Science & Spirituality Speaker Series:

How To Develop a Multidimensional Mind, Cultivate Truth Sensing Mastery, and Minimize Error-Prone Thinking by Daniel Mauro


here is no shortage of content to be found in the arenas of modern spirituality and personal growth. We are inundated with teachings from thought leaders, spiritual gurus, and new age pioneers. Why then is it still so difficult to discern true vs. false, deceptive vs. accurate, propaganda vs. genuine knowledge? For starters, the rise of social media, youtube videos, and search engine convenience has fundamentally robbed us of our ability to accurately discern what’s what. Bombarded with information overload from the incessant digital stream, we no longer carry sufficient mental capacities (such as focused attention, memory recall, strategic filtering) to evaluate the veracity of incoming data. Worse yet, subsets of the populace continue to be indoctrinated into conventional dogmas of society, including formal education, mainstream media, organized religion, government “studies,” politics, and corporate advertising. As such, it is essential that we take a step back and begin to cultivate and “relocate” those hidden potentials of our mind so we can more masterfully sequence, organize and filter the informational challenges of our modern lives. In this 3-week lecture series, we’ll delve into the core facets of empowered cognition, truth sensing, and spiritual discernment.

Lecture 1: “Cultivate a Multidimensional Mind and Think Like a Master.” Discernment is essential in all aspects of our lives. Everything from maintaining friendships/romantic partnerships, doing scientific research, and making wise business decisions, to getting the best job, eating the right foods, and finding a great counsellor/healer requires that we make discerning choices to honour our personal needs. Regardless of the knowledge source, it’s always necessary to evaluate and filter the quality and accuracy of incoming information. This workshop offers a powerful model for cultivating multidimensional thinking and truth sensing capacities so that we can be more empowered in a world of information overwhelm. Saturday, April 29 @ 7 pm Lecture 2: “Shattering 12 Menacing Myths of New Age Spirituality.” With the discovery of Chiron in 1977 we stepped officially into the New Age of spirituality, healing, and the search for enlightenment. Much of this “new age” is actually a recycling of ancient wisdom traditions like astrology, Buddhism, yoga, meditation, and sound healing. Unfortunately, this modernized approach has brought with it some problematic mindsets, practices, and belief systems. At its core, New Age spirituality may be characterized as subjective, superficial, and self-absorbed. To that end, we’ll reveal 12 harmful MYTHS permeating the New Age movement. Saturday, May 6 @ 7 pm Lecture 3: “A Modern Reincarnation Study: Exploring Past Lives of Seven 20th Century Pioneers, Thought Leaders, Intellectual Icons.” Reincarnation and karma involves a variety of lofty cosmic laws and spiritual principles. In this lecture, we’ll trace the past lives of 7 prominent individuals (from the last century) with a view to outlining key reincarnation principles and “quasi” karmic laws. As a human being becomes more evolved, their soul takes on advanced spiritual qualities and their planetary service is increasingly impactful for humanity’s evolution. Saturday, May 13 @ 7 pm This 3-Session Spirituality Speaker series takes place on three consecutive Saturdays: April 29, May 6, May 13, from 7 to 9 pm. $20 per lecture or $48 for the whole series. Kindly register your space at: OR purchase your discounted tickets in advance at See ad on the cover.

Energy that heals and rejuvenates Georges Lakhovsky & Nikola Tesla PolarAidTM supports well-being with natural energy. It restores the body’s disrupted energy flows that create illnesses and health issues. By holding PolarAidTM disc in your hand, you become a supreme healer without a single day of training.

SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS WITH: “I was working with the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic devices that go beyond today’s conventional medicine for thousands of years. But PolarAid impressed me by its ease of use and efficiency. It is a small device with no supply of electrical power, but it achieves fantastic effects and results in a person who uses it. Many years of my learning and efforts have been brought into question when I realized that every person, without a single day of training, with PolarAid in his/her hands becomes the most powerful, supreme healer. PolarAid proved to be extraordinary within my gynecological practice. I advised my patients to sit on PolarAid while drinking coffee and talking with their friends. It was a very satisfying therapeutic time to resolve all sorts of their problems, ranging from the most banal vaginal infections to more serious gynecological problems. At the same time they would get rid of some persistent urinary symptoms or annoying hemorrhoids and their painful menstrual cramping would disappear. Using the same procedure, sitting on a disk or holding PolarAid between their legs while lying down, the men would recover their prostate, improve their libido and their sex life. About the author: Dr Dino Tomic, Specialist in Gynecology and Obstetrics for more than 20 years. He deals with exploring other treatment options beyond the limited domain of conventional medicine: quantum and bioresonance medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture and energy techniques.

Foreword Clarion Review of Redemption

This review of Redemption – soon to be a movie – is right on!!

An admirable command of language brings to every scene a striking visual clarity.


lost manuscript from 1975 reveals the depths of a sensitive man’s soul in this pondering look at life nearing a crossroads. Not until 2011 did Ian Prattis pick up his heartfelt novel again, a book he titled Redemption. Set in the Hebrides off the northwest coast of Scotland, an unpretentious locale steeped in regional culture, this story focuses on an eccentric yet down-to-earth protagonist named Callum Mor. Subject to individual understanding and loaded with the symbolism often found in parables, the book alludes to more than what is openly stated in the narrative. Like all interpretive fiction, Prattis’s writing will communicate a different meaning to anyone who attempts to analyze his carefully crafted words. Short but powerful, Redemption may leave a person wondering whether pieces of this tale were intentionally obscured, for the plot covers an extensive period of time from Callum Mor’s childhood to maturity.

