Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Sile Molloy is a fellow Transpersonal Art Therapist here in Australia. I met Sile last year when she very kindly offered to help me with the orgainisation of a film festival during Mental Health Month. Sile's motivation for becoming an art therapist was running art classes for children and recognising that their work together could be used to help children deal with difficulties in their lives and help with their ongoing wellbeing. This youtube clip is a beautiful piece of visual storytelling which outlines Sile's journey to becoming an art therapist.

After trying for over a week to have a lucid dream, I finally succeeded…
Typically I have a lucid dream once or twice a month without trying. If I want to have a dream in which I know that I’m dreaming, I usually achieve my goal after a night or two of setting my intention in that direction...

I have been completely following my heart and only taking actions that feed my soul. Of course, many say that an entrepreneur must keep themselves in the public eye in front of their clients in order to keep business flowing … this means writing in your blog a few times a month. For me, though, all of that activity, up until now, just has not done it for me. I simply cannot move into any action that does not feel right...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: We often hear people saying we need to trust the process of life. And sometimes life asks us to be still, to do nothing. How do we reconcile our cultural conditioning that says to thrive we must work hard and achieve, when all of our internal messaging is to withdraw from the routine? As winter calls us in-doors, Trish Regan's article inspires us to trust and ask how we can best nurture our souls.

One of my dreams came true when I was in the 8th grade. I won a horse! I was a 4-H member in my community and participated in all the projects. That year one of the local farmers who raised Tennessee Walking Horses announced that he was giving a 6-month-old colt to the most outstanding 4-H Club member in the county that year. Well, I loved horses, read all the novels in the library, studied books, and listened to grown-ups whenever they talked about horses. So I got to work - very, very hard.

"My introduction to volunteer work as a homeopath came from my clinical homeopathic work in Calcutta India under the guidance of Dr. S.K. Banerjea. He runs many slum clinics for the poor and also a mobile homeopathic bus that makes stops in extremely poor areas of Calcutta. I was in Calcutta with Banerjea for about a month. We went to all the slum clinics in the homeopathic pharmacy bus. It was loaded with homeopaths and remedies. The door would swing open in the back and patients would line up for hours in the heat..."
Editor´s Note: After reading Gina's interview, I am so proud to be a part of the community of homeopaths. The determination that she demonstrated to provide homeopathic aid to the people of Indonesia--both in direct treatment and teaching them how to self-prescribe for acute ailments--is astounding. A shining example of the empowering ability of Homeopathy and the dedication of the homeopathic profession!
