When I got into the gym today, 315 felt light and I had the urge to do more than my soul suggested, but I’ve learned the hard way to stick with Higher-guidance. I did six sets of 4 at 315 off the box and coupled that with reptilian crawling for the length of my track in the gym, which is 30 meters. I headed home about 4:30 to water my orange trees, work on my next herbal concoction, and do some art. I’m having a great time with my current piece of art and hope to share it with you when it’s done. Chakras function in much the same manner as a satellite antenna that both sends and receives information. Here you can see the energy field and chakras of a human being taken by advanced photographic technology, which is now widely available. To a skilled therapist, each color you see in such a photograph (or with your own spiritual vision) has specific meaning. As a therapist, I look at the colors and feel the energies associated with each client to know what questions to ask and what suggestions to make. The point I’m trying to get across is that chakras are no longer fluffy metaphysical stuff, but are the stuff of hard science! Scientists investigating subtle energies have found that all living things, including the earth itself, have chakras.
It isn’t a surprise to those of us who understand how chakras work that each major city in the world happens to be situated directly atop of key earth chakras.
In the photo of the chakras expressing energy from the human body above, you will see that there are chakras on the front and back of the body.
Those on the front of the body express energy related to an individual’s desires, while those on the back of the body correlate to an individual’s use of their will power. Just as each person you meet (including yourself) has a unique personality, dreams, goals and experiences that are expressed in the energy of your body, energy fields (aura) and give us a sense of them, and they us, each city has it’s own individual personality and energy profile. I’m sure most of you have noticed that there can be a pretty significant difference in the people from city to city; are the people the same in Seattle as they are in Miami?
In my diagram above, you can see the chakras represented by the color of light they commonly express as seen by those with clairvoyance (inner-vision or spiritual vision).
If we don’t evolve according to these life lessons, we tend to become stuck or animalized in that we may feel we are struggling to survive. Each of the first five chakras represent the dominant psycho-physical themes we may embody to achieve wholeness. I call the bottom three chakras the animal chakras because they are common to both animals and humans, and because the life lessons at these levels are common to all living creatures. The first thing any animal (or human) must do is learn to create safety and security for themselves.
For an animal, this typically means assessing its hunting grounds for intruders and doing what is necessary to feed itself. In nature, it is very unusual to see an animal procreate (2nd chakra) before it feels safe and has adequate food to feed itself and its offspring. Once we reach the fifth chakra level (age 35-42), which is primarily about communicating to self and others and using our creative energies effectively, we have finished our learning phase. At that point (provided our previous lessons have been learned), we now begin the second phase of our life, which is to exemplify the lessons learned for all those in their growth phase. We are tasked as living examples and now we head back down the ladder so-to-speak, with our final lesson being a healthy willingness to let go of the body at death to begin a new life in the next dimension or reality.
For example, the person I’ve exemplified above with financial challenges causing safety and security issues is likely to also have some degree of dysfunction in either lumbar spine, sacrum, coccyx region, and often have some degree of adrenal fatigue. The greater the pain or dysfunction, or number of dysfunctions expressed, the greater the energetic imbalance at the body-mind level as a general theme.
There is real benefit to addressing these issues, as well as understanding the nature of how the human ego grows and develops.
If there is an imbalance created in the first seven years of life that isn’t resolved before entering the second seven-year phase, the unresolved problems will mirror themselves within the next theme. Because each psycho-physical theme we grow through is developmental to the successive themes, we can, and often do become more and more complex and challenging to ourselves and others in relationships as we age.
For example, someone who has unresolved safety and security issues entering into the second period (which deals with sex identity, sexuality, and the use of creative energies) is very likely to have a hard time feeling safe in intimate relationships. Of the myriad of things that can be done to aid healing (outlined in the books suggested above), following the advice given as to how to lower your health appraisal questionnaires in my book, How To Eat, Move and Be Healthy!
Because our mind is an embodied process that regulates the flow of energy and information, it is often easiest to start the healing process by meeting our basic (animal a??) needs, such as getting adequate water, good food, exercise and rest. I have found that those with imbalances in a given chakra often have a hard time creating the sound that correlates with the chakra. After you’ve got that one working well, keep going until you’ve addressed the most challenging one. When you identify a chakra that is imbalanced with the methods I’ve suggested above, you can test to see if wearing, holding, or exposing your self to light of the correlating color is helpful. If looking at, holding or wearing the color that correlates with your imbalance seems to make you feel better, then exposure to that color is often helpful because it adds more light energy you can use at that level to make changes.
If you feel worse in any way, you may be addressing a chakra imbalance that is a symptom of a deeper imbalance. Therefore, if you get negative symptoms using the color that correlates with you imbalance, I suggest working backward or down the chakra tree testing each color along the way until you find one that feels good to you.
Additionally, once you find a supportive color, using the tone associated with that color will give added benefit. It is also wise to look at your overall diet and see if you are eating foods of the color that your body-mind responds favorably to. There are many audio CD’s now available with specific tracks of music to aid balance in each chakra. If you have a musical instrument, you can play with each of the notes on the tone scale until you find notes or sounds that are soothing to you and they will have a similar beneficial function. In closing, I’d like to highlight that the grand majority of chakra imbalance problems I see clinically result directly from poor choices. All the red meat, toning “DO”, crystals, essential oils, and the likes, will be very short lived until a person takes responsibility for the choices they are making that are creating the challenges! The first photo was taken at 11:00 (the green, lavender and violet), which is close on the colour scale to white (which I was told is very spiritual).
