We found this fascinating article on how UCSF is bringing mindfulness and gratitude into the hospital not just for the patients but also for the families, caregivers, and nurses/paid caregivers.
Actress Goldie Hawn’s recent visit to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco highlighted the benefits of mindfulness in patients managing pain and stress.

A Soft Voice In A Noisy World
In case you didn’t know, April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month. Just in time, I am excited to tell you that in the next few weeks an audio book version of my book, A Soft Voice In A Noisy World: A Guide to Dealing and Healing with Parkinson’s Disease will be released for sale on Itunes.com, Audible.com, and Amazon.com. The book is read by Doug Gochman, a very talented voice actor. Listening to the book provides a whole new perspective and reveals even more from reading it. As the author, I had no idea that hearing the words read back to me could be so powerful. Watch for the upcoming sample, soon to be released on www.asoftvoice.com.

We are Reiki Masters who have been students & practitioners of Reiki Jin Kei Do for over 13 years. In 2011, we started our journey as Reiki Masters undergoing a year-long Reiki Mastership program.
Our journey in Reiki has been a wonderful exploration and experience. Since 2008, we’ve been working with the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) to offer free Reiki Level 1 workshops for those living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and their carepartners, caregivers, family members, or friends.
We plan to blog on givereiki.com for anyone who is interested in Reiki for their own personal health and development.
