Sitting or standing requires the heart to work harder to supply the brain and organs with precious blood. ILCOR (The International Committee On Resuscitation) recommends that 6 principles be followed when placing someone in a recovery position.
The person should be in a lateral position with the head dependent, to allow free drainage of fluid.
It should allow the person to be able to be turned from their back, to their side, easily and safely.
The American Heart Association recommends the recovery position be used on any person who is breathing on their own and does not need CPR, but has an altered level of consciousness.
Having the person’s arm and leg resting in opposite positions will prevent the victim from rolling over to their front or back.

The only thing KCM actually stated above that they were doing was “sending a flight to Haiti.” They did NOT explicitly state WHO supplied these medical supplies, or even WHO paid for them. Kenneth Copeland, holding up a copy of the original edition of Angel Flight 44 at the 2007 KCM Minister’s Conference.
I wrote the book about KCM’s Hurricane Katrina disaster missions: “Angel Flight 44” (which is now off the market, except for used copies).
After that, according to my information, Glen Hyde’s airplane sat on the tarmac of Denton Airport in Texas gathering bird poop from August of 2006 until February 2010—it was not helping anyone (as Copeland had pledged).
Nevertheless, we now see KCM issuing a press release that is worded in such a way as to IMPLY that they (along with the five partners named) funded a multi-million dollar aid mission, when in fact the omitted details seem to reveal otherwise.
Of course, Kenneth Copeland could PROVE what they actually spent on this mission by ordering his staff to publicly release copies of verifiable receipts, bank statements, (and etc)…but don’t hold your breath.
On the other hand, compare KCM’s lack of financial accountability with biblical examples (e.g.
In 2006 KCM paid $13.3 million to its executive staff (who are mostly family members), out of a $100 million budget. Since Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” can we safely assume the Copeland family’s “heart” is in their own compensation MORE than in giving to those truly in need?

I ordered two of these bags and two of the companion bags for a son, nephew and their wives in the Los Angeles area after an exhaustive search of the numerous BOB's available. I spent a considerable amount of time researching various products on the internet and visited a few stores. I like that they include quality products, like the SOL emergency bivvys (that don't rip like most other emergency blankets).
Although many books have been written about the psychology of violence (as I learned during my days directing a program for court-referred perpetrators), Dr. The same dynamic of denial applies to entire nationsa€”and goes far toward explaining why the a€?nicesta€? and most restrained people sometimes pick up a gun. Listening to the Rhino deals not just with outwardly expressed violence, however, but with confronting and transforming archetypal violence (as imaged by the dream figure of the Rhino) manifesting from within the psyche. Following up on Jung's advice to translate emotions into images, Dallett writes about how a symptom or an illness, whether somatic or psychogenic (or both), represents an attempt at incarnation imparted by a spiritual force badly in need of translation from a literal source of suffering into an actively lived symbolic work.
Active imagination furnishes a primary Jungian tool for this kind of deep work, but as Dallett reminds the reader, Marie-Louise von Franz always insisted on the importance of completing at least these four steps: setting the ego aside, tending the images, reacting to the images, and putting the results to work in life (italics added). This belief may well be a candidate for what Dallett identifies in another context as a pathological identification with spirit: what Jung identified as inflation. In the chapter a€?Sedating the Savage,a€? Dallett presents many examples of how psychotropic medication represses unpleasant emotions while supporting artificial idealized states of happiness and surface contentment. While the matter of healing is a major theme of this book, the other is violence, and Dalletta€™s point here is that when violence is repressed it puts the individual and collective into grave peril.
Dallett returns our attention to the potency of active imagination as a tool to activate the psychea€™s potential for literal physical healing as well as psychological wholeness.
On the cover is a picture of a rhinoceros with two birds perched on its back, a classic example of a mutually beneficial biological symbiosis. Jungians are often the last bulwark in todaya€™s field of mental health practitioners, who remember the unavoidable reality and necessity of darkness and violence. We must develop an ego that is strong enough to contain the violent side of human nature, Dallett suggests, in order to live up to a€?what Jung saw as the millennial task (of) carrying the divine opposites of good and evil within the individuala€? (p.87). To contain the worst kinds of violence, Dallett suggests that we find a way to give expression to our destructive impulses without causing too much harm. The gist of Dalletta€™s argument, however, points towards incorporating more of the almost lost Jungian technique of Active Imagination.
