Where is the center of gravity, as per Ayurveda?

A student, who as a physiotherapist had learned that each human has one centre of gravity, asked me where that center of gravity was.

Not Conspiracy, Just A Classical Daddy Issue

If you see the Corona fraud as a conspiracy or business as usual, is semantics. From both perspectives those committing "the fraud" think they are in their right to do so.

Mental Health – the best treatment

Poor Kavanaugh, He Was Bullied to Do It

If the #MeToo movement changed the world in any way it was that it created listeners. It was finally time to listen. The abused who finally spoke up may have told someone previously, or tried to, but probably hadn't gotten enough support to make a difference, or change anything. Out of 700 rapes one year … Continue reading Poor Kavanaugh, He Was Bullied to Do It

Unburdening the Macho

We added a new introduction to the original blog you'll find below, in order to make more sense if you got here from our latest newsletter. We chose the wrong role model in building the world. The "king of beasts", lions, was a bad idea. So the colorful, charismatic, wealthy, high earning, loudest, biggest, fastest, … Continue reading Unburdening the Macho

A Culture of Predators

In my first of a series of 3 blogs - I explored the fact that we eat animals even if it’s immensely clear scientifically that it’s killing us and nature, leaving the Earth to a destiny of a dusty over-heated desert, a scenario well depicted in the movie Interstellar. Thankfully few doubt our human contribution … Continue reading A Culture of Predators