My headache, gastro-intestinal bloating, gas and nausea continued into the day, accompanying my dwindling mood. I typically start my healing sessions by having my patients complete PPS Success Mastery Lesson 1.
This program is specifically designed to help people look at the challenges in their life and see what can be gained from them. It also guides you to an awareness of the ten essential components of a legacy or overarching life dream so that anyone can become aware of what it is that they desire to create and make intelligent decisions in that regard. There is nothing better for balancing your chakras than having a clear definition of what makes you happy and a set of core values to guide your decision making process in relationship to self or others.
In my career, I’ve found that the people who have a clear concept of what they desire to experience and core values that guide them to the effective creation of such experiences never stay down long. If they get injured or become ill, it’s just a short glitch and they bounce back like a child getting back on their bike after a fall.
They rarely ever need any protracted therapy of any type, are open to sound advice, and, they act on it.

A delightfully inspiring experience that melds collaboration and creative expression with mindful observation of nature. Although many books have been written about the psychology of violence (as I learned during my days directing a program for court-referred perpetrators), Dr. The same dynamic of denial applies to entire nationsa€”and goes far toward explaining why the a€?nicesta€? and most restrained people sometimes pick up a gun. Listening to the Rhino deals not just with outwardly expressed violence, however, but with confronting and transforming archetypal violence (as imaged by the dream figure of the Rhino) manifesting from within the psyche.
Following up on Jung's advice to translate emotions into images, Dallett writes about how a symptom or an illness, whether somatic or psychogenic (or both), represents an attempt at incarnation imparted by a spiritual force badly in need of translation from a literal source of suffering into an actively lived symbolic work. Active imagination furnishes a primary Jungian tool for this kind of deep work, but as Dallett reminds the reader, Marie-Louise von Franz always insisted on the importance of completing at least these four steps: setting the ego aside, tending the images, reacting to the images, and putting the results to work in life (italics added). This belief may well be a candidate for what Dallett identifies in another context as a pathological identification with spirit: what Jung identified as inflation. In the chapter a€?Sedating the Savage,a€? Dallett presents many examples of how psychotropic medication represses unpleasant emotions while supporting artificial idealized states of happiness and surface contentment.
While the matter of healing is a major theme of this book, the other is violence, and Dalletta€™s point here is that when violence is repressed it puts the individual and collective into grave peril.
Dallett returns our attention to the potency of active imagination as a tool to activate the psychea€™s potential for literal physical healing as well as psychological wholeness.
On the cover is a picture of a rhinoceros with two birds perched on its back, a classic example of a mutually beneficial biological symbiosis. Jungians are often the last bulwark in todaya€™s field of mental health practitioners, who remember the unavoidable reality and necessity of darkness and violence. We must develop an ego that is strong enough to contain the violent side of human nature, Dallett suggests, in order to live up to a€?what Jung saw as the millennial task (of) carrying the divine opposites of good and evil within the individuala€? (p.87). To contain the worst kinds of violence, Dallett suggests that we find a way to give expression to our destructive impulses without causing too much harm. The gist of Dalletta€™s argument, however, points towards incorporating more of the almost lost Jungian technique of Active Imagination.
The Rhino did not simply show up to heal the dreamer, but to inform her that she was to serve him. In Pat Britta€™s own words a€?During my early association with The Rhino, I could tell he wanted something of me, but I did not know what. In the alchemical laboratory of human life we are also mirrors for transformations on a larger scale, the transformation of the spirit in nature.
Dallett reminds us that one-sidedness is one of our greatest dangers, be it the lopsided, misunderstood spirituality that denies the spiritual reality of violence or the overly rational slant of todaya€™s scientific community. We read in some detail here about the work of Jungian analysis, with special emphasis on active imagination, a method for bringing unknown parts of oneself into awareness and into connection with onea€™s everyday personality. Seamlessly, the book then turns to two major topics of special concern in todaya€™s world: the nature of violence and the use of psychotropic drugs.
While this discussion of violence focuses on the psychic sources of explosive violence, another section, on the use of psychotropic drugs, looks at contemporary uses of prescription drugs to damp down or cover up difficult, painful, unwelcome emotions (and violence).
What we have in this small book is the fruit of a penetrating mind nourished by long experience of the psyche, and now offering us the essence of that experience, fueled by passionate concern over issues of todaya€™s world.
Why is there so much violence around us - shootings in colleges, bullying in schoolyards, violent movies in theatres, graffiti in public spaces, news on television?
Janet Dallett is a Jungian analyst in her seventies, now living in Port Townsend, Washington. Britt had hundreds of Rhino dreams in the course of her nine-year analysis with Dallettt, which always focused on the meaning of his latest appearance.
Britt truly grasped the Rhino, writing poetry about him, painting his picture, and even casting him in bronze so he could stand in her front hall, and her damaged heart healed. Dallett attributes Britta€™s healing to her commitment to the Rhino, a voice for what Jung calls the Self, the God within. We are doing to the wild part of our psyche what we have done to the wild parts of the earth.

I first saw a pair of Vira Suns on my yoga-instructor-friend, Lauren Imparato, during a yoga class in the middle of Times Square. What sets this year's event apart from the last few, aside from the bearably cooler weather, was yoga-preneur Lauren Imparato leading the highly publicized morning class. After years of dealing with this issue called a€?sleevage,a€? Ia€™ve concluded that most bras Ia€™ve worn are actually the real culprits. Before you give a listen though, I want to share my thoughts on what Katya Meyers is doing. I got in touch with the designer, Geneva Peschka from SunandDaughtersCo on Etsy, to find out more about the inspiration behind the shirt.
