Making a Good Impression with Confidence


veryone judges you to some extent within the first few seconds of meeting you. It can take a considerable amount of time to overcome a bad first-impression. Save yourself this hassle by presenting yourself in the best possible light up front. You will make feel more confident and influence people for the good!! Always remember that people ultimately decide how much they like you based on how you make them feel. Make someone feel confident and good about themselves in your presence and you will have a friend for life. It is not difficult to make a good first-impression: • Begin your interactions with a smile. Smiling makes you feel better and helps you to relax. It also puts the other person in a positive mood. Smiling is just a good policy to adopt. Of course, smiling isn’t always appropriate. For example, delivering bad news while smiling would not go over well.

Free Laughter Yoga Classes!

• Practice good eye contact. Make solid eye contact with everyone you meet or speak with. Failing to make eye contact shows that you are either disinterested or lack confidence. Practice with strangers. Make eye contact with everyone you walk by on the street or in a store. • Be comfortable and confident. When you feel good, you make the people around you feel good, too. Have you ever noticed that being around someone that’s nervous or uncomfortable makes you feel uncomfortable, too? Radiate confidence, without being obnoxious, and others will enjoy your presence.


Life is easier when others have a positive opinion about you. It is the little things that count. Eye-contact, confidence and listening skills can go a long way toward putting your best foot forward. When others perceive you favorably, you receive more trust and consideration. People like you more, too. Show that you respect and care about others, and they will do the same for you. It is not that hard to accomplish. Think about the people you know that make a good first-impression. How do they do it?

In Search of The Elusive Tea Tree


ne would imagine that the tea tree plant, indigenous to Australia, would be easily spotted while on a visit to‌...Australia. I recently discovered this is not the case. In my mind, I had thought I would be meditating in eucalyptus forests and discovering groves of the tea tree shrub almost immediately. My research had turned up some plantations/essential oil distillers in the areas I was visiting, but the contacts were less than enthusiastic about my visiting behind the scenes or writing about their businesses. We did locate one tea tree distiller while in Byron Bay, but could only see the plants at a distance. I was keen to see these particular plants because, as an aromatherapist, I have worked with the essential oils distilled from tea tree, lemon tea tree (a different species) and four kinds of eucalyptus, and I was curious to see where the oils originated.

I am fond of both oils because of their many wonderful properties, ease of availability, and low cost compared to some other plants, which do not yield their essential oil easily or prolifically. Tea tree is known for its antibacterial properties, but did you know that it is a wonderful wound healer?! Eucalyptus is a wonderful oil to use to relieve congestion and calm the spirit. Lemon-scented oils like eucalyptus citriodora can be used to help ward off mosquitoes. Both eucalyptus and tea tree are also immune-boosting. Perfect additions to any medicine cabinet! Come visit us and explore the over 100 different essential oils we stock at Planet Botanix!

Spring Health Care Tips


Wishingtree Yoga

By Ivy Xie-McIsaac, E-RYT200, YACEP

The liver corresponds to the element Wood and the season Spring. The liver regulates blood circulation and acts like a cleaner to clear the toxins out of the body. When we are resting or sleeping, the liver is filtering, detoxifying and storing the blood. When we are active, the liver exports the blood. Part of the functions of the liver include clearing harmful substances in the blood, resisting infections by producing immune factors and removing bacteria from the bloodstream. When the liver works well, we will have a clean internal environment. The free flow of Qi (life force) in the Liver meridian will ensure the free flow of blood. Sleeping too late (after 11pm) or getting up too early (before 3am) as well as alcohol use will over stimulate the functioning of the liver and cause severe imbalance in its function. An imbalance in liver function will cause a person to anger easily. For the body, spring is time to change a heavy diet to a lighter diet, by eating even more vegetables. Spring is also the best time to detox. Lemon juice plus honey helps to cleanse the inside of the body. We can also spend some time to clean the house to create a nice environment. Walking in nature or gardening helps us to be grounded. In Spring, the wind is the main cause of disease and known as the Evil wind(邪气) as the cold from winter is still in the air. A Chinese proverb tells us “In spring, it’s better to overdress rather than underdress even if the weather looks warm.” A direct experience can give us improper perception. In the story of The Blind Men and an Elephant, all


Join Ivy for the 50H Yin Yoga Teacher Training Begins on June 10

the blind men believe they know what they are touching, but they don’t know they are touching an elephant. Traditional Chinese Medicine emphasizes to look at the full picture and find the root of the disease instead of treating only where the symptoms appear. The liver’s opening is the eyes. An eye problem can be a liver problem manifested in the eyes. When we know the cause of the symptom then we can be healed faster. Wishingtree Yoga is offering a 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training starting June 10, 2019. Ivy’s geography background and travel have given her a unique perspective. Her book A Complete Yoga Manual is a bridge between east and west, modern and ancient, theory and practice. The book is available at Singing Pebble Books.

