My writing career began over 25 years ago without my being aware of it. My first love and chosen profession was in classical music. After suffering a debilitating injury that forced me to quit performing, I became an on-air host at two classical music radio stations in Southern California.

Anger, exhaustion, depression and denial – they're not only stages of grief but what happens when your identity is only defined by what you do. If you are one of the 7.6% of people without a job today, and your world is not the same as it once was – your indignation could be justified – but will that help you get back to work?...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation teaches us to detach from our labels (ie, mother, brother, wife, business owner, etc) in terms of them defining who we are.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art can do amazing, unexpected things for people. 'Traumatic Brain Injury patients at UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle often work with art as part of their rehabilitation therapy. For some patients, the therapy becomes a passion, even a career. This video includes interviews with four TBI patients - Bret Hart, Michael Carlos, Carol Wessberg and Stacy Rosevear - and with Dr. Kathleen Bell of UW Medical Center.'

You may change your birth name many times over in your lifetime, either legally or not--because of marriage, career, or simply because you do not like your birth name. So, what's in a name? Is your name really important? And does it really matter if you change names?...
Intuition & Symbols
by Marc Allen
When I left college, I was in very bad health, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I wandered into a bookstore in Madison, Wisconsin, that specialized in western magic — something I was completely unfamiliar with. I left with a stack of books — and the first one I read, called The Art of True Healing by Israel Regardie had an immediate, positive healing effect on my life...
