THE GIFTS & MESSAGES IN YOUR EMOTIONS

Imagine the edges of your body being the walls of the instrument, and imagine feeling the hollowness inside — your body is the resonance chamber for the sound your particular instrument will emit. Now imagine the music being played — the waves of sound moving through the piano, the guitar, or the drum. You know that these vibrations, though invisible, are absolutely real. You can hear them. The walls of the instrument are moving to [...]

PONDERING LIFE IN BETWEEN: A COLLABORATION

I thought I had purpose in my life, but the coronavirus quarantine and its effects have left me feeling a bit lost. Family gatherings are my jam. A family dinner once a week is very important to me, especially since I became a nana. Travel is also a passion of mine. Seeing new places, experiencing new adventures, meeting new people — anticipating the next trip is part of my DNA. Both of these bring me immense joy, but both of these were put on hold [...]

LEADING THROUGH CRISIS

2020-08-01T07:56:31-04:00

Photo on Unsplash By Alycia Huston Each and every one of us has found ourselves navigating through a sea of emotions during these past couple of months — anger, fear, gratitude, anxiety, depression, joy. It can literally change from one moment to the next. I believe our emotions are energy in motion. We have seen through numerous brain and body scans that human beings emit energy, it’s a fact. That’s exactly why you may find yourself crying one moment and laughing the next. Simply said, when you feel a particular emotion and begin to move through it, you’re in a state [...]

I go to my timeshare in Florida every winter. It was especially great fun when my husband was alive. We rented a spacious cabana with two comfy lounge chairs, complete with an umbrella for perfect shading. We’d be happy as clams for the whole day. You’d find us on the beach every sunny day. There are literally miles of crunchy sand to walk on, explore, gather shells, and watch boats [...]

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY: A NEW TREATMENT PATHWAY FOR ALZHEIMER’S?

2020-08-01T07:56:46-04:00

By Allison Downing Jordan Alzheimer’s disease is preventable and even reversible. That is what craniosacral therapy researchers are finding at the Upledger Institute.  Michael Morgan, LMT, CST-D has been an instructor of craniosacral therapy at the Upledger Institute for 18 years. After losing both his mother and sister to Alzheimer’s and being faced with the powerlessness of caring for them, Morgan devoted his skillset to leading teams in research to see if craniosacral therapy could alter, slow, prevent, or even reverse Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is currently theorized to be a result of damage to the brain via plaque that clogs the brain’s [...]

THE DIGNITY OF AGING AT HOME

2020-08-01T07:56:54-04:00

Photo by Gus Ruballo on Unsplash By Tiffany Edison Nobody likes to think about aging, myself included. Yet, there’s a trend here in the United States known as “aging in place.” As defined by the CDC, aging in place is “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.” It should come as no surprise that the world of interior design has started to ramp up efforts to assist aging adults. As the latest U.S. census results confirm, senior citizens comprise the country’s fastest growing population. Our homes hold [...]
