YIN YOGA

By Rupa here are two people that need to be mentioned about Yin Yoga: Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. From their work, we know the original sources of Yin Yoga. In his book Yin Yoga- Outline of a quiet practice, Paul Grilley dedicates his work to three teachers: “Dr. Garry Parker, who taught me anatomy, Paulie Zink, who taught me Taoist Yoga, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama, who reminded me of its greater purpose.” Paul makes Yin Yoga known by using modern western medical terms (anatomy) to convey ancient eastern philosophies (Tao and Yoga). Sarah Powers combines the practices of Yoga, Buddhism and Taoism. Her Yoga practice is influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, and alignment-based teachings. In her class, Sarah interweaves these teachings from Chinese medicine with the rich traditions of Yoga and Buddhist mindfulness. We can see that the name of Yin Yoga is new, but the roots are from great ancient civilizations. Yin Yoga derives from Tao, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga. Ø Dao (or  Tao) a  Chinese word means “way, path, route”, or “principle, direction”. The well known text Dao De Jing shows the path on how a human being maintains a harmonic relationship with nature. It is a holistic practice to follow the rhythm of nature. Ø Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the great application from Tao. It has been proven effective in China for thousands of years. The theoretical system of TCM is established in the text Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Medicine (Huangdi Nei Ji). Ø Yoga is a science of Self-realization. In Yin Yoga theory the anatomy and mindfulness meditation have been discussed a lot, but seldom mentioned is Yoga’s “greater purpose”. In the authoritative book of Yoga Bhagavad-gita it is said “Perform your duty and abandon all attachment to success or failure. Such evenness of mind is called Yoga”.

T

The purpose of practicing Yin Yoga is simple: to maintain a happy, wholesome and holistic life for the long term in a natural way. It is a style of yoga that is used to balance the physical body (Yin) and external environment (Yang). The practice focuses on the internal. Rupa Manjari Devi Das (Ivy) 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. Welcome to join Rupa’s 50h Yin Yoga / 200h Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat! For more information, visit www.wishingtreeyoga.ca

“If the Beloved is everywhere, the lover is a veil, But when living itself becomes the friend, lovers disappear.” by Jalaluddin Rumi, 13th Century Sufi Mystic and Poet.

He maintains that, when you “follow your bliss”, you will have a fully enriching life experience. Hippocrates called it Psyche. C.G. Jung called it the fully individuated Self. I call it “mask-less living”, or, in everyday language, “What you s see is what you get.” s llnes e I will finish this article with a w smokin poem that I wrote in 1990 just after frui my late wife, Helen, passed into Spirit: x

Generally, we attract whatever energy we give off. The challenge is to emanate love and the look of love in order to create, generate and sustain loving relationships. When parenting young children it is especially crucial to have lots of “face time” with them and to share with them as much as possible the look of love. Joseph Campbell, the mythologist, in his books, “The Masks of God” and “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”, seems to be alluding to the same archetype that Rumi calls the Beloved.

Why Do We Sabotage Our Intentions?

M

any of us sabotage our own best intentions and not even realizing it, by procrastinating and distractions from the work and essential tasks we need to get done. There are a number of reasons for this. Reasons for Procrastinating Negative Self-talk The first reason is that we may be our own worst enemy and critic. Negative self-talk along the lines of, “That’s way too hard - if you try, you’ll probably just fail anyway,” make us sabotage ourselves. This can start in our childhood years. It might begin with a parent or teacher who never seemed satisfied no matter how hard we tried. Children love to please the adults they look up to. Failure in academic work can make THEM feel like a failure, not that their test or report got a failing grade. This can lead to poor self-esteem and a lack of selfconfidence. Suddenly, even the most ordinary tasks become a dangerous minefield in which any step they take could lead to disaster. That being the case, it is safer and easier to just stand still rather than try to move forward. This paralysis then leads to lost opportunities, stress at work and at home, and damage to many of our relationships. If your uber-critical parent starts to label you a lazy good-for-nothing, procrastinating will turn you into that person. Lack of Motivation Some people attribute procrastination to a lack of motivation. But we do not need to psych ourselves up to go to the beach or eat ice cream. We need no reason to do something fun. We do need a motive to act when things start to get tough, though. One clue that you are sabotaging yourself is if you just can’t get started on a project - even if it is an interesting one you would actually enjoy. Or things are going well, but you suddenly stop when 90% of the task is complete.

How to Stop Procrastinating So how can we defeat these three behaviors that cause us to procrastinate? There are a number of ways, depending on which one we wish to tackle. Negative Self-talk • Recognize you are doing it. • Note whose “voice” you hear when it is happening. One person recognised that it sounded just like her nagging mother. Once she made that connection, she could re-tune her thinking to a different channel, with her own voice. • Accentuate the positive to counter the negative. For everything you find fault with, think of at least three things you do well. Lack of Motivation • Set goals and track your progress towards them. • Look for the fun in every task. • Motivate yourself with a reward at the end of a task. The bigger the task, the better the reward.

ge, what are we brought up to believe age is? When we are young we are told that we have so much to learn, as teenagers we are all over the map and think we know everything, then after your twenties you’re told that you had better take care of yourself as you aren’t getting any younger; after 40 or 50 you’re getting on, then anything after 60 or 70 you are definitely going downhill. If you make it to 80 or 90 you’re just plain old and should be taken care of. We have been trained to believe so many falsehoods. I don’t know about you but , as I mature “in age” I feel the same inside as I did as far back as I can remember and I’m not expecting anything to change. Sure I’ve had a lot of life experiences but I am the same spiritual being that I was born as. It’s the undoing of the untruths that I trusted were true. The more I let go of what someone said I should or shouldn’t be the more I return to my true self. Doing this takes courage, patience, time and a lot of introspection. After all you’ll be leaving the pack so to speak. Do you think the reason why we are so afraid of challenging our parents and peers is because we fear we won’t be loved and accepted, that we might be rejected? I think we should pay more attention to what the children are saying and perhaps we’ll start to see a world with less judgment and with openness. If you are never taught that someone is different because of their skin colour, gender, etc. then we would be so much more accepting and enjoy their beautiful attributes. Inside I feel so much gratitude for choosing, all though a little later in life, to take the inner journey to find myself. I believe that my body is an instrument to be used to discover and experience all I can and do so like that of an innocent child. Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul.

n preparation for an event taking place this month, I took some time to do some reflecting on my own personal journey over the past 10 years or so. Back then, all the elements for a perfect life were in place with my family, my friends and my business. The machine of life was functioning well; it was well polished and offering me great opportunities. But something inside me was hungry for more… and I did not know what that was. Intuitively, I knew something was broken and it needed fixing. By listening to this inner voice that we all have, I started down a path of self-care, that is, looking after myself first and foremost. There are six life arenas that we need to focus on in this process of self-care: Health and Wellness, Family/ Relationships, Finances, Social/Leisure, Career/Work, Personal Development/Spirituality. Start by grading each one of these life arenas on a scale of 0 to 10 with 10 being the best number. Do this today and baseline yourself. As you start to look after each one of these sectors, mark your progress and score yourself in 6, 12 and 18 months down the road. See which arena(s) that you have made the most progress with. And for me this process is ongoing, still to this day. It has too because life is not static as things are always in a constant state of flux. It will not be an easy journey. This I can assure you. But when you start to look after yourself, miracles will gradually show up in your life! Be ready for them!

