Pain as a Doorway to Change: Transforming Your Relationship to Your Body (Podcast)
Wednesday, August 12, 2015 - 4:05pm

You may need: Adobe Flash Player.

Pain, chronic illness, aches and other physical limitations can create a seemingly endless and exhausting cycle of mental and physical distress. In this workshop, Dan Cayer draws on his training as an Alexander Technique teacher and his own experience with chronic pain to demonstrate how we can use mindfulness and other awareness practices to calm our struggles and bring ease to our sufferings. He teaches you how to acknowledge your difficulties with compassion and wisdom, learn to understand your pain and work with it directly, liberating yourself from shame and second-guessing. Dan also provides strategies for finding good posture and inviting relaxation into the body.

Dan Cayer is a nationally certified teacher of the Alexander Technique and a meditator in the Shambhala tradition. After a serious injury left Dan unable to work or carry out household tasks like cleaning dishes, he began studying the Alexander Technique. His return to health, as well as his experience dealing with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, has inspired him to help others. Dan now teaches the Alexander Technique as a method of recovering balance and well-being. He advocates it as a fantastic embodiment of mindfulness and awareness both on and off the cushion.

The Energetics of Food with Lara Adler

This podcast features a lecture by Lara Adler titled the Energetics of Food. Lara Adler is a Holistic Health Coach, specializing in conscious, ethical eating and helping individuals bridge the gap between belief systems and practical day to day life. She guides clients through a journey of self-discovery, teaching them to heal themselves through whole foods and healthy living. 

How do we determine the quality of our food? Is it price? It is slick packaging or special presentation? Is it home-cooked or from a fancy restaurant? How might the ways in which our food is grown or raised influence us as individuals? Which foods are the most nourishing to our spirits, and which ones may contribute to feelings of helplessness, depression and anxiety? Which foods are grounding and focusing, and which foods impart light, flexible energy?
