REVIEW: Wisdom Chi Kung

Wisdom Chi Kung: Practices For Enlivening The Brain With Chi Energy By Mantak Chia 160 pages, paperback Published by Destiny Books Wisdom Chi Kung presented me with challenges I had not previously encountered in Mantak Chia’s books. They all take the Western reader deep into what is likely to be unfamiliar territory, as the human body is explored and explained in ways that seem strange and alien. Yet they use physiological terms and diagrams that work well to reduce the initial sense of … [Read more...]

Are You Sleeping in a Safe Place? The Hidden Danger of Geopathic Stress

By SANDY BRIGHTMAN The Earth has a natural background frequency of 7.83Hz, known as the Schumann Resonance, which corresponds to alpha brain waves in humans. When this frequency is thrown out of balance by other energies (either natural or manmade) we can also go out of balance. Our immune systems can weaken, thus inviting any number of illnesses to enter. NASA had to develop Earth Pulse Generators to mimic this natural frequency in spacecraft after finding astronauts lost tone and body mass … [Read more...]

Sacred Plant Healing: Shamanic Medicine & the New Science

By BRETT LOTHIAN In our modern age, all of us have been touched in one way or another by mental illness, either directly or indirectly. Depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, and an ever growing list of psychotic disorders and addictions are today rampant in our modern industrialised world.

Whilst we may never be able to go back to more simpler times, … [Read more...]

How Long Do You Choose to Live? The Truth About Longevity

By NICHOLAS CORRIN Recently my wife and I were driving back from Seattle to the island of San Juan where we live. To reach the island you must take a ferry from the small port town of Anacortes, some two hours north of Seattle, once the famed capital of Grunge. Now the stomping ground of Yahoo, Google, Amazon and Microsoft, this new Seattle is in constant motion… but not the motion of people walking about, conversing and interacting. As in so many places around the world today, Seattlites’ … [Read more...]

The Great Cholesterol Myth

By DR. MALCOLM KENDRICK — If you eat too much cholesterol, or saturated fat, your blood cholesterol will rise to dangerous levels. Excess cholesterol will then seep through your artery walls causing thickenings (plaques), which will eventually block blood flow in vital arteries, resulting in heart attacks and strokes....

Electro-magnetic Energy Pollution

By DANIEL REID — Science tells us that everything is energy and that matter is nothing more than energy in a different form.

In fact, the universe and everything in it is made up of different levels of vibration. - Dr. John Veltheim, author & energy therapist, 1992 In traditional medicine, the human energy system (HES) serves as a functional bridge between body and mind, and energy is the therapeutic medium … [Read more...]

What is Biodynamic Farming?

By WENDY E. COOK My first introduction to a biodynamic farm was over 35 years ago, yet it made such an indelible impression upon me that I can still vividly recreate the mem­ory. Nestling in the soft East Sussex hills, Busses Farm, run by Jimmy and Pauline Anderson, was a clear demonstration of a living example of biodynam­ics.  Walking through the kitchen garden was like being in a Monet painting. The French intensive biodynamic method was being practised, with raised beds and an exuberant … [Read more...]

Spiritism in Brazil: A Vision of Change for the New Medical Paradigm

By HUW GRIFFITHS— There was an article in a New Dawn Special Issue No. 5 (published in June 2008) which happened to mention the word ‘Spiritism’. I was unfamiliar with the term except that I’d heard it before in the context of a character called John of God, a spiritual therapist who lives in a remote part of central Brazil. He’s extremely well known in his home country for the fact that he performs operations on up to one thousand patients a day, sometimes using nothing more than an … [Read more...]
