Dr. Mario Martinez to speak at First UU Nashville this Sunday, Feb. 6

Dr. Martinez is the founder of biocognitive psychology and a friend of Luminous Mind. He will be speaking at both morning services on February 6, 9 and 11 am. Topic:

 "Archetypal Wounds and their Healing Fields:
How the Mind Communicates with the Body"

When we lack sufficient protective skills, those responsible for shaping our early histories can inflict emotional pain that disrupts the natural development of self valuation. Although these traumatic events occur under different conditions, their biosymbols (symbols affecting biology) remain the same across cultures, and surface
as archetypal wounds.

Drawing from biocognitive science, chaos theory, and ancient Tibetan psychology, Dr. Martinez teaches how to identify the subtle scripts of fear that sabotage our pursuit of joy, and how to establish a foundation of safety that facilitates mind-body healing. As the internal language that supports fear changes, the paralyzing perception of impending defeat is replaced with biosymbolic hope and a predisposition for abundance.

Dr. Mario E. Martinez is a clinical psychologist who lectures worldwide on his theory of Biocognitive Psychology (how cultural beliefs affect the immune system and longevity). He specializes in psychoneuroimmunology and has published numerous professional articles on mind-body psychology. In his psychological novel, "The Man from Autumn," he explores how science and the wisdom of theologian mystics can be converged to treat psycho-spiritual conflicts that can lead to illness. He has investigated cases of alleged stigmata for the Catholic Church, the BBC and National Geographic.
