by Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The essay is the only literary form which confesses, in its very name, that the rash act known as writing is really a leap in the dark. When men try to write a tragedy, they do not call the tragedy a try-on...

 

Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: I know... proposing Americans to write an essay looks like explaining a shoemaker how to make shoes. Essays are the necessary part of academic activity, of contemporary education. You describe “in your own words” some outline, you prepare for exams, you write sketches for a newspaper. But this is what an Essay became after naturalization in USA.

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Joan Kaplan, MA, LMT

Meditation


by Jamila Gorman

Controlling the subconscious mind through visualization exercises can be a form of self-hypnosis or a stage of spiritual awareness in which visualization is a powerful tool. Many individuals believe both result in the same state of mind for the individual, making them ultimately the same process...
