Event Host


Overview

The trademark process is made up of three stages: clearance, prosecution, and enforcement. While a qualified and experienced trademark attorney is the best bet to deal with these three stages, there are things that every business owner can and should do to protect their trademark. This class will identify tips and tricks for each stage of the trademark process. Clearance: This involves searching to see if the trademark you want to use is free for registration and use. Prosecution: Once a search is conducted and the risks are acceptable to the business owner, it is time to file or prosecute the application. Enforcement: Once you register your trademark, you have to enforce your rights. This is a classic "use it or lose it" situation.

One reason why more new patients aren't coming in is because they don't know about you and how you can help. If you'd like to educate and teach people, online talks are a great way to attract new patients (or telehealth ones) quickly, even if you get nervous or don't know what to say.

Overview

In this course we will: Recap and review the Part One talk as well as the feedback from the “What’s Good is Bad/What’s Bad is Good” exercise. Consider Chuang Tzu’s profound insight on the workings of human cognition. Explore the energy physics behind the 8 Trigrams. Consider the practical applications of these seemingly esoteric concepts in real (messy) life. Here is some positive feedback from our last session: "It is not everyday that you get concrete exercises to aid in mind healing in this way. For me, it has been really transformative. " "I was surprised by the simplicity of your exercise, and have practiced it several times since watching the recording and found it remarkably powerful in helping me get off the rollercoaster of attachment. " "It is so powerful and something that everyone would benefit from doing. The world would be a better place if we all practiced this." "Your teaching is a gem. Thank you."

Self-Compassion: Softening Into Our True Nature

with Thomas Richardson

Recording

from May 15, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

In response to the suffering and trauma that is inherent in life, many of us create defense mechanisms that can harden into deeply conditioned patterns of how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us. To return to our true nature of compassion, wisdom, and love, we must cultivate self-compassion through consciously deciding to soften – softening our physical body, emotions, and minds. As we do so, our innate nature effortlessly arises. This is a talk followed by a guided meditation.

How do energetic imbalances and clinical health problems affect a patient’s capacity to love? What is "false love" and why is it so prevalent in our world?  What happens energetically when we fall in love or fall out of love?  What are the energetic patterns that make up heartsickness?  How does love heal and how can we help those under our care thrive with the capasity to love during stress?

We generally know how herbs work either from Chinese or scientific theory or a combination of both. But why do they work? What in the history of plants, animals, and evolution created the benefits of these healthy little bundles? This lecture will examine these questions, in a mind-opening and scientific (but not overwhelming) approach, by exploring Gaia theory, planetary autopoiesis, DNA, and Plant–Human Coalitions.