Mind That Changes Itself Our minds have a vast capacity for healing through images - Mark Wolynn1

O

nce we have determined our objectives, after sensing into our needs and challenges, we can develop a path of healing that is clear, gradual and natural. The mind has the ability to help us heal and of relieving us from the burden from the past. We have the ability to move from negativity to positivity by changing our outlook through what is called an epigenetic intervention – a way to activate our minds, our genes and positively affect our health. “Filling our minds with positive images of wellbeing can produce an epigenetic change, ...which would enable us to physically recover from stressful situations more quickly.” 2

Today, the idea of visualization for healing is very popular, an area that is widely respected. Visualization lowers stress, reduces anxiety, boosts our motivation and helps with various fears. “We see with our brains, not with our eyes.”3 How we “see” things relies on our interpretation, on deeply engrained patterns that makes us see the world through our brain or our mind, in our own unique way. Dr. Doidge says that we can change our brains simply by imagining; this is where hypnosis comes in. I definitely see the effect of visualization when it is used under hypnosis – a light receptive trance where we regain control. In my work, I use hypnosis as a gentle way to empower your goals. Through this wonderful modality we can be visualizing, relaxing into our deeper

self to access our wisdom and our ability to heal. After each session I email you the recording of the hypnosis part of the session, which are pleasant, deeply relaxing and empower your goals. Though not essential, I find that listening to the audios at home after the sessions is helpful. Each time we listen to the recordings we are reactivating gradual shifts towards clarity, deeper perspectives, calmness and a more positive outlook on life. This is achieved through the gentle direction of our attention, embedded in a receptive state. I have seen this with so many clients generating gradual and lasting changes. Lynne Cardinal has offered Stress Management, Resilience and Burnout Prevention workshops in the government and private sectors for over 30 years. She is also a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss.

'Dark Night' or Depression? by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.

A

s Earth dissolves in its ego-driven reality and shifts into the soul body, a global ‘dark night of the soul’ is currently occurring. Many more individuals are awakening. Spiritual emergence often comes through a significant life change or crisis. When we lose those things that we use as identifiers (marriage, career, health, financial wealth), we are often pushed to look within, re-assessing our values and seeking the truth of who we are. The questions that can press upon us are: “What is life?”, "What matters to me?", and “Who am I?” and “Who/ what/where is God?” It’s from this soul-searching that a new sense of self emerges. It’s important to distinguish the dark nights of the soul from depression for they carry some of the same symptoms but have different outcomes. In a 'dark night' journey, people’s experiences can include chaos, despair, disconnection from the outer world, shame, grief, fear, anxiety, aloneness, and insecurity. Depression can also bring sadness, emptiness, diminished interest in outer activities, insomnia, difficulty focusing, and even thoughts of suicide. The distinct difference is that during depression a person can feel worthless and stop caring altogether. Instead, during a 'dark night' there is a pull toward expansion and a desire to know oneself or “figure it out”, and on a deeper level, there is a sense that everything will be okay. It can also abruptly

New Planet, New World

Ian Prattis y new book is the finale in a trilogy “Chronicles of Awakening.” I transport the reader to a faraway planet. Earth in the near future is dying due to Humankind’s damage to the environment. Children are sent via spacecraft to this distant planet to escape Earth and restart Humanity. The book opens with a lyrical and dangerous meeting on a distant planet later this century. The protagonists are from different centuries and cultures. From the 18th century Rising Moon is hurled by shamanic means to Planet Horizon in a nearby galaxy. From the 21st century Catriona gets there from a failing spaceship in an escape craft. Instead of killing one another they choose to be blood sisters and embrace survival, accepting nature as a Matriarch. They join other Earth refugees to form a new, sustainable, caring community – but can they withstand the threat of invaders bringing traits of treachery, power struggles and murder? The clash of cultures, late in the twenty first century, opens this epic novel of pioneers establishing community in a neighboring galaxy. It coincides with the demise of modern civilization on Earth. Four Hopi Sacred Keepers offer their lives in a ceremony to provide renewal on a distant planet that none of them will experience. A jihadist cell on Earth hijacks a spaceship and imperils the lives of the pioneers, who respond with tactical violence to kill them. The starkness of survival prepares a backcloth for distinct love stories. The dark episodes and lyrical passages move the story along with action, fear, resolution, death, rape, bravery, ethical settlements and exile in a futuristic opportunity for humanity.

M

Time, culture, space and consciousness are fused across centuries. This action packed book of intertwining plotlines arc into the epiphany of the final chapter - the end game of a philosophy for the future. The inclusiveness of science combines with Tolstoy’s vision, Pope Francis’ Climate Change Encyclical and not repeating the mistakes of the carbon cabal. The underlying message is from Tolstoy, the ‘Conscience of Humanity.’ He described humanity’s bottom line as the cultivation of love, the mainspring for authentic and responsible living. I do not present this as idealism, rather as down to earth wisdom. That is why I wrote this futuristic novel that takes place in the near future. It is the final bookend of a trilogy – “Chronicles of Awakening.” Redemption is the first book in this trilogy that has Trailing Sky Six Feathers as the second book. The final tome of this trilogy takes characters from the prior two books, placing them in the future on a new planet. I place in the mouth of Dr. Tom Hagen a blistering rant to the UN in 2080 that I would certainly like to give from the future. It is about the willful ignorance displayed by corporate and government cabals invested in the carbon/oil complex, while eco militias murder in the streets and social disorder is a norm. The reader now begins to anticipate and harken to the rip tides of this futuristic novel.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How does one stop the mind?

SRI CHINMOY: Although it can be very difficult to stop the mind, there are quite a few ways to do it. One way is to repeat the Name of God and try to forget oneself inside the repetition of the Name. Or one can repeat a particular mantra, which means sacred word or incantation. When one is repeating a mantra or God’s Name, it should be a continuous flow. If it is “God, God, God,” then inside the repetition itself one has to lose oneself. Then the mind stops. There is also another way. One has to see the mind as a material object. We can take a material object and put it anywhere we want to, or we can throw it the farthest

possible distance according to our strength. So either we can grab the mind like a material object and throw it into the distance, or we can put the mind wherever we want to. If a mischievous child is bothering us, we can take the child into a corner, scold him and keep him there. One can do that to the mind as well. A third way is to totally forget about the existence of the mind. Ignore the mind and feel oneself only as the heart. We can transform the mind by bringing the divinity of the heart to the fore. It is not enough to say, “I have a heart.” One must say, “I am the heart, I am the heart.” So try to bring the heart forward and illumine the mind with the light of the heart. Then the qualities of the heart will permeate the entire being, and automatically the mind will stop. There are many more ways, but these three ways are quite enough for any individual, and one can choose any of the three in order to stop the mind.

