'Traumatic Brain Injury patients at UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle often work with art as part of their rehabilitation therapy. For some patients, the therapy becomes a passion, even a career. This video includes interviews with four TBI patients - Bret Hart, Michael Carlos, Carol Wessberg and Stacy Rosevear - and with Dr. Kathleen Bell of UW Medical Center.'

I am wondering why my 8-year-old son, Benjamin, seems to LOVE to argue. Even when he gets his way he seems to continue on (very passionately) about why he deserves to have what he wants. When he adamantly believes he is in the right he will absolutely let you know. He has done this with flight attendants, teachers, sales clerks, etc. He is an active and happy boy and I admire his bravery. I just wonder why he argues so much...

The planet is being destroyed whilst we feed the collapsing system. Pollution and diseases are increasing, species extinction continues relentlessly, diseases we've never heard of appearing...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: Is materialism and a rampant obsession with growth at all costs without caring to think about consequences, the destruction wrought by so-called development, and the entertainment industry's mind-numbing success at destracting us from “waking up” the only thing that we are here to experience as human beings?

The first of the eight limbs of yoga are the yamas, which can be translated as the restraints or moral/ethical guidelines in which to live by. The yamas help us to understand that our goal on earth is to be compassionate, generous, honest and peaceful...
Editor´s Note: It's that time of year to make a new year's resolution. I'm not really keen on making resolutions every January, rather, when I notice that a new habit needs to be instilled, I work at adding it to my schemata whenever it's appropriate.
