Shamanism was an integral part of humanity for thousands of years. They were the first healers, teachers, and scholars. Eventually, the wisdom of the shamans was lost through the trials and travails of humanity. Now, in our modern age with technology that grants us access to knowledge from around the world, we have brought the old wisdom back, and in the most stunning of ways. Science has actually come to parallel the ancient practices of shamanism. Here is a list of 5 ways the sub-atomic level of reality parallels with the core methods of shamanic healing.

On this blog, we constantly invite teenagers to write about their opinions, but it’s only during our annual Editorial Cartoon Contest that we ask them to illustrate those ideas.
With this, our second annual Editorial Cartoon contest, we are inviting students to channel their thoughts into images, with inspiration from Times cartoonists like Patrick Chappatte and Brian McFadden, and from last year’s many winners.

Changes in Neural Connectivity and Memory Following a Yoga Intervention for Older Adults: A Pilot Study
Abstract: Background: No study has explored the effect of yoga on cognitive decline and resting-state functional connectivity. Objectives: This study explored the relationship between performance on memory tests and resting-state functional connectivity before and after a yoga intervention versus active control for subjects with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Methods: Participants (≥ 55 y) with MCI were randomized to receive a yoga intervention or active “gold-standard” control (i.e., memory enhancement training (MET)) for 12 weeks. Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to map correlations between brain networks and memory performance changes over time. Default mode networks (DMN), language and superior parietal networks were chosen as networks of interest to analyze the association with changes in verbal and visuospatial memory performance. Results: Fourteen yoga and 11 MET participants completed the study. The yoga group demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in depression and visuospatial memory. We observed improved verbal memory performance correlated with increased connectivity between the DMN and frontal medial cortex, pregenual anterior cingulate cortex, right middle frontal cortex, posterior cingulate cortex, and left lateral occipital cortex. Improved verbal memory performance positively correlated with increased connectivity between the language processing network and the left inferior frontal gyrus. Improved visuospatial memory performance correlated inversely with connectivity between the superior parietal network and the medial parietal cortex. Conclusion: Yoga may be as effective as MET in improving functional connectivity in relation to verbal memory performance. These findings should be confirmed in larger prospective studies.
Research shows that the practice goes a long way toward helping your brain stay in top shape and staying young.

Cameron Mooney, shared this beautiful video he made to document his wife’s pregnancy. Over the course of 54 seconds, Mooney captures the entirety of his wife’s pregnancy, from flat belly to babe-in-arms. Press “play” to watch this mom’s belly grow right before your eyes. Congratulations to the Mooneys for their new and adorable addition!

Every year, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation honors people throughout the country with a fellowship grant of $625,000, awarded over five years. The so-called "Genius Grant" was given to 23 people this year, who were honored for their originality, insight and potential.

Among those esteemed recipients was Anne Basting, a professor of theater at UW-Milwaukee. She is being honored for her work with aging people, particularly those with dementia and other cognitive impairments.
Basting founded an organization called TimeSlips, which uses storytelling techniques to engage people with cognitive loss by using their imagination.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is incomplete as we commonly know it. Later in his life, Maslow wrote about a stage beyond self-actualization. Nichol Brandford explains how to arrive at this final place.

“2016 has been more than a year of change. It has been a year of growth and ascension. More awakenings are happening and it could be that what you experience as a challenge or a problem, is really just part of the process of change. Just like the seasons change, we too must all ourselves to vibe with the tune of nature. If you are feeling stuck or confused with yourself, do not look without, instead look within. Move out of your head and into your heart. Move away from thought and into feeling. If issues have presented themselves, if you are feeling stuck this is a positive sign! A sign that you are getting ready to make a big leap forward. Don’t worry about tomorrow, just focus on today. Just focus on what you can do right now to bring yourself peace. Making a decision from a place of anxiety or stress, is not going to be productive. So give yourself some space, love yourself, be gentle with yourself and ask yourself- what is the one most supportive thing I can do for me right now? Then go and do it. The tides of the Universe are going to take you where they may, so embrace the energy and join the flow, don’t fight it. The best way to use the current energy of the cosmos is to accept it and don’t put pressure on yourself to do anything with it. Just be at peace with yourself. Is this take a passive stance? Yes. But that is what is perhaps called on all of us right now. Be passive until you feel so good about yourself that the next step just magically appears.”
September 2016 has been a big month for many. The month started with a New Moon and will end with a New Moon, signifying a time of stripping away for the new to emerge. At the beginning and middle of the month, there were two big eclipses, which were helping to highlight different areas of …

Maggie Nelson has been named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow for her work that blends frank autobiography with criticism and philosophy. A poet who leads the MFA program at CalArts, Nelson’s work wrestles with issues of gender, LGBT theory, art and violence; her most recent books are the award-winning memoir “The Argonauts” and the reissued “The Red Parts,” about her aunt’s murder. We talked to her about the MacArthur and what it means for her work.
