Kids live active, stressful lives. They attend school, do homework, participate in competitive sports, play video games, and meet their friends at the mall. In addition, they deal with divorce, new schools, tough neighborhoods, illnesses, bullying, and pressure to get excellent grades...
Editor's Note: Several studies show that children who practice yoga have less stress. This article describes one such students where students learn how to breath their way through difficult situations, how to refocus their thoughts and look at difficult situations differently, how to have better overall health from practicing asanas (poses) as well, and more. This looks like a vialbe alternative/addition to school curriculum. Namaste!

With the recent spate of mass shootings, people have begun to ask what it will take to reduce violence, especially among kids or in places where they spend time. We know that violence does not just occur in random places sparked by uncertain things. It also takes place daily in schools or on street corners...
Editor's Note: Violence is a result of many things, including mental illness and feelings of loss, anger, loneliness, and powerlessness. Fortunately, these feelings are something that a yoga practice can address, especially when meditation is guided by someone who intentionally wants to empower and encourage students who are dealing with these types of emotions. The author states that, in addressing these negative feelings, yoga gives its practitioners, especially young people, an internal locus of control.

Rows 1 and 2 symbolized the development of mental and emotional attributes. From this comes the stability to encounter spiritual challenges. As the aspirant experiences deeper experiences of the infinite/eternal, the strengths developed in the earlier stages provide channels for inner insights to transform outer life...
Editor´s Note from Lynda Martin: This article is the fourth in a series about how to use Tarot to deeply study wisdom teachings designed to develop spiritually whole human beings. Row 3 of the teaching spread used for generations (see the overview in the Teaching Spread article) is finally about focused spiritual growth. In ancient schools, aspirants were required to develop skills and stability of mind (Row 1) and heart (Row 2) before being admitted to the deeper studies.

Last year I wrote a story for All Things Healing reviewing the nutritional impact of a lunch served at my daughter’s public school. Ahhh, another season has come and gone, and I feel it’s time to check in… to see if there has been some change…
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Eden wrote a follow up article regarding the lunches schools are serving in our country to our children to this very day. This new article is a follow up to her original article a year ago and it's worth the few minutes it takes to read it. This is a call to action to all parents, an intervention is desperately needed. We recommend you go to the schools, witness the school lunches with your own eyes. It will be a real eye opener. We encourage you to speak up, use your voice, talk to those in charge, and take a look at the websites she's recommended. Your voice is needed in the fight for healthy food for all of our children. It's all of our futures. Thank you Eden, once again for bringing this to all of our attention. See Part 1
