if you or anyone you know are suffering from depression, s.a.d. or any stress related illness or experiencing stress from a physical, emotional, mental, addiction, abuse or other issue, Nira at the Sangam Yoga Room is offering 2+ hours of a healing ceremony - Praying with Fire - an ancient Ayurvedic Pranic Bio-energetic healing practice which Nira was trained in by her Guru in India and supplemented with elements of her own mantra chanting practice learned by her Ashram life. (somewhat similar to a Tibetan Chod for Healing where participants rest on the floor padded with mats and blankets and can even sleep thru it)
♥ ring or txt Nira 086-841-7159 more details must be given for participants - booking is required. ♥ 21 euro suggested donation - THIS WOULD BE A FANTASTIC GIFT FOR A LOVED ONE or YOURSELF. ♥ by donation or barter to the Sangam Community Yoga Room whatever you are able.
regardless of one's religious affiliation or non-affiliation this is pranic healing by mantra, tantra and fire that can be permanent or long lasting, it can trigger a full recovery and supports any medical treatments. follow up support is also offered. this is a passive participatory ceremony, the participants must be open and agreeable to healing in order to recieve it.
remote healing is possible. ask for details. this is not to replace medical attention but goes a long way to reduce its need and supports it.

Here is yet another Alert regarding Health care products:
In todays growing skin care market it is presumed that all personal care and skin care products aresafe !Unfortunately that is not the case as there are many thousands of unverified and untestedingredients being used in the industry !The exact figure is to be established but of the ones we know they number 68,000 and counting.In this brief awarness meeting we hope to help you better understand the formulation hierachy andhow to select products that are both safe and beneficial.No1 Ultra Premium The best is Swiss formulation due to its rigid testing procedures on ingredients etc.No2 French formulation the next best formulations.No3 American formulation this is the standard of the shelf formulations used by Johnson& Johnson,Unilever, and all the big Multinational companies.
The ingredients mentioned have been found ( documented in case studies andresearch to have adverse affects on the imune system, endocrine , or neurological systems as well ascauses of precursers to cancer and many other side affects.Some of the ingredients have many different scientific / pharmaseutical names or titles that mayhelp to confuse those reading the labels.The following is a brief list of those ingredients to be aware of when choosing products that you areconsidering putting on your skin.This especially important as the skin is the largest organ of the body and any product applied isabsorbed into the bloodstream within the region of 27 secs . So they should be treated in the samemanner as if you were eating them !!THESE ADDITIVES ARE OFFICIALLY LISTED AS HARMFUL(Please note many of these ingredients may be listed in Latin e.g. Parrafin= ParrafiniumBenzene,Lanolin,Parabens,* Cause hormone effects example : ( imbalance )Tallow , ( largely made from roadkill ! ) used to thicken face creams etcParrafin ,*Phthatalates ,Parfum,/ fragrance , ( no requirement to state what ingredients are used ) Heavy fragrance can beused to cover up something else that does not smell nice e.g. Tallow .Lead, ( found in 37 brands of lipstick in usa.many of which are on sale here )Mineral Oil and Petrolatum / Petrolium Products *Proplene Glycol
Sodium Fluoride / Flurocidic acid ( Banned everywhere else in Europe in water supplies)Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)Titanium Dioxide (MSDS)Ethoxylates/PEGDIETHANOLAMINE (cocoamide DEA)Diethanolamine or Triethanolamine (DEA or TEA)FormaldehydeSodium fluoride ( in toothpaste etc )HydroquinoneTalcTriclosan ( generally in liquid hand soaps ) certain types of antibacterial liquid soaps also containvery dubious ingredients.Halogenated salicylanilides (di-, tri-, metabromsalan and tetrachlorosalicylanilide). These are prohibited incosmetic productsHexachlorophene. Because of its toxic effect and ability to penetrate human skin, hexachlorophene (HCP) may be usedonly when an alternative preservative has not been shown to be as effective. The HCP concentration of the cosmeticmay not exceed 0.1 percent. HCP may not be used in cosmetics that in normal use may be applied to mucousmembranes, such as the lips [21 CFR 250.250].Bithionol. The use of bithionol is prohibited because it may cause photo-contact sensitization (21 CFR 700.11).Methylene chloride. The use of this substance in cosmetic products is prohibited because of its animal carcinogenicityand likely hazard to human health (21 CFR 700.19).Why understanding skin care ingredients is important?**Aside from general and somewhat impractical concept that one should know everything she / he ingests or applies to her / his body, there are specific reasons why the understanding of skin care ingredients is useful. In essence, a number of factorsdetermine whether a topical skin care product has an antiaging effect:· Do any of the ingredients have significant capacity to stimulate any aspects of skin regeneration, remodeling orrenewal (e.g. collagen synthesis or cell turnover). In other words, are any of the ingredients active?· Are active ingredients present in sufficient amounts and are they stable in the chemical environment of thatparticular formula? In other words, do active ingredients stay active during the typical shelf-life or do theydegrade by reacting with air or other ingredients?· Does the product's formula allow active ingredients to penetrate the skin well enough to be effective?· Do any of the inactive ingredients interfere with the effect of the active ones? Do they have the potential toharm the skin, e. g. by causing allergic reactions, irritating or dehydrating the skin, clogging pores, etc.An optimal skin care product should contain one or more active ingredients in an effective concentration. Its inactiveingredients should not interfere with the active ones and, whenever required, should provide safe and adequatepreservation, stabilization and delivery into the skin. Also, all ingredients should lack significant potential to cause skin damage.Unfortunately, it is not an easy task to fulfill all these conditions cost-effectively, in an easy-to-use formula with a long shelf-life. As a result, many (if not most) skin care products on the market come short of these requirements. To find a product that fits or at least comes close to this standard, it helps to have some understanding of the ingredient list. **With no required safety testing, cosmetics companies can use almost any chemical they want,( except where banned in the EU) regardless of risks
So it is necessary for us all to educate ourselves.
Please Read the labels before you buy !!
Note : Beware of products which have another ingredient label over the original ! I have noticed one product that stated it was ''Paraben free'' only to find that when i removed the sticker it listed Parabens in the ingredients !