Why I am a Vegan


his month’s theme for Tone is vegetarianism. I want to use this opportunity to share my experience of being vegetarian with all of you. I’ve been a vegetarian for 45 years and mainly vegan in the last decade. As a child, I was always an animal lover. Animals were a source of joy and comfort for me and I spent many hours imitating the sounds of our canary or imitating the sounds of our cat calling her litter of cute, fluffy white balls of fur. Later on in my teens, I met a friend who was a vegetarian. He would invite me and a few friends for meals and I loved the taste and how I felt afterwards. Above all, I loved the idea to keep animals off my plate. When I was 16 years old I became a vegetarian (I ate eggs and dairy, but no seafood, nor fish, nor meat). Now at 61, I take no medication and I have seen my health improve throughout the years. As a child, I suffered from yearly chronic bronchitis. Currently, I haven’t had a cold or flu in the last four or five years. My vegetarianism, along with my husband’s, gradually progressed into veganism about 10 years and we are loving it! Here are five reasons why I believe that it is beneficial to either become a vegan or to consume less animal products: 1. It saves animals from the cruel meat industry that is mainly concerned with productivity. It also saves animals from a horrific trip to the slaughterhouse or just from an early death, assuming that they are free range. Even free range are led to be killed, likely before they would ever choose to. For me that was enough to convince me to avoid meat all together. 2. To be healthier: It is easy to have a balanced vegan diet as vegan recipes abound online and we can

easily find great vegan recipe books. I only take Vitamin D and B12 as supplements. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegans are less likely to develop heart disease, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure compared to meat eaters. Vegans get  all the nutrients that they need  to be healthy, such as carbohydrates, fats, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. 3. To prevent starvation: Eating meat doesn’t just hurt animals—it hurts people too. It takes tons of crops and water to raise farmed animals. In fact, it takes up to 13 pounds of grain to produce just one pound of animal flesh! All that plant food could be used much more efficiently if people just ate it directly. 4. Help the planet: Meat is not environmentally friendly. Consuming meat is actually one of the worst things that you can do for the earth. Meat production is  wasteful  and causes enormous amounts of pollution and the industry is also one of the biggest causes of climate change. 5. Animals are smarter than we know: All animals experience love, fear and compassion. Some are perhaps more evolved then some humans who aren’t really aware of their environment and feelings of others. I believe that they are also a gift to us. They can be healing and remind us to slow down and enjoy life. Lynne Cardinal is a coach and conference leader.

A Funded Program for those Newly Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Anne Pitman


cancer diagnosis shatters normalcy. Tests must be done, decisions made and appointments kept. Underneath the practicalities of treatment, fear and anxiety often rise. What is needed at this difficult time,are good companions: people who understand and can sit with the winds of frightening change, who can offer both grounding and solid holistic health information and treatment, and who can help those newly diagnosed, through breath and movement, regain a sense of agency. The Head Start Program at the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre offers such support. Meant to fill the gap between diagnosis and medical treatment, Head Start gathers people newly diagnosed, over 5 weeks (with meetings once a week) to: 1) Help with anxiety and fear. Gentle movement and simple breath techniques are offered to help the nervous system mediate the initial diagnosis shock. Slowly and over the five weeks, gentle yoga, meditation and various techniques (such as tapping and visualization), are employed to help the nervous system downregulate. Many establish a home-based calming practice for the weeks ahead. 2) Provide evidence-based information. OICC practitioners offer their expertise in nutrition, naturopathy, acupuncture, massage therapy, physiotherapy, hypnotherapy, yoga therapy, psychotherapy, reflexology and reiki. Topics cover everything from what foods to consider, to how to manage side effects (such as lymphedema and neuropathy). 3) Offer support. As the attendees share their story (or simply sit in silence), a great trust and bond develops. Without exception, all the groups that have attended Head Start, continue to meet years afterward, some at our monthly Head Start Alumni meetings. Continued support is also available through regular clinical appointments, and through programming such as Meditation, Gentle Yoga, and Nutrition in the Kitchen. Friendships made during Head Start flourish long after treatment ends. The OICC is a not-for profit complementary care centre. People (within three months of their diagnosis) are welcome to apply to the Head Start program at Donations, with thanks, for the OICC can be made to the Bryan Murray Legacy Fund at

Question: Should we always speak the truth or is it sometimes better to remain silent? SRI CHINMOY: We have to know whether by telling the truth we are awakening the divine consciousness in others or creating more hostility in them. Sometimes we tell the truth just in order to say, “I know the truth and you should also know the truth.” But by telling others the truth with that attitude, we are not doing them any good. They will simply be hurt and become hostile towards us. So let us be very careful to remember that often the world is not ready to listen to the truth and accept the truth. The world is ready only to hear appreciation or flattery from us, even if it does not deserve it. We may think that by remaining silent we are simply not antagonising anybody. But our very silence, if it is divine silence, emanates inner divinity. If we truly live in silence, in purest silence, then automatically love and inner joy grow within us. And this inner divinity enters into those who are around us. Then they will really love us, for unconsciously they will feel something beneficial coming from us. They may not actually know what we are offering them, but they will feel that we are giving them something solid, soulful and significant, which they need. God will immediately bless us if we can turn our existence into a sea of silence and free ourselves from this world of turmoil, worries and hesitation. In the sea of silence grows our true divine life. The divine life can grow in each individual only if he can have silence within and silence without. This silence is not the silence of a dead person. It will act most dynamically, most powerfully, but not in an aggressive way. While we are acting, inwardly we remain calm and poised. Everything is done in the inner world, the soul’s world, where silence is most dynamic and most fulfilling. When we have that kind of silence, naturally God will bless us, because we have discovered the Truth and we are living the Truth. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

