Reaching the Back Through Our Feet Written by Alexis Nicol


ince this month we are talking about the spine I thought I’d give you a little insight as to how a foot reflexology treatment can be helpful when dealing with the spinal reflexes. While working on someone’s feet using this gentle method of complementary healing I am rarely disappointed in my client’s reactions. The areas where the spinal reflexes exist are especially important as they connect us to every part of the body via the central nervous system which runs along and through the spinal column. From the tip of your toes to the top of your head I get to stimulate the reflexes in your feet that have most likely been waiting far too long for to be so gently awakened. During a treatment you (the client) and therapist will work together to pinpoint areas of discomfort or that are in need of balancing. Combining reflexology with the loving energy of Reiki is an amazing way to receive this beautiful and noninvasive treatment. Not only can it bring about healing, it offers one improved circulation, stress relief and relaxation. Many people are unaware of the fact that this combination of treatments is not only for those with everything intact but also those where a part is missing. When a client has had something removed, such as a

gallbladder, appendix, tonsils, kidney and even digits or limb(s) we are still able to work on these areas. It also works on past traumas, surgeries and phantom pain. I often have clients that comment that it is sensitive in a reflex point that corresponds to the exact location where they have previously incurred a trauma. I strongly believe in the use of reflexology and/or Reiki, because I have seen and experienced personally that they help one heal on all levels, spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. I hope you’ll give it a try. Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul. She incorporates Reiki, Reflexology, Reconnective Healing®, the Reconnection® and A Course In Miracles in her practice. www.firstlighthealing.com 613-263-7925

healing is to let your giving and receiving be roughly equal over time. A person can give without limit as long as they can receive without limit. This means that a person is neither “selfish” nor “selfless”. They are acting on the basis of “enlightened self-interest”. They understand that a person can love another only to the level that they themselves are loved. They understand that love is an inter-active process. It needs a sender, a receiver, and true empathy.

Mindfulness Meditation Tips for Beginners


n our busy lives, meditation and mindfulness have become increasingly popular topics. There are so many benefits to be gained through meditation, but beginners often struggle to develop a meditation practice. There is a lot of confusion around the simple, but challenging, practice of meditation. A few tips can make a significant difference. Meditate more effectively and enjoy greater benefits: 1. You don’t need anything to meditate. It can be nice to have a proper cushion, loose fitting clothing, and a quiet location. However, you don’t need any of those things. You can meditate on the bus in your three-piece suit. You always have everything you need with you to meditate properly. 2. Start with mindful breathing. Other forms of meditation can require higher levels of focus and discipline. Arguably, mindful breathing is the most valuable form of meditation. Simply focus on your breathing. When your mind wanders, gently bring your focus back to your breath. 3. Move if you need to. That doesn’t mean to squirm around in your seated position. Get up and talk a walk instead. Be mindful in your walking. Ideally, you can find a peaceful location where you can still focus on your breath, free from the worry of being run over by a car. The more distractions you have, the more challenging it will be. 4. Use a timer. Suppose you plan to meditate for 15 minutes. It can be very distracting to wonder how much time is left. So, you peek at the clock and mentally calculate how much time is left. Use a timer instead and keep your attention where it belongs. 5. Be gentle. Meditation isn’t about forcing yourself to concentrate with tremendous effort. Meditation gives energy. It doesn’t take energy from you. Use gentle, persistent attention. You’ll be more successful and enjoy the process much more.


6. Add time to your meditation practice slowly. Avoid pushing yourself. Five minutes is a good start. Adding a few minutes each week. A long session of 30 minutes per day is a worthwhile goal to work up to. Meditation is a subtle skill that requires time and practice. Many beginners give up before realizing the benefits that meditation provides. Make meditation one of your daily habits. It won’t take long before you consider meditation to be one of your most important activities.

An Eucalyptus by any Other Name


t Planet Botanix, we carry five of the eucalyptus varieties. Did you know that there are actually hundreds of different types of this useful plant?! Eucalyptus in general is known to heal, clarify, purify and soothe, due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmotic (helps with coughs) and stimulating properties. Eucalyptus globulus (aka Blue Gum) is by far the most well known. It is the scent used by spas for help clear the lungs and bring focus and clarity. It can also help in a massage for aches and pains. Eucalyptus radiata (black peppermint) has a gentler, more subtle scent. Eucalyptus citriodora (lemonscented) is a boon to bug sprays and, as expected, has a lemony eucalyptus scent. It is said to be great for treating athlete’s foot, and as a remedy for shingles. It can assist with cold sores.


Eucalyptus polybractea (Blue Mallee) is a powerful member of this family. It has great antiseptic properties. Eucalyptus Dives (peppermint eucalyptus) works like globulus, but with a hint of sparkling peppermint added! So how do you use these amazing plant materials? You can diffuse them to clear sinuses or bronchial congestion. You can use them in your bath (diluted) for the same purpose, and to bring the spa experience home. You can add them to a salve to help relieve chest congestion or muscle soreness-the possibilities are endless! Come visit us to experience the scents of eucalypi and dozens more essential oils! ©2017 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St near Somerset.

Sacred Stalker: Part Two

Ian Prattis knew I had to emerge from the swamp I had created. The deadly sea voyage was the signal for me to embark on an intense spiritual journey. They were not my hands on the wheel. It took me a long time to realize that it was none other than Trailing Sky who saved my life at that instance – and on many other occasions. It was no accident that on my return to Canada after the brutal sea voyage I first met White Eagle Woman at an elders gathering. She beckoned me over, looked me right in the eye and told me that she did not like me at all. Quite an introduction! She had been instructed by her ancestors to train me and it began straight away with an eight day vision quest. Her blunt introduction was a prelude to a thirty year period of training and healing under her guidance. She became a spiritual mentor and directed the shamanic process of my healing from childhood sexual abuse. This allowed the mosaic of the past to reveal itself. She also identified Trailing Sky for me and then taught me how to create a medicine wheel in my mind with a circle at the sacred centre. That was the location where I could dialog with Trailing Sky. I also met a Rishi – a holy man from India who recognized me and insisted I go to India for spiritual training. I took leave from my university and spent two years as a yogi, where the spiritual treasures of India were opened to me. I also became seriously ill and knew there was a distinct possibility of death. I met this with calm and a total lack of fear. Huddled on a bed in an ashram in


