    • Body-Mind-Spirit Science in Action: A "Levitation" Experiment

      Similar to the childhood slumber party game of "light as a feather - stiff as a board" this exercise shows that the human body is capable of much more than we anticipate, if we only put our bodies, minds, and spirits together. Four women attempt to lift a fifth woman using only their fingers. On their first attempt, they function as separate individuals without linking the power of body-mind-spirit science. After a short exercise in BODY posture, MINDful intention, and focused SPIRIT breath, they are able to lift the fifth woman with ease. When you put your BODY into position, focus your MIND, and breathe a deep SPIRIT breath, magic happens.

    • Basic Science

      In order to understand Body-Mind-Spirit integration as a science, we must go back to the basics of grade school science. Don't worry, you don't need to memorize anything from the periodic table of elements or balance any complex chemical equations. We just need to remember some core fundamentals about science such as: What is MATTER? What is the STRUCTURE of an ATOM? How do two or more ATOMS combine to make a MOLECULE? In order to remember these simple concepts we will explore the atom that is arguably the most important element of the human body, OXYGEN.

  • Body - Biology
    • The Vitruvian Man

      Leonardo DaVinci's famous drawing of the Vitruvian Man is based on the work of an architect named Vitruvius who determined the ideal proportions of the human form. This lesson describes the concept of the Vitruvian Man as the ideal posture and body mechanics of the human form.

    • Body Biology

      Think of your human body as complex machines with various systems and parts that work together. Unfortunately, our human bodies did not come with a user-manual, and formal education doesn't really teach us the finer points of how to use your body to its best efficiency and proficiency. This lesson describes in simple terms how your bones, muscles, blood and breath work together to make everything function. In knowing how these systems work, you can then discover the power of healthy posture and simple body mechanics and movement to keep your body working its best.

This lesson teaches you how your body and brain communicate with each other through your nervous system to both catalog and process information of your life and use it in every future experience.
