We have a truly impressive array of choices, solutions and gourmet treats that make the word vegan denote fun, fashionable and delectable. And now you can find it all under one roof. In recent years Veg Fest has been held at the RA Centre where there is space for all the activities offered including cooking demonstrations, informative presentations, and a marketplace with over 85 vendors.

The vendors at Veg Fest will be sampling, selling and showing ONLY vegan products, and if you haven’t attended before, you will be amazed at the wide number of options! OLIVIA CHOCOLATIERS, a Gatineaubased family-owned company has a few new exciting offerings this year. Be sure to stop in to ask about their 100% Raw Chocolate and also a new release this spring: vegan white chocolate!!! This unprecedented combination of artisanal expertise and vegan fair-trade delicacy is taking chocolate to the extreme of perfection. Don’t miss this booth!

not to forget the unique offerings of Canadian designers and crafters as well. At the Adorit booth you will find hemp, bamboo and organic cotton clothing; lots of diversity. Don’t forget to ask about the 100% vegan clothing line as well as her line of vegan leather bags and tons of vegan accessories! FAUXMAGERIE ZENGARRY has been a Veg Fest favourite since their inception.

Their website has a plethora of delectable recipes that will impress your guests, entreat your loved ones or gratify your own most discerning palate. Owner Lynda Turner will also be doing a cooking demo Sunday afternoon showing us how to make two different Fauxmage FONDUES!!!! How cool is THAT? One of the many reasons to adopt a plant based lifestyle is sustainability. That means sustainable food sources. A very important key to sustainability is supporting the local food economy because the less a food travels the smaller the carbon footprint is. But also, the nutritional content increases as your food is fresher! Veg Fest will be showcasing a number of local food producers and growers, such as King’s Creek Garlic Farm, Kricklewood Farm, and other businesses that carry products that are produced- locally. This year, attendees can also get free tree seedlings to support Ecology Ottawa’s Tree Ottawa program. Ottawa Veg Fest will also include a number of animal advocacy groups, animal rescues and sanctuaries so that you can see what is being done in the promotion of compassion. There will be cruelty-free cosmetics and body care products to discover and sample and environmental champions such as Canadian Organic Growers and Tree Ottawa. Don’t worry about getting breakfast or lunch before heading to Veg Fest, as an assortment of local restaurants will be there including our Gold Sponsor, The Table Vegetarian Restaurant and Silver Sponsor, Asian Stars, among others. There will be lots of food, snacks, drinks, and take home pantry items like freezer soups, kombucha, herbal teas, preserves,  cooking oils and sauces, salad dressings, take home meals and sweet desserts. Easily accessible by bicycle or transit, the RA Centre also offers lots of FREE parking. Admission is by cash donation (donate what you can). Money collected will support the Ottawa Food Bank’s “Community Harvest” initiative and the National Capital Vegetarian Association.

The Temple of Eleusis was later one of the many spiritual sites destroyed by the Christian Emperor Theodosius. The Eleusinian pilgrims were led in sacred procession along the Sacred Way by a priestess who represented Demeter, the goddess of fertility. Along the route, which was symbolic of the descent into the underworld or the dark side of humanity, the pilgrims were ritually harassed and insulted by masked men.

Biochemical Aging - Utilizing Amino Acids to Help Balance the Immune System

by Carolyn Mercer ging is not really about how long someone has been alive, but more about the decline in physical ability and health that tends to occur once a person reaches later life. Aging involves a variety of factors— including our genes, our environment, and infections with harmful viruses and bacteria. The aging process, called “senescence,” occurs at a cellular level. Healthy cell function helps to optimize immune function. The immune system when activated as we age or in cases of chronic illness utilizes amino acids to regulate and repair every organ in the body. Amino acids are the basic building blocks for protein essential to life. Due to modern methods of growing and processing food it is difficult to access sufficient amino acids, vitamins and minerals though diet alone. Caloric needs will decrease as we age but requirements for amino acids and micronutrients actually increase.

The Science of Healthy Aging Your immune system uses amino acids to regulate and repair your organs, but you can't get these vital elements through diet alone. Now there’s a way to measure your levels, and customize your supplements. Learn more at www.aminomics.com 302-80 Aberdeen Street Ottawa, Ontario (613) 239-0220

Overall protein stores decrease with age related muscle loss. More specifically, taurine is an amino acid that tends to become deficient in cases of liver, kidney or heart disease as we age. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant in the body made up of 3 amino acids (glycine, glutamine and cysteine) which aids in allowing us to detoxify excess toxins which will also decrease with aging. As we age, our body demands a strong foundation for both metabolic and immune systems to support basic life processes. Personalized assessments can include having your own individualized amino acid report and customizing supplements with optimal levels of amino acids, vitamins and minerals based on your unique health situation. By optimizing the nutrient balance in the body we can help to optimize wellness as we age. Carolyn Mercer is a Naturopathic Doctor that works at Immune System Management in Ottawa. Carolyn works extensively studying “Aminomics” profiles. “Aminomics” is the science of how the body utilizes amino acids (protein) to help optimize the immune system. Carolyn has worked with various different types of immune conditions ranging from heart disease to severely immune suppressed individuals with diagnoses such as cancer.

