Dreams: Excerpts from “Healing Dreams” by Marc Ian Barasch

Dreams: Excerpts from “Healing Dreams” by Marc Ian Barasch

Jul 02

“In our era, the past is vanishing like smoke. The ancestors and gods and spirits who speak through dreams were once welcomed into the circle of community; were among its essential members. But who now will listen to them? The cultures that honored them are dying, their very languages becoming extinct. The thread of received wisdom that has sustained us is stretched thin to breaking. Shorn of memory, we no longer recognize as part of life’s fabric those who have come before us. The voices of the myriad beings, visible and invisible, who surround us grow faint, though they are still talking in our sleep.
…Our dreams are a continuum, revealing, if we care to look, that we do not exist alone, but in a skein of relationship with all that has been, all that is, and all that shall be.” — Marc Ian Barasch

May 22

Midwifery may well be the oldest healing profession known to humans. The word “midwife,” derived from old English, means “with woman.” In French the word for midwife, sage femme, means “wise woman.” The Danish word for midwife, jordmoder, means “earth mother” and the Icelandic word, ljosmodir, means “mother of light.” In most cultures midwives have enjoyed a place of honor, respected for their remarkable skills, wisdom and prowess as healers. Yet in the United States midwives are as endangered as the spotted owl or the gray wolf. And like these animals, midwives face significant threats to their way of life. The United States is one of the few countries in the modern world to have ever outlawed midwives. In 1923 there were about 60,000 midwives practicing in the United States. By the 1960s traditional midwives were all but extinct. Slowly midwives have been making a comeback, but it has not been easy. Today there are roughly 8000-10,000 practicing midwives…

Robert Kennedy, Jr. – Vaccines Revealed

Jan 30

Whether you are pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine, or somewhere in the middle, everyone should watch this interview with Robert Kennedy, Jr. It appears in Part 3 of the new 9-part documentary “Vaccines Revealed.” Kennedy, who vaccinated all six of his children, describes what he discovered about vaccinations after being dragged into the controversy.

Reconsider Columbus Day

Reconsider Columbus Day

Oct 10

For many in the United States, Columbus Day is just another holiday. It is a time to spend with family and friends, an opportunity to take a short vacation, an extra day of rest from a long work week, or it is the last chance for a barbecue before winter. But for others, it is a sharp and painful reminder that history has betrayed and forgotten the contributions of their people, the lives lost, and a rich culture that pre-dated colonization.

From the moment a sailor aboard the Pinta sighted land from the sea, on October 12, 1492, the course of indigenous history was forever changed. Upon landing on what is now the Bahamas, once known as Guanahani, Columbus encountered indigenous peoples of the Lucayan, Taíno or Arawak, nations. Peaceful and friendly, Columbus and his Spanish explorers manipulated their hospitality and mercilessly slaughtered, enslaved, and stole lands in the name of the Spanish crown. He wrote of them in his journal, “They ought to make good and skilled servants, for they repeat very quickly whatever we say to them”…

Must Watch Documentary: ‘Cowspiracy’

Must Watch Documentary: ‘Cowspiracy’

Sep 15

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today — and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged…

Mass Murders & Psychiatric Medications (Updated)

Mass Murders & Psychiatric Medications (Updated)

Aug 30

David Kupelian writes: “Since last month’s horrifying and heartbreaking school massacre in Newtown, Conn., politicians and the press have, as everyone knows, been totally obsessed with firearms… But where, I’d like to ask my colleagues in the media, is the reporting about the psychiatric medications the perpetrator — who had been under treatment for mental-health problems — may have been taking? Perhaps you’re wondering why this issue of psychiatric medications should be so important. As I documented in “How Evil Works,” it is simply indisputable that most perpetrators of school shootings and similar mass murders in our modern era were either on — or just recently coming off of — psychiatric medications…”

To Thine Own Self Be True — Or Else…

To Thine Own Self Be True — Or Else…

May 25

The advice, whether from Shakespeare or a modern self-help guru, is common: Be true to yourself. New research suggests that this drive for authenticity — living in accordance with our sense of self, emotions, and values — may be so fundamental that we actually feel immoral and impure when we violate our true sense of self. This sense of impurity, in turn, may lead us to engage in cleansing or charitable behaviors as a way of clearing our conscience…

EXCERPT: “Investment in renewable energy sources like wind and solar is skyrocketing as their costs plummet… Experts predicted in 2000 that wind generated power worldwide would reach 30 gigawatts; by 2010, it was 200 gigawatts, and by last year it reached nearly 370, or more than 12 times higher. Installations of solar power would add one new gigawatt per year by 2010, predictions in 2002 stated. It turned out to be 17 times that by 2010 and 48 times that amount last year…”

Stanislav Petrov: The Other Russian ‘Who Saved The World’

Feb 04

On September 26, 1983, Petrov was the commander on duty in an early warning center, responsible for alerting Soviet leaders in the event of a U.S. attack. Shortly after midnight that night, the system warned that a Soviet satellite had detected the launch of U.S. missiles. First one, then two, and finally a total of five land-based missiles appeared to have been launched at the Soviet Union. Colonel Petrov had only minutes to decide whether the alarms going off in the middle of the night indicated the real thing — the beginning of World War III — or a false alarm…

Vasili Arkhipov: ‘The Man Who Saved The World’ (Updated)

Vasili Arkhipov: ‘The Man Who Saved The World’ (Updated)

Feb 04

In October 1962, the world held its breath. On the edge of the Caribbean Sea, just a few miles from the Florida coast, the two great superpowers were at a stand-off. Surrounded by twelve US destroyers, which were depth-charging his submarine to drive it to the surface, Captain Vitali Grigorievitch Savitsky panicked. Unable to contact Moscow and fearing war had begun, he ordered the launch of his submarine’s nuclear torpedoes. As the two sides inched perilously close to nuclear war — far closer than we ever knew before — just one man stood between Captain Savitsky’s order and mutually assured destruction. Set over four hours on October 27, 1962, the tensest moments of the Cuban Missile Crisis, this program tells the powerful but forgotten story of Vasili Arkhipov and Soviet submarine B-59. With most of the action set in a claustrophobic submarine running out of air, “The Man Who Saved the World” combines tense drama with eyewitness accounts and expert testimony about some of the most critical events in the Cold War…
