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.
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: If you've ever worked with tones and colors you know the power they both encompass for transformation and balancing. This simple yet powerful meditation uses sound and color to help balance and harmonize your chakras. Treat yourself to a chakra balancing by watching.

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.
