Holiday Season Survival Kit
by Louise LeBrun / Author, Speaker, Educator and Founder of the WEL-Systems Institute
As much as the Holiday Season brings joy and great delight to many of us, others among us fall victim to the increasing pressures of spending money we donít have, spending time with people we donít want to be with, and eating and drinking much more than our body welcomes or can tolerate. We have become mindless - and sometimes reckless - in spending personal and financial effort and resources on rituals that have become meaningless for us. Yet, like hamsters on a wheel, we just donít know how to get off!

Turning Toward What You Want
By John Dennison / PeaceOptions.com
Transparency is probably a good thing, since it allows light to shine into dark places to bring needed change. But it sure makes living in these times a challenge. For that light reveals aspects of our systems, institutions, practices, beliefs, attitudes, and human interactions that don't serve us very well. In fact, much of what we see is triggering anger, resentment, and judgment, even though we probably knew much of what is now getting us so riled up about was happening all along. It's just now our noses are being rubbed in it, triggering responses from the release of pent-up energies that we have long suppressed. It's easy to get caught up in those emotions that we get dragged into conflict with the status quo. To some extent, those conflicts are necessary to break its hold upon us. But once we realize those old ways aren't doing us any favors, it's important to start putting more energy into what we want rather than just fighting against that which we don't.

Now Remember Rosemary

by Susun S. Weed / Herbalist, Author, Founder of the Wise Woman Center and Ash Tree Publishing
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is an especially aromatic member of the mint family. When grown in dry, poor soils in hot areas, a little protected, but touched by the winds, rosemary rewards us with minerals, vitamins, and antiseptic, antibacterial volatile oils which extract easily into water, vinegar, alcohol, and fat. While evergreen, and thus usable at any time of the year, rosemary is considered most medicinal when flowering. A large pinch of dried rosemary in food acts as a preservative. A strong brew of the fresh or dried leaves makes a particularly effective wound wash. Rosemary is a traditional Christmas decoration - partly because it smells good, and partly because pruning rosemary back mid-winter makes it stronger and healthier.
