You don't have to be a yogi to benefit from this!

“Mindfulness is not something that is only done in the meditation hall, it is also done in the kitchen, in the garden when we’re on the telephone, when we are driving a car, when we are doing the dishes.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh


Mindfulness is not so much a form of meditation with eyes closed and legs crossed on a zafu…

"It's In My Genes" No Longer An Excuse For Poor Health


            We have all heard about someone miraculously being cured of Stage IV cancer after every other treatment has failed; a lifelong smoker and bacon eater who lived to the ripe old age ninety-five, or the woman being told she would never have children only to achieve a healthy pregnancy, naturally in her mid-forties. This phenomena happens more than one would think.  The cause and cure of many chronic diseases is beyond our genes and could be…

Self restoration while encountering the uncertain times

Abstract.....While grappling with uncertainty, the question often arises how to get back the restored sense of self. It’s the awareness of self that we can develop as time rolls by, once we are hit with the realization that the healthy ongoing feeling, the one that evokes authenticity, has long gone away and all we are performing is the role of an existential living.

Can You Change Your Destiny?

No, you can’t.  Next question?  Oh, I see, you want me to expound on that one a bit.  Well, you’re in lots of luck because that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

One of my favorite spiritual books is Dr. Michael Newton’s Journey of Souls, in which he describes how people choose the basic lineaments of their lives – the script (events that will unfold in a given life) and supporting cast of characters they will interact with – before they incarnate.  And the life they…

Grief and Times of Change

Grief is part of the human experience. We grieve the loss of a loved one, a furry friend, a beloved colleague, a career, a relationship or the loss of something we have had in our lives for a long time. We grieve the onset of illness, trauma or some situation that has or will change how we live our lives. And many of us grieve for all of humanity, the animals, the environment ... the collective in its current state of existence.

Also, during this time of massive change on the planet,…

Do Your Poor Lifestyle Choices Signal an Adjustment Disorder?

Everyone is moving indoors:

Summer is nearly over and the cooler autumn weather has begun to set in. Here in Ontario, many of us have started to move our activities indoors. But in this time of Covid-19, the shift indoors could also mean an increased risk of infection.

If we follow the public health guidelines and practice good self-care we can minimize that risk, but if we make poor health choices we risk becoming ill or infecting the people around us.

A recent study…

How brain waves are affected by the ocean waves

Abstract......A long stare at the ocean, listening to its waves, crashing and roaring induces a change in the frequency of our brainwaves and our minds lull lazily in a relaxation. From there, we are carried into a meditative state. As we listen to the sound of its waves, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, and we unwind in tranquility. The ebbing and flowing, the coming and receding of the waves, the frothy delight topping them, stimulates the…
