The current issueThe Radical Practice of Loving Everyone
A four-legged approach to enlightenment

by Michael J. Chase

The following excerpt is taken from The Radical Practice of Loving Everyone: A four-legged approach to enlightenment by Michael J. Chase. It is published by Hay House (Released May 15, 2013) and available at all bookstores or online at: www.hayhouse.com.

“Wag More, Bark Less”

“Oh, come on, Mollie!” I said under my breath. Crunch. I had no idea what she’d found, but if there were such a thing as a crunch meter, on a scale of one to ten Mollie’s new treasure would have been a solid eight. Grabbing onto her snout, I then tried to reason with her. “Why . . . why do you do this?” Crunch. Crunch. With my other hand, I began the all-too-familiar process of digging through her mouth. Chips, I thought. They must be homemade potato chips. It only made sense after seeing the mound of potato peelings a few yards back. But as my fingers slid into her throat, I soon realized that Mollie had hit the jackpot. She’d found the most sought after of all garbage delicacies: chicken bones!

Ice Cream!
by Sandra Brandt

“It is said that ice cream is not food, it is medicine, capable of curing melancholy and lifting spirits, drowning sorrows and bringing smiles to the most defeated of little soccer players.” (sci-toys.com) My first memory of ice cream as a child was my aunt bringing a carton of it to my house as a treat. In those days, it was sold in the grocery store as a brick wrapped in cardboard paper packaging. Later, childhood memories also include fairly regular family car drives in summertime to the soft serve stand in our town, and in later years, of growing up, almost daily servings of ice cream (from a gallon pail) as a convenient suppertime dessert.

Raw and Vegan Retreat in the Yucatán
by Beate Epp

Have you ever thought of leaving everything behind, cutting cords, peeling off those layers, one by one, letting go, getting rid of stuff no longer needed, or actually never really needed? Well, I have done this step twice now! The first time was fourteen years ago when I not only left my home and my home land, but my whole continent when I left Germany to come first to the US, and then to Canada. Actually, I came to Saskatchewan and after a few months I met my wonderful husband, Paul.

How the ZenWand™ Came Into Being
by Dawn Reid-Reiner

The Zenwand has a true and beautiful story. Zenwand was gifted to me in a dream / visitation from my mother two years after her passing. Later, I realized she gave me the Zenwand on her birthday. Mum came to me in the middle of the night and placed the Zenwand in my hands. She told me the name, what it was, who would buy it, who would love it, how popular it would be, and the good it would bring for many. I can remember her visit very clearly: sound, colour, and the sense of calmness. This was in 2008 and, at that time, I was entirely unaware of my spirituality.

Yantha: Angelic Healing Energy
by Dave St. Pierre

Today, I am pleased to share with you a little about my journey, one that has transformed my life and helped me to heal. I am from Quebec, where I grew up, and I now live not far from Regina, Saskatchewan. My childhood and teenage years were a difficult period in my life. I grew up in a dysfunctional family and I was still very young when they abandoned me.

Entrepreneurs as Builders of Community and People
by Donald Sutherland

The Forks, in Winnipeg, is located where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet. For many centuries this small parcel of land was a trading area for First Nation peoples who plied the rivers and their tributaries in canoes. These entrepreneurs came here to trade, socialize, build community, dance, sing, and meet prospective husbands and wives. City planners have been very careful to preserve and honour the essential character and history of the Forks. This is home to many entrepreneurs. I recently interviewed Romalda who has been in the tea and coffee business at The Forks for eighteen years. In addition, I interviewed Rebecca, one of her newer employees, who brought to the conversation the perspectives of youth.

The Heart and Science of Mindfulness
by Dr. Anita Chakravarti and Jeanne Corrigal

Have you ever driven somewhere… and then not remembered how you actually got there? Or taken a morning shower yet been so engrossed in what you have to do that day, that you never felt the water caressing your skin? Many of us go through our days on autopilot and are never aware of this present moment. Take a moment now …feel the paper of the magazine in your hands, your feet on the ground, the light in the room. Pause, and just notice what is happening now.

Editorial
by Melva Armstrong

It has been a delightful two months since the last issue. The snow has gone and warmer temperatures prevail, so I have been enjoying the outdoors. After the long winter, cooped up inside, it feels freeing to spread my wings and relish the breezes that gently caress my cheeks, as I occasionally lay back in a chair, soaking up the sunshine. There is always lots to do in the yard, which is yet another form of outdoor enjoyment. I love standing quietly and listening to the magical blending of the various bird songs, the chirping squirrels, and the thumping sound of the ruffed grouse’s mating ritual.