First Saturdays – Day of Mindfulness 5pm – 8pm Contact 613 726 0881 • An admirable command of language brings to every scene a striking visual clarity. In this descriptive passage, the devastated mood surrounding Callum Mor’s father can be seen and felt in contrast to the harsh elements of nature: “In the wake of the gale, the day had produced a hazy sunlight that made the reeds in the marsh glimmer, but the unexpected heat in the day could do nothing to warm the cold, vacant, deadness that now enveloped Andrew.” As Callum Mor ages, he slips into abject loneliness and succumbs to alcoholism before he goes through a positive reawakening. Gentle, with a poignant affection for animals, this cosmically aware lover of God’s creatures seems to collapse under the brutality of man’s instinct to inflict pain. To a certain degree, this somewhat typical view of morality confronting immorality causes the novel to fall into a vague realm of timeless storytelling for any indefinable, poetic piece without a specific purpose. This does not detract from the literary quality, but anyone seeking an indisputable message will not find it here. In this scene, winter emerges as a villainous character: “The wind from the north soughed softly along the shore but froze any man it gripped. The cold stole into every door and numbed the hands and minds of those unprepared for it.” Ian Prattis, Zen Teacher, Professor Emeritus, peace and environmental activist, was born in the UK. He has spent much of his life living and teaching in Canada. His moving and eye-opening books are a memorable experience for anyone whoenjoys reading about primordial tendencies. Beneath the polished urban facade remains a part ofhuman nature that few want to acknowledge, either due to fear or simply because it is easier todeny the basic instincts that have kept us alive on an unforgiving earth. Prattis bravely goes therein his outstanding literary work.” Julia Ann Charpentier AVAILABLE AT and Autographed Book - Order Through:

Three Ways to Balance Your Life


hen your life seems hectic and out of control and you’ve got endless demands tugging at you from all directions, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, fatigued and just plain stressed out! Believe it or not, balancing your life does not mean having to make massive changes. You don’t have to quit your job, abandon your family and escape to a remote retreat in order to feel peaceful and happy. In fact, true balance is something that starts WITHIN YOU first and foremost - no matter what else is happening in your outer life circumstances. Following are three simple ways to begin building a greater sense of inner peace and harmony: 1) Quiet time. One of the first things we tend to sacrifice when we’re busy is our personal time. Instead we devote all of our energy and attention to caring for others, multi-tasking, meeting responsibilities and “being productive.” Over time this depletes our energy and we begin to feel more and more burdened by our responsibilities. Just a few minutes spent sitting quietly in meditation or reading a book can do wonders in transforming stress into peace and happiness. 2) Self-care. Beyond making time for things you enjoy, there are other ways to nurture and love yourself on a daily basis. Getting a full 8 hours of sleep (or as much as you personally need) is an excellent start, as well as eating nutritious food, exercising daily and speaking lovingly and kindly to yourself. 3) Flexibility. Did you know that one of the biggest causes of stress is rigid expectations? We all do it from time to time; get a mental picture of how our lives “should be” - and get really annoyed when our outer circumstances don’t cooperate! One of the biggest gifts you can give yourself is a flexible state of mind. In other words, learn how to detach from unrealistic expectations and go with the flow.

These inner changes can make a dramatic difference in your state of well-being, but you may also want to examine your outer life circumstances and see if there are other small changes you can make to help support your inner work. For example, you might choose to let go of certain obligations that are no longer meaningful or enjoyable to you. Just because you agreed to host weekly meetings for a support group three years ago, doesn’t mean you have to keep doing it forever - especially if it’s become a drain on your time and energy! Be willing to let go of any activities that no longer complement the lifestyle you desire, and you’ll create a space for greater fulfillment, joy and peace. Moira Hutchison Mindfulness Coach, Tarot Card Reader & Energy Healer 613.432.1239 Have you ever noticed that when we feel stuck - we become the expert of everything that does NOT work... The truth is that in order for a problem to exist - the solution must also exist! To get started feeling *unstuck* hop on over to and sign up for Step One of “The Letting Go Process” - it’s free!!

GRATITUDE: The Key to Health and Happiness


ratitude is unconditional appreciation for everyone and everything. To be grateful is to feel appreciation for all that you have and all that you receive; for all the gifts of life. Just think about the times you've felt really grateful for someone or something. How did that feel? Wouldn't you like to feel that way all the time? When you approach life from a place of gratitude, your entire life will be a profound experience of transformation. When you respond to events in your life with gratitude, seemingly negative events are viewed differently. You begin to see them as gifts and special wisdom teachers. What other response would you have to a gift and special wisdom teacher than gratitude? There are a lot of programs and methods to develop gratitude. A popular method used by many is to keep a gratitude journal, written in daily, with what you are grateful for. You can also make the intention to be grateful for everything and throughout the day, express gratitude as often as possible, silently or when appropriate, out loud. For example, you can thank your car, your shoes, the road, your office, the person serving your coffee, your food, etc. Everyone and everything has a soul and souls really like to be appreciated! Gratitude has the effect of spreading heart-warming

cheer everywhere it’s practiced You can also apply soul healing techniques to help develop your gratitude and to remove blockages to your gratitude. Some of us have more blockages than others. Ego is a big blockage to gratitude and to the spiritual journey. You can benefit greatly from practicing gratitude, which helps clear negative ego and more. Gratitude is a key for leading a happy, successful life. Social scientists have found that gratitude can be cultivated with practice, and that it leads to many positive results and benefits. For example, research shows that those who practice gratitude experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and have strong immune systems. People who express their gratitude to others more often experience increased energy, optimism and empathy. In general, grateful people are happier, healthier and more open-hearted. It’s true, as gratitude comes from the heart! Master Lynda Chaplin is a Certified Master Teacher of Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha.