Geneva bravely decided to act on the lessons she learned through these books and noticed her life change drastically for the better.

One of the most classic New Year's resolutions is to start going to the gym more, which is exactly why gyms start hiking up their enrollment fees around this time. I was there to buy an assortment of chocolates for my Aunt as a combined birthday and Valentine's Day gift. I make yoga dates with my girlfriends constantly because I feel like I get the most quality time with them during this workout than any other. This is Nicola Yvette, my longtime friend who teaches yoga & pilates (check her out here). Last night we went on yoga date to Laughing Lotus Yoga NYC and it was pretty awesome to experience her energy and soulfulness right beside me.

The Photo History 1993-2011 presents a visual record of the rich tapestry of participants, cultures, religions and beliefs that incorporate the Prayer Vigil for the Earth.
The Prayer Vigil for the Earth is a living prayer woven into a seamless tapestry of many traditions through collective experiences of faith. The Prayer Vigil for the Earth honors North American native traditions in several ways: First, through constructing in a blessing way the Sacred Circle or Hoop as a container for two days of Prayer Vigil activities.
During each Prayer Vigil, volunteers construct a Peace Village which can consist of Native American tipis, altars and sacred structures from many different religions and spiritual practices, labyrinths and various kinds of shelters. The Sacred Fire offers participants an opportunity to align the fire of their hearts, with the fire in the center of the Earth and the fire of the Sun.

These numbers correlate to the life lessons to be obtained in each lifetime so that we can first and foremost, become human in our use of self. These life lessons come in seven year periods beginning at the first (root) chakra in red at the bottom, which deals with the issues of creating safety and security for ourselves. This lists the main issue or psycho-physical them our growth is oriented around at each seven year period of our growth and development. If there is a problem with the tree’s ability to feed itself and grow that isn’t resolved at any period, that dysfunction becomes part of the fabric of the tree from then onward; a little diseased tree left untended becomes a bigger, older diseased tree! A simple way to begin assessing yourself and healing is to sound out the tones listed in the above diagram (DO, REY, ME, FA, SO, LA, TI). You are likely to find it easier to implement the changes needed to create wholeness in your life.
For example, root chakra imbalances related to money problems are as common as white bread. The colours have regressed in the chart towards the red end which I am told is closer to anger and conflict within me.

Dallett's clearly and concisely written book offers thoughtful and sometimes surprising reflections, case anecdotes, and scholarly musings on violence as a spiritual problem.
It is easy for introverts in particular to skip the final step, but doing so severs inner from outer, contemplation from action. James Hillman has presented a similar critique, which can be summed up by the dictum: Silence the symptom and lose the soul. It is tiresome to be reminded that Jung believed active imagination to be the sine qua non of coming to terms with the unconscious.
Oxpeckers or a€?tick birdsa€? sit on top of the rhino eating insects and noisily warn of approaching danger.
It contains big ideas that deserve to be pondered and digested many times and reading this book is an excellent way to re-engage this material. Dallett reminds us that the etymology of the word a€?violencea€? suggests a close relationship between violence and God. Dallett makes a convincing case that our culturea€™s addiction to love, peace and happiness in effect creates senseless violence and that we must learn and find a way to teach our children, that the terrible side of life is not going anywhere.
Dallett reminds us that, once a respectful and responsible attitude towards the unconscious psyche has been developed, the meditative dialogue of Active Imagination is the technique for the on-going and life- long task of engaging emerging images.
Dallett grounds her reflections by allowing us a glimpse into the lives of two former patients, Pat and Teresa and she shows us the difference in attitude of these two women towards powerful inner animal dream figures.
Britt had this dream, but because she took the image seriously and engaged it for decades to come.
It is a potentially dangerous, primitive animal that has visited the dreams and fantasies of Ms.
Dallett makes the analogy to the alchemical work, which Jung had translated into psychological terminology. At first I thought his message was personal a€“ urging me to view life as whole, not with the limited eye of my rational ego. Our collective ego is still trying to maintain its autonomy in relation to the larger mysteries while the power of the feminine in her own totality is pressing into consciousness. This discussion is unusually clear and thorough, giving a readable and rounded picture of this form of psychological worka€”both its potentiality for healing and its dangers. And why are we so fascinated by violence that crime, killing, and war are often at the top of the news?
I hear him pronounce: a€?If a thing is worth doing it is worth doing easily!a€? By this he means, according to Britt, that if a thing is worth doing it is worth taking the time to get to know it, so the thing can show you how it wants to be done. When connected to your inner program something beyond the ego comes to your aid, but when you try to go against your destiny you hit a wall. Later she realized he wanted to reach a wider audience; he wanted to speak for life, all life, animals, plants and the earth itself. We North Americans have naively idealized the Christian virtues of kindness and self-sacrifice, dangerously repressing our so-called negative emotions. We are sedating the suffering of body and soul with psychoactive drugs, unaware that pain is a reaction against something that needs to change. The reason I find them so relevant is because by 2020, wearable technology alone with generate over 20 billion dollars in revenue. Last night I made HelloFresh's Carmelized Onion Burger but instead of fries, the recipe included a roasted cauliflower side. It was supposed to wet your appetite for personal training and help you ease into your new gym-life. People are investing more of their paycheck in health & wellness, and seem to be more committed to their workouts than ever.
But if you want the benefits of the treatment, it's worth enduring the very looooong 3 minutes. So I was genuinely hoping to reap the benefits of whole body cryo and report back to you on how quickly it worked. Most of the ones Ia€™ve purchased or have been sent to review bite the dust in my gadget drawer at Mizzfit Headquarters.

