I love hearing the story of how the very old mystic, scientist and philosopher, Teilhard de Chardin, taught the contemporary spiritual teacher, Jean Houston, the story of evolution through the metaphor of the butterfly. It was when she was only 13 and taking long walks with him each week in Central Park in NYC. She had been walking her fox terrier and the young girl literally bumped into the old man. She called him “Mr Tayer” and was enchanted by his stories…it was only much later that she learned who this famous old man really was...

 

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


 

Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: Writing by hand rather than electronic means has been proven over and over again to exercise the right side of the brain - that part of us that is creative, relational, imaginative and metaphoric.  Writer and Creativity Coach Cassie Premo leads her audience through a simple little writing exercise that will help us all be more present to what is happening around us.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Diane Rook

Healing stories can change the way we see our lives and the world.  Using metaphor and imagery, stories offer healing and growth to everyone - those who tell them and those who listen. They connect us to each other and help us find meaning as we imagine new possibilities and find hope...

 

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Karen Weintraub

Q. What connection do you see between the two sides of your life, poetry and medicine?

A. To my mind the two are inextricably interrelated. When we take care of patients we are immersed in stories, in language, in metaphor...

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

ATH Co-Editor of Sacred Living

My life seemed to be going well.

Until, one day I was persecuted and bullied in what to my metaphoric senses seemed much like a crucifixion. It happened overnight—I was never given the option of a defence, nor an explanation – my impeachment was complete...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: Miguel Ruiz teaches (in The Four Agreements) - "What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering." Hatred is a context for illusion - and for suppressed fear and anger to express itself. Every path takes the 'hater' back to himself. Francis of Assisi taught forgiveness even facing the worst suffering.

 

Sacred Living


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."
