infratonic sound producing devices. These devices have since been used very successfully in the healing rehabilitation of racing horses, and then with humans. Another area of research is the field of Bio-electric Vitality, which led to development of devices which support and strengthen the electrical and magnetic aspects of the human energy field during air travel, or in any polluted or environmentally challenging environment.

ChBullet About Traditional Chinese Medicine at Nurse Groups .Com
"Traditional Chinese medicine, or TCM, originated from China about 5,000 years ago, and it was developed based on the understanding the relationships between the human body and the environment. This form of medicinal practice takes into account the influences of nature and the cosmos. It also incorporates Chinese philosophical and biological theories, such as the Yin-yang, the Zang Fu theory, the Meridian system, and the Five Phases. Some of the common TCM practices include Chinese herbalism, dietary therapy, acupuncture, and Shiatsu and Tui Na massage. It was only in the 1950s that modern TCM became a recognized medical system in the western world. ..."

ChBullet Our Light Body: A Kundalini Awakening Testimonial
By Mary E. (Betsy) Rabyor, who was born in Wisconsin and lived in Nevada, Florida and Spain. She went to college and was a computer programmer for 17 years, with family and suburban life. Since 1990, she has meditated and learned self-healing techniques. In August of 1999, she spiritually awakened, quit her job and devoted her life to self-realization and helping others. Shortly after starting Reiki self-healing in 2005, her kundalini unexpectedly awakened. She continues to work with her kundalini transformation today. She lives in Wisconsin and is a skilled distance healer, author, poet, intuitive, and spiritual mentor. [Very very impressed with her most interesting life story, I found one good place to begin (relative to *consciousness*), especially if you're not familiar with an eastern or esoteric point of view, is "What is the personality".

ChBullet The Inflammatory Theory of Depression
By Lewis Mehl-Madrona

ChBullet Energy Psychology at Southeast Institute
Energy psychology focuses on the interrelationship of energy systems, emotion, behavior, psychopathology, and health. These systems include the electrical activity of the nervous system, acupuncture meridians, chakras, biofields, and morphogenetic fields.
[ In my opinion, based on discussion with various practitioners, EMDR (incl. EFT the "Emo-Free", "TAP" & related Energy Psychology systems) works very well (and relatively quickly) for many people. And for vets and PTSD, EFT can "put the fire out". But it may not result in more than brief relief in cases where the cause of the trouble is based in, or critically anchored to, deep-seated emotions that were traumatically suppressed in early childhood. Per reasons as indicated at pages by yours truly, and/per those references of my teachers in body-centered psychology. I'm referring here to considerations in the difference between Gestalt, New Thought, EFT, and Behavioral schools of psychology, the different approaches to what some of us call "the emotional body", the cause of emotional pain, what we might call "true" preventative maintenance, etc. EFT seems to be a cross between Behavioral and New Thought(?). Exceptions to that opinion would be in the case where, and to the degree that, the associated trauma is simultaneously felt (enough to be validated), observed, and breathed-through, as it moves through the energy system (ie: via polarity/meridian/chakra system if/as applies to one's modality), and to/through the CSF, and thus out of the body, during and/or subsequent to the EFT/related session. Otherwise, how is any associated and stored emotional component, born out of unresolved confusion at an early age, going to get out of the system, for the purpose of creating symptoms, so as to signal the deeper cause, so as to resolve our problems - as we were designed to do? How? - by whatever route the self next finds to work. To the degree these therapies are truly effective, then the trouble is that it might also be more destructive, with that being better disguised, perhaps "only" internally, via organ disfunction (per storage of the associated emotion and related stresses, affecting circulation thence cell-function). Again, just my opinion, acknowledging that "Energy Pschology" probably IS the best for certain conditions, especially when practiced by someone who has at least working knowledge of when, how, and why the varying perspectives apply. Thank you for your consideration. ~Chris Pringer ]

"In a recent article in the LA Times, Philip Clayton, Dean of Faculty at Claremont School of Theology, writes that the fastest growing religious group in the United States is "spiritual but not religious," containing a shocking 75 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29. ...Clayton argues that young people are not necessarily rejecting a sense of God, rather they feel that religious organizations are too concerned with money and power, too focused on rules and too involved in the structures of the political status quo. ...[Another Ref: "The Coming Interspiritual Age" (Namaste Publishing 2013), Dr. Kurt Johnson,]...We explore the deeper contemplative dimension of this interspiritual movement in our manifesto, "New Monasticism: An Interspiritual Manifesto for Contemplative Life in the 21st Century," as well as the sacred activist side in "Occupy Spirituality: A Radical Vision for a New Generation" (forthcoming, North Atlantic Books, Adam Bucko and Matthew Fox)."

