Old Dog by Nancy Mehagian

| by Cheryl Shainmark

If you’re looking for a gift book for the children in your life, I highly recommend Old Dog by Nancy Mehagian, illustrated by Yoko Matsuoko. There are a million books about puppies out there, but this is the first I can think of that introduces children to the idea of a “senior” dog. Written with real warmth, the author has captured the joy and rewards of loving and caring for a beloved older pet.

Qigong Masters & Building the Immune System

| by Merryn Jose

During this time of uncertainty amidst the corona virus, there has been a feeling of helplessness while we wait: wait to leave our houses, wait to develop a vaccine, wait to get the “all clear” signal so that we can resume our lives, our jobs, and the economy. It sometimes feels like there’s nothing we can do to help the situation.  I believe that one of the best ways to use this enforced quiet time and help ourselves is to build our imune systems so that we are better able to resist or lighten the effects of the virus. To that end, I have increased my usual daily qigong practice to include routines from a few of these wonderful Qigong Masters.

The Science Is In: Meditation Affects Aging and Telomere Length

Science is all about precision, controlled studies, and measurable, repeatable results. So for years researchers resisted working on alternative practices such as meditation, dismissing the few studies done as “fuzzy science,” “subjective,” or “impossible to duplicate.” But as research methods have advanced, so has the accuracy of the latest research. There is ample evidence now that stress leads to increased risk of health problems and that meditation reduces stress. What’s new are the studies showing how stress is related to aging and telomere length.

Shades of Love in the Time of Cholera

| by Cheryl Shainmark

These are strange times we are living in. In the last few weeks since Covid 19 has escalated from dominating the news cycle to directly impacting our lives, I keep hearing that phrase over and over. And while the news has focused on number of deaths, the lack of a cohesive Federal response, school closings, and potential loss of income, nobody seems to be focusing on the effect the Corona virus has had on love and dating.
