Robert D. Waterman developed Noetic Field Balancing from his experience as a
student at Quimby Center, thirty years of clinical experience, and academic work
as founder and president of Southwestern College. The basis for Noetic Field
Balancing evolved out of the technique of aura balancing. Dr. Neva Dell Hunter,
founder of Quimby Center, developed aura balancing from the healing work of
Phineus Parkhurst Quimby and material gained through her inspirational work with
John-Clark McDougall. Dr. Waterman met Dr. Hunter in 1967 through a mutual
friend, Muriel Engle. At the time of their meeting,
Dr. Hunter explained that aura balancing is a form of spiritual therapy in which
the practitioner works directly with the energy fields surrounding and
penetrating the physical body. It sounded good to him. He agreed to a session.
At the time, his exploration of consciousness-oriented psychologies helped him
trust the process. The impact was dramatic. "I experienced energy
sensations and feelings moving in and around my physical body, and a mysterious
resolution of my inner conflicts." Afterward, he felt clear, centered, and
ready to complete his senior year.
Apprentice to a Mystery
After graduation, Dr.
Waterman headed for Dr. Hunter’s school in New Mexico. He was excited about
this dramatic demonstration of therapy. Conventional therapies had seemed
lacking, and aura balancing represented to him the missing link that joined his
experiences, spiritual training, and academic studies into one model. He needed
to discover how it worked. Later, he added the dimension of the noetic field
as a means to further account for role of consciousness, and to incorporate the quantum
model of David Bohm.

Mirror, and Stephen Broscoff who developed a body-centered approach. As an
apprentice and colleague, he worked and lived with this team from 1968 until Dr.
Hunter’s death in 1978. After this time, his approach to balancing was
influenced by his study and practice of "soul transcendence," with
John-Roger Hinkin. John-Roger, founder of the Church of the Movement of
Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA), adapted aura balancing to work with a
spiritual consciousness that he called the "Mystical Traveler." The
techniques has furthered evolved through his experience and study of the ancient
For Dr. Waterman, Noetic
Field Balancing continues to be an unfolding mystery. "I am a perennial
student and a true apprentice of that mystery."