That's what I'm calling it, as it is *Spot-On* for reminding one of how to "Scope-In, Scope-Out" in any tough circumstance - it can be the perfect message for holiday seasons, especially when mixed with warnings of international terrorism, etc. Reverend James Kubal-Komoto of Saltwater Unitarian Universalist Church (Des Moines, WA) put together and gave this talk, and can be heard here - select Dec.6, "All Will Be Well", as well as via text transcript.

"Man is coming out of his state of ignorance, the ignorance which made man perceive only from his physical environment and create concepts about this environment, ignoring his relationship with the cosmos, thereby shunning everything which would give him awareness, and thus causing the interfering capacity of the Universal Laws which are not psychological or physiological, but metapsychophysio-logical - not a defiance of our physical laws, but an expansion of these laws." - Jack Schwarz (1924 - 2000). Aletheia's programs synthesize the findings of science, and the revelations of spirituality. The study of our brainwaves and the importance of the science of Autogenics for self-regulation is emphasized strongly at Aletheia. Pages include: Tools for Discovery, Lifestyle Assessments, Current Message, About Aletheia, About Jack Schwarz, Aletheia Network Community.

by Carlos Barrios"
via SERI (Subtle Energy Research Institute)

Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge. Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of 'Chilam Balam' and various ancient text. "...All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. -- It will change --everything will change. Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth ...The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition. ...Now is the time to awaken and take action. ...Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history. ...Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. ..."

By pushing to the outer limits of their discipline, a feat which requires true genius, they found themselves face to face with those realities that physics categorically could not explain. ..."

  ChBullet *Nine Faces of Christ* - a book by Eugene E. Whitworth
Not about Christianity but about "the Golden Thread ...which seems to form the common core of every major religion." It's eclectic, not evangelical. Progressive Christians might enjoy most of it, tho it does get into some things they might call "new age," as it goes into the question or nature of 'virgin birth,' healing, and some other things. But mostly it's a novel created out of books on Jesus that include "The Lost Years." And it is written in the first person - as if Jesus were telling it, from the time he was just under 5 years old, to a little after his crucifixion and reappearance. That includes inner dialog of thought and emotion as the character and personality of this Jesus, Joseph-bar-Joseph, is built. All of which is quite human in terms of emotions but also portraying a much quicker maturation than than most of us experience, particularly in spiritual understanding. The story gives most interesting attention to Joseph and Mary - as they play vital roles in His development throughout the novel. And yet, it's a very heart-warming story, an adventure story, a relationship story with not only His various teachers, but also a partner. Really! She is also a highly advanced mystic - so the book is also a love story! It was the first book I ever got wet eyes with, so I've read the whole story aloud to a few close friends - they often were unable to wait between chapter readings.

ChBullet Biomedical Research Needs a Paradigm Shift by Sarah S. Knox, PhD (April 2011)
"... I believe the problem lies in two fundamental principles currently dominating biomedical research, both of which are based on outdated assumptions. The first is reductionism, the belief that complex diseases can be understood by dissecting them into their individual subcomponents (for example, genes, receptors, transcription factors, and signaling pathways). The second is materialism, the belief that matter is the primary cause of all physiological functioning, diseases, cognitions, and thought processes. ...Despite the importance of energetic aspects to human physiology, we limit research on functional mechanisms and treatment modalities to particulate matter. This is not consistent with quantum theory and makes the primary theoretical framework of biomedicine more than ninety years out of date. ... influences what we choose to investigate and can inadvertently introduce bias. If we only investigate the elephant’s tail, we may conclude that elephants are skinny and move like a snake. If we only investigate particulate matter, we will definitely find significant correlations, but will it help us understand causality and provide enough information for effective treatments? ..."

