Don't Look Down - Can you see the Integral in Urban Free Climbing? Pt1

Channel 4 Slammed Over Dont Look Down DocumentaryI was fascinated last week to watch the Channel 4 programme Don't Look Down, about urban free climber James Kingston last Sunday. Fascinated not like so many because of the danger aspect to it or because of how irresponsible those in the programme were being for doing what they have (and will continue to do) such as reported in Metro News or Cambridge News. But as I sat there, all I could see, was the understanding that has come from the last few years of studying Integral Theory and the work of David Deida. I felt great compassion for James and the others and had a real urge to want to talk to them about what I know and compare it to their experience of the hanging and free climbing they engage in.

Are we avoiding the dark emotions of the heart? Pt 2 The Chakra Perspective

Are we avoiding the dark emotions of the heart? Pt 2 The Chakra Perspective

In the first post in this series I suggested that we (as Kinesiologists) have been avoiding the dark emotions of the heart, that we have been 'watering down' the more detrimental energies of the heart meridian. Replacing them instead with less substantial emotional ideas or simply suggesting that the negative emotions are simply 'lack of' concepts such as joylessness. This second post will continue that theme by looking at the heart from the perspective of Chakra energy which is also used a concept a great deal in kinesiology, but has suffered the same fate.
