The Fur Kids: How Important Pets Are To Our Family

By | Grief | No Comments

The Fur Kids: How Important Pets Are To Our Family Today is a day of celebration for my partner and I. Today, we welcomed a new member to our family. He might be small, about 13 weeks old, has fur and a tail, but we couldn’t be happier. Since my partner and I met close to 14 years ago, we’ve had pets in our lives. Within the first year of meeting, I had adopted a little fur ball named Caspar and that cat took us from being a couple to being a family. We adored that kitten as he was cheeky, tenacious and certainly had a sense of humour. Some of my favourite memories of Caspar as a kitten range between him chasing my partner around the house by biting at his ankles through to playing this game with us where he would attack anything that moved under the bed cover. When Caspar was one year old, we adopted a second fur child; Sambuca. We did this because we thought Caspar could be getting lonely and we had come to the conclusion that pets were often better in pairs. Watching the two grow up together brought us so much enjoyment,…

Moby Gives Away Four Hours of Music FREE For Meditation and Yoga

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, Recording | No Comments

Moby Gives Away Four Hours of Music FREE For Meditation and Yoga What’s not to like about Moby? As one of the most featured artists in movie soundtracks of all time, it is hardly surprising that he can produce subtle and cinematic music that would be perfect for meditation, yoga, mindfulness or even, yes, hypnosis. Over on his website, he has released four hours of ambient music that he has created for just such a purpose and kindly decided to give it away for free. He writes, ”Over the last couple of years I’ve been making really really really quiet music to listen to when I do yoga or sleep or meditate or panic. I ended up with 4 hours of music and have decided to give it away. you can download it for free below or stream it on Spotify, Soundcloud, apple music, deeper, youtube & tidal. It’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc. and feel free to share it or give it away or whatever, it’s not protected or anything, or at least it shouldn’t be. Thanks, Moby” Actually, no – thank…

Why Are We Still Scared Of Seeing Two Men Kissing?

By | LGBTQI | No Comments

Why are we still scared of seeing two men kissing? Scott McKinnon, Western Sydney University Although details remain uncertain, the father of Omar Mateen has claimed that his son’s murderous acts in Orlando’s Pulse nightclub last Saturday may have been inspired by the sight of two men kissing. In response, a twitter campaign with the hashtag #TwoMenKissing has encouraged men to tweet photographs of themselves kissing another man. This is an act of pride and defiance in the face of violent oppression. It also reveals the ongoing politics of men kissing in public. In countries like the United States and Australia, where variant sexualities are increasingly accepted, showing affection in public continues to carry risk. A long history of censorship and erasure has weighted the gay kiss with meaning and often excluded it from view. Those of us who grew up watching TV and going to the movies were fed a constant diet of heterosexual fare, in which the sight of straight couples kissing was so common as to go unmentioned. The entire premise of stories that became films like Snow White and The Little Mermaid is that a kiss from a man will save a woman (or girl). This…

Explainer: What Are False Memories?

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy | No Comments

Explainer: what are false memories? Christopher French, Goldsmiths, University of London Recent media reports have raised questions over the therapy undergone by several people making allegations of historical sexual abuse against prominent public figures. In particular, it has been suggested that certain forms of therapy run a high risk of unintentionally generating false memories of sexual abuse. (False memories are memories for events that are either grossly distorted or never took place at all.) But why are there such fears around these kind of therapies? Techniques to recover allegedly repressed memories can include hypnotic regression, guided imagery, and dream interpretation, and are based on certain notions of how memory works. The therapists involved typically believe that memories for traumatic experiences are automatically banished to the unconscious mind as a defence mechanism. They also believe that, although such memories can no longer be consciously accessed, they still exert a damaging influence, resulting in a wide range of common psychological problems including anxiety, depression, eating disorders and low self-esteem. It is maintained that the only way to deal with these psychological problems is to recover the repressed memories and “work through them” guided by a skilled psychotherapist. Such beliefs and practices are…

“What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?”

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy | No Comments

“What does hypnosis feel like?” Every once in a while, someone will ask me to describe what hypnosis ‘feels like’ due to their own curiosity and I will happily invite them into my St Kilda Rd clinic rooms to experience it for themselves. The reason why I do this is simply because of the fact that everyone experiences hypnosis differently. If you pick up any textbook on hypnotism and hypnotherapy, you’ll notice that they generally will focus more on what hypnosis is not than what it actually is. While scientific research has come a long way in understanding what makes hypnosis work, there are still many questions that remain unanswered. What WON’T happen in Hypnosis In his excellent book ‘Trancework’, Michael Yapko talks about the many misconceptions of hypnosis. These include misconceptions such as: * hypnosis is caused by the power of the hypnotist (no, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis) * only certain kinds of people can be hypnotized (no, hypnosis happens to everyone and is a natural state) * anyone who can be hypnotized must be weak-minded (no, as the study above shows, the types of people who are susceptible to hypnosis tend to be more intuitive, imaginative, and trusting.)…
