Catriona Mc Cormack specialises in BACK CONDITIONS and have had great success over the years with clients who have had chronic conditions and had no long-term success!
Susanne Giles: Accountant “My sessions with Catriona has thought me how to move myself out of a stress inflicted life.
Release tension and treat stress, it works on the areas of the body most affected by tension – the shoulders, upper back, neck and head.

DC: You know I’ve had on my radio show fortunately some of the greatest minds, academic minds in the world of neuroscience and also in the world of philosophy and consciousness, no one yet has explained to me that when I close my eyes and I imagine a rose or a picture of a red rose or a sunset on the ocean where that picture is? RL: Yea well we were actually evolved as monkeys in the forest trees that collect fruit and berries.
RL: Yes, I think the whole issue here is that, that space and time are tools of the mind that are ways of us putting things together. RL: So everything all the way from the Big Bang to the edges of the universe all that is simply an extrapolation the spatial-temporal logic of consciousness.

Article in the Independent Newspaper about the Benefits of Yoga Therapy with Catriona Mc Cormack can be found here… About Catriona Mc Cormack I founded Yoga Ireland 18 years ago with the intention of teaching Yoga to people because of the amazing curative results it had for mepersonally.
I could hardly walk and doctors both in Ireland and the States said that I would most definitely need surgery.
I had a chronic back condition and I am now pain free and more mobile than I ever thought possible” If you would to enquire further or book an appointment for you, a family member or friend please just contact us.
So my imagination says that the day will come when you’ll be able to take perhaps cells from your own skin and then you know derive stem cells as you have already done and inject to replace any organ in the body that is damaged. We’re going to come to that but getting back to your field which is also tissue engineering. It is almost unimaginable what this might be in say two, three decades, or a century from now.
Lanza is saying first of all is that the universe is so fine tuned with certain universal constants that if there was even a slight deviation from those constants we, you and I as biological organisms would not exist.
And as you do point out there’s a long list of traits all the way from atoms to stars that make everything since the Big Bang to the present time appear as though it was tailor made for us. I experience that picture subjectively in my imagination or I can think of my mother and see her face. You know we think that space and time are these hard, cold objects but if you wave your hand through the air and you remove everything what’s left? But totally not in a way even caring to look at the mystery of consciousness which remains a mystery.
The book is called Consciousness Explained and many people say, they nickname it Consciousness Ignored. Basically what you’re saying is that our brain which is encased in a bony skull has no experience of a so-called outside world.
So when you talk about the objects you see and indeed that would include the brain and neurons you’re already dealing with a reconstruction engineered by your mind. So if you were to say that I’m standing here in a room on this continent on this earth going around the sun. Actually there was some debate in physics in the early days that these probability waves were waves of material. So, and again I might be extrapolating a little bit too much here because what I’m about to say violates everything neuroscientists say. I read a statement of Stephen Hawking where he said that God not only plays dice with the universe, he frequently throws the dice where you will not find it. Yoga therapy aims to place the body in a position of self healing with the help of a therapist. I will then take you though a full range of movements and design a tailor-made session for you to do daily which will last no more than 10-15minutes.Your follow up sessions will give you the opportunity to ask questions and we will work together to move you to a place of Balance and Well-Being. We’ve also gotten our research that was published where we show that these cells actually the same human cells we would have actually used in patients when you use them in animals you can actually cut the death rate after a heart attack in half. It’s absolutely within the realm of reality probably within the lifetime of most of the listeners to this program. What you just said about stem cells and also in the near future nanobots or nanotechnology which can kind of in a sense move atoms around will probably make it possible to just about repair any organ or replace any organ in the body so that theoretically what you’re saying is that one could probably live indefinitely.
So these are cells that are very smart so that as you suggest by simply injecting these cells they know where to go in the body and repair damage.
So for instance if the Big Bang had just been one part in a million more powerful the cosmos would have blown out too fast for stars and worlds to form. That experience is not in my brain and you know my brain shows firing of electromagnetic impulses in synaptic networks but now as you point out in your book as well we can look inside the brain through positron emission tomography or MRI’s. Why is it so difficult for people to imagine that when a honeybee looks at a flower it doesn’t see the same flower as you and I see because it’s sensing ultraviolet and not the usual wavelengths that you and I see? You know in that sense the world, the way we see it is very much like a chipmunk or squirrel. The brain cells respond to things like pH, electrolytes, our body temperate, hormones, and so forth and ultimately all this activity is translated into ionic shifts across neural cell membranes and somehow mysteriously gives us the experience of color and sound and shape and texture and smell, not in the neurons but in our consciousness. So everything that you experience in space and time is simply your way of understanding how everything is put together.

