Mind-Body-Chi – Dr. Wen B-Chen’s Marvelous Relaxation Exercises, Part 1 of 5 (Hsin-Chu, Formosa)

Chi gong is an ancient Chinese exercise that people practice to cultivate the chi – the vital life-force all around and within us. It utilizes meditation, controlled breathing, guided visualization and movements to stimulate the flow of chi throughout the body, thus assisting one in self-healing and preventing illnesses. Tai chi, a popular form of chi gong exercise, is now regarded as a health-promoting activity worldwide. This five-part series features our interview with Dr. Wen B-Chen, the creator of the marvelous Mind-Body-Chi (MBC) relaxation exercise program that incorporates the essence of chi gong, tai chi, yoga and meditation. He will present a unique interpretation of MBC’s various health benefits from a Western medical perspective and give demonstrations of the MBC exercises. Dr. Wen is a former radiation oncologist at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami, USA. He was also the radiation oncology medical director at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida, USA. “For people at the age of 30 to 55, that’s my target. Some of them really don’t have time to do exercise to maintain their health. I put together these movements and breathing to help those people. As long as they carve out a certain portion of time for themselves during the day, then their health gets maintained.” “MBC stands for Mind, Body, Chi, and Chi is c-h-i. In our (Chinese) culture, chi represents air, or spirit, or breath, or vitalities. We were taught in our culture that chi exists everywhere, in the universe and in our bodies. Inside the body, chi is supposed to follow the blood, or even go with the blood and nurture our internal organs and extremities, joints, and muscles.” To cater to senior citizens, Dr. Wen has recently expanded the MBC program from the original 6 exercises to 10, with the sequence rearranged. In our series, we’ll cover all 10 exercises. Let’s now see Dr. Wen's demonstration of exercise #1 and #2 of the MBC program.

Protecting the Vulnerable During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Part 2 of 2

Protecting the Vulnerable During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will continue to examine other vulnerable groups at an elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19. Homeless people and those whose living conditions fall below basic standards, like informal settlements, are more susceptible to infections, while refugees and internally displaced people are probably the most at-risk. Fortunately, there are international agencies that provide services to these groups to help better minimize their possible exposure to COVID-19. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has scaled up projects to keep refugees and internally displaced people safe by providing life-saving support including clean water, medical care and personal protective equipment like masks. “You can see here there is a handwashing device which is not the usual one. We developed this one considering the response to COVID-19 so that there is less contact of hands with handwashing devices in the communal places.” Countries are also reaching out to support various humanitarian aid organizations. The government of Switzerland has donated US$1.8 million to the United Nations World Food Programme for food supplies for the Sahrawi refugees living in five camps near the Algerian town of Tindouf. About 20 young volunteers in Bolivia are participating in the “Adopt a Grandparent” campaign to help isolated seniors obtain vital resources. A joint report released in 2020, by the United Nations Environment Programme and the International Livestock Research Institute states, “About 60 percent of human infections are estimated to have an animal origin.” Furthermore, it explains, “While wildlife are the most common source of emerging human disease, domesticated animals may be original sources, transmission pathways, or amplifiers of zoonotic disease.” Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has emphasized for many years that humans can stop zoonotic diseases by being vegan.

Protecting the Vulnerable During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Part 1 of 2

