"The psychohistorical legacy of ancient Mexico, to which the peoples of the Americans are the main heirs, could determine the fate of human life on the planet, for the better or worse. 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."

Over the last few decades, yoga has become quite popular, even trendy, outside of the Eastern Buddhist and Hindu cultures. For example, Harris Interactive Service Bureau reported in February 2012 that 16.5 million US adults practice yoga...
Editor´s Note: Most yogis will claim that yoga has many benefits, perhaps not as clearly visible at first, such as improved circulation, digestion and elimination, lowered stress and tension, improved concentration, and on, and on. All that to say, a recently published review in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry has revealed that a regular yoga practice can have positive effects on various mental health disorders, such as depression and sleep complaints, as well as improve symptoms of illnesses such as schizophrenia and ADHD. Read on to find out more!
Editor's Note: 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. Dr Doty is the founder of CCARE at Stanford University, which concerns itself with research in what will allow us to cultivate our original default and essence of who we are as human beings: kind, compassionate, and loving beings--our awareness and attention to this truth determines our health and well-being and that of our world.

In the summer of 2012, I met Mireya Gonzalez, a Chilean music therapist visiting California to learn from other music therapists in medical settings. At the time, I was working at a children’s hospital in San Francisco and we compared notes on our programs...

2012 was FULL of change for me. I stepped away from a secure job in Corporate America to pursue my dreams of running my own company and doing the things I love every day. I moved to New York City, a place that I had only dreamed of living. But the reality looked much different with no job, no guarantee of success...

What do we mean by diet roller coaster and how do we get off of it?
Have you ever forced your weight down, then have it creep back up, force your weight down again, then watch it creep back up?...
Editor's Note from Neda Smith: It seems like every time you turn around there is a new diet. And your friend or family member is trying it out, thinking this just might be the diet to help them lose the unwanted weight. But if there was a way to get off of the roller coaster ride? What if there was a way to keep you nourished and balanced without deprivation? Katharine Pike is introducing us nourishment through our 5 senses.
Editor's Note: Some of our readers may have seen the British Paraorchestra featured in the closing ceremonies of the Paralympics 2012. I wanted to take this time to really spotlight an incredibly inspiring and creative group of young individuals. I believe creativity and motivation has officially been redefined!

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?...
Editor's Note: 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.
