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.

Many parents-to-be are blissfully unaware of the challenges that come with getting your baby to sleep. Naturally, the majority are not even thinking about how they will approach this and probably have a dreamy image of laying their baby in their crib to fall asleep peacefully. Experienced parents know that is not the typical situation and were quite surprised by how overwhelming sleep time can be...
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We really love Lyssa's point here that there are alternatives to getting your baby to sleep. Old thinking, old ways we feel need to be laid to rest. Letting your baby cry themselves to sleep in their crib is not the most healthy alternative as Lyssa so eloquently points out. There are many alternatives to choose from. Please new parents seek out these new ways.

As an astrologer I have had the opportunity to hear the life stories of many Libras and have found that when you have your Sun in Libra your identity will be tied up into looking good, being fair, and having the world be fair and peaceful around you. This is not to say that you will have it, just that it will be a theme in your life, you will be wired to notice when circumstances around you are not fair, are not peaceful and you will be prodded, willing or not, to find balance when there is none. The astrology behind the Libra identity reveals so much more...

Stroud is a pretty little town nestled peacefully in the Karuah Valley, NSW. The verdant green and rolling hills surrounding Stroud are more reminiscent of England than of the wide brown land of Dorothea Mackellars’ poem, My Country**. Maryjane O’Dell’s house and garden in the main street of Stroud combines the quaintness of a cottage garden and a home lovingly and skillfully restored, with a quirky sense of humour. The result is a delight for the senses...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Maryjane O'Dell would not consider herself to be an artist but the fact is that she is one. Her home, Ye Olde Bakehouse, in Stroud, Australia is one of those places where the creativity of the owner jumps out at you. Her joy in making and constructing things is evident everywhere you look and the result is a delight for the senses.

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.
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: I came upon this video and was transfixed. As a female teacher of spirituality, this piece gave me a wonderful opportunity to practice staying in my peace and in non-judgement. If you are a woman, I am curious how John Piper's words strike you. And question... how will viewpoints such as these broaden as women are coming more and more important (and necessary) in all areas of leadership?

When prolonged worry takes hold and we can't talk ourselves out of it with words, we may be able to coax ourselves into a calmer state starting with the body. And the simplest way to start is with the prefrontal cortex, the front-brain...
