Pleasure Consciousness and Rewiring Your Body/Brain

For someone who experienced regular physical and emotional trauma as a young person, rewiring my body and brain toward joyful wellbeing is crucial for my happiness. A tradition of exhilaration is good for the mind, body, and soul. Why not take a few minutes to deliberately feel good everyday - and see what power a healing habit can have in your own life?

Passionate Empathy, Feminine Energy, and Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende: I think that the time is ripe to make fundamental changes in our civilization. But for real change, we need feminine energy in the management of the world. We need a critical number of women in positions of power, and we need to nurture the feminine energy in men. I'm talking about men with young minds, of course. Old guys are hopeless; we have to wait for them to die off. (Laughter) Yes, I would love to have Sophia Loren's long legs and legendary breasts. But given a choice, I would rather have the warrior hearts of Wangari Maathai, Somaly Mam, Jenny and Rose Mapendo. I want to make this world good. Not better, but to make it good. Why not? It is possible. Look around in this room -- all this knowledge, energy, talent and technology. Let's get off our fannies, roll up our sleeves and get to work, passionately, in creating an almost perfect world. Thank you.