Worries and fears are in the hearts of everyone during this time of unease. This is especially the case for medically vulnerable populations who tend to carry these emotional burdens significantly more than healthy individuals. Older adults (those 70-plus years of age) and people who have underlying medical conditions such as a non-severe lung condition, heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, liver disease, as well as those with a weakened immune system or are very obese are assumed to be at moderate risk for becoming seriously ill if infected by the coronavirus. Older adults with health conditions who are not leaving their homes at all right now may feel lonely, especially if their daily routine included regular interactions with family, friends or care providers. I'd like to share some simple ways you can help ease their concerns and raise their spirits during this time. Check in with them frequently by phone or even better, by video. National governments have posted public health protection measures and assistance information on their websites to help their citizens cope with this crisis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, a US government agency, provides practical advice to those with an underlying medical condition to follow during the pandemic. Here is an abbreviated list of recommendations for such persons from the CDC website. * Continue your medicines and do not change your treatment plan without talking to your doctor. * Have at least a 30-day supply of prescription and non-prescription medicines. * Do not delay getting emergency care for your underlying condition because of COVID-19. * Call your healthcare provider if you have any concerns about your underlying medical conditions or if you get sick and think you may have COVID-19. As long as the number of infected people and death toll is increasing worldwide, we all have the responsibility to take necessary precautions such as social distancing, wearing masks and practicing personal hygiene. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai also reminds us of the importance of safeguarding ourselves from COVID-19. All of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s tips for protection during the COVID-19 (and any other) pandemic are free for viewing and download at MastersTipsOnCOVID-19.com

Full Vibrancy and Light: Lesa Carlson (vegan) on the Raw Vegan Lifestyle, Part 2 of 2

Full Vibrancy and Light: Lesa Carlson (vegan) on the Raw Vegan Lifestyle, Part 2 of 2

‟I saw Kirlian photography, and that showed the energetic properties around food. It's around all living beings which have energy. The premise that by adding heat, you either create nutrients or up the nutrients is a false idea. When you have something that is full of life force, light energy, it's auric field, its glow, you are consuming light, we are light beings, and the properties of mass and matter, there is no difference." By eating whole vegan foods in their natural state, Lesa says we can achieve a degree of spiritual upliftment. ‟So the quantum field, the biofield of energetics, is really, as opposed to the older idea of vitamins and minerals, and fat and how many calories and this kind of thing. When you move into that it's an energetic vibrancy property, and that it is vibrating at the speed of light. And your food is not separate from that whatsoever, and it is vibrating. So when you align that with your vibrating frequency, you are going into a whole new dimension. And again, you go from, the dense food to lighter food, to food that has more water content, that lightens up your mass and matter to then full vibrancy, that then you're expanded, and you're floating, and you feel fantastic and happy. Okay, so tips on making raw food dishes palatable and exciting for yourself. First of all, play, have fun. And so when you see or feel something that's bringing you joy, or sparks that little spark in your belly, what I did in the beginning that really helped me was I would find something that was cooked, that I was wanting for whatever reason, and then I would just redesign it into a raw food dish or find something that kind of gave me those same sensations. I would say bring color, bring texture, bring different flavors that you like. So, I always say, take the normal thing and then put some interesting things yourself, even in raw food."

John Jezewski (vegan): Wellness Is in Our Hands, Part 2 of 2

Today, it is our privilege to feature more excerpts from our interview with John Jezewski. Mr. Jezewski is more than just a nutritionist. He is a living nutritionist and provided us with a background on how he assists people through his practice. “Living nutrition is taking the absolute latest technology and also taking techniques of enthusiasm. So people can make a proper transition to a perfect diet for them. And we’re talking about making that part of your living, part of your life.” “And helping you with supplements, with tonic herbs, and how to do exercises, when to do exercises, how to treat all these different conditions, what you can do to help that particular condition.” As Mr. Jezewski just mentioned, he recommends appropriate dietary supplementation to his clients. His view is that if our focus is to improve our bone density, the intake of plant sources of silica is the intelligent choice. “Good calcium you get from plants. You get calcium from green food basically; you eat lots of that. For bones, you need the silica, not the calcium. You need nettles; you need hemp leaf tea. You need to eat hemp; you need to eat things like nettles, hemp.” “That, with vitamin D, the sunshine, is fantastic. And then, magnesium. That, again, you get from your plants.” “a tonic herb has got no side effects, by definition. It wouldn’t be a tonic herb. So you can take that, and it works internally, and it raises consciousness. It doesn’t suppress any symptoms; it brings them out; it gets rid of them.” Introducing plant-based eating to his clients is part of Mr. Jezewski’s living nutrition practice. He is encouraged by the trends he sees worldwide in terms of the awareness that veganism is the key to wellness.

