Make Reflexology Part of Your Regular Health Routine
ave you ever had a pain in your neck or shoulder too painful to touch? Need a better way to handle stress and bring some relaxation back into your life? Look no further than your local Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist (RCRT). Reflexology is a holistic, natural, and non-invasive therapy for people of all ages. It is based on the principle that reflexes in a localized area can be mapped to other parts, glands, and organs of the body. Through the application of specific hand and thumb walking techniques on these reflexes, reflexology therapy can:
Unlike other therapies which manipulate bones or muscle tissues, Reflexology can provide much needed relief through working the body reflex that ails you on a part of the body that does not. Not to mention that it is often more affordable that other more evasive treatments. For optimal results, clients should visit a reflexology therapist regularly and integrate these treatments along with a balance diet and exercise into their health regime. To have a treatment plan designed especially for you and your health goals, consult a RCRT in your local area.
Reflexology helps to manage many common ailments such as: • musculo-skeletal pain; • insomnia; • anxiety; • stress; and • hormonal and digestive issues to name a few.
The Reflexology Association of Canada has been training and certifying Reflexology Therapists since 1976. It’s important that patients are treated by a skilled, qualified practitioner.

Concert for Hope, Healing, Peace and Reconciliation
hen Ottawa native Bradfield returns for his Heart of Light concert at St. Paul’s University on Thursday September 28, he brings to the stage an entire life of exploration of the heart. Part of the Ottawa Peace Festival, this event for hope, healing, peace and reconciliation at the quaint Mazenod Chapel is a unique evening of music for the Soul, presented with a passionate baritone voice, grand piano and Native American flute. Drawing from his huge repertoire, the concert will feature music from his “heart” trilogy, including meditative Buddhist mantras, uplifting new adaptations of sacred feminine anthems such as “Ave Maria” as well as introspective, poetic songs from his “Becoming” album. Inspired by his latest project “Heart of Gaia”, the Heart of Light concert includes a tribute to both Mother Earth Gaia and the First Nations women who have endured abuse, rape and violence; some even disappearing without a trace. During the event, multiple testimonies of indigenous women will honor the memories of all who suffered such traumas. From Heart of Gaia, Bradfield will perform his song “Truth Whisperers”, composed at the request of a medicine woman on behalf of her ancestors. The song opens our hearts to hear their murmurs in the wind, becoming their collective voices to bring justice and healing to all those affected Bradfield is an artist with a complete vision of his creative universe. Songwriter, arranger and producer, his 33 vocal and instrumental albums touch at once the spirituality of being and musical theater. His creations reveal a poetic approach, infused with therapeutic tones and imbued with universal harmony. Aspiring to raise the collective consciousness and devoted to the purity
of intention, the artist has devoted his entire life to the exploration of the heart, relying mainly on his intuition to guide us gently towards the Light of our greatest potential. Heart of Light concert is part of the promotional efforts for the fundraising of the Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution, in support of their local and international programs providing training and services for world peace and reconciliation.

Choose to Live an Intentional Life – a Inspirational Guide
hat does it mean to live intentionally? Living an intentional life is the opposite of living a life of chance with a lack of awareness. What are your longterm goals? Why did you decide to read this article? Why did you choose the foods that you did for your last meal? If you can’t answer these questions without giving it some thought, you’re not living intentionally.
Choose to live an intentional life: 1. Intentional living requires making decisions. You can’t have any intention without having made a decision first. I encourage you to sit down and choose a direction for your life. What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to have? What kind of life do you want to live? Make some choices and then choose your actions each day in accordance with those objectives. 2. Know your values and beliefs. Knowing your values and beliefs can make it easier to live intentionally. You might have the intention to live a life based on contribution, honesty, or love. Your belief that everyone should be able to read can guide your life. Giving your values and beliefs priority makes many of your formerly challenging decisions obvious. 3. Choose your habits. Many of your habits can seem to have developed on their own. It’s important to choose your habits. Habits can mask your intentions by removing the thought process from the equation. 4. Know your intentions for each day. You may have a broad intention of having financial freedom. A narrower intention might be to be debt-free. From there, you may have the intention of saving more money so you can pay down your debt faster. Your intention for today might be to avoid any spending that isn’t absolutely necessary. An intentional life creates more thought than an unintentional life. You must make conscious decisions and question your thoughts and actions. Seek to be more aware of your desires and choose your behaviors accordingly. Habits can be the bane of intentional living unless you chose your habits intentionally. Be mindful and take responsibility for your results, and you’ll find that more of your results please you.

Keeping the Doors Open
“The need to interact is deeply ingrained in our genetic code. So much so, that the absence of social connection triggers the same, primal alarm bells as hunger, thirst and physical pain.” - John Cacioppo (Professor, founder and director of the Centre for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience at the University of Chicago)
uman beings are not designed to be solitary; we naturally evolved to survive in communities or tribes. Yet, I frequently meet clients who experience a sense of loneliness in their lives. It is a sad predicament and a feeling difficult to overcome. Our mind is powerful and can provide us with good reasons to stay away, to keep our heart closed and to keep the doors of intimacy and tenderness shut. It feels safer, but ultimately lonely. Even within the field of spirituality we may be able to find good reasons to stay secluded, admittedly or not. Those closed doors can protect unhealed wounds and we can live an entire life carrying them. There is, however, a natural process of releasing resentment, hurt and, negativity. With the ability to be present, to experience love and kindness from a nonjudgemental perspective, we can honour our feelings and learn to access a deeper, freer part within us. Judgement is often at the base of those closed doors. We judge ourselves or others, and in doing so we close ourselves, emotionally become unavailable or simply stay aloof. I’ve realized this very principle in my own life. A subtle way to find reasons to close myself up to the world, experiencing shyness as a young woman and feeling helpless. I have learned that it is easier than I thought to add to my life a positive, warmer perspective. I realized that dropping judgements enabled me to be truly present,
receptive and more appreciative. Then the doors of kindness and love are able to stay calmly open. I was thinking recently about the transitory nature of life. Watching the news, a violence we can’t easily conceive of in our context, I saw a soldier aiming at another individual and shooting him. I saw a stranger fall. I thought that it can happen to anyone at any time, no matter what the cause of death is. All of a sudden our individual path and story here on earth as it is can come to a full stop. Thinking about this possibility during my meditation I could feel how trivial resentments are, how sad it is to live a life separate from others and it made me feel like opening my doors even wider. From that standpoint, nothing else matters. Love nourishes the soul, our own and that of others. Love heals the body and mind as it is of the essence. Contact us to book a session with Lynne.

Sacred Stalker: Part One
Ian Prattis everal decades ago I became aware that I had a stalker. I would glance over my shoulder and feel a distinct presence. The presence was a woman from the 18th century. This was made known to me by a shaman mentor – White Eagle Woman – who made it clear that I was mistaken. This was no stalker. The female entity from the past was a medicine woman from the American Southwest. She was trying to bring powerful medicine gifts through to me in the 21st century, but I had not learned how to release my logical and intellectual mind, and certainly did not possess the wisdom to receive. She had a name – Trailing Sky Six Feathers. Over time my stubborn resistance was no match for her determination. I ultimately surrendered to this Muse. I wrote a book about our journey – Trailing Sky Six Feathers: One Man’s Journey with His Muse. I learned that I had died in her arms in 1777 and she swore to find me in the future to complete my purpose. Through her insistence I learned how to reconfigure my understanding of time, place and consciousness. She refused to give up on how dense I was and through her insistence, karma was reversed, the internal battles ceased and I learned to navigate past and present life experiences over four centuries. The medicine gifts received from Trailing Sky during dream visions and shamanic journeys required that I nurture skills within me to use them wisely. I eventually remembered a clear mosaic of experiences stretching back to 1777. Past life memories

