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 Peter Clark: Shapeshifting is a classic shamanic experience, state or practice. It can happen on many levels, though of course we are always most intrigued by the physical shapeshift. John Perkins has studied and written extensively about shapeshifting (http://www.spiritofmaat.com/archive/aug1/johnperkins1.html), and he has practiced it in amazing and deep ways. In essence, he has gone through an incredible personal shapeshift - a transformation from the inside out - in his career and life - moving from a shady economic terrorist (supported by both corporations and governments) to an incredible teacher and shaman of the art of shapeshifting.

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.

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.
