"My introduction to volunteer work as a homeopath came from my clinical homeopathic work in Calcutta India under the guidance of Dr. S.K. Banerjea. He runs many slum clinics for the poor and also a mobile homeopathic bus that makes stops in extremely poor areas of Calcutta. I was in Calcutta with Banerjea for about a month. We went to all the slum clinics in the homeopathic pharmacy bus. It was loaded with homeopaths and remedies. The door would swing open in the back and patients would line up for hours in the heat..."
Editor´s Note: After reading Gina's interview, I am so proud to be a part of the community of homeopaths. The determination that she demonstrated to provide homeopathic aid to the people of Indonesia--both in direct treatment and teaching them how to self-prescribe for acute ailments--is astounding. A shining example of the empowering ability of Homeopathy and the dedication of the homeopathic profession!

Organic is an important ingredient in my son's life. life. Born with Down sydrome, he is an extra sensitive digestive system. I try to keep the use and exposure of conventional, non-organic food and subtances out of our diet and reach. Though very challenging to have every bite of food that goes into his mouth be organic, I try to buy as much local and organic as possible...

Have you ever had a client during the pre-interview try and hold back tears? Some people exhibit a life time of holding back tears. Sometimes they feel as it it isn’t mature to cry, or they should be stronger or it isn’t manly. Why encourage any tears in your pre-interview or in your hypnosis session?
I let my clients know a few facts about tears...

1. What was the inspiration for Sensory Delight?
Drawn from my personal experience of living with Tourette syndrome, Sensory Delight marks the professional development from my Bachelor of Fine Art Honours work ‘Sensory Overload...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I LOVE Bliss Cavanagh's story! As both an art therapist and an artist, I view her use of art and the creative process to deal with her Tourette syndrome, as a profound validation of the power of art to heal and enlighten. Her story is a perfect example of mythologist Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey - a descent to her deeper self, her return bearing gifts and knowledge of benefit to both herself and the wider community. Bliss's transformation via art is also a story of self-acceptance, of learning to use and work with her Tourrette's rather than continually trying to 'fix' herself of something that has emerged, via her art, as her greatest gift.

If I have a camera in my hand, I invariably get in very close to the subject. The personal space is invaded and there is a connection between myself and what I am investigating – with my camera lens, or my own eyes. “Up close and personal” is how I like to see the world - to look closer and deeper...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: The recently opened gallery, Art Studios Cooperative, in Gosford NSW, renews my faith in art and in artists. It's the type of art that I, personally, admire - art that is of a high quality, technically masterful, art that has depth, where the translation from concept to actual artwork actually works. And yes, it's vastly different from the art that originates in an art therapy session or art that is done wholly and solely AS therapy. What it does have in common, is that capacity of art to to work with symbols to engage the unconscious and thereby to clarify, to make clear our thinking, our perspective, to go more deeply into ourselves and to return with the gifts of that journey.

with Anne Schadde by Mareen Muckenheim
More than 20 years of practice have taught me certainly that not much is in our power. And still, I have seen patients making quantum leaps in some cases. This was mostly possible when the remedy had been worked out of the depth of the unconscious. Now, with the new case-taking methods we are much closer to C. G. Jung‘s ideas, because with the new case-taking method the patient has to work hard to push on the gate of the unconscious and the process is not a constant mental one anymore...
