Philosophy and Comments        

Polarity Therapy is a natural health care system. It asserts that energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature, and that the flow and balance of this energy in the human body is the underlying foundation of health. The practitioner uses her hands as positive and negative poles to affect the movement of energy through stagnant blocks in the body, thereby returning the natural flow.

Zero Balancing is a body handling system developed by Fritz Smith, MD, which focuses on the interface between body energy and body structure. It is a form of structural acupressure in which the hands are used to create a fulcrum (or still point) around which energy and structure can balance and dysfunction can normalize.

Zero Balancing focuses on the skeletal system of the body because the deepest, strongest currents of energy are conducted by bone, the densest tissue in the body. One of the principles of Zero Balancing is that if we put a clearer, stronger force field through a body part, the currents and vibrations of that part will release any "held tension patterns" and become more organized and balanced. The integration often occurs on a subliminal level and eases emotional trauma without the reliving of the trauma. This is particularly valuable on the level of the cellular memory of the body and in cases where physical injury occurred at the time of high emotional stress.

Rev. Plum is convinced that good health and well-being can often be maintained outside of the traditional doctor's office. "People are becoming more responsible for their own health," she says. "Instead of taking a pill for everything that is wrong, people are trying to understand the laws of nature and work with them. We are energy beings. Our physical body is the result of energy patterns. When you correct the disharmony in the energy body, the result is seen in the physical body. However, alternate healing methods do not exclude standard medical care. All must be used."

Journey to Becoming        

This is a study guide for your spiritual journey. The book contains a step-by-step program for developing your own awareness. The techniques are ones which have been used for decades by students on the Path and which I personally used in groups for over 20 years. They combine ancient wisdom as well as modern knowledge. Each chapter contains an outline for one whole group meeting and each meeting builds on the prior one so you gradually and safely develop your gifts. This book is unique in that it contains 35 methods of developing one's spiritual gifts in an easy, step-by-step manner. In the Appendix are 25 Exhibits to photocopy as handouts for each of the meetings. There is also a glossary of terms, for a total of 252 pages.

The book is intended as a teacher's guide for spiritual development groups. There are 12 basic chapters and 12 advanced chapters. It is standard paper size and spiral bound so it will lay flat to enable ease of photocopying the exhibits.

It is written simply and clearly enough so that anyone can pick up the book and start their own group. Gather your friends and neighbors to begin the Jouney To Becoming together. You can even take turns being 'teacher' because each person has something unique to share and you learn best by teaching. Many Blessings on your Path! $35
