Humans as biological organisms consume, store, and use energy as a natural process of living. The mind and nervous system coordinate the functions and activities of the body, and are wired by genes and by our experiences to survive and navigate the world. How much power do we have to control and direct the mind and body? If the unconscious mind manages most of our reality, what are some ways we can engage consciously with those systems to recondition one’s own patterns of thoughts and actions? What are some techniques for harnessing and coordinating our immanent “life power” for optimal personal, relational and communal outcomes? What are the consequences of not gaining self-development, self-awareness and personal power, and how does that play out in social and political levels? This talk will delve into the sometimes-mystical-seeming powers of human beings to engage successfully and meaningfully with the world.
