Sound  
   

Greetings!  

In October and November, we have several new visiting and guest practitioners at Gallery Helios. Among these are Tama-Do Academy graduate and practitioner Shervin Boloorian, raw chef Sharon Galistan and gong meditation faciliator and Kundalini yoga instructor Choong Han Ni. The halls of Gallery Helios will be resounding with the beautiful tones of quite an assortment of acoustic instruments. From singing bowls and tuning forks to gongs. Sound healing is a deep and powerful way to realign and harmonize the body on many levels.

 

Come experience the different sound healing techniques and see how your body responds to each.

 

Also upcoming are a variety of workshops and practitioner certification training courses.  Further details are available on the Gallery Helios website - just click the links. Also look out for updates on our facebook page.

Editor's Note 

Sound is primal and reaches deep into the cells. From quantum science we now know everything is a vibration. EVERYTHING is energy. Research has shown that everything has a specific frequency, including different parts of our body, from spinal joints to organs. 

The impact of sound therapy is amazing. And the possibilities are now filtering into the mainstream for all of us to enjoy and benefit from.

In October and November we have sound healing with in-house practitioner Antoinette Biehlmeier and Claudia Hofmaier as well as new visiting practitioners Shervin Boloorian and Choong Han Ni. Syv Bruzeau is also continuing her Oneness Flow - each session is different, many of which works with sounds!

Come experience deeply healing and relaxing sounds.

And for a bit of a change, raw chef Sharon Galistan will be "cooking" up a storm. Through her Raw Food Made Easy workshop series, Sharon will show us how simple and delicious raw and living foods can be. Her workshops include both demos and tastings, from smoothies to raspberry chocolate cake. For me, finding yummy, nutritious and easy breakfast foods to start my busy day is the challenge and I'm definitely looking forward to her workshops. 

MeditationMeditation on a Wave
by Siewfan Wong

"The final mystery is oneself. When one has weighed the sun in the balance, and measured the steps of the moon, and mapped out the seven heavens star by star, there still remains oneself. Who can calculate the orbit of his own soul?" 
-Oscar Wilde, De Profundis 
  Meditating on a Wave
 
The wave contemplates the concept of Source and its perception of self. It looks and sees that it is made of the water. And within itself it sees the sunlight and the wind. It looks deeper and sees that earth and space is there too. The wave is related to the lake and the lake is related to the clouds and the rain, and the grass that grows and the animals that eat them. It is the raging river and the frozen arctic ice. The ice cube in the lemonade and the newborn kitten in the kitchen. And the whole earth, the  galaxy and all the galaxies in the universe, and all the other universes; unfolding, expanding, Source experiencing itself.
 
The wave knows that she is wave or not-wave, and snow and mist and thunderous waterfall; sequentially and concurrently. In the present moment a wave is writing on snowflakes that became a tree, drinking a glacier sitting on a cloud in the milky way. And in the here and now a wave is breathing and knowing, and channelling reality.

Nowhere to be except here. Nothing to do except smile.

 

FingerYogaRudra Mudra
Finger Yoga
Rudra Mudra

 

A mudra is an energetic seal and helps connects the energetic pathways in the body. Mudras are used in meditation, yoga, dance, etc, and can involve just the fingers or the entire body.

 

Mudras can help a variety of physical, emotional or mental imbalances. Or they can help support your spiritual journey.

 

According to the Five Elements Theory, the earth element is associated with centering and grounding. The Rudra Mudra strengthens the earth element and the organs the element rules over - stomach and spleen/pancreas. 

 

Are you feeling uncentered?

 

Insufficient earth energy can result in a lack of energy in the head, which can be felt as dizziness, listlessness or heaviness. 

 

The Rudra Mudra is also supportive for people with heart complaints, descent of interior organs and exhaustion.

 

Join Antoinette in her Finger Yoga series in October and November to learn more how simple finger yoga can help improve your sense of wellness and well-being.