The Rhino did not simply show up to heal the dreamer, but to inform her that she was to serve him. In Pat Britta€™s own words a€?During my early association with The Rhino, I could tell he wanted something of me, but I did not know what. In the alchemical laboratory of human life we are also mirrors for transformations on a larger scale, the transformation of the spirit in nature. Dallett reminds us that one-sidedness is one of our greatest dangers, be it the lopsided, misunderstood spirituality that denies the spiritual reality of violence or the overly rational slant of todaya€™s scientific community. We read in some detail here about the work of Jungian analysis, with special emphasis on active imagination, a method for bringing unknown parts of oneself into awareness and into connection with onea€™s everyday personality. Seamlessly, the book then turns to two major topics of special concern in todaya€™s world: the nature of violence and the use of psychotropic drugs.
While this discussion of violence focuses on the psychic sources of explosive violence, another section, on the use of psychotropic drugs, looks at contemporary uses of prescription drugs to damp down or cover up difficult, painful, unwelcome emotions (and violence). What we have in this small book is the fruit of a penetrating mind nourished by long experience of the psyche, and now offering us the essence of that experience, fueled by passionate concern over issues of todaya€™s world. Why is there so much violence around us - shootings in colleges, bullying in schoolyards, violent movies in theatres, graffiti in public spaces, news on television?
Janet Dallett is a Jungian analyst in her seventies, now living in Port Townsend, Washington. Britt had hundreds of Rhino dreams in the course of her nine-year analysis with Dallettt, which always focused on the meaning of his latest appearance. Britt truly grasped the Rhino, writing poetry about him, painting his picture, and even casting him in bronze so he could stand in her front hall, and her damaged heart healed. Dallett attributes Britta€™s healing to her commitment to the Rhino, a voice for what Jung calls the Self, the God within.
We are doing to the wild part of our psyche what we have done to the wild parts of the earth. May 31, 2014 by Tiffany Davis Leave a Comment Just about every house in the United States, and perhaps abroad, has a roll of Duct Tape. The doctor lays out the book by first telling why he likes duct tape, starting with its versatility. This section covers wound repair, bandage tape, adhesive bandages, cactus-spine removal, blister protection, wart remover and how to use it as a waterproof bag and pressure cleaner.

The first is that it assists in any situation where blood pressure is an issue, like shock.
When someone is unconscious or has an altered mental status in any way, supporting their airway becomes very important.
Several different types of medical conditions like seizures, heart problems, stroke, blood sugar problems and even trauma, can make a person nauseated and vomit. It doesn’t matter if they are unconscious or just don’t have the energy to maintain a consistent position, even if left alone this will keep them in the position that’s most beneficial for them.
It’s generally recommended that a woman in her third trimester lay on her side because their cardiac output is increased by an average of 27% when they do. These missing elements seem to actually be tacit admissions of yet another probable humanitarian aid fraud.
It details how Glen Hyde’s Douglas Super-DC3 airplane was often loaded with medical supplies furnished by McKesson Pharmaceutical. Once we openly documented Copeland’s broken promises, however, Copeland apparently found new “motivation” to get that airplane flying again; and the required FAA C-check and maintenance was recently performed to permit this Haitian flight.
In short, it would appear that KCM is merely trying to get $2.7 million worth of “humanitarian aid credit” through a publicity stunt, while actually spending a minuscule fraction of that amount to merely send the aid to the desperate Haitians.
Ezra and Nehemiah’s handling of funds donated to rebuild Jerusalem, and Paul’s financial transparency with the offering being sent by the churches to the poor saints in Jerusalem).

My husband and I purchased 2 of these bags and worked with the sellers to customize the bags to our needs. In my opinion, Outtagear had the most comprehensive collection of items selected for its intended uses. The bag is expensive, but the value for the money is totally reasonable when you consider the cost of each item and especially the time it would take to pick and buy all these items myself. Dallett's clearly and concisely written book offers thoughtful and sometimes surprising reflections, case anecdotes, and scholarly musings on violence as a spiritual problem.
It is easy for introverts in particular to skip the final step, but doing so severs inner from outer, contemplation from action. James Hillman has presented a similar critique, which can be summed up by the dictum: Silence the symptom and lose the soul. It is tiresome to be reminded that Jung believed active imagination to be the sine qua non of coming to terms with the unconscious. Oxpeckers or a€?tick birdsa€? sit on top of the rhino eating insects and noisily warn of approaching danger. It contains big ideas that deserve to be pondered and digested many times and reading this book is an excellent way to re-engage this material. Dallett reminds us that the etymology of the word a€?violencea€? suggests a close relationship between violence and God. Dallett makes a convincing case that our culturea€™s addiction to love, peace and happiness in effect creates senseless violence and that we must learn and find a way to teach our children, that the terrible side of life is not going anywhere. Dallett reminds us that, once a respectful and responsible attitude towards the unconscious psyche has been developed, the meditative dialogue of Active Imagination is the technique for the on-going and life- long task of engaging emerging images. Dallett grounds her reflections by allowing us a glimpse into the lives of two former patients, Pat and Teresa and she shows us the difference in attitude of these two women towards powerful inner animal dream figures.
