For those who see life through a negative filter, how can we help them become unstuck from loss and regrets, trauma and remorse? One way is to speak to the emotional brain in a language it understands – essentially sensory images, metaphors and symbols...
Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Digital artist Nancy Gershman creates prescriptive "Dreamscapes" for those in need of healing as a result of grief and loss, addictive behaviors, or ruptured relationships. Nancy Gershman reviews her client's most positive memories and photos and then creates a photomontage to help the subject visualize a new life. Profound, inspirational, and provocative, this kind of healing speaks directly to the subconscious, working on all levels of the body, mind, and soul to help her clients to self-soothe in times of crisis.

Before I began a practice of Proprioceptive Writing, I laid claim to very few childhood memories. In general, when I tried to scroll back in time and pick out memories of my family, my childhood home or anything else, I would draw a blank. Significantly, one of my earliest memories that I did retain was of a dream I had at age four or five. In this dream, I was coming down the stairs at night...

This particular paper has to do with understanding the natural and universal healing laws and how hypnosis and hypnotherapy relate to them. Its intent is to express the ways in which the mind affects our body and its health; and how hypnosis can be used to free people from imprints, or memories, that have been set in their minds from experiences, beliefs, images, and what people have said or projected -- real, or perceived as real...

I just love Valentine's Day. I love the color red, I love the fact that it's a reason to celebrate love, and I love that we're allowed to give chocolates, flowers and cards as tokens of our affection for those we love. One of my fondest memories as a little girl was making Valentine's day cards to put in my classmates special Valentine's day envelope. I looked forward to cutting the heart shapes, pasting the hearts on the pretty white doilies, and writing my special note to my friends...

The space of unconditional love is where we want to be but it takes a lot of understanding,wisdom and growth to be in this lovely space. When we are growing as children, most of us have experiences that are abusive and detrimental to our emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of our being. We then carry these wounds of our souls into our cellular memories and consciousness...

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.

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.