TOTAL NUTRITION DIVA Live Blood Analysis Live Blood Analysis is the process of looking at live blood sample through the microscope in order to help the patient arrive at their optimum level of health. Through looking at indicators within the blood we can determine how well the body is handling daily stressors (such as environmental toxins, diet and lifestyle, mental/emotional stressors, medical treatments and procedures etc) and what needs to be done in order to bring the body back into balance. It is a preventative tool that is an extremely useful to bring the body back to its optimum state of functioning. Nutrition Counseling Nutrition Counseling refers to the process of understanding the unique way that each person’s body functions and works at its optimum. Various measures are then implemented in order to bring about balance and health in the patient. A number of methods are used in order to bring forth a deeper sense of health and well being including diet, lifestyle, herbs, minerals, vitamins and minerals. FAQs: LIVE CELL MICROSCOPY What is it?Around the world, the blood is known as ‘the river of life.’ That is because the blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells and carries wastes away from them. By projecting a small drop of blood from the tip of a finger on to a darkfield microscope I am able to see my clients blood ecology. What can it tell me?The human body is constantly trying to achieve homeostasis, or, simply put, balance. In conjunction with a nutritional assessment, live cell microscopy can be used to help clients work towards optimal nutritional wellness by detecting possible imbalances such as: • nutritional • hormonal • oxidativestress (free radicals) • liver stress • microbial activity • under-oxygenation • immune stress • over-active or under-active digestion The live cell microscopist then works with the client to design a nutritional and lifestyle plan that supports the body as it attempts to regain optimal balance.

Live Blood Analysis Consult

Why am I seeing lots of WBC when there is no injury or any other issues like fighting an infection etc?


hronic inflammation starts with the immune system, which is the body’s first defense against any perceived harm. The body’s bone marrow dispatches white blood cells to combat infection and start the healing process. But sometimes signals get crossed and the immune system kicks in when there is no injury but dispatches squads of white blood cells anyway. There’s nothing to heal, so they linger and surround organs and other cells in the body that routinely fight off disease, transforming them into free radicals and causing chronic inflammation, otherwise known as oxidative stress. STRESS - the biggest cause of “Disease” and “Dis-Ease”. Just about anything causes oxidative stress - here’s just a few examples: alcohol, pesticides, exposure to toxins, not eating enough fruits and vegetables, smoking, sugar, air and water pollutants...and the list goes on.

Damage to your cells, or the process of oxidation, can leave you vulnerable to health risks like cardiovascular disease, joint damage, obesity, insulin resistance, memory loss, accelerated aging and depression and so on. You might think that taking a long list of vitamins and minerals is necessary to fight all the damaging effects of oxidation. But just the opposite is true when you take the wrong type and quality and combinations of them.....Come see me at “Manotick Natural Market” so I can guide you on the right path.

Exercising Safely & Gradually

Reprogramming the subconscious, re-growing telomeres, and changing the expression of DNA

By MT Martee ThOMus TegTmeyer, Instructor/Consultant/ Practitioner of creative solutions Updated from the April 2019 USA Touch for Health 44th Annual Conference journal


ow you would you like to assist yourself, your family, your clients on how to make your life better with the vibration and frequency of natural healing energy to relieve mental, emotional and physical strain. At the April 2019 Touch for Health USA conference, Martee launched Tegtmeyer Regenerative Integration Method in action (TRIM™) in action, a specialized exercise program, which focuses on effective adjustments and tweaks to turbo-charge physical and verbal exercises. The intent, objective, and goal is functional fitness by “choosing wellbeing over frailty” and thereby improve quality of life “wellbeing is wealth”. TRIM™ is keen on the “wellbeing span” as appropriate to invigorate, re-vitalize clients into functional fitness by slowly and gradually increasing intensity. Each situation may require different tools to be most effective for the needs the clients present on the day of the exercise class. TRIM™ meets clients where they are, and assists taking them to where they are going. This author has had many clients with walkers, some with canes and others in wheelchairs, and many nearing the end stages of life, before transferring to long-term care nursing homes or palliative care. For those who excel, of course, the instructor encourages them to take on new challenges such as “urban poling”, getting out into nature, and/or joining a fitness club of their choice. Illustrating the benefits and advantages of TRIM™ in action Over 25 years Martee has studied the art of creative solutions and has integrated many reflexes: neurolymphatic, neurovascular, Shealy acu-points, brain-spinal - - in the 60 minute exercise routine. Building around a core from the Victorian Order of Nurses, SMART(R) Seniors Maintaining Active Roles Together program, he started by putting in the Touch for Health System 14 priority meridian muscles dance. Then he adapted elements from Masters: Sha, Moy, Chia, Choa; Mrs. Kean, Mrs. Dennsion; and Drs. Schmitt, Deal, Dennison, Shealy. From workshop materials dated 2016 in a March 18, 2017, BONEFIT™ Conference Basic workshop, Osteoporosis Canada recommends “Tai Chi” nine (9) times in print. During the training the instructor informed participants that there were no contraindications for dynamic “Tai Chi” while there are some for Yoga and Pilates. Accordingly, the instructor encouraged the participants to use elements of “Tai Chi” whenever we could.