Plant Power! Staying Healthy This Winter

recently read an article on-line about a combination of plants that can has so many antibacterial properties that it would knock out any infection. The first ingredient is apple cider vinegar (ACV). We love this ingredient at home because it is amazing for skin care. Along with keeping acne-prone skin clear of infection, it also restores the acid mantle to the skin which helps prevent infection. You can also take it internally to boost metabolism and aid digestion. Garlic and onion are also in the mix: immune boosters, highly antibacterial and is great for the heart. Chili peppers! Vitamin C and great antibacterial and analgesic properties. Ginger root is well known for colds and flu because of its anti-viral properties. This little gem is also great as an anti-inflammatory and yet another plant great to help digestive issues and nausea. Horseradish is great for clearing sinus infections, as well as

antibiotic properties making it another health superstar. Turmeric also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and also reported to be helpful with inflammatory conditions (ie joints) and heart health. Honey is naturally antibacterial-we use it at home on skin treatments. It is a humectant (meaning it draws moisture to the skin), unlike a drying clay mask. It is also an antioxidant, helping to keep the body healthy. The actual recipe is below in abbreviated form. For full details, http://diystratosphere.com/powerfulnatural-antibiotic-kills-infection-body/ 3 cups ACV 1/4 cup chopped garlic 1/4 cup chopped onion 2 fresh chili peppers 1/4 cup  grated ginger 2 teaspoons grated horseradish 2 teaspoons turmeric 3 teaspoons honey Put all ingredients in mason jar, topping up with the ACV (1/3 mix should be ACV). Close well and shake. Keep in a cool and dry place for 2 weeks. Shake well several times a day, then strain the liquid through a plastic strain. For better results put a gauze over it. Squeeze well so the whole juice comes out. Store in fridge. For maximum potency, let infuse 6 weeks. Take one or two tablespoons a few times a day as needed.

PATHWORK: Nurturing Our Connection with the Life Force by Madeline Dietrich

T

he idea of an indwelling life force that connects us to spirit is an appealing concept for people. It’s especially attractive for those who are on a spiritual search and who want to live with greater vitality and fulfillment. And yet making contact with the life force can feel abstract and intangible. What is this thing we call the “life force” and how can we nurture our connection with it? Pathwork Lecture 126 offers guidance about the nature of the life force and pre-requisites for making connection with it. The lecture offers that there is no difference between contact with spirit or “God” and contact with the life force. Every spiritual framework requires our on-going growth and development in order to open to the world of spirit. The particular development required to contact the life force is the capacity to step out of the ego mind and its preoccupation with fears and insecurities as well as its attachment to appearances values rather than being in the truth of reality.

For more information, contact Jean: jeanmillar21@gmail.com or 613-829-1254

This lecture explores how the willingness and courage to be in the truth of the present moment, no matter what that truth might look like, is the same as contact with the life force. It also speaks to bridging the apparent duality between surrender of one’s will to spirit and a compatible stance regarding mature self-responsibility. On Wednesday, November 9th at Saint Paul University, Ottawa Pathwork will host an evening presentation and discussion on the topic of making contact with the life force. In preparation you are invited to read Lecture 126 which can be accessed at www.pathwork.org. The evening will be facilitated by Madeline Dietrich M.A. Madeline is a Pathwork Helper, a Somatic Therapist, and workshop facilitator.

Why Did I Choose Hypnosis As a Career? by Luke Michael Howard Ph.d

I

e

’m often asked by people “How did you get into hypnosis? What’s the deal with it? Why did you choose hypnosis?” And I think really, hypnosis chose me as a profession and almost an obsession if you will. I guess it’s an origin story. When I was very, very young, I literally had every problem you could imagine. I was obese. I was agoraphobic. I had a horrible relationship with my parents. I was bullied in school. I had asthma, as well, and nearly died from that. I was pretty much a train wreck and I’d gone through all forms of therapy myself as a youngster, family therapy, child therapy and really nothing worked. I was still very, very depressed and still very, very anxious. And in fact, some people know this story, I actually tried to kill myself twice. As a teenager, it was like when I was 15 or 16, I was really quite hopeless, to be honest with you. I always knew that I had stuff inside to give, more to give, but I was just in this hopeless place of depression and feeling tremendously lost and misunderstood. The weird thing was in the UK, in England where I am from, in the 90s, we had a show called the Hypnotic World of Paul McKenna. Some of you may have heard of that show, may have in fact heard of Paul McKenna, he’s very famous.

I’d watch this show every Monday night for about five years. It was a traditional hypnosis show where, you know, stage hypnosis if you will making people come up on the stage and getting them to do silly things like bark like a cat or meow like a dog. I watched every week and because it was on TV, as a youngster, I thought this stuff must be real, it must work. One Sunday, I was rifling through the News of the World newspaper in England. The back of the newspaper there was an ad for an audio tape. This is how long ago, it was not a DVD, not a CD, not an MP3, but an audio cassette. It was called Supreme Self-Confidence by Paul McKenna. I remember ordering it and it was like 12 pounds, or 24, 25 dollars. I had to write a check to send it away, so I got my older sister to write me a check. I gave her the money that I had from Christmas or birthdays to pay for it and it said it would take up to 21 days to come. So it made me really eagerly waiting for that audio cassette, and go to my letter box every day to see if it came in. It just roar anticipation because this had to work, because I was running out of time. Like I said, I’d been in the hospital. I’d tried to kill myself with overdoses and so forth, it’s pretty dire. I remember this tape came through and it was 22 minutes side A and it was 22 minutes side B. The recommendation was to listen to it for 21 days non-stop. I remember to listen to it every day and it’s quite sad to say but it’s the first time that I’d actually had people say nice things to me. The suggestions on the confidence CD was actually saying nice things. I religiously listened to it every single day and I totally had the expectation

“I walked out 25lbs Lighter!” Kate had been over weight for the majority of her life- nearly 27 YEARS! She had tried every type of Weight Loss Gimmick, Diets, Supplements, Gym Memberships even Personal Trainers but nothing worked, until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promised I would do a testimonial for you. Here it is: The hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I lost 25lbs I have not eaten at timmies...I have had NO DESIRE TOO!!! It really has changed my life!” Check out more testimonials at: www.lukenosis.com you can contact Dr. Luke at 613-878-5874 to arrange an appointment.


and believe that it would work, because I had no out. I had no other course of action. It was essentially this or death. That’s how bad it was. This silly little tape that cost me 12 pounds, 24 dollars that was 44 minutes in length, succeeded where family therapy, group therapy, child therapy, counseling, well all these traditional methods had failed me and this silly, little old generic tape that many people bought, it wasn’t specialized to me, it changed my life. Of course, I’ve had ups and downs since then, I’m a human being, we all do. But that silly, little audio tape saved my life and it put me on a course of action to learn as much as I could about hypnosis. So I’m like this silly, generic audio tape, which is one size fits all, worked on me. What happen if I really learned from the masters how powerful this was, and it could customize it to people? So, then I spent the next 20 years, from age 17 until to my age now, 47, learning hypnosis, studying hypnosis, performing on stage, working with clients, performing on the street to really master this and I still master it every day. I’m still studying it every day. It’s fascinating and there’s always new discoveries and so forth like that. But that’s really my origin story and how I got into this and why it’s really, really important to me.

o you work with the public? Are you a practitioner? Do you feel the surroundings, news or people have an effect on you? At times and especially during fall, we may feel more vulnerable, drained, tired, irritated or impatient. Some days more than other, I may feel affected by something I have picked up around or people. It is an ongoing task to stay open, remain present, feel empathy and at the same time, not accumulate energies that not belonging to us. Meditation, taking a walk, exercise, wearing protective jewellery, using the many techniques for protection, taking a bath after work are all part of recentring suggestions. In addition, using vibrational healing essences is really a big help. A particular tree essence was born at the request of consultants and healers with the purpose of Protection and Cleansing because they felt they needed something additional to assist. Therapist & Healer essence was created and has proven itself to be very useful to many. This essence offers protection and helps clear unwanted energies we may have picked up. The THERAPIST & HEALER essence may be taken orally as needed and also added to baths, creams and sprays. Use also, AURA CLEANSING SPRAY for external use.

