Wholistic Gaia science is not only a foundational world view for the investigation of "the details of how all organisms exchange gases and other chemical compounds with the water, atmosphere and soils of Earth." But, from a cultural standpoint, what I am seeing is that Gaia is also a foundation for a planetary religion, a benevolent new way of living with and revering the Earth. Gaia shows us the way to create evolutionary new habitats so that we have not only the scientific technology, but the philosophy to peacefully penetrate deeper into the mysteries of the Universe using both science and art.

Okay. Let’s talk about what I call transference and what a lot of teachers call transmission. There are two ways I can approach this topic: 1. From a pseudo-scientific hypothetical point of view & 2...
Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: Here's a serious/humorous article about spiritual transmission or transference I wrote a few years ago.

On several occasions, over the last little while I have been asked about what essential oils one could use with diabetes. So I decided to do a bit of a search and see whether I could come up with any research papers...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: It's never too early to begin nourishing your child. Ayurveda recommends abhyanga oil massage to protect against Vata early on, even for babies! This detailed video reviews how to massage an infant with specific attention to the stroke types, start times and environment (warm and comfortable). Abhyanga allows the nourishing oil to lubricate the skin, muscles and joints, calms the nervous system and encourages restful sleep. *Note that they are using organic coconut oil, which is fine during summertime, but luke warm sesame oil is best thoroughout the rest of the year when it is cold, to encourage ciruclation. Enjoy this wonderful practice with your baby and the beautiful bond it creates. Namaste.
Editor's Note from Margaret Marchuk: This video shows how one company is turning milk jugs, oil containers, and other typical number two coded plastic waste products, into durable fencing. The company even recycled machinery that makes the product.

I remember when I was a kid and used to see shows and medical exhibits on how awful primitive medicine was and how wonderful our new "scientific" medicine is. The exhibits would include Aztec skull cutters to make holes to let out evil spirits, leeches, snake oil salesman, and such. We may have moved past some of these (well, instead of leeches we have lab blood-drawing stations), but as we see, historically, the wheel continues to turn...

The term “aromatherapy” was first coined in 1928 by the French chemist, René-Maurice Gattefossé. However, essential oils have been used to scent both our body and environment via incense and perfume by ancient civilizations for thousands of years for religious, medical, and cosmetic purposes. Today, essential oils are being used to fragrance homes and businesses, for ambiance, relaxation, energy, stress relief, and productivity...
