Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shapeshifting is a classic shamanic experience or state or practice. It can happen on many levels, though of course we are always most intrigued by the physical shapeshift. John Perkins has studied and written extensively about shapeshifting, and he has practiced it in amazing and deep ways. In essence, he has gone through an incredible personal shapeshift - a transformation from the inside out - in his career and life - moving from a shady economic terrorist (supported by both corporations and governments) to an incredible teacher and shaman of the art of shapeshifting.

Editor´s Note: Michael Pollan, notable and talented author of several books, including his new released "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation", speaks out in this video on coffee and tea. He discusses the history of the caffeinated plants and how early on coffee and tea became acceptable, giving individuals a mood change when consumed. He compares the plants with other plants, not so acceptable like tobacco, and confirms that the mixture of caffeine compounded with other properties in coffee and tea, is what we crave and look forward to every morning.

Intuition & Symbols


by Annie Burnside, MEd

It is my grandest hope that parents from all religious, economic and cultural backgrounds begin to consciously integrate a new perspective—a soul perspective—into their beloved family while simultaneously raising consciousness in our world; one individual and one family at a time.

Ayurveda


by Jeannie Lawson

the only safe place in a storm
is in the eye
curl inside and wait
time stands still...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: As a poet, and also as someone who's suffered from depression and anxiety in the past, I discovered the power of poetry in dealing with my own difficult emotional states. As an art therapist, I use all art forms to help inform clients of their inner world. I initially asked Jeannie if she'd send me some poems for Mental Health Month, which is September here in Australia. Much time has elapsed since then but Jeannie's poetry still shows the beauty and power of working with our emotions in poetic form, bringing about an alchemical transformation so that depression is lessened, lightened but also given the validation it warrants as a signpost to our inner world.
