Bijoy Goswami Interview

Bijoy Goswami Interview

I read an amazing book recently called the Human Fabric. It resonated so strongly with me that I just had to find and speak to the author himself, Bijoy Goswami.
Though it is a rare priviledge to speak to an author that has a dramatic effect upon your life, it is worth noting the Bijoy is more than just an author. He’s also musician, a playwrite, a public speaker, an Oxford/Stanford Scholor, a tireless networker and entrepreneur amongst many other things…
The Interview.
DS: What inspired you to write the Human Fabric?
BG: Interestingly, I had never planned to write a book. When I started my company, Aviri, my co-founder, Bruce and I started synthesizing what was to eventually become the ‘MRE Framework.’ Our original intent was to alert various thought leaders about our ideas and have them promote it in their talks and writings. Instead, I got asked to speak at conferences and gatherings. As I did this, people would often ask, ‘So when is your book coming out?’ to which I would encourage them to read all the other wonderful books we’d used to develop our ideas. ‘But you have a unique way of presenting them,’ I was told time and again. For a long time I resisted writing because I felt I was not adding anything new to the conversation and why did the world need yet another book on a subject known for 5000 years! Eventually, a conversation with Betty Sue Flowers set me straight. She told me that my job was to remind people of things that we know, but forget. This freed me to get started on writing the book. Really, it was the encouragement of many wonderful folks along the way that provided the inspiration.
DS: What are three basic core types of people you describe in the Human Fabric and how can someone tell which type they are?
BG: The three types are: Maven, Relater and Evangelist. Chapters 1-4 describe these three in good detail. J The short way of saying it is this: Mavens are driven by knowledge, Relaters by relationships and Evangelists by action. I think of these as ‘energies’. People, for some reason, are more connected to one, maybe two of these energies and this ripples out in many aspects of their personality, be it communication, relationships, learning, values, etc.
Discovering your core type is an ongoing process that never ends. My simplest recommendation is to read each chapter describing the three types. As you experience the examples, you will find yourself drawn to one of the three. Ask a friend who knows you very well to give you their impressions. It’s amazing how quickly you will get to your core! I also work with a wonderful partner in Austin, Dorsey Cartwright, who helps people experience the three energies through a Voice Dialogue session. She has done this in group settings and the results are quite revealing! While everyone can get in touch with the three energies, their ‘core’ energy becomes very clear.
DS: What was the most rewarding thing about writing and publishing your own book?
BG: It was the collaborations with my co-author, Dave Wolpert, artist Tina Hudock and the readers of the book. Dave catalyzed me into action and agreed to embark on the process with me. He had written his first book on Scoliosis Surgery, and was experienced in the self-publishing process. Our many conversations and dialogues literally moved the ideas far beyond anything I could have imagined. Tina is a dear friend who not only designed the cover and icons, but also created three amazing paintings which visually capture the three types and their environments. Yet another friend, Steve Harper, has recently written his book, The Ripple Effect, which applies the ideas in THF to relationships.
The other rewarding aspect was when we received the first shipment of books, a day before the book release party in Austin. It’s quite a wonderful feeling to touch and feel an object that you helped create!
DS: What challenges did you have to overcome to get your first book published?
