Tender Truth


e hear plenty these days on speaking truth. This typically means that the truth in question will be personal and may or may not resonate for others. But what about the kind of truth that is less personal and more universal? A truth much more aligned with putting the sword down than with picking it up? A truth that is more unifying than it is divisive? Let me provide an example: The relationship had hit a rough spot. The distance between them had become intolerable. If they could speak to each other with genuine care and candor across the searing silence, what would they say? I feel so scared. Based on our track record, I have little faith that either one of us possesses the skills necessary to navigate the growing distance between us. I fear that speaking will only create more pain as it has done in the past and I want so much more for both of us. I want these wounded places to be tended to mercifully .. so that we can either renew our faith in our commitment to meaningfully weave our lives together or, if need be, part ways with a deep abiding appreciation for what we have shared. I want so much to believe that we can find the generosity, grace and courage required to move forward. I want to believe that we can bow to this grief so that new life can be born. This is what I want to say to you. Neither person is likely to say this. Very few of us know how to speak so candidly and with such heart. Our sincerity often goes no further than guarded personal truth, opinion, and hurtful evaluations. But just because we don’t express our more vulnerable selves or know how to begin, it doesn’t mean the words expressed above would not be true. There’s plenty that lives inside us that we don’t know how to articulate..

If we had witnessed such tender charitable exchanges during our childhood years, we would have learned to speak differently with each other during more challenging moments. Our conversations wouldn’t collapse into defensiveness and accusation while recklessly escalating the conflict. Think how different our relationships might be if we in fact possessed both the self awareness and skillfulness to articulate the depth of our aliveness without resorting to the crude tools most of us were schooled in during our formative years. It’s not to late to learn. Rachelle Lamb is a certified trainer of Nonviolent Communication who makes home in Victoria BC. Her annual Ottawa training takes place this month.

Self-Discovery - Find Yourself with Ease T

rying to “find yourself” has gotten a mixed reputation. It can be an excuse when you want to break up with someone without mentioning the real reasons. It can also be a distraction from accepting responsibilities, like doing your share of tasks or duties. On the other hand, figuring out who you are and what you need to do in order to have a fulfilling life could be the most important and satisfying questions you will ever answer. What to Look For: 1. Clarify your values. Knowing your values helps you to make solid decisions and prioritize your activities. Consider how your values relate to your daily life. Look for opportunities to live in agreement with them. Summarize your philosophy into a personal values statement you can refer to when needed. 2. Understand your strengths. Do you know where your talents are and what you feel passionate about? You will accomplish greater things with less stress when you opt for a path that lets you leverage your main assets.

3. Create flow states. What activities boost your energy levels and make you lose track of time? Whether you love playing the piano or solving physics equations, chances are these flow states will suggest the fields in which you can excel. Where to Look: 1. Listen to yourself. Finding yourself is about living authentically. Pay attention to what your mind and body are telling you. Notice when you feel engaged and when you feel lost. Is there a pattern behind these situations? 2. Accept your feelings. Acknowledge your emotions, even when they cause you discomfort. Trying to suppress the truth will backfire and produce more stress. When you accept your anger or sorrow, you can start thinking about positive options for dealing with it.



3. Keep a journal. Writing about your journey encourages you to learn and grow. Recording your activities and insights regularly can help you to find solutions to personal challenges and build your self-esteem. Finding yourself is an ongoing process that lasts a lifetime. Being willing to discover the truth about yourself is the key to fulfillment!! Moira Hutchison Mindfulness Coach, Tarot Card Reader & Energy Healer 613.432.1239 www.WellnessWithMoira.com

Ecstatic body postures:

Doorways to expanded consciousness By Paige Cousineau


he Cuyamungue Method of Ecstatic Ritual Postures is a safe technique that can produce a profound shift in consciousness. This technique was originally studied in depth by Dr. Felistas Goodman, an anthropologist, who graduated from Ohio State University. Dr Goodman founded the Cuyamungue Institute, located on a large property she had bought in Santa Fe. After Dr Goodman’s passing in 2005, her work was taken over by Dr. Belinda Gore and others.

each day, we had the option of getting up early and greeting the sunrise together over the mountain ridge across the valley. I am not a person who generally has fantastic journeys or gets deep messages in a shamanic experience, but I always feel that my spirit has been nourished and cared for even if I don’t intellectually understand the experience. At Cuyamungue, when using the postures, my experiences were more vivid, and I found it much easier to transition into a trance state. After my return I wanted to continue to practise the postures. Using Dr. Belinda Gore’s book “Ecstatic Body Postures” and my training, I had all the tools I needed, but we all know how difficult it is to keep up a practice by yourself. I finally decided that it was important enough to make this work available here that I invited Dr. Gore to come to Ottawa to give a public presentation and workshop on the weekend of April 5-7. If you are interested in joining us, see further details on this page.

Question: Would you say something about death? SRI CHINMOY: In the external life, I have two rooms: a living room and a bedroom. In my living room I work and talk to people. In my bedroom, I rest and sleep. In the spiritual world, the living room is life; the sleeping room is death. I need no one when I am in this room called death because I go there to rest. But people are afraid of this room because they feel that death is alien and far away, whereas life is close and familiar. It is not true; both life and death are the soul’s possessions. Remember that it is the body that dies and not the soul. The Bhagavad-Gita, India’s great spiritual epic, tells us that just as we discard a worn-out garment and accept a new one, even so the embodied soul discards this body and accepts a new one. The soul is eternal and immortal; weapons cannot cleave it, fire cannot burn it, water cannot drench it, wind cannot dry it. It is invincible. The soul is very, very wise. It does not forget what it did on earth; it carries with it the essence of the experiences that it had while it was in the land of the living. While resting, it tries to assimilate the essence of thousands of experiences which it had on earth. Then when it enters into the world again, the soul comes with new hope, new life, new determination and new willpower to unveil its inner potentialities and at the same time, to manifest the Divine in the most beautiful and most fulfilling way. It tries to bring all the gifts and achievements of its own previous evolution into play for this fullest possible manifestation. Each birth and each death has a special significance, leading us towards a higher life, a better life. Each incarnation is a rung in the ladder of evolution. Man is progressing consciously and unconsciously. When his progress is conscious, realisation will take place much sooner and the necessity of death will not exist at all.

