Low Level Laser Therapy
Laser is an acronym; Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation. The word ‘radiation’ scares many people – but that is just what the sun does! It irradiates the earth – and us. Light has been used for centuries to treat specific conditions, and it is no accident that we feel ’better’ on a sunny day. However, the light from the sun is random light whilst laser light is directed light.

"In the artist of all kinds one can detect an inherent dilemma which belongs to the co-existence of two trends; the urgent need to communicate and the still more urgent need not to be found."

Before you even begin your meditation practice, you probably have some expectations about what’s going to happen or some beliefs about what should be happening. And some of those expectations and beliefs might not be realistic or helpful.

The Last Ice Merchant
Kintsugi: The Art of Broken Pieces
Once a week for over 50 years, Baltazar Uscher Tenesaca has made the perilous 2 day journey to Mount Chimborazo, to harvest ice. Baltazar was 15 years old when he first learned this trade alongside teams of ice merchants who earned their living by harvesting and selling the mineral rich glacial ice from the highest altitudes of Ecuador's tallest mountain. Now he works alone. The low wage combined with technological progress has made the ice merchant obsolete. This beautifully made film tells the story of a man who was raised on the ice and although his work is hard, dangerous and poorly paid, he alone continues the traditions of his ancestors. Featuring the rich and stunning landscape of Ecuador, this film displays the innovation and skill of a time-honored craft while teaching us that the fruit of ones labor is in the work.
Join third generation craftsman Shimode Muneaki on a brief introduction to kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of mending broken objects. Traditionally, lacquer is used to reconnect shattered pieces of pottery and gold leaf is applied along the repaired fault-lines to accentuate and celebrate the fissure, rather than to hide it. Watch as Shimode and his colleague, Sato Takahiko, transform everyday ceramics that had little aesthetic value when they were new into meaningful works of art after they had been broken. The moment in time when something has been shattered is permanently captured by the painstaking labours of a craftsman in building up the layers of lacquer to repair a piece. It is this reference to the now that recalls a lack of attachment to anything, but rather, being present in the moment, something constantly available to all, but particularly so when we drop a piece of china.
