Mid-life as Alchemy

Kalpana (Rose) Kumar, M.D.

What is Midlife? What is Menopause? What is at stake?


What is our Conditioned-Self? What is our Authentic-Self? How do they differ?


In my 22 year history as a physician who has worked with thousands of brave and courageous men and women with stories of wounding, suffering and healing, I can say that I have been able to identify the differences between these selves and the intrinsic power that emerges when one leaves the Conditioned for the Authentic Self. The Conditioned-self is who you were told you SHOULD BE. The Authentic-Self is WHO YOU ARE. For the first half of our life, the Authentic-Self is buried beneath the Conditioned. In the second half, we must re-emerge Authentic. 

Homeopathy as Part of Healthcare

David Johnson, CCH

In this two minute YouTube video, General Practitioner,  Dr. Ralf Schmalhorst succinctly summarizes why those of us who take an active approach to our health and well-being should consider homeopathy as part of our care.  


If you are interested in seeing whether homeopathic care is a good fit for you, a family member or friend, you can call David Johnson, CCH, PA with your questions at our clinic number 262-695-5311. David is a certified classical homeopath and has been working in that capacity for the past 18 years. Prior to that he was a physician assistant for 12 years and worked in many different areas of conventional medicine.

New Years Resolutions and Benefits of Yoga

Shelley Carpenter, PT, Reiki Master, RYT 

If you're like most people, your resolutions included exercising more, eating right, and finding more enjoyment in life--whatever that means for you. A regular yoga practice can assist in achieving those goals. Perhaps the reason you haven't exercised in the recent past is because you've had physical pain or injuries that limit what you can do. Maybe the reason that you are overeating or making unhealthy food choices is that you are using food as a way to deal with stress. Maybe it's been hard to find time for enjoyment or pursuing your dreams because of your hectic schedule.

You will learn about the many proven health benefits of yoga for people of all ages and abilities, and relax with a guided meditation.


Boris Matthews, PhD, Jungian Psychotherapist, is offering a special Saturday workshop entitled: "Where Are We When There's Nothing at the Center?"  Our struggles with the loss and betrayal of our dreams and the emptiness that results cuts to the very roots of our sense of identity; bringing us face to face with fury, fear, and despair. This is hard to bear.  In this workshop we will invoke myth and story and personal experiences to explore how the collapse of our dreams and our loss of our sense of identity takes us into dark places. We'll learn when we can yield to those dark places and with the right kind of support, how renewal begins and rebirth can follow.
