The Field Dynamics Podcast intends to set the standard in understanding the nature of consciousness and transformation from a holistic perspective, facilitating inspiring dialogues across disciplines, communities, and practitioners. We examine the role of the human energy field in wellness, healing, self-realization, and science. Each episode features illuminating conversations with world-class experts providing you with cutting-edge perspectives. We uncover the tools, traditions, modalities, and mechanics of consciousness transformation: from energy healing to family constellations, somatic therapies to vibrational medicine, neuroscience to meditation – we believe the most interesting things happen at the boundaries of disciplines.

    "The Internal Causes of Disease" with Peter Mole

    "The Internal Causes of Disease" with Peter Mole

    Peter Mole is one of the UK's leading practitioners of acupuncture, the Dean at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading and a founding member of the Executive Committee of the British Acupuncture Council. Peter’s particular interest lies in how Chinese medicine understands how people’s internal worlds - especially their emotions - affect their physical and psychological health. He states that “Western medicine is a great system yet it lacks an understanding of how stress and distress affect people’s health. However, this is one of Chinese medicine’s greatest strengths".  We discuss the role of constitution in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), the difference between prana & qi, diagnostic methods in acupuncture and how Peter connects to and tracks the flow of qi through the needle. We cover the vital role of the emotions in health, and his experience of physical versus psycho-emotional orientations to treatment. Peter shares his thoughts on the value of finding meaningful work and loving relationships and the importance of building resilience in mind, body and emotions. He contextualizes the term Spirit in Chinese, shares a little of his personal travels in India and the importance of living in harmony with nature and the Tao. Peter is the author of "Acupuncture for Body, Mind and Spirit", directed at patients and prospective students, and co-author of the major textbook "Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture". He has lectured extensively in Europe, Israel, and the USA. Peter received an M.A. in Modern History from Oxford University. He has been practising acupuncture since 1978.

    "The Layers & Levels of the Cosmos!" with Steven Forrest

    "The Layers & Levels of the Cosmos!" with Steven Forrest

    Our special guest for today’s New Year episode is world-renowned astrologer Steven Forrest. Steven is the author of a dozen astrological bestsellers including the classic, The Inner Sky. Over the course of his stellar career Steven has travelled world-wide teaching his brand of choice-centered Evolutionary Astrology, which integrates free will, grounded humanistic psychology and ancient metaphysics. We discuss how a person’s astrological imprint might be mapped onto their aura or energy field, how astrology is a method of understanding the hermetic adage "as above, so below" and how astrology can provide a useful roadmap to a soul's journey. Steven describes the approach of Evolutionary Astrology and how it incorporates the conditioning of past-lives to understand our karmic patterns in the current one. We discuss ways of considering how astrology works and why the moment of birth is so integral to our astrological mapping. Steven shares some of his personal journey, and how he views astrology as a path to self-knowledge. We discuss the role of the planet pluto, known as the lord of the underworld - the shamanic planet, the journey of the soul or mindstream (citta-santāna), the relationship of astrology to co-creating the evolution of consciousness and how collective or mundane astrology is performed. In this inspiring and informative conversation Steven shares how knowledge of his own astrological chart has informed and contextualized his life journey and the potential that astrology holds in empowering individuals to understand themselves and navigate life in a deeper, more meaningful way.

    Of Steven's work, the musician Sting says he "...manages to disarm the sceptic, as well as debunk the charlatanism that surrounds popular astrology, with language that is as intelligent and cogent as it is poetic"  whilst Rob Brezny, in his popular Real Astrology column, simply calls him “the most brilliant astrologer alive”.

    "Electrical Engineering for the Body" with Dr. Dan Keown

    "Electrical Engineering for the Body" with Dr. Dan Keown

    Today we are joined by Dr. Daniel Keown, author of the ground-breaking book "The Spark in the Machine: How the Science of Acupuncture Explains the Mysteries of Western Medicine" (2014) and more recently “The Uncharted Body” (2019). Dan has been a practicing doctor for over twenty years, and an acupuncturist for more than a decade. In 2010 he studied alongside the renowned Dr. Wang Ju-Yi at the Institute of Channel Diagnosis in Beijing. We discuss the importance of electricity in the health and function of the body, and how the meridian channels correspond to fascial pathways that surgeons routinely use. Dan suggests that dis-ease is fundamentally about dysfunctional qi flow, likening acupuncture to electrical engineering for the body. He explains how channel palpation works in relation to diagnostics and how fascia is the primary tissue allowing electrical movement throughout the body. We discuss how shen - or spirit - is an integral component to the health and happiness of an individual, and perhaps the most important indicator of health. We explore the fascinating connection between embryology and acupuncture, morphogenetic fields, the mystery of how a single cell becomes an entire body and how the six divisions in acupuncture theory serve as embryological planes. Furthermore, we discuss the extraordinary channels and how he views chakras as nerve ganglions, or mini-brains. Dan shares his frustration with the western medical model's reductionism, where he feels it does and doesn't work, and highlights how it excels with emergency medicine. He also shares a controversial viewpoint in which he feels that western medicine is a broken system. Dan envisions a future in which acupuncture is the first line of therapy in healthcare and hospitals worldwide - providing an inexpensive, intelligent, and effective way of supporting people's health and well-being.
    Dan received a degree in medicine from Manchester University in 1998, and 2008 he completed a degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the College of Integrated Medicine affiliated with Kingston University, and has been a member of the British Acupuncture Council since. He practices in Tunbridge Wells, UK and runs an online teaching institute The School of Scientific Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture which he founded in 2015.