“Exercise is a proven anti-ageing pill” ‘bringing light in to break up blockages of “movement shadows” in motion ranges of ageing muscles; see videoclip: Andrew Kirby Paraphrased consistent feedback from clients include: “I feel tingly all over.” (95 year old woman in retirement home) “We can walk further when walking the dog” (couple in rural class) “I no longer shuffle from fear; I lift up my feet to walk and practice between the house and the barn” (woman in rural class who received lots of pain relief and improved coordination) “I can move my left knee again.” (former boxer, and motorcycle accident victim) “I can stand up and sit down independently without looking behind me or using my arms.” (dual knee transplant recipient) “The pain is gone.” (woman in her 90s) Over a longer term of 22 months, a mid-eighties active woman hunched over her walker with extreme kyphosis GRADUALLY improved her core strength & coordination. With mutual agreement about every seven months, her family moved her walker arm stems up one inch at a time. With her permission, Martee moved the walker arm stems up the last inch….now a total of three (3) inches! -- to the arm stem’s maximum -- ideal for her to stand erect! See photo (photographed & used with permission)! More recently, a woman in her sixties who had been hospitalized four times for 19 days (pneumonia, heart attack, COPD flare-up twice) has not been hospitalized since joining the VON Falls Prevention Clinic & VON fitness classes in 2018. One year later as of April 2019, she stands over one inch taller, has more energy, feels more flexible and confident. Her GP and rheumatologist are referring people to the VON website. In April, a new client with many past trauma events reported that after only four exercise classes, he and others around him noticed his arm and shoulder moving much higher than before. In closing, Martee offers private classes and one-onone personal training for personal bests, and muscle, joint and bone integrity. The benefits include release of physical and emotional strain and higher levels of wellbeing, curiosity, forgiveness and acceptance. To find out more come to the EnergyBEE he has been hosting for the last 20 years. The guest presenter for 6:30pm Friday, May 10, 2019 is Caroline Anderson, Owner of “Faith Hope Love Essential Oils” presenting on Emotion Edge and the benefits of Essential Oils.

What Is The Breakthrough Experience? Part 3



ut there’s always that thing of momentum. There may be a week, two weeks, three weeks in between sessions where life can throw you a curveball. Where a little bit of motivation may go down. Where a little bit of, what is the word that I’m looking for, a little bit of that effort and that energy that you put in may subside a little bit. It’s almost like pushing that snowball if you will, up the mountain and it takes all that effort, all that volition. So when you come in again for the second session, we’re not at the bottom, by no means. We’re right up there near the end, but we still got to do a little bit more pushing, since some time and effort’s gonna be taken from that. Still, again, it’s still more powerful than about any other form of therapy healing that I’ve found or personal change work out there. But the difference between that breakthrough session is we’re locked in a room for four hours, yay, running away so we have all that momentum is the word I’m looking for. Where

you don’t have to worry about pushing up because once we’ve taken that three hours to push that ball up to the top of the mountain, then essentially we let that sucker go and it just falls away because all the work’s done. And the interesting thing is once we start to delete, delete, delete, one problem, the rest fall in line. It’s almost like a domino effect. And again, if there’s an hour or a week or so in between sessions, sometimes you have to do a little bit more work with setting up those dominoes, but in that breakthrough session, we knock them all down once and for all and it’s gone. It’s essentially doing that heavy lifting and removing that big, nasty, negativity that’s been holding you back. So when you leave there, you feel transformed. You don’t just feel that, oh, I don’t feel anxious anymore, or yippee, I don’t smoke anymore. You feel that your life has changed because your life has changed and it’s an amazing, powerful process and it’s the way that I’m doing more and more of my work these days because I believe in giving people that experience of transformation when they come in. That’s what a breakthrough session is. I can’t sing its praises highly enough.

