International Conference on SalutoGenesis

June 17 – 18, 2021  |  Girona, Spain

ADVANCING SALUTOGENESIS TOWARDS THRIVING SOCIETIES
The 6th International Conference on SalutoGenesis will be held on June 17th and 18th, 2021 in Girona, Spain. The conference will be held in partnership with the 11th International Union for Health Promotion and Education’s (IUHPE) European Conference on Health Promotion, taking place from 15 to 16 June 2021, also in Girona. These conferences follow five successful International Research Seminars on SalutoGenesis (Helsinki 2008 & 2009, Geneva 2010, Tröllhattan 2011 & 2012), which were sponsored by the IUHPE, its Global Working Group on SalutoGenesis, the Society for Theory and Research on SalutoGenesis (STARS), and the Center of SalutoGenesis (CoS) of the University of Zurich (UZH). According to STARS,

“SalutoGenesis is the concept of the origin of health rather than disease. Developed by Aaron Antonovsky (1979, 1987), the concept focuses on strengthening individual and social resources that protect and actively promote health. In essence, SalutoGenesis is concerned with creating coherent living environments, strengthening socio-ecological health resources as well as strengthening the sense of coherence of individuals and groups.”

The New Human University expands the STARS framework of health, integrally, to include evolution of consciousness — in both states and stages of individuals and cultures within societal structures — through activation of higher, evolutionary functions in the human body including the brain, heart, and DNA.

The New Human University submitted an abstract in response to the public invitation to participate and the abstract was accepted. The full abstract follows below.

Activating Latent SalutoGenic Mechanisms at The New Human University: Integrally Informed Enactment of Emergent Capacities Within Culture and Society Moving Toward Supercoherence

BACKGROUND

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.

Activating Latent SalutoGenic Mechanisms at The New Human University

On Friday, June 18th, 2021, The New Human University presented its preliminary results from PraxisAletheia, The Mystery School at the Leading Edge of Evolution at the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis in the session for “Salutogenesis beyond the health sector in schools and other educational settings.”

The New Human University has cracked the code on higher-brain activation with a revolutionary, integrally informed teaching system, set within a sacred WE-space. The research supports this claim. The following video was presented at the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis and provides a glimpse into preliminary research from The Metamodern Mystery School which demonstrates a strong, statistically significant correlation between unlocking a latent “inner organic technology” and mystical experiences which are associated with New Human capacities.

We believe that PraxisAletheia is about 20 years ahead of the curve, literally and figuratively. It is a well know inability for current growth modalities to promote “late-stage adult development.” Other presenters in this specific session (“Salutogenesis … in schools and other educational settings.”) focused on schools K-12 and college/university where development can be influenced more readily without higher-order catalytic mechanisms. At The New Human University, one of the pillars of our work is causing late-stage adult development in humans that, on average, are upwards of 20 years older than children and young adults.

With respect to young adults, it is uncommon to address “New Human Capacities,” which could be attributed to the lack of a fully formed prefrontal cortex before the age of twenty-five. As adults, we tend to understand that there is untapped, latent potential within us and we, ideally, seek to activate higher-level capacity. “PraxisAletheia, The Mystery School at the Leading Edge of Evolution” unlocks New Human capacities. New Human capacities include:

  1. Intuition, Insight, and Transrational Modes of Knowing
  2. Transforming Challenges into Opportunities
  3. New Behaviors
  4. Heightened Perception
  5. Confidence
  6. Freedom from Personal Drama and Claims to Victimhood
  7. Joy
  8. Purpose
  9. Creativity
  10. Meaningful Relationships
  11. Synchronicity & Psychic Capacity

The methods for unlocking these uncommon capacities seem revolutionary within a framework that believes the brain is fully developed and functionally complete by the age of twenty-five.

But, what if we could unlock and normalize “late-stage adult development” of the brain and mind? What if we could unlock latent Salutogenic mechanisms which promote evolutionary functions of the brain?

Here are some of the slides from the conference:

According to the research, activity in the left hemisphere of the brain is associated with:
  • transformational leadership and leadership maturity
  • higher learning rates
  • assimilation of information into a comprehensible whole
  • creative combination processes
  • attention span
Researchers of salutogenesis, Van Heck and Van Uden (2005), connect spirituality to health by rediscovering the sacred and giving meaning to higher forces such as the soul and the Transcendent.
The NHU is integrally informed. Integral Metatheory is the most complete map of reality that humans have discovered. Complete maps of reality make life exponentially more comprehensible, meaningful, and manageable. Comprehensibility is a one of three components for Sense of Coherence — a measure of Salutogenesis. Comprehensibility increases with accurate categorization into the integral model of the “assents for health and well-being” in the the Salutogenic framework.

The reason that meditation doesn’t work effectively is because it’s a mind-on-mind technique: we try to improve the mind with a mind that needs to be improved. We end up chasing our tail. It’s limited because in only leverages one of four quadrants in the Integral Model.

But what if we can account for the body dimension?  In the past, there’s been a deficit in “salutogens” to counteract “pathogens” Because of this imbalance, the medical model resorts to “anti-pathogens” in the body dimension, which is not coherent with the Salutogenic framework. All four dimensions are correlated, and arise simultaneously, but the greatest leverage point is EMERGENT inner organic technology that awakens higher capacities in the higher brain, which is currently on lockdown. In the salutogenic framework, inner organic technology would be categorized as a “constitutional, generalized resistance resource.”

At quarterly intervals, The New Human University administers assessments which evaluate various aspects of personal growth and development:
  • Sense of Coherence
  • Inner Organic Technology
  • Hierarchical Homeostatic Integration
  • Mastery
  • Flourishing
  • Goal Orientation
  • Mystical Experience
  • Happiness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
We analyze correlations between the various measures of growth & development.
It’s meaningful that we discovered statistically significant changes in:
  1. expression of inner organic technology
  2. self-reported mystical experience
and that these two measures are correlated.

Research is Ongoing

Our research continues. We administer assessments before and after each quarter of PraxisAletheia. Based on results so far, it seems reasonable to expect to continue to observe correlations of various measurements (SOC, IOT) with activation of Inner Organic Technology. We also expect expressions of WE-space supercoherence: self-coherent systems coherently related to other systems.