    "You Open Your Heart and You Honor Your Parents" with Susan Ulfelder

    "You Open Your Heart and You Honor Your Parents" with Susan Ulfelder

    Today we are joined by Susan Ulfelder, Director of the Hellinger Institute of DC and both graduate and former Dean at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. We discuss Susan's current work in Family Constellations, a powerful approach to individual and family healing developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger, her experience as a hands-on healer through modalities such as Polarity Therapy and Brennan Healing Science and her personal development of high sense perception (ESP). We consider the powerful process of "representation" in family constellations, and what it is to expand our focus from the perception of the individual field through to the systemic or family field. We discuss some of the more fascinating energetic dynamics of the family field such as how energetic cords or entanglements between people function, and how issues and themes travel across generations. We also cover the power of healing words and phrases in Constellation work, and Susan shares her experience with founder Bert Hellinger, who emphasised the honouring of our parents for giving us life, which restores the flow of love through generations past.

    "Connecting to Who You Are" with Michael Oruch

    "Connecting to Who You Are" with Michael Oruch

    Joining us today is President Emeritus of the Zero Balancing Board of Directors, Michael Oruch, an established Zero Balancing teacher and practitioner based in New York City. Michael views Zero Balancing as a vehicle for health, wellness and positive change both personally and collectively, and was inspired to teach Zero Balancing (or ZB) following years of study and tutelage with the modality Founder, Dr. Fritz Smith. We discuss how Zero Balancing uses fulcrums to clear vibration held in the bone, joints and the energy field of clients, how working with bone connects to our ancestors and why releasing held tension in the body catalyzes self-reorganisation. We address the key ZB concept of "interface" - how the practitioner navigates the boundary between structure and energy through touch. Michael shares his insights regarding how healing is about accessing that which is hidden, as we free ourselves from suffering and resolve trauma in the body and the mind. Key aspects of Zero Balancing are discussed including expanded states of consciousness and what it means to “hurt good’. Interestingly, we explore how a touch-based modality can be used for remote healing through the use of surrogates. 
     Michael has taught Zero Balancing extensively in both the US and internationally, and has additionally spent many years studying Qigong, Tai Chi and related forms, which he has taught at New York University. He has made significant contributions to the ZB community as a Mentor Faculty Advisor, through teacher trainings, and serving on various committees. He has also personally developed three Zero Balancing classes and two Zero Balancing training DVD's. Michael believes Zero Balancing can help a practitioner to be more present and clear in the world, with themselves, and each person they contact.

    "Hindered by Fear and Helped by Love" with Jim Gilkeson

    "Hindered by Fear and Helped by Love" with Jim Gilkeson

    Our guest today is Jim Gilkeson, teacher, craniosacral therapist and author of both A Pilgrim in Your Body: Energy Healing and Spiritual Process (2009) and Energy Healing: A Pathway to Inner Growth (1999). Jim shares with us the first time he laid hands on someone with healing intent, and the life circumstances that led him to subtle energy work. We discuss how energy work moves us towards more than just symptom management, and engages our psycho-spiritual process. We hear how Jim teaches people to shift from a physical paradigm to an energetic one and his strategy for locating energy blocks through awareness, tracking and allowing. As a practitioner, he highlights the importance of deep listening, and his great passion for one-one-one mentoring and supporting those in transition to energy healing from bodywork backgrounds. Sharing details of his own self-practice, we also learn how healing at its best, and most elegant, takes place with the tiniest of nudges.

Alina Gavrila ,

Wonderful podcast, very insightful

I do free online meditations with Christabel and Keith via Insight Timer and I’m also doing one of their short courses on energy work online. I find their meditations so very VERY helpful amd healing, and listening to this podcast is a nice adjunct to the inner work I’m already doing. I’ve always been fascinated by the non-physical plane of reality and this podcast really speaks to that interest. It’s not just woo-woo (although it would be fine if it were), the podcast (and their classes) really incorporate science and an evidence-based approach :)

Veegirrrl ,
