How therapists are using the rituals of eating to treat victims of trauma

How therapists are using the rituals of eating to treat victims of trauma

It’s not just that food can affect emotions, but that the entire act of eating can be analogous to the trauma healing process.

Exploring the theory that these figurines began as a form of self-representation by women. When examined, this proposal becomes so compelling the question is, Why did it take so long to consider the logical possibility that a female point of view was involved?

Dendrotherapy and the Energy of the Siberian Cedar

The healing properties of trees are used for the treatment and prevention of various ailments. Since ancient times, it has been thought that flowers, bushes, and trees absorb information they receive from the environment, information that is remembered and preserved. Plants possess positive and strong energy. Their energy is the force of life, continual growth and renewal.

Hey Hella,

I received notice of a comment on your Raw Milk posting, but looks like you consolidated your info with Amy's (thanx), so didn't see it.

Are you going to the Hastings-Sunrise village potluck Monday evening? Sending you an invite to join H-S.

Be well,


VV convenor

Welcome to the Local Economy Network!


We're always glad to see new faces in our group, and as co-convenor I thought I’d give you a summary of what we’ve been working on over the past few months and how you can get involved.


At our first meeting last October, it emerged that concept of community currencies was of great interest to the group, and we decided that we would begin the process of planning a local currency for the Dunbar neighbourhood as a pilot project . Community currencies are forms of money developed by and for a community for various reasons, including relocalising and stimulating the economy,  supporting community projects and non-profits, re-introducing a more social aspect to economic transactions, and more. Using the experiences gained from Dunbar, we hope to be able to eventually either expand the currency to other neighbourhoods, or replicate it to have multiple neighbourhood currencies throughout Vancouver.


Since that meeting, a number of members of this group have been working to determine how a community currency in Dunbar might work, including meetings with LETS and Community Way inventor Michael Linton (a member of LEN) and Janet Morris-Reade, Executive Director of the Dunbar BIA. Both are great, supportive allies in this venture.


Sounds interesting? Check out the discussion on the LEN page where I've posted some useful links. We’re building our project team now, so if you might like to get involved in any way imaginable, please contact me at


I should also add that, although community currency has been our primary focus over the past couple of months, it need not be the only project! There are many things that can be done to help create a saner and more localised economy, so all ideas are welcome.


I look forward to meeting you soon!

Low Cost Student Clinic for Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 1:46pm 0 Comments

I just wanted to let everyone know about this great opportunity to be treated by 2 biodynamic craniosacral therapists! Normally a session like this would cost around $100 or more. This is a really great opportunity to find out more about your own body, get an idea of what biodynamic craniosacral therapy is and have a great healing experience.

Our Most Basic Right -- To Choose What we Eat -- Denied in Canada

Posted on October 18, 2011 at 5:15pm 0 Comments

Some of you may have been following the case of Michael Schmidt, biodynamic farmer in Ontario who is currently on a hunger strike. I think it is day 19 now....


What is he protesting? Our very basic right to decide for ourselves what we put into our own bodies.


In both the US and Canada, judges have ruled that we can't drink milk right from our own cows. Canada and the US are marching in-step towards a future where our food is completely controlled by…
