My primary objective for becoming the editor (June of 2005 – May of 2006) for ENERGY – The Newsletter of the American Polarity Therapy Association, was to provide comprehensive news, in-depth articles and promote discussion of Polarity Therapy by publishing diverse points of view.
As I said in my last letter from the editor, I was only able to partially accomplish these objectives due to my inability to actually gain access to the issues, discussions and decisions that were being made by the APTA board of directors. At that time, I called for a new protocol for reporting news that would insure that the real news, as it was happening, would be made available to APTA members.
Since it seemed that there was a structural hindrance to accessing this information, I proposed a plan that would rectify this lack of access by assigning a reporter, who would be on the email list of the APTA board, and therefore have access to the ongoing flow of information. That person could then summarize the news of our association and report it on a quarterly basis in ENERGY, and perhaps also, on the APTA website. After many months of delay, the board eventually voted down the proposal.
After several letters to the editor about this issue, and in our opinion, the lack of real news in APTA’s ENERGY Newsletter, it became apparent to us that the only way to get more information to those who practice and who have an interest in Polarity Therapy was to establish an independent source of news and commentary.
In addition to publishing news submitted to us primarily from North America, we wish to receive and publish news about Polarity Therapy from around the planet. If you know of a Polarity therapy training, workshop, event, conference, announcement, issue affecting practice or right to practice or anything else that constitutes local, regional, national or international Polarity Therapy news, please send it to us.
If you have opinions concerning the doings, (or the lack of them), of Polarity Therapy, please send us an email. Pictures, graphics, charts and drawings are also welcome and appreciated.
All the best,
Richard Chandler, PTP