7 Tips to Mindfully Overcome Bad Habits


ad habits have a profound effect on your life. But habits can be challenging to change since they aren’t based on mindful choice, so it’s difficult to use logic to change your behavior. They require a multi-faceted approach. If you can’t shake your bad habits, try these tips to get you on the road to freedom: 1. Give it a month. In 30 days you can eliminate a bad habit and create a new, positive habit. Do your very best for a month. If you backslide after a month, it’s likely that your strategy is lacking. 2. Replace your bad habit. It’s almost impossible to just drop it and not replace what you’ve lost. So think about what your bad habit gives you and find a replacement that provides the same benefit. Replace the benefit or it will be a constant battle. 3. Deal with one challenge at a time. For example, avoid trying to overhaul your diet, exercise, spending, and smoking habits all at once. Pick one; give it a month. Then add another one once you’re used to not having the first bad habit. 4. Remove your triggers. For example, get the junk food out of the house. If you smoke, stay away from the places you always smoke. Avoid the places that tempt you to spend a lot of money. Habits don’t have a lot of thought behind them – they’re almost like reflexes. Don’t put yourself in harm’s way.

6. Tell your friends. Your friends can help you reach your goal. They’ll say something if they see you eating a hot fudge sundae or smoking on your lunch breaks. Get all the help you can. 7. Be consistent. If you’re going to start exercising regularly, try to do it each day at the same time. This is much easier than trying to exercise 3 times a week. Try to do your replacement habit daily. Bad habits can really hamper your progress. Use the tips above and give yourself a great opportunity to eliminate your bad habits and replace them with useful habits. There’s no better feeling than knowing you have control over your life.

Hair Analysis How the Sodium/Potassium Ratio Affects Your Ability to be Loving and Sexual by Dr Paul Eck


hy do so many individuals want to enjoy sex, but can’t because they feel fearful and inhibited? Why do so many individuals find it impossible to “let go” and express their true emotions towards a mate? The answer to these questions has to do with mineral imbalances in the body. The quickest way to tell on a mineral chart if a person is fearful and inhibited is to look at his sodium to potassium ratio (Na/K). If a person has a sodium to potassium ratio of less than 2, it can prevent him or her from enjoying a passionate sexual experience. Now you ask, “What does this particular mineral ratio have to do with emotional and sexual enjoyment?” Here is the answer: There are two hormones in the body which control a person’s state of fear. These hormones are noradrenalin and adrenalin and they are both produced by the adrenal glands. An excess of noradrenalin puts a person on the offensive. It makes him excessively aggressive. You could see how this could prevent a person from expressing warmth and tenderness. On the other hand, excessive adrenalin makes one excessively defensive. This would make a person inhibited and afraid to be themselves. How could anyone in this state of mind let and spontaneously enjoy a sexual experience? Normally, there should be a perfect balance between these two hormones. This balance is represented by the sodium to potassium ration. Sodium represents noradrenalin (aggressiveness). potassium represents adrenalin (defensiveness-fear). When these two minerals, sodium and potassium, are in a balanced ratio of 2.5 to 1, an individual will neither be abnormally aggressive or defensive. However, whenever these two minerals become unbalanced, either the aggressiveness or the fearfulness will dominate and sexual enjoyment will suffer. The persons who are the most sexually and emotionally inhibited will have a low level of sodium


(aggressiveness) and a proportionately higher level of potassium (fear). This is why people with a sodium to potassium ratio of less than 2.00 live in a chronic state of fear. They are always on the defensive. People with low sodium to potassium ratio are so fearful all the time that they can never fully express their emotions. They are always inhibited. They can never let their feelings “flow”. These people are generally outwardly lacking in passion while inwardly they may have warm and loving thoughts and feelings. When a person is fearful and inhibited and unable to express his full emotions, don’t look down on him and condemn him. If you had the same mineral ratios that he did, you would be the same way. I know what I am talking about. I spent many years of my life living in a state of perpetual fear. Anyone with a high or low level of copper, iron, zinc, or manganese will have the same problems we just mentioned. Also, many people will not show a poor sodium to potassium ration until their second or third hair test. Their true fearful condition may be “masked”.

