Acupressure

Create the Change

Posted on Updated on

You may have wondered about the rather unwieldy name for our conference. When we were designing the conference, we were trying to figure out what we wanted to accomplish. What we hope to do is to change our parent culture in which the reality of many energy fields, many beings and many effective practices that can enhance our lives are rejected out of hand. We were thinking how great it would be if our children’s generation lived in a world where it was accepted that people are psychic and you wouldn’t have to hint about it, talk around it, or pretend that it wasn’t real so that you wouldn’t be considered foolish. That’s backwards! How foolish is it to deny evidence‽

We feel that if we can get the world to accept these realities and both benign and useful (yes, some people still feel that anything “occult” must be dangerous!) that they will be available to enhance daily life. How much better off we are when we know the benefits of using herbs for medicinal as well as culinary purposes. Yet there are still people out there who figure that if a remedy doesn’t come in a box, it “can’t work”.

There are people who scoff at “water witching”, yet many people quietly have a dowser locate their well. The American Dowsing Society has groups that provide this service in third world countries, and their experiences show how well it works.

I know that I use dowsing nearly daily to find lost objects around the house. Our family uses crystals for healing, as well as homeopathy, acupressure and aromatherapy. All of these things are said by critics to be useless, and even harmful if they prevent people from going to “established” practitioners. If they weren’t working, of course we’d go to someone who could help.

But we need to change the story- the dialogue- how people talk about the unknown. At this point anything paranormal in film is still lumped into the Horror genre. As you may have noticed in the last paragraph, much of what I use these ‘supernatural’ techniques for is practical, finding lost objects or healing faster. The world would simply be easier to navigate if we didn’t deny an entire section of available human abilities. So when thinking about the future, think about a world where there is no resistance, no denial, no pretense that magick isn’t real. The world is changing, we just want to make it better.

Speaker Spotlight: Catherine Kane

Posted on Updated on

 

catherine du feyThis delightful lady is Catherine Kane, “small medium at large”, who has probably done more classes at CTCW  than anyone else. (To see the full list, go to Catherine Kane’s page.)

She is an amazing palmist, an empath, a psychic, and has become a popular author with her accessible and useful books such as Adventures in Palmistry and The Practical Empath.

This year at Changing Times-Changing Worlds Catherine will be presenting bringing back a Touch of Acupressure, a workshop she’s been giving Sunday mornings for years- showing you how acupressure can take care of those aches from sleeping in a strange bed, or being on your feet or sitting in hard chairs, migraines, flaggin energy, sinus issues from breathing hotel air, and a host of other unwanted baggage that seems to come bundled with the good stuff that we come to the con to get. She’ll also be teaching Kaizen: Baby Steps to Work Wonders, a way to tackle intimidatingly large issues by taking tiny steps toward success. We’ve also asked her to bring back her popular Practical Empath because empaths appreciate learning the techniques she’s discovered to make what can feel like a curse into the blessing it can be.catherine du fay

Cathy is also an incredibly talented palmist, and reader of I Ching (and other techniques). If you can’t wait to meet her (or see her again) you can find her and Starwolf on weekends at the Connecticut Rennaissance Faire through the end of October, or soak up her wisdom and wit at her blog Foresight Your Psychic.
