  • Power & Benefit of Unity

    James H. Carpenter Barnes, Ph.D., Founder, All I Imagine, Inc

    This topic is focused on enhancing the Power (ability to generate productivity) and Benefit (reward of that productivity) of Unity within the individual or group of individuals. The science of physics has proven the cohesiveness of a unit begins with the bond between single particles which in turn has an effect on the whole. For example, an individual divided within can often be challenged in making sound decisions. This mental/emotional state comes from the Greek word 'dip'-su-chos', which means being double-minded, as in having two opposing minds or souls. This mental state can transfer creating a hostile working relationship within a team, impeding growth and productivity. MORE >

    Mental and emotional integrity is essential to success in every endeavor we undertake. The person who practices internal unity, or oneness, has a consistent positive energetic disposition, someone we enjoy working with. One negative attitude can infect an entire team, making even the simplest task arduous. In our talk we will share a few simple evening and morning practices/exercises that will help to bring the unity within we all so richly deserve. These are practices I have implemented in my own life to improve the intellectual, emotional, and creative aspects of my make up. My wife has been quite pleased with the updated version me, as have I.
