Today I came to work to get some good inner processing done and catch up on the many things that pile up whenever I’m on a road trip.
I got into the gym to celebrate my body and disappear into my personal studies as I trained.
It is always amazing to me when I have to use gyms on the road how poorly they are actually designed for exercise! Today I started by dong some walking lunges with club-bell swings out in the sun to warm up. Now that I’m progressively getting more sleep, it’s as though my nervous system is turning back on and my natural strength and power are returning. Add the challenging experience of not being able to get organic foods in some locations, and weak organic foods in others and having to interact with LOTS of people with LOADS of questions and a few long flights in a germ-tube and you’ve got every reason for a regular tai-chi practice, I assure you.
I worked for four years in Sports and Orthopedic Physical Therapy in San Diego, Ca., where we were in partnership with an in-house orthopedic surgical center. During my time there, I worked closely there with a number of orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers and my staff of clinical massage therapists. After that, Steve Clarke, PT (an Orthopedic and Sports Certified Physical Therapist) and I opened Golden Triangle Rehabilitation, where we continued to specialize in challenge cases.
While working with the surgeons for many years, I was invited to attend many surgical procedures and attended five cadaver dissection courses, which was an essential part of taking my textbook knowledge of anatomy into a comprehensive 3D understanding of how the musculoskeletal system and other systems of the body work together. When I would get a new case, it was normal for me to review their entire medical history, which often took many hours to do as some of them occupied multiple medical folders! I soon found that many of my patients had seen multiple doctors of a variety of types, but noticed that for the large part, they all stuck to the treatment of the patient’s symptoms. The PTs used a variety of modalities, including a lot of isokinetic exercise machines, PNF stretching and strengthening and lots of gadgets! Each profession I’ve interacted with has their unique approach, but at large 99% of them are addressing symptoms within their own paradigm, which is still true today.
During the first 10 years of my career, I also spent a lot of time studying human physiology. I soon learned that to help people with the magnitude of challenges I was dealing with on a daily basis, I would have to look deeper than my peers.
The process I’ve briefly outlined above led me to the study of control systems in the human body; which is essentially the study of human physiology. With a LOT of study, clinical practice, consulting with experts from a wide variety of fields and clinical experimentation, I began to correlate my studies of developmental man with anatomy and physiology, which was sparked by studying the hierarchical nature of the nervous and hormonal systems. I looked carefully at the development of species over time from the beginning of the taxonomic tree of life. What emerged progressively was an awareness of the absolute essentials of what it takes to sustain life in a body of any type, be it a single celled organism, jellyfish, dog, cat, horse, chimpanzee, dolphin, whale, or human being. The symbols on my totem pole are not fixed at every level and to fully explain the totem pole is very complex and can only be understood by those with significant knowledge and experience in a variety of related fields. In no case to date has anyone that has been trained in the use of the CHEK Totem Pole system of analyzing the human body found it to be incorrect and all that use it correctly have found it very useful, particularly with challenging patients. Before I share a little about breathing, I’d like to share my own personal philosophy about a subject rarely looked at!the origin of breathing. Even when I’ve had discussions with experts very skilled in breath work from a wide variety of fields, very few had any idea at all where the urge to breath originates from. In my life, I’ve found that you can’t ever really understand any topic without exhausting prior origination to the best of your ability or the ability of the human mind.
To answer this question myself, I had to leave the library and clinic and get deep into meditation.
The perpetual interaction between no-thing and some-thing ultimately creates all the forces known to physics and quantum physics, and are the basis of both life and human physiology and psychology (mind). Astronomers and quantum physicists now confirm that black holes eject massive amounts of light and matter. Current observations and theory suggest that a black hole can give birth to a white hole, from which a new star is born; extreme yang.

Since all matter at the level of atoms upward are constantly radiating and exchanging energy, it appears to me from a combination of my inner explorations and a review of relevant sciences that breathing is an inherent quality of the universe itself, and therefore, all things embodied within it. Flip that coin over and you have a relative viewpoint; if you have adequate motive to live, you have adequate impetus to breath.
With that understanding, I found very clear evidence in MANY of my challenging patients that they had progressively lost their desire to live. In practice, I found that many people’s emotional and energy states improved with breathing practices that improved breathing technique.
It took me another ten years of study and empirical research to bring my knowledge and understanding of these issues to a zen state, which is essential for purposes of teaching. If you look at my original CHEK Totem Pole above, you can see that there is a symbol missing when compared to my artistic rendition above. Love is a word that describes the essential process of both energy exchange in the universe, and the subject~object relationship inherent in any relationship we have with person(s), place(s), or thing(s). Ultimately, L0Ve is the process that created the impetus for Kosmic Breath; Kosmos is a Greek word that means the functional marriage of the physiosphere (physical), biosphere, and noesphere (mind). For example, what we breath in (giving to ourselves) gives way to the outbreath (regiving), which is the substance of inbreathing for plants and tress completing an essential cycle of life in the biosphere we live in.
