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.

Our heroine has gone in search of the answers to life. Perhaps not all of life, maybe only the answers to her own life, or perhaps she’s just in search of a little peace in this endlessly changing and complicated world...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: My life kept falling apart for a long time and for different reasons. So I came up with a folder on my Mac called options.doc and by a process of elimination, decided to become a writer and researcher. Now I combine writing and research with art therapy.

We live in an ever-changing world inside and outside, and in order to find peace and embrace these changes, it seems vitally important to find ways of finding and maintaining one's equilibrium...
Editor's Note from David Starlight: Sādhanā is a Sanskrit word denoting “a practice toward a spiritual goal.” A Sādhanā practice feeds our souls and over time will cultivate a new perspective on empowerment. Regular Sādhanā accesses an inner sanctuary of wisdom and kindness and can become a means whereby "bondage becomes liberation.” (Bhattacharyya) Here is an invitation to step forward in your practice and take the next step forward in your life.

Finally in a conversation with this one particular customer service representative I heard myself saying, “I just feel like crying right now, I am so angry!” And then, I did start crying. I was embarrassed, because my ego really likes its persona of being in control. I pride myself on handling conflict with aplomb...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: Do you sometimes feel like lie down and cry? I experienced a major change in my life when I stopped hiding from my emotions but embraced what I felt in each moment. Emotions can be challenging, but they are also an important signal on our healing journey. Embracing painful emotions helped me to create more joy and inner peace in my life. Read this article by Kimberly Schneider can help you to do the same. Enjoy the read.

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.
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Snatam Kaur's song, We are Peace, is the perfect mantra for 2014. A great song for the whole family.

Living a soulful life isn’t something that just happens to us. It isn’t like we just look at our life one day and realize that we’re awake – enlightened – present – alive – happy – whole – and at peace...
Editor´s Note from Doris Helge: When life challenges you, is it hard to remember you want to live as Your Best Self? Since how we are is who we are, I know you'll enjoy Jodi's article, "The Key to Living a Soulful Life."

In shamanism, the belief that there is no death is a concept grounded in the belief of the soul existing in a never-ending process of regeneration...
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamans and those who practice shamanism have always worked with both the living and the dead, helping to convey wholeness and healing to the souls of all. Whether the healing is bringing peace and empowerment to one who is dying, resolving open issues and wounds, or helping the spirit of one who has passed get to the place or state where the most positive non-physical experience can occur, shamans help make this incredible transition even more valuable and transcendent. Extraction, soul retrieval, depossession, and shamanic counseling/teaching can help the living before death, and psychopomp can help the dead after their body dies. Both of these can also help the loved ones who remain in the physical after the transition…
