“Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius
– and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.”
~ Albert Einstein

Building Bridges: Integrated Public Policy, Criminal Justice & Judicial Systems
Our current legal system has proven itself to be wholly ineffective and actually serves to perpetuate the very behaviors it has been set up to curtail.  We must look for higher solutions to govern ourselves and take personal responsibility for what we have created in order to move through these times of tremendous change with greater ease.

Building Bridges offers consulting services designed to create a more effective, criminal justice system through the application of Natural Law principles and ideals.  By viewing these issues as systemic "dynamics" and seeking to see these challenges through the lens of a bigger picture we can identify specific causes and policies that perpetuate dysfunctional behavior.  Our consulting services clearly delineates how our current societal structure and paradigms actually fuels the creation of crime, violence and personal dis-empowerment and offers a concrete blueprint for change. Our consulting model uses the Charon System of Integration as the template and has 7 distinct areas of assessment that is used to create the new systems ready for implementation.  Once the new system has been implemented we offer advisory services that monitor, evaluate, coordinate and share best practices for policy setting and continue to offer guidance and solutions to maintain positive change. 

Barbara Bailey
MS Integration Consultant and Director of the Integrated Public Policy
and Criminal Justice Department

Barbara's passion lies in working to bring a more holistic perspective to the field of Criminal Justice. She earned her Master of Science degree with a concentration in Criminal Justice from Boston University. She is currently in the dissertation stage of her doctoral studies, and at completion will earn a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice. Presently she is a Program Consultant and Evaluator, and works in higher education as an Adjunct Instructor teaching criminal justice to a diverse student population.

Prior to that, she spent much of her adult life as a criminal justice practitioner, working as a Deputy Sheriff. Barbara's personal journey began more than 15 years ago when she recognized a need to balance her Mental side with her Spirituality and discover her truth. She has studied many healing modalities and earned many certifications such as Reiki Master/Teacher, Theta Healing Practitioner, and Hypnotherapist. Barbara came to the realization that there is a much "Bigger Picture" to life and its dysfunctions and challenges. Her ability to combine and apply this bigger picture construct with esoteric information to the criminal justice system has opened up new ideas and ways of working with the "criminal mind" and our criminal justice system.

Barbara brings an integrated approach to the field of criminal justice with her ultimate goal to focus on being a part of a movement that shifts away from duality in the criminal justice system, "us against them" and bring to light the fact that the criminal justice system merely represents the collective shadow. As we all deal with our own "darkness" and heal ourselves, we heal the dysfunctional systems and bring light to the fact that we are all one. From her perspective, it is now time for the old belief systems holding the “us against them” mentality to fall away, and to be replaced with a belief system that does not blame but rather focuses on seeing the bigger picture, taking responsibility and applying new ideas based in quantum research to creating the new systems that will sustain us through the vast changes happening on the planet today. Barbara has been inspired by many criminologists, including Richard Quinney, Harold Pepinsky, John Fuller, and others who have worked to bring a more peacemaking perspective to the field of criminal justice.

www.geometryofplace.com ~ Peter Champoux, Author of Gaia Matrix – Arkhom and the Geometries of Destiny in the North American Landscape.

Gaia Matrix reveals the harmonic patterns of biogeologic consciousness that underlie North American History, culture and spiritual evolution. These discoveries show the extraordinary degree to which humanity responds to the living intelligence of the Earth. In 1993 Peter Champoux discovered a region wide geometry in the geographic and spiritual profile of the Northeastern United States . Centered in the hills of western Massachusetts , Gaia Matrix is a revelation of sacred landscape that spans the continent. The sites and lines within the geometry show patterns and cycles of human culture, history and spirit. Cycles have witnessed the outbreak of American Revolution, westward expansion, the rise of America as a world power, and the merging wisdom culture –the next cycle of American evolution. Discoverer of the Arkhom geomatrix, and related landscape patterns across the continents, Peter a stone Mason, award winning sculptor, graphic artist and visionary, is a longtime student of geo sciences, world religions, and sacred geometry.
