Transform in August

Take Action. Be Strong. Move Forward.
These are words for Transform. Transform is one of The Four Seasons of Wellbeing—Discover, Transform, Awaken, and Integrate — which refer to distinct rhythms or periods during one’s journey in life, as well as seasons of care in Network Spinal Analysis. A season is appropriate to ‘‘readiness’’ for reorganization just as seeds are planted or fruit ripens—all in their time. (from http://www.reorganizationalhealing.com/ROH/Seasons.html)
Our office is in a season of Transform. In direct contrast to the hot, lazy days of summer, we have action going on both at our current Westbrook location, and our new Bowness location. Instead of determining what we like and don't like about where we are and how to make it work, we are making changes. We are figuring out the logistics on the new space and bringing together more practitioners under a one roof.
We have committed to a bigger contribution through our work, both to our current practice member…

We've got News!

We have so much to share!  
The big news is that Elan will soon have a new home!
We're currently building the walls, and expect to move at the end of the summer, with Westbrook open until the end of September.  The new office will be in Bowness-the little community in the west that our family has come to love.  We're excited to share our small town with you!  We will be able to continue to offer excellent care to you and your family, but with extended hours, accessible driving and parking, and a beautiful office that we are watching unfold. The new address is:
#48, 7930 Bowness Road NW
We'll be near the former Bowness library site, on the way to the Bowness Arena, High School, and beside the shops with Bownesian Grocer.  


Community

As part of Elan Family Wellness Centre's July theme of Community, here are Sandra Catania's thoughts.  (Sandra offers Holistic Reflexology sessions at Elan)
I am writing this piece on my laptop, perched out on my front step. One of the things that I think of when I think of community is our immediate neighbourhood. The folks all around us. But when I think about it, we only know our immediate neighbours by name and only see some of the others occasionally on our bike trips around the block and on Halloween when we make the rounds. In this day of communicating by computers, I believe our online communities to be much more active. We spend so much of our lives connected to our screens, exchanging information and support. And while I do miss some of the real life contact (and do still see the need for it), I have seen and experienced first hand how our great need to find a community or “tribe” to belong to can be fulfilled quickly and with ease electronically. The www is a wonderf…

40 Days

Image
My 40th Birthday has arrived and I'm now one day past.  I am pleased with my 39 days of 39 project, but feel I want to continue something for the next 40 days.

I have a few ideas brewing, thanks to a little google searching.  

My favourite comes from this quote that I saw much earlier this year, by Rumi.  
"A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation, and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work like the universe. What nine months of attention does for an embryo forty early mornings alone will do for your gradually growing wholeness." ~Rumi
There is something so tied to the number 40.  Death and Rebirth.  Starting anew.  A cycle.  Perfection?  In case you want to have a peak at what is out there in the internet, here are a few links.  
What's with the 40 Days in the Bible?
From Yahoo ...According to the Bible, it is the number of the waiting, the preparation, the test or the punishment. Also the Bible often resorts t…
