Some herbalists hold the idea that there can be a “clinical herbalist” who is practicing herbology but doesn’t know or recognize plants and many times cannot make the simplest medicine. We have seen many sincere students of acupuncture or naturopathy come out of schools who are extremely stressed due to the academic and financial pressures. They were taught all the academically appropriate things but they were not shown what it is to be a True Human being nor were they given the initiatory steps to what a true healer is.

Are you concerned with your animal companion’s state of health? Does s/he just not have that glow of good health?...
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Dr Glen Dupree is my teacher and mentor of homeopathy. The last week of February 2011, Dr Glen became a patient of homeopathy. A year later, he taught a landmark webinar in miasms - I was blessed to participate in the course. (He had been told in 2011 he would not be here.) It is now two years after Dr Glen's horrible illness; he is losing the battle. But he won so much for his students and patients. I am one of many grateful students; I expect it will take the rest of my life to really have a grasp of this wonderful modality. Thank you Dr Glen for your inspiration. Here's Dr Glen's Overview of Homeopathy.

I’ll begin by apologizing for even mentioning the BTS-word while summer is still (imho) in full flower. But by now it’s a quaint, old-fashioned notion that vacation extends until Labor Day — ha! These days some students have to devote that three-day weekend to cranking out their first papers or projects...
Editor's Note from Sylvia Poareo: In this first part of a two part series, Dr. Axness offers excellent suggestions on how to maintain balance and support our children to have a well rounded life as they re-enter school. The perfect article to read as you and your family head back to school!

It’s easy to understand why John Friend highly recommends the book Yoga Body: The Origins of Modern Posture Yoga “for all sincere students of yoga.” Because, Mark Singleton’s thesis is a well researched expose of how modern hatha yoga, or “posture practice,” as he terms it, has changed within and after the practice left India...

I had my YIP class on Saturday. Lovely weather (I challenged the gray skies and they turned to blue...yoga power), devoted students; a delightful practice, all in all. As I was setting up--which involved picking up a few cigarette butts, tossing out a beer can and unrolling my mat--a couple was letting their dog chase a few ducks and take a swim. The woman looked over, saw my mat, and gathered her crew, "Oh look, I'm sure the ladies don't want to watch you and a wet dog while they do yoga." They hustled off...
It’s no secret that students all around the world are dreading the fact that it is already a week into August and the back to school era is just around the corner. What they may not know, is that the planet’s forests are dreading their return as well!
