Why Forrest Yoga is For You!

By Ana Forrest, creatrix of Forrest Yoga and author of the new book, “Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit” “Forrest Yoga is in essence all about the truth of what works. I developed Forrest Yoga as I was working through my own healing and helping solve my students’ problems. I created Forrest Yoga to fill in the gaps that the other yoga systems lacked. Part of my inspiration for Forrest Yoga truly, was the lack of assistance I had in my own process from the yoga systems that were already out there. Forrest Yoga provides the support and the tools to delve into life’s intricate challenges, and deal with physical, emotional and soul injuries. Forrest Yoga is absolutely for everyone. Forrest Yoga is not an ‘easy’ practice, but it’s for all ages and abilities and if you’re injured, it’s the perfect place to come and learn how to work with your injury or trauma and start to heal yourself. A beginner does beginner poses. An injured person is taught to modify the poses to heal the injury. An advanced person learns more advanced poses. We teach what is appropriate to the student. A basic Forrest Yoga class starts with setting the intent; then breathing exercises that cleanse brain, blood, and steady nervous system, followed by warm up poses including twists, forward bends and abdominals. After

the warm up comes the hot part: sun exercises and B series with vignettes, handstands and forearm balances, leading toward the apex poses of the class. The carefully designed sequences warm you up for the more advanced poses, and then warm you down from them in an intelligent way. The last section of class down-regulates the nervous system in to savasana. We practice in 80-degree heat because sweating is part of the cleansing and healing properties of Forrest Yoga and embodies the sacred Sweat Lodge. Throughout the class, the teacher is cueing and encouraging deep, revitalizing breathing in every pose. What we are facing now is not the same thing as our ancestors. For example, we have a host of ailments and structural problems that our bodies are manifesting today due to our lifestyle. Because we sit for hours with terrible posture in front of computers and TV and on our furniture, it has a foul effect on our digestion and elimination processes. Every culture that I work with has really bad problems with assimilation and constipation. People are constipated everywhere I go. Do you understand that our own shit poisons us? Our people are plagued with painful low backs, necks, wrists, headaches and breathing problems. There is an epidemic of respiratory, immune system issues due to pollution that we all live with. Also epidemic are high stress levels and the diseases that stem from stress. Some more of the problems our people face are an inability to hold focus. We have hyper-stimulated brain patterns all the time, so our people are getting spacier. People’s ability to focus on what they are doing and what they are feeling is really fractured because they are profoundly disconnected from their body intelligence and breath. This mind/body disconnect means people have lost a crucial skill for moving through life in a wise

way. Forrest Yoga is teaching our people how to gather intelligent information based on tracking the feelings in body. Through Forrest Yoga you get your physical health and strength and also a place in which to call and welcome your Spirit back home. Forrest Yoga teaches how to embody your Spirit. The separation of body and Spirit has created deep anguish for our people. Each Forrest Yoga pose becomes a fascinating arena to explore embodying your Spirit.”

any cultures and persons extol the importance of a high intelligence quotient (IQ). Very little focus or attention is directed to the equally important quality of emotional quotient (EQ). A person who has a very high ability to access, “juggle”, and appropriately articulate the array of emotions that present themselves continuously is truly an “emotional genius”. This person has a very high EQ. “E-motions” are the GPS of our Psyche. They are the navigating compass that guides us in how to motivate ourselves and move forward. After much trial and error and with increasing wisdom, we learn how to interpret our emotions in order to direct our path towards our true Self. There are eight basic emotions. Four of them are the so-called “good” emotions and they are: love, joy, curiosity and surprise. The other four are the so-called “bad” emotions and they are: anger, fear, sadness and disgust. They are neither “positive” nor “negative”. They are all necessary for a balanced, whole life. Almost all of the other emotions are a blend of these basic building blocks. For example, melancholy is a mixture of joy and sadness. The Greek philosophers used the word “kairos” to describe the state of being well-connected to all of one’s emotions in a given moment. They used the word “khaos” to describe the state of being in complete and continuous harmony with all of one’s emotions, while artfully articulating and acting upon them. Khaos is another form of emotional genius. According to Greek mythology, Dionysus had three births: his first was to his earth mother, Semele; his second to his father, the god, Zeus; and his third to his maternal grandmother, Urea. Urea was the daughter of Gaia, the Earth Mother. This third birth was meant to depict that Dionysus was connected to the whole cosmos, as well as to the physical and mental realms. His emotional interactions were not merely limited to his daily thoughts, feelings and achievements. He had a “green consciousness” because he was “environmentally” connected to the whole Greek cosmic Psyche via his maternal ancestry. Our present political leaders are predominantly male and many of them are almost totally bereft of environmental sensitivity. Consequently, our environment is severely at risk. An emotional genius knows that the environment in which we live is crucial to our overall well-being and survival as a species. Thus, our leaders, both male and female, need to have a very high EQ, as well as a very high IQ. René Descartes famously said that we are a thinking animal. He was correct as far as he went. It is also

true that we can do what I call, “clearing thinking”. In my hypnotherapy practice, I teach people how to temporarily clear their minds of all thoughts in a safe surrounding. Basically, we turn off the sympathetic nervous system. We rely only on the “vagus” nervous system (the parasympathetic nervous system). In this totally open and fully alert state, thinking is totally unnecessary! A person in this state is completely open to suggestion and/or auto-suggestion. When the Dalai Lama was asked how Buddhists deal with “negativity”, his answer was that they have no concept of or word for “negativity”. In other words, negativity is a “thought form”, not a reality! When we clear our thoughts, there can be no negativity. No wonder the Dalai Lama and many other spiritually evolved emotional geniuses have a perpetual smile! This article was written in June of 2014 by: Richard M.

Bringing Grief out of the Shadows…

Grief – Loss through Time Vonne Solís, Angel Therapy Practitioner®


s I write this article I am on vacation in the near tropics. While out sailing the other day with a small group of people, I became pensive looking at the wide expanse of brilliant blue and green ocean, the bright sunshine, the odd island spotting the horizon, the playfulness of two dolphins that made their quick bow to the boat and then dived below the surface. No one on board (not even my family) could possibly know the depth of loneliness I was feeling missing my daughter. Why? One couple on board had just returned from their son’s wedding. Another child is getting married soon and there was much talk about the parent’s hope for their last grown one to join the ranks of the married in due course. The assumption throughout this general chatter, while my husband and I sat quietly nearby and as conversation was eventually directed our way, was that we shared similar or the same hopes and experiences thus far in our family life (the couple noticing our own adult son with us). I didn’t and couldn’t respond. What could I say? That my dreams had been shattered after the loss of one of my two children and all their joyous talk of their own thriving off-spring was actually making me feel worse. I politely removed myself from the group and stretched on the bow of the boat, thinking about the struggles that always face the bereaved when others take for granted there has been no family tragedy. For the griever, there is and always will be that part of the heart, a fragment or larger reserved for the most poignant of our sorrow. On this sailboat, as I looked all around at the big blue sky, I prayed silently to feel my daughter’s presence with me. To hold me tight amidst all else that could not. I felt somewhat grateful that I have come far enough to be happy for other parents (on board and in general) that do not now and will not ever know the loss of a child. I felt even more grateful that long ago I found the knowledge and subsequently developed the discipline to quickly turn my thoughts away from ones that are negative and surely would consume me, to ones that feel more joyous and are of much greater value to my healing (which I did on that boat right then and there). But through this experience yet again (I’ve done this before), I recognized all too well that the place in the heart (and soul) reserved for the most poignant of pain is like the surfacing of a small


scream or ouch from a burn or a pinch or a stubbed toe or banged funny bone. While we don’t generally stay conscious of these hidden and vulnerable but potentially painful spots until they are hit, wow, does it ever hurt when they are! Grief is the same. While I no longer feel the need to yell out my loss to people unaware, I still at every appropriate opportunity seek to make people aware of the enormity of ongoing issues that affect the bereaved. For them not to take it for granted that every blessed experience they are going through and excited by can be shared equally by everyone around them. Divine Healing is available at Chapters.