If continue extrapolating that logic to its ultimate extreme you end up with the known universe. Now we know from mathematics and from the world of quantum mechanics is that as we go a little bit deeper into the sub-atomic world what we call electrons for example are really probability clouds that are hovering around a nucleus which is also a probability cloud.
So I ask a person to, to ask them a simple question like what did you have for dinner last night and they might say I had spaghetti and meatballs. I think it’s a very different concept for people to fathom and to understand but let me add some teeth to this. We know meditation is a great tool to find peace and balance amid our hectic lives—that’s why we enjoy our practice. You will receive a Tailor-made session specifically for you to work from at home to help your progress and healing.
We could actually restore the blood flow to limbs that would otherwise would have have to be amputated to completely normal in a month. In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering you can actually grow up entire organs, so as you suggest that sometime in the future you get in an auto accident and lose your kidney, we’d simply take a few skin cells and grow you up a new kidney. Lanza is that some of these things that we have been talking about are in our lifetime and in fact as we begin to understand how we extend our lifespan then we may actually one day glimpse even the more advanced technologies that Dr. Amazingly when you add life and consciousness to the equation you can actually explain some of the biggest puzzles of science. In fact you’re also saying that the entire history of the universe from the Big Bang to the moment that consciousness appeared is now an imagined history. The squirrel opens his eyes and the acorn is just miraculously there and he grabs it and he scurries up the tree without any further thought, but we humans are really the same. But it’s really not clear how information that is processed of internal states by the brain is translated into sound, sight, taste, and smell which gives us the experience of the outside world. So again even when you talk about a neuron or a brain cell you’re already now in the external spatial-temporal world. Although difficult to conceptualize this, this probability cloud defines the statistical likelihood of a space time event.
So for instance I’m sure everything listening is familiar with the famous two-hole experiment. So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we’ll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow. In fact we think they might be able to reverse the progression of atherosclerosis and certainly all sorts of other vascular damage. So for instance it becomes clear why space and time and even the properties of matter itself depend on the observer in consciousness.
Again there are over 200 parameters so exact that it really strains reason to think that they’re purely random.
Those are experiences in consciousness and nobody has been able to actually locate that consciousness. Or the fact that whales communicate through infrasonic and dogs here things that we don’t hear because the instrument is different. We wake up in the morning and voila the world is just magically there but again new experiments are showing very consistently that not a single particle exists with real properties if no one is observing it. You could sit here and look at this globe and say these are all the possible places I could visit out there doesn’t mean that you could actually go there it just means that that is an extrapolation of the entire whole. If you look at an electron going through the two holes if you watch it behaves like a particle and goes through one hole or the other. There was an experiment that was published in one of the most prestigious journals in the world, Science last year in February. In fact when you take this point of view it even explains why the laws of the universe themselves are fine tuned for the existence of life.
The brain of course shows electrical phenomena but those electrical phenomena are not the experiences and similarly when I look at a red rose instead of imagining it, I see it out there but the experience is in my consciousness not even in my brain because it’s not even in my head. You can’t see that through the bone that surrounds your brain, in fact everything you see an experience right now is just a whirl of information occurring in your mind and space and time are simply the minds tools for putting it all together. As I curve back within myself I experience my mind in my consciousness I experience my own body in my consciousness and I experience my whole world in my consciousness.
In the Vedanta we say that the fault of the instrument is not a reflection of the user of the instrument. Reality is a process that involves our consciousness but it requires that you think about what is going in. If you don’t look at it, it acts like a probability wave and can go through both holes at the same time.
I say now listen, are you seeing an image of spaghetti and meatballs and who you were with last night when you had this dinner at the fancy restaurant in Manhattan and they of course are now reliving the full experience.
And what they actually did in this experiment is they put a particle into an apparatus and they had it go and make a choice along the way and then at the end they did something right now in the present that actually changed what that particle did in the past so the actions right now in the present, in the same universe you and I live in actually changed an event that actually happened retroactively in the past. What's more concerning is—most of the diagnoses started before the age of six.A study done at the National Therapies Research Unit at the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney Australia, showed significant improvements in ADHD symptoms with children who were taught to meditate. Lanza is considered one of the leading scientists in the world, he’s currently chief scientific officer at Advanced Cell Technology and adjunct professor at Wake Forest University School of Medicine.
So again without biocentrism or introducing consciousness or life into the equation none of this makes any sense.
So that consciousness exists outside of space-time because it actually conceives and constructs space-time as well and therefore being outside of space-time, transcendent it has no beginning and time, it has no edges in space and therefore it has no ending in time as well.
