I love Halloween. It’s a Juicy-Joyful holiday – a brief opportunity to replace our day-to-day masks with more outrageous ones. Maybe you’re planning which mask you’ll wear this year, but I want to give you a far scarier challenge. What if you decided to acknowledge and remove some of the numbing metaphorical masks you’ve been walking around behind? How honest are you with yourself about your truest, deepest desires?...

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...

In Part 1 of this two-part personal reflection on a day in his work with young people, David Keith—founder of the Juniper programme—reveals the power of 'telling your story' with a group of school children.

Alternately, let’s introduce mythology and science in public school classrooms to discuss yoga science, hear some great world mythology and educate our youth in reason, empiricism and enlightenment...
Editor´s Note from Brooke Nisbet: This is an interesting piece that makes a case for having yoga in public schools. It discusses the fears many may have if they view yoga as religion, for example.