Mumbai, India – I opened my eyes to see one of my swami mentors. He said: “We are so happy Ian that you have decided to die with us in India. And we will be most happy should you live.” Lying there close to death, the lack of fear provided a sense of freedom. Trailing Sky was also there – constantly. She orchestrated all the energies to keep me alive. I later learned that she was there every time my life was at risk. That must have kept her very busy!! She brought me through to safety – time after time. Trailing Sky is not an illusion, a projection that I am attached to. She is the ultimate Muse, constituting all that is now crystal clear within me. I am deeply humbled and privileged to touch this deep wisdom of transformation. She said to me, “You have transformed all that you brought in with you and suffered from, You changed course and now have freedom and alignment. The person who stumbled blindly through the first part of your life is not the Ian walking through the second part of life. In India, Arizona, France, the Canadian wilderness and around the world you went to extraordinary lengths to deal with karma. Had you not done so – I would have to wait for several more lifetimes to come through to you. There were so many severe experiences, but you responded by moving in this spiritual direction. You touched a universal thread and that allowed me to close the gap – so I could keep my promise from 1777.” The rest of my life is still a work in progress The book is available at http://www.ianprattis.com/ TrailingSky.html for an author autograph.

There Is A Way to Move Past Your Pain It is Right Here in Ottawa!


have an amazing health journey I wish to share with my friends, family and the people of Ottawa and beyond. Five years ago I had a severe back injury, which left me somewhat immobile and in extreme and constant pain for about five years. I was treated with many different modalities, but nothing would keep the pain and discomfort at bay. I could no longer do the work I loved as a Registered Massage Therapist. My heart was sinking as I became less mobile and my pain levels were escalating, arthritis was setting in, and my weight was increasing due to the lack of movement. My vision of life had been diminished to thinking I was headed for a lifetime of pain, discomfort and disability. I had dispelled any ideas of attending a gym, fitness program or yoga class for fear that my condition would worsen. Then I was coaxed into trying a class of Korean Style Yoga at the Body and Brain Healing Centre here in Ottawa. The Centre is the only one of its kind in Ottawa, teaching this style of practice. I was at the end of my rope and thought to myself, why not try, what do I have to lose? I was terrified I would be pushed into doing movements that would cause further pain or reinjury. With the gentle guidance of Master Kuam and his efficient staff, I was instructed to work within my physical limitations. Within three weeks, I already noticed changes in my flexibility, pain levels and attitude towards life. With these remarkable results, I continued to attend classes every day, seven days a week for over a year. That was one and a half years ago, and today I can touch my toes, bend side to side, sit cross-legged on the floor, do push ups, all with a great feeling of joy in my heart. These are all things I never imagined I would be able to do again. The added bonus to this was losing 32 pounds and 8 inches off my waist without changing my diet. I still have a back condition, but it no longer controls my life.

Principle Instructor / Certified Financial Planner


or the past eleven years I’ve have been on a path of personal growth because I had finally realized that if I wanted to grow my business, I had to grow myself along with it. You see, your net-worth is equal to your self-worth and when you work on your “inner world”, your “outer world” will take shape as you envision it. One of the big issues that keeps people from going after their dreams is the fear of the Future. FEAR stands for Future Event Appearing Real. Fear stops people dead in their tracks because we tend to pay attention to all the stories that keep running in our heads. On average we have about 9,000 thoughts a day and most of them are not supportive of anything other than keeping you in your present state of being. My challenge was to break that cycle and to start focusing on the positive side of What if. What if I did succeed once I put this plan into motion? What if I did attain my goals? What if I did have the resources to make this plan a reality? What if I did make that call or book that appointment with that prospect? What if, because of you taking action today, you did attain your goal? How would you feel? How would that impact your family and your business? How would that change your life? I can tell you that it feels wonderful going for it and achieving your goal. I can also tell you that you will have butterflies through this whole process because you will be coming out of your comfort zone. And that is the whole point; you are in that place today because it’s comfortable being there. The road to success is not easy and, as you will find out, the rewards are gratifying. What if you went for it? Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawa-based Praxis Wealth Institute. He is a Certified Retirement Coach, Certified Financial Planner as well as public speaker. He is the author of “The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness”. He conducts workshops and courses on the subject of winning the game of wealth creation.

Depression & Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac


epression is a medical illness that involves the mind and body, affecting how a person feels, thinks and behaves. It is characterized by low moods and a loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities. Other symptoms may include preoccupation or over-thinking, irritability or frustration, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, poor concentration and memory, withdrawal from social situations, reduced sex drive, and insomnia, as well as fatigue, headaches, digestive problems, reduced appetite (or in some cases increased appetite), and an agitated or lethargic behaviour. Although the causes are still not yet fully understood, a variety of factors are believed to be involved. These include biological differences (people with depression appear to have physical changes in their brains), the levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, the body’s balance of hormones, genetics, early childhood trauma, and major life events such as the loss of a loved one or high stress. The most common treatments for depression are psychotherapy, anti-depressant medication, and electroconvulsive therapy, used only as a last resort. Acupuncture is an excellent option for the treatment of depression, as it is very effective in both relieving the symptoms and in resolving the condition with continued treatments, and without negative side effects. Chinese medicine (TCM) takes a much different approach to depression and focuses much more on the overall functioning of the body and how the various organs and systems are working in relation to each other. According to TCM, there are different causes and mechanisms for depression in different people. For some people it has to do with mental-emotional causes such as continued stress, frustration or worry. Other factors can be either too much or too little exercise and activity. Or it may be due to other diseases in the body, or age or body type. In others it may be faulty diet or lifestyle factors.


