Generative Energy #16: Hair Loss and Prostate Cancer


Listen to Georgi and me discuss a bioenergetic view of hair loss and prostate cancer on episode #16 of The Generative Energy Podcast! 

“The true method of knowledge is experiment.”
—William Blake

“Experience is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person’s ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me. Neither the Bible nor the prophets — neither Freud nor research — neither the revelations of God nor man — can take precedence over my own direct experience. My experience is not authoritative because it is infallible. It is the basis of authority because it can always be checked in new primary ways. In this way its frequent error or fallibility is always open to correction.”
—Carl Rogers
