Engaging the Science of Vitalism in Practice and Life: Embodying the Biology of Belief (Lipton, Rockwell, Sitton Jun 1-2)
At the heart of vitalism, lies the ability to change one’s life by changing one’s beliefs and perceptions. In collaboration with Dr. Bruce Lipton, the best selling author of The Biology of Belief, Drs. Jeff Rockwell and Omri Sitton have recognized that this process can be fortified and made easier by ensuring that our patients’ nervous systems are capable of experiencing safety both in their environment and within themselves. Drs. Rockwell and Sitton will be teaching seminar attendees the exciting news about the recently discovered third branch of the autonomic nervous system – the social nervous system – and how to activate it for healthier and happier living. They have developed easy to learn and fun-to-do neuro-activities and exercises for your patients (and *you*) that will boost the function of this extremely important aspect of one’s health. In addition, they have developed, and will be teaching in this seminar, how to distinguish whether your patients are “stuck“ in sympathetic or parasympathetic defense modes and how to perform gentle nerve mobilizations to bring a person back to a more vital and socially engaged state. If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of patients’ adjustments not holding, or wonder why their subluxations continue to return, this practical, hands-on portion of the Embodying The Biology of Belief seminar is just what you’ve been looking for. Join Dr Bruce Lipton –and his two special guests, on June 1-2 for a weekend learning experience that can change your patients’ lives.
By the end of the seminar, participants will better be able to:
- describe leading edge research that reveals how perception of environmental signals controls behavior and gene expression - the science of epigenetics.
- describe how quantum mechanical energy fields, including thought, interact with cellular proteins to control life.
- describe how membrane protein perception complexes translate Innate Intelligence into biological behavior. These signal-translating proteins represent the fundamental “building” blocks of human consciousness.
- become aware that prenatal and perinatal experiences provide for programmed perceptions, the basic physiology and behavior-controlling units of awareness that comprise the Educated Mind.
- describe the elements of the new biology that provide a scientific foundation for Palmer’s Chiropractic Philosophy.
- understand the basic fractal geometry of Nature and how its iterated patterns mirror human patterns.
- have a better understanding of the new model of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), derived from new research on the Polyvagal Theory;
- understand how their ANS’s “range of motion” may be restricted and how to get back to their original orienting system. Participants will know how to retrain their autonomic nervous system in order to dwell, orient to and engage life from a place of connection, play, love and intimacy with themselves and with others.
- have the ability to practice mindfulness somatic activities, and reference the research behind the science, to shift their autonomic states from defense to growth.
- learn the relationship between skin and brain, and how to help change or modulate old, outdated nervous system patterns through a specific type of touch.
- appreciate the power of metaphor in how we shape our beliefs and our ability to perceive. Participants will also learn to distinguish between metaphors that help and those that hinder the brain’s task of helping us grow and change through feeling safe, rather than threatened.
- be inspired to take these embodied experiences “from their chairs to their practices and their lives” – to change their beliefs and feel more empowered as the creators of their own lives!