Like many of you, I saw Kim Kardashian's selfie that she took in her trainer and wondered what's this? One of my recipes is an appetizer and the other is a side dish to accompany your turkey dinner.
Look for them in the canned and jar food aisle where you'd find things like stewed tomatoes, pasta sauces, etc. I'm pretty sure it was a combination of the perm's harsh chemicals (it was the early 90's afterall) and my onset of puberty. There's an amazing event called Over The Edge that happens nationwide through the Special Olympics, and I decided to do it in St.
In addition to raising awareness for this extraordinary event, I raised money to support it. To some extent that's true because of the amazing and innovative fashion sense people have here.
Serene Social has teamed up with Lululemon and Suja for this gathering to kick off the calamity of fashion energy that's about to overtake the city. By the time his photographs started getting noticed through social media, it was already a passion project. I've talked a lot about Haute Athletics this summer and love that they carry stuff you won't find elsewhere.
Since there are women rockin' this style and attitude in their everyday clothing, clearly there should be activewear that expresses the same vibe! Her prodigees went on to turn barre fitness into a successful business of popular, packed classes. Quite honestly, I felt like I was hiding out, as if I had taken off for an exotic and faraway retreat. But the real highlight was scoring my room at the Four Seasons for their celebration of Global Wellness Day, which was served up as a full week of fit & healthy activities.
Men don't like to be kept in the dark, because they know whatever you give them they'll have to top when it's time to shop for you.
I knew this year for Father's Day I was going to give my dad a travel bag that would help him do this. Here's the link again on Lucy's Blog :)]]>On June 21st, Athleta was the headlining sponsor of Solstice in Times Square put on by Times Square Alliance for it's 13th year. When Katya first reached out to me and shared a bit of her life with me, I was really impressed with her background and how she left a traditional career path to pursue an endeavor her heart was stuck on (racing).
She told me that over the last few years she's been doing a lot of self work and stumbled across Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group. She works out with me, attends my events and has modeled for print ads (like the one above which actually never ran) and in magazines with me. After writing about Team SCA and their amazing adventure racing around the world, I was invited on a press trip to sail with them.
Just to clarify, the Volvo Ocean Race is ongoing and was in full effect while I was on this press trip, but a few crew members at a time are allowed to come off the boat for a leg of the race and rest up. As I write this, there are some incredibly athletic and brave women sailing around the world as part of Team SCA.
It stops in nine countries around the world before finishing in Gothenburg, Sweden this June of 2015. Test everything you plan on wearing for the official half marathon race day during your last few training runs. Now that crazy party church is home to David Barton Gym and LimeLight shops where health and fashion are king and "queen" (it's in Chelsea, so I had to).
And if anyone has ever told you that knee highs only look good on girls with skinny legs, well, that's just NOT TRUE. Personally, I just think it's a matter of choosing a pattern, color or length that best suit your legs.
I like to uncover the healthiest and most active things going on in the places I travel to, and I always prefer to go off the beaten path. As I get older, I find I need to do more to preserve the firmness, the lift and glow factor of my skin.
I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide. To be honest, I have more health goals than I can count on 5 sets of hands, so I'll keep it short and sweet.
Since she's a fashion designer, I knew she'd love chocolates from the most stylish and talked about chocolatier in town (the owners used to work at Per Se).
As a fitness trend expert, Ia€™m thrilled to see this movement thrive, but I go crazy when I cana€™t sign up for a class because it's completely SOLD OUT!

We have selected images that we believe are representative of the experience of the Vigil since its inception in 1993. On the left side of the photo before the Washington Monument is the Vigil kitchen, used to feed the Elders, Vigil participants and volunteers. They are used by the shamans ofAsia and the Native Peoples of North America and by Medicine Men tocall spirits, blown in time with the drum by the dancers during the SunDance, and used during the Grass Dance.The tibula bone of aneagle wing is used for the whistle. At the conclusion of the first small Prayer Vigil for the Earth in October 1993, Grace insisted that the event go forward encouraging the co-founders, Betsy Stang, David Berry, and Sharon Franquemont, to carry on the annual work.
Some years we havelooked up from our circle on the National Mall to see a bald eagle incircling high above us, a rare experience above one of America's fivelargest cities. The exact history of Japanese Taiko drum remains shrouded in speculation, although some educated guesses are possible. The purpose changed when Wisdom Keepers suggested the event be spiritual rather than political. Today, the ceremony lives on and is called "Mikotonori," in whichthe sound of drumming bridges the divide between the human and thedivine.
Aboriginal art is perhaps most accurately described as a method for gaining knowledge of nature and its invisible Dreaming.
The belt is sewn with thousands of tiny, polished, cylindrical purple and white sea shell beads woven together with leather strips.This Wampum Belt has been handed down among the Algonquin for hundreds of years. Chief William Commanda, the 89 year old spiritual elder of the Algonquin Nation is now the present holder of this belt, which is believed to have come into existence circa 1400 CE. He was a major figure in the occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973 and played a founding role in an ongoing Indian School System, Legal Rights Center and the International Indian Treaty Council. If you are having problems meeting your financial needs for safety and security, for example, then you are very likely to have an imbalance at the root chakra level. Just as I mentioned above, the more problems a person has in this column, the greater the imbalance. I had an organic breakfast of chicken, tomatoes, asparagus and raw garlic at approximately 08:00.
How much of my energy and own nutrient stores is being used up to digest, metabolise, assimilate and eliminate this garbage? In most cases this time enhances compassion, clarity and creates a state of calm and centeredness.
