    The Entrancing Power of Myths, Fables and Metaphor

    in Psychology

    The fine art of communication has always relied heavily on myths, fables and metaphor as a method of saying things indirectly. This is known as multi-level communication. Its complicated.
    Conscious awareness about these little understood patterns of perception create the ability to take a second look at the metaphors we use to make sense of our reationships, businesses, politics and lives. This is an emotional level of understanding - where perception, behavior and results evolve. You will probably be amazed, entranced and inspired by recognizing your ability to adjust these aspects of your life.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Carol Koziol of Natural Courage

    in Self Help

    London, Ontario – We all seek the courage to strive through change, but if you can believe and act on what’s in your heart, courage comes naturally.


    Carol Koziol is a self-described “courage coach” and the founder of Natural Courage, where she serves as a guide  to help people experiencing change by naturally reconnecting their inner and outer world. Carol says she likes to work with people who are ready to turn their bucket lists into highlight reels.


    “I reconnect people to their courage,” says Carol. “Everyone has natural courage so it’s about becoming aware of it by remembering our strengths, our values.”


    According to Carol, there’s great wisdom in the cycles of nature and how people feel and respond to nature. A conversation over a desk is one thing; a walk on a path can produce totally different results. Carol is deeply passionate about the natural environment and will often weave nature into the work both as a metaphor and a modality.


    “I used nature as a metaphor to catalyze change within me,” says Carol. “We come from nature. There’s no stress. There’s no intensity. It’s softer. It’s gentler. It’s what I’ve experienced and catalyzed and use with my clients.”


    Carol is currently pursuing a PhD in ecopsychology, which studies the relationship between people and nature.


    “The longest journey a person gets to make is the 18 inches from their head to their heart,” says Carol. “I often wonder if more people were encouraged to get out of their heads and find the courage to reconnect to their hearts, perhaps we would live in a better world.”

    Sacred Sunday~I Corinthians Chapter 4/Fools For Christ

    in Spirituality

    Paul of Tarsus: Professional House Sitter

    The apostles are like house sitters taking care of God's place while he's temporarily out of town. Sure, you have to check the references for your house sitter, but other than that, you're good. And Paul's references—namely Jesus—are pretty ironclad. That's why the Corinthians shouldn't judge his work against the work of others. God has already vouched for him. It's not like Paul is never going to face judgment—but that, friends, is up to God himself. In short: don't do God's job for him, Corinthians. But then again, Paul tells them, maybe it's cool for you guys to judge in God's place because you're so amazing. Sarcasm alert! After all, the Corinthians are the greatest, right? They're rich as kings! They have power and wisdom and strength and everyone loves them! They're the best! (Not.) And the poor apostles—like Paul—are just poor and weak and hungry and thirsty and homeless and beaten and weary and… okay, we get it Paul.


    Daddy Dearest

    Look, Paul says, sarcastic comments aside, he's not trying to be a jerk. He doesn't want to embarrass the Corinthians or make them feel bad. Um, okay… He's kind of acting like their dad. Um, Paul, isn't that God's metaphor? Paul watches over them along with Jesus like a father. So do as he says, kids. Paul tells them that he's sending Timothy to Corinth so that he can remind the little children of the church how they should be acting. And if Paul doesn't hear a good report… well, then, he is going to have to come down there, young church! And he might be bringing his belt with him. Run, kids! Thanks to www.shmoop.com

    Teamwork Tango

    in Business

    Today’s organizations require that workers be adaptable. Truly effective leaders know how to follow and how it feels to be a follower. Conversely, in order to be a productive team member, one must understand the difficulties of being a team leader. The daily “dance” between leaders and followers requires mutual understanding and a balance of give and take. As the great Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, said: “To lead, one must follow.” In this program, Yael Schy, creator of the Teamwork Tango®  leadership training approach, shares her philosophy and methodology of using partner dancing principles and exercises for helping leaders and followers in organizations to work together more collaboratively and effectively.


    Yael Schy is a leader in using expressive arts in organizational learning and development. She is principal of Dramatic Strides® Consulting, specializing in leadership development, communication skills, teambuilding and creative decision-making techniques that help people and organizations move forward together. Her unique Teamwork Tango® workshop, which teaches leadership and teambuilding skills through the metaphor of partner dancing, has been presented at numerous professional conferences and organizations in the U.S. and abroad for more than a decade.


    Abigail Clark is a graduate student at the University of Baltimore obtaining her master’s degree in negotiation and conflict management. She left undergrad with the hopes of becoming an addictions counselor, which led her to the University of Maryland School of Social Work. While researching different possibilities, she discovered UB’s Negotiation and Conflict Management program. After reading two course descriptions, she was sold.

    BUILDING YOUR CATHEDRAL:REFLECTIONS ON GEOMETRY & THE BUILDERS MIND

    in Lifestyle

    Within masonry, is perfection; beauty; a universe in utterly remarkable balance.  Poor is man that blames himself for not seeing what is there.  He has not found the perspective that helps him understand that he is surrounded by beauty. 


    The Chinese approach to beauty, does not immediately disclose all. It leaves something to the imagination, to allow a man to loose himself in his contemplation, creating the road of a spiritual experience. Reflections, memory, deeply surreal, contradictory, magical.


    By turning to the East, we move from that which is manicured and manufactured and that which is natural.  Can our western eye see in this cultural confusion, a message?  In this sense, do symbols, allegory, arcane, perhaps the metaphor in this sense  inspire us in mysterious, essential masonic experience?


    Notice in the ordinary, what lessons are revealed in the garden of them mind? The spiritual purity of freemasonry is a path to understanding. What holds the secret of freemasonry may not be within the walls of the lodge but in nature, the key that unlocks secrets left.  Finding that much sought after key is afterall, a personnal journey that thousands have discovered.  The answers do not come to him.  He leaves behind the predictability of the lodge to discover, not as the first but as the next. 


    It is elemental, vast and very, very old.


    Let go of turmoil and it will let go of you. Listen for the silence in a crowd. Become invisible to conflict and it will pass through you. Then the humble apprentice finds the lesson he has laboured to find. Do not search for it. Be it. Be a mason in mind, body and spirit and notice the life force flows unrestricted.

    Cleaning and Clearing on Talk-N-Angels Radio Show

    in Spirituality

    Cleaning is a practice, it is a chore, it is an activity.  Cleaning makes things better, healthier, more attractive.  Cleaning is a metaphor for what our lives can become.  It makes everything feel better when the space you enter is clean and orderly.  Your body responds to being clean in a way that acts like a breath of fresh air.  To take a shower or bath, or wash the face and brush the teeth is an act of love toward the body and it releases you to become fresh and new, refreshed and energetic.  


    Clearing energy from your field is the same thing.  It is a practice, a chore and an activity but it is not as noticable to the outside world when you don't do it on a regular basis.  When you don't clean your bathtub, over time, you'll notice it becoming dingy and you will not enjoy using the tub as much as when it is clean and smooth, cleared of all the accumulated things that wash away from our bodies when we bathe.  The energy body can become dirty, too.


    This week on Talk-N-Angels, Rita and Mike will be talking about cleaning - as a necessary part of living - and clearing - as a step toward creating space and ferreting out unwanted energies.  Please join us for this conversation with your ideas about cleaning and clearing your home, your body, mind and your spirit.
