Pandemic World: How My Communal Past Helps Me Cope

AB3 Babies Canning 1977Clifford Chappell018.jpeg

As our modern-day plague began to ripple through the USA, I wondered why community-minded health measures weren’t obvious to everyone? In “Pandemic World: How My Communal Past Helps Me Cope,” I explore how my fifteen years on a hippie commune help me get by today. Maybe it will help you too. I hope you enjoy and share! May all be safe. May all be well.

As published in Honeysuckle Magazine. Click to read the full article:

“In this global pandemic, news from the fronts changes moment by moment, and millions of people are plugged into a whole-world effort: a war to beat a microscopic enemy, ten times as deadly as the flu. With the estimated exponential growth rate, the speed of time seems to have elongated, and the cycle of one day seems like a year or million. Worldwide, the pandemic happened so quickly, yet I feel like I’m watching events unfold in slow motion.”

My Path to Healing: Interview on Heart Over Ego Radio with The Alchemy Sisters

I was a guest on the wonderful, expansive Heart Over Ego Radio with The Alchemy Sisters and had a great time. We go deep! They ask about and we discuss: energy and touch healing, headaches and migraines, my spiritual path and awakening to God/Universal consciousness, Somatics, The Farm and our 60s hippie trajectory, charismatic leaders, American Commune the movie, spiritual vs. political community, and more. This is my most personally revealing interview to-date. I hope you listen, enjoy, and if so, please share.

On 2.24.2020 we hosted a discussion with Jan Mundo. As a 1960s bohemian teenager attending services in synagogue, Jan had an “’aha’ divine transmission moment” where she realized she was connected directly to God/Universal Consciousness instead of needing intermediary clergy. Later influenced by psychedelic experiences, eastern philosophies, and esoteric spiritual teachers and disciplines, she delved into the exploration of the interconnectedness of all living beings.

She developed the Mundo Method hands-on headache relief therapy in 1970. In 1992, she codified the Mundo Method into self-care instructions, created a mind-body self-care headache management program, and began teaching her program to private clients and holding classes at medical centers, universities, corporations, and conferences — including Kaiser Permanente, Stanford University, UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, New York Headache Center, Apple, LinkedIn, U.S. Association for Body Psychotherapy, and the worldwide online Embodiment Conference.

Mundo’s mission is to awaken headache and migraine sufferers to their own capacity for self-healing. Her self-illustrated book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook published by New World Library in 2018, teaches readers how to do it. Her writing and interviews about her work are published in books, magazines, online, in podcasts, and on the radio. https://theheadachecoach.com

 

Invitation: The Embodiment Conference, Happening Worldwide Now! Nov. 12-24

Boys water fight, Tukad Unda dam, Bali, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, Asia

 

I’m super-excited to invite you to a fantastic event: The Embodiment Conference. I feel honored to present at this global learning experience. And, guess what? You can attend from wherever you are, it’s happening now, and it’s great!

Over one hundred of the world’s best embodiment teachers are sharing their knowledge, experience, and wisdom in this online celebration of reconnecting with the body.

Whether you want to get an overview of embodiment and somatics, go deeper into a certain type of bodywork, or broaden your perspective beyond your own field, there’s something for everyone. There are seventeen different tracks ranging from Coaching, Leadership, Bodywork, Dance, Movement, Yoga, and Martial Arts to Meditation, Integral, Peace, Trauma, Creativity, Ecology, and more.

Tickets are free, but spots are limited!

This Sunday, November 18, 5 pm EST, I’m presenting an experiential talk, The Somatic Art of Healing Headaches, Migraine, and Chronic Pain.” Please join me!

The conference is online on Zoom, and sessions cover time zones globally. All sessions will be recorded and freely available for a week after the end of the conference. You can also purchase the conference recordings to watch forever at your leisure.

There’s a tremendous line-up of speakers, including Ken Wilber, Don Hanlon Johnson, Debbie Rosas, Charles Eisenstein, Martha Eddy, Dianne Bondy, Joel Levey, Jozef Frucek, Helen Payne, Ariana Rabinovitch, Paul Linden, Amanda Blake, and many more. Plus, presenters (me included) are offering a variety of special discounts and bonuses.

Here’s what conference host Mark Walsh says about The Embodiment Conference:

“In this conference, we’ve envisioned something bold. We have a great organising team, the necessary technological platforms, and something a little special is possible. What Google has done with information, this conference starts to do with embodied experience – to make what is wise, world-changing, and always at hand, freely available to all.

We want to connect those globally who share passion for this work, and offer leaders in this field a wider reach to do the good that they do. Typically organizers of events say they are “excited” . . . but this does not sum up the deep yearning and sense of purpose that I have for this conference. It will be profound. You are warmly invited.”
