Holy Wars are erupting all over America! People are dying for their metaphors of the eternal, Joseph Campbell would say. Alternately, let’s introduce mythology and science in public school classrooms to discuss yoga science, hear some great world mythology and educate our youth in reason, empiricism and enlightenment...
Editor´s Note from Brooke Nisbet: This is an interesting piece that makes a case for having yoga in public schools. It discusses the fears many may have if they view yoga as religion, for example. The author assures us that it's not only NOT a religion, but in fact science and therefore, she believes has a true home in the public schools.
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Powerful video. Watch it if you want more from your schools... I challenge you to ask them about bringing mindfulness programs into their curriculum. Let's make an awesome, uplifting change! It's so easy... it's almost crazy.

Naturopathic doctors (ND’s) are highly trained physicians, graduating from accredited medical schools. We pride ourselves in thinking outside the box, because let’s face it: there are no cookie cutter human bodies. We are all a complex combination of our environments, our genetics, and our individual stories. ND’s provide customized, natural care for their patient’s individual needs, promoting long term health. Here are 10 reasons you should consider seeking the help of a Naturopathic physician:
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Aruna Kathy Humphrys is very experienced in teaching children yoga. She provides a simplistic blueprint for the ways yoga has inspired and helped children in schools, deal with divorce and emotional traumas. Children's yoga is a great holistic option for well-being.

What do Napoleon Perdis, Robin Fredriksz, and Joey Mills have in common? Most people in film and fashion would say that they are three of the most gifted make-up artists in the industry. I am 15 years old and they are my heroes. I read and learn everything I can about them, so that I can follow in their large and impressive footsteps. Since an early age, makeup artistry has been my favorite form of art...
Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: All across the United States, public schools are making decisions about whether or not to continue to offer art as part of their curriculum. One thriving form of art is the makeup industry. Cosmetics is a $300 billion dollar a year industry, and young people are aspiring to enter the field. Here is one young girl's story about what she is doing to achieve her dreams.
Arts & Art Therapy
by Mark Brady, PhD
I was never a very good student in any of the schools I attended. I was kicked out of Katherine Brennan Elementary School – which currently ranks 534th out of 543 Connecticut elementary schools (because of kids like me?). But I wasn’t suspended for tromping Element No. 4 from the Periodic Table of Swearing in 20-foot high letters onto the pure white snow covering the hill behind the school...
Editor's Note: A reminder from Dr. Brady that we all have specific talents and gifts and we as parents (and educators), should honor that in our children by allowing them the freedom to explore their interests.

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: This is a 10-minute video featuring Jackie Merrill, who presents stories to elementary-aged children in the oral tradition, who then goes on to speak of the importance of the role of elders in our society and keeping the art of storytelling alive. She is also Chairperson of the Board of an intergenerational organization called Storybinders, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to telling (not reading) stories to children in schools.

Metaphysical philosophers believed the seat of Psychic Vision was an area in the forehead. They called this the third eye. This forehead/third-eye region is in fact the Vision Psychic Reception Area. Many religions anoint or decorate that forehead area in baptismal or other blessing rituals. Many schools of meditation tell their students to focus their thoughts there and visualize an image or scene...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Pete Sanders, Jr.'s article does a wonderful job at making intuition applicable and no-nonsense. He describes in biological terms how our physical vision has been fully developed through the years and our psychic vision hasn't. He describes that our psychic vision is only dormant and all we need to do is reawaken it. Mr. Sanders shares simple exercises that will help awaken your psychic vision to connect with your intuitive abilities "on command.
