Healing and Reconnect at Tribodar

Today this inspired me so I pass it on to all of you.

Here’s your chance to heal and reconnect.

Do you want to learn how to cook your food with solar power? Try gardening? Building something ecological? Juggle, make recycled art or play the didgeridoo?

Tribodar is an ecological community where you can try all these things, and learn in a short-term, hands-on, flexible and creative way. It is open to volunteers to stay in the community, share and learn.

discover the delight of dana

Dana is the quality of giving from the heart, and brings joy through the act of giving.

Buddhist monk Ajahn Suwat was teaching a ten day meditation retreat, which he had taught many times in Thailand but was teaching for the first time to Westerners.

Ajahn Suwat: Why do they seem so unhappy? They’re meditating. They’re here. But they seem so grim and not at all like they’re enjoying themselves.”

Ajahn Geoff: “They know how to meditate, but not how to practice dana.”*

Dana is a fundamental part of Thai culture, but absent in the West. Children are taught dana from an early age when their parents encourage them to place a spoonful of rice in a monk’s bowl as the monks pass by for their daily alms, and reward them with approval afterwards. It is a lesson they will continue to use for the rest of their lives as they openly share and recieve the shared food of others. Through the simple act of sharing they are able both to help others feel good and to feel good themselves.

Dana will make you happier. Try it.

Action: Consider what you have to give. Start with something simple. Give a pen to your colleague. Give a shirt you haven’t worn in a while to a friend who would look good in it. Give an extra cooking pot to your neighbour. Give something you don’t need to someone who deserves it.

Do you have nothing? You still have something to give. Give a flower to your colleague. Give a hug to your sister. Give a compliment to your baker.

Quote of the day:
Share what you love, and you will have more of it.

Did you give something recently? I’d like to hear your stories.

The Cure to Most Modern Diseases–Hiding in a Very Obvious Place?

The authors of Earthing find the solution right under our feet.

-Do you want to hear what the newest scientific research says is the best type of shoe for the human body?
-Why have “many allergies and immune-system diseases have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled in the past few decades?” -Rob Stein*
-Why have disorders related to a dysfunctional immune system (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes are a few) risen to a “disturbing” level?

Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra and Martin Zucker in their book Earthing have discovered a way to alleviate the bulk of modern disorders, and it’s absurdly simple. Exposure to the ground, through walking, lying or sitting with the feet bare and in contact allow free electrons to enter the body and bring it back into alignment with the electronic frequency of the earth. The process is known as Earthing, or grounding.

Earthing is:
Normally to the process of “connecting equipment and appliances to the earth to protect against shocks, shorts and interference.”** Applied to people, earthing natually protects the bodys delicate bioelectrical circuitry against static electrical charges and interference. most importantly, it facilitates the reception of free electrons and the stabilizing electrical signals and energy of the earth. Earthing remedies and electrical instability and electron deficiency you never knew you had. it refills and rechardes your body wit hsomethign you never knew you were missing…or needed.”
“The reconnection can involve the use of conductive bed sheets or floor pads linked by wire to a ground rod outside your house or office, or plugged into a wall outlet with a modern earth ground system.”
How does it work?
-The earth can be compared to a giant battery as it is continually charged by solar radiation, lightning and heat from underground magma. The rhythmic pulses of energy across the electromagnetic field on the Earth’s surface work to keep all life functioning and in balance. All life–this includes trees, fish, humans, animals and even viruses.
-The earths electrical energy “maintains the order of our own bodily frequencies just as a conductor controls the coherence and cadence of an orchestra”
-Our cells constantly transmit and recieve energy “think of them as microcsopic electronic machines”
-The “movement of nutrients and water into the cells is regulated by electric fields and each cell has a frequency range in which it operates”
What does Earthing do?

-Reduces or eliminates chronic pain
-Improves sleep
-Increases energy
-Lowers stress and promotes calmness by cooling down the nervous system
-Thins blood and improves blood pressure and flow
-Dramatically speeds up healing and helps prevent bedsores
-Reduces or elimates jet lag
-Protects the body against potentially health-disturbing environmental electromagnetic fields (EMFs)
-Accelerates recovery from intense athletic activity

And do you want to know what podiatrist Dr. William Rossi, after historical and scientific research, says is the ideal shoe? The moccasin, because it molds perfectly to the shape of the foot and conducts electrons when moist. And it’s over 14,000 years old.

Do you agree? Test this out for yourself by walking a minimum of 20 minutes barefoot or sleeping outside for a night. Do you feel a tingling sensation or an improved sense of well-being? Have you experienced any changes in your health over time?
Write in your comments. Im looking forward to hearing them!
