Wilbraham, Massachusetts, USA
Welcome to the July, 2023 Harmony Way Newsletter!
We are in the central part of summer here in New England. Solstice has just passed. The days will become shorter from this point on in the year. However, it's still hot and humid a lot of the time and great weather for being by the water or in the forest, where it's a bit cooler.
The yearly openings for the Virtual Core Shamanic Healing and Counseling Training Program close soon! Applications for this program (more information below) are due by July 1st of each year. Classes run from September through June. This is life-changing work for many people.
Whatever your plans are for July, I hope you enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful plants with
peace and joy in your heart.

This Month's Exercise Demo:
(From: Hannah Uiri)
Trauma, whether it is physical, mental/emotional or spiritual, often gets stuck in the body and causes symptoms later in life. If we move, stretch and gently release that stored trauma, while allowing and processing feelings that arise as we do that, it can have a profound healing effect on the body and mind. This is a wonderful and gentle exercise video about this topic and one that you can do from the comfort of your own home or from
anywhere that you feel safe.
*Always check in with your medical health provider for advice and guidance before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, discussing these with a qualified medical professional prior to trying any workout.

What do you do for mental health self-care? Some people don't do anything. Others take daily steps to maintain their mental health and well-being or to begin or continue their healing journey. Since everyone has some type of trauma, examining our mental health with compassion and taking steps to maintain or improve it, while seeking support and education as necessary, can be highly beneficial to our overall quality of life. This article has many great tips and lots of information about how to care for our mental health.
