Dec. 15, 2007 - PRLog -- Sydney, Australia -- After many years of practising superpsychology - a cutting-edge, reexperiencing-based therapy - Raymond Lane found something unexpected happening: he was using his left hand more often than normal in performing daily tasks. He realised that his natural ambidexterity had been restored by the therapy that he originated. So he decided to apply this newfound ambidexterity to art to see what would happen. The result was not only the development of a unique ambidextrous drawing system - that he calls Ambi Art - but also a proof that therapy can rewire the brain.

Ambi Art is a rhythmic drawing method employing both hands - used sometimes simultaneously and sometimes alternately. Its qualitative differences to the common one-handed drawing method can now answer some questions about the brain and human evolution. The first question - which is related to split-brain research - is why do humans tend to be strongly left or right sided, and, correspondingly, right or left brain hemisphere dominant? Ambi Art uses both brain hemispheres, peripheral vision, is best suited to drawing shapes, and its enjoyment comes from performing the art. Contrastingly, one-handed drawing uses predominantly one brain hemisphere, focused vision, is best suited for detailed work, and the enjoyment comes after the art is completed. In short, Ambi Art has expanded characteristics, while one-handed drawing has narrowed characteristics. This broadening of perception and physical ability related to Ambi Art is a function of greater brain access and increased consciousness attained as a result of superpsychology therapy.

The second question is why an ambidextrous drawing method was never developed earlier in human history. Lane says that this was prevented by a build-up of nervous tension in people's Central Nervous Systems during upbringing. Humans learnt long ago to avoid the resolution of psychoemotional pain - which causes this tension build-up, and consequent dominance in one side of the body and brain. Humans also suffer a lack of natural rhythm (particularly in the developed world) and minor health and behavioural problems (all to various degrees depending on the amount of tension accumulated). When the tension is resolved in therapy, previously repressed natural qualities - like ambidexterity, ambilaterality, rhythm, good health and more normal behaviour - are automatically restored. Traditionally, it has been hard to prove any benefits of therapy. But now Ambi Art provides the practical proof that the majority of these qualities have been restored and that the brain has been rewired back to a normal state.

Lane sees Ambi Art as both a useful drawing method and a healthy brain exercise. This is because it produces a slight sensation of exhilaration that is characteristic of a release of endorphins (chemicals responsible for the sensation of pleasure and pain, and for maintaining good health). It is the same sensation that occurs with jogging, dancing, or listening to music. But one-handed drawing lacks the same sensation. So Ambi Art's regular practice may help strengthen the fibre connections between the brain hemispheres in the young, and stave off mental deterioration - like Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease - in the elderly. Looking to the future Lane said, "As this type of therapy progresses and infuses into society, more people will not only become healthier, but will also become ambidextrous and ambilateral, possess a greater sense of rhythm, and be able to develop new creative skills."
