Wandering Without Strings: Part 10 – Unveiling Synpraxis and Embracing Recognition



The world around us often demands proof, a visible trail of evidence that our ideas hold merit. But what if our minds, with their intricate networks, defy conventional demonstration? My journey has always been one of navigating this landscape, a dance between understanding and being understood.


Recently, I found myself exhilarated when a respected intellectual—a sociologist of notable repute—acknowledged my Substack. My writings on Synpraxis, a term I coined to describe an integrative methodology combining diverse healing modalities, had caught his attention. This validation from someone I hold in high regard was more than just a nod of approval; it was a beacon, illuminating the path I’ve been carving out for myself.


Synpraxis is not just a concept; it is a living, breathing framework. It weaves together the varied threads of my experiences, blending them into a cohesive tapestry. My award-winning essay on Alan Watts in a Metamodern World, which introduced this term and my work with the Compassion Collective, further solidified my belief in the power of integrative thinking. This essay, and the scholarship it garnered, are testaments to the resonance of these ideas within broader intellectual circles.


Personal Integration Through Synpraxis


Synpraxis is not only a professional endeavor but also a deeply personal one. It is the methodology I employ for my own integrative work, mindmapping the labyrinthine workings of my brain. In developing this Synpraxis, I drew from various influential frameworks, including Internal Family Systems (IFS), Yogi Bhajan’s Universal Mind, and Marvin Minsky’s Society of Mind. Each of these frameworks contributed unique insights that helped shape my understanding and approach.


Internal Family Systems (IFS) has been instrumental in helping me communicate and understand different aspects of myself. By viewing my mind as a system of parts, each with its own role and personality, IFS has allowed me to build trust and foster cooperation within myself, laying the foundation for deeper integration. Yogi Bhajan’s Universal Mind has provided a spiritual dimension to my integrative work. His concept of the Universal Mind emphasizes the interconnectedness of all beings and the potential for higher consciousness.


This perspective has guided me in aligning my individual experiences with a greater sense of purpose and unity. Marvin Minsky’s Society of Mind, with its theory that the mind is composed of numerous agents working together, has resonated deeply with me. It supports the idea that our mental processes are not singular but a complex interplay of various cognitive functions. This understanding has enriched my approach to mindmapping, allowing me to appreciate the diversity and complexity of my mental landscape.


Embracing OmniSyntra Principles


In my practice, I draw from the principles of OmniSyntra, a symbiotic journey of eightfold harmony, each represented by a different aspect of myself. Sher, the Integrator, embodies the recognition from intellectual peers, affirming the integrative power of Synpraxis. This weaving of diverse modalities into a unified approach holds significant value, encouraging me to continue refining and expanding Synpraxis, integrating new insights and feedback to enhance its efficacy and reach.


Peyton, the Protector, strengthens my sense of security in my work, acting as a shield against doubt and external criticism. This validation provides a foundation to build deeper trust in my abilities and the acceptance of my ideas within the intellectual community. Maximus, the Guardian, reflects the resilience and dedication demonstrated by winning the scholarship for my essay on Alan Watts in a metamodern world. This achievement is a reminder that perseverance through intellectual and personal challenges yields meaningful rewards, reinforcing my commitment to Synpraxis and affirming that my efforts are making a significant impact.


Ella, the Nurturer, reminds me to celebrate this achievement with self-kindness. I acknowledge the hard work and passion poured into my writing and research, engaging in activities that bring joy and relaxation, rewarding myself for the dedication and effort invested. Kai, the Innovator, validates my innovative ideas, encouraging further exploration of new concepts and projects within the framework of Synpraxis. This momentum fuels my creative endeavors, allowing me to expand the boundaries of my intellectual and artistic expressions.


Kaitlyn, the Innocent, helps me feel the joy and pride of this recognition, affirming that my unique voice and contributions are valued. I allow myself to fully experience the excitement and happiness of this accomplishment, acknowledging the journey that led me here. Phoenix, the Resilient, symbolizes the strength and transformative power of my work. This award is a testament to my journey and resilience, a reminder of my ability to rise and achieve through dedication and passion.


Shamani, the Guide, prompts me to reflect on the broader significance of my work and its impact on the world. I consider how this recognition aligns with my mission and vision, connecting with the deeper purpose of Synpraxis and the Compassion Collective, and seeing how they contribute to the field and the lives of others. Finally, Reina, the Visionary, always seeks new horizons and pushes the boundaries of conventional thought. Her presence ensures that I remain forward-thinking and innovative, constantly exploring new possibilities for Synpraxis and my personal growth. This visionary outlook encourages me to look beyond current achievements and envision the future impact of my work.
