Move Your Body with Jill Pagano, CPT

According to Jill, endless foot tapping and arm swinging earned Jill Pagano the family nickname Shaky-Jake,– “the one who couldn’t stop moving.”  And that has proved true for the last four decades.  She is known personally for:

  • Moving in the 1980’s to Jane Fonda’s workout tapes in her childhood home’s basement.
  • Moving in college dance class despite the ballet instructor saying she had a lousy point to her foot.
  • Moving for 10 years as a professional “aerobic instructor” bounding with endless enthusiasm yet plenty of injuries.
  • Moving and studying cutting edge alternative forms like Pilates, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Yoga, Gyrokinesis, post-rehab exercise, before mainstream fitness recognized their benefit.

These moments of movement led Jill to the perfect career path of continually discovering how through movement we heal and discover ourselves. Jill Pagano has taught fitness and movement since 1985, Jill has earned multiple certifications, been featured in regional magazines and Seattle local television. Her passionate approach inspires those who say “no” to the drudgery of working out and “yes” to the pleasure of moving with mind-body-self connection.

If you currently feel like exercise is more work than wellness and hurts more than helps, join Jill for a unique approach. You’ll discover a new movement, the movement of listening to your body’s messages, and discovering what movements your body needs and wants—all to keep your BODY as youthful as YOU feel (or want to feel).

What the Bleep and other Surprises

This rumination on surprise comes courtesy of William Arntz, the creator and producer who surprised, confounded and delighted with his remarkable film What the Bleep Do We Know!? Now he teams with his wife, internationally renowned spiritual teacher and poet Deirdre Hade and award-winning photographer Endre Balogh to create something else quite special.

The (not so) Little Book of Surprises is anchored with Hade’s visionary and lyrical poetry skipping lightly about over the stunning images curated by Balogh. Each breathtaking page creates an emotional resonance with the reader…using surprise as the doorway to transformation and transcendence. The images in the book are part eye candy/part soul candy. They pile on a sensory experience that mounts the sense of surprise page by page.

All of the book’s creators began life in different fields-Arntz as a laser physicist working on “Star Wars” high energy lasers; Hade as a ballet dancer and choreographer, Balogh continues as an internationally regarded concert violinist. And through life’s mystery and surprise, they emerged as something else entirely, which makes them imminently qualified to bring forth a meditation in print on the gifts of surprise.   For more information please visit: www.BookOfSurprises.com

Our greatest hits of 2016 features Coach Jerry Lynch

Let Them Play by Jerry Lynch is a pertinent must-read for parents with children involved in athletics.

Jerry reminds us that it’s the child’s game – not the parents’. And though we cannot protect our children from loss, what we can show them, and possibly learn along with them, is that failure is one of our greatest teachers.

This episode with Jerry is full of wonderful advice and hard-won wisdom. His book is receiving fantastic reviews in an era where school, performance, and athletics is a high-stakes, high-pressure game.

Jerry Lynch, sports psychologist and consultant, is the author of, “Let Them Play which provides an antidote to parental over-involvement in sports.  Few parents want to undermine their children’s athletic enjoyment and performance but that’s what they do when they fight with referees, yell at coaches, and lash out at fellow parents.

Jerry diagnoses this epidemic of parental over-involvement behavior as an attachment of their own egos to their kids’ performance.  The result is often kids losing interest in sports.

Dr. Lynch offers an alternative: parents participate by empowering their athletic kids and expertly addressing the child who doesn’t “make the cut.” Learn how to talk with coaches, detach from results, and help kids both work to excel and learn from failure.

As parents and coaches adopt Lynch’s core principles, kids are freed to do their best and, most importantly, feel their best.

Your Brave New Mind with Dr. Elliott Maynard

Elliott Maynard believes his new master paradigm [Future Science Technology] is the quantum-field science for the future. He is convinced that integrating traditional, linear science with non-linear consciousness technology will yield new breakthrough solutions for the global problems we face as citizens of Planet Earth. Future Science Technology is a unique system which supports the development of a new and superior human mind – a master paradigm containing 25 keys to personal and planetary enlightenment.

A couple of topics we wish to discuss:

·         How we can embrace this new science that bridges conventional and alternative sciences to bring out the best of both worlds? Dr. Maynard highlights the creation of “win-win” scenarios in all aspects of life, but has evolved this concept into what he refers to as “Win-win to the X-power.”

·         How do we create an educational system that prepares our youth to operate effectively in the present and future realities?

Dr. Maynard presents his new educational system: “The University of the Future.”  He has invented an entirely new paradigm format, which – unlike linear paradigms of the past – is flexible and timeless. “Even the turtle will not get ahead unless he sticks his neck out.”
