Poster_Eric_Pearl_US

Discover why hospitals and universities are investing time and money in researching the Reconnective Healing. On October 22, founder Eric Pearl will present his experiential workshop at the New York Open Center to discuss these new frequencies of healing and give live demonstrations with a limited number of attendees. Reconnective Healing is a comprehensive, yet simple and easy-to-learn, healing approach, which completely transcends “energy healing” and its complex rituals and techniques. It accesses vibrational frequencies that are self-correcting by nature and are accessible to everyone.

Dear Natural Awakenings Readers and Friends,

Going Green, Being Conscious, Living Balanced and Awakened are so many terms that we hear over and over again nowadays. What I hope to bring you in this issue is that these terms are not radical changes or some bandwagon that you have to jump on but simply a mere thought to question each action that you take in daily life. How it affects you, others, and the world. Almost like the green holy trinity.

Dear Natural Awakenings Readers and Friends,

Psst, are you awake? This month, we explore the far-reaching, yet fundamentally personal, topic of “Awakening Humanity.” At its foundation, awakening humanity is about making the shift of our individual focus from “me” to “we.” In our feature article, “It’s All About We” (page 18) Linda Sechrist explores this topic as it relates to several recent literary works. You’ll learn how thought leaders such as Jack Canfield and Lynn McTaggart can help us see through the “what’s mine is mine, what’s yours is yours” mentality into a “me-we” way of thinking that can help inform wise decision-making about everything from environmental stewardship to economics to health and spiritual development.

What Happened to New York?

Screen shot 2012-11-02 at 2.39.49 PM

Sitting here after days with no power assessing what has happened.  A crazy time to be a New Yorker, or a resident of the NorthEast for that matter for the widespread destruction we have encountered.  Some lost lives, some lost everything, some lost nothing and are operating normally and some are half way in between.  It really is hard to know what to say in a time like this, when almost everyone you know is facing some type of hardship.  In this moment, we are seeing what the bare necessities of life are and we feel abundant when we have heat, warm food and shelter.  Our daily lives prior to this disaster were truly over-indulgent.

Dear Natural Awakenings Readers and Friends,

"Does one have the power to change the course of their path or is it preset before us?"  This is the conversation I had recently with a good friend. I told her this…I started the NYC Edition of Natural Awakenings Magazine 3 years ago and stood in the middle of Times Square with a paper magazine blowing in my hand, looked up at the sky and said…how am I going to do this in the media mecca of the world?

Dear Natural Awakenings Readers and Friends,

Here we are in the high tides of summer, enjoying the warmth and the ebb and flow of mother natures hot days and stormy nights.  As you make time to enjoy the summer and the freedoms it has to offer, I would like for you to take the time to get out to a park, kick your shoes off and connect with the earth we walk on, inspired by the article Barefootin': It Grounds Us, on page 22.  With the hustle and bustle we face on city streets running through crowds of people, up and down subway stairs, how many times do we make the time to take our shoes off and reap the earth's energy for wellness in an outdoor place that will allow us to do so?

Dear Natural Awakenings Readers and Friends,

 
Here is it….Summer!  The best time of the year, or maybe I am biased being a Leo and living for the sun.  We have a great article this month that really made me ponder why summer brings joy to so many other than the typical reasons of lighter schedules and less routines.  On pages 18-20, you will see an account of simple summer pleasures from Natural Awakenings publishers nationwide and from local readers of Natural Awakenings Magazine right here in New York.  There were two fine things I walked away with after reading these testaments.