Pressure to Flow with the Natural Laws by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapy & Ascension Healing


atural spiritual-energetic laws govern and support our experiences. By flowing with them we create inner harmony with our Spirit. If we don’t align with these principles, we can now find ourselves feeling pressure to change incongruent and perhaps longhidden aspects of ourselves. By aligning with the 13 natural laws we stabilize the energies for everyone, and we do need to very mindfully hold steady in the current chaotic forces. Here are just a few principles, stated very simply, so they can be applied to our daily choices.

Law of Mentalism – our thoughts determine our energetic reality on multiple simultaneous dimensions. We maintain connection with the Universal Mind of God. This law is the precursor to all others, mastered through clearing and disciplining the negative ego, and neutral Observer Consciousness. Ascension is 99% ego work.

Law of Suggestion – we’re the product of all that we’ve heard, seen, spoken and experienced, including fears, falsities, and mind control. We’re conscious of what and whose story we’re living. We think and speak clearly with our authentic heart to align our energies to our Highest Expression so that we strengthen and radiate our Inner Light in Service to Others.

Law of Transformation – all energy is in a perpetual state of death and rebirth. Who we are, our consciousness, and timelines, are always shifting. We allow the flow of inner change, and trust that all our experiences intelligently serve our evolution. Read about all 13 universal laws - www. AwakeningtheTruthWithin.com. 18 yrs. experience: compassionate, intuitive counselling, ego dismantling, & multi-dimensional ascension clearing. Appointments in person, skype/phone 613-253-2888. Healing for conscious couples, children, animals. Subscribe FREE to Being the Peace. Melinda Urban 2019 www.MelindaUrban.com

Law of Cause and Effect – we’re each accountable for how we use our energies and their effect. Love begets love. Fear begets fear. We learn from the effects of our past choices and focus on more affirming choices for positive outcomes. We choose to be the power and cause of our mind and emotions instead of being victim to others and situations.

Bhakti Yoga

Memories of My First Yoga Teacher Tan Run Hua

By Ivy Xie-McIsaac, E-RYT200, YACEP t has been more than 22 years since my first Yoga class in 1996. After I came back from Tibet in the summer, one of my colleagues gave me a book called “Lotus Fragrance”. The book introduces the great Tibetan Yogi Milarepa. That was the first time I encountered the word Yoga. Then in November of that year, my twin sister asked me if I would like to attend a Yoga class at the YWCA in Guangzhou, China, where we lived. Our teacher, Mr. Tan always started the class with a half-hour meditation. His approach was simple, play Yoga music. Music from a Bhakti Yoga band (Wai Lana). Even though I didn’t understand what they were singing, the affection that they expressed touched me. It only takes a few minutes to feel the calming effects of meditation with the power of sacred sound. Different forms of Yoga work on different fragments of the Self; some forms emphasize the body, some emphasize the mind and consciousness, and Bhakti Yoga directly works on the soul which is located in the heart. To fully understand Bhakti Yoga one needs extensive knowledge, but knowledge is not a must to practice Bhakti Yoga. A main form of practice with others is through Kīrtana. Kīrtana means “mentioning, repeating, saying, telling”. It uses sound vibration to glorify and describe the Absolute Truth. Anyone who is willing to share the love of the Divine and is

Spring into a Fresh Start Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol


t’s April! Finally, the long winter is behind us and the days are getting warmer and longer. It is a time to soak it all in. It is a time to start fresh, take a deep breath of new clean air and leave the dark days of the cave of winter behind. We have had our time to rest and now let’s get actively engaged in bringing those dreams we got cozy with into a bright new reality. We don’t have to go at full speed, forcing things or trying to control the way we think things should go. This can cause us to become frustrated and we may give up because it’s not coming quickly or easily. It has been my experience that some of us need to ease into the Spring or a new project. I compare it to waking up in the morning; I don’t just jump out of bed. I will take a few moments to reconnect my mind with my body, perhaps preparing for what my day will entail before

I get moving. I ask the Universe how I can best be of service and to be guided easily and effortlessly in all that I do. If I’m on the right track the synchronicity or “coincidences” always amaze me.

The Blame Game

by Jean Millar o you notice how much blaming goes on in our society? The news is full of the search for who to blame. But this is not occurring only ‘out there’; it also occurs within our own inner thoughts and attitudes, often outside our awareness. I notice that when things are not going the way I wish they were in my daily life, it is easy to lay the blame on someone else. It could be someone involved in the present situation or even someone from my past. In fact, most of us are convinced that our troubles are caused by other people because they do not respond to our needs. If life is difficult, it is common to blame a parent or a life circumstance for the present unhappiness. The Pathwork teachings show how many of the specific fulfillments we strive for are based on leftover, unmet childhood needs; how we hang onto them, out of awareness, and continue to struggle to have them fulfilled. But these were originally the needs of a child and therefore not fulfilling for an adult. As a result, when we continue in this way, in adulthood, to seek their impossible fulfillment, these have now become false needs. The continued striving towards this

The good news is that, with focused attention and intention, with self-honesty and compassion, we can bring this into awareness and heal it.

