Legends of Rock Film Festival
"Gimme Shelter" [The Rolling Stones] R (1970)

Gimme Shelter Movie Poster Google image from http://www.cineparadise.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/gimme-shelter-movie-rolling-stones.jpg

Wednesday, October 1, 2014 - 6:30 pm

Rated: R, 91 min - Documentary | Music - 13 December 1970 (UK)

Plot Summary from IMDb. "In December of 1969, four months after Woodstock, the Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane gave a free concert in Northern California, east of Oakland at Altamont Speedway. About 300,000 people came, and the organizers put Hell's Angels in charge of security around the stage. Armed with pool cues and knifes, Angels spent the concert beating up spectators, killing at least one. The film intercuts performances, violence, Grace Slick and Mick Jagger's attempts to cool things down, close-ups of young listeners (dancing, drugged, or suffering Angel shock), and a look at the Stones later as they watch concert footage and reflect on what happened." ~ Written by jhailey@hotmail.com.

Watch Trailer: Gimme Shelter movie trailer. YouTube video: 2:48 min.

"3D printing has been around since the 1980s. It's only been in recent years, though, that it's become accessible to the majority of citizens. This technological leap forward has the power to unleash an explosion of creativity and innovation as well as free small, independent entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to life in a quick and cost-effective way ... It doesn't matter that you have no inherent experience with design programs. You don't even need to know how to draw.

Diet and Digestion:
Say Good-Bye to Gerd, Eczema and Auto-Immune

Susan Stephens, RHN Google image from http://gocooking.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/susan-stephens.jpg?w=225&h=300
Susan Stephens, B.Comm, RHN

Friday, October 3, 2014 - 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Complimentary.

Teacher: Susan Stephens, B.Comm, RHN

Susan Stephens: The biggest problem that I see in my practice today is that we don't digest our FOOD, which seems counterproductive, especially if we are taking expensive supplements, drinking green smoothies and eating salads, dusk till dawn. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can eradicate a strong digestive fire, such as stress, coffee, raw/cold foods (oh yes!), liver toxicity, and even enzymes long-term!

In this class, we will explore ways to elevate absorption, improve elimination (Yes, 3 bowel movements a day!!!) and heal Leaky Gut, which is the culprit for many diseases such as Eczema, Auto-immune, Allergies and Asthma.

Definition of GERD, from Mayo Clinic: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disease. GERD occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, stomach content, flows back into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash (reflux) irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD.

So, join Susan Stephens, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner, and come BEAT the BLOAT. Learn about the following topics:
● Discover simple Foods to maximize absorption
● How Increasing Regularity Elevates Mood, Drops Weight and Clears Skin
● What does your poo say?
● How Stress can Impair Digestion and Increase Weight Gain
● Learn how to treat Leaky Gut
● Eliminating Constipation, Gas, Bloating and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
● Protocols for GERD, Acid Reflux and Heartburn
● How to Improve Iron, B12 and Calcium Absorption by Treating Digestion
● What foods are good for you, specifically?
● Learn the basics of tongue diagnosis

Sunday, October 5, 2014 - 9:45 - 11:00 am ~ FREE

Karate World Champion and former Canadian National Karate Team member Clint Cora will be teaching a FREE Total Body Stretch class outdoors at Mississauga Celebration Square.

This is the stretch routine that he used throughout his martial arts competition career and it will help increase flexibility throughout your total body. It will wake up muscles you didn't even know existed!

Many of these stretches can be used as warm ups and cool downs for ANY sporting or exercise activity that you do.

The routine Clint takes people through is SAFE and just as if not more effective than any yoga routine out there in terms of flexibility training. Even yoga instructors have been impressed with Clint's Total Body Stretch session. It is also geared for all levels from beginners all the way to serious athletes.

You will be exposed to the SAME stretches he used for his own competition training (and still use today as part of his overall fitness program).

Near the end of the session, Clint will even show the more advanced and flexible folks his OPTIONAL power stretches that will increase flexibility even greater. Your knowledge of stretching will increase ten fold during this session.

Bring a towel or yoga mat if you don't want to be right on the turf grass.

Meet at 9:45 am at Celebration Square.

