Dr. Clarke discovered, revived, and revised a method of writing and reading first developed and used by the ancient Greeks. The text is written from right to left on one line and left to right on the next. Reading such a text requires bilateral eye movements, which have a calming and healing effect on the mind, particularly one that has been interrupted by trauma or dissociation. Mental health professionals who have used Dr. Clarke’s Empowerment Script with clients have found extremely positive effects.
Dr. Clarke lives in Maryborough, Australia, where he and his partner Adrian are restoring an historic factory as an arts and culture centre. They also run an enterprise center that helps people transition to productivity. Dr. Clarke served on the National Trust W-class tram committee, which saved the Melbourne W-class tram fleet.
