2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
I completed my doctorate in the Bay Area and came north seeking wide open spaces with open minds to match! I love the dynamic, gentle beauty of Ashland. It seems the hills, clouds, and vegetation are engaged in a constant conversation.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
I help build healthy, lasting bonds between people...whether they are members of a family or a community. I love helping people to see deeply into one another and recognize their connectedness with all of life y meeting divinity in the eyes of others. I love helping adults and children who have survived tremendous trauma to dig deep into their own healing, uncovering the "gift" buried in the trauma. I am passionate about the use of myth and storytelling for transforming lives, evolving brains, and building community. I share healing through my work as a psychotherapist utilizing expressive arts methodologies to integrate mind/body systems.My personal experiences of trauma and as a supporter of family members struggling with severe mental illness have equipped me for this sacred work. It is time for the healing of eons of intergenerational trauma. That is what I am all about!
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
I am currently working at the Community Counseling Center as a licensed marriage and family therapist and clinical psychologist intern. I specialize in sandtray and expressive arts therapies. I would like to develop a theatre in Ashland dedicated to sociodrama, much like Bohl's Theatre of the oppressed. My former career as an actor, writer, and producer of live theatre has prepared me for this. Through meditation, I have received a clear vision of this project. I am very interested in connecting with others who have similar interests.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
One of my favorite books is "Speech of the Grail," which I understand was written by an Ashland local. If anyone could arrange an introduction I would be forever grateful!

I am interested in getting involved at the Goddess Temple at Jackson Wellsprings.

I greatly enjoy the local store, "Love Revolution," and appreciate what Brenda and Mitchell are doing to dispell the sexual shadow. I sometimes present in the educational spae there.

Many people who know me have suggested I write a book about my journey from Southern Baptist Sunday School teacher to Beverly Hills stripper. I'd like to weave the neuropsychology of embodied movement into the text. Perhaps soon I will begin working on this.

I just completed a participatory research project on female's who engage in intimate rage enactments. The findings were phenomenal and I would like to repeat this project with male participants.

Welcome to the Ashland Resource Center,

You can utilize this resource center as it grows to share information about yourself and your projects, business or organization. This provides a vital inventory of who's doing what so we can better connect and prosper each other. This resource center is akin to our own local community version of FaceBook/MySpace with the ability to meet and greet face-to-face as well.

Your "MyPage"

You can fill out your "MyPage" with more information and resources. In the "text" box you can build a webpage, add a description, format text, upload photos, embed video, etc. This "MyPage" becomes your own social network "portal" with full capabilities. You can "Edit" features on your "MyPage," move the boxes around by selecting and dragging the headers to where you want them on the page. You can even change your theme and appearance.

In the "RSS" box you can add any RSS feed. You can upload a profile photo or logo under "MySettings" so we can feature your page. For new member instructions and tutorial go to: FAQ's & Tutorial

Invite New & Old "Friends"

Use this full-service social media network to share yourself with the local community by inviting both new and old friends under "Members" to become your "friend." This is how this resource center grows strong and we are kept informed locally about events and activities of vital interest.

May all your creative projects and endeavors be blessed with abundance.

-Johnny & Linda, CO-ORGANIZERS

McDonald's Is Closing More Restaurants Than It Opens | The Food Revolution Network

Finally, our efforts to avoid processed foods and Frankenfoods are paying off. For the first time in decades, McDonald’s is struggling and has to close more restaurants than it opens after worldwide drops in sales. According to an Associated Press review of McDonald’s regulatory filings, this hasn’t happened since 1970. Earlier this year the fast food giant announced the closing of 350 underperforming locations, but recently admitted it had to close an additional 350 restaurants in the U.S., Japan, and China. The closings include both franchises and company-owned locations.
