Beginning as a student in anthropology, Simon turned his fascination with people into a career of convincing people to do what inspires them.

October 21st - Diane Israel – Beauty Mark – Body Image & the Race for Perfection – LISTEN NOW!

Diane Israel was a very successful professional triathlete and runner for 15 years. After retiring from professional competition, she became a psychotherapist specializing in domestic violence with offenders.   A recovering athletic bulimic, Diane counsels people in physical, mental and spiritual integration. She has made it her mission to provide strong support and guidance for others in the areas of body image, nutrition and rekindling life’s passions and direction. A note from Diane – “Frustrated and exhausted by our culture’s fixation with thinness and external beauty, I set out on a mission to understand this mania.  After years of being a very driven and compulsive athlete, this became my new obsession.  I wondered what our world would be like if all the energy and time we spent seeking fulfillment outside ourselves was turned toward helping others.  Were there others who felt the way I did? With the guidance and support of my childhood neighbor, Carla Precht (who became my Co-Director), and other crew members, I was forced to see that I had to be willing to tell my own story if anyone would believe our film.  I never imagined that my life would become a central thread to this story.  With this film I hope to encourage each of you to ask yourself  ‘what is my unique beauty?’  I am learning that when we begin to live our own Uniqueness, that is Beauty Mark!” Click here to go to Beauty Mark is for anyone who has ever felt invisible because they didn’t conform to our culture’s impossible, unhealthy, abnormal beauty standards. The film examines popular culture’s toxic emphasis on weight and looks through the eyes of Boulder-based psychotherapist and former world-class triathlete Diane Israel, who tells her own story while interviewing other champion athletes, body builders, fashion models and inner-city teens about their experiences relating to self-image.

Lovers’ Yoga is similar to traditional partner yoga but with extra oomph. “I want to create that magic that happens between couples when their bodies are together.” says author Darrin Zeer. “There’s an incredible melting and intimacy that happens, but also a profound relaxation.” To encourage closeness without making couples feel uncomfortable, Lovers’ Yoga starts like a tantric workout focusing on fun & play and then progresses slowly to a more intimate level. In “Playful Partner Yoga,” the first of five chapters, couples begin with the “Happy Hug.” By the last one–“Passionate Partner yoga”–you will be blissfully cuddling up in “Spooning Savasana.” As Zeer says, “Just by doing these simple partner stretches, you’ll be feeling in love with your partner and in love with yourself. It’s a fun journey into more love, intimacy & play with your partner, without stress or struggle.”
