OR ELSE:   You may suffer the consequences of the mind-blowing

Besides, learning is eternal - EG: it can't all be done in 5 minutes. I know, it's difficult... just keep repeating, "MORE endorphins, LESS adrenaline, there really IS ground under my feet..."

ON THE OTHER HAND:   One of my first mandalas was entitled "Synthesis". I can't say that wearing a "Synthesis" shirt will cure this groundless state -of begging for extreme circumstances just so you can locate the center of the universe - but who knows! laughing You can always find out for yourself via the Web Page for "Synthesis" Shirts from Chalice Productions - centering yourself between mandalas silkscreened on both sides of a shirt!   smile

Core  Principles  of  Yoga   &   the  Body-Mind  Interface
    A  Class  Outline    
Questions to begin with:
    «»   What is currently taught - relative to traditional yoga instruction - in the average yoga courses in the US?
    «»   Who is teaching classes that cover the following elements AND principles ?
           EG: Referring to those, most of which have little to do with asanas or physical positioning of body parts,
                 those more in depth as correlated below in columns 1-3, put in context in column 4.
           As for who, I know there are at least a few such teachers in the US, besides myself, that is, and besides just on line.

Below are listed Considerations in Approach, arranged in an allegory, relative to a an automobile (Column 4 assists context):
Relative to a Car or Vehicle:

    «»   Vehicle Core: (Driver of the car)

    «»   Vehicle Frame: (car frame)

    «»   Vehicle Direction (path/route & destination)









FOOTNOTES:
      NOT related to yoga per say, but IF you like, there are some correlations drawn between various aspects of vehicle travel, particularly in the management of fuel, polution, cargo & baggage, in a comparison of the car and combustion engine to the human - as driven or fueled by various emotions (in "Emotion, Fuel, & 'the Vehicle'..." on another web page at this site.)
Relative to Physical Health:

   «»   V. Core: *Intrinsic muscles (Fine-motor movement, in both *core & *extremities)
   «»   V. Frame: *Extrinsic muscles (Large movement, in both *core & *extremities)
   «»   V. Direction: Physical health, short & long-term plan


FOOTNOTES:
  * Intrinsic Muscles: facilitate fine-motor movements
  * Extrinsic Muscles: facilitate coarse, larger movements
  * Core Muscles: those of Torso, Inner & Outer
  * Extremities Muscles: those of Legs-feet, Arms-hand, Neck-head
  * Asanas do direct or focus the attention on specific body parts, for specific and general enhancements, but with varying degrees of benefit, especially long term, depending on aspects as covered in column 4, as well as those covered in "Notes on Basic Focus" [a section further below], which are still quite rudimentary relative to traditional yoga instruction.
Relative to Body-Mind Health:

   «»   V. Core: Wholistic understanding of yoga relative to body-mind health
   «»   V. Frame: Internal organs, psycho-neuro-endocrine & subtle energy systems
   «»   V. Direction: In/for Life, short & long-term goals, purpose, how to individualize that relative to one's body-mind health, considering current age, chronic conditions, prognosis, beliefs about health & aging, etc.

FOOTNOTES:
      IE: As regards the muscles: awareness building for a kinesthetic-to-cognitive understanding of *Tension Range,* *Work/Rest Ratio,* releasing of muscle-holding & movement patterns (ie: neuro-muscular re-setting proprioceptors, or instruction for achieving the equivalent), Etc (Elaboration). Instructors who can tell by muscle texture if this is occuring.
      How & why yoga works wholistically, the implications of that; equivalent mind- body understanding of (or at least about) nutritional health, emotional health, etc.
Elements Relative to Principles, Body-Mind & Health

    «»     CORE ELEMENTS: Those Noted in Columns 1-3
    «»     CORE PRINCIPLES: Those relative to both essential physiology & the "Body-Mind" (mental, emotional, physical, subtle bodies, including the spiritual if/as one may), that is, the "infrastructure" underlying the regard for and maintenance of the *Elements, being relative to the core aspects of yoga - *multi-level* as noted and holistically considered. Many of these principles may be introduced via the "V. Core" of column 3.
         The point being, most current yoga classes in the US (in "the West") may be great for starters, for learning to steer and manage the acceleration and braking, signs on the road, etc, good for practice in a parking lot - if there are not too many other cars in the lot. But for many individuals (ostensibly beyond the allegorical 'Driver's Education course'), such yoga classes may lead [the average individual, ignorant of these principles and/or unwilling to exercise the necessary study or discipline, yet kept in class] to exacerbate & quicken problems in the extremities as well as in the core - in the physical core, that is, and possibly in the energetic core.
         Which troubles could be prevented with an increased, even if not thorough, understanding of the CORE ELEMENTS as a whole, and even better when the CORE PRINCIPLES (as the infrastructure of the Elements) are also understood, putting all the above in the most practical context.

