Holiday Grief – Help and Tips

The leaves are falling and Fall is in the air.  Halloween has come and gone. To your amazement, Christmas music is already playing and it is early November.  Getting ready for Christmas used to be your favorite thing to do:  i.e. cards, decorating, baking cookies for the grandchildren and planning that special gift for each person.


Now Christmas has become your most dreaded time of the year because your loved one is gone. You ask yourself, “How am I going to survive this year without him or her?”


There are hundreds of people in this same situation and here are some tips that worked over time:


  • Plan ahead for Christmas and what you want you to do this year.
  • Be sure to include important family members in making your decision so no one’s feelings get hurt.


  • Options to consider in your Christmas planning:
  • Do you want to do a traditional thing as always?
  • Do you want to change the tradition by adding something new?
  • Do you want to skip Christmas all together this year?
  • Do you want to celebrate the winter season by going on a trip or cruise?


  • Look at your priorities once you have made a decision on how you and your family want to celebrate Christmas.  Remember that everything doesn’t have to be perfect. Trying to be perfect doesn’t serve us and it can be very frustrating.


  • Let others help you with what you would like to have done.
  • If you can afford it, have dinner catered.
  • You can have a potluck with family and friends.
  • Go to someone else’s house for dinner.


  • Be sure to remember that we all go through the stages of grieving at a different pace. If you feel that you are stuck in a phase, please get help through a local support group or work with a professional counselor.

Pillossage, Thermal Connective Tissue Release, Thermal Pillow Massage Bodywork Techniques
Original massage modality developed by Karen Kowal, RN, LMT, NCTMB,  NCBTMB Provider #451143-09

Description   Pillossage™ is a groundbreaking modality that combines hands-on techniques with specifically designed thermal flax pillows. 
These innovative protocols deepen the therapeutic effect.

Mission   The mission of Pillossage™ training is to educate and excite bodyworkers to successfully integrate the age-old property of heat  with compression and stretching in new and creative ways.
Global Vision
   Pillossage™ therapy will revolutionize the way healthcare professionals approach pain management.  Our vision is a world in which a thermal flax pillow becomes a bodyworker’s second  favorite tool. 


Pillossage™ and Thermal Connective Tissue Release will help the therapist slowly and gently work through the layers of soft tissue to reach the deeper origins of pain as deep as the periosteum.  Level 2 includes extensive Self-Care techniques using Mother Earth Pillows® that will help you maintain your body while teaching your clients how to maintain the work you have done during their session and how to achieve Self-Care for their specific pain patterns.

Clients often want ‘deep-tissue-massage’ but if discomfort is created by the therapist during the massage session, natural guarding will actually increase pain.  This may block your opportunity to reach the causative factors of pain.  Using Thermal Therapy, the therapist can access deep tissues that otherwise are too painful to affect.

Classes teach you how to add  stretching, movement, Assisted Gravitational Stretching and focused compression.  Clients benefit from increased range of motion and decreased pain and leave your table simply amazed!

Pillossage classes remain small to assure 1 on 1 attention for all techniques taught.  Class content will inspire the new therapist as well as intrigue and excite the experienced therapist. Classes cover theory along with approx 80% hands-on exchanges. 

and Thermal Connective Tissue Release Techniques can be used alone or to create one of the freshest, most innovative Massage Modalities to be introduced in years!  Finally, therapy tools that deliver increased therapy & value for clients with less strain for the therapist.

Feedback from each class has been positive and therapists find  the new techniques are applied in almost all their client sessions.  You’ll love the therapy you receive as you learn!


Training class to be held at the Transformation Station on Tuesday, October 25th from 9am-6pm.  $100 for 8CEUs.  To sign up contact Karen at or call 800-344-2072.


How do you know you are loved?  What evidence do you need in order to know you are loved?  What an interesting question!  For some people they know they are loved when given affection, for others it’s respect.

Most people tend to give the evidence what they need in order to feel loved.  For example, let’s say our couples are Respect and AffectionAffection will pour on the affection to Respect, in hopes that Respect will know he’s loved and start giving affection to Affection.  Have I lost you yet?

You can begin to see the problem already . . . Respect isn’t feeling loved, no matter how much affection he is given.  He needs respect to feel loved!  Which isn’t to Affection doesn’t love him.  She just hasn’t been able to show him in a language that he understands; whether that language is respect, affection, being heard, being understood, or the occasional back rub.

