ecession. There, I actually said the dreaded R-word. No one wants to be the bearer of bad news, no one, it seems wants to “say it” fearing that it somehow will make it more real. Small business owners don’t need to watch CNN to know that economic slowdown happens. The mood of the country is one of caution and an election year brings with it added uncertainty. However, when you take a broader perspective, and use a longer timespan as your yardstick, you can easily see that downturn is always followed by acceleration. The question, of course, is what is the best course of action in these times? The Japanese, who’ve been through more than a few cycles in the past 5000 years have some advice. Alvin Soon, who writes the Life Coaches Blog (lifecoachesblog.com), points out: The character for the word nin in ninja means ‘to endure’ or ‘to persevere’. It combines the character for knife on top of the character for heart, it means to go on despite having your heart under the knife! Thus, a ninja is somebody who perseveres with his heart’s intentions even under threat or pressure. This ninja philosophy is really simple to remember, and is summed up in 2 words: keep going. What does it mean to keep going? Continue to do business in ways that expand your market share. Find ways to increase your value to customers in ways that cost very little for you, or for them. Focus on being more efficient (waste-cutting)—and more effective. For instance, rather than mail a wasteful cardboard folder with a promotion kit, we now email our kits (saving paper, ink and postage). We’re combatting rising energy costs with more online subscriptions—we’re now proud to announce that more digital copies are read than printed copies (30,000 vs 25,000). See our full-screen, page-flipping edition at HolisticNetworker.com/magazine Someday we may have a “virtual wellness expo”, until then, we feel that it’s best to come out and experience your massage directly. However, now you can purchase your admission ticket online for only $4 (save $1), and bulk purchases are as low as $1/ticket in groups of 50. See WellnessExpo.net for details. Warm regards,

e never really know what is the most important thing we do in our lives. Maybe we offer a smile and some words of encouragement to a passing stranger and this helps them turn their life around and go on to do great things. We might not even be aware that this interaction had such a great impact on the world as we go about our daily lives. Or, it might be that one of our children, whom we nurture and love, goes on to make a big difference in the world. Perhaps our most important act was to have this child and to help them be the person they are today. When my grandfather was a little boy, he remembered how one day he saw his father become extremely angry at another man. He observed his father’s face become beet red and he saw his father literally shaking with rage. He thought to himself how silly it was to ever let yourself become that upset about anything. He vowed to himself that he would never do this. I remember my grandfather as a very calm man and I never saw him become extremely angry about anything. My grandfather shared this story with one of my brothers when he was young. It made a great impression on him as well and he, too, told himself that he would not allow himself to be an angry person. This brother has also always been very calm and even-tempered. My mother recently told me this story and I found myself thinking how profound my grandfather’s realization was. I marvelled at how perhaps the most important thing my greatgrandfather did in his life was to model how not to be. Ironically, by losing his temper, he helped others learn how to better manage the upsets in their own lives. Dr. David R. Hawkins, author of incredible books about consciousness, such as “Power vs. Force”, recommends that we live our lives like a prayer. Since we can never really know what the most important thing we do is at the time we are going through our lives, this makes a lot of sense to me. We have to trust that our actions are important and that they do make a positive difference in the world. Often it is the little things we do that matter most. Life is a lot like dominoes- one small movement can effect everything. I hope you will live your life as if every moment, person, and thing matters. For all you know today could be the day when you do the most important thing in your life. Even if you do the second most important thing, this will still be significant.

