Author - Elmer Green PhD
Dr. Green's past Research combined the disciplines of Autogenic Training and biofeedback Training, and included physiologic studies of yogis in India (1974). A video documentary of these investigations, filmed in the United States and in India, is called Biofeedback: The Yoga of the West (Elda Hartley producer, Hartley Film Foundation, Cat Rock Road, Cos Cob, Connecticut, 06807).
With wife and colleague, Alyce Green, he authored a number of papers
and wrote a book, Beyond Biofeedback. He is a member of several
professional societies and advisory boards. For 20 years he and
Alyce lectured and conducted workshops on the Theory and Practice of
Biofeedback Training for Psychophysiologic Self Regulation, in the
United States, Australia, Canada, India, Great Britain, Holland, the
Philippines, and the Soviet Union.
In recent research (a study of psychophysics and psychophysiology
during a form of Tibetan meditation), he and his colleagues found
anomalous electric-field effects in and around the bodies of
well-known "healers." A video documentary of this phenomenon, made
with the cooperation of healer Mietek Wirkus, is called, Bioenerqy:
A Healing Art (Peter Walsh producer, Media Production Group, 360
Highland, San Francisco, CA 94110).