Creativity and the Highly Sensitive Person Workshop


or many years (in fact most of my life) I thought there was something wrong with me. I was sensitive to crowds (I hated going to shopping centres). I would find the fastest way in and out to get what I needed done. I felt things deeply. And I was slow at processing events that happened in my life. About 10 years ago a wise mentor mentioned that I might be a highly sensitive person. I jumped at this recognition because the words fit. That is how I discovered the work of Elaine Aron, the author of book, the Highly Sensitive Person which has now been translated into 18 languages. I devoured the book and learned the traits of highly sensitives. It fit me to a T! Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) are 20% of the world. They have unique characteristics differing from the other 80% of humanity (who are equally wonderful). The difference is that HSPs process events deeply. They are prone to over-stimulus (hence my shopping centre aversion). Often they need ‘alone time’ to recharge. They are great observers (hence my finding my life path as a portrait photographer). Often highly creative, HSPs prefer work that is in depth. So I thought it might be fun to create a small intimate workshop (maximum 6 people) to combine my two favourite passions: being a highly sensitive person and my deep love affair with Creativity – which has been the cornerstone of my (mostly) joyful life. The day-long workshop will be held in my zen-like Wakefield Portrait Studio in April and May. We will explore Creativity from the HSP perspective. The day will be filled with arts and crafts and joy and knowledge to help you ‘come home’ to the Highly Sensitive You!

he ancient principle of the relationship between our body and mind is now widely supported by modern scientific research. Experimental psychologist, Neal Miller PhD, discovered that we can be trained to control certain physical responses (e.g., blood pressure) that were previously considered to be involuntary. This discovery gave birth to numerous modalities. Having trained extensively in many fields, including hypnosis, I frequently see in my work how our mindset affects our body. We can be affected by our mind either aversively or positively. The well-known Dr. Herbert Benson developed the “relaxation response”. He was able to clearly demonstrate that meditation and other modalities can bring about physiological changes, including a lower heart rate, lower breathing rate and decreased muscle tension along with positive changes in brainwaves. We can help ourselves, perhaps much more than we realize! If we pay close attention, we ourselves can also witness this principle. Imagine for an instant that you receive wonderful news. You may jump with joy, your heart rate will go up slightly, you may have tears in your eyes. In the same way negative news will affect us, and it can all be perceived. In sessions with my clients, we explore this field extensively. What types of thoughts do I cultivate? What burden do I carry from the past and is it serving me? Shifting perspectives, letting go of the burden of the past, slowing down to be more mindful or present and we see a spontaneous reaction on all


levels of our mindset, but also in our body. For example, I have had clients suffering from misophonia (sounds that trigger an excessive emotional reaction, yet don’t seem to bother anyone else) able to shift their minds to completely eradicate this rather imposing issue. I’m not denying the value of modern medicine here, but I am simply stating the fact that we can help ourselves and either avoid future issues or reduce them in our lives. Hypnosis and guided imagery use the power of our mind to heal. It has been shown to reduce anxiety and pain in people with a wide range of conditions, including asthma, back pain, and headache and to help us feel better, freer, happier. I am inviting you today to breathe deeply, smile, observe your thought patterns and if needed to get some help. In a short amount of time we can see remarkable results. Lynne Cardinal sees clients individually and she offers group classes and workshops. She has offered Stress Management, Resilience, Burnout Prevention and Meditation workshops in the government and private sectors for over 30 years. She is also a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss. She is certified by Dr. Weiss in Past-Life Regression and she has a PhD (alternative) in Eastern Philosophy from India. She has studied extensively with Thomas Hübl on Transparent Communication and Principles of Transformation and Healing and Trauma work, and she also trained with Diane Hamilton in Conflict Resolution.

The 5th Annual Enriching Me and My Reiki Community on April 28th

This is going to be an AMAZING DAY!!! he changing membership of the Reiki community fascinates me. Thåere have been many students over the last few months that have been asking about their purpose with their Reiki Training. The students of late have been as varied as the stars.   Their lifestyles, educations, careers, age ranging from 20 – 70 years and experience with energy varies widely. I asked their question during Reiki meditation…..this is the response I received.  In earlier times, the white light energy was anchored into the planet by those in community…convents, monasteries, ashrams, temples and other praying communities regardless Communities like a garden, need nurturing and constant of the religious theories being taught.  The Divine used care. There is a group of beings called “Light Workers” any and all of these communities as a means of anchoring or “Sensitives”… as well as numerous other names… itself…all practices were valued, all practices employed.  whose work is to help anchor the white light energy on Today, those communities are in need support.  e

Speaking One’s Truth


have been studying quite a few books on Indigenous spirituality lately and will share what is repeated consistently in this article. As a heart-centered profound thinker, I am currently observing the general public’s interest in the expression “to speak one’s truth” and how important it is for the general public to hear that truth. (March 2019) I was born in an Indigenous family who denied its roots and ways yet in spite of that, the Native American Spirit in me has been the pivotal driving mechanism, the underlying current if you will, of my entire life. Speaking one’s truth anchored within the Indigenous culture is a powerful thing. It stems from an upbringing tethered to a culture rich in personal development through honour, self-discipline, introspection and the understanding of Great Spirit’s role and our own on Earth. Did you know that, in the old days, an Indigenous child was taught from birth, that they are a spirit with a body and that life is a sacred adventure of spiritual growth - that the most important relationship in Life was the one you developed with Great Spirit? Can you imagine living a life where you are taught to develop both the divine and the human relationship at the same time – where “religion” is your way of Life? When you are born with that paradigm, it sheds a different light on what is important. And it is this very paradigm the Priests and the Settlers of long ago did not understand. After living with a tribe for over 30 years, the priests did start to understand it but by then this sacred way of living life had already been judged and deemed the “work of the devil”. The Native Americans were written off as having no value. Yet, had it not been for their hospitality and generosity of spirit, the Settlers would never have survived their first winter here.

