Life Skills- Other
Is our food “real?” Gary Feldman, consumer food educator, and forerunner in public education on organic and GMO food, focuses on the powerful world of biotechnology and the global ideology behind the creation of “new food.” Learn the direct connection between the disappearance of bees, butterflies, declining farms and forests, food shortages, extreme weather – and who owns the world’s food supply. By being aware of what has happened to our food, we can understand what is behind so many major events and turmoil occurring in the United States and around the world. We will also discuss the GMO food labeling legislation. How we spend our dollars sends a most powerful message. The future of humanity, animals and the ecosystem depends upon our food choices.

Nesteruk, Donna Sound Meditation and Guided Imagery Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other,
Other
Quartz crystal bowls resonate at frequencies that produce powerful sound waves. These vibrations produce the energetic sounds that manifest the crystalline structure of the bowls themselves. The bowl sound may resonate in a uniquely harmonious fashion with the human body since our healthy human tissues are more crystalline than fluid in nature.  The bowls also resonate with the human voice.  The sounds permeate our systems, resonating with our essence, so that inner chaos, conflict, and dissonance seem almost immediately to be transformed into harmony. Other meditative sounds are also combined during this session to create a restorative and relaxing experience. Guided imagery is a conscious, intentional use of your imagination, which accesses your sub-conscious mind via sensory images.  Because our bodies cannot distinguish the difference between reality and fiction, sensory images evoke the same chemical and physiological reactions, as do real events.  Benefits: ~By imagining scenes that produce serenity, immunity is bolstered and stress hormones are reduced.  ~Listening to music also assists in a more effective imagery session. ~ Chemical reactions have a direct and positive affect on the immune system as modulation of neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and messenger molecules are occurring within the body.
