Born to well-educated parents in Chicago as an autism-spectrum child, David Patten was repetitively misdiagnosed in the 1950’s, a time when autism was little understood. After a youth of a severe disorientation and isolation, the seriously dyslexic Patten made a living dealing drugs and engaging in other street-level enterprises...
Note from Editor, Sherri Carter: Here is Part 2 of a Q&A with David Patten, author of Dummy, A Memoir, which goes through David's journey with autism, a loving mother, and transformation. A very inspirational story! See Part 1.

Just as the physical body has seven (or more) identifiable energy centers, or swirling vortices of subtle energy, so does the planet have chakra centers that govern her health and act as a reflection of her energetic evolution...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: One of the best decisions I made was to travel to Sedona for the Venus Transit. Being in the energy of the vortices was powerfully transformational. Christina Sarich's article inspires future travels to sacred destinations. First stop, Mt. Shasta!
Interviewed by Susan Lutz,
ATH Co-Editor of Organic Living
The Institute is a school of human transformation. Shunyamurti, the director and founder of Sat Yoga, began a practice of what he called Transformational Healing several decades ago. It is the union of meditation with a theoretical understanding of the human ego structure and its dynamics and a process of inner work, including self-inquiry, dreamwork, energy transmission, and classical yogic practices to attain purification of the soul...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A community bonding in the path of spirituality and the work of transformation and feeding it's soul with enlightment would be missing a step if it fed it's body with conventional food. Sat Yoga in Costa Rica is a wisdom and retreat center that offers a chance to open up the possibilities of one's own journey. Organic, delicious, and gorgeous food sets the table at the Institute and Radha heads the kitchen along with a tantalizing selection of cooking classes so the wisdom can truly be taken home.

The Law of Action is about embracing what is possible and moving towards those possibilities, creating them with each step we take. This Universal Truth always expands and uplifts our current experience. If the action you take moves you backward, diminishes, or is based in fear, then you are not utilizing this powerful transformational tool to it’s fullest potential. In fact, this is true for all Universal Truth...
A Note from Editor Sherri Carter: Here is an excerpt from my best selling book, Live Your Intentions, The Power of Action, which is now available for free in the amazon.com lending library. I practice this chapter almost daily, always asking myself what limiting beliefs do I need to release and reframe so I am always moving forward, living and creating what is possible.

Some of the most transformational, not to mention, painful losses for me and for many I have known who have been in treatment with me, have not been around death and dying, but the more mundane losses. These losses do not have rituals, religious or secular, prescribed for them...
Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: Grief, loss, and shame are three areas of human experience that everyone experiences at one time or another. Dr. Benatar explores how these painful emotions are often experienced and offers suggestions for moving toward comfort, solutions, and recovery.
by Swati Chopra
If there is some transformation, and it is genuine, from deep within, it will affect every aspect of one’s being. For me, one of the ways this has manifested is through awareness of the interconnectedness of life and its innate sacredness. This has led to an attempt to live consciously, gently, kindly...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: Introducing contemporary Indian writer Swati Chopra to our ATH readers. Chopra writes on spirituality and mindful living - about living consciously and ethically. "I find if I hurt another, the greatest wound is inflicted on my own being..." Engaging, opinionated and sacred writing.
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: So you still think you don’t have time to exercise? Renowned body transformation expert, Stephen Cabral, takes Diet.com’s host, Sara, through a 4-minute workout, originally created by a Japanese scientist who wanted to increase aerobic capacity plus increase metabolism up to 36 hours post-workout. This interval program of 20 seconds on with 10 seconds rest for a total of 4 minutes is best for someone who has already been exercising on a regular basis. If you are a beginning exerciser and want to try it, ease into the workout by reversing the intervals, doing 10 seconds on with 20 seconds rest.
