3. MAGAZINES

ENLIGHTENMENT MAGAZINE: 10th Anniversary Issue Celebrating Radical Spiritual Inquiry founded by Andrew Cohen

This issue includes articles by the always stimulating and frequently controversial Ken Wilber: “Authentic spirituality is revolutionary. It does not legitimate the world, it breaks the world: it does not console the world, it shatters it. And it does not render the self content, it renders it undone”,

and also by the always stimulating and frequently controversial Rupert Sheldrake. “Are we the smartest beings in the universe?’ ...if the galaxy has a life and consciousness, then it would be a consciousness far greater than our own ..there are forms of consciousness above human consciousness...one thinks of a divine consciousness embracing all things...I think we’d have to think of the consciousness of the sun as not embedded just within the sun but as something that extends through the solar system..if there is a consciousness of the sun...it might be something we can interact with...the creative process in evolution is a mystery”

There is also a fascinating article by Dr. Amit Goswami, a physicist who says that consciousness is the ground of being rather than material reality being the ground of being and that once we understand that, many perplexing problems in physics and the material world can be better understood.

POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY CONFERENCE

Last month I had the opportunity to both attend and present a poster session at the 3rd Positive Psychology Conference in Washington D.C sponsored by the Gallup organization in their Washington Headquarters
and hosted by Martin Seligman, Ph.D and Ed Diener, Ph.D.. Some of the more exciting and intriguing presentations included Positive Psychology and Social Renewal by David Myers; The Neurobiology of Positive Emotion and Positive Affective Style by Richard Davision; Mature Defenses by George Valliant; Tragic Optimism by Paul Wong: The Good Life in Different Cultures by Hazel Markus; Spiritual Well-Being by James Catanzaro; The VIA (Virtues in Action) Classification of Strengths by Christopher Peterson
and Achieving a Balanced Time Perspective as a Life Goal by Philip Zimbardo the President Elect of the American Psychological Association.

My presentation entitled “INTEGRATIVE HEALING: INTEGRATING NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY used extensive graphs, some of which can now be seen on my web site at:

http://www.integrativehelp.com/healing_techniques.html#graphs

and also showed my Integrative Meta-Model which can be seen at:

http://www.integrativehelp.com/meta_model.html

The presentation demonstrated how clients can learn to make powerful integrative shifts in stress levels, well-being, life satisfaction, cognitive balance and affective balance over a 13 week period from a negative to a positive state with most of the gains occurring during the first 6-8 weeks.

The GRAPHS in the presentation also showed that people having high scores on the Friedman Well-Being Scale Composite

(see http://www.integrativehelp.com/books_tapes.html)

also had high scores on measures of hope (Snyder), optimism (Carver), personal wholeness and personal empowerment (Friedman). The graphs did not show but implied that high levels of well-being, hope, optimism, cognitive-affective balance, life satisfaction, personal wholeness and personal empowerment exist within each person as their natural state.

24 VIA (VIRTUES IN ACTION) STRENGTHS

Since the conference I have worked extensively with the 24 VIA Strengths scale (see http://www.integrativehelp.com/coaching.html#strengths for 12 of the descriptions of these scales) in my clinical population and have made some interesting preliminary discoveries regarding the relationship between
these 24 Strengths and measures of well-being, happiness and life satisfaction.

Here is a brief list of the 24 VIA (VIRTUES IN ACTION) STRENGTHS currently being studied:

1) curiosity
2) love of learning
3) judgment and open-mindedness
4) creativity
5) social intelligence
6) perspective (wisdom)
7) valor
8) industry and perseverance
9) integrity and honesty
10) vitality (zest and enthusiasm
11) kindness
12) love
13) citizenship and teamwork
14) fairness and justice
15) leadership
16) modesty
17) self-regulation
18) prudence and caution
19) forgiveness
20) appreciation of beauty
21) gratitude
22) hope and optimism
23) spirituality and sense of purpose
24) playfulness and humor

Underlying these 5 strengths/virtues are said to be the 5 C’s
Competence--------------competence/cognitive virtues
Confidence---------------emotional virtues
Connection---------------relational virtues
Contribution-------------civic virtues
Character----------------personal virtues

with the possibility that the first 4 are the underlying core dimensions and that Character underlies them all.

