Proper Breathing for Relaxation

Breathing is a natural function that the body performs without much help from us, however, we can effect our breathing so that proper breathing becomes the basis for good stress management and good relaxation techniques.

Practice these breathing tips each morning before rising, and each evening upon retiring, and anytime during the day when you want to take a “peace” break. Use proper breathing techniques to help control your stress response… Continue

Learning About Astrology

Astrology is a tool to help us see ourselves and others differently. Astrology is a guide to personality structure, and the path of the soul. Astrology is one of many keys that fit the door of the unconscious so that we can get a glimpse of who we are, and our place in the universe. Astrology is a spiritual science that involves the relationship between the larger universe outside us and the personal universe within us. All of us are involved in the same process of soul development and growth.… Continue

Maybe we could do it better...

We don't trust practically anything government touches anymore. Left, right, center, we don't see ourselves represented in the decisions government makes or the process they use to make them.

What if some significant decisions were put in the hands of well-informed citizens--call them 'everyday,' 'average,' 'common'-- people with no axe to grind and no…

How to Eat Better for Better Health

MORE THAN FARMING: Young Farmers and the New Food Movement


There's a growing movement throughout this country to return to a sustainable way of farming, a holistic way of cultivating the soil, a conscious way of eating, and a more enlightened way of looking at our relationship with food. And within that movement, incredibly inspiring work is being carried out by young farmers. These highly-motivated, intelligent, idealistic, and sometimes unconventional folks are both carrying the torch passed on by their predecessors, and… Continue

If Your Really Want to Avoid the Flu | Health Reporting

Editor's Note: Building your own natural immunity is essential to avoiding the flue and it's symptoms. Our own Jim Jordan is beginning a series of classes next month on "Natural Vs. Artificial Immunity." I'd highly recommending your attending his classes if you want to build your immune system.

Staying healthy and avoiding all types of flu has nothing to do with getting a vaccine and everything to do with leading a healthy lifestyle.

I have not… Continue

How do we re-establish connection when communication breaks down?

If we feel resentful or victimized by an interaction or lack of response, we are not asking ourselves these 3 critical questions: what’s my unfulfilled expectation in this situation, or, what intention isn’t being realized that I am disappointed or frustrated about? or, what do I need to say that I am not saying?

When there is a communication breakdown, how do we re-establish trust? It is personally challenging to recognize and own our 50% contribution to all breakdowns in which we… Continue

You know that definition of "insanity" that everyone quotes?

OK, with everything else going on, this one's not exactly on the front burner. But one thing I'd like to know from the Guv candidates is how many chips they're ready to spend to reverse the 1990s initiative measure that commits every dime of gas tax and auto registration money to highway construction, or closely-related expenditures.

If that weren't the law, we… Continue

After the election

Last week voters in my town renewed Oregon's only tax on prepared meals and beverages, established 15 years ago to fund major sewage treatment upgrades and an open space program to establish neighborhood parks and trails. We fought over it back then and fought about it again this time.
On Tuesday we re-upped for the tax by a 59-41% margin. Does that end the…

How much does free speech mean if we're scared to use it?

There's a court battle going on in Washington State over whether your name should be public information if you sign a petition to put a measure on the ballot. The measure that brought this up would reverse a state law that expanded the rights of same-sex partners, and petitioners claimed that gay rights activists are so hostile that they might scare some people away from… Continue

Oh The Stories We Tell...

One aspect of Mindfulness has to do with the inner dialog that goes on inside our head. This inner dialog expresses itself in the stories we tell such as, “I just cannot get it together!” , or “This stuff just irritates me no end!”. There are hundreds of these little stories that we tell ourselves and others every day.

These negative or self limiting stories have a powerful impact upon our lives. Almost all of them are simply stories that our family or friends have passed on to us,… Continue

Evidence | Facts – Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet | NASA

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

Father-Son Duo Helped Create 51,000 New Beehive Colonies Across The Globe| Intelligent Living

The bee population is shrinking. But this duo is saving them. Stuart and Cedar Anderson spent a whole ten years trying to figure out how to harvest honey without disturbing bees. Their solution was an Indiegogo-funded invention called Flow Hive that replicates a real beehive without putting the bees at risk when you harvest honey. The Flow Hive allows the honey to flow out of the hive straight into a jar without crushing or disrupting the bees inside. What a brilliant design!
