WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT: It seems like every day we learn something new about the universe, with incredible pictures of distant stars, strange nebulae, or colliding galaxies that dazzle astronomers. If we take a bird's-eye view on the subject of cosmology, what is being revealed about the universe we live in...
Here’s a great example of one woman’s artistic expression of the new cosmology. I first met Betty-Ann at a retreat about the new cosmology with Dr. Brian Swimme in California in 1999. Her playful wit and intense curiosity about the nature of the universe are beautifully presented in her new book called “Great Ball of Fire! A Poetic Telling of the Universe Story” (Mearth Press, 2010). I was recently able to speak with her about this newly published epic poem, as well as inquire about her inspiration and her thoughts about cosmology...
"We Are All Connected" was made from sampling Carl Sagan's Cosmos, The History Channel's Universe series, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more. It is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.
Have you ever had a client during the pre-interview try and hold back tears? Some people exhibit a life time of holding back tears. Sometimes they feel as it it isn’t mature to cry, or they should be stronger or it isn’t manly. Why encourage any tears in your pre-interview or in your hypnosis session?
Recently I've been involved in creating and hosting a series of documentaries on integrative medicine. The three films are aimed at healthcare professionals. The first is about the science of tai chi, the second is about the science of meditation and the third is about the science of acupuncture. I've just wound up the last on-location filming (interviewing experts) for the acupuncture film, and am struck by how this ancient healing modality is blossoming in popularity across the country...
Editor's Note: This article is a good introduction to acupuncture to those who have not tried the modality.
Editor's Note fromMayu Kawata:This video goes in-depth on the importance of music therapy, for all. From small children to elders, music is an integral part of our lives, with evidence proving that one achieves more than when music is not used. The wide benefits of music therapy and its integration into the medical setting is discussed in interviews with Lorrie Kubicek MT-BC, Dr. Lisa Wong M.D, Diane Tow MT-BC, and Kathleen Howland Ph.D MT-BC.
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: A beautiful synergy between music ['Healing Begins' by Tenth Avenue North], imagery and words, this video s a powerful illustration of both the damage wrought by rape/abuse and the journey back to healing and wholeness. Please also see interview coming soon on ATH with Lynne McGuire, a sexual assault counsellor in Australia, who uses the arts and creativity with her clients.
How do you thank someone who has helped to set you free? How do you thank a man whose gentle spirit and zinger statements have forever altered the course of your life? Ihaleakala Hew Len is such a man for me. Like a soul brother who shows up unexpectedly in an hour of need, Ihaleakala came into my life in March of 1985, during a time of massive change for me...
