Tender, loving care" are the words that I write on the bottles of lavender that fill my laboratory. Lavender is a plant spirit medicine that exudes the qualities and essence of the Divine Mother energy. It is a beautiful, elegant, powerful, loving essence that is always ready to nurture and care for our bodies, minds and spirits...

 

 

 

Aromatherapy


by Edmond Wollmann

Every year in the month of October, before the calendar turns over to November, we get on our masks and costumes to encounter the ‘spirits of Halloween’. Why?

Masks cover the hidden and are created to represent and convey the camouflaged concepts behind them...

 

Astrology


by Jade Wah’oo Grigori

I will begin this article with two fundamental descriptive definitions of Spirit and Soul. So very often I hear people speak of Spirit and Soul interchangeably; at other times I find that when discussing Spirit and Soul we are using fully different references, resulting in confusion...

 

 

 

Shamanism


by Jacob Teitelbaum, MD

I remember when I was a kid and used to see shows and medical exhibits on how awful primitive medicine was and how wonderful our new "scientific" medicine is. The exhibits would include Aztec skull cutters to make holes to let out evil spirits, leeches, snake oil salesman, and such. We may have moved past some of these (well, instead of leeches we have lab blood-drawing stations), but as we see, historically, the wheel continues to turn...

 

 

Integrative Medicine


by Gretchen Crilly McKay

I am a sangoma. What does this mean? A sangoma is an African traditional healer who merges with her ancestors for the purpose of healing. It is a spiritual calling, not a chosen profession. An apprentice sangoma, called a thwasa, studies with a mentor for approximately two years and must learn how to prepare herbal medicines (muti), how to interpret dreams, how to incorporate spirits, how to diagnose illness through divination with bones, and how to heal both physical and spiritual illness...


Editor's Note: Having personally had the privilege of working with Gretchen in the past, I can attest to her amazing abilities and skills as a shamanic healer trained in the African heritage.

by Arvick Baghramian

Shamanism is humanity’s oldest spiritual practice. But what do we mean by that? And what do we mean when we say that we are spiritual or trying to live a spiritual life? Spirituality has always been one of the focal points in my shamanic workshops...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Arvick's book, The Magic of Shamanism, is a rich exploration of shamanic healing and traditions. This article is an excerpt from it on spirituality and how through shamanic journeying we deepen our understanding of personal and universal truth. She shares how the symbolic messages communicated during journeys help us transcend internal obstacles and limitations.

 

Sacred Living


by Michael Watson

We are initiated many times in our lives. First loves, school graduations, and marriages are initiations, as are illnesses, broken hearts, and job losses. Death may be seen as yet another initiation.

 

Thirty years I worked for three years with Dhyani Farmer (now Wyahoo) and Louise Sunfeather. I had landed in Vermont, after fleeing the pollution and arrogance of Washington, D.C.. Louise was working to integrate traditional Cherokee teachings and Western ideas about psychotherapy...

 

Shamanism


by Howard G. Charing

In traditional wisdom and knowledge, life is a continuum that does not end at the moment of death. One of the most important traditional tasks of the seer, shaman, medicine man or woman is to assist people who are either dying or the spirits of those who have died to make the transition into great domain of consciousness...
