Be a Part of my Sunrise to Sunset Longest Day Adventure for Alzheimer’s on June 21st

Image

THE LONGEST DAY JUNE 21ST IS AN ALZHEIMER’S EVENT FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET ON THE LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR

BE A PART OF MY 16HR ADVENTURE NEXT FRIDAY IN HONOR OF MY MOM ( MY HEART, SOUL AND BEST FRIEND) WHO WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER’S

Join here and share and invite others and post your idea for our time together that day.

It can be 15 mins, 1/2 hr, an hour or a few hrs of your time up to you. I’m looking to create as many adventures in my 16 hr day so share part of it with me and lets have an adventure together for a good cause.

This event is about patience, strength and endurance – but it’s also about a challenge. On The Longest Day, they say do something you love – or try something new – to advance the cause! For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, this challenge is every day. For me it’s just one day.

There are teams across the country that will be participating and even though I found out too late to join or register a team I decided to take on the challenge myself to fill up the 16hrs of this LONGEST DAY event and this will be my BIGGEST ADVENTURE YET!

COME SHARE PART OF THE DAY WITH ME SHARING SOMETHING YOU LOVE AND CHALLENGING ME TO TRY NEW THINGS! TOSS ME YOUR CRAZY IDEAS BRING ME INTO YOUR WORLD FOR AN HOUR OF IT.

I have 16 hrs to fill with adventures and will be documenting the journey to share with my Mom and others dealing with this disease and their caregivers it it to honor them that I am taking on this challenge and along the way to hear and share stories of those affected by this disease.

And at Sunset on June 21 the adventure will finish with a gathering for a Bon Fire and Sound Bath to gather all those that shared part of their day with me and any others touched by Alzheimer’s that want to come and share and celebrate and honor their loved ones with me. LOCATION TO BE ANNOUNCED LATER.

PLEASE SHARE this on your wall or with your FB groups and friends so that I can fill the 16 hrs with lots of cool adventures. Think out of the box!

I need a videographer and photographer who wants to share the day with me and document the journey so we can create something to share with my Mom and with others dealing with Alzheimer’s and inspire others to get out and help.

The cool thing is the CEO of the Alzheimer’s Org in LA saw and read about my idea and so hopefully more to unfold.

If anyone has media contacts so I could combine an adventure with exposure for my Longest day journey and so I can speak about this day and event on morning radio or tv it could be fun and raise awareness for the event and the cause.

So from Sunrise to Sunset I want to take on new challenges or try new things or do things I love and share that with others who want to come along on the journey with me. I want to try wild stuff since many of my FB friends are artists, musicians, comedians, healers, doctors, executives, coaches, actors, lawyers, you name it. So bring me into your world and teach me something new, or come up with an idea of something we can do together for an hr. I’m working for free that day (LOL) put me to work, teach me a magic trick or how to tell a good joke, kayak, cook with me, teach me how to make something you create (jewelry, chainsaw art, paint) hike with me for an hour at your favorite spot or invite me to a class or workshop you teach that day, share the things you love with me and then at SUNSET for all those who want to come together with me I want to do a celebration to end the day and honor my Mom and all those dealing with Alzheimer’s or who have lost someone to it

You know me I hang with Wolves so I love adventure so toss it at me all your crazy ideas I will need to fill up 16 hrs.

Who’s with me?

For anyone in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas of SF Valley, Ventura, Orange County please Send me your ideas and nothing is too crazy and give me a time during the day we could do it and then I’ll pick and let you all know. Let’s have an adventure together and honor those who are touched by this disease everyday including the caregivers!

With love and excitement.

http://www.wolfconnection.org/events/healing-hike-with-the-wolves-and-tibetan-bowl-sound-bath-with-kir

EVENT DETAILS:
“This evening is about bringing together the things I love – Nature, Wolves, and my Sound Healing work in a wonderful shared group experience.” – Kirsten

First, we will embark on a sunset adventure hike to meet the pack and connect to our bodies in nature and that childlike playfulness of exploring together. After some light snacks, we will then venture into the wonderful Tee Pee and share in a healing Tibetan Bowl Sound Bath. Journey into the healing sounds and vibrations of the bowls, feel the energy of the wolves around us, and come together at the end of the day, connecting to ourselves and as a group. ~

At the start of the session, Kirsten will take you through some breathing and releasing exercises to help relax and unwind your body and mind. You will then be slowly guided through a visualization meditation, which will allow your mind to drift off to a place filled with peace, stillness, and harmony.

Working intuitively, Kirsten will play Tibetan singing bowls along with healing music created with sounds and vibrations to take you on a remarkable journey of beautiful and tranquil harmonics. The experience can literally feel like you are submerged in a beautiful sea of sound and vibration.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in NY

THIS EVENT IS FOR AGES 17+ AND LIMITED TO 30 GUESTS. PLEASE DRESS COMFORTABLY BUT BRING STURDY SHOES TO HIKE IN. BRING A PILLOW, BLANKET, OR YOGA MAT TO SIT ON FOR THE SOUND BATH AND A LIGHT JACKET OR SWEATER AS IT COOLS DOWN AT NIGHT.