collide head on with the present. The relentless shadowing by this Muse brought understanding and purpose to overcome the darkness of my past. How did this all come about? Many years ago when I was a young professor at Carleton University, I split my time between Ottawa and the Hebrides in Scotland. I was trying to create an academic career and at the same time save a failing marriage. I was not doing a good job with either. I had a boat – a 26 foot clinker built vessel with an inboard engine to enter the dangerous surrounding sea with tourists on board. I must have been really insane or totally desperate – perhaps both! One disastrous journey sears my mind. It was from Eriskay, to the north, back to my home on the Island of Barra. An unanticipated storm and dense fog quickly blew up to gale force winds. Disaster loomed from every option that was available to my mind. I stood braced at the wheel of this small craft with four tourists huddled on board. Fear was no longer guiding me, as I muttered the 23rd Psalm – “I shall not want.” I remember a terrible chilling silence come over me along with utter helplessness. The boat navigated through a narrow gap in an offshore rock spur, and the wheel spinned to avoid the sharp spine of another rock ledge. I did not have that knowledge. I did not have that skill. They were not my hands on the wheel – something else had taken over as the boat slowly limped into the sheltered harbour after dark. I disembarked and walked to my house. I sat on the steps, as the storm ceased its fury and a crescent moon came out from the clouds. My reflections on the day were savage, yielding ugly truths I had long buried. I could take no credit for bringing the boat home safely. I thought of the furious sea as a piercing dirty grey, the colour of dying – just waiting for me. I knew I had to put an end to my recklessness on the sea and in life. This was not where I was to be; either in this relationship I was trying to save or the location. The stressful drain on time and energy to travel back and forth between Canada and the Hebrides was debilitating. It left me with zero energy for my life purpose. Instead I was choosing the graceless oblivion that alcohol and depression permit. This essay is about what I felt when writing the Trailing Sky Six Feathers book which is available for an author autograph at www.ianprattis.com/TrailingSky.html Also on Amazon and Barnes & Noble
Over 25 years experience
Doctor and Best-Selling Author Eben Alexander Launches His New Book at The Ottawa International Writers Festival (Ottawa, July 24, 2017) Millions were captivated by Dr. Eben Alexander’s first book, Proof of Heaven which retold his miraculous recovery from a coma and his journey beyond this world and an encounter with a super-physical existence. The book debuted at #1 on The New York Times Bestseller List where it remained in the Top 10 for more than a year. The neurosurgeon followed up with a second book, The Map of Heaven which explored humankind’s spiritual history and the progression of modern science. Now, his third book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness examines how we can tap into our greater mind and the power of the heart to facilitate enhancement of healing, relationships, creativity and guidance. The Ottawa International Writers Festival is pleased to announce that Dr. Alexander will be in Ottawa on Saturday, October 21, at Christ Church Cathedral for the Canadian launch of Living in a Mindful Universe. The afternoon session will feature Dr. Alexander sharing his new book, a power point and sound presentation, an audience question-and-answer and a book signing with his partner Karen Newell.. ‘’Karen Newell and I are honored that the Canadian launch of our new book will take place at the Ottawa International Writers Festival. We look forward to meeting everyone and sharing some of the revolutionary scientific revelations and experiential techniques described in the book. Personal experience is our greatest teacher, and pathways to greater knowing involve a journey into consciousness. Living in a Mindful Universe reveals details of my journey since my Near Death Experience, using each interaction as an opportunity to grow spiritually and to find new truth about the reality of the soul and the healing power of love’’ says Dr. Alexander Dr. Alexander has spent more than 25 years as an academic neurosurgeon, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. He
has personally dealt with patients suffering from severe alterations in their level of consciousness. Many patients were rendered comatose by trauma, brain tumors, ruptured aneurysms, infections or stroke. He thought he had a good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit. But in 2008 he spent a week in a coma after he contracted a rare and mysterious bacterial meningo-encephalitis. He emerged later to tell his incredible story of his near-death experience and encounter with an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of existence.
U.S. Doctor and Best-Selling Author Dr. Eben Alexander Coming to Ottawa International Writers Festival By Tony Lofaro When I read Dr. Eben Alexander first book, Proof of Heaven I was struck by his incredible story of recovery after being in a seven-day coma. He wrote about his experience with an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super physical existence. He also believed that God and the soul are real. And so do I. I lost two uncles within the span of seven months in 2012 and his book gave me comfort that life does exist beyond here on earth. And when I lost my beloved wife Gina in June 2014 I re-read his book and it touched me again and helped me in my grief. It gave me hope that one day I will be reunited with my wife. It is for those reasons and many others that I wanted to bring Dr. Alexander to Ottawa to hear his story and find out for myself if there is an after-life. I think we all want to know if God is real and whether there is a life beyond here. So, in conjunction with the Ottawa International Writers Festival, we are pleased to bring Dr. Alexander and his partner, Karen Newell to Ottawa Oct. 21 for the Canadian launch of his new book, Living in a Mindful Universe. Dr. Alexander will be speaking about his experiences and signing his new book. I hope people come to the event and also come with an open mind. Tickets are available through the Ottawa International Writers Festival website www.writersfestival.org The fall edition of the festival runs from Oct. 19-24. For Information please contact Neil Wilson at neil@ writersfestival.org or Tony Lofaro at 613-816-2718 or email@example.com
Freedom from Self-Punishment
by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. he healing journey requires self-responsible selfhonesty. “Do I punish myself?” may not be an easy inquiry, but it can free us. Self-punishment can be considered to be conscious intentional self-harm, but its driving force is in the subconscious ego personality - the emotional pain and mental body programs that cause us to act in unkind ways. Self-punishment can be an active form of aggression such as cutting or hitting. It’s also expressed in the many ways that we can deny ourselves joy and inner peace, such as berating self-criticism, or avoiding selfsupportive spiritual practices. Sometimes it’s carried over from experiences in other lives: we may have made a decision that caused many deaths, so we commit to ourselves to pay for our misdeeds. There are essentially two core reasons that we punish ourselves; feeling guilty for something that we have done that we know we should not have, or shame for who we are. These can feed each other: guilt can lead to a core negative self-perception, and in turn, we are apt to act in ways that devalue ourselves. Without healing the mental bondage memories from past traumas, we can attach to pain, suffering, disconnection, or victim consciousness. For example, one of my clients was forced to kill a person in a previous life, and while she too was a victim, her inability to forgive herself manifested as extensive physical pain in this incarnation. Then negative forces can continually enslave and parasitize our energy.
Free Yourself from Self-Punishment I specialize in clearing stubborn limiting patterns. We can bring you freedom with Divine clearing of your 12-dimensional blueprint and healing from the root cause. pain & dis-ease attachments emotional triggers traumas ancestry fears/phobias karma inorganic structures addiction patterns past life limiting mental programs

Keeping our pain is not required to learn from our experiences, it only contracts us. Placing restrictions on our joy now doesn’t balance the past, it tethers us to it. However, choosing to heal with self-forgiveness is the refusal to punish ourselves further. Only the loving God Within can free us. For the full article and healing support, visit www.

The Healing Power of Family/Systemic Constellations with Applied Mystical Principles
Dearest Friends, I am writing you as a friend of the community. Last year Diana Martinez came to Ottawa for a weekend presentation on Family Constellations with Applied Mystical Principles. By popular demand we invited her back this year. This exceptional workshop helps us expand our understanding of the nature of transformation, access deeper healing and practice subtle competencies. We will also be able to experience the trans-generational effects of our parents and ancestors in our lives and how to heal patterns they generate, creating blockages in our lives. This modality is one of the most effective and profound ways that I know to help us heal physically and emotionally and to enhance our relationships with the world. Diana studied closely with Bert Hellinger for over 10 years. Hellinger is a popular German psychotherapist who was able to develop a powerful technique to recover the order of love and our need to belong in ourselves and in our family and community.
For more information and to register contact Maya at: Ottawafamilyconstellation@gmail.com or contact me at email@example.com Diana Martinez is a psychotherapist with 14 years of experience working with individuals and groups. She has trained in multiple transformational disciplines including Gestalt group work, Family Constellations, studying directly with Bert Hellinger, Somatic body/mind work and Craniosacral & Body therapy based on the method developed by Francoise Mezieres. Diana holds a BA in International Relations, an MA in Humanities and a PhD in Philosophy and Ethics. She has studied Zen Meditation with Roshi Kiunan and Ana Maria Schlüter for the past 17 years and actively practices Zazen. For the past five years, Diana has been working with Thomas Hübl, a contemporary spiritual teacher. She has studied with Bert Hellinger for 10 years. Diana is a pioneer in the integration of Mystical Principles with Family Constellations as a means for deep personal and collective transformation.
This workshop will apply Mystical Principles with the main revelations of Bert Hellinger’s “Orders of Love” as a path of awakening into wholeness. Family Constellations help heal: Relationships Family entanglements Work issues Conflicts (inner and outer) Professional success Loneliness (need to belong) Separation or divorce (self or family) Sadness, unhappiness, lack of fulfillment Historical events that have impacted you or your family Loss of motivation and more I hope to see many of you there on October 28th and 29th at St Paul University. Lynne Cardinal

