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 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.

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…

Do your children see you as happy and peaceful, or do they see you as angry, depressed or overburdened? Learn how important it is to good parenting for you to learn to take emotional responsibility for your own feelings...

Religious differences have fueled much conflict and war over the centuries, no doubt. But rather than abandon all religion and spirituality, could we instead discover a deeper and more common mystical spiritual experience within the world’s religions in order to find peace and harmony...

Most people fear death. Although we know that death is inevitable, there is often a difference between what we believe intellectually and what we experience emotionally. Why is this so? It would seem that such a universal experience could be met with acceptance...
