The 5 Tibetan Rites are a series of movements or exercises that stimulate energy flow throughout your body. Everything we know about The Five Tibetan Rites comes from a book written in 1939 by Peter Kelder that chronicles the search for the fountain of youth by a retired British Army officer, Colonel Bradford. His journey led him to the Himilaya mountains where the natives told him the legends of a group of Lamas, or Tibetan monks of a remote monastery who knew the secrets of the fountain of youth. He was intrigued by their stories of old men who mysteriously regained health, strength and vigor upon finding and entering the monastery.
Well, Colonel Bradford finally found the monastery and trained with the monks for two years. Upon his return, he shared his experiences of the daily habits of the monks and their anti-aging methods. The Five Tibetan Rites are central to their secrets.
An edited version of the original book is available for free online, and this short book makes for enjoyable reading and is chock full of wonderful, healthful information. Especially helpful is the in depth instruction on how to make use of these movement exercises. In fact, they are much more than exercises, that’s why they call them rites. The movements stimulates spinning of your energy points (also called vorteces or chakras). And therein may lie the secret to a more rejuvinated, healthful mind and body.
I perform the Rites regularly and they are great for beginners (there is plenty of instruction on how to get started) as well as more seasoned athletes and fitness enthusiasts. If you need my help in implementing them, feel free to call, email or stop by the office.

The Addams Family was one of my all time favorite TV shows! I would literally burst out laughing at the absurd comedy performed by this taleted group of actors. While the dialogue was quite witty, the physical comedy took the cake for me and always provided me with a great belly laugh. (Probably why I loved the Three Stooges as well.)
You’ve probably noticed that not only does a good belly laugh feel great, but it cuts through the daily stress and changes your physical state from one of tension and stress to a state of joy and relaxed ease.
A belly breath forces you to breath deeply down to your center, that place thats located an inch or two below your navel and an inch or two inside your belly. The “power center” is the physical center of mass of your body, but also representes the center of your being. Breathing to your center puts you into “the Zone”, that physiological state where you perform at your best in a relaxed but energized state.
This is probably the reason why I’ve been obsessed by a dumb but hilarious video re-edit that someone named Wally posted on YouTube and Facebook. It’s an Addam’s Family clip set to cool music, and I ‘ve been watching it every morning lately. (Which may seem strange but I don’t care, I love it!)
No matter how I feel, it gets me laughing and brings my breath and energy down to my center, empowering me with good feelings as I get into the Zone! It’s a short silly clip, but I hope you enjoy it. Remember, there’s a reason we say that laughter is the best medicine. Get your daily dosage today by watching this clip!

Please let me know how you liked this clip and if you got the same belly aching reaction that I got from it by emailing me back!
