I became a relationship researcher to help me understand and accept my own relationship hang ups. Most of these hang-ups probably originated in my early relationship with my mother...
Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Dr. Campbell shares an intimate story about how she connected with her elderly mother at a deeper level by clearing unfinished business from their past. She and her mother healed the past and stepped into the present with more love and acceptance. She describes a "completion process" that we can use to approach relationships that need more healing in our own lives. With courage, an open heart and truth, people can speak up and heal their relationships; in the process, they heal themselves.

In the last two decades, a new paradigm for scientific inquiry has been developing based on the acceptance of simple things acting together in complex, network-like relations. Classical science, as exemplified by Newtonian mechanics, is essentially reductionist...

1. What was the inspiration for Sensory Delight?
Drawn from my personal experience of living with Tourette syndrome, Sensory Delight marks the professional development from my Bachelor of Fine Art Honours work ‘Sensory Overload...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I LOVE Bliss Cavanagh's story! As both an art therapist and an artist, I view her use of art and the creative process to deal with her Tourette syndrome, as a profound validation of the power of art to heal and enlighten. Her story is a perfect example of mythologist Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey - a descent to her deeper self, her return bearing gifts and knowledge of benefit to both herself and the wider community. Bliss's transformation via art is also a story of self-acceptance, of learning to use and work with her Tourrette's rather than continually trying to 'fix' herself of something that has emerged, via her art, as her greatest gift.

We can’t expect our children to derive answers on their own. Learning to understand your child’s world through listening to their questions, ideas and thoughts will be critical-steal the opportunity to show your children individually, ‘I’m vested in YOU, YOU are important, and I approve of YOU lovingly and with acceptance...
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We know we are sharing a touchy topic but it's reality for many families. We feel the tips that Bruce provides regarding separation or divorce can be very valuable to our readers.

As an acupuncturist, I do a lot of myth debunking. It’s understandable. After all, acupuncture speaks an entirely different language from the one through which most Westerners learned to see the world. However, with acupuncture continuing to grow in popularity and gain acceptance by mainstream medicine, it’s important to clarify a few myths and misconceptions that have a strong hold on our collective psyche...
Editor's Note: This is a fun, easy-to-grasp article that explains five common acupuncture myths. As an acupuncturist myself, I too spend a lot of time explaining how acupuncture feels, what it does, and if it works. The author is sure to put some misconceptions to rest, and offers insight into how this ancient medicine fits into modern times.
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Wendy Ida has a remarkable story and here she talks about her journey toward self-acceptance and physical well-being. This is the first video in the Strive to Thrive series on Wendy. We will include Part 2 of Wendy’s story when it becomes available.
At age 43, Wendy Ida was 80 pounds overweight; by age 56 she was taking home the top prize in a body building competition. For Wendy and the three other experts featured in "Strive To Thrive," an original video series produced by Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, the difference between accepting the status quo and being transformed hinges on one thing: taking the first step.

As I was rocking my baby to sleep for his nap this morning several hours earlier than his regular nap time, I remembered my first weeks with Everest and how uncertain I often felt as a new mother. As sleep has always been one of our most challenging areas (with both boys), I often consulted The Books to see if I could glean a new tip that would help me help my baby to learn how to sleep...
Editor's Note: In this article, Sheryl Paul, M.A, explains how societal expectations can foster much anxiety and insecurity for mothers, and anyone involved in a huge life transition. She shares her wonderful insight on welcoming this and other life transitions with gentleness and self-acceptance.

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.
