I remember initially meeting Dr. Davidson in February of 2014, in Philadelphia, at a Cervical Cranial Mandibular Restoration course. It was his first PRI course. He has attended 20 PRI courses since that date and has helped countless students and individuals understand the human behavior from an adaptative, evolutionary and survival perspective. After looking at his material for his presentation on “The Resistance as Reference, and the Loss of Authentic Environments” I know anyone who has an interest in “authentic elements of resistance” will not want to miss his perspectives on how to recognize it and benefit from it. “With the loss of resistance built into our environments, many of us are losing a sense of purpose, have no clear direction in life, and feel unsatisfied’. Pat is an open –minded, liberated, inquisitive and receptive individual with a background that makes him highly qualified for this symposium and topic. And I can still remember his 2014 symbiotic smile and look forward to seeing it again in 2018! Learn more about the 2018 Interdisciplinary Course here.