Ces disques sont toujours en rotation pour faire circuler l’energie, il est donc important que l’equilibre des 7 chakras principaux soit en continuelle rotation.
During our retreat, we'll explore different ways to play, express and move through the world.
The act of creating mandalas aid in creating a sacred space to focus, meditate, heal and be exposed to our natural creative flow.
A profound and life altering journey that sets the groundwork for understanding how one navigates through the world.
Youa€™ll have well-deserved opportunities to dis-connect from everyday life in order to re-connect with your inner nature, surrounded by the beauty of sun and sea.
Also criticized is the widespread habit of using meditation to get rid of (repress) the emotionally charged images flowing from the unconscious.
I would like to see this insightfully expressed logic extended more often to the state of the oppressed struggling on every side and in all corners of the world.
The Indoa€“European root of the word a€?violenta€? is wei, which means vital force and one definition of the word God is a€?an immanent vital forcea€? (p.86). The reader is encouraged to reflect on seemingly counter-intuitive statements, such as a€?violence is the human spirita€™s protest against the enforcement of more goodness than it can stomacha€? (p.92). This suggestion, although fundamentally right, may need more elaboration than this book provides, because the danger of infection by archetypal forces is high and not to be taken lightly. With reference to Barbara Hannah, Dallett devotes a segment of the book to a much needed review of what Active Imagination is and discriminates what it is not. We are informed on the front page that this book was written with contributions by The Rhino and by Dalletta€™s former patient Pat Britt. Dallett writes, a€?The Rhino has been the central figure in hundreds of Pata€™s dreams continuing still today. The alchemists believed that their work was to redeem God or the son of God, whom the alchemists imagined as a a€?fabulous being conforming to the nature of the primordial mothera€? (p. We are encouraged to look at the place within ourselves where we remain a€?fundamentalista€?, where spirit is trapped in a literal, concrete enactment, physical illness or cherished convictions of the nature of reality. The cover photo of a rhinoceros with two small birds casually perched on its back leads us into a text full of insight into both interior and outer worlds. Only a profound understanding can put forth such subtle and complex ideas in such apparently plain talk. Britt had been so ill with bacterial endocarditis and kidney failure that she was expected to die in her early forties. However, if something is hard to do you should change your relationship with it, or let it go. We are suppressing the healthy masculinity of normally active children with Ritalin, either because the way we are living is driving our children crazy or because they do not conform to our expectations. Yes, it's going through it's "boutique salon" stage right now, but people have been "floating" and even installing floating chambers in their homes for the last 20 years.
But seriously, it's hard to decide which one is my favorite prize because quite frankly, I own them all. We often take for granted the wonderful parks and historical sights within the region we live in.
A few years ago The New York Times reported that some women were studio-hopping, taking more than 1 class a day to get their fix. It wasn't an overnight kind of relief, but the pain did completely go away about a day and half later.
I know youa€™ve probably heard of many fitness trackers already but this one is the tracker of all trackers.
8 years ago I left a career in corporate advertising to pursue my dream of reporting on health & fitness.
Ita€™s risky business juggling a lot in your life, but for me personally, I live for the thrill! I reached out to Hourglass Angel (the most well-known waist training seller online) to see if I could try their products and, of course, come to my own conclusion. Again, not complaining as worse things have happened in my life, but as all wavy and curly-haired girls know, learning how to style curls is freakin' hard!
Louis at The Arch so that Special Olympics athletes from my hometown can train, compete and enjoy a lifetime of their own thrills.
BUT, I'm never as exposed to the world of fashion and the mind-blowing creations debuting on runways as I am during NYFW.
She presented her "Search Don't Rescue" collection, which really appealed to me because I'm a huge fan of monochromatic, flowy dresses and pairings. Graffiti Beasts leggings feature the art of real street artists whose art can be seen on the streets of Lisbon, Barcelona, Milan, New York City and many more cities across the world.
Michelle Austin, founder of the Fluidity Barre, was one of her students among others like Exhale founder Fred Devito, who I interviewed HERE.
You will most likely discover parts of your body that you never knew were possible to work out or even move. They have a wayfarer style (which is so classic that they're always IN) and they're made with polarized, UV400 protection lenses. If you set a level of expectation, they will ALWAYS look forward to your gifts and rave about them in conversation.
Let me guess, you know how to break a sweat but you also look forward to showing off how well you clean up and glow like a pro.
Check it out because I go into detail about why these skincare products should be in your summer gym bag STAT! This is the yearly event where yogis come together right smack in the middle of Times Square to celebrate the day the sun is at its highest position in the sky for the longest period of time. The tracker itself is a black shiny oval shaped piece that clips into a metal slip-on bracelet.
But what you're paying for is great technology, an app that doesn't baffle you but inspires you and a piece of jewelry that looks good with anything you wear. A really astounding young lady and go-getter herself, Katya Meyers, created the interview series to share what happens behind the scenes in the lives of successful health & wellness oriented professionals.
Spirit Junkie and the book A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson really helped open her mind and heart to all the amazing possibilities that can happen when someone chooses love over fear. If you know of a case that shoud be on this list, please add it to the comments section below with a direct link. It's a 5 day adventure and my sources are telling me that there will be 130 of the most famous Zumba instructors onboard including Beto Perez himself. I used to think of her as just my mom without fully worshipping everything she's accomplished.
They're competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, which is considered to be the toughest sailing race in the world. It's a long trip (9 months at sea!) and it's a tremendous challenge for these women, requiring massive teamwork and goal-setting.
