Publisher’s Letter... Dear Friend: Each new year holds the power of possibility. There’s a chance for reflection on the past year, redemption, and a time to start anew. Each January I am infused with enthusiasm, hope and the energy of looking toward what is possible. We can start anew each day, as well— and allow the entire year to be infused with a fervor for reflection, renewal and rebirth. I believe the key to keeping this inspiration on a daily basis is achieved through balance. Balance an apple and a banana on a scale and the side with the apple effortlessly raises the banana. Does the apple have more nutritional value than the banana? No, it simply weighs more.
Embracing Change 9
Cultivating the New Year With Purpose
In a similar way we determine balance in our lives. What we value most may not be where we devote most of our time. Instead, we place value on the responsibilities that weigh the most: usually job or family. As with the apple and banana, even though our job may place more pressure on our time constraints, our personal time is equally valuable.
No Right Amount of Devotion
The seasons also play a vital role in balance. They have an essential purpose in the ever-constant renewal of the earth. Spring represents birth, summer is growth, fall is the harvest and winter invites rest. What is interesting is that our bodies follow the same schedule. This bodily reaction to the seasons is natural; but friction occurs when we fight these involuntary responses. Rather than feeling guilty about a sluggish winter, we should value this rest period and acknowledge the renewed strength it will bring in the spring.
Wishing you a most joyous new year,
2016 Astrological Forecast

While some of the compositions are based on his prison experience, Vincent does not define himself or his writings from that perspective, although he assures the reader that he considers that experience a gift.
Excerpts: “I Shed my Shield in final surrender and open my Impassioned Heart; This Cloistered Soul now breathes New Life; This Key, this Gift has made it so.” “Shall we seek to see the Truth and make peace with the universe? Come to me now Theopnuestos, “Breathe into me” the Truth.” “Perhaps it is the human frailty of being bound by all things measured. Seconds ticking…hours wasting; Days gone by and how much life is left to live. The speed of light in time and space, an effort vain and futile. Let us rather watch a plant grow, hold an ancient hand and feel its history; Feel the Sun and breathe once more. Breathe Life Eternal into your Soul, for it is Now and it is Here” “To be made naked of all once held so dear…and if this punishment is all that comes from past transgressions, my gratefulness is profound, for a darker place well could have been.” The kinship of Vincent’s words and artist Jeanine Christman Handel’s illustrations bring both to life in a luminous palette of symmetry rarely seen in books today. This is a must read for the introspective person.

Messy Wholi-ness Cultivating Presence no Matter What Life Brings
ife does not need to express itself perfectly to be a perfect expression. In fact, we can expect life to be imperfect, messy, and unpredictable throughout our lives. Allowing and not having resistance to ‘what is’ helps us cultivate choices that are empowering and creative. Not having resistance to ‘what is’ is not about passivity, but rather seeing clearly for a proactive approach to each moment. What I am going to explore here is what I call Embodied Presence in relation to the seasons of Reorganizational Healing, developed by Donny Epstein. In the field of Reorganizational Healing, four different types of consciousness and corresponding energy states are available. These four types are called Seasons: Discover, Transform, Awaken, and Integrate. In life there is a timing and authentic rhythm to how things are expressed (as how in the spring we plant seeds and in the fall we harvest.). When we are aligned in our actions, thoughts, and feelings with the Season we are truly in, there is congruence. Within congruence, Embodied Presence is possible. So, what does it mean to be present within each season? In the season of Discover, we create pain or suffering to avoid other pain. In Discover, we start to see how we have adapted our lives to protect ourselves or to feel safe. The Season of Discover is the ultimate exploration into how we have disconnected with ourselves. This is a significant exploration, and Embodied Presence within this Season is about realness, rawness, and vulnerability; about being naked to our true experience. Embodied Presence within Discover requires us to be aware of our pain and/or suffering and have the willingness to feel what is there to be felt, no matter how difficult it may be. The first step in Embodied Presence is not judging where we are. This is challenging, especially if our sense of self is dependent upon our life looking a certain way. For instance, “I am not an angry person” may be how you have been conditioned to view yourself. You may have learned
