Not long ago, a mountain climber and a fisherman realized they had a lot more in common than a disdain for wearing a suit to work. Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, were also passionate environmentalists that happened to be running successful businesses. More important, they understood it was good business to protect the natural resources that kept them in business. And the rest is history...

 

In 2001:

 

Based on their own business models, the two men hatch a plan to encourage more businesses to donate 1% of sales to environmental groups. Yvon calls it an "Earth Tax." Craig calls it 1% for the Planet. They go with Craig's idea.

 

Non-Profs & Orgs


by Kristin Neff, PhD

It has become a truism in our culture that we need to have high self-esteem in order to be happy and healthy. Psychologists have conducted thousands of studies touting the benefits of self-esteem. Teachers are encouraged to give all their students gold stars so that each one can feel proud and special...

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Daniel Goleman brought the term and definition of “emotional intelligence” to a wide audience with his 1995 book of that name. A man ahead of his time.

 

Meditation


by Charles A. Francis

Those of us who have been on a spiritual path for any length of time know how much work is involved in changing our views, thoughts, and behavior. With some experience, we sometimes learn what works, and what doesn’t work. Unfortunately, by the time we learn what does indeed work, we’ve already put in a lot of time in effort...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Charles presents a different type of meditative writing exercise complete with the "how to." Journaling and writing can create new neurological pathways that complement brain function to create measurable changes in thought patterns. Adding a kinesthetic (physical) component heightens the experience. This is why it is such a powerful tool in increasing compassion or working with anxiety or anger. And, it is why ATH has a full category page dedicated to it: writing/poetry therapy page.

 

Meditation


by Shoshana Avree

As of late, I've been very moved by the idea of the Undefended Heart and the role it plays in creating peace around me. Can I be that seemingly vulnerable? How can I not, when so much is riding on that state of being? This is sticky territory for me as I've spent most of my life in and out of the defended heart...


Editor's Note: I hope you will try this journey to your SAnode. Feeling strong in your heart will assist in any time of crisis and will expand your joy and compassion.

 

Shamanism


by Sara Childre, President and CEO of Institute of HeartMath
Cross-posted from www.Care2.com

In many cultures around the world, people start each morning thinking about what they’ll do that day. They check their schedules, plan their activities and make their lists...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: In this article, Sara Childre inspires us to consider starting each day asking what heart, care and compassion we can bring to each new day, to truly embody heart-based living. What could be better than adding more heart to our daily practice?

Give Up In Your Meditation, Not On Your Meditation

When I first started meditating, thirty seven odd years ago, my mind was a mess...

Meditation


by David G. Arenson, ND
ATH Co-Editor of Sacred Living

What is our true nature?

We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves, revealing the flower within. Let peace begin with me.

 

Transformation starts with looking in the mirror at the self. It can be no other way. Simply put, taking responsibility for everything that appears in one's life, is the starting point...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: What is our true nature? Zen teaches us acceptance of all that is. In this acceptance, we allow ourselves to be compassionate for all things. When we feel lost,” our soul has not gone off track. It's more likely that we are totally on course and coming closer than ever to personal transformation. We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves - “As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner” (Rumi) Our true nature is infinity.