Discover the Secrets of the Universe — Within Yourself and Beyond!

D

o you remember when you were little looking at the stars at night and wondering who lived there? What did they do? Could they see us? What did they think about us and how we lived? You had many questions about the universe.  Soul communication is soul-to-soul communication. This might seem like stating the obvious, but this very simple statement has many layers of meaning. How do you do this kind of communication? What is the significance of soul communication? What are the benefits?  There is a very simple process to open your soul communication ability. This process helps you open your soul communication so you can see, hear, or sense the message. With practice, it is possible to develop great ability to communicate with the Soul World, to access the secrets, wisdom, knowledge, and practical techniques that can transform every aspect of your life.

Not only can you communicate with the Universe, you can communicate with your own soul, to learn about your past lives, how they influence your current life and what the possibilities are for your future lives. When you do this, you will discover the universe within. The benefits of soul communication are also very pragmatic. You can receive guidance regarding business, finance, studying for school exams, relationships, your health on all levels, your soul journey, and much more. One of the greatest benefits is that guidance is so direct and clear. Usually, within minutes, you can receive wonderful guidance for situations that otherwise could have taken hours, days, or even months to resolve.

Post Operative Recovery and Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac

S

urgery is a powerful tool in the modern medical tool kit and is used today in a wide range of applications. Surgery for musculoskeletal conditions is called orthopedic surgery, and is used to treat musculoskeletal trauma, degenerative diseases, sports injuries, infections, tumours, and congenital disorders (disorders we are born with). This includes surgeries such as hip or knee replacement, spinal surgery or fusion, carpal tunnel release, or repair of tendons, ligaments, or cartilage. However, there are many, many other surgeries that are performed for a variety of reasons, such as to help relieve or prevent pain, to reduce a symptom, to improve some body function, or to diagnose conditions. With surgery comes certain post-operative side effects and risks. Some of the major concerns with surgery is dealing with post-surgery pain and the side effects of pain medications, as well as making a complete recovery from surgery and regaining our former mobility and functions. Doctors rely on powerful medications to relieve pain during and immediately after surgery, including opioids and anesthesia. Opioid pain medications are known to cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, pruritis (itch or a sensation that makes a person want to scratch), constipation, and sleepiness, symptoms which can cause difficulty in the recovery and interfere with our day-to-day life. Use of opioids and their side effects may also delay post-operative recovery. Acupuncture is an excellent option for post-operative recovery and has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of both post-operative pain and the side effects of opioid medications. Acupuncture is probably best known for the treatment of pain and it is indeed very effective for relieving pain and reducing the need for pain medications. Pain limits your ability to breathe deeply, cough, walk and perform the activities necessary for a speedy recovery, and acupuncture can help to manage the pain so that recovery can happen more quickly. Acupuncture can also treat the side effects of pain medications including dizziness, upset stomach or nausea, loss of appetite, pruritis (itching sensation), urinary incontinence, and digestive problems, making it an effective option for post-operative recovery. Acupuncture can also help with the body’s recovery following surgery. While surgical techniques have come a long way, surgery still remains a type of trauma that the body must recover and heal from afterwards. Acupuncture helps to boost the immune system and

to restore proper functioning to the body, and in postoperative care can help the body to recover and regain health more quickly. Acupuncture can also help with inflammation, decrease swelling and improve mobility and range of motion after surgery. This is important to recovery in order for a person to regain their full abilities and have full use of the body in the months down the road from surgery. Acupuncture may also help reduce adhesion formation and reduce scarring and scar tissue as the body heals from surgery. Research shows that acupuncture can indeed be very effective for post-operative recovery when surgery is followed by a series of acupuncture treatments, and it can also be beneficial to perform acupuncture a day or two before surgery. This ensures that the body is in a healthy state going into surgery in order to ensure a complete and healthy recovery.

Michèle C. St.Amour & Chakaura Institute of S.O.U.L.

by Patricia Waldygo ©November 2016 eeting Michèle Cleveland St.Amour for the first time brings to mind the deli scene from When Harry Met Sally and its famous line: “I’ll have what she’s having.” It’s not hard to imagine people thinking this when they encounter Michèle. With her dragon-like eyes that shift from black to gold, her joie de vivre, and a knack for seeing the humour in life, Michèle manifests the vibrant life force of her teachings. We all embody our choices in life, whether good or bad—we are the sum total of our decisions about spirituality, diet, ethics, and more. By this measure, Michèle St.Amour is obviously doing something right.

Michèle C. St.Amour, Founder & Director of Chakaura™ Institute of Soul

20

Aboriginal ceremony with Michèle, retreat 2016 In her early thirties, Michèle went through a spiritual awakening often referred to as the “dark night of the soul.” Her many years of physical, mental and emotional healing forced her to delve deeply into her inner world, unconventional experiences, and states of being. Similar to the paths of other mystics and seekers, her quest enabled her to understand the esoteric meaning of our human journey. Michèle’s novel Chakaura: Awakening the Muse parallels her own awakening and tells the story of a young woman’s daredevil attitude when faced with altered realities and the moment of enlightenment that changed her forever. (Publication date: December 2016)

November 2016

Even her married surname, St.Amour, serendipitously coincides with her philosophy and teachings. The name of the organization she founded in 2007— Chakaura™ Institute of S.O.U.L. (System of Universal Love)—appeared in her mind’s eye one day. Michèle immediately recognized its wisdom, because “everything I teach centres on directing love energy, the most powerful force in the universe.” Michèle focuses on the science behind spirituality, approaching self-transformation from the logical, as well as the intuitive, side. Though not anchored in any

belief system, she combines teachings from the wisdom traditions of many cultures, going back to the Essenes and the ancient Egyptians. “When these original pure teachings dispersed all over the world,” Michèle says, “each culture received a portion of them—similar to one bead of a necklace. The Chakaura practices empower students to join these beads and clasp them into a circular necklace of knowledge, like the uroboros.” Deriving some of her teachings from her Aboriginal elders, Michèle believes that maintaining good health is a continual process of staying strong spiritually, mentally and physically. We must remain in harmony with ourselves, other people, our natural environment and our Creator. Of all the techniques she teaches, “grounding” is the most crucial for health. And taking responsibility for our choices starts us on the path. Michèle lives simply in a solar-powered house in the mountains, growing a good amount of her own food and implementing a sustainable lifestyle as much as possible in our modern world. She also gathers wild herbs and always plants a wide selection in her garden for various medicinal remedies, in keeping with her Native heritage. “Knowledge often presents itself in such a natural way, as with totems,” Michèle says, “so people have to develop awareness and pay attention to every word and everything they encounter, for that is how the spirits of all things communicate and guide us.”