Love & Light, Felicia Weiss

HolisticForum What is CranioFascial Integrative Therapy? This therapy recognizes the importance of the integration of the fascial and CranioSacral systems and works to gently release restrictions that may be causing pain, or problems in the immune, nervous, digestive, endocrine or other body systems. Using a very light touch the therapist works to correct the origin of the pain. It has been used to successfully correct infertility, scoliosis, plantar fasciitis, ADD/ADHD, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, arthritis, and pain in any area of the body, including migraines. Frankie Burget is a licensed Occupational Therapist and Fellow with the American College of Wellness who has practiced in the DFW area for over 20 years. She has extensive training including Barnes Myofascial Release Centers and Upledger Institute. You may view her curriculum vitae on the About Us page of her website, www.windsongtherapy.com. Please contact her at 817571-8135 or frankie@windsongtherapy.com. Please see bodywork section for more information. What is Iridology and how can it help me? It has been said that the eye is the mirror of the soul, and that it discloses the different mental and physical conditions of the body; we generally speak of the ‘vivid clear eye’ of the well person, of the ‘anguishing, glaring eye’ of the consumptive; of the ‘broken eye’ of the dead-sick. Various nervous diseases are disclosed by the decreased mobility of the pupil; frequent disturbances of the sight point to diseases of the kidneys (diabetes), as does also the falling out of the eye-lashes. By analyzing the iris of the eye, it is possible to determine the condition of your body by reflex markings found in the corresponding fibers of the iris. Iridology analyzes the iris of the eye to determine the cause of your ill health, in what state it is in, how it arrived there, how to free your body of it, and most of all, when you have freed it. To help you find out the root of your health problem call Iridologist, Edna Craven, DC, BCNP, BCI at 972-256-0004 / dreecraven@earthlink.net (25 yrs. experience). 10% discount with this ad.

How do I become more passionate and joyful? We’re so easily distracted by technology and the business of life that we are becoming less and less in touch with our bodies. Bioenergetics helps us to be aware of our bodies, our breathing, our grounding so that we can make more conscious choices about what we want in our lives as well as what we don’t want.

What is that octogen-shaped image mean in Feng Shui?

How can CranioSacral Therapy help my life?

A foundation of all Feng Shui practices and analysis is the Bagua Map. This magical square contains the mystery and answers of the I Ching, a universe of information. Each sector of the octagon shaped Bagua Map, called a trigram, gua, or kua, has a magnetic direction, a number, a color, an element, a family member, corresponding organs body parts and body systems. Each also represents personality traits, businesses and industries, and is represented cyclically as these energies move in predictable directions over time. Feng Shui uses the Mysteries of the Bagua Map to analyze and diagnose a property to identify precisely what is affecting you, and how to make the changes that can open opportunities for a better life.

Whether your problems are structural, organic, emotional or neurological, this powerful therapy can facilitate your healing on all levels at once. Its many modes include gentle manipulation of the cranio-sacral system surrounding the central nervous system, including membranes of the skull to relieve any compressions that can cause a myriad of symptoms in the head; using energy via the fascia to restore structural integrity of the body and unwind tension patterns; and using energy combined with positioning and dialoguing to release stored energy from physical and emotional traumas. Best of all, most clients enjoy a much deeper relaxation than with massage.

Feng Shui specialist, Karen Ann Tompkins, has worked in hundreds of homes and businesses. Featured on channel 8, WFAA, Good Morning Texas, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, Dallas Woman and others, she also teaches classes and is a popular lecturer. She can be reached at 972-669-1595.

Sandy Hanne, R.M.T, has helped thousands of clients change their lives using CranioSacral Therapy. An advanced practitioner, she has studied directly with Dr. John Upledger, founder of the technique. 469-438-8634.

Why do I keep attracting certain types of people in my life? Do I have unfinished Karma or lessons with them? Past life regression is a wonderful way to connect with your eternal soul and learn more about recurring patterns and what to make of people who “show up” in your life. They may be in your Soul Group! Through hypnosis, you can access memories of past lives and gain insight into these patterns and people, which are key to understanding the lessons you are learning. And, once you learn the lesson, you don’t have to continue to repeat the situation! A good hypnosis candidate is anyone who is bright, inquisitive and open-minded. Just the fact that you are open to learning more about yourself helps you bridge the gap between your life today and the lives you have lived in other times and other places. After a past life session, one client said, I just feel lighter—as if a huge burden was lifted—I’m no longer afraid.” PJ Spur is a certified hypnotherapist, with advanced training in Past Life Regression and “Life Between Lives” Exploration, and was taught by the teachers who created Dr. Michael Newton’s curriculum for this important regression model. Please contact her at 972-822-4548 or e-mail: soulrevelations7@gmail.com. Learn more at: www.soulrevelations.com

Eating with the Season, Part II: Springtime

by Allison Ellis

If it’s good for you, isn’t it good for you all the time?

