    Birth, Rebirth, and Yoga with the Divine

    in Spirituality

    Hostess Lisa Winton and Swami Jayananda will talk about birth and the trauma that we must go through in order to begin our human life on this planet. They will discuss why that first birth creates such a resistance to the "second" birth of the individual in the Divine. They will show how your chronological age can be used to mark points of passage with rites of passage for your apotheosis. Listen as they explain some of the tried and true methods of rebirthing your physical body in the Life Force to become a child of the Divine. They will talk about some early concepts of "Sons of Men" and "Sons of God" to substantiate suggestions to rebirth your own body.  Learn how to use a perfect practice of Kriya Yoga to initiate the progressive cycle and expand your identity beyond physical reality.

    Beach Beautiful-Does Electrobody Sculpting Really work

    in Weight Loss

    People want to know if Electro Body Sculpting really works.  There are so many modalities for slimming and Pamela speaks about medical studies done in Australia as well as provides client testimonials about the effectiveness of Electrotherapy commonly referred to as Electro Body Sculpting.


    1.Sculpt and tone specific body parts resistant to exercise alone


    2. Firm sagging skin from sudden weight loss or aging


    3. Accelerate weight loss


    Through my own personal experience with trying to find an alternative to plastic surgery for my stomach after an emergency surgery compounded with the effects of aging I discovered Electro Body Sculpting after having tried a myriad of other spa modalities for toning and firming body skin and I have dedicated my time to helping others looking for an effective solution for weight loss, sagging body skin, and targeting specific body areas.


    I am originally from Kansas City Missouri and graduated from University of Missouri and have had a long time passion for fitness and health and beauty and provide nutrtional counseling along with electrotherapy services.
