Straighten Up: A Path to a Holistic Lifestyle
Holistic means the sum of all the parts. A holistic lifestyle addresses all of the parts of the human being; body; mind and spirit. The methods include: caring for our bodies inside and out, practices to purify our minds, and cultivating the wisdom that lies beneath the superficial way of seeing things. When we see with wisdom, we can develop our intuitive powers and experience a life of compassion, patience, kindness, gentleness, and trust. Our lives become more peaceful and balanced. We will focus on how our breath affects our nervous system, the importance of healthy organs, ways to balance our physical structure (straighten up) and how our surroundings play a part in a healthy balanced life.

How to Have More Energy and Less Aches & Pain
The fundamental rule of the human body: Your body was designed to move and without, body systems start to fail. However, movement can at times be limited if you find yourself having pain, stiffness or general lack of activity. This restriction of movement can lead to other long-term health problems and chronic pain. The key to being healthy is placing a big emphasis on exercising and movement. In order to keep moving, your body needs to be flexible, strong, have good balance and good nutrition.

Insight Meditation is a practice that allows us to investigate the workings of our minds that we can come to a place where we are able to see the source of things. We can make better decisions and choices to develop an understanding of life where we are not attached to our ego- oriented views. When our mental process is chaotic, our behavior is also chaotic. Meditation seeks to clear the mind and purify it so we can come from a pure place, a cultivation of self- control. Without this, the mind is perpetually spinning. Insight Meditation is a psychological study that helps us to remove psychic irritants such as agitation, fear, worry, greed, envy, jealous, etc. Meditation practice works. It is a discipline like any other discipline that over time produces the benefits of a more peaceful and balanced life.

Fighting For Good Health with Your Fork
It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses including: heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease. We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body's healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. This lecture will cover the topic of Anti- Inflammatory Diet and how it plays a role in a healthy life style.
