Jiddu Krishnamurti was a sage, philosopher, and free thinker who encouraged people to look within for solutions to their problems and the problems in the world. He was born to a middle class family in South India on May 11, 1895, and left this earth on February 17, 1986. (1)
As followers of his work might know, Krishnamurti was “discovered” as a child by Theosophical Society leaders Annie Besant and Bishop Leadbeater. They claimed he was the “world teacher” the society had been waiting for. He would go on to have “mystical experiences” as a young man that provided him with a new, unique vision on life. (1)

The phenomenon of human touch is at the heart of the healing traditions we work with, yet many take it for granted. We sometimes construe the word “touch” to be something overtly sexual, but what about the helping and healing kind? Continue reading Healing With Your Hands – A Forgotten Art

Nature is a wonderful thing. Not only does she bless us with an endless array of floral beauty that is a feast for our eyes, but then she gives us the double whammy of divine aromas and fragrances as well.

In hindsight, I recognize that the dairy in the butter and the refined sugar in the cinnamon blend probably weren’t helping my digestive issues, yet somehow this meal always made me feel better. How does this make any sense? Herein lies the mystery of the placebo effect. Continue reading The Power Of Human Thought: How The Placebo Effect Actually Works In Favour Of Your Health
