Feng Shui from the Inside Out: On Activating your Invisible Powers for Success & Well-being, with Chikeola Karimou + From the Heart to the Brain: Getting in Sync with the HeartMath Techniques, with Dana Tomasino

We meet monthly to get to know each other and socialize, share a bit about who we are and what we do, and learn from each other. Different members share in depth each time.

The goal of the presentations is to teach each other useful tools to grow ourselves, expand our practices, and add valuable resources for our clients. This group is free and intended to be social and educational, not specifically for marketing and networking. If you have a question of whether your work is a good fit, feel free to reach out.

Feng Shui from the Inside Out: On Activating your Invisible Powers for Success & Well-being, with Chikeola Karimou: Feng Shui is the Art of Living in Harmony with one’s environment for Positive Energy and Success. While it is true that many outer solutions can be applied to many situations to enhance the energy flow, or correct a negative pattern and bring the good our way, Chikeola will be talking about how we can empower ourselves even more if we turn within and activate our Invisible Power, doubling our gains. Chikeola is a new import to Portland from New York City where she lived for seventeen years. In 2007, deciding that she could “not stand” her apartment anymore, she was freed by Feng Shui. She proceeded to become a certified Feng Shui Consultant with the then Hollis Institute NYC. Now Chikeola is combining her knowledge of Feng Shui and decades of Spiritual Studies to empower people to the “aliveness” of their “spaces”. She holds a MA in Art Gallery Management and is a Senior Yoga Teacher. Now residing in Portland, she combines her loves of Feng Shui, art, spirituality, empowerment, yoga and coaching, to help people connect to their Greater Vision, that is their “Soul Vision” and how to make their space a launching platform for their success.

From the Heart to the Brain: Getting in Sync with the HeartMath Techniques, with Dana Tomasino: Many of us may have been taught in school that the brain is the “master commander,” continually issuing one-sided orders to the heart and bodily organs. However, science now informs us that the heart-brain connection is very much an interactive, two-way conversation, with the heart actually sending more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart! What kind of messages are conveyed in these heart signals? How do they affect the brain and body? And how can we learn to consciously use these heart signals to optimize health, well-being and overall function? This presentation will offer an overview of the science of heart-brain communication, with a focus on Heart Coherence — a specific, scientifically measurable state of optimal function characterized by body-wide synchronization and harmony. Learn how positive emotions naturally shift the heart and body into coherence, and learn a simple, powerful HeartMath technique to readily activate this state. View a real-time demonstration of an emotionally-driven shift to heart coherence using HeartMath’s emWave heart rhythm coherence biofeedback system. We will review the diverse health, wellness and behavioral conditions that have significantly benefited from coherence-building practices. We will also discuss how heart coherence-building tools can be used in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities. Learn how health and wellness practitioners can enhance the practitioner-client connection and increase the effectiveness of any treatment modality by learning to generate heart coherence. Dana Tomasino is visiting the Pacific Northwest from the Big Island of Hawaii. Formerly a researcher at the Institute of HeartMath in California for 12 years, she has authored numerous scientific publications on topics such as the psychophysiology of positive emotions, heart-brain communication, heart field energetic interactions, and the heart’s role in intuition and intentionality. Now practicing independently, her work continues to integrate science and spirituality, with a focus on the role of Heart Intelligence and Love in personal and planetary evolution. Dana is a certified 1-on-1 Provider of the HeartMath system of heart-based tools and technology for stress reduction, health enhancement, and emotional development. She also does healing work, combining traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi bodywork with Source Light Radiance, her own unique energy healing modality.
