Energy Healing Wolf August 10, 2010

Filed under: Complementary Therapies — aprasek @ 11:54 am

So amazing:


I used to be such a skeptic of this “energy healing” stuff. I initially dismissed it as quack medicine and crazy new age “science”. But, I was curious, so I began researching these modalities about 5 years ago. The first thing I learned was that this wan’t new age at all– these practices have been around forever.

I became certified in healing touch and studied under a Reiki master to really get the inside dirt. Over and over again, my mechanistic philosophies were challenged by “unexplainable” experiences and healings that I witnessed. I still don’t know if it’s just the placebo effect at work or the actual manipulation of the energy field. Maybe both. Maybe something totally different. Whatever the case, research has found many benefits from these practices and no real side effects.

After a lot of skepticism and reluctancy, I’m now a believer. If you’ve had any experiences with energy healing practices, please share them below– the good and bad.

 

Dalai Lama Lecture Tonight: “What Life Is All About” August 8, 2010

The lectures are happening in Delhi, so the times are a bit odd for us:

Start time of the first lecture is Sunday, August 8 at 11:00 PM CST. Watch the lecture live.

There will be another lecture on “Ethics for the New Millennium” Tuesday, August 10th at 3:30 AM CST.

OK, there’s no way I’ll be awake to watch any of those! Lectures will likely be posted soon at the website.

I attended Swami Veda Bharati’s lecture last night at the U of MN (pic above is of Swami Veda… and me getting dragged up on stage). The lecture was fantastic. I wish I could have filmed it to share with you all.

Ahh, but no worries, Swami Veda has a YouTube Channel! Check out a lecture he did about 3 years ago at the U of MN.

Oops! I forgot to post this… Here are those 2 extra things you can do to decrease your exposure to chemicals and clean up our planet:

First, watch the short video from the Story of Stuff Project: “The Story of cosmetics.”

Second, sign this:  Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010

Visit the Not Just a Pretty Face blog to see how the cosmetics industry is reacting to the video above… Hint: looks like they’re getting PR tactics from the BP and naughty politician models (blame, blame, deny, deny, play dumb, play dumber, quit, REPEAT).
