I will offer a free talk entitled Awareness, Compassion and Transcendence to an international audience via a Skype conference call as my contribution to this wonderful initiative, the Worldwide Holistic Day. My talk will include a guided exercise – The Consciousness Practice – which can be used at any time, as a regular practice, in times of stress, illlness, emergency, or as a lifetime practice for re-centering and connecting with the essential center of being, the source of life and the divine love within.

Full details will be posted on my website, social media and newsletter. You may contact me if you would like to be added to my mailing or would like to participate on the day by sending a message to me at http://www.therapyandspirituality.com/contact-us.php

Lucrezia Pierro’s vow to develop a network of healers to teach, heal and ease suffering worldwide in response to “the cry for healing” shows just the kind of expanded vision – beyond the boundaries of partisanship, nationalism, and self-interest – that we need more of to expand and develop a worldwide consciousness and to usher in a spiritual revolution of heartfelt caring and spiritual awakening for humanity. I encourage you to support Lucrezia and WHD by offering a free event or participating in one on 02 Oct 2012.

Let us join together as one family on the anniversary of Gandhi’s birthday, 2 Oct 2012 and give and receive for the benefit of all beings, all life and collective awakening.

The Power of Service to Others

May 24, 2012

Service Is Its Own Reward

A true World Server strives to have a mind that is balanced at all times. This requires keen enthusiasm for disinterested, selfless service: Be kind to all. Love all. Serve all. Be generous and tolerant towards all. This is the way to purify both heart and mind, and to help forge the path to world enlightenment.
By performing acts of service, the heart is purified. Egoism, hatred, jealousy, the idea of superiority, and all similar qualities become purged and disappear; humility, pure love, sympathy, tolerance and mercy are developed in their place. The server comes to feel oneness and unity, in touch with all life.
The person who serves the world also serves the self. Only by first reforming oneself can the whole world become reformed. The greatest service that can be rendered is to impart knowledge of truth, as the basic cause of all human suffering is unconsciousness.
True service also purifies the mind, and can be a tool for self-knowledge. This practice requires non-attachment to outcome and that all actions be dedicated to the highest good, with the awareness that all of life is good.
When we give up ego and work merely for the sake of humanity, then even eating, walking, talking, sleeping, breathing and answering calls of nature become joyous activities. Great joy exists in approaching work this way because there is no personal investment in it.
How is this freedom accomplished? When we perform any action, it’s important to go inside and become centered. In this space of equanimity of mind, it is possible to understand the fundamental principles that govern all we do, and many of the outside forces become clearer and more manageable.
There is certainty in the practice of right work. Even a small amount of service to the community or to the poor brings forth its own rewards and advantages. Then, we will again be propelled to do some more good actions by the forces of our impressions of the original action. This is a key detail of the way that service evolves.
While the unconscious cannot conceive of doing work without some personal gain, the World Server attains inner spiritual strength and power by performing selfless motives and practices. Gradually, as we serve society, the glory and splendor of unselfish work is understood.
Synthesis is from
Science of Yoga, Volume 1: Karma Yoga

Commit to Service for our second WorldWide Holistic Day, Oct. 2nd. Commit to hold or attend a workshop, class in your community. When hearts and minds are joined for good, our points of light will illuminate the World!

Treatment for Chronic Pain that Works!

March 15, 2012

Chronic Pain is debilitating for mind, body and spirit. Chronic pain can be the result of disease such as fibromayalgia, or surgeries, or it can be the result of emotional or spiritual trauma. Whatever the root, it is difficult to deal with. Conventional medicine often deals with chronic pain by administering pain killers. Too often such treatment leads to addiction which only ultimately compounds the problem. Currently, I have a client with chronic pain syndrome. JJ’s pain is the result of multiple surgeries. Prescription medicine to control his pain left her an addict. Treatment for addiction has helped her dependence on prescription drugs and she has sought alternative treatment. She receives weekly sessions of acupuncture and Reiki. Initially, she was only able to get a few hours of relief. Now, she can almost manage the week. Because the acupuncture and Reiki have settled her anxiety and pain, she has begun to make other changes in her life. She now is able to exercise and is interested in her diet. As a result she is sleeping better and has lost some weight, both of which have helped to lesson her pain. Most importantly, her mind set has changed. She once reported she will always have to live with pain; now she looks forward to being pain free.
Below is information on a more holistic approach to chronic pain from EHow: Print this article

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is recurring pain that can be continuous or intermittent and lasts longer than six months. According to Prescription for Nutritional Healing, headaches, including migraines, as well as backache and arthritis qualify as chronic pain. Often, chronic pain can be better treated by holistic pain management.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing practice. At the core of acupuncture philosophy is the belief that chi, also known as life force or energy, can flow freely or can become blocked at points along meridians. Each meridian, or pathway, is associated with an organ. When chi flows freely, the person experiences wellness. When chi is blocked, different ailments can occur. Acupuncture uses a painless method incorporating needles. They are inserted at designated locations on the body. The ailment determines placement of the needles. Acupuncturists often recommend herbs to aid acupuncture’s healing effects.

Relief From Back Pain

Herbal remedies may be among the best-known holistic means to manage chronic pain. Used throughout the ages by cultures around the world, herbs can offer relief for myriad painful conditions. Some of the most popular herbal remedies include angelica, cramp bark, kava kava, rosemary and valerian root. These herbs treat cramps and muscle spasms. Tea can be made with catnip, licorice or wood betony, to name only three herbs, to ease nerve pain and tension. Capsaicin, found in cayenne pepper, can relieve rheumatoid arthritis and neuralgia, among other painful conditions. Butterbur is gaining attention for its effective treatment and prevention of migraine headaches. Seek the advice of an herbalist or an acupuncturist for guidance.

Massage is body work. A massage therapist manipulates muscles and soft tissues. The therapy can ease muscle pain, headaches and a variety of other chronically painful conditions. Massage allows muscles to relax and promotes lymphatic circulation, which reduces inflammation. Massage encourages blood flow through muscles and can aid sinus drainage. Massage is not appropriate for all people, however, especially those with vascular problems. The many forms of massage used to relieve chronic pain include deep tissue massage, neuromuscular massage, reflexology and shiatsu.

Hypnotherapists suggest suffering subjects into a positive state of mind. It creates relaxation, which is fertile territory for receptivity to positive suggestions. A hypnotherapist or a doctor provides a subject with suggestions that distract the mind from its focus on pain. Hypnosis can manage back and joint pain, migraines, and other types of chronic pain. Only use the services of a certified hypnotherapist.

BelArôme Holistic Health Centre Invites Community To Hope For Life Event

As a part of the 15th edition of the Montreal Journées de la Culture – Portes Ouvertes program and World Holistic Day, all residents of the Greater Montreal Community are invited to take part, on Oct. 1 and 2, 2011, in the free activities organized to promote natural health activities and bring the community together to send out wishes of hope and inspiration to those with chronic health issues.

BelArôme Holistic Health Centre, 6100 Monkland Ave. #200, has organized its free October community event around the theme of Hope For Life. On Sat., Oct 1, and Sunday, Oct 2, 2011, between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM, the practitioners will welcome their neighbours and ask each one to decorate a Square of Hope, which will be added to their Hope For Life Quilt before it makes its rounds to local chronic care facilities. All that is needed is a word of hope, a small prayer, a visual gesture of love, and a little creativity; the markers and quilt squares will be provided.

Under their little big top, on the hour, there will be free community yoga and guided meditation sessions. The focus of these sessions will be to send out healing wishes for ourselves and others in our community and in our world. Experience how great the gift of giving feels. There will also be refreshments and other surprises.
