I specialise in the theory and practices of spiritual systems. The idea that ‘the spirit’ comprises a discreet and subtle structure of energy and consciousness within the human energy complex, suggests that ‘the spirit’ is present in all human beings as an energetic structure, and as a state of consciousness. This theory reinforces a contemporary presentation of spirituality as a unifying characteristic of our species, with culturally specific expressions, rather than a divisive aspect. This theory also suggests that through strategic practices we can develop this layer of our consciousness.
