Shema Kolainu Hosts Workshop Featuring Dalia Zwick, PT, PhD

Dalia Zwick Presents Therapeutic Positioning Workshop

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — NEW YORK, NY–(EIN Presswire – February 28, 2018) – Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices hosted a free autism workshop at Touro College in New York City on Tuesday, February 27th. Acclaimed Physical Therapy Specialist, Dalia Zwick, PhD, presented a therapeutic approach to the posture and gait issues in individuals with ASD, Autism Spectrum Disorder. The room was filled with Physical Therapists, parents of autistic children, Special Education teachers, Early Intervention Specialists and other healthcare professionals.

This workshop focused on proper body alignment and physical positioning for children with Autism but was also very informative on general posture imbalances and the importance of correcting them. Most of the time, we aren’t aware of our slouching but over time it has an adverse affect. She states, “by the age of five, if something is being repeated, the body remembers it and becomes very difficult to correct”.

Her unique specialty was derived from her yoga practice as well as taking on an interest in sketching and animation to better understand correct body posturing whether it’s sitting, standing, walking, or even sleeping. The group participated in a few exercises to experience imbalanced strain, realignment and proper body positioning.

Dr. Zwick developed using parallel bars in her practice to help individuals feel how to stand correctly and comfortably aligned. Another interesting point she made was that kids with ASD don’t ever get a chance to relax if their body isn’t supported and comfortable. Relaxation is extremely important for overall health and particularly necessary in order for children to be alert and engaged in their learning environment.

The Rev. Jay Lawlor “The Least of These” sermon for Christ the King 2017 – St. John’s Episcopal Church, Speedway, IN

The Rev. Jay Lawlor preached on Christ the King Sunday 2017 at Saint John's Episcopal Church in Speedway, IN.

The concept of reconciliation is primarily relational and its being relational is rooted in conversion, forgiveness and making whole that which is broken.”

— The Rev. Jay Lawlor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rev. Jay Lawlor delivered a sermon titled “The Least of These” for Christ the King, November 26, 2017 at St. John’s Episcopal Church – Speedway, IN. The Gospel reading for the day was Matthew 25:31-46.

How most of consume our news has changed dramatically over the years. But my parents still have the Boston Globe newspaper delivered to their house every day. In fact, they are one of the only houses in their neighborhood still receiving daily delivery of the Globe. While it is a leading newspaper with a long history, my dad will tell you that the primary reason my parents still receive the Globe in printed form is for the comics.

My dad loves the funny pages. He always has. One of my enduring memories of growing up was my dad sitting at the kitchen table, eating breakfast, and reading the comics page in the newspaper before leaving for work. In fact, no matter where you were in the house, you knew when my dad was reading the comics – his laughter would filter throughout the house.

But beyond the comics was the news of the day. And that news often reported what’s wrong with the world. Reporting which often reflects the worst aspects of human nature. You don’t need to look very far to find stories of injustice.

Today we have numerous ways to have our news delivered to us. Print media from newspapers and news magazines, the digital, online versions of those news organizations, network television, cable news channels, and even social media. We live in a world with a 24/7 news cycle. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming.

The news is important. A free press is crucial to an informed citizenry and democracy. We need to be informed of what is going on in our world. We need to know of injustice to inform our responses as people of faith called to proclaim and work for God’s justice in the world. One such area of injustice is persistent inequality both here and around the world.

The exact type of injustice Jesus calls us to transform with God’s justice. This is important because it matters what people of faith say. It matters even more what people of faith DO…to be reconciled to God and each other. And reconciliation requires a change of attitude in relationship with God and others. The concept of reconciliation is primarily relational and its being relational is rooted in conversion, forgiveness and making whole that which is broken. […]

The Rev. Jay Lawlor “Love Came Down at Christmas” Message for 1 Christmas, December 31, 2017 St. John’s Episcopal Church

Nativity scene. Image: Creative Commons License.

The Rev. Jay Lawlor was at St. John's Episcopal Church, Speedway for the First Sunday After Christmas 2017 to conclude his time as guest priest in the parish.

From the very beginning of Jesus’ life, God sets the example by which compassion becomes Incarnate.”

— The Rev. Jay Lawlor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rev. Jay Lawlor preached “Love Came Down at Christmas” on December 31,2017 as his final sermon as visiting priest at Saint John's Episcopal Church in Speedway, IN.

