Body Clock

by Milos Bang

Most of Eastern Philosophy and Medicine comes from observing Nature and the Universe. Ancient Chinese realized early that most things in Nature are cyclical and by observing the human body’s patterns, established that our own energy (Qi) also moves on daily and on annual cycles.

Fat makes me happy.

If you haven’t noticed, the low-fat era has not only coincided with a tremendous surge in obesity and diabetes, but also depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Seldom do we consider that the root cause of our mood issues is literally on our plates...

Editor's Note: In this interesting video, Dr Maryam Mahanian discussion single Chinese herbs and their various uses. The video was shot in a traditional Chinese herb shop (The Sunny Day Herb Shop) in Vancouver, Canada.

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Tom Cowan, PhD

These weeks around the winter solstice are undoubtedly the most nostalgic season of the year. (Except for maybe summer.)  The trappings of this season remind us of all the trappings from previous years:  holiday songs, candles, trees, lights, ornaments, tinsel, gifts, wreathes, and the cookies...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanic experiences in non-ordinary reality happen outside of linear time and ordinary space. Tom Cowan brings that understanding of existence into the cyclical realm of the feelings that many of us often have around the many holidays associated with the winter Solstice. Some feelings and memories may be wonderful, or… not so much, but whatever they are, we can become more self aware of ourselves and our relationship with the rest of the natural world by paying attention to them. Learning from the past is crucial to a more conscious Now and Future.

 

Shamanism

You may be surprised to hear that meditation should be effortless, that no striving or concentration is needed. I know I was. When I first became interested in meditation, back in the mid-sixties, I was repeatedly told that it took great mental discipline and many years of practice...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski:  Peter talks about learning meditation by letting it rest in the experience therefore taking away the striving, judgements and idea that we need to achieve something.

 

Meditation


 

Editor´s Note from Lexi Yoga: With the holiday season coming soon, it's easy to neglect our diet and healthy lifestyle since we'll be surrounded by tempting food and treats. Here are some yoga postures that you can practice at home to help keep you slim for the holiday season.

 

Yoga


by Brian Critchley

Now that the holiday season is here I get to enjoy one of my favorite pastimes. I'm not referring to exchanging gifts or singing festive songs, but instead to a fun game I like to call "Find the Hidden Meat in that Holiday Dish!"...

 

 

 

 

Healing Recipes

Specifically targeted injury massage helps soft-tissue injuries (such as muscle pulls and strains, tendonitis, ligament sprains, and whiplash) heal faster. Massage reduces spasm, pain, swelling, and formation of excess scar tissue. Massage also breaks up excess scar tissue and adhesions (stuck together tissue) that weaken muscles and contribute to further injury...

 

Editor's Note: Former Washington state Massage Therapist, Carol Wiley, writes a very informative and clear article regarding massage when a person suffers an injury.

 

Massage & Bodywork


by Tina Marcantel, NMD

Most women are very concerned about breast health, and particularly about avoiding breast cancer. It's certainly an important issue to address because, "Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. Breast cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women...

 

Editor's Note: One more great reason to stick with that exercise routine! Just think of articles like these during those times when the motivation gets low.

 

Naturopathy


 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: 90 percent of Christmas trees are grown with some sort of pesticide. Might be time to consider going organic on something that will be the centerpiece of the home for the holidays.

 

Organic Living


by Michael Williams, PhD,
Co-Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

1. Be present: Before you begin telling your story, take time to be present with your audience. Smile, make eye contact, say hello to a few people, and thank them for coming. Others who see this will feel you’re actually a friendly human being. Feel the energy in the room. Remember, the audience wants you to do well. Tap into that energy. Introduce yourself. Take the time to create the space in which you will deliver the story. Pace it out, get a feel of it, make it yours. Connect with your breathing. Listen . . . then begin. Commit to the story and have fun. Let the story tell you.

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: As a storyteller, people often assume I’m an extrovert who loves getting up in front of people and telling stories. I do. But that doesn’t mean I’m not nervous. The truth is, I’m an introvert and not entirely comfortable being in front of large groups of people. But I love sharing stories with others. And thanks to some techniques, some sound advice, and lots of practice, I can now stand up in front of an audience and deliver my stories and actually enjoy the experience.

In what follows, I share some reflections gathered over the years as a storyteller and story coach. Some were passed on to me by some very wise mentors and coaches and others have come about through trial and error. But over the years, I’ve found them to be 5 sure-fire ways to tell a compelling story. I hope you will too. All the best on your journey to becoming the storyteller you want to be. Feel free to e-mail me with your story.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling

As the Holidays come around again, most of us will be pulling out our fancier dresses and suits, our wools and dry-clean “only” clothing. But did you know that most clothes (at least for us girls) that demand we only dry clean them, really don’t need anything more than gentle hand or machine washing? Granted, a good men’s wool suit can be hand washed, but handing it over to someone else to clean and press is so much easier...