this beautiful planet in a way that is plugged into day to day life. You will come to know your purpose and who you are by the desire to find a more compassionate way to live on this planet; live with her animals, plants, care for her environment, engage with all her people. The meditation ended with a call to empowering all those with that calling….so whether you are drawn to Reiki as a means to do your work, or to any other method for consciously connecting with all that is, with compassion and gratitude…KNOW that you are here now to help


Imagine, starting at puberty, being an active witness to the Natural Laws on Earth within the concept of the Divine consciousness as backdrop to your decision-making. Today, most simply accept the status quo of whatever the popular trends might be and hope for the best. It used to be that the language of the Soul was the common thread among all Indigenous Peoples. Their way was to ensure that relationships were developed with integrity and honour so that Peace could prevail and dignity be maintained. It was a code of ethical behaviour. Through Ceremony they reinforced their relationship with Great Spirit and when the Peace Pipe was used, it was considered a sacred covenant with Great Spirit that needed to be honoured at all cost. At this time of writing, (March 2019), I am witnessing on TV, that to speak one’s truth from a point of introspection and honour restores the dignity of the Soul/Spirit connection and disproves the ignorance assigned to the great Peoples of the Americas. This is what is captivating: Honour and dignity are being put on display beautifully with integrity showing what it means to come from, not a point of materialistic thinking, but rather from a point of knowing the code of ethics that resides in the Soul/Spirit of each one and honouring it. This way of life is the vibration stored in the earth and that is native to the Americas. Are you ready to explore that mystical paradigm? If you are, reach out. I would love to speak with you. If there are enough of you, I will put on a series of classes or work one-on-one. May we all be blessed with forgiveness, mercy and harmlessness.

What Is The Breakthrough Experience? Part 2



n one sheet of paper, you’d come in and you’d write down everything that you don’t want in your life anymore. That could be every limitation chronologically, every trauma, every problem you ever had. Everything you put down on the list number one. Because for about the first two or three hours, we’re gonna systematically delete, delete, delete everything on that first sheet so it can’t hold you back. We’re gonna clear everything from your past and then in that last hour we’re gonna set up your future. We’re gonna create the future. So you’re gonna fill out another piece of paper, another piece of paper with everything that you want. Now, everything you want isn’t, I don’t want to feel anxious. I don’t want to be fat. I don’t want to smoke. I don’t want to have back pain. I don’t want to have a terrible partner. I don’t want to have a crappy job. No, no, no, no. If you ask for that, you’ll get more of it because your unconscious doesn’t process negatives. So you’re gonna ask for what you want. What do you want? Well, I want to be lean, I want to be in great shape. I want to have abs if that’s your thing. I want to be a happy, healthy non-smoker. I want to be able to interact with new people and be at peace, be comfortable, be the life and soul of a party if that’s your thing, but the positive thing that you want and we put that into your future. So we clear all that icky, bad stuff

from your past, so all those chains and those shackles are off of you. Get you to be firmly stated in the now, in the present, if you will, and then on the other second sheet of paper that you’d provide with me before you come, it’d be everything that you want. So essentially this is not really therapy, if you will. It’s about just taking away all of those problems and then setting up your future. And why this is different, why this model is different is it basically takes about three or four hours. When I used to do breakthrough sessions, it used to take way too long, about seven or eight hours. It used to take forever locked in a room with someone. Now I’ve got it down to a fine art of three to four hours. Whatever that problem is. It’s not about one problem. It’s, you’ve got to have multiple problems in your life that are somewhat overwhelming, like the big sphere here. You don’t know where to start. Now, you ask, how many of these do I need? You need one. One breakthrough session. You come in and essentially what it is, is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a breakthrough. People leave these sessions, it’s a quote, a recent client. She said to me, “Luke, it felt like I went to Canada Wonderland, like I was on a roller coaster. There was ups and I felt amazing. There was downs and I was frustrated and I felt horrible. Then it was ups. Then I went on that Ferris wheel, on that See Saw and upside down.” It’s kind of what it feels. It’s very intense. In fact, for that three or four hours when you come into my office, we lock that door and the only time you’re allowed to leave is when we’re done, or if you need

You Can Lose Weight Without Painful Surgery Are you having trouble Losing Weight, Keeping it off & Killing Evil Cravings? Then Dr. Luke Michael Howard can help you even when nothing else has worked. With he's specialist brand of Gastric Band Weight Loss Hypnosis all the way from the UK. Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis, is a Hypnosis Weight Loss Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 17 years now and has trained all over the world.

He has developed an advanced hypnotherapy technique that turns weak willed over eaters into empowered, slim & in control people in just 5 sessions. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 80% success rate. This is incredible when you think that Weight Watchers are only about 30% successful at best. This Powerful Non-surgical procedure has been well documented or FOX,CBS & ABC News as well as the Dr Oz Show.

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 Hypnoband 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 Lapband hypnosis, SO CAN YOU!

“I walked out 25lbs Lighter!” Kate had been over weight for the majority of her life- nearly 27 YEARS! She had tried every type of Weight Loss Gimmick, Diets, Supplements, Gym Memberships even Personal Trainers but nothing worked, until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promised I would do a testimonial for you.

to go to the washroom. Other than that, you have my 100% attention for 3 to 4 hours in that breakthrough session to revolutionize your life. This isn’t about just going and that problem that you had is gone. It’s literally about making a revolution in your life and a transformation. Some people have this misnomer, this limited belief that change is a slow and gradual process. No, change happens like that. To make the decision to change, you may procrastinate, procrastinate, put it off, put it off. That may take forever, but when you’ve made that decision, that’s fast. So that’s what a breakthrough session is. The old system still works. And I do still see clients that may come in for up to three sessions. Every session is absolute maximum because I get sick and tired by that point and the problem is generally gone in about one or two. Now, the best metaphor I have for that, essentially if you go and see someone you’ve got a problem and essentially you want to quit smoking, you’ve got anxiety. I’m just saying that, just imagine or whatever your problem is. It’s almost like you’re going and you have a glass and it’s full with toxicity, if you will, of your problem. Now you go and see me, we do some work and we essentially get rid of all of that crap in that glass. Yet, in between sessions, that glass won’t fill up like you’re seeing a psychotherapist or a counselor, but life gets in the way in and then maybe some liquid and some toxicity that gets into it. So it ends up being a metaphor. If you end up after every session, being about five steps forward and one step back, you’re still four steps forward after every session. After three sessions, Part 3 next issue Always Believe, Luke Michel Howard PhD Ottawa Clinical Hypnotist www.lukenosis.com

Free: Power of Presence Seminar by Dr. Doug Henderson Ph.D.