There are many famous popular Christmas songs and well known Christmas hymns. I’m not going to sing any of them for you, but I invite you to listen the the words from the following hymn:

“Love came down at Christmas, love all lovely, love divine; love was born at Christmas: star and angels gave the sign. Worship we the Godhead, love incarnate, love divine; worship we our Jesus, but where with for the sacred sign? Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine, love to God and neighbor, love for plea and gift and sign.”

These words are from the hymn “Love came down at Christmas,” by Christina Rossetti. While this hymn is not as well known as others, such as Silent Night, O Little Town of Bethlehem, or Away in a Manager, I find the lyrics to be a powerful and eloquent reminder of the tremendous miracle of this season.

Just stop and ponder for a moment, God loving the world so much that God chose to come and dwell among us in human flesh: love all lovely, love divine. In Jesus was made manifest the perfect love of God so that the world would know and share in God’s love. This is what the Incarnation is all about: LOVE. Lennon and McCartney were right when they penned “All you need is love.”

Without God’s love for us, there would be no need for Jesus’ birth. It is out of unconditional love for the human condition which God takes on human flesh. Love be yours and love be mine, love to God and neighbor, love for plea and gift and sign. Through our baptisms we enter into the miracle of the Incarnation as witnesses to God’s love for the world.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love “Jingle Bells” and Santa Claus as much as the next person – even if Santa is somewhat removed from the original story of St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra – a sermon for another time. But Christmas still offers Christians an opportunity to accept the invitation to receive God’s love, to experience the miracle of Jesus’ birth, and then share the outpouring of God’s compassion for God’s people and creation. Jesus is the Light of the World.

God being born in Jesus – to free us – is the most perfect act of self-giving love and sacrifice that the world will ever know. It is God’s heart so overflowing with love for God’s creation that it is love that cannot be contained – even, or especially, in face of a creation that has been trapped in rebellion against God and in conflict with itself. And God chooses to express this outpouring of love in a most peculiar way.

Jesus – God Incarnate – enters the world not in power, wealth and prestige; and without pomp, circumstance and fanfare; but in complete and utter vulnerability, humility and poverty. There is no one more vulnerable than a newborn infant who is birthed homeless, to a peasant couple in a remote town where they are refugees. The best that Mary and Joseph can do is to place Jesus in the animals’ feeding trough in the midst the filth and stench of a stable. Jesus’ entry into the world was rough . . . even by first-century standards.

From the very beginning of Jesus’ life, God sets the example by which compassion becomes Incarnate. God’s love is for ALL, no exceptions, and, nonetheless, it is to the lost and the least that Jesus most closely associates – and for whom God’s compassion is most clearly revealed. We only need to look to Jesus’ humble birth for clear evidence of this.

And who among us, at one time or another, has not been lost or felt least? And who among us has not encountered another soul that is lost or that has been beaten down by the tempests of life? And who among us has not seen, if we allow our gaze to pass their way, those suffering in poverty in a world of plenty? It is in humility that God comes in Jesus and it is to the humble that God first reveals the good news of Jesus’ birth. […]

Exploring Ibogaine Treatment From the Paradise Island Setting of the Avante Institute

iboga plant

NASSAU, NASSAU, BAHAMAS, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ibogaine has long been understood to provide therapeutic effects, most notably in the elimination of addiction to opiates, alcohol, and other drugs.

Ibogaine occurs naturally in a group of flowering plants commonly known as the dogbane family. The group includes all manner of plants, from shrubs and trees to herbs, succulents, and vines.

Even before the advent of modern medicine, ibogaine had been recognized for its medicinal properties. Initially documented by French and Belgian explorers to Africa in the 19th century, botanists soon took an interest, first describing the 'Tabernanthe iboga' plant in 1889.

Based in the beautiful Bahamas, The Avante Institute harnesses the natural power of ibogaine to treat addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Home to the world's sixth-longest barrier reef, the coral-based archipelago of the Bahamas is known for its breathtaking scenery, varied wildlife, lush palms, rare orchids, and tropical climate.

Of its ibogaine treatments, the New Providence Island-based institute says, "The Avante Institute offers treatment packages for all manner of substance detoxification including alcohol, opioid medications, heroin, cocaine, methadone and more."

Part of what's being called the "holistic plant movement," The Avante Institute's detox treatment facility is fast becoming one of the most well-respected providers of holistic therapy in the battle against addiction to drugs and alcohol.

A representative for The Avante Institute explains, saying, "Powerful yet gentle holistic plant medicines are the genuine article. They heal people, and they save lives."

They continue, "This is what we've been searching for, and what's desperately needed to attack the modern-day addiction epidemic head-on. Our plant medicine treatments work like no other medicines in the world."

