At last the documentary from this phenomenal conference this spring :) Ibogaine is a derivative of the unique and powerful healing plant iboga, "one of the only medications that orally stimulate the production of Glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), a hormone that helps stimulate the growth of new neutrons in the brain" Jonathan Dickinson More about this and much more in this video.
Dana Beal explains how ibogaine rebuilds the brain, the creation of an 'aha' moment in doing this and also in the treatment of Parkinson's. Also much more, Dana Beal is a long time campaigner in this field.
"It’s a hurtful kind of comfort that the dominant culture. is in some kind of beginning stage of terminal swoon...it's hard to tell the difference between that and dancing going on... there’s no turning back from it...all that we need of you is that you be human... what has to die is your refusal to die..you're not supposed to feel punishment you're supposed to feel more...that's the invitation"
A trip to the town where I grew up, Nottingham, to see my parents, I took time to visit Eastwood the birthplace of D H Lawrence. D H Lawrence was an inspirational writer of reflections on humanity, born 1885 and grew up in Eastwood, near Nottingham, travelled to and lived in France, Italy and Mexico.
And watch it putting forth each time to heaven,
Each time straight to heaven,
With marvellous naked assurance each single twig,
Each one setting off straight to the sky
As if it were the leader, the main-stem, the forerunner,
Intent to hold the candle of the sun upon its socket-tip,
Every young twig
No sooner issued sideways from the thigh of his predecessor
Than off he starts without a qualm
To hold the one and only lighted candle of the sun in his
He casually gives birth to another young bud from his thigh,
Which at once sets off to be the one and only,
And hold the lighted candle of the sun.

Peter Grunwald has discovered that certain areas of brain, eyes and the rest of the visual system correspond to specific areas in the human body. He has developed effective techniques to release patterns which underlies myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and other visual dysfunctions together with postural dysfunctions causing back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches and breathing disorders. http://www.eyebody.com/
