In this course, we will investigate the concept of the holographic/holotropic/holo-informational universe. This will include a discussion of our tendency to separate, categorize, divide and disconnect the things we focus on, despite the holographic nature of things. From the holographic point of view, there is no difference between you and anything else in the room you are sitting in right now. It is simply perception, and what you perceive depends entirely on where you put your focus. What you focus on becomes real and important to you. What you don’t focus on, you don’t see, or it is just not important. This summarizes our experience of life. In this course, we take an in-depth look at this pattern. In doing so, we will investigate the gaps in our experience of the hologram as a way of broadening our understanding of life, the soul and the brain. From this expanded awareness, we will see that every “truth” in life is truly relative and that there is no such thing as a “right” or “wrong” teaching. All teachings are simply part of one big hologram that is used in different ways with different emphasis.
The course will address the three brains (head, heart and gut) as focusing tools within the big holographic picture. There will be an exploration into the most recent science regarding each of the brains. Our focus will be to look at the interplay and the filters affecting the interaction of the three brains and deepening our understanding of the roles of each of the brains, which have been long understood in ancient cultures. We will also look at brain function as permeating every part in the body and not as something that can be distinctly isolated. At this stage, we have confused the functions of the three different brains because undue emphasis has been put on the brain in the head and, in more recent years, the heart. In doing so, the whole mechanism of the three brain complex has been greatly compromised.
We will take a detailed look at the concepts of the soul, reincarnation and life after death, taking some of the mystery out of these ideas. Once again, the focus is not on right or wrong perspectives, but how the viewpoints of various traditions reflect uniquely in the experiences of different groups. There isn’t a distinct truth regarding the soul, but rather cultural trends and perspectives. These trends will reveal themselves in different near-death experiences. The soul will then be explored in terms of its functional role, including the physics of the soul. We will also look at issues that can happen related to the soul, for example being born without a soul and soul damage that can happen during life.
Ultimately, the course will explore different teachings and viewpoints on life from around the world, examining their commonalities and distinctions. All viewpoints in life are valid in relationship to their etiology. However, they are also all relative—relative to what people want and understand. Ultimately, this course is about looking at life through a bigger lens to see that there is no right or wrong in any approach because of the world’s holographic character.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the attributes and functions of each of the three brains from various religious teachings, cultural traditions, and scientific approaches.
- Understand the stress and dysfunction that occurs when the head brain is emphasized as the most important brain.
- Utilize techniques on both self and others that balance and strengthen the three brains.
- Explain the concept of the soul as described from different traditions and viewpoints.
- Describe the functional role of the soul, as well as the physics of the soul.
- Utilize techniques to resolve conflicts between the bodymind complex and the needs or agenda of the soul.
- Explain the difference between the astral body, the mental body and the soul.
- Understand the energy matrices that manifest as ghosts and poltergeists and how to treat them when indicated.
- Grasp the concept of possession and various soul-related problems and the dangers around them.
- Recognize that there are significant gaps in each person's understanding of life; the more we become aware of the gaps, the more we are able to shift away from relative truths to universal truths.
- Apply the understandings gained in this course into sessions with clients.
- Apply the understandings gained in this course into daily living.