Britt had this dream, but because she took the image seriously and engaged it for decades to come.
It is a potentially dangerous, primitive animal that has visited the dreams and fantasies of Ms. Dallett makes the analogy to the alchemical work, which Jung had translated into psychological terminology.
At first I thought his message was personal a€“ urging me to view life as whole, not with the limited eye of my rational ego.
Our collective ego is still trying to maintain its autonomy in relation to the larger mysteries while the power of the feminine in her own totality is pressing into consciousness.
This discussion is unusually clear and thorough, giving a readable and rounded picture of this form of psychological worka€”both its potentiality for healing and its dangers. And why are we so fascinated by violence that crime, killing, and war are often at the top of the news? I hear him pronounce: a€?If a thing is worth doing it is worth doing easily!a€? By this he means, according to Britt, that if a thing is worth doing it is worth taking the time to get to know it, so the thing can show you how it wants to be done. When connected to your inner program something beyond the ego comes to your aid, but when you try to go against your destiny you hit a wall.
Later she realized he wanted to reach a wider audience; he wanted to speak for life, all life, animals, plants and the earth itself.
We North Americans have naively idealized the Christian virtues of kindness and self-sacrifice, dangerously repressing our so-called negative emotions. We are sedating the suffering of body and soul with psychoactive drugs, unaware that pain is a reaction against something that needs to change. Interestingly my sister-in-law fell into some cactus while I was reading the book and I told her about the tape spine removal – worked like a charm for her on the smaller spines. Hubbard shows us how to use Duct Tape to create a tourniquet, occlusive dressing (an airtight and waterproof dressing for wounds) and how to make a CPR mouth barrier.

Whether you’re the victim of trauma or a medical condition, this position reduces how hard the body needs to work in order to sustain itself.
Your heart will then have to compensate by increasing your heart rate or blood pressure to maintain blood supply to the brain. Shock is simply a condition where the body’s tissues don’t receive enough oxygen and nutrients to allow cells to maintain their functions. When unresponsive, if you lay on your back, your tongue can relax and block your trachea (though it’s a myth that you can actually swallow your tongue and have it get stuck). Because it is so easy to place a person on their side, and because it helps and is potentially life saving in so many situations, recovery position comes in at #3 on our “Top 5 First Aid Tricks Everyone Should Know” series.
While it is true that the original “AF44” aid missions flew tens of millions of dollars worth of medical supplies to Louisiana, it is also true that NEITHER Kenneth Copeland NOR his ministry paid for ANY of those supplies. Hyde indicated back in 2007 that it would take about $20,000 to get the airplane legal and mechanically able to fly; we can add to that another $20-30k for fuel and flight expenses. If the Copelands start providing financials to the public now, it might create a precedent for transparency…and they cannot have that! Within this book, the author confronts AND refutes the hyper-prosperity teaching of Kenneth Copeland, Joseph Prince, Creflo Dollar, Jesse Duplantis, Leroy Thompson, Joel Osteen, and many others. We had previously put our own emergency backpacks together, but on opening them a few years later found the food moldy, the knife we had purchased broken, and the emergency radio very fuzzy and confusing.
I even spent time trying to price out these items separately on Amazon with hopes to save additional money by creating my own bag, only to find out that I could not beat their pricing.
Fortunately, I have not had to "bug out," but plan to test gear on future backpacking trips.
This seller has some other really top notch emergency bags for individuals, but this is perfect for my family. The Snugpak bag is really nice because you can roll it, carry it with different handles or carry it with the backpack straps.
Also criticized is the widespread habit of using meditation to get rid of (repress) the emotionally charged images flowing from the unconscious. I would like to see this insightfully expressed logic extended more often to the state of the oppressed struggling on every side and in all corners of the world.
The Indoa€“European root of the word a€?violenta€? is wei, which means vital force and one definition of the word God is a€?an immanent vital forcea€? (p.86). The reader is encouraged to reflect on seemingly counter-intuitive statements, such as a€?violence is the human spirita€™s protest against the enforcement of more goodness than it can stomacha€? (p.92).