BG: My own inertia to get the process started. Once we got going, things flowed in an amazing way. One of the innovations we developed was to include our readers early in the process. Most books are written with the author ‘going off in a cave’ and emerging with the finished product. We decided instead to engage the audience during this time. It was a real boon we received incredible feedback which was incorporated into the final product. Having a number of paid customers before a single copy was printed was also a nice side result!
DS: Who are the writers that have inspired you on your journey?
BG: Wow, there are so many! Here’s a smattering that come to mind at the moment: Dr. Seuss, Peter Drucker, Salman Rushdie, Herman Hesse, Paulo Coehlo, Lao Tzu, Michael Lewis, Malcolm Gladwell.
DS: What advise would you give to budding authors reading this interview?
BG: Get started, get your work out there, find co-conspirators and know that you’re on a unique path. There is no one way to make it happen!
On a more tactical note, consider self-publishing. Finding a publisher is a laborious process and you will be asked to market your book with minimal resources and little to no financial payoff. Self-publishing (a form of bootstrapping!) will put you in the driver’s seat and unlock your creativity. The Internet is an incredible tool you can use to research, promote and sell your book.
DS: Could you tell the readers a little more about some of the other major projects that you are currently working on?
BG: Like you, I am passionate about entrepreneurship. More specifically, the form of entrepreneurship called ‘Bootstrapping’. In fact, one of my talks is on ‘How to Bootstrap Your Company.’ There’s a myth out there that great companies need a ton of startup capital to get going. The reality is that many great companies like Virgin, Microsoft and Dell, were all started with very little money. A couple of years ago, I realized that not only was there no voice for Bootstrapping, there was not much of a community of support. So I gathered a few of my friends for beers at a local pub in Austin and thus Bootstrap Austin was started. Serendipitously, I met an incredible Maven, Darius Mahdjoubi, who studies Bootstrapping. We use Darius’ model to organize the group and teach bootstrappers the ‘rules’ of the game. The Bootstrap Network is now 450-strong in Austin and has expanded to other cities in the US and India.
Other projects include a 2-man play I co-wrote and acted in with my friend, Kert Peterson. I also love composing music and have recorded some of my songs. I think the world of Peter Gabriel and hope to work with him some day.
DS: How do you ‘find the time’ to devote energy to so many different projects?
BG: By working with others and enrolling them in my endeavors! Every project I’ve done has involved at least one other key ‘Dance partner’. Indeed, this is one of the big discoveries in The Human Fabric: no one who has achieved anything great did it alone. The myth of the lone inventor, entrepreneur, author, musician is just that a myth. They all seek out dance partners or are lucky enough to recognize them when they show up. And usually, it is someone whose core energy is opposite to theirs! Think Bono (Evangelist) and the Edge (Maven) with U2; or Steve Jobs (Evangelist) and Steve Wozniak (Maven) with Apple Computer. Something magical happens when we bring others into our game and we truly get more done in the process.
I have been extremely fortunate in finding amazing dance partners and seek them out as a matter of course. When I find them, I keep exploring until we find the project we’re meant to work on. Dave and I were playing music together before we embarked on writing THF!
DS: What do you think it takes for people to live an inspired life?
BG: It takes the belief in yourself and the commitment to endure the inevitable ‘Valleys of Death’. Nothing great comes without trials and tribulations. The Universe likes to make sure that we are truly committed before giving us what it is that we desire. We will hear from all quarters how it can’t be done. It is up to us to keep going and cross the valley!
I will add that it also takes a trust in the Universe. We are all truly part of a great Oneness. Knowing this means that we don’t have to have all the answers, that our dreams are a co-created and the resources we need will indeed be supplied to us along the way.

Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho! It’s off to Yoga I go!

Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho! It’s off to Yoga I go!

Can we be as harmonic as those seven fictional characters on their way to mine their day away when we have a back ache? Can we obtain relief or do we have to endure a day of aches and pains while on the clock?

An article I recently viewed on the website, indicates that back pain is the second leading reason people miss work. Truck drivers repeatedly have to deal with back pain from the continuous vibration of the spine while behind the wheel. Heavy lifting of patients and children puts nurses and parents at considerable risk. Statistics obtained from reveal that in the U.S., nursing ranks as one of the top 10 occupations for work-related musculoskeletal disorders. And, an estimated 12 to 18 percent of nurses wind up leaving their profession due to chronic back pain.

Now it’s understood that the career we choose can have an adverse effect on our physical health. You can sit behind a desk all day long in air-conditioning, you can drive a tractor-trailer down Route 66 daily, or work in the hospital emergency room. Simultaneously, you are putting severe strain on your neck and back. Can we take the time to heal ourselves before our issues escalate? Can we do something to alleviate the pain if it is already present? Is there anything we can do?

What is Yoga? It’s a system of exercises practiced for thousands of years as used to promote control of the body and mind.

Why Yoga? Because it can help. It has consistently been used to cure and prevent back pain by enhancing strength and flexibility. As many practitioners can attest, Yoga can offer effective healing that’s relatively free of side effects. The slow movements and gentle pressures reach deep into troubled joints. Additionally, the easy stretches in conjunction with deep breathing exercises relieve the tension that binds up muscles and tightens joints. Yoga is exercise and relaxation rolled up into one.

Who is a candidate? Each year, millions of Americans suffer from debilitating back pain. Both acute and long-term stress can lead to muscle tension and exacerbate back problems. Despite Western medicine’s phenomenal advances and powerful technology, two of the most commonly prescribed solutions—painkillers and surgery—do little to address the underlying causes of pain and can potentially cause side effects. In truth, a one-size-fits-all solution is impossible given that the causes and manifestations of pain—arthritis, strained ligaments, scoliosis, and herniated disks, to name a few—vary widely.

How does Yoga assist pain management? Yoga helps reduce pain by helping the brain regulate the secretion of natural painkillers into the body. Breathing exercises commonly used in Yoga can also help reduce pain. Muscles tend to relax when you exhale, because of this lengthening your time of exhalation can help produce relaxation and reduce tension. Maintaining a certain awareness of ones own breathing helps to achieve calmer, slower respiration and assist in relaxation and pain management.

What do I do to get started? First, rule out potential serious causes of the back pain. See your primary care physician and speak to her/him of your concerns. He will know how to proceed from there to investigate the cause of your back pain. Then, also inquire as to whether or not it is safe for you to practice Yoga as part of your recovery program.

Treat the injury with extra care. When you are in a lot of pain, usually the tissues are inflamed, it’s critical that you proceed at a slow pace. If you work in an aggressive fashion in order to improve your strength or flexibility too early on, it can cause you even more pain.

Looking for an experienced teacher with substantial training and experience should be your next course of action. A Yoga therapist will assist you by creating a program that is specific to your needs and limitations, especially those pertaining to your injury and medical condition. They will observe your form and practice, and track how you respond to the exercises. He or she will gauge which elements are likely to be helpful and determine whether modifications are necessary.

Studies have shown that strict bed rest can cause you more harm than good. Go ahead and try breathing exercises and practice a gentle asana as soon as you experience pain.

Stomach crunches are often prescribed by doctors in order to prevent recurring episodes of back pain. Looking at this from a yogic perspective this is imprecise. By doing to many crunches or ab exercises you can increase the tightness in the hip flexors, and potentially making the back problems worst. With Yoga, the approach is to examine which muscles need to be strengthened and which ones need to be stretched, and finally designing a program that would work on those specific needs.

Do avoid poses that worsen or aggravate your problem. If you have a lumbar disk problem, be careful with forward bends, especially those that include some form of a twist. Also, during transitions take care, attention tends to wander. Sudden changes of position should be avoided and stepping rather than jumping should be the standard.

Lastly, make certain to consult your physician before proceeding with any exercise program, including Yoga. Also, if Yoga is approved for you be sure to receive proper training from a qualified Yoga instructor.