Manipulation Awareness by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within


egative extra-dimensional entities take advantage of a person’s weakened body or mind and usurp their energy. Existing beyond the limited 3D visible light spectrum that the human typically sees, they can easily manipulate. If you are not alert to them, you will wonder why you, or others, are suddenly behaving inconsistently or uncharacteristically. Negative interference is intended to create chaos, confusion, anxiety, self-doubt and disruption – to spin you off your centre. The moment you turn toward frustration, anxiety, anger, negativity, or give your power away, the negatives will use that. They will target your triggers so stay alert to who or what is driving your behaviours and thoughts. These are some signs that perhaps you are being manipulated: •  your behaviour suddenly changes – calm one minute and then flooded with fear, shame, or anger the next •  you become irritated by a series of circumstances around you •  you feel you must act on obsessive thoughts before they will subside

Committed to Your Self-Mastery? I specialize in clearing stubborn limiting patterns. We can bring you freedom with Divine healing of your 12-dimensional self and clearing from the root level. pain & dis-ease  attachments  emotional triggers  traumas  ancestry  fears/phobias  karma  inorganic structures  addiction patterns  past life  limiting mental programs

•  you don’t know “what got over you” •  you find yourself surprisingly at odds with someone though you usually get along

•  you act on an addiction, whether or not you have ‘healed’ this pattern

•  you feel suddenly drained of energy •  when interacting with someone, you feel afraid,

pressured, wronged, uncertain, negated, monitored, suspicious, guilty or confused, and have difficulty regaining your centre, perspective or clarity If you are having experiences of psychic attack or entity harassment whether multi-dimensionally or through human beings who are being used, or you have a pattern of being easily manipulated, it is an opportunity to strengthen your inner core Spirit. The more familiar you are with your own triggers the better you can master discipline of your negative ego mind when they arise. Use diligent awareness through your Observer Self, and stay grounded.

The Greatest Connection Written by Alexis Nicol


Repatterning Your 3 Brains


ow’s life going for you? Is it flowing? Are you happy? When you check in with yourself what do you feel? Are you connected Spiritually? The basis for how you look and/or go through your daily life is directed by one’s connection spiritually with their Higher Self (Creator, Universal Life Force, Nature, God). You will know when you are connected as life tends to flow to and through you in forms of peace, love, joy, creativity, grace and more. As we commune and act with this Pure Energy we are opening ourselves up to our greatest potential. We are being led along a path that is full of meaningful adventure that seems to flow with synchronicity. Trying to do something just because we have been told to is not always the best way to go about living our lives. Without first connecting inwardly and listening to our Higher Self can cause unnecessary discomfort in our lives, not to mention that the results may take a lot longer and may be more difficult than had we just asked for Divine guidance. I find that in my life, whenever I just don’t feel right, stumble or something seems to be taking more effort than I feel is necessary, I stop and take a moment to still my mind and ask Myself for clarity. This provides me with insight to the bigger picture. I do this with the guidance and assistance of the Divine Presence that resides within (all of us). I love how the results are practically immediate. I am aware of how quickly everything begins to flow with such ease and grace. I often quieten my mind, going inward to connect with the One energy that will set me up for my day. For me, It is my best friend and my greatest connection, It is the Divine Consciousness that links me to You.

“A new client came into my energy therapy office last week that had a brain tumor removed 1.5 years ago and had since lost most of the motor movement on the right side of his body. His arm could not lift and his leg, only enough to enable him to walk with a limp. He came back into my office this week and I asked him how he was doing. He confidently lifted his arm up to shoulder height, said his decades of daily morning headaches are completely gone and his 20 year sleeping pattern of waking up at 2am has now ameliorated to 4am.” ~ Jean, Gatineau, QC



nergetic patterns exist throughout space and matter and their alignment and structure is fundamental to good health, whether in our bodies or the Universe at large. So, if the energetic patterns in our brain (and/or heart and gut brains) become dysregulated, how can we help to repattern them to reflect previous good health? And, how can we do this to address various related symptoms that arise such as, ADHD, depression, anxiety, heart or blood issues, or digestive and immune issues, etc.? One way is to ask our innate intelligence, which parts and systems and/or which of the 3 brains need to resynchronize communication between and within them so that their functions can be reset to perform more optimally. This is where BodyTalk Energy Therapy can help. The BodyTalk System harnesses the innate intelligence of the body and mind by using neuromuscular biofeedback to uncover the unique communication pathways that need to be reestablished so that the body can heal itself. As awareness is brought to ill adapted health patterns and suggestions for change are made, the body and mind integrate these so that old patterns can break up and reconfigure the neural circuitry to better reflect your optimal health possibilities. As this unfolds, people begin to watch many of their physical symptoms reduce or disappear, and feel more vibrant, alive and connected than ever, just as nature intended.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How can we overcome self-criticism?

SRI CHINMOY: You have two voices inside you. One encourages you, “Go forward, march on! You are doing the right thing.” The other one discourages you. It says that you have to become much better, because right now you are imperfect in every way. The voice that encourages you is your conscience, your inner being, telling you that you are doing the right thing. It is like a mother encouraging her child when the child is trying to do something. Her encouragement gives the child a tremendous push forward. The other voice inside you is constantly making you feel miserable by telling you that you are doing everything wrong. It is always pointing out defects and imperfections in your nature. Do you think that that voice is telling you the truth. No, it is only trying to discourage you by throwing cold water on your efforts and destroying your self-confidence while it pretends to be impartial. By telling you constantly that what you are doing, saying and feeling is wrong, it is not helping you in any way to go faster towards your goal. On the contrary, if you have just a little possibility, the critic within you is killing it. So feel that the voice that is encouraging you is the divine voice, and the one that is discouraging you is the undivine voice in you. Self-criticism can only be conquered by proper self-appreciation. If we love ourselves in an emotional or egotistical way, then we are limiting and binding ourselves. We must love ourselves just because God is breathing inside us, because God wants to fulfill Himself in and through us. You have to claim the right person as your own. God is your Source. You have to take the positive approach. You have to be aware of who you are and what you stand for, not in an aggressive sense, but in a spiritual sense. Right now, you are not aware twenty-four hours a day. But a day will come when you will be aware all the time that you are God’s chosen child; you are on earth Him to serve, Him to fulfil.

