Greetings from the Editor:

Spring Is In the Air

The joy of springtime, inspired by the brilliant rainbow colors of wildflowers, new leaves sprouting on the trees, and the fields of grass turning from brown to green, reminds us of new growth ready to sprout within us. No matter how long you have been on the self-discovery journey, there is always more to learn about yourself and new ways to grow. As you observe all the new growth in the world around you, think about some experiences that will add new growth to your life. Choose one today and picture yourself taking small steps to begin bringing this new growth into bloom in your life.




Transforming Victimization: True Stories #3

By Sheri Spirt                          

As a psychiatrist, I have been a witness to the gamut of difficult life circumstances, but none can compare with the pain of loss, particularly the loss of a loved one. What I find, however, to be most important in healing, is how an individual actually handles the grief process. It often concerns me when a patient does not wish to talk about the deceased, but rather almost pretend they are still alive.

Integral Spiritual Intelligence: 21 Skills in 4 quadrants

By Cindy Wigglesworth

Why do we need to understand Spiritual Intelligence? The world’s religions generally advocate loving behaviors, yet religious beliefs have often divided our planet and caused war.

Building Self-Esteem in Youth

by Suzanne E. Harrill                    

Ask any second grade class of students, "Do you love yourself?" and most children will raise and wave their hands and say "Yesss!" By high school that number has taken a considerable dive. Developmentally the adolescent’s job is to separate from the family, become an independent individual capable of making choices and being able to take care of her/himself. This is difficult to do when one is emotionally hurting and has self-esteem issues. What can we as adults do to make a difference in helping teens accept themselves, think about their values, make healthy life-style choices, develop integrity and a conscience, and be responsible. First, let us define self-esteem and look at characteristics of high and low self esteem. Then we will discuss ways to positively help our youth...
