College of MBM Energy Medicine Residential Conference: MBM Students Learn about Human Energy Field, and Participate in Chakra Energy Assessment07/16/2012
On June 11, approximately 22 students prepared to attend the residential component of their class on The Human Energy Field and Energy Medicine at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Bethesda, MD. That morning the Hyatt suffered a power outage (an “energy crisis”) leaving hundreds of guests walking down several flights of stairs and missing some of the comforts that electricity brings, particularly the air conditioning. Unfazed by the lack of electricity Associate Dean Dan Sterenchuk quickly responded and found an alternative location for the class. College Chair Don Moss led a morning meditation and check-in on the mezzanine of the Hyatt, and then students proceeded to the new location and spent the day with Beverly Rubik, PhD, learning about some of the latest advances in Energy Medicine.
The SIRB and your Research
One aspect of being an ethical professional is that all research should be proposed and approved by an institutional review board, which assures the well-being of any human participants involved in the research. For Saybrook students and faculty, the Saybrook Institutional Review Board (or SIRB) must approve any research project before it is implemented.