"For decades, the Institute of Noetic Sciences has conducted research, created educational programs, and engaged the consciousness community in conversations on transformations in consciousness. In 1997, a multidisciplinary team of researchers initiated a series of studies on the process of worldview transformation. The goal has been to under­stand the process by which people experience fundamental shifts in perception that alter how they view and interact with themselves and the world around them. In particular, our team investigated factors that facilitate the kind of worldview transformations that result in people’s increased sense of purpose, meaning, and prosocial behavior. Through this research, we identified a naturalistic model of worldview transformation. We published our findings at length in the book Living Deeply. Recently, our research and education team has begun to apply our work on worldview transformations to the aging process, to the challenges and opportunities that seniors face. ..."

ON SCIENCE, CONSCIOUSNESS, & WORLD CHANGE [May '07, Jan '09]

          I have been (returned to) studying up on some things, thanks to the makers of "What the Bleep Do We Know" (at WhatTheBleep.Com). And more recently (Jan '09) I am reminded of HeartMath.Org with their promotion of the "De-Stress Kit for the Changing Times." Some might say that both 'Bleep' and 'HeartMath' began with what I'll call "The Tao of Physics Clan" of Fritjof Capra (of the 70's-80's era of published studies & thought) as well as "the Bleep Clan" of Fred Alan Wolfe, the academically most esteemed members of which integrated the knowledge for this much needed production. Through these efforts, IMHO, they offer ground breaking implications for mankind, for our victory over the current period of challenge to world community, re-initiating possibilities for survival into the 22nd Century.
          Most any psychologist or naturopath (or most any M.D.) will tell you that the most difficult thing for any human to do is break a habit, whether physical, emotional, or mental. Or as the 'Bleep' folks put it, "Nerve cells that fire together wire together, but Nerve cells that don't fire together -- or loose their long-term relationship by our interuppting that and observing the effect, then we break the automatic response mechanisms it takes, and then are free to be there for us as we are fully present with each experience" [close paraphrase, -cp]. One way of defining any world problem (by cause and effect) is its association with one or more addictions (drugs, violence, denial, etc), relative to it's association with things that create beneficial effect (upon oneself, others, or situations. This has everything to do with "Neuroplasticity", and the brain essentially being a tool kit that we each have opportunities to develop and enhance.
          Breaking habits is exactly the potential of what I call the "Bleep Tool Kit": those things (methodologies, practices, attendant devices if/when appropriate) that provide the capability to break habits on every level, whether personal or interpersonal, community or inter-community, and whether just conceived or fully manifested. Creation of our individual and community habit-breaking tool kits depends on the investment of time and application of principle - via the focus of one or more people. IMO, that's the first half of 'World change' - the other half is the personal and communal application of the tools.
          The "De-Stress Kit" provides much for initiating healing on the personal level, with great potential for assisting development of inner stillness and clarity. Such benefits can certainly, even naturally, expand to most every communal context. The HeartMath.Org web site is rich with fun tools for self-assessment and quickly introducing body, mind, and emotional health. It also provides FAQ's and voluminous research reports and related links & references. [Please note: as far as I know, there is no formal relationship between HeartMath.Org and WhatTheBleep.Com; I am associating them by common function - tools for conscious personal & world change. I consider their kit a valuable, perhaps essential, part of the "Bleep Tool Kit" - as I would any system(s) that does the same for an individual, actually. In you want to get really serious about such a tool kit, I would suggest integrating Chi-Gung, yoga, and a well-formed 'power-of-spoken-word' system with all the above. -cp] De-Stress Kit

WhatTheBleep-Thm4crp.jpg
          Remember *TM* (Transcendental Meditation) - and it's effectiveness upon whole communities ? Once the media made it all about the person (the guru), and not about the function and capability - for anyone who wanted to invest the time and energy ...well, at that point the potential was neutralized - until 'Bleep' resurrected the offer (with a much more grounded yet far-reaching platform). And I don't mean to imply that 'Bleep' is all about such serious things. It's as fun as it is intellectually stimulating, even as "wondrous," as it pulls together and makes understandable so many realms of knowledge in a practical way, including the quantum physics that backs it all up!

