Did You Know?
A 20-Minute Coffee Nap Makes You More Alert:
Drink a cup of caffeinated
coffee–it takes about 20 minutes for caffeine to affect your brain. Then
immediately take a nap or rest calmly if you can’t fall asleep. The combination
of brief rest and the caffeine in coffee makes you more alert when you get up.
(Bottom Line, October 2015)
Coffee Reduces Stroke Risk:
Recent finding - drinking one or
more cups of coffee daily was associated with a 22% to 25% reduction in stroke
risk. Theory: coffee beans contain antioxidants and other disease-fighting
chemicals that reduce inflammation and improve insulin activity. Moderate
coffee consumption has also been linked to decreased risk for diabetes, colon
cancer, heart disease, liver disease, and Parkinson’s disease. (Institute of
Environmental Medicine, Stockholm Sweden)
Coffee’s Many Uses:
Neutralizes odor - Ground
coffee absorbs moisture and replaces an offending order with the smell of
coffee. Hang a cheesecloth pouch filled with cooled used coffee grounds in a
cabinet where garbage is kept.
Stress buster - Inhaling
the scent of roasted coffee beans eases stress and produces a natural
Skin exfoliate - Mix one cup of ground coffee, ½ cup of
sugar, and one ½ tablespoon of jojoba oil.
Apply the mixture to your body, and gently rub in a circular motion; rinse
and pat dry. (Bottom Line)
Caffeine May Make You More Easily Persuaded:
A recent study showed that students were more
likely to change their opinions about controversial topics when they were
drinking coffee than when they were drinking orange juice. Possible reason: drinking
caffeine increases people’s emotional arousal or improves their mood, making
them more likely to agree with a different opinion. Watch out coffee drinkers!

“I’ve been using EFT in my practice as a psychologist at Kaiser, as well
as “on the outside” in a small part-time practice. I am combining both hypnosis
with energy psychology techniques you taught in the training, and find that the
changes in my patients are rapid and permanent. Thank you for offering such a
comprehensive training along with your thorough and well-informative training
manual.” ~F. Lombardo, PhD
“In my estimation, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
is one of the most powerful treatment tools available. I have successfully
helped people overcome fears, phobias, depression, and addictions. It is rapid,
dramatic, and deep.” ~Fred Gallo, PhD, author of "Energy Psychology"

Letter from the Executive Director
you go…there you are. Become one with your journey of magnificence.”
So many people come to me
in search of finding themselves without knowing what (or who) they are actually
One of the greatest
personal challenges people face is the struggle to accept, embrace, and love oneself
even with all of their imperfections. We need to stop discrediting ourselves
for everything we aren’t, and start acknowledging ourselves for everything we
Our mission is not just about
discovering self-love, but about breaking down the walls we have built against
it. When we have the courage to push through these walls–to know and
embrace ourselves despite our humanness and flaws–we open the door to
connecting in more caring, empathic, and intimate ways with others who are
truly worth loving.
Here are a couple of tools
that will enhance your journey into your magnificence:
· - Focus on writing your story instead of reading, watching, and hearing about
everyone else’s. If you catch yourself comparing your life to someone else, remember that
people often only showcase their highlight reel (especially online), not their
· - Pay close attention to your life as you live
it. One of the
greatest gifts you can give yourself and your loved ones is to be in the present
moment and appreciate yourself and your life with love and gratitude.

Open House Social Networking Evening
Free Demonstrations, Food,
Networking, and Fun!
Wednesday, February 24th from 6:30PM – 9:00PM
Topic: How to Heal the Body
The best acupuncturist,
chiropractor, or medical doctor can help heal any physical injury. But at some
point the body seems to no longer respond. Why? At some level the whole person
can have an emotional block that is causing a person to stay in pain and/or
unbalanced. Dr. Bret Mosher will teach
you how to help your body to remain balanced and maintain wellness. He will
also be addressing the aspect of forgiveness—forgiveness of oneself
and forgiveness of others—which helps to accelerate healing
and one’s well-being.
A leader in his field, Dr. Mosher has been an expert in natural medicine for 40 years. He has been a Doctor of Oriental Medicine since 1987 and a licensed acupuncturist.
This will be an interesting and informative evening complete with demonstrations, wine, appetizers, networking, raffle prizes, and good company. Learn more about Dr. Mosher and his work at our website or to RSVP.