SRI CHINMOY: First, we have to know what we mean by Heaven. Heaven is a plane of divine Consciousness. The Kingdom of Heaven is within us. It is our own inner achievement—our aspiration, our mounting inner cry— that leads us to this Kingdom of Heaven. We feel it when we reside deep within ourselves and when we transcend our egocentric individual consciousness. Heaven is where you get joy, peace, love and harmony in boundless measure. This is what we mean when we use the term ‘Heaven’. Heaven is inside your soul. Where is your soul? Your soul is inside your heart. Each time we do something good, we are creating a divine atmosphere around us. If each and every one can offer good thoughts to the world, the atmosphere becomes divinely pure; it increases its divinity. But our very nature is to see the negative side and feed the negative side in our life. Always we are dividing everything with our desiremind. But when we use our heart, today we are uniting and tomorrow we are expanding our limited self. If we do not unite, we cannot expand. Division is not satisfaction, but in union we become satisfied. We have to start right from the beginning to have good thoughts. As soon as we see someone, we have to think of seeing that person with good thoughts. Not only that, but right from the morning we have to think of ourselves as good human beings. When you get up in the morning, forget about yesterday. If yesterday you did something wrong, forget about it. If you did something good yesterday, then immediately do something better. Always we have to look within to see whether we can build something divine, illumining and fulfilling. If we see that we could not do it in the morning or in the afternoon, let us try in the evening. When we have these ideas in our mind, in our waking consciousness, then we are bound to make the fastest progress towards creating Heaven inside ourselves, towards manifesting Divinity here on earth.

4 Simple Rules to Hypnotic Weight Loss


umber 3, I’m gonna unpackage number three for you. Number three is eat consciously. Most people that I know, myself formerly included, would eat completely unconsciously. What do I mean by this? Most people who come into my office think they’re coming to be hypnotized, because I am the hypnotist, right? In actual fact, most of the time I’m de-hypnotizing people, because they’re already in a trance. It’s a pretty shitty trance, that’s limiting your life and causing some kind of suffering. So protocol number three is eat consciously. It’s turning the unconscious process of eating into a conscious process. Most people that have a problem with eating, emotional eating, with weight, they focus on food all the time, except for when they’re eating. Well, they might be focusing on what they’re gonna eat later or what they’ll do later, but they’re not focusing on the food that’s in their mouth at that time. So it’s taking away the joy from it. So whatever you’re eating, whether it be something healthy or what we’re told is healthy, broccoli, vegetables, whatever. Or whether



“I Can Make YouStop Stop Smoking in One Hour”Hour” 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


it’s a piece of cheesecake, whether it’s a Frappuccino, enjoy the hell out of it. Chew it 20 to 30 times, whatever the food is. Put your knife and fork down in between every bite. If it’s a smoothie or it’s a drink, take a sip, mouthful, put it down. Then repeat, 20 to 30 times. But chew the food 20 to 30 times so it becomes that liquid in your mouth. Always leave a bit of food on the plate. Now, I don’t know if you’re like me and you were brought up by well-meaning parents, but I was brought up by wellmeaning parents that tried to put me in the Clean Plate Club. What’s the Clean Plate Club? It goes a bit like this. It’s a seed or a suggestion that’s planted from a very early age, where it’s like, “Oh, you got to eat all your food on your plate so you can grow up and be big and strong.” Or “You got to eat food on your plate so the kids in Africa are not gonna die ‘cause they’re starving.” I had all this growing up, and most of my clients have had it, and by well-meaning parents or guardians most of the time. And really what that is, is a suggestion that they’re putting in our head, or a seed at a very young age, where it’s not okay to leave food on our plate. Because I won’t grow up and be big and strong, or someone’s gonna die in another country that you’ve never met before. There’s no evidence to prove

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.

November 2017

“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: www.lukenosis.com and you can contact Dr. Luke at LUKEnosis to arrange an appointment at 613-8785874.

DowntownDowntown and Alta Vista locations location this, but we’re told from a kid and we forget about that suggestion and we operate it, hence why a lot of people have this necessity to eat all the food on their plate, even though they started to feel satisfied about half way into the plate. So all still part of number three, protocol number three, eating consciously. Leave some food on the plate. What does that mean? Does that mean you have to waste it and throw it away? No, you can eat it later when you’re hungry. You can give it to your animal, to your dog, probably not the cat if she’s a bit fat. Oh no, she’s okay. She’ll bite me later to tell me off, you see? Or you give it to a loved one or something, but just leave a bit of food on the plate, because what you’re doing is you’re training your unconscious mind, the bit we’re working with, the bit that controls all this emotional eating anyways. It’s okay for me to leave some food on the plate and nothing bad happens. My mum and dad don’t call me up as an add-on and be like, “Oh I just saw on your video that you left food on your plate. I’m gonna come by and ground you for a week.” No. No one cares, you’re the only one that’s keeping score. So leave some food on the plate. If it’s appropriate, close your eyes when you eat. What does that do? Science has shown us in studies that people who close their eyes when it’s appropriate, when it’s safe, when you eat tend to eat about 50% less simply by closing their eyes, because most people when

it comes to overeating have a very visual strategy. So what you do is you take out the visual cortex once you know what your food is, and you just become gustatory, and it’s focused on that sense of taste or olfactory smell. It knocks out the main sense, and people tend to find they eat far less when they close their eyes. Here’s the most important one, in number three, and that is when you eat, eat consciously. Close your book. Turn off the internet. Put down your cell phone. Close the tablet. Turn off the TV. Turn off the loud crazy music that you crazy kids listen to, and just be present, just be mindful, just be in the now when you’re eating. It has a very powerful effect. If you’re gonna eat, whatever you’re gonna eat, at least be mindful, be present, meditate on that food and enjoy the hell out of it with no distractions. Here’s an interesting thing. 40, 50 years ago, the average meal would take a minimum 20 minutes to eat, sometimes 30, 40 minutes to eat a meal that was probably a lot less than we’re eating now. Now we scarf down all this food rather rapidly, because we’re multitasking. We’re updating our Facebook, we’re replying to that text, we’re going on the OK Cupid and seeing if we’ve got any love matches. We’re doing all those things all the time, and that food that probably would have taken us 20 to 40 minutes 50 years ago, to eat less of this food, now we eat in five minutes because we’re always in a rush, being pulled, distracted in multiple directions. So stop it. Stop the sound. Stop the nonsense. When you eat, that’s all you do. And enjoy the hell out of it. It’s all right to eat, so you better well frigging enjoy it when you do it. So switch off all the distractions. Part 4 will be in the next issue of Tone Always Believe, Luke Michael Howard PhD, Clinical Hypnotist Toronto Hypnosis www.LUKEnosis.com

