For those who see life through a negative filter, how can we help them become unstuck from loss and regrets, trauma and remorse? One way is to speak to the emotional brain in a language it understands – essentially sensory images, metaphors and symbols...
Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Digital artist Nancy Gershman creates prescriptive "Dreamscapes" for those in need of healing as a result of grief and loss, addictive behaviors, or ruptured relationships. Nancy Gershman reviews her client's most positive memories and photos and then creates a photomontage to help the subject visualize a new life. Profound, inspirational, and provocative, this kind of healing speaks directly to the subconscious, working on all levels of the body, mind, and soul to help her clients to self-soothe in times of crisis.

Editor's Note from Marie Sakai: Sometimes it's easy to forget the simplicity that life is. It's easy to believe that we don't have everything. But this movie by filmmaker Louie Schwartzherg reminds us that life is a gift and most importantly our life, our world, each other-we are all part of this amazing creation that is art. Inspirational narrative spoken from Brother David Steindl-Rast will speak to your heart, as he says, "Open your Heart. Open your Heart to the World." And there, you will find the transformation you are yearning to become. We all have this deepness inside of us. Cultivate it. Nurture it. And we will all grow in the artwork of our dreams coming true. 2012 is all about seeing your dreams realized. Be blessed.

"A mind is a terrible thing to waste" -- such a profound and inspirational statement that speaks to us all.
And, yet, all too often we do just that, waste it, by cluttering it with thoughts of fear, anxiety, worry, resentment, anger, and expectations. The list goes on. This state of mind soon causes us to neglect our bodies; and, in a sad turn of events, we essentially waste both...