The purpose of our Cupid’s Aim Workshop is to examine and understand some of these unconscious patterns.  Each couples’ love dynamic is a unique and often complicated dance.  You can imagine how much more love each person in the relationship is going to feel once they are given the evidence they need.

Join Jonathan Rudd and Paul Rudd for this workshop, “Cupid’s Aim” on Sunday, October 23 at the Transformation Station of SLC from Noon to 2:00pm.  Cost is $60 for couples; $35 for singles.







On September 20th, 7 PM, at the Transformation Station, room 2B, 933 E 3300 S., Certified Iris Analyst, Colin Gates, will be conducting an introductory seminar on iridology. Iridology, is much more than just the study of the iris. It is much more than just a definition of the word.


Basics of iridology and cellular and organ functions will be taught. The exactness of iridology will be explained and the associated True Foods For Man dietary program will be presented. The basic, or first part, of the True Foods For Man program, that provides the foundation for health improvement and recovery from disease and debilitating conditions, will be presented as well. The second part, an analysis of an individual’s eyes, and personal, natural remedial program to health, is available after the seminar for those interested. There is a fee for the iris analysis. It is in three parts; the seminar, pictures of an individual’s eyes, and a personal consultation showing results and providing remedies.


The seminar itself is free. It is designed to give a general overview of functional anatomy and iris analysis. Although iris analysis has been around for decades, to most it is relatively new. The seminar is designed to provide knowledge and confidence in a little known practice that may have answers and cures the medical professionals cannot provide. There are no obligations associated with the seminar, just listen and learn.


The purpose of the seminar is to share information and provide a foundation for understanding the principles of iridology, anatomy, physiology, naturopathy and how the iridology program can help you maintain and/or recover your health. The free seminar also sheds light on the basic flaws of modern medicine, how to halt and counter the destruction of modern medicine’s ravages.


Mr. Gates’ formal education includes anatomy, physiology, exercise physiology, growth and development , kinesiology, bio mechanics, bio chemistry, motor learning, coaching, athletic injuries, and other related fields. Over a decade of martial arts studies (including tai chi and qigong) led to an informal education in Chinese medicine.


A history of college sports and many years of subsequent sports involvement, including current keen competition, sports therapy and coaching, combined with qigong and iridology, has provided Mr. Gates with a unique, functional program.


Still competing and training in a number of sports, instituting aspects of his education, Sifu Gates has an integrated approach to determining conditions of cells and organs and providing evaluations of the conditions, with corresponding techniques and natural remedies.


Come prepared for an informative and interactive seminar.

Gratitude- Top 10 Lists

I espouse wholeness. Connecting our spirits and our bodies creates harmony and builds a complete soul. To this end I ask readers to try this exercise: Identify your top ten best physical features, and then rank your top ten worst features. This exercise has a point. Please do it now. Scribble your lists on a napkin, notepad, or even better, write them in the comments section of this blog. Don’t think or censor, just write 10 best features and 10 worst.

How many items actually made it onto your “best feature” list? Did you strain your brain to find more than five? This exercise often reveals the second list to be much longer than the first. Sadly, we tend to rehearse our flaws in our own minds as well as discussing them with others. But, rarely do we shout to the world that we have beautiful hands and an elegant nose. When was the last time you told someone, out loud, about your best features?

Identify which items on your “worst” list are not remedied with greater health and balance. (Put a star or doodle by these.) For instance, height won’t change no matter how healthy we get. Put a star by it. If I am short-waisted and have a weak chin, all the weight control in the world won’t give me a longer torso and a stronger jawline. Do not put a star by the things you can fix with surgery—no surgery will ever help you make peace with the body you have been given. Even with a boob job, there will be other traits you despair over.

Universally, we easily identify flaws but we are thoroughly unaccustomed to acknowledging attributes. Was your design a mistake? If you believe in God you know, “He don’t make no junk.” So, what could possibly make us hold ourselves up to a fantasy standard that is unachievable (height, torso, chin) and therefore, by definition, inadequate?

The answer is gratitude. When I criticize myself I just plain forget to lose myself in gratitude. It is easier to knock my skinny lips and wide hips than it is to feel grateful for those hips ability to safely birth my glorious children. When I grumble about my thin hair I forget I got it from my beloved Grandma—no thin hair also means no Grandma. It is easier to hate my love handles than to recognize I go to bed without hunger. In India millions of orphaned street children live with hunger in crushing poverty and desperation, day-in-day-out, yet my compassion for those in need stops when all I can focus on is my own jelly belly. Gratitude is the answer. Gratitude is also the paradigm out of which true harmony with my body is achieved. I cannot properly “hear” my body’s messages if I am engaged in self-criticism, and it is by connecting to my body in a healthy way that I get prompts of what to eat and when to stop eating. Psychological warfare with myself won’t help me become permanently thin and healthy. Gratitude is the foundation for thinking thin.

