Bionet, as Biocentric Network was launched in 2012 with the first Bionet meeting at the University of Education in Riga. This meeting was the starting point for further interesting research and meetings or publications in the Bionet journal Biocentric Sciences. So far 3 issues (volumes) have been published. With the present issue, a 4th volume is now available. What is the purpose of Bionet?
The journal is dedicated to articles with Biocentric orientation and studies that use the methods of Biocentric Sciences, that is, in addition to the experience, as a scientific method, the qualitative, quasi-experimental, experimental research methods. Moreover, it is an interdisciplinary approach to which Biocentric Science subscribes. The foundations of this scientific holistic approach („complete science“, Stueck, 2023) are laid and promoted at the „International Biocentric Research Academy“ (IBRA) www.bionet-research.com. In the IBRA, biocentrically oriented scientists work in a network on various biocentric topics and projects, including the topic of Biodanza and science, or the topic of environment and diseases.
This volume 4 of the Bionet journal Biocentric Sciences deals with interesting contributions of a psychological meeting of 2022, hosted by colleagues from the Universities of Leipzig and Evora in Portugal. This meeting focused on the theme „New Horizons and New Paradigms in Health and Human Development“. This topic is especially important after the lived through COVID19 crisis and the ongoing martial and inhuman Ukraine war, but also the newly flared up Middle East conflict these days.
Why did we include this topic on this conference in our journal? Because they are biocentric contributions. They are biocentric contributions because they describe and explore resources and competencies necessary for achieving connection to life, with its most diverse forms. Allowing individuals and the systems in which they live to remain alive, despite possibly difficult conditions as we find them at the moment. For this is biocentric (bios=life, center=center), in contrast to anthropocentric views that examine and describe humans at the center, without their connection to other humans and to other life forms in nature. The contributions in this Volume 4 are biocentric in that they discuss the boundaries that exist stressfully that make it impossible for humans to connect with themselves, with others, and with nature. These so-called biocentric limits, so named in the model of relative biocentric health theory (Stueck, 2023), but also the competencies and resources, are thereby discussed in Volume 4 in 3 domains: for health, for education, and for aging.
Müller-Haugk (2023) examined this model and found that people who lose their connection to the source for health (limited harmony) also have too many biocentric limits (anxiety, stress, exhaustion). We hope the reader enjoys reflecting on the Biocentric Boundaries, and those on the Resources and Source for Health.
