    1. THE ART AND SCIENCE OF HEALING C. C. Nuckols cnuckols@elitecorp.org

    2. Dr. David Hawkins “Without compassion little of significance is ever accomplished in human endeavor. We may generalize to the greater social context from individual therapies, wherein the patient cannot be truly cured or fundamentally healed until he invokes the power of compassion both for himself and others. At that point the healed may become a healer.” Power vs. Force, pg 57

    3. OVERVIEW • INTRODUCTION • THE LIGHT • THE TRUTH • THE EGO (SMALL self) AND THE SELF • THE PATHS • THE TOOLS • SECONDARY GAINS • THE LESSONS • SPIRITUAL FIRST AID

    4. INTRODUCTION • How privileged we are to understand so well the divine paradox that strength rises from weakness, that humiliation goes before resurrection; that pain is not only the price but the very touchstone of spiritual rebirth. Knowing it's full worth and purpose, we can no longer fear adversity, we have found prosperity where there was poverty, peace and joy have sprung out of the very midst of chaos. Great indeed, our blessings!  Bill Wilson

    5. Letter to Bill From Carl Jung • Dear Mr. WilsonYour letter has been very welcome indeed.I had no news from Roland H. anymore and often wondered what has been his fate. Our conversation which he has adequately reported to you had an aspect of which he did not know. The reason that I could not tell him everything was that those days I had to be exceedingly careful of what I said. I had found out that I was misunderstood in every possible way. Thus I was very careful when I talked to Roland H. But what I really thought about was the result of many experiences with men of his kind.His craving for alcohol was the equivalent, on a low level, of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholeness, expressed in medieval language: the union with God.*

    6. Letter to Bill From Carl Jung • How could one formulate such an insight in a language that is not misunderstood in our days?The only right and legitimate way to such an experience is that it happens to you in reality and it can only happen to you when you walk on a path which leads you to higher understanding. You might be led to that goal by an act of grace or through a personal and honest contact with friends, or through a higher education of the mind beyond the confines of mere rationalism. I see from your letter that Roland H. has chosen the second way, which was, under the circumstances, obviously the best one.I am strongly convinced that the evil principle prevailing in this world leads the unrecognized spiritual need into perdition, if it is not counteracted either by real religious insight or by the protective wall of human community. An ordinary man, not protected by an action from above and isolated in society, cannot resist the power of evil, which is called very aptly the Devil. But the use of such words arouses so many mistakes that one can only keep aloof from them as much as possible.

    7. Letter to Bill From Carl Jung • These are the reasons why I could not give a full and sufficient explanation to Roland H., but I am risking it with you because I conclude from your very decent and honest letter that you have acquired a point of view above the misleading platitudes one usually hears about alcoholism.You see, "alcohol" in Latin is "spiritus" and you use the same word for the highest religious experience as well as for the most depraving poison. The helpful formula therefore is: spiritus contra spiritum.Thanking you again for your kind letterI remainYours sincerelyC. G. Jung

    8. ST MATTHEW 8:14 • “O HOW NARROW IS THE DOOR AND HOW DIFFICULT IS THE ROAD WHICH LEADS TO LIFE, AND FEW ARE THOSE WHO ARE FOUND ON IT.”

    9. ST LUKE 18:21 • KINGDOM OF GOD “NEITHER WILL THEY SAY, BEHOLD, IT IS THERE! OR, BEHOLD, IT IS THERE! FOR BEHOLD, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU.”

    10. VOICE OF GOD • THE VOICE OF GOD IS INFINITE SILENCE • INFINTE SILENCE IS THE SOURCE OF ALL THAT EXISTS • BECOME AWARE OF THE SILENCE BY REALIZING IT IS THERE • STAYING AWARE OF THE SILENCE IS “CENTERING”

    11. ORIGINS OF ADDICTIONS AND EMOTIONAL SICKNESS (SUFFERING) • BELIEF THAT OUR PERSONALITY IS THE ESSENCE OF WHO WE ARE • BELIEF THAT HAPPINESS IS OUTSIDE THE SELF • INABILITY TO STAY CONSCIOUSLY IN THE MOMENT • PERSONAL AND MATERIAL ATTACHMENTS

    12. ORIGINS OF ADDICTIONS AND EMOTIONAL SICKNESS (SUFFERING) • Think of the physical , biological brain as a large computer (hardware) • Throughout life (especially early life) this computer is programmed with software • Software (mind or Ego) consists of all of opinions, motives and positionalities that one possesses • Each time you remove a software program you get closer to TRUTH (SELF)

