BOSTON: Janice Goldman, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer in the College of Management at the University of Massachusetts, Boston led the discussion on an interesting topic, “Principles and Practice of Tong Ren Healing” on July 20 at MIT Wednesday group meeting, Cambridge, MA.
Kashif Ul Huda introduced Janice Goldman to the audience with her brief professional data.She graduated from MIT with a specialization in Organizational Sociology. Her interest in Tong Ren is both as a practitioner and as a scholar tracing the emergence of this exciting new healing modality and organization.
She said that Tong Ren is a form of energy healing that restores health and vitality of a person by combining the western knowledge of anatomy and physiology with the ancient principle of “chi,” or life force energy. It is based on the belief that people’s body gets diseases due to the interruptions or blockages in the natural flow of chi, neural bioelectricity, blood, or hormones.
She also stated that Tong Ren uses collective unconscious technique to restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself, even when the person’s condition is chronic, debilitating, or untreatable. This is practiced as a distance healing and no physical involvement of the practitioner and patient is necessary. In this healing technique, energy from the universal source is passed on directly to the patient.
She demonstrated the technique by using a small human anatomical model as an energetic representation of the audience who are having some ailments in different parts of the body, and tapping on targeted points for that ailment on the model with a lightweight magnetic hammer.
She said to the audience that she is directing chi to blockage points corresponding to the audience’s condition/s, and breaking down resistance at these points. She promised that as blood flows, neural transmission and hormone reception are restored. The body will then be able to heal itself.
She asserted that this energy healing is an effective method for healing people with Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and other serious illnesses by removing the blockage which interferes with the proper functioning of the body. Janice engaged audience’s interest in this technique during her demonstration session as the theory of collective unconsciousness was working for this therapy.
A few in the audience were wondering that for any healing system, there has to be a supporting theory and empirical evidence. But this therapy is purely based on the conjecture of belief system of the practitioner and patient, philosophy of the collective unconscious and the power of the mind.
In her response, Janice said that when a group comes together to form a collective unconscious, as in healing meditation, this collective mind can become the healing power and the leader works like a font that show a letter on a monitor in a computer.
She concluded her presentation by saying proof may be found in research or empirical data but Tong Ren has not been proven by any expert research. This is the next step in the therapy.
“I felt some tingling in my knees and flow of some energy. It feels good” an audience in the meeting told this reporter.
