Name of creator
Vivaxis is a term coined by Frances Maude Nixon (1910-1984), a Canadian woman who lived on Thetis Island, B.C. and spent almost thirty years conducting pioneering research in this field. Vivaxis derives from the Greek "life" and "centre," and it refers to a unique energy flow that connects an individual's energy field or etheric body with that of the Earth at the time of birth. The link functions as a two-way connection between the individual and place of birth, and the relationship remains even as the individual moves. Each person's circuit has a unique individual frequency. The Vivaxis connection can be harmed or distorted by chemicals, electromagnetic fields or even lightning. It is believed that a disturbed Vivaxis connection can make an individual ill. But once restored, it can keep a person healthy. To carry out Nixon's research and, more broadly, Vivaxis research, education and training, the Northwest Magnetics Research Society was established in 1970. It continued until 1974 when at a special meeting in April, it was superseded by the Vivaxis Energies Research Society. Constitutional changes in 1976 resulted in a name change to Vivaxis Energies Research International Society (V.E.R.I.S.). The Society was registered with Revenue Canada as a charitable organization in January 1977. V.E.R.I.S. operated a number of chapters in various locations in British Columbia, including Vancouver Island, Lower Mainland and the Interior. In California, several area coordinators were throughout the Bay area of San Francisco, and a chapter was established in Australia. V.E.R.I.S. continued to exist until 2001, at which time the affairs of the Society were wrapped up. When the Society ceased operation, the bulk of the learning materials were transferred to the Alternative and Integrative Medical Society (AIMS) at the University of British Columbia.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of a copy of the society's constitution (1976), newsletters (1970-1997), correspondence (1973-1985), publications (1969-1984), and audio and video tapes and films (1975-1983).
Immediate source of acquisition
The V.E.R.I.S. materials were donated to the University of British Columbia by D.N. Pettipas who served as Society president from 1993 to 2001.
