Life Changing Meditation with Dr. Joe Dispenza
I've just come back from a weekend meditation workshop led by Dr. Joe Dispenza and his team. Dr. Joe is the author of Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, and most recently, You are the Placebo. The workshop was promoted as completely life-changing and that you would sit down to the medi
tation as one person, and get up from it as a totally new person. No truer words were ever spoken! This was one of the most profound and empowering workshops I have ever attended.

If 50 is the new 30 then why do I have to exercise so much?
I miss the ability to eat at will: sweets and nacho chips, macaroni and cheese, and sour cream on just about anything that wasn't moving. I miss the metabolism that allowed me to burn off the extra calories with almost no effort. But most of all, I miss my natural athleticism: my body's ability to do anything from walking to gardening, from the balance beam to Step aerobics, from hiking to swimming to bowling, all for hours on end and with nary a creak nor a protest. If 50 is the new 30, then why has no one informed my body?

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..."

The Path of Relationship - Excerpt from The Relationship Handbook by Shakti Gawain
Countless psychologists and teachers, with a variety of perspectives and different types of wisdom, focus on helping people improve their relationships. Many of these teachers are extremely effective and helpful to their clients, but they usually focus on fixing the relationship itself.
The Relationship Handbook: A Path to Consciousness, Healing, and Growth
(New World Library, November 1, 2014), beloved bestselling author Shakti Gawain, and her co-teacher for many years Gina Vucci, offer a different approach. They explain how relationships of all kinds — from romantic partners to coworkers to family and friends — can be our greatest teachers, if we know how to view them in the right way. Their approach shifts the focus away from relationships themselves and looks instead at the lessons they can teach us about ourselves.

Ask Li Chen: What is the Role of Animals In Our Lives?
Animals are having a variety of roles in your life. They are friends, teachers, healers, family. They remind you of your importance in the order of things. They remind you of your insignificance in the order of things. They mirror both your power and your ineffectualness. They continually teach you that you cannot destroy love, despite your lack of understanding, perhaps, of their needs and desires...
