He has now worked as a healer and intuitive reader for many years, and views it as an honour to assist clients with their journeys in life. He says: “I help people on their spiritual path. In a reading, which can take up to an hour or more, I communicate with spirit guides and loved ones who have passed over. I never know what will happen in a reading: everyone is unique. It works on many levels, answers questions and brings about balance and harmony. It is always enjoyable and often profound.”

Discover the Benefits of Chi Fit Tea
Chi Fit Tea is an Irish company with a passion for high-quality, energising tea. They named the company after the Chinese word ‘Chi’, or ‘energy’, to emphasise the origin and heritage of their ingredients. When the founders felt that green tea, oolong tea and pu’erh tea were a little too bitter for them, they set out to create their own unique blend. They did this by blending a specific variety of powerful teas and spending months perfecting this blend until they were happy with the taste. They then set about finding an amazing organic tea producer in China. Now, Chi Fit Tea is composed of ten naturally powerful ingredients, full of naturally occurring properties that give drinkers an energy boost. This tea is great for pre-gym sessions, as the ingredients promote health and fitness benefits.

Healing is Voltage: Check Out the New Book Making Waves
Dr. Jerry Tenant – a board-certified ophthalmologist in the U.S., who is now the director of the Tennant Institute for Integrative Medicine – has a revolutionary approach to healing that he outlines in his new book, Healing is Voltage. He explains that every cell in the body is designed to run at -20 to -25 millivolts. To heal, we must make new cells. To make a new cell requires -50 millivolts. Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below -20 and/or you cannot achieve -50 millivolts to make new cells. Thus chronic disease is always defined by having low voltage. His book aims to tell you how to measure your voltage in each organ, how to correct it, and how to determine why your voltage may have dropped enough to allow you to get sick.
O’Brien’s Café Launches Healthy New Veggie Bowl

It is suitable for both men and women and it can also be used for pets.” You can book an appointment with her here, or visit her website below for more information.

Coffee and Mushrooms: a Winning Combination
When most people think about a really good cup of coffee, they don’t imagine it being made with mushrooms … but the U.S. company Four Sigmatic is challenging that perception. They make use of chaga mushrooms: a product that is quickly gaining a reputation for the delicious coffee flavour it produces, without giving users the energy crash that often occurs after consuming traditional coffee. One of their flavours, in particular – mushroom coffee with lion’s mane – is a genuine taste sensation. We love it! To learn more about Four Sigmatic’s products, visit their website below.
If you are interested in discovering some of the amazing benefits of hemp, you need to check out Hempful’s amazing range of body butters, tea, moisturisers and CBD oils, to name a few.

He will share information about how the healing practices of the Tao can transform our lives (the Eventbrite link for that is here). Both events will take place in the beautiful setting of the Bewley’s Café Theatre, 78/79 Grafton Street, Dublin 2.

Warm Your Spirit With Chaga Tea
Chaga Tea is a unique type of tea widely renowned for its health benefits. Its flavour is similar to the earthy taste of coffee, but drinking Chaga Tea does not lead to the energy crash associated with coffee consumption. Chaga Tea Ireland founder Philip credits it for helping him to improve his health. He says: “I discovered Chaga after years of experimenting with different diets due to a Crohn’s condition. My first cup of Chaga had quite an impact. An hour later I felt energised yet calm, with a clarity similar to the effects of coffee, but without the buzz.”