    13. BELIEFTHAT OUR PERSONALITY IS THE ESSENCE OF WHO WE ARE • Notion of Original Sin creates idea that some original mistake causes later suffering • Sense of guilt or of being wounded • Victim/Perpetrator • Victim/Survivor • Have done something wrong in the past and now must suffer/be punished for it • Guilt is one of the chief teaching techniques • Try not to make mistakes to prove not bad • Buddhism-problems are impermanent and seen as opportunities

    14. BELIEF THAT OUR PERSONALITY IS THE ESSENCE OF WHO WE ARE • HINDUISM (ADVAITA VEDANTA) • ONLY ONE REAL THING IN THE UNIVERSE • ALL ELSE IS ILLUSION (“MAYA”) • ATMAN=SOUL=SELF • BRAHMAN=GOD • ATMAN=BRAHMAN • THE ESSENCE OF SELF IS GOD (IMMANENT) • ESSENCE IS THE GIFT OF LIFE ENERGY

    15. SPIRITUAL GROWTH AND HEALING • The more one is in touch with SELF • The more SELF can constellate SELF in others • THIS RECONTEXUALIZES PATIENT’S REALITY SO THEY EXPERIENCE HEALING ON A LEVEL THAT TRANSCENDS THE EGO (Source of all Suffering) • THE COMPASSION OF THE PRESENCE (SELF) ALLOWS FOR THE FEELING OF LOVE PRODUCING PEACE WITHIN AND REMOVING INNER AGONY

    16. BELIEF THAT HAPPINESS IS OUTSIDE THE SELF • TWO PROMISES OF THE EGO • “Ego’s products are valuable because they have meaning” • “Content is necessary for survival and IT WILL BRING HAPPINESS” • SEEKS HAPPINESS OUTSIDE OF SELF • HAPPINESS IS A PART OF ONE’S ESSENCE-IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE

    17. INABILITY TO STAY CONSCIOUSLY IN THE MOMENT THE CONCEPT OF TIME PAST PRESENT FUTURE GUILT FEAR

    18. INABILITY TO STAY CONSCIOUSLY IN THE MOMENT • THE FARTHER AWAY ONE IS FROM THE MOMENT THE MORE THE SUFFERING • FEAR (ANXIETY) IS GENERALLY ABOUT THE FUTURE • GUILT AND SHAME (DEPRESSION) IS GENERALLY ABOUT THE PAST

    19. PERSONAL AND MATERIAL ATTACHMENTS • BUDDHISM-ALL SUFFERING IS DUE TO ATTACHMENTS AND IGNORANCE • ATTACHMENTS TO… • PEOPLE • THINGS (FOOD, DRUGS, WORK) ALCOHOL/DRUGS WORK

    20. THE LIGHT • IN THE BEGINNING… • QUANTUM (NON-LINEAR) PHYSICS • PERSONAL • LEFT AND RIGHT BRAIN • DUALITY AND NON DUALITY • Adam/Eve • GOD AS IMMANENT, OMNIPRESENT AND TRANSCENDENT

    21. THE ZERO POINT FIELD • “HUMAN BEINGS AND ALL LIVING THINGS ARE A COALESCENCE OF ENERGY IN A FIELD OF ENERGY CONNECTED TO EVERY OTHER THING IN THE WORLD. THIS PULSATING ENERGY FIELD IS THE CENTRAL ENGINE OF OUR BEING AND OUR CONSCIOUSNESS, THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA OF OUR EXISTENCE.” McTAGGART, “THE FIELD”, PROLOGUE, pg xxiii

    22. THE ZERO POINT FIELD • THE FIELD IS OUR HEART, OUR BRAIN, OUR MEMORY AND MUST BE TAPPED INTO TO HEAL • “IT IS THE ONLY REALITY.” EINSTEIN • NEWTON, DESCARTES AND SCIENCE CANNOT EXPLAIN SUBJECTIVITY-THE REALM OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND SPIRITULITY • WRONG PARADIGM

    23. THE ZERO POINT FIELD • PIONEERS OF QUANTUM PHYSICS TURNED TO PHILOSOPHY AND SPIRITUALITY TO EXPLAIN WHAT THEY HAD FOUND • PAULI- ARCHTYPES AND THE QABBALAH • BOHR- TAO AND CHINESE PHILOSOPHY • SCHRODINGER- HINDU PHILOSOPHY • HEISENBERG- PLATONIC THEORY OF ANCIENT GREECE

