November 27, 2011 - London Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil.
He went to graduate school at Boston College, became a social worker, got married, raised four children, got elected to the Clinton Board of Selectmen and over the past years, has watched three wars unfold on his television screen.
In my head I was always able to tell myself that I was fine and that I didn’t need to do anything about it. Believe me I was skeptical at first but I gave it a shot and put in the work and it more than paid off. Being the age you are and the college environment you were in, was a challenge all on its own.
Father Gabriel Amorth, who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms in the past 25 years after being appointed by the late Pope John Paul II, surprised delegates at a conference by revealing his dislike for yoga and 'Harry Potter'.
Dziokonski, who was a Navy corpsman assigned to a Marine Corps rifle company in Vietnam and a recipient of two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with a Combat "V," considers himself a strong man, a self-described curmudgeon.
I was always on the move going to practice grabbing a quick snack, then off to play basketball or hockey in the driveway. My blood pressure medication has been reduced by 75% and I anticipate I’ll be off of it soon.
Then I was told I had high blood pressure, again I wasn’t as nervous because it runs in my family, so I told myself it wasn’t due to being overweight, it’s in my genes.
When I look back at it now, losing 75 pounds initially seemed like climbing Mount Everest, now it seems like it was only a bunny hill.
So when he found himself at the top of a mountain crying over a dead butterfly, he knew he needed help. I had an auto-immune blood disorder, acute atrial fibrillation, sleep apnea, high blood pressure.
But it wasn’t until I started hearing that if I continued down this destructive path I would end up with a lot more problems and could potentially not live as long as my friends.
I started in early July and told myself I would give it my all until I got back to college. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying. And he found relief and release in a yoga program designed specifically for war veterans called Yoga Warriors International. I woke up and realized that I’m 22 years old and I need a change, I didn’t want to live this life any longer. Cimini, the founding director of Central Mass Yoga and Wellness in West Boylston, designed to alleviate the symptoms of combat stress or post-traumatic stress disorder. I was on all kinds of medication and had to undergo three Cardiac ablations to try to correct the atrial fib. I started working out and was able to run for miles without feeling like I was going to die. I felt confident and it showed in social situations and it most definitely made my last semester at college significantly better. Although today it has felt like a bunny hill, to others it very well may be Mount Everest with the same outlook you had that first day.. Speaking on the subject of People And Religion at a fringe event at the Umbria Film Festival in Terni, Father Amorth spoke of his distaste for JK Rowling's young wizard.
The doctors kept telling me I needed to lose weight, if I wanted to feel better but no one offered any help.
I have currently lost somewhere in the ball park of 75 pounds and only have about 25 more to go until I’m done. In Harry Potter the Devil is at work in a cunning and crafty way, he is using his extraordinary powers of magic and evil," he said. In pants I went down almost 4 sizes and am now wearing clothes I had only dreamed about being able to wear one day.
He studies each and everyone of us and our tendencies towards good and evil and then he tempts us.
With PTSD, your emotions are ruled by what happened 20 or 30 years ago." Dziokonski originally took yoga to gain more flexibility. As he practiced yoga, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were unfolding a world away, but were hitting close to home for Dziokonski.
Things changed for me when a co-worker was bold enough to tell me about her success with Dr. This is not the first time that the 85-year-old has raised eyebrows with his forthright views, as last year he had said that the ongoing child sex scandals rocking the Catholic Church were evidence that "the Devil was at work in the Vatican".
The war was in our living room," Dziokonski said, recalling the firefights that were being broadcast on the nightly news.
I thought, “Do I really want to live with a gastric bypass?” The answer was emphatically, NO! In fact, Dziokonski had asked her to teach a class at the Worcester Veterans Center, which fellow veterans later decided to continue.
During the consult, I was shown all the options that I could choose to reach my goals, but the most comforting thing were the words “we’ll be with you every step of the way.” Somehow, that gave me the confidence that I could do this and finally see real results. In addition, she is the co-author of a study that will appear in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, "The Effects of Sensory Enhanced Hatha Yoga on Symptoms of Combat Stress in Deployed Military Personnel." The study was done by Maj. Jon Greuel, an Air Force instructor pilot, in Kirkuk, Iraq, from November 2008 to November 2009 in collaboration with Cimini.
She is also working with Worcester State University to study the effect of the Yoga Warrior program on military students at the university. Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn is one of the local studios offering the Yoga Warriors class with a certified instructor. Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn began offering a Yoga Warriors class in September, and is open to all veterans and active-duty military personnel.
Dziokonski, who regularly attends a Thursday morning Yoga Warriors session, said yoga has returned to him a sense of calm, and has improved his sleep. Many Vietnam veterans are enrolled in Yoga Warriors, and also some World War II veterans, and now Iraq War veterans. Dziokonski and Cimini said the emotional impact the war has on returning veterans may not become evident until months or years later.
