Introducing HUMANUAL®

(A Manual for Being Human)

“The expanded Self” is described as both your greatest potential and your birthright. As the term implies, we need not be limited in our vision, actions, dreams, and spirit when our body’s design and the mind’s reach offer us myriad ways to be an active and significant part of the world we see, experience, and create.

“Each of us has an everyday self that we assume our self to be. But what if there is more to you than meets the eye? What if there is an expanded version of you that includes not only the habitual patterns, the lost parts, and the innate organization but also a connection to the grand, scintillating space of the universe and the possibilities it offers us?”

Understanding the cohesion and synchronization that connect the body, mind, and spirit can lead to an expanded version of yourself. Humanual offers specific guidance about how the musculoskeletal, nervous, and respiratory systems function. The book clearly outlines our evolutionary development of physicality and movement patterns, going on to explain personal adaptive patterns and character traits. The nervous system and effects of trauma are discussed in detail, as are natural human responses to danger as well as social connection. An extensive chapter on how the body is designed to function reveals many commonly accepted “myths” to be inaccurate. Exercises for a healthy, well-functioning body and meditations for a mind at ease are presented in a simple, easy-to-follow format.

Humanual not only illustrates ideal function of the human body, it gives concrete instruction on how to facilitate a change in habitual responses, helping you to break the binding patterns that repeat physical, mental, and emotional responses based on past experience, instead of meeting each moment in a fresh way. The book is both instructional and inspirational—it is useful in daily life for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of how the body, mind, and spirit are unified to work together. Anyone can use the exercises in this book for personal exploration and growth. You will learn:

  • How to become aware of habitual thought and movement patterns that prevent you from embodying your full sense of Self in body, mind, and spirit.
  • How to breathe to full capacity, with maximum efficiency and minimal effort, according to our inherent design, which fully oxygenates your system to feel more awake and alive in the present moment.
  • How to cope with and resolve overwhelming experiences, and handle stress that can hinder enjoyment of a rich, positive experience of life.
  • How to awaken your inherent potential by finding the support from the ground that can lead to full stature and expansion, while noting how trauma and overwhelm can interfere with this process.

Please join us on this epic journey to your expanded Self.
