  • New Inspirations by Submitted by Tracey Clark-Worrall AdvCBP, ParBP, CBI, BAT, BA

    From October 27-30 I was thrilled to have the opportunity to host the first BodyTalk Fascial Balancing Level 1 class in Canada.

    Thank you to Kerry D'Ambrogio for inspiring us all with an amazing new way to bring BodyTalk to a whole new dimension. The Fascial Balancing class brings anatomy to life and teaches us how all-encompassing and integral or fascial system is. When our fascia is holding tension, whether it be structural, emotional, or at the level of consciousness, function is altered. The techniques taught in this class give us the advantage over a strictly manual approach to fascial release as we have the ability to incorporate the tools of BodyTalk to identify the priority of release, as well as, the true nature of the barrier. Not only did we learn how to "take down the wall" but we learned how to determine why it was built in the first place.

    The class was filled with a very excited group of students, most of whom were laypeople. It was incredible to see structural shifts and release of tension as we incorporated our new "off the body" balances of the fascial system combined with BodyTalk "mojo". We learned to identify, evaluate and release fascial tension from the superficial level all the way down to the muscles, bones, joints, and vital structures using incredibly simple, energetic techniques. Amazing!

    Kerry's presentation of anatomy was so user-friendly and inspired us all to learn as much as we can about the body. I'm sure there will be a spike in the sales of Anatomy coloring books this week! This is a tool that we can all instantly incorporate in our practices. Can't wait!

    BodyTalk and Cortices Introduced to Overseas Workers

    Filipino BodyTalker Alan Along appeared recently on a talk show on The Filipino Channel (over two million subscribers) which targets Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) and their families in the Philippines. There are more than three million OFW's separated from their loved ones, husbands, wives and children, often for years at a time. Alan is well known for his work, supervising BodyTalk Access clinics for the Philippines' Alliance for Bases Clean-Up International and offering BodyTalk sessions in communities affected by toxic wastes left behind by former American military bases in the Philippines.

  • Transcending Us by Submitted by Laura Mitchell, CBP, BAT, Parama BP

    An important facet in having shifts in our level of Consciousness and in being able to be in touch with our ego is our own willingness to do so. In a class like BreakThrough or Mindscape, we offer the mind a challenge in the form of a new paradigm, a puzzle or paradox. This is why people often leave Breakthrough and Mindscape realizing that they have seen into an up-until-now unnoticed corner of the subconscious mind. The feeling is often one of "Hooray!" while at the same time a feeling of "Wow. I cannot believe I thought that for all these years." or "Now I have a whole new chance at life." Some people feel out of breath and blown away as they realize there is so much more out there/in themselves that their eyes had not seen."

    The BodyTalk System transcends typical healthcare in that it offers the body the ability to put the puzzle together in the correct order, rather than in an order based on pattern recognition, which is often the method of diagnosis used in western medicine. As practitioners when we've transcended or at least faced and observed our own fears and old belief systems we offer perfection in the priorities we balance and thus, better work for the person on our table.

  • The Container Principle ala Namaste by Part Two of a Two Part Series Submitted by Kerry Forbes

    Time and again we see it. Folks come from all over, consumed with the hardships in their lives, unresolved feelings, fractured relationships and frayed emotions. They land at Namaste anxious, fearful and hesitant--unsure what lies ahead, with much trepidation about exposing their raw truths and ultimately about how they will be received by others.

    That first day is always a mixture of uncertainty and anticipation -- everyone's heart beating to the sound of their own drum...

  • My BreakThrough Journey by Submitted by Ben Manalo, LMT,CBI, BAT, BrTI, CBP, Parama BP, AdvCBP

    "Isn't that cool!" she said, looking at me with a big smile, sparkling eyes and excitement in her voice.

    "I have no idea what just happened," I thought to myself as I sat across from her in the hotel room. I felt like I'd been dropped in the middle of nowhere.

    I was attending my very first IBA Instructors conference in Sarasota, Florida and Brenda Miller had just led me through my first BreakThrough Steps. I'd learned BodyTalk a few years earlier from John (Veltheim), and when I took (Mod 3) BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness with him, he talked about this other system called BreakThrough which his then wife, Esther, had developed. From what I understood at the time, it evolved out of her own need to understand herself. And what I understand now for myself after attending several BreakThrough classes with Esther and other instructors as well as training and finally graduating as a BreakThrough Instructor this past summer, is that it's a system that cuts to the core of your dis-ease in a way like no other.

  • Expanding to Ecuador by Submitted by Joanne Matheson, Adv CBP, CBI, BAT

    First Ever BodyTalk Access in Ecuador

    Don't you just love the way life unfolds? When we see the opportunities and are prepared to just go for it, great things can happen. That's how the first ever BodyTalk Access course to be taught in Ecuador showed up, and I went for it.

