    Brain Injury Round Table with Louise Mathewson,

    in Education

    Internationally published in numerous anthologies, including the bestselling Cup of Comfort series, award-winning author Louise Mathewson has always written about the sacred moments in everyday experiences. Today, those experiences hold even deeper meaning.


    Her book, A Life Interrupted: Living with Brain Injury,  is a collection of transformative poetry chronicling her emergence from a coma following an auto-accident in which she suffered a serious Traumatic Brain Injury, her recovery journey, and triumphant return to her writing career. Writing poetry became her lifeline.
    A Life Interrupted: Living with Brain Injury speaks to all who face the daily physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of living with any life-changing physical or mental health condition, including the family and caregivers who support them. Louise believes that writing is healing and research supports that. She also loves sharing resources that she found helpful in transcending trauma. Louise, who holds a Master’s in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University Chicago, a Bachelor’s in Latin, is a lover of words. She used to facilitate support groups for children of divorce, alcoholism, and grief, teaching children healthy ways to express feelings of loss. Louise is a passionate advocate for the many who face the daily physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of living with a disability. http://www.pearlsong.com/alifeinterrupted.htm,

    Guest: Karen Koenig author of The Food and Feelings Workbook

    in Relationships

    About the book:


    An extraordinary, powerful connection exists between feeling and feeding that, if damaged, may lead to one relying on food for emotional support, rather than seeking authentic happiness. This unique workbook takes on the seven emotions that plague problem eaters — guilt, shame, helplessness, anxiety, disappointment, confusion, and loneliness — and shows readers how to embrace and learn from their feelings. Written with honesty and humor, the book explains how to identify and label a specific emotion, the function of that emotion, and why the emotion drives food and eating problems. Each chapter has two sets of exercises: experiential exercises that relate to emotions and eating, and questionnaires that provoke thinking about and understanding feelings and their purpose. Supplemental pages help readers identify emotions and chart emotional development. The final part of the workbook focuses on strategies for disconnecting feeling from food, discovering emotional triggers, and using one’s feelings to get what one wants out of life.


    About the author:


    I am a psychotherapist, national educator, international author, and an expert on the psychology of eating–the how and why, not the what, of it. For more than three decades, my mission has been to help people with eating and weight problems learn to eat “normally” and maintain a healthy, stable weight for life without dieting and deprivation. My therapy practice is in Sarasota, FL, where I do tele-coaching and Skype consultation worldwide. As a recovered chronic dieter and binge-eater, I meld my personal recovery wisdom with my professional knowledge and experience to resolve eating problems.

    Stem Cells and Neurological Diseases: Facts and Fiction

    in Health

    Curing vision loss, growing  new skin for burn patients, growing blood vessels, and curing neurological diseases. These are a few of the proposed benefits from stem cell therapy. Embryonic stem cell research has been a source of political debate and controversy, but adult stem cells exist throughout our body after embryonic development and there is some evidence to suggest that they can differentiate to become other cell types. This potential capacity for adult stem cells to be instructed to specialize interests scientists and researchers who hope it will lead to a cure for Parkinson's and other neurological diseases.


    Separating stem cell fact from fiction will be the role of my guest, Dr. Juan R. Sanchez-Ramos,   Movement Disorders Professor and Researcher, Department of Neurology, USF Health, Tampa, Fl.  Dr. Ramos’ Clinical interests include: neurodegenerative diseases with focus on Huntington’s and Parkinson's disease. His research interests include: neurodegeneration, neurotoxicology and adult stem cell biology. Dr. Ramos is the Medical Director for the Parkinson Research Foundation, and provides monthly Ask the Doctor lectures at its community based program, Parkinson Place in Sarasota, Florida.

    Steve McAllister - Write-In Candidate For Sarasota County Commissioner

    in Elections

    Some people do things by the book. Others write the book. Enter Steve McAllister. He is running for Sarasota County Commissioner District 2, but hopes to find his way onto the ballot and into a seat on the Commission via write-in votes on November 4th.


    Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes Steve McAllister, Director of Operational Development for Sarasota's The Flow Factory and Common Wealth Time Bank, to the show on Tuesday, August 12 at 12 pm Eastern Time to discuss his creative and compelling campaign.


    Addressing the same old problems with the thinking that has caused them needs to be abandoned, according to Steve. He will discuss why he chose to run and do so as a write-in candidate. We'll also hear how his eight-point platform can help Sarasota "move past the status quo by opening up to a larger world view."

    Men’s Spiritual Radio Hour, Tues, 8pm EST

    in Spirituality

    Mark Rawson and Mike Snyder, One Tuesday of every month 8:00-9:00PM EST  (Jan 20)


    The Men’s Spiritual Radio Hour- A show about men and their Spiritual Journey


    Guest for our Tuesday show is Cyril and Cyndy Mayer 


    On the show Cyril will give a 10 minute men’s spoken meditation using Mike Snyder music in background, to get copies of Mike musis, please go to  www.mikesnydercc.com


    Rev. Cyril Mayer – Bio
     As a young adult, Cyril considered becoming a priest, but this changed when the Vietnam war began.  Cyril chose to be a conscientious objector and serve the country as an orderly working in a hospital.  He enjoyed helping people get well so much that he decided to go back to school to study nursing.  Early in his career as an RN, he discovered alternative healing modalities.  He became a channel of healing energy and studied metaphysical philosophy; eventually co-founding an intentional metaphysical healing community in the Pocono Mountains of PA in 1987.  This is where he met his wife Cyndy.  Both Cyril and Cyndy became respected teachers of the philosophy of the Living Spirit and mentors to many young healers and truth seekers.  They are both ordained ministers through Metaphysical Universal Ministries in Allentown, PA. They are in the process of relocating to Sarasota, Fl to continue their spiritual journey.


    Rev. Cyndy was a natural intuitive even as a child.  She grew up on a farm in New Jersey where she had a horse named Cheyenne.  Through her telepathic connection with Cheyenne, Cyndy became aware of the basic connection between all things.

    Live Show From Mangrove Killing Protest

    in Politics Progressive

    Live Show  From  Mangrove Killing Protest


    Today at 4:00pm


    To the southern end of Palma Sola Boulevard, across from the Palma Sola Bay Club development site. Bring your signs.


    Tell developers and prospective home buyers they should not sacrifice protected species for personal vanity. Join our celebration of Arbor Day. Let the world know you want justice for mangroves. 


    The majority of the Planning Commissioners today voted to approve the observation deck. The Planning Staff and the developers' representatives denied knowing about the DEP investigation. They claimed they used a certified cutter and that mostly what they cut were vines and Brazilian Pepper. Not true. But as usual, citizens are not allowed to rebut. Only developers, their spokespeople, and planning staff are. I presented evidence, including my documented phone call to the DEP, about the site. The other thing I learned--and I am appalled by this--is that our planning staff did not visit the site prior to deciding to approve the observation deck. How can you approve something for a sensitive conservation easement and never visit it prior to making your decision? That is poor practice, in my opinion. I stated that the DEP rep told me that citizens' concerns were "legitimate" and that the mangrove cutting at the site had "exceeded the limits of the scope of the general permit." I had heard that weeks ago Commissioner Chappie had been informed about the cutting and the dEP inquiry, and I have an email from a Palma Sola resident to the DEP rep in which she tells the rep to send documentation to Chappie when it is ready.http://www.thebradentontimes.com/news/2015/01/15/opinion/developer_s_dock_request_looks_like_two_step_circumvention_of_mangrove_policy/