TCM Recommendations Riverside Acupuncture for Spring & Wellness Center By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac


t is the long-awaited change of winter to spring. Seeds sprout, flowers bloom, and the sun warms the earth. There is a sense of renewal and new life all around. While winter was a time to conserve energy and reduce activity, spring is a time of regeneration, new beginnings, and a renewal of spirit. Spring is the time of birth, when the earth’s energies begin to awaken and we see the signs of new growth around us. Yang influences are being reborn in nature and in the body and as a result our energy becomes more active and begins to ascend. The followings are the recommendations for better health during spring. 1. Develop Balance and Express Emotions: Spring is the best time of year to develop balance. Emotionally, spring awakens desire, which should be open and unsuppressed. Because the yang qi of the liver is pushing upward and outward, it is common to feel and express anger in spring. 2. Increase Exercise and Time Outdoors: In exercise and activity, it is a good idea to take brisk walks and hikes to loosen the tendons and use the yang energy that is rising. We should begin to increase our exercise, with

more stretching. Begin to rise earlier and retire early, and spend time outside to get fresh air. Wear loose clothing. 3. Springtime Diet: Food in spring should emphasize the sweet and pungent flavours, for their rising and expansive qualities. Avoid excess salt, ts strong descending nature is opposite to the energies of spring. The diet should be light in amount and concentration, emphasizing young plants like greens and sprouts, as these foods cleanse the body of the effects of the heavier foods of winter.   Springtime diet should be the lightest of the year. 4: Stay in Tune with the Seasons: By eating fresh, light foods and emphasizing vegetables in our spring diet (vegetables are natural detoxifiers) and by getting brisk exercise and fresh air, we can ensure our habits are in harmony with the seasons. Chinese medicine emphasizes harmony with the seasons as a way to promote health and longevity, boost the immune system, and to prevent or minimize seasonal ailments. 5. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can help improve the overall health of your liver as well as treat stress, anger and frustration, which are often associated with liver qi disharmony.

PATHWORK: The Abyss of Illusion

Pathwork Open Lecture Discussions WINTER 2017 Saint Paul University, 233 Main St; follow the signs to the room

Freedom and Self-responsibility


he advertising slogan “Freedom 55” resonated for many people with our ultimate dream of a carefree life – somewhere ‘up ahead’ we would be liberated to a life of happiness and abundance. In our human struggle to find happiness we box ourselves in with the illusion that a benevolent god, or life, or the perfect relationships, or the perfect job, or the perfect retirement plan will give us exactly what we need. We expend a great deal of emotional effort trying to force life into our picture of ‘how it should be.’ At the same time, if we take the time to look within, we can sense currents of anxiety. We fear that the outside world may disappoint us or that we may not be good enough to merit the rewards we want. In Pathwork lecture #60 : The Abyss of Illusion – Freedom and Self-responsibility we explore the paradox that we find freedom only when we dig into our daily frustrations and anxieties, or when we look at areas that are unfulfilled in our lives to uncover the misconceptions

International lecture series of the Bruno Groening completely normal. In our day, people practising the simple approach he taught of absorbing the Circle of Friends

A New Path to Health for Body and Soul Free public lecture by European physician, A. Flörchinger, MD

There is no incurable; God is the Greatest Physician.” So said Bruno Groening (1906 – 1959), who became known around the world after reports of mass healings that occurred in Germany in the 1950s. Thousands of sufferers flocked to this simple man, who called upon them to return to God’s divine order which is health. Healings happened throughout the crowds, as well as for absent relatives. When news reports brought these unusual events to the world’s attention, thousands more who were not able to travel to Germany wrote letters from other countries. They too experienced healing at a distance through Bruno Groening. Medical Science Confirms Spiritual Healing as Factual In his time, medical doctors observed Mr. Groening addressing desperate help-seekers, and saw rapid recoveries of patients whom they had labeled “incurable”. Convinced by the mounting evidence, in 1992 doctors, psychologists, nurses and other health professionals came together as the Medical-Scientific Group (MWF), in support of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends which passes on his teachings. Several thousand MWF members donate their time and expertise to examine healing cases that defy the limits of standard medicine. By reviewing hospital records, physicians’ reports, X-rays and test data, MWF members confirm when medically-inexplicable recoveries can only be explained as the divine power restoring the natural order in the body. A General Practitioner in Germany, Dr. Andreas Flörchinger, MD, is one of four senior physicians who coordinate the MWF’s worldwide activity. “Part of our task is offering scientifically-based lectures about the incredible potential for people to regain their health and well-being through applying the freely-available teaching of Bruno Groening”, says Flörchinger. Dr. Flörchinger will present documented cases from the official archives; some local individuals will also report their experiences. The Divine Power Helps and Heals Bruno Groening didn’t consider these healings “miraculous”; in his view, this was to be seen as