John Jezewski (vegan): Wellness Is in Our Hands, Part 1 of 2

Today, it is our privilege to feature excerpts from our interview with John Jezewski. He has been a registered homeopath and Living Nutrition Practitioner for almost 30 years and treated hundreds of people. This gentleman from the UK is a specialist in living nutrition, alkaline health, chronic disease, weight loss, longevity, and mental and emotional health. Additionally, he is an inspiring health coach and the founder and principal of the College of Living Nutrition that offers accredited nutrition courses in London and Birmingham for those interested in training to become a professional nutrition therapist. Mr. Jezewski is a proponent of the alkaline vegan diet. This lifestyle features a high intake of fruits, vegetables, and other healthy plant foods while restricting processed junk foods. Advocates of this way of eating say this particular diet helps maintain wellness and repels serious diseases. Our blood tends typically to be on the slightly alkaline side with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. Therefore, by choosing more alkaline foods, it means that you may be able to “alkalize” your body to achieve or maintain the ideal pH level. “So there is a big problem. Big, big problem with people becoming too acidic, and then they resort to taking antacids. But again, you need to get to the root cause. And the root cause is eating too much food, too many drinks that are acidic. If you’re drinking cola, you’re drinking coffee, you’re drinking tea, you’re eating chips - deep-fried chips, all of this is adding to the acidity problem. And it’s a big problem. So you need to eat alkaline food, which is vegan, and alkaline - not acidic.”

Acupuncturist Lisa K.Y. Wong (vegan): The Magic of Auricular Medicine, Part 3 of 3

Acupuncturist Lisa K.Y. Wong (vegan): The Magic of Auricular Medicine, Part 3 of 3

"It is a complete, comprehensive medical modality, where we use the ear to do diagnosis and treatment of all the conditions in the body, up to 200 diseases, and 500 symptoms.” All these different expressions in our ear, whether it's discoloration, flakiness of skin, the blood vessel protruding, and pain or different degrees of pain, all these are different ways the ear, our inner healer, or inner doctor, wants to tell us about what's going on. And the location of these symptoms will tell us where the problem is.” According to Ms. Wong, there are different “control panels" within us, including the ears, eyes, hands, and feet. She developed the Healing by Design Self-Care Method to show people how they can easily cure various illnesses, pains and discomforts. “I want to first help them recognize that these parts of their body have these special abilities to let them check what's going on in their body ahead of time before they are experiencing discomfort or pain, or any health challenges. Because it's so simple, I want to teach kids early in their lives. My dream is that all the children will grow up learning this as a life skill that their parents would teach them, just as common as brushing their teeth every day." "My new definition of what optimum health is, is when not only the ear, but in all your control panels in your body, you cannot find any pain. And that is the best measurement that someone is in optimum health. I believe that your inner healer has an expectation of you, based on your genes, your own lifestyle, your habits, your diet, everything combined makes what optimum health is for you. So, it is definitely a new concept." Ms. Wong has been a vegetarian for more than 25 years and vegan for the past eight years. “Through our non-profit, I teach people about the importance of the vegan diet. If they want to reach optimum health, this is a necessary, a central part and that is definitely, absolutely necessary.”

Acupuncturist Lisa K.Y. Wong (vegan): The Magic of Auricular Medicine, Part 2 of 3

Auricular Medicine is a scientific medical system used to diagnose and treat many different diseases using the ears. Because auricular points are specific locations connected to different areas of the body, if a part of our body has trouble, the corresponding point of the ear will reflect this. Based on this unique mechanism, many ailments can be found and cured by manipulating the corresponding acupressure points. The ear performs the exceptional function of recording the body’s physical history. This can assist Auricular Medicine practitioners in gathering past and present medical information about the client through a process called ear reading. “We read the ear and get the information about what you’ve been through, so basically getting your medical history from reading your ear. And not just what happened to you before, but also what’s happening now in your body; and because the ear has so much information, including that information, genetic information, the genetic predisposition that’s within your genes, that also can be detected in the ear.” In Auricular Medicine, the shape of the ear is said to resemble the resting human fetus. Based on this model, an Auricular Medicine practitioner can tell which points of the ear are associated with which parts of the body. Sometimes, simply pressing a specific place on the ear can eliminate a health condition’s symptoms. “And then, I find a pain in your ear that connects to that pain, and help them make that connection and through just simple massage of that part of the ear, their pain goes away.” Lisa developed the Healing By Design Method, an effective three-step process to initiate self-healing. She now demonstrates how to apply the three steps to relieve a headache.