The Persisting Pounding Heart – a case study by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. May this case study inspire you to honour the Divinity of your heart, and heal your limiting persisting patterns.


iedre was experiencing considerable anxiety and aggravation with various physical symptoms. She also felt anger, frustration, and fear that she couldn’t handle it all. While she was being treated with chiropractic and naturopathic support, her heart was exceptionally worrisome and distracting – it was always pounding so intensely that it would even keep her up at night. My higher guidance brought our focus to dialoguing with her body and the emotions and beliefs related to her anxiety. After just one session she felt great relief, felt calmer in body and mind, and slept peacefully through several nights. She felt that key to all this was accepting the higher purpose that we were able to clarify for her: this was all coming to consciousness now to free her into being more present to herself as she fulfilled the work of her soul mission. However, her heart continued to often beat fast and hard and her breathing was still short and shallow. Our next session further revealed that her heart was responding to her fear that she would lose control with everything that needed to be done. Her anxious self was trying to keep her safe, self-protective and cautious, concerned that if she was present to herself in her purpose she would be susceptible to negative interference. So its favourite time to show up was when she sat down to work, causing her to be unfocused and agitated.

was having a discussion with a client a few weeks ago about life goals, his present situation and various ways to get some forward momentum back into his life. For a variety of reasons, life got in the way and he found himself in a place that he clearly did not want to be in. He was struggling with several issues that had wandered back into his life, issues that he had sorted out a number of years ago. He was frustrated, upset at himself for letting all of this happen and anxious to get back into a happier place. I can certainly relate to this situation. As we continued to talk, it became clear to me that he was immobilized and needed some clear guidance. This is what I recommended that he do effective immediately. First, he needed to start feeding his body properly by making better food choices. Second, he needed to clean up his vision board that had become a reflection of his life, that is, cluttered and not functional. Thirdly, he needed to get back into a proper 7-8 hour sleep pattern. And finally, I instructed him to start doing exercise in the form of 3-5 km walks three or four times a week. By combining these simple elements together, I knew that things would start to change in his life. I knew this because these are the very same things that I have done over the years to get myself back on track when I found myself in a fog. By having a clear vision of your life goals, by giving your body a chance to get rest, proper nutrition and exercise, you are creating the conditions for a successful outcome. Get focused and the fog will start to lift as your actions carry that new momentum forward. Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute.

Experiencing pleasure floods our systems with endorphins and oxytocin. It alters our blood chemistry, enhances our brain power, and makes us aware of things we were not aware of before. Pleasure heals. Choosing pleasure can remap the brain, restoring a sense of wellness, aliveness and safety in the body, and counteracting the chronic stress epidemic in our culture today. If we reclaim our pleasure, we can transform our lives. We can learn to trust our own inner voice. When we know what we want, we can yes to it. When we feel worthy, we can say no to what we don’t want. When we can trust our wanting, we can be open to new experiences and expand relationships with our lovers, our children, our coworkers, our mothers. Allowing more pleasure into our lives invites us to flourish- we can live a more fun, more sensual and more fulfilling life, engaging our creative, generative energy in the service of our life’s purpose. Starting right now, starting right where you are, you can live a more joyous embodied life by simply paying attention and attuning to pleasure. Practice feeling into your body, and noticing what feels good. Welcome and appreciate your desires, recognizing them as the potent, life-giving force that they are. Reclaim your pleasure and discover your most authentic, wise and fully alive self.

Sri Chinmoy Answers

Question: How can our modern technological society be taught to respect our planet Earth, and will man survive the impending ecological disasters? SRI CHINMOY: Mankind will survive everything precisely because God will not allow His perfection manifestation on earth to be a failure. But it is very difficult to impress upon others the necessity of respecting and preserving our Mother-Earth. If we try to play the role of enforcers, we will not be successful. Nobody wants to learn anything by outer force. Everybody has to be taught through inner illumination founded upon prayer and meditation and outer example. The development of technology is not bad in itself. But we have to see whether technology is utilised for the divine satisfaction of mankind or for man’s mutual selfdestruction. Our planet Earth, which God has chosen for His complete manifestation, will be inundated with light and delight when we all live in our purity-heartgarden and not in our impurity-mind-jungle. In this sense, each seeker has a special role to play in the protection of our small planet. It is the illumination of the individual mind and spirit that will precede the awakening of a new collective awareness. The change in individual attitudes will be the precursor of a change in institutional policies, and the result will be a greater respect and love for our planet Earth. Precisely because He is all Love and all Goodness, God will never allow mankind to destroy this beautiful world of His. He tells us to claim His world as our own, and to serve Him in this world by increasing the purity and divinity of our lives. We can all see that the world has made tremendous progress. God has successfully inspired the human mind and heart to aspire towards a more harmonious world. He is infusing the earth-consciousness with greater oneness-light to go beyond national boundaries and other divisions. We must remember that the Creator is always more powerful than His creation. The Creator can easily influence or change the negative and destructive forces in the world. So we must have faith in our Creator and trust that He will, without fail, do the needful for His creation. Visit www.srichinmoy.org for further writings by Sri Chinmoy

Liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac


he Liver is the organ that is responsible for ensuring that energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), flows smoothly throughout the body – in all organs and in all directions. The function of the Liver of regulating Qi, is extremely important to both our physical and emotional health. So, what can cause a disruption in the free flow of Liver energy? Stress, anger, resentment and repressed frustrations in life will do it every time. These emotions, when experienced for a prolonged period of time, will cause the Liver Qi to stagnate. Diet and lifestyle, in particular the excessive consumption of spicy or greasy foods and the use of alcohol and nicotine, will contribute to or aggravate a Liver imbalance by generating heat in the body. When the Liver energy is stuck, physically, we experience a feeling of distension in the chest, which the body attempts to relieve by sighing. Often there is discomfort just below the ribcage along the path of the Liver meridian. Because of the close relationship of the Liver and Gallbladder, neck and shoulder tension are common along the path of the Gallbladder meridian. Because a branch of the Liver meridian ascends to the top of the head, vertex headaches are common.

