Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: Do you sometimes struggle with spirituality and religion? Are you confused by the meaning of Shakti, Kundalini and Holy Spirit? A healer once gave me a prayer using the Christian names. I looked at her with huge eyes because I couldn't connect with them at all. She told me that I could just exchange them with the buddhist counterpart. That made it easier for me to use them. Read this article and find out more about how everything is connected. In the end, what matters is that you create your connection with spirit and use names that feel right for you.

In his foreword to the German edition, von Balthasar writes: “A thinking, praying Christian of unmistakable purity reveals to us to symbols of Christian Hermeticism in its various levels of mysticism, gnosis, and magic, taking in also the Cabbala and certain elements of astrology and alchemy..."
Editor's Note: A review of an amazing book by an amazing priest. Fr. Keating is the originator of the Centering Prayer meditation, which has deepened the spiritual practice of many people.

The group is small and the individuals are a heterogeneous mix, some with a history of inappropriate sexual behaviors, violent impulsivity, and gentleness as a veil of quiet seething anger. There is a high functioning cool white dude musician waiting for community placement and monolingual Spanish speaker who in earnest is doing his best. What they all have in common is the fact that they are felons grappling with Relapse Prevention Plans and...
