Books Health: It’s All About Consciousness by Ivan Rados

“Disease–dis-ease–is the result of energy blockages caused by stressful experiences we haven’t fully worked through, allowed ourselves to feel, and really accepted. Healing comes from an aware detachment from those past experiences.

Conscious Eating Flax Seed: The Low Carb Whole Grain by Laura Dolson “It may be tiny, but it’s mighty: The flax seed carries one of the biggest nutrient payloads on the planet. And while it’s not technically a grain, it has a similar vitamin and mineral profile to grains, while the amount of fiber, antioxidants, and Omega-3 fatty acids in flax leaves grains in the dust. Additionally, flax seed is very low in carbohydrates, making it ideal for people who limit their intake of starches and sugars. And its combination of healthy fat and high fiber content make it a great food for weight loss and maintenance — many dieters have found that flax seed has been a key to keeping them feeling satisfied. Flax seed is high in most of the B vitamins, magnesium, and manganese…”

Consciousness The Mindful Side of Art By Erica Mazzeo “Over the years I have seen it happen all too often, while subbing in elementary schools, art classes and even witnessing it first hand in art galleries — judgment is still such a heavy part of the way we perceive beauty.

I work hard to explain and demonstrate that art is more than just what you see on a page, a huge misconception. Yes, there is an end product but that is only one dimension of the process of creating.”

Spirituality The Magic of the Winter Solstice By Stephen Thomson

“As we are nearing the end of yet another year, we need to take some time to journey into what we hold in our hearts and minds that we are unwilling to let go of or change. The solstice marks the end of a calendar year, so it is a times to think about what we want to bring to an end. Would we be happier giving up the telling and retelling of our “story?” Are there people who we need to let go from our lives, so we can continue to grow and become the spiritual person we aspire to be?…”
