A typical 'family' get together these days consists of step mothers, step fathers, step children, direct in laws, step in laws, separated but not remarried singles and parents, angry children, and confused animals! Not to mention step uncles/aunts, second marriage relatives etc...

 

Editor's Note from Carolyn White: The holiday season may be hazardous to your health, especially your heart, according to a study  published in Dec. 14, 2004 issue of Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.  Researchers examined records for 53 million deaths from natural causes over a 26-year period (1973-2001), excluding suicides, homicides, and accidents. The study shows death rates peak during Christmas and New Year's, with coronary issues leading the cause of death, i.e the "Merry Christmas Coronary" or the "Happy New Year Heart Attack."

 

Energy Medicine


by Diana Raab

When I was ten years old my grandmother and caretaker committed suicide in her bedroom beside mine. It was Labor Day weekend and I knocked on her bedroom door to see if I could swim in a friend’s pool. With a child’s intuition, I knew something was seriously wrong and phoned my mother at work...

 

Editor's Note from Barbara Lazarony: Diana Raab shares that "putting words on the page is a form of therapy that doesn't cost a dime and it is certainly a productive way to deal with the scars and dark places from our pasts." Loosing someone dear to us, like a Grandmother is certainly difficult, but writing in a journal can be one way to express the sadness and loss.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Steffany Barton, RN

As we approached home in the brown conversion van, I became aware of cars scattered around the driveway. After having been out of town for the weekend, certainly not planning on nor prepared for guests, the sight took me and my family off guard...

 

Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: In this tender article, Steffany Barton, RN shares her personal story of a beloved friend who committed suicide. After years of asking why, it was during a reading for another that she received her answer. This article is for anyone who has been touched in any way by the tender topic of suicide and for those who wonder, "Why?"

 

Intuition & Symbols


by Mada Eliza Dalian

Like many, when I heard the news about Robin Williams' suicide I had a pause. This naturally brings up a surprise and sadness and feels like a loss for so many of us whose lives he filled with laughter through his personality and amazing talent. Suicide is one of life's paradoxes just as happiness and sadness are...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Mada examines Robin William's death and the issue of suicide today. As we know, his death has sparked a national conversation. Prior to this, the subject like those affected has generally been avoided. Perhaps it will take the death of this beloved man to open our hearts and minds and broaden the discourse. It is my heartfelt wish that we embrace and support families like his who inherit the challenging legacy of suicide.

 

Sacred Living


by Irving Karchmar

The moon is always full
Our human eyes
See only its phases...

 

Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: "The Moon is always Full" reminds us that we usually see the world fragmentally, "in snippets", not the whole picture. Indeed, the simple truth that we see the moon changing, when it's only its' phases, and the moon itself remains round or full always, can add to our understanding of love's labours lost as a necessary period, dynamics of Love, which we wrongly saw as a crash of all hopes and maybe a cause for the suicide. Or that we were wrong when angry at somebody because we didn't see the roots or the crown of the situation. It takes time, always, and patience, to go through "phases" of our distresses and see the wholeness. Then we are rewarded.

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: What would it to get this school on the right track? This school receives kids who've been expelled from other schools. Yet, they have no weapons, suicides, or expulsions. Why? It's what the kids are eating. Can school violence be prevented? Appleton school district shows us how.

 

Naturopathy


by Dr. David Hanscom, MD
Guest Editor of Integrative Medicine

Almost every person I speak with who is suffering with chronic pain is also experiencing extreme adversity in the rest of his or her life. The stories I hear each day are mind-boggling. They include abuse, murder, family suicides, extreme financial struggles, homelessness…the list goes on and on. The anger I hear from my patients as they tell me their stories is more than legitimate...

 

 

Integrative Medicine


by Jeremy Taylor

When "death" appears in a dream, it is a very reliable indicator that the dreamer is growing and changing so profoundly that only the "death" of the old "me", (or part if "me"), is an adequate symbol of the psycho-spiritual process that is taking place...
