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.

We often think of the mental and emotional aspects of healing as well as the physical. My purpose in this article is to consider the feelings and thinking involved in healing chronic medical problems, the unity of mind and body that we bring to bear on the healing process.
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Food for the soul provides a tremendous amount of healing power. Investigating societies and traditions from places far removed from our highly, stress-driven Western world can provide us with clues and tools to integrate a more stable, healthy way of life. Finding inner peace is an important key to whole-healing. Dr. Ron Schmid is a long time advocate of family farming, raw, natural foods grown and harvested in a natural state.This is Part 1 of a 3 Part Series.

It guides with the power of temperature, smell, tastes and sensations that thrill me in and out...