Heilstrom (“healing stream”) still experience restored health: dramatic reversals of severe chronic debilities; liberation from addictions (often without withdrawal symptoms); and social improvements such as resolution of intractable conflicts in a family or workplace. The teaching of Bruno Groening remains as powerful, vibrant and effective as it was when Groening was physically present. He stated that he was only reminding humanity of principles of life we had forgotten in the turmoil of geopolitics. He didn’t come to found a new religion either, calling himself only a little signpost pointing the way back to God. Thousands of people continue to find health through his teaching. It is from this wealth of ‘success reports’ that Dr. Flörchinger will present documented cases in his lecture. A Medical Doctor Experiences the Divine Power In addition to the standard medical education, Dr. Flörchinger studied and obtained qualification in homeopathic, anthroposophic and naturopathic medicine. All these disciplines were not enough; some patients were still not being helped. “I learned about Bruno Groening from a patient in 2005,” Dr. Flörchinger recalls, and then he read A Revolution in Medicine, a biography of Bruno Groening with enlightening scientific commentary, written by Matthias Kamp, MD. After attending a doctor’s information lecture (similar to the one he now presents), Flörchinger became part of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends and the MWF. Soon after, his own experiences gave further confirmation: “Most important for me was absorbing the healing power for myself, feeling it in my body — and also the healing of my father from a stroke with a leftside weakness.” The Medical Scientific Group of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends organizes information lectures Andreas Flöchinger, MD worldwide, for which doctors donate their vacations, or come out of retirement. In 2017, the MWF’s lecture tour includes about 100 cities in North America. In April 2017, Dr. Flörchinger will give presentations in Vancouver, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, and Ottawa. Health professionals —physicians, psychologists, nursing and other professionals — are cordially invited. This lecture is also open to the general public. No admittance will be charged; free-will donations would be gratefully received.

Hair Analysis “Every sickness, disease and ailment, can be traced to a mineral deficiency (i.e. imbalance).” - Dr. Linus Pauling HAIR ANALYSIS AND NUTRITIONAL BALANCING WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM - Hair Analysis is a non-invasive medical test that obtains diagnostic, screening and monitoring information on your health, performance and even trends that lead toward dis-ease. Eventually one’s goal is to hold the proper levels and ratios of essential nutrient minerals so that you can support optimum cellular function relating to your health. Hair Analysis will also measure the heavy metals and toxic loads that can interfere with health. Hair re-tests will monitor the detoxification and mineral balancing progress and in order to design a precise and personalized Nutritional Balancing Program to balance your particular body chemistry, a Hair Analysis is always required. MENTAL OR SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT - A Nutritional Balancing program can cause what is called mental or spiritual development in a human being. This is an amazing benefit that can extend life and enhance healing greatly. It is a very precise process in which many glial cells of the brain eventually die off and are replaced by neurons that enhance the brain capacity or thinking capacity of the person. This process can be observed by certain indicators on a Hair Mineral Analysis such as an elevated phosphorus reading. Other words for this process might include “personality integration”, “achieving one’s total potential”, “selfactualization” or “self-realization”. Other people may refer to it as developing the chakras or the aura. Development is nothing less than the total unfolding of the human being at all levels of development. TOXINS CAUSE DISEASES OF ALL KINDS, INCLUDING ALL MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL DISEASE Our bodies are bombarded from every direction with substances we were not designed to process or eliminate such as air/water pollution, chemicals founds in our food, and industrial, beauty and household products.

When combined with a Western lifestyle- stress, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, infrequent exercise and improper diet, the body becomes overloaded and cannot eliminate the toxins properly. Why not begin to learn what it takes to keep yourself in balance with your personalized Nutritional Balancing Protocol that will provide the right nutritional support for your unique metabolic profile and you can continue to monitor your progress through Hair Analysis. • 613-789-1318 NOTE: Nutritional Balancing Science and Hair Mineral Analysis do not diagnose, treat or cure any diseases, and are not substitutes for standard medical care

AWAKENING by Garry Rondeau

“Awakening” implies that one is asleep, or in a trance, or a coma, perhaps dreaming. Then there is a shift that brings one out of the state of sleep, trance or coma. This is what we call awakening; that change of state from trance to awareness. We move into a more awake, aware place of consciousness. And it is a step that we take more than once. There are many awakenings along the way. The more we awaken to our divine nature, the more fully Divine Love, or our Divine Consciousness, expresses in and through us. We make it real and the truth sets us free. Now I believe, that my Divine Nature pulled at me to awaken. It is an inherent part of our nature, to be called forth into the awareness of the Holy Spirit that we truly are. So there is a mystical pull, that is in our very nature, that draws us towards the truth and, at some time, that deeper desire, gets triggered or is activated. Awakening is like a dance, and I am both the sleeping one, and the one who is awake. And the dance is also me. It is an inner feeling quality, and it is at a deeper level of myself, that flitters in and out of my awareness. At times, I find it harder to get hold of. Sometimes it is so strong and bright, and other times, hardly a whisper.

And at times, I may disregard it, and at other times not even be aware of it, but regardless, it is still there. The dance of awakening, is not something from which any one of us can completely turn away from, because, it is a part of our inherent Divine nature. It is always calling us into greater awareness. And this greater awareness is our greater potential for unleashing our goodness. And this is one of the real benefits of Unity. It gives you a structure, teaches you about the dance, and gives you the tools in which to learn and practice the steps in the dance. (excerpted from a Sunday Lesson by Garry Rondeau, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa.

Making Sense of Scents


hat’s in a scent? Does it come from nature, or is in synthetic, and does it even matter? As a Certified Aromatherapist, I take this question very seriously. Why? Because if a scent is derived from a plant, it is natural. Not to say you might not have a reaction to something natural, but the odds are less than a manufactured scent that may be derived from petrochemicals. In fact, 95% of synthetic fragrance comes from petrochemicals which include toxins capable of causing at the very least allergic reactions, at most birth defects and cancer, and other serious disease. One of the things that really scares me is that you, informed consumer, may not be aware of these damaging chemicals because they do not have to be included on the label due to ‘secret recipes’. Even worse, some detergents and so on can be labelled ‘fragrancefree’, but actually have been treated to cover up the smell of the initial product. Back to essential oils for a moment: these plant extracts have been used for centuries for their therapeutic value, and of course, the fact that they smell nice. Lavender


has proven its mettle as a skin healing oil for centuries. Frankincense has been known to quiet the mind since... well, who knows exactly when, but it is certainly an oil that goes back to biblical times. Myrrh has been used to help strengthen gums and as a preservative, and both myrrh and frankincense were highly prized gifts to Jesus from the magi. Essential oils have stood the test of time, and we have a wealth of information about their uses and safety precautions.

