Come on in My Kitchen

A new `engine' suddenly revs into life. I was once stuck in traffic with my wife. The street was completely blocked due to a serious accident; There was a makeshift exit on the right, so we just took that, following our instincts. Eventually we stumbled upon a beautiful lodge where we stopped for a bite to eat and got to know some nice people. The gridlock was still visible on the horizon, but we relaxed and used the opportunity of this downtime for ourselves. We still have good memories of the event to this day (notwithstanding the distressing accident). G4 AND SWARM INTELLIGENCE This list, as you can imagine, is highly subjective. Everyone is going to have favorite movies, articles, and songs, and your preferences will depend on your culture, your age, your predilections, your genetics, and, well, just about everything else. You can make your own list and I hope you do! What follows are some suggestions of articles to pick up, songs to listen to, and movies to watch--simply the ones I found most helpful, artistic, creative, and thoughtful. THE BEST MOVIES ABOUT DEATH Don't you love it when the bad guy gets his head blown off? But that's not what this list is about. These movies are about death. They explore death. They offer something new about the processing of death, fears, corpses, afterlife, the mucky real stuff, and they're the Really Good Movies, as in, High Art Category, in our humble opinion. SHIFT ATTENTION TO SUPPORT STABILITY: TRAUMA-SENSITIVE MODIFICATIONS Offering students and clients basic psychoeducation about the role of attention--including the Medusa problem--can empower their practice.

We want survivors to be informed about potential pitfalls of mindfulness. Like the window of tolerance, Medusa is a basic frame we can offer people to guide their overall practice. In my second session with Dylan, I spoke to him about the Medusa problem. He was frustrated that his meditation practice--which had been grounding and vitalizing for several years--was making things worse. In our first conversation, my goal was to empathize with Dylan and normalize his experience. He'd gone through something traumatic, and his mind and body were responding in ways intended to keep him safe. I wanted Dylan to know how much respect I had for the parts of him that were trying to protect him, even though I knew they were causing him distress. I hadn't thought of it that way, Dylan said in our conversation, surprised by what I'd covered. Furthermore, many of the foods that women find make PMS worse - chocolate, red meat and alcohol - all contain either high levels of histamine or its culinary mother histadine. It would be disingenuous to ignore the cyclical nature of menstruation, and we know that this cycle runs on oestrogen and progesterone. Many of the symptoms of PMS have (correctly or otherwise) been attributed to an imbalance of these two hormones, especially progesterone. Histamine and these hormones are linked, though: histamine increases progesterone levels,21 and experts believe that mast cells become more active and numerous in the uterus in response to these two hormones. What this amalgam of East and West is proposing is that when the East states that the Liver regulates menstruation, one of the ways it does this is through the metabolism of the hormone histamine. If mast cells and histamine lie near the root of women's monthly problems, curing them may not be as simple as using antihistamines. It has been known for over 70 years23 that this same pathology often underlies asthma (in Chinese medicine this variant is seen as Liver Qi stagnation affecting Lungs), but antihistamines have had very little success here despite the fact that successful treatments reduce histamine levels. A trial of antihistamines at the beginning of a woman's period would, however, be interesting. The Liver ensures the smooth flow of Qi There is little way to compare this to the Western view of the body because Western medicine ignores Qi. I'd be happy to cry, but it's as if the tears can't find the way to my eyes. They stick in my throat instead.

So many feelings, and I don't know what to do with them. This isn't an academic discussion, as so many debates around forgiveness are. It is pain and guts and suffering and shame. I feel split open. Sometimes I'm irritated when she says this, like she's being patronising or changing the subject, but for some reason right now I hear the compassion in it, and I realise that my chest is tight with the effort of not breathing. I sigh it out, deliberately. And then the words come again. I feel relieved, like a pressure has been lifted. Ask the provider how soon you can make an appointment. Unfortunately, in some areas of the country, providers are so busy that they have waiting lists. Others may have a limited number of appointment times available. Ask about the provider's hours -- especially if you need evening or weekend hours. BPD treatment requires regularly scheduled sessions, so make sure you can set up a weekly meeting time that works for both you and the provider. Do you offer telehealth services? As you know, technology has transformed our entire economy as well as healthcare. With telemental health, a therapist counsels through a video chat service (or in some cases, via phone). Advantages include ease of access, no transportation issues, sometimes greater accessibility, and often shorter wait times. Some people feel more comfortable interacting in this manner. I started an Asperger's support group and began speaking publicly about Asperger's and my life with it at universities, schools, and hospitals. I wrote my article.

The most exciting thing I've ever done is fly in an F-15 fighter jet and a military helicopter! It all began when I saw the movie Top Gun in 1997, and my special-interest laserlike focus took over. By the end of the movie, I made up my mind that I wanted to fly in a fighter jet. I started picking up every military aviation magazine available and began writing articles for several of them. I taught myself how to use a very expensive camera, with a foot-long lens, and eventually started getting top-quality photos of jets flying at speeds of more than 400 miles per hour. Before long, my military aviation articles and photos were being published worldwide. I got to spend time with the Blue Angels of the U. Navy and a Fighter Wing of an air force base. Head and Neck Signal The body language of the head should be combined with the body language of the neck. As far as general posture is concerned, the crown should be placed naturally. The body language transmitted by the head and neck involves various ranges of motion. However, it must be noted that the head's position should not cause the channel to stretch or compress for a long time without relief. If the neck is tightened in this way, it may inhibit its ability to convey body language information effectively. Some researchers and health practitioners have also found an association between long-term lousy head and neck posture and negative mental states. Therefore, body language involving the head and neck should not cause fatigue and should be as natural as possible. As with all kinds of body language, it is useful to understand as many other related factors as possible to identify the meaning accurately. Nodding of the head is usually considered a yes sign. My underlying assumption was that she knew what was best for her and had reached out to me specifically for a reason. My job was to find out what that was while not making any assumptions about her--which had happened to her on retreat.

Again, this wasn't a matter of political correctness but a responsiveness to social context. I wanted to acknowledge the oppression she'd faced and interact skillfully with her inside of that. Oppression can be defined as an unjust exercise of power and authority. Being oppressed, bell hooks succinctly wrote, means the absence of choices (1984, p. Like trauma, oppression is interconnected to structures big and small. As I covered in article 1, interpersonal trauma is inseparable from systems of oppression that have exploitation at their root. At the level of an individual, oppression can be internalized, as in the case when a person comes to believe stereotypes associated with a group they are a part of. Interpersonally, oppression occurs in a number of ways, from overtly aggressive acts, such as when a Muslim woman is verbally attacked on a bus because she is wearing a hijab, to less visible, covert interactions, such as when a Black family moves into an otherwise friendly White neighborhood and no one welcomes them. Once many people are in G4, everything takes its course. Nobody needs to worry about anything. Everyone gives energy and receives energy. It's an intelligent process of mutual creation. Everybody is looking at those around them, and everything is intertwined - without direction and without rules. In G4, each person follows their instincts, and the necessary things and people are attracted; It's simply doing, without intention and ambition behind it. It's the motivation to exist from within oneself, but not outside of one's own destiny. This system follows a cosmic order that's comparable to a shoal of fish or a flock of birds, in which all members move at the same rhythm and in the same direction - because all individuals are in G4 and are connected to one another through this higher consciousness. Helga from Munich, Germany Like all our lists, they're offered in what we consider the best order to experience them organization, rather than, say, alphabetical order. We thought it would be fun to shoot around through time (Golden Age of Hollywood to current day, foreign film to American, serious with funny).
