by Dr. C. George Boeree

Many teachers make an attempt at teaching their students to think, but eventually conclude that only a small portion of them have any potential for it. After looking carefully -- phenomenologically -- at the act of thinking, I have come to believe that their despair is rooted in a misconception: They see thinking as something that happens only in our heads. It is this limitation that in turn limits their view of their students' potentials.

 

Editor's Note by Eden Kozlowski: This is fun. In this article Dr. Boerre focuses on thinking and taking it outside of the box - the box being our minds. He also talks about feeling being so connected with thinking. As a meditator who attempts non-thinking, it just makes it clearer to me why emotions are such a part of meditation...they are additional "thoughts" that also need to be let go.

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.

 

Intuition & Symbols


by Nicole DeNardo

Yoga encourages us all to look within, to sharpen our focus inward while allowing thoughts and distractions from outside our body to float away. In this spirit, our teachers often remind us not to focus on the practice of our fellow students, but instead to be completely engrossed in our own experience. However, it's inevitable that most of us take in all of the stimuli around us, including the postures of other students, even using what we learn from watching others to help our own practice...

 

Yoga


by Gregory Shepherd, PhD

As a student of the public school system and, later, as a university professor, I failed to question the authoritarian nature of education systems and the methodologies they employ. It wasn’t until I began researching the writings of Paolo Freire for a project unrelated to my field that my eyes began to open. His work, while certainly calling attention to the colonial mechanisms that have driven pedagogy, primarily empowers students and teachers with healing solutions...

 

 

Sacred Living


by Heinz Insu Fenkl

Now, whereas psychoanalysis is a private matter with the narrative happening behind closed doors, accessible only to the patient and doctor, Shamanism is radically different. In a shamanic ritual, the narrative is performed; it becomes known to an extended family or even an entire local community...

 

Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Mr. Fenkl continues to share how important story telling is for healing; so much so that Rita Charon, MD, PhD coined the term "narrative medicine" which is now a topic of study required for all second year medical students at Columbia University. Learn about the rich history and benefits of sharing and listening to stories for profound healing to occur. See Part 1.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Here on the mediation page we will feature many articles/videos on mindfulness as it encompasses the basic concept of all meditation practices – increasing awareness and being in the present moment. This video is a beautiful example of how a school can teach kids mindfulness on so many levels. From teaching students how to grow and sell produce to local markets, how to make solar powered vehicles, and how to listen to each other with empathy and understanding. Waikiki School has it goin ON!

 

Meditation


by Tzivia Gover

"What is Poetry?" I pose the question to my students, young women in their teens and early twenties. I am answered with silence. Seconds slink past. Finally, one student, who is meticulously made up from her mascara-ed eyes to her silver and blue polished nails offers, "I think it has to rhyme..."


Editor's Note from Barbara Lazarony: Tzivia Gover shares her first hand experience in leading writing workshops that are indeed not a luxury, neither for her students nor for herself.

Chios (pronounced chee’ ohss) Energy Healing is a fairly new healing art that works to correct energetic defects and helps restore the auric field to its natural healthy state. Chios works to restore the body’s energy system using special tools and techniques that work on the chakras and higher layers of the aura...

 

Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Chios Energy Healing is a powerful energy healing modality that offers both the healer and the recipient of the energy many remarkable benefits. Students fall in love with Chios because they can literally see and sense the energy working while they’re performing a healing.
