You Are Not What You Think by Jandy Anderson, Dalian Method Facilitator The other day I was walking home, gazing at the pristine snow on the ground and enjoying the sunshine.

Food is Medicine by Jacqueline May Conte, CNP I bet you’ve heard the famous quote, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. Hippocrates had it right, but somewhere along the line we forgot this brilliant bit of truth. After decades of producing and consuming processed, refined foods out of ease (and comfort), [...]

Heart Medicine

2018-02-16T15:37:57+00:00

Heart Medicine Although I do not appreciate the commercialism of Valentine’s day, I do appreciate the reminder it brings. With my busy day-to-day life, sometimes I forget to tell my family that I love them, I forget to send love to those who have passed, and most often I forget to love myself. This past [...]

Creating Space to Heal by Myriame Lyons, MA, CCC Late last year I worked with a woman who was struggling to cope with her partner’s attitudes towards his Parkinson’s disease.

2018-01-09T15:00:18+00:00

Being Still, the Quiet Hero of Health By Jandy Anderson, Dalian Method Facilitator I like to think of the darkest days of the year as nature’s invitation inward. In our busy society it’s become so hard to be still and do nothing. Really, it’s challenging. But it’s worth it. At the heart of stillness is [...]
