Mirabai of Woodstock, NY

Mirabai, WoodstockI regularly visit Woodstock, NY, a town I love, and one of my first stops is always to Mirabai, my favorite bookstore. It is located in the heart of Woodstock, just across from the Bread Alone Bakery. The staff are so helpful and friendly, and I love it when I get to catch up with the owner, Audrey Cusson. She is a treat, with an enthusiastic and sparkling personality that makes me want to spend hours in her treasure trove.

The store carries an amazing array of books devoted to inspiration, transformation and healing, as well as salt lamps, World Music,  exquisite statuary and jewelry from Asia and the South Seas, crystals from Brazil and beyond, incense from India, meditation and yoga supplies, and more. They also hold a variety of workshops and offer psychic readings as well.

From their website we read: “Mirabai of Woodstock is dedicated to providing knowledge and experiences that inspire us to improve the quality of our lives and our world. Simply put, Mirabai offers nourishment for the mind and spirit.”

Mirabai: Sacred Space

Mirabai of Woodstock was founded as Mirabai Books in 1987 in the town of Woodstock, NY by Anne Roberts. After years of service to the community, Anne has departed Woodstock for the mountains of Vermont. Mirabai’s new owners, Jeff Cuiule and Audrey Cusson, moved up from New York City seeking a simpler, more meaningful way of life in the tranquil countryside of Woodstock. They are dedicated to carrying on the store’s mission — to provide spiritual and holistic knowledge and guidance to individuals trying to improve their lives and the world they live in.

Transform Your Headaches with Somatic Self-Care by Jan Mundo

What do you do when you get a headache or a migraine? Do you reach for your pain medication? If you get migraines, your doctor might prescribe one medication for relief and one for prevention, and you might also take an over-the-counter pain remedy. Your doctor has advised, as you’ve learned from experience, that it’s best to take medication sooner rather than later, before your migraine escalates and you lose a whole day, bedridden in a darkened room, unable to move or function normally.

Using Saffron to Boost or Restore Eye Health

Saffron, the world’s most expensive spice, has long been highly regarded for its distinctive golden color and subtle flavor. But did you know that it is also considered a potent healing agent?

Polarity Screens by Merryn Jose

| by Merryn Jose

“Always interested in preventative medicine for myself. I decided to pay a visit to a Holistic Health Exhibition held in London. I spent some time talking with a very enthusiastic sales person about the use of Polarity Screens which is a device that she claims has vastly improved her overall health by using them just twenty minutes twice a day. Personally I found the screens quite remarkable in their simplicity, which allows the body’s self healing mechanism to do all the work.”

The Health Benefits of Salt Caves

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Salt caves have been associated with healing for hundreds of years, and are a perennial favorite of European and Asian spa devotees… Himalayan pink salt is supposed to be the best and the purest for therapeutic purposes, but any salt minerals should work. Obviously, it can be pretty hard to trek to the Himalayas for the real deal, but not to worry. In the last few years “salt caves” have opened all over the country.

Is There a Place for Geomancy Today? by Tim Walter

Geomancy is a bizarre and highly contentious approach to mental wellness and spiritual harmony. ‘Geomancy’ isn’t even the correct term for the work that people such as myself do. I said as much in one of my recent YouTube videos www.youtube.com/c/KnightsRose . There isn’t really a label that is ‘correct’ for this practice. We use ‘Geomancy’ as that is the closest label we have and most people recognise what is being identified with such a label. Given that modern Geomancy has no official structure, and what each geomancer provides their clients is different, is there really a place for Geomancy in our modern world?

The Many Benefits of Mullein

Mullein is a flowering plant that is classified as a weed because it spreads quickly throughout gardens and public areas. Dr. Mercola writes, “The medicinal benefits of mullein were discovered quite early on. Early American settlers brought it from Europe because it was known for its ability to help treat various ailments. When the Native Americans established contact with the settlers and discovered the plant, they took advantage of it as well.” The leaves and flowers of mullein can be made into a tea, or used to make an oil.

FDA Targets Homeopathic Remedies

In December the Food and Drug Administration announced a major change in policy regarding homeopathic remedies. As reported in The Washington Post, CNN, and NPR, the FDA has proposed a more aggressive approach to testing and possibly banning, homeopathic drugs that it considers dangerous, especially those intended for children and others with serious illnesses, such as cancer. Critics of the policy change note that while most natural remedies are known for having fewer side effects than many mass market drugs, this could open the door to eliminating otherwise effective “non-pharma” remedies.