Could this be experienced in a totally different way? My old way has been to avoid it by convincing myself I really didn’t want it - denying what I really desire. Pathwork Lecture 222: The Transformation of the Lower Self encourages us to actually look more closely at this negative voice that rules our way of thinking in certain areas of our lives, to search inward with an attitude of finding the truth, with an inquiring mind open to transforming this negative energy. Imagine taking this energy that keeps us stuck and turning it around into a positive energy that actually brings an attitude of yes “to the meaning of life, to beauty, love, truth, expansion joy and peace.” Not only do we release the misconception that nothing can be done, but we begin to see this stuckness as exactly where our way to freedom begins. “Within us there is a movement that embraces life, that affirms life, that wants that which is divine. And there is a countermovement that denies it all”. It is this countermovement – in Pathwork terms, Lower Self – that makes us a victim. Our task is to transform that which denies our living fully. The lecture illuminates and offers guidance about how to begin this transformation process. It is the subject

3 Things to Remember in Turbulent Times by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.


here are three things to remember during these turbulent days. The first is that we are eternal and no matter what happens we are safe as we return to Source. The second is that nobody can tell us what our truth is unless we allow them to. And thirdly, if we take the time to look within we will find the answers that we need. Why are these three things the most important right now? At this timing, Earth is experiencing an influx of energetic support for our collective evolution. These beings are here because as a global community we have asked for support time and time again, and this means that our human race has been awakened to know that we are united at every atom of our existences and expressions. However, these beings are varied, and they do not serve as our saviour, and they will not rescue us. They do not come because we are helpless to help ourselves or others. They are support. Our own inner, core Spirit is the true centre of our being, first and foremost. This is where truth resides and nowhere else.

This is the time to be sure that if we are looking externally for answers to ourselves we may find that we are being misdirected. We may find that we are being centred in deception, or moving in a direction that does not resonate. So this is not stated to create fear, but to understand that developing our own inner awareness and ability to discern truth is what brings us into spiritual maturity and mastery. This is what we are all learning to put into expression so that we can choose God-Source, especially when the unexpected enters our lives.

BOWEN THERAPI Bowen Therapy Helps Integrate Emotional Healing

In this article, certified bilingual Bowenwork practitioner Francine Ryan describes how a Bowen Therapy session complemented an intensive heart healing retreat.


n August 2017, Francine attended a powerful and transformative retreat entitled “Open to Love” led by Evolution of the Heart facilitators Bill and Patricia Clum. The three day retreat focused on opening the heart, supporting participants in their efforts to bring deep fears and emotions into awareness. The day after the retreat ended, Francine was approached by another retreat participant and occasional Bowen Therapy client for a session. While Francine was delighted to comply with the request, she was unprepared for how intensely her client’s body would respond to Bowenwork after three days of resolving some heart wounding and releasing resistance.


Francine observed how deeply the client’s body embraced the re-balancing process. For example, the waiting time between sets of moves is typically two to five minutes to give the muscles time to relax and to allow the nervous system to process the signals. With this client, the waiting time for processing extended to ten minutes,

ISTS OF OTTAWA and occasionally fifteen minutes. In fact, the client responded throughout the session with a greater ease of flow and deeper connection than experienced previously. The increased receptivity was more impressive because this client only receives Bowen Therapy treatments two or three times a year when she visits Ottawa. There was no frequency of Bowenwork sessions to account for her body’s release and ease. In all her years of practicing Bowen Therapy, Francine rarely witnessed such a profound impact on a client. As a result of the client’s retreat experience, her heart was more open which enabled her body to more effectively receive and connect with its own needs and desires. The client’s response to the Bowen Therapy session was that “it helped ground and balance my body and emotions after such an intense weekend.” She felt “more integrated” and “ready to get on a plane and re-enter my life.” This client’s experience demonstrates how a Bowen Therapy session can assist the physical body to integrate emotional healing, and to reinforce the mind-body connection. Bowenwork can increase vitality, emotional balance and enhance one’s ability to meet life with grace and resilience. About Bowen Therapy Bowen Therapy, trademarked as Bowenwork and Bowtech - the Original Bowen Technique, is a whole body, hands-on soft tissue therapy with specific procedures that target a long list of issues. Precise gentle moves send signals to the central nervous system and indirectly to the autonomic nervous system via muscle proprioceptors and afferent nerves. The light, gentle touch is suitable for newborns and children, adults, elderly, athletes and pregnant women. There’s a Bowenwork practitioner near you.

Dignity 101: Self-Renewal & Soul Care: Beginner Learning


Your 7th sense is your “intuition” - you somehow just know something without foundation. Women are known to have this and men refer to it as a deep gut sense. The Soul is the part of you that never dies. It is the energy that feeds your life. It holds the life lessons you need to learn while on Earth. These are discovered through experience. Life is your own personal puzzle full of riddles and stories. The Soul asks that you get to know it consciously through conscious choice making. As you can see, understanding spirituality outside of religion can be a confusing mess. We have made the spiritual/subtle body so complicated it’s hard to find one place that will walk you through all of its nuances at a beginner level.

id this ever happen to you? Once when you were very relaxed, you looked up at someone and saw colours around that person? And/or you felt heat in your hands, or you heard sounds that are not of this world? You can’t help but wonder: “What is happening to me? People will think I’m crazy if I say anything or worse!” This is the natural response when your Soul starts to reveal an aspect of yourself that relates to your spirituality - stuff not taught in our religions. In the 1950’s, a Hindu Saint called Yogananda came to America to introduce yoga. A mixture of physical movements D i g n i t y 1 0 1 presents: For Women ONLY! and meditation that help connect Healing the Divine Feminine Within you to the Divine. He also spoke of “chakras”.