Treatment with ibogaine works by resetting specific transmitters in the brain, while simultaneously rebalancing a number of essential chemicals in the body.

Ibogaine is unique, in that it allows those undergoing treatment to bypass the withdrawal symptoms often associated with drug or alcohol detox, known as post-acute withdrawal symptoms. None of these symptoms—which can include nausea, cramping, tremors, headaches, irritability, chills, and sweats—are typically witnessed with the institute's carefully administered ibogaine treatment regime.

"The advantages which these treatments offer our clients over traditional detox are immeasurable," says the institute.

The Avante Institute has enjoyed excellent rates of success through its ibogaine treatments, with levels of long-term sobriety being "exceptional" according to the Caribbean holistic retreat's records.

Located on two acres of pristine white sand beachfront, the institute boasts a team of compassionate and highly-experienced professionals and addiction specialists. Through intensive entheogenic medicinal treatments, the site enjoys levels of efficacy in drug rehabilitation not found or available in western medicine today.

"We confidently proclaim our detoxification therapies to be among the very finest in the world," says the institute.

The Avante Institute offers a number of withdrawal-free ibogaine treatments from its oceanfront Nassau location, ranging in length from 5-10 days, with an extended care program also available.

The Rev. Jay Lawlor “Look to Jesus” Sermon for 3 Advent 2017 St. John’s Episcopal Church – Speedway, IN

The Rev. Jay Lawlor continued as visiting priest for the Season of Advent 2017 at St. John's Episcopal Church in Speedway, IN.

People shouldn’t listen to us because we, ourselves, have anything to say. Our role, like that of the John the Baptist, is to point the way toward Jesus.”

— The Rev. Jay Lawlor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rev. Jay Lawlor preached a sermon titled “Look to Jesus” for the 3rd Sunday of Advent, December 17, 2017 as visiting priest at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Speedway, IN. The Gospel for the day was John 1:6-8,19-28.

We have again this week a story of John the Baptist. This time as recounted in the Gospel According to John. The gospel’s authorship not to be confused with the Baptizer. The Gospel According to John was written in the late first or early second century in the Eastern Mediterranean by a group of Jewish Christians who had some connection to the Apostle John. At the time of writing the gospel, it is twenty to thirty years following the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and approximately six to seven decades after the death and resurrection of Christ. They are far enough removed from those events as to realize they are living in a new age – an age where the light of the world is already shining.

And in the Gospel According to John they tell of John the Baptist and his purpose: "There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light." (John 1:1-6)

It is almost as if it were a trial and John is the main witness – whose testimony is key. In a way it was. In the Honor-Shame society of First-Century Palestine, John the Baptist came to honor Jesus. John the Baptist had a large following and people were coming to him to be baptized – to be initiated into John’s group. Questions arose as to who John was, and if he could be the Messiah. He wanted to set the record straight – to be clear about who was, and was not, in relation to Jesus. As recorded in the Gospel According to John:

This is the testimony given by John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” He confessed and did not deny it, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” (John 1:19-20)

John the Baptist is perfectly clear that he is not the Messiah. He understood that his mission was to point the way toward the light of the world. A natural follow-up question would be who, then, is the Messiah? What did it mean for John the Baptist to be testifying as a witness to the light of the world?

New Testament scholar and Anglican Bishop, N.T. Wright suggests in his book The Challenge of Jesus that:
"It meant, according to [the Gospel of ] John, that Jesus would be lifted up to draw all people to himself. On the cross Jesus would reveal the true God in action as the lover and savior of the world. […] and because Jesus’ story reached it’s climax on Calvary and with the empty tomb, that we can say: here is the light of the world. The Creator has done what [the Creator] promised. From now on we are living in the new age, the already-begun new world. The light is now shining in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." (N.T. Wright, The Challenge of Jesus, pp. 177-178)

So John the Baptist was pointing the world toward Jesus. He was making ready the world to receive Jesus who is the light shining in the darkness. John the Baptist was telling those who questioned him that he is not the one they should be looking at. They were to look to Jesus. It is Jesus who is the Messiah.

We should hear John the Baptist speaking those same words to us as Christians today. It isn’t about us. People shouldn’t listen to us because we, ourselves, have anything to say. Our role, like that of the John the Baptist, is to point the way toward Jesus. […]

The Rev. Jay Lawlor “Awaken to God” sermon for the 23rd Sunday After Pentecost St. John’s, Speedway, IN

The Rev. Jay Lawlor continued as visiting priest at St. John's Episcopal Church in Speedway, IN on Nov. 12, 2017.

