Teach Your Children Well, for Children Learn What They Live – 

If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Somerville Mosaic Art Exhibition through April 7th

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Somerville Mosaic Art Exhibition 2018 – I recently went to Somerville Museum to see my friend Angel’s artwork at this exhibit. There, I came upon these beautiful mosaics created by two Artists from Cape Ann – Pamela Stratton and Mary Bowles. Both had a number of pieces there. If you haven’t been to this exhibit, I highly recommend it! 

 

Visual Art and Health – Medical professionals have increasingly recognized the role that creative arts play in the healing process. Arts in medicine programs are emerging worldwide. The Mass General Hospital’s (MGH) Illuminations program is an example of this.

MGH Illuminations – Good Morning Gloucester blogger and Photographer Donna Ardizonni currently has her photography on display at MGH Boston. During the June 2018 – September 2018 MGH Illuminations Rotation, my Annisquam Delight and others photos will be on display. Years ago, I attended an Illuminations Rotating Art Exhibition Opening. A very moving experience; one of my patients was a featured artist.  Art meant so much to her and brought a great deal of peace and she was the epitome of resiliency and HOPE.

What Settings Do You Prefer for Relaxation and Learning?

 

Home much does the environment affect your ability to relax and learn? 
I have offered sessions and trainings in many settings, from hospitals to horse farms. No matter where I am, I feel the work is the same. I wonder though, how much does the space make a difference to the enjoyment and learning experience of students and clients.
What is your favorite setting in which to ‘Relax and Learn?’ This poll only takes a few moments. Your feedback is much appreciated and will determine the location of future classes and sessions.

The Reiki (Kyogi) Principles –

Today Only …

Let Go of Anger,

Let go of Worry,

With Thankfulness,

Work Diligently (on one’s self)

Be Kind to (Self and) Others.

—From Founder of Usui Reiki Ryohō, USUI Mikao Sensei 

(B. August 15, 1865 – D. March 9, 1926; as written on his memorial stone.)

Photos here are of places where sessions, classes and retreats have been/will be offered. The first photo was taken at the North Shore Medical Center, in the hospital. No matter where I have offered reiki sessions people report “feeling relaxed.” So I wonder, how much do the aesthetics of the setting matter? What are your thoughts?

REIKI TRAINING – Dreamtime Wellness™ Reiki Trainings, 1st Degree/Shoden (Beginning Level) will resume in April.  The answers to this poll may determine ‘where.’ This beginning level of reiki practice is intended for self-care and self-healing. You will also learn to offer reiki on family, friends, and pets. Includes a manual, mentoring, and certificate of completion at the end of 50 hours of training, practical experience and self-study.

CEU’s – Offered to case managers, body workers, massage therapists nurses, and social workers  upon request.

Enjoy today in a healthy way, ~ Karen

Black Pepper

Black Pepper

Black Pepper = heat

Through the lens of Ayurveda, the heating and pungent properties of black pepper work to help metabolize food as it is digested in our system. The stimulating quality is also used to clear congestion in the respiratory system as well as other processes.

Choose organically grown black pepper associated with a fair trade cooperative is highly preferable to conventional pepper.

Black Pepper Aids Digestion through the lens of Ayurveda in rekindling agni, (digestive fire)

Black Pepper is an Antioxidant and helps in cold and flu remedies. Black pepper and honey is a traditional Ayurvedic approach to respiratory congestion, helping to expectorate and dry up mucus membranes (Frawley, 1986). In Western herbalism, it is used in antiseptic cold and flu preventatives like fire cider.

Pepper has cleansing and antioxidant properties, and helps to transport the benefits of any other herbs to the different parts of the body.

Black pepper is a warming spice and has a pungent taste. It is terrific for pacifying Kapha, and just a little bit helps pacify Vata. Black pepper should be used in moderation as it does increase Pitta.

Share with us how you use Black Pepper in your diet.
