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.

I would be standing on the shoreline looking out at the ocean, watching in trepidation as a huge, dark tornado was forming. Growing in power and strength, the entire sky would blacken, the wind would grow in intensity and the sand beneath my feet would vibrate...
Editor's Note: I have also occasionally chosen unwisely not to listen to the Spirits and every time, there was Hell to pay. It has been quite awhile since then and life has been much easier. Shamanism is about relationships, your relationship with your loving and compassionate teachers. The more you practice the easier it becomes to "know' the voice inside.

Hearing a story is like listening to music, the words falling off the teller’s tongue, onto our ears, and into our heart, setting thoughts and memories in motion. Stories are heard in the deep heart’s core and answer the burning questions that we all have. Who are we? Where did we come from? Who do we love? What have we forgotten that is important to remember?
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In this article, storyteller and mediator Mary Louise Chown reflects on her therapeutic work with story and children. She states: "Children especially need the experience of listening to stories and discovering connections with their own lives. This can strengthen their spirits for when they meet hard times, such as illness or death, or any kind of sadness or disappointment."

At the start of every ayahuasca ceremony, my maestro ayahuasquero don Roberto Acho goes around the room putting agua de florida cologne in cross patterns on the forehead, chest, and back of each participant. As he does this, he blows smoke from the powerful tobacco called mapacho into the crown of the head and over the entire body of each participant, and he whistles a special song of protection called an arcana...