Emotionally, we feel irritable and depressed or have pronounced mood swings when the Liver Qi is stuck. Menstrual irregularities almost always have a Liver imbalance element due to the Liver's function of storing Blood. Irregular periods, painful periods, breast tenderness and PMS are common symptoms. Acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea and abdominal distention may be due to a Liver imbalance affecting the Stomach or Spleen. Tendon problems may be due to the Liver failing to properly nourish them. Many of my patients with carpal tunnel and plantar fasciitis have other Liver issues. Stiff neck and muscle cramps may be related to the Liver. Dry eyes, floaters, poor night vision or other eye issues may be related to the function of the Liver in Chinese medicine.

Patience & Commitment to Heal

By Patty Chevalier Samm veryone wants to change something in their life; relationships, income, health, happiness. It can feel so daunting at first but once you truly commit to that change and push forward, it starts to feel so good. To truly find change, you need to connect deeply to your soul releasing past traumas - big and small - fears and emotions that are holding you in patterns you don’t need anymore. The beliefs connected to these patterns once protected you or served you in some way but as time moves on, these beliefs become outdated and no longer serve you. Finding the deep core reasons for them can take time and hard work but it does not have to be as hard as you may think. The hardest part is the commitment to allow yourself to look deep inside and let go of the past and the beliefs that no longer serve you.

Someone may be sick and consciously wants to get well but, for the first time in years, it has brought their family together. Their sickness is actually serving them, in a way, to keep them connected and closer to their family so their subconscious mind won’t allow them to fully heal. These subconscious beliefs need to be transformed into ones that allow the person to be healthy while having the family connection that they so desire. Another person may feel like they truly do not deserve a healthy happy relationship or may not even know what that means because they never experienced a healthy relationship even as a child. Thus, their subconscious keeps them in a pattern that they know of betrayal, abuse or abandonment. Releasing the cellular memory and emotions of their past experiences can change their relationships into ones filled with unconditional love, trust and commitment and give them the confidence that this is what they truly deserve. When you are ready to transform a part of your life, commit to connect with your soul so you can find answers of what you need to release and change and how to do so. Have patience with yourself but work at it. You will thank yourself in the end. Patty Chevalier Samm is a Medical Intuitive, ThetaHealing Instructor & Spiritual Advisor.

After having had a chronic, digestive, autoimmune illness for nearly 20 years, I completely healed my “incurable” disease and am now living with incredible health, vitality and joy. I have found what works and what doesn’t; what the body and mind need to heal and what prevents that healing. This program is like a fire starter that, with your commitment, can completely change the way your body functions. In this program, we draw upon the wisdom of Evolutionary (ancestral) Diet, movement and socialization in order to get your body back to a state of vibrant health and wholeness.

Our work together incorporates nutritional and energetic strategies for the whole body-mind. Powerful energetic techniques can help to heal old traumas and wounds that are still hindering your physical and emotional freedom. Testimonial from Sandra S. ~ Ottawa, ON “Ann is exceptionally tuned in, and connects immediately at a soul-to-soul level. Her soul light is so bright that I experienced a delightful, joyful feeling of ‘coming home’ when I first spoke with her on the phone. Ann is one of those rare beings that emanates a clear and pure, joyful and life-affirming energy. A gifted healer, body intuitive, and seer, Ann somehow perfectly balances her encyclopedic knowledge of the body and its energy systems, food, nutrition, and supplements (and so much more!), with her deep ageless wisdom and intuitive knowing. The result is a very effective structure and process for guiding the healing journey. I signed up for Ann’s ‘Three Month Program to Radically Shift The Way Your Body-Mind Functions’. Every single session was memorable as Ann adeptly, skillfully, and heart-fully guided me on my journey back to wholeness and health once again. Thanks to Ann, I am healthy once again.” For more information about The Evolutionary Method Mastery Program, please contact Ann Jarvis at (613) 218-6899 or go to: http://www.thenourishedsoul.ca for more info

