Nation’s Largest Private Water Utility Joins Lawsuit Against Herbicide Maker from Huffington Post / via Common Dreams News Center (commondreams.org)
The nation's largest private water utility company has joined a federal lawsuit that aims to force the manufacturer of atrazine, a widely-used herbicide, to pay for its removal from drinking water. The class action lawsuit was originally filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois by 16 cities in Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, and Iowa. The communities are alleging that Swiss corporation Syngenta AG and its Delaware counterpart Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc. made billions of dollars selling atrazine while local taxpayers were left "the ever-growing bill for filtering the toxic product from the public's drinking water." American Water Company joined the lawsuit in five of those states on Thursday (March 25, 2010), representing 28 additional Midwestern communities.

Finding Balance in Your Life By Norma Gentile / Professional Singer, Sound Shaman and Intuitive Healer
Healing often happens best not by trying to influence an external person, event, or situation, but by looking internally to see why we want to change an external person, event, or situation. Identifying our own inner issue that is being brought up and ignited by the external world is the first step in healing it. When we heal something within ourselves, that same motion of healing resonates to the outer world. In this fashion our outer world changes because we have changed our inner world. But is everything within us really ours?

Enlightenment Through Dark Retreats interview with Reggie Ray by Tami Simon / AlternativesMagazine.com
"It’s a retreat that you do after you’ve been meditating a lot because you need a lot of stability, psychological and meditative stability, to do it. And you go into total darkness for periods of time—for a week, say. A month is a long time to be in total darkness. And somebody brings you your food, slips it in, and you have your meals. Other than that there’s nothing to do. There’s no practice. In the type of retreat that I did, all you do is you sit and look into the darkness, and you see what comes up. And what this does, in my experience, is that it removes much of the barrier between the unconscious and the conscious mind."

An Interview with William Cook Haigwood, Author, Photographer & Creator of The Counterculture Tarot by Cheryl Lynne Bradley / TarotCanada.org
"Some of us lived the Sixties as political activists, some as communards, some as feminists, some as lovers, some as priestesses, some as hermits, some as hanged men (and women), some as wands, some as swords, etc. …in this spirit it was not hard to use the Tarot’s honored imagery to create nodal points of coalescence for the events and experiences of the Counterculture. What was hard was to assemble the vast landscape of the Sixties and all that happened under the Tarot’s template in a way that would connect archetype with artifact, persona with player, actual events with Tarot qualities."

Wales, 'Appalachia of the UK,' Engineers a Brighter Post-Coal Future by Jonathan Hiskes / Grist.org
Wales was one of the first places to rise in the industrial revolution. Then it was one of the first to see its fossil fuel–based economy bottom out. Over the last decade, its government has invested heavily in clean-energy technologies, trying to cultivate a job base built on innovation rather than on mining and burning its natural resources. You can look at Wales as the Appalachia of the U.K. - rural, hilly, beautiful, and, for much of the past two centuries, economically dependent on digging up and selling a fossil fuel. The key difference is that Wales built up its mining industry sooner, and saw it collapse sooner. But laws of economics promise the real Appalachia is following the same path.

FEATURED BOOK Awake in Angelscape:
The Scenic Route to the Sacred Self
By Stacie Coller
The greatest journey you will ever take begins with a leap of faith...
Awake in Angelscape is a guided meditation book that uses a journey through an imaginary landscape to initiate a progression of 30 self-healing and wholeness activities. The book activities seek to provide the Reader with deeply moving experiences and inner tools that respect the way the brain responds to internally generated imagery. The work in the book uses a synergy of the Reader's imagination, clear intentions, and personal spiritual faith to weave a potent interactive journey to the Sacred Self.
The book's activities provide protocols to address the major processes of self-healing and wholeness work. These processes are: 1) flushing the system of accumulated energetic and emotional congestion, 2) fortifying the system to be resilient against harmful or negative influence, 3) rectifying negative perceptions and patterns, 4) restoring a sense of wholeness and harmony within the system 5) empowering the Self to identify, cultivate, and express the most sacred and evolved aspects of itself as an individual and as a member of larger systems, 6) embracing and having compassion for "being human", so that forward progress is viewed as a cumulative journey instead of a destination.
"This book gives a wonderful assortment of healing meditations and tools for those looking to find more than just physical healing. The exercises are thorough and the visualization techniques are exceptional. I have recommended this book to many folks. Even if you just did the cleansing exercise or inner child exercise, the book would have paid for itself. It has been one of the best investments I have ever made!" - L. L., Amazon Customer Review
