Guest blog post by Jim McCormick, Zero Balancing Faculty.
Part of my passion has been to let more people know of the possibilities of Zero Balancing as a personal growth and transformational tool.
One term for this process is self-actualisation. Self-actualisation is a term originally introduced by Kurt Goldstein in the 1930s and 40s, and followed up later by many others, particularly in humanistic psychology by Abraham Maslow. In Goldstein’s view self-actualisation is the “tendency to actualise one’s self as fully as possible, and is the basic human drive.”
Maslow said there are a hierarchy of needs in life and that self-actualisation represents the growth of an individual toward fulfilling the highest needs in that hierarchy: “creative self-growth, finding meaning in life and being.” His belief was that “finding your core-nature that is unique to you is one of the main goals of life.”
The fruits of self-actualisation include knowing and understanding one’s self, being able to be in the moment, a feeling of joy and peace and a sense of well-being that doesn’t depend on what happens in the outer world. A self-actualised person is often involved in the quest for spiritual enlightenment, the pursuit of knowledge, and the desire to give to and/or positively transform society are other examples of goals of self-actualisation.
To me, self-actualisation is the best route to a successful, satisfying, and rich life. The deep meaning in life comes from being able to listen your core self, “letting the spirits lead the parade” where you feel you are in harmony with both your true inner nature and with the surrounding world.
There are many paths to self-actualisation including meditation, psychotherapy, self-reflection and prayer to name a few. If people have heard of Zero Balancing (ZB) at all they tend to think of it as beneficial for relaxation and certain physical complaints. This would put ZB in the category of massage, chiropractic or physical therapy. What is much less widely known to the general public is that Zero Balancing is one of those tools which is also beneficial for self-actualisation.
Zero Balancing has several advantages over other means of getting to self-actualisation:
All of this is to say that Zero Balancing is a wonderful therapy that deserves to be more known and more used. It feels wonderful; it helps a myriad of problems; and it frees and unifies the body/mind and spirit in a way that permits and encourages self-actualisation.
Jim McCormick practices Zero Balancing and Five Element Acupuncture at Cambridge Health Associates in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Come and join us on 24th November to learn about Zero Balancing - the clothes-on holistic bodywork therapy - at Santosa Yoga Studio, 21 Albert Street, Edinburgh, EH7 5LH.
This event will provide you with an opportunity to feel what it's like to receive a Zero Balancing session. You will also learn more about Zero Balancing - its origins, some theory and the benefits of receiving Zero Balancing.
Have you ever wanted to know what Zero Balancing is? What makes it so different? How does it help those in pain? Can it help me even though I don't have any physical ailments? Whatever questions you may have, your hosts - James and Louise - will do their best to provide you with a clear answer.
There will be both a morning session and an afternoon session. The format is the same for both, so come to whichever one suits you best.
Morning session starts at 10:30 and we'll aim to finish by 12:00 at the latest. Thereafter you'll be given the choice of receiving a sample Zero Balancing session there and then, or you can take a voucher and arrange to have one at a later date.
The afternoon session is scheduled to start at 14:30 and finish around 16:00. Again, those in attendance will be given the choice of receiving a sample Zero Balancing session afterward, or - as above - you can take a voucher and arrange to have one at a later date, at a time more convenient to you.
The cost of attending will be £20 per person, or £15 for concessions (students, unemployed and 65+). Payment in advance by BACS.
