Making peace with gravity: realizing human potential through Rolf Structural Integration

BY SHARI HEFTEL
@ VOL 14 ON MAR 06, 2018

Shari Heftel presents about Gravity: that silent, ever present force that constantly pulls us to the ground, is something that most people are aware of, but only peripherally. We all know that if we drop something it will fall to the earth. What most people are not aware of is how gravity is affecting our bodies for good or for bad. How we stand, sit, each step we take, each movement we make, is done with the force of gravity pushing down. When human bodies are misaligned and out of balance, gravity aggravates that condition pushing us further off balance. Bodies that are off balance are constantly fighting with gravity, working harder, struggling to stay upright and fully functioning. Chronic pain, fatigue, emotional distress, and disease in the body can all stem from the misalignment in our bodies. Ida Pauline Rolf, founder of Rolf Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing, believed that when bodies get working appropriately, gravity can flow through and healing can occur. When our bodies are aligned, balanced, organized, and integrated we become more effective human beings, leaving struggle behind allowing human potential and creativity to blossom.

The Healing Power of Visualization

BY LOU BLINN
@ VOL 14 ON MAR 06, 2018

Although Lou Blinn used visualization throughout her life, her journey with it turned profound in January of 2016 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Up to that point, Lou had used visualization primarily for finding peace in the midst of everyday life and had actually gotten pretty good at it!  But in the face of breast cancer it and every other tool in her toolbox completely stopped working. At that time, visualization through sheng zhen became a lifeline for her, literally, in the midst of her trauma ... it provided the path back to peace which for her is God.

The Human Body in Co-Creation

BY LISETTE TEMPLIN
@ VOL 14 ON MAR 06, 2018

Lisette Templin believes that we are not alone in the Universe. When we open our heart to healing, we find ourselves on a path that allows us to experience (and thus use) the life force called Qi. To co-create with this divine life force, we need to fine-tune our bodies to use Qi. We wish to introduce you to the act of co-creating through a meditative art of moving and non-moving forms called Sheng Zhen Gong. Sheng Zhen means the sacred truth of unconditional love. When we regularly practice this meditative state of unconditional love, we move the human body in a way that heals current health issues and also helps prevent disease. Therefore, we experience health and also co-create life.

Depth vs Breadth

BY EDDIE COULSON
@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Eddie  Coulson asks: How does a school truly make an impact on its students, parents and employees? How does a school create meaning beyond the curriculum and content it teaches? How does a school thrive, not just survive? How does a school “go deep” with the people it serves?

These are a few of the questions that motivate leaders to transform their schools into learning organizations, not just places to warehouse students and teachers. Eddie's presentation brings forth ideas that challenge the traditional educational system, spark new ideas and raise new questions about meeting the needs of students, teachers, parents and communities.