What Dreams May Never Come by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.


e see dreams as associated with a future state of self into which we think we grow and make manifest. But dreams are not this. Dreams are ego selfexpectations disguised as noble expressions of the Higher Self, and confused with truth. Dreams are egodriven illusions and not Kristic (Christ consciousness). They lack integrity with the present moment, and they are not of Divine will. You may feel that this declaration denies the human capacity to stir promise into something real, and that without dreams there is only a stagnation and lack of vision. These are all mind control programs, for dreams are speculations of the mind. There is no substance of the Divine in this, only an assertion of the ego and stories of how life should be. Often, they are entwined with material possessions, financial gain, and accomplishment, or attached to outcomes. Therefore, when your dreams die, when the veil falls, or something interferes, it is devastating to the ego. This is a shock because the ego sees that it has not really been in control. “It wasn’t supposed to be this way”, says the ego. Fear ensues as the ego scrambles to regain control. So if you wish to manifest a ‘dream’, let it be clear from where the energy sources: let it be of Divine substance. Base it in eternal truth, from which there is ever-expanding expression. Let your Higher Self direct you into alignment. There comes a time in your ascension when activation of your monad (the seed atom) shifts you to leave behind the ego will: the movement to planetary service supersedes the individual’s assertions of must-haves and desires. It is to surrender to your higher purpose, and engage with Divine flow. Surrender cannot be in alignment with fear. You

lead with faith, and respond, engage, and act for group consciousness and the highest good of all concerned. This by no means implies becoming passive, without boundaries, or putting oneself last. On the contrary, to be fully surrendered to your highest purpose, you must have the inner core strength to hold anchor with your highest expressions at all times. This requires a firm sense of Self, a capacity to be consciously discerning, and a willingness to be flexible and compassionate with others while self-respecting. This is why many struggle with holding Kristic energies, for it means knowing one’s God-Self while acknowledging the God-Self in others. There is so little to consider of the future when you hold Christ consciousness as priority in life. Truly, only the ‘now’ moment of truth can serve as the foundation for expansion, one focused moment unfolding into the next: this is the intention. We are currently ascending into groups of massive awakening. It’s within our grasp to bring the embodiment of Christ consciousness into the masses. The DNA blueprint for this is already anchored into the planetary field, far surpassing what was held on Earth through Jesus in our previous history. The global anchoring of this may still seem to be far in our future, but the clarity within oneself to allow this and embody Christ Consciousness begins and ends in each ‘now’ for each individual.

Joah Bates, D.O. (UK)


Over 25 years experience When you find yourself thinking of your future, you may indeed see your ascended Self as less fragmented and more whole and, more at peace in acceptance. Yet, do not mistake this for future either. For simultaneously, you are this in the past, present and future – the ‘now’. Let go of who you think you should be. Do not create separation within yourself through what might be of you later. Invite your whole Self into your consciousness of ‘now’. Krist Consciousness: own it, claim it, be it. This not a dream. No, your ego dreams may not come, but your truth is already within. Copyright 2014 All Rights Reserved. (blog, resources, case studies). Specializing in clearing stubborn patterns.

Overcoming Obstacles


e are all called to overcome obstacles in life whether it’s related to our finances, relationships, work, conflict, or illness. There are many things that we wish for, but there are always challenges that we must overcome before we succeed. Instead of thinking negatively and giving up on your dreams, why not figure out how you can overcome these obstacles and make them part of your success story? After all, the toughest of obstacles only serve to strengthen us and make victory that much sweeter! Leaping Past Your Obstacles to Achieve Success Everyone would be rich, healthy, happy, and successful if it weren’t for those brick walls that spring up unexpectedly and discourage us, but the real success stories all start with some problem, failure or obstacle. The truth is, there will always be things that stand in our way. That’s precisely why we all have a choice: we can choose to believe we can overcome any obstacles, or we can choose to give up. It always starts with a choice.

Setting Attainable Goals to Overcome Obstacles You need to be able to set attainable, realistic goals so you can leap over the obstacles that are in your way on the path to success. Setting goals is a great way to move past obstacles because it gives you a time-line to help you get things done regardless of the barriers along your path. This will also help you make constant progress toward your goals through prioritization and organization. Setting goals is important to overcoming obstacles because it allows you to envision your future and create something concrete to work toward. Many people become apprehensive and nervous when they only see barriers and roadblocks standing in their way. These people see the obstacles but don’t see the goal at the end of their journey. Sadly, they give up before they get started. But this doesn’t have to be you!

For example, if you need a college degree to meet your ultimate goal, consider the application process as your first mini goal and move forward from there, one step at a time.

Using Affirmations and Positive Self-Talk to Break Down Mental Barriers Leaping past your obstacles is easier when you have a positive mindset. Affirmations and positive self-talk help you program your mind for success. For example, you may find it easier to move forward with your goals if you said, “I am capable of succeeding without feeling overwhelmed or unfulfilled.” By implementing affirmations you will create a positive inner dialogue so you can overcome any obstacle with confidence and purpose. Moira Hutchison CTACC CCHt Hypnotherapist, Life Coach & 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 www.WellnessWithMoira. com and sign up for Step One of “The Get Unstuck Method” - it’s free!!

Creating Bite-Sized Goals Goals often help people see the obstacles they thought existed don’t exist at all, or they were just not as insurmountable as they first thought. After all, there’s no need to make a mountain of a molehill! On the other hand, if your obstacles are significant ones, you may find it beneficial to break these obstacles down into mini goals. When you set attainable, realistic goals you are breaking the obstacles into manageable bite-sized pieces that you can overcome one at a time.

Holding the Perfection

Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher, healer


hen we ask for healing we tend to come at it from a place of focusing on the unwellness. I might ask for my sore knee to feel better for example. I would focus my energy on the aching knee sending healing energy to the situation. I think we all know what we focus on expands. If I am focusing on unwellness, that is what I am perpetuating. That is definitely not what I want. I have learned the most powerful and effective method of healing is really not about healing at all, but rather about reminding the body of its innate perfection. When balanced the body is its own perfect healing machine. So how did we get out of balance and how may we return. First step is always seeing the body in its innate perfection. Second step is to assess where we got out of balance and how we may remove the imbalances thusly restoring the body to it’s natural capacity for wellness. Always see and visualize the body as whole, complete and perfect. Send the message to the body that you are grateful for its vibrant health and radiant well-being. Praise the body, love the body. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you. If the right knee hurts send loving gratitude to the healthy left knee. The right knee will naturally want to follow suit and receive the love and gratitude. Always focus on what is working, not what is not working. There is a wonderful Gregg Braden video of a healing team in a Chinese alternative hospital healing a large abdominal tumour in a woman by focusing on it and chanting already healed. In three minutes we watch the tumour completely shrink. I am not suggesting in any way not to get standard medical care, but augment your healing by seeing the body already healed. In this way you are holding the perfection that already exists and allowing all mind held imperfections to effortlessly fall away. Unless we support the woundedness it cannot stay. It is our belief system of disease, infirmity and aging that supports the unwellness. Put your energy toward health and life, not death and deterioration. In every moment, say “ I choose life. I choose vibrant health and radiant being.” In every moment remember: do I want my thoughts to support health or illness? Restoring balance may not happen overnight as we have been misdirecting our thoughts to our body for as long as we have been consciously thinking. We can with diligence and loving attention change our thoughts to support vibrant well-being for body, mind and spirit. Remember what we focus on expands. When you become aware you are having a negative, fearful, or distrusting thought, cancel it and replace it with a positive loving thought of gratitude. For example, when grumbling in the after work traffic on the way home, change your focus to gratitude for a job to leave, a home to come home to and a vehicle to bring you

Abundant Life Coach Spiritual Counsellor Psychotherapist www. 613-236-8852 Insurance Receipts Available there. See how much better you feel when you turn it around. Gratitude heals negative thinking better and faster than anything I know. Remember the three ascension attitudes are praise ( for God, for life, for consciousness, for starters), love and gratitude. If you are feeling negative, notice it, allow it with love then turn it around. Do not judge yourself for being negative-that is not productive. Just allow it with love and let it dissipate. Our minds are our biggest healing tools and our biggest impediments. Start monitoring your thoughts. Love, allow, accept what you notice, then reframe into positive healing energy. Your body, your mind and your spirit will thank you. By holding the perfection not only of your body/mind system but the world in general you send out a healing vibration that reaches all life everywhere and allows the planet and all sentient life upon her to return to the divine perfection of her origin. Hold the perfection, be the perfection, live the perfection and watch how quickly your life changes. You already are whole, complete and perfect. Remove the limitations and distortions imposed by mind and watch your self soar. Rev. Sherry Harris is a psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher and healer.

Basics of chanting The one-sentence secret of chanting is: What you chant is what you become. Go into the divine condition. Give yourself fully to the mantra or Divine Soul Song. Become the mantra. For example, when you chant divine love, you become the presence of divine love on Mother Earth. There are two ways to chant: silently and aloud. Chanting silently vibrates the smaller cells and spaces in the body; it is yin chanting. Chanting aloud vibrates the bigger cells and spaces: it is yang chanting. Both ways are correct.

Why and how chanting works For thousands of years, singing or chanting mantras has been one of the most powerful methods of spiritual development. Chanting can greatly benefit all aspects of life because it removes blockages on the level of soul, mind, and body. Soul blockages are bad karma. Mind blockages include negative mind-sets, attitudes, ego, attachments, and more. Body blockages include energy and matter blockages. To chant is to gather spiritual fathers and mothers and, especially, the Divine to help transform any issues. Chanting mantras works because they carry soul frequency and vibration with love, forgiveness, compassion, and light. Soul frequency and vibration can transform the frequency and vibration of all life.

or both. Always chant silently when lying down so as not to drain your qi (energy). Chanting complements other forms of worship Chanting is not limited to one tradition or belief system. In fact, almost all traditions chant though they may use a different term. Some recite a prayer over and over. Others sing a special song or hymn. To chant is to offer your love to humanity and all souls. Chanting by yourself is powerful, but chanting with others multiplies the benefits you receive.