In Part I of our series, Eating with the Season, we discussed Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Nutrition principles, stating that the foods we eat all have specific energetic properties (cooling, heating, descending, dispersing, etc.) and can strongly affect specific organs. Eating foods with energetic properties that compliment the season of year and that support the organ of that season, year after year, has a direct impact on the quality of our life and even our longevity. Readers of the Holistic Networker already know that a body struggling to regenerate itself for decades on glazed donuts (even if they are “fortified with 10 essential vitamins and enhanced with green tea extract”) and microwave TV dinners (even if they are “low-fat, rich in omega-3s, and naturally flavored with essence of goji berries”) is going to have a more difficult go at it than one fed a real, whole-food diet. However, you may be unaware of the fact that foods considered wonderful for the body at one time of year would be strongly advised against or even considered harmful at another time of year.

In Tune with Nature

We also discussed in Part I that the human body, even if we are unaware of it, responds to the seasons just as other animals and plants. We identified similar seasonal patterns in trees and human beings: in autumn the energy of a tree retreats from the branches causing leaves and fruit to fall; and in winter, the energy is in its greatest retraction deep in the roots. According to TCM principles, the kidneys are the roots of the human body and where the energy is greatly concentrated in winter. During the winter, our activities and the food we eat should support and protect that energy storage to properly prepare us to move into the next season—spring. In the Chinese calendar, the New Year is not a fixed date, but is on the second new moon after the winter solstice, and this year it occurred on February 18. The timing of this celebration of the New Year is no accident and is actually quite appropriate…it is when the energy for the earth and all its creatures is getting ready to burst forth from its winter hibernation.

Springtime = Liver Time

While the focus in winter is on energy storage and the kidneys, the focus in springtime is cleansing and the organ is the liver. From a Western perspective, the liver is a brownish-red organ

that performs over 1,000 known tasks including filtering and storing blood, producing proteins, making and storing vitamins, metabolizing carbohydrates and lipids, storing nutrients, aiding in digestion, and filtering toxins.

tea, wake up in the morning and drink a glass of room temperature water with a squeeze of lemon to stimulate liver “chi” flow.

From a TCM perspective there is no separation of physical health and mental health, and every organ is closely associated with and affected by particular emotions. The liver, called the “seat of happiness”, is responsible for creative energy and “will”, and is strongly affected by anger. When a person is balanced and happy, energy will flow freely through the liver and body, furthering health. When a person is angry and blocked, or eating an improper diet, the energy of the liver will stagnate, causing a wide range of unpleasant issues including: frustration, depression, irregular menstruation, digestion problems, abdominal distention, lumps in the neck, breast, or groin, and many more. All to say...it’s a great idea to take care of your liver and this is the season to really nurture it!

Wow, those two words are the hype now! You see entire aisles and end-caps at the grocery stores with boxes of pills and powders to help you cleanse, find more energy, and improve your health.

Caring for the Liver

The liver naturally tends toward “heat” because of the tasks it carries out. When filtering blood, it stores excess toxins to protect the rest of the body, but when the burden is heavy, the liver itself can become damaged. “Dampening” and “heating” foods are to be avoided in spring. This list includes:, caffeine (excessive coffee and black tea), chocolate, sodas , alcohol, sugar, dairy, spicy and fried foods, iced drinks, frozen foods, soy and flour products, heavy and salty foods Foods that are light, cooling and detoxifying support the liver in spring, and this list includes: dark leafy greens such as chard, kale, mustard, collard, young spring greens and sprouts, watercress, dandelion , pungent herbs such as basil, fennel, rosemary, dill and bay leaf, lemon / lemon juice, young beets and carrots, flaxseed oil, white meats (except turkey which is heating to the liver), wide variety of legumes and whole grains, some fresh fruit (not to excess). Beverages that benefit the liver: green tea, dandelion tea, chamomile tea (to be avoided if you are allergic to ragweed), chrysanthemum

