The Embryo in Us: A Phenomenological Search for Soul and Consciousness in the Prenatal Body

Wine got drunk with us, not the other way.
The body developed out of us not we from it.
We are bees and our body is a honeycomb.
We made the body, cell by cell we made it.
Rumi (1207 - 1273)

Implantation Journey: The Original Human Myth (Part 2)

$10.00
Price: $10.00

The implantation journey of the blastocyst/embryo is traced throughout its many biologic/embryologic transitions and transmutations. Possible psychological impacts that may arise from early stresses, imprints, and other experiences are discussed. The journeying blastocyst/embryo is sometimes portrayed as a protagonist in the transcript of each human being’s personal past. Events confronted and subsequent coping or survival styles during the journey are examined in reference to adult behavior patterns and belief systems.