ByronKatieWorking Byron Katie
By Siewfan Wong
 


At Toni's prodding, and it didn't take long, I decided to go into retreat. It's been long overdue, and I guess I've been a bit of a grouch. There were no conveniently timed meditation retreat in the vicinity, so I took the 2 weeks I was accorded to and shut myself in my urban cave instead. Since we've just done a weekend The Work of Byron Katie workshop, I thought I'd go through all the Byron Katie material I could find and hunker down to work. 

 

This is what I found.

  • There are no new stressful thoughts in the history of humanity. Across race, language and culture, they are the same.
  • These thoughts are not personal to us. They pop up when events in our lives occur. Then we believe them and suffer; or we could investigate them and invite the truth to manifest, and not suffer. Thoughts like
    • My parents don't love me
    • I don't want to look stupid
    • People are not trustworthy
    • The world is a dangerous place
    • There's got to be something better 
  • Suffering is the story of the ego. Ego tries to re-create what essence already is. Why? Because it thinks it is separate. It is the ego who is identified with and attached to the suffering. The ego suffers. That's what egos do to exist.

The Work of Byron Katie can be found on her website The Work. All the resources are free and can be utilized by anyone to help them have a better relationship with their thoughts, the source of our pain and suffering. 

 

For those who participated in Tim McLean's workshop and are interested in deeper exploration with both the Enneagram and The Work, Siewfan will be facilitating a practice circle. Details to follow.

 

SharonRaw Food Made Easy Series
with Sharon Galistan
 

Burger from Raw Chef  

Looking for ways to be healthy and have delicious food?


Looking to lose weight, have increased energy or improve your complexion?

Raw and living food is the way to go.

 

Raw and living foods are foods that have not been cooked or heated above 46 degrees centigrade or artificially preserved. It is essentially pure, fresh, vibrant, enzyme-rich, oxygen-rick, unadulterated, whole organic living food.

 

A well-managed raw and living diet can contribute to weight control, more energy, clear skin and improved insulin tolerance. Living foods are alkaline and reduce acidity in the body, preventing disease.

 

Join raw chef Sharon Galistan in her Raw Food Made Easy series in November. Each workshop includes demos and tastings so you can experience living vibrant foods.

CHNGong Immersion & Gong Meditation
with Choong Han Ni

"Your mind, your thoughts, your molecules, your existence psyche, and electromagnetic psyche have no power over this sound."

 

The Gong Meditation is a unique experience that creates deep relaxation. The sound waves bring the subconscious mind to a balanced and meditative state, facilitating the movement of prana throughout the body and psyche. 

 

The gong's vibrations stimulate the glandular system to a higher level of functioning, rejuvenate the parasympathetic nervous system (ruled by sound) and regulate sympathetic nervous system (ruled by sight). 

 

Join Han Ni in this sound odyssey as she creates an ocean of healing sounds with specially-designed gongs. No physical or mental efforts are required to move you into such a meditative state.

Shervin1 on 1 Sound Therapy
with Shervin Boloorian 
 

"Sound healing should be an artistic synthesis of beauty, harmony and inspiration. Sound healing is an expression of love. The soul must be nourished and given hope for the body to heal." - Fabien Maman

 

Tama-Do sound therapy is based on decades of sound healing research and practical application. From this work comes the framework of a subtle structure that shows linkages between sound and DNA, acupuncture meridians, organs, chakras and energy fields. Kirlian photography has shown the changes in the energetic fields of human cells when exposed to different sound frequencies. Research also shows that each cell has its own "fundamental note". 

 

For a variety of reasons, blockages occur in our energy fields and can lead to physical imbalance. Physicist Joel Sternheimer found that the molecules of a defective organic structure did not vibrate but will resume once their "fundamental notes" are heard. It was found that colour, sound and movement effectively dissolve the blockages, clearing the energy fields.

 

Sound therapy is known to provide a non-invasive and natural support for many physical conditions, ranging from arthritis and sports injuries to behavioural difficulties and speech problems.