Cleansing and Detoxing

Cleansing and detoxing—more or less interchangeable words—have come to the forefront in alternative health care—and for good reason. Modern lifestyle and diet in particular are loaded with toxic opportunities which we seize in abundance. In many cases, the natural work of detoxing done by a diet rich in leafy greens and other cleansing foods just can’t get the job done. If fasting and/or cleanses are recommended, spring is the ideal time of year to do so. TCM practitioners will usually caution against extreme fasts and cleanses; and unless it is for a personal, spiritual pursuit, water-only fasts are not recommended. There are herbal formulas used in TCM to aid in liver cleanses (and other organ cleanses), and specific diets that are to be used during the cleanse to support the body. Depending on the person’s age, current health, and other factors, he or she may experience almost no side effects from a cleanse, some positive but unpleasant side effects that are a result of the cleanse (called a healing crisis), or if a person is already very weak, a cleanse can cause acute problems to surface which would require attention. As with anything that will strongly effect the body, it is wise to consult with a professional (a L.Ac. or O.M.D. are a few examples) who understands the cleanse or detox you want to undertake rather than go it alone.

...and what about summer?

Whether or not you choose to cleanse in spring, eating a diet rich in the foods from the lists in this article should have your liver “chi” happily flowing into summer at which time you should eat… “Ah, what to eat in summer?” you ask. Look in your next edition of the Holistic Networker for Part 3 of Eating with the Season.

“In my many readings with Carolyn, I’ve found her to be very accurate as well as understanding and compassionate.” - Cheryl Hickerson

Healing with Sound A Language of Light cellular healing session begins with Nancy Byers helping you to determine your heart’s desire for your life at this time. The goal is to align your heart’s desire with your soul purpose. During her expression of the Language of Light, Nancy is able to “catch” the sound current and to “tune into” the frequency of your soul, like a radio. This provides a sound-carrier wave for your intention to manifest. Nancy records her private sessions in order to provide you with a custom audio tape to aid you in manifesting your heart’s desire. Nancy’s sessions have helped people to overcome their fears, to alleviate depression, to relieve or diminish physical pain and to realize their dreams. The Language of Light is an invitation for us to access that deep heart space of knowing who we already are - multi-faceted, spiritual beings. Nancy is available for individual, group or couples sessions.

Rolfing® is a process for organizing the structure of our bodies so that we function more effectively. Over the years, our bodies react to trauma, both physical and emotional, by shortening and twisting. This intensifies our struggle with the force of gravity, which results in reduced freedom of movement, an increased likelihood of chronic pain, poor posture and a lessened sense of aliveness and self-esteem. During the basic Rolfing series of ten sessions, the Rolfer manipulates the muscles and fascia (a connective tissue) to free up those places where the client’s structure is constricted or held out of balance. The goal of Rolfing is to organize the client’s physical structure so that his/ her struggle with gravity is minimized. In addition to the physical changes of better balance, more freedom of movement, less stress, better posture and less chronic pain, Rolfing also affects your emotional, mental and spiritual realms. As you feel more supported by your legs, you view the world from a more secure position. You feel an increased sense of self-esteem, and the energy flow of your body is more opened and balanced.

