role of fear (2)

Search for Health(y) (Thinking)...

The role of the fearologist has to be fundamentally concerned about health (Health) [1]... and that has to start with some philosophy, theory of "health(y) thinking"... and, I do not merely mean this is a question or inquiry about "mental health" as is so commonly the route taken, and that's why I manipulated the image above which came from a mental health website... "Health" and "Health(y) Thinking" cannot be taken accurately by dividing them... nor the later merely shuffled off under the umbrella of mental health as a field. The fearologist is quick to challenge that dissociation of the two components and also to place "Fear" central on the 'map' of the inquiry and dialogue about Health in general... so, I added Fear into this diagram from the website.... there will be more discussion about "health" when I get back to Canada...

Hearing of my work with wild BLM horses, we arranged for me to bring in a wild horse from Nevada and filmed me getting on its back and hypnotizing Richard to overcome fears and approach the mustang. Please share with others as my work with wild horse teachers is what led me to realize that all of us have the telepathic ability to communicate love and trust out into the world with any and all living things. Don’t laugh if you don’t recognize me in this 1981 [actually c. 1984] copied video", says Four Arrows (June 17, 2017)
