A Diné (Navajo) patient, a relatively healthy man in his late 50s, had two recent episodes of loss of consciousness. The doctors diagnosed him with food poisoning, a diagnosis which the patient’s wife did not accept. She asked me for a second opinion, noting that she was worried that there may be some “spiritual foul play” involved in her husband’s recent attacks...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: The connection of consciousness to our inner self, others and the divine is a most complex relationship. Ayurveda uses food as medicine to help purify the body and improve the spirit. Joan Aronowitz discusses the link between Ayurveda and Trancendental Mediation (TM). The clarity achieved by this technique offers us insight into the depths of our consciousness. Enjoy listening to this introduction and reflect on how you may integrate TM practice into your daily Ayurvedic routine. Namaste
Editor's Note: Shaman Jon Rasmussen describes how Shamans view destiny versus fate, the Q'ero prophecy of the return to the Garden and the current awakening of mass human consciousness.

Body and soul love each other. This is what it is to exist - you are a soul who has chosen to take on a body and participate in life on Earth. It’s an adventure. On your journey, you might feel, from time to time, the need to refresh yourself in the soul’s innate happiness and consciousness...
Editor's Note from David Pratt: I have been reading the gorgeous and rich, Radiance Sutras - a version of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, by Lorin Roche. The 112 sutras that make up the text are meditations spoken by Shiva in response to his Goddess lover's questioning. In this article, Lorin brings the practicality of one sutra alive by showing how he has helped specific individuals find their own, unique and perfect way to meditate.

THE ONENESS of the spiritual dimension is the underlying reality of all relationships. It can be described as a relational field, a fundamental continuity of self and other. In the spaciousness and stillness of our spiritual essence, we are truly in contact, truly intimate, with ourselves and with all of life...

The other important group of energy approaches are what I call “non-chi based”. These modalities do not focus on the meridian or chakra system of the body directly. They are often less well-known, but quite powerful in affecting change. Some of them are focused on consciousness, while others are more generally vibrational in nature. Examples of non-chi based methods include shamanic work, Matrix Energetics, sound healing, flower essences, angelic healing, dream work, and spiritual inquiry.

We have many rituals we do in our daily lives that we're just not that mindful of in the context of "ritual"…(bathing, eating) daily rituals mostly done without even thinking about it. Being mindful of these daily events will bring ritual back to you, simply and with an expanded consciousness each time we participate in the activity...