Of course, you have to train consistently, eat right and get plenty of sleep and hydration. I teamed up with Chrissy's and my bestie, Michelle from YoGoGirls, to bring you these playful and sporty looks. I'm 5'2" with muscular legs and I loved the way these Polka Dot Socks almost seemed to lengthen my legs.
Aging lines, sun damage and sagging are major concerns of mine, and I'd like to do the most I can to prevent the visible aging process from coming on faster than it needs to. Because aluminum prevents our underarms from stinking by blocking sweat from escaping through our pores onto the surface of the skin. Since May of 2009, I've been on a mission to take everything I learned and experienced from my advertising career and turn into something truly positive that will help women embrace health & wellness. I also wanted to take a moment to tell all of you that I'm always here to answer your questions about health & wellness so feel free to contact me.
Speaking of sweet, Valentine's Day reared its rosy head and lured me into a chocolate shop last week. As I admired the glossy bonbons (they're literally lacquered with a sugary coating and some are topped with edible gold leaf) my mouth was watering insatiably.

It is attached to a buckskin cordand tipped with a white plume feather from the breast of a goldeneagle.
For larger dance or powwow type drums, the basic construction is very similar in most tribes: a wooden frame or a carved and hollowed-out log, with rawhide buckskin or elk skin stretched out across the opening by sinew thongs. Nature often echo's our activity with the arrival of apair of osprey, a pattern in the clouds, or a wonderful coincidence ofa person with some connection to the ceremony going on, just happens tobe going by the Vigil site and walks in at a "perfect" time. The elders say that all ceremonies, tribal or private, must be entered into with a good heart so that we can pray, sing, and walk in a sacred manner, and be helped by the spirits to enter the sacred realm.Native people throughout the world use herbs to accomplish this. The oldest physical evidence of taiko in Japan is a haniwa clay figure of a drummer that dates from the sixth or seventh century. Committedto interfaith experiences, Baba traveled to Pipestone, MN to offer hisdrumming to Native American sundancers. Our energy as the combined will of all people with the spirit of the Natural World will make us be of one body, one heart, and one mind for peace.”“Look behind you.
An example is the playing of the didjeridoo, a long wooden flute, perhaps the oldest musical instrument on earth.Traditionally, an Aborigine would go into nature and listen intensely to animal sounds, not just voices but also the flapping of wings or the thump of feet on the ground. It has seven Diamonds which represent the Seven Fires.Grandfather Commanda and other Traditional Leaders believe that we have entered the time of the Seventh Fire, which is the time of decision between the two roads of materialism and of spirituality. The Seven Fires Prophecy is ancient but its message is relevant for today's world and for us, who must bring about a new balance to our lives and to the environment which we need for survival. He is also directing the Peacemaker Center for Indian youth and the AIM Patrol which provides security for the Minneapolis Indian community.
Lotus and the Butterfly Womena€™s Grief Retreat is a collaboration between Drama Specialist, Sally Kinka, Grief Therapist (TBA) and Expressive Artist and Creative Process facilitator Annelies Gentile.
Well, leta€™s just get down to brass tacks and talk about What the Bleep Creativity really is and really isna€™t. Mandalas were used in ancient traditions for the same reasons and show up in architecture, art and in nature. Side effects definitely include giggling, happiness, artistic expression, bursts of spontaneous dancing, cool new friends, oh, and nap-time yogaaah. Wea€™ll explore and retreat through story, music, movement, writing, yoga, meditation and visual art. Wea€™ll explore and retreat through guided experiences of movement, writing, story, play, yoga, meditation, visual art and finding inspiration through Mother Nature. In my men's groups we always knew which men were at greatest risk for another violent incident: those who maintained that their anger was an aberration they had now overcome with penance and good intentions. An overemphasis on decency and virtue not only darkens the personal and collective shadow, it unconsciously identifies with divine goodness and thereby falls into inflation and self-righteousness. These and other New Age maneuvers are enlisted in the service of propping up the happy persona that conceals the darker dimensions of conflictual psychic life.
Yet Dallett goes farther: Psychiatric medication should only be used to contain severe symptoms, she argues, preferably in small doses and even then only temporarily. Most of the examples of violence in this book break forth from the uptight middle class, where swings are removed from parks to prevent lawsuits.
In Jungian thought, the Self, which is the psychological equivalent to the image of God, often breaks into consciousness violently. Active Imagination is not guided fantasy nor is it art, but, following Hannah, Dallett sees Active Imagination as a creative function. 28), an earthy, fabulous, night creature, like the Rhino, equally life threatening and life giving.
We meet the rhino of the title as he first appears in the dreams of a gifted woman whom the author has known for more than 30 years, initially as her Jungian analyst.
Rage, she says, is a natural instinctive response to a threat to the Self; violence is the human spirita€™s protest against the enforcement of more goodness than it can stand. The category continues to evolve and expand beyond the fitness tracker we're all familiar with. The prizes I pick for each Booya Fitness challenge are based on my favorite products and gear that I've personally test out for you.
I only ate half the bun and the wonderful part about the meal is that the portions are JUST RIGHT.
I already have enough gadgets and gizmos in my life that if I'm going to add something to the mix, it better do something spectacular.
Let's just say I ended up falling in love with waist training, which is something I really didn't expect. I made some amazing stopsa€”this one was my favoritea€”and had a lot of time to think along the way.
You essentially have to ask yourself whata€™s next in my lifea€¦what road will I take and where do I hope it will lead me? As a fitness trend expert, I never limit myself to just fitness events because EVERYTHING is fusing together these days. But yes, I have a FLAT approach to skincare that I want to share with you today that literally saves my life every time I travel.
