Happy Springing Forward.
This year is beginning to bring interesting and unusual presentation possibilities.
In September I will be in Spokane, Washington doing an all-day presentation at the Music-Thanatology International Conference Voicing Sacred Secrets. My focus will be how to listen to the secrets of our cells to rediscover what our cells and music can teach us about self-care.
What is music-thanatology? It is palliative care that unites music and medicine in end of life care. The “angels” who do this, uses the harp and voice at the bedside to lovingly serve the emotional and spiritual needs of the dying and their loved ones. What an honored gift and calling.
In October, I will be presenting at the IMAGERY INTERNATIONAL conference: Enlivening the Mind-Body-Imagery Connection. My program will be "Accessing Your Cellular Wisdom, an invitation to know your cellular universe!"
What is most interesting about these two conferences I will be focusing on the senses and our cells. More than 20 years ago I put together a major conference on the Senses and Healing- "Come to Your Senses," which was a great success, yet in the present time my work with the senses has been more in the world of wine.
AWAKEN YOUR SENSABILITIES
Also earlier this year, having been asked to consider writing a follow-up book on Secrets of Your Cells, which just came out in Portuguese and French, I proposed a focus on brain neuroplasticity, our cells, and our senses.
The senses are triggers for helping our brain change. They are also doorways into our consciousness, they bring the outside in and also can help us tap into the sacred. So now I begin again to focus on one of my first passions - Sensory Pleasures, getting inside. Tuning into the pleasure helps us stay with creating new habits for health.
As you know another of my passions has been visual - illuminating life through the microscope. To be able to share that with you, I have put up a gallery that offers affordable gift items and prints from my inner space photography. And you can manipulate the images to obtain the effect you desire on a CAFFEINE CUP, pillow, greeting cards or carrying case. Imagine the surprise and inspiration to have photographs of LSD or adrenaline on your walls.
I still do custom photography of wines and other libations, yet wanted to be able to share some of the amazing beauty that’s within us beyond wine. Check it out, and feel free, of course, to purchase a few gifts for yourself and other people you love.
And now an even sexier project is working its way out Sensory Pleasures includes: "Cells and Smells, Wine and Health" and "Winefulness." I now can offer a variety of programs for groups, schools, wineries, and museums. My obsession with Shaping Taste Tasting Shapes is going online on film and soon we will have an online course for Secrets of Your Cells. You can find out more and how you can participate in one of the programs by calling or emailing me. 415-827-8260 firstname.lastname@example.org
And may this spring bring you much blossoming and new growth in the areas of your life that provide the most soulful pleasure.
Blessings of joy,
