A transition is underway in the deep mythology that underpins our civilization. Many of us are in a personal transition as well, initiated by a personal or social crisis that launches us into a “space between the stories.”

In this space...

An Interview With Sharon Landrith
Omega: More people seem to be "waking up" spiritually than ever before, yet there also seems to be more injustice in the world. How can those who are waking up be effective game changers and not be overwhelmed by fear, anger, or sadness? More
I’m sure you know the incredible release that happens when you are nearing a vacation you’ve been planning, especially if it’s one you’ve been thinking of for a long time. For those of us in the daily grind of a traditional work/life relationship, this may be a vacation we’ve planned for and worked an entire year or even years toward. Maybe you relish the moments that lead up to that one- or two-week paradise, perhaps even adopting an “I don’t care so much” attitude to normal stressors as you get closer to the moment in which you know you will leave it all behind.

Creating the Bengston Energy Healing Method
A long time ago, soon after I graduated with a bachelor's degree in sociology from Niagara University, I met a man who claimed he had recently discovered his psychic abilities. At the time, in 1971, Bennett Mayrick was a house cleaner. He had held a variety of jobs before I met him, including floor installer, professional singer, etc. Basically, he was a jack-of-all-trades. Since I don’t naturally default to belief, I asked him if I could test his claim. He not only agreed but welcomed the opportunity as he proclaimed himself a skeptic. And so a partnership was born.

The ancient Greek word for wound is trauma. Simply defined, trauma is a deeply disturbing experience that can create extreme stress and overwhelm the body and the mind.  About 70 percent of U.S. adults have experienced a traumatic event at least once in their lives and up to 20 percent of these people can also develop post-traumatic stress, according to the nonprofit organization Sidran Traumatic Stress Institute.

Small Adjustments to “Better Our Best”
Micro-resilience isn’t about weakness. On the contrary, small adjustments help us “better our best” and perform closer to our world-class capability. Repeatedly working to the point of collapse isn’t going to be good enough to get the job done at the level we need. Our bleary eyes and foggy brain eventually bring us to the point of diminishing returns. We begin to introduce errors and inconsistencies that require even more effort to repair. Conversely, strategic recoveries along the way allow us to achieve a new and higher level of the all-in commitment we value so highly. More
Here's the month-by-month breakdown with Eric Francis. Aries (March 20-April 19) More
There's a question going around: How do we convey the social unrest in our nascent era of protest into a sustained movement? There are a lot of problems in the country and in the world that need addressing—and it would seem the powers-that-be are not so interested. It's up to us. I want to take this up as a spiritual question—that is, as a question of the inner life. More

An Interview With Joan White
Omega: Having studied extensively with both B.K.S. Iyengar and his daughter Geeta Iyengar, what have you observed about the role of women in yoga? Joan: One of Mr. Iyengar’s legacies—we call him Guruji—is that he was the first one that taught men and women in the same class. It had been forbidden, but he broke through a lot of Indian taboos in his introduction of yoga to the West, and now everybody can do yoga if they want to. More