Date: Saturday May 4 2019

Location: The ‘Amphitheatre’ St. Paul’s University 223 Main St. Ottawa Registration: 8:45-9:30 am Duration: 9:30-4:30 am Parking: paid parking lot or street parking $10. Parking Vouchers for first 20 to register Seminar Cost: FREE Gift (donations accepted but no expectations). Extensive handouts

My real interest is in energy and raising levels of consciousness and helping those who have willingness and desire to do the same. When you do, life becomes smoother and dis-ease tends to drop away. Following my own health issues 15 years ago (2004) with 4 systemic cancers, I refused medical treatment and used a Quantum Technology to return to physical, emotional and mental well being; but more is required: Spiritual well being. Although I earned Ph.D.’s in Humanities and Theology neither of these are indicators of what is required to heal. Healing is about learning how to go within to make correction. It’s actually a by-product of this process and of raising your level of awareness & consciousness. But how do we do that? This is what I want to gift you. No one can fix us, the individual must do it: This is why we have Free Will Choice.

In addition, many fear losing their individuality or fear the unknown. At no point does anyone lose their individuality/personality; these are the fears that must be transcended. We also need to learn to disentangle our-self from our conditioning. Currently, the world is becoming more and more insane, so if we wish to cope in the future personal change must occur. I have learned many things along my path that may prove useful to help you to shorten the learning curve. I would like to share this with you, so your path can become smoother. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Hope to see you there. Love and Light. Doug .

Please send out to all those that you feel may benefit RSVP email to drdoug88@gmail.com

PS. This will go way beyond, “The Law of Attraction.” PPS: The original cost of this seminar was to be $200,00/person and despite the interest, I had a change of heart/mind as a result of reading some material that I will share with you

Greta Thunberg and March 15, 2019 Ian Prattis


n Sweden 2018, 15 year old Greta Thunberg sat outside the Swedish parliament with her water bottle, books, snacks and a homemade sign “SCHOOL STRIKE FOR CLIMATE.” Every Friday she left her school to do this. She says “No-one was interested, so I had to do it myself.” She was not alone for long. A flyer from her stated: “You grownups don’t give a shit about my future.” Sweden’s newspapers and reporters soon flocked around her. She still strikes every Friday. She spoke at the UN climate talks in Poland and called out world leaders for not being mature enough to tell it like it is. “Even that burden is left to us children” was part of her address to the global business elite at Davos. She even told the EU to double its climate change reduction targets as this would be its fair share of keeping the planet below the dangerous level of global warming. Greta affirmed her stance with a withering Ted Talk in Stockholm that left nothing behind and earned an ovation from a huge audience. She lit a fuse among young people around the world. And that fuse has brought the EU to institute further steps to reduce Climate Change in Europe. Thousands of students in Europe and over 1,000 cities worldwide joined her “FridaysForFuture” campaign. Her example came amidst very dangerous warnings about climate change. Thunberg remarked that “Change is on the horizon, but to see that change we also have to change.” Thunberg has Asperger’s syndrome. She cites her neuronal structures as providing her single pointed dedication to the issue of Climate Change. She quips, “I see the world kind of black-and-white. Either we go on as a civilization or we don’t.” This unusual warrior for Climate Change, now 16 years old, deserves the active attention of every adult in the world. She has put out a call for students worldwide to leave their schools on Friday March 15 to “Strike

Jenni Tipper, MSW Integral Master Coach (613) 858-2799 jenni@jennitipper.com jennitipper.com


for Climate,” bringing out the determination of young people to force the hand of political change. Her model for this was the Parkland School students in Florida, who walked out of school to protest gun violence. Greta holds the firm desire for global student strikes to be non-violent, with no hate and no damage. She insists that everyone become educated about the Paris Accords, respecting science and personally minimising their carbon footprint. She requests children to do their homework about Climate Change, because most adults have yet to do so. “Youth Climate Change US” are mobilized to point the Strike right at resistant politicians, demanding that they decarbonize the US economy, and furthermore make legislative action to combat the effects of climate change. The registered Climate strikes are planned in over 90 countries around the planet. Young people see that their present and future on the planet are at stake and they are pulling in university students and women to strike with them. British PM Theresa May asserted that the school strikes are “wasting lesson time.” Greta’s sharp response was, “Political leaders have wasted 30 years of inaction. And that is slightly worse..” Good bye Theresa May and your ilk! It is apropriate to ignore her, when over 3,000 climate scientists have given their full backing to the strikes. I feel strongly that the response globally to the March 15 strike will be beyond anything we have seen on our planet. Please do your part – Support and Help.

