Brew Guide of the Week: Espresso
Producing great espresso is not easy. It requires patience, effort, understanding and skill. The keys to getting good espresso from a quality espresso machine include: using high quality, fresh coffee; correctly grinding the coffee with a high grade burr grinder; correctly packing the accurate amount of coffee into the basket; and extracting the coffee at the correct temperature. Keeping the equipment clean is a crucial part of insuring consistency in process and product. http://ow.ly/rZgwD

Peripheral Vision As Our Navigational System
More people seem to be having difficulty with balance and orientation, today. Why is this so? I believe we have lost the connection between our central/ peripheral vision and our vestibular system.

I am in the process of developing a new retreat format in Hawaii for 2014, which includes dolphin interactions as part of my EYE-Wellness program. For registration information, checkout my event listings: http://www.drsamberne.com/events.php

People often ask how my EYE program connects to the interactions with dolphins. First, we need to know that the eyes connect directly to the pineal gland. The pineal is a liquid crystal that connects us to the great world of nature. The more we recognize this link, the more adept we become at achieving wellness. My dolphin research validates many of the qualities that humans aspire to embody: sensuality, pleasure (which produces the hormone oxytocin), play, humor, wellness, and unconditional love.
As the wild dolphins stimulate our pineal, we begin resonating at a higher frequency. Once we enter this vibrational state, we begin to see in 5-D vision. Current 2-D vision keeps us in the fear paradigm. But 5-D vision encourages our masculine and feminine energies to join and become a unified consciousness. Our fear dissolves and we enter a state of love.

Varietal of the Week: SL34

Varietal of the Week: SL34
SL34 is a mutation of the French Mission, or Bourbon, coffee variety created at Scott Laboratories in Kenya during the 1930s. SL34 has bronze tipped leaves which differentiates it from its predecessor, SL28, and leads us to believe that it has greater lineage to the Typica variety than the SL28. SL34, regarded as very resistant to heavy rainfall at high altitudes, is known for an ability to produce top quality at medium-to-high altitudes. SL34 flavor is characterized by its complex citric acidity, heavy mouthfeel and clean, sweet finish. http://ow.ly/rZfHO

Seeing Eye To I: Dolphin Swim Retreat With Dr. Sam Berne
August 11-15, 2014 Kona, Hawaii
Come and join me in Hawaii! After each morning swim, we will have the afternoon to snorkel, go to the beach, or enjoy the relaxing tropical breezes. Our human pod will meet as a group at the end of the day to integrate our experiences together. We will explore our planetary body through the language of fluid movement using primordial breath, undulating wave motion, and open perception to help liberate our consciousness as we connect to a deeper part of ourselves, the Nature Spirits, and our Star Relations. This will be a juicy time of receiving the spaciousness of silence, deeper self-regulation, and a fertile capacity for a connected embodiment.
