Main Presentation: “Effects Of Mercury Exposure Throughout Human Lifespan” by Sara Russell, NTP

An introduction of the effects of mercury exposure through the human lifespan will be presented. Mercury bio-accumulates during our individual lifespans as well as from generation to generation via in utero exposure. Each generation becomes potentially more mercury toxic than the previous one. This is particularly the case since the introduction of amalgam fillings approximately 150 years ago, which remains the most significant source of mercury exposure both for those of us who have directly have them placed in our mouths and to those of us who have been exposed indirectly, via in-utero exposure to mercury from our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers.

Of course, there are other sources of mercury, and the most common ones will be discussed. Additionally mercury exposure pre-conception in either parent can alter the offspring’s epigenetics, increasing susceptibility to mercury’s effects throughout life.

Most common signs and symptoms of mercury toxicity will also be discussed, noting that precisely because of mercury’s wide-ranging mechanism of toxicity, these symptoms may appear somewhat vague and each can definitely have etiologies other than or in addition to mercury.

Short Presentation: “Health, Wellness, and Vitality Through Orgasmic Meditation” by Natalie Thiel

Join Natalie Thiel for a talk about Orgasmic Meditation: a 15 minute partnered meditation practice which hacks into our natural wiring for connection. This practice blends consciousness with sexuality, an area that is often taboo and yet has benefits that are continuing to surprise practitioners and scientists alike.

Participants report greater vitality, more energy, better complexion, and a myriad of other benefits. Many of these benefits are similar to what people report in relation to having regular sex. However, with Orgasmic Meditation we can have these experiences repeatedly and consistently. We bypass all the cultural conditioning of sex and let two people connect in a totally different way. 

Today, there is a brand new study featuring Orgasmic Meditation being completed by researchers in Southern California. The repeatability of Orgasmic Meditation makes it perfect for researchers to use Brain Scans to see exactly how our brains, and limbic systems react to this type of connection. And the best part? It’s the first partnered stimulation study in the history of the United States since Masters and Johnson!
