October 2014 Updates

By | October 3, 2014

Fall is officially here, and the days are getting shorter. One of the wonderful gifts of the longer nights is regeneration. It’s during sleep when  the body’s repair mechanisms are hard at work. Historically, the longer nights meant more sleep, more regeneration. Be mindful of this when tempted to keep the lights on all hours burning the proverbial candle at both ends. Take advantage of this time of year and allow your own body time to repair by getting plenty of rest.

September was a busy but exciting month for BoomerPlus. We have six new graduates of the full therapy training program. Congratulations, new grads! Amy has done programs in Scottsdale,  Chicago, Boston and Florida. Please note: this is your last weekend to attend the “Music as Therapy” program with Cheryl Chaffee. This event takes place Sunday, October 5th in Ft Meyers, FL. Yoga Alliance CEU’s are available for this program. See the flyer for more info.

Cheryl Chaffee presents a wonderful program of healing. We received this email from her recently, which we’d like to pass on to you and ask you to help support her work:

Dear friends,

As many of you know, I have been working on a mantra CD for the past 6 months or so.
Kirtan is an Indian musical art form, that features chanting (or singing) mantras. I am excited that we are at the point where we are recording all of the musicians who are contributing to this project, and once that is done we’ll be ready to send it out for professional mixing and mastering.

Please help me reach my goal of sharing this music with everyone, by checking out my Indiegogo campaign today. Watch the video, and check out all the cool perks!

If you choose to contribute, please do so this week, and you’ll get an immediate release of the first track on the album- the Shanti Mantra Invocation. Here’s what it means in English, I think it captures the spirit of the fundraising campaign:

May we be safe and protected together
May we enjoy the fruits of our endeavor together
May we become strong together
May our learning be full of light
May we never have enmity for one another
Om Peace, Peace, Peace.

Also, please share my campaign on your Facebook page, other social media sites you may use, and email anyone who you think might want to chip in and help.
Thank you so much for your support!