Hip Pain and Acupuncture Riverside Acupuncture
& Wellness Center
By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac
Steve (Eun Kyu) Ryu, R.TCMP, R.AC Pre-Med at McGill University (B.Sc.), Master Program of Acupuncture at Mercy College, NY (MPA)
ip pain is a common problem that can have a wide variety of causes. The exact location of the hip pain can usually provide clues as to the underlying cause. Problems with the hip joint itself typically cause pain on the inside of the hip or the groin. Problems with the muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround the hip joint will typically cause pain on the outside of the hip, upper thigh or outer buttock. Because the hip is of course connected to the rest of the body, hip pain can sometimes be caused by problems in other areas of the body, such as the lower back or knees, called referred pain. Acupuncture is a great option for pain and musculoskeletal problems and typically yields very positive results in all types of pain problems, both chronic and acute. In Chinese medicine (TCM) pain is often a due to an obstruction of the flow of qi-energy and blood throughout the body’s meridians or channels. Because qi-energy and blood circulation is what allows the body to perform its regular functions and also to heal when injured, any time the flow is blocked, problems

inevitably develop and pain occurs. Acupuncture focuses on removing these blockages to allow full circulation of qi-energy and blood through the body, resolving pain and weakness and allowing the area to function properly again. While musculo-skeletal problems like hip pain may be due to external causes such as a fall or an overuse injury, internal weaknesses of the body can complicate or aggravate a problem once it is there. Imbalances will contribute to weakness in the hip and make it more prone to injury, as well as more slow to heal. A good example of this is a deficiency of the kidneys, which

gradually weaken as we age. This weakness can make us more prone to lower back pain and hip fractures or pain because this area is very closely tied to the health of the kidneys. By improving overall health and correcting imbalances that have an influence on the hip, we can strengthen and improve the health of the hip area so that it functions better and is less prone to future injury down the road- all good news for those suffering from hip pain.

SRI CHINMOY: We become spiritual by emptying or silencing the mind that unconsciously cherishes fear, doubt and other negative thoughts. We can also become spiritual by purifying the heart. In a pure heart, God can manifest Himself with all His Radiance. When we empty the mind, we welcome God; but when we purify the heart, we actually place a throne for God inside our heart. Once we become spiritual, we do not feel the heavy burden of life. On the contrary, we feel that we have become like birds flying in the sky of Infinity and Immortality. Our life offers us real meaning, for it is a life of love and divinity. Before we become spiritual, we do not see or feel Godâ€™s loving Hand and evercompassionate Heart. But after we become spiritual we feel Godâ€™s guidance consciously and constantly in all our multifarious activities. An ordinary person wants to possess God; a spiritual person wants God to possess him. The ordinary person feels that if he gets God, then he will be able to lord it over the world; but a spiritual person feels that he always wants God to look after him and guide him. He feels that if he is possessed by God, then at every moment he can be of dedicated service to mankind, and that only by serving God in mankind will he have abiding satisfaction. Not by establishing an empire can man achieve abiding satisfaction, but only by self-awakening and selfgiving. The spiritual person knows this truth; therefore he wants to renounce the undivine in him such as fear, doubt, anxiety and worry; and embrace the divine in him, which is strength, courage, faith, the feeling of oneness and the sense of perfection. An ordinary person wants to discover peace in the world but he will not find satisfaction or peace of mind, no matter how favourable the outer conditions, because he does not know where to look or how to look for it. But a spiritual person knows that he can discover peace only in the inmost recesses of his own heart, and that whatever opposition or adverse circumstances he has to face, he will always have abundant peace and satisfaction because of his life of aspiration.

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, RRC, CRC ’ve written many articles over the past that touch on goal setting, taking action, overcoming fear and simply going for it. This seems to be a recurring theme that I discuss with clients while interacting with them. My message is simple: the only way to achieve your goals is to overcome inertia. Find out what’s preventing you from moving forward and then take the necessary steps to break free from it’s grip. This past summer I was talking with one of my sisters and she started telling me about the “funk” that her son was in. Being a teenager, his objective in life was to sleep as long as he could, party as often as he could and work the least amount of time possible. Although his career choice was to become a welder, he had taken his eye of the target (his goal) and was engaging in unsupportive behaviors. Simply put, he had lost his Praxis. Praxis is defined as the alignment of your thoughts with your actions to achieve your goals. After explaining to my sister how Praxis worked, I asked her to let me talk to my nephew which I did. Within three weeks of this discussion, he had found a welding job in another city, he had bought a car to move there and had found himself an apartment. I checked in on him a few weeks into his new job and

he was overwhelmed by how fast all of this had come together for him. I smiled! Then I congratulated him on his willingness to take action and whished him well going forward.

4 Simple Rules to Hypnotic Weight Loss
his is part one of a four part series on Hypnotic Weight Loss. You can use all of these four even without hypnosis, but combining the four protocols I’m going to share with you with hypnosis makes this an unbelievable way to release weight once and for all. Notice that I’m saying “release weight” instead of “weight loss,” because as our unconscious mind processes words, words have effect on our neurology. And when you think of the word loss, it’s, you know, you’ve lost your job, you’ve lost a loved one, you’ve lost a relationship, you’ve lost your cell phone. These are all very unpleasant situations. So when you think about weight loss in general, your unconscious mind, the bit that we’re working with, in actual fact doesn’t want to lose anything, because it figures losing things is bad. So I use the term “weight release” as much as I can remember, but even I sometimes slip up. So here are the four protocols, the four ways to lose weight easily and effectively that don’t involve going to the gym, having a crazy workout, a miracle supplement or pill, or any kind of crazy surgery, or hiring an expensive trainer, or expensive gym membership.
Number one. When you’re hungry, eat. Really simple, right? But I don’t mean head hungry, I don’t mean, “Oh, I’m bored right now,” or “I’m sad right now,” or “I’m excited right now,” or “I’m happy right now,” and you eat. No, no, no, it’s not an emotional thing. If the hunger comes from here, you got something you need to work on. I mean tummy hungry. When your tummy says I’m hungry, eat. Now, that might sound ridiculously simple. I had a client a couple of weeks ago, and we were working on weight loss, and I told her to do this. We had one session on a Saturday, the following session on Sunday, and I’m like, “Just eat when you are tummy hungry, not from a head hunger part.” So she came back the next day, and it was approximately 24 hours or so after, and I asked her, “How did it go?” and she goes, “I actually did not get hungry for the first 21 hours. I was not physically hungry.” So she didn’t eat. After 21 hours, her tummy told her in no uncertain terms, “Hey, I’m hungry, eat.” So she ate. But only eat when you’re tummy hungry, not head hungry. If there’s an emotional thing that’s going on, you’ve got some stuff that you need to work on, and hypnosis is great for that. - So protocol number 1 is when you’re hungry, tummy hungry, eat!
“I Can Make YouStop Stop Smoking in One Hour”Hour” “I Can Make You Smoking in One If you’re having trouble kicking the Evil Habit Dr. Luke Michael Howard can transform even the most ardent smoker into a healthy non-smoker IN JUST ONE HOUR.
Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD
Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis Complete Mind Therapy organization, is a Smoking Cessation Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 16 years now and has trained all over the world. After over a decade, Dr. Luke is still the youngest person
certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. Dr. Luke has been featured in all forms of media such as Tone Magazine, CTV Morning Live, and CBC Radio. He has developed an advanced hypnotherapy technique that turns weak willed smokers into empowered Non-Smokers in just one hour. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 95% success rate. This is incredible when you think that patches are only about 16% successful. We are so confident in the success of this treatment that we offer a free backup session for the remaining 5%. In fact, if after the session any one should need an extra session, it’s theirs, FREE OF CHARGE.” Dr. Luke explains, “This powerful breakthrough technique combines the latest discoveries in hypnosis and the new science of personal achievement known as Neuro Linguistic
Programming. This takes the power of hypnosis to a new level in helping people take back control of their lives.” Many local doctors are so impressed by the power of hypnosis that they are now referring many of their patients to Dr. Luke for his Accelerated Change Stop Smoking Programme. Dr. Luke says, “I am currently building a Doctors Referral Network to keep local GP’s informed of my developments and to keep them informed of their patients’ progress. Many celebrities, professional business people, nurses and housewives have benefited from stopping smoking with hypnosis, SO CAN YOU! The good news is that this incredible method of stopping smoking is available locally. The bad news there usually is a two or three week waiting list for an appointment – but even the medical profession believes it’s worth waiting for.
“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.