How and Why this Site Is Different:
A study in Cross-Discipline Approach, Knowledge Sharing and Utilization?
What's Special & Different
In General:

You might say this site specializes in "Filling in the blanks", covering *What you Don't Find Elsewhere* the SUBTLE aspects with HUGE implications (like if you call DNA "subtle"), or What's RARELY if ever covered in the more popular media, as well as the professional media related to body-mind-spirit integration or psychology, while covering or referencing as necessary the basics, more general topics, and points, and *emphesising* as appropriate among them, without undue redundancy or "preaching to the choir".

How is the Chalice Art Related?

The basis of my healing work is the basis of my artwork. Is what I love about the chalice - it's not just a cup, not even "just" a "holy grail" - it represents so much more (and always has, IMO) than what the legend (or what's left of it) has implied, or even what any religion has ever said it was about. In reality, so much meaning and purpose can be derived from it when it is studied in depth. To me, it is the ideal ecumenical symbol with critical implications for the potential of human evolution. AND it's relationship to our (and all other) DNA - and the sacred geometry that connects the two (and all else) ...As Above, So Below! (see "Love & ..." further below :-)

How, Why, or Where-from,
came "Special Topics:"

The focus here is developed from A certain intricate blending of Buddhist, Gestalt, and New Thought Psychologies (with a body-centered innovation on Transactional Analysis), developed in light of each one's assets in regarding the human condition, as well as each one's particular insensitivities to same. That includes an integration of perspectives with special focus on "PRAGMATIC IDEALISM" at a number of pages at this site for our getting BEYOND what seems to be an impending "Doom & Gloom" scenario orientation. I believe that "The test" we've created (so to speak) IS the vehicle for our doing that - whether one believes that we've created that "vehicle" or that it's been handed to us.

    It's not necessarily because I've been studying the nature of intelligence, the enhanced development of balanced analytical & intuitive thinking - especially through clearing emotion-based shacklings, or because I have plans to present (via the web) a compendium of findings, research references, and considerations. 
 
   
It's more because I believe that just about everyone has special capacities in certain areas of intellect or life or knowing. And I hope this site attracts others who are open to believing the same. Because the successful accomplishment of the more adventurous goals of this site depends on a great increase in cross-discipline knowledge sharing. The challenges are elaborated in "Re-Inventing Discovery" by Michael Neilson, as well as some ideas for resolving. It seems appropriate to add here a link to the assembled writing, "The Goal Chart - The Achievement of Goals, Attainment and the Role of Inner-Work (A Flow-Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation and...)" 
 
   
My own special capacities, at least as regards the intellect, are apparently in areas of pattern recognition and analysis, trends (groups of patterns related by group affinity and activity), "object permanence" (as related to limitations on how an object or situation may be seen/employed), and extrapolation of trends, as well as related metaphor and analogy, into or onto diverse or similar realms of knowledge, study, activity. Which lends to cross-discipline application of principle into the modification or creation of technique and methodology. 
 
   
The above sentences could be developed into any number of paragraphs for explanation but, for now, I will hope that the context of this introduction, and of this site, will serve sufficiently for any clarification needed.
What's this got to do with Body-Mind Integration?
Fascia Memory?
PolyPsyArts?
Cross-discipline study
& sharing?
 
 
If you put all the above (or at left) together with an innate desire to know how things work and how they can be improved (technically as well as psycho-socially), then the answer to those questions is "Everything." My saying that I'm an "INFJ" (personality or learning type) might only convince a psychologist that my focus works easily in this way, even kinesthetically (ie: having 'the hands' that clients say I have). 
 
Convincing YOU of all that 'might' be easy, depending on your interest, willingness to explore, and capacity to understand one or more of the examples listed At Right. 
 
Perhaps you'll find that *Chalice-Bridging* is more than about cross-discipline integration, something both more broad and deep (?). And that thread is continued below... while more on bridging is at right.  -- cp, 7'08, 9'11
         Examples of pattern recognition and analysis, extrapolation of trends, cross-discipline application of principle toward creation of technique and methodology (at this site): 
 
   
    ChBullet The Fascia Memory Project pages come from taking the "Wrinkles in the Saran Wrap" metaphor, the basics of radar detection technology, and pro-prioceptor/nerve signal science, and developing "A Theory of Multi-System Bio-Energetic Communications at the Connective Tissue Level" and (mechanical) systems for reading "Sensor Field Arrays." See above for Project goals in context with Body-Mind Integration core aspects. 
 
   
    ChBullet The Poly-Psy-Arts pages were developed by comparing certain tendencies in personal psychology with those in current society, and (via charts and discussion) projects onto society various potential poly-psy (psycho-social and psycho-political) scenarios and tangible outcomes, depending on how those challenges are handled. 
 
