Reconnect to your body’s knowing  

Are you looking to improve your mind-body-spirit connection? Do you tend to ignore what your body is saying to you?  Do you want to understand how your emotions affect your body and how to change your body’s response to emotional triggers?  Are you curious about exploring your connection to your higher self, your ancestors, nature and the universe?

Amy Grace Lam says: “Reconnect to your body’s knowing”

Teresa Jade LeYung says:”Thank you, dear Amy Grace Lam, for teaching me how to listen, ask questions, listen some more … to my body and reconnect to intuition / my body’s knowing. You helped me solved three life-changing problems, and, I was able to go home to Paris again and again, with peace of mind and joy in my heart. I am forever grateful.”

Bystander Intervention Training to STOP anti-Asian/American and Xenophobic Harassment

May dates completed;

June 3, 10, 18, 25, 2020


Online Training is open to the public.

Sign up at: https://bit.ly/351kWO4 
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting
You don’t need a webcam. Just download ZOOM when you receive confirmation (before training time).

The HollaBack! guide:
The one-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect that Asian and Asian American folks are facing right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the “spectrum of disrespect.” You’ll learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see Anti-Asian/American harassment online or in person.
READ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS TRAINING:

“This training gave me new tools to support someone experiencing discrimination. I had always thought my only option was to directly engage with the aggressor, which was terrifying to me. To know I have a lot of other tools I can use will be very helpful.” EM, Oregon State University

 

“I appreciate having clear and effective strategies that can be utilized immediately.” HNN, Bates Center for Purposeful Work

“Before this training, I doubt I would’ve intervened for fear of making things worse, but now I’m confident that I’m equipped with the skills necessary to diffuse any situation I may encounter.” BBB


Please note you must register in advance for all trainings. They will be capped at 1,000 people per session.

Trevor Noah’s questions about Coronavirus COVID-19 Disease

Dr. Anthony Fauci gives answers that everyone on this planet needs to know, deserves to know.

 

2020 March 30, 03:22 California time

Bonjour, Everyone!

Please share this Youtube link with everyone you care about on this planet. Merci beaucoup!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A3jiM2FNR8

If only this interview would be translated into all languages.

Dr. Fauci Answers Trevor’s Questions About Coronavirus | The Daily Social Distancing Show

Infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci shares what makes COVID-19 so insidious, busts myths about the virus and breaks down why adhering to public health guidelines is paramount.

At around four-and-a-half minutes into the interview, Trevor Noah asks Dr. Fauci about mortality rate and how people have misconstrued the numbers….

Dr. Fauci answers: “… Two things that are important.  Even though you are young, you are not absolutely invulnerable for sure because we are seeing cases… most of them have some underlying disease, but, several don’t.

… young people, in their thirties, forties, who are getting sick, getting into the hospital, requiring intensive care. Still, the overwhelming proportion are the elderly with underlying disease, but every once in a while, you’re going to get a young person, so, if you think you’re completely invulnerable, you are incorrect.

Second issue that is important – that even though you may not get seriously ill, you can get infected, with relatively few symptoms, either asymptomatic or mild, relatively trivial symptoms, but then, you can infect another person who would then infect a vulnerable person who will then die.

A typical example – I’m young, I’m healthy, but you go home, you infect grandma, grandpa, a sick uncle, so, you have a responsibility not only to protect yourself but you also have a societal, a moral responsibility to protect other people…”

March 16, 2020 Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) and Assemblymembers Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) and Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland) issued the following joint statement on the six-county Bay Area Stay-at-Home order:

“During these unprecedented times, it is important that we take care of one another and make decisions that are in the best interest of public health.

“Today’s Order covering six Bay Area counties is a difficult, yet appropriate step to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our families, friends, and communities. It is the right thing to do. This temporary step to stay at home unless absolutely necessary must be followed to reduce the harmful impact of this pandemic. Our County Health leaders are experts in their fields, and they have our best interests in mind.
