Education is ILLUMINATING

        Not teaching Body Parts in 2016-2017

        2015-16

        Available in Abita Springs and New Orleans

        A 6 part series called Exploring Body Intelligences and How We Heal

        These classes are designed to explore the inner and outer workings of our wonderful bodies, and to delve into perspectives not often presented in the dry verbiage that is presented in schools and texts. Our bodies are much more than mechanized beings and have amazing abilities that can help us mature and realize our potential - with optimism! - as nature intended. With so much focus on disease and failings, toxins and lack of nutritious foods,we forget that our bodies are our allies and are fully equipped to heal, repair and regenerate. Perceiving symptoms of dis-ease as ways in which our bodies are expressing themselves, and attempting to guide us on our journey, opens a whole new world!

        It's a healing....not an invasion!

        previous FOURTH FRIDAY BODY PARTS

      Two classes available: 10 AM - 12 NOON and 7 PM - 9 PM call or email to register. Class limit 9. $15

      4th Friday Body Parts Classes have been a real treat this year.  I think the biggest impact of these classes has been getting in touch with the miracle that is us, allowing each of us to feel more awe and amazement of the work our organs do every second of the day with no time off for good behavior!  Learning how to honor and support our organs has been a real gift, and very empowering.  We start with a simple "what if" question to challenge our perceptions:

      What if ...... our organs are alive?  To be "classified" as living in scientific terms, an organism needs to possess a capacity to grow, reproduce, respond to stimuli and adapt to its environment through changes originating internally? How would this change your view of your organs?  What if they are very much ALIVE and incredibly intelligent? 

      Perceptions shape the way we view and respond to our world.  What if we think of our kidneys as "Guardians of our internal environment" or "Ministers of Power"?  How does that change our responses to our kidneys? What if we viewed the bladder as the "Minister of the Reservoir" who temporarily stores what has been let go by the liver and kidney and releases in controlled flows back into the world ?

      This holding and letting go is intimately tied to the function and balance of the nervous system and emotions such as anxiety, rage and fear.