   
    ChBullet The "Re-Opening Bridges & Firing the Cauldrons" page tells how I've taken certain principles of alternative health care and created a multi-level approach and methodology. "Understanding The Pattern Triad" came from the projection of similar principles, but develops a rough typology and methodology for "body-mind assessment." Includes "Triangle/Triad Interface" Chart 
 
   
    ChBullet The "Evolution Trends" essay utilizes all the above referred-to skills as well as the projection of optimal cross-discipline knowledge sharing and utilization, challenged somewhat with poly-psy trends. The extrapolation for this writing -into the overall time-line of human evolution- was guided by of a 5000 year old human growth typology.






Diversity, Coexistence, & the Gestalt Puzzle by Chris Pringer 4'15
As (also) relates to essay, "Gestalt Psychology as compared to Buddhist Psychology"







Love & the Bridge

    I've often taken the 'Love' aspect for granted in most of my writings and artwork, assuming most people knew where I was coming from. But I've been realizing that some just need it spelled out to feel safe with you. Afterall, Love has been defined -in practice- by some pretty interesting actions.

    And yes, different people are reached in different ways. Some need it very gently, others very tough, and others... well, how do you spell *PRESENCE* in any given moment, which is always changing, yet... ? So, yes... we all need Love, and too often we need it badly.

*Individuality <--> Universality* as Divine complements, yet the makings of such paradoxes and conundrums [more on that in the column at right]...

    The PolyPsyArts pages are intended for Love's application of, by, and for citizens who want the best for everyone. That is, for whom such approach serves. But then, so are the other pages, as there are many pages of variations on the theme of bridging hearts and minds, perhaps even heaven & earth, at ChaliceBridge.Com.

    Also, such perspectives and resources might not be presented in such an integrated fashion (and some not at all) at other sites. Continuation of these efforts may depend greatly upon personal donations or contributions. If you feel so led, I would very much appreciate your visiting the Web Site Support System Page (which suggests a number of non-monetary options as well). Thanks for reading this! [- 9/22/11]

Love & the Grail

    I would like to suggest your considering the bodily energy centers (including the Heart Chakra) as power transformers of divine energy for human use, then considering those energy vortexes forming chalices. You might visualize the meeting of ascending & descending energy vortexes, as well as the horizontal extension of vortexes crossing left & right (into the plane of matter, on to/as "the cross" of our existence). Given that, this chalice would be a bridge between the Higher Powers and one self.

    Thus taken as a metaphor, if one relates the grail quest to a search for perceived lost capacities in that bridge... The implications of the "Holy Grail" story and character roles, purpose and meaning, all changes somewhat from the popular version, and would then relate to courage, love, and spirituality, philosophy, and even politics in a much more useful way.

    Now, if you will, consider the history of western religion - the dramatic changes of the 1st thousand years BC, and thence to more recent events. IE: The aspect of *balance* with regard to *extremism*, individually, communally, and Love's place in all that.

   The "bridging" function strengthens the connectivity, thereby the effective context, of each point within the optimal working whole (of Humanity, in this case), from one end to the other along any continuum of complements. That's also one way of describing the basis of Gestalt Psychology, by the way.

    But those are only a few of the metaphors that extend from the chalice archetype and grail-related history, which are detailed at the "Chalice Integration Arts & Sciences" page. Where I also have the bio for how this art developed, related notes on sacred geometry, and more.

Chalice, Flower & Tree Of Life, & V&H Vortices Over World v3TXT2
Sir Ken Robinson on the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things:
          "... We know three things about intelligence. One, it's diverse. We think about the world in all the ways that we experience it. We think visually, we think in sound, we think kinesthetically. We think in abstract terms, we think in movement. Secondly, intelligence is dynamic. If you look at the interactions of a human brain, as we heard yesterday from a number of presentations, intelligence is wonderfully interactive. The brain isn't divided into compartments. In fact, creativity -- which I define as the process of having original ideas that have value -- more often than not comes about through the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things.
..."

Can We Heal Hopelessness Through Sharing?

Robin Temple (excerpted from Facebook):
          "Our disconnect is near complete...though Mother Earth keeps calling. We cover our ears and accept defeat, wailing that the sky is falling..while species die or fade away..we multiply and overstay..and never learn that we have to pay...see no evil, hear no evil, speak none too. You'll still be here when the bill comes due...your children will curse you for what you knew..their inheritance a scrambled planetary Stew."

My response:
          Thank you, Robin. And yes, (I believe) we can always just keep reincarnating and eventually start all over again on a new planet. But where's the challenge in that - AND where's the compassion, what will we have learned?
          What healing practitioners learn is that lasting change happens at the core of being, then works out from there... the opposite kind of change brought about by force is peripheral and creates it's own opposing force in that it seeks to change. The question is, how much short-term change can we produce, to reverse the acute hemorrhaging without working against ourselves. What kind of teaching can we provide that leads others to change their ways of perceiving -and thence their actions- in the world? These aren't new questions - they are ancient, but (as they say) 'just sayin'.