          All that (study, focus, etc) has effected my professional work as well as most every outlook on life. That effect began during my studies into consciousness in the mid 70's, much more in the later 80's. However, that has dramatically increased recently as I've only begun to realize the (far more) integrated picture (with the implied potentials) that I attempt a useful summary of in the above paragraphs. Below are some excerpts from the 'Bleep' website.

          "Following the release of 'What the BLEEP Do We Know!?', in Q&A after Q&A, conference after conference, the filmmakers were besieged by requests for more: More information, more science, more applications to their personal lives. August 1, 2006 marks the response to these requests with the release of What the BLEEP Down the Rabbit Hole, Quantum Edition multi-disc DVD set.
RabbitHole-Thm3.jpg

WhatTheBleep-Thm5crp.jpg

          "The original 'What The Bleep Do We Know' was made for a theatrical experience of under two hours. With these new expanded versions [in 'Down the Rabbit Hole'], the filmmakers were finally able to include all the topics as originally intended. The completed picture presents all the elements that are intrinsic to the worldview put forth in BLEEP. Topics such as Quantum Entanglement, the Double Slit Experiment, Healing and the Cell, the split and re-unification of spirit and science - all are addressed in the detail required to tell the story. Hopefully they stimulate the viewer to seek further explorations. It may be the definitive BLEEP, but it is not the last word its the final beginning." The scientists make up quite the impressive list (click to read about them & what they say).
          "Often dubbed 'the Critic proof movie' due to its ability to weather all sorts of negative reviews, What the BLEEP has an interesting history in the media. Not all are bad, not all are good, but the movie always seems to have extracted a strong reaction in the reviewer. To see what they said in the media, click here."

On Body-Mind Awareness & Preventative Health Maintenance
Including
  "MUSCLE Q & A"     "Why Does Body Awareness = Optimum Health Insurance ?"
  "Cells, Awareness, And Body-Parenting In Body-Mind Integration"     "Healing As Related To Body-Awareness"

"MUSCLE  Q  &  A"
The orginal (and much more brief) version of that at the "Body Mind Integration..." essay page, which provides a good intro-overview for how & why these topics relate to making a permanent difference in tension management, aging with the effects of youthful injuries showing up, and dealing with that & engaging body awareness for preventative health maintenance


          What is an appropriate range of muscle tension - between fully working and fully resting? Are your muscles toned and in shape or are most of them simply "hard" due to improper circulation, lacking proper elimination, and overly congested with cell waste ? Why does a muscle twitch? When is muscle tension chronic, when is it more acute or immediate? - How to tell? What's the physiological difference? What's age got to do with it (why some older folks' muscles are in trouble, and why some others' are in better shape than kids who think they are "toned"? How do we isolate, focus awareness on, and train muscle tension range? What's that got to do with proper cellular circulation/ elimination, energy levels, coordination, and muscle efficiency? What has your liver got to do with it? Your lymphatic system? (What your yoga teacher may not be telling you - perhaps until you go for private lessons, or at least follow-up on their recommended reading. So, what questions might you want to ask?) What "yogi's" can do and why? (part of the answer is elaborated in "Autobiography of a Yogi", but for most folks reading this, how about the actual psycho-physiology of it? is it just "mind over matter"?) What is "Controlled Motor Response", and what's that got to do with muscle habits & movement patterns, chronic tension, and "Body Memory"? Why and how would you engage in "cell-talk" (developing a working relationship) during the muscle (re)training process, for any other *chronic* condition? What does attitude, approach, consistency, and sincerity have to do with how your cells respond? And what could that (along with muscle tension dynamics and body-memory) possibly have to do with "Neuroplasticity"

          Some of these questions are already answered in various essays (beginning here and below for intro's, then with the essay, "Body-Mind Integration in the Personal Growth Process" and other sections and leads on that page). These are ALSO the kinds of things I may cover inDEPTH with clients, to the extent they are interested, based on how and why they ask, etc. For now, many of the titles and some of what you read at the Chalicebridge site may seem to you way too intense, esoteric, or off-planet. But most of those titles came about when I was working with people you may describe with the same words (although I may not  smile ). And, you may relate better to the actual content than to the title of an essay. On the one hand, I don't do sound-bytes well; on the other, please don't try to read the site in one sitting - there is way too much here for that. eg: Learning is more than what your head does, digestion takes time, assimilation takes a little more, and integration of knowledge is a process... and here is where we begin find the difference between information, knowledge, and wisdom.