Energy Balancing Exchange Event (EnergyBEE) Otherworld Treasures, 29 Marier near Beechwood Friday, April 12th, 2019

Gita Arian Baack, PhD., Author of: “Moving Forward from Generational Trauma” Topic: “History is in the Present: Mind, Body and Spirit” s a child of Holocaust survivors, Gita had a ‘felt sense’ of knowing something that could not have been known. After 30 years of working in Organizational Development with organizations, teams and individuals, she decided to find out about this strange knowing and to enter into an unknown area of research – that of generational trauma and resilience. The resultant research broke new grounds in both the understanding of and, in proposing new ways to process trauma that go beyond traditional therapy. And yes, she was able to prove that her felt sense was right! As a result of this research, speaking with and running dialogues with people from many backgrounds, and a study of her own cultural context — a method of study called “Auto-ethnography” — Gita wrote a book: “The Inheritors: Moving Forward from Generational Trauma”, that aims to help people who have experienced or who have inherited experiences of devastating events. Gita is available for presentations and workshops and helping people to start up their own dialogue groups. She also runs poetry workshops for people who would like to use poetry as a means at getting at the heart of their emotions and felt sense of knowing. Her poetry book, “Poems of Angst and Awe” and “The Inheritors” will be available on the 12th at a base price of $15.00 for the poetry book, $20.00 for “The Inheritors”. She will also have on hand a guided journal that accompanies “The Inheritors” for $10.00. All 3 can be purchases at a discount for $40.00 (no tax). Please let her know if you are interested so that she can bring an adequate number of copies: gbaack@rogers.com


Describing the benefits People who work with Gita and her books find new ways to access and release the ever present, sadness, sense of loss and absence, outrage and even guilt and shame from their family legacy.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Body:

Can we have one without the other?


he gut is often referred to as the second brain. You have probably used phrases similar to the following to describe your feelings in certain situations: “Going with my gut”; “I have butterflies in my stomach”; “That was a gut-wrenching experience”. We use these expressions for a reason: the digestive system is sensitive to our emotions. Anger, anxiety, sadness, joy — all of these feelings (and others) can trigger symptoms in the gut. In Chinese medicine the stomach, pancreas and spleen are affected by worry. The liver and gallbladder are affected by anger and frustration. The large intestine is affected by grief and depression. The small intestine is affected by happiness and joy, or lack thereof. Moreover, this “gut/brain” connection goes both ways. The thought of eating yummy food can trigger the digestive process before food makes its way into the mouth. A troubled (or inflamed) digestive system can make the “thought” of eating seem repulsive. So, how does stress affect the gut…and how does the gut affect the brain? When a person experiences emotional stress a physical response takes place. This is often described


as the ‘flight or fight’ response. Adrenaline and cortisol are the biochemical results of stress and both of these hormones have significant effects on the health and integrity of the gut. This flight or fight response diverts blood flow away from the digestive system to supply the arms and legs with blood for “fleeing” from a stressful situation. This change in blood flow and the stressed state are reflected in changes in skin temperature, and patterns of inflammation, over regions of the body. Once a perceived threat has passed, blood flow and hormone levels return to normal and inflammation subsides but chronic stress can wreak havoc on your mind and body. Chronic stress eventually causes the digestive system to break down which suppresses the immune system. Once the immune system is weakened, the balance of good/bad bacteria in the gut becomes off kilter. “Healthy” bacteria in the gut produce B Vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids and other substances which are necessary to manufacture adequate levels of serotonin and dopamine, our “happy” neurotransmitters. Since the majority of serotonin is produced in the gastrointestinal tract, an imbalance of bacteria in the gut can affect the “brain” and mental health. When the gut is damaged by stress and the microbial population favors “unhealthy” types of bacteria, serotonin is not produced in adequate amounts. This

creates an environment that can contribute to anxiety and depression. So, the answer to the question is ‘No’! We cannot have a healthy body without a healthy mind and vice- versa. Over the past two decades, it has been determined through extensive clinical studies that inflammation is not just a result of stress and sickness, but the actual CAUSE of serious, life threatening conditions like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. This condition is silent but not invisible. So how can one “see” their current state of health? Thermography can see your body asking for help and it can identify the areas that need attention first. Thermography is the only assessment tool that can visualize inflammation: where it is, where it is coming from, and what it may lead. In a nutshell, this tool creates a high definition digital map of your body that illustrates temperature patterns — patterns that are consistent with inflammation. We recommend thermography as a way of evaluating your overall level of stress and your digestive health. Thermography can identify areas of inflammation or congestion in the digestive system. Thermography can also help you to visualize your level of stress. The thermal patterns that present on the skin may indicate liver stress, congestion in the small or large intestine or lymph related issues. This can help you and your practitioner to plan your treatment protocol accordingly. Thermography is not diagnostic for any specific condition, but it is highly sensitive and can identify very early signs of inflammatory or physiological changes in the body. What can one “do” about stress? For emotional stress, nothing is more important than moderate exercise. Heavy exercise may overtax your body and deplete physical resources. Dietary modifications are also important. Be aware that diet plans and supplements that contain a “cure all, good for all” tag line aren’t all they are cracked up to be. We each need a personalized nutrition and supplementation plan: unfortunately, there is no cookie cutter approach to our health. Regarding food, think light and fresh. Regarding emotions, practice patience, forgiveness, kindness, gratitude and let go of anger and resentment. Do you have the guts to be healthy? Why don’t you find out with thermography! The knowledge you gain offers you the power to take control of your future health and the length and quality of the rest of your life.

Daniel Roy


Principle Instructor / Certified Financial Planner

For the past several months, I’ve been getting a lot of calls from clients who have been struggling with their finances. Their main complaint is that things don’t seem to be moving forward for them. They all make a decent amount of income, they don’t carry an enormous amount of debt, yet things are not going the way they want. When I get calls like this, I will look at their financial structure to see if there is anything that needs fixing. Sometimes it’s a simple issue of making changes to their mortgage payments, consolidating some debt or changing things in their investment portfolios to improve the performance. I ask them to make a budget and diligently track every single expense for a couple of months to find out where the leakage is taking place. All these issues are mechanical and are relatively easy to fix. The real work begins when I try to uncover the cause for this situation. You see, your Net-Worth (assets minus liabilities) will not improve until your Self-Worth improves. Change your outlook to one of gratitude and be thankful for all that you have in the present moment. Develop an abundance mindset as opposed to focusing on the things that you don’t have in your life. Yes, you need to become aware of your cash flow so that you can make the proper choices with your money. Create a vision board filled with all the things that you want (financial, spiritual, relationships, health and wellness) and focus on the positive. I can tell you from personal experience and from helping hundreds of clients with this, that once all these elements come together, things start to change for the better. Dare to Dream!

