At MICH, we promote awareness of the noumenal dimension: the subtle, invisible, and immaterial level of life not accessible by the physical senses. It is often called the vital force, soul, or the organizational principle of the organism. The process involves becoming aware of ourselves as “Noumenon”, in contrast to knowing ourselves only as phenomenon, an object of the physical senses. It is a process of discovering the essence that distinguishes and animates, establishes and maintains the organism as ONE unique WHOLE.
Perceiving the subtle, noumedynamic level of the individual is central to understanding what needs to be addressed in the case of disease, and, for homeopaths, what remedy would be most suited to encourage a cure. But this capacity can be applied effectively in any therapeutic or relational context, or to bring greater meaning to everything in our lives.
