A New Beginning

April is the first full month of spring, the time for new beginnings in nature. It’s the season of wood, which is one of the five elements used in Taoist wellness practices. Great care should be given to the nurturing of the liver, a yin organ, and the gall bladder, a yang organ, during this time of year. This is also the time for networking and recharging the mind, body and spirit. I would like to share a few upcoming events that will help accomplish this.

As the strategic network development advisor to 1209 Enterprises, I am happy to join 1209, and a host of business and cultural organizations, in welcoming the legendary George C. Fraser, CEO of FraserNet, Inc., to Harlem on Wednesday April 21st. Mr. Fraser’s organization is considered to be the #1 networking organization for black professionals in the world. This event will take place at the beautiful Dwyer Cultural Center, located at 258 St. Nicholas Avenue. Mr. Frazer will talk about his upcoming conference in Atlanta in June. He will also endorse the 1209 social/business web site, www.the1209affair.com. If you would like to attend this event go to the site and register, it’s free.

The 1209 site is the fastest growing site of its kind in the country. Over 50,000 people from around the corner, and around the world, visit this site every month. It is a wonderful place to network and advertise to a growing market. You can also RSVP for the 21st by calling 212.537.9118.

On Saturday, April 24th, I will join Dr. Robert Woodbine, Tai Chi Grand master Abdul Musawwir, and a host of Urban wellness practitioners to celebrate World Tai Chi and Chi Kung day. This event is also free, and will take place in St. Nicholas park, which is located at 135th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, between the hours of 10am to 12noon. I invite you to come out and learn basic Tai Chi and Chi Kung movements. I will also be giving Ki Energy Chunso treatments on that day. This is the 12th year of this special event, where people worldwide in their time zones practice energy work and collectively focus on world peace and health. For more information on this event call Dr. Robert Woodbine at 212 234-915

Don’t forget that April 22nd is Earth Day, a time to reflect on mother earth - something that we don’t always do. This will be the 39th anniversary of the efforts of United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, and a number of concerned Americans, to bring political awareness to environmental issues. Try to go to a park or some natural place and give thanks to the earth for providing every thing we need to stay alive.

Spring is here and it is time to spring to life and start a new beginning, as the saying goes. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life. I hope to see you at one of the above events.
