I’ve begun researching Parkinson’s Disease, and would welcome any input from you - what it’s like to have this diagnosis, what the most distressing aspects are, what alleviates the symptoms, etc etc..
Greetings, everyone.

I’ve begun my heavy duty research on Parkinson’s Disease, and I would welcome any input from you – what it’s like to have this diagnosis, what the most distressing aspects of it are, what sorts of things you’ve found alleviate the symptoms, etc etc. I’d love to hear from family caregivers and health care providers as well. Thanks much, as usual.

I also have several new bins of CDs, videos, and DVD’s to review for our next catalog. As you’ve probably noticed from the Spring/Summer 2005 catalog, we’re expanding our "Media as Medicine" offerings considerably, continuing to find new resources and gifted practitioners from all over the globe. It takes me quite a while to go through these items, but eventually I do get to them. So stay tuned.

And in the meantime, you can check out our newest resources to see what we’ve been picking. Some of the items that have been flying off the shelves of our warehouse in Akron:
Gael Chiarella’s A.M. and P.M. Meditations ;
Carol Ginandes’ Rapid Recovery from Injury ;
Lynne Newman’s Song of the Soul;
Kate Hunter Kelley’s The Living Dream and
Guided Imagery for the Three Stages of Healing Trauma: Nine Meditations for PTSD by yours truly.

Our electronic Help Wanted ad yielded an amazing outpouring of impressive C.V.’s, which our management team is pouring over now. You can still submit yours, because just having this array of talent spread out on paper before them is giving us all sorts of ideas. So, for those of you who missed it, here is the ad:

As you probably already know, Health Journeys has an unusual track record for getting guided imagery into mainstream institutions - hospitals, mental health centers, insurance companies, EAPs, HMO’s, professional associations, client advocacy organizations, prisons and health spas. We’ve also managed to get over a half-dozen pharmaceutical companies to give away hundreds of thousands of our audios free, as a premium, to providers and patients. And we want to do more.

So we’re looking for people with a background in either health, social work, psychology, nursing or wellness, with a talent for sales, creative marketing and program development. We’re looking for a certain entrepreneurial pizzazz, and an understanding of what we’re about, what guided imagery can do for people. We want people who have a desire to make a difference and do some good, who can get their drive behind the dual mission of this company - doing well while doing good (that means helping people while NOT going broke).

So if you’re sick of the constraints inherent in working in a large organization or corporation and want some free reign to deploy your knack for creative collaboration and inspired partnerships with other professionals and institutions, please email us your resume at This email address is being protected from spambots.

OK, that’s it for now. Take care and be well.

P.S. Oh, I found my swans. They were carrying on behind a big clump of bullrushes, barely able to keep their feathers off each other. I don’t know if this means they’ve already had their babies or they’re just getting started, but I suspect, given this honeymoon-like behavior, it’s the latter.