Awaken your Power of Faith! by Rev. Roxanne Buckle, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa
o matter what is happening “out there” in our finances, our relationships, our jobs or our health—there is within us, an incredible, awesome and powerful Divine ability called faith. As spiritual beings having a human experience, we can choose to activate our indwelling power of faith instead of doubt and darkness, lack and limitation. This ability to choose to believe in principle, in spiritual law, instead of the facts of the manifest realm, is a powerful shift in thinking for most people. Jesus walked on water to meet his disciples already departed in their boat. Peter wants to join him and also starts walking on water. Then he begins to doubt and starts sinking. Jesus says, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” This gospel story is intended to metaphysically demonstrate to us what happens when we are in doubt instead of faith. Doubt is faith misdirected. When our beliefs are on what we don’t want, we are exercising our faith in this direction, and bring about more of what we don’t want. All personal transformation, as well as social change, has happened because of our ability to apply faith when facing seemingly impossible conditions. We get to know spiritual law so that we can live more fully from our spiritual nature than our human nature. We don’t wait for outer circumstances to change first in order to have faith. It works the other way around. We look at life through our spiritual nature versus our human nature. Then life starts shifting to the better, powered by our faith.

All are Welcome! Beyond the impermanent and temporary experience of illness, financial difficulty, relationship challenges, shootings—lies the Divine ideas of health and wholeness, abundance, harmony and peace—spiritual principles that are permanent, unchanging and eternal. Only our human thinking directs our faith to the problems. Our higher, spiritual thinking directs our faith to the possibilities. In any given situation that appears challenging, ask yourself this: how am I to show up in this moment? And then move from a place in consciousness of lack and despair to the higher vibrational place of trust, of knowing. That’s faith and that’s bold spiritual living.

A Course in Miraculous Living
n recent months there has been a resurgence of and deepened interest in A Course in Miracles due to the publication of the Circle of Atonement’s Complete and Annotated Edition of the Course, edited by Circle founder Robert Perry. The “CE,” which has been more than ten years in the making, is based on the original handwritten notes of Helen Schucman, restoring extensive material (around 45,000 words) edited out of earlier editions. This previously unpublished material immensely clarifies how we can actually apply the Course’s teachings in a very personal and practical way. It establishes A Course in Miracles as a course in miracle working. The Complete and Annotated Edition includes helpful introductory material, extensive footnotes that clarify difficult passages, and cameo essays featuring guidance on how to apply the teachings in everyday life––how to learn to live a miraculous life and become a beacon of light and love in a dark world. The CE is a milestone in the history of A Course in Miracles: It is an important starting point for newcomers; it deepens current Course students’ understanding and experience; it will be a truly valuable resource for Course students for generations to come. For more information, visit the CE website: http://www.acim.circleofa.org Because of the overwhelming response to the Complete and Annotated Edition, the Circle of Atonement is establishing a new global online community called Course Companions, the goal of which will be to nurture a mature and practical approach to the study of A Course in Miracles for students around the world. Its focus will be to walk students through the Course itself, from beginning to end and provide valuable resources for the journey.
Free introduction to Bowenwork® therapy and training program being offered on September 22, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Village Clinic, 361 Churchill Ave in Westboro. RSVP is required by phone or email. Training program begins in November 2017.

Using this code (LOVE150), will entitle registrants to a discount on their membership fee. Robert will begin taking students through the Text of the Course in mid-September. He will offer daily commentaries supplemented by exercises, questions for reflection, and a daily practice suggestion. He will also teach a weekly class, in which he will review the readings of the week and answer questions. For those who would like a more personal group experience, there will also be the possibility of joining breakout groups led by Circle of Atonement-trained teachers. I will lead one of those groups here from Course Oasis for Ottawa and area students. I am greatly pleased to be part of this holy endeavour and look forward to building a greater sense of community here in the Ottawa area.

Mass Mindfulness Meditation for Peace Parliament Hill (Ottawa, Canada) Thursday September 21st, 2017, 12:00 - 1:15
odern society is in the midst of a “Mindful Revolution,” a mainstreaming of mindfulness practices that is being powered scientific research illuminating the health and cognitive benefits of the most common form of mindfulness that is sitting meditation. Mindfulness is also a secular practice that transcends all global wisdom traditions and is accessible to everyone. Mindfulness is about paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and without judgement. The practice of mindfulness meditation helps us develop the skill of paying attention with intention and kindness. It empowers individuals to live their best lives by improving their physical health and cultivating the qualities of compassion and common humanity. But mindfulness is far from an individual exercise. When we meditate, we also cultivate the qualities of compassion, empathy, inner peace and love for others. We bring these qualities to our relationships, in our treatment of others, and in the values we pass down to future generations. This is how mindfulness creates a more compassionate and peaceful world. When we hit a critical mass of people practising mindfulness we can tilt the course of mankind and achieve world peace. The rising popularity of mindfulness comes at a time of unprecedented global tensions and increasing separateness. Canada has stood firm in our commitment to diversity and inclusion but we are not immune to violent hatred and discrimination. There is no time like the present for Canadians to come together and show our commitment to an inclusive society and world that is built on our common humanity. We have the opportunity to do this on September 21st, 2017 when a Mass Mindfulness Meditation for Peace will take place on the lawns of Parliament Hill in Canada’s capital from 12:001:15pm.
September 21st is the UN’s International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) which falls under the theme Together for Peace to show support for refugees and migrants, and counter the global rise in xenophobia and discrimination. The guided meditation will centre on the themes inclusiveness, common humanity, and inner to outer peace. We are honoured that Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of modern mindfulness and world-renowned meditation teacher, writer and scientist, is making his first appearance in Ottawa as our very special guest at this timely gathering. You don’t need to be a meditator to participate and enjoy this historic gathering This gathering marks the launch of Mindfulness on the Hill, mass meditations that will take place over spring to summer 2018. It is the intention of Innerspace to also host modern and fun mindfulness meditation events across landmark Ottawa locations. For more information please visit: FB: www.facebook.com/Innerspacemindfulness/ Web: www.innerspacemindfulness.com Scheherzade van Aarle is the founder INNERSPACE MINDFULNESS and is dedicated to bringing mindfulness meditation to the masses with the goal of achieving world peace.

Humanics Sanctuary and Sculpture Park
n Sunday, July 2, 2017 the culmination of seven years of imagining a better world took place with the public launch of an extraordinary sculpture garden in an eastern corner of Ottawa, Canada. The Sanctuary, which was established by Dr. Ranjit Perera, a former Fulbright Scholar and retired senior civil servant who worked in international development, was visited by approximately 250 people. A steady stream of people from all walks of life wandered past the more than 60 sculptures lovingly placed throughout the beautiful nine acre ravine land on Old Montreal Road, in Cumberland, Ottawa. A volunteer at the event was moved by the response of many of those visiting whom, she said, “expressed amazement that something like this exists in Ottawa”. A Board Member for Humanics Institute, the non-profit organization founded by Dr. Perera, reported that “people loved the innovativeness of the sculptures, the beautiful walking paths but mostly the message the Sanctuary communicates regarding the universalness of the human experience.” Sculptures of the Buddha meditating, Hindu Gods and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount, for example, can be found, along with sculptures depicting such human fundamentals as ‘childhood wonder’, ‘evolution’, ‘friendship’, ‘the single mother’ and ‘music’. The sculptures are impressive; they are designed to be permanent fixtures and are made from granite or metal. Their creators are artists from as far away as India, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The launch was a festive occasion marked with speeches and, including messages of congratulations to by the Canadian Prime Minister, Premier of Ontario, Member of the Ontario Parliament, and Mayor of Ottawa. An informal ‘dialogue on essential values’ attracted a number of the participants to the tent and chairs that were set up on the large field adjacent to the ravine. The Board of Humanics Institute is continuing to develop its plans for the site, including building a conference centre and eventually a multi-faith temple aimed at bringing people together to explore themes of shared diversity and oneness. Dr. Perera, still hearty having already celebrated his 76th birthday, expressed his confidence that this unique facility will be visited by tens of thousands of Ottawans and tourists in the years to come. A teacher visiting the Garden was overheard to say that she would be bringing her classes there to “give them a unique experience to reflect on the meaning of life”. Those interested in supporting the Sanctuary are invited to become involved by volunteering time, becoming a supporting member, or by sponsoring a sculpture. In particular partners and donors for additional sculptures, including ones representing themes from Islam, Sikhism and Aboriginal spirituality are being actively sought. The Sanctuary and Sculpture Park is open Thursday to Monday 10:00am to 6:00pm. Admission is $5 for adults ($2.50 for students and seniors; children under 12 are free). Leashed dogs are welcome to accompany their humans in exploring the park. More information can be found on the Humanics website at www. humanicsinstitute.org

