Coming home (by Paul Woodward and Monica)

I retired the site late last year and didn’t know what the future of my work would be. I had become progressively ill with digestive and auto-immune issues in spite of eating and living really clean and well. I continued to deal with severe iatrogenic injury from the cocktail of psych drugs I came off of many years ago now. Drugs really do cause harm and I was about to discover that all over again.

Third eye cleanse and support…

I just made an awesome third eye opening essential oil blend – I’ve been detoxing my brain and most specifically it seems, the pineal gland area (which seems to correlate with the third eye),…I’ve got a nasty microorganism imbalance in there…it put me in ICU when I almost died a year and a half ago…it’s […]

Is anyone not insane?

Among the multitude of dualities we struggle with, the most persistent is perhaps the struggle to impose order on disorder — control on the uncontrollable…

This is it. This is your life. There is no do-over. This is it.

everyone is getting younger and younger and I don’t feel like I’m aging. Only the body ages…awareness is ageless and timeless.

Life force flows through my body bringing me to Healing so that I might come to perfect flow. Flow is thriving good health. The chronically ill body healing is a vehicle into the light. …

Speed kills…

A heck of a year for me…thoughts and Top 10 posts of 2018

December 25th was  the anniversary of the day I was in ICU almost dead last year. I was fearing winter most of the year but it’s turned out far better than I expected.  I am alive today…following the love of life-force within me that continues to heal this body which remains challenged (but only in the eyes of those who do not understand sacred illness) … I AM. And I am continuing to heal and celebrate life in ways I didn’t know were possible. …

Kick back. Watch the show.

Whatever is our process is our process, we can’t alter that. The only thing that can be changed is how we direct attention towards the process — letting that attention become a habit so that we pay attention to every moment now. How that comes to be is completely out of our control and will […]

Community

By Paul Woodward When I was a Buddhist monk and the Dalai Lama visited us in France, there was a meeting of most of the Western monks and nuns in our community. At that time, the majority were living in a monastery and neighboring nunnery near Toulouse, but others were visiting from elsewhere in Europe, […]

News and the forgotten value of waiting

by PAUL WOODWARD People everywhere, but especially in America, have been conditioned to feel that there is no experience in life more intolerable than having to wait.

To wait is to be tortured by a cavity that urgently demands filling.

Waiting destabilizes the nervous system and seemingly the only way most people can prevent an imminent seizure or some other kind of systemic breakdown these days is by clutching the ubiquitous grounding device upon which everyone now depends: their smart phone — a grounding device that helps each user feel connected by disconnecting them from where they are.

Musings on identity and self…

I often say about the voice I use in my work that I’m speaking as an empowered patient (rather than the professional I also am), but the fact is I’m speaking as a vulnerable human being — that which every seven billion of us are if we allow ourselves to be honest. We must rid our imaginations of artificial hierarchies. …
