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.

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.

When I was younger green bean casserole was ALWAYS my favorite side dish at Thanksgiving, but as I got older and began to become more health conscious I realized it wasn't the best dish in the world for me. Cutting out most dairy and wheat from my diet has been quite the adventure, but this dish makes it easier, it is rich and decadent without including those two inflammatory ingredients.