Tao Oneness Calligraphy for Health and Happiness
hinese calligraphy, a visual art that evolved from handwriting, is widely practiced and honoured in China and in the Chinese cultural sphere, including Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Vietnam. Its unique feature is that one can appreciate it without knowing the Chinese language. It is also respected as fine art alongside painting, poetry, dance, and music. The ultimate goal of Chinese calligraphy is to use seemingly lifeless dots and lines to create vivid pictures to connect the calligrapher’s personal feelings with reviewers. Chinese believe that just a single calligraphy can fully reveal the secrets of the writer’s outlook on life, for instance: character, experience and education. It is one of the most relaxing yet highly disciplined exercises for one’s physical and spiritual well-being. Yi Bi Zi is Oneness writing. It falls within the cursive script style. When an entire character or phrase is written in one continuous stroke without lifting the brush from the paper at all, that is called Yi Bi Zi. As a great Chinese calligraphy artist, Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha has been trained in Yi Bi Zi by Professor Li Qiu Yun and became her only lineage holder. Professor Li is recognized by the United Nations as one of the
world leading experts on the Chinese language. The over one hundred-year-old professor learned the art from the teacher of the last royal family in China. Tao Calligraphy is a unique style of Chinese calligraphy created by Master Sha. Yi Bi Zi is the foundation of Tao Calligraphy. Tao Calligraphy possesses the artistic beauty of Yi Bi Zi, but it is enhanced with Divine and Tao Source blessing power. This style of calligraphy has been developed to carry both visible beauty and invisible power to bless every aspect of your life. These days many people find their equilibrium through a ritual such as yoga or meditation. Tao Calligraphy can be used in the same way. Writing, tracing, chanting, and meditating with sacred Tao Calligraphies aligns the soul, heart, mind, and body as one and allows for the deepest healing and transformation to occur. Tao Calligraphies carry beautiful, positive messages that bring love, forgiveness, compassion and light to uplift us with a higher positive frequency and vibration. Accessible to all without any previous experience, the Tao Oneness Calligraphy Workshop for Beginners will provide you with the keys to experience balance and harmony, and to show your own creative expression. Go through a journey of self-discovery, realization, and healing of the blockages you have within yourself

“Nothing is incurable; God is the Greatest Physician” Bruno Groening (1906-1959)
xtraordinary healings occurred through Bruno Groening, particularly in the years 1949-1959 in Germany. Still today, because of his teaching, many healings of chronic illnesses, incurable diseases, addictions, anxiety, and so much more, have been reported worldwide. These healing reports have been carefully examined by doctors, psychologists and healing practitioners of the Medical Scientific Group of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends and documented using medical evidence by independent physicians. Bruno left behind the knowledge that a higher power exists that is the essence of life and how to absorb it. He called it the “Heilstrom”, or healing stream. Come join us to learn about Bruno Groening’s teaching, how to absorb the Heilstrom and listen to healed individuals who will report about their experiences.

Green Plantain Flour
onika Green Plantain Flour is flour made from unripe (green) plantain fruits. It is similar to banana flour but much more nutri- tious. It is ideal for baking delicious cakes, cookies, breads; and for making pancakes, fritters, etc. Green Plantain Flour is gluten-free, anti inflammatory and low glycemic. It is very nourishing for everyone, but especially for people living with irritable bowel syndrome, celiac, diabetes, and cardiovascular ailments. Green Plantain flour is very nutri- tious. It provides adequate levels of minerals such as iron which is essential for blood building, magnesium for bone health, and potassium noted for its cardiovascular-protective role. It also contains some protein, carbohy- drates and starch granules. The starch granules are called “resistant starch” or RS2. RS2 is known as the ‘new good carbs’.These are carbohydrates that cannot be broken down into sugar and glucose by the digestive enzymes. The carbohydrates will arrive undigested in the large intestine where they have many important health benefits. The resistant starch in unripe plantains contributes to a healthy intestinal flora. Since, RS2 cannot be broken down into glucose; this is advantageous for people who have to watch their sugar intake. Plantain flour also has a lot of fibre which is great for blood cleansing and bowel movements. Green Plantain flour has properties that prevent the formation of ulcers (gastric and peptic ulcers). It also contributes in their treatment and cure. Plantain flour has anti-diabetic properties, rejuvenates the pancreas and boosts insulin production. It boosts the immune system. Plantain enhances the libido; it has been used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and low sperm count. Green Plantain flour has a multi- plicity of uses because of its special botanical composition. It is a perfect replacement for wheat flour can be used for

Time to Embrace Our Differences Written by Alexis Nicol
ave you ever considered that our minds have been programmed with errant beliefs from generations past? From childhood we are taught about why we are so special, why we are better or different from someone else or we aren’t as good, etc. Blaming our parents or peers isn’t the answer for they too have been incorrectly impressed. Why is it that there is this belief that our colour dictates our beliefs and personalities? Yes our colour is a part of who we are, but it certainly doesn’t mean that any given one is more superior to another. Are we not all human beings? Do we not all come from the same origin of creation? It’s disheartening to me to hear and see how cruelly humanity separates themselves from one another. At this time in our history we are in dire need of open hearts and minds to thus ensure a more inclusive and embracing society. It’s a good time to review our perceptions and beliefs and discard those that no longer fit in an open and loving society. We were created with Love and it is this quality that will create a society that will flourish with creative ways to make a better world. Like a book, it’s necessary to look within to see the hidden beauty. The outside is only the beginning.
When it comes down to it we all are the most beautiful beings with infinite potential. We all want to be loved and to love. The most amazing feeling in existence is Love. This is a Love that is pure of heart and without judgement. I challenge you to take a moment the next time you are near someone you consider or have been brainwashed into believing is lesser or better than you, to share a nicety, be it a smile, a helping hand or a pleasant greeting. 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

EASE INTO FALL
Fall is a time where we get back into routine, a task not always easily accomplished. Here’s where essential oils really shine! Mornings can be challenging if there are school age children in the household. Diffusing essential oils that are uplifting and energizing are especially helpful. An added bonus is that kids start to associate the scents with preparing for the day. Some of my favourites are red grapefruit, spearmint and key lime. The latter smells like a green lollipop! You can blend a few scents together or use them separately.Let the kids participate in making the decision on which oils to diffuse. Daydreaming of summer doesn’t help one to focus on the tasks at hand. Rosemary has been used for centuries to help focus, concentration and memory. Basil is another favourite of mine, but you have to like the scent of licorice to truly embrace it. You can blend it with a stimulating oil like peppermint for homework drowsiness. For overstimulated minds, rosemary blends nicely with lavender. Speaking of overstimulation, sleep is crucial to good health. Reviewing the day’s events, worries and thinking about tomorrow are pretty typical problems
related to sleep. Many essential oils can help: lavender, marjoram, ylang ylang, vetiver, frankincense and valerian, to name a few. Again, they can be used individually or blended to make specialty scents. The immune system can be compromised for various reasons: exposure to more germs, lack of proper rest and stress can lead to ill health. Diffusing oils that are antibacterial, anti viral and/or anti microbial can all support the immune system. And guess what? You are probably using them already for some of the situations already listed! I would add thyme, manuka, oregano, lemon and tea tree to other oils chosen for different symptoms.