Although Chakaura Institute has both short-term and long-term programs, the practices are not a “quick fix” that one can do over a weekend. They require dedication and a commitment of time and energy, so that students can integrate the teachings into the deepest levels of the self. Many other spiritual systems deal with the first three layers of the aura and the first three (lowest) chakras. The Chakaura practices start with these but continue through all twelve layers of the aura and include every chakra, putting students on a path to becoming “masters.”

Chakaura clinic

“People don’t realize that the energy field I call the Chakaura™ is a living, breathing organism,” Michèle says. “The chakras and the aura are not separate. One is simply the result and the emanation of the other, hence Chakaura™: chakra, aura.”

Dedicated to a life of service, Michèle began teaching alternative holistic health techniques 16 years ago. She is a certified Naturopathic-Energy Practitioner© and educator, and she provides workshops, retreats, and seminars in both French and English to those guided to her. The centre offers Chakaura Structural Balancing and Energy Balancing Therapy and Training, along with Self-Discovery Programs. Therapeutic sessions and consultations, aromatherapy and massage therapy are available at the Chakaura Health Clinic. When requested, Michèle will also travel to other locations to offer programs and seminars.

She further explains, “The basis of our energy healing teachings at the Chakaura™ Institute is the principle that all psychological and spiritual processes also have negative by-products, much as our biological functions do. We must eliminate unnecessary substances for spiritual health and vitality to be present. If not, they create emotional, mental, or spiritual blockages that our society calls ‘stress’—another psychological process with proven biological ramifications that are often deadly. A blockage is something that doesn’t move and that constricts the flow of energy or vital life force. This follows the law of vibration: Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates. Matter is simply an energy particle vibrating at a very low frequency, creating the illusion of solidity. This alone proves that all of man’s experiences have by-products, for the frequency of vibration defines every aspect of man.”

Cultivating Contact with Refined Worlds of Light by Regiena Heringa

T

here is upon our good planet a tremendous movement of spiritual energy which is increasingly evident in our societies and world communities. Although the shadow falls deeply, it is fading as the Light of sacredness amplifies. Because of our dedication to the Divine Spirit, we are blossoming into an insightful and intelligence people. We are becoming Good-ness and God-ness. Through our expansion of consciousness and heart, we demonstrate our readiness to participate in splendid intergalactic and trans-dimensional communities of significant and holy design. To cultivate contact with these refined worlds, we must first ensure that we are firmly anchored in the radiance of the Creator by replacing the expression of ego with the qualities of soul. Here we illustrate that we are reliable and dependable spiritual citizens. With contact we must also understand that the language employed is refined and expansive, founded on open minds and hearts and noble intention. Regiena Heringa, an emissary of Love and Light, will be visiting OSPC on Sunday, November 6th to bring those seeking, the message of how to Enter Sacredness and Light. She will also be offering a workshop on Saturday, November 19th, helping those ready to Cultivate Contact with Refined Worlds of Light. The aim of Regiena’s workshop is to initiate a harmonious and firm field of love and expanded consciousness with the group, after participants have spent a few moments in inner reflection to clarify their intention. This energy field, established through guided meditation, invites beings from Light worlds and serves as a continual

platform for contact throughout the workshop. To facilitate contact, participants will familiarize themselves with the projection of their awareness into other places and understand, through sensing, the characteristics of the unbounded mind. Time will also be spent on the nature of the language used and received in contact. Participants will leave the workshop with techniques on how to establish and maintain inner divine grounding and how to further cultivate spiritual contact with these beings and communities of refined worlds of Light. If this calls to you, come meet Regiena at our Sunday morning service on Nov. 6th. For more information about OSPC, the workshop, and how to register, visit us at www.ottawaspiritualpathways.com or contact us at info@ottawaspiritualpathways.com Regiena Heringa (www.nextagemission.com) has been a teacher, counsellor and messenger of spiritual advancement for many years, working in English and in French, in Canada and abroad. Through workshops, private sessions and transmission of information from higher realms, she helps truth-seeking individuals to feel, explore and live the inner realm of the Divine, to live this spiritual centring in daily life and to tune into communities of beings of refined and insightful consciousness who vibrate at exquisite levels of Light.

The Value of Energetically Clearing Your Home Especially Before Selling It!

A

ll homes have energy signatures, like any living thing. You know this because upon entering a home, it feels “right” or “there was just something that we didn’t like about that place”! When selling a home, it is always a good idea to have a “professional in this field” come and do an energetic clearing to help encourage the sale. Just like you would have a home cleaner come in and clean the home from top to bottom; this is the exact same thing - except on an energetic level.

releasing that which needs to be released. This may mean journeying into your childhood, the cellular level, other lifetimes/dimensions or speaking with deceased loves ones, angels, guides. Each session is absolutely unique and a deeply sacred ceremony. I never know where your soul will guide us. Reiki is my life’s passion and it is my joy and honour to be a spiritual midwife for those seeking to help themselves. If you are struggling with an issue, feeling overwhelmed or would simply like to relax and rebalance, I am here for you. Hyacinth Crystal Reiki is my healing practice.

Wishingtree Yoga

D Imagine not bathing for the duration of living in a home. Now imagine that that home is 30 years old. All that stagnant energy is all around that home, imbibing everything contained within it -including the people! The home’s energy field holds the energetic imprints of every argument, happiness and sadness that has ever occurred in the house and its property. Remember that the property, upon which the house was built, has been there for millions of years. What has that land experienced, witnessed and held on to until someone comes along to help clear it? The answer is a whole lot. Ideally, a home should be cleared weekly. When selling a home, it is imperative to help cleanse the energetics because people are increasingly more conscious of, and sensitive to energies. Otherwise, a home could linger on the market for months or attract offers well below the asking price; if a person feels the weight and repressed energies within that house. A home is a person’s sacred space. If your home does not feel good or you are planning on selling and would like some help, please contact me and we can discuss your particular situation. My name is Jazz (Jacinthe) and I am a Holographic Usui Reiki Master Teacher Trainer. Holographic means I tap into the client’s energy field, which is a codex of all that has ever happened to us, and sense where the imbalances are and help the body remember its original blueprint for health and wholeness.

