Oddly enough, Apogeniks only has one technique, “Apogenesis”.
This technique is a ‘state switcher’. It shifts awareness from symbolic to experiential feedback. So it is analogous to an electrical switch. The Switch is in pretty much every piece of electrical equipment. There are endless types of electrical equipment. But you only need one technique to turn any of them on – press the switch!
The technique of Apogenesis is the switch, and in everything we do we are practising using it. But the big question is what do you want to switch on, and how do you choose it? Indeed how do you even know about it?
The aim in Apogeniks is to select the best possible feedback for a given issue. To do this we refer to an enormous ‘library’ of types of feedback, which I call “Focal Entrainments”. In a way this library is like a huge range of different ‘Awareness Spectacles’ – different ways of being aware about what is happening – essentially different types of experiential feedback. This library is overwhelmingly vast, and has to be approached with respect along your own unique path, for it goes very far beyond most peoples’ experience.
Learning Apogeniks involves understanding Apogenesis (how to turn the switch on), and developing a large range of Awareness Spectacles. This means experimenting with different types of awareness and developing familiarity. It also involves learning how and why we would select any particular pair of spectacles, something I call “Resonant Amplification”.
As we increase the range of types of awareness at our disposal, our skill at changing behaviour becomes greater. We can imagine ourselves as explorers in an unknown territory. We proceed at a pace appropriate to our current receptivity, knowing that each new experience opens us up further and provides us with new ability and new scope for deeper exploration, as well as increasing our confidence in the success of our method. Everything in Apogeniks is testable, so at any point we can check our skill, and if we find any issues deal with them.
Above all this is your unique journey, but in the company of fellow travellers. We each have the ability to illuminate each others’ paths, sharing our experiences and offering new experiments for others to try out. In this way we grow, and our joint ‘library’ grows.
