LUNCH & LEARN -- (at CRMC, 2626 Care Drive)

  • October 24, 2017, Noon to 1 PM -- James Stockwell, M.D. presents:
         Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

    TMS Therapy can offer relief from Major Depression in just six weeks. Often individuals have suffered for many years, tried multiple anti-depressants, and experienced bothersome side effects. They come searching for a safe and effective alternative to drugs. Others do not even want to start anti-depressants but, instead, seek TMS Therapy.

    At TMS Patient Care, many gratifying comments are heard after therapy: “I can now feel joy; the cloud has lifted; I can get things done; I now have hope; and my family life is much better.” One recent patient remarked, “You have no idea what a relief it was being off medications. I am now on the other side where people without depression live.”

    The NeuroStar TMS Therapy System has been FDA approved since 2008. Strong, painless magnetic pulses stimulate areas of the brain that are not functioning normally in patients with Major Depression. The patient receives treatment partially reclined, in a comfortable chair, in a peaceful setting. There is no need for sedation. Patients finishing a therapy session can immediately resume their normal activities.

    TMS is also being utilized for treating anxiety and is currently being studied for use in many other brain disorders.


    As a physician, James Stockwell, M.D., has been on the “other side” when a family member developed serious mental health challenges. His interest in NeuroStar TMS Therapy began when his family member had successful relief of depression after undergoing TMS Therapy in Atlanta.

    He has always placed access to quality care for all as a continual high-priority mission. Several local psychiatrists encouraged him to open a TMS Center to provide local convenient access. The TMS Patient Care Consultant Psychiatrists perform the TMS consultations and initiation of NeuroStar TMS Therapy. They have had additional training to become TMS Certified Psychiatrists.

    Of course those completely on the “other side” are those suffering with mental health issues. Dr. Stockwell personally experiences warm satisfaction and joy seeing depressed patients, undergoing TMS Therapy, travel back from the “other side” as they respond or go into remission.

    His identity, for most of his career, has been that of a practicing gastroenterologist. Upon retirement from the Digestive Disease Clinic, which he founded, he performed endoscopic procedures and consultations at three rural Critical Access Hospitals in Madison, Blountstown, and Apalachicola. An important part of his rural service was to continue his longstanding mission of colon cancer prevention.

  • Drugless Innovations in Injury and Pain Relief: An Introduction to Quintessential Applications

    The adaptive effects of injuries (ancient and recent) will be discussed in light of their influence on muscle imbalance, and acute and chronic pain. Specific assessment and treatment procedures will be demonstrated. The importance of a physiologically-based, basic-science-driven neurological hierarchy for the ordered application of clinical procedures will be presented.

    Forever and forever, there is Energy. It is always with us. It unites our need to release others, it unites us with new articles of clothing and it finishes our words and sentences. The best medicine, the best times of our lives, the truth that we hear inside, are all uses of Energy, and Energy as medicine. This Energy is at our fingertips, always, and ready to do our bidding. In this presentation, we will explore new, creative ways to create a magical life. We will learn a ritual of releasing stuck energy, and creating the flow of healing love.


  • January 9, 2018, 7 PM (at 616 Universal Drive) -- Bonnie McLean O.M.D., A.P., M.A., B.S.:
         Return of the Soul to Medicine
  • Dr. McLean will be sharing her 50-year-long search for the soul in medicine. As a child of a physician/surgeon and nurse then an RN herself, she spent the first half of her life immersed in Western Medicine. The past 30-plus years have been spent studying and practicing Natural Medicine, mostly under the umbrella of Chinese Medicine, Hypnosis, and Guided Imagery. She will discuss how she currently practices what she calls Integrative Holistic Medicine in which she works with body, mind, and spirit incorporating energy and shamanic healing with the Natural Medicine practices. She believes she is part of a collective movement that is increasingly combining healing with medicine and bringing back the soul to our medicine in America.


  • February 13, 2018, 7 PM (at 616 Universal Drive) -- Reverend Laura Huff
  • Reverend Laura Huff has been doing Lightwork in the Tallahassee area for many years. Recently she felt the guidance to create a non-profit corporation, entitled Lightweavers International, Inc. This is a spiritual ministry dedicated to the development of the potentiality in all, the Light Within. This ministry will endeavor to fulfill this purpose through:

  • Teaching classes from a set of modules that she has written through inner guidance. These modules are called “The Light Balancing Study Series.” They have scope and sequence for solid understanding and foundation in one’s potential development. Once the foundation is set, the modules go through scope and sequence into more advanced Light Balancing Work. After completing the study series, a participant will be offered the opportunity of going on into ministerial studies, which could lead to becoming a Minister of Light. The studies are conducted like shamanic work, they are complete when the participant is ready.

  • Holding a weekly Sacred Light Circle for the participants to experience “Remembering Who We Are”. At this Sacred Light Circle, themes on potential development, Light Techniques, and Light Work for sending love and support in the Light to others will be presented.
  • Establishing a Light Family community of like-minded people who are interested in their potential development.
  • Offering Light Balancing/Healing Sessions by appointment. Light Balancing Sessions include:
     • ~  Working on spiritual, mental, and emotional Light Frequency changes, as well as physical
     • ~  Past life regression to heal the past
     • ~  Grief counseling and taking people into the Light to visit transitioned loved ones
  • Teaching a special Light Meditation for experiencing being one with the Light.
  • Plans are being formulated to do a Light Qi Gong practice (which is taught as one of the Modules), and offering Light Balancing sessions on designated Saturdays.

    There is a website:

    Planting Light Trees is being carried out to assist our Beloved Mother Earth. These trees establish a “Rooted Light Blessing” into homes. They also form a powerful Light Network.
