Soil is vital to the health of both people and the planet. Unfortunately, it is often the most overlooked of all agricultural inputs. The U.N. General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils (IYS) to increase awareness and understanding of the many important roles of soil...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The soil; it's all about the soil. Where we plant our seeds determines how we live. It is a rule that runs literally and metaphorically in our crops, our lives, and our intentions. Without a solid foundation, what can grow? Well?

An ideomotor signal is way to communicate non-verbally.
Ideomotor techniques are powerful for a number of reasons. Since the unconscious mind functions on more of a metaphorical level, a level dealing with imagery and imagination rather than logic, methods that use the body and emotions rather than our verbal skills are highly effective in reaching that part the mind...

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.

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.

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.
We at ATH are committed to bringing together a worldwide community of individuals and organizations
dedicated to informing and educating people on topics relating to alternative healing of mind, body,
spirit and the planet at large.