How much does your jaw suspension and balance affect your health??
any great physicians have studied how the jaws and the facial bones influence our total health. Sir William Osler taught the simple but profound concept that “The Mouth is the Mirror of all Disease.” Dr. A.B.Leeds, M.D., This great physician was the physician to President Roosevelt and later in his life Dr. Leeds suffered from head and neck pain and airway and speech dysfunction due to a “bad bite” and its far reaching airway consequences. An astute Dentist, Dr. William May, who was an expert in rebalancing the jaws and balancing the bite, saw him. Dr. William May simply changed his life. Dr. Leeds experienced firsthand a miraculous recovery from his head and neck pain and airway dysfunction. Dr. Leeds became a staunch advocate of medical- dental cooperation in resolving head and neck pain and airway syndromes. Here are some of his quotes: “This (correcting of the bite) is some of the greatest treatment of chronic pain symptoms that I have come across in over fifty years of medical practice.” “If this treatment is done at middle age, it should extend life at least ten years.” “When this treatment is fully researched and understood, it will be capable of revising every medical diagnosis, treatment procedure and prognosis in the medical world.” “This will be a focus around which all modalities in the medical world will begin to agree.” Another of the most astute observers was Dr. Harry Sicher, MD and Anatomist. He wrote a book called “Oral Anatomy, Bone and Bones.” One of his best quotes is “The occluding teeth may displace the mandible (jaw) forcing it into a position where joints and muscles are out of balance. Such displacement may in time have grave consequences for the total health of the masticatory organs.” This is not all that happens when the jaws mis-function. Here is what Dr. Don Moeller, MD and oral surgeon has to say today about this important medical topic. “There is significant research which supports the contention that the oral and maxillary apparatus (teeth and muscles of mastication) can exhibit systemic and neurological effects which are manifested far beyond the boundaries of simple mastication of the food we eat. Nightmares, headaches and sleep disruptions are easily shown to be modified by intraoral devices, which alter the dynamics of this masticatory system. “ Other great physicians have looked further into how jaw dysfunction due to loss of molar support can affect earaches, headaches and neck aches such as Dr. James Costen who developed the Costen Syndrome in 1934 and published 11 case histories illustrating his thesis: THE JAW-EAR CONNECTION is a condition that occurs when the TMJs are subjected to excess pressure through misalignment or malfunction of the Teeth, Muscles and Jaws.

DowntownDowntown and Alta Vista locations location Costen was the pioneer in alerting all medical and dental professionals to this condition. He demonstrated the fact that ear, head and neck pain could be eliminated by correcting an improper bite and removing excess pressure on the TMJs by “opening the bite” with intraoral splints. Dr. Costen “I instruct patients ..to replace the support that was lost when the molars were extracted, to relieve ear symptoms when the ear exam is negative.” Another well informed Ears, Nose, and Throat specialist who believed strongly in physiologic jaw balancing for maximizing overall health was Dr. Henry Ulhlemeyer. He said “If the mandible is not physiologically positioned all stress hormones are automatically stimulated; all muscles tense, blood pressure rises to overcome resistance, pulse quickens, respiration is shallow and loses efficiency. The body raises its blood sugar to fuel this emergency, releases adrenalin and increases the pain threshold. The gastrointestinal tract responds acutely… “In my opinion the mandible is the electrical control coordinator for the whole body i(n combination with the total chewing mechanism of teeth, periodontal tissues, and muscular assemblage through feedback to the brain). The mandible and all its associated muscles in proper physiologic relationship allow the body to relax refresh and replenish expended energies. The mandible has to be in a physiologically balanced relationship to make the total body work as one balanced unit“. Finally another ENT specialist, Dr. Harold Arlen, has also commented on jaw and ear dysfunction. Dr. H Arlen M.D. was an ENT specialist who worked with Dr. Harold Gelb DDS of New York City. Dr. Arlen. speaking about the connection between the Tensor Veli Palatini (TVP) muscle and jaw or facial trauma and the Trigeminal nerve says this “the TVP is the only muscle of the soft palate innervated by the Trigeminal nerve and the only muscle that functions to open the Eustachian tube. This is the key to the relationship between the jaw and ear dysfunction that is plaguing modern man, along with the deterioration of other parts of the jaw and the dental apparatus.” Well now you know how important you’re your jaws are to your health.

Traditional Hatha Yoga By Rupa
odern Yoga is often regarded as posture exercise. Traditional Yoga is a process of cultivating our body, mind and consciousness to understand and experience our inner spiritual nature, and let our Self resonate with the Divine for well-being and happiness. Through Yoga practice, skills and techniques can be mastered. The roots of Yoga are the Vedas which means “true or sacred knowledge”. As a baby, a child, a youth and an elder will eat different kinds of food, a spiritual mentor will give different guidance to different learners. For the same question, the spiritual mentor might give different answers based on that person’s situation. Thus, a complex spiritual knowledge system appears to us. And some teachings can be totally opposite. We might be bewildered to study immense spiritual texts by ourselves. To attend a Yoga teacher training is a way to receive guidance from an experienced spiritual practitioner. The Traditional Hatha Yoga teacher training program offered at Wishingtree Yoga focuses on the Yoga Tradition. The program includes:

Discoveries of Navel Gazing:
A Massage Therapist’s Journey
confess. I have been a navel gazer for a long time. Think about it: the navel sits right there in the centre of the human body; an area full of vital organs needed to break down our food into vitamins and minerals that will nourish us on all levels. How amazing! Yet hands-on care of the abdominals is almost never considered or requested in a regular massage treatment. How come? As it turns out, I went on a journey to find answers. In 2002, during my three year training for a Registered Massage Therapy Diploma, I remember feeling like there was more to discover about handson abdominal care than I was taught. In our practical courses, we learned only very basic relaxation and breathing techniques; useful, but not quite enough to satisfy my curiosity. In the program’s physiology courses we were taught that almost every blood cell, lymph fluid and spinal fluid system runs through the abdominal cavity. Congestion and tightness in the abdominal area can affect the flow and the ability for all of the internal organs and systems: the pulmonary system (breathing) digestive system (food digestions and elimination), the circulatory system (blood and lymphatics) and the reproductive system (uterus or the prostate). When I went into my own practice in 2006, I received visits from plenty of clients with pain in the mid- and lower back muscles. I knew that treating the abdominals would support the massage I was doing on the back, but I was left looking for more techniques to help. Then in 2010 I heard about The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy, taught in a one week intensive training program for Registered Massage Therapists in New Hampshire. Maybe this treatment to my massage therapy toolkit could address the missing pieces of my belly puzzling. Founded by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, DN, the Arvigo Institute teaches a series of gentle, non-invasive, visceral massage techniques that focus on the abdominal, back and hip areas of the body, useful for both men and women – finally, belly care for all! The techniques are based on repetition of light touch, not increasing physical pressure.
Once certified, I began exploring this new therapy with clients, adapting the techniques to meet the unique needs of each individual. Over time, the more treatment is received, the more their bodies had a chance to release the physical tension in the muscles and tissues surrounding the abdominal cavity and its’ internal organs, allowing them to function freely and maintain optimal health from within. In addition, this training is based on the understanding that each person’s ability to know and lovingly support themselves is the foundation to true health, in mind, body and energy. My services include supporting clients to sense/ feel and understand their own experiences as they undergo treatments – each person becomes their own expert and advocate. These co-created sessions in turn allow me to continue to adjust treatments according to in-the-moment needs. For clients who are interested (the keeners!) I can also offer take home self-care tools that they can use in between treatments – what a positive way to get to know the language of your own body! Maya Abdominal Therapy also compliments many other forms of alternative health care practices. I offer clients the option of working in cooperation with a Clinical Herbalist, as well as Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Naturopathic Doctors and/or other health care professionals they are already seeing. This creates a circle of holistic care on each person’s behalf, including guidance on lifestyle, exercise and diet. This full circle brings us back to the navel. At this point, my original curiosity feels satisfied and my belly feels fully nourished, so it can in turn nourish me back. Professionally, as a Registered Massage Therapist and Maya Abdominal Therapy Practitioner, I feel grateful to pay this nourishment forward as a healer who also continues to learn from my clients. And I am so fortunate to be a part of my clients’ offering their gifts to the world from a place of better health from within. Now, I turn it back over to you. I invite you to gaze into your own navel and ask your abdominals: What support do you need from me right now? Diana M Sheldrick, RMT www.mayatherapyinottawa.com

