DOING LESS

Allow yourself the freedom to feel more spacious

in your own body and mind without compromising every-day living.

Learning how to listen and be quiet, in a world that expects us to react faster and work harder, is the next evolution of health and well-being.

 

Explore the potential of your own healing and reduce stress and anxiety in your everyday life.

Grace in the embodiment of Tensegral Movement

To carry our bodies with such ease, with grace, with motion. Our movements stem from the strength and integrity of our core, of ever part of our body that comes together to stretch, to gather, to unwind and unravel. This video shares, visually, the way our body can move when we do so with awareness and connection. Every part of our body connected with layers of connective tissues that aid in even the simplest of movement. When these are all woven together... such beauty, even in walking or breathing, emerges.        watch on Vimeo >

Parasympathetic Repair - Steve Fowkes

The autonomic nervous system is not just a matter of a balance between the simple sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of earlier life forms. Mammals have developed a second (myelinated) parasympathetic circuit that connects us to our emotions and perceptions. Understanding this revolutionary parasympathetic development can help us be more effective at cultivating health and happiness.

 

Steve has taken a public position that Alzheimer’s disease, autism and sudden infant death syndrome are all the same fundamental condition, only manifesting differently at different stages of development. In this talk, Steve will discuss the newly documented association between autoimmune disease in mothers and the subsequent development of autism in their children, and how this relates to Alzheimer’s disease, and vaccinations. This is a highly controversial subject with high political investment in the USA. Come hear what the US government denies.        watch on YouTube >

The relaxed State and Science
– Compiled by Robert Nilsson

Queues and bottlenecks occur during rush hour in our cities. At other times of the day, the traffic is less active and therefore flows better.
