With January 2013 right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about AB1825 compliance! Since the law was passed in 2005, all California employers with more than 50 employees have been required to conduct 2 hours of sexual harassment prevention training for their supervisors, every other year and 2013 will be the next deadline for compliance. Since I’ve been doing these trainings over the past several years, I’ve noticed some interesting trends:   1.

Talk It Out There is no stress quite like financial stress. Money worries grip our country, as we all know. The grim statistics flood the news and newspapers day in and day out: homes underwater, unemployment in the millions, mortgages being foreclosed, federal government spending out of control, the list just goes on and on. Where the stress hits home is with unpaid bills, dental work that we cannot afford, hospitalizations that will wipe out

The Grand Inquisitor on the Nature of Man by Fyodor Dosteovski For may years, I have had among my books a copy of ‘The Grand Inquisitor’, that I found amid other old books in a delightfully musty used book store.  It is a book that I have read many times over the years because its great theme of the quasi-super-transnational-neo-socialist monolithic government and its unopposed state authorized program of manipulated awareness is both compelling and

The cosmic joke played on the medical profession a few years back resulting from the genome projects failure to produce the amount of cells in the human body as promoted thru the Darwinian/Newtonian era, now shows why you can’t be a victim of your genes any longer.

The meditation practice for men or women are slightly different. Both of the practices are called Jin Zwer (tranquil sitting). About the practice for men, which I had published a book, Tranquil Sitting could serve as the guidance for practice.

The mechanistic worldview of Rene’ Descartes (1596-1650) who reduced the empirical world to subject-object dualism is being supplanted by an integrative worldview. the new integrative worldview not only sees the observable world differently – human beings are seen in a different manner too.  No longer are persons viewed as a mere “Ghost in a Machine”, (Gilbert Ryle, 1900-1976 and Authur Koestler, 1905-1983), they are seen as unitary beings. Yakin Kaufman, M.D. said, ” PNI deals with

Over the years as a pastoral counselor I’ve had to help persons understand that anger and self care are not compatible.  In fact they are opposite and the impact of anger upon one’s life is very destructive. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Ephesian community the following: “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, . . . , be put away from you . . .”  Eph. 5:31 KJV Briefly, the word ‘bitterness’ in the

One of the most powerful assessment instruments used by medical professionals and clinical chaplains is the HOPE Questionnaire.  It is a practical tool that was developed to help patients who stated that spirituality plays an important role in their lives, and “that there is a positive correlation between a patient’s spirituality or religious commitment and health outcomes.” The HOPE instrument addresses the following areas (Am. Fam.Physician 2001;63:81-8.89): H – sources of hope, strength, comfort, meaning, peace,love,

One of the most fascinating documents of ancient clinical wisdom is the Proverbs or Mashal Collection of the Old Testament literature corpus. Scholars have noted the remarkable thematic resemblances between the Proverbs and the Instruction of Amememope (ca. 1300-1075 BC) another book of ancient clinical wisdom. The Proverbs emphasize wisdom as foundational for success in life.  Indeed, the term Proverbs is a transliteration of the Hebrew word Mashal which literally means superior mental action for
