Astrology / Horoscope for April 2014

Susan Heinz Santa Cruz Astrology / Horoscope / ZodiacAstrological Insights by Susan Heinz

Astrology for April 2014

The dawn stretches out rosy on the Eastern ridge. Venus, a bright lantern, calls us to wakefulness. And wakefulness we need to successfully navigate the tensions of this month. April becomes the ground for positive or destructive forward movement. In the early evening, to the West, Orion stretches himself out on horizon and looks up to the heavens. Sirius, the Dog Star, jewels the sky; a diamond flashing multiple colors while the Dog constellation sits up, attending to the intensity of activity the year of the Horse leaves in the wake of its speed.

Wujifa, Standing Meditation and the Essence of Internal Martial Arts

Internal Martial ArtsWujifa, Standing Meditation and the Essence of Internal Martial Arts

by Trevor Caruso is a Rolf Structural Integration Therapist 

In Wujifa, there is a saying: the method is not the truth, once you get the feeling, get rid of the method. Method can be a great tool, but we can often get caught up in form and method and find it difficult to let go. In the martial arts we tend to be bombarded by forms with little explanation or room for discovery of the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of what we’re doing. There’s little room for feeling and discovering when we’re continually occupied with choreographing our bodies to a certain ‘form’. So what is it that makes an internal style, internal?

Addicted to Drugs or Alcohol?

Local Holistic Drug Treatment Facility is Paving the Way for New Hope

For many struggling with addiction, the idea of going to rehab conjures images of locking oneself away in a sterile environment and sitting in a room full of random strangers discussing how to manage their “disease” for 30 days. This will usually be accompanied with a diagnosis of mental illness along with a prescription. While this is considered conventional treatment, it is not the only option.

This is Not a 12-Step Program

21-Day Cleanse, Reboot and Thrive

Misa Lawson21-Day Cleanse, Reboot and Thrive

by Misa Lawson, MPH, RD, Emotional Brain Training

Nature has an innate wisdom of seasons and cycles, and so does human physiology. Just like fruit burgeons in the spring, grows plump in the summer only to become deciduous and decay in the autumn, and dormant in the winter, our physiology cycles in circadian and cellular rhythms.

From Mechanic to Millionaire

Dave MacArthurFrom Mechanic to Millionaire

Adapted from an article in Prosper Magazine by Britney Shiflet

 Dave MacArthur saw two paths—fix his “slump” of a life as a mechanic or end it all. One day in 2005, things got off to a rough start for Dave MacArthur. He ran a 4:30 a.m. paper route, hit the gym with his wife, and dragged himself to the mechanic shop where he stayed until 10 p.m. Dave’s exhausting routine and the pressure of providing for a large family had him physically and emotionally drained. Dave says he clearly remembers that day when he saw two paths, “I wanted a solution or I wanted to die.”