Choosing Wheelchairs for Kids

Choosing Wheelchairs for Kids

Take a Team Approach Before Buying
No parent should try to choose a chair for their child all by themselves,” says Chris Seiberlich. “It’s not that they aren’t qualified to make decisions, but there are too many to be made by any one person. You have to think about a huge spectrum of issues.
Seiberlich is a physical therapist at Children’s Clinics for Rehabilitative Services in Tucson , Ariz. She and her partner, Kimberly Becerril, an occupational therapist, are discussing how to choose and properly fit a wheelchair.
“For instance,” Becerril says, “one of the most fundamental issues in choosing a chair is transportation. How will the chair be moved from home to school? If the answer is in the back of a station wagon, then a power chair is out. Even with a van, a power chair is going to need a ramp, because it’s too heavy to lift in. A lot of our kids would benefit from a power chair, but unless the transportation issue can be solved, it won’t be the right choice.”
Becerril knows a number of children who have power chairs who leave them at school, and use a manual chair at home.
“During the process of choosing a chair, we do a lot of transfer analysis,” Seiberlich says. “We want to know who’s going to be doing them (transfers), and we want the parents to demonstrate how they’re doing them. We can suggest ways to make it easier, such as use of a transfer board, or a Hoyer lift in appropriate situations.
“Most parents who’ve never seen a board are surprised by what a difference they can make,” she adds. “Still, if they are lifting the child and the chair several times a day, they are at a big risk for developing back problems. We had one mother with bruises all over her legs from constantly lifting the chair. Choosing a lighter chair, and one with some removable hardware, can make a big difference.”
Seiberlich and Becerril note that they can’t make all the decisions regarding the choice of a chair, either.
“We want the involvement of those people who see the child on a regular basis,” Becerril says.
“That means the parents, of course, because they know the child best. But we also want the school involved, especially the teacher or therapist who sees the child daily functioning outside the home. The issues at school can be quite different from those at home.”
Becerril says that they also want the chair supplier involved, to tell them what’s available. “We’ll describe the need, and the supplier can describe what they have to meet it. We can make mistakes if we do it ourselves, but if we have the whole team, we can cover all the bases.”
Lifestyle and Environment
What’s the right style of chair? While this will depend on individual needs and preferences, Becerril offers some important guidelines.
“Lots of kids want the sports frame look: It’s got a low profile and looks great. However, these frames are rigid: they can’t be folded, and they can’t grow with the child. So we wouldn’t recommend one of these at least until they are finished growing. Even then, the transportation issue remains a problem.”
Seiberlich adds, “We also would never recommend a chair without removable armrests or footrests. One of our clients who got a chair with rigid footrests went from independent transfers to requiring two people to move him. Luckily, we were able to recycle the chair to someone for whom it made more sense.”
When it’s time to choose individual components, Seiberlich and Becerril want to hear about lifestyle, terrain and environment.
“We can choose the wheels based on how rough the ground is around the home,” Seiberlich says. “Here in the desert, we recommend airless inserts. One good cactus spine and you’ve got a flat! Back East, we’ve got to consider the mud, the snow and the rain.”
“We also want to know about the inside of the home: Will an otherwise ideal chair have trouble getting through narrow doorways? If so, and there’s no money to redo the home, we’ve got to change our thinking,” Becerril says.
Social and educational factors come into play here as well. “Is the chair appropriate for the school setting?” Seiberlich says. “For instance, does the height of the chair put the child above or below classmates? Can we make small changes to get it looking more streamlined, if that’s what the child wants? If we can think of these things up front, it can save a lot of time and expense later on.”
Growing With the Child
Both the X-shaped cross brace (black) and the front frame sections (blue) can be replaced as a child grows.
And expense is a huge issue: A manual wheelchair with custom seating can cost $5,000, while a power chair might be four times that. A really good cushion alone might be $300 or $400. Becerril notes that most of this is covered by insurance for many families. “And if you buy the right kind of chair, one that can grow with the child, that investment can last 10 or 12 years. This is the child’s mobility, and his independence. It’s important to get it right.”
What does it mean for a chair to grow with the child? The idea may be new to those who think of the clunky “one-size-fits-all” sling back chairs as the only type there is. Most chairs today can be widened by changing the cross brace supports underneath, and lengthened by replacing the front frame sections that hold the leg supports.