The Path to Prosperity (By Rev. Roxanne Buckle, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa)


hen we use the term prosperity in Unity, we mean spiritual well-being that manifests as harmonious relationships, radiant health, creative expression and the time and money to do and give what we deeply desire. Who doesn’t want more of this? The key is learning how to manifest these heartfelt desires. This success starts with the universal spiritual law that life is consciousness. In other words, life is truly lived from within-out which means that everything we experience is determined by our beliefs, our perspectives and the thoughts and feelings we hold in mind. In Unity, we call this the law of Mind Action. It explains why SOME people who seem to have so little in the way of material possessions can be so happy, while SOME who seem to have so much can be just miserable. In other words, what is going on outside of us in terms of the health of our relationships, finances or bodies is the actual outpicturing of what is going on inside of us. Long before the field of quantum physics was revealed, Unity co-founder Charles Fillmore described an energetic field which he termed ‘Spiritual Substance’. It is everywhere present, pervades all things, and inspires us to action. It underlies all manifestation and as the Spiritual essence, it is the living energy out of which everything is made. Since life is consciousness, this means everything is created twice, first in mind, then in manifestation. It is our relationship with this realm of Spiritual Substance that determines our physical manifestation. Faith is the spiritual capacity by which we form and shape this ever-present element of Spirit-Substance. It’s our job as spiritual beings having a human experience to keep centred in holding an awareness of all pervasive substance, this divine power. Our work is to keep the flow open. Just as we tap into the energy source in a room by turning on the light,

Spirit of Nutrition Michelle Leblanc R.H.N, B.A. Psychology

Nutrition is important. Eating healthy food is good for us. And don't forget to exercise, too. But why? Why should we put effort into choosing, buying, prepping, cooking and eating whole foods that may not be as convenient, cheap or delicious as processed and ready made socalled "food"? When our days are busy enough, why should we struggle to find the time and motivation for these positive health behaviours? Providing our body with adequate or even ample nutrients is both a foundation of and result

of the quest for a meaningful life. Robust health can get us ahead and diminished health can set us back. If we are weighed down by health issues due to poor food choices then we may not have the mental and physical energy to pursue higher level passions and growth. Unhealthy eating habits can contribute to diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure, as well as general fatigue. Nutrients from whole foods supports us mentally and physically. This leads to our ability to find a path to heal our heart's pain and to pursue our heart's desire. Eating well is a foundation for healing and growth. Conversely, being able to make healthy food choices can come about from the quest for meaning

Wishingtree Yoga Start a journey with Rupa (Ivy)

The light to see the way By Rupa


ith the restraint of the river bed, the journey of a river can be simple. Even if it’s long, it has no choice but to go towards the ocean. After the river goes through all the twists and turns and at last reaches the ocean, is this the journey’s end or beginning? Can we face the immense ocean? With the body holding the soul, we might have to face a lot of troubles in our lives. We just deal with what we have to face. How about death? Is death the end or beginning? How do we deal with death? Are we ready? Some believe that if we have faith in God then we can live in God’s kingdom after we die. But, if paradise is so good, why are we not allowed to die and enjoy at once? What is reality? What is illusion? Even very knowledgeable people can be bewildered. The spiritual world and phenomenon world share the same Universal Law. If we cannot find happiness in the material world we cannot be happy in the spiritual world either. Dreamland exists only if we work on it. Otherwise, it only appears in our dream -- something produced from our mind and mixed with reality. The universe was not created from nothing. The sky seems void, but actually full of planets. We tend to believe what we see with our own eyes. We forget that our sense organs have limitations. If we believe our own eyes, then we believe the Sun is smaller than the

in our life. To be emotionally ready to provide the self-care required of proper nutrition we must believe we are worthy of caring for ourself. To be able to give up self-defeating behaviours in a process of recognizing and abandoning damaging patterns and replacing them with productive ones. As we become aware of faulty emotional patterns we may notice our faulty health patterns that decrease our vitality.


Earth and the Earth is the centre of Solar system. This is the power of illusion. We make believe like a child that the illusion is reality. We forget where we live. We need to open our eyes to see through the outward appearance. Human nature never changes. We have always searched for well-being, happiness and freedom from the beginning of our existence. Each age has its teachers to show us the way. What we need to do is to choose one path and walk along it. Achieve our highest potential and own best, and allow everything else to be revealed to us. Wishingtree Yoga 200H Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training introduces different ways of Yoga practice and through practice, you can find your own way -- the way towards a happy, wholesome and holistic life. Rupa (Ivy) has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom. Living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. Join Rupa for an unforgettable journey towards Selfrealization. The experience will give an understanding of Yoga’s amazing scientific knowledge, and practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat! It is all about your SELF.

The Journey of Spinal Injury Recovery - the Doorway to Your very own Self “God is in your spine” as said by Yogananda, one of the first enlightened guru’s to emerge in the western scene. A radical statement in which shook the Wests’ beliefs to its core. I will explore this through my journey of healing. Along my path, understanding this statement was a profound lesson. By the age of 13 I had the first of 3 Disc Herniations which would span over 13 years. I was forced into a long journey of healing. At first it was the more physical methods of healing. Methods in which were mainly prescribed through traditional western doctors, massage therapists and physiotherapist. I continued to be left unsatisfied with short term relief, yet re-emergent suffering. Through this, I inquired deeper into various other methods of alternative healing, and inner discovery Here I am going to outline the core practices I used in this process. Starting at the Root… Physically. - Before we get into the deeper aspects of the body and the core cause to all dis-ease, we of course need to look at the physical body in a new way. Many of our more modern methods of movement and physical exercise are very linear and rigid. With this, we tend to overdo our involvement within them, in which leads to imbalances within the physical body. Even with the growth of physical Asana based yoga practice, many imbalances are caused due to the overemphasis on asana practice. When in reality, Asana should be practiced much less for most. To balance this, I first dived into corrective exercise. A method of exercise in which is focused on balancing the imbalanced muscles within the body. This can take form in many traditional methods of exercise, weight lifting and yoga asana. The only difference is one is doing them with a very intentional understanding of their use to balance out muscle groups in which may be weak or too strong. By first starting with an specific assessment process that many of my colleagues use, they can get a picture on what this looks like for any individual and from there recommend what is most important for the balancing process. With this foundation, the next modality is one that is very transformational. That is, Ecstatic Dance. This form of dance is a method of dance that focuses on one being very expressive, listening into one’s inner being, spine and emotions to guide movement in a explosive, flowing, subtle and expansive way. It is a method of body expression in which I feel captivates one's highest potential of their creative energy and force. It forces one to surrender to what the body needs to come into wholeness and balance.


