Setting Intentions and making Resolutions

Here it is, the new year; a clean slate, time of rebirth and starting over. Out with the old and in with the new. Except after a couple of decades of this clean slate business, we all know it doesn’t really work that way. Come January first, or Sunday morning, or your birthday, it’s still ourselves with all our complexity looking back in the mirror. You again.

Treating Disease that is Not Yet Disease

  Present illness processes are chronic in nature. These complex illnesses are  often difficult to treat, requiring more time to resolve. Treatment involves an understanding of a patient’s health and life from the past in order to perceive correctly the acute presentation of that illness. It is essential, in the treatment of modern chronic illnesses to recognize the past as it is showing up through the present for each specific individual.

Five element aromatherapy

In this class we will experience essential oils organoleptically (using all of our senses) to access the 5 Phase Elements embedded within. This is an experiential and experimental approach, where we will discuss what we discover in order to expand our understanding of the oils. Each session will conclude with a very brief overview of what the existing literature says about each oil.