Bioenergetic Analysis is a somatic psychotherapy based on a developmental, analytic approach. It utilizes active involvement of the body in psychotherapeutic interventions. In Bioenergetics, we work with grounding, breathing and character structure. Grounding relates to one’s emotional security and personality authority. When we stay in our heads and deny the experience of our bodies, we lose contact with our internal sense of support. Breathing vitalizes and energizes our bodies. Our breathing patterns reveal defensive blocks in the body through muscular constrictions. Breathing increases our capacity for feeling, our energy level and our access to pleasure. Character structure indicates the manner in which we limit the energy flow in our bodies and is indicative of the coping patterns we used to fend off the vicissitudes of growing up. Understanding our character structure gives insight into our defensive posturing, our personal histories and suggests a possible course of therapy. “Bioenergetic Analysis combines the work of the body and the mind to help people resolve their emotional problems”...Alexander Lowen, Founder

If you believe that you could benefit from either of these processes, or if you would like to experience in depth personal growth through a personalized combination of both disciplines, contact Chuck Lustfield, (214) 902-8900 • www.rolfingdallasfortworth.com

Chuck Lustfield, Ph.D. is a Certified Advanced Rolfer, has a M.S. in counseling, is a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Certified Bioenergetic Therapist. Rolfing® and Rolfer® are registered service marks

Do you seem to be getting ill more often, frequent visits to the doctors office, taking antibiotics or other pharmaceuticals more than you like? Do you have a chronic condition that worsens year after year, even though you are taking the latest recommended drug? Do the television commercials frighten you with ads about the latest pharmaceutical that has toxic side effects? Are your children out of control with a recurring illness? Has your child been diagnosed with add or adhd? Are school officials pressing you to medicate your child? If you answered yes to these questions, there is a better way -- it is called homeopathy. It has been proven to work for over 200 hundred years, with no toxic side effects, safe for the young and the elderly and the inbetween. Homeopathic medicines are the most economical form of health care we have today. Glenda has been in practice for over 20 years here in the metroplex helping and teaching families a natural approach to nasty conditions. Testimonials are available. Physician sponsored.

The Voice of Fate vs. the Voice of Destiny By Robert Ohotto

It’s human instinct to reach for the familiar, but the soul is here for experience, not security. A life without risk, loss, death, and pain is hardly vitalized. The more we resist the call to adventure, the more we fate ourselves to suffering of the worst kind. In such cases, the Universe will often deliver increasingly drastic events until we finally give up the ego’s hold on our soul’s schedule and allow the next chapter of our purpose—our Destiny—to unfold. It’s at this juncture of resisting our Divine timeline that many of us reach a threshold, often catalyzed by an outer fated event. We’ve come to know it as the dark night of the soul. Yet I always felt that this phrase was a bit of a misnomer because it’s the ego, our self-concept, which is actually being set adrift into the unknown. It’s here that a part of it must die so that something new from the soul can enter in. And it’s the ego that experiences the inherent fear of this change, not the soul. Thus I call this process of entering a transitional space where some new creative aspect of the soul is beginning to birth into your ego structure—which demands that your old self-concept reshape—the dark night of the ego! While we’re in the dark night of the ego, we’re each greeted by two competing voices: that of Fate (ego) and that of Destiny (soul). The former speaks through your fears, your past, your wounds, and the collective they that you worry about when you make decisions. The latter communicates through your intuition, dreams, synchronicity, Divine intervention, and the regrets that tug at your soul. Both continually compete to guide the choices you make during this vital time. At the crossroads of the dark night of the ego, these two voices essentially ask, Will you choose based on your fear or your highest potential? Decisions made from anxiety are actions of Self Fate because they fate us to events and circumstances designed to make us face what we’re afraid of. Thus, Self Fate choices are usually made to stave off survival worries or to keep the past alive, instead of letting our present vibrate anew with unknown possibilities.

Decisions made out of unknown possibility, however, are ones of Destiny; they lead to the actualization of your highest potential. They demand trust, risk, letting go of the past, being present, and manifesting the best of what’s inside of you without making any apologies. Destiny choices demand an allegiance to the soul. Discerning which impulse you allow to guide your life can be tricky, but it’s essential. What follows is an example of how each voice might speak to you during the dark night of the ego. As you read the scenarios, imagine yourself surrounded by each influence, then begin to recognize which voice you listen to most often. In fact, it would be empowering to spend some time discerning which one you’re giving allegiance to in the decisions you make—not only during the dark night of the ego, but every day.

