Paul Turner, Osteopath (Continued)
CEO of Turner Publications and practising Osteopath.
Later, Paul realised that the ideas explored philosophically in Bridging the Gap 1 (BTG1) needed to be expressed in a more Practical, case study oriented way which would help students follow a path to understanding all that they learn in training. He needed to develop a wholistic course which, simply and in understandable terminology, outlines the steps and exercises needed to develop AWARENESS and understanding while one assesses and treats.
Thus, he developed a DVD educational series with an accompanying manual, called “WHOLISTIC INTEGRATED ASSESSMENT, A Teacher-Student Guide (WIA)” [which is now also converted and expanded into an ONLINE EDUCATIONAL COURSE]. This guide converts some of the ideas conveyed in BTG1 into a more practical step by step guide to support integrated learning for students or practitioners within any manual therapy profession. The goal of this work is to replace the “missing integrative element” back into the education system so that all practitioners can work with UNITY and understanding – thus working together for the benefit of their patients.
Simultaneous with all of this, Paul has been running workshops on Multidimensional Healing and has also developed a third book to support these workshops called “Bridging the Gap in Health Care 2 – Multidimensional Assessment” (BTG2). This is particularly useful once the concepts in BTG1 and WIA are understood and developed practically because, once the mind is understood as an assessment tool, it is not really such a great leap to explore other levels of being in a scientific and rational way using the mind as a tool (i.e. it links the primary problem patterns uncovered in the physical body to dysfunction patterns on other levels of being).
Thus, the goal of BTG1 and 2 is to approach the same whole from two different perspectives; 1) from a physical, ground up, perspective, integrating and then building on what we already know from our traditional studies and 2) from the other way around, integrating our understanding from a more energetic above down perspective; from the perspective of the whole to the part.
