Attend any social gathering and you will likely find people who are in some form of therapy, whether for anxiety, troubled relationships, childhood abuse or feeling miserable.  The good news is that our bodies are way smarter than we thought they were. Our brains are hard wired with a brilliant...

Monday is of course Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A well deserved day honoring a man who with his voice, his hopes, and his vision of what the world could be like changed life forever.

                What is it about parents?  I know when my mother was my age she probably vowed that someday she would let her kids have some freedom and learn from their own mistakes.  She’s not living up to it.  I am 21 years old and am still not allowed to go out with my friends on a Friday night...

Years ago, when my ideal situation fell apart, I had a nervous break down.  My 'nervous system'  literally broke down.  My entire body ceased to function properly, and all I could move were my eyes and mouth.  It scared me.  It was the time that I turned my life around,...

I don't know which psalms to sing or which church to go to feel the flame within for a while     sit or lie still with  faith weather the restlessness brewing breath by breath       I don't know the god  or goddess or the mantra to chant when fear overtakes my being and...

From the moment we're born, each of us is thrust into a conflict that's existed for the entirety of human civilization. Depending on our circumstance, the place where we grew up, our social status, our race, gender, sexual orientation, or spiritual inclination, each of us have, or inevitably will,...

The cry for freedom in Eastern Europe began in 1956, in Hungary when Hungarians decided to revolt the Stalinist  government of the People's Republic of Hungary and its Soviet-imposed policies, lasting from 23 October until 10 November 1956. The revolt began, while a student demonstration attracted...