 

From 3 - 6 October, Tama-Do practitioner Shervin Boloorian is available for sound therapy sessions. Shervin is trained in a variety of Tama-Do Vibrational Therapies and

Facilitator: Shervin Boloorian

Shervin BoloorianShervin Boloorian is a certified sound therapy practitioner and graduate of Fabien Maman's Tama-Do "Way of the Soul" Academy. Tama-Do is a program of non-invasive vibrational therapies using sound, color and movement to nourish the human energy system and aid the body in the recovery of its own balance in health. 

 

Trained in a series of techniques, including tuning fork on acupuncture point therapy, musical spine and acoustic sound harmonization, Shervin supports each individual's "inner calling". He does this "to release tension and provide the inspiration to positively engage with community, communicate with coworkers, and reintegrate with loved ones."

 

EOEssential Oils for Digestive Health
with Claudia Hofmaier 

 

Everyday Oils

Essential oils were one of mankind's first medicines and have been used for thousands of years for healing as evidenced from Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts. 

 

Essential oils are steam distilled from plants. This process of extraction preserves the life force of the original plants and captures it in the distillate.

 

An essential oil in a plant has a similar function as blood in our human body. It regenerates, oxygenates and provides immune defense properties.

 

In this workshop, Claudia introduced specific essential oils that can support your management of conditions such as bloating, indigestion and constipation - maintaining a healthy gut.

 

Essential Oils for Digestive Health

Date: Thursday 18 October 2012

FullBodyHealthy Oil Free Cooking
with Mayura Mohta
 
The Heart Smart Oil-Free CookbookMayura Mohta, nutrition consultant and health writer, is joining Gallery Helios as a guest practitioner. She will be offering individual sessions and workshops, both in-house and for corporate venues. 
 
She is the co-author of the new book The Heart Smart Oil-Free Cookbook. This is a topic close to her heart.
 
A proponent of plant-based diet, Mayura also believes in moderation. She knows that hardcore or sudden changes in habit do not work for most people. For them, she advises a 80-20 rule of thumb. 80% healthy and conscious eating. The key is choosing nutrient-dense (not calorie-dense) foods.
 
There are many different opinions on what a healthy diet is. To get some recommendations and tips, here are some questions we asked Mayura.

 

What is a vegan diet?
That is a diet that includes no animal products. The diet is based on plants - legumes, beans, greens, lentils, grains...no fish, no eggs, no dairy.

 

People say olive oil and avocado oil are good for us...are they not good when they are cooked or just not good for us at all?
For heart patients specifically and for people who tend to have obesity or excessive weight gain, no oil is the policy. You can have a bit of nuts and seeds - raw. Even if you don't soak them, as long as the nuts and seeds aren't toasted. 

 

So I see it as two-fold - knowing you have to make a healthy choice and getting what you want on the go or when you are working 10 hours...what would you advise?
There are a lot of options in Singapore. Things like wraps are good. But you can also have our local foods. We have lots of brown rice and vegetables in the food courts. The Singapore government is initiating healthy eating and most food courts are now required to serve brown rice. 

 

Smoothies are also a good choice - it's a meal in a glass. There are many smoothie recipes in the cookbook.

 

Speaking of smoothies, what do you like?
Broccoli, pineapple, lime, orange...You can add seeds and nuts, if you want. You can have a banana, almonds, ...You can put in agave or dates, apricots - anything naturally sweet. I normally pre-soak what I want to use. I use goji berries - any berries - they are good for antioxidants. I soak my seeds and the dried fruits for about 1/2 hour. Chia seeds and flaxseeds get soaked. So you can soak these and add them to your smoothie to increase the thickness.

Quote of the Month 

 

 

 

 

It opens all dimensions of one's being - from ancestral memories to cosmic purpose...Your are flying between heaven and earth.

 

Your heart, your emotion, your spirit is free!

 

You are one with the sound. 

You are one with the silence...

 

Listening...
