There’s been quite a lot of talk about this year, 2012, and how it has powerful potential for bringing transformation into our lives. With this in mind I look to how I am noticing in my practice that some of my clients, who I have known for several years, are now making healthy choices to aim for a more balanced lifestyle.
Many times I have spoken to my clients about the detriments of sitting for long hours while working at their desk. Unfortunately all to many people become so engrossed in their work that there are no breaks in their prolonged sedentary position.

While walking down the Danforth I came upon two identical sculptures that combined the head and upper body of a lion with the tail of a fish. This brought to mind the alchemy of bringing polar opposites together to forge the inner gold of our highest Self. The moment felt synchronous as I had just decided to name my work Synergy Healing.
