2011 Whole Health Expo In Northampton, MA

This past Saturday I spent the whole of my day at another excellent Whole Health Expo, which utilizes the facilities of the Clarion Hotel in Northampton, Massachusetts for a glorious weekend. I always look forward to this event, because for very little cash outlay, I get to go to workshops of my choosing all day long.

This time, as in last year, I chose to spend a little extra $ and signed up for a "Practical Mediumship" workshop given by Gary McKinstry. I first saw Gary at last spring's Expo in the same location, where he was doing platform/gallery-style psychic mediumship readings for people in the audience (see past post: The Spring '10 Whole Health Expo; Gary McKinstry -...). This time 'round, he gave a group of us good tips on giving readings ourselves. I really appreciate Gary's always-ethical approach and his honesty on how occasionally he asks his wife and himself just WHY is he in this profession...LOL! After all, choosing to give readings is hardly the easiest way to make a living. Fulfilling: yes; a bed of roses: no. I will admit that I was a tad disappointed that his presentation was cut 15 minutes short and that no "demonstration" was given as promised, as was listed in Gary's full-page ad in the Spring issue of Many Hands Magazine. Still, I'm glad I took the workshop, as I came away with much to ponder and several good suggestions to help my own giving of readings, all shared with Gary's ever-present sense of humor and generous offering of mediumship techniques.

Here's the classes I took on Saturday, April 16, 2011 (each workshop was 45 minutes long, except for Gary McKinstry's, which lasted an hour and a half):
I could say really good things about all of the workshops I took, but I'd like to talk specifically about two of them, because they both proved to be very powerful for me on a personal level.

I loved Mary Grace's workshop on love. In fact, the only thing I purchased beyond my tickets at the Expo was her book, "The Wounded Chalice." Mary is a practicing Catholic who is very open-minded and sincere in all that she IS. She channels readings from Mother Mary, and believe me, I can relate because the Madonna has come during quite a few of my energy work/healing sessions. I found Mary Grace to be warm, loving, and a very interesting speaker, conveying the oh-so-important message about, "...honoring the Divinity of the Womb, the instrument fashioned by God to procreate human beings on this planet." When I was purchasing her book at her booth, Mary Grace and I had a nice chat and I immediately felt very comfortable with her and enjoyed our wonderful, shared moment together. On the back of Mary Grace's book, she writes, "Follow Mary Grace along her path as she finds her voice and courage after feeling dominated by the patriarchy of our society. It is time for all women to honor their femininity and role on this planet Earth. Women are born healers who must begin by healing themselves. Depression is rampant among the nurturers of life becasue women are not aware of their special gifts."

The other class that hit home personally was that of Dr. Marc Grossman, O.D., L.Ac.. For the first time in my life I was in the presence of a holistic eye doctor who looked above and beyond giving yet another new prescription for vision that was getting ever worse from visit to visit. I knew I was in the right place when I heard that his research has been on depth perception issues, something I've been dealing with ALL of my life. In the 45 minutes of the workshop, which was packed with participants btw, I knew he couldn't focus on just depth perception because folks had come with concerns about macular degeneration, glaucoma, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and much more. BUT, among many other things, we did an eye exercise where one was supposed to see something...a hotdog shape, to be exact...that I wasn't seeing. Yep, that would be because of my depth perception problem...a problem which keeps me from being able to drive, being able to go down an escalator because I can't see where to step (especially if it's going fast), being able to get down stairs easily (at the very least, I must go slow and feel more comfortable when I'm able to hold on to a railing), and much more. Well, after the eye care workshop, rather than going to another of the workshops I'd been thinking of attending, I went to Dr. Grossman's booth. I found out about a series of books, many now oop but available on Amazon, that he had written that may be of help to me. When I got home, I immediately ordered a copy of one of the books in this series, "Beyond 3D: Improve Your Vision with Magic Eye." Also, over the course of the next few days after the Expo I did more digging on Google. I found this: Irlen Syndrome. When I showed Chris a list of the symptoms regarding spatial awareness and depth perception, he was as astounded as I was. I have EVERY SINGLE SYMPTOM on that list. Sooo, Chris told me to order the books available dealing with this syndrome. For the first time in my life I'm happy to know that what I have dealt with over the years has a name and can be researched. That, in and of itself, is a relief.

To say my visit to the Whole Health Expo was a resounding success would be an understatement. Well worth the $10 admission, eh?!!!