You’re the user of the instrument and you know you can manipulate the instrument any way you want as you just said change the weather if you want. And it’s not just you and I thinking this, I believe that if I have it correct that even Steven Hawking has now reevaluated his thinking and I think it was in an issue of Discover magazine is saying now that the present does actually impact the past.
Along the way I have studied with some of the most experienced and knowledgeable yogis from all different parts of the world and schools of thought.

Basically what he was saying based on our current laws of understanding, our current understanding of the laws of physics if some thing in the future, some imagined technology in the future does not violate our laws of physics then it is not impossible.
I think all experiences whether we have them all subjectively or objectively are in a transcendent domain which is beyond space and time because as you point out, space and time are also felt-sense experiences and therefore not independent of our consciousness. You know the whole goal of Eastern wisdom traditions has been to experience this as our identity. You can’t see anything out there through the bone around your brain and clearly that is completely reconstructed in your brain and as a physician you know well that people for instance like remember the movie A Beautiful Mind, people with schizophrenia they see people and things that are just as real. You have not laid down the threads of consciousness as to where it’s going to appear. I say well if I went into your neurons do you think I’ll find the pictures of spaghetti and meatballs or you know are those synaptic networks coded for spaghetti and meatballs? I completed a further two-year Yoga Therapy Diploma Course in 2002 with two medical doctors and Marie Quail, an esteemed yoga therapist.
It is possible and so he was talking about teleportation, he was talking about parallel universes, he was talking about bi-location, he was talking about time travel even into the past and influencing your ancestors in a way that you could be alive in one universe and not exist in another universe, etc. You think it’s bright out but the brain circuits can be changed so it looks dark out. That even when I think about the brain that in thinking about the brain is in consciousness. Your mind absolutely has the capacity to reconstruct and create a reality just as real as anything you are experiencing right now. I slowly lead them to the point where I say that that information, that memory existed as potential memory in their consciousness and when they had the intention it was almost like a measurement.
This provided me with a grounding in modern medicine and the application of Yoga for medical conditions.
In fact that’s why I left the world of medicine and went onto, on my own and started speaking about consciousness almost 25, 30 years ago I was considered an outcast. You know you’re coming from a very scientific perspective but essentially saying the same thing. So I stuck with the general public hoping I would be able to share my ideas which weren’t my ideas, which were part of a wisdom tradition that I had grown up with, with people that were not experts. The bottom line is that anything you see could not possibly be present without your consciousness. Even if it’s only a couple of hours, it’ll be pure bliss for you, and a great lesson for your little ones.You can turn it into a game, “who can be the quietest?” It should be fun for them. But what you’re saying right now in your book Biocentrism is that the physical universe would not exist unless there was a consciousness in which it could be conceived, constructed, and came into existence. It’s a field of possibilities, it proliferates in uncertainty, it has observer effect, it localizes in space-time events. If our kids are being diagnosed with ADHD before the age of six, we may need to start earlier. You know I can move from last night’s dinner to my childhood in an instant without going through all the intervening.
The structure will depend on your child’s age and nature, which you’ll have to learn with trial and error. Pranayama has been one of the most important tools for my kids’ well-being—as well as my own sanity. It helps them when they are about to burst into a crying fit or when they are too excited to express themselves clearly. I started them off with a simpler version where they hold one nostril and breathe in and out through the other, then switch sides. These 12 poses are said to keep the energy channels of the body open and flowing properly, preventing a host of diseases.Yoga is a moving meditation, the focus is on the practice itself, breathing, and the poses.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that brings your awareness to different areas of the body while lying in stillness. I like to put a little tweak on it for kids and have them imagine magical golden pixie dust is being poured or sprinkled on different areas of the body. Here are a few of my go-to mantras and tips to make the most of the experience:The Gayatri mantra has 24 syllables, each of which is connected to a different part of the brain.
It's also a beautiful song and a great exercise for memory.OM is the sound of the universe and divine intelligence: kids can connect with that! Allow your little ones to play with the tone and volume of their OM's and go at their own pace. You can also just make similar sounds that the vowels make, as in- uh, ooo, oh, ah, eye, aye, and, eee.After toning or using mantras, ask them to keep their eyes closed for a while and notice how they feel. It not only creates body awareness, but also provides a space for a deep loving connection between you and your child. Ask them to speak up and tell you what areas feel good being massaged (more than likely, it will be their feet, hands, head, and face, as most of us do). Explore in nature and have your child pick a stone (earth), fill a cup with water, burn a candle (fire), and use something like a feather to represent the air element. Kids get really into this and they somehow inherently know this is creating a sacred space. Make it a fun and positive experience throughout their childhood, so they are more likely to keep it up as a practice as they grow.
