Arising from an ancestral lineage of Celtic warriors, Michael Phoenix is the youngest of 6 brothers. A family with a heritage of deep involvement with both spiritual and military institutions. His life has been a playground of pushing the boundaries of modern culture's comfort zone. Though he's registered as an independent voter, he believes modern politics is obsolete. Regardless of having grown up Catholic, he's found spiritual validity in all religious philosophies, including science, and atheism. He purposely strives to be an enigma in other people's consciousness. A chameleon to social settings, he has an ability to adapt and flow with change while bearing a distinct presence in all situations. And here, now, he knows you are seeking deep in yourself to uproot the false notions that have been placed in your consciousness. Why else would you be on this site?
When the ecosystem of various environments in a human body is brought to an internal symmetry of expression, it is said that integration has occurred in an individual.
In a sense, implementing a practice of body awareness, as articulated in The Theory of Body Integration, an individual is performing a type of spiritual surgery. The success of the surgery depends on an individual’s capacity for emotional intelligence.
In simple terms, emotional energy gets stuck in the body and turns into all sorts of different pains and ailments. And, for things like proprioception, deep breathing, slow breathing, negative flexion, etc. to be effective, it requires emotional intelligence.
The reality is, you care about your health. I have yet to meet an individual that does not in some way care about their health. Regardless of the specific habits that possess us with judgment for not staying true to our value of health, we still care.
The theory of body integration is a way to shift paradigms to begin implementing a process of integrating health into your way of life.
