Why Holistic

Holism is a term that has fallen in and out of favour at different times in its history. For traditional cultures it was so intrinsically understood to be part of the process that it was not emphasised. This is in contrast to the modern scientific reductionist approach where holism has attracted resistance, while becoming popular in the New Age movement. This popularity has also brought the term into disrepute through over and indiscriminate use.

“I think the over-use in popular culture can be seen as a searching for something. It is this something that I am interested in. Is it possible that the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times, supports a return to wholeness? I think so.” 

Christina Nielsen — Founder, Metavision Institute.

David Bohm, the Nobel Prize winning physicist in his book Wholeness and the Implicate Order (1980) wrote:

“…fragmentation is now very wide spread not only throughout society, but also in each individual; and this is leading to a kind of general confusion of mind, which creates an endless series of problems and interferes with our clarity of perception so seriously as to prevent us from being able to solve most of them.”

David Bohm

This was in 1980! The problems arising from fragmentation and confusion of mind have only gotten worse; just take a look at the current mental health statistics from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It is only through using a holistic approach that the problems can begin to be addressed, not only in mental health but in many aspects of society, culture and the environment.

Unbornness and the Human Encounter

When meeting a person what/who is it that you encounter? You may notice the age, appearance, cultural background, the work the person does, the relationship status, the feeling emanating from the person, how that person feels about him/her self or something else?

The African saying of Ubuntu says, ‘I am I because of you, and you are you because of me”, suggests that we are intimately connected in some way that is more than the appearance, cultural background and roles the person fills.

Recently I met a 4-month-old baby securely held in his father’s arms. He was awake and alert. His thick dark hair stuck up at the back of his head. As he looked at me our eyes met. I looked into two pools of presence, of contained interest and a deep knowing of something hard to grasp and impossible not to notice. It was as though he had knowledge of something that he carried within him. His gaze penetrated me. It was as though he saw me deeply. I wondered what he was really seeing. Does he see an aura with colours and shapes or is it something else? It felt like he was seeing my essence from a place I had forgotten. I felt touched by the world within those eyes and can easily remember that feeling as I think back to our brief encounter. It was as though I was reminded of a depth, a connection with a world I know but had turned away from. Where has he come from?

To have a relationship to your symptoms is empowering.  It enhances the focus of a person's life.  David Bedrick (author of Talking Back to Dr. Phil: Alternatives to Mainstream Psychology) and Dr. Christina Nielsen ( talk through their ideas prior to a September workshop in Sydney