Love

• Voice of Fate: “What on Earth are you thinking?! The last time you took a risk in love, you got hurt. You know that you only draw in women who abandon you. What do you think you’re doing by opening up your heart again? Come on, she’ll only break up with you for someone else who’s better looking and has more money . . . just the way they all have.” • Voice of Destiny: “Yes, you’ve had some painful experiences in your past, but you’ve grown so much! This woman really likes you, so you should give her—and yourself—a chance to try again. You know that you have nothing to fear now because you’ve learned not to abandon yourself. There’s a good chance this relationship could mirror that back to you! How will you know if you don’t try? This is the present moment of all possibility. Don’t you want to feel alive? Destiny is risk, so take it and open your heart.”

Starting Over

• Voice of Fate: “You can’t go back to college for a new career—you’re too old. Not to mention, what would everyone think of you on campus? How would you afford it?” • Voice of Destiny: “It’s never too late to learn something new. Think of how exciting it would be to attend class again! Imagine how exhilarated you’d be as you’re surrounded by young minds, full of fresh ideas. You can make the money work out somehow. If it’s meant to be, nothing can stop you!”

Your Job

• Voice of Fate: “You can’t leave this job. So what if you’re constantly stressed, unhappy, have ulcers, and can’t sleep because of it. You’ve been here for 20 years. What the hell else are you gonna do? And what about your pension and retirement? It’s too late to go start a business of your own, so get over that pipe dream.” • Voice of Destiny: “Have you not heard me talking to you through your body? This job is killing you! You’ve been here for 20 years, and come on now,

you’re only 45—there’s so much more you could do and pursue. What about your dream of opening a small shop, selling imported cheese and wine? You know so much about the subject and are so passionate about it—how could it not work? Take the early retirement package and go for it!”

Your Creative Idea

• Voice of Fate: “Look, you can’t be the next Martha Stewart, so why bother going forward with your idea for a vegetarian cooking show? Get over yourself, Betty Crocker! If you can’t be the best in your field, then why bother. You should just stop with this nonsense that you have any sort of original ideas. Trust me—it’s all been done before.” • Voice of Destiny: “You have something unique that you can offer through a vegetarian cooking show. You have to do this! Of course you won’t be the next Martha Stewart—you’ll be you! Just because you might not be the most famous person in your field doesn’t mean that you don’t have something wonderful to contribute to others. And you’ll undoubtedly contribute something special. It hasn’t all been done before because only you can do it your way—and that will shine out into the world.” Now, I could continue with examples of these two viewpoints for pages on end, but I think that I’ve given you enough to understand how they speak to you. Essentially, your highest potential is the voice of Destiny; it almost always demands that you risk and sacrifice for the unknown. Living in alignment with it is often full of surprises—some joyful, some painful—but when you embrace this path, you’ll know you’re alive! When you can say to yourself, I never thought I would ____________, what fills that blank space is your Destiny. This voice can also demand that you come to terms with something. For example, it might whisper in your ear, You know that you’re addicted to your entitlement as a victim and are a huge narcissist, don’t you? Are you ready to deal with that? Or it might say, You realize that your son is addicted to drugs. Are you ready to confront him? And perhaps you’ll hear, You know that your spouse is having an affair. Are you ready to finally admit and address it? In other words, coming to terms with something also transforms Self Fate into Destiny.

ai Chi is a low impact exercise that brings together movement, breath, balance, awareness, and serenity. As a martial art it involves the synchronization of breathing and thought with flowing movements of the trunk, arms and legs. These graceful movements have been choreographed over the centuries so that by the end of the routine the participant will have turned to face all four directions.

