Chairwork is a psychotherapeutic technique using two chairs facing one another. The patient sits in one chair and has a dialogue with an imagined family member or other person sitting in the opposite chair; alternatively, the patient gets up and moves physically back and forth between the two chairs and speaks from different aspects of him- or herself...
Editor's Note: "Energy medicine" includes anything that moves energy for users, especially difficult to access unconscious energy, where most of our blocks are. Very effective modalities come into a culture like waves, beginning, rising, dramatically cresting, and then passing away from view.

If it were not for the powerful transformation that I experienced in every aspect of my life as a result of my exposure to Chiropractic and the philosophy of life it embodies, I would not be writing these words. Chiropractic changed my connection to my body and the way that I honor, respect and care for it...
Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Health is our birth right and comes from the inside out. It is run by an inborn intelligence, called innate. In this article Dr. Arno Burnier describes the powerful transformation that can occur when a vitalistic philosophy is observed and practiced.

I was born with severe clubfeet and had two surgeries by the age of two. Throughout childhood, I was placed in casts and braces, my legs confined to unnatural positions. I now have significant chronic lower body pain. The ability to move, which most children take for granted, was for me imbued with the threat of pain and failure...
Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: Embodied Imagination is a form of dreamwork that focuses on the physical sensations experienced in a dream, rather than intellectual analysis of any sort. Judith L. White's article provides a personal example of transformation achieved as a result of using this method.
“One lesson we can learn from pre-industrial peoples is the power of storytelling. I am struck by how important storytelling is among tribal peoples; it forms the basis of their educational systems. The Celtic peoples, for example, insisted that only the poets could be teachers. Why? I think it is because knowledge that is not passed through the heart is dangerous: it may lack wisdom; it may be a power trip; it may squelch life out of the learners. What if our educational systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow?”

When I first began meditating and read about things like the “path,” “way” and “journey,” I assumed that these terms were just metaphors that described a kind of personal growth that takes place on one’s spiritual quest. I had a vague notion that if I meditated I would gradually become a better person, and that it was this personal transformation that was referred to by the language of “paths” and “journeys...”
Editor's Note: Perspectives on enlightenment differ dramatically from tradition to tradition. In some, enlightenment is rarely, if ever, discussed at all. In others, it is seen as something only attainable by the ancients. What's so interesting about Hawaii-based meditation teacher Ron Crouch is that he spells out states and stages explicitly. Is this controversial? Yes. Is it a perspective worth considering? Count me in the camp that says "absolutely!"

Editor’s Note from Marie' Sakai: If we are off-balance and off-kilter, we are in need of becoming more conscious about our thoughts, our energetic patterns both physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. And it is through the Divine Feminine Conscious as AzRa and AnRa MaEl so eloquently put, that we must be aware and honour both our masculine energetics and our feminine side.
