Sometimes it takes a lunar eclipse to remind me that I am on a planet that’s spinning on its axis at approximately 1,000 miles an hour, as it orbits a star that’s approximately 93,000,000 miles away. It’s only when I get a clear experience of Earth’s constant motion that I even begin to understand just how powerful the illusions of samsara actually are. Blame this particular illusion on science and gravity if you prefer, but as Willie Nelson sings, “Still is still movin’ to me.” The illusion (and in some cases delusion) of stillness is a powerful metaphor for the astrological phase we are currently in the midst of...

 

Astrology


by Joan Silva

The word Pilgrimage was made even more impactful to me with the book I just finished reading, "Off the Road" about a modern-day walk down the Pilgrim's Route into Spain. The author's pilgrimage reminds me how much alike our money life is to the deeply moving experience one gets on a walking or metaphorical pilgrimage. Both have their struggles, delights, confusion and incredible openings...

 

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Joan Silva describes our emotional attachments to money and offers three tips to transform our relationship with money. She takes us on a journey in order to see money from a higher perspective and gives us a deeper understanding of its sacredness. She reminds us that money does not necessarily make us feel happy or improve our self-esteem. Her pilgrimage metaphor describes important issues we must all address. The journey is worth the reward!

 

Sacred Living


by Lin Morel, PhD

I have a friend who was about five when he went on his first Easter egg hunt.  He came up empty handed and decided he was a failure. His five-year old’s belief that he couldn’t succeed, even when he worked really hard, followed him through his life. It got buried really deeply...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan:  Lin Morel's article invites us to say yes to life as it unfolds and trust in the divine process. She shows us how to make the unconscious conscious and allow our inner deep wisdom to guide us and reveal the grace that is ever abundant in our lives.

 

Sacred Living


by Nancy Weiss
Dreams are shimmering pathways to deep psyche and to soul. In the language of nuance, metaphor, and pun, they speak to us of visions and callings from unknown places. Dreams hold the power to bring awe, to surprise, to delight, to terrify, and to heal us...

 

 

 

Dream Medicine


by Juhani Ihanus, PhD

Already in the symposia of the Greek Antiquity, as described by Plato, poetry was central in reaching toward the Socratic aim: “know thyself!” Although this task is imbued with a paradox (actually, you will never totally know yourself), the quest for truthful, non-deceitful, and non-exploitative words and identities is connected with poiesis, “making” the self and the world...

 

Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: Very good article of a prominent Finnish Bibliotherapist, emphasizing a special role of metaphor in biblio/poetry therapy: "Metaphor is not only a mode of language and cognition, not only a figure of speech, like in the Aristotelian tradition, but, (...) can be described as the 'currency of the (emotional) mind,' open-ended, and with enormous potential of (self-)transformation, evoking creative fantasies."

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


 

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski,  An interesting 11 minutes about the "longevity revolution" and defining a new metaphor for aging.

 

Psychotherapy


 

Editor's Note: In this short video, surfer and yoga teacher Eoin Finn, gives a beautiful metaphor about surfing the waves as being similar to going through life. He tells how living this way ultimately guided him to where he is now (a yoga teacher and more).

 

Yoga


 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Hank Wesselman recounts his first meeting with Hawaiian shaman Hale Makua, the wisdom he learned that day, and the relevancy of that wisdom to the current state of our world. In the metaphor he uses, we each have a bowl filled with varying amounts of light. Unfortunately, the men who predominantly rule this planet have very little light left in their bowls. We are all challenged to bring more light into our bowls and into our lives. See a related article here.