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

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

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


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

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

May 2019

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

I’ve kind of done a soft launch, if you will, with some clients over the last month or so, and the results have been mind-blowing, even essentially blowing my mind how successful kind of me asking myself why I was not doing this earlier. I don’t know. I guess I was procrastinating, but don’t you procrastinate. Don’t be like me. Change like I did, and reach out and go for that revolution in your life. That change of the breakthrough session. So hopefully now you know what a breakthrough session is. We eliminate and we delete, delete, delete, delete all that negativity. Limited decisions, negative beliefs about yourself. All the stuff that you were told about yourself that’s been holding you back. All those traumas that you may have experienced in your life, we get rid of them all, all of them. That’s right. Even those ones that are lurking back there. Then we set up the future, which is so, so key, because once we’ve cleared all that junk out of the way, there can sometimes be an instance where someone says, “Well, what’s next?” Oh that’s when the second sheet of paper comes in and everything you want, we install in your mind to make it inevitable that it is gonna happen. Let the law of attraction like setting up the inner compass inside that brings you closer and closer to that compelling future so it becomes vivid and it becomes real for you. I’ve been Luke Michael Howard. Owner, and hypnotist of Lukenosis Hypnosis explaining the breakthrough session. Please, if you’ve got any more questions about what the breakthrough session is, what happens in it, please leave your comments below and I certainly will get back to them all Always Believe, Luke Michel Howard PhD Ottawa Clinical Hypnotist

Vesak Day Celebration May 5 in Ottawa City Hall

Ian Prattis he roaring beat of Cambodian temple drums opens the day with a bang. They are followed in procession by the monastic Sangha walking mindfully to their places next to the podium, led by Bhante Savath from the Cambodian Temple in Ottawa. From the monastic chanting all the way through to the finale – the day unfolds in a majestic way. City Hall is decorated with beautiful artwork, food tables and booths for Asian embassies and other community groups for this celebration of Vesak Day. It is always a stunning day. Asian Buddhist communities in Ottawa – from Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea, Indonesia, Laos, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand - created this Vesak Celebration with Visita Leelaratna organizing the many parts of the day. He is the founder of this celebration. The first Vesak Festival in 2014 received guidance from three spiritual advisors – Master Bon Dat, Bhante Rath Sam and Dharmacharya Ian Prattis. They each come from different Buddhist traditions in Ottawa and three different countries – Vietnam, Cambodia, Canada. They established a common cause to spread the seeds of Buddha Mind across Ottawa by creating an atmosphere of generosity, humility and kindness. The Vesak and Asian Heritage nature of the event brings messages from the Governor-General, Prime Minister of Canada, and the Mayor of Ottawa. This is a wonderful support for multi-culturalism and interbeing from all levels of government in Canada. The vigorous Lion Dance from the Vietnamese Youth Group always lights up the crowd. A talk on Loving Kindness is offered by the Buddha Meditation Centre in Toronto. Lawrence Greenspon also talks about his tour of Buddhist World Heritage sites in Asia. Connections are made, bridges are crossed and the organizers and audience went home very happy. Here is some background about Vesak and the Buddha. Buddhism is based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, who lived and taught in India ca. 2,600 years ago. 550 million people in the world identify Buddhism as their religion or way of life. Vesākha Day is the day Buddhists remember the birth, the enlightenment, and the passing away of the Buddha. The United Nations marks Vesākha Day as an official holiday, worldwide. As Buddhism spread from India, it was adapted to many cultures, and consequently Vesākha Day is celebrated in many different ways in various countries, such as China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Burma, Tibet, Bhutan, Thailand, and Nepal, the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama. Some will visit their local temple before dawn, to raise the official Buddhist flag, which represents a rainbow. Some may bring simple offerings of flowers, candles and incense, which serve as a reminder that just as the beautiful flowers will wither, and the candles burn out, so too is life subject to impermanence. In some countries, birds and animals are released in a symbolic act of liberation. Vesākha Day is therefore a time when we reach out across the various Buddhist traditions to celebrate, and to non-Buddhists to enjoy dialogue and harmony. And that is what happens in Ottawa City Hall on May 5, 2019!

In the Presence of Beauty

By Yola Dunne, practitioner of the Healing & Shamanic Arts ~


n the presence of Beauty the mundane becomes magical. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. We get a glimpse into a world that belongs in the realm of goodness, a place where the soul makes its home. Beauty is ever-changing, transforming itself as it is touched by the loving heart of the beholder. Beauty holds powerful medicine. It is capable of transforming all woes. The reverent state that Beauty entices makes us forget, if only for a moment, the intricate details of our lives. It gives amnesia to suffering. It makes a broken heart blind to separation and all of a sudden makes it whole again. In Beauty, we belong. Beauty is where heaven and earth meet. It is where the sun and the moon dance an ancient waltz. It is where the mind is sweet-talked by the heart into softening its stance. It is where presence finally takes hold of the soul. It is a place where discord takes a respite in the embrace of wholeness. In the sacred territory of Beauty we are re-membered. We breathe in the power of life and finally allow ourselves to be nourished by it. It is a land that belongs to all creatures, a land that is owned by no one but tended by All. It reminds us we are a passerby on this good earth. The Beauty Way is one that returns us to what is important and essential. It is made of starlight, of tears, of a child’s smile and the call of the wild. It is found in the soft touch of a lovers’ hand, the intimate song of the river, the thrilling hoot of the owl in the depth of night. Within us beauty can never be destroyed. It shares sacred space with grace and eternity. To summon Beauty within daily life is a rich ritual filled with divine scent. When we follow its exquisite fragrance it takes us to our altar grounds, to our friends and families and loved ones, to the crack that lets light in to the darkest places. Summoning Beauty teaches simplicity and the infinite potential of our humanity. Beauty is the language of the soul and the imagination that inspires evolutionary consciousness. May our earth walk be gentle and be blessed with the Presence of Beauty.

