Chinese Health Secrets: Healing Ways to Protect Against Colds and Improve Digestion

Drew DiVittorio, Dipl (NCCAOM)

Join one of the Open Center’s most popular speaker on nutrition and herbalism for an webinar introduction to two vitally important topics of Oriental medicine.

The Metal Element: Building The Jade Wind Screen/Colds and Flu
According to Chinese Medicine, the lungs are the roots of our Qi (life force energy). When in harmony, the lungs control our exterior immune function protecting us from colds, flu and other environmental toxins. In this webinar we will discuss the disharmonies, including skin conditions, allergies, infection, and asthma, and herbs, food cures, and exercises to heal the lungs.

The Earth Element: Digestive Health
How we digest our food and assimilate key nutrients plays a large role in determining our energy levels and overall health. In Oriental medicine, the spleen plays a central role in digestive function. Discover effective approaches for such symptoms as poor absorption, candida, parasites, acid reflux, bowel difficulties and food sensitivities.

The Mindful Body- New Ways to Release Stress to Feel More Relaxed, Vital and Strong

Jean McClelland, MMus, M.AmSAT

Stress is an inevitable part of everyday life, but continual stress that stays stored in our body may result in backaches, headaches, stiff necks, indigestion, anxiety and fatigue. When we learn to work with stress constructively—and with awareness—our bodies and minds will thank us and our aches and pains will disappear. Long time New York Open Center faculty member and Alexander Technique teacher Jean McClelland will help you recognize the ways in which you contribute to your own physical stress and will give you new ways of working with your mind, body and breathing to release tension and feel more relaxed, vital and strong.

Experiencing the Next World Now: Explorations of the Afterlife

Michael Grosso, PhD

The question makes a difference to how we live—what happens to us after we die? In this webinar we will investigate reports of near-death experiences, reincarnation memories, vertical hauntings and apparitions, encounters with mediumship, and other types of incident that seem to imply an afterlife. We will also look at ecstatic mystical experiences that give us an even more direct sense of the reality of future life, sharing our own experience we may have had, assessing their value, and discussing ways of opening ourselves up to the greater reality here and now.