I found (eventually a??) that before I could expect any long-term positive changes in an individual’s breathing pattern and performance, I had to address as many of the underlying mental-emotional stressors or triggers as possible. Sadly, I found that the most common cause of mental-emotional stressors and triggers that retarded breathing performance were issues relating directly to beliefs about God and religion! First, I had to look at these forces from the perspective of achieving baseline physiological functioning.
Finally, I had to develop a functional, simple living philosophical model I could use to help my patients (and students!) create core values. Only when I knew their dream (1 Love), where they were imbalanced (2 Forces), and what choices they needed to make to heal and prosper could I determine what values they would need to consider adopting to heal. These topics were so important in my practice that I produced a multimedia ebook called The Last 4 Doctors You’ll Ever Need, How To Get Healthy Now! This little eBook may be just the medicine your soul, or someone you love needs to begin their path down the CHEK TOTEM Pole to well-being. I have now come to fully understand why many of the people I gave my best to over the years didn’t fully recover. Neither of which tend to make me popular with closed minded students or delegates at conferences either, but hey, I can see how they are breathing and watch their energy field fluctuations from the stage so I understand the nature of their fears!
With this preface to the CHEK Totem Pole now addressed, I will continue to give an overview of each of the nine symbols, beginning with breathing over the next 9 blogs. My new program by this title is coming down the birth canal very nicely thanks to our most excellent staff editor and videographer, Daryl Isaacs. I have created a special report that provides some essential knowledge needed by anyone wanting to understand the nature of fungal and parasite infections. I have helped hundreds of people heal from fungal and parasite infections and have applied the same research, logic and reasoning to this topic that I’ve applied to the rest of the CHEK teachings. If you would like your FREE REPORT and to be notified of the release of my new program so you can benefit from our early bird special, simply go to the following web address and you can gain the benefits immediately! Breathing meditation is a foundation practice through which we improve our mindfulness and concentration and develop a peaceful balanced state of mind.A  This meditation also improves our physical health and general well-being. On this basis we can graduate to other practices through which we can truly open our heart and actualize the extraordinary capacities for love, joyfulness, and wisdom that exist within. Join us for this workshop which explores these meditations enabling us to bring more joy into our life.A  Everyone is welcome! Gen Kelsang Chogden is an American Buddhist nun and theA  Resident Teacher of the Kadampa Meditation Center Maryland in Baltimore.A  She will explain and guide these meditations, showing how we can connect with inner peace and our natural good heart. This provides the popular quote "If I must choose between nurturing you as well as breathing, I would use my final express to state I enjoy you." You will certainly acquire one wall structure sticker for one affordable price! It’s so nice to be in my own gym where I’ve got excellent (Eleiko) equipment and space to move.

All the time zone shifts and sleep deprivation can turn a naturally strong man into a wet dishrag after four weeks. I created it after ten years of clinical practice as a Holistic Health Practitioner, strength and conditioning specialist, and Neuromuscular therapist specializing in chronic injury and medical failure cases. If my right arm looks bigger than my left arm to you, it’s because I carried Guyton’s Text Book Of Physiology everywhere! The CHEK Totem Pole is my artistic rendition of the fruits of my studies and clinical (empirical) practice and the results I obtained to give me confidence that I was indeed, on the right path. That seemed to me to be a fundamental question; they are like breathing atheists that seem to be perplexed by, afraid, or unwilling to ask THE BIG QUESTION.
I saw that emptiness (which reaches its peak in a black hole) was perpetually becoming something; something expresses anything from a quantum particle all the way to massive stars. The black hole draws every-thing, including light (and therefore virtual particles if you consider bosons to be virtual particles); extreme yin.
As you can see in the photo of a black hole galaxy above, it is ejecting huge amounts of light and matter out of itself; the out-breath of the in-breath.
If a person (or mammal!) becomes adequately depressed or afraid, they can, and do commit suicide, ending breathing in a physical body. This realization led me deep into the study of human psychology, religion, and metaphysics, which became the basis of my more advanced training programs (CHEK Level 4, HLC 2 and HLC 3). That symbol (see artistic rendering above) represents what I eventually found to be the origin of most diseases of body, mind and soul. I had to find a motivator more powerful and influential than their perceived or real stressor(s) or I could end up added to the long list of doctors and therapists they’d seen. The Suboptimal: The choice that usually brings instant gratification, yet tends to create pain in key relationships. This is the realm of both psychology and metaphysics, neither of which are very popular subjects in doctors, nor most therapists offices!
I hope you enjoy the process and that you pick up some practical tips for creating your dreams. It is FREE to you when signing up to be notified of the release of my new DVD (and workbook option) course of study. Particularly when considering that current statistics suggest that about 90% of human beings have a fungal infection, and about 90% also have a parasite infection, and many have both! A In particular, the ingenious meditation known as Taking and Giving allows us to develop all these qualities simultaneously.
Gen Chogden has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for nearly 15 years and brings true sincerity and humility to her life as a spiritual teacher. We offer Buddhaa€™s timeless teachings in a simple, practical manner that can help you solve your problems and find happiness from within. This is the most devastating of choices and results in something akin to a human being literally rotting off the vine so-to-speak; these were, sadly, many of my chronically ill and challenged patients.