Spring 2008

Tai Chi

When assuming the postures the hips and knees are slightly flexed, the arms move through the air gracefully, while weight is constantly shifted between both feet. Often, balancing on one foot is held for several seconds while slowly turning to face different directions. This requires a dynamic ability to maintain balance, and the endurance to stay erect while moving to a new position. To accomplish this, the mind must be cleared of superfluous thoughts, and become focused on the precise location of each body part as they move through the forms. In this way, Tai Chi becomes a mental exercise in meditation.

Tai Chi follows the tradition of yin and yang with the unity of opposites embodied in the postures. Yin represents negative and yielding power, while yang represents positive power and action. According to tradition, one can not exist without the other. Although they are in opposition, they are simultaneously complementary. Yin and yang movement themes abound in Tai Chi. In some postures the arms are held close to the body in a defensive manner but then open up to lunge outward while turning to a different direction. Weight is constantly being shifted between the legs to advance or retreat. This philosophy of opposites in balance and harmony transcends the physical application of Tai Chi movements. It includes a way of thinking that can be applied to

By Dr. David G. Lancaster, DO, ABHM many situations, from social interactions to mental contemplation. An example of a social application is when two partners in a relationship have a disagreement. If one of the partners holds a righteous position that is unyielding, a lover’s quarrel is bound to occur that results in hurt feelings. If, on the other hand, each partner is willing to discuss their individual positions, a verbal dance may take place when the partners yield their position a little in order to gain something

else that they desire. In the end a balance, or compromise is achieved with the two opposing views. An inward example is the mental sparring one goes through when trying to make a difficult decision. The risk and rewards of the choices are contemplated until a decision is made. Each choice has both positive and negative aspects that need to be considered. Making the correct decision requires mental or spiritual centering that

allows the self confidence that the decision made is truly correct. Although several legends exist about the origins of Tai Chi, it is agreed that it developed approximately 500 years ago in China. Tai Chi has evolved through the generations into several different styles, each carrying the family surname of the contributor. They include: Chen (the oldest), Wu, Sun, and Yang. Chen has large movements that are either quick or slow. Wu is mid-paced with compact movements, whereas the Sun style has quick compact movements. Yang is the most popular with 108 to 128 slow, long movements. A short form known as the Yang 24 is widely practiced in the US and is also the style most researched in the medical literature. Yang 24 was standardized by the Chinese National Council of Sports and Physical Education of the Government of the People’s Republic of China in 1956. It was adopted to reduce the complexity and time required to complete the forms. Regardless of style, Tai Chi requires a focus of attention to the details of the movements that results in a heightened awareness of body to maintain balance and mental centering. Tai Chi can be practiced at any age but is most popular with the older population in China. It requires moderate intensity with estimated demands of 2.6 to 4.6 metabolic units (METs). A metabolic unit is a way to measure cardiac demands during activity. It is defined as the bodies’ use of 3.5 milliliters of oxygen per kilogram of oxygen per minute of activity. In practical terms, lying quietly equals 1.0 MET, standing equals 1.2-1.6 METs, walking 3 mph is 4.3 METs, and jogging is 9 METs. Because of the low to moderate MET range of Tai Chi, it is an ideal form of exercise for those with chronic cardiac conditions. Tai Chi offers an advantage over some exercise forms because it requires no equipment—only a small, quiet space to perform.