Childhood Bedrooms

Love Story from Chapter Twelve: Igor and Catriona of New Planet, New World. gor asked her a surprising question, “When you were a child what was your bedroom like?” Catriona smiled as fond recollections arose in her mind. “I had the most marvelous bedroom. It was more of a music room than a bedroom, full of musical instruments.” She giggled and clapped her hands, “I had all these stuffed animals and would place them next to instruments and move them around. My father was such a goof. He would knock on the door and ask if he was to be Elephant, Tinker Bell or Bear and then come in and play their instruments.” Igor was rolling over with laughter. “My bedroom had a large bay window and my father would sit there with whatever stuffed animal I assigned to him. Often my mother would come in and conduct the entire ensemble.” Catriona’s face was lit up with the memories and she turned to him, “What about you Igor?” Igor pondered whether to reveal too much, then decided to do so. “My bedroom as a child was my sanctuary. My parents were often under police scrutiny for their beliefs. To compensate they created a very safe haven for me.” He slowly gathered himself, “I see the corner where books, paintings and wooden stools are piled up in disarray. My bed had two levels, one for me to sleep upon and the other for my stuffed animals to talk to before sleeping. It was a comfortable bed with large pillows and green checkered blankets. I had a telescope next to the window and I would fly in my mind to galaxies with my favorite animals.” Then he



paused, “Perhaps it was too much of a sanctuary, as I did not like to leave this house. I had to when my parents entered the Space Agency in Moscow. I did not want to leave my safe bedroom behind but my father was very smart. He cleared it out and painted it in colors I hated. I begged him and my mother to let me see it one last time.” There was a tremor of emotion in Igor’s voice and Catriona stayed very still. “On that last visit, mother pointed to the empty window where my telescope once focused on the sky. I felt the loss, stripped down in an empty space once resonant with discovery. I felt my mother’s gentle hands on my shoulder and still remember her saying, “There is nothing to hold you back, Igor. Your dream is still inside. Now step into freedom.” She smiled as I looked for the telescope. Nothing was there. My treasures were boxed and sent on to Moscow. This was their way to move me on from fear rather than cling to childhood safety. My mother held my hand and stared at where the telescope was not.” Catriona reached over and gently held Igor’s hand, “And here you now are Igor.” He raised her hand to his lips and gently kissed her fingers.

BOWEN THERAPI Bowen Therapy for Athletes

Runners, marathoners, iron wo/men, golfers, martial arts practitioners, soccer, volleyball and tennis players, and other athletes who aim to improve performance or get back in their game after incurring injuries, strains, and muscle soreness should consider Bowen Therapy, also known as Bowenwork. It’s a safe, gentle, natural, yet powerful hands-on therapy that stimulates the body to heal. Bowenwork directly affects the autonomic nervous system, which influences every aspect of the body, including the muscles, fascia, ligaments, respiration, even emotions—all elements of athletic performance. Lyn McCuaig stumbled upon Bowen Therapy 15 years ago when she was a martial arts student looking for whatever was out there that could resolve her plantar fasciitis and get her back in the dojo. Having tried sports medicine and various alternative therapies, she received Bowen Therapy. After only two sessions she was amazed that she was pain-free and able to return to martial arts. She went on to win a medal at a tournament. Years later, while working toward a black belt, Bowen Therapy helped Lyn resolve a rotator cuff injury and shin splints. Impressed by how quickly Bowen Therapy had resolved her sports injuries time and again, Lyn decided to study this modality and help others to experience the same benefits. She is now a Certified Bowenwork Practitioner practicing in Kanata.

An innovative therapy for chronic and acute pain management and general health maintenance. In 14 days of training over 6-9 months you can learn to help family and friends or become a certified Bowenwork® practitioner. Training program begins November 2017 For information and registration contact Janet Riley at 613 848-2083 or janet@bowentrainingacademy.com www.bowentrainingacademy.com www.facebook.com/bowentrainingacademy www.twitter.com/janet_BTA

ISTS OF OTTAWA Testimonials Athletes who benefitted from Bowenwork had this to say. I suffered a painful running injury while I was training for a marathon. Almost immediately following the first Bowenwork session, I experienced a significant reduction in pain. The treatments helped me recover faster and get back to running pain-free much sooner than I anticipated. I could not believe that a treatment that feels so gentle could have such a powerful effect. There were also many side benefits of the treatments like an easier time during my period as well as anxiety relief, which I did not expect. The treatment itself is also incredibly relaxing and I always sleep very well after my Bowen session. SBG, 2016

Get Well with Bowen

Greatest discovery in health care

I was in constant pain with my calves and feet caused from the many miles I put on during my marathon training. Since having Bowen therapy I am now pain free and am now continuing my training for my next marathon. CG, 2016

Bowen Betters You When I learned about Bowen, I was intrigued by the potential benefits. As a runner and athlete of various sports I am constantly fighting different ailments. Prior to back-to-back races in Chicago in July I had 3 treatments. I had a personal best in the 1st race and felt unbelievable. No calf or hamstring cramping, my breathing was relaxed and recovery was much quicker than usual. I truly believe I would not have run the PB without my treatments. Another Bowen bonus is how well you sleep after a treatment. KS, 2016 Spring is finally here! Seasoned athletes as well as beginners will be out there training for their personal bests. Unfortunately with the glory sometimes comes injury and pain. Seek timely, affordable help to address your sport injuries, and avoid the risk of sitting on the sidelines for the remainder of the season. Here’s to the thrill of your victories! SCIATICA I first heard about Bowenwork from a friend when plagued with sciatica. After several visits to a chiropractor with no progress, I called a Bowenwork practitioner. After four gentle, relaxing treatments not only my sciatica but other minor conditions have been relieved thanks to Bowenwork. It works.

