"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."

Billions of cups mean billions of little plastic, worthless-after-one use, go-in-the-trash cups. And the cost doesn't seem to matter. Folgers coffee, in one of those K-cups, measures out to $50.00 a serving...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Billions of cups mean billions of little plastic, worthless-after-one use, go-in-the-trash cups. And the cost doesn't seem to matter. We can do something.
We chose this project as a class because we feel that it is important that people know about the food that they are eating, where it comes from, and what goes into it. We soon found that there are other organizations that have the same concerns we do.

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.

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.