oes savasana ever feel like the most difficult pose? Do you fear sitting still more than you fear headstand? These statements were true for me, and I believe them to be true for many Western practitioners of yoga. When I first began my yoga journey, the only practice I enjoyed was the 112 degree Fahrenheit , hour and a half Bikram class. Gradually I began to enjoy vinyasa and flow classes, but still had to be in constant motion during my practice. I was consumed by dominant energy. I was completely out of balance when I walked into Wishingtree Yoga, where I would eventually begin my 200 hour Traditional Hatha Yoga teacher training. My instructor Rupa approached her practice as a meditation in motion. She encouraged me to watch my breath and try closing my eyes during class. Next I was asked to come to a yin yoga class on a regular basis. After a few weeks, holding yin poses for three to five minutes no longer felt like a challenge. It was only then that she began to slowly introduce more formal methods of mediation. By approaching meditation in this manner, I was able to stay open and receptive to what I was learning. I was surprised by how many ways there are to practice formal meditation, and even more surprised to find some that I enjoy. The asana practice is only a fraction of what yoga has to offer. This journey has opened up an entirely different side of yoga to me.  I now practice 20 minutes of formal meditation almost every morning. It has not only improved my knowledge and understanding of yoga, but has also improved my focus and disposition in daily life. I find myself liking all styles of yoga, not only the power styles of my past. I realize that without meditation, one cannot begin to understand the philosophy of yoga and the true nature of self.  Laura J. Denning

Organic Bedding

Why would one want an organic mattress and sheets? Besides preserving our soil and protecting farm workers and their communities from toxic chemicals, organic bedding has a lovely, clean energy that is delicious to sleep on and restorative to one’s health. A few years ago I started having interrupted sleeps, finding myself up at all hours of the night and then chronically tired during the day. I decided to look into an organic mattress after having many nourishing nights on one at my sister’s home. At the Obasan store south off Merivale, I found myself lying on beds while talking about my sleeping style and learning about their products. They are engineered in layers of organic cotton, wool and rubber to suit each individual and warrantied for 20 years. One can see the neat and clean manufacturing process through windows at the back of the showroom, wonderful local jobs! Several weeks after my mattress was delivered and installed, our manager Ellie asked how I liked my bed. I realized that I had significantly fewer sleepless nights, about one a week instead of 3 or 4 and my energy was better. Pleased with my investment, I can recommend it whole-heartedly. Dr. Katherine Willow N.D. runs the Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre ½ hour NW of Ottawa. Sign up for our monthly newsletter at ecowellness.com to learn about programs and events.

How To Eat Intuitively For Optimum Health By Ann Jarvis of The Nourished Soul

T

hese days we’re inundated with so many opinions, judgments and moralistic bents on what to eat and how to eat, it’s difficult to know which direction to go in. We’re told that vegetarianism is the gold standard of nutrition. We’re told that the Mediterranean diet holds the key to longevity, so that’s how we should eat. And now the Paleo diet has taken the nutrition world by storm. So, which one works best for you? If you were to make an intellectual decision it would be easy to pick a camp and dive in. But that might not be what’s best for your body. What to do…what to do! Here’s a thought: Why not take an Intuitive Approach to your diet and forget all of the noise. But how do we do that? The good news is you don’t have to be Sylvia Browne in order to intuit the best way for you to nourish yourself. Here’s How You Can Begin Intuitive Eating Today: 1. Move your mindset from wanting to look good to wanting to feel good. This is actually a gamechanger. When you shift your mindset from one of superficiality to a deeper framework of incredible, vibrant health, your choices naturally change.  And it’s easier to stay the course if health is the goal. Finally, the best part of this shift in mindset is when you feel good, you look even better 2. Leave the morality out of your food choices. I’ve talked about this before. This is one of the most perplexing choices I’ve seen. We’re the only species on the planet that thinks that we can eat according to a moral code rather than a biological imperative. No other animal on this planet does this. Why? Because they eat what their species was designed to eat in order to optimize their health and longevity. It’s called survival of the fittest.

3. Never go on another diet again. I’m going to say it. Dieting is nothing but insanity. Deprivation never, and I repeat, NEVER works. Our bodies instantly begin storing fat (to prepare for the famine) and that completely defeats the purpose of going on a diet. When you leave out the crappy food and, again, focus on feeling great, than dieting has no place in your world. It never did. 4. Look to your ancestry. Are you Italian? Scottish? Indian? Asian? Look to your ancestry and you’ll find the closest fit to the most biologically appropriate diet for you. 5. Remember what you loved as a kid. Okay, the healthy stuff! Not the ding dongs or powdered donuts (even though they were pure awesome!). What, of the healthy foods, did you love? What did you go back for during big feasts and celebrations? Your body still wants those foods. 6. Honor your hunger. You’re hungry because your cells are requiring nutrients in order to keep you running well. Feed yourself when you’re hungry. Eat with gusto. Eat without distraction. Enjoy every bite. 7. Honour your fullness. Decide to not eat when you’re full. Something else is going on. You’re either bored or sad or something. But if you’re full, don’t add any stress to your body by shoving more food in it. At the same time, figure out what it is you really need in that moment and honor it. Our bodies want to run well and be healthy and thrive. When we listen to them and honour them, they’ll do just that. Let go of any social, cultural or moralistic conditioning and eat the foods that your body wants. Be present while you eat and love every bite.

17 MD Teaching Topics for Medical Dentistry Seminars by Dr Greenacre and team

1. Medical Dentistry Oral health is critical to total health. I believe there over 100 medical illnesses that have an oral connection. Either Trigeminal nerve related or structurally or from oral organisms. 2. Misguided Deglutition (a bad swallow). Humans have largely lost good swallow function the tongue is the most I highly innervated muscle and thus the most important muscle in the human body. The tongue hyoid complex is an organ system. 3. Maxillary Dysmorphogenesis Palates and noses are getting more narrow. This in turn causes maxilla mandibular dysfunction and displacement. 4. Mandibular Displacement Jaw bones and hyoid bones are getting displaced due to MD 2 and MD 3. 5. Myoneurological Dysfunction Poor growth and function of MD 234 leads to muscle trigger points and pain and nerve impingements that cause referred pain and a limited range of motion and function of the neck and the jaws. 6. Microbial Diseases Tooth and gum infections cause a multitude of whole body illnesses or cause inflammation that spreads through out the body there at least 13 to 15 dangerous organisms in the mouth out of 400 to 500 different organisms in the mouth and now there about 15 areas of research looking at remote bodily connections to dentistry. 7. Miserable Diets (make miserable people) Our diets are generally a mess. We must get back to the Garden Of Eden concept of more fruits and veggies and seeds in our diet. 8. Mineral deficiencies More and more experts are recognizing trace mineral deficiencies . Google Dr David Brownstein world class thyroid expert and his opinion supports this fact of life. 9. Movement Disorders Orthodontists like Dr Brendan Stack have pioneered helping in treating Tourettes and MS. Google tmjstack. com and look at his movement disorder patients. 10 Mental Distress and Mood Disorders MD 1 through 5 can cause dysfunctiuon of the autonomic and the central nervous system because the trigeminal nerve is strongly affected by maxillomandibular dysfunction 11 Metabolic Diseases diseases like diabetes have a gum disease connection. Many others are being researched for the connection through mouth disease generated inflammation.