So, You’re Having a Baby. Congratulations!


Tylenol once touted as being the only safe overthe-counter (OTC) to take for pain during pregnancy has fallen out of favour. Acetaminophen products (ie: Tylenol) break down into a toxic product called N-acetylp- benzoquinone imine (NAPQI). “Increased levels of NAPQI reduce the (child’s) ability to detoxify a host of toxic chemicals in the environment, increasing oxidative stress which leads to protein, lipid, and nucleic acid damage from free radicals. Epidemiological evidence also supports the association of increased acetaminophen usage with autism, asthma, and attention deficit with hyperactivity”, Great Plains Laboratory. A Swedish population-based cohort study that was conducted on all live birth revealed that babies whose mothers took Tylenol for even one week during pregnancy had increased cognitive and developmental problems. The greater the Tylenol intake, the higher the rate of brain and motor development problems.  However, ibuprophen (trade name Advil or Motrin) causes no such toxicity in mom or child.  Cuba enjoys the lowest rate of autism in the world despite vaccinating their babies. Tylenol, however, is neither sold nor prescribed for pregnant or lactating women and is likely a big factor in preventing Autism, asthma, ADD(HD) and allergy. If you develop a ‘wicked’ thirst, get tested for gestational diabetes. Increased sugars in urine pull out greater volumes of water from the body leading to increased thirst.  Gestational diabetes needs to be properly managed. Diabetes stops at the birth of the baby. Maintain your current exercise pattern during your pregnancy. If too strenuous, consider switching to Yoga to maintain muscle tone and take daily walks.  If you


ere are a few tips for mothers-to-be so that your baby will be as healthy as s/he can be. During pregnancy, be sure to eat lots of fruits and vegetables. If you do not like veggies, try juicing. Veggies juiced along with fruits will sweeten and mask their flavours. Adding low glycemic sweeteners as honey, maple syrup or agave plus a pinch of salt will turn juicing into something you look forward to. Champion juicers open lots of possibilities as you can get grain mills and other attachments You can put frozen fruits through and what comes out is a sugar-free, taste-popping sherbet that is beyond compare. You’ll want them throughout the hot summer months. Taking vitamins, especially folic acid (before and during your pregnancy is important). Getting outside in the sunshine for at least 20 minutes without sunscreen (unless you are really fair skinned or you are a redhead) will enable you to manufacture Vitamin D. Many Canadians are deficient in Vitamin D, Vitamin B6 and Zinc. Eat foods rich in antioxidants: Vitamin D, A, C, E, B6, B12 and K and incorporate them into your diet. Taking multi-strain probiotics cannot be emphasized enough.  Studies show a reduction in childhood allergies when mothers took probiotics during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Infants’ intestines are populated with ‘bifidobacterium infantis’. They pick up beneficial bacteria when passing through the birth canal and while breastfeeding.  ‘Infantis’ strain of probiotic is sold at health foods stores.  ‘Align’, a new product that is purported to heal irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut and colitis, is 100% ’Lactobacillus Infantis’.  When I want to re-establish good bowel health in adults, I begin probiotics in the order that they should have in Nature, starting with ‘infantis’. Pregnant women tend to eat foods higher in calcium and often get constipated. Chia, flax and other combinations of seeds taken daily will help keep bowels moving regularly, along with drinking at least 8 glasses (64 oz) of water and taking a good amount of probiotics.

Monique Briand,


Separating Without Lawyers (This is an encore edition of my most popular column ever from October, 2010.) “Do we have to see lawyers?” This is the most common question I am asked at the end of mediation. After spending a number of hours working out the best possible settlement for themselves and their children, and after reviewing in detail the draft Separation Agreement I have prepared setting out their settlement, many couples feel they are ready to sign their Agreement on their own. They don’t want to incur the extra time and expense involved in taking the draft Agreement to separate lawyers for review. Some of the comments I hear include the following: “We know the Agreement like the back of our hands and we’re happy with it. Can we just sign it with you?” and “Why should we make more money for lawyers who have never heard of us and weren’t here during the mediation?” For many years, I used to insist that couples see separate lawyers at the end of mediation for what is called “independent legal advice.” I had been taught that this was the only way to ensure that clients knew what they were doing when they made their agreements in mediation. Over the years, however, so many couples have asked to sign their Agreement just with me that I began to look at this issue differently. I realized that many couples are able – with the help of an experienced mediator who is a lawyer by training – to reach fair agreements on their own. They may need information about the family law of Ontario, they may need help generating options to resolve each issue, and they probably need some assistance overcoming the inevitable obstacles in their path as they work towards settlement. But in the end many couples can do this. Of course, there will always be instances where one or both persons should have independent legal advice, and I am the first one to recognize this. In cases where there has been abuse, or where there is a serious power imbalance, or where someone is agreeing to something that is clearly not in his or her best interests, I don’t just recommend independent legal advice, I insist on it. For most couples, however, it is enough to thoroughly review the law of Ontario with them, to point out that what they are agreeing to differs from what the law says and, most important, to talk in mediation about their reasons for wanting to do things differently. Often I will say, “Mary, a lawyer for you might say this decision is unfair for you. Can you talk a bit about why you feel comfortable doing things this way?” or, “John, a lawyer for you might be concerned about this. Can you say

613.237.7335 a bit more about why you think this is fair for you?” Mediation is about a couple making their own decisions and, as long as those decisions are informed ones, I support them. In the end, here’s what it comes down to for me. Mediation is all about self-determination, about a couple’s right to decide on their own what is best for them and their family. The process is all about making the best choices. The decision whether to involve lawyers at the end of the process is another choice. Now, when couples ask, “Do we have to see lawyers?” I simply reply, “What would you like to do?” Like all decisions in mediation, this is their choice. Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa law school, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

That sick feeling that does not go away when they are at work, but feel much better when they go out for a walk barefoot in the park. Time to think outside the box, or just get rid of the box all together. For more info, check out on Google “Death By Smart Meters”, these articles will open your mind to what is ruining our health and well being. Also check out a new DVD called Take Back Your Power, it is a real eye opener to what and how is quietly killing us one day at a time.

Do you notice that a lot of people that you see every day on the street are always looking down, no eye contact as they walk along the street on they way to work or play, they are answering text messages on their smart phones that have to be answered before anything else that is going on in there world.

in a brain fog. Turning us into a zombie nation, walking no talking. Now is the time to Take Back Your Power before it is to late.

Hypnosis for Exercise


t is certainly hard to give the first step to do something new, especially something that will take you out of your own comfort zone. Sometimes the lack of selfconfidence combined with negative thoughts from the subconscious holds a person that is totally capable of exercising from actually doing it. It is not a matter of being lazy, it is a mind issue. Several people want to change, they want to give a step towards a better future, they want to exercise regularly and live better, however there is always something that prevents them from doing so. Their biggest enemy is their own mind. A very good solution that is often forgotten by most people is Hypnosis for exercise. Hypnosis for exercise has a lot of power! One single session of hypnotherapy is able to trigger several different good things in a person’s mind. Exercise Ottawa hypnosis is able to totally change a person’s mind and help this person feel better and take better care of their fitness. Thanks to Exercise Ottawa hypnosispeople will FEEL like exercising, they will need exercising in their lives. This will happen because once a person starts hypnosis sessions he or she will have a professional working on the subconscious, relaxing and giving it positive energies to actually move on and exercise. The techniques created were designed to program the whole mind to not only exercise but also to feel the need to do more exercise every

day. This technique is extremely useful not only for men but for women as well. Regardless of the age, hypnosis has proven itself to being a successful solution. The Exercise Ottawa hypnosis supports your cause. This incredible and infallible technique has been used for several years now. Once a person tries it he or she will never need anything else. Thousands of people were already able to improve their lives by exercising and keeping their body fit. This is also a very good technique for children, since it will not traumatize them during the whole process. Some people want magic to happen, and they never move from the couch, however if this very same person tries hypnosis he or she will certainly notice that it will be a solution. Hypnosis will relax the body and put the mind back into place. Thanks to hypnosis people feel the motivation from inside out, which is the best way to start changing. Hypnosis sessions are not long and provide the person comfort. The environment for these sessions is calm, clean and relaxing, which allows the patient better chances to improve themselves. The way hypnosis sessions for exercising were designed allow the patient to have results from day 1. The body will absorb the energy waves and will soon incorporate them. The sessions will also help your body feel the need to exercise. You will never have to suffer in order to exercise every day. Try hypnosis and improve your life painlessly regardless of your age, shape or even nationality.

