Hydration and the immune System by Jean Watson

Image

We are living in very different times right now. And I have to ponder the question why are we not teaching people about the importance of a strong immune system? Lots of talk of keeping our distance and wearing our masks. Yet why are we not teaching how important it is to build our immune systems during this pandemic?  Our bodies are a beautiful and yet complex system that will work well, if we do our best to take care of it. So I would like to talk about a very important way to keep our health and immune system up with hydration.

Business Member SPOTLIGHT of Dale Choquette by Tom Kernaghan

Image

Dale Choquette has run a dozen marathons and she is still running on full. This is not surprising when you consider that Dale is a Certified Master Trainer in Human Relationships with more than 20 years’ experience in corporate and professional development, and has worked with a vast array of teams ranging from a martial arts dojo to large organizations. It also makes perfect sense when you realize that her focus is on teaching her clients to gain what they need to cross their finish lines: personal insight. 

Also a veteran speaker and the author of Excuse me, I’m Being Audacious, Dale’s understanding is clear and broad: all success is built on healthy human relationships, relationships are built on effective communication, and effective communication requires a keen insights into how the interplay of different personalities works — and what to do when it doesn’t. Most importantly, she understands that leadership is an inside job; it’s about knowing oneself and leading oneself.

About Donna Fairhurst of Soul Full Solutions

Image

I empower Souls in Motion to achieve Balance, Clarity, & Coherence, mentally, physically, emotionally, & spiritually.

I am an Intuitive Life/Soul Coach, Reiki Master, Psychic Medium, Empath, Auric & Chakra Intuitive, as well as an EFT & NLP Practitioner.

I was born just short of legally blind, but able to see, hear, and feel the colour, vibration, & energy fields all around me.  Seeing, hearing, and speaking with spirit was a normal occurrence for me as a child. The isolation of contracting polio at age 1, living mostly in a remoter area in SW Alberta, and moving three times before the age of five gave me no sense that I was different from other children until I started school.  I became what I call an integrated learner using all my senses. I became so used to relying on alternative senses that my parents did not even realize I couldn’t see the big E on an eye chart until I was tested late in childhood.

My Journey by Barbara Wellborn

Image

I am grounded in a way that I have never been before.  I have learned to recognize my body’s signals and to embrace the lessons she is asking me to learn.  I can stand in a place of clarity and neutrality that allows me to be the observer and no longer the reactor, but it wasn’t always that way.

When I was in my late 20’s, my world was quickly unraveling.  On the outside, I presented well, but on the inside, my life had reached a crossroads of epic proportions – my marriage was dissolving, my first business was failing because the market changed and I failed to adapt and bankruptcy was imminent because of crushing debt.  I desperately tried to cling to what I knew, but every joint in my body was screaming out for change – literally, I was in unbelievable pain that kept me awake at night – endlessly allowing me to mull over my many failures.

Business Member Spotlight of Mimi Thorp by Tom Kernaghan

Image

Seven years ago, Mimi Thorp listened to what her body was saying to her, and then went into action. After receiving BodyTalk sessions that profoundly improved her physical and emotional well-being, she decided to jump in and become a certified practitioner. A powerful modality, the BodyTalk System focuses on the “big picture” of holistic health and the body’s innate wisdom, intuition, and ability to heal itself when its energies are balanced.

Grounded in Western principles of kinesiology and traditional Chinese medicine, this gentle, integrative system treats the individual as a complete and complex system in which the mind, body, and soul must be in alignment in order to reach not only full health but also the fullest potential in life.

Art. Why? – Cherie Hanson

Image

I have come to realize I have a relationship with art and with cultural events that is central to my sense of well being. As I do in all relationships, I step back and analyze the dynamic with a curious mind.
 
What I seek from art is a transformation of self. I stand before a painter that was looking at his concept reality in 1400 and I feel as if I have stepped into his very mind. This was the world he inhabited; these were the beauties of mundanity that surrounded him. What appears on the canvas are the objects limiting and expanding his very sense of his own humanity. And it deepens my understanding of what it means to be mortal beyond the boundaries of my own culture, current normative habits and constructs.

But then, resilience and resolve were nothing new to her.
