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...

This is one of my personal favorites. Friends often request this quinoa salad and I happily oblige because it’s a snap to make and goes well with everything. The quinoa in this recipe cooks in 15 minutes, and just a simple dressing of lemon juice and olive oil seasons it perfectly...

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: To soothe Vata strained muscles, joints and skin, focus on some self pampering with the Ayurvedic practice of abhyanga. A daily warm oil massage is a great way to detoxify lymph, increase circulation, calm the body's nerves and stimulate muscles, while delivering important nutrients to the skin. This wonderful Banyan Botanicals video demonstrates a step by step abhyanga massage. Be sure to include your belly for an excellent treat for your digestive system. Enjoy!

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.
