D.V.D’s All Is Made Beautiful: Native American Traditions With Warrior Woman Oh Shinnah Fast Wolf writes, “Meet Oh Shinnah Fast Wolf, the internationally renowned Warrior Woman and elder of the Apache People. Long before the Green movement, Native Americans knew how to care for Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

Animal World Elephants, Trauma and the Ego by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson explains, “… What I loved about this sanctuary is that it was the opposite of a zoo. Not only did the elephants have woods and streams and ponds and rivers to wander through (more than 2000 acres!), the public was not cordially invited to gape and throw popcorn at the elephants (but observation cameras allowed people to view online the real lives of real elephants). They lived, for animals not in their own environment, as close to a natural life as we can ever expect to see. It was truly an inspiration. The sanctuary was for the elephants, not for us…”

Spirituality Firewalk at 600 Degrees — The Beginning of Spiritual Lessons by Don Mordasini

Don Mordasini writes, “It is necessary for me to be consistent in spiritual practices so that the gifts of expanded consciousness; love, peace, compassion and oneness can be felt daily and not just help me in times of trial…My fire walk kick started a journey of self discovery. The thought that a fire walk could cure my anxieties was simplistic thinking. What I did find encouraging in my personal work and my therapy practice is that we have almost an infinite ability to transcend our limitations.”

Spirituality Returning Home – A Healing In Death by Triza Schultz Triza Schultz explains, “When we contemplate the meaning and purpose of our lives, we can look at life in spiritual terms and no longer define our world as chaotic or ourselves as pure victims of circumstance…There is purpose in everything. Its potential is always present right beyond our level of awareness, waiting for our acknowledgement and choices to create something wonderful. Look for those spiritual gifts of opportunity as they are presented. It’s usually karma in action!”

Books Earth Expressions: An Artistic Exploration Inspired by Crop Circles By Catherine Cogorno According to Catherine Cogorno, “Mother Earth is a canvas for the expression of beautiful works of art. Over 100 crop circles appear globally each year. Although the origin and purpose of many are a mystery, just seeing them is an awe inspiring experience. This unique book was designed for children of all ages. The images draw us in, sparking our creativity and connecting our inner self.”

Environmental Awareness Project Earth by
