"Discernment is the primary tool for dissolving the Truth." 
~  Christopher Wallis, from Tantra Illuminated
Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.
Most of us resist change, align with the familiar, and are not conscious of our relationship to self.  We adapt to survive, but the adaptation takes its toll on our physical, mental, and emotional health.  Do you consider yourself worthy of health?  Learn how your health begins with choices that are rooted in a positive relationship to self.  Sounds simple?  Read more...

The Ommani Practitioner Group is Expanding

Beginning in May, we are happy to announce the addition of two more practitioners:

First, we are very pleased to announce the return of massage therapy!  Tammy Winkelman, LMT, RN, is becoming a member of our amazing group of complementary practitioners.  She is a registered nurse and licensed massage therapist and body worker (her first love). She will be offering traditional and therapeutic massage techniques for soft tissue and joints, providing treatment of medical conditions, injuries, and/or wellness maintenance. Of course, we all know massage just makes our bodies feel good. Depending upon client need, she offers different massage methods that may include deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point, and cupping techniques.  

We are also excited to report that Eric Ehrke, LCSW, LMFT, psychotherapist, author, and speaker is joining Ommani.  Eric has over 30 years of diverse experience, primarily in the Milwaukee area, combining modern psychological practices, eternal principles from ancient philosophers, and original healing modalities. In 2017, Eric published Henosis, The Psychological Wisdom and Eternal Principles That Lead to Lasting Peace and Wellbeing.

Watch for articles in future newsletters by these two dynamic practitioners and give our office a call (262.695.5311) if you are interested in speaking to either of them to discuss your healthcare concerns and/or schedule an appointment.  

Be Kind to Yourself This 
Spring-Practice  Ahimsa

Shelley Carpenter, PT, RYT, RM

Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word that can be practiced and applied to much more than yoga.  So what is the meaning of this ethical and behavioral instructive and how can we use its simple meaning to harmonize our inner and outer worlds?

The title says it all! Some of us can not do without it. But is chocolate really good for you and how do we eat it responsibly?
Workshops and Classes:

"Let's Be Real"...How to Live an Authentic Life - 
with Mary Brill, LCSW
Approved and highly recommended by 
Drs. Rose Kumar, MD and Boris Matthews, PhD, LCSW  
A workshop beginning September 7, 2018

You get to a point where the old life no longer works. It's possible it never did. Maybe
you ask yourself, "what's next?" The life that you've known, no longer seems to fit. Or
something feels off and you wonder if you're alone in feeling this way...

This group offers you an opportunity to open your heart, enliven your body, engage your
mind, and deepen @ soul level. The possibilities are limitless when group energy
collides with intent. It takes courage to express your dreams, desires, and what you
yearn for. It involves accepting support to bring your aspirations into form. It requires
clearing obstacles that get in your way.

This is a group to explore possibilities; to consider stretching your limits, to think outside
the box, to reflect on what needs to be released and to explore untapped potential.

I invite you to explore with us. I invite you to find the Real you.  Won't you join us?

Dates: 9/7/18- 11/16/18
Day: 6 Friday's
Time: 10:30AM-12:30PM
Fee: $95/session
