According to the Centre d’etudes ethniques des universities montrealaises,  40.4% of Canadians pray or meditate on their own weekly.  Yet many people still find meditation to be a challenging and elusive practice. Lisa Wimberger’s goal is to make meditative practices accessible and easy, while still being effective and impactful.

Lisa Wimberger has innovated modern meditation utilizing the latest research in neuroscience as an answer to bring deep healing to victims of trauma.  Based on thirty years of experience in various forms of meditation, Wimberger developed NeurosculptingⓇ as a way to heal herself from seizures where conventional medicine had failed.

Touching the Stove: Yes, Yoga can Hurt!

When it comes to yoga, my strategy is simple: “No pain…no pain!”

Yet this past April I voluntarily entered the zone of pain under hot lights at a West Oakland photography studio.

My goal was to take 260 photos that visually depict common alignment mistakes in 50 different yoga asanas for our Blissology Yoga Teacher Training manual.

I decided to touch the stove and found out it is hot. Really hot!

It’s not just theoretical—yoga can hurt.

A few years ago now many of us in the yoga community got our Mula Bandhas* in a knot over William J. Broad’s article “Yoga can wreck your Body” in The New York Times. To many, that was like an avid sports fan crying foul on his or her home team instead of cheering them on.

I wasn’t shocked at all. I have always maintained that improperly performed yoga can hurt you more than most nasty UFC jujitsu submission holds.

Like a lot of yoga teachers, I spend a lot of time teaching people how to do the poses with safe joint alignment. I thought about how great it would be if the students had a visual resource of these mistakes that they could refer to during our training and in the months and years following.

Tapping…EFT…Emotional Freedom Techniques…perhaps a friend told you about it or you saw it demonstrated on Dr Oz, or saw a film clip of a pitcher doing it in the dugout or viewed the BBC report this past year on the emerging efficacy and research on this healing phenomenon. Whether you have heard of it or not, its worldwide use is skyrocketing and the increasing body of published research continues to grow alongside its use. Supporters have included luminaries such as Candace Pert, PhD., Bruce Lipton, PhD., and Deepak Chopra, MD

What is it? What is it used for and can you learn to do it for yourself? Continue reading “Tapping Into a Renewed Life” by Craig Weiner

YogaCity NYC’s Jessica Mahler sat down to chat with her for a better under­stand­ing of shaman­ism and what kind of power can be found in our breath.

Anyone can be consid­ered a shaman, explained Star, a 60-year old woman with long blond locks and a kind face. “It’s a call­ing, really.” But it was a long, painful jour­ney for Star to fully under­stand hers in this life.

Star always felt differ­ent grow­ing up in west­ern Kentucky in the ’60s. “I was one of those people who was gluten and lactose intol­er­ant, and no one had ever heard of such a thing,” she says. On top of that, she had psychic, intu­itive abilities—abilities that she shared with her grand­mother, creat­ing a special bond between them. Continue reading Presenter Profile | Linda Star Wolf