When you no longer “love” each other


By Marlene and Bob Neufeld


ouples often come to us asking what to do. They may say something like, “we aren’t in love any more”. Our experience is that what people really mean when they say this, is that the pain in the relationship exceeds the potential they can see. When they first meet, couples often see a huge potential in each other. They have fantasies that this is the person who will finally meet all of their unmet needs, this person really sees and understands them, this person is the other part of them that they’ve been looking for. Of course, some of this is the chemicals of dopamine talking, that rush of hormones which makes everything the other person does look exciting and interesting. However, after a period of time, due to an inevitable rubbing up against each other’s “sore spots” many people start to feel that the pain in the relationship has gotten more than any possible potential. Not only are their fantasies proven wrong, but they are no longer willing to give the other person the benefit of the doubt. Stinginess takes over from generousity and expansive appreciation. We believe that to keep love alive you need to ensure that the pain is reduced. This can be done by revealing, listening generously to each other, understanding how conflict happens and learning to communicate in blamefree unarguable ways. [Note that we have expanded on these topics on our website, see www.marleneandbob. com/articles.htm. We can also become sensitively aware of each other’s “sore spots”, not to protect each other from them, but to become generous when we inadvertently rub against them. We can also keep love alive by ensuring that the potential is enhanced by generating appreciation, and taking risks and approaching our discomfort by moving towards our partners.

It is important to remember that love is a conscious choice not just a nebulous feeling of attraction fueled by dopamine. It is not something that happens to us and then disappears or lasts. When we first meet, we put our best self forward, give each other the benefit of the doubt, and usually are willing to do things that interest our partners, just to be with them. If we continued to act like that in our long term relationships, we might have fewer people who say they no longer “love” each other.

Migraine and Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac.


he migraine headache is a neurological disorder, which can manifest as severe headaches, often on one side, and often with a pulsating quality. They may or may not be preceded by a visual aura which can look like a sparkling jagged obstruction to the vision or a blind spot. There may be nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, a tingling sensation in a limb, and other symptoms. From the perspective of Chinese medicine, headache differentiation is based on patterns of pathogenic factors and the location of headache. Chinese Medicine will analyze your body’s unique individual disharmonies and develop a prescription designed precisely to correct your specific imbalances for long-term success. Basically acupuncture approaches migraines by reducing vasodilatation, which is where the blood vessels from the brain widen due to the relaxation of the smooth muscles within the vessels wall; since there is now more room for blood your blood pressure drops. The reduction of the vasodilatation gives the brain more blood, which is what the brain needs. The Chinese believe rather than feeding the brain drugs to help with the pain due to the lack of blood, why not give the brain the blood it needs? Not only does it save you from putting chemicals into your body, but it helps solve the problem and gives the migraine patient the relief from the body’s own constriction of blood vessels. Chinese Medicine not only helps you relieve the symptoms associated with tension headache, migraine, cluster headache and sinus headache but also the causes or factors of the headaches. One of the main factors that cause migraine and headaches is stress. Since it is almost impossible to avoid stress in today’s world, treatment must be focused on helping you recover quickly form stress in order to avoid harmful migraine or headaches. Patients not only eliminate their migraine or headaches, but also find that other related symptoms such as stiff necks, anger, anxiety, mood swings, irritability, restlessness, fatigue and allergies are improved or disappear. Not only is acupuncture very effective in treating headaches and pain in general, but it reduces the recurrences of migraines and helps bring about the health and wellbeing of the body. Acupuncture is not simply about pain reduction, it is about health and prevention. In the treatment of migraines there is also the exploration of what triggers cause an individual to have a migraine. Avoiding these triggers, and improving the diet and lifestyle in general are some of the additional ways in which migraines can be avoided.

What If Everything About Your Body Was Just an Interesting Point of View?


hat an interesting relationship most of us have with our bodies! They accompany us everywhere and make everything we do on earth possible, yet we ignore and denigrate them at every turn and pay no attention to the messages they try in to send to us. Then when they do manage to create a pain or symptom that gets our attention, we conclude something is horribly wrong with our body and the symptom must be gotten rid of right away. We go from completely ignoring our bodies to being almost possessed by the wrongness of what’s occurring in our body’s desperate attempts to get our attention. How smart is that? Not very! What could change if we were to apply one of the many tools of Access Consciousness, which is: Everything is just an Interesting Point o View. What if everything that occurred with our bodies were just an interesting point of view? Would that create a different reality with our bodies, perhaps a more rewarding relationship with our bodies? Certainly, it would make it easier to change the things we do not like about what’s occurring with our bodies. Our bodies have awareness, consciousness, and intelligence just like we the beings do—they just don’t have minds that constantly overcome their knowing. Just as with animals, we assume we are more conscious than our bodies because they don’t speak and think, and we do. Is that assumption really correct? Or are our bodies like the elephants during the tsunami in Thailand who pulled up the stakes in the ground that had held them in place for 30 years because their awareness of the upcoming tsunami that would otherwise drown them was so much greater than the humans who went to the beach to pick up the free fish” In order to change anything, however undesirable, about your body, you have to first come out of judgment of it to a point where you can be merely interesting point of view about what your body has created at your request. Having your Access Bars™ run, by the way, releases gazillions of limitations you the being have imposed on your body with every session you gift and receive. It’s because of the considerations you the being have and impose on your body that anything goes wrong with your body. It’s the letting go of those considerations that make the body miracles occur in just one session of Access Bars™session. And that’s saying nothing of the way that people who start doing Access

For Syd, finding this meaningful work meant turning his mess into a message.  The Fast Track Speaker’s School helped him get his business off the ground, not only in terms of finding his passion,  but by also providing marketing, sales and presentation skills support.  Today Syd’s clients include various police services such as the Ottawa Police, York Regional Police and Fredericton Regional Police.  He also serves the Canadian Police College, Customs and Excise Canada, and the Conference Board of Canada.  Syd is a tireless champion for the changes required in the emergency and enforcement industry when it comes to providing support for members suffering of PTSD.

hen Staff Sergeant Syd Gravel retired from the Ottawa Police force he never dreamed that he would become a national expert for the Mood Disorder Society of Canada.  His first inclination for a second career was to rely on his policing experience in workplace diversity.  And although he realized that he was a subject matter expert on workplace diversity – he had no passion for it – none to very little. To learn more about Syds work with PTSD, Without this passion, everything that he had built visit: his hopes and dreams on for becoming a professional speaker crumbled before him.  Syd credits the 90 day Fast Track Speaker’s School delivered by the Ottawa chapter of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers for helping him find his real passion.  This program catapulted Syd into a successful second career as a writer, speaker and trainer.  Syd devotes his time and energy on the development of resilience and RCRT resistance to trauma within the emergency Reflexology Therapist and enforcement environments.    His book,  56 Seconds, tells the gripping real life story of how his life took a dramatic turn in just 56 seconds. But Syd is one of just many Canadians retiring from one career and launching into a second. A 2012 TD Economics Observation Please welcome Laurie to the THS team at The Hair Salon.

Mastery and The New Now


e have heard for years of the accelerated pace of life and the times of change that are called the New Age, the Age of Aquarius, and now, the Ascension Times. No doubt they are here. For all the preparation and anticipation we have been involved in since the Harmonic Convergence of the late 1980’s; do these days not feel different? My world feels new and full of surprises. My day to day life is taking me by surprise constantly, and I am enjoying everything so far....and feeling a little bit ‘out of my depth’, ‘stretched’.  Some moments are vertiginous, as though I am free-falling blindly down an abyss. I have no idea what might be coming next. As I understand the material that I read and study about this period of our development, our personal and collective challenge is to focus on our Divine Essence while living in these bodies. It is to know ourselves as the spark of Creator and to stay grounded in our bodies and active here on a planet of change and metamorphosis. In many sources this part of our identity is called our I AM Presence. As in the biblical introduction, when God says to Moses, “I AM That I AM” ( Exodus 3:14), we are to know ourselves as the essence of this same I AM.  In this way, we can know every other thing in creation to be a part of that I AM as well, for No Thing has been created except by the one Creator. The planet, therefore, is also with us in this time of accelerated expansion and change, and we with Her. The practicality and the ‘how-to’ of maintaining awareness of our Divinity in the face of life lived at such a quickening pace is my life’s work. It is not taught in school, in most homes, nor even in our churches and houses of worship. Long ago they took to looking outside of the individual human being for Divinity. Collectively we have looked to our Intellect and Science, we have looked to material wealth and technology, and we have looked to gods, goddesses and their interceptors as sources of salvation. We have gotten out of the habit and the knowing that inside each of us lives and breathes the Creator of ALL. In this New Now, this time of Ascension, we are invited to re-claim ourselves, reclaim our spiritual development and come to know that the multidimensional beings that we are and have always been can and do express themselves beautifully and faithfully through these incarnated forms we inhabit and have sometimes disregarded as ‘mere bodies’. From

a spiritual perspective, these bodies are a great blessing and joy. They are an indispensible component of our growth, of this leading edge experience of expansion and they serve perfectly, as they were designed to. There are many paths to embodying your I AM Presence. We have lived and studied some of them as yoga, as the mystical forms of the great religions, and the mystery schools. Now is the time for Mastery. Never has there been as much openness, freedom and access; in our culture and between the multi dimensions of spirit which we inhabit.  It is time to learn and embody, to walk with on a daily basis, those great truths and the knowledge that is yet available, that is being given anew, that we are capable of and is required of us if we wish to fully enjoy our birthright Creators.  Why, we need these skills just to maintain our balance and get out of bed in the morning!   Celeste Susan Vermette teaches Breath Mastery and Reiki Mastery, and Self Mastery through Tantra practises

Have you ever had recurring numbers pop up time and time again, in your life? 333, 222, or 111.