The movement side of my physical spinal healing was one side of the coin. The other was Chiropractic care, specifically with Brent from Arc of Life in Ottawa.. This was a perfect balance to the intensity of ecstatic dance and movement practices. It made more “room” for the body to naturally come into its balance and alignment. All Dis-Ease is Blocked Emotional Energy - This is a common topic within various energy healing fields.All blocked up or unresolved emotional experiences (we can call this emotional incompletions) if left unresolved for an extended period of time will result in a more dense manifestation in the mental and physical bodies. Initially, peering into the worlds of Louise Hay and her depiction of the behavioural reasoning behind many common ailments and issues within the entirety of the body was a profound step. Her Intuitive ability led her to determining patterns within her patients in which revealed similar behaviour traits for individuals with similar ailments of specific areas of the body. Through this discovery, it acted as a pointer to the very specific emotionally based limiting beliefs and behavioural traits in which were part of the cause for the various spinal injuries. As I journeyed deeper and discovered the nature of emotional and energy healing, over time, it became very simple With the correct guidance and one’s willingness to take responsibility for the healing required, one can journey with leaps and bounds at a rapid pace. In a recent article I did on my website, I’ve outlined a revolutionary yet very simple process for energy healing in which I feel encapsulates the hundreds and thousands of energy healing modalities. Once one understands these principles, anything can be healed. Kundalini Kriya Spina Breathing - It is a knowing deep within, that each individual is responsible for their own healing. Much support can be accepted along the path, though, it always comes back to the individual. With this, techniques in which one can practice on their own, taught and initiated by a true teacher, are of highest importance. A core technique in which I was initiated into by a Himalayan Master combines the 3 most important aspects of our human experience. Awareness, breath and the spinal column. By way of this technique, one is able to clear the core root to all energetic and emotional blocks held within the energy body. All energy meridians and nadis connect back to the main central channel in the spine called Sushumna. Through the intentional purification of this main channel, one relieves themselves of emotional build up. Now for the root…

From Chronic Back Condition to Freedom


y name is Andrea. When I was 18, I began to have many issues with my body starting with extreme digestive issues, neck pain, back pain and some diagnosed me with chronic fatigue. I am now 49, with years of experience trying chiropractors, massage therapist, physio-therapists and many others, including alternative energy medicine. All seemed to help me feel better but nobody could get to the core of my patterns. Once I even took an amazing yoga pain management course and the teacher asked me to describe were I hurt. There was almost no part of the diagram that I have not coloured in. She laughed and thought, wow I wonder if I can help this woman. One day 6 years ago, I found a unique form of sound therapy called Quantum Sound Theory and began working with frequency and energy. Why not? I had tried so many other things and I was seeking change – Real permanent change in my life. Within days of listening to my weird first set of tones, I noticed my body relaxed, I was letting go of trapped emotions that I had not been willing to share with the world. What I began to observe was me and letting go of pain I had held onto for years trapped inside my body. I could feel my spine lengthen and space to breath. It never occurred to me that everything I held onto in my life was trapped inside my body. As I continued using the tools from Quantum Sound Therapy along with my favourite

Self-Inquiry, Answering the question “Who Am I” ? - As one can see from this article. This journey of healing the spine was a pointer to a more all encompassing intention. An intention to answer the single most important question, that question being “Who Am I?”. This is the fundamental question driving our entire experience of life. Everything we do, consciously or unconsciously, we are doing it to more further understand the nature of ourselves. This method of Self-Inquiry or in the yogic tradition called Jnana Yoga (the highest of all yoga’s) is the yoga of Self-Knowledge. A practice in which is not really a practice so much as it is a recognition of one’s very own self. The self, as the pure observer and awareness in which witnesses all of the changing phenomena of life, that being thought, feeling and sensation. All thoughts, feelings and sensations come and go, yet there is this pure awareness and observer in which never changes. This sense of being that anyone can connect with simply by asking themselves the question “do I exist?”. The feeling sense, beyond the word “YES” is this direct experience of oneSELF. This can be described as a pure unchanging awareness.


chiropractor I began to see change. Real change. So why share this? If you are looking for real, deep permanent change then sound therapy can help. If you are ready for change, unique tone and sounds can be used along with any other practice you are using to help you let go of what you are hanging onto, simply using sound. Step back into being the real you. Your family and the world needs you. Much love to all.

Now if all healing comes down to awareness, then coming to this source as the fundamental and primary practice for ALL healing.In many texts and story, people have described the enlightened one’s to have mystical healing and miracle working powers. What they were speaking of was this very way of perceiving life. This is not anything super-human or extra-ordinary. It is actually the most simple, natural way of being! It is your very own self! All of my current work is designed to support individuals on their path, specifically with the core modalities, processes and pointers in which are outlined here.

ow does this happen, you may ask. I’ve thought about this a great deal over the years, and I know that we have within us something called cellular memory. This capacity means that our body remembers what perfect health means, how it feels to be in high level wellness. As our bodies age, and experience what we do living in a body year after year, means that we have learned to have less than perfect health. We are bombarded daily with information on what aging means, on what pills we need to take to prevent or to cure different conditions. As we take in all the information that is out there about different conditions, we gradually take in that our bodies will naturally start to deteriorate and we have no right to expect anything else. We believe that we will have joint problems, possibly heart problems, digestive problems and because we have this belief, reinforced daily with what we see in the media, these issues develop naturally. Exactly... Deepak Chopra wrote, “To promote the healing response, you must get past all the grosser levels of the body — cells, tissues, organs, and systems — and arrive at a junction between mind and matter, the point where consciousness actually starts to have an effect.” I believe there is such a point where consciousness and matter intersect, that this junction exists on a quantum (subatomic) level, and that this extraordinary connection between mind and matter is accessible to us through our love and intent. By harnessing the innate power of our love, we can dynamically and positively activate the body’s own healing process. From the DNA to the bones, all cells and systems effortlessly respond to the healing vibration of your love.”

