Why are our eyes called the windows to our souls? Why do we speak of the way that we "see" the world? Why do we say "I see" in order to communicate that we understand? What is the understanding? What is the relationship between our vision, our eyesight, and our way of Being?

 

Eyesight is not just a physical process involving acuity. It is a multi-dimensional function affecting and affected by our emotional and mental state of Being, and linked to our personalities.

Holy Wars are erupting all over America! People are dying for their metaphors of the eternal, Joseph Campbell would say. 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. The author assures us that it's not only NOT a religion, but in fact science and therefore, she believes has a true home in the public schools.

Kim MurrieraWhen substitute-teacher Kim Murriera stepped in to take over a second-grade class, little did she realise the trauma she would encounter. In Part 2, Kim continues her account of how the story of St. Christopher came to the rescue. See Part 1...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Kim Murriera

Kim MurrieraAt first the children and I were in a honeymoon period. This lasted for almost a month, and then slowly things began to fall apart. Children were falling out of chairs, lunches were being thrown across the room, physical fights were breaking out on the playground and the social atmosphere of the class was unkind. I was at a loss as what to do with the children. It was obvious they were feeling abandoned and were acting out these feelings. . .
 
 
 
 

“Wherever a story comes from, whether it is a familiar myth or a private memory, the retelling exemplifies the making of a connection from one pattern to another: a potential translation in which narrative becomes parable and the once upon a time comes to stand for some renascent truth. This approach applies to all the incidents of everyday life: the phrase in the newspaper, the endearing or infuriating game of a toddler, the misunderstanding at the office. Our species thinks in metaphors and learns through stories.”

~Mary Catherine Bateson

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Nancy Gershman

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. 

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Penny Hoff

I am a fitness writer and if you read my rants with any regularity, you know that they are irregular in a consistent way: I tend to filter everything I see in my daily life through the filter of fitness. Fitness can be a metaphor for just about anything in life, especially if you are slightly optimistic like me...

Life is much more like a mysterious labyrinth than a straight path. Think about it, a big source of our angst and fears often stems from navigating the labyrinth...