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach, Certified Facilitator, Open Space Technology, and Small Group Processes


s I’ve been spending time preparing to teach the basic Grounding workshop to a small group, I’m pondering my history with the work that has brought me to this place of offering these workshops regularly here in Ottawa and in other places in Canada. This is a one day workshop, the first in a series of three, that truly does change the lives of everyone who chooses to attend. This morning, I’m remembering how I learned about this work, and how it affected my life from the very beginning. I had been in a relationship that had basically ended, but I was still being affected by that person when they chose to bring me into their sphere, and each time I thought I had totally finished with them I could feel myself being drawn back in when they chose to do so, with their thoughts and intentions. I was very frustrated by this, and couldn’t manage to effectively disconnect until a friend offered me this material. It was absolutely transformative, and I knew that I needed to share it with the world. As soon as I learned these very simple tools, the results were instant. Similarly, I could tell that people close to me, who had always felt free to have some sort of control over me, were effectively blocked from energetically affecting me, and I could have a much more egalitarian relationship with them without the power issue ever entering the field. I had a similar experience in an office where I had been working during that time, with a new colleague who was all about being in a power over relationship

with everyone who worked with her. I would do my clearing and shielding first thing in the morning, and every time during the day when I began to feel fatigued, and this person knew that she was not being allowed to have any effect on me. This work will transform your life, your relationships, and not only those with others, but also your relationship with yourself. It really helps with making decisions for the right reasons, for checking in with yourself to know what you really want for you, and to not make decisions based on what others want. It is a transformational experience for everyone who chooses to become involved. Believe me, your life and relationships will never be the same.

he educational, health, societal and financial systems we have elected to serve humanity have taken on a different role and have evolved into entities that focus on their self-interests. This calls for creative ways to address humanity’s basic needs, especially in these changing times as humanity moves to the next level of consciousness “Oneness of all”, en route to full consciousness. Crowdfunding is to finance what Uber is to taxis – they both empower individuals by eliminating dependency on traditional systems that, by design, were self-serving and kept individuals enslaved. With banks and financial institutions limiting the availability to secure funds, crowdfunding/ crowdsourcing has become a new way to meet global financial needs. Donation crowdfunding is a means to fund a project by raising small amounts of donations from a large number of people. President Obama, a person without wealth, revolutionized politics and used crowdfunding to raise 631 million dollars for his re-election campaign, eliminating dependency on wealthy organizations/ donors in exchange for favours. Of the several platforms on the market, Crowdfunding International (CFI) stands tall as an ethical, pioneering new platform that uses a holistic approach. In contrast to conventional platforms, with CFI there is only a one-time donation, NO ongoing fees, NO long exhaustive campaigns, NO pleading for money. The system allows members to support one another and equitably fund all projects, thereby CREATING A STRONG AND VIBRANT COMMUNITY. The premise behind CFI perpetuates an abundance mindset. It eliminates limitations not only for individuals, but also for charities and not-for-profit organizations who use conventional fund raising, in a very competitive environment. In essence, CFI allows financial freedom that has the potential to culminate in a harmonious and balanced lifestyle, recognizing that “anything is possible”. Several Ottawans have ceased upon this opportunity and have created diverse and amazing projects with Crowdfunding International (CFI), driven by their desire to help others and to fulfill their dreams. For more information on how you can transform your life, contact Pesi Shroff: or David Thompson: By Pesi Shroff, Support Team, Project Manager, Crowdfunding International.

Supporting Children in Changing Times by Satkiana Swan

Children of the Now The children of today are being born with increased psychic abilities and awareness. They are coming to Earth to match her new frequency and to live in harmony with her. As adults, we need to take a step back and allow them to unfold. It happens effortlessly, when we refrain from imposing upon them our own concepts, beliefs and values. How Can We Best Support Them One way that parents and educators can support children is through a daily practice. A daily practice consists of simple breathing exercises, some yoga postures, knowledge of the five elements that make-up all of creation and meditation. The practice time may begin with only 5-10 minutes a day and extend with the child’s experience and age. Benefits of a Daily Practice Having a daily practice enables children to connect with their inner world. Connecting within helps a child to self-regulate, cultivate resilience to life challenges, feel calm, focused, confident and grounded. Children also learn that their true identities are based here, not outside of themselves in roles or others opinions. Chronic Over-stimulation Many children are so over-stimulated by their environments: school, malls, technology, music, extracurricular activities, etc., that their nervous systems are hyperactive. We see this in hyper-active children who are unable to focus, may lack impulse control and experience anxiety and insomnia. It is not just children diagnosed with ADHD or ADD who are experiencing these symptoms.

The Power of Prayer There’s no problem that God can’t solve. Prayer is the answer because through prayer we realize God, and realizing God, there is no longer any problem. Hi, my name is Pam. My email is • Contact me to meet • We will pray together • Pay me when you realize God, when the problem is solved • Pay what you think is the right amount for the freedom you receive

Principle Instructor / Certified Financial Planner


hat I have come to understand over the years is that one cannot run flat out all the time, regardless of how excited you are in achieving your goals. I have seen many people burn themselves out as they relentlessly forge ahead towards their goal. I do admire their strong determination and over the long haul, this is a desirable character attribute to have. However, as I’m writing this article, I’m currently enjoying a period of “Pause”. I now routinely schedule some down time to give me a chance to regroup and assess what corrective measures I must take to achieve my goals. The “auto pilot” on an airplane will do this a million times a minute to keep itself on course while in flight. But we humans need to remind ourselves to take the time to do this. During this period of pause, take the time to reflect, to contemplate and to assess what your goals are, if your vision is still applicable and determine what else needs to be done. Keep your eyes on the target but do acknowledge your progress and celebrate your success. You will gain some new vitality and also strengthen your enthusiasm at the same time. Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute. He is a Certified Retirement Coach, Certified Financial Planner as well as public speaker. He is the author of “The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness”. He conducts workshops and courses on the subject of winning the game of wealth creation.