    Adventures in China
    Rewind to 10 years ago when I was presented with an out- of-the-blue opportunity. a chance to spend 2 months in China, learning acupuncture and moxibustion. It really was one of those 'just go for it' scenarios. At the time, I was working full-time as a Practice Nurse and also studying part-time for my Diploma in Aromatherapy. A fax with the headline "Study Acupuncture in China for Free" churned out just as I was passing the fax machine in my medical center. It lacked details, but gave a local contact number. Nine days later, I was on my way.

  • BodyTalk is All by Submitted by Tim Hall, LMT, CPT, RYT,CBP, Parama BP


    We hear that BodyTalk is "Consciousness-based Energy Medicine for Optimal Health." If "Consciousness is all," then why the distinction when we also say that "Everything is energy?" As an approach to health care, where is our priority in finding health?

    If we have categorized BodyTalk as a dynamic energy healing system, was it not to distinguish the work as being more subtle than physical manipulation and safer than pharmaceutical medication? Working at the subtle energy level is less invasive and has a broader range of influence all the way down to the physical. Yet we've gone a step further to include Consciousness, which is more subtle than the subtlest energy and all-inclusive, whether subtle, dense or otherwise.

  • John Veltheim Does Brazil Brilliantly by Submitted by Juliana Lara Resende

    "John Veltheim is coming to Brazil". That phrase by itself stirred much excitement in the entire Brazilian BodyTalk matrix. The matrix grows stronger each time we get to experience the energy and teachings of Dr. Veltheim. Over the last year we welcomed our first Portuguese-speaking instructor; in our capital alone, we had more then 200 students trained in BT Access and at least three well- recognized public hospitals across the country offered BodyTalk Access classes and BodyTalk sessions.

    In September, Brazil was the place for BodyTalk. The Brazilians hosted JV for his last live Finding Health class. We also witnessed the Second Quantum Health and Quality of Life Symposium, which took place in the northeastern city of Recife, often referred to as a new port of entrance for world industry and knowledge. In the Seminar, Dr. John was a keynote speaker amongst 20 other top thinkers and scientists from all over the world. Presenters included Elizabeth Rausccher, Richard Amoroso, Amit Goswami and Uma Krishnamurty. Dr. Thornton Streeter, the founder of Streeter Biofield Sciences and a champion for non-invasive healing techniques, methods, and products, said about Dr. Veltheim, "?John Veltheim held the whole show together and personally looked after most of the other speakers with deep healing. That man is incredible."

    Besides hearing of beautiful work being done, inspiring speeches, lessons for life and clinical practice, we had the opportunity to see The BodyTalk System being introduced to a 1500 person audience. It was incredible to witness 1500 people learn to tap out their cortices in unison. The feeling during those moments that we are all connected was so real. After Dr. Amit Goswami's referral to BodyTalk as "a system able to promote healing at true quantum levels," the lining up for free BT treatments took half the space of the large hall outside the auditorium.

  • The Doctor is NOT in. by Contributed by Katrin Julia Schubert, MD, CBI, PaRama, CBP

    Reaching across the distance- BodyTalk in the intensive care unit

    I love BodyTalk distance sessions! Just this morning I called the intensive care unit at the nearby university hospital in order to report a session to the mother of the girl I had offered a distance session to the night before. The daughter was suffering from acute bacterial meningitis with the usual severe headache, nausea and vomiting and a high fever.

    The BodyTalk session brought up only two links, one relating to the flow of cerebro spinal fluid in the ventricles of the brain and a 'reverse' hydration relieving the cells of edema which then linked as a package to the pancreas and sugar metabolism. The second link was a very simple one: cortices to kidneys balanced/tapped for 10 minutes. Ah, the power of the simple link!

  • Get in the Zone by Submitted by Tim Hall

    When you get into the Zone, doesn't it feel expansive? Normally when I get into something, I find myself in a smaller place, like a car or elevator. But the Zone feels like the universe is within it and within me.

    Do I get into the Zone, or is the Zone in me? What if we said that the Zone is deep within and when we "go into it," it is more like we are bringing the Zone out from within?

    Does BodyTalk work when you're not in the Zone? Well, it certainly works better when you are in it -- and the deeper the better. The quality of the Zone seems to correspond with the quality of the session. So when Innate Intelligence works its magic, it works in the Zone, and it appears to engage more as the Zone deepens. John sometimes talks about "levels of practice" and how deeper Zoning allows for more effective sessions. It would seem then that Innate Intelligence functions in and through the quality of the Zone.

  • The Container Principle ala Namaste by Part One in a Two Part Series Submitted by Kerry Forbes

    There are numerous contexts and explanations of the 'Container Principle,' but our favourite interpretation most resembles that of the Shambala Buddhists:

    "The container principle is the idea that the environment you establish or find yourself in informs your experience and can influence or even give rise to an outcome."

    Namaste Nova is an environment that shapes and informs personal experiences and gives rise to miraculous outcomes.

    How is the 'Container Principle' relevant to Namaste Nova? When a course of an intimate nature is held in conference-type facilities and hotels, participants leave the venue AND the energy that the group has manifested during the day. That energy disperses as people go their separate ways, and participants have to not only come together physically, but they also have to re-establish the energetic connection they all experienced the previous day.