We need to reunite medicine dentistry and psychology and all physical medicine and energetic medicine practitioners to study the body as a whole We are all on one team but we do not communicate in integrative medicine conferences as much as we should. The human being is an energetic emotional physical continuum and we have to recognize this before we can seek human peace harmony and all pursue higher purposes as a team. OUR DESTINY is to co-create with God and with each other. 17 Mankind’s Dilemma We don’t get it right very often. We are often stubborn emotional failures vs the intellectual/emotional/ energetic inventive successes that is our potential Medical Dentistry is about integration and reuniting Medicine and dentistry in collaboration for the betterment of all their mutual patients.

Quantum-Touch® Therapy:

Healing in a Time of Great Change Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach

L

And my work. I’ve always believed that my handson healing modality, Quantum-Touch Therapy was part of the new way to be well. I’ve really considered that the existing medical model was quite outdated, and that we would begin to find more peaceful, and gentle ways to be well, ways in which our innate ability of our bodies to heal themselves would be the new way to wellness. And as I live my life, and grow older, and more well, healthier and happier and more fit and strong, I feel that I have some confirmation of this opinion.

ife, as we have known it has been changing for some time. Many of us are aware of the changes, but most people are only vaguely conscious that change is happening and for those who do feel differences in their day to day lives, there is not the profound awareness as there In Ottawa area serving Ontario & is for those who seem to be in the Western Quebec forefront of that change, and are being guided, (maybe pushed is a AILEEN MCKENNA better word), but whatever, we know that where we are living within our Certified Quantum-Touch® Practitioner own sphere is on the cutting age of Certified Quantum-Touch® Instructor Associate Polarity Practitioner life as it will be in the future. We Certified Aromatherapist are the change agents, and we have been out here doing our new thing, AILEEN’S OASIS for the new world for some years. 613-228-2272 Most of us are aware of the context 613-795-3751 of our work, but whether or not we aileen@aileensoasis.com are aware, we have been compelled aileen.mckenna66@gmail.com to move into this new phase of life www.aileensoasis.com from whatever our life was before, www.quantumtouch.com and we are finding a totally new way to be, a new feeling about what we call work, and we have developed a beautiful sense of the perfection of how change has been orchestrated around us, and in us, without us truly knowing what has been happening. I’ve read the works of Joanna Macy, Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives whose work has embraced the changes on the planet and the need for us to change in the way we relate to the planet. She has inspired me to be aware, to view the planet as a living being, and to view everyother being on this planet as precious and unique individuals with our own special gifts that we have brought to the planet to help with the ‘Great Turning’. I’ve read the works of Peter Russell who has reflected upon how everything has speeded up and that it is necessary for us to look around us and to be cognisant of how time is moving faster and everything around us is as well. Previously, I’ve offered some of the works of Greg Braden, who has , in the first of his books, really highlighted all the various changes, particularly changes on the physical planet, but also in terms of the wars, the uprisings in different countries around the world, the weather systems, the ways in which the planet is changing and how much all of society is changing as well.

How To Cope In Uncertain Times

Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, OM, psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher, healer

N

o one would question that these are challenging times. Weather extremes, financial and political uncertainty and global upheaval are at the forefront of the news each day. With so much turmoil being presented to us, how do we stay, not only sane, but feeling safe, grounded and supported? At this 3rd dimensional level it is hard to feel safe if you are the least bit aware of the news, be it mainstream or alternative (which I support.) I used to pride myself in never watching the news thinking it would only depress me and there was nothing I personally could do anyway, so what was the point. I now feel a responsibility to be informed of what I believe truly to be happening. And this will not be coming from CNN or any other major network news. If you were to pick one alternative site to check each day, I suggest beforeitsnews.com. This will open your eyes and give you lots to think about. So we have become aware of what is truly happening in our country, the U.S. and the world, now what? What can we do? First and foremost do not go into fear. Fear is a low vibration that robs you of your energy, your spiritual connection and your ability to think clearly and take positive action. What is required is trust and faith in your connection to your higher self, determination and courage. We are heading into more trying times than we have experienced here in Canada and we need to do so with our eyes wide open. Do not just believe all that you hear or read. Do not be lazy. Check it out for yourself. I am not writing to be a harbinger of bad news, merely to ask you to dig a little deeper. Check out anonhq.com, zerohedge.com and beforeitsnews.com. Make up your own mind. To stay calm and balanced meditate, pray, contemplate, walk in nature--- in other words, lots of nurturing quiet time for yourself to balance out the worldly stress . It is the inner life you develop that will get you through this. That and a group of like minded souls who love and support each other to grow more aware, awake and attuned to their higher guidance. Now back to my normal stuff. I still delight in offering demo sessions on the wonderful TrinFinity8 energy balancing, rejuvenation, restoration and spiritual enhancement system. I also highly recommend you read Kathy Forti’s book Fractals of God to hear first hand how a near death experience introduced her to her new geeky guides that presented this new healing system for the future. My partner, Doug Henderson and

Abundant Life Coach Psycho-Spiritual Counsellor Wedding Officiant 2belight1@gmail.com www.sherryharriscounselling.org 613-236-8852 Insurance Receipts Available I are having incredible results with the TrinFinity8 and have many testimonials to share. I continue to offer counselling for all issues and I encourage all to try inner child healing sessions. Generally it takes about 5 sessions to set up communication and connection with your inner child, your subconscious, your emotional body. Once you do and start working with the wounded child within, you will be amazed at how quickly your disruptive emotional patterns fall away. I personally used this 25 years ago to do some major healing on lack of self-love, insecurity and anger issues I had been carrying since childhood. I still use it when an emotional issue comes up that takes my normally healthy, strong, balanced self by surprise. It is an invaluable tool that I will use for the rest of my life and would love to teach you to use it also and make it your go-to when emotional issues surprise you. I also specialize in spiritual counselling helping you to connect to your God within, your higher self. In these sessions you learn to live by your higher guidance, your heart and your divine alignment. Finding your life mission is part of this process and learning to live guided by faith not fear is a major goal to be gained in this work. My hobby is being a wedding officiant. If you are interested in a warm, loving, simple and beautiful ceremony let’s connect and see if we can create the perfect ceremony for you. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW.

The Significance of Silence W

e usually equate mediation with talking. It’s better for a separating couple to sit down together with a professional mediator and talk through their issues, we say, rather than battle it out in court. A famous book about mediators is called When Talk Works. A best-selling T-shirt in the mediation field says, “Just Talk To Me.” And yet sometimes mediation is not about talking. It’s about silence, about not talking. One of my favourite mediators, Ken Cloke, writes about silence in his book Mediating Dangerously. Silence in mediation can mean many things, he says. It can indicate agreement with the other disputant, or anger with that person. It can suggest stubborn determination or thoughtful reflection. It can mean someone’s feelings have been hurt, or it can suggest quiet contentment. It can be an indication that a verbal eruption is about to take place, or it can mean someone is on the cusp of transformation. “There are, in other words,” says Cloke, “creative and destructive, positive and negative forms of silence. As mediators, our role is to deepen the creative and diminish the destructive silences.” Many years ago a client sat through a 90-minute mediation session with her estranged husband without saying a word. After the first ten minutes or so, I gently asked her what her silence was about. She wiped away a tear from her eyes and just shook her head as if to say that she couldn’t yet talk. “Would you like to reschedule this session to a better time?” I asked. She shook her head vehemently no. I had no idea what she was experiencing, but I sensed that she needed to do this. “Do you want to just sit here like this?” She nodded her head firmly. And so the three of us sat in silence for the rest of the session. Her husband made a few futile attempts at moving the session along verbally, but then seemed to accept that something important was happening, though he didn’t yet know what. At the end of the session, I invited them both to reflect before we met again on what the wife’s silence had been about, what she was trying to convey to her husband that she couldn’t put into words. The couple told me in their next session that later that same day they were able to have one of their most important conversations ever, and reached a breakthrough in their communication that led quickly to settlement. “I just needed him to understand how deeply his decision to leave me had affected me,” the wife said, “and I had given up trying to reach him with my words.”

