From the Editor

Putting together this edition has been very inspiring. The many articles submitted were from writers of various backgrounds. It was interesting to notice that their views were so similar as to how one creates peace. They were quite consistent in their personal and global approach, meaning that they understood that creating peace in the world starts with them in their individual lives at home, at work, at school and at play.

I have come to realize this more and more in my own life. There is no point and it is hypocritical to rant at the watercooler about events around the world depicting acts of violence; when I am not creating peace in my own life first. Especially considering the fact that we do a magazine about holistic health – body, mind and spirit – we’d better be practicing what we preach!

When Dirk found the photo for the front cover, we knew it was THE image… it captured the theme, pulled at our heart strings and it immediately brought to mind the tune and lyrics of John Lennon’s song…

"Imagine all the people, living life in peace…

You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you will join us and the world will live as one.”

Happy Solstice.