from an early age within your family dynamic that expressing anger wasn’t tolerated or accepted. As a result, you may suppress, deny, or ignore any signs that you are angry. However, the body cannot be fooled. Often our body expresses what we repress. Symptoms such as migraines, sciatica, ulcers, cancer, and arthritis are the body’s way of letting us know how much we’ve been hurt. When we don’t connect to the anger, we may end up with a lack of appropriate boundaries and give our power away, all in the name of not seeing ourselves as an ‘angry’ person. Embodied Presence says: ‘Let’s not judge this anger. Let’s not even connect a story to it for why it’s there.’ Embodied Presence says: ‘My feelings are valid in this moment. I have a right to feel them’. When we recognize this truth, we are being with ‘what is’ without a story, just the energy of the feeling. In the moment that we are truly present with ‘what is’, with what our body is telling us we are feeling (not what our head thinks), instantaneously the energy of the feeling moves and shifts into a place of acceptance, often accompanied by a feeling of space, a widening of our range of choices, and peace within our mind and body. In the Season of Transform, our Embodied Presence becomes fortified. We feel the energy of empowerment, passion, and purpose, and are ready to move forward. In this season problems are converted organically into opportunities for growth and learning because we have more life energy available to us. Embodied Presence here means acknowledging and accepting that we are more than we ever thought we were and must now become accountable to that evolving wisdom. We feel this season in our body as an increased access to vitality and energy. We become willing participants in a complex world. In the Season of Awaken, we gain the desire to share our gifts from the deepest part of our Being. We acknowledge and accept the divine timing of things and dance with the grace of how life is unfolding. Embodied Presence here is inclusive of all life experiences and
“Allowing and not having resistance to ‘what is’ helps us cultivate choices that are empowering and creative. ”
Evolving…in SANTA FE
nothing is rejected consciously. Gratitude, grace, acceptance, and love permeate our behavior, thought, and feelings. Our body registers this Presence with openness, flexibility and peace. In the Season of Integrate, we blend two different Seasons for new perspective and a deepening of insight and wisdom into who we are. Embodied Presence, no matter what season we are in, carries with it the blessing of authentic wisdom. Wisdom is the currency of Spirit. When we are truly present with ‘what is’, no matter what is happening in our life, we recognize that it’s not our circumstance that challenges our life. It is the energy state we are coming from and the lens of the Season we are seeing life through. What is of utmost importance is to have the most efficient and adaptive listening platform to access what life brings. This means optimizing and evolving your physiological response through your brain and nervous system. Our ability to be present with what life brings and have the emotional range to respond appropriately, empowers us to accept the support of the Cosmos in awakening our ability to heal, grow, and accept who we truly are.

Heart & Business
Business as a Practice
eing in business is one of the fastest ways to get to know your strengths and, also, the areas that need a bit of work. There's no doubt about it, business builds character (integrity, temper, dharma, worth, honesty, courage, strength, fortitude, backbone). It requires strength, focus, commitment, clarity, confidence, and consistency and certainly requires time to integrate your unique gifts so deeply, that it's then possible to demonstrate your brilliance in the world. The truth is we discover, determine, and decide, as we grow no matter what the commitment. Business is truly a practice. To be clear, a practice is study, discipline, exercise, training, application, warm-up, and a constant go over again and again. Would you say the profession, career, or business you've chosen asks this of you? I often liken it to a yoga practice or working with a trainer. These activities require focus, commitment and a degree of consistency. If you've ever practiced yoga, climbed a mountain that kicked your butt, or trained for an extended amount of time there are moments that surface I call the "ego eradicator". Yes, the tipping point when the challenge becomes humbling and we have no other choice but to re-center our perspective. To truly develop business practice it's essential to bump up against challenge in order to become more resilient, wise, developed, or more clear. In order to move
through and not around growth there are two primary areas that most circle back to frequently: clarity and confidence. These are the sticking points that determine forward movement or stagnation. If effort is to be fruitful clarity is number one. Now, to step into the sweet spot of clarity we must open the door, eliminate mental congestion and move with intentional action. The fastest pathway to Clarification is Simplification. Ask yourself: • What is clarity? • Why does it matter? • Without clarity what is the experience and what does it cost me? Looking to simplify? Here are some suggestions: • Commit and with consistency • Focus •Organize and re-organize • Energy Management. Batch your time and focus • Gain more knowledge in one particular area with focus • Get honest with what needs to change, figure out a system, and commit for at least 3 months • Reach out to those who have more experience than you do and are focused • Find a partner that will help to hold the focus
• List what's complicated, organize it in order of importance, visualize what it would look like simplified and full of ease and make decisions. The goal is to elevate and grow capacity for growth. Remaining the same while growing a business or career is not an option. Capacity for more responsibility, clarity, and confidence must expand and the pathway requires commitment and consistency. Being is business is a doorway into your light, your light lives in your heart and the brighter your light the farther you will see the path ahead.

“Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.” ~Karen Kaiser Clark
HANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE.... Just the sound of it might make you cringe. Change is one of those words that we just don't like. Let's accept it, we are creatures of habit and anything that has us do things differently makes us nervous. On the other hand, we always want others to change but we don't want to change ourselves. Why is that? It’s a new year and around this time we’ve all made our resolutions and have decided to change something about ourselves. If you can befriend change, things will become much easier for you. 6 REASONS WHY EMBRACING CHANGE IS GOOD FOR YOU 1. Change is growth. You are constantly changing, from the moment that you were born until the day that you die, you are changing. You are not the same
Evolving…in SANTA FE
person you were yesterday, a week ago or a month ago. Your body and mind are changing, growing, expanding, every second of every day. It's part of your make up. With change comes growth. You are growing as a human being. If you aren't growing you are dying. A great mantra I repeat to myself daily is "I'm constantly increasing my health, my wealth, my knowledge & my creativity, all while helping others do the same." This means I'm growing, changing and learning. 2. Change gets you out of a rut. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting things to change. If you've been in a rut, not knowing how to change things but wanting different results you can start getting out of your 'funk' by taking small steps. The more steps you take towards change, the easier it gets. Keep this in mind since you might want to make very drastic changes this January and then you’ll revert to old habits. Go slowly and steady. 3. Change is our teacher. When you get stubborn and resist change, life somehow has the ability to come back and bring change in a much more exaggerated way. For example, I had a client that hated her job, didn't have the courage to leave but she knew she had to. Her job gave her a false sense of security and comfort. It was easier to stay and be miserable than to do something about the situation. Well, within a month of mentioning this to me, she got let go of. Pay attention to what change is trying to tell you. 4. Change creates curiosity. When you are open to change you become curious as to what is next, 'what will it look like?' 'How will I deal with it?' ‘How will this new year pan out?’ It's like a child figuring out everything in their new world. Why not learn from our children and look at all the changing pieces with the same awe? It will enhance your curiosity. 5. Change strengthens our creativity. When you are thrown into new scenarios, it forces you to tap into your
creative powers. You have to figure out how to navigate this unknown territory so you become resourceful and think out of the box. 6. Change creates new possibilities. When you can surrender to change that's when wonderful, unexpected things happen. You are setting up the stage for good to come into your life. I say that the universe rewards those who are brave. Be open to change and watch the miracles show up. Be open to change and watch the fears melt away. Be open to change and watch new worlds emerge in front of your eyes. How about you, what changes are you fearing? What changes have you overcome? What changes are you committed to happen during this coming year? May you be blessed with a wonderful 2016!

2016 Astrological Forecast
BY CINDY MCKEAN
eady for another exciting year? 2016 is full of promise and potential! It will have opportunities for new directions with health, personal goals, and conscious evolution. Starting on January 5–January 25, Mercury, the planet of communication, goes through the first of four retrograde motions this year. Retrograde motion means that a planet appears to be moving backwards in the sky. For around three weeks, there is a tendency for things to get jumbled or delayed. Back up your data, be careful when travelling, make sure to check and double check contracts before you sign them. All Mercury retrogrades this year are in earth signs, which brings a hue of sense and practicality to the retrograde energy. Mercury will retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, an earth sign. That will help you be focused on the practical aspects of life. It's an ideal time to reorganize into a simple structure that will facilitate your efforts for the year to come. Also in January, Jupiter, the planet of expansiveness, goes retrograde too. Jupiter is an outward-looking planet. During this backward motion which lasts until June, it's a great time to look inward, reevaluate, and reorient yourself to help you get ahead when the planet returns into direct motion. Being in the detail-oriented sign of Virgo until September, it's a great time to restructure habits with your lifestyle, diet, and expenditures. This will help you in particular if you want to eat healthier, decrease spending, and create healthy routines. Let your hair down in February and the first three weeks of March. Things are mostly smooth sailing. Aim for traditional ways to celebrate Valentine's Day when Venus, the planet of love, will be in Capricorn. If you’re serious about your partner, this is a favorable time to propose. March commences a time of changing storms over the next few months. Jupiter will be at a favorable angle with Pluto, the
planet of transformation, and a challenging angle with Saturn, the planet of restriction. Saturn will go retrograde for around four and a half months; it may not affect you personally—but it affects the population at large in the areas of finance, integrity, and government power. Overall, it'll be energetic awareness towards the greater good. Don't take shortcuts during this time. The road to personal evolution during the period between March and April is better followed one step at a time. These angles will clear in around three weeks but they'll hit again in May, June, and December as Jupiter meets them while in direct motion. At the end of April, the second Mercury retrograde for 2016 is in the sign of Taurus. During this time, reflect on your values—both physical and moral. If you feel like you haven't been following your higher purpose, you'll have a chance to redo your approach during this period. You may feel heightened enthusiasm when Jupiter goes direct the second week of May. If an infection breaks out before or around June, don't have too much fear. For a period of a year, you may hear about medical breakthroughs and advances in research as Saturn, the planet of restriction and research, makes a challenging aspect with Neptune, the planet of elusiveness, Evolving…in SANTA FE
In December, be sure to get all of your ducks in a row before the holidays for the final Mercury retrograde of the year will occur from December 19 through the first week of the new year. As if coming full circle in a year, it will once again be in the sign of Capricorn. If you plan on travelling for the holidays, make extra time for delays and snafus. Have a backup plan prepared in case things don't go as planned during this period. Buy all your Christmas gifts before the retrograde. Once the retrograde hits, you don't need to wait until the New Year to follow resolutions—this period is a good time to start. By the end of December, 2016, all of the planets, with the exception of Mercury, will have left retrograde motion and gone confusion, and drugs. In 2014 there was an direct. Ebola scare.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
January 2016 Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Mercury is retrograde, teaching you the power of words and thoughts. Aquarians can deal with anxiety (because of your excitable ruling planet, Uranus), so it’s important to harness your mind.You’re here to transform restlessness into enthusiasm and creativity. Inner thoughts build your outer world. By observing habitual and subconscious thoughts and you’re on your way to freedom!
