The Phases of Ortho-Bionomy (Simple)

There are four Phases of Ortho-Bionomy:


Phase 1: It doesn't exist (an impossibility)


Phase 2: It doesn't exist (an impossibility


Phase 3: It doesn't exist (an impossibility)


Phase 4: Focus on the somatic aspect of the body. Positional release


Phase 5: It becomes transpersonal; Introduce "not doing"


Phase 6: "Aura work." Greater depth of intimacy without contact. 


Phase 7: Distance healing. Everything is connected.


The Phases as Levels of Intimacy


This accounting is oversimplified but a student is likely to go through the training program with some similar simple understanding.


Phase 4 was initially taught as the place to begin, as "basic" so that, today, is called basic. Begin learning Ortho-Bionomy with a Phase 4 class. Then there was an "advanced" class where one would learn to use Phase 5 and Phase 6. Phase 7 was taught by invitation only. Phase 7 itself would indicate who might be invited. Self-delusion came into play here.


The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

I am I and my circumstance;

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.


The Story Teller

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics,  clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.

      —JEANETTE WINTERSON                Gut Symmetries

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                      ROBERT MCCALL



Yes, there is beauty

There is love

There is joy.

All you who suffer from

the world's miseries

Defend them.