Acupuncturist Lisa K.Y. Wong (vegan): The Magic of Auricular Medicine, Part 1 of 3

Today, we feature the first portion of our interview with Lisa K.Y. Wong, a vegan licensed acupuncturist and Auricular Medicine specialist in California, USA. Ms. Wong will graciously guide us to better understand the ear and our body’s powerful self-healing system through the viewpoint of Auricular Medicine. “It is a complete, comprehensive medical modality, where we use the ear to do diagnosis and treatment of all the conditions in the body, up to 200 diseases, and 500 symptoms. Many of the symptoms that most people don’t even know about until much later. Ms. Wong is the founder of the Center for Healing by Design, a non-profit organization established in 2015 to help people get in touch with their doctor within. Lisa developed the Healing By Design Method, an easy 3-step process that uses the body’s built-in tools for self-healing and accelerating repair and recovery. The organization’s vision is to engage, educate and empower people worldwide with effective self-care skills to prevent and overcome health challenges in their lives. To convey her passion for spreading this easy and effective self-care method globally, Lisa scaled the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, in July 2015 for her initiative called “Climb Every Mountain Self-Care Movement.” The project’s vision is to help people prevent illness and disease at almost no cost, improve lives for people with and without access to medical care, empower people to heal themselves by using the body’s wisdom and ignite a transformation in healthcare treatment through the concept of self-care. The ear is a small, yet important, part of our body in promoting health. It’s not merely an organ for hearing, but also a sophisticated structure which can be used to treat diseases. Healing through ear manipulation has been employed for approximately 2,500 years. It is recorded in the Huang Di Nei Jing, or The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, an ancient Chinese medical text that has been regarded as the fundamental doctrinal source for Traditional Chinese Medicine. How miraculous that the body can really tell us all the conditions about, what of the body is going on, dealing with, and allows us to treat as well by manipulating the acupressure points in the ear, whether we do it with needles, or using just simply a finger. All the different ways to manipulate the ear, by giving massage, or heat, or all kinds of ways to get the body to change the energy in the body.

Fasting Ourselves Out of the Pleasure Trap: Dr. Alan Goldhamer (vegan), Part 3 of 3

00:13:50

Fasting Ourselves Out of the Pleasure Trap: Dr. Alan Goldhamer (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Today, Dr. Goldhamer will continue to share his wisdom on progressing to a healthier lifestyle. Skipping one or two meals in a day is easily attainable, but when it comes to truly long periods of purposely not eating, this is a different matter and requires careful guidance. “I might want to point out that fasting is done by everyone. Everybody fasts when they go to bed at night and they don't eat, for whether it's 6 hours, or 8 hours, or 10, or 12, or even as we often recommend 16 hours, people are fasting. And so now the question is, ‘What about with intermittent fasting? What if we narrow the feeding window which is often recommended?’ So by not eating 3 hours before you go to bed, let's say you don't eat after, say, 6 o'clock and you don't eat breakfast, say, before 9 am, now you've got a period of anywhere from 12 to 16 hours, depending on the specifics, where you're fasting, and some have suggested that even that brief period of intermittent fasting is enough to induce hormone changes and other changes over time, cumulatively, that may have health-promoting benefits. It's also possible by narrowing the feeding window to 8, or 10, or 12 hours a day that you may tend to eat less." "Fasting can create an environment where the body can get rid of pathogenic bacteria in the gut. You have 5 pounds (2.26 kg) of bacteria living in your intestinal tract right now, maybe 1,000 different strains. These are living creatures, living, eating, drinking, and defecating inside you right now. So, you have 5 pounds (2.26 kg) of bacteria pooing inside your body as we speak, and what your body poos inside you will depend on what you feed them. So, if you want those bacteria pooing trimethylamine oxidase into you and increasing your risk of heart disease and cancer, people may choose to eat meat. If you want to have your bacteria pooing fertilizer into you, including vitamin K and other things, then I would recommend a whole plant food diet, particularly starchy vegetable materials."

