Completing the Seven: A Guidebook for Transforming Your Life

Arlene Curley, author of the newly released Completing the Seven, will hold a book signing and discussion from 5 to 7 p.m., January 20, at the Institute for Holistic Studies. In the book, Curley explores life’s journey and a deep sense of alignment with its purpose, presenting an engaging path of spiritual, alchemical and transformational practices to guide readers into discovering their true selves.

Curley comments, “Completing the Seven, along with its accompanying program of study, Oneray, is my legacy of service - the wisdom that my own Path has taught me. I have realized that truth and goodness are already within a person, but each individual must come to know them as a result of living. To know the truth is to become conscious of the Infinite.... All of humankind is unified in this way - the journey which every person on this Earth is obliged to take. How easily the emptiness of life could overtake us if we do not remain vigilant.”

Cost: Donation. Location: Greenshire Arts Consortium, Institute for Holistic Studies, 3620 Sterner Mill Rd., Quakertown. For more information, call 215-538-0976 or visit

Free Trial T’ai Chi Chih Classes in Two Locations

Next Step Strategies is offering two free T’ai Chi Chih classes: the first is scheduled for 10:30 a.m., January 26, in Langhorne; the second is set for 1:30 p.m., February 2, in Morrisville. T’ai Chi Chih is an easy-to-learn, non-martial form of moving meditation that does not require physical fitness or coordination. Its purpose is to circulate and balance Chi, which is said to be the vital energy life force with which we are all born.

Next Step Strategies was founded to educate and encourage individuals to discover their body’s natural healing ability, and teaches practices that include T’ai Chi Chih, Seijaku, qigong, Reiki, and Donna Eden Energy Medicine. Owner Siobhan Hutchinson states, “If you are looking to start the new year with more energy and serenity, try a class in T’ai Chi Chih. Learning it would be an excellent way to commit to improving your health and increasing your happiness now.”

Cost: free or discounted. Locations: Jan. 26, Medicine in Balance, 940 Town Center Dr., Langhorne; Feb. 2, Riverside Chiropractic and Vitality Center, 300 W. Trenton Ave., Morrisville. To register and learn how to get a discount on an eight-week class, call 609-752-1048 or email [email protected].

The show airs between 7 and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, on the Rense Radio Network; but archives, YouTube videos and blog posts can be accessed from the website, where photos, graphics and additional information will complement the original broadcast.

Inner Spa offers Three-Day Suero Cleanse

Inner Spa, in Newtown, now carries the three-day Suero Cleanse, developed by renowned natural health expert Jordan Rubin, founder and CEO of Garden of Life and Beyond Organics. Suero Cleanse features SueroViv, a certified organic, alkalizing cultured whey beverage that replaces meals throughout the cleanse and contains nutrients, probiotics, enzymes and an infusion of organic essential oils. The creators of Suero Cleanse include cultured whey because, they say, it supports the body’s intestinal health, hydrates and provides essential minerals to the body, and supports the functions of the liver, kidneys and colon.

Proponents of regular internal cleansing propose that poor health conditions, like fatigue, joint discomfort, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, an inability to lose weight and brain fog, can be linked to toxicity of the colon, liver, kidneys and lymphatic system. Cleansing products, such as Suero Cleanse, are intended to detoxify these systems.

Inner Spa is a holistic day spa featuring an array of detoxification, cleansing and therapeutic services featuring only natural and organic products. Incorporating green practices into every aspect of its business, Inner Spa is eco-friendly and one of the few local facilities to offer colon hydrotherapy.

Location: 4 Terry Dr., Atrium Bldg., Ste. 12, Newtown. For more information, call 215-968-9000, email [email protected], or visit and
