In Nature We are All Interconnected

While eating smoked salmon sushi in a tiny Japanese restaurant off Times Square in Manhattan before the matinee performance of Aladdin, my five- year-old daughter Esther asked the question: “Do we separate the soul from the body BEFORE we kill the fish or the animal so it’s just the body?” After a brief pause she went on to say, “we kiss the fish and hug the fish or the animal and then we kill it? Why we kill the fish?”

Publisher’s letter from First Issue of All One Era Magazine

This time is perhaps the highest calling in the history of humanity. I would feel so blessed to be able to portray this prophecy of all prophecies in ways that we all “get it” easily and can joyfully catapult it. I now surrender my ego self and take deep breaths and allow Spirit to flow through me… to be a conduit allowing ever-present universal consciousness to surround me and Guide me.

The Quantum Buddha

By Jessica Kirby. Scientific inquiry and spiritual tradition are often approached as opposing or repelling forces—ideas, concepts, and explanations in conflict with one another and divisive in nature. However, if we look to mystic and many Eastern traditions, Buddhist and scientific concepts regarding the nature of reality seem to align. These concepts have been alive in Eastern thought and theory for thousands of years, but Buddhism seems to capture them most completely, while quantum physics has confirmed their truth in more recent times.

Nurturing through Nature: Eco-therapy for Children

by Melissa MacDougall
The year is 1985. It’s summer and I am seven years old. Like ancient seafarers, I tell time by the position of the sun and once it begins to fall behind the forested mountains, once the blue sky erupts into glorious shades of pink and purple, I know my adventure is over—until I rise the following morning, that is. Today, though, my best friend since preschool is expecting me. She promised to pack milk and peanut butter sandwiches while I snagged a handful of change from my piggybank for ice cream at the corner store.

Words and Water

by Teena Clipston
My significant other (at the time) and I bought a custom wooden 35’ pilothouse sloop out of Stones Marina in Nanaimo back in 2010. The boat had already had its life adventure out at sea and since we had absolutely no experience, we thought it could teach us a thing or two. The boat had already been off shore and to Mexico several times. She was old, but still, we thought, had some life left in her.

Return to Nature: An Interview with Richard Louv

A silent epidemic among North American children is reaching monumental proportions. Over the past two decades, children have increasingly spent less time outdoors, less time in free, unstructured play, and less of their discretionary time at home. Organized youth sports are taking over from street play, and virtual environments are slowly replacing natural environments as preferable places to play and interact among children of all ages. And when they have the choice, kids are spending less time at home in their yards with family and friends than at organized events or indoor entertainment options.
