Henry Charles Bukowski (1920 – 1994) was a Los Angeles writer and existentialist, who wrote about the poor and downtrodden when it was unfashionable to do so, publishing over 60 books in his career...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: “You have to die a few times before you can really live.” Bukowski often lived on the edge of society and wrote about the poor and downtrodden when it was unfashionable to do so. His writings are edgy and still relevant to modernity. These 'top 10" quotes are my favorites.
Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: An art therapy patient speaks about her art as being 'a window into her inner world' which gradually opened up her ability to speak about her experience of psychosis.

Modern women in the West are blessed to have more freedom in life than ever. We work hard in the world with career, family and community. We delve deep into spirituality and creative pursuits. We pay attention to our bodies, health and wellbeing. If we really want to, we can pursue our every dream. So how do we create the extra energy needed for all this multi-tasking without burning out and fading away?..
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Do you multi-task? Do you ever feel like you need more energy to accomplish what you need to do on a day-by-day basis? The Solar Plexus Chakra functions as your energy center - think of the radiant energy of the Sun, which provides energy for all living things on this Earth. This third Chakra is the source of your personal power.

This psychic doesn’t wear a turban and gaze into a crystal ball, or predict the meeting of tall, dark, handsome men.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There are many paths to animal communication, just as there are many paths to each of our career choices. When we get where we are meant to be, the match is clear to all those around us. The beauty of Emerald DuCoeur's match as an animal communicator is pet parents understand their pet and work for a better life, or afterlife, together.

Most days I come in to work knowing what to expect, in reference to environment, client behavior, songs I may use, staff member conversations, etc.. I think this is true for most people who have maintained the same job for an extended period. I think there is something in this comfortable frame of mind and space that allows us to burnout...