When you understand where you are, in your cycle, and who you are according to numerology, you will have a wonderful new tool that will help you improve your life.  You have to start somewhere and RIGHT NOW is the perfect place to begin.  Where   he number 333 has haunted me for the last 30 years.  are you in June of  2014 and how can  you use  this At one point, it was actually starting to drive me a knowledge  for  your highest benefit? Check out my bit nuts.  I would and still do wake up for no apparent column “Laura’s Numerology News”.    All the best to reason at 3:33 a.m., time and time again.  I see 333 on you for the month of June! Laura Young is an Intuitive Numerologist and Core Belief license plates, parking spots, documents and just about anywhere else you would find random numbers.  Not Modification Coach. Located in Ottawa. For Personal Consultations please email: or call 613-725just once in awhile, but on a very regular basis. Metaphysical author, “Doreen Virtue”, explains the 7232. Skype and phone sessions are available number 333 in her book called “Angel numbers 101”, this way. The meaning of number 333:  “You are completely surrounded, protected, loved and guided by the benevolent ascended masters”. This made sense to me and brought me comfort and a confirmation that I was indeed on the right path in To all who ever tried to love another..... my life.  I mean if the ascended masters had my back, how could I go wrong....right?  According to the laws of numerology 333 is a master number and has the same kind of special meaning. Now when the number 333 pops up randomly, I just smile and say “THANK YOU”.  I had the misfortune,  last week  to  experience a flat tire while I was driving my Mom to one of her many doctor’s appointments.  Panic set in as I was running late and I had to get Mom back home and then be back in my office within the hour to see clients.  I determined that it would be quicker to call a cab, leave my car behind, get Mom home, and then have the driver take me directly to my house.  I knew that I could count on From ancient sacred teachings: my wonderful husband, Jeff, to help me fix and retrieve my car later.  The next morning we headed to the Empty your mind.

How to break up without breaking down


he wonderful thing about challenging life circumstances is they give us an opportunity to . . . ugh . . . GROW! But not only that, they are real-life experiments by which you can see whether your yoga (any spiritual practice) is fulfilling its intended purpose: to relieve suffering. Nothing challenges a positive state of mind like heart-wrenching heartbreak. I was thrilled to be given the chance to see myself through one of late. I’m proud to say that I went from fetal position, barely breathing, to rare reminiscing in just two short weeks. I attribute this to yoga and meditation, which have provided me with mental discipline. If you’re enduring anything of the like but don’t have those tools readily available, here’s a recap of how to break up without breaking down. 1. Go through your home with a fine-toothed comb, gathering all sentimental items (including trinkets or jewellery and especially his clothes) and dispose of immediately. Burn incense to clear the house of stagnant energy. 2. Invest in yourself. This is best done with book splurges or shopping sprees. Tally up enough toys and your attention will quickly shift to your mounting debt, leaving little concern for the insignificances of lost love. 3. Train your mind to focus. Now, this is the key. In mastering this discipline, you will not require any shopping sprees, rebound relationships, or self-help books to move on. Why? Because the sadness is ALL IN YOUR HEAD. This does not suggest it’s imagined, but that--to the contrary--your reality exists within the frenzied halls of your mind. Watch your thoughts and the second they veer towards nonsensical versions of “I’m unlovable” or “I’ll always be alone” or “He was so perfect,” immediately shift gears and focus on a more pleasant reality: “Damn, life is good.” “I’m healthy, happy, free to do what I love, and open to my next adventure. Bring it on!”

I’m here to tell you the absolute truth: Train your mind and you can enjoy a sense of deep inner peace and contentment, untouched by ANY outside circumstance or situation. In addition to proving the capacity of yoga to lift you out of the self-pitying dumps and carry you to higher levels, I also learned a fascinating lesson: The person you fall in love with is NOT the same person you dump (or who dumps you). This is an important revelation for several reasons. Nothing is more gutwrenchingly discerning than looking at someone you [think you] love and thinking, “Who ARE you?” And I don’t mean this in a “I can’t believe you wear holey socks” kind of way. I mean in that unnerving Shakespearean foreshadowing- the-climax-of-a-great-tragedy kind of way. Solution: I highly recommend any serious relationship undergo at least one mock breakup. Hold tight for a couple of weeks. Take space. See what new character traits develop. Perhaps most importantly, wish your beloved health, healing, and the same capacity to move on. For after all, we’re all just handling this thing we call life in the best way we know how. Eryn Kirkwood is a health and wellness coach who teaches yoga in the Barrhaven area.

Laura’s Numerology News for June 2014

Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth. Then you will add the number 4 to your number. NOTE – If your final number adds up to double digits, add the numbers together again, and again, if you have to, until you get a single number. If you still have trouble, email me at

1. It is all about lots of hard work and duty for you this month. Have you found that this year is a pain in the butt so far? You may find a very small window of opportunity to factor in a BIT of fun, but the key word is “bit”. The entire year’s events might create a knot in your forehead. This will pass. 2. This would be an excellent month to take a trip or spend quality time with the family. Get the heck out of the office, as everything come to a big halt, and will only add frustration to your life. Slow down, find Zen and hang on to it for the summer. 3. There will be a new spring in your step and you will feel a new life in your exhausted old bones. The world will seem brighter and there will be more opportunities for fun. Try to focus on creative and social pursuits around the home, or with your family. 4. Have you been placing issues connected to your body and mind on hold for far too long? I know that you are very, very busy, but you cannot ignore it any longer. If you do you will get a big slap in the head. Pay attention and regenerate yourself now! 5. Is your work life in a state of chaos or change? Watch your mouth and be very careful what you say as it might get you in trouble later. If there are changes needed at work, take the reins and move forward and sell yourself, now. This is a super business influence, so use it well. 6. Your attention will be focused on your loved ones, in June. This whole year will focus on tying up loose ends and projects but the month of June is about concluding any issues around the house or family. Dress light as your emotions could run hot and runny. 7. Have you been thinking about your goals, for the future, yet? What are you waiting for? You are in the first year of a nine year chunk of time, and this is a 7 month, so it is all about you and your goals, now. Do you want a new career, new home or a new love? Make a plan and build for the future now.


8. Career or money restrictions will stop you from either taking a vacation or enjoying it. There will be a surplus of work thrown in your face, this month. You are being stretched beyond yourself. The result will be a new and better you, but you will work hard for it. 9. Pack your bags as it is time for you take a well deserved holiday. If money is low, kick back have a few buddies in for a BBQ. You could experience some endings in June, but this is important, so that new doors can open as early as July. Do not start anything new, just tie up loose ends and get ready for a light switch to be thrown into the ON position very soon Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist and core belief modification coach.

What can Numerology do for you? Numerology is a study of numbers. There is evidence that numerology was in use thousands of years ago in China, Greece and Egypt even before the time of Pythagoras, who is generally accepted as the "father" of numerology. Why is numerology still in use and of interest to so many? It is because it works, that is why. • Are you currently at a major cross-road in your life? Should you make a decision or move forward now or wait? • Numerology can help you uncover hidden talents and turn them into a career. • An analysis of partners, children, friends or co-workers can help you deal with them more efficiently. • Numerology can help you heal from past issues and move on. • Help you understand how you can use the current year, month and day for its best influence. • Be more aware of your own areas of weakness and learn how to turn them into strengths. Stop repeating history once and for all. Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist/life coach living in Ottawa. She has written “Laura’s numerology News” in Tone Magazine for over 8 years.