As a young child, as the result of an automobile accident, I had a spinal curvature. I had been told that it was in my imagination, but as I observed my clothing falling lower on one side than the other, and my hip bones being out of alignment, I was certain that my back was crooked, and with each pregnancy and subsequent carrying of babies, and laundry, my spinal curvature became more pronounced with the subsequent pain. I believed that I would be dealing with this in a greater and more painful way as I aged. Then one day, I discovered Quantum-Touch Therapy, and after many sessions with other kinds of therapy for my back pain, over many years, I finally found the way to total relief from this painful condition in about 5 minutes. Beginning in September until November 30th, 2017, I have a very special offer for clients who prepay and book a series of sessions, the opportunity to win two free sessions or their choice of Quantum-Touch Therapy, or of Empathic Coaching.

Heal, Awaken & Enlighten –The Quantum Sound Therapy Way

Are you ready to become whole, empowered, awakened and enlightened?


cience on our planet is based on assumptions, which in several instances, were later proven to be false. This kept humanity entrapped in the limitations associated with learned knowledge, its practical application, limiting their potential. It has been well known for ages that Humanity restores health from within. With the advent of Quantum Physics, the spiritual element in science has been reinstated, permitting the knowledge and wisdom from ancient civilizations to be acknowledged by science and is now finding its way into mainstream society. The bio-chemical approach to medicine is waning in popularity with the rise in Energy Medicine that addresses all components of health and well-being – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual (PEMS) – and that too with no known side effects, if any.. Welcome to the newest Scalar Energy Technology in Quantum Sound Therapy – that can reach the most minuet part of the brain to remove energy blockages associated with old programming that has kept humanity confined, and reprogram your mind to find your own unique power. The scalar energy comprises zero-point energy that optimizes intuition, clarity and creativity. This can change your life and find the seat of genius in your front left lobe. Your voice pattern is your energy signature that is a better representation than your DNA. It contains a blend of frequencies unique to you which may hold the key to progressive evolution! Sample of your voice is taken, analyzed, and a graph representing all PEMS and soul components is generated. A unique set of Personal Sound Frequencies (PSF) specifically designed to free you from your sub-conscious negative


thoughts, self-sabotage, and bring you into balance is then generated, including those for spinal health. Listening to your PSF harmonizes your energy and releases subconscious blocks that hold you back from living a life of love, joy and peace. Have you ever wondered the pace at which you can attain vibrant health, grow in spirit and attain enlightenment? There are three steps to spiritual growth. First, your body goes through detoxification, followed by rejuvenation process, and once rejuvenated in its totality, you undergo personal/ spiritual growth process. The desire to get well and take full responsibility for yourself, the willingness to embrace change and diligently work with your PSF accelerates your progress. It has the potential to transcend all limitations, medical and energetic, to restore health and accelerate your personal/ spiritual growth. The awakening, resulting there from, places you on your path to self-mastery on the road to full consciousness/ enlightenment in a relatively short period of time.

Golden Light Therapies – in alignment with the manufacturer’s mission to make this technology available to all globally – you get your 25-minute personal sound track with graph interpretation for $40.

Relax your mind. Energize your body. Connect with yourself.

By: Avegaile Calzado


ellness practices like yoga and meditation are supposed to help people relax and connect with themselves. However, if we’re not mindful, yoga and meditation can also be a source of stress, anxiety, and guilt. Many of us are busy, juggling different responsibilities. So, we end up rushing to our yoga and meditation class. When we finally get there, the class is overcrowded and we feel irritated by the person who took “our spot” or accidentally steps on our mat. Sometimes we find ourselves comparing our pose to other students, judging our bodies and abilities, and wishing we could be more flexible, stronger, etc. Just like everything else, we want yoga and meditation to be efficient and productive activities. We set goals and objectives for our yoga and meditation class. “I will attend such and such class this many times a week. I should see results! By this specific time, I should be able to do this pose or that pose perfectly. I should not miss any classes.” We forget that these thoughts are counterintuitive to our wellness practice and end up ruining the experience of relaxation and calm we are trying to achieve.

The Nourished Soul “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

~ Hippocrates

Nutrition Therapy for digestive, autoimmune and food addictions

• Renew your relationship with food • Discover the massive healing benefits of ancestral diets (your grandparent’s food) • Relieve autoimmune and digestive issues • Heal the root of food addiction • Discover your bio-individual blueprint for optimal nutrition • Receive a customized meal plan that nourishes your body and creates deep, abiding health

“Thanks to Ann, I am healthy once again! I recommend Ann’s services to anyone seeking better health or personal insights. I believe that her knowledge and skills in the area of holistic intestinal health are unsurpassed. And I cannot imagine that there is anyone who offers the return to health and wholeness that Ann gave me with the purity, clarity, competence and integrity that Ann embodies.” - Sandra S. Ottawa ON

Yoga and meditation are not about making ourselves better. Rather, they are processes of deconstructing the barriers we may have erected to prevent us from having an authentic connection with ourselves and with others. They help people slow down and be present in the moment. By connecting the body, mind, and spirit yoga and meditation can help us better understand ourselves, as well as how we relate to those around us, and how we respond to the challenges of our modern lives. My approach to body and mind wellness combines yoga, meditation, and expressive arts therapy as tools for relaxation, self-care, and personal development. I find that expressive arts therapy practices, such as journaling, drawing, painting, and photography, wonderfully complements yoga and meditation. These practices can be our channels to express thoughts and emotions that would otherwise be difficult for us to articulate. Through practice, we gradually develop mindfulness and allow ourselves to self-discover, learn, and grow. Avegaile Calzado, M.A., RYT, offers wellness seminars, workshops, and retreats.

