This is a flier for an "Energy Contact" workshop. This particular workshop took place, obviously, in August, 2003.

Contacting Energetic Reality from Within Our Physical Bodies
By Joseph Willenbrink

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Part I A Universe United
I. Thought Creates Form
Introduces the book, and establishes one of the main tenets, “There is no difference between the body, mind, spirit, emotion, ego, etc.” The chapter explains how our upbringing in western culture makes this the concept of unity counter-intuitive to us, and what we can do about it.
II. Unity in Diversity
This chapter explores the idea of unity in more depth by presenting the wisdom of ancient eastern cultures in a way that those new to the subject can find understandable, interesting and acceptable.
Part II The Basis of The Mass Energy Continuum
III. Building Ourselves
Covers our self development from conception. We have awareness long before we are born. Beginning early in our fetal development, we are already aware of whether or not mom is happy she’s pregnant, whether she’s a health food enthusiast or a crack addict. We build ourselves in response to emotional, physical, and even the hydraulic pressures of the womb. We have awareness, and we build our physical body accordingly.
IV. Energy Anatomy
In the womb, we develop into three “layers”; three types of cells: ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm. In this section we describe how, now that we are adults, these layers have become skin and nerves, guts, muscle and bone, emotion and spirit. Then we explain how the status of each of these three types of cells has determined, and is still determining, how we build body, mind, spirit, emotions, intellect, etc.
V. Structure is Behavior
In this section, we discuss classic descriptions of body types, and what they say about us. We cover Ayurveda’s “vata, pitta, kappha” classifications, Hippocrates’ “body fluids” classification, Paracelsus’ thoughts, and 20th century anthropologist William Sheldon’s “somatotypes”. Then we look at Wilhelm Reich’s contribution to mind-body awareness.
VI. Sizing Ourselves Up
Now that we know all this, we can take a look at ourselves (and others). Some people over-bind and over-rigidify. Other’s slump and deflate. A depressed person builds him/her self differently than a cocky, happy-go-lucky person. Same personality types build themselves in similar ways and patterns. Once we know who and what we are, we can change ourselves to our own specifications.
VII. Minding Our Bodies
What’s the difference between having flat feet vs. high arches? A forward tilted pelvis vs. a backwards tilting one? This chapter describes us body area by body area . . . what “how we’ve built our physical components” says about our intellect, ego, spirit, emotion, moods, etc.
VIII. Pain and Trauma
One of the main influences in our evolution is pain and how we respond to it. Pain and trauma shape our body, mind, spirit, emotions, intellect, ego, etc. The exact same trauma will affect a million different people in a million different ways. This chapter describes what pain and trauma do to us, how we attract our own suffering, and how to release ourselves from that self-destructive cycle.
IX. Energy and Auras
Through this point, we’ve been discussing how we build ourselves in the physical world in response to physical pleasures, pains and pressures. Even the mental and spiritual aspects have been developed in response to physical world events. This chapter is the segue to the energetic self, and how mass and energy interact.
X. Spirituality, Religion and Mysticism
In the previous chapter we saw how unseen forces, from the wind to electrical currents to MRI signals, affect us. If the unseen can take these forms, then perhaps it takes other forms as well. Learning how to manipulate unseen forces is the foundation of all religion and mysticism. The search for reconciliation and alignment with a superior force is spiritual. This chapter shows what these forces and searches have to do with how we are built.
Part III Energy Falls Up
XI. The Chakras
Part III goes into detail about the chakras, and how they allow energy to pass through or cause it to block. This chapter introduces “Kundalini yoga”, from where the chakra concept originated, and describes the who, what, when, where, why, how of chakras so that a novice can understand, while still providing some new interesting information to the “chakra literate”. The chapters below on each chakra have self explanatory titles.
XII. The Root Chakra
XIII. The Pelvic Chakra
XIV. The Solar Plexus Chakra
XV. The Heart Chakra
XVI. The Throat Chakra
XVII. The Third Eye Chakra
XVIII. The Crown Chakra
XIX. Contacting Ourselves
We have “built up” and moved upwards along the chakras one-by-one. In doing so, we have learned a lot about ourselves. But an assembly of good pieces is insufficient. We must realize how all things work together to make one whole. In this chapter we “assemble” all of the chakras, and see ourselves again as one cohesive, connected unit.
Part IV Rebuilding Ourselves
XX. Connecting to the Current
As we approach the conclusion of the book, this chapter begins to pull together all of the information we have presented so far. We look at personality, what happens when things go wrong, and what happens when things go right. We examine the qualities of a “healthy” (in body, mind, spirit, emotion, intellect, ego, etc.) person.
XXI. Rebuilding Ourselves
Now that we know so much, so what? We have established that we have built ourselves to our own specification but were unaware we were doing so. This chapter will guide us as to how to un-build ourselves from the unaware specifications and rebuild ourselves with awareness.
Here's a picture of Joseph educating the masses. Usually he does this with his eyes open.