COPING WITH LIFE’S CHALLENGES, BLOCKS, BARRIERS AND OBSTACLES

Life’s obstacles may provide an opportunity to learn lessons from the universe and from your soul. They then become signals, sometimes in disguise, for personal/spiritual growth and development. When we discover this, we realize that obstacles, barriers, blocks etc, are not only challenges but also blessings, gifts and opportunities to be grateful for. This means we can learn to shift our perspective, our consciousness with practice, and also honor our challenges, blocks, barriers and obstacles.

1. If obstacle after obstacle occurs on the path to your goal, the universe may be setting up roadblocks because it is trying to tell you that you are not pursuing your true path and you need to reexamine your priorities. One possible solution is to surrender to this signal from the universe or your soul
and wait and see if the universe provides you with another opportunity to pursue something more aligned with your true path and highest life purpose.
Surrender, contemplation, listening within and openness become primary virtues here.

2. Sometimes the obstacle/barrier is telling you that you are just too attached to the outcome of the goal and that you need to release this attachment and let the outcome/result unfold more harmoniously. This way you can still pursue the goal but by releasing the attachment to the result you will experience more peace of mind and be open to new possibilities should they present themselves. Or the goal may eventually be obtained, but with less struggle and according to the pace of the divine plan not your ‘ego’s plan.

3. It is also possible that the outer resistance/block that you are encountering reflects an inner resistance, an inner struggle or inner block that is being reflected in an outer experience or event. In this case you need to examine and then resolve the inner struggle/barrier/ block first, and the outer result will then manifest itself either as you first conceived it or transformed in some way after the inner resolution. Often, for example, you will need to forgive yourself regarding some situation/experience first or shift your attitudes, beliefs and perceptions in some significant way.

4. Another possibility is that the universe is telling you that you need to strengthen your determination/resolve before the obstacle barrier can/will be removed. In other words, the universe is trying to make you stronger more resilient, more resourceful and a more persistent person. It may also be teaching you to practice patience, flexibility, courage, gratitude, forgiveness,
assertiveness, resourcefulness etc..

Through contemplation, meditation, openness, listening within, journaling, reading and dialogue with others, and with practice and patience, you can learn to discover which of the above possibilities exist in your life or perhaps there is a 5th one that will open up new possibilities for you.

WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS

If you would like to co-sponsor a 2 or 3 day workshop
on INTEGRATIVE HEALING: FACILITATING HEALING SHIFTS IN CONSCIOUSNESS, PERCEPTIONS, BELIEFS, ENERGY AND BEHAVIOR
email me at integrativehelp@home.com
or email integrativehelp@aol.com or call 610-828-4674.

This workshop will focus on the power of INTEGRATIVE HEALING SHIFTS that utilize client strengths to catalyze change. During the workshop I will demonstrate and teach 6 of my
POWERFUL HEALING TECHNIQUES including:

ACT (renamed the ACTIVE CHOICE TECHNIQUE);
MATT (renamed the MIRACLE ACTIVATION TRIGGER TECHNIQUE); TASTE (renamed the TRIGGER AND SOFT TOUCH TECHNIQUE); HEART (HEALING AND RELEASE TECHNIQUE);
the FORGIVENESS PROCESS and
LIGHT (LIGHT IMAGERY GRATEFUL HEART TECHNIQUE).

See my website at:

http://www.integrativehelp.com/healing_techniques.html

for descriptions of MATT; ACT; TASTE; HEART, the FORGIVENESS PROCESS AND LIGHT.

The workshop will also compare these techniques with other well known and related techniques in the field. (see my website on healing techniques).
The workshop will also allow participants to learn about the 24 CORE STRENGTHS described by the field of POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY. The workshop will also teach participants how to empirically track change in their clients using the Friedman Scales and how to use that information therapeutically to catalyze and enhance change. In addition you will be able to demonstrate outcomes to organizations and agencies that may value your work more from seeing these specific results.

In this workshop you will also learn about my INTEGRATIVE META-MODEL.

This workshop will be both didactic and experiential and will offer APA-CE
credits for psychologists. CEU credits may be available for other professions as well.
