Books The Power of Premonitions: How Knowing the Future Can Shape our Lives by Larry Dossey, M.D. More than an examination of case studies, The Power of Premonitions reveals the world of science and research that proves the human capacity for knowing the future. Experiments consistently show that human beings are as wired to know what’s coming next as we are to see, feel, hear and think. Dossey uses cutting-edge science to prove the value of what had long been considered the provenance of mystic charlatans and to show readers how to cultivate their natural abilities. This is a book for the skeptical mind, but it’s also for the believer’s heart–because its author possesses the rare gift of having both.
Environmental Awareness Growing Food in the City by Kim Matthews
“Urban Agricultureis the social movement to create space to allow people to grow their own food in or near their city. Some of the produce is marketed, while other projects, such as community gardens, are designed to give participants the opportunity to grow food for their individual needs. The concept is based around the idea that cities are stronger when people are able to feed themselves through their own investment and actions. A garden doesn’t grow in isolation, but it is one piece of a larger, interconnected food system.”
Conscious Eating Cilantro — the natural chelator by Dr. David G. Williams “There’s nothing I like more than learning about inexpensive, common herbs or spices that exhibit unusual healing properties. Historically, the use of herbs and spices in cooking evolved as a method to preserve foods and make them safer to store and eat. We’ve grown accustomed to using these items to enhance or accentuate the flavors of food, but researchers continue to discover herbs have much more to offer than just good taste. Cilantro is such an herb and one of its medicinal benefits was uncovered through the work of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura.”
People Leap of Faith by Mitzi Adams and Ryan Schmidt “It’s almost as if I spent the last two years opening my eyes to the world. Rather than closing myself off in fear of losing people, like I lost my mom, my uncle, and my friend, I decided to open up even more. I give more love, more smiles, more hugs, and even more compliments. Ultimately, I now live my life with my own goals, aspirations, and agenda…I could’ve stepped out on dance, and on life, but with the support of family, friends, yoga, and Jin Shin Jyutsu, I can now enjoy spreading that positive energy to others.”
Consciousness The Pine Cone and Life by Art Mason “It is found at the center of the brain. It is a small gland about the size of a grape, with amazing power and ability. For most of the population it is close to non functioning. For a few it is in full swing. The hierarchy of all religions are aware of it, but don’t talk about it. The medical world uses it as a reference point when scanning for tumors. But this small gland is something we all want to awaken because it will change your life.”
“We are hungry for the sacred, for meaning to return to our lives. And this meaning is waiting within us–the sacred is present in the symbols of our dreams. But first we have to create an inner space that is not corrupted by outer desires, purify ourselves and our intention. In the Native American tradition the individual often had to fast and be purified by a sweat lodge in order to be ready to fully experience the inner world. Any dreamwork, but especially spiritual dreamwork, requires a continual attitude of inner attention and a commitment not to use the energy of the inner for personal gain. Dreams can reconnect us with the sacred but only if we learn how to be receptive and respect their symbols and images.”
Traditional Chinese Medicine Ancient Chinese Exercise: Crane Exercise for Self Healing by Drew DiVittorio Drew DiVittorio is a nutritional consultant, a health coach, and is national board certified in Traditional Chinese Herbology by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists and Oriental Medicine. “The Crane Exercise is designed to strengthen the organs within the trunk of the body.