Treating Mind-Body Syndromes with SensoriMotor Repatterning


n an ideal treatment session, I treat all clients for faulty movement patterns arising from physical injuries and surgeries, then I treat them for compensation patterns resulting from emotional trauma and stress. The first is an easy sell for most clients. The latter, which is critical for physical well being, is understandably a much harder concept for people to comprehend and accept. I’m a great believer in Dr. Sarno’s theory on the mind-body connection. Dr. Sarno believes our brain can create physical pain as a distraction from emotional, unconscious pain. If I treated every patient just by focusing on past and present trauma/stress, I estimate 80% of all my clients would recover from their symptoms. With SensoriMotor Repatterning (SMR), I look for faulty sensory input that is causing the brain to create incorrect motor control output. To do so, I test many muscles of the body. Those that test “weak” are actually neurologically inhibited. As the brain wants to be optimally functional, I can show the brain the dysfunction, the cause of the dysfunction, and a more functional way to operate. The effect is an immediate and lasting strengthening of the previously “weak” muscles. Historically, I got great results from treating inhibited muscles from previous injuries, but I recognized that some people would return with the same or different symptoms. I began to understand that there was underlying stress in these clients that needed to be addressed to truly correct the dysfunctions so that the physical body remained strong and pain-free.

I spent much time learning various methods of destressing the body of previous trauma. The meridian system of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was by far the best approach. For millennia, TCM has understood the mind and body are interconnected. Implementing various meridian treatments into SMR gave me an elaborate feedback loop to help indirectly release stress/trauma stored in the body by the mind. My ability to help people with all kinds of bizarre and “untreatable” conditions expanded exponentially; I could have people pain-free in just a few sessions when clients had tried to find cures via physiotherapy, etc. for years. When I was developing the stress/trauma treatment protocols for SMR, I had to be mindful as a Registered Massage Therapist to stay within my scope of practice. For this reason, I do not need to know the nature of the stress or trauma that may be causing current symptoms. I can identify muscles that are in an inhibited or overactive pattern, use the techniques to offset the stress/trauma within the body and re-check if the muscles have returned to normal function. This provides a unique feedback loop for the client; they can experience changes in how their body functions within a session and see a prime example of the mind-body connection. About the Author: Colin Liggett RMT is the creator of SensoriMotor Repatterning. He created SMR to correct faulty compensation patterns generated by injuries, surgery, emotional trauma and stress. Colin is originally from N. Ireland and moved to Ottawa in 2016.

Thoughts to Share Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol


t was raining and dreary outside as I sat in a little café enjoying a latté and studying a chapter to be discussed. Suddenly I felt pulled to get pencil and paper and write down thoughts that began pouring in. The following are those thoughts: ‘Some people feel or believe that they are conscious just because they are awake, in the literal sense. This is being unconscious. When we are truly conscious, we are one with the Divine Love residing in us all (life/everything). Being conscious is when we move, think, trust with ease the natural untainted energy within. When we are frustrated, agitated, nervous, anxious, etc. we are associating with the ego mind. Being in a calm and still state we allow ourselves the presence to receive our Spirit/Soul’s messages of Loving guidance. These will always be loving and have Love at the core. Somewhere in the Bible it is written that God knows our needs before we do and will provide us with all of them – obviously this is not a direct quote but hopefully you get the drift. If we stop “trying” or thinking that we need to have this or that or be a certain way, we will open ourselves to receiving more than we could every dream of. The “Universe/God/Creator” provides us with all God needs us to have in order to fulfill His/Her/It’s purpose. It is this purpose we are here to serve. Jesus is the perfect example as he trusted and was/is One with the Father/Creator.’

For me these words contain a message that we aren’t listening to the God within if we are struggling, needing or wanting. The mind, when relaxed and clear is more fully open to receiving the messages that guide us towards the fulfilment of our earthly mission – to be of service. Together, our consciousness will become One brilliant Entity of Love. Stilling the mind by practicing Yoga or doing anything that brings you to the awareness within is destined to be a beautiful thing. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. 613-263-7925

Afternoon Energy Therapy Workshop:

Get your energy flowing and health thriving!


