STARS Conference

STARS is the Society for Theory And Research on Salutogenesis.  The mission of STARS is to advance and promote the science of Salutogenesis. According to their website, STARS provides a transdisciplinary platform for scientific exchange between researchers in the field of Salutogenesis. The society formed by STARS is a bridge between the International Union for Health Promotion and Education’s (IUHPE) Global Working Group on Salutogenesis (GWG), and the broader scientific community working in areas other than health promotion.

Girona, Spain

STARS is holding the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis in Girona, Spain, from June 17th to 18th, 2021, in partnership with IUHPE. (Due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the conference will be held online.) The working title for the conference is “Advancing Salutogenesis towards thriving societies.”  The conference aims to:

  • Advance theory and research on Salutogenesis

  • Share and discuss innovative approaches in four topic areas

      • How to advance the overall salutogenic model of health

      • How to advance the concept of sense of coherence, SoC

      • How to design salutogenic interventions and change processes in complex systems

      • How to apply Salutogenesis beyond the health sector

Response to invitation

​STARS invited the public to submit abstracts for presentation at the conference.  The New Human University responded to the invitation by submitting two abstracts (the maximum number allowed per presenter) and, as of April 6th, 2021, one of those abstracts was accepted.

The NHU is going to be among STARS at the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis.

Advancing Salutogenesis towards thriving societies

The core technology of The New Human University used in all our programs is an Inner Organic Technology that initiates a SalutoGenic response. SalutoGenesis awakens dormant, evolutionary, self-promoting functions within the human body — including higher functions of the higher brain, higher heart, and human DNA — which in turn awakens the higher mind, including higher consciousness, and promotes higher stage development. Humans that operate with higher, emergent, evolutionary functions create thriving culture and society. And while The NHU does not directly promote health, health and wellness are natural and organic results of promoting SalutoGenesis through activation of Inner Organic Technology.

At the conference, we will present our work and associated research.

Here’s one of the two abstracts:



The methods and systems enacted by The New Human University (NHU) have been demonstrated in academic research to be associated with positive quality-of-life changes as assessed by validated scales of flourishing, mastery, happiness, anxiety, and depression. Said methods and systems (1) awaken latent Salutogenic mechanisms and functions in the human body, brain, and mind via a protocol of low-force contacts on the body, and (2) promote integrally informed enactment of newly emergent capacities into culture and society. 

The NHU augmented previous academic research with a second study with a control group, the results evidencing statistically significant changes in several aforementioned scales (pending submission for publication). A paper submitted to Integral Review evidences correlations between gamma-band frequencies in the brain and vertical stage development within an NHU population (N=24) enacting NHU methods, wherein gamma-band activity is associated with assimilation of information into a comprehensible whole, creative combination processes, transformational leadership and leadership maturity, higher learning rates, and attention span.

In February 2021, a new cohort of ~50 students began a year-long program within The NHU, activating latent Salutogenic mechanisms and integrally applying emergent capacities to the life process within a “WE-space.” 

Aim & Methods

Awaken latent Salutogenic mechanisms using NHU methods and assess changes. Before-and-after assessments include: SOC-29, quantitative EEG (Neuroguide), Hierarchical Homeostatic Integration (vertical development scale), Mastery, Flourishing, Mystical Experience, Happiness, Anxiety, Depression, and a novel scale measuring four distinct, physically observable expressions of Salutogenesis in the body. Support students through online courses, teachings, and interactions. In August 2021, the cohort gathers in the same location for a group experience of Unitary Evolutionary Enlightenment.

Expected Results

We expect statistically significant measurements correlating activation of latent Salutogenic mechanisms with aforementioned scales, as well as expressions of WE-space supercoherence: self-coherent systems coherently related to other systems.

Invitation to Early Enrollment

If you find this work important, then you may wish to be an active participant in both self-development and in the development of thriving societies through the SalutoGenic framework and the structures for enactment provided by The New Human University.

We have several programs available to meet the needs of the public, but our highest-level program — the one that is responsible for (1) massive personal and cultural transformation as well (2) providing research data — is PraxisAletheia: The Metamodern Mystery School.

You’re invited to participate in the class of 2022.  While classes start January 31st, 2022, we’ve opened early enrollment which provides at least 2 major benefits

  1. Substantial incentive on tuition
  2. Sufficient time for preparation (e.g. adjusting schedules, adjusting to our learning environment, etc.)

If you think you may be a fit, then watch this webinar.