Note that this class is geared towards those 16 years of age and older. Although registration is not required, you may wish to visit the GTA Free Spirits Meetup group that is organizing this event in order to see what other social events they run. http://www.meetup.com/gta-free-spirits

Dr. Scott Clack

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 - 7:00 - 8:00 pm

Complimentary.

Teacher: Scott Clack, BSc., N.D.

Type 2 diabetes is considered to be an epidemic health problem in Canada, and continues to rise. Thyroid dysfunction, especially Hypothyroidism, continues to go undiagnosed or insufficiently treated. Conventional medical treatment rarely mentions the role of adrenal dysfunction in these other hormonal conditions.

Dr. Scott Clack will discuss the role of the adrenal glands and how they factor into Type 2 diabetes and Hypothyroidism. This information will help patients who may be classified as borderline, as well as those on medication. Come and learn what you're missing! Dr. Scott Clack (Naturopathic Doctor) has been practicing for over 16 years. He is the founder of Touchstone Naturopathic Centre that services patients in Mississauga, Oakville and the GTA. His family practice focuses on allergies (foods, environment), gastrointestinal complaints, hormonal dysfunction, and neurodevelopmental/neurodegenerative conditions (ADHD, Autism, Parkinson's disease, Dementia, Alzheimer's and more).

Did you know that stress is the most common medical complaint made in a doctor's office today?

Stress is largely undiagnosed or misdiagnosed by General Practitioners. The symptoms can be fatigue, weight gain, low mood, depression, chronic inflammation, hair loss, insomnia, anxiety, chronic colds and infections. Many who suffer from chronic stress are also at a greater risk for developing serious diseases like: cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Dr. David, having suffered himself from a stress related illness, has discovered that the right combination of nutrients accompanied with minor lifestyle modifications can dramatically relieve stress-related symptoms and restore the body. In fact, in his practice, he has found that his adrenal restoration program has an 80% success rate - often within 30 days! This ground-breaking discovery may help to improve your health and prevent the development of some of the common diseases that plague the 21st century.

FREE therapeutic art workshop led by Louise Botha - Artist, Designer, Instructor and Author of Creative Aging!

Louise will provide basic materials for a quick creative activity. "Have fun with me in this mixed media workshop. We will be using acrylic paints and pens to create about versus and quotes that have special meaning to us. During this workshop, we will get the opportunity to share precious memories and also address issues that are important to us."

"If Culture Days were anything to go by - participants were so interested in the message, that creating the art was an afterthought. I encourage you to find your voice through art and verse and share your message - it is both liberating and empowering!" ~ Louise Botha, Facebook: Louise Botha: Art and Design, about.me/louisebotha.

Louise Botha Bio:

Creativity = Peace, Energy and Healing ...

"Creating art has been a lifelong journey of discovery for me. I invite you to discover your own creativity by observing my paintings. They are all very different, because I create my art without any preparative work - imagine no frantic search for ideas, no preliminary sketches... I find it healing and relaxing to paint my thoughts directly onto the canvas - what conspires is a collaboration of my conscious and sub-conscious mind. It is a reflective process, very similar to meditation and the results often amaze me ...

It has been an interesting journey that brought me to this point in my creative life - I studied art and design, went on to become an interior designer, owned and operated a ceramics company and I eventually returned to painting and teaching art and creative studies. My art has been exhibited in galleries across the world and my paintings are in private and public collections. I have always been convinced however that the pleasure of creating art should be for everyone, that the healing power of creativity is of tremendous use to us all and that a creative approach to education would benefit all students.

I encourage you, as you look at my work to think of creating your own - to tap into this wonderfully healing resource and share it with the others ..."

"Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul --- and you answer." ~ Terri Guillemets

WHERE: Participants will work online from home for approximately 2 hours per week.

An Elder Circle is a facilitated, elder-centred small group of older adults who meet regularly for the purpose of exploring and sharing ideas related to the experience of growing older and living in old age.

Elder Circles conducted face-to-face for both men and women have been shown to benefit those who take part in them. This project will explore the effectiveness of delivering an elder circle, for male participants only, in an online format.

Through activities, readings and conversation, six participants will engage in structured online discussion with each other and with the researcher-facilitator about their experience of growing older.

You will need regular access to a computer and the Internet. Only basic computer knowledge is required.

This study has been approved by Sheridan's Research Ethics Board. Participants in this study cannot have participated in a previous Centre for Elder Research study in the last six months.