o you ever feel that the energy in your body is stuck or that your mind keeps looping the same thoughts and your behaviour is stuck in the same patterns as well? Our energy needs to be flowing to keep our bodies vital, healthy and strong. “Flow follows function”, e.g. our bodies’ energies animate and support its physical structures and their functions. If our energy becomes stuck, we will often physically feel stuck, as well as on the mental/emotional levels, e.g. relationships, work, environments. Our energy can become blocked for various reasons, e.g. excess toxins, muscular or other constriction, interference from other energies, prolonged stress that keeps us in survival mode, etc. In particular, when our Sympathetic Nervous System (fight or flight response) and/or Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest and digest and also freeze) are stuck on “on,” we will often feel that we are either in overdrive, crashing from fatigue, or unable to feel much of anything. Various kinds of trauma can leave our Nervous Systems overfiring and our bodies and minds feeling stuck, overwhelmed and fearful. During my BodyTalk session with Jaya, she energetically released an old, angry surgical scar on my body, which was followed by a huge release of energy that flowed up and down my body - I was in awe! It was awesome to know that I can still feel that kind of energy, which I really haven’t felt in decades. It feels as though the joy in me has been set free and is once again spontaneous and just jumping out of me! I am so grateful to feel this again and many of my other symptoms fading and/or disappearing - this work is a big WOW. ~ Carolann, Psychotherapist, Ottawa If you would like to get your energy flowing, feel free to come in for BodyTalk energy therapy and/or Somatic Experiencing trauma integration therapy session with Jaya Hollohan by booking in via her website at: www.

We welcome all interested individuals who wish to know more of this Original Ascended Master Teaching. For further information please call us at 834-8896.


ver the years I have been in situations where I wanted to go after goals but was unable to muster the required energy to do so. The result of this inaction was that these goals were never achieved, and many remain on my “To Do List” to this day. I’m sure that you have been there as well. What causes us to stay put and not go after these goals? I would argue that humans have this natural desire to avoid pain therefore when they are confronted with a choice that will require them to get out of their comfort zone, they will choose not to move forward. Being safe is a good thing because of the familiarity with that whole environment. At this point in your life, you must ask yourself this fundamental question: How has this desire to stay safe served me? Have I walked away from dreams that could have changed the course of my life if I had decided to go for them? What have I missed out on because of my fear of moving forward? What pain have I inflicted on myself and my family for not moving away from this safe zone? What is the price that I have paid for doing nothing? Take a few minutes to reflect on your life then answer these questions as they pertain to your own situation. Maybe the feeling of regret will surface and nothing else will come of it. Maybe you will get all fired up because today is the day that you will finally do the leap of faith to go after your elusive dream(s). Maybe you have reached a point in your life where moving away from safe will be less painful than staying where you are now. Lock your vision onto that goal(s) and take the first step away from safe.

Darshan with Mother Meera By Reza Shadman am very happy to announce that after a few years gap Mother Meera will be back in Ottawa on Saturday, May 11th. It was very exciting to hear that a North American tour has been arranged even though Mother has been very busy with touring European cities and schools in India. On behalf of Mother Meera’s Society, I invite you to experience Mother’s Darshan, her offering of light. This is a free event but you need to register at www. Mother Meera was born in India and was recognized to be an Avatar from early on, a Divine incarnation who appears for the purpose of uplifting humanity. She travels the world extensively and offers Darshan in silence:


her light brought me joy. I felt happy during and after Darshan and that was enough to follow her. She has supported me ever since. I asked for help for my father and he received it, not knowing where it has come from. A dear friend, Minoo, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and was open enough to reach out to Mother. She now has the utmost respect for her. I invite you to experience this light for yourself. We are looking for volunteers. You can call 6137940677 or email

The Key to Healing Abandonment by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapy and Ascension Healing


bandonment is a painful wound, whether you experienced it as a child, or re-experience the pattern later in life. Feeling mistrust of others, uncertainty that someone will be ‘there’ for you when you need them, or a sense that you’re unworthy of having your needs met, fosters hurt, disappointment and fear. To keep looking for reassurance from others results in more pain, and yet this is often what people do. There’s a yearning for acknowledgment, and needs turn into neediness. You compromise your boundaries and tolerate a lot in return for a sense of security, to the degree that you abandon what is true for you and your own needs. Ultimately, healing abandonment comes from facing your worst fear of feeling alone and powerless, and learning to support yourself: * If you feel that someone is not responding to your needs as you would like, turn inward toward the awareness of your own feelings so that you can tend to them with loving care. This is what your inner child has been needing. Be willing to listen to his/her emotions, and hold steady in your own power. Fulfill your own needs accordingly. * If your tendency is to almost automatically look to others for opinions, support, or distraction, take some time to be with yourself first and look to your own company or inner wisdom. Each occasion that you do this cultivates self-trust and self-reliance, and fortifies your authentic power. * If you feel rejected, don’t take it personally. Recognize that another’s behaviour is a reflection of their wounds. Instead, reassure your own inner child that s/he is okay no matter what has transpired. Deepen your bond with lovingkindness and acceptance of him/her.