The Profits of Spirit:

Ten Years of the Cosmic Pathways Healing Fair By Debra A. Grant

Karen has fashioned the Cosmic Pathways Healing Fair into a major annual event on the Ottawa calendar,” declares Dr. Ian Prattis, founder of Friends for Peace, a coalition of peace- and social justice-oriented groups who frequently benefit from Karen Osborne’s non-profit alternative healing affair. As executive director of this year’s (Sunday) June 22 event, she oversees volunteers and invitation-only practitioners who donate time and services to raise funds for selected non-profit charitable organizations, while raising awareness and providing affordable opportunities for the public to experience a wide variety of alternative modalities to heal body, mind and spirit. “It was an honour to be invited,” says energy healer/medium Lisa Virtue. “Karen is a wonderful soul who is very kind, generous and deeply cares about humanity and the planet.” This year marks the 10th anniversary of providing the $10 ‘mini-sessions’ offered for energy healings, naturopathy, homeopathy, shiatsu, allergy testing, reflexology, meridian tapping, crystals, shamanism, sacred geometry, sound healing and much more. Not to mention the usual “readings” and consultations which include angels, oracle cards, astrology, Tarot, totems and Feng Shui for this year’s edition. In her role as a “crystal and shamanic healer,” Karen is also one of the fair’s practitioners and participants in the free-withadmission speaking program. “Healing is a process of remembering who we are, releasing who we have been and reclaiming what we have lost,” states this modest healer, teacher and trainer. She explains her shamanic path as a “life of service” working with “energy, the Laws of Earth, the elements and the medicines of plants, animals and crystals to restore balance where it is needed.” Karen Osborne’s life of service periodically takes her to Peru, where she crossed paths with Alianza Arkana, a “grassroots alliance” involved with “creating a clean, just and sustainable future for the Amazon rainforest,” including its indigenous people and traditions. She learned that the alliance had created university scholarship programs to assist Shipibo youth seeking to serve their people via relevant professional training. Two candidates from this program still wait for adequate funding, thus they were selected by Karen to receive financial assistance via proceeds from the 2014 edition of the Cosmic Pathways Healing Fair. “She is a gem to be treasured,” says Dr. Prattis.

Other gems can be found via this year’s speaking program, including David Kane (“Monoatomic Gold”), Allan Green (“Dragons in Human Form”), Karen Jones & Karen Osborne (“Shamanic Light Language Journey”), and Lisa Virtue channeling angel/spirit information for the gathered audience. This year’s music program – “Raven and the Light Tree” – features a “spontaneous co-creation” via the voices and crystal bowls of Jeremy Sills and Naomi Athena. The one-hour event promises to “weave a deep tapestry of high vibration frequency, in which profound awareness, transformation and healing may occur.” Whatever your experience is at this fair … “All roads lead to God,” says Karen. “You cannot step in the wrong direction. You can only learn.” The Sunday, June 22, 2014 Cosmic Pathways Fair takes place between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Avenue (map). $10. mini-sessions for energy healings, readings and consultations. Free ‘talks’ and concert. Raw, organic, vegetarian food options. Extensive shopping experience includes angels, artwork, spiritual books and CDs, Tibetan bowls, natural body care and eco-products, oracle cards, crystals, shamanic supplies. $8 admission fee.

Building Community Through Drumming


ome and join Jody Marsolais of The RythymRoom for an Energizing and Fun filled 2 hour drumming workshop. The workshop will take place on June 14, 2014 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Woodroffe United Church in Ottawa. Entrance at the north door, banqueting room is on the 1st floor\up a small flight of stairs and turn left. Call or E-Mail Jody to Register - $30 before June 4th $35 after June 4th. No experience necessary, and drums are provided or bring your own. Here is a great opportunity to come out learn a new skill or sharpen your existing ones, have a great time, and meet new people. Jody is a certified drum Teacher through Vic Firth and has 24 years of teaching Experience. The session begins with everyone sitting in a circle so that they have eye contact with everyone else. The circle also represents Oneness! The session will include: - Basic hand techniques and how to make each one sound good. - Basic patterns for moving around the main areas of the drum. - Learn basic to intermediate World Rhythms and basic ensembles. - Team Building Elements in the form of exciting games with Brain Gym! - Experience a feeling of Oneness as the group plays together on a large Native Northern drum (Gathering Drum) - The afternoon comes to a close with our finally “Survivor Theme”. Our modern medicine has recently begun to understand the many benefits to drumming as our ancient ancestors knew. A few of these are: - Coping with stress and anxiety - Feelings of freedom, physically, mentally, and emotionally. - Better focus and concentration (Brain Gym). - Feelings of belonging and community - Positive outlet to combat aggression\bullying - Great joy and confidence. - Strengthens immune system - Lowers blood pressure - Building Community - Self Empowering

Basically all cultures had used drumming to create or form a bond together; it began with the family and extended out into the community. This allowed people to feel close to each other as well as creating a sense of belonging. It is basically a form of “breaking bread together” as in the scriptures, and is the very reason why business people discuss business matters over lunch. The drum is an ancient Bio Feedback Machine that has the ability to entrain specific brain wave patterns i.e. Alpha, Theta etc. Theta is where our whole being gets to recharge and repair from the many daily stresses imposed on us, as well as better memory, creativity and learning capabilities to name a few. Some people are not able to experience Alpha state and thus “Burn Out”! Alpha is known to reduce stress, anxiety, and even combat insomnia. Drumming is known as the ultimate Brain Gym exercise which helps us to better our focus and concentration. The act of drumming entails a bi lateral cross limb movement which develops many new pathways in the brain and thus improves the capacity of the left and right hemispheres of the brain to communicate most proficiently. Today most Fortune 500 companies are using drumming on a regular basis to help improve overall health and efficiency of their employees and instill a sense of belonging and appreciation. The list could go on and on. Do the research for self, and what best way to start then with a Drum Workshop! Look forward to seeing you there! Do the research yourself, and what best way to start then with a Drum Workshop!

Learning Disability or Dyslexia? Conversation with a Davis Facilitator, Carl Nigi


with language-based learning difficulties, dyslexia and AD/HD. Once you have awareness of the reason for a problem and “correct it”, the problem ceases to exist. This approach is unique as the program gives the dyslexic an understanding and solutions for dyslexia, lifelong success with learning and academics studies. For many people, what Davis is saying is bold and somewhat unbelievable. If we condensed it down, he’s saying. “This is what causes learning problems. It’s not “damage” or a “disability”. It’s based on a talent, which is a Gift, and this is how the problems can be overcome!

hat does the word Dyslexia mean? This is where the confusion begins for many people. The two parts of the word “Dyslexia” are Latin. “dys” meaning “difficulty” or “impaired”; think of it as “does not” or “cannot”. “lexia” meaning “written or spoken word”. So Dyslexia means someone who has “difficulty understanding the written or spoken word”. Dyslexia was the first name given, the ‘root’ name, for the symptoms of learning disabilities, and this is way the Davis program uses it. Contact Carl Nigi Tel: 613-558-7797 or Are ADD, ADHD or Learning Disabilities the same as Dyslexia? From our point of view they are. Simply speaking, someone who has AD/HD is doing the same thing a dyslexic is doing. The difference is that they are doing it more often. So the symptoms of their dyslexia are amplified and therefore look A Course in Miracles like different symptoms altogether. At Can dyslexia, ADD or ADHD be cured? Course Oasis Wanting to “cure” a person of dyslexia is like asking “can we cure someone of their smile or Text Study and Workbook Pracitce Groups, sense of humor”? Dyslexia, AD/HD are not the Meetings, Courses, Indiividual Support, result of a brain injury or neurological defect. Books and Other Resources Davis programs are not a “cure.” They are Mary Anne Buchowski understanding and success for a person, and that 613-726-0195 ! ! is far bigger thing. Why is Dyslexia a gift? To others, people with dyslexia and AD/HD seem so bright and skilled in many areas of their lives; at the same time stuck with the “simple things” like reading and paying attention, that this is baffling. What is their skill based on? Ron Davis explains this is in his book as a “perceptional talent.” Dyslexics are visual, multidimensional thinkers. They are intelligent, intuitive, highly creative and very inquisitive. Many dyslexics have gone on to have outstanding careers, once they have come to understand their creative abilities that came from their dyslexia. What is the Davis™ Method? The approach is not based on tutoring or drill, but actually resolves the root causes of problems

When to Use Energy Medicine?


nergy medicine is a broad term for therapeutic and diagnostic methods based on subtle energies. Examples include homeopathy, acupuncture, flower essences, healing prayer, Reiki, quantum touch, Biotron sensitivity testing, shamanism, Emotional Freedom Technique, crystals, Angel healing and many more. Research over the years has attempted to prove and disprove the efficacy of energy medicine with a mixture of results. My experience is that energy healing requires deep concentration and results vary according to the healer’s ability to focus at any given time. Under critical observation it is no wonder that experimental results are not consistent. I used to doubt this realm until experiencing it for myself through quite a few methods. There are many types of energy structures associated with the human body: acupuncture meridians and points, energy centres along the midline, layers of energies around us and energies associated with different functions, such as digestion, circulation and elimination. Spiritual traditions describe an energy rising along the spine as awareness awakens and an energetic core of bliss and wisdom called the soul. Depending on their training and equipment, practitioners will assess and treat different aspects of these energetic levels. The Vedas from India, our most ancient scriptures, teach that our soul accumulates extra layers according to positive and negative actions in our life. These layers, or samskaras, influence subsequent lives in a pattern of cause and effect. The goal according to this system is to peel off these layers in order to manifest our best selves. The energy healer in our clinic, Jennifer Presley RMT, has the ability to pick up these influences as energy blocks she can see, translate and connect to a person’s current life, integrating knowledge from several traditions. Often it is these blocks which lead to illness and resist healing. Jennifer has seen cases of disease dissipate when the related blocks shift. She receives help from healing Angels to remove negative entities from individuals, commonly followed by a feeling of increased lightness and relief of symptoms. On the other end of the scale, acupuncture and low dose complex homeopathy, used by many naturopathic doctors, have more of an effect on the physical body. Bach flower remedies work primarily on the emotions and Reiki works by funnelling healing through the practitioner to wherever it is needed. Cindy Fleming offers Reiki at our clinic. When visiting a psychic, information and advice is channelled from the larger energy field we all share,

