Wellbeing & Healing RED ALERT: FDA Set to Ban Your Supplements by Dr. Mercola

According to Dr. Mercola, “The FDA’s new Draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredients threatens to remove some of your most commonly used supplements from the market…Manufacturers of supplements will be forced to conduct expensive safety studies using absurdly high doses, which will force many out of business–effectively eliminating competition to high-priced pharmaceuticals…Defend your right to continue using supplements by taking action now!”

Books Hope – Healing Our People & Earth By Dr. Jude Currivan

Cheryl Shainmark reviews, “This is the book to read for the 2012 shift! Hope is breathtaking in historical and geographical scope, critical analyses, and spiritual perspective. Author Jude Currivan has really nailed it with this one — her global exploration of sacred sites, conflicts ancient and new, and the interaction between people, nations, and the planet are simply stunning… Best of all, this book really is about Hope — it is loaded with specific and cogent suggestions for change, ideas for individual and global transformation, reconciling science and spirit, and more. Currivan makes the case that now is the time, and that we are the solution — and that the earth, extra guidance, and the universe are all waiting to support us in our collective shift.”

Environmental Awareness Hurricane Irene Damage Evident as Flooding Recedes- Vermont Takes A Devastating Hit

Various sources report, “Of the 11 towns that had been severed from the outside world, the final one to be reached by rescuers was tiny Wardsboro, a village of 850 in the Green Mountains. The community is little more than a post office and some houses standing along Route 100, a highway popular in the fall with tourists searching out autumn colors. The National Guard continued to ferry supplies to mountain towns that had no electricity, no telephone service and limited transportation in or out. Eight helicopters were expected to arrive Wednesday with food, blankets, tarps and drinking water.” How To Help With Relief Efforts Included Inside- PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Spirituality Resurrection by Jocelyn Graef: Part 9 in Great Awakening Jocelyn Graef writes, “Yes. We are wishing to welcome you. We are Li Chen. We are most happy to be together with all of you tonight. We are choosing to speak on resurrection. This is certainly one of the celebrations of your great master, Jesus, you are so very fond of here in your western culture. Topic of resurrection is certainly a very vast topic; can be perceived and understood in variety of ways. We will begin with the most obvious, the most direct, and move out from there.”

Spirituality Apologies To The Divine Feminine (From A Warrior In Transition) by Jeff Brown Jeff Brown says, “May you feel the love of the Divine Mother crashing down on your heartfelt shores, graciously lifting you up above the madness of the world, nestling you in the grateful arms of those you have nurtured. Those of us who have received your blessings may not always acknowledge it, but your acts of love have landed within us, growing us stronger and infusing us with love’s light.”

Spirituality What Is A Miracle? by Bernie Seigel, MD

Bernie Seigel explains, “Accept the fact that we are all living miracles and that we are here to learn and become complete as other forms of life are. When you stop to appreciate the miracle, life becomes more interesting and offers much greater potential. I hope some day we will be as interested in exploring our inner space and not just outer space because we are all part of creation. We are all part of the same system. We don’t have to go far to understand how and why.”

Consciousness The Global Coherence Initiative by The Global Coherence Initiative says, “The Global Coherence Initiative is a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart-focused care and intention, to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace. This project has been launched by the Institute of HeartMath®, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), a recognized global leader in researching emotional physiology, heart-brain interactions and the physiology of optimal health and performance…”

Wellbeing & Healing Antibacterial Chemical Raises Safety Issues by Andrew Martin, NY Times

Andrew Martin reports, “Triclosan is often the active ingredient in soaps that are marketed as antibacterial or antimicrobial, even though, in 2005, an F.D.A. advisory panel said triclosan-laced soap was no better at preventing illness than other soap and water…Several have shown that triclosan disrupts the thyroid hormone in frogs and rats, while others have shown that triclosan alters the sex hormones of laboratory animals. Others studies have shown that triclosan can cause some bacteria to become resistant to antibiotics…”

Music Planetary Healing Through the Song of the Feminine by Dr. Sharon Ufberg, D.C. Dr. Sharon Ufberg writes, “Imagine this… you are immersed in a song that sounds so familiar, that calls you home, that touches your heart and you start to remember who you really are…. This is the intention of a new CD by Devaa Haley Mitchell aptly named, Sacred Alchemy. This music gives you an experience, through the senses, so you can feel what it means to embrace the goddess within. Devaa Haley Mitchell gives us access to our sacred feminine selves by sharing several interpretations of the goddess through her musical arrangements and vocal expressions.”


The Chi Center: Wisdom Healing Qigong Website™

Master Mingtong Gu

“As millions of people in China have already discovered, Qigong essentially reverses the aging process, while reducing stress, preventing illness, curing disease, and enhancing the overall quality of life.” – Master Mingtong Gu

Wisdom Healing Qigong was developed by Dr. Ming Pang, a Qigong Grandmaster trained in both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. He synthesized his profound medical knowledge of the old and new healing sciences with the ancient Qigong practice. The result is an integrative system of self-healing and cultivation that is suited for the modern pragmatic world.

Mingtong Gu is an internationally recognized teacher and healer who received his training from a variety of Grandmasters in China and at the world’s largest Qigong hospital. This “medicine-less” hospital, Zhineng Qigong Center, has treated over 200,000 patients, with over 185 different illnesses, and with a 95% effective improvement rate. He is the founder of The Chi Center and Wisdom Healing Foundation and has taught Qigong to thousands of people in the USA, China, and Europe.

Master Gu observed thousands of cases of chronic and “incurable” diseases being healed at the Zhineng Medicineless Hospital. Witnessing these profound healing experiences inspired his dedication to the teaching and practice of Qigong healing. Through this practice, he recovered from his own chronic conditions of asthma, scoliosis, back pain and kidney weakness. And in working with his students he found his life passion, purpose, and fulfillment in this union of spiritual practice and applied healing wisdom.

Master Gu’s teaching emphasizes activating the power of inner self-healing which facilitates the release of chronic illness, while improving health and well-being. Deep awakening and transformation typically arise in this process of healing. Wisdom Healing™ Qigong integrates many forms of traditional Qigong with Eastern and Western medicine. It is a concentrated and powerful system engaging all levels of physical, mental, emotional, and soulful healing.

Through posture, movement, breath and mental concentration, Qigong offers a methodology to rediscover the inner medicine – chi, the vital and healing resource within us – and to magnify the exchange between ourselves and nature, enabling us to fuse with the infinite creative power of the universe that ultimately is the origin of love, compassion, and the source of all healing.