ABOUT KIRSTEN KOROT…

Kirsten Korot is a Therapeutic Guided Imagery Master, Wellness and Soul Coach and Speaker. She guides you on a journey of Breathwork, Guided Imagery and Sound Healing using Tibetan “singing” bowls widely known for their hypnotic tones and therapeutic ability to promote healing, peace of mind, balance, harmony and creativity. Kirsten works privately in one-on-one sessions, and holds Sound Baths and her Nature/Nurture Outdoor Healing Hikes and events in and around Los Angeles.

“I have been on both sides of the healing process, first as someone who had to help heal herself to beat the 50/50 odds of survival from a life threatening illness, and now, using those same tools to help others to manage stress, pain, connect the dots in their life, move through illness or grief, let go and release things no longer needed in their life, and empower them with tools they can use on a day to day basis to find more peace and balance. I love empowering others in their own healing journey.” -Kirsten

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

This is something I wanted to share with all of you since for myself really being comfortable in the moments alone and living authentically has been a huge part of my journey. And the things that are important to me are not the externals but the heart centered, inner spirit of a person and if they are willing to let the masks down and be truly vulnerable, beautifully open and willing to sit with all their feelings whether it is love or pain for that is the only way we can connect with ourselves at the deepest level and then be that with another.

For many that is a scary unknown to be that open and vulnerable and face our own fears, anger, pain, doubts, faults, and shadow sides but the only way to truly love and connect with our own heart is to look at all our sides in those moments when we are alone and grow and learn from them and embrace and be authentic about who we really are. All of it is part of what has gotten us to this moment and who we are in this moment.

with love ~ Kirsten


The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy. I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes.’

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children. It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

Full Moon – A Time to Let Go of the Past and Find Balance in the Future – Embrace the Unknowns!

HAVE YOU MADE YOUR FULL MOON WISH LIST? SOUNDS SILLY BUT YOU’D BE AMAZED WHAT COMES OUT WHEN YOU GET OUT OF THE WAY AND WRITE THEM DOWN – IT WORKS.
There are alot of energy shifts going on and this is an exciting time. I love making Full Moon Wishes where I write down a list of 10 wishes setting new intentions and goals as if they are already present.This month is a powerful time for Letting Go of the Past and finding balance with the Future – your visions, ideas, dreams, imagination. In my workshops I talk about embracing the UNKNOWNS and the MAGIC of all possibilities that lies in the unknown. We know our past, we have some knowledge of our present which is only this moment as it is happening and the beauty is the future is whatever we want to create on the road in front of us.What actions would you right now if you were already standing in who you want to become. Start acting as if you are already there and see how things around you shift! It is amazing what doors will open when we focus forward instead of standing still or looking behind us.The beauty as children we have is that the future is just a beautiful big unknown. The magic is staying open, in awe, letting go of fears and embracing it with trust, an open heart and faith in yourself to let it unfold for truly as much as we think we can control the future all we have is each moment as it happens so be joyful in all the moments.Use this full moon to cleanse, release, clear and let go of things holding you back from that joy so it doesn’t sit in your body and block your energy from moving you forward.Make that Full Moon Wish List and let me know what happens!

Take Time Each Day to Stay Connected to Your Heart

Let your heart be your empowerment that fertilizes the roots of your soul to bloom and grow so that you can fully embody your Authentic, Real, Raw, Naked and Beautiful self and share it with the world – “The Adventurous Alchemist – Kirsten Korot”

Artwork by Sunny Strasburg

Take time each day to connect to your heart. Close your eyes, put your hand on your heart or just focus your breath and energy there and stay focused on the beauty of your own heartbeat. You may not feel a deep heart connection right away…… but the effort to reconnect you to your heart center starts the energy flowing. Stay tuned into it by thinking of someone you love or a memory or a great life experience that fills your heart. Connecting to those feelings helps you remember and the more you practice connecting to your heart the easier to reconnect and keep in that flow daily.

Then when you are in those moments that may be difficult think about what would love do in that moment and connect to your heart and that energy. Be your Real, Raw, Naked and Authentic Self by staying connected to your heart each day.

Hand on Heart with love – Kirsten

I love this quote for there is no Love without being courageous enough to be vulnerable and open to hurt which is always a risk but not to risk would mean to  also miss out on the beauty of Love.

 

 

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will certainly be wrung and probably be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully around with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safely in the casket of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become impenetrable, irredeemable . . . The only place outside heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers of love, is hell. – C.S. Lewis

Sharing part of my own Journey through the Unknown with Lisa Steadman

So proud to have shared my story with Lisa Steadman on her TV program in 2011.   If you have a Blink of An Eye Moment in your life you want to share with the world I am collecting video moments and written moments for my Blink of An Eye 2012 Blog and book to come.   Those moments are part of embracing the unknown and together perhaps in sharing our stories we can help someone through their own unknown moments and make a difference.

What would YOU do if a doctor delivered a dire diagnosis and said you only had 50-50 chances of surviving? In this episode of Woohoo TV, healer Kirsten Korot shares with host Lisa Steadman how she healed herself from serious liver disease using sound therapy, body talk, and mastering her mind-body connection.

Welcome to a New Year where every day is a chance to step into the beauty of the unknown and make it all your own. Be in the magic of discovering where this year will take you if you are open to all possibilities and Embrace the Unknown if you let go of any blocks, fears or the need to control the outcome. Have fun, explore, play, adventure and let it unfold. Love to you all in this amazing New Year!

Thanks to Kathryn DeBra for sharing her experience in my new “Embracing the Unknown Workshop” which I unveiled to a small intimate group on Dec 30 as part of my new workshops for 2012.