Take the time to know your inner child, and be his/ her loving God-Parent. You need not feel powerless anymore. This is the love you’ve wanted all along. This is your freedom! 18 yrs. experience: intuitive energy education, counselling, healing & multi-dimensional ascension clearing. Appointments in person or skype/phone 613-253-2888.

Story Healing & Emotional Wellness


ay House graciously offered me the opportunity to listen to a free seven-part documentary on “The Truth About Cancer” by the Bollingers. Once a day interviews by leading medical doctors specializing in cancer treatment appeared in my mailbox. The bottom line is that cancer is not a death sentence. We need to understand that cancer incubates for a minimum of ten years before it can be detected. So the recommendation from all of these medical doctors from the Orient is why not consider a wellness plan to life? (The Bollingers have a website, the truth about cancer and books that you can explore.) I do not give an opinion about cancer treatment yet there is one subject where I can assist in healing. These doctors put their clients through what they called emotional detox and story healing as part of their service. These are two components that are crucial to explore in any serious health issue. It’s not only about treating the physical symptoms but treating the individual as a whole. In my shamanic reflexology practice, I have developed a healing approach unique to me. It involves emotional detox and story healing. I worked with a woman, I’ll call her Jane, who had an advanced, aggressive cancer. Her friends asked her to see me. She was also doing acupuncture. I saw her twice and asked she continue acupuncture.

She went through standard medical treatments and continued acupuncture. She defeated all odds and after several months, was declared cancer free. The family went on a holiday and when they came back, the doctor whom she trusted, recommended she start taking a particular pill in case the cancer came back. Within a short time, she passed away from the side effects of this pill. Her immune system was too weak to fight it. Her husband called me to let me know of her passing. He wanted me to know that of all the people his wife had seen, and he didn’t know what I had said or done, whatever happened between us, ended up being the most effective and most helpful. She passed away peacefully in his arms. A little while later, I had a vivid, lucid dream where Jane was shaking me awake – all she kept on saying was “You have to tell them, they don’t know”. She never told me what that was. Yet through understanding the complexity of illness, it has been proven in the Orient that energy work is beneficial – especially when it comes to emotional detox and a spiritual practice. This is what we, in the Western world, have not yet connected to enough. They claim that everything starts in the mind and that our traumatic stories need to be heard and energetically healed. In June, I will host a story-healing workshop “for women only” called “Footprints in the Sand”. We will explore the energetic subtle body, emotional detox, and suggestions for a wellness plan you can implement for you and your family.

LET US BEGIN Channelled by Lisa Virtue


t is time to understand more about yourselves. It is time to know more about who you are underneath your human personality and the busyness of your dayto-day lives. We have written often of the true self and knowing that you are loved beyond the mind’s reason. This is to be a basis of understanding from now forward. This we shall now move beyond to explore the self and others as they relate to oneness. Today we bring to you the idea that you are part of the One, the All-ness of creation, of existence. As you breathe, your awareness is finite in the limited scope of this life as who you see yourself as. The human person with a name. As you feel, you feel with your sensing abilities. As you think, you ruminate with a mind of creative power, born of the physical, yet inspired often from an intangible source. How you interact in the world is a manifestation of the focus given. Your self lies beyond all of these sensations and physical life knowings. Your self is vast beyond comprehension of parameters that appear to exist here for you in this life. Yet the perceived limitations and experiences you have here, do not change the truth of the vast consciousness that is the nature of your essence. The dream does not change the dreamer, if you will. When you sleep, you have experiences in your dream worlds, yet awake once again back to who you have been all along. The dreams felt real. The scenarios had importance to them. In fact, many of your dream scenarios help the physical person that is you to make sense of the goings on in your life. Insights come forth to aid your progression and enrich your life experience. The dream that is this life you are experiencing has far more staying power than those during the night. There is a greater permanence to this exploration you are on. So you feel a great connection to this life self and what it is made of.

The dreamer beyond this dream of life on Earth is vast in consciousness. Unlimited by space and time the constructs of the world of the dream. You have created a vast universe as a playground for exploration. Wherever the minds and imaginations take you is available to explore here. So the self you seek to define as your greater being or essence is truly incapable of being described in the context of the dream. In your quest for enlightenment and some form of ascension beyond these limits you live within now, you seek definition that may be understood within the context of this dream. Here we are coming to you in your realm to assist the thoughts you have, to coax you towards a more “lucid dream”. An experience of realizing you are dreaming, yet having enough awareness from your other, awake self to realize you have the power to manipulate the experience to some extent. That the rules are less solid than they seemed. The largest, and most confounding rule you have been following is that of fear. This is the primary rule we aim to assist you in recognizing no longer needs to be perceived as having truth to it. The adjustment of this concept alone in your consciousness alleviates 90% of life’s ills. So let us begin this leg of the journey together now. We will explore the greater essence, the Oneness, and ways in which you, here in the dreamworld, may elevate your consciousness to be more lucid in experience. We thank you for your attention, interest and dedication to knowing your true self in greater and greater ways. Great Divine blessings are yours always, The Oneness within, and a part of you.

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

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

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

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

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

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition:

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

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