Neurodegenerative disease is on the rise. The most common of these is Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's Dementia, with an estimated combined total of 60 million cases worldwide. New research brings us closer to identifying risk factors in the development of neurological illness, in addition to finding ways to slow its progression and possibly reverse neurological damage. We'll be discussing some of the most recent findings concerning neurodegenerative disease and how craniosacral therapy can be a significant and supportive treatment intervention.

AM: "Rituals: Establishing a 'Time-Out' for Body, Mind and Spirit" with Gina Flores, LMT, CSTA-CP
We live in a highly charged and anxiety-producing time, where time itself can seem like a potential enemy with all of us over-scheduled, over-worked, over-tired, over-anxious and just over it all. This kind of energy creates patterns -- both as individuals and collectively -- in our minds, our bodies and our spirits. In times like these we need to create rituals that are personally significant and that establish a "time-out" for body, mind and spirit. We need to change the vibration, elevating it in some way so that we can stay clear and grounded in our personal power and in our grace, both for ourselves, our loved ones, our clients and our communities at large. Gina will share with you things she has found helpful: Meditation; Breath with Intention and Movement; Sound, Either Vocalizing or Bowls, Bells, Chimes, etc. and Aromatherapy. She will offer a guided meditation, some breath exercises with and without movement, and Aromatherapy suggestions. She hopes that any or all of these suggestions will speak to you in a way that will help you create your own personal daily rituals.