Roche 33 Somerset Street West, Ottawa, ON K2P 0H3 email: evitar@sympatico.ca

613. 237.7335 A mediation colleague once told me another story about the power of silence. In a particularly contentious mediation, after an hour of angry exchanges between the parties, she suggested that they all take a few minutes, “just to let things be.” She then sat with them in supportive silence while they experienced a deep stillness that was in marked contrast to their earlier verbal jousting. Afterwards, the parties seemed to have experienced a major shift. One person offered an apology, and the other person then moved closer to him. They then proceeded to talk with each other in a different way and were able to move towards resolution. “It was just about letting things settle,” says my colleague “and allowing the space for a new perspective to emerge.” Silence can, indeed, be golden. Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyermediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa law school, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

The Premier Yoga Instructor of Ottawa

by Sonja Muller State your full name: Brittany Bryden. How long have you been teaching yoga? Four years. Did you get certified? Yes I got certified in Toronto at the Downward Dog Yoga Centre. It was a 250 hours training. Do you have CPR? Yes I do. How often do you have to get recertified? For yoga there is no requirements as part of the Alliance, it’s the Alliance training. But for me personally, I try and get in as many workshops as I can whenever I have time. So this year I did a whole bunch of workshops in Toronto, again, trying to go back and forth, squeezing in as many as you can. This year is going to be busy. Can you tell me how much a yoga teacher actually makes? Oh that totally dependents on the studio, and depends on the experience. From my experience of when I just started to now, there is a big range between $25 an hour to I would say $70. And it’s totally different if you are in a workshop or something like that, that is where you make most of your money.

Hypnotherapy That Works

Everyone deserves a calm, peaceful, side-effect free life.

www.GracePlaceWellness.ca

Where do yoga teachers get their massage training? So massage training in part, depends on what training you want, most trainings are different. I had training where we had a reiki specialist who actually had adjustment training. For my score results, it was part of the training that I did but it totally depends on the models that you are doing, depends on the studio I work with, they are all just so different. For the purpose of the interview, what we are trying to find out, if people are interested in the community is knowing if your liability in Yoga Alliance covers you for massage? Yes it depends on your insurance so there is all different types of yoga insurance. For me personally I have insurance that covers me for anybody who is ever in my class and then there is also studio insurance etc. Its all general information, I am sure everyone is aware of it. So the main question is: what is your yoga philosophy in one sentence? Oh in one sentence. To listen to your own body, everyone’s body is so different, that’s because something that works for my body doesn’t necessarily mean it works for yours. One sentence yes that is hard. One sentence, I would say, yes, pick the style that suits your body and not the person next to you or a teacher may not be able to assess you right. So the next question is really really important for the state of the yoga industry today and also what is happening in the world. What advice would you give to the cancer patient who comes for the first time to your class, taking chemotherapy? Find love, find love with themselves. I have actually worked with a few people before and after their treatment. The one thing I learned from a friend that just had chemo, is just getting to like their own body. That is a huge thing itself, connecting with their breath again, getting to know their spirit and their soul and that’s one of the many physical objectives. The last question is: what is the meaning of Shanti to you? Peace, love, protection and there is so much in such a wide sphere. Thank you so much Brittany, I appreciate your time. Yes no worries, yeah ok, Shanti!

Research shows Clinical Hypnotherapy to be safer and more effective than drugs and talk therapy, with fewer sessions and more root-cause resolution of problems.

CONNECTION Channelled by Lisa Virtue

W

hat is the relationship you have with your Creator? Are you feeling disconnected? Have you thought about the greater energy? Your vast essence is much more than you perceive here in the physical. You have heard this before and you will likely hear it again many times. While there can be a mental understanding of the concepts, what is that deeper sense within you? Have you cultivated a connection to that which is beyond your five sensory inputs? Have you delved into a deeper feeling? What is achieved by doing so you may ask? What is wrong with simply going around as you have been in the day-to-day human experience? Of course there is absolutely not a thing wrong or incorrect in doing so. However, if you are seeking something beyond that… and we feel you are here reading this because it is in the context of where you are looking for something beyond. You have already felt that it is limited to be only in the five sense dealings. So what is it that you are seeking? Fulfilment? Depth? Love? Connection? Compassion? Understanding? What you’re seeking could be summed up as “connection to the Divine.” For encapsulated within that is all that you could desire. Why do so many seek in this way? Why are they drawn to this type of spiritual exploration? It is because you know within you, innately underneath, that you are more than you see. You have not been severed 100% from the greater expanse of things. You have simply entered a forgetfulness, an illusion, and you chose to play along with the illusion. Yet not to be so lost in it that you could never return. That tie home gives you that sense that there is more. So while you are living in your ultimate virtual reality experience, take time to cultivate and strengthen, develop that connection. It brings with it a greater sense of self, and widens your possibilities. As you sense and feel and allow and grow your greater connection to All-That-Is, you allow more in your life here. You remember your worth and value more. As that integrates, you find life easier to manage. As this grows you open to further inspiration. The joy of opportunity flows. The recognition that you can be and do and have and experience so much and enjoy it, becomes more prominent for you. While you may still tackle challenging topics and experiences, as you cultivate this greater connection you develop a harmony within yourself. You begin to believe more in your own self. Your perception of life shifts to one of prosperity, abundance, health, wellbeing, and joy more frequently. So when you feel that things aren’t going your way or you are distraught or distressed, and it seems that taking the time to develop a connection is wasting your valuable resource, recognize that even a few moments spent cultivating the depth of your inner

connection and connection with All-That-Is / your Creator, pays dividends far beyond the input. For every moment you spend in that peaceful state it is like giving yourself several hours of wiggle room. It comes back to you Dear One, greater than you put in. For the Divine is always flowing abundance and love to you. Your periods of connection or allowing or peace, are you opening the doors and saying, “I’m ready to receive.” Nothing is being held from you. It is only your own resistance and blocks that you put up, often unaware, that prevent that flow. It is part of life do not feel bad about it. But know that spending the time is very worthwhile and you will ultimately feel good about having done so. We leave you with this for now, Dear Beings of Love. Enjoy your time as an incarnate being having such great feeling-type experiences. With love from Creator / All-That-Is Lisa Virtue channels Divine beings to aid you in your own ascension process. Join her for an Energy Healing to clear away more of the blocks to your receptive state.