“With this system, we can take a child from a very young age through the teen-age years with the same chair. We can grow a chair from a seat that measures 10 inches by 10 inches to one that is 18 by 18. While there is some expense along the way, it’s still cheaper than replacing the chair. And the frames are warranted for life,” Becerril says. “Make sure you choose a color you’re not going to be sick of in a few years!”
Seating and Support
One of the most critical decisions regarding chair options, and one for which professional input is most crucial, is the choice of a seating cushion.
“The basis for good seating posture starts in the pelvis,” Seiberlich says. “We’re looking to distribute the weight over as big an area as possible, for support, for comfort and to prevent skin breakdown.”
She notes that pressure sores, or decubitis, are a critical concern with prolonged seating. For those who aren’t in the wheelchair for many hours at a time, a flat seat may be appropriate. For more prolonged use, or when stability in the chair becomes an issue, a high-quality foam cushion becomes preferable. Other alternatives include air-filled or gel-filled cushions.
“Children with scoliosis (curvature of the spine), whether or not it has been stabilized with spinal fusion, may have some left-right tilt in the pelvis,” Seiberlich says. “In such cases, we can use the seating system to minimize the effects of the tilt. Some of the kids are still flexible, so by raising the lower side, we may be able to level out the pelvis. On the other hand, if the tilt is fixed, we’ll support the higher side, so it takes up some of the weight. Distributing that weight is the key.”
Scoliosis also figures into the choice of the back. “We can’t always use a standard flat back or sling back. We may need a molded back to match up to the spinal curvature. Again, we’re trying to get more surface contact to lessen pressure,” Seiberlich says.
Lateral supports may be an important element as well. “If the child does not have the trunk strength to maintain their upright posture, we need to do it with laterals. Even with spinal fusion, they may need them to help prevent tipping.”
Becerril notes that a “tilt-in-space” chair may be appropriate for someone with very little trunk strength. This type of chair maintains the sitting posture, but tilts back to relieve some of the anti-gravity work for a while, combating fatigue. Recliner chairs, which allow a prone position, are used more often for those unable to tolerate the normal angles of seated posture.
Final Fitting
Once the chair has been ordered, Becerril says, expect a couple months delay before it arrives. “Authorization takes time, and typically we’re dealing with several different companies, and it’s a custom product. Nothing related to wheelchairs ever happens quickly.”
Once the chair arrives, the hands-on fitting process may take two to three hours, Becerril explains. “Things come up you can’t foresee. Also, we want to show parents the signs of an improper fit. It’s not something you do once and it’s done: Kids grow fast, and their condition can change fast, so you need to monitor the fit constantly.”
Seiberlich adds, “We always want parents to be checking for redness, because this indicates too much pressure. They need to check the buttocks, the back, the feet, and the back of the legs. Anywhere the chair is making contact, there’s the potential for too much pressure.”
She offers an important rule of thumb: “There should be no more than three fingers worth of space between the front of the seat and the back of the legs. With any more than this, the seat is not providing enough thigh support, and the chair may dig into the legs. It also makes sitting more difficult, as you don’t get the same amount of surface holding you up. Also, you need to make sure that the footrests are low enough to get full contact for the whole thigh.” There should be at least half an inch between the hips and the side of the chair. The laterals shouldn’t be too tight, and shouldn’t dig into the armpits.
“Parents can make these adjustments, if they know what to look for,” Seiberlich says. “But we like to see the child in his chair at least once a year, especially if he’s still growing. And anytime they think there’s a problem they can’t fix, we want them to come in.”
In addition to monitoring the fit of the chair, Seiberlich stresses the importance of regular maintenance. “The chair should be washed regularly, using a spray cleaner. Most cushions are washable, or have washable covers. A thorough inspection of the whole chair once a week is a good idea: Check the brakes, look for loose hardware, and check the tires and seat.”
Becerril points out that change in temperature can change the inflation pressure of tires and air-filled or gel-filled seats. Simple problems can easily be fixed at home. More involved ones can be taken care of by the vendor, who will almost always do maintenance for free.
Finally, Seiberlich returns to the transportation issue to stress an important safety rule.
“Chairs are generally not crash-tested, and the pelvic strap that keeps you in the seat is not as strong as a seat belt. We recommend that a child be on the car seat, strapped in using the car’s seat and shoulder belts.” If needed for lateral support, a chest harness can be used as well.

