The Contributions of Feminist Therapy
My work has been significantly influenced by a number of feminist therapists including (but not limited to) Toni Ann Laidlaw, Cheryl Malmo, Joan Turner, Jan Ellis, Diane Lepine, Harriett Goldhor Lerner, Joan Hamerman, Jean Baker Miller, and Miriam Greenspan. I've found that what seems to be the universal core of feminist therapy is that clients and therapists are perceived as equal participants and companions in the therapy endeavor.

Your 15-degree 'Lifetime Keys' Personal Directions... Known by Only 5% of Feng Shui Consultants!
There are 4 levels to a Classical Feng Shui diagnosis and only 5% of consultants know how to determine all of your 15° birthday derived directions. Most consultants focus on the Form School Feng Shui aspects that are visible, because those aspects are easily depicted in popular books. Some consultants are qualified to accurately determine your 'Yi Jing' Trigram general 45° birthday / gender derived directions, although many are unaware that you need to sit with your back toward your supportive direction. Even fewer consultants have the training and experience necessary to calculate the 'Xuan Kong' unseen energy patterns and prescribe the necessary elemental remedies for the inherent energies you're exposed to daily. The fourth level of analysis requires years of dedicated study to gain the knowledge from an authentic Feng Shui Master, because this information is NOT available in any English language book.

Aloe Vera: Myth or medicine?
Aloe Vera is a medicinal herb that has been used by mankind for thousands of years. It has acquired the nicknames ‘nature’s gift’ ‘the miracle plant’, ‘the potted physician’ and many more. The first documented use of Aloe Vera by humans dates back to an Egyptian papyrus from 3500 BC. It was used to great effect by Greek and Roman physicians and researchers have found that both the ancient Chinese and Indians also used Aloe Vera. Egyptian Queens associated its use with their physical beauty and legend has it that Alexander the Great conquered the island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean to secure supplies of Aloes to treat the battle wounds of his soldiers. Even Mahatma Ghandi used it to maintain his strength during times of fasting. Recently, there has been a tendency for society to move towards synthetic and processed products for health and beauty. Although modern medicines and drugs are undoubtedly effective in treating ailments, long term use can result in undesirable side effects. As a consequence more consumers and scientists are returning to traditional, natural therapies that have been neglected for so long. As a result Aloe Vera is once again attracting attention, but is this attention justified? This article will examine that question.

The Vernal Equinox and New Beginnings
After experiencing the frigid temperatures and snow here on the east coast, I’m looking forward to the arrival of Spring. As the days grow longer, the Vernal Equinox on March 20th marks the first day of Spring. We also refer to this time as the Spring Equinox. In days of olde, the Spring Equinox marked a place in time when seeds would literally be planted and then food would be harvested at the Autumn Equinox on or about September 23rd. Figuratively speaking, we see the arrival of Spring as a fertile time for new beginnings.