When I refer patients to a psychic or energy healer, I remind them that they also have access to this information and will resonate with parts that are useful for them, so to trust their own intuition. The primary reason I refer to psychics is to resolve issues with people who have died, to obtain advice from a higher perspective or to glean information from past lives to help this one. From what I have seen, good energy healers are competent, honest, respectful, grounded and humble, dedicated to doing their best while acknowledging that the healing comes from beyond them. As we deepen our understanding of energy healing, more guiding principles will undoubtedly emerge to clarify this realm. In the meantime, we can exercise due diligence and common sense in choosing what is appropriate for our current healing needs as well as developing our own energetic awareness through practices such as yoga, meditation, prayer and chi gong.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: Are there any breathing techniques that are good for meditation?

SRI CHINMOY: Proper breathing is very important in meditation. When breathing, try to breathe in as slowly and quietly as possible, so that if somebody placed a tiny thread in front of your nose it would not move at all. And when you breathe out, try to breathe out even more slowly than when you breathed in. If possible, leave a short pause between the end of your first exhalation and the beginning of your second inhalation. If you can, hold your breath for a few seconds, but if it is difficult, do not do it. Never do anything that will harm your organs or respiratory system. Sometimes we find it hard to meditate because our subtle nerves are weak. One way to strengthen them is by inhaling and exhaling very, very quietly for a few minutes—say four or five minutes— during our meditation. By breathing in and out as quietly as possible, we will help the subtle nerves become strong. There are other ways to strengthen them but this is the easiest and most effective way. The following breathing technique can also be helpful for meditation. Each time you breathe in, try to feel that you are bringing peace into your body, infinite peace. The opposite of peace is restlessness. When you breathe out, try to feel that you are expelling the restlessness within you and also the restlessness that you see all around you. When you breathe this way, you will find restlessness leaving you. After practising this for a few times, please try to feel that you are breathing in power from the universe. And when you exhale, feel that all your fear is coming out of your body. After doing this a few times, try to feel that what you are breathing in is joy and what you are breathing

out is sorrow, suffering and melancholy. Another technique you can try is to feel that you are breathing in not air but cosmic energy. Feel that tremendous cosmic energy is entering into you with each breath and that you are going to use it to purify your body, vital, mind and heart. Feel that there is not a single place in your body that is not being occupied by the flow of cosmic energy. It is flowing like a river inside you, washing and purifying your whole being. Then, when you start to breathe out, feel that you are breathing out all the rubbish inside you. Feel that you are exhaling anything inside your system that you call undivine, anything that you do not want to claim as your own. It is most important that this breathing be done in a very conscious way, not in a mechanical way. Otherwise, it will not be effective. In the beginning you will have to use your imagination, but if you can breathe this way for five minutes every day, after a while you will see and feel that it is not imagination at all but reality. If you regularly practise this method of breathing, you will soon see its results. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Bunions and Reflexology By Kymberli Ker, RCRT Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist

What are Bunions? Bunions, something I see a lot of in Reflexology treatments and many come to me specifically because of them. Bunions are one of the most common foot concerns. If you have one, you know what they are and what they mean. If you don’t, I’ll explain. Keep reading….:) A bunion is a prominent bump on the inside of the foot around the big toe joint. For some, bunions are quite small, for others, large. This bump is actually a bone protruding towards the inside of the foot. With the continued movement of the big toe towards the smaller toes, it is common to find the big toe resting under or over the second toe. This causes a common foot condition called “overlapping toes” and it’s not comfortable. Some of the symptoms of bunions include inflammation, swelling, and soreness on the side surface of the big toe. The discomfort commonly causes a one to walk improperly. Another type of bunion is called a Tailor’s Bunion, also known as a Bunionette. I like to call them “baby bunions”. This type of bunion forms on the outside of the foot towards the joint at the little toe. It is a smaller bump that forms due to the little toe moving inwards, towards the big toe. Reasons Why One Gets Bunions? Bunions are a common problem experienced mostly by women; although men do get them as well. The deformity can develop from abnormal foot function, or arthritis, but is usually caused by wearing improper fitting shoes. Haven’t most of us women at some point worn the wrong kind of shoe only for the sake of looking fashionable??? I know I have. Tight, narrow dress shoes with a constrictive toe area can cause the foot to begin to take the shape of the shoe, leading to the formation of a bunion. Women who have bunions normally wear dress shoes that are too small for their feet. Their toes are squeezed together in their shoes causing the first metatarsal bone to protrude on the side of the foot.

pointy shoes and wear something comfortable, sensible and yes even fashionable…shoes have come a long way baby!! Have regular Reflexology treatments and baby those bunions of yours.

Treating and Preventing Bunions In the early stages of the formation of a bunion, soaking feet in warm water can provide temporary relief.   Reflexology can be very beneficial for the pain, swelling and inflammation of a bunion. The best way to alleviate the pain associated with bunions is to wear properly fitting shoes. So ditch the

Let’s breathe life back into your passions!

Reconnecting: Women’s Weekend Getaway In Wine Country


n the hectic lifestyle we live today, it is no wonder that women need to retreat and reconnect with their passions. Juggling home, family, career and social responsibilities, women seem to have less and less time to escape, relax, have fun and let someone else take care of them for a change. That is why Christine Beauregard-Zvalo, certified professional coach and founder of Heart & Soul Coaching and Retreats is hosting her annual Women’s Weekend Getaway in Wine Country - this year’s theme: Courage, Confidence and Celebration to be held on October 10, 11 & 12, 2014, at the elegant Inn at the Huff Estates & Winery nestled amidst a sprawling estate vineyard in the scenic wine country of Bloomfield, Prince Edward County (PEC), Ontario. Surrounded by the majestic waters of Lake Ontario, PEC is a place of tranquility, hospitality and FUN – lots of it! The intent of this Women’s Weekend Getaway is to celebrate the many roles women play in life. Says Christine: “Over the years in both my professional and personal lives, I have coached and talked with many women who have felt stuck or overwhelmed by life’s many challenges, unable to find a way forward. At this retreat, we want to broaden the awareness of women who are determined to find the courage to reconnect to their own life story beyond the many roles they have taken on in life (for example: mother, daughter, sister, friend, spouse, partner, etc). Together we encourage and strengthen each other’s confidence to take charge and play the lead role in our lives and explore the infinite possibilities of living out our passions.” The Getaway program is a unique one, offering workshops and fun life coaching tools to deepen our awareness of both the outlived and unlived parts of

Heather Garrod, Certified Aromatherapist and Owner, Planet Botanix


am a firm believer in holistic therapies because they encompass mind, body and spirit-the whole person. In our fast -paced and often stressful lives, we are often focused on the body’s aches and pains without delving into what other issues may be contributing to the ill health. Holistic practitioners also help the client take charge of their own health, which is very empowering. I am very proud of our group of practitioners, who are just as passionate about their healing modaltities as I am about mine. I welcome you to visit us at Planet Botanix, 301 Bank St in Centretown. By appointment: Aromatherapy Massage, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, Hypsnosis, Indian Head Massage, Reiki

Basically, I form what I call a “Healing Partnership” with the people who come for my services.

After years of illness, traditional western medicine was not serving her. By exploring the benefits of Reflexology & Yoga, Kymberli was able to bring a sense of balance to her body and mind. Knowing what these alternative healing therapies could provide, she embarked on a journey to help others find the same and became a Registered Reflexologist & Yoga teacher Erin Lauzon: Integrative Reiki with Crystals and Aromatherapy With ever-changing lives, our human energies are easily affected, for better or worse.

