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

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.

The Scenic Route to the Sacred Self
By Stacie Coller
The greatest journey you will ever take begins with a leap of
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!" -
