Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: I love the sound healing work of Tom Kenyon. He is so distinctive and very deep. Not for everyone. Some of my students get unsettled when listening. For me... his work is a go-to when I want to achieve a very connected, spiritual meditation. So, close your eyes, calm your mind and listen...

Editor's Note: This is the second half of simple notes made by one of Carl Jung's students as he dictated a description of each card in the Major Arcana. There's a bit about the 4 suits and Mary's take on how they relate to Jung's four personality types. The introduction and Jung's description of cards 1-14 is on ATH here.

I received a paper from the Jung Institute library in New York. It contains brief notes Hanni Binder took of Jung’s descriptions, in German, when he spoke to her about the Tarot cards. A friend of hers made a literal translation into English, typing it onto large file cards. What follows is Jung’s verbal description of the Major Arcana...
Editor's Note: Carl Jung's insights into the mystical and symbolic world adds depth to these simple notes made by one of his students as he dictated. Stay tuned for the second half which includes a bit about the 4 suits as well.

Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: A documentary following the first ever Bay Area Unified District Poetry Slam where over 25 high schools created slam teams and competed over two weeks in an amazing display of youth voice, community and explosive poetry! Shot and edited by Jamie DeWolf, additional shooting by Michelantony "Micah" Dunston and Gabriel Hurley. If you don't know about slam poetry or understand it, this video will introduce you to the power of the spoken word. Youth Speaks programs are giving students a voice - and an alternative to violence as a vehicle for self-expression. Watch this and be amazed at the talent and insight.

Editor's Note: Several studies show that children who practice yoga have less stress. This article describes one such students where students learn how to breath their way through difficult situations, how to refocus their thoughts and look at difficult situations differently, how to have better overall health from practicing asanas (poses) as well, and more. This looks like a vialbe alternative/addition to school curriculum. Namaste!