Trailing Sky Six Feathers Ian Prattis


y new book is now ready to dance in the daylight. I am so grateful to the many hearts and minds that helped me complete this lifework. It is available in Hardcover, Softcover, E Book and Signed Book. Note that all prices are in US dollars: GO TO: http://www. Click on ORDER BOOK for Signed Copy Option and for Hardcover, Softcover and E Book. This location has Overview, The Author, Chapter Summaries, Chapter Three, Testimonials, Blog and Order Book features. Trailing Sky Six Feathers illuminates issues that will affect our world for generations to come. This hero’s journey over four centuries of the author’s consciousness is like Indiana Jones meets the Buddha with a dash of Celestine Prophecy; shining light on the darkest elements of the human condition, including my own. Here is the publisher’s Overview: The author is a Zen teacher, Poet, Professor Emeritus, Founder of Friends for Peace, Spiritual Warrior for Planetary Care and Social Justice. In this book he navigates past and present life experiences from brutal raids on Indian settlements in 18th century Arizona, insane sea voyages off the Scottish Hebrides in the 20th century to surrender to The Muse in the 21st century. These screenplay epics weave together to create inspiration for a wide range of spiritual seekers, environmentalists, educators, Generation X and Y, feminists, students and academics alike. We are staring into the abyss: climate change, ecosystem and financial collapse, nuclear breakdown, terrorism and anarchy. Instead of being eaten up by the abyss “Awaken Spiritually” for that transforms everything. Our world has become an unpredictable beast. We fail to work with it intelligently. We must take back control of ourselves and this is a spiritual matter. An exciting Hero’s Journey, as we follow his journey to accept The Muse capable of transforming his karma. The story has the author stumbling through the first part of life, then standing strong in his own sovereignty in the latter part. In India, Arizona, France and Canada’s wilderness, he goes to extraordinary lengths to transform four centuries of karma. Readers will travel the pages with Ian as he learns to embrace The Muse - Trailing Sky Six Feathers - his South Western Native American wife and medicine woman in whose arms he died in 1777.

Over a period of thirty years, four extraordinary medicine people enhance his process of remembering, while Trailing Sky waits patiently from the distant past. Ian learns how to reconfigure his understanding of time, place, consciousness and even Carl Jung’s psychology, where he chose to listen to the feminine voice of Earth Wisdom rather than to the multitude of competing voices in his deep unconscious. Readers will be inspired as they watch Ian’s intention and strength of purpose transcend the patterns he had carried since childhood. Past life memories finally collide head on with the present, all thanks to the persistence of Trailing Sky Six Feathers, who refused to give up. Karma is reversed and the internal battles are over, as Ian begins to live his life as a Meditation for Gaia. The relentless shadowing of this engaging Muse brings understanding not only to Ian, but to anyone engaged in overcoming the darkness of their past. Trailing Sky Six Feathers caps the author’s longterm fascination with consciousness. As a Professor of Anthropology and Religion he has taught courses on Ecology, Symbols, Engaged Buddhism and Meditation Systems. He is a healer, mentor and educator, able to encourage people through example to find their true nature so that humanity and the world may be renewed. Ian’s story is offered as a gift to our planet, as his purpose in life is to share his wealth of experience on how to live in harmony not just with ourselves but with the place we call home… earth. In 2010, after an intense internal dialogue with his

Muse, Trailing Sky Six Feathers, Ian asked her if he should write her story. There was a long silence that stretched into infinity as he finally heard her affirmation. Ian stood up and reached for his backpack and took out a writing pad. There was a gold plated fountain pen in the pack, though he used it rarely. This story had to be

hand written. He inserted an ink cartridge into the pen and sat in a chair overlooking the sea and mountains on the west coast of British Columbia. Putting his pen to paper he started to write the first line of this book: “Put down your weapons, my husband,” she said quietly with steely insistence.

Young Yogi Hitting the Wall


honda Byrne in her book ‘Hero’ talks about how on every Hero’s journey they must encounter a space or place where things seems to stall, there is doubt, no lack of confusion or fear and things just seems to, well, stop. But really, they have only stalled until they summon the courage and faith that is truly strong enough to push through the last remnants of our inner resistance to success. What does this look like on an individual basis? More importantly, how do we respond when it seems like the door shuts suddenly in our face? When one day we are aflame with a bright, delightful idea and the ducks line up in place to make it all happen and then flump!, things turn around and come to a stand still the very next day. We are temped, very temped to give up, at the very worst to turn and hide our face in shame and embarrassment, or at best to laugh at our crazy idea that we actually could make it. I have read that countless successes, ideas and fantastic opportunities have been lost forever, or at least until another person comes up with a similar one, because ‘the wall’ caused someone to give up on themselves. There is another way of course. There always is. It can be much more difficult (or so it seems

at the time). How are we to believe in success when all around we see only evidence of failure? Perhaps those authors and world leaders can do it but how can the rest of us? We just breath. We just remember the truth (if unsure here we can always look or inquire inside to find it). And we find our place of quiet determination. Perhaps we need to stop talking about it, stop sharing about it, STOP exposing ourselves to doubters, at least just for the moment, until we can reconnect with that young green sprout inside of us, just starting to gain momentum, but not quite big enough to be considered a plant. What have we got to lose if we continue to believe, despite the odds, that we are worth it and that we deserve it? Nothing. And what have we got to loose by giving up and throwing in the towel? Everything. Everything we could be and should be and deserve to be along the road to oneness and happiness. Keep moving forward, even by taking the tiniest of steps, one small thought at a time. Since we are all connected at the source, we all share the same capacity.

Spring into Health!

With the IHC Intensive Healing Program Dear Clients, We are pleased to announce that IHC will be offering our - Spring into Health! Intensive Healing Program an exciting new pilot program. The Concept In order to cure any disease, it is vital that we identify the underlying cause rather than treating the symptoms or a label. Next, triggering factors need to be investigated & any obstacles to a cure be removed. What can cause disease? In addition to some inherited predispositions, the body can be “shocked” into a state of disease by the cumulative effects of a variety of impacts such as:  Physical traumas (infections, accidents, environmental chemicals, nutritional sensitivities etc.)  Emotional traumas (traumatic life events such as a death in the family, divorce etc.)  Other accumulated stressors (work stress, prolonged loss of sleep, chronic conflicts etc). Any chronic disease is a complex phenomenon. For healing to occur, the body needs to be ‘un-shocked’ &

‘guided back’ to a healthy state. Our experience has shown that once the root cause of disease & its triggering factors have been revealed, & a holistic, multifaceted healing approach has been applied, the body springs into its natural healing mode. In order to facilitate this transition from disease to health, we have developed the comprehensive Intensive Healing Program. A multi-disciplinary, focused treatment plan has a better chance to lead to great results than any single approach to curing disease. With the collaboration of health practitioners working together, amazing & lasting results can be achieved! Seize this rare opportunity to be part of IHC’s synergistic, integrated pilot program like no other found in our Nation’s Capital. Join us & take your first giant step down the road to recovery… The Program Over a 1 to 2 month period (2 successive days a week, 8 hours of treatment per day including breaks & a healthy lunch), participants will attend 8 full days of a synergistic intensive program undergoing selected types of treatments to stimulate healing on many levels. Each successive treatment will help push the body one step closer to healing, so the body is gently & persistently coached away from a disease state & to a healthy state.

Are You Ready to Play?



ne of the most interesting questions that I ask my coaching clients is the one which is the title for this article: Are you Ready to Play? I always get funny looks from them and invariably they will ask me what do I mean by this? Let’s first put this in context. My clients are typically 50 to 60 years of age and are getting ready to transition into the “after work” phase of their lives, that is, they are planning out their retirement. For the most part, they have had a fulfilling career and enjoyed many years of personal and career successes. And now, as they are preparing for this next phase of their life, they suddenly have a new challenge facing them; deciding what their next life purpose will be. Anthony Robbins said many years ago that we must find a cause that is so big that it will draw us to it. Just like a giant magnetic force, that cause drives us forward as it becomes our life’s purpose. That purpose will get us out of bed in the morning and the actions that we take each day will be to support our efforts to accomplish that stated goal. Therefore the reason for asking the question of Are you Ready to Play? is to see if my client has a cause in mind that will help them shape their life in retirement. If they do, then will they be willing to commit to it 100%, that is be ready to play, to give it their all? I want my clients to be so committed to that cause that they will have no problem answering this next question when they are on their death bed…Did My Life Matter? Leo Tolstoy has his main character ask that very question in the epic book titled The Death of Ivan Ilych. The answer to this question must be a resounding YES. One of the key steps to properly prepare for the transition into retirement is to define your purpose in life. Last month’s submission addressed this important issue and it is worth repeating that without a life purpose, one’s life will not be as fulfilling as it could be. Let me ask you another question! Why wait for

your retirement to do this? Why not go through the process of discovering your life’s purpose at an earlier age? Why not do this in your twenties or your thirties. Why not decide to play at that age instead of when you are retiring? I would argue that if you were to decide at a younger age to commit to playing hard at that life purpose, you would have a life that would be truly magical. Not only would you be fulfilled on a personal and a professional level, but the impact from your actions would truly make a meaningful difference in this world. The question for you today is to ask yourself if you are ready to make the commitment to go out and play! If you are approaching retirement, please know that there is truly more of you to give and that you still have lots of time to make your mark all over again. But you must decide what that next calling will be. Be open to the many possibilities that exist and do not reject anything out of hand. Take some time to discover new areas of your personality. Reflect back to when you were much younger and remember the dreams that you had back then; dreams that never got fulfilled because other life commitments needed your full attention. Dare to dream of the infinite possibilities that lie in front of you and then decide that yes, I’m ready to go out and play.
