The 2012 end-time may be the point of no return for the Western way of excess and exploitation. It may also be the moment of opportunity for some people in the West to set a course correction for the entire planet."

In August of 2012 at the Being Yoga conference at the Omega Institute, one of my classes, with Manorama, a well-known Sanskrit teacher focused on Yoga and the Inner Warrior. She said, "Everyday we fight the inner and outer battles of life. The yogi in training fights the inner battle..."
Editor's Note from Diane Renz: I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Jim Doty at the Science of Compassion Conference summer of 2012, and recently met again at the Wisdom 2.0 conference on Technology and Mindfulness where he informed me he had just finished this interview with Eckhart Tolle on February 12, 2013.

There’s a lot of parenting advise when it comes to creating a nightly ritual of getting your children to bed, successfully. Baths, snacks, bedtime stories are usually part of those suggestions, and all good suggestions too. In our home, we’re not very strict on bedtime rituals, which in and of itself, is a ritual. Then, one day when I read something from the Dr. Wayne Dyer blog, a post from Sept 12, 2012, titled How Do You Sleep?...
A Note from Supervising Editor, Sherri Carter: About a year ago, after reading a Dr. Wayne Dyer blog post, at bedtime, I started asking my then 4 yr old son what the favorite part of his day was. It’s been a beautiful, insightful addition to our bedtime routine.
