Layer 1: Inputs: The Hidden Dimensions of Sensory Perception Conclusi


Considering space as vital to sensory health, its quality becomes important to well-being, this leads to examine the role of the environment on a child’s sensory experience as it shapes the positive or negative nature of that energy.

Spiritual Healing Modalities


Spiritual Healing Modalities As we discussed in chapter 2 and 3, quantum scientists are slowly demonstrating that energy drives the universe (Pagels, 2012)[i]. It is a puzzling element, although it can be measured and quantified, but scientists have no real idea of what it actually is. Yet, physics find that energy is the most fundamental … Continue reading