P is for Paraben

So what’s a body to do? Well, become a savvy consumer the same way you would shop for food. Read the labels and look for the ingredients you can’t understand. Then look them up! Purchase DIY ingredients and have some fun creating your own personalized bodycare (pssst…we can help!). Remember that the number of different products you use can multiply the effect of the ingredients, so if you choose to use your commercial shampoo, maybe switch to a natural oil to moisturize instead of that offthe-shelf stuff you’re used to. More details can be found at the following websites: http://davidsuzuki.org https://www.ewg.org


ast month, I talked about artificial scents and why they may be harmful. I’d like to explore more of the reasons why a healthy home means a healthy you. Have you heard of 1,4-dioxane? It could be in your shampoo and lotion right now. It is a suspected carcinogen. And it doesn’t break down easily, meaning it could remain in your environment long after initial use (It is on Health Canada’s prohibited list, but there is some debate, as the levels of 1,4 dioxane were too low in a product to be considered toxic).    Did you know that parabens are used as preservatives and as fragrance.  They are estrogen mimicers, and are suspected to have a relationship with breast cancer. They can be found in everything  from bodycare to the food you eat. There are a growing number of chemicals which have been shown to be damaging to us-and to the environment (remember the micro beads I talked about a while ago? A danger to the aquatic life that thinks they are food. Fortunately, they should be banned completely by 2018).

Welcome to the Newest Scalar Energy Technology in Quantum Sound Therapy! It can reach the most minuet parts of your brain to rewire the old programs and find your own unique power. Sound Therapy accelerates self love, new ideas, greater focus and clarity, peace, harmony and self discovery – all without the work and fear we struggle through when working with our conscious mind. How can Sound Therapy help you? Everyone and everything has a unique, measurable vibration. A voice code contains a blend of frequencies unique to you which may hold the key to progressive evolution! It has the power to free you from the bondage of your subconscious negative thoughts and self-sabotage. Your personal sound therapy track acts as a personal “tuning fork”. An individual’s voice pattern is their energy signature that is a better representation than their DNA. A voice sample is taken, analyzed and a graph representing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual components is generated. A unique set of frequencies specifically designed to balance you is then generated. Listening to your personal frequencies  harmonizes  your energy and releases subconscious blocks that hold you back from living a life of love, joy and peace.

Managing Times of Intense Energy? Sherry Harris. MSW, RSW,OM, psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher


would be very surprised if anyone out there is not aware of the intense energies being beamed upon us at this time to accelerate our level of consciousness. Even if you are one who does not talk or think about energy you can’t help but notice your life is different than it used to be. Nothing seems to be normal anymore. As a counsellor and energy facilitator I hear the same things over and over now from my clients and friends as well. Depression, anxiety, poor sleep, exhaustion, not feeling grounded, indigestion, poor memory, feeling lost, unfocused--- these are all common complaints. What I recommend to people is three fold. One, is energy work to balance body, mind and spirit while we go through this ascension process. For this I recommend clients receive sessions on my amazing TrinFinity8 energy balancing, restoration and rejuvenation system. In person or receiving remotely--the results speak for themselves. Please check out Kathy Forti and the TrinFinity8 on you tube. Her book Fractals of God is a fantastic read and outlines how she had a near death experience and came to create this advanced health system. I would love to give you a free demo on the system and let you experience it for yourself. I can also lend you her book to read if would like. Secondly, do your work to clear your emotional system of all the old fears, angers, resentments, guilt and shame. I know of no better way to do this than with the Inner Child Work created back in the late 80’s by John Bradshaw. I have used this personally for over 25 years after I first trained in it and have helped so many to free themselves of the childhood wounding we all experienced even if we had the best parents in the world. We came into our lives free, alive, spontaneous --filled with awe, love, and remembrance of who are truly arespirit embodied. It didn’t take long in body to forget all of this and become embroiled in using whatever means we could to get our needs met and to feel loved and valuable. I suggest 4 or 5 sessions with me to learn how to do this work as an ongoing method of healing your emotional body. Thirdly, take more time for yourself. Walk in nature, meditate, or just slow down and be quiet. More being and less doing. The results are almost instantaneous. You can’t heal your inner turmoil by reading about it-- you need to do it. Twice a day for a minimum of 15 minutes simply sit quietly and breathe. As the thoughts come in, just observe them and let them pass through. You’ll be so glad you did. Just breathe in and relax on the out breathe. Call me or email if I can be of help. I would love to demo the TrinFinity8 to you and get you started on your journey with your inner child.