The Second Arrow by Philippe Leduc Introduction My name is Philippe Leduc, and I am from Canada. I have been living in a forest monastery outside Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand, since early April. I first encountered Tibetan Buddhism in India in the nineties, and in recent years, I have spent a few months in Theravada monasteries in Canada, Myanmar, and now Thailand. Every morning across Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Lao, Buddhist monks leave their monasteries on foot and go on alms round in the nearest villages to receive food from the villagers. Monks can’t touch money or cook for themselves. They depend on laypeople for their material well-being, and laypeople depend on the monks for their spiritual wellbeing. It has been this way since the time of the Buddha. As a layperson, I accompany Ajahn (teacher, in Thai) on Vindabat (alms round, in Thai) every morning. Ajahn is the only monk in my monastery, so he is also the abbot. He speaks excellent English and is quite open-minded, which makes for very good conversations. As we walk through the streets of the village, he receives food donations from various people who wait for him every morning, and I transfer the donations from his begging bowl to a large basket. The round lasts about an hour, and we usually talk about various things. This article came out of one of our conversations, and it is part of my blog, at www.philsdance.com. May 10 – One of Ajahn’s supporters is in a fairly advanced stage of kidney cancer. I’ve seen her come out of the house to offer food to the monk during Vindabat (alms round), but lately she has not been coming out. Instead, her daughter fills Ajahn on the latest news. Yesterday and today, Ajahn was invited (and me, as his attendant) inside the house to offer a blessing. Her husband and I knelt on the floor while Ajahn sat on a chair opposite her bed, from where she told him of her condition. Her face had a look of pain on it. Ajahn listened patiently and spoke a few words softly before intoning a prayer for her. We were in the house for no more than five minutes. When we resumed Vindabat, Ajahn seemed concerned, and explained that she was in a great deal of pain. But his concern wasn’t so much about the cancer as about the fact that she is not accepting her condition. He said she was angry at her cancer, and was fighting it. He said
she was causing a lot of avoidable suffering for herself, on top of the unavoidable pain of the disease itself. He said he has been trying to nudge her kindly in a direction of acceptance and peace, but it has not worked yet. In one of his teachings – the Sallatha Sutta –, the Buddha talks about the pain of the self-inflicted second arrow. The first arrow is what life throws at us, while the second is our reaction to the first. We have been shot, and we tell ourselves a story about the arrow, a story that basically says “This arrow should not have been shot.” This story is a second arrow, which can cause greater suffering than the first. It is anger, resistance, self-blame, etc., and it is a terminal obstacle to peace. From the Sutta: “Now, the well-instructed disciple of the noble ones, when touched with a feeling of pain, does not sorrow, grieve, or lament, does not beat his breast or become distraught. So he feels one pain: physical, but not mental. Just as if they were to shoot a man with an arrow and, right afterward, did not shoot him with another one, so that he would feel the pain of only one arrow. In the same way, when touched with a feeling of pain, the well-instructed disciple of the noble ones does not sorrow, grieve, or lament, does not beat his breast or become distraught. He feels one pain: physical, but not mental.” – Sallatha Sutta Ajahn said he hoped she would find some peace before she passed, but that this would only happen with acceptance. How strange, I thought, how much suffering we cause ourselves, despite being supposedly so intelligent. In fact, it seems to be the price of intelligence. I often see animals who are obviously in pain, but they don’t have a story about it. A three-legged dog will have as much fun as the other dogs, because he doesn’t lament the loss of his leg. A dog’s mind cannot produce second arrows, but human minds seem to specialize in fabricating them. In fact, I wonder if most of our suffering isn’t caused by the stories we tell ourselves about our lives, rather than by our lives themselves. June 4 – The lady passed away five days ago, and I attended her funeral today. The last time I saw her alive was a few days before she died. This morning, I asked Ajahn whether he thought she found some peace before passing, and he said for sure in the moment just before dying. He explained that when death comes, we have no choice but to let go. But the sooner we stop resisting, the sooner we can live in peace, he said.
Navigating Ethics and Compromise in Modern Budo
onsumer culture may oblige an ambitious Budo instructor to navigate ethical challenges and the dynamics of compromise. This applies particularly to anyone seeking financial gain from competitive martial arts; the most prolific facet of Budo. Contrary to widespread perceptions; public martial arts instruction is a fairly recent phenomenon. For illustrative purposes, I present the example of Okinawan Karate Jutsu, formerly called Te, Toudi and Kenpo. Prior to the transformative Meiji restoration of the mid-nineteenth century, all Japanese/ Okinawan martial arts training was the sole preserve of the aristocracy, military and civil law enforcement classes. The new term Budo gradually came to replace the older word Bujutsu; formerly used to describe elite combat arts and law enforcement tactics. We’re Okinawan Karate masters of the early 20th Century magically transported to a modern dojo; they would not likely recognize the activity before them as genuine martial art. Their concerns would extend beyond the very casual and public nature of the learning environment and they might well be puzzled about the instructors’ motives and philosophical beliefs. Questions of ethics and compromise might also arise in their minds upon noting the clever advertising and sales tactics. Increasingly, since ethics and compromise are governed by flexible interpretations; many teachers feel free to operate commercially behind bold advertising incorporating fluid interpretations of Buddhism and Taoism. This creates contradictions and cognitive dissonance because traditional Asian martial systems are rooted in profound spiritual and philosophical concepts, particularly; patience and the mindfulness of Zen Buddhism. The latter notions, while not antithetical to commercial success; tend to discourage those learners eager for rapid promotion and competitive domination. Therefore, excessive flexibility may blur the border between solid reality and commercial expediency. The subtle erosion of technical and ethical standards is eventually minimized by the considerable appeal of financial gain. Unfortunately, careful adherence to ancient spiritual philosophies may be perceived as eccentric or even foolish when such a practitioner is compared to one who employs expedient practices to create a chain of commercial schools along franchise lines. After considering these factors, it is still possible to realize an ethical profit as a Budo instructor if one educates students about the reality of martial arts and
the benefits of patient, methodical training. The best teachers are pleased to see students eagerly exploring the wider world of martial arts, including competition and public demonstrations. It is tempting to present one’s art as superior and comprehensive or even to discourage students from broadening their technical base through cross-training in other disciplines. This temptation is especially strong when one is financiallydependent on martial arts revenue and a well-developed “brand” that purports to answer every need. Finally, only genuine self-appraisal and and penetrating perception will defeat ego-driven distractions like envy and vanity. This is applies to all areas of human endeavour, but particularly those involving the intentional blending of solitary and interpersonal effort.

Quantum-Touch Therapy: Remembering Perfect Wellness
Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach, Certified Facilitator, Open Space Technology, and Small Group Processes s I practice my craft day after day, for over 20 years now, I’m always enthralled by how magnificent the human body is in remembering what perfect wellness means, and the innate capacity our bodies have in returning to that state of perfect health, as the space to do so is created. That’s what keeps me going and getting stronger and increasingly well year after year. Watching my clients change while on my massage table is observing miracles taking place daily, sometimes in small ways each time I work with them, but the result overall is truly magnificent. Who could imagine entering the office of an energy healer with the symptoms of spinal curvature, or a tumour, and having those symptoms either disappear completely following a session, or be considerably reduced, until following a number of sessions, they have totally disappeared and the pain or discomfort experienced with them has disappeared as well. How 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. 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.

