I’ve known for many years that my body does not lie to me. In fact, my body often tells me, through injury, pain or illness, when there is mental or emotional work to be done. This is the story of my healing journey of a large uterine fibroid and the creative and alternative methods I employed to help me through the process....
Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Now when I hear about someone’s illness, no matter how dire their predicament seems to be, I know that if they’re willing to do the mental work of releasing and forgiving, almost anything can be healed. The word incurable, which is so frightening to so many people, really only means that the particular condition cannot be cured by ‘outer’ methods and that we must go within to effect the healing. The condition came from nothing and will go back to nothing. ~Louise L. Hay

"Consciousness is a state of evolution, there is no end point where you can say, now I’m a conscious parent. I want all parents to understand that when they embark on the journey of consciousness, it’s not necessarily to be absent of unconsciousness. That’s not what consciousness is, consciousness is the ability to become more aware of when we have fallen off track, when we need to shift back into the deepest state of groundedness, when we are being triggered by our past, rather than responding to the present, when we are responding to our own unmet needs rather than responding to a child’s need in the moment..."

Interviewed by Susan Lutz,
ATH Co-Editor of Organic Living
The Institute is a school of human transformation. Shunyamurti, the director and founder of Sat Yoga, began a practice of what he called Transformational Healing several decades ago. It is the union of meditation with a theoretical understanding of the human ego structure and its dynamics and a process of inner work, including self-inquiry, dreamwork, energy transmission, and classical yogic practices to attain purification of the soul...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A community bonding in the path of spirituality and the work of transformation and feeding it's soul with enlightment would be missing a step if it fed it's body with conventional food. Sat Yoga in Costa Rica is a wisdom and retreat center that offers a chance to open up the possibilities of one's own journey. Organic, delicious, and gorgeous food sets the table at the Institute and Radha heads the kitchen along with a tantalizing selection of cooking classes so the wisdom can truly be taken home.
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: If you love gardens, flowers, trees, nature and the magic of fairies, then then you'll enjoy this beautiful guided meditation to help you have a deeper connection with the Earth and achieve greater awareness.