What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?


am often asked by people what is hypnosis feel like? I always answer there is no real feeling in hypnosis. It is not like happiness, it is not like sadness, not a kind of emotion. Hypnosis is more an experiential learning in the mind and in your neurosystem, your neurological system. If I were to give you a map for of what it is like to be hypnotized, what it kind of feels like if it does feel like anything. It is almost like going to a movie. Now consciously you know the movie is not real, you are going to the cinema, you’ve paid your ticket, your hard earned money to be there and you’re watching a bunch of actors on the movie screen, on the silver screen have been paid way too much money to be there. And behind those actors are camera people who are filming their every move. And behind the camera people is the director that’s giving people orders what to do, and behind the director is a big movie studio that’s funded it. If it is one of those new movies, one of those new fandango movies, there’s usually a green screen which just projects a bunch of things that are not there in action movies, explosion movies, superhero movies, many movies in fact. Even though consciously you know

none of it is real, for that two hours or so that you are there for that movie you suspend disbelief while you are there. And if it is a really good movie with your favorite actors with a great story, then it captivates, it captures and leads your imagination. So when the hero is in some kind of trouble, in some kind of plight even, you start to feel it. If the hero is excited and happy or in love, oh you feel it because the movie makers are the best hypnotists in the world, they know how to manipulate your emotions. And please understand when I say manipulation, I do not mean in a bad way, I simply mean to move you from emotions to give you a whole gamma, a whole kaleidoscope of different experiences and different emotions. Consciously, logically when you analyze it with your conscious mind, none of it is real. If it is really, really good to get sucked into it. And that’s much like hypnosis. Consciously ,you know, it is just a guy speaking to you helping to do inventions to help change things in your mind. Consciously you know that but your unconscious mind does not know the difference between something that is real and something that is vividly imagined. Now I do not want you to do this. But if you were to go away for a couple of minutes and

“I Can Make YouStop Stop Smoking in One Hour”Hour” “I Can Make You Smoking in One If you’re having trouble kicking the Evil Habit Dr. Luke Michael Howard can transform even the most ardent smoker into a healthy non-smoker IN JUST ONE HOUR.

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis Complete Mind Therapy organization, is a Smoking Cessation Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 16 years now and has trained all over the world. After over a decade, Dr. Luke is still the youngest person


certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. Dr. Luke has been featured in all forms of media such as Tone Magazine, CTV Morning Live, and CBC Radio. He has developed an advanced hypnotherapy technique that turns weak willed smokers into empowered Non-Smokers in just one hour. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 95% success rate. This is incredible when you think that patches are only about 16% successful. We are so confident in the success of this treatment that we offer a free backup session for the remaining 5%. In fact, if after the session any one should need an extra session, it’s theirs, FREE OF CHARGE.” Dr. Luke explains, “This powerful breakthrough technique combines the latest discoveries in hypnosis and the new science of personal achievement known as Neuro Linguistic

Programming. This takes the power of hypnosis to a new level in helping people take back control of their lives.” Many local doctors are so impressed by the power of hypnosis that they are now referring many of their patients to Dr. Luke for his Accelerated Change Stop Smoking Programme. Dr. Luke says, “I am currently building a Doctors Referral Network to keep local GP’s informed of my developments and to keep them informed of their patients’ progress. Many celebrities, professional business people, nurses and housewives have benefited from stopping smoking with hypnosis, SO CAN YOU! The good news is that this incredible method of stopping smoking is available locally. The bad news there usually is a two or three week waiting list for an appointment – but even the medical profession believes it’s worth waiting for.

April 2017

“I walked out a nonsmoker!” Caroline had been a smoker for the majority of her lifenearly 30 YEARS! She had tried every type of stop-smoking aid possible, tried using ‘will power’ to quit cold turkey but to no avail-that is until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promise I will totally do a video testimonial for you in the future though, as the hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I not smoked...I have not even WANTED to!!! It really is amazing” Check out more testimonial videos on: and you can contact Dr. Luke at LUKEnosis to arrange an appointment at 613-8785874.


just imagine one of your favorite pets are dying and you really were to believe it, make yourself believe it, think about it over and over again for a couple of minutes, you might get quite upset, you might even cry. Even though you know your pet is hopefully very healthy and very happy because see, like i say, your unconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between something that is real and something that is vividly imagined. Because your imagination is far more powerful than your intellect or logical mind would ever be. If it wasn’t, all you would have to say I am a smoker, it makes no sense for me to do this, it is killing me and costing me a whole bunch of money, and makes me smell really bad, i am going to stop it. Does not make any logical sense? Or I am really, really overweight, it is making me eat too much food, it is making me feek miserable, I can’t get into my old clothes anymore, I feel disgusted with myself, it makes no logical sense, I am simply going to stop. Or I am really, really pressed, I am really, really sad it, but it makes me feel horrible. i do not want to feel this any way, it does not make any logical sense, so you stop. Or the anxious person, every day i go out, I feel immense social anxiety, i can’t connect with the type of people I wanna connect to, I’m so shy, I’m so in my shell, I’m so uncomfortable out there, i do not fit in in the real world. And you simply suddenly stop doing that because it’s hurting me, at least emotionally. It’s limiting my opportunities.

