What we're about

This group is for you if • You want to learn how to be healthy and stay healthy by natural means • You appreciate experts and professionals, but you'd really like to have a say in your own health! • You want to hear speakers talk about the latest ideas about how the universe, and our bodies and minds, work • You believe there are better, more holistic ways of healing other than drugs or surgery, and / or • You want to meet like-minded souls. This group will also have study groups for those who want to study a topic more deeply and to do so in a social setting. I also will present speakers who can share their professional knowledge (an M.D. who likes alternative, natural methods), their amateur love of something (a pickllng expert? someone who loves to make tempeh and tofu? someone who is an expert about the practical use of quantum physics?), and/or their personal healing experience ("I got cancer, and here's how I cured it without chemotherapy"). I personally know and hope to get Tom Monte, John Kozinski, Michio Kushi, and / or Rodd Stockwell, M.D. as early speakers. Who would you like to listen to? Perhaps YOU could be a speaker, if you have an area of expertise or are a professional in some health-related or consciousness-related field. Health professionals could give informative talks that would be educational as well as introduce your business. Meetings will range from a low or no-cost meeting where a few of us gather to read a chapter from some interesting book together and then talk about it, up to a more expen$ive all-day seminar with some nationally renowned authority. When you join, please answer the new member questions and tell us about yourself. Fee free to email me with requests, and also if you have a large enough home and would like to host a meeting. Thanks, Paul G. >>About me, your group organizer, if you are curious: I changed my diet and thinking back in 7th grade in 1967 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

HEALING MIRACLES FROM BRAIN'S NEUROPLASTICITY WITH BARRY HARRIS

Waltham Chiropractic - Dr. John Duffy

The Discovery of the Brain's Neuroplasticity as an Explanation for many Miracles of Physical Healing with Barry Harris Barry will introduce us to the primary evidence that as quantum physics explains, consciousness creates the brain, and the brain does not create consciousness as previously believed. The presentation will be more "good news" that we have been "Beggars At God's Banquet," unaware we are creators, and thus unaware of our incredible power. Suggested Donation: $10 About Barry: Barry Harris majored in quantum physics in college, andattended a “New Universe” workshop taught by David Bohm (one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century who suggested the universe as a hologram), and Karl Pribram (who showed the brain as the decoder of holograms), and took a weeklong course with Karl Pribram’s graduate student assistant. Barry also worked at the Hippocrates Institute in Boston, writing health booklets for Dr. Ann Wigmore, discoverer of wheatgrass and founder of the live food movement. Hippocrates Institute is a unique healing center with a powerful spiritual focus, and an extreme dietary regime which often attracted clients who Western medicine had labeled terminally ill. While there Barry witnessed many miraculous recoveries. Later Barry witnessed more miracles while working for four years in various centers around the U.S. founded by Viktoras Kulvinskas, Dr. Wigmore's Director. Obsessed with the secret to miracles, Barry did 20 years of independent research connecting quantum physics to Energy Medicine, cellular biology, neurophysiology, mind/body medicine, effect of emotions on health, wherever the trail led, etc. Barry's research has been the source for the course "Beggars At God's Banquet: Miracles Are Our Birthright" which he has been presenting for the past nine years. Barry's book "Beggars At God's Banquet" based on the contents of the course will be published by X-Libris Publishing in the spring. Barry is also a singer/voice teacher who teaches "Voice as a Path of Spiritual and Emotional Healing". His voice students learn the relationship of ego to breath patterns, and how to surrender control to a higher power. Barry is qualified to teach about miracles, because he had his own miracle. He restored his singing voice by recognizing the need for spiritual grace and surrender of control to a higher power, after Western doctors said he had damaged his voice beyond repair.

Community Dinner and Going Inward with Evan Root

99 Crescent St, Auburndale, MA 02466

DELICIOUS DINNER (and Take-Out) Prepared by DAVID SNIECKUS - MACROBIOTIC CHEF AND COUNSELOR - At 7 p.m. at David’s, Margaret’s and Abigail's home in Newton, MA Friday, February 8, 2019 Menu Carrot and Ginger Soup Brown Rice Chickpeas with Wakame Broccoli and Kale Butternut Squash Pickled Daikon Berries Pie Kukicha Tea (See dinner logistics below.) ********************************************************************************* Followed by "Going Inward" with Evan Root The exploration of the self Is like pealing away The layers of an onion To find it’s center. There is always another layer... Until there isn’t. Donation welcome. Evan Root's Bio: Evan’s quest brought him to Zen Macrobiotics in the 1960s. Together with the Kushi's in Boston, he helped establish the foundation for that movement in the US. His path then took him to Japan for several years where he studied the language. His experience with this study opened his eyes to ‘see’ outside the western worldview in which he was raised. After returning to the USA in the early 70s, he went through a long period where he became increasingly disillusioned with everything he had believed in, including his own sense of himself. In 1981, another shift in perspective, in which he saw nothing as separate, precipitated an awakening from the ‘dream of a separate self’. After a period of reorientation, he began facilitating events to provide space for the unfolding of human consciousness. In 1993, he founded Kindling Point kindlingpoint.org, an educational initiative fostering awareness of the non-separate nature of life. His work has taken him to many countries around the world to facilitate in diverse environments, including prisons, businesses, government and not-for-profit organizations, and principally through holding gatherings, courses and meetings for individuals who are drawn to participate. ********************************************************************************* Most ingredients are organic and of the highest standards.
