What would it take to have a wake up call of major proportion? Have we gone too far beyond the tipping point to respond and to contribute even if they were channeled from the highest sources directly?Read more
By Teena Clipston. Physicist Nassim Haramein doesn’t always follow along with mainstream scientific concepts. That is what makes him a great pioneer in his field, and one of the reasons it is a tremendous pleasure to speak with him—opening the realm of thought to new ideas and new discoveries is what moves this world forward.Read more
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.Read more

Another amazing monument can be found in Uxmal, known as the Pyramid of the Magician. It stands at 131 feet, and it is named after a magician god named Itzamna, who legend says single-handedly erected the pyramid in one night using his magic and might. The story I will tell is about my journey to this place. The adventure would serve as research for my novel and for the love of mystery.

As a four-year-old growing up on a farm, I had the opportunity to straddle – well, it was more like doing the splits – a beautiful chestnut draft horse used to work the land. I was also lucky enough to own a brown and white pinto saddle horse.

It is no coincidence when we walk in the woods, wander among the trees, scour the beach for treasures, or float gently in the sea we feel intimately, completely, and irrevocably better.

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.

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.
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.Read more

The world is a busy place. Family responsibilities, financial obligations, world affairs, and our internal need for balance can swirl about in a whirlwind of chaos, drawing us further from inner peace than we were ever intended to stray.
