Egypt’s revolutionary activities of the last few weeks have captured the attention of the world. The citizens of Egypt have just managed (with no real outside assistance) the reasonably peaceful re-birth of their nation while ousting their 29-year dictator Hosni Moubarak.

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: A couple of years ago, my friend and fellow storyteller Raphael Rodan teamed up with Arjen Barel and Inger Lise Ourlich to found the International School of Storytelling and Peace in Amsterdam. Each year they invite numbers of young people from Israel and Palestine as well as from across Europe to come together to share their stories and to use storytelling and drama to explore conflict resolution. This video gives you an insight into the philosophy and practice of this ground-breaking endeavour. It was filmed, directed and edited by Rodan's storytelling partner Anastasis Sarakatsanos.

The aim of a yoga practice is to reduce suffering. To do this we practice postures, recite incantations and study sutras. A yoga practice should necessarily involve working with pain. The asanas are good to reduce lower back pain, shoulder pain, sacroiliac pain and the like.

Here is another bell ringing to help us wake up from what we think we are in order to experience what we really Are.

When suddenly – off to the side, not half a block away – you hear it. The familiar creaking whine of a screen door opening. A neighbor steps outside, oblivious, with her little dog on a leash beside her. You tighten your grip instinctively, but it’s too late. Your dog has seen them too.
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Calm to crazed in zero point two seconds on the leash may be an emotional problem rather than a training issue; and there are tricks to help your dog cope.

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As hard as it is to watch this crying baby with colic, hang in there and watch till the end. This poor baby was crying straight for 2.5 days and nights. There was clearly interference to the nervous system and with just one much-needed adjustment, harmony and peace was restored!
