Smoking and Mental Wellness

Smoking and Mental Wellness

When the body sets out to decide what to carry forward in life, priority is given to what serves our physical well-being. What few of us understand is how carefully cigarettes are designed to break the bond between body and mind. While breathing slowly through a tube...

Walk to Remember

Walk to Remember

Now this is not the best modelling, because it was taken on Monday three miles from the trailhead in Headwaters Forest Reserve in Humboldt County, but it is an opportunity to emphasize something critical to management of cognitive decline: our conceptual memory is...

Humanity and Cognitive Decline

Humanity and Cognitive Decline

Until recently, my awareness of Dr. Maria Montessori was limited to signage on the educational centers bearing her name. With my focus on cognitive decline (in partnership with Nightingale Dementia Consultants) I was finally compelled to understand her contribution to...

Half Rights

Half Rights

In the NICABM course on Trauma, Thema Bryant-Davis explains that disadvantaged, ethnically recognizable minorities suffer from dissociation, a distancing from the signals they receive from their own body. Living among a majority that cannot read their facial...

Growing from Loss

We feel loss whenever our life changes unexpectedly in ways that disrupt established behaviors. Sometimes that change is for the better, such as when we move to take up a new job, but often it is painful. That pain makes us aware of benefits and virtues that we may not have fully appreciated, which can be an opportunity for growth and new or more complete relationships.

FInding Self Meaning

FInding Self Meaning

I can’t remember a book self-identified as philosophy rising onto the US best seller list. It says something about Asian society that The Courage to be Disliked, an examination of Adlerian psychology, remained on the regional best-seller lists for over a year. The...

You Are Already Amazing

You Are Already Amazing

After reading about an exciting advance, have you ever sought out an expert on the subject? You know, the kind of person who has forgotten more about it than most of us ever knew? It is like exploring a cave with side chambers. They will observe, "Oh, really. That's...

Self Preservation

Self Preservation

Fear and anger are not just transient emotions. They change our brain, preparing us to seek new circumstances. Rather than allowed that natural process to unfold randomly, hypnotherapy ensures that changes in the self reflect our highest values.

Trusting Yourself to Love

Trusting Yourself to Love

If this is your memory of your first relationship, you may hope that therapy would help you find the strength to trust again in other people. But deep down in the subconscious realm, there was a question being asked of the social part of the mind. "Why? This is...
