 I CHING:  The Book of Changes

I Ching is considered to be the Oldest Oracle & Book of Conduct on Earth. It is at least 1500 years older than Confucius, who added commentaries to the lines of the sixty-four hexagrams of the I Ching. It is used to predict events, but more often as a way to promote self-development and to contact one’s Higher Self. Situations or observed moments, usually created by the toss of three coins or yarrow stalks, define one of sixty-four elemental states of being represented by the hexagrams. Through interpretation, the querant knows both the question and route intended for him or her.

 Interfaith Ministry     

Interfaith Ministry is a new universal and all-inclusive approach toward religion in today's world. Interfaith Ministers are ordained and licensed. Their services are fully legal and legitimate.

The religious and spiritual teachings of several diverse traditions are drawn upon in the creation of worship services and ceremonies, i.e., weddings, funerals, baby namings, memorial services, etc. Spiritual counseling and guidance is an important component in the Interfaith Ministry.

This approach may appeal to those who are non-religious yet deeply spiritual, those who would like to incorporate a more universal approach with the practices of the religion of their birth, and those who are in relationships or marriages with people of different religions.

Iridology is the analysis of the iris of the eye, which reveals pertinent information about the condition of the body. Acting as an early warning system, Iridology can indicate genetic and functional weaknesses, tissue and organ condition, areas of nutritional depletion and need, areas of inflammation and toxicity, and the general body constitution. This information is acquired by “reading” the fiber and markings of the iris, which (to the well trained eye of the Iridologist) is indicative of specific body areas and the corresponding conditions.

 Jin shin do    

JIN SHIN DO BODYMIND ACUPRESSURE—“The Way of Compassionate Spirit” is a complete and gentle approach to body work that is a synthesis of traditional ancient acupuncture principles, Taoist philosophy and Western psychological thinking.

  Jin Shin Do offers a view of the individual in which chronic patterns of body tension or armoring are linked to attitudinal states. Gentle but concentrated finger pressure is used to relieve tension or blockage along energetic pathways or meridian to help establish a more harmonious, smooth flow. In its most basic form, Jin Shin Do is easy to learn by both health care professionals and lay persons alike.

There are many Journaling methods, but perhaps the best known is that created by the noted Jungian psychologist, Ira Progroff. Called the Intensive Journal, it helps one gain new perspectives, clarity and insights on one’s life as a whole. One learns an effective method to break free from self-defeating patterns and to ease situations of stress and conflict.

The writing draws on one’s intuitive powers and becomes a psychological tool for re-focusing one’s life and making decisions about future steps. The Journal process is evocative rather than analytical and judgmental, and frequently assists one in the writing of a spiritual biography.

 Kabbalah & Meditation    

Kabbalah emerged as a distinct mystical movement within Judaism in medieval Europe. 
The Hebrew word kabbalah means literally “that which has been received,” and Kabbalistic wisdom is thought by some to be the original divine revelation. Kabbalah also refers to the state of receptivity that enables one to encounter the divine in the present moment.

The Kabbalistic “Tree of Life” transmits divine grace upon our world and also provides a safe structure for ascension to the divine realms. The Kabbalist yearns for the experience of direct contact with the divine and the recovery of cosmic consciousness without renouncing the world. According to Kabbalah every human action here on earth affects the divine realm, and it is up to us to actualize divine potential in the world. Kabbalah is a symbolic interpretation of the inner life of the creator that reveals the mysteries of creation and illuminates our own divine nature.

   Traditionally, kinesiology had been the study of movement.  With the advent of Applied Kinesiology (AK) in 1964 by Dr. George Goodheart, chiropractor, kinesiology would never be the same.  It has developed into a leading branch of natural, conservative health care practiced primarily by doctors of chiropractic.
     There have been many techniques developed using kinesiology over the last 30 years.  Treatment may incorporate nutrition, herbs, soft tissue manipulation, meridian/acupoint therapy, cranial work, lymphatic stimulation, chiropractic adjustments, and many other noninvasive techniques.
