These weeks around the winter solstice are undoubtedly the most nostalgic season of the year. (Except for maybe summer.)  The trappings of this season remind us of all the trappings from previous years:  holiday songs, candles, trees, lights, ornaments, tinsel, gifts, wreathes, and the cookies...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanic experiences in non-ordinary reality happen outside of linear time and ordinary space. Tom Cowan brings that understanding of existence into the cyclical realm of the feelings that many of us often have around the many holidays associated with the winter Solstice. Some feelings and memories may be wonderful, or… not so much, but whatever they are, we can become more self aware of ourselves and our relationship with the rest of the natural world by paying attention to them. Learning from the past is crucial to a more conscious Now and Future.

Animals & Pets


by Heinz Insu Fenkl

Back in the 1980's, when I was still in graduate school studying Cultural Anthropology,I was already a validated "writer" with a Masters in Creative Writing. I had finished an autobiographical book that was to become Memories of My Ghost Brother, both memoir and fiction. I was also studying Korean narrative folklore, Shamanism, and translation from a Semiotics and Structuralist perspective...

 

Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Mr. Fenkl does a beautiful job explaining the importance of story telling for healing.  He refers to Claude Levi-Strauss' notion about shamanism who explains that "...an essential element in the shaman's treatment is to allow the unconscious to express itself in a way that the conscious can understand. In the shamanic ritual, this involves the language of symbols — things that have meaning because we have agreed upon the meanings attributed to them."  Enjoy this inspiring, thought-provoking article.

 

Intuition & Symbols


by M.J. Plaster

Nothing turns a commonplace, ho-hum room into a radiant, inviting setting faster than the flicker of a few ordinary candles scattered strategically throughout the room. Add scented candles and you can quickly evoke childhood memories, transport your imagination to a tropical island, or infuse the room with the crisp scent of a pine forest. Aromatherapy candles add yet another dimension to the equation...

 

 

Aromatherapy


by Christine Nightingale, BA, RM, CH

Many people believe that aromatherapy only works because certain scents make us feel good and  help us relax.  It is true that scents can affect us at a   subliminal level . Because the olfactory system  is connected to the bottom of the brain without being processed by any higher brain centres , a smell can activate memories of Grandma’s garden, or a horrible hospital experience, faster than any sound or sight can do, and without any processing of the raw, visceral emotion...

 

Aromatherapy


by Atava Garcia Swiecicki

I have been listening to my dreams my entire life.  In fact, one of my earliest childhood memories is of a scary dream of a big black raven.  Later, when I was around 9 years old I had another nightmare that at my tender age sent me to the library researching books on dream interpretation...

 

Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: "Harry Potter" is a fantastical work of fiction. But what if the spells Harry and his friends cast could help mere muggles? Well, maybe they can. In this article, Atava Garcia Swiecicki explains how combining active dreaming and some Potter-esque wizardry helped her heal a painful shoulder condition.

 

Dream Medicine


by Lisa Moore

Some of my earliest memories are of my mother, Rose Beebe, 88, singing to me: nursery rhymes, patriotic songs, Christmas carols, church hymns, advertising jingles.

Mom wasn't always on key, but her enthusiasm was infectious and I followed her lead...

 

Editor's Note: Lisa Moore shares a touching story of her Mom's personal journey and relationship with music. She shares the challenges and healing one may experience in caring for a parent and a child.
