Master Katsumi Niikura

I am pleased to announce that on Thursday November 6th 2014 one of my great teachers, Master Katsumi Niikura, will see patients at my Bronx office:

Respiro Healing Arts Center

837 Neill Ave.

Bronx NY 10462

9:00am - 6pm

Suggested donation $30

A few spots are still available. Please spread the word to those in need of a healing impulse.

For an appointment contact 917-254-8340

Also, Master Niikura will teach a Ki (qi) workshop in Astoria on November 8th.

This is a great and rare opportunity to be treated by a qi gong master who has pioneered a unique approach to Ki (qi) energy healing and developed a way to teach others how to channel this force. His first attempt to devote his life to using Ki for healing came when his own daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer. He applied Ki energy while she underwent conventional medical treatment and when she recovered, he continued to refine his technique to treat other illnesses. Master Niikura is one of the most accomplished energy healers on the planet and is sought by severely ill patients, including cancer patients. He has been the subject of study in scientific circles and has shown empirical evidence of the eficacy of his techniques. For an original interpretation of Sensei's method based on my own observation read this article http://www.quintessenceacupuncture.com/article_niikura.htm

"Ki is love. It would not be possible for the healing to occur is it weren't for the love in the KI."

Living a Balanced Life

- live radio show produced by changingmindsonline.com

Thursday 9/25/2014

The Autumn Equinox is one of the four pillars of astronomic balance of the year (along with the summer solstice, the winter solstice and the spring equinox). This is a time of the year when the energy flow is naturally balanced, therefore it is an excellent occasion to try to bring balance to your own life. You can do this by making the right choices for yourself and by cultivating thoughtfulness and moderation. To listen to the show go to:

Description: The purpose of the lecture is to help you get in touch with your Self and to view your life from your soul`s perspective, through reframing all beliefs and patterns of thinking around Love, romance and finding a soul mate. We will discuss fundamental questions of Man - what is the meaning of our existence, what is Love, how to love and how to know thyself. We will engage on a journey from One to Two, from Two to all, from all toward "something else", taking the path towards the divine and preparing the conditions necessary for going to higher levels of consciousness. The goal of the lecture is to prepare a good terrain for the application of Plato's eternal ideas, today. The aim is to stir within oneself that dormant part which is dwelling in all of us and within the whole of ourselves, that can get us closer to the possibility of awakening, of real understanding.

  Plato (428-347 BCE)

Instructions: In order to extract the most benefit from the lecture, the participants are highly encouraged to read, learn and try to make sense for themselves of Plato`s Symposium, available at:

http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/symposium.html

It is also highly suggested that the readers should keep a record of everything that they do not understand and what needs clarification. Any questions are welcome. Once you register, use the remaining time until the lecture to keep your heart and your attention open - as we will create a sacred space to induce the conditions favorable towards inner transformation, allowing the divine to manifest.

Payment: Although a five dollars consideration is suggested toward the lecturer and $15 for the hosting entity, nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. However, it is demanded to all participants to make an effort to "stay present" during the lecture in order to absorb the teaching.

Event`s timeline: The event starts at 5.30pm. The Teaching itself will be given from 6pm to 7pm. There will be a specific moment designed to take the audience into the "Eternal Now" - when we will break the time continuum. There will be drinks served from 7 to 8pm, and food from 8 to 9pm. The lecture will finish with the departure of the last attendee.

Privacy Notice: No ideas should be discussed after and outside of the sacred space.

Many believe love is something specific to a relationship based on giving/ receiving patterns. We examine love looking at some ancient texts in which love appears as the expression of the attitude one has towards the world and to oneself. This view reframes the concept of “love” from a passive/active interplay to a practical conscious practice of the art of self-knowledge.

Followed by reception including tasting of herbal elixirs.

This turning deeply towards what you love, saves you - Shams al Tabrizi
