July 2023 Newsletter

Updated: Aug 5, 2023

Greetings and salutations lovely peeps

We’ve just had, 1st August, the second super full moon in a series of 4. Also Lammas,as the First Harvest, fell on the same day so a double wammy of energy and celebrations.

As most of you know I’m passionate about CST and the CranioSacral Rhythm, and I’m curious about what my patients experience on the couch. How do they experience the CranioSacral Rhythm?

Craniosacral Therapy is a treatment has been my ‘go to therapy’ for the last 25 years. It (and my yoga practice) has always served me well for either physical pain that I can't quite get to the bottom of, or recovering from illness or the beginning of an illness. It has worked for me when I've needed something deeper and intuitive to help, when I’ve needed to clear an old trigger or pattern in the tissue. I have felt this strongly at this particular time in our human history when I believe we are recovering from the trauma of lock-downs (still) and changing and transitioning how we show up in the world.

If you have any questions about CST, either person to person or remote I am very happy to answer those questions.

From an email from Chiropractor, Dr. Greg Zoldy, CMCC

“I don't know about you, but I've had to make a few ‘pivots’ already [these past few] years.

Rather than look at any unexpected challenges negatively, I try to pat myself on the back or give thanks to someone who helped me through them.

I love what Brendon Burchard [Brendon Burchard is a high performance coach, bestselling author, and one of the most-watched, quoted, and followed motivational speakers in history.] says about confidence....”

"Confidence,...real confidence, deep confidence, soul-driven confidence... is really the belief in my ability to figure things out."

Brendon also is very specific that we should not always attach our confidence to an image or result, but rather to our effort and the process.

When you "honour the struggle" as he says, you build the muscles of confidence as you work through it, believing and keeping your desire and hunger alive and focused so that you move towards your dreams and goals.

I won't make this a huge long email, but as you can tell, I get all fired up and geek out about personal growth stuff.

I just hope that so far this year you are doing great, and "filling up your cup" so to speak in the areas of your life that matter the most.” [A great sentiment which I pass on to you.]

Last week I had a 5 day painting course - Jaw Dropping Art Adventure, looking not so much at how or what to paint, but the psychology of ‘me’ painting. What is happening with me when I paint? The alchemy of painting. What is my inner critic saying, is my saboteur at work, how do I show up to do this work that I love? So it will be interesting to see what emerges onto the canvas from this time with Jessica. And, by the way, I love finding new homes for my paintings.

This week I picked windfall apples and foraged for rowan berries. There are a number of different ways to prepare and use rowan berries: Pickled, dried, frozen to concentrate their sweetness and then cooked, cooked from raw, preserved in syrup, made into jam, and a funky technique of fermenting them in a water filled mason jar in the fridge like the Scandinavians do with lingon berries.

It is important to note that they should not be consumed raw. Raw Rowan berries contain parasorbic acid, known to cause kidney damage, stomach upset and many other possible complications. However, when exposed to heat or extreme cold for a prolonged period of time this compound is converted to the safe sorbic acid, which the body can make use of for promoting health.

For the months of July and August I will be changing my newsletter and blog routine to one Friday Finale blog and one newsletter for each month.

If you have any questions or comments about anything in this newsletter please feel free to contact me.

Summer blessings and wishing you all a nurturing summer break for you and yours.