WHY DOES BODY AWARENESS = OPTIMUM HEALTH INSURANCE ?

          Body-Mind Awareness -- as the bottom line of preventative health maintenance -- is one of the most simple, efficacious, & cost effective forms of health insurance there can possibly be. Why? Focused awareness to the body, which occurs naturally with massage therapy and energy-work, brings circulation of blood, nerve, and bio-magnetic energies, and thereby all of one's natural healing capacities to the cells. Therefore, circulation improves where caring attention is directed, especially if focused simultaneously from within and also from a practitioner. Cells do not complain (with pain signals) where circulation is plentiful - except in cases of acute injury, emotional distress, and one type of headache.

          Learning body-mind awareness, which (I will say) is promoted more easily and naturally during massage therapy and energy-work than any other activity (depending on what kind of yoga you might consider, and how you practiced it) - thus becomes the bottom line of preventative health maintenance - and equates to health insurance. All that what this insurance costs then, is the time it takes to apply one's awareness - other than the cost of the sessions once or twice per month perhaps. But with the sessions (or yoga perhaps, certainly with both) you get all the other benefits as well: clearing of lymphatic channels, relaxation, clarity of mind with a break from daily routine, clearing of muscular holding and movement patterns (actually a big part of body-mind awareness, as well as injury prevention, but one that is not as easy to retain when not receiving regular sessions). And for some, it is also a safe place to talk, if desired about whatever stress/or(s) may be attending the tense muscles, to receive the benefits of counseling as well. Is there a practitioner in your neighborhood who facilitates this kind of work?

CELLS, AWARENESS, and BODY-PARENTING
in BODY-MIND INTEGRATION

          Like kids, cells do best (by far) if we attend to their needs for nutrition, sanitation, and feeling loved. This attention to muscles simply but vitally improves circulation through them. The muscles appropriately use the nervous system to get our attention. Dulling their call for help instead of properly attending to them tells them we have other higher priorities - whether or not we actually do. But when we learn to listen to them, they will tell us, in their own physical and/or emotional language, what changes need attending to (finding what responses to them work best for the whole being). That learning is most easily, readily, and effectively facilitated with the kind of focused awareness that massage therapy naturally encourages.

WHY?     HOW?

          Injuries occur primarily due to overly tensed muscle cells, to unable to flex with events and circumstances in our environment. Cells are not bad, or wrong in any way for being overly tense due to having their circulation crimped by compressed cell structures, thereby deprived of good connection to the sources of nurishment, and unable to sufficiently rid themselves of waste products from all their hard work. Certainly not for or becoming deseased or disfunctioning as a result, let alone for trying to maintain systemic equilibrium by whatever means are left to them. Like kids, they are habitually responding to our own unconscious inner messages. Those that we've been giving them since our formative years - about how to respond to the conditions. Under harsh conditions in early life, they adapt and find a way to cope -- if at all possible, if you tell them they have to -via thoughts, and feelings. If they don't get "the all clear" (especially if they've never "heard" it before), then they maintain the "armoring."

          Held long enough, thoughts and feelings become decisions and attitudes about life. Cells can actually maintain those -via adaptive roles- and for a whole lifetime, if they don't get a corrective message. I.E.: IF we, as infants, often needed to tense up -or "armor up"- various muscles for emotional or physical protection (ie: when adults around us acted insensitively or worse), THEN we most likely continued through adulthood to hold various muscles in an overly tense state - "ready" to respond to more of same, perhaps expecting life to be that way. The nervous system is designed to get our attention when we are doing something unhealthy. It's not the cells' fault if that system has been muffled by our own choice.

          But would you really like getting used to living underfed, unclean, and insensitive to the warning signals? Assuming your answer is no, the next question may be about how to remedy such a situation where we have basically adapted to less than optimal conditions? I suggest that first, we fix the supply system and take care of those basics. Secondly, we remedy the attitude that got them that way, or else the cells will never feel they can drop the coping mechanisms, let alone learn what a happy, communicative, and cooperatively sharing environment is about.