A MUST ATTEND WORKSHOP: Open Mind Workshop 2019: Cancer

Qi-Matic Research Centre Presents The Open Mind Workshop


ancer is a scary word and often associated with death and suffering. However, as advances have been made in modern medicine and eastern medicine as well as alternative medicine, we can be more hopeful that one can live a normal life. In this workshop, you will find out how cancer can be conquered and prevented. The three presenters will explain and show you how! Mr. Zhaoqi Guo wastrained as a western doctor in China. He was also trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. He has been practicing acupuncture for over 30 years in Ottawa. He was addressed as Dr. Guo respectfully by his clients. By combining his knowledge of the East and West he has created his own unique combination of acupuncture points and occasionally adding herbs in order to help his cancer clients. He was also a researcher in the field of hormones. He has a keen mind in research and a sincere desire to help his clients which enabled him to develop many new ways of resolving his clients’ health issues and Cancer is one of those areas he has much success. He is well known even in the medical community in Ottawa for his work on cancer. He has received many awards from the international community on Acupuncture for his work. In this workshop, he will talk about how Yin Yang balance, hormones and our immune system works and how they affect the growth of cancer. He has many case studies to present with confirmation with western tests. Dr. Amanda Chan is a non-traditional chiropractor who focuses on Neuro-Optimization. She uses gentle, light touch techniques and breathing exercises to correct neuro abnormalities and in turn, optimize your body and your spine. Her patients reported that she is very intuitive and often knows where their concerns are without them having to tell her. Though Not a focus of her treatment, her patients have successfully reported that they feel less stressed and have in cases released negative emotions that affect their health. In this workshop, she will be focusing on emotional issues pertaining to cancer patients and will teach simple exercises to overcome negative emotions. Sifu James Foo is a scientist who is born with the special ability to see energy flow in the body and around the body referred to as aura. He is always experimenting with knowledge he found in the Eastern and Western medicine. His latest discovery is on Natural Killer cells (NK cells in short). NK cells is part of the innate immunity. It plays a role in directly inducing the death of tumor cells. We all have NK cells, however, their numbers are usually low and not enough to deal with major issues such as Cancer.

Darshan with Mother Meera By Reza Shadman


am very happy to announce that after a few years gap Mother Meera will be back in Ottawa on Saturday, May 11th.

Energy Therapy, Trauma Integration & Neuroplasticity Workshop: Heal Your Nervous Systems, Heal Your Life


t’s that time again. Time to tune up by tuning into your body, listening to it, feeling it, tracking and integrating its sensations, as well as rethinking and refeeling what the mind tells you so that all of you can become free again. Jaya Hollohan will be sharing some of the principles and tools from energy and trauma integration therapy, particularly the BodyTalk System and Somatic Experiencing, to help us to rewire our nervous systems, as well as other parts and systems, in ways that will transform your experience of your life. Jaya will also share the principles of neuroplasticity and offer practices, similar to the latter two modalities, which encourage us to heal at the deep cellular and nervous system levels. Neuroplasticity makes this possible by having us cultivate new thoughts, emotions, and experiences that when practiced, will integrate as chemical and physical changes within our various brains.


Join Jaya at her one-day transformational workshop and learn how to: • Use the principles and practices of BodyTalk energy therapy and Somatic Experiencing trauma integration therapy, to help you to understand how energy influences your health and how to give yourself a mini healing session. • Identify and shift the energetic roots of existing mental, emotional patterns to change their effect on your overall health. • Track and integrate bodily sensations that relate to bound survival energy from past thwarted fight, flight or freeze responses. • Use practical tools to calm, ground and rewire your nervous system and guide it to self-regulate more effectively. • Use principles and practices from scientific research on neuroplasticity and quantum physics to begin to change your thoughts, emotions, and related habitual behaviours, that when applied, will enable you to lead a more creative, joyful and peaceful life. Once you learn how to master and command the energy and matter of your body, your whole life will begin to revolutionize itself. Now is the time to thrive. Jaya will be offering this workshop on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 from 10am-6pm in Centretown, Ottawa. Cost is $250 (or early bird $200 until April 7th). Please RSVP to: jaya@energythrive.com to register and/or feel free to visit: www.energythrive.com and click on ‘Events’ for more information or to register.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Staying Healthy In Transit


ecently I had the good fortune of travelling to Australia. It was my first experience with long distance travel for many years, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I did know that people seem to get sick on long trips, whether as a result of being tired and depleted, or exposure to bacteria in airports and on planes-or a combination of both. Finding natural solutions to air travel challenges is not that difficult. I had homeopathic jet-lag pills, which were a godsend since I really didn’t sleep (did I mention it was a 23 hour flight in total, across a couple of time zones?). In addition, I had been taking a tincture of herbs for stress for many weeks. Couldn’t hurt. Essential oils would be, well, essential, on any trip, but especially those really long distance journeys because they can be used in a variety of ways to combat fatigue, infection and

anxiety (did you know Australia requires a Visa to visit? I found out at check in. My bad). I have a blend called “On The Mat” which I made sure to pack. It is called On The Mat because I use it to disinfect my yoga mat. But honestly, the power of thyme, manuka and other essential oils is indispensable when it comes to keeping yourself healthy. I also packed a bottle of lavender essential oil. This is first aid in a bottle. Pain relieving, calming, skin-cell regenerating, sleepinducing...for most people, this is a perfect remedy! For sleep, chamomile, valerian, marjoram or ylang ylang may help. For focus and concentration, and combating jet-lag if you do get it, try rosemary or basil. If you are traveling, come visit us first. We have lots of ideas to make your trip more enjoyable! ©2019 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St (Near Somerset).

