Kelly McGonigal: How to make stress your friend

Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat.

But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case.

Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

Gabor Mate – ADHD, Bullying, and the Destruction of American Childhood

Part 1


A spike in diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other mental disorders has fueled an unprecedented reliance on pharmaceutical medications to treat children, with long-term effects that remain unknown.

Canadian physician and best-selling author, Dr. Gabor Maté argues that these responses are treating surface symptoms as causes while ignoring deeper roots.

He says children are in fact reacting to the broader collapse of the nurturing conditions needed for their healthy development.

Faster EFT with Robert Smith

Dear Friend,

Many of us who wish to really help people begin our journey with trying to help someone in our family who has problems or an illness. Or we want to work on ourselves.

We seek healing methods, modalities and tools. Anything that would work to make us feel better. This search often becomes a passion about helping others in the process of our learnings as well. We take courses, get certifications of all kinds and soak up all kinds of philosophies and tools. We go from one course and certification to another because it’s just not quite “IT”. Not quite what we’ve been looking for.

Until now.

Who’s Agenda Are You Living?

Steve Hassan’s talk at NY Ethical Culture Society 10-17-10

The title of the short talk is “Releasing the Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves.”

In the talk Steve Hassan briefly describes how he was rescued from the Moonies in 1976.

In this talk he also describes the BITE Model of Mind Control.

Destructive mind control can be understood in terms of four basic components, which form the acronym BITE:

  • Behavior Control
  • Information Control
  • Thought Control
  • Emotional Control

It is important to understand that destructive mind control can be determined when the overall effect of these four components promotes dependency and obedience to some leader or cause.



The Placebo Effect

Placebos work better for treating ulcers in Germany than anywhere else in Europe, but placebos for hypertension are less effective in the Germany than anywhere else in Europe.

Expensive packaging makes placebos more effective as does the size or color of the pill.

These are just a few of the fascinating facts about placebos in this short film by Daniel Keogh and Luke Harris.

“The Strange Powers of the Placebo Effect” by Daniel Keogh, aka Professor Funk, is an animated rundown of the curious properties of the placebo effect.
