August 27 IONS meeting

Boise IONS meets the last Sunday of each month except May and December from 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 6200 N Garrett Street in Garden City.

At the August 27 IONS meeting we will have the opportunity to learn about and practice Qigong, an ancient Chinese mind-body practice similar to Tai Chi. The name means “energy practice.” Physically, it helps reduce stress, rejuvenate your body, and over time can build stamina and vitality. Studies have shown qigong helps speed recovery from illness, strengthens the immune system, restores flexibility, prevents bone loss, as well as reduces anxiety and stress. Mentally, it calms the mind as well as offering a heightened awareness of oneself and one’s connection to one’s surroundings. It is, literally, meditation in motion.

Presenter Michelle Wood has been involved in Chinese Medicine energy practices for 20 years. In 1997, she began practicing qigong, and taught classes through Central Oregon Community College, and private classes. From 2013 – 2015, she served as Editor In Chief of the Yang Sheng (Nurturing Life) E-Magazine dedicated to disease prevention, self-healing, and spiritual cultivation.

You may visit her qigong blog Be Well With Qigong where you will find many fine articles, and information on qi, qigong, and practices.

July 30 IONS Meeting

Dementia is the latest scourge in our country. By age 85, 51% of us are expected to develop some form of dementia!

The good news is we know more now about some of the contributing factors and causes and how we can be pro active in our approach to becoming part of the 49% that avoid it.

Join Dementia Prevention Specialist Victoria Savage RN (Nurse Savage on Your Side) for an information-packed talk entitled, “IS IT POSSIBLE TO AVOID DEMENTIA?”

This comprehensive talk covers not only the nutritional, physical, and supplemental possibilities, but the psychological-mental aspects as well.

Victoria Savage (Nurse Savage on Your Side) is an RN of 26 years whose motto is, and practice focus’s on, “Prevent the Preventable.” As a child of a dementia sufferer, this subject matter is a very personal one for her.

Join us in learning how to take charge of our brain health (which by the way is good for the body as well,) and move forward with greater knowledge and empowerment.

June 25 IONS meeting

Boise IONS meets the last Sunday of each month except May and December from 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 6200 N Garrett Street in Garden City.

 

At the June 25 IONS meeting, Jeannette Weston will discuss: What do eating cookies at the airport and passing the time for a few minutes with an office receptionist tell us about our impact on the people around us in everyday situations? What if we all lived mindfully? What does showing kindness get us, as a society, as a country, as a community, as an individual? Do the ends justify the means? The ends reveal our ambitions. The means reveal our values. Both matter. Our actions and attitudes matter. Our intentions matter. We are all significant. We send invitations to others just by being who, what, and how we are. Actually, just “being” is a lot of what this life is about.

 

Jeannette Weston worked at Hewlett Packard for 14 years, first as a software engineer, then as a manager. Then she managed a team of developers creating training materials, used to train call center workers, until she retired in 2008. Since then, Jeannette has been dabbling with a bit of editing for an author. Over her lifetime, she has done a little self-improvement and some contemplation. Sometimes she shares a tidbit or two she has run across in that process.

Speaking on March 26 is Karen Jean Lowe whose company is name is Simpatico. She teaches Emotional Intelligence. (E.Q.)

We have come to understand that each of us possess the most fascinating territory left mostly unexplored, the human mind. We are all highly emotional beings and yet know very little on how our emotions dictate the quality of our lives. Emotional Intelligence is a skill that allows us to build positive personal and career relationships. It’s a competency that sets you apart from the ordinary and enhances your ability to reach your goals and help others.

We have been facilitating, consulting and teaching Emotional Intelligence from Orlando, Florida to San Diego, California. We deliver public presentations and have taught in prisons, businesses, public schools, civic organizations, and also provide on-line consulting.