The common thread throughout all of Jesus’ teachings is that he has come to offer life to all according to God’s vision for the world.”

— The Rev. Jay Lawlor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rev. Jay Lawlor preached a sermon on the parable of the bridesmaids from Matthew's Gospel (Matthew 25:1-13) as an invitation to "Awaken to God" to "to lead us into right relationship with God and our neighbor."

Gospel parables can be tricky. There can be a tendency to read them as doctrine or allegories in which we assign certain roles. Who are the wise bridesmaids? And who are the fools? But can that cause us to get bogged down? Is it possible we could miss the point Jesus is trying to make?

The parables are instructive to us as Christians because Jesus is offering us teachings on how to live as disciples. Our brains are wired for stories/narrative and visuals. So Jesus told stories. He presented narratives, and created visuals for people to picture in their minds.

In today’s parable from Matthew, Jesus paints a picture of ten bridesmaids with their lamps. Five who brought extra oil with them to keep the lamps burning, five who did not. Even if we had never read this passage before, we can see where this is going. At some point, the lamp oil is going to become a factor. We just know it. And it does.

The five bridesmaids who brought extra oil are ready to go with the bridegroom when he arrives. They were prepared. They were ready when awakened. And what does Jesus say to the five bridesmaids who did not have enough oil – who had to go a buy more? “Keep awake!” Keep awake.

This parable is less about who were wise and who were foolish, and more about how we are all to live as disciples of Jesus. It isn’t particularly instructive to tease out who might be wise and who might be foolish. For such effort distracts us from Jesus’ concluding message: Keep awake. Jesus wants us all to awaken to God.

Throughout scripture God calls God’s people into relationship with God and others to live according to God’s principles; to work for God’s justice, peace, and righteousness. The common thread throughout all of Jesus’ teachings is that he has come to offer life to all according to God’s vision for the world. As followers of Jesus we are to awaken to God’s presence in our lives. As followers of Jesus we are to awaken to God’s mission for us. […]

The Rev. Jay Lawlor “How Do We Hear the Parable of the Talents?” St. John’s Episcopal Church, Speedway, IN

The Rev. Jay Lawlor discussed the parable of the talents in sermon at St. John's Episcopal Church in Speedway, IN on Nov. 19,2017.

It is a parable about the way things often were in Jesus’ day, rather than the way things ought to be.”

— The Rev. Jay Lawlor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rev. Jay Lawlor discussed the context of the understanding of Rich and Poor in Jesus' day and how that may help us better understand the Parable of the Talents from Matthew 25:14-30.

The talents in the parable from Matthew are often used in our modern English language context and preached as a sermon on stewardship – it is that time of year in many congregations. It is also, if I’m being honest, the easier place to go for the preacher. There is less risk in talking about talents as our gifts from God and how we are to faithfully give back a portion in service to God.

While we are to give back a portion of our gifts to God – there are plenty of other examples of this in scripture. Today, I would like to invite us to consider this parable as it was most likely heard by its first hearers in Jesus’ day. We tend to read scripture – especially Jesus’ parables – through our current cultural context and norms rather than first understanding them in the context of the first century Roman Palestine of Jesus’ day. The context in which Jesus told the story.

But we miss some very big – and important – points Jesus is making if we rush to the place of our modern context. Our conversation needs to take a different direction if we are to be honest with the parable in both its original context, and application for Christians today.

The first thing to notice is that Jesus makes no mention of the scene he describes as being an allegory about the kingdom of God, like so many of his other parables. Absent is the “Kingdom of God is like…” which Jesus uses when he wants to tell us how his disciples are to be in the world. What we have is a story about a man going on a journey and leaving his property in the care of his slaves.

The property here are five talents, two talents, and one talent. A talent in the parable was the largest unit of currency in Jesus’ day, a single talent estimated to be worth about fifteen years’ wages for a day laborer. Needless to say, the man in the story is rich. Very rich.

The first two slaves go off and double the money that had been given to them. The third slave buries the one talent for safekeeping, so as not to risk losing it. Our modern contextual, capitalist, lens often interprets this parable as the first two slaves being faithful to what had been entrusted to them, and the third slave as lazy for not having produced a return on investment. The rich master in the parable certainly sees it this way – rewarding the first two slaves, and punishing the third slave as “wicked and lazy.” He then takes the one talent from him and gives it to the first slave and instructs that the third slave be tossed out as worthless: “As for this worthless slave, throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” (Matthew 25:30 NRSV)

But is this how Jesus sees it? Is this how Jesus told the story? Remember, […]Jesus is not presenting the parable as like the Kingdom of God. It is a parable about the way things often were in Jesus’ day, rather than the way things ought to be.

