Each life has its own mythology, its own grand journey and its own universe of symbols and constellation of meaning. Dreams, according to Joseph Campbell and others, provide a personal mythology for each individual, just as mythology offers a broad dream for the culture...
Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: We can probably all agree that dreams are dramatic. So it's not surprising that by studying Greek drama, and in particular the role of the Greek chorus, I found a helpful way to look at the role dreams and dreaming play in my life.
Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: Vibrant and colorful, Karen Atkins' photography will inspire you, move you, and groove you in her portraits of women, children, and men around the world.

My first experience with poke (Phytolacca americana) was in my teacher’s back yard in central Virginia, in early fall my first year of herbal studies. She wanted us to do a plant journey.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Important note to our readers: Poke may be a restricted herb in some places. In Canada, for example, it is only sold to qualified herbalists who have signed a dangerous botanicals form. As always, it's important to keep in mind that not all plants are suitable for all people. Some people, for example, are allergic to plants in the Asteraceae family and do not tolerate chamomile. When in doubt, get more information. Know the cautions and contraindications of the plant and adhere to them.

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.
Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: On November 16, 2012 14 students from 5 U.S. chiropractic colleges spoke at the first ever "Step into the future" event at Life Chiropractic College West. In this video Life West student Brett Jones describes his journey through a 7- day water cleanse. His message will inspire you to truly trust in your innate intelligence.

Are you frustrated by the repetition of unhappy relationships with similar patterns that prevent deep intimacy and trust?
Have you withdrawn from seeking intimacy and sex because it’s easier to be alone and celibate than deal with the drama and emotional pain of a “relationship?”
Are you hoping there is more to sex and intimacy than what your experience has been?...