          It's generally the more complex sets of coping mechanisms that are referred to as "Inner Children." Which term refers to the persona(s) of the emotional body, that have been created by the body-mind, not only in order to protect the psyche from painful memories, but in order to finish, at a later time, certain interupted processes. Those processes are related to the basic emotional and/or physical needs that were only partially and/or temporarily fulfilled, by the coping mechanisms. Our capacities for neuroplasticity provide for the memory storage coping mechanism process to be initiated (a form of "negative neuroplasticity"), but also provide for our memory retrieval and/or integration as needed for healing.

          Muscle cells need to know/experience what relaxation is, as well as what intense work is, in order to have an appropriately full range of tonicity/contractedness, and to find the right tone for a given condition. Cell systems adjust, based on our messages to them. Perhaps especially those messages that are aligned with long-term health, since our bodily systems seem designed for adaptation and endurance.

          NOTE: It is said that Our own voices and thoughts carry the most weight with our own cell systems. And that *verbalizing* a belief or decision, especially doing so *with feeling,* is much more powerful that just thinking it. Sometimes we will receive insight about a corrective action we must take; i.e.: by newly feeling the need to adjust our posture or some kind of bodily movement, or even due to reviving memories (that were previously suppressed). Details of these processes are explained in the essay, "Body-Mind Integration in the Personal Growth Process"- The How's And Why's Of Psycho-Emotional Storage of the Body-Mind (in layman's physiology & psychology): When, how and why tension is stored and released; communication between body and mind, benefits; proprioceptors, personal growth, massage/bodywork, therapist's approach, etc. Originally published by the author in Massage Magazine, July-Aug 1992. Since May 2011, many essays and charts have been added for further completing the context and clarifying of the dynamics and processes involved, means of addressing chronic conditions, and more 'how's and 'why's, some basic, some sufficiently in depth for students of the caring trades.

          "My Cells -My Children" and other selections of metaphorical prose & metaphor conveys, in a less analytical way, the nature of the dynamic relationships and 'Inner Communications' among mind, body, emotions, and Spirit, that underlies the 'Body-Parenting' approach for Mind-Body-Spirit Integration, as well as the INNER-child-parent-family relationships. Some special applications of body-parenting are explained in "Tensing Yoga - Exercises for Self Healing, Preventative Maintenance, & Mind-Body Awareness".


SUMMARY:
          With body awareness, learning to listen and respond to our cell systems, we enhance our senses naturally. We give the cells the corrective messages about tonicity, circulation, function, etc. And thereby we provide opportunity for our self-healing mechanisms to be maintained, and turned back on as necessary. "Body-Parenting" approach teaches and encourages awareness of these connections and developing methods of interfacing with our cells & self-healing mechanisms for personal growth and self-healing (EG: of most directly, naturally, and productively engaging our capacities for Neuroplasticity). A set of short summary personal quotes on body-mind awareness are in the Professional Bio Section. Preventative Maintenance is discussed further in the Body-Mind Integration Brochure. A more esoteric view is covered in the next section.

On the Use of METAPHOR

         The article, "A Neuroscientist Explains [the workings and valuable use of] Metaphors," nicely validates the use of metaphor for such purposes as engaged here. It is about how we can transfer the message of a metaphor for accomplishing more effective yoga results in the physical body - since we already do this naturally for many things. AND so it is barely a stretch (so to speak) for us to understand how the focused use of the *Body-Parenting* metaphor can effectively increase circulation and healing capabilities in our cells - certainly to the degree that stress, attitude, beliefs, etc has been a cause of any decrease in the blood, meridian, and/or other energy circulation.
         From article description: "...[for the] creation of a unique neural network in our brains ... [including] the neural circuitries that represent the thoughts and behaviors [since a synapse is] a neural associative bridge between two cerebral stores of information ...This is just one simple example of the power of metaphor to transform, but the possibilities of fusing two or more pools of knowledge to promote our own self-growth are countless. Imagine what synergy you might create for your self."