How You View Your Lifestream Channelled by Lisa Virtue
our path through life can be regarded in this moment from an outside perspective. Imagine if you will, the perspective of Life’s Great Plan. Of an overall arching purpose greater than your perspective on life itself at this time. From this cosmic collaboration comes your essential being and your direction and purpose through this lifestream. Can you imagine the greater perspective utilizing your thread of experience as part of a quilt, if you will, a tapestry… Divine big picture? How you function in this life is dependent upon your role in the greater tapestry. So from a basic, simple contemplation, the experiences you live through, how you adapt, change, live, and express are the colour coating that is your thread. The richness and diversity are important. How you go about the richness and diversity is less important. That you feel, shift, react, change, grow and adapt is what colours. That is the focus of your experience here; your intention to colour your thread. All life experience gives you opportunities to create these colours. You are who you are at this time and you react how you react. Who you are in a different moment will paint with the colours of who you are at that time. Does the stimulus matter? Yes of course it has impact and importance to you as you live it. However, in our contemplation today recognize it is more the expression of your experience that is what you came here after. Here and now you have the ability to be in this way. You are able to create, to paint life in this unique human-
being-that-is-you fashion. What a brilliant opportunity, experience and choice this is. No other choice exists like it. You will have only this opportunity now to paint as you are now. Should you feel that your palette is filled with darker colours, value them not less than the brighter. See that they have as much importance. They add as much diversity and artistry to the greater cosmic creation. On a more personal level they are part of your impulse to shift and change and grow. To effectively create more diversity in your experiences. For who does not wish to end their suffering and find more joy? This is the great human experience of creation in play. It moves you forward into newness, and that newness has a different version of you in those moments creating new and different colours, painting from that new perspective. Do you see how we from the greater cosmic perspective thrill at everything you touch, see and experience? How you are so magnificent? You are a Master of the creative art of being that is you. Revered, celebrated for your particular artist’s unique perspective. So have today’s contemplation as an opportunity to regard your own choices, your life, your experience, in a slightly different manner. To hopefully assist in appreciation of your own self, life and experiences. You are loved, you are beautiful, you are Divine creation and creators all in one. With greatest of joy, in celebration of you all, The Divine Regarders of Your Art.
Lisa will be leading a new spiritual practice group for those interested in regularly gathering. For information on the new group and September events, visit her website at www.LisaVirtue.com
Lisa Virtue is a healer with many modalities in her toolkit. She connects with Spirit to tailor your time together exactly as you need it. To connect for an appointment call 613-2964271 or email Lisa@LisaVirtue.com

VOTRE SANTÉ ENTRE VOS MAINS ! Créé par Georges Lakhovsky et Nikola Tesla
« JE N’AI JAMAIS IMAGINÉ n’ai plus d’incontinence urinaire. La nuit Je n’ai pas eu un seul effet secondaire QUE CETTE CONDITION dernière, j’ai dormi de 22 h à 6 h sans après le traitement au laser. POUVAIT ÊTRE AMÉLIORÉE ! » avoir besoin d’aller aux toilettes. Dr Tomić souhaite partager avec vous aujourd’hui ce beau témoignage de Mme M.B. d’Edmonton, Alberta. « Dès mon jeune âge, j‘ai dû faire face à de nombreuses conditions de santé pénibles qui affectaient ma qualité de vie. Grâce à ma propre expérience et à l’expérience de personnes de mon entourage, j’ai appris que la sagesse intérieure qui m’avait ouvert au monde des alternatives, m’a aidé à gérer les limites de ma condition affectée par la dégénérescence et plus important, en me libérant de la douleur. Aujourd’hui, j’ai 84 ans et je me sens pleine d’énergie et de joie de vivre que je partage avec passion avec mes enfants et mes petits-enfants. Ce qui a particulièrement contribué à mon bienêtre et à l’amélioration de mon état de santé, c’est le disque PolarAidMC. Voici mon témoignage que j’aimerais partager afin qu’il inspire mes pairs et leur donne confiance dans leur réflexion sur la sagesse intérieure. J’ai acheté le disque PolarAidMC en janvier. Après quelques mois d’utilisation du disque PolarAidMC et surtout en traitant quotidiennement la zone pelvienne, je
Je ne pouvais pas imaginer que ma condition pouvait s’améliorer ainsi. Je suis âgée de 84 ans et habituellement en vieillissant les choses empirent plus qu’elles ne s’améliorent... À l’âge de 43 ans, j’ai subi une hystérectomie et on a dû rattacher ma vessie. Au cours des dernières années, je devais porter des couches car en me penchant ou en soulevant quelque chose, j’avais des pertes urinaires incontrôlées. Je ne voulais pas subir de nouvelle chirurgie car je connais des gens pour qui la chirurgie n’a pas aidé du tout. Trois mois plus tard, soit en avril, je suis allée faire vérifier ma tumeur de la glande thyroïde qui, à la surprise de mon médecin, avait diminué en taille. J’ai un glaucome et grâce aux suppléments que je prends, la pression de l’œil est stable depuis 3 ans. La semaine dernière, je suis allée pour un traitement au laser. On m’a informée qu’une vision floue, des maux de tête et une douleur aux yeux sont les effets secondaires auxquels je devais m’attendre. Quelques jours avant le traitement, j’ai commencé à appliquer le disque PolarAidMC sur mes yeux pendant quelques minutes et j’ai continué de le faire après le traitement.
Le Dr Dino Tomić pratique la gynécologie et l’obstétrique depuis plus de 20 ans. Il explore différentes possibilités de traitement avec des méthodes extérieures au domaine de la médecine classique, à savoir la médecine quantique, la biorésonance, l’homéopathie, l’acupuncture etSeptember les techniques énergétiques. 2017
Quand je ressens de la douleur au dos, j’applique le disque pendant 15 minutes et je suis de nouveau prête à faire mon jardin ! J’ai également acheté un disque PolarAidMC pour ma fille afin de l’aider à récupérer plus rapidement d’une chirurgie en gynécologie ce qu’elle a fait rapidement et très bien. Merci PolarAidMC pour la qualité de vie dont je bénéficie aujourd’hui. » Dr.Tomić : « C’est aujourd’hui scientifiquement prouvé que les troubles de santé résultent d’abord d’un manque d’énergie vitale naturelle dans notre corps et est la principale cause de maladies. Un des dispositifs les plus simples et les plus efficaces est le disque de polarisation PolarAidMC, invention du scientifique russe Georges Lakhovsky qui a travaillé avec Nikola Tesla. Ce petit appareil n’a pas besoin d’énergie électrique pour relever en peu de temps le flux d’énergie dans le corps et ainsi stimuler ses capacités d’auto-guérison. » Sans radiation ni magnétisme Sans date d’expiration Sans entretien

HEALTH AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!
Created by Georges Lakhovsky and Nikola Tesla
“I HAVE NEVER THOUGHT IT COULD BE IMPROVED!” Dr. Tomić is pleased to share with you this beautiful testimony from Mrs M.B. from Edmonton, Alberta. “From an early age I had to deal with many painful and quality of life limiting conditions. Through my own experience and experience of dear people around me, I learned that inner wisdom that opened me to the world of alternatives helped me to manage my conditions in limiting further degeneration and most important freeing me from the pain. Today I am 84 and I feel re-energized and full of joy for life which I passionately share with my children and my grandchildren. What particularly contributed to my well-being and improvement of my health is the PolarAidTM disc and here is my testimonial which I would love to share so it may inspire my peers to trust their inner wisdom’s reflection on it. I purchased the PolarAidTM disc in January. After a few months of using the PolarAidTM disc and especially treating
the pelvic area daily, I have no more urinary incontinence. Last night I slept from 10pm to 6am and no need to go to the washroom. I could not believe that it could ever improve. I am 84 years old and usually in aging, things go more downhill than uphill. When I was 43, I had a hysterectomy and they had to fix my bladder. The last couple of years I had to wear pads, as in bending or in lifting, the urine was leaking without control. I did not want to have another surgery as I know people whom surgery did not help at all. Three months later, in April, I went to check my thyroid gland tumor which to my doctor’s surprise reduced in size. I also have glaucoma and thanks to supplements which I take for eye pressure have been stable for 3 years. Last week I went for the laser treatment and was told that blurred vision, headache and eye pain are the side effects to be expected. A few days before the treatment, I started to apply the PolarAidTM disc on my eyes for a couple of minutes and I did the same after the treatment. I did not have a single side effect after the laser treatment.
Dr. Dino Tomić currently works as a medical doctor,
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. September 2017
When I feel back pain, I apply the disc for 15 minutes and I am ready to work in the garden! I purchased a PolarAidTM disc for my daughter to help her to recover faster from a gynecological surgery which indeed she did quickly and very well. Thank you PolarAidTM for the quality of life I enjoy today.” Dr. Tomić: “It is today scientifically proven that health disorders occur first at the energy level and then materialize as a physical illness. Hence the lack of or poor flow of vital natural energy through our bodies is the main cause of most diseases. One of the simplest and most effective devices which impresses me is PolarAidTM, the invention of the Russian scientist Georges Lakhovsky who worked with Nikola Tesla. This small device needs no electric power to raise in a short time, the energy flow in your body, hence stimulating its self-healing capabilities.ˮ No radiation or magnetism. No expiry date.