Mississippi Reading Roadmap

MRR Participants Coahoma County School District

Shows Promising Results

The Mississippi Reading Roadmap is a terrific afterschool partner because they have helped us build afterschool interventions that align with our school assessments and reading instruction”

— Superintendent Xandra Keys

CLARKSDALE, MISSISSIPPI, USA, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Data collected from the 2017 fall semester shows that students in Coahoma County School District who participated in the Mississippi Reading Roadmap (MRR) afterschool program demonstrated significant growth in reading proficiency. Most importantly, improvement in reading proficiency among students was measured on school assessments.

The MRR builds upon the policies established by Governor Phil Bryant to foster early reading achievement. The afterschool program for kindergarten-third grade students launched this fall in Coahoma County School District with 190 students participating.

Based upon the school-administered Coahoma County STAR Assessments, readers in the program are progressing rapidly, achieving improved results as compared to those without the program.

STAR Assessments data, which are used throughout the state, demonstrate that participants in the program exceeded growth expectations. First graders in the MRR program showed an average improvement of 33 percent relative to their peers during the fall semester. Second graders improved by 35 percent, while third graders improved by 26 percent.

"Our district has committed itself to improving early literacy among all of our students," said Coahoma County Schools Superintendent Xandra Keys. "The Mississippi Reading Roadmap is a terrific afterschool partner because they have helped us build afterschool interventions that align with our school assessments and reading instruction."

Since August, the four elementary schools in the Coahoma County district have combined in-school, afterschool and family engagement components to spark the gains documented by the STAR tests. The MRR prescribes a summer program which it says can combat regression and even accelerate growth among developing readers.

"The results produced during the first semester were really impressive," said Andrew Hysell, Executive Director of the MRR. "The data shows the MRR student growth rates actually exceeded STAR's growth expectations in each grade level. Coahoma County Schools' hard work is an essential ingredient to this success."

With the support of the Governor, the MRR began in the Coahoma County School District as a pilot program modeled after a similar initiative in Kansas, where improvements among at-risk students have been documented over the past four school years. The Reading Roadmap serves over 10,000 children in nearly 70 schools across the country.

The MRR is made possible with funding from the Walton Family Foundation and the Mississippi-based Barksdale Institute

Most business owners understand the importance of successful marketing.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many, however, are "not capitalizing on" the possibilities made available to them, or so says Chaitanya Cherukuri.

"Boost your business," says the experienced marketer, "by improving your marketing game."

Texas-based Chaitanya Cherukuri insists that business owners, both locally and further afield, are failing to utilize the opportunities which have been put before them, especially online.

"It's not all about newspaper adverts or distributing leaflets any longer," says Cherukuri.

In fact, he says, it hasn't been about that for the last two decades or more.

"We're living in a digital age, not an analog one," he laments. "Amazon is coming up on its 25th birthday, and still some businesses are relying almost entirely on outdated, traditional marketing methods. To be competitive, in 2018, you need to up your marketing game, especially online."

Chaitanya Cherukuri isn't entirely dismissive of traditional marketing, however. "It has its place," he admits, "but it's not where the money is."

It's with this in mind that Cherukuri plans to host a free lecture on successful marketing, focusing predominantly on online marketing activity.

"I'll show how much more cost effective a smarter, more streamlined approach to marketing can be for businesses of all sizes," he promises of the free lecture. "It'll mostly cover online marketing activity, but I'll touch on a number of offline methods, too."

Chaitanya Cherukuri will cover email marketing, social media marketing, content marketing, and what's known as "pay per click" advertising, through sites like Google and Facebook, he says.

The lecture will also touch on search engine optimization, A/B testing, mobile-focused marketing, and the importance of clear and concise branding, among other topics.

"Marketing is about much more than it used to be," says Cherukuri. "It can be time-consuming, too, so I'll also run through the benefits of automation, which can be a huge help in running a successful marketing campaign when time constraints limit you."

"People should also realize," he goes on, "that it needn't be expensive. It's as much about being creative as it is about spending huge amounts of money."

Cherukuri promises to debunk a number of online marketing myths and simplify the process of building a successful campaign.

"I'll keep it simple," he says. "I want the lecture to appeal to a broad range of business owners, with all levels of understanding. I'll make sure that everyone can follow what's being discussed, and will offer to simplify things if people are struggling to keep up."

Details of Chaitanya Cherukuri's lecture on successful online marketing, which will be offered to all interested parties in the San Marcos area, will be made available soon.
