The Four Agreements ~ The WINNING WARRIOR Program™

Many program offerings billed as "Life Changing”  have been put forth. After having the blessings of working with scores of families, and hundreds of students, for the past 33 years, from kindergarten, elementary grades. junior high school, high school, college, graduate school, law school, medical school, and professional certification and licensing programs, CHANGE has come to mean:

…the expression of one’s ……………….Creative instincts 
…the acceptance of one’  ……………….Heartfelt knowing
…the willingness to face one’s deeper .....Awareness
…the appreciation of the need for ……....Nurturance
…the living and the declaration of ……...Gratitude
…the understanding of the power of …....Exchange 

If we are to operate in the world of BEING we are to understand what is meant by exchange.  How do we satisfy an institution’s requirement, a superior’s implied power, the demands of a work environment, the expectations of particular levels of performance, and be appropriately supportive of our personal perspectives and needs? Such principles of care and support are surprisingly simple. Knowing the difference between need and desire is a significant first step. We are the ultimate creators of our thoughts and perceptions, we are the deciders and the ultimate doers.

The training that indeed becomes ‘Life Changing”, one that calls for moment to moment awareness, one that requires honesty with self, one that accepts the role of cause, and understands effect, one that empowers breath by breath, is the adherence, the living of the Four Agreements and the integration of the Fifth Agreement, the Toltec Wisdom put forth by Don Miguel Ruiz.  Such understanding and practice becomes the ultimate exchange… the exchange of Self with Self… engaging, effective, efficient, energizing. APOGEE Acu-Tone™has integrated these principles and practices in THE WINNING WARRIOR Program. YOU are indeed the CHANGE you choose to BE.

The WINNING WARRIOR Program is based upon the integration of eastern and western principles of growth, development. learning and wellbeing. Whole Brain, Whole Body, Whole Self requires an awareness of what is present, what is needed and what is to be provided.

The WINNING WARRIOR Seven Point Program offers:

1.  The Basis for Health and Vitality
2.  Breath, Power and Focus
3.  Intention, Attention and Perseverance
4.  Exercises - Readiness for Action
5.  Learning an Integrative Approach 
6.  Communication and Creativity
7.  The SELF defined

Integrating the Winning Warrior Program™ with the Five Agreements has proven to be empowering as well as liberating physically, mentally, spiritually. A change in consciousness, a change in perception, a change in the habits of BEING, DOING, HAVING.

APOGEE Acu-Tone™ ~ Solitons and Microtubules

APOGEE Acu-Tone™ - Solitons and Microtubules 
to heal and restore our latent health and corresponding state of presence 

Carl Florin C.Nth

Health,  Impressions and Conscious Experience:

What immediately comes to mind when we hear the word impressions? It is likely to be thought of as a more archaic way of expressing perception. Though today this use of the word appears to have fallen out in favor. When describing one’s role in an active sense we employ it more often in this way, “the speaker’s presentation made a big impression upon me." The word nonetheless retains a more descriptive way of describing perception. Upon closer examination we see the two more implicit meanings: a physical change on the one hand, and a change in  the focus or content of our awareness. At the present time we reserve the word perception for stimuli, which now more readily expresses these qualities.

A moments notice shows how an impression is related to physical imprint or change of structure. By further reflection we can see that a pattern or code in energy was delivered. In any case we know that in the common use of impression something noteworthy or memorable is invariably preceded and comprised of stimuli. Chladini Plates show this effect vividly: A metal plate with fine sand resting on it will  form a distinct geometrical  pattern corresponding to the frequency of sound impinging upon it. We can see directly the core pattern or essence of this vibration immediately revealed. For some this may conjure up notions of platonic forms, eternal static blueprints for every dynamic manifestation of a given eternal pattern. The most amorphous energy invisible to the eye suddenly reveals its essence. We might wonder how does this visible pattern reveal the  sound which has so effected us?