00:12:32

Fasting Ourselves Out of the Pleasure Trap: Dr. Alan Goldhamer (vegan), Part 2 of 3

“And so what we advocate is people eat a health-promoting whole plant food SOS-free diet. SOS is, of course, is the international symbol of danger, but it also stands for the chemicals added to food, including salt, oil, and sugar, that fool the satiety mechanisms of the brain and create what we call ‘the pleasure trap.’” Today, Dr. Goldhamer delves into the details of water fasting and how it can be a mode to restore health. "A big part of our energy and function is involved in digestion. Digestion is a really energy-consuming, intense process and that may be one of the benefits of fasting is that you don't have to put a lot of energy into all of those processes, you're living on reserves that are burned very efficiently, and it may be that the body's ‘energy’ so to speak, can be diverted into healing rather than carrying on functions of digestion and assimilation, and elimination. ” “You start with the feeding that's done before fasting. One of the things that we encourage patients to do is to adopt a whole plant food diet, but even more than that, the few days before fasting, if they limit their diet to fruit, salads, and steamed and starchy vegetables, that actually seems to be the best preparation for undergoing fasting, particularly eliminating a lot of the drugs like caffeine and other things that have such uncomfortable withdrawal reactions.” “One of the mistakes that people make is they try to maintain higher activity levels when they're fasting because they think that that's going to facilitate more weight loss, but what it actually does is it facilitates more protein breakdown. So by resting, you can increase the likelihood that most of the fuel that you are burning is going to be fat rather than protein.” “What I can tell you is that in fasting, and also in modified fasting, or fasting mimicking programs, one of the changes that happens is the satiety hormones tend to increase and so it makes it more possible to rebalance people's hormonal issues. And therefore, after fasting, they find they can reach satiety with a whole plant food diet more readily than they had when they were on a conventional program with a lot of refined carbohydrates.”

Fasting Ourselves Out of the Pleasure Trap: Dr. Alan Goldhamer (vegan), Part 1 of 3

To encourage the public to return to a healthier life, Dr. Goldhamer co-authored the book “The Pleasure Trap: Mastering The Hidden Force That Undermines Health and Happiness” to share his insightful observations on removing barriers to wellness and the practice of water fasting. In 1984, Dr. Goldhamer established the Santa Rosa, California, USA-based TrueNorth Health Center that provides medical, chiropractic, naturopathic, massage, and acupuncture services. The center is now the largest facility in the world that specializes in medically supervised water-only fasting. For more than 35 years, it has assisted over 20,000 people in regaining their health. He has followed a plant-based diet for more than 40 years and believes this healthy lifestyle is the key to reaching optimal health. His recommendations for well-being include eating whole plant foods, a SOS- (salt, oil, sugar) free diet, exercise, and sleep. As most people today are drawn to processed foods, Dr. Goldhamer considers them a pleasure trap leading to overconsumption and that this eating habit can lead to conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and auto-immune disorders. Dr. Goldhamer provides his opinion on why people are attracted to flavorsome food that is unwholesome. “This is one of the most difficult things you can ever ask a person to do - adapt a health-promoting diet in a world designed to make them fat, sick, and miserable. These are the causes of the heart disease, cancer, and stroke that are the leading causes of death and debility. And because people are addicts, it's very difficult for them at first to see it.” For people who want to back away from the pleasure trap, the TrueNorth Health Center has an effective method to help make the switch to healthy, vegan whole foods. Dr. Goldhamer explains. “That's one of the real benefits of fasting. Because during fasting, the body neuro-adapts; It's like rebooting the hard drive in a computer that's corrupted. Whole natural foods begin to have a natural appeal and the artificial stimulation that comes from essentially drugged foods if you would or foods that have these chemicals added to them, become less and less appealing.”