Fact of my life: my toiletry bag + makeup bag + hair dryer and roundbrushes = most of the weight in my suitcase.
Ia€™m discovering new spots to work out, sharing my favorite places to unwind and scoring face-time with friends. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage. The 2 pieces together are minimal and sleek in away that far out-styles FitBit, UP by Jawbone, Nike+ Fuelband and similar black band trackers.
The 2 metal bracelet finishes--Midnight Purple and Brushed Gold--blend exceptionally well with silver and gold tone jewelry. I'm honored to be a part of her series and my interview is LIVE and ready to be heard by clicking RIGHT HERE.
My mom and I don't always agree on everything but she's been very supportive of my life choices and has taken great care of me throughout my life.
It's going to be a fun springtime evening social, if you will, and a great chance to check out the evolution of LimeLight! Come join our healthy party with cocktails from SkinnyGirl and Juice Press, and wine sorbet from Frosae Wine Sorbae, which is basically FROZEN WINE!
So I've put a little something together with a posh studio that's new to the area called Core3 Fitness. Hopefully they'll inspire you to get creative with something as simple and inexpensive as a pair of socks. So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt. I can't perform magic tricks but I can wear Altchek MD's Daily Moisturizer made with SPF30, Ester C and Vitamin E.
The plus side is less sweat and stink but the downside is that antiperspirants prevent the human body from doing it's job, which is to rid itself of toxins. I thought I'd share with you what I've got on my desk today: the March issue of People Style Watch Magazine and my new favorite toy, a Ball Wide Mouth Mason Jar with a fruit infuser lid!
It's one of the easiest invitations to extend because no one has time--including me--to workout and see their friends unless it's happening simultaneously. In this case, it's imperative that your mats are side by side so you can visually bond with your friend.
Our staff is dedicated to meeting your needs with the highest level of integrity and customer satisfaction.

The Native American host tradition is joined by spiritual leaders and representatives from all major faiths.
One common ceremony is to burn certain herbs, take the smoke in one's hands and rub or brush it over the body.
However, since the first instruments in any society tend to be percussion instruments, it would not be out of the question for taiko (as we know them today) to have been used in Japan for well over 2000 years.Japanese taiko as we know them today bear strong resemblance to Chinese and Korean instruments, which were probably introduced in the waves of Korean and Chinese cultural influence from 300-900 AD. The Aborigine would also listen to the sounds of wind, thunder, trees creaking, and water running. If the light skinned race chooses the right road, then the Seventh Fire will light the Eighth and final Fire, an internal Fire of peace, love, brotherhood and sisterhood.
Side effects may include giggling, happiness, artistic expression, bursts of spontaneous dancing, cool new friends, oh, and naptime yoga nidra. Take this time to un-plug from technology, connect with human beings and be free to be YOU!
In the light of this observation, the missionary and the terrorist stand revealed as brothers-in-arms. Making a work of art, breaking a therapeutic impasse, or modifying a relationship are three of many possibilities for new forms of expression that liberate the archetypal power from remaining trapped a€?in mattera€? (in symptom or illness). One can almost hear in popular a€?thinking positivea€? propaganda the voice of the family cheerleader castigating brothers and sisters for being so a€?depressinga€? as to discuss Dad's alcoholic violencea€”or on a national level, the violence inflicted by the precarious rule of empirea€”out in the open. Although the alarm should be raised about overmedicationa€”psychotropics are even being found in public water suppliesa€”I have known people with major psychiatric disorders for whom the advice to go off meds to do a€?psychological worka€? has been disastrous.
Dallett pleads us to acknowledge that the terrible in human life is real and that only by confronting it, by taking it by its horns, do we have a chance of not being controlled by it.
The Rhino represents an instinctual mercurial principle in psyche that holds the power to heal or to wound. The Rhino becomes an imaginal companion for Pat Britt and Dallett speculates that his a€?dependable presence may compensate the uncertainty of a life in which death is always at handa€? (p.33).
We follow the patienta€™s devoted inner work with the dream rhino, as he emerges into a living imaginative reality: mentor, opposite and guide, and we learn of the healing of her life-threatening physical illness. In Britta€™s initial dream, the dream that is thought to foretell the course of therapy, a small rhinoceros charges her, but she catches him by the horn and holds on. If you can let it speak to you, and give it what it needs you will have an inner partner for the life that remains to you, however long or short that may be.a€? (p. Royalties, in part, go to the International Rhino Foundation, which helps to preserve the rhinoceros from extinction. It's drastically changing these industries with more advanced fabrics, lighter and more funtional parts, more accurate tracking and motion sensors, and overall cooler customization. Whether it's my boyfriend coming over to cook with me, my mom visiting from Missouri or my best friend coming to spend the weekend with me to play in New York City, I literally ALWAYS have a meal in the fridge for 2 that only takes 30-45 minutes to whip up.
And can you blame them for not caring when they know new members are taking them for joyride? Since I'm the healthy one in my familia, they count on me to contribute an interesting veggie concoction that wows their taste buds.
I caught the flu somewhere between rushing to shows and shaking hands with and hugging everyone. I've been to a few of their events, but this year's New York Fashion Week 2015 showcase was one of my favorites.
Fashion is going sporty on NYFW catwalks and tech is catering more than ever to wellness conscious users.
Ia€™m doing it all in a 2015 Ford Explorer to celebrate Tri-State Forda€™s a€?Where To Now?a€? adventure and summer sweepstakes! My products have to be effective, easy to apply, fast working and light (on my shoulder, not just my face!). It's challenging, modern, music-oriented, and doesn't follow all the yoga rules you're used to. Most people won't even notice you're wearing a tracker because it looks like a fancy bangle. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport. I learned a lot from them about Team SCA's voyage, race conditions and day to day life at sea during this gorgeous afternoon spent sailing on the Hudson River.