There are close to a thousand papers published on Tai Chi. Of these only a handful are well designed. The majority of higherquality studies examine Tai Chi’s effect on balance and cardiovascular outcomes. Fear of falling is common in senior citizens and can lead to activity restriction, decreased social activity, deconditioning, and even an increased risk of falling. Approximately 40% of healthy seniors aged 65 or older fall each year. Half of these result in minor injury, while 10% result in serious injuries requiring hospitalization. A landmark study that provided the first evidence that Tai Chi reduced falls was conducted by Wolf, et al at Emory University. This study randomly assigned 200 older adults into one of three groups: Tai Chi, computerized balance training, or an educational control group. After 15 weeks the Tai Chi group reduced the risk of multiple falls by 47.5%. There was also a reduced fear of falling and a reduction in blood pressure. In 2005, Li et al conducted a six-month randomized control trial to study fall reductions in senior citizens. Two hundred and fifty six people were randomly divided between a Tai Chi group and a stretchingexercise control group. At the end of six months, the Tai Chi group had significantly fewer falls and fewer injurious falls requiring medical treatment when compared to the control group. The participants also had a reduction in the fear of falling and improved functional balance. There are several randomized controlled studies examining the effect of Tai Chi on cardiac function. Young et al, found a reduction in blood pressure following 12 weeks of Tai Chi. Participants were randomized into either a Tai Chi or aerobic exercise groups. Both groups had improvement in blood pressure. However, the difference between the two was that the intensity of the aerobic group was much more demanding. Aerobic mid-exercise heart rates reached an average of 112 beats per minute compared to 75 beats

per minute in the Tai Chi group. The significance of this is that individuals with cardiac conditions, where intensive aerobic exercise is too dangerous, may be able to participate in Tai Chi and still receive similar cardiovascular benefits. Several other studies found significant effects of lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and a study at Harvard found an improvement of heart function in individuals suffering from congestive heart failure. There are many fine studios in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to learn Tai Chi. Most are offered in martial art studios and community centers. The most important consideration when choosing a teacher is your comfort level with the movements and the rapport with the teacher. There is mounting medical evidence that Tai Chi improves balance and has cardiac benefits. More studies are being conducted with respect to arthritis, osteoporosis, depression and concentration. Out of all the studies on Tai Chi there were very few complicating or adverse effects documented. Tai Chi is a safe and therapeutic exercise that only requires a small quiet space to practice. It is a low impact exercise that brings together movement, breath, balance, awareness, and serenity.

Author Interview: Gina Mazza Hillier Q. How does the EM, NM lifestyle apply to creativity?

A. For various reasons as we progress through life, our creative spirit can become shrouded, squelched, devalued, injured or ignored altogether. Forced to choose between our heart’s desires and everyday practicality, we often deny that creative part of ourselves or put it on a shelf to be tended to “some day.” Embracing the book’s 7-step path will enable you to uncloak your passionate nature. In time, you will become as prolific as you wish to be—in your art, in your heart, and in your life.

Q. What else will this process afford me?

A. Speaking from experience, I can say that it will give you a fresh, bold, fearless inner confidence. It will help you to dissolve resistances, release expectations, intend greatness and embrace immensity. In short, you will live larger, with more surety of purpose.

Q. What does the EM, NM process of awakening consist of?

A. The book (and our workshops) gently guide others through the 7 incremental steps: Intention, Daily Practice, Paying Attention, Turning Within, Working with a Mentor, Witnessing—and finally, Integration. Each concept alone is life-changing. Taken together, they are nothing short of transformational. By the time you have assimilated these seven concepts, your life will not look, feel or be the same.

Q. How do I begin?

Q. What is the meaning behind the book’s title?

A. Everything Matters, Nothing Matters is a provocative life mantra for moving beyond what I call a “sepia-tone version of life” and into a more vivid, multicolored existence. With prismatic living, we are in gratitude for all things. Everything Matters – every dewdrop, every triumph and tragedy, every emotion, every living being. Even the profane is sacred. AND, at the same time, Nothing Matters because from the highest, most loving perspective, there really is no good or bad,

right or wrong, us or them. Everything is a blessing. The beauty of this paradox is a simple blueprint for how to be “Alive” with a capital A.

Q. So the book discusses how everything is interconnected and the value of synchronicity in our lives? A. Yes, it reveals how to connect the dots in your life and—beyond that—how to recognize when the dots are connecting themselves.

Gina Mazza Hillier

A. One place to start is to work with the action items at the end of the book. They will serve to clear your creative channel and access realms of higher creativity, as well as lead you to a creative encounter with your life’s higher story. Good luck, have fun and know that you are loved.