This suggestion, although fundamentally right, may need more elaboration than this book provides, because the danger of infection by archetypal forces is high and not to be taken lightly. With reference to Barbara Hannah, Dallett devotes a segment of the book to a much needed review of what Active Imagination is and discriminates what it is not. We are informed on the front page that this book was written with contributions by The Rhino and by Dalletta€™s former patient Pat Britt. Dallett writes, a€?The Rhino has been the central figure in hundreds of Pata€™s dreams continuing still today. The alchemists believed that their work was to redeem God or the son of God, whom the alchemists imagined as a a€?fabulous being conforming to the nature of the primordial mothera€? (p.


We are encouraged to look at the place within ourselves where we remain a€?fundamentalista€?, where spirit is trapped in a literal, concrete enactment, physical illness or cherished convictions of the nature of reality.
The cover photo of a rhinoceros with two small birds casually perched on its back leads us into a text full of insight into both interior and outer worlds.
Only a profound understanding can put forth such subtle and complex ideas in such apparently plain talk. Britt had been so ill with bacterial endocarditis and kidney failure that she was expected to die in her early forties. However, if something is hard to do you should change your relationship with it, or let it go. We are suppressing the healthy masculinity of normally active children with Ritalin, either because the way we are living is driving our children crazy or because they do not conform to our expectations.
This is a real point to consider because in a panic situation we call all revert to a childlike state.
This allows for the page to easily be indexed by search engines that deliver content based on questions or definition requests. It can be caused by excessive bleeding, allergic reaction, infection, injury to your central nervous system, diabetic problems, and heart conditions. Being on your side will prevent the tongue from blocking the trachea and if it was previously blocking it before moving the person onto their side, gravity will do the job of moving the tongue out of the way to allow the person to breathe.
It compresses the inferior vena cava (the really big vein that supplies blood back to the heart). This is considerably MORE than the highly publicized 10% that KCM claims is being divided up among the MANY ministries they support. So we decided to go with the Bug Out bag to get a higher quality product that we could be confident with during an emergency.
There’s still plenty of room to put clothes in. Be sure to fill the water bottles before storing in your car or closet!
In my men's groups we always knew which men were at greatest risk for another violent incident: those who maintained that their anger was an aberration they had now overcome with penance and good intentions. An overemphasis on decency and virtue not only darkens the personal and collective shadow, it unconsciously identifies with divine goodness and thereby falls into inflation and self-righteousness.
These and other New Age maneuvers are enlisted in the service of propping up the happy persona that conceals the darker dimensions of conflictual psychic life. Yet Dallett goes farther: Psychiatric medication should only be used to contain severe symptoms, she argues, preferably in small doses and even then only temporarily.
Most of the examples of violence in this book break forth from the uptight middle class, where swings are removed from parks to prevent lawsuits. In Jungian thought, the Self, which is the psychological equivalent to the image of God, often breaks into consciousness violently.
Active Imagination is not guided fantasy nor is it art, but, following Hannah, Dallett sees Active Imagination as a creative function. 28), an earthy, fabulous, night creature, like the Rhino, equally life threatening and life giving.
We meet the rhino of the title as he first appears in the dreams of a gifted woman whom the author has known for more than 30 years, initially as her Jungian analyst. Rage, she says, is a natural instinctive response to a threat to the Self; violence is the human spirita€™s protest against the enforcement of more goodness than it can stand.
Hiking is moderately strenuous, includes multiple stream crossings and is approximately two hours, round trip.
This should help people first learning about preparedness to hopefully get some answers to their questions.
When any of these problems lead to shock, the victim can pass out, known as a syncopal episode. Thus, this book will help Charismatics and Word of Faith adherents to "detox" their doctrine in this area.
I hope they will never have to use these for other than delightful weekend camping, but I certainly sleep better knowing the kits are available should the worst happen. In the light of this observation, the missionary and the terrorist stand revealed as brothers-in-arms. Making a work of art, breaking a therapeutic impasse, or modifying a relationship are three of many possibilities for new forms of expression that liberate the archetypal power from remaining trapped a€?in mattera€? (in symptom or illness).