I've been running long distances since highschool and to this day I'm still discovering new tricks for a smoother run.
Going to the Big Island this past February was my 3rd time back to the wonderous state and I used a new online travel guide service called Localfu to navigate my way around like a local. Even my hunky Australian officemate who is the epitome of a guy's guy goes to SoulCycle and has a ClassPass acount. A sacred fire burns continuously in the center of a circle of Christian and African altars, tipis, a Jewish sukkah, a Tibetan stupa and tent, a labyrinth, a Prayer Grove, a children’s activity area and other areas. The very next day a tornado's funnelcloud passed directly over the Prayer Vigil site but did not touch ordamage the area.
It has been speculated that the predecessor of the tsuzumi style of taiko may come from as far as India, and came to Japan along with Buddhism. We are faced with either chaos and disaster, or we can unite spiritually in peace and harmony. We are faced with either chaos anddisaster, or we can unite spiritually in peace and harmony.
Mikotonori is a prayer in which thehopes and thankfulness of those participating rise straight to God.Such occasions of transcendence are known as " kanno doko," moments inwhich the spiritual and physical worlds speak to each other and areentwined with divine light.
The essences of all these sounds were played with as much accuracy as possible within the droning sound of the didjeridoo. I am thinking of people legitimately diagnosed with bipolar disorder who took similar advice from their gurus and ended up psychotic; one, a former student, is still homeless and ranting in the streets. As fantastic amounts of money continued to be funneled upward, the number of Americans living below the poverty line soars higher than ever before. There is a story about the late Edward Edinger in which someone asked him, a€?What is new in Jungian psychology?a€? He replied, a€?New? Then I am reminded of the story of Edinger and his comments about what is old and what is new in Jungian psychology.
Instead she asks us to recognize violence as an intrinsic aspect of the collective psyche, one that must find expression and that does have a purpose as when a€?the Self often breaks into consciousness in ways that are violent, primitive, even monstrous.
The unconscious is a minefield of devastating, destructive potentials, but without venturing, and at times suffering this minefield, there is no way of getting to the treasures. In Pat Britta€™s case, it was the spirit released from a life threatening illness that took the image of this large, gravelly voiced Rhino.
Finally we see that this work gives the former patient her independence of analysis and analyst.
As I get older, I realize how important it is to poke around and get the inside scoop instead of just taking things at face value. It's really amazing to see all the companies being born out of these kind of technological advancements.
It's been a whirlwind of a month but I'm finally back at Mizzfit headquarters blogging about all my exciting Fall adventures. Ia€™ve worked really hard to get where I am, but if you had asked me years ago whether Ia€™d be in the drivera€™s seat of my own business and reporting on womena€™s health, Ia€™d think you were nuts.
I worry that I won't have what I need and as a frugalista, I don't want to buy what I already own while away from home. Most importantly they have to feel good on and revitalize my skin, whether Ia€™m running to a workout or freshening up right after one. It's simply amazing, so I was thrilled to see her join what has become a yogi cult favorite summer event. But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter. She told me to choose my deodorant wisely because many popular brands pose health risks, especially to women. Check me out in Lacroix Sparkling Water's new campaign called "Start A Healthy Relationship", which can be seen on the Lacroix website and in several fitness & health publications like Oxygen Magazine. The tipis and various holy structures stand as symbols of spiritual community in view of the monuments and Capitol dome that are symbols of our nation.
However, the waves of cultural influence stopped for the most part around the year 900, and development from that point can basically be attributed to native Japanese craftsmen. Look farther and see your sons’ and your daughters’ children and their children’s children even unto the Seventh Generation. It was at such a moment that the ShumeiTaiko Ensemble was born.Shumei Taiko Ensemble believes that artcan touch every human being despite the differences of language,customs, race and religion.
The "life path" established bythe Great Spirit divides into the lower, narrow path of continuous Lifein harmony with nature and the wide upper road of white man'sscientific achievements. I have also known people with schizophrenia who could never hold down jobs or attend school without some kind of long-term antipsychotic medication. People still dona€™t understand the old.a€? Author Dallett might heartily agree with this sentiment. He speaks to our desperate post-modern world, saying we must turn away from our arrogance and learn again to live with the rhinos, the crocodiles, and all the natural, instinctive forms of life a€“ now, before they are gone, leaving us alone, alienated, and doomed to extinctiona€? (p.37).
So I've whipped out a larger magnifying glass (aka camera and corresponding film team) and started doing a lot more poking around than usual. I take a lot of criticism for being an outspoken Republican (I'm NOT anti-gay marriage or pro-life though), for wearing waist trainers and even for making a living off of social media. That being said, I was pretty excited to see which brands would be making their debut at TechStyleNYC! If you live on the West Coast, keep reading because I have details on an amazing fit event happening out there as well. They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one. Find out what's in store for you and please check out this Facebook Invitation (where I'd love for you to RSVP).
I want you to be informed on all the possibilities of fitness instead of believing bogus stories that discourage you.
My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own. The mystical power which springs from theartist’s soup passes through the written word, the picture and themusical instrument, and plucks at the soul of all humankind. The bar between the paths, above the cross, isthe coming of white men; the Cross is that of Christianity. Our grandfathers said the 7th generation would provide new spiritual leaders, medicine people, doctors, teachers and our great chiefs.
