The Call of the Day Taps into Our Authentic Self
October 2017

Jodi Hershey’s new book The Call of the Day focuses on what is taking place today spiritually and how we are called to tap into our authentic self to individually and collectively do our part in, what she asserts is, humanity “moving from our familiar Third-Dimensional ego self into a Fourth Dimension soul self, with the ability to reach higher levels of awareness and consciousness.”

“Now more than ever, we are called upon to qualify our lives,” says Hershey. “It is a time when we are asked to find our true soul self, which is our home, our connection to the universal life force. We are asked to open our hearts so that we are able to see all that was intended to be. This is ‘the call
of the day’.”

Hershey is a graduate from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education. She is a trained hypnotherapist in basic, advanced and past-life regression. For more than 15 years, she has provided support as a hypnotherapist, psychic/intuitive reader and spiritual counselor.

Community Volunteers Needed at EvergreenHealth Hospice
September 2017

EvergreenHealth Hospice volunteer coordinator Criss East says the organization is in need of additional volunteer support and is currently accepting applications for September and October trainings.

“We are seeking kind and caring individuals to share their time and talents with our hospice patients and their families,” East says. “This assistance can include running errands, playing card games, listening to a person’s life story, reading or singing, playing or listening to music, or watching TV with a patient.”


EvergreenHealth Hospice serves patients in King and Snohomish Counties and volunteers are free to choose where their assignments will be. “We especially need people who can volunteer in the community – in patient’s homes, adult family homes, and nursing homes,” East says.

East notes that a volunteer’s presence can help lessen a patient’s loneliness by providing them with companionship, and caregivers find relief when a volunteer comes to stay with a patient so the caregiver can get some time off. “Spending time with someone who is dying makes me realize what is truly important in my own life,” says volunteer Julia Guderian. “The comprehensive training you receive will help you to open your heart to understanding the circumstances a hospice patient and their loved ones are facing, and give you the practical and emotional tools to feel confident about offering them the assistance you have been trained to provide,” she continues.

“Volunteers are integral members of the hospice team and receive support from their team including the social worker and nurse assigned to the family they are working with,” East says, and adds that ongoing hospice education and friendly volunteer gatherings are offered throughout the year.

Bastyr University Announces Yin Yoga Teacher Training
September 2017

sept_2017_page_5A Yin Yoga Teacher Training course will take place at Bastyr University’s Kenmore campus starting on Sept. 30, with a commitment of weekends plus Wednesday evenings for eight weeks. Each trainee will complete 200 hours of training and will receive a certificate of completion allowing them to register with Yoga Alliance as instructors. The course is open to the public; however, participants should have a minimum of six months of any style yoga practice.

“We are often moving so it’s hard to be still and let thoughts come and go,” says Pam Granston, instructor of the new Yin Yoga Teacher Training course at Bastyr University.She explains that the yin style of yoga can help people find balance in today’s yang-focused society.

“In the yoga world, most athletic-based classes are rooted in yang with a focus on building muscles and strength,” Granston says. “Meanwhile, yin yoga focuses on the connective tissues–joints and ligaments–and works to help you release energy and blockages that can disrupt our qi.”

Qi, pronounced “chee,” is the underlying life force that runs through the body along what are known as meridians. “There are highways of energy that move up and down and across our body,” says Granston. “Yin yoga’s focus on opening connective tissues and joints allows qi to continue to flow.”

The new teacher training course is offered through Bastyr’s Department of Certificate, Community and Continuing Education, and upon completion of the 200 training hours, students are eligible for certification through the Yoga Alliance to teach their own yin yoga class.

However, Granston says the class can also be beneficial for individuals who simply want to expand upon their own practice and cultivate a depth of awareness. “This course will provide you with a deeper knowledge of yin and yang,” she says. “It will give you what you need to find balance in your life.”

The Yin Yoga Teacher Training course begins Sept. 30. $2800/before Sept. 10; $3000/after. For more information: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 425-602-3152.