    24. THE ZERO POINT FIELD • THEY HAD DISCOVERED THAT OUR INVOLVEMENT WITH MATTER WAS CRITICAL • SUBATOMIC PARTICLES EXISTED IN ALL POSSIBLE STATES UNTIL OBSERVED BY US • LIVING THINGS ARE PACKAGES OF QUANTUM ENERGY CONSTANTLY EXCHANGING INFORMATION WITH THE FIELD • COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS • HOLY SPIRIT • LIFE FORCE

    25. CHAOS THEORY • Vast world of connectedness in both visible and invisible domains • Based on discovery of inherent organized patterns (attractors) • Edward Lorenz (1960) plotted temperature, air pressure and wind direction • “Lorenz’s Butterfly” (first attractor pattern)

    26. LAW OF SENSITIVE DEPENDENCE ON INITIAL CONDITIONS • Every subtle change effects everything else • Every event connected to every other event. • A small change at the start can have a large impact at the end.

    27. HEISENBERG UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE • You can either know a particles position or momentum, but not both • Any attempt to observe (measure) the electron alters it • There is no such ting as an independent observer (objectivity) • Intention influences outcome

    28. JOHN VON NEUMANN FORMULA • The effect on a physical world by the intention of a human observer • Action of the conscious observer will lead to one of two possible feedback responses • Yes-collapse of wave form • Not yes

    29. HOLOGRAPHIC Paradigm • David Bohm- A hologram represents both a visible (“unfolded” or explicate order) reality and an invisible (“enfolded” or implicate order) reality • Every point contains the whole • The appearance of the hologram changes based on the viewpoint of the observer • Implies an unseen realm that governs the observable world

    30. William Blake, Auguries of Innocence To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wildflower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour

    31. “IT IS A FACT OF NEUROSCIENCE THAT EVERYTHING WE EXPERIENCE IS ACTUALLY A FIGMENT OF OUR IMAGINATION. Although our sensations feel accurate and truthful, they do not necessarily reproduce the physical reality of the outside world. Of course, many experiences in daily life reflect the physical stimuli that enter the brain.

    32. But the same neural machinery that interprets actual sensory inputs is also responsible for our dreams, delusions and failings of memory. In other words, the real and the imagined share a physical source in the brain. SO TAKE A LESSON FROM SOCRATES: ‘ALL I KNOW IS THAT I KNOW NOTHING’.” MACKNIK AND MARTINEZ-CONDE, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN MIND, OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2008, PG 20.

    33. LEFT/RIGHT BRAINJILL BOLTE-TAYLOR • Right Hemisphere-Parallel Processor • Left Hemisphere-Serial Processor • Communicate through the Corpus Collosum • 300 million axonal fibers • Each hemisphere thinks differently and care about different things

    34. RIGHT HEMISPHERE • The Present Moment-Right here and now • Thinks in pictures and symbols • Receives sensory information that allows us to understand what the moment feels like, smells like and tastes like • Sensory collage • Connects to the energy all around us • We are energy beings connected to everything through the consciousness of our right hemisphere

    35. LEFT HEMISPHERE • Linear and methodical • All about the past and the future • Takes the collage of the present moment and categorizes and organizes the informational details • It then associates this information with what we have learned from the past and projects it into the future

    36. LEFT HEMISPHERE • Thinks in language • It is the ongoing chatter in the brain • It is calculating intelligence (survival and gain) • It says, “I am” • This separates us from everything else • The “Experiencer” • Ego • Animal brain heritage

    37. LEFT/RIGHT BRAIN • If disconnected from the brain chatter that connects us to the outer world the mind is silent • Lose the complications of the past and future and become overwhelmed by the peacefulness of the moment • The more time we spend in the inner circuitry of our right hemisphere the more peace we project into the world

    38. LEFT/RIGHT BRAIN • LEFT HEMISPHERE • CONSCIOUS • SERIAL • INFORMATION PROCESSING • RIGHT HEMISPHERE • UNCONSCIOUS • NONVERBAL • EMOTIONAL PROCESSING

    39. RIGHT HEMISPHERE • EARLY DEVELOPMENTAL UNCONSCIOUS • EMOTIONAL “SELF” • 80-90% IS UNCONSCIOUS • THE ABOVE DRIVES OR MOTIVATES HUMAN EMOTION • HUMAN EMOTION IS THE DRIVING FORCE BEHING COGNITION AND BEHAVIOR • EMOTION IS MEDIUM IN WHICH PRIMARY INTERPERSONAL INFORMATION IS TRANSMITTED

