THE FLYING GUINEA PIG – AYURVEDA – PART 1

Just Relax – Part One of Three by Mary Taylor Fullerton   There is just no easy way to traverse San Francisco.  Pile-on lane closures, the ubiquitous SF rally about something, a gorgeous (read: crowded) day crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, and my ascent into San Rafael from Half Moon Bay was not exactly calming.  After a long, taxing week – and not only in a literal sense as I actually owe taxes this year – I was looking forward to this experience, my first Ayurvedic package treatment. I work in the mental health field, more from a Westernized approach, as a psychotherapist helping individuals who struggle with mental health and addiction.

His techniques include forgiveness work, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Breath Work.   We had a great drive and it was a rather nice trip down memory lane for me, as the center hosting John’s seminar was just south of good old … Continue reading

THE FLYING GUINEA PIG – Harmonyum

  A Calm I Rarely Get by Erin Hudson When Julia founded Serve the Warrior and asked me to join her on the journey, I had no idea that I would be experiencing and blogging about healing treatments. We knew that along with orchestrating the Serve the Warrior Retreat we also wanted to spread the experience of nontraditional healing modalities to our Veteran community and beyond. Far be it for us to ask someone to have an open mind about something I’m not willing to check out myself, be the “guinea pig” so to say.   I was scheduled to receive a Harmonyum treatment at Naam Yoga in Santa Monica, California. Before I went to Namm for my treatment I did minimal research. I wanted to be, well surprised I guess. Sometimes when I know too much, I have expectations … Continue reading
