Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the conditioned, thinking mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. There are many different meditation methods. At the core of meditation is the goal to focus and eventually quiet your mind. As you progress, you will find that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, accessing an inner calm no matter what's going on around you. But first, you have to learn to tame your mind...

Weary children sleep late
school awaits
predictable moments
no longer apply....


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Our friend Alexandra has a way with words. Besides the fact she's an author of Indigo's Bracelet, she has put together a poem of wild words, bizarre pyramid building that has fun dripping off every word. We were laughing and falling off our seats when we read her poem "Mediation on Spilled Milk". We love how she takes an every day event that could have been turned into a negative action and turned it into a learning moment and she allowed the artist in her to turn it into a positive event.

The first album “Purusha” – Relaxation & Yoga Music – might be interesting for people who normally turn yellow when they think of space-cadet-yoga-hippy types. This album is a single 60 minute sound-scape that is perfect for creating a calming zenned out vibe...


Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Music offers healing vibrations as a restorative tool in Ayurveda. I am always seeking quality recordings of relaxing songs, mantras and chants for Yoga or meditation. Alex Duncan offers three unique CDs of soothing music to help align the mind, body and spirit. Namaste.

Holistic exercise may sound confusing. Basically, holistic means combining exercise that helps develop your body and mind. For instance, a gentle exercise routine that combines stretching, visualization, breathing techniques and meditation is considered to be a holistic exercise...

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


by Dennis Hunter

"...We modern people have become tragically disembodied, alienated from the most basic level of our own experience as human beings.... Most of us have lost the felt sense of what it is to be embodied, to experience the world in and through the medium of this material and energetic body into which we have been born..."


Editor's Note: As Dennis points out in this great column, it's very easy to live our lives "above the neck." The body, however, always lives in the present.

My first experience with poke (Phytolacca americana) was in my teacher’s back yard in central Virginia, in early fall my first year of herbal studies. She wanted us to do a plant journey. In our process, we sat with whatever plant we felt calling us, observed it, drew it, and then tasted part of it, before “journeying” through meditation on what it had to offer...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Important note to our readers: Poke may be a restricted herb in some places. In Canada, for example, it is only sold to qualified herbalists who have signed a dangerous botanicals form. As always, it's important to keep in mind that not all plants are suitable for all people. Some people, for example, are allergic to plants in the Asteraceae family and do not tolerate chamomile. When in doubt, get more information. Know the cautions and contraindications of the plant and adhere to them.

Co-Editor of Books for Healing 

Being kind can change how you view the world.  Imagine for a moment than instead of thinking what is best for you, you thought of what is best for those around you.  What if you spent time being thankful for what you have in your life rather than complaining about what upset you?  What would the world be like if every thought you had were born out of kindness?





Editor's Note from Janet Gillett: Ajahn Brahm wrote “Kindfulness Meditation” to remind us that kindness is the heart of living.  Bringing more kindness to ourselves and the world allows relaxation and peacefulness to lead to healing.