Do your friends and activities empower you? Or drag you down? Think about what you truly love to do — and the kind of people you want in your life. Cleanse out limiting situations and allow new energy and people to flow in! This increases self-esteem, and even your finances. Long-term partnerships improve and you’ll find things in common you hadn’t explored yet! Being authentic brings serenity, love and abundance.
Aries (March 21 – April 19) Exciting things happen with career! But since Mercury is retrograde, explore options this month, but hold off on decisions. More is revealed in February, although you’ll be tempted by and convinced about right now. Believe it or not, something even better’s on the way! In relationships, so be patient, allow dust to settle, and communicate in depth later instead of saying/doing things you regret now.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) As a Taurus, your values and standards are very important. Make sure the spiritual path you’re on matches your deepest connection with the Universe. You might need to make changes, or at least stand up to someone about your beliefs that differ from theirs. You might also need to work out financial differences with your spouse. If single, don’t settle for people who are vastly divergent from your core self!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) With Mercury retrograde, it’s too easy to cause relationship challenges through misunderstandings. Meditate on releasing past power struggles with old or current partners. Take deep breaths before conversations of whatever sort. Find your center of power so you don’t assume people are out to get you. If you’re coming for a balanced place, deep bonding happens in relationships — and Evolving…in SANTA FE
maybe a positive shift at work too. Allow intuition to guide you rather than fear!
yourself free and opening your mind to fulfillment in all areas!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Someone wants to know you at depth! Even if it’s a longterm partner, it’s an opportunity to become more emotionally intimate. In order not to be threatened or feel fear of possible abandonment (both of which pull you into your shell so you appear cold), meditate about letting go of old hurts. Be in the present moment with this person who loves you! It is safe to be here now!
Create a new budget for the New Year. Meditate about how you might overspend or be unconscious of money when you’re angry as an outlet for uncomfortable feelings. Getting clear about prosperity opens doors to a new job or better circumstances at your current one. You’ll also find inventive ways to manage your stress and improve your health when you’re fully present to emotions and not avoiding your inner signals!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) Mercury retrograde can cause confusion in the balance of career and relationships. Get clear about taking on extra work and how much is expected of you. Also let your spouse/partner know you’ll be less available. Be good to yourself. Get enough sleep. Treat your body well with good food. Breathe in between tasks to destress! It’s possible to be successful, happy and healthy!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) I know it isn’t fun to contemplate focused planning, but it’s time to move toward goals. Meditate on your priorities. Distractions are basically wasted time and energy. You’ll have more joy from analyzing your thoughts and actions — and releasing what drags down your life progress. Relationships, money and selfesteem improve from this short time of discipline!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Childhood issues can be stirred up to be healed. Instead of reacting, meditate on the roots of the feelings. You respond so strongly now because you’re reliving a familiar emotional pattern. Examining your subconscious and letting go of the causes of your pain brings greater intimacy in a current relationship, or attracts a partner who is available on many levels. You’ll also heal old stress patterns and feel internally peaceful.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Libras seem harmonious, but actually you can be addicted to drama (and then you can re-establish peace). Meditate on this part of yourself, since you could be stirring up relationship trouble with Mercury retrograde this month. Balanced doesn’t mean boring! Also write about the positive and negative things of 2015. Then rip up or burn the pages, setting 13
