Sleepless in South Salem
How much do I miss my sleep? Let me count the ways: I can't remember the last time I woke refreshed from six to eight unbroken hours of rest; hell, I can't remember much of anything anymore as short term memory seems to be the first casualty of sleep deprivation. I miss dreaming and when I say, "I am tired of waking up like the house is on fire, sweating, with my heart pounding from the surge of hormones," I mean it literally: I am tired of it.

God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels
God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels by Patricia Brooks
Review by Cheryl Shainmark --
In the second of what promises to be a lively series, (click here for a review of the first book), author Patrica Brooks shares more of her autobiographical tale of spiritual growth. Written in an upbeat and humorous fashion, God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels skips along in an engaging manner. Brook's stories are lovely, like little pearls strung together in a delicate necklace.

Going Beyond Our Genes: Bruce Lipton and the Study of Epigenetics
I first became interested in Bruce Lipton when I saw one of his
broadcasts on Conscious TV.
I found his lectures on
Biology and Belief,
and the power we have to affect our genes and DNA, to be absolutely fascinating. The idea that we can "switch off" a gene, or the predispostion to a disease fits with everything I know about the mind-body connection, and everything I believe to be true about the importance of mind over matter.

The World Peace Caravan
In the history of mankind we have not managed to create sustainable world peace yet. Perhaps we need fresher, less jaded, more forward-thinking and guileless minds to help find the solution. Perhaps we should ask our youth for their ideas. After all, they are our next generation of leaders. Why not engage their optimism, ingenuity and dynamism now?
The World Peace Caravan, www.worldpeacecaravan.org, is doing just that. A global peace movement that will culminate in a 12 day camel caravan from
Jerusalem in December, 2015, the World Peace Caravan is selecting a delegation of 12 Youth Ambassadors, ages 16-24, from a worldwide pool of candidates to spearhead the caravan.

Island Woman on Dreaming with the Animal Spirits by Robert Moss
When we discover any possible power animal connection, we want to (1) study the natural habits and qualities or the animal (2) track it through folklore, mythology and spiritual traditions (3) learn from the animal itself, by journeying to it, and then with it (4) feed and honor the animal in our bodies and our lives. I want to let one of my great teachers on this subject speak to you on this subject. She is a true "wolf woman". Born Huron, she was adopted by the Mohawk as a child and became the mother of the Wolf Clan of the Kanienkehaka (People of the Stone, as the Mohawk call themselves in their own language) and a powerful atetshents (dream shaman). She called me from across time....

The 11 Most Nutrient Dense Foods on the Earth by Kris Gunnars

Dr. Oz on GMO's: Petition the President NOW! by Heather Callaghan
Heather Callaghan writes on www.activistpost.com, One thing's for sure: when Dr. Oz speaks, people listen. Many a healthfood store and tea shop owner have saluted him when he mentions their goods on air - and their stores fill up. In the past he has drawn cheers and jeers for his fluctuating stances on organic food and genetically modified organisms
in the food supply. Today, he makes a very clear stance, as a concerned doctor, against the EPA's pending approval of a new, toxic pesticide intended for use on genetically engineered crops like corn and soy - this country's biggest crops and food ingredients.

Basic Goodness: Pema Chodron with Dale Asrael at the Omega Institue
“At this crossroads (for our planet) how humanity views itself at some deep level is going to make or break the situation.” —Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
The Buddhist principle of basic goodness is not particularly religious or secular. It’s not something esoteric or unrelated to us. It’s about how we feel about ourselves at the core. We are fundamentally open-minded, open-hearted, worthy, and good.