In a previous installment of APOGEE Learning Blog, (APOGEE Learning: Finding Spirit in the Fabric of Space and Time - Microtubules and APOGEE Acu-Tone™ - we explored how the latest science explains the transformation experienced with APOGEE Acu-Tone™. In that summary we learned that Microtubules, components of the cytoskeleton,  are ideally suited for resonating sound.  As if perfectly manufactured tuning forks of the cell, a new expansive way to explain a mode of reception on the micro-level of life has opened up. We can begin to see  how physiological processes of the cell, like the pattern in the sand, are in some sense also being transformed by the stimuli of experience.

Perhaps the most essential meaning that stands out in the word impression is this notion of Transformation. We say we are moved by music but we seldom realize how sound literally inscribes itself upon our being. How does the sound of outside become the sound of our conscious experience? How does any stimuli at all become the sound guiding the activity of our cells?

Solitons and Microtubules : Micro-Organs of Sound and Electricity:

The Soliton model in neuroscience is a very new model that successfully explains how signals are conducted within neurons.  It explains electrical signals moving across the cell's membrane in the form of particular kinds of sound (or density) pulses known as solitons. The soliton model therefore presents a direct challenge to the widely accepted Hodgkin–Huxley model which declares that signals travel as action potentials: voltage-gated ion channels in the membrane open and allow ions to rush into the cell, leading to the opening of other nearby ion channels in this way propagating the signal in a fundamentally electrical manner.

"It is undeniable that an electrical signal can be observed when an action potential propagates along a neuron. The Soliton model explains this as follows: the traveling soliton locally changes density and thickness of the membrane, and since the membrane contains many charged and polar substances, this will result in an electrical effect, akin to piezoelectricity. A Soliton is a density wave that neither changes shape or velocity as it travels therefore, it loses no energy or information." - membrane biophysics group,  Niels Bohr Institute.

What this means is once we percieve, stimuli has been transduced into electrical signals free to travel along nerves. Immediately expressed in the form of sound waves the information of the signal now takes upon a new meaning at a critical level of cell operation. As the signal from outside becomes a nerve signal, this signal as we have learned is further transformed into a complex orchestra of sound pulses at the cell level.  It becomes obvious why this mode of transmission has radical import on all cell functions, cell commands and cell behavoir. This is due to the fact that Cytoskeletal elements interact extensively and intimately with cellular membranes. Soliton Sound pulses in the lipid membrane of cells propogate directly into the cytoskeleton body to alter the cells electrical, structural, metabolic state. It determines the informational state of the cell itself, in that such a signaling  has the power to elicit and activate critical information from nuclear DNA used in repair and even ordinarily non- accessible powers of regeneration. The capacity of the cell to maintain itself depends on communication from nuclear DNA using a very minute percent of available material. This suggests a new and direct availability of the potentials for regenerative healing and conscious states alike.

Today, it is possible to design and transmit signal information to the level of cells to  hitherto unimaginable influence upon the body.  For those readers bold enough to grapple with these ideas and really explore these questions will be granted  entry to some of the most important  revelations. Imagine now, what would happen if a way to transmit sound directly into nerves were possible so as to bypass the electrical level of signal information in the body? Further imagine a way to use sound so as to  link nerve and major processing centers in the body by the same signal? Assembling them instantly to form new circuits that before were completely unavailable? Then you will have an approximate understanding of how APOGEE Acu-Tone™ operates on the physiology to heal and restore our latent health and corresponding state of presence.

APOGEE Learning™ is a revolutionary educational service and integrated treatment modality. APOGEE Acu-Tone™ is a decisively visionary somatic attunement method based on sound. Uniquely deciphering and connecting vital signalling processes in the body, APOGEE Acu-Tone™ reaches an unprecedented grasp over higher regulatory functions unlocking regenerative capabilities.  Our consultation was employed to analyze and counsel proper strategy for incorporation of this method.
