Energy Medicine is based on the fact that all living things emit an energy field. This field of bio-energy, sometimes known as the "aura", was called "chi" by the Chinese, or "prana" in the Indian tradition. Modalities include approaches such as: Reiki, crystal healing, meditation, healing touch, sound therapy, Pranic healing, aromatherapy, and a host of other healing art forms.

In talking with my mentor and nutritionist, Julie Daniluk, I was reminded of the need for a daily meditation to help with stress busting. When I go to my friend’s house and draw spiritual cards, I often get the “meditation” card. When talking to other mentors or leaders in yoga and wellness, they ask if I have a daily meditation practice (knowing I should). Ugh… really?! Meditation again? Sigh. See the thing is, no matter how much I duck, dodge and fight it… meditation will keep being brought to my attention, because it is something that I really need in my life...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: An article from one of my dearest of friends and also former college roommate (which means we've been friends for over 25 years). We've both come a long way, baby.
Editor's Note from Sue Meyn: Stephen Levine is a spiritual teacher who has written many books, one among them being "Who Dies". He has worked with cancer patients and AIDS patients helping them to deal with the difficulties they face. As he will explain in this video he has written poetry for much of his life, though his work in teaching meditation and his other work pulled him away from it as his life focus.
I always appreciate "time" with Stephen because he speaks with such an authentic voice. I hope you will be inspired by his words.

Folks have been asking lately why they continue to catch cold or come down with a flu now and then even when they're really doing their best to live properly. They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline. Some may imagine, I suppose, that the human's natural state of being is eternal optimal health...
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong? Arthur's article is a wonderful reminder that life is plastic and in a continual flow. It's the overall quality of life that living in a healthy way provides that gives the joy in living.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: One of my most favorite and powerful mindfulness proliferators, Jon Kabat-Zinn, speaks on mindfulness in this simple yet powerful video. Move into the "actuality of your life"...
"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
It is the same, but with a slight difference. The emphasis is now not on the gap, but on the turning. The outgoing and ingoing breath make a circle. Remember, these are not two parallel lines. We always think of them as two parallel lines -- breath going in and breath going out...
Editor's Note: The 112 meditations of the Vigyan Vairabh Tantra revealed by Osho are considered some of the oldest treasures in connecting with the superconscious.

The more I practice mindful awareness, the more I learn what it is and what it isn't. What it isn't is hours spent in the lotus position, eyes closed, blissfully deep in meditation.
What it is is beautifully summed up by my husband, "It's the little things..."
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: More and more I hear people saying, "Eden, I just can't commit to a regular meditation practice!!!" And, I find my old warrior-self starting to now relax where before I would be like... What do you mean!? Truly, if you can just start to bring in small moments of awareness each day... gosh, that would just be lovely. It would be lovely for the world and tiny steps are divine!!! Good ideas here.