HEALING AS RELATED TO BODY-AWARENESS

Taking a step further with the "Body-Awareness = Health Insurance idea (above)
into what might be called "Chalice Bridging Arts & Sciences":

          If it is true that "God helps those who help themselves," or that "the door to the heart opens from the inside," and if it is true that humans learn by exercising free will and making adjustments based on the results, and finally, if the body-memory (Myo-fascia-based memory-storage) operates as noted and referenced above, ... then it most probably follows that the amount of God's healing energy flowing into our cells (and lives in general) depends on how much we allow -- via our conscious or unconscious messages to our cells. And might the doors to the cells be on the inside too - via our attitudes? And if such considerations have merit, might it not follow that such circulation of energies (via our thought, feeling, and action) is the only thing that does heal a cell, organ, system, living organism, situation, etc? And if that were true, what could be more effective than focused awareness on our cells, which massage therapy naturally encourages ? (And yes, so do various self-applications such as Tai Chi, Chi Gong, and yoga, including "Tensing Yoga") (not an esoteric topic, but for pragmatic application for chronic pain, as immediate as needed).

          To the body-mind, cells are the most basic source of reproduction, instruction (DNA), and metabolic energy. Each cell is a *nuclear-powered* cottage industry, that no human technology has even come close to matching in energy production efficiency. Many cells have the capacity of transmutation (eg: changing one element to another - ie: silicon to calcium - although science has yet to explain how), as well as other highly specialized functions. Remember, a cell is at the physiological basis of each living organism, therefore of life itself.

Cells and the Chalice-Bridging Metaphor:
         IF we consider that each living cell (certainly every chakra or energy center) is a living bridge, by which the Father aspect of God has joined with the Mother aspect of God... And if the aggregate of such cells/chakras provides for the human embodiment of Spirit into the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, and physical) which compose the "Body-Mind"... And if each human thus forms a chalice for the balancing and integrating of Humanity with the Divine - individually and communally... And then if we contemplate what thoughts, feelings, actions, etc would make this bridging connection stronger ...
         ...THEN the Chakra as Bridge metaphor might work for understanding so many other transliterations or bridgings of any two points on a continuum, conceptually speaking (ie: yin/yang, light/dark, male/female, form/formless)." I consider the HEART CHAKRA as the "bridging" chakra or chalice-chakra, between the lower and upper chakras.
         What would make this bridging connection stronger; what would open further the cell's doors to the Divine ?

Other perspectives relating healing, bio-physiology, and psychology to Spirit
          are provided in"Soul Synthesis, Part II" section at the Chalice Art Integration page. This leads up to and covers "Body-Memory" from a spiritual growth perspective.
          And these at the page, "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" or "Bridging Prayer & Science": "Cells & Healing Changes: ...Building, Cleansing, and Paradigm Management ...Body-Parenting & Healing Cell-Talk" [Rev'd Apr'11], "'Getting Super': Sample Personalized Visualization Prayer Chart" [New Apr'11], "DNA, Proportion & Function, and a Summary on Energy & Healing" [New May'11].

About the evolvement of mankind...

* What would it require for all people to have conscious empathic capacity and still discern the highest priorities for their own daily tasks?
* E.G.: What might be some of the key steps along the route from here to then?
* And what if that were in contribution to a "Divine Plan" that included a requirement for progress towards self-realization as well as group cohesion?
* Is it true that honoring Individual integrity and acknowledging the inter-connectedness of humanity are mutually dependent activities?


Now to step in the direction of practical awareness at work...

THE WORK ETHIC and the Body Mind:
©Chris Pringer, May'99

        Work is what happens when one would rather be doing something else.
No matter what you're doing, at that point it becomes work, right?
(eg: When I enjoy "the work" so much as I often do, it just feels strange to call it work)
But where would that put "the work ethic" ?   
I mean, which "should" be more rewarded - working more with less motivation,
or working less with more motivation ?   Which would/should be more rewarding ?
And ... if every work that happened was essential
to the overall purpose of all and it was realized as such,
and If there was no work that was associated
with the making of someone less than someone else (less worthy of love and respect) ,
how much more enjoyable then would every kind of work be?
And would we, as individuals, then find it easier to know
just exactly what work it was that we enjoyed the most?
Is there any relationship between such questions and stress or muscle health?
Is this a
      a) trick question,   b) rhetorical question,   or   c) essay question   ?   <grin>




And to Flow with traffic ...