    A Namaste experience is a 360 degree immersion. Well-appointed dorm-style accommodations and a dining room that can host a crowd are just a couple of elements that combine to create Namaste's sacred container.

  • Shiny, Happy People by

    A review of more than 160 studies of human and animal subjects has found "clear and compelling evidence" that -- all else being equal -- happy people tend to live longer and experience better health than their unhappy peers.
    The study, in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, is the most comprehensive review so far of the evidence linking happiness to health outcomes. Its lead author, University of Illinois professor emeritus of psychology Ed Diener, who also is a senior scientist for the Gallup Organization, of Princeton, N.J., analyzed long-term studies of human subjects, experimental human and animal trials, and studies that evaluate the health status of people stressed by natural events.

  • The New Section Entitled Business Tips by

    While helping our clients move towards living healthy lives we often bring them through areas of their lives that need better attention and balance. Our goal in this new sections is to help wellness practitioners' businesses thrive.

  • Do You Live BodyTalk? by Submitted by Tim Hall

    Last night I dreamt I was on the Dr. Oz show, live, giving Oprah a BodyTalk session while Dr. Phil did the before and after orthopedic evaluation. I woke up screaming!

    I know I'm not alone. This issue can afflict anyone at any time. Why do so many of us have such strong performance anxiety? And is it a problem to run away from, or a sign that Innate Wisdom is working out deep stresses leading us to a greater state of health and wellbeing?

    If you were a runner and your cardiovascular was not functioning optimally, wouldn't you exercise it to clear out the, blocks and stresses before running your marathon? Can't we also accept responsibility for our present state of consciousness and work thru any blocks that arise as BodyTalk practitioners? If doubt, fear and misperception are the antithesis of the Zone and Innate, shouldn't our personal priority be to heal those blocked aspects within our own consciousness?

  • Kids Labeled With ADHD Benefit from Outdoor Play by

    A study that appeared in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being lends more evidence about the benefits of the theories outlined in the book, Earthing, this issue's suggested reading.

    For Kids With ADHD, Regular 'Green Time' Is Linked to Milder Symptoms

    ScienceDaily (Sep. 15, 2011) -- A study of more than 400 children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder has found a link between the children's routine play settings and the severity of their symptoms, researchers report. Those who regularly play in outdoor settings with lots of green (grass and trees, for example) have milder ADHD symptoms than those who play indoors or in built outdoor environments, the researchers found. The association holds even when the researchers controlled for income and other variables.

    The study appears in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being.

  • Treatment Intensive WOW! by Lesley McIntyre MA (hons), DipAK, AdvCBP, BAT, CBI

    Treatment Intensive with John Veltheim himself is a must do class!! Not content with attending just the May class in Limerick, Ireland I also popped along to the July class in Surrey, England all within just seven weeks. For those of you who are not familiar with this seminar it is simply watching the master himself in action as he conducts sessions on around 30 people over 2 days. The class is open to BodyTalkers of all levels and John explains what he is doing in a way that everyone can understand. He approaches all manner of disease in the same way regardless of the perceived severity with comments like "oh it's a benign tumour and it'll be gone by morning". As John is no longer in practice he uses this as a means to develop the system and it is very exciting to be part of those Eureka moments!! I am constantly amazed at how the BodyTalk System continues to develop and evolve and John shares some of the new techniques from the PaRama College as they come up in sessions and some of his new insights from Finding Health 2. Obviously the more we understand these techniques as practitioners the more we can help our clients.

    One thing that did surprise me was the number of sessions where I felt an entanglement. So I would tap myself out as John tapped out the client and then check if I needed anything else along those lines. There were many shifts for everyone some who were crook, some very crook and luckily only a couple classed as b*gg*r*d on the Australian scale of health!!!

  • Is There Something Wrong With the Scientific Method? by Jonah Lehrer - The New Yorker

    On September 18, 2007, a few dozen neuroscientists, psychiatrists, and drug-company executives gathered in a hotel conference room in Brussels to hear some startling news. It had to do with a class of drugs known as atypical or second-generation antipsychotics, which came on the market in the early nineties. The drugs, sold under brand names such as Abilify, Seroquel, and Zyprexa, had been tested on schizophrenics in several large clinical trials, all of which had demonstrated a dramatic decrease in the subjects' psychiatric symptoms. As a result, second-generation antipsychotics had become one of the fastest-growing and most profitable pharmaceutical classes. By 2001, Eli Lilly's Zyprexa was generating more revenue than Prozac. It remains the company's top-selling drug.

    But the data presented at the Brussels meeting made it clear that something strange was happening: the therapeutic power of the drugs appeared to be steadily waning. A recent study showed an effect that was less than half of that documented in the first trials, in the early nineteen-nineties. Many researchers began to argue that the expensive pharmaceuticals weren't any better than first-generation antipsychotics, which have been in use since the fifties. "In fact, sometimes they now look even worse," John Davis, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago, told me.
