Playing small hurts. It not only requires constant attention and energy to tuck in and hide who you really are, but by doing so, you are also denying the world the unique gift that being you offers. Think of yourself as a piece of colored glass in a magnificent stained glass window. If you block the light coming through you, a shadow is cast on those around you. Instead of contributing to the whole, you have taken away from it...
Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Mimi describes the price she paid for playing it safe and small. She used the practice of self-love to move beyond her depression and self-hatred. She encourages you to become your authentic self and share your uniqueness with the world as you bring more self-acceptance into your life. Self-love is the greatest gift you can give yourself!

As an acupuncturist, I do a lot of myth debunking. It’s understandable.

Editor's Note: This is a fun, easy-to-grasp article that explains five common acupuncture myths.

So much gets revealed to me through posture evaluations. Standing in front of me is a person – usually feeling pain, loss, fear, anger, and with or without acceptance of the distortions that they have become...

When I first started practising herbal medicine in South Wales 35 years ago, I was struck by my easy acceptance...
Editor's Note from Dylan Warren-Davis: There is currently a growing trend in biotech companies trying to grab hold of key medicinal herbs and patent them. However it is important to see that herbs belong to the culture that has traditionally used them and that they belong to their common heritage of the people, this is why it is important to respect herbal knowledge within the culture from which it has evolved. A Welsh Herbal presents the herbs used within the Welsh herbal tradition.

Sometimes the anxiety just comes for me, the collision of my reality and the way I think it should be. It’s a mental train wreck that keeps me stuck. I cling to the dreams, the shoulds, the appearance of a gap...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This article is short and sweet with a pow punch. The message... accept today as much as you can. If it is just as you wanted it to be or a piece of you know what! It is all somehow ok and perfect in its imperfection. The last sentence is great!
