Human Beings are a Dynamic Process of Fascia, Consciousness, Empathy and Healing

Carol M. Davis - Friday 20th May

Fasciategrity supports a constant dynamic flow of information within us throughout the liquid crystal fascial matrix. Conscious awareness is made possible by way of interception from nerves embedded within the fascia of body and brain. A specific form of attention to the consciousness of interpersonal interaction facilitates the experience of empathy as a crossing over of awareness between people, paving the way for the possibility of a unique form an inner knowing of the other as described by phenomenologist Edith Stein. A resonance similar to this in manual therapists with their patients has been shown to calm the interoceptive nervous system, perhaps facilitating a lowering of sympathetic tone and assisting intracellular vibrational balance and ease.
