ST. PETERSBURG, FL — A fusion of services that include self-healing and growth are offered in a peaceful space called The Collective St. Pete that opens on Monday.

This new venue isn’t just a yoga studio, it offers a variety of services provided by eight professional women who each bring their self-improvement specialties to the community.

“It’s a co-op wellness space,” one of its certified yoga instructors, Amanda Riker, told Patch. “This is a space that is supposed to feel safe, and it’s a place where a person can try a new modality and grow.”

Dani Mae, one of its co-founders, said one of the goals of their business model is to allow teachers, creators and service providers to use their studio space and therapy room on their own terms.

Breathwork and Ayurveda are a couple of styles offered in the variety classes at the studio. Ayurveda is a

Before the day’s duties are assigned, Elder in Residence Renee Beaulieu-Banks, a member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, starts out with a quick blessing – first in Ojibwemowin, and then again in English.

“We have conversations with spirits. We invite them to listen. We thank them, offer them tobacco for our requests and for our gratitude,” Beaulieu-Banks says. “That’s what I do in the morning. I do a request for healing. Not only for ourselves, but for the community and each other.”

Beaulieu-Banks also addresses the spirit of COVID-19, requesting that it have mercy on not only the native people, but everyone. She thanks the spirits for bringing the medical team together for this work, calling them “our warriors.” Staff members at the clinic, which provides health

Date: Friday, November 6 – Saturday, November 7

Hosted online using the professional virtual conference platform Accelevents

In 2019, OCAMPR was invited to collaborate with the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops to establish a Mental Health Task Force charged to identify and respond to the mental health needs of the Orthodox faithful. With that in mind, the OCAMPR Board decided to focus our 2020 conference on the topic of mental health from a theological, psychological, and medical perspective. This year, we have watched our world face the effects of COVID-19 with all its social, economic and mental health implications. All of us have been affected personally and professionally from the events of this past year, making it all the more important that we gather in prayer, fellowship, learning, and support.

While we would all prefer to gather in person, a virtual conference opens up opportunities for us to gather in

Cancer, Diet and Global Warming With the Producer of Healing Cancer From the Inside Out

In this article, Mike Anderson shares on cancer, diet and global warming. Mike Anderson, is a medical researcher, author of The Rave Diet and film maker/producer of “Eating” and “Healing Cancer from the Inside Out.”

Kevin: So, Mike. If all this stuff isn’t working, what is?

Mike: Food. I site some studies in the film… the Office of Technology Assessment funded the Gerson Therapy. It beat the pants off conventional treatments. This was in different stages of melanoma. It just beat the pants off of conventional treatments. They don’t like these studies. They don’t want to fund them. It’s very hard.

Macrobiotics went in front of the NIH, National Institute of Health and they tried to get funding because they presented six terminal cases, cancer cases, where the cancers were totally reversed. They were all biopsied and they were all confirmed and everything. Now, wouldn’t you think that people should … Read More

Why Going Organic Is Much More Than Just a Trend – It’s a Global Outcry for Natural Healing

In our modern age, with the ease in which information is passed between us we are becoming increasingly aware of our health and that of our environment. As our global consciousness develops we are striving to become as ‘Green’ as possible, constantly on the lookout for natural and organic solutions. So the misconception that seeking out Organic and Natural Skincare is simply a trend is incorrect; in fact it is much more than that.

There are many reasons why there has been significant demand placed upon the Organic Skincare industry. For one thing there are many more people these days with sensitive skin and they require and rely on a more natural approach to healing. In addition to that; our understanding of the long term effects that harsh additives and toxins have on our environment plays a vital role in the industry’s development – It has been a long time … Read More

Introduction to the Community Bereavement Model for Healing

Many of our communities are experiencing violent attacks on the innocent. You’ve heard of them. They happen at malls, movie theaters and even schools. The wicked cause terrible injuries and shoot people in cold blood. The horror of mass violence rips through our bodies and lives. How can the people in our community’s help each other cope with this insanity?

Since grieving is seldom a part of our education, most people don’t know what to do or where to go. Some use drugs or alcohol. Some withdraw and sink into depression; others find some relief through friends. Still others’ find support groups in churches or community organizations. Much of this help supports adults. But where do the children find support?

Adults are often at a loss when it comes to explaining death to children. The younger the child, the less help is given. There are many who believe the little … Read More

12 Healthy Healing Foods From the Bible

Why does our society seem to seek every way to overcome sickness and disease other than looking in the best Instruction Manual that’s been around for thousands of years? Why do we avoid the simplicity of the basics when it comes to our health? The “basics” I refer to are eating healthy foods, getting regular exercise and adequate sleep.

Of course, the best instruction manual I am referring to is the Bible and there must be hundreds of books out there educating us on the importance of adequate exercise and sleep. Yes, there are scads of books on what to eat, too, but if they tell you to eat something that seems to contradict what the Bible says is OK, you probably should do some serious research before incorporating it into a regular eating plan. 

There are actually some diet/eating plans being promoted that in the long run, may not be very healthy. What … Read More

New Age Buzz-Words in Health, Healing and Wellness – What Do They Mean to You?

Of all the popular “new age” search terms in the health and healing category, my personal favorite is holistic healing. This term, it seems, embodies all of the others, like spiritual healing, soul healing, healing meditation, chakra, energy healing, spiritual journey and metaphysics. Some of these terms are specific methodologies like Chakra and guided meditation, while others are just general expressions of adopting a way of thinking beyond the realm of materialism. The popularity of such search terms is a clear indication that hundreds of thousands of people are taking charge of their health and exploring possibilities beyond conventional medicine, which is primarily about eradicating disease through cutting, sewing, burning, radiation and toxic chemicals. Of course, there are many benefits and people cannot afford to turn their backs on treatment opportunities in the standard health care system, but there are many viable adjuncts and alternatives.

However, the emphasis here is … Read More

Selaginella As A Healing Power In Plant-Based Diet

A florist sundry, the selaginella appears to have the remotest chance of being a vegetable.

Despite the fact that there are more than 700 species, the Selaginella is relatively underutilized as its medicinal value is not yet fully realized.