Proper Emotion Management Makes Us Healthier

Proper Emotion Management Makes Us Healthier

Emotions not only influence our quality of life but also affect our physical and mental health. Positive feelings like happiness and satisfaction can stimulate our creativity, and enhance our empathy, thus encouraging us to assist others. When encountering setbacks or pressure, we may have negative feelings, such as anxiety and frustration, which impact our bodies, by causing our blood pressure to rise as well as heartburn and other ailments to be experienced. The emergence of negative feelings can mean that some of our needs or sentiments are ignored. Expressing our repressed feelings allows us a chance to reflect on ourselves and remind us to examine things with a more positive attitude. We can seek support and advice to dissolve the dissatisfactions in our hearts. If we are feeling down, we can think of things that make us happy, the people that we’d like to thank, or do something we like, such as listening to music, exercising, meditating, or practicing yoga. Even just breathing a few times deeply can make us feel relaxed and pacified emotionally. “Don’t stop your anger or hurtful feeling. Just go through it and quickly, with no resentment and heal it after. Anger, hurt, pain is the natural feeling of physical elements. It’s just you don’t know how to handle anger, that is the problem. Okay? If somebody hurts you, of course you feel hurt. You are not a wooden table. And when people provoke you unreasonably, or you think that they provoke you, you are bound to be angry, and that is all right. But we must understand, the nature of anger is not very constructive most of the time. So if we have to be angry, get it over with. Don’t try to suppress too much your anger. You’ll be sick. You’ll be crazy. It’s a natural feeling. Don’t carry it too long; you’ll drown yourself in anger. It’s no good for yourself and for the party involved. Get angry, talk. You don’t have to be sarcastic or hurtful when you talk. Just air your view and tell them that they made you angry because, because, because... And you wish that in the future it doesn’t happen again because you are not... going to tolerate it again. Air your view, finish, and love each other again. That’s what I think. But we just know, the anger, the quality and the real face of anger, and we’re in control of it, and don’t let the anger be our master. Anger suppressed can make you ill physically. So don’t hurt yourself more by swallowing the poisonous anger within you. Spit it out in a proper way.”

The Magic Plant: Moringa Oleifera

The Magic Plant: Moringa Oleifera

“Moringa is consumed daily in India, Africa, and even the Philippines, where it is quite popular. This special plant is highly recommended by many natural therapists and experts that research medically valuable plants.” “Those [moringa] seeds can be consumed raw. We can take them dry. When they are consumed raw, they have other advantages; when they are consumed dry, they also have other advantages. We can also talk about the roots of the moringa which are also used when we want to make some medicines or some ointments, we use it. The ash even, the ash from fallen branches of the moringa, this ash is also useful. All parts of moringa oleifera are useful. Due to those three kinds of scientifically-proven advantages, moringa is called the ‘miracle plant.’ Through long-lasting, daily, regular consumption, one will notice the change!” “Moringa is a very unusual and unique plant because it not only contains a wide variety of nutrients but also they are present in large amounts. The leaves and seeds of moringa possess abundant vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, fats, minerals, and phytochemicals.” “Generally speaking, for the same quantity of moringa and the same quantity of fruits and vegetables that I will mention in a second; we have four times more vitamin A in moringa than carrots. Regarding vitamin C, we have seven times more in moringa than an orange. Regarding calcium, we have four times more (calcium) in moringa than milk. If we take beef for example, we have four times more protein in moringa than beef. There is 25-times more iron in derivatives of moringa than spinach derivatives that we call here gboma.” Different parts of this plant, such as roots, leaves, and seeds, are applied for various therapeutic purposes. Moringa has high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that may lower one’s cancer risk. Research has also shown it is effective in preventing or treating various gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and infectious diseases. “It has an effect against bacteria! So, when you are used to using moringa, bacteria have no way to grow in your body. There is also an effect against viruses. This substance does not allow viruses to grow.”