Discover Which Minerals You Need to Neutralize Your body’s Acids

Discover Which Minerals You Need to Neutralize Your physical body’s Acids

Every portion of you is actually helped make off minerals – your bones, tissue design, lymph liquid, canals, body organs, cells, muscular tissue, hair, etc. You could not stay without minerals. Your physical body does not create minerals.

Where do you receive your minerals? You acquire all of them from vegetables and fruit products as well as good supplements. Because just 10% of the people consume sufficient veggies and fruits, the remainder from you are deficient in minerals.If our team consume enough vegetables and fruit products, why do our company must have a mineral supplement?

Long period of time ago when the ground was rich in minerals, veggie and also fruit products were actually jammed pack along with minerals. Fruits and veggies were not decided on early, icy, waxed, radiated, or held in argon gas. Those which consumed these veggies and fruits obtained an appropriate supply from minerals and seldom possesses a deficiency.

Today the contrast holds true. You and also I can not obtain sufficient minerals from eating fruits and veggies. Currently our company eat a lot more cooked vegetables, more vegetables in packages, fruits and vegetables that are waxed, as well as vegetables coming from various other countries not refined properly.Today, our company have to supplement our consuming habits along with a real-time mineral liquid to create up for the absence from minerals in the really good meals and processed food our experts consume.

Low Back pain – Ayurvedic Management

Reduced Pain in the back – Ayurvedic Control

Reduced neck and back pain is just one of the best popular ache conditions today.It is actually a chronic disorder characterized by a chronic boring or even pain each the lesser back. It may be likewise connected with burning, rigidity, tingling or even prickling with the discomfort shooting down the buttocks and the legs.
When our company stand, the lesser back functionalities to hold many of the weight of the physical body. When our experts bend, present or spin at the waistline, the reduced back is actually involved in the motion. Low back pain is commonly sped up through moving, elevating things or turning from the waistline. Severe ache in the low spine may be rather devastating to individuals. Discomfort in the lower back restrains activity and decreases work ability and top quality of fulfillment from day-to-day lifestyle as well as switches life into an agony.
Survey indicates that 70 per-cent of people have to deal with low pain in the back at some time in their lifestyles. The greatest fee of back pain occurs among the 45 to 64 year age. The likelihood from low back pain is actually more significant one of women. In 90 per cent from the individuals, reduced neck and back pain solves within 6 weeks, i.e. personal confined.

Any adjustment from ordinary vertebral curve can easily pressure or draw muscles. This triggers improved muscle contraction, which leads to pain. Low neck and back pain may result as a result of health problems like osteoporosis, scoliosis, vertebral constriction. Strain or even stress of muscles or ligaments in the place could additionally materialize in reduced neck and back pain. Other feasible triggers consist of fibromyalgia as well as curable or even malignant tumours. A loss or even draft to the back can easily strain or tear cells around the spine, or maybe break a bone triggering neck and back pain. Absence of exercise or even incorrect workout could likewise bring about low neck and back pain. Excessive body weight or over weight additionally is a source of reduced neck and back pain.

One of the most common procedure is actually a discectomy, which entails removing the soft gel-like component in the disc. This method returns the disc to a much more ordinary shape, relieving the stress on the nerve. the neurosurgeon can easily also carry out a foraminotomy, which is actually a method developed to grow the opening the nerve journeys with.
Medicines and knives don’t constantly operate because coming from 60% to 90% of health condition is actually not the outcome from building accident, yet somewhat from the mind-body response to stress
Ayurvedic Point of view
Ayurveda holds that reduced back pain is actually an end result from vitiation from among the 3 principal ‘doshas’. ‘Kateegraham’/’Prishtasoola’ or reduced back pain is actually an indication from Vata stress and bone tissue and muscle mass weakness.
Ayurvedic Procedure
Treatment in Ayurveda is actually to deliver the vitiated ‘dosha’ back to the condition from balance and thereby to the condition from health. For managing reduced back pain, internal as well as exterior treatments are performed. Natural plannings like ‘Asthavargam’ are actually administered internally.

Diagnosing Back Problems