A Gentle Solution for Back Pain

Pollution of Mind

By Yola Dunne, practitioner of the Healing and Shamanic Arts. (www.yoladunne.com) ollution of the mind is rampant in our culture. To be aware of this phenomenon is paramount to creating a healthy mind and body. Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with countless mental pollutants: news, social media, noise, traffic, drama, abuse, stress, etc… In an age when a two-hour text response lag can induce anxiety, it is the pollution of the mind that is the cause of the chaos, destruction of environment, and separation from the sacred dimensions of life without which we are lost as a species. We have become so accustomed to having discursive thoughts, we no longer have the ability to encounter the world with an open heart. We have adapted to living mostly in our heads, having forgotten and forsaken the essential need we have to connect with our bodies and the earth. We have become a culture of lost souls because of the fear generated by faulty thinking and destructive intention. Knowing when to disconnect from the influences of the drunken monkey mind is essential to our well-being and evolution. Practices such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and tai chi are very valuable. Yet nothing is more powerful than the sensuality of our instinctual nature for restoring trust in the sacred relationship between mind and body. Alleviating the discord caused by the monkey mind is most effectively done by embodying our spontaneous nature. It’s about losing our mind and coming to our senses. The power generated from the body when fuelled by the higher mind is a catalyst for transformation and much needed medicine for the world. Remember, the mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master. In Loving Service, Yola


By Dileep Korah ith pleasant weather on the horizon, that shelved new-year’s resolution of getting more exercise just may have a second chance. However, the wellintentioned weekend warrior athlete can often get sidelined with back pain. Are these injuries self-induced or could it be that you are prone to them due to postural imbalances? There are many possible contributing factors to back pain. The usual suspects include excess weight, stress or lack of exercise. But isn’t that why you want to exercise – to lose that excess weight, release stress and get into shape? An evaluation of your entire body by your osteopath can give tremendous insight as to the potential causes of your back pain. Key things to check should include: integrity of the spine and back muscles; the head, knees and feet for their impact on balance; the sacroiliac joint and abdominal organs/muscles due to their proximity to the low back; and the fascia which is the connective tissue that interconnects the entire body. However, sometimes you need to consult with your medical doctor for example if your back pain is accompanied by fever, new bladder problems, or unexplained weight loss. If you are someone who has tried more aggressive therapies, feel worse after such treatments, or have lingering back pain that can’t seem to be solved by other approaches, osteopathic manual therapy may be the solution for you. Techniques are very gentle with the goal of optimizing body mechanics. Its holistic approach addresses the cause of back pain at the level of the muscles/bones, organs, and nerves. Who would have thought that your back pain may be due to compensations caused by that old injury from last year’s exercise resolution? Treat your body and spine with the respect that it deserves and let your osteopath get you back into the game, inspired and ready to meet your fitness goals.

Journey Within- Self Mastery Workshop


April 2019



AwAkening The 3 CenTres A D i a m on d Approac h S e min a r The Head, Heart, and Belly are subtle centres within our individual consciousness, sometimes referred to as subtle organs of perception and action. When these centres are opened and activated, they help guide one’s soul to deeper realms of our True

Nature. In this seminar we will work to understand and open each centre, through inquiry, sensing, and meditation practices. The Belly centre is where the soul meets the ground of the earth. It helps to ground our realization and deepen our connection to our body, and allows us to function more optimally in the world, bringing a lived Presence and practicality to our lives.

The Heart centre brings attunement, sensitivity, empathy, and the capacity to feel one’s emotions and qualities of essence. When the Heart centre is open, we taste life to its fullest.

The Head centre is fundamentally the centre of awareness, discrimination, and understanding. When it is open and able

to freely engage experience, it is characterized by a complete open-mindedness, where we feel we are free of historical perspectives, positions, and identification. Then we can become open to the mystery of who and what we are. June 28, 29, & 30, 2019

Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal Do you seek harmony, health and community in your life? Wishing to experience a deeper relationship with nature and unseen realms? Are you called to a path of healing service? “The PMT apprenticeship has changed who I am to the core and given me the ability to navigate life with grace and purpose. Connecting to this lineage has healed parts of me that were disconnected or broken. It has given me words for truths that I have always instinctively KNOWN, and given me a community of family that understands the world in the same way. My path of service is clear and I feel empowered to follow it with joy, wisdom and support.” ~ Alaina H., Sebastopol, CA

This Apprenticeship has been carefully crafted to offer people from all walks of life a heartfelt initiation into the healing power and earth honoring ceremonial artistry of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT), as originated by world-renowned kamasqa curandero don Oscar Miro-Quesada. Inspired by the living soul which sustains the various ancient traditions of Peruvian Curanderismo, the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition maintains contemporary relevance in its dedication to compassionate personal and planetary transformation. Sanctioned by the PMT Lineage and by don Oscar, curandera and stellar teacher YOLA DUNNE is offering the PMT Apprenticeship in Chelsea, Québec with two alternative opportunities to attend Part One, The Call to Heal (see below). As a PMT sanctioned teacher, Yola draws on over 30 years of practice and experience in the healing arts. Her path began in 1993 in the Dür Bön Tradition, a pre-Buddhist shamanic tradition of Tibet where she assisted in many ceremonies. These profound experiences paved the way for her service as auxilia (ceremonial assistant) to don Oscar, and her deep apprenticeship in the living lineage of the PMT. Yola serves her community with a thriving private healing practice, ceremonial offerings, and workshops.