Ananda Dhara Yoga Village: Helping People Attain Bliss, Part 3 of 3

In today’s show, he discusses positive changes that have happened to some of his young students with special needs and their families while practicing yoga. “I think the most beautiful thing that I see is families become more peaceful. Because yoga basically, ultimately, is about growing love. And that loving feeling, that unconditional openness, is what yoga gives you.” “That, I think, is the most beautiful gift that we see with yoga for children and yoga in families. It changes the whole family dynamic.” “The first thing I think children learn is they don’t just get excited, they also know how to cool down. And they know how to find their peace. Now, I think this is something all the children should learn is how to find their own peace. We have a teacher in Malaysia; she is very wonderful. And she tells her children you must find your ‘peace button.’” “So actually this is a very nice thing. The first benefit. Now, the second benefit is children who do regular kids yoga, whether it’s with the parents or in the class, they don’t get sick so often. They don’t easily get colds; they don’t easily get fevers, they have better digestion, their lungs are stronger, their immune system is better. And I think this is wonderful. The third benefit I can think of now is emotional stability. Because yoga is about learning who you are, your feelings, and your thought. You have to learn to observe them, and analyze them, and then work with them.” “And another benefit is that children who are connected with their inner universe, they make better choices in life. Yoga gives this wisdom to make better choices in life. And I wish that for everybody. I think we can have a better world. So we have a slogan: ‘Yoga in schools, peace in the world.’ Yoga practice can uplift our lives tremendously. As more and more people take up yoga, we may see a positive, global shift in consciousness, leading to a more balanced and harmonious planet.”

Ananda Dhara Yoga Village: Helping People Attain Bliss, Part 2 of 3

In today’s program, he will discuss how children and teens enjoy healthier lifestyles by learning meditation and yoga. But first, we will briefly cover the yoga practices that Sri P.R. Sarkar’s spiritual organization Ananda Marga, meaning the “Path of Bliss” propagates. Ananda Marga’s techniques of self-realization include yoga postures, Kiirtan, Kaoshikii, and meditation. In the Western world, people tend to equate yoga solely with yoga postures. However, this only accounts for a small but essential part of the entire system and serves as preparation for meditation. Tamminga feels that all can benefit from practicing the holistic yogic lifestyle. “Now yoga, it brings you in touch with your inner self, so this connects with everybody.” This experienced yoga teacher believes it is important for children to have exposure to meditation and yoga at a young age. He explains. “I learned yoga when I was 15. Actually, I first got into yoga philosophy when I was 12. I went with my mom to learn meditation when I was 15. I never stopped, every morning and every evening for all this time. And now I am 60. So for 45 years, I've been doing meditation every day. It's my life. So we like to train children from a young age to sit down and be quiet with themselves to learn their body and find peace. And we don’t need to do it for a long time. So when they become teenagers, they don’t have such a conflicted mind, and they know a path to find their own peace because they learned it from when they were small. For many kids nowadays, we see that they have some behavioral imbalances, maybe hyperactive, maybe slow speech development, or maybe they cannot concentrate; these kinds of problems. Kids yoga can be beneficial. So actually, the practice can be used for different ages. And what really inspired me is, of course, there are so many great teachers. And without great teachers, you don’t learn. So there are people who have done things before us, and from them we learn, and then we start to practice with our children and different ages. And I think we have to be very thankful to this lineage, this yoga family where we all grow together to develop as better human beings.”

