"In the introduction to the book, I describe feeling like I was missing something big, something important. I had been searching for answers for a long time and wasn’t any closer to finding them.

My grandparents live on a farm where they grow beans and raise sheep. They’re doing what people used to do in the past, grow food and eat food. What I want to do is introduce urban communities to rural communities and harmonize the two. A city cannot survive without the country...

Jerry Wennstrom is a New York born artist who after producing a large body of work, at age 29 set out to discover the rock-bottom truth of his life. For years he questioned the limits of his creative life as a studio painter. After destroying all of his art and giving away everything he owned, Jerry began a life of unconditional trust, allowing life to provide all that was needed. He lived this way for 15 years.
This interview, given by Marié Sakai, ATH Co-Editor of Arts & Art Therapy, explores with Jerry why he destroyed his work and how that act changed his life, his art, and his relationship with himself and the world - and how his story has captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation.

In February of 1999, I drove up the long spine of the San Fernando Valley to the town of Sierra Madre to seek out the Rev. Rosalyn Bruyere. I was a pilgrim, desperate for a cure. I'd heard she was an "energy healer" but I had no idea what that was...

B.A. Chepaitis is the author of the futuristic novel series featuring Dr. Jaguar Addams, who rehibilitates prisoners by making them face their deepest fears...
Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: It is not so easy to admit when we are frightened of something – agression, aging, hurricanes, water, God, life itself or even a tiny mouse... Fears come as the unpleasant truth to shake the grounds of our braveness and self-esteem. So what then? When we admit, "Hmm, may be I'm afraid a little bit, but I will work on this." What we should do with fears – fight them? Or let them go? Or learn from them? Or don't recognize them? How to cope with this unpleasant stuff?
