Dec 2012: Goofing off @ Alta, Little Cottonwood Canyon, Sandy/Alta, Utah. 14-mile drive from 90th South I-15 exit. Beautiful. | Mother Nature is constantly calling for us to come out of our homes and artificial environments to play with her, to breath her fresh air, to recreate on her lands & waters, to soak up her sun, to smell her flowers. Connection is the Key. Make a goal to get out & commune with nature for a least 1-hour a day this year as weather permits; whether it be through gardening, walking, sports or site-seeing. Reconnecting with the source of life often can induce healing more effectively than any other therapeutic intervention.

Mar 2012: *ALWAYS REMEMBER: You live in one of the MOST polluted places on the planet! It's just the price we pay to live in an industrialized, high tech society. The U..S. Government has intentionally set aside millions of acres of land as National Parks & Recreation Areas to enable us to escape the urban pollution on the weekends to air out & recharge our bodies - naturally. So, if you're feeling down or overwhelmed - head for the canyons; even if you don't ski or snowboard, just drive to a resort, roll down the window & read a book. You'll be glad you did. | Driving out of the Salt Lake Valley Inversion, up Little Cottonwood Canyon to Alta Ski Resort | This is the air we breath that fuels (..or pollutes...) our cells, and is a MAJOR factor in how optimally we feel & function each day! | "You'll be glad you did."

BC: *The "Inner Sun" is your "Solar Plexus", a collection of nerve cells & fibers located outside your brain (behind your navel & just above your kidneys) that fuel your digestive tract & energy production organs. As this sequence revolves around bending the spine where these nervous tissues are located, it effectively "awakens" the energy of the sun within you., which otherwise lies mostly dormant due to inadequate stimulation. A minimum of 3 cycles (12 or more is ideal), up to performing them continuously for1-hour is recommended by adept yogis. | *