I’m going to break it down: 1) Every food we eat impacts our intestinal flora 2) Our intestinal flora impact our immune system 3) Immune system = health

Hippocrates knew it waaaaay backwhen he said that “all disease begins in the gut”. Our ancestors knew it... so where and how did these last generations lose sight of this important truth? My thoughts? We’ve made the trade for convenience and it’s costing us; literally and figuratively. But there’s good news: we’re learning. And as we become more aware of the impact of food on our health, the pendulum is starting to swing back. In the last decade we’ve learned that most of the cells in our bodies are microbial. This means that they are made from microbes—more specifically bacteria. That bacteria produces chemicals that help us to harness energy and nutrients from our food. What’s interesting, and important to know, is that our gastrointestinal system, contains more of these health defining bacterias than the rest of our body. What does this mean in practical terms and how does it impacts our choices about what we consume, how we prepare it and how we store it? For starters, it makes the food preservation practices of our ancestors make a whole lot of sense to us on a much more scientific level.   The scientific community has only begun to scratch the surface of understanding the complex relationship between our gut and countless illnesses such as autoimmune disease, depression, food allergies and intolerances, leaky gut, IBS, cancer, obesity, and other aging-related diseases. There is no denying that gut related illnesses seem to be on the rise. Whether it be from a being in a constant state of stress or anxiety, a lack of bacterial diversity, insufficient “good” bacteria or too much damaging bacteria. What we do know is that we can rebuild our gut bacteria using fermented foods. (And you WANT a healthy gut! See 1, 2 and 3 above for reference). Enter fermented foods.

TANYA ROBERTSON Fitness Health Coordinator Holistic Nutritionist Personal Trainer Yoga Instructor Entrepreneur Teacher





Fermenting is making a serious comeback: Kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut and keifir are in and rapidly gaining media attention. What’s the big deal? Fermenting means that the sugars and carbohydrates in foods are broken down by beneficial (“good”) bacteria, causing the formation of lactic acid. This lactic acid acts as a flavouring agent, helps to preserve the food and “wakes up” colonies of beneficial bacteria. It also enhances the micronutrients, thus unleashing an avalanche of healthy benefits for our bodies. Want to give it a try? Join us Saturday, November 25th for a Festively Fermenting workshop where you will make  your own fermented cranberry chutney, kefir, cheese, gluten free crackers and a fermented alcoholic drink that will be better for you this holiday season. Sure, there is a lot of information online about fermenting, but a hands-on group workshop where you take home healthy foods beats an unread article on a Pinterest board any day.

The Societal Bird Cage


hat does it mean to be truly free? That question bothered me for years because I could never seem to find that “free” feeling everyone talked about. It got to the point where I locked myself in my room and lived through other people’s freedoms because I was so tired of trying to find my own. It’s quite tiring when you’re chasing something but you have no idea what it actually is, or what it actually feels like, in my case. One particular afternoon I was sitting, looking out my window and out of nowhere were hundreds of geese flying south for the Winter months. I live in Ontario so I always see flocks of geese, but never this many. It was surreal! They were flying so low I could see their feet! While listening to them honk at each other, a connection was made! I don’t know how, but it was almost like it was meant to be. Birds are the most free animals on this planet! They can fly wherever they want and when they are in flocks not only do they fly more efficiently, they empower each other!

The Way of the Shaman


Shamanic Journeying, Power & Healing The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism

January 27-28 February 24-25 March 17-18 When I compared myself to this goose/bird theory I had came up with I realized that, at that time, I wasn’t free at all and most of the human population isn’t either (atleast as of now we’re pretty far off) When we look at ourselves from the perspective of the bird we actually do the complete opposite of what is said to be “free.” We do not empower eachother at all, we isolate ourselves from the each other and symbolically, put ourselves in a ‘bird cage’ of what we think society wants from us. We are prisoners of society’s views and pressures and it separates all of us from becoming one harmonious flock of humans. We do not fly wherever we want because how could we? We are in a societal bird cage. Brooklyn.m.howard@gmail.com

WHAT IS THIS DISC ABOUT? The PolarAidTM disc is an antenna which captures and amplifies natural energy which we receive from the Universe as demonstrated by the inventor Tesla in 1899. Like any other living species, whether vegetal or animal, human beings are fed with this energy which, when aging, our body cells lose the capability to fully absorb. With the protocol defined by Dr. Tomić, we are now able to direct this amplified flow captured by PolarAidTM disc towards the body thus permitting it to restore its selfhealing mechanisms. Does the disc heal cancer? The PolarAidTM disc does not heal any disease but the disc provides the energy for the body to heal. This is why the disc is so effective in so many ways, because it is the body which heals.

How do I order the disc? On our website with a credit card. For assistance, please call 1-450-486-4888. Can I use more than one disc? Yes but one PolarAidTM disc is sufficient and the disc is good for life. Several people may share the same disc. What if the disc falls in water? The PolarAidTM disc is very durable. You sit on the disc or drop it on ceramic, the disc will still be 100% efficient, any damage being only cosmetic. Is there an expiry for the disc? No, natural energy captured by the PolarAidTM disc comes from the Universe which is an inexhaustible source.

Are all these testimonials true? Yes. All testimonials are as reported by users who wish to share their experience with the PolarAidTM disc to inspire other people with conditions similar to theirs.

How long is the delivery period? The PolarAidTM disc is shipped at 4:00 PM, Eastern time, on the same working day it is ordered, and delivered across Canada via Canada Post Expedited service with a tracking number.

What if I buy a disc and it does not fulfill my expectations? Anyone has the privilege to have his/her own expectations and to decide if they were met. If not, one may return the PolarAidTM disc in good condition and be refunded in accordance with our return policy.

Any danger and/or any contraindication with any other medication? No, the PolarAidTM disc provides extra natural bioenergy which is around us 24 hours a day but in helping to strengthen the body, it improves the body’s capability to benefit from the medication.

Dr. Dino Tomić currently works as a medical doc-

tor, specializing in gynecology and obstetrics. For the past 20 years, he has explored and experimented with alternative medicines such as quantum and bioresonance medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, and energy techniques.

TAO CALLIGRAPHY WELLNESS Shirley Cheung and Susan McNeely Certified Tao Calligraphy Practitioners

The ancient art of Chinese calligraphy distinguishes itself from other cultural arts because it emphasizes motion and is charged with dynamic life.

Tao Calligraphy is a unique style of calligraphy that combines the artistic beauty of Yi Bi Zi (fully cursive script, Oneness writing) with Tao light transmissions. Every Tao Calligraphy emits frequencies and vibrations that create a field of light that can remove blockages at all levels of the soul, heart, mind and body.