One can almost hear in popular a€?thinking positivea€? propaganda the voice of the family cheerleader castigating brothers and sisters for being so a€?depressinga€? as to discuss Dad's alcoholic violencea€”or on a national level, the violence inflicted by the precarious rule of empirea€”out in the open. Although the alarm should be raised about overmedicationa€”psychotropics are even being found in public water suppliesa€”I have known people with major psychiatric disorders for whom the advice to go off meds to do a€?psychological worka€? has been disastrous. Dallett pleads us to acknowledge that the terrible in human life is real and that only by confronting it, by taking it by its horns, do we have a chance of not being controlled by it.
The Rhino represents an instinctual mercurial principle in psyche that holds the power to heal or to wound. The Rhino becomes an imaginal companion for Pat Britt and Dallett speculates that his a€?dependable presence may compensate the uncertainty of a life in which death is always at handa€? (p.33). We follow the patienta€™s devoted inner work with the dream rhino, as he emerges into a living imaginative reality: mentor, opposite and guide, and we learn of the healing of her life-threatening physical illness.
In Britta€™s initial dream, the dream that is thought to foretell the course of therapy, a small rhinoceros charges her, but she catches him by the horn and holds on. If you can let it speak to you, and give it what it needs you will have an inner partner for the life that remains to you, however long or short that may be.a€? (p. Royalties, in part, go to the International Rhino Foundation, which helps to preserve the rhinoceros from extinction.
Kayaking is beginner level, and total kayaking time is approximately one hour.Good physical condition with NO recent injury or surgery to feet, ankles, knees, hips or back. It can also provide a foundational teaching on the subject of biblical prosperity in a manner suitable for all Christians. The backpacks fit both my husband, my 12 year old daughter, and myself as they are easily adjustable and have plenty of space for clothes and extras. I am thinking of people legitimately diagnosed with bipolar disorder who took similar advice from their gurus and ended up psychotic; one, a former student, is still homeless and ranting in the streets. As fantastic amounts of money continued to be funneled upward, the number of Americans living below the poverty line soars higher than ever before. There is a story about the late Edward Edinger in which someone asked him, a€?What is new in Jungian psychology?a€? He replied, a€?New? Then I am reminded of the story of Edinger and his comments about what is old and what is new in Jungian psychology.
Instead she asks us to recognize violence as an intrinsic aspect of the collective psyche, one that must find expression and that does have a purpose as when a€?the Self often breaks into consciousness in ways that are violent, primitive, even monstrous. The unconscious is a minefield of devastating, destructive potentials, but without venturing, and at times suffering this minefield, there is no way of getting to the treasures. In Pat Britta€™s case, it was the spirit released from a life threatening illness that took the image of this large, gravelly voiced Rhino. Finally we see that this work gives the former patient her independence of analysis and analyst.
If the reason for unconsciousness is anything other than shock, like a seizure, drug or alcohol overdose, respiratory problem, or blood sugar problem, this position is still the best way to situate them. The backpacks are also very comfortable (thick padding) and include a place for an internal water bladder. I have also known people with schizophrenia who could never hold down jobs or attend school without some kind of long-term antipsychotic medication. People still dona€™t understand the old.a€? Author Dallett might heartily agree with this sentiment. He speaks to our desperate post-modern world, saying we must turn away from our arrogance and learn again to live with the rhinos, the crocodiles, and all the natural, instinctive forms of life a€“ now, before they are gone, leaving us alone, alienated, and doomed to extinctiona€? (p.37). The stain on your carpet might be tough to get out, but at least you’ll be alive to be annoyed by its presence. We are a family that loves to camp and backpack, so the bags have a double use of something that is both practical and will greatly SIMPLIFY our packing for camping. What's important in such cases is to prescribe a correct and accurate dosage not only to contain extreme symptoms but to make psychological work possiblea€”work that includes dealing with the psyche's responses to the need for medication. If the Self in such sufferers is enraged, social constraints and injustices give it excellent reason to be, for as Martin Luther King pointed out long ago, a riot [like a symptom] is the language of the unheard. In her latest offering she reanimates many penetrating insights from Jung and reminds us that they are as cogent and urgent now as when Jung first presented them. In response to her dream, the woman took up the task of relating to the unconscious through art, dialogue with the rhinoceros and study of dreams. The remarkable dreams and healing experience of this dreamer make up one part of this rich book and serve to illustrate and put flesh on the abstract bones of some of C.G.
But the growing data about the impact of a deep alignment of psyche and body reveals that we have merely scratched the surface of that mysterious intersection. A connection and engagement to the depths of the psyche that stimulates powerful healthy growth and that transforms body as well as psyche is unhappily still on the fringe of accepted consensus today, this in spite of what depth psychologists, in addition to Jung, have intimated or stated for over one hundred years.