Can Gastric Band Hypnosis Cure Obesity?


ver 21.4% of Canadians are considered to be overweight or obese. Obesity is a risk factor for diabetics, people with heart disease and other serious medical conditions and costs the OHIP billions every year. Studies show that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men are on of diet, trying to lose weight, or watching what they eat. 25% of people who have attempted to lose weight have done so using at least 20 different diets, and 60% of all people on diets have regained the pounds they once lost. The number 1 reason cited by and About.com/Insight Express survey of 500 adults explained dieters fail when either they get tired of the diet routine, the diet doesn’t allow them their favorite food, or that the dietary plan was too restrictive to stick with. Once people lost their weight with quick fix diets they fall back in their old eating plan and stop the perceptional activities and it is widely known that the key to obtaining your ideal weight is to make changes in your diet that you can stick with for life. It is considered that the safe weekly rate of fat loss is between 1lb to 2ib’s per week. Following preliminary initial research in the United Kingdom with Hypnosis for weight reduction, and in particular a programmed which utilized the concept

Gastric Band Hypnosis, it was decided to survey the available quantitative data around this programmed (whilst awaiting the paper to be written following a clinical trial at Hull University) on a much wider scale, an international level, (that would also take into account possible cultural variations), and examine available scientific research into weight reduction and eating habits with a view to offering a better understanding and likely explanation as to why hypnotherapy for fat loss and in particular utilising the concept of Gastric Band Hypnosis may be such an effective solution to weight loss. Here is the link to the study by Sheila Granger: https://reveluketion.fitproconnect.com/ Image/research-report1.pdf The Gastric band hypnosis program is mainly done in four sections in which one-on-one interaction done with clients which has been planned to know how someone feel and thinks about the food, and helps the client to adopt new realistic eating habits that the client can easily add in their diet plan. We trained our clients to be satisfied in small amount of diet without feel them they are taking less diet as they were taken before. So, basically it’s not a diet plan, they are free to eat according to their desire. By using the concept of virtual gastric band clients been addressed the portion control from first session. With this concept client will always realize that he has gastric band issues that need to be controlled,

Spiritual Practice and Religion by Rupa


piritual practice involves the soul and the Divine; this might cause confusion with religion. Actually, spiritual practice and religion are quite different. Spiritual practice respects an individual’s background and needs, instead of focusing on the collective consciousness. Religion emphasizes believing; spiritual practice emphasizes the need for curiosity. Religion requests to follow a procedure; spiritual practice requests the need to face reality in a practical way. Religion likes to have a lot of people; a spiritual practitioner needs to be detached from the general mass of people.

Wishingtree Yoga – Simply Yoga

Rupa (Ivy) Meditation Hatha Yoga Yin Yoga Kirtan

Both spiritual practice and religion ask for surrender. www.wishingtreeyoga.ca The ocean of knowledge is boundless. No matter how much knowledge one has, it is only a drop in the ocean. Anyone who has seen the ocean knows how poor their knowledge is and will surrender to the wise. Surrender to the living wise instead of worship the passing dead, as the same immortal spirit will appear in a new form again and again at a different time. Yoga is a spiritual practice and the science of Selfrealization, and like any other forms of science needs evidence to support; evidence which is from individual direct experience. As this is about the Self, no one can do the practice for others. Through personal practice and only through practice by oneself, can clear the doubt. Faith will come when we see the results of spiritual practice from previous generations and the sumptuous spiritual wealth that has been handed down to us. A sincere spiritual practitioner will follow the genuine teachings of pioneers, but will not imitate their activities. The new explorers’ experience will give us a clearer direction and at the same time create more treasure for the generations to come. Traditional Yoga can cultivate our body, mind and consciousness to understand and experience our inner spiritual nature, and let our Self resonate with the Divine for well-being and happiness. Welcome to attend Rupa’s (Ivy) meditation at Wishingtree Yoga. Rupa has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom. Her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat! Rupa also offers teacher training at Wishingtree Yoga.

