Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video was shared with me from our new editor on PsychoSpiritual. I think it is worth sharing because it is done by a group of students at Lakeside High School in Seattle, WA.

Many of my students, clients and colleagues have been asking more and more about books and resources to help quench their thirst for knowledge and help propel their spiritual journey forward. This is just scratching the surface, but here are a few books that have helped me along the way...I hope in some way they speak to some of you...
Editor's Note from Vasilena Toneva: Autumn is a wonderful time to curl up with a great book. This article gives some great suggestions that can deepen your journey along the path of yoga.

I am sOoOo thankful that I was encouraged to read this (talking to you, Beth!). I am calling this my new “guide book” in terms of helping my own students with chronic pain/depression via meditation/mindfulness. It has given me more ways to discuss the neurology and constructs of pain, and it will help you if you are struggling with consistent pain of any kind, beyond just the back...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: I think this book is a must read for anyone with chronic pain of any kind.

To me the sun-sign books leave out a really important piece of information that could promote the better identification. Earth is a great big schoolhouse and we are all students. You do not come in as a master of your sun-sign you come in as a student of that sign. If astrological authors would just add the words "to learn" to the beginning of each sun-sign heading, it would give a more accurate perspective. You are here to learn or develop the qualities of your particular sun-sign.

It is easy to assume Breema is just bodywork when we see photo- graphs of practitioner and recipient moving in perfect ease and balance. If you’ve already received a treatment, you probably know what a transformational effect it can have. However, Breema is more succinctly a practical teaching including bodywork, self-bodywork and nine universal principles, supporting recipients and students to have the experience of bringing mind, body and feelings into harmony...
Author's Note: “There’s not an artificial way of doing Breema that has to be over-come,” said Jon Schreiber, Director of the Breema Center, when I talked to him for this article. This new way of using the mind and body provides us with profound support to experience that freedom really is in this moment. Breema helps us again and again to move from complication to simplicity. When we have a taste of that, it is clear that this is what we have been searching for.

As children, we are taught to share. We are taught this in school, in the home, and in church. As adults, we learn about compromise. Both are wonderful lessons, but can be devastating when sharing and compromise turns into unhealthy sacrifice...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: "Selfishness" is ongoing theme in my classes. Great example... many of my new students express guilt about taking the opportunity to learn meditation and therefore allotting time to get deeper with themselves. Hence, I LOVE to share this article. You must give to yourself first – as selfish as it may sound. That way, you have the energy to give to others and can also expand what you give! And, Jennifer also discusses ways to find balance or to check in.
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The best teacher is a teacher who loves the students. Dogs love unconditionally. Yori, a service dog to autistic students, helps his mom teach her students and show the children love – helping them learn.

I meet all sorts of people who’ve had all sorts of experiences and they’re still confused and not doing very well in their life. Experiences are not enough. My students learn that if they have so-called experiences, I really don’t care much about hearing about them...
Editor's Note from David Pratt: In this short interview, Charlotte Joko Beck emphasizes the simplicity and one-pointedness of meditation. She tells us that meditation isn't about being special, but simply being aware of what's going on - aware of what is. (This is the first installment of an interview Donna Rockwell did with 4 well-known meditation teachers. In each one, she asks some of the same questions.)