For all those items above marked with a star or doodle, make peace with each one of them by identifying how they are a blessing in your life. Say aloud the following sentence:

Without (insert feature here) I would __________________________________________.

Personally, I am grateful for my muscular thighs. They weren’t designed for modeling skinny jeans but they were endowed with the strength to hike Angel’s Landing at Zion’s National Park with my children. My German thighs can dig dirt and squat in the yard, allowing me to grow herbs, vegetables, and flowers. My legs can dance West Coast Swing all night long and can do endless squats in a Zumba class. My thighs power big jumps in volleyball and help me lift heavy bags of flour and sugar for baking. I can waterski and snow ski without injury or exhaustion. On this lap I held all three of my babies. Most important, I can walk. I can run. How fantastic! These are thighs worthy of my gratitude. Never again will I disrespect my design by imagining I need legs different than the ones I have.

Mind-Body Bridging

Mind-body Bridging is more than just practicing “mindfulness”.  It is “re-connecting” to one’s Source of power, goodness, healing and well-being. It is a new paradigm in living life at its best accessing our innate ability to solve problems and crisis proof one’s life.  In this body-mind state, one is essentially stress free, awareness is second nature and when things happen—as they always do—the ability to handle it is a natural response.  In this introductory class, you will get a “taste” of this life changing experiential method and way of living.

Come see Carol Ann Kent at the Transformation Station of Salt Lake City on Wednesday, August 3; 7:00pm-8:30pm.  Cost is $5-20 Love Offering.

Entrapment VS Empowerment

First let’s define what these words mean:

Entrapment: to bring unawares into difficulty or danger

Empowerment: to give power or authority to; to enable or permit


Do these definitions ring true for you?  Why, or why not?  What is the reality of your relationships and are you entrapping or empowering those you are close to be they friends, family or co-workers?

Who is benefitting in your relationships?  Do you work from a point of reference of win=win or is it a yes for you but no for the other person you are connecting with? How can you tell whether your are entrapping a person so you can blame them for your perceived problems or rather you are empowering the other person so they can grow and do what they need to do, regardless if it benefits you or not.

Come learn how I can help you to figure out what your next step is to create healthy relationships in your life.  This will be a fun, interactive class so be prepared to speak up and be prepared to be taken on the ride of your life.

This class will be taught as part of the Transformation Station of SLC’s Month of Momentum.  All classes are $5-20 love donation.  This class will be offered Monday, July 25th from 7pm-8:30pm.

The Heart of Power / The Power of the Heart

The Heart of Power / The Power of the Heart

A Somatic Approach to Embodied Compassion with Carol Lessinger

Friday, July 22nd 7:00 – 8:30pm


Somatically, compassion is located in the heart and power is expressed through the pelvis. Powerful compassion and compassionate power depend on the connection of heart and pelvis; areas we tend to disconnect through shallow breathing, uncomfortable movement patterns, tightened muscles and unconscious belief systems about what we permit.


What we experience as tightness is often associated with inner messages or beliefs that are simultaneously opposite to each other. For instance, our expression of power may be constrained because of its confusion with force and brutality, yet our power’s true nature desires expression to manifest our life purpose.


People who’ve worked with Carol have experienced improved posture, better alignment, less pain, freer movement in daily activities, and a deeper sense of serenity while meditating. In this class, there will be an introduction to what you and your world would be like if harsh self judgement is replaced with deep self compassion and if your felt sense of power is connected to your heart.


We will doing a gentle Awareness Through Movement® sequence either sitting or lying on floor.   Please wear loose clothing.  Jeans are not recommended. Layered clothing is recommended for your comfort. Please bring your curiosity and sense of humor.


Carol Lessinger has developed a way of working through her own personal exploration and over 30 years experience and as a movement teacher and healer. She’s a certified Feldenkrais Teacher who studied directly with Moshe Feldenkrais. She’s trained students in Cortical Field Reeducation,® and is a workshop presenter at Esalen Institute in CA. Her passion is to help people feel the role that movement awareness has in the expression of personal health at every level of consciousness.