The Light of the World Channelled by Lisa Virtue


he light of the world shines in each of you. You have and hold that light from the moment you’re born through your dying day. It never leaves you, is never suppressed, never damaged. The light is your purity. Know this light in its many forms…through expression, thought, relations, interactions, etc. All is created, expressed and experienced as part of the light. For what is there beyond it? With an understanding that all is light, or pure consciousness energy if you will, it becomes clear how all is “meant to be”. All experience is part of the whole of that light. This concept is presented to remind you of the misperception that is prominent. What will it take to adjust the perspective to a more enjoyable feeling one? We in spirit recognize the deep challenge faced by those perceiving in this way. We who channel this have the ease of a different awareness, a shifted vantage point from yours. So how does this aspect of consciousness influence your aspect into a new understanding or perception? We do it a piece at a time, a moment here, a spark there. We weave it into your days and nights to encourage you to flow in the direction you seek. Can the experience of enlightenment, nirvana or ascension truly be attained? Yes it can. However your expectations of how that comes about may be in part what limits its occurrence. How does one let go of their myth of what being is, to embrace a radical departure in concept and practicum? Is it even necessary? We offer to you the idea that enjoyment of where you are and how you feel life runs is in itself an exalted expression. You have much more influence over your experience than you ever seem to allow yourselves. Take that control back and perceive it more as how to live your best expression here, and you will find more things change for you than you thought possible. There are many wonders yet to be explored in this expression of life in your galaxy. Some of you may find yourselves at the point of choosing to shift paradigms, embracing the completely alternate viewpoint on what it is to exist, and thus find your enlightenment. “Bravo for you,” is what may be expected as a comment. However, no expression of What Is is apart from any other. As was mentioned, there is only one thing, the light. So whether you choose to move into a different vantage point in perception that seems radical enough to call enlightenment, or whether you choose what you would see as smaller shifts in your

“regular life”, all have validity, worth, and merit. A part of the misconception is the sense of worthlessness of your experiences or the level of creation. None who perceive from a vantage point such as our own has a value more than you. None have experiences or insights any more worthwhile than yours. Are they “coloured” differently? Yes. There is a wider field of view here. We are choosing to see things from a very different perspective. Yet there is not a one here who is not feeling right along with you, who is not engaged in your creations, experiences and expressions. We are as involved as you, simply in a different way. We all love you. We see you as divine perfection expressing so uniquely in every single aspect. Every particle to every being. Every seed through every building. There is nothing outside of the light. All is part of consciousness. “Exquisite,” is our perception. “Amazing,” “Beautiful,” “Ingenious”. These are the ways we interpret. As one who feels separate, we encourage you to find the delights all around you. To value your joy more, your uniqueness more. There is only eternal consciousness. What you choose to make of this period of expression as your unique essence only adds to the whole. You are unlimited, infinite… choosing to make the most of this expression. While the expression ends its physical at some time, none of you is lost. Find solace in that if you wish. Find freedom in it if you are able. Let it delight and light up your soul if it can. Engage with these words in your unique way. We revel in the mastery of that. We honour you, intrepid ones. Explore. Be. Decide. Elevate. Whatever you choose, however you express, we are with you, we are a part of you, the whole. With infinite love, you are surrounded and supported in living your way, on your terms, whatever those may be. The Infinite Oneness.

Depression, The Muse and Soul Loss What do they have in common?


e are constantly saying, ‘I have so little energy today!, I am so tired. I must be coming down with something” or “ I am so energized today! I could go all day! I feel so good!” When we are depressed, we feel unhappy, unsatisfied and we have no drive or willpower. When we are high, we are happy and gratified with Life and we are driven and inspired. This energy is our soul life force and it affects our moods when it is down. I call it our Muse, that creative force within each one of us. The health, quality and quantity of this energy, determines our overall health. The mental, emotional and physical body will not function without the appropriate fuel. The fuel that fires our spirit is described in many ancient traditions as the Breath of Life, chi, Prana. Did you know that most disease begins with a lack of energy, vital life force and that this energy comes to us directly from our Soul? This energy moves through all life forms and can be described as the Essence, the Soul of life. When this spirit fire, our Soul energy is mismanaged and becomes low for a prolonged period of time, we develop symptoms of burn out, depression and eventually illness. Did you know that the Soul can and will detach from your physical body with traumatic life experiences or from neglect and this is the beginning of disease? Soul loss is directly related to ill health and can begin with burn out and depression. The Chakaura Structural balancing Therapy is a rare treatment that returns soul loss, allowing a person to reconnect and rekindle their soul force so they may heal and embrace health once again. The mismanagement of our Soul energy, is also the beginnings and base cause of all the mood afflictions. Many people believe these mood disorders are incurable and can only be managed with the numbing anti-depressant pills they are told to take. Anti-depressants are the quick fix, sometimes needed when things go to far, but definitely not a long term cure or acceptable way of life. Someone who suffers from depression and worse are simply suffering from an ongoing long term mismanagement of their life force, a disconnection of

their soul, which can be easily corrected with proper self knowledge, discipline and energy management. Stress is the driving force and Lord knows our society has plenty of this each moment of each day. The world outside of us is a direct reflection of what is going on within each of us. Simply put, it has to do with fuel\ energy consumption and management. Depression is not something you are stuck with for the rest of your life. It is not incurable. It is simply a mismanaged life style, that with proper education and daily practices, and proper nutrition can be rectified, balanced so that Perfect health can be present. To know more on this or anything else I share, I offer informative seminars on the subjects I write and teach about. Please contact me for more information or to book a consult if you suffer from depression and are looking for a healthy alternative.
