Tony Samara, Shaman, Interview Available.

Tony Samara

Tony Samara, author of ‘Shaman’s Wisdom,’ ‘The Simplicity of Love Meditation,’ ‘Different Yet the Same,’ ‘Karma, Mantra and Beyond’ and ‘Discover Your Inner Buddha’ was born in England, grew up in Egypt, England, and also in Norway where he discovered the “Zen Buddhist philosophy”.

This discovery eventually led him to the Mount Baldy Zen Center in California, USA, where he learned the spiritual teachings of Kyozan Joshu Sasaki, Roshi. He had curiosity to explore further the essence of spirituality and thus went to live and learn with shamanic communities around the globe. By going on pilgrimage to various sacred sites in India, Tony was able to dwell deeply upon the ancient Vedic and Jain philosophies and work profoundly with the essence of these teachings.

Now people from all over the world visit Tony Samara to take spiritual guidance and experience being in his presence.

Tony Samara believes that “the vast majority of people go through life without directly experiencing the depths of their true self, or understanding their connection to life, or their relationship to others and to the world at large. We are often taught to only relate to the world through our senses. We think, we reason, we feel – but we do not know from our hearts what it means to be connected to what is beyond the senses.”

He recognizes that direct experiences have the potential to radically transform an individual and his or her life, as well as promote a profound and effortless letting go of past emotional, mental and physical pain and suffering.

His main countries of activity are in Europe, yet with the assistance of the Internet he is attracting a Global audience through frequent online interviews and live satsangs. His function is as a Spiritual Master who encourages all to lead their lives actively in a noble way in order to realize the evolution of human consciousness.

Verbal dialogue is not the essence of his teachings, but he explains in a direct and simple way that everyone can understand how each individual can practically integrate greater acceptance, peace and joy into their daily lives.

Tony Samara teaches with humour, humility and with infinite patience, empowering the individual with courage, trust and inner strength to continue on this journey back into wholeness, a path that leads towards real freedom.

“Conscious evolution is ultimate freedom. Overcoming the fear of what lies ahead, by illuminating the spiritual dimension within our nature, is awakening to the splendour of our hearts.

It is said that the mind clarifies matters and reveals truth, but, in fact, it creates confusion for the heart. True reality dwells in its natural center — the heart: the heart is the path to self-realization.

The totally natural state of joy and wisdom experienced as the heart opens to the truth, is the remarkable state of being, free for all to experience.”

Tony Samara is a mirror of what is possible, a shining reminder of the continuous possibility of being human. More information available at: http://www.TonySamara.com

taramannMy second guests, Tara and Steve Mann, are Co-Founders, CEO and President of Cancer Crackdown. Cancer Crackdown is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization, their passion is to help fighters take their battle with cancer to the next level. They are unique in that they fight alongside those battling this disease. They develop plans and help fighters and survivors to be successful in following them to reach their overall health goals. They offer a wide range of resources and encouragement for those fighting, those surviving and those that wish to prevent this disease. We all have a choice in this battle against cancer, to survive or to prevent!!
Their mission is to be the trusted source of knowledge regarding natural therapies to defeat cancer and remain cancer free. We partner with fighters and survivors by supporting and navigating them through their battle. Together, they develop a unique plan that is specific to each individual and instills in them a fearless approach to winning the battle.
Cancer Crackdown started as a small group on Facebook in January 2012 with a few people who wanted to share some information on tips and best practices during chemo. Cancer Crackdown has grown and we are now serving cancer fighters all over the world!!
Cancer fighters that can no longer take chemo or choose not to are in dire need of accurate information and guidance. Due to the vast amount of information available and many untrustworthy sources on the internet, it makes it difficult for us to make decisions about what is viable information and thus dissuades many from knowing what is worth trying. We have and will continue to research topics of interest and ensure credibility of sources. We help put patients in contact with proper practitioners in their area and locate services for them that may benefit their treatment. We are in the process of building on the services we are able to provide to cancer patients that we are so fortunate to partner with during their difficult time.

More Studies on Meditation as a Healing Therapy.

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Meditation as Healing Therapy

A recent issue of Science Digest reports that more studies are looking at meditation as an effective therapy for cognitive impairment, migraine headache, and pain. In their first study subjects were between age 55 and 90 with mild cognitive impairment (problem with memory or other faculties without yet having dementia) and found that those who practiced MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction consisting of meditation and yoga) for 8 weeks had significantly improved functional connectivity in their brain network that is active during introspective thought such as retrieving memories and less atrophy in the hippocampus (area of brain responsible for emotions. learning, and memory) when compared with controls who received conventional care.  Researchers concluded that the findings indicate meditation may positively affect the area of the brain most impacted by Alzheimer’s and thus may be capable of slowing the progress of the disease.

In their second study researchers found that adults with migraine headaches who practiced MBSR for eight weeks had shorter and less debilitating migraines than those in the control group receiving standard care. The subjects also tended to have less frequent and less severe attacks of migraine and reported having a greater sense of self-control over their migraines.

Another studied carried out by a colleague found that as little as three 20-minute training sessions in mindfulness meditation can reduce pain and everyday anxiety in healthy individuals with no previous meditation experience. Subjects rated the pain they felt while meditating  as 40 percent less intense and 57 percent less unpleasant than when they tested with their eyes closed only.  At the same time the brain imaging showed decreased neural activity in the area of the brain involved with feeling the location and intensity of pain and increased activity in regions of the brain associated with attention and the ability to regulate emotions.  In the anxiety research, subjects reported decreases in everyday anxiety by as much as 39 percent during meditation. At the same time scans of the brain showed increased activity in areas associated with regulating thinking, emotions and worrying. More research by the team on meditation and worry or migraine headaches are ongoing.
