Free Webinars

Healthy Horizons Symposium is pleased to announce a free webinar series. In this series of webinars, we will be exploring topics related to the theme of the symposium — Building Bridges between Classical Chinese Medicine, Biofield Science, and Consciousness. We look forward to some thought-provoking conversations.

Dynamic and Anatomic Considerations in the Human Body: Interstitium, Complexity, and Connection

In this talk, two independent, but related topics, will be introduced in order to refine contemporary concepts of human anatomy and self-organization across all scales of material existence. The first is the newest concept of the human interstitium as comprising fluid channels coursing through all connective tissues of the body allowing for electrical, molecular, and cellular trafficking throughout. These concepts will enhance how we understand bodywide communication networks that may align with cross-cultural concepts of health and healing, such as the mechanisms of acupuncture. Then, basic principles of complexity theory will be described, including concepts of self-organization, emergence, the complementarity of perspective-dependent scales of observation, how the nature of the body’s boundaries are flexible and scale-dependent, and that the body is a functional holarchy rather than a hierarchy. All of these views will be used to further elaborate on the nature of biofields.

Making Sense of Bioelectricity

Recorded March 26, 2024

A stimulating webinar exploring the relationship between modern research on bioelectricity and traditional concepts such as qi, prana, and subtle bodies. Todd Luger, the cochair of the Healthy Horizons Symposium, moderated a discussion between Prana Gogia, John Hubacher, and the healthy seminars community. The webinar began with a short video of Dr. Michael Levin on his groundbreaking research into the bioelectrical code of the human body. Prana Gogia and John Hubacher then shared their insights into how various metaphysical traditions might make sense of this research and what it portends for the future.
