Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Any cyclists out there?

A friend recently introduced me to the composer Eric Whitacre and his “Virtual Choir,” which has become an Internet sensation. I immediately fell in love with his music and this extraordinary concept of using the Internet for creative collaboration. Naturally, I wanted to share it and thought of including it here at ATH. Imagine my surprise (and delight) to learn that it had already been posted in the ATH Arts and Art Therapy section. I encourage you to look at it (but after you read my article, please)...

Hearing a story is like listening to music, the words falling off the teller’s tongue, onto our ears, and into our heart, setting thoughts and memories in motion. Stories are heard in the deep heart’s core and answer the burning questions that we all have. Who are we? Where did we come from? Who do we love? What have we forgotten that is important to remember?
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In this article, storyteller and mediator Mary Louise Chown reflects on her therapeutic work with story and children. She states: "Children especially need the experience of listening to stories and discovering connections with their own lives. This can strengthen their spirits for when they meet hard times, such as illness or death, or any kind of sadness or disappointment."

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Today one of my clients was struggling with forgiving and letting go of her grievances against herself,her two ex-husbands and her parents. She reminded me that forgiveness is a challenge worth tackling because it affects your state of inner peace and outer abundance. This short inspirational video describes the benefits of giving up grievances so you can have harmony in your life. The insights, music and pictures are enlightening. Enjoy!
