Transformational Pyramid Healing

Tammy Eckert, intuitive healer and owner of Revive in Newburgh, believes the energy within a pyramid is nothing
short of amazing. That is why all of her sessions take place inside a large copper pyramid in her practice. “There are many
ways healing and change take place within the pyramid. One can be as specific as decreasing back pain, and usually removing it altogether, or floating in and out of a
meditation or dream state. Upon ‘waking,’ you’ll feel renewed, restored, rejuvenated and ready for the change or the ‘something different’ that took place while in this
pyramid.” Continue Reading

The Benefits of Mutual Respect by Ed D’Urso

There is a widely shared misconception that a good relationship has no conflict and no suffering, and that the
point of relationships is to eliminate them both. Unfortunately, what happens with that line of thinking is that because no one can eradicate either conflict or suffering, people end up eliminating the love and eventually each other from their lives. Continue Reading

Relationships: The Challenge of a Lifetime by Mignyetta C. Woodlen-Ramnani, LCSWR

Many of us know how challenging relationships can be. We always are in some sort of a relationship. We may not even realize it but we also are in a relationship with ourselves. We ask ourselves what is our purpose, why are we here, where are we going, who are we and why do we think and act the way that we do? We also ask those same questions of the people that we are involved with as we try to understand what exactly makes a person tick. When we look at our culture and society as a whole, we often wonder what went wrong that so many of us are not getting along with each other. We look at divorce rates and wonder is marriage still a worthwhile endeavor. When we have children we are often at a loss on how to communicate with them effectively or how to communicate at all for that matter as they get older. Continue Reading

Closer Connected Trusting Relationships by Ronnie Figueroa

I believe that most people are truly looking for closer connected trusting relationships, meaning that we are seeking the mutual ongoing acceptance and commitment toward oneself, a person, a couple or group whether together or apart.
To maintain this type of relationship, the most important variable is the need for all those involved to first and foremost learn to live a life of practicing awareness, presence and having positive caring intentions. It sounds relatively easy
on paper, but living this kind of life can be very difficult for many of us. And the main reason for relationship issues is that we have been so conditioned by society that it often can bring ongoing frustration and mistrust. Continue Reading

It’s Time to Give Yourself Permission by Jessica Hans-Smolin

All too often, we get caught up in the demands of our day-today lives that we ignore or neglect our deepest needs. Our ‘produce, produce, produce’ minded society teaches us
