Leave a comment

HOPE LIVES ON

It is inspiring to watch this attached video featuring Dr. Victor Rios, PHD. His  many personal achievements are noteworthy. They came after having the strength and determination to extricate himself from a life of gang violence. He has gone on to became an educator and published author. These extremely impressive achievements are highlighted by his soulful intellect. A quality I wish more people in academic world possessed.

DEFINITION OF THE WORD REMARKABLE: SOMEONE OR THING NOTABLE, STRIKING, OUTSTANDING.

Remarkable is another word that defines Dr. Rios. Currently a  professor of sociology at the University of  California at Santa Barbara. Dr. Rios was featured on the PBS Newshour on 2/1/2012. Click here to see the footage.

Also of interest is the interview with his colleague Professor Richard Ross. Mr. Ross is a photographer. His work documents the struggles of teen offenders. The photos speak for themselves. The interview with Mr. Ross [click here] is a revealing narrative of his photographic editorial on the US juvenile system.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
