The first question for us to consider is, how do we seek out beauty? We seek out beauty however we must! Years ago when I first moved to the heart of Chicago’s inner city, I was in shock. My thoughts were: “There is no beauty here… there is no nature, no flowers, nothing but lifeless gray! How can the people survive?...”
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Preventive Energy Medicine is all about maintaining our body, mind, and soul in "good" spirits, i.e. keeping our energy level such that life's challenges can be met with grace and courage. After hearing the quote that "beauty is the antidote to fear" Ida Lawrence tells us why it is imperative to find beauty in each our lives and what this discovery can do for our energy.

As we go about our daily routines we often pick up the energies around us. Everything has energy, even inanimate objects. People’s energy can be very powerful and affect us deeply in our spirits. Performing a regular spiritual cleansing meditation is a good habit to get into...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Cleansing meditations are good, good, good. Another one to try (our author gives two examples in this article)... is to find your quiet place and visualize that you are a strong, hearty tree (really work on getting the visual).

We humans are interdependent with all life, and we share a unity with all things here on our planet. We are connected to the oceans, the whales, the mountains, the bears, the trees and birds, the sun, moon, and stars. Witness this ancient Sammi Song: The sun is a circle. The earth is a circle. The moon is a circle. The drum is a circle. We are a circle...
Editor's note from Peter Clark: Tuva is an amazing land in the eastern part of Siberia with its own culture and rich history. With the help of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, Tuvan Shamanism has regained its respect and recognition among the Tuvan people and the regional government. This video goes back to a trip that members of the FSS took to Tuva in 1993.

My first teacher of shamanism in the physical world taught me how to journey on the sound of the drum. My second shamanic teacher told me: "The first time I went to the World of the Spirits I was standing with three other people in a small circle. We were all rattling...

An interesting difference between Western doctors and shamanic practitioners is that the shaman is a medium for guides and spirits beyond the physical plane. Doctors are primarily focused on the physical aspects of the healing process. A shaman operates a bit differently. They are inspired, even led, by their helpers. Imagine that each type of medicine a Shaman engages has a life and personality all its own. Now imagine that each form of medicine that is most likely to be effective, seeks out the shaman...

I'm sure that initial readings bring so many questions for your clients -- and I have so many. Please see them below.
