The Spiritual Mind — The Conscious Mind

Medical Science and Spiritual Science Together

As a practicing physician in psychiatry, addiction medicine, research and metaphysics I have been working to reunite our spiritual science with our medical science. That avocation has taken me on an inner journey of many experiences through study and direct spiritual training as well as a journey half way round the world in pursuit of this work.

I continue to study with my wife in practical and deeper spiritual training and exercises. We have had many experiences that have deepened our relationship and improved our ability to live life purposefully, master fears, and heal many of the bruises of life we had along the way.

Applying medical knowledge of brain function to the task of maintaining cognitive functioning faculties during deep meditation was essential in our success. It takes more than just guided meditation for one to access higher states of consciousness. There are new sensory modalities and ways of communication that are necessary to make the most of the experience when accessing the spiritual mind. If our consciousness is non-local, existing well beyond the physical borders of the body and mind, then we must improve our functioning while in consciousness to heighten the awareness of its non-local existence. Therein lays the access to the more pure aspects of consciousness, the spiritual mind. So we embark on this journey by exercising our perception skills with this meditation training for accessing higher levels of consciousness.

Spiritual and Consious MindWe generally are not aware of this transcendent aspect of our consciousness. It is the interface to our spiritual inner awareness. The exercises on the first track of this deep meditation CD takes you to deep relaxation at theta level while keeping the right and left brain engaged in the process. The exercises then work to deepen awareness and comfort with the inner consciousness modalities of communication—image and emotion. The stronger we can make these modalities, the better the exploration and task accomplishment at this deeper level of consciousness. The other tracks allow you to practice free-form at this level of mind. We also use alternating tones to help entrain the brain with the subtle third sound.

This CD in the Successful Living Series will be launched at the SSF-IIIHS conference in our workshop on enhancing meditation skills.

The SSF-IIIHS International Conference Presentation

Research has shown that we have a consciousness that expands beyond the awareness of our sensory perception system, bodily functions and cognitive executive processing. It is not confined to the local area of body-mind unit.

We’ll be talking more about that research and other findings at the upcoming SSF-IIIHS International Conference, co-sponsored by the International Institute of Integral Human Sciences and the Spiritual Science Fellowship of Canada. We are excited to present some of the scientific research and our personal research into this fascinating aspect of our innate human ability.

We will also be releasing our newest guided meditation download and CD: The Spiritual Mind–The Conscious Mind, Medical Science and Spiritual Science Together. We look forward to seeing you,
July 2 – 11, 2010, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
