I can't recall exactly when I started using teaching stories to share yoga on the mat but I do know that these moments of sharing something personal to highlight a key learning point changed the impact of my teaching on my students...

 

Editor's Note: I love how the author talks about your yoga mat as your mirror. It's one place where you can see if you're helping or hindering your personal growth. How do you react when you've achieved a new pose...or better yet, when you've fallen out of a pose? She goes onto describe the mat as always telling the truth. When looking honestly in the mirror (or during time on your yoga mat), notice ways in which you, not anyone else, can revolutionize your life!

 

Yoga


by Melanie Channell
Asst. Editor of Energy Medicine

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.

 

Energy Medicine


by Deborah Adele, MA

I recently heard a story about a teacher who was instructing on laziness. He proceeded to tell his students that there are 2 kinds of lazy. One is the kind where a person just sits around doing nothing...

 

Editor's Note: This piece is short, but meaningful. In yoga one tries to be present and practice mindfulness. The author, Deborah Adele, tells an anecdote that leaves you reflecting on your own ability to be present.

Many people are being drawn to learning about healing modalities such as Reiki because it promotes self-awareness and helps them to find a sense of balance and perspective. With daily practice of simple energetic techniques and clear intent, Reiki students find they are able to relax, detaching from the moment to moment pressures of the outer world...

 

Editor’s Note: Jaime Tanna is a London-based Reiki Master whose road to Reiki was as much a spiritual one as a physical one. This article covers the challenges in finding our purpose and our inner power and how Reiki can help get us in touch with it.

Editor's Note: Sam Harris is an American author, neuroscientist and CEO of Project Reason. He received a PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, and has a BA in philosophy from Stanford University. Here, he discusses meditation as a tool for personal evolution as opposed to a religious experience. As a teacher of Vedic Meditation, one of the things I tell my students is that meditation is for everyone, regardless of your religious (or secular) affiliations.

 

Meditation


by Janet Lansbury

A couple of years ago I was driving my daughter home from high school, and she shared something from her Human Development class that day.  The students were asked to draw an illustration of their emotional state. “And mom,” she said, “everyone drew pictures of stacks of books and things like that.  I think I’m the only one who’s not stressed..."

 

Editor's Note: Beautiful steps to follow with the goal on less stressed kids in mind. Given the world we live in and all that we face daily these steps are incredibly helpful.

Q: WHAT IS NARRATIVE MEDICINE?

A: It’s knowing what to do with stories.
My group and I have developed many, many narrative practices and routines for teaching and clinical work. One is called the “parallel chart.” We give clinicians or students this instruction: Write the things about your care of a patient that do not belong in his or her chart. These parallel charts expose matters that open up in the care of an individual patient, even if they’re simply things like “I’m angry at this guy,” or “This woman makes me sad...”

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In this short article, Mary Phillips-Sandy interviews Rita Charon, Director of the Narrative Medicine programme at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, about the use of story in medicine...
