This book is intended to be an inspiration for therapists to recognize, classify and successfully treat the phenomenon of Shock. A comprehensible language also offers the layman a unique opportunity to better understand Shock from a unique perspective. "Shock is the effect of an event beyond the breaking point of individual stress resilience, whether psychological, emotional or mechanical. This Shock-effect manifests itself as Shock Energy, which is a form of fixed energy manifested in the fluidity of the tissue." Shock energy has specific properties such as a braking, even a blocking, effect on vitality, potential for change and liveliness itself. Shock is crystallized Shock energy, frozen in space-time, mostly carrier of tissue memories of the experienced event. This leads to time-resistant and often therapy-resistant phenomena in the affected body. Shock energy is a manifestation on the fluid level, and must therefore also be addressed on this level - every manual therapist should learn to use this 'language'. This is not magic, just another language to build a dialogue with the biography of the affected person at the tissue level. In this book, the subject of Shock is dissected from Edward Muntinga DO's very personal 'experience-based' perspective. What is Shock? How do you recognize Shock? How do you treat Shock? What are the qualities and chronicities of tissue memories carried by Shock energy? A substantial part of the book is a kind of 'Shock library' in which the reader can draw on the author's wealth of experience.

“Each person can learn to recognize and resolve their shock experience, sometimes alone, other times with help. Mines’ goal is to empower the reader to clear out the conditioning that decreases our freedom to live with buoyancy.” —Psychology Today Have you tried to “snap out of it” but just can’t seem to? We Are All in Shock shows how you can move past traumas—grounded in psychology, energy medicine, and neurobiology—to reclaim your health and potential through energy healing. “Dr. Stephanie Mines offers practical steps people can use to fortify and empower themselves and their loved ones …It is a book for our times."—Peter A. Levine, PhD, author, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma We Are All in Shock provides the tools for reclaiming complete well-being after overwhelming experiences of shock, whether caused by the massive sweep of current events or a personal catastrophe. Dr. Mines redefines psychological trauma and revolutionizes the concept of self-care by identifying the true cause of anxiety, explaining why it is so prevalent in society today and how by recognizing its effect we can find new stability and healing. Parents, nurses, crisis workers, massage therapists and body workers, psychotherapists and the everyday reader will benefit from the practices Dr. Mines designed not only for symptomatic relief but also for the complete resolution of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual shock and trauma. We Are All in Shock demystifies energy medicine by presenting the reader with tools to help diminish and eliminate the nervous system’s habitual responses to overwhelming events. Dr. Mines’ work combines skills from energy healing related to acupressure on the energy meridians of the body with the most contemporary scientific interpretation of how the brain works, to offer a clear understanding of neurological behavior.

Living Nature, not dull Art Shall plan my ways and rule my heart -Cardinal Newman Nature and Art 1868 One of the ineluctable consequences of growth in any field of science is that subjects of inquiry once established tend to give birth to subsubjects and that the subsubjects once established will in time undergo further mitotic division. Not so many years ago, problems surrounding the ietus and newly born infant lay in a realm almost to be described as a "no-man's land." Obstetricians properly gave major consideration to understanding and learning about processes and disorders concerned with maternal health and safety. The welfare of the infant was regarded as of secondary importance. Pediatricians on their part hesitated to invade the nursery, a sanctum regarded as belonging to the domain of the accoucheur. And the pathologist, enveloped in the mysteries of life and death in the adult, found scant tim~ for the neonate and the placenta.

'Impassioned, hugely informative, wonderfully controversial, and scary as hell' John le Carré Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos; exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally remake our world in their image. They are the shock doctors. Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively the shock doctors' beliefs now dominate our world - and how this domination has been achieved. Raking in billions out of the tsunami, plundering Russia, exploiting Iraq - this is the chilling tale of how a few are making a killing while more are getting killed. 'Packed with thinking dynamite ... a book to be read everywhere' John Berger 'If you only read one non-fiction book this year, make it this one' Metro Books of the Year 'There are a few books that really help us understand the present. The Shock Doctrine is one of those books' John Gray, Guardian 'A brilliant book written with a perfectly distilled anger, channelled through hard fact. She has indeed surpassed No Logo' Independent

TRILOGY BOOK TWO includes three books from my numerous writings. Writing and philosophizing for so long now, I am pleased to get to do this while others simply cant take the time. In my journeys, I dont know if I am getting closer to knowing anything, and it seems the more I know, the more I know I dont know. I suppose all we can be sure of, is that as long as we are alive, we have the opportunity to keep searching, while continuing to delve into our minds and hearts for clues to greater meaning and purpose on earth. How long have you been standing here, God? is the title of the book, and it comes to you along with two others, Evolution: Facts and Fairy Tales and Amistad (Spanish for friendship). All three were written with you (the reader and fellow life-mate) especially in mind. If you struggle with your personal spirituality, and need greater awareness that God is on all sides of you, then maybe How long have you been standing here, God? (Book One) will be helpful. If you are wondering about your origins, trying to figure out how it all came about, then perhaps Evolution: Facts and Fairy Tales (Book Two) will make things even more confusing! During my time in Central America, I have learned plenty about the concept of friendship, and I mean that in the context of the whole of life. Amistad (Book Three) is a book about befriending the people, places and things that make up our lives.
