Reflections on Loneliness, with Matt Khan

“Loneliness is a bridge between feeling left out in the world and being one with all that is. When loneliness arises, it invites you to slow down and deeply experience exactly how it feels, without an interest in imagining what is missing from your life. While it may first seem like the heartbreak of personal despair, such feelings equally have the power to reveal an unsuspecting communion with your true eternal nature. It is here where nothing is actually needed for you to be happy, peaceful, and free. This is by far the most threatening realization any personal boundary may encounter, but the most liberating insight you were born to explore.”

“Loneliness isn’t a matter of feeling ignored or unsupported by others. It is noticing how infrequently you love yourself along the way. When loving yourself becomes a primary response to whatever transpires, the pain, despair and isolation of feeling alone blossoms into the grace and solitude of heartfelt relief.”

Mushrooms, Mycology of Consciousness – Paul Stamets, EcoFarm Conference Keynote 2017

“Mycodiversity is our biosecurity. Let’s celebrate decomposition. Let’s let it rot.”

Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen your understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep you take on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

SOUND MEDITATION | ISOCHRONIC TONES AND BINAURAL BEATS (1.5 hrs.)

– this meditation does what a daily microdose of ORME (white powdered gold) can do for your brain, with the obvious exception that, when ingesting the ORME, your beneficial results are permanent and cumulative.
– Headphones are recommended, but not required.
UNDERSTANDING BRAIN PHYSIOLOGY
Brain hemisphere synchronization may result in increased cognitive performance.
There are many potential benefits, but the primary intentions for this video is to:
Build new neural pathways and strengthen existing ones
Stimulate, synchronize and synergize both brain hemispheres for increased cognitive capabilities and capacity
Aid in the development of concentration, learning, and memory
Balance moods by reducing stress hormones and increasing production of “feel-good” neurotransmitters and hormones
The cerebral hemispheres are divided into a right hemisphere and a left hemisphere.
These hemispheres communicate with each other through a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers called the corpus callosum. Each hemisphere of the brain is dominant for other behaviors. Most people use one hemisphere more than the other, creating an imbalance.
During meditation, the corpus callosum becomes deeply stimulated. New foundations of neural pathways are built which allows both hemispheres to communicate in sync and to a higher degree.
The right side of the brain controls muscles on the left side of the body and the left side of the brain controls muscles on the right side of the body. Also, in general, sensory information from the left side of the body crosses over to the right side of the brain and information from the right side of the body crosses over to the left side of the brain.
The brain consists of three main parts: the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem.
The cerebrum: composes most of the brain, in simplified terms it is involved in thinking, problem solving, memory, feeling and movement.
The cerebellum: located at the back of the brain, under the cerebrum. In simplified terms, it controls coordination and balance.
The brain stem: sits below the cerebrum and in front of the cerebellum. In simplified terms, it connects the brain to the spinal cord and controls automatic functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and digestion.
The brain is separated into four lobes: the frontal, temporal, occipital, and parietal lobes.
The frontal lobe: involved in problem solving, discernment, memory, language, personality, empathy, concentration, motor function, social and carnal behavior.
The temporal lobe: involved in creative insight, memory acquisition and skills, organization of sensory input such as auditory, visual perception, language comprehension, verbal organization, long-term memory, and personality.
The occipital lobe: the center of our visual perception system. It is involved in visuospatial processing, hallucinations, illusions, discrimination of movement and color.
The parietal lobe: One region involves sensation and perception. The other region involves integrating sensory input. It is involved in writing, mathematics, language, visual perception, spacial navigation, memory, personality.
The right hemisphere is considered the feminine or chaotic side of the brain and is generally responsible for: creativity, intuition, visualization, musical abilities, spacial abilities, non-linear thought, facial recognition and is dominant in the control of emotional processing and expression.
The left hemisphere is considered the masculine or orderly side of the brain and is generally responsible for: organization, logic, analytical, scientific, calculatory, linguistic, and mathematical thought, in addition to practical, linear, and time-oriented thinking strategies.

La’au Lapa’au | Emulsions Containing Echinacea Extract Reduce Body and Scalp Pruritis

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Pruritis (itching) is a common symptom of inflammatory skin diseases and is strongly associated with dry skin. Topical emollients to replenish lipids and moisturizers to hydrate the skin are first-line treatments; however, the effects are often unsatisfactory. Treatment for three months with a water-in-oil (w/o) emulsion containing a proprietary echinacea (Echinacea purpurea, Asteraceae) root extract was found to significantly alleviate pruritis associated with subacute or chronic atopic eczema (AE) in one clinical study; however, the effectiveness of the echinacea w/o emulsion in the treatment of acute or chronic pruritis not associated with AE has not been clinically assessed. Although w/o emulsions are usually more effective than oil-in-water (o/w) emulsions for the treatment of pruritis, w/o emulsions are not cosmetically acceptable therapeutics for dry, itchy scalp. Therefore, a novel o/w emulsion containing echinacea extract and a shampoo containing echinacea extract were developed. The purpose of this three-part open-label, non-randomized, uncontrolled…

Meditation | The Devi Prayer – HYMN TO THE DIVINE MOTHER (20 mins.)

The Devi Prayer is a Mantra evoking the 108 Names of the Divine Mother.

 

In English:

The Divine Mother is everywhere.

She is in everything.

She is the Divine Essence that lives within all beings.

Her domain is the field of life, for she gives

to all beings the sustenance that is needed for life.

Her beauty lives in the natural world,

and spans the universes in all their splendor.

She has been called by many names,

for all traditions recognize Her.

Into each consciousness the knowledge is given

of the sacredness of life.

This sacredness IS the Mother.

She is the holy generator of the physical world,

joined to the heart and soul of every living thing.

All of the Earth is one with Her.

All beings of the Earth owe their life to Her,

for she is the Mother of all, the One who bestows

all gifts of life.

Her gifts come to the deserving and to the

non-deserving alike, for the sun does not choose

upon whom to shine.

She is the source of Divine blessing, the part

of the Oneness that bestows the graces that fill life.

We have not seen Her because her being is

cloaked in silence.

She emerges now as part of the Oneness where

she has always resided, blessing all, giving to all.

All who bow before Her are sustained by the life

within them.

All who honor Her are sustained by life’s gifts

both within themselves and beyond.

The purpose of existence is to join with Life that lives

in all dimensions and all realms of being.

It is the Mother that creates this evolving,

this unfolding journey,

for she is the fabric of Time itself,

the means by which all things grow.

She is the template for life that exists within Her —

the substance and form of all that shall ever come to be.

May all be blessed by the blessings of the

Divine Oneness.

Herbal Remedies May Inspire Future Treatments for High Blood Pressure

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

People have used herbs as medicine for thousands of years. Today, with medical researchers continually hunting for better alternative treatments, some are revisiting these remedies. A recent study looks at herbs that people believe can treat hypertension.

Currently, hypertension affects an estimated 1 in 3 adults in the United States.

Although dietary and lifestyle changes can sometimes be sufficient, medication is necessary in some cases.

Antihypertensive medications work well for some people but not for others, and the side effects can be unpleasant.

For these reasons, researchers are keen to find innovative ways to tackle the growing issue of hypertension.

Some scientists are turning back the clock and looking to ancient herbal remedies. Humans have been self-medicating with the herbs that they find since before history began.

The fact that people have used these treatments for millennia is certainly not evidenced that they are effective, but they are surely worth a second look.