    40. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • RECOGNITION AND EXPRESSION OF EMOTION • NONVERBAL EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION • RH TO RH AFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION EQUALS THE RELATIONAL UNCONSCIOUS • UNCONSCIOUS RH IMPLICIT SELF CONTINUOUSLY APPRAISES LIFE EXPERIENCES AND RESPONDS ACCORDING TO ITS SCHEME OF INTERPRETATION

    41. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • ONE UNCONSCIOUS MIND COMMUNICATES WITH ANOTHER UNCONSCIOUS MIND • RH RESPONDS QUICKLY TO ALL STIMULI • IMPLICIT LEVEL OF THE THERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE (BENEATH THE EXPLICIT COGNITIONS AND LANGUAGE) ARE THE CORE OF THE CHANGE MECHANISM AT THE UNCONSCIOUS LEVEL

    42. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) LEFT HEMISPHERE RIGHT HEMISPHERE LANGUAGE IMAGES LIMBIC SYSTEM MOTIVATION & EMOTION BRAIN STEM ANS, AROUSAL & PAIN

    43. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • INVOLVES CO-CREATION OF AN INTERSUBJECTIVE CONTEXT THAT FACILITATES THE PROCESS OF CHANGE (ATTACHMENT COMMUNICATION) • ATTACHMENT COMMUNICATION REPRESENTS RH TO RH TRANSACTION THAT FACILITATE THE EXPERIENCE DEPENDENT MATURATION OF RH

    44. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • EMOTIONAL AVAILABLILITY OF CAREGIVER IN INTIMACY SEEMS TO BE THE CENTRAL GROWTH PROMOTING FACTOR IN EARLY REARING EXPERIENCE • CAREGIVER MAXIMIZES POSITIVE AFFECT AND MINIMIZES NEGATIVE AFFECT • PROMOTES INCREASED TOLERANCE FOR POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE AFFECT (AFFECTIVE RANGE)

    45. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • THE BROADER THE RANGE OF EMOTIONS THAT A CHILD EXPERIENCES THE BROADER WILL BE THE EMOTIONAL RANGE OF THE SELF THAT DEVELOPES • THERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE • THERAPIST’S FACILITATING BEHAVIORS COMBINE WITH THE PATIENTS CAPACITY FOR ATTACHMENT TO PERMIT DEVELOPMENT OF ALLIANCE (PRIMARY COMPONENT OF EMOTIONAL BOND)

    46. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • THERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE (CONTINUED) • KEY IS HOW TO BE SUBJECTIVELY WITH PATIENT ESPECIALLY DURING AFFECTIVELY STRESSFULL MOMENTS • UNCONSCIOUS INTERSUBJECTIVE PROCESSES INCLUDE EMPATHY, IDENTIFICATION WITH OTHERS AND SELF-AWARENESS • FACIAL EXPRESSIONS CAN BE APPRAISED BY THE RH WITHIN 30 MILLISECONDS • MAY TAKE HOURS TO DAYS TO GET INTENSE REACTION BACK TO BASE LINE

    47. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • MUST BE ATTENTIVE TO LH PATIENT VERBALIZATIONS IN ORDER TO OBJECTIVELY DIAGNOSE AND UNDERSTAND PATIENTS DYSREGULATED SYMPTOMS • BUT ALSO ATTENTIVE INTERSUBJECTIVELY TO RELATIONAL TRANSACTIONS (REFLECT EMOTIONS SUCH AS APPROVAL/DISAPPROVAL, SUPPORT, HUMOR AND FEAR) • FACIAL EXPRESSIONS • BODY POSTURE • TONE AND TEMPO OF VOICE

    48. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • RIGHT SIDE OF FACE (LH)-SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS CONTENT, SOCIALLY APPROPRIATE CLUES • LEFT SIDE OF FACE (RH)-HIDDEN PERSONALIZED FEELINGS, IMPLICIT UNCONSCIOUS CONTENT • IN HEIGHTENED AFFECTIVE MOMENT THE EMPATHIC THERAPIST’S RH CAN REGULATE PATIENTS DYSREGULATED RH

    49. RIGHT HEMISPHERE (RH) • CARL ROGERS (1986) “AS A THERAPIST, I FIND THAT WHEN I AM CLOSEST TO MY INNER, INSTINCTIVE SELF, WHEN I AM SOMEHOW IN TOUCH WITH THE UNKNOWN IN ME, WHEN PERHAPS I AM IN A SLIGHTLY ALTERED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE RELATIONSHIP, THEN WHATEVER I DO SEEMS FULL OF HEALING.”
