Birds of Paradise
Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth
Deep in the isolated wilderness of New Guinea lives extraordinary beauty as you have never seen it before. It pours from within the existence of 39 species of birds found nowhere else on earth. For over a decade, Ed Scholes, a Cornell Lab scientist, and Tim Laman, a National Geographic photojournalist, took on the Birds-of-Paradise project – an incredible journey to capture the majestic splendour of these birds. Mother Nature is full of abundance and boundless wonders. When we are in tune with nature, it connects us back with those universal creative powers and healing energy. Let the birds of paradise dance, parade, and serenade you with their extraordinary ornaments and plumes.
Native American leader, Tiokasin Ghosthorse, says, "Humanity must shift from living on the Earth to living with her." If we accept that the Earth is a living being, can we also accept that it is in our capacity to destroy it? In "Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth", scientists and spiritual leaders of diverse faiths come together to show us how we can transform our relationship with this sacred Earth so that we are living in harmony. The collection of essays in this book offer a response to the values and socio-political structures of recent centuries with their trajectory away from intimacy with the Earth and its sacred essence. This trailer gives an eye opening glimpse into the reflections and wisdom offered by these inspiring leaders.

Two specific points on the temporal chart – the Neolithic or Agricultural Revolution and the Industrial Revolution mark our wayward departure.

Reading, Writing, Empathy: The Rise of Social Emotional Learning
Marc Brackett never liked school. “I was always bored,” he says, “ and I never felt like any of my teachers really cared. I can’t think of anybody that made me feel inspired.” It’s a surprising complaint coming from a 42-year-old Yale research scientist with a 27-page CV and nearly $4 million in career funding. But Brackett knows that many kids feel the way he does about school, and he wants to do a complete emotional makeover of the nation’s schools.
The Cannabis Cure For Cancer
This quick overview of the science backs up the assertion that every cancer patient and every oncologist should put medical marijuana on their treatment maps.

Ten signs you believe it is WRONG to be happy

We all want to live happy, fulfilled lives. Sometimes, however, it seems like we've become experts at avoiding happiness. If you are missing out on happiness, you may have subconscious beliefs that make it impossible to experience happiness. In fact, at some level you may simply believe happiness is wrong, or not for you. This belief leads to emotional deprivation. Emotional deprivation can become a psychological attachment, a pattern so familiar that it literally becomes a self-sabotaging a way of life. So how can you tell if this is the case?
