Galactic Gathering

Capricorn
(Dec 22- Jan 20)

This month, you will discover and bingewatch Carl Sagan’s original Cosmos series, and your perspective on the universe and your place in it will be forever changed. Afterwards, you will sit in silent wonder, marveling at the fact that every molecule of your body was born in the belly of a star. Yes, Carl, you will think, we are eternal; we are stardust. In this magical moment ...read more

The Pain-Body of My Motherhood

baby shoes

Pain settles around my throat as I try to come up with the words to explain myself. I fall deep into an inner silence when I even think of writing it down. I’ve tried for over a month to say the words I cannot say. I am pressed by my holodynes to be superficial about it. But right now, I cannot sleep until I press deeper into myself and float the groanings out of my fingers and into words.

The “F” Word Everyone’s Avoiding

hands

Forgiveness is, by far, the most powerful action we can take to heal our minds, our society and our nation.

Our world is full of broken systems, greed, fear and hate. We point fingers and blame others for our problems and rarely take ownership for how we have created the existence we experience, called life. Nowadays, we have access to so much information; every time we read a post on Facebook, listen to gossip talk, the news, engage in... read more

Farming Livestock Sustainably: Heritage Hills and Humane Living

Serenity at Heritage Hills

Animals emit fear, stress and pain when they are being killed or waiting to be slaughtered. These hormones lead to a number of serious diseases when humans consume this meat. More in-depth investigations of the problem show that industrial (or factory) farms often make animals live in unhygienic and inhumane conditions with no access to pasture, transparent air or daylight... read more

Solo in India

Rajasthani boy

Last year I took a two-month solo trip to India. There were many reasons for taking this journey, but the most important one of all was the one dictated by my higher self. I heard a very loud whisper in my heart that told me it was time for me to go…

In the last years before my trip, I had experienced a sort of existential despair that I think was based on the following: Our ability to dream is constantly challenged by society’s viewpoint... read more

Darkness, Light and the Primal Mother in the Modern World

Madonna

Was I so desperate to be loved? Was I so starved for the bonds of family that I would seek out captivity, and make myself a slave?

20 years ago, I quit my job as a phone psychic to go to America and marry a man I had met while travelling. My boss, the witch Kerry Kulkins, called me to say farewell. And, as witches are want to do, she said out of the blue, “It’s about time... read more

Mulla Nasruddin - 5

Früchtestilleben mit Sektkelch by Johann Wilhelm Preyer

Mulla Nasruddin lived far beyond his means, and his creditors were constantly hounding him. It had been going on for years, and after a while, the Mulla became so accustomed to it that it didn’t bother him anymore. He even began to enjoy the whole affair, and treated them with the highest grace and respect. One fine summer evening, a bill collector pounded on the door. “This is Mr. Smith again, Mulla!” he yelled ...read full story

Flowers and Seeds: Memoirs of a Hippie Girl In India by Ann BeCoy

Hippies in India

It is a rare person who can review their life without resorting to spin; after all, who among us truly wants to portray ourselves publicly, warts and all? Ann BeCoy, in writing about her year in India in 1972, has achieved this feat and taken the reader inside the mind of a naïve 19-year old from Toronto who accidentally finds herself on a continent about which she knows absolutely nothing... read more

Mapping the Multiverse: How Far to the Next Universe?

Flame Nebula

“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe” (Lao Tzu). Trust in the universe. This is the best pasta in the universe! People mean different things when they say “universe.” What does “universe” really mean?

One common understanding is that the universe means the totality of existence—everything that stretches out from our own small eyes...read more

Longing and Desire: Meditation and the Truth of the Heart

longing

But how do we know? How can we tell whether that still, small voice is coming from the mind or the heart? If our search is for a life like this, filled with love and bliss and freedom, we must learn to judge our own desires and determine their origin—the heart or the mind—and our own motivation. When we want something, is it because it will satisfy our ego, or because it will satisfy our soul?

There is no place ...read more
