Mindfulness is the gentle effort to be continuously present with experience.

In professional practice since 1993, Kate Sciandra’s copious training in alternative medicine has led her to become an trusted specialist in the treatment and management of pain, stress and trauma. Her core work is an integration of the hands-on care and individual coaching and instruction in the practice of being present and mindful in order to relieve patterns of discomfort in a safe and nurturing fashion. She is committed to both private practice and group instruction in a variety of topics. She is also the developer and founder of Aurasolus Room Remedies.

Her work, Healing Presence, is the conceptual basis of which the physical expression is Ortho-Bionomy®, and Kate teaches one as the extension of the other. She also teaches Practical Meditation, an easily integrated approach to integrating a meditative practice into everyday life, Becoming a Peaceful Presence, and Cultivating the Healing Presence.

KFAI membership drives have long tails, and well after the two-week on-air portion ended contributions continue to stream in — via the mail, the Web and even walked in the door. When we officially wrapped up the Spring membership campaign on Friday, April 17, 1,166 donors had contributed $98,614 to Fresh Air Radio. Eighty-two percent of this figure has already been paid — an important consideration! Fundraising success of this magnitude only happens through the effort of our dedicated volunteers and support of our listener-members. To everyone who contributed to this Spring’s success we express our sincerest gratitude and thanks.

Don’t forget: Unlike its staff and volunteers, Fresh Air’s donation page never sleeps. You can go to www.kfai.org/donations any time to contribute to the radio station that defines “community” — KFAI Fresh Air Community Radio!