Ananda Dhara Yoga Village: Helping People Attain Bliss, Part 1 of 3

Today, we are privileged to introduce you to Rutger Tamminga, the co-founder of a special institution that endeavors to spread the yoga spirit, the Ananda Dhara Yoga Village – Center for Applied Neohumanism. Based in Taichung City, Taiwan, also known as Formosa, the center was established in 1995 by Mr. Tamminga, who is originally from the Netherlands, and Mohamukta of Formosa. Ananda Dhara, which means “abode of bliss” in Sanskrit, is a place aspiring to promote and apply the Neohumanism philosophy of the venerated Indian spiritual guru Sri Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar, also known as Baba, through many initiatives, including yoga and wellness classes for different age groups and people with special needs, group meditation, yoga teacher training, and storytelling workshops. Starting from scratch 25 years ago, the couple eventually established this mountain spiritual retreat center in a beautiful setting. They have also founded a kindergarten, published an assortment of yoga-themed educational materials for children such as storybooks, music CDs, and kindergarten curriculums. In this episode, Rutger shares his perspectives on yoga and now provides an overview of the practice. Mr. Tamminga feels yoga practitioners should pay close attention to diet and discusses his vegetarian lifestyle. “Part of the reason why the world is heating up is because of meat production. But to come back to the yoga side of our diet, there are other foods we also avoid taking. Apart from meat, we don’t eat eggs. They are not good for our mental peace. This kind of sensitivity develops when you practice more. The idea of yoga is to develop a purer mind, a more stable and peaceful mind. And our food affects how we think.” Yoga has also been shown to help children with attention problems, as well as to support executive function development. “We also do yoga with children who have special needs. And together with my wife we have a kindergarten, and in our school, we get children who have maybe developmental problems. And we have found yoga to be beneficial to these children also. So actually, yoga is for everyone, but it needs to be adjusted according to every person.”

Taiwan Adventist Hospital – A Vegetarian Hospital with a Caring Mission, Part 3 of 3

Today, we introduce TAH’s healthy lifestyle project called NEWSTART. This wellness initiative was created by the Weimar Institute in California, USA, an entity that was also founded by Adventists. NEWSTART is an acronym for Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunlight, Temperance, Air, Rest, and Trust (in Divine Power). To correspond with the hospital’s mission to maintain public health, TAH established the Sanyu Health Education Center as a NEWSTART program site, with the Weimar Institute’s support and guidance. The Sanyu Health Education Center, located in Nantou, Taiwan (Formosa), was founded to improve the public’s well-being by teaching disease prevention strategies and providing services related to physical and mental wellness promotion. We were honored to interview Dr. James Wu, the center’s chief executive officer who kindly shared his insights on how NEWSTART keeps program participants healthy and enhances lives. As a vegan, he advocates a diet of “4 Noes and 1 High,” with meals served at the Sanyu Health Education Center following these guidelines. Dr. Wu explains. “‘Four Noes and One High.’ This means no refined oil, no refined sugar, no eggs, and no milk, and a diet high in fiber. That means a vegan diet. Veganism was mentioned in the [Holy] Bible, in the Book of Genesis, which was written several thousand years ago. Records from 4,000 years ago say that we humans were herbivores originally. The evidence is in our dental structure, the wavy lining and length of our intestines, and the folds of our large intestine. Humans have a biological structure that is suitable for the vegan diet. Cows, sheep, horses, camels, and elephants are all vegetarians. They are physically strong and live very long lives. Their body structure is that of vegetarians. We humans, by nature, are vegetarians. In the [Holy] Bible, Genesis, Chapter 1, it is said that all fruits, vegetables, and plants are food for us. So, recently the plant-based diet has become a trend.” Our health is reflective of our daily lifestyle. An inappropriate diet and undesirable habits are the main causes of many chronic illnesses. The NEWSTART program provides a solution by helping nurture practices that are beneficial to one’s health, including mental wellness. A result of NEWSTART’s focus is an overall reduced need for medical treatment by people completing the program, thus lowering their healthcare costs. We are very grateful to Dr. Wu for sharing his knowledge and providing us with a useful background on the NEWSTART program. Let’s all make a new start, embracing the wholesome plant-based lifestyle, which brings peace and wellness to all beings.
