Sacred Medicine – The Path To Unity

Sacred Medicine – The Path To Unity

The resilience of the shamanic traditions is a testament to their validity, usefulness and power. Many cultures which were much more recent such as the ancient Greek culture have vanished in spite of their wide-spread influence. The lesson we learn from the survival of the ancient shamanic tradition is that there is something fundamentally human about the urge to connect with the Earth, the elements and cosmic consciousness. The need for this spiritual connection is surging from the very depths of our psyche. Just as our bodies have needs and impulses, so does the soul.

Why Americans Need to Defend Julian Assange’s Freedom

Why Americans Need to Defend Julian Assange’s Freedom

Prosecution of Julian Assange is a persecution of American ideals. Criminalizing the act of publishing through the Espionage Act destroys the First Amendment as the guardian of democracy. This not only sets a dangerous precedent for press freedom, but it could allow the beginning of a new totalitarianism. We must break our silence and refuse to participate in the destruction of values that founded this country. It is time for us all to put aside ideological differences and unite in solidarity with people around the world who are engaging in non-violent resistance against this assault on WikiLeaks and our right to free speech.

As Trump Administration Misses Family Reunification Deadline, Children Protest ‘Horrific’ Immigration Policy

Children led a protest on Capitol Hill on Thursday as the Trump administration missed the deadline to reunite all of the families it has forcibly separated. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) accused the administration of extreme negligence in how it carried out the “horrific, dark act of injuring children in order to take a political position… The administration was incompetent on top of it, or callous, and did not track the connection between the parents and the children, and so it’s having an enormously difficult time reuniting the families.”

The Future of “American” Is Up To Us

The Future of “American” Is Up To Us

George Goehl: We hear people say that what is happening to migrants in the United States right now is un-American. I wish that were true. Sadly, American history is full of periods where children of color were routinely taken from their parents. Resistance and organizing, on the other hand, are truly American. In fact, many of our nation’s best moments have been when we heeded the call to stand down hatred and racism.

How YOU Can Undermine The ‘Evil Cabal’

How YOU Can Undermine The ‘Evil Cabal’

Here are some ways that YOU can undermine the Evil Cabal: Firstly, understand that systems of political and economic control are heavily dependent on the acquiescence, cooperation, and participation of many millions of people. Furthermore, you must recognize that taking it upon yourself to assemble and collate every possible fact and insight into every conspiracy and every nasty event is self-destructive. That is, by becoming a library of terrible truths, you are willfully imposing upon yourself a subtle but powerful form of mental slavery.

Great News: In Praise of Afghans Walking for Peace

This past Friday in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province, Hazara girls joined young Pashto boys to sing Afghanistan’s national anthem as a welcome to Pashto men walking 400 miles from Helmand to Kabul. The walkers are calling on warring parties in Afghanistan to end the war. Most of the men making the journey are wearing sandals. At rest stops, they must tend to their torn and blistered feet. But their mission grows stronger as they walk.