If you could logically fix it, you probably would not be watching this video, but you see all of those events, all of those situations, all of those problems, all of those conditions if you will, are all emotional conditions. They’re all illogical. Now please don’t get me wrong, I say I do not think you are experiencing them because I know you have experiencing them because I have dealt with people, thousands of people for almost 20 years now. Experiences, very, very real for them. But what I mean is illogical problems require illogical solutions. For example I’ll get a client in my office that has a phobia of heights. Now i am on the ground floor. So when my client comes in they should not be able to have that fear of heights because we are on the ground floor, but i can always get my client to have that phobia of heights and to experience it while they are in my office on the ground floor to a point where i see there’s physiological shift inside them, their eyes dilate, their skin changes color. And i will ask them on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being incredible anxiety and fear, and 0 would be none, where are you? And they often tell me it is a seven or eight, and I see that shift in them. Then we will do some work together for hypnosis and some other neurological sciences and some other mind sciences and we remove that problem and they actually really experience it being moved. Now it is all-way logical and it’s all completely in your mind and it is all in the mind because I know, like I said, that they can experience the fear, the problem without actually having the trigger of it just by me asking them to re-experience in their mind. Illogical problems require illogical solutions. Hence while in hypnosis we can talk directly to your unconscious mind and really start to make those shifts permanent and lifelong.

by Rupa ounting meditation is to set a number to count to. We can count from 1 to 100, or count down from 100 to 1. Our mind is to focus on the number counting. It doesn’t matter if we lose count of the number, we can just start from the beginning number again. The one who can count to a bigger number does not necessarily have a longer focus length. Just focus on counting, clearly and slowly. If we lose count, count again. Keep alert and aware. We can combine the counting with the breath. For example, count one when we breathe in, count two when we breathe out, and so on. Self-inquiry for the Counting meditation: limited and unlimited, temporary and eternal With the restraint of the river bed, the journey of a river can be simple. Even if it’s long, it has no choice but to go towards the ocean. After the river goes through all the twists and turns and at last reaches the ocean, is this the journey’s end or beginning? Can we face the immense ocean? With the body holding the soul, we might have to face a lot of troubles in our lives. We just deal with what we have to face. How about death? Is death the end or beginning? How to deal with death? Are we ready? Through the amount of limited numbers, we know numbers are unlimited. This is knowledge of Math. Even though we haven’t seen the infinite number, we accept there is an infinite. Similarly, we can use the temporary existing physical body to understand the eternity of the soul. This is spiritual knowledge. As long as we study sincerely, through the power of knowledge, we can accept the existence of the invisible soul. We can also use scientific method to prove the existence of the soul by ourselves. Spiritual knowledge can give us some ideas how to face the unknown world, especially death. We just need to learn the method and practice. Even a little bit of practice will save us from the ocean of unknown. If the consciousness is awakened, then at the moment we die even if the mind is absent, we can rely on consciousness. So when we are living, we need to utilize the mind to awaken and develop consciousness by meditation. Welcome to attend Rupa’s (Ivy) meditation at Wishingtree Yoga.

Her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way.

Living Your Purpose Channelled by Lisa Virtue


t is a time of dramatic change, yet so many are feeling it in opposite ways. A time of dissonance or growing elation, happiness, excitement, doom or dread. Whether you are moving happily along or not, you are all progressing. Not a one is being “left behind”. It is truly impossible. For no matter where you are, you are always progressing – in exactly the way that is needed in your particular life. No other’s life is relevant to your progression. No other’s stream reflects that which matters for you. Do not hold yourselves in judgment of that which you have or do not, are experiencing, or not. Witness what life serves you. Search for perspectives that reveal to you a greater purpose, a silver lining. Are you heading in the right direction? You will know this if you feel you have a sense of ease for a topic – a subject you are considering. How are you considering that thing? What are your instinctive reactions to it? Within those reactions, do you feel what may be motivating them? Is it fear, resistance, flow, joy, excitement? It is often easier to feel the rush of a pure, aligned choice that has no resistances to it. Yet how often are you truly presented with such inputs? There are greater things to consider, often that come into play in your considerations. Relax. It is not up to you to save the world in every choice, plan, or decision you make. Just allow that life has a greater way, or method, of working for you than you imagine. Allow greater ease and leeway in your decision-making. Know you are and will forever be, fully supported along the way. Trust is something harder to find when the weight of the world is put on your own shoulders. Decide that your life will always work out in frequently surprising ways. Unanticipated ways that only life itself could truly fathom. In your decisions feel first, explore second, decide third. In the exploration phase, instead of adding to the challenge through dissecting all the burdens, search instead for the roots of your concerns - the feeling, idea or issue that underlies. Bring light to the theme that pervades. It has manifested in other ways in your life before. Find the pattern. See the heart, the root of the difficulty. Say, for example, you find the heart is that you feel incapable. Recognize the ways this has shown in your life before. The approaches you took have

not resolved the matter yet. Use that understanding to support you. Know that much has already been learned. Seek advice if you feel stuck, but examine what approach you may find resolution with now. It need not be a lifelong issue, no matter the challenge it may seem to bring forth. Like a babe learning to crawl, a child to tie its shoe, approaches are tested, results experienced, decisions made, new ideas brought forth, new experience tried. Triumph comes. The journey may be brief or endure through bouts of frustration, anger, or sadness. Time or space may need to be given; yet perseverance, no matter the time frame, yields new understandings. Be not disheartened, for all counts in your progression. If you are vaulting right now and sensing that excitement build… enjoy it. Embrace that divine flow. You all have purpose, meaning, value and are worthwhile – no matter what. Love yourselves. You mean more than your experiences in life. With divine love, Highest selves. Here to lead those who seek to greater light within themselves, Lisa Virtue facilitates an opening to who you truly are, at the roots level. Follow your instinct to guide you into her path. Contact can be made through voice at 613-296-4271 or email Lisa works both in person and remotely.
