Youth Culture Keepers Camp 2017

Two Sets of Notes–

What happens when a child is given the wrong information about who they are… The generation parishes…

In our upcoming Youth Culture Keepers Camp, we are taking our participants on a fun and interactive journey through culturally centered literature, art, and community.

What are you waiting on to plant your seed in our upcoming 5 Day Culture Keepers Camp? 
What will your seed experience:
***Yoga and Meditation to bring focus, discipline, and clarity
***The Oral Tradition of Storytelling  to bring culture and eldership
***The Benefits of Communal Literacy to show the power of community through language and dialogue. 
And much much more…. 
One gift that can save any child’s life is the gift of reading… Particularly Black children. In addition, not only will reading save their lives, what they read will directly impact how they integrate themselves into society. If a child only reads stories that does not foster positive images of themselves, the child becomes uninterested in the foundational points of learning…. Which begins with learning how to read. 
Not learning how to read includes an emphasis on the negative school experiences of Black students, as well as statistics on the academic performance of the Black student population. Strategic tools to help educators and parents address the unique needs of Black students and ways of engaging parents to support the academic progress of their children are included in our 5 Day Youth Culture Keeper’s Camp. 
Underachievement is one of the most potent weapons that many Black students use to express their displeasure with the public school system. Let us help your student get a head start this school year….

Expanding Our Scope of CARE

CBD – Green Pain Relief

Dear TIM Community,

In the world of pain management we have new options. Well, the options are old, but now we have a new found connection to their benefits. There is a revolution occurring in the drug therapy world. The lowly hemp plant – so famous for strong rope in the days before nylon and Dacron – is surfacing as nature’s very potent anti-inflammatory. This is promising news for many of those suffering from diseases with inflammation as their root cause. Control the inflammation and the symptoms, as well as the suffering, go away.

Enter Pure-Cannaceutical Hemp Oil Products, a legal dietary supplement by Can-Tek Lab’s in Oklahoma City. Pure-Cannaceutical products are Pharmaceutical Grade Dietary Supplements containing hemp oil derived from the whole medicinal hemp plant, which delivers healthful benefits, without the psychoactive or “high” effect associated with this type of botanical. There is ZERO THC in Pure-Cannaceutical products so urine drug test screens are negative and this product is safe for those with THC allergies. This makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria some experience from High THC Cannabis.

Pure-Cannaceutical Hemp Oil Tinctures contain at least 65% CBD – the highest natural amount of CBD of any supplier in the world. The Hemp Oil Oral Tinctures are light, oily liquids that are to be delivered orally by dropper and come in a variety of strengths. The CBD Oral Spray is for intermittent use when feeling particularly stressed or anxious throughout the day. The Hemp Balm and Hemp Salve are both for topical use. The Hemp Balm is applied to painful areas and the Hemp Salve is perfect for rashes or wounds like shingles or psoriasis. There are over 30 examples of health conditions we found that show benefit from CBD use including ADHD, arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, Chronic Pain, PTSD, depression, osteoporosis, epilepsy, and more.
