Chios® is the product of spiritual guidance plus twenty years of research, development and refinement. The spiritual contact that was the genesis of Chios® provided carefully verified, accurate healing information from an authentic spiritual source (as opposed to one human being’s possibly flawed or distorted sense of inner “guidance,” knowledge borne only from the personal experience and interpretation of one person, or even “knowledge” merely the product of imagination—as with nearly all the other “modalities” that have sprung up since). The Chios® techniques were then perfected through rigorous evaluation, testing and careful refinement, over a period of twenty years. You may wish to read the full story of the development of Chios®, which is included in the Chios® book version 2.
The word “Chios” (pronounced Cheeˊ ohss) is from the language of the ancient civilization of Bactria. The closest English translation to this word is “life force,” although there is a fuller, richer meaning: Chios is the life-welling in all living things, as they strive upwards towards growth and towards the light and enlightenment. This meaning includes the growth of a plant upwards towards the sunlight, for example, or the struggle of a human being in the spiritual growth process, growing upward towards enlightenment. Steve Barrett (the creator of Chios®) had a past life in this civilization, during which he studied and used many of the healing techniques Chios® now includes (the full story is included in the Chios® book). The word “Chios” was chosen, for its beauty and relevance, as the name of this healing art.
