Health through Consciousness
The health giving effect of a daily meditative body scan, called in some traditions the inward smile meditation, has been known for centuries. This meditative exercise will play a core role in this imaginative exploration of the embryology, physiology and esoteric symbolism of the major systems and organs of the human body. The lecture themes will trace the path of the blood from the marrow of the limb bones through the various life organs and ultimately into the head. The evolution of the organs and systems will be presented from the point of view of both physiology and the symbolic or alchemical perspective.
Topics include: old Saturn as a model for embryogenesis; the fall of man and the role of the senses; the polarity of blood and nerve; the four life organs; the blood tablet; digestion and soul processes; soul breathing; glands and the life body; anatomy and evolution of the brain; the system of the chakras; and the fundamental issues of healing.
