February Publisher's Letter

February Publisher's Letter

“For the first time in human evolution, the individual life is long enough, and the cultural transformation swift enough, that the individual mind is now a constituent player in the global transformation of human culture.”

~ William Irwin Thompson


We live long lives in a fast-paced world; the ability to gracefully navigate transitions of life and the daily stressors that come with being human has become a very necessary skill. Whether change comes swiftly or creeps up, it always comes, and a growing body of research indicates that the ability to cope with change and stress may be critical to having a successful, happy life. Unfortunately, stress management and tools for building resilience to better be able to deal with change are not emphasized in our standard educational institutions. Most of us are left to figure it out as best we can.

With this in mind, we devoted our February issue to exploring techniques and tools of natural stress relief and ideas for living a resilient, fulfilling life. We include an article from author and national thought leader Brian Luke Seaward, who will lead a workshop on this topic in this area in April.

Change surrounds us; sometimes it is light, joyous and welcome, while at other times it is cold, abrupt and shocking. We can be swept away or we can ride the waves of change; sometimes circumstances demand we take a turn doing both. Whatever we are faced with, we have choices and, with support, we may be able to transcend even the most difficult situation to find the learning and gift within. The caterpillar feels pain as it transforms into a butterfly…but change it does. We are no different.

Whether a change of circumstance is expected or unexpected, there is rich opportunity within the chaos for personal growth if you have the courage to be your authentic self and make choices that hold meaning for you. We hope the articles in this issue provide inspiration and support, no matter what you’ve been going through or may be facing.

With love and light,

Nicole
