The sun slowly sets in Madison for Madame Envy. She spins wildly away from the lights shining on the capitol of Wisconsin. A new path of the brightest hours to be spent in Chicago, Illinois. An unexpected plan with pieces falling together all over the map. Endless questions stir inside his head. “Where to go from here? What to do once I am there?” Are the most frequented. Dancing his way into familiar but unknown lands. 5 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ December 2013
Seth Nayes continues his journey. With one thing in mind. To learn, to live and to go above and beyond what he has done before. He finished writing his book before he left his home state. To the windy, brutal, dangerous city of Chicago. Still in the works. It is within hope to be released in the new year. One of the main reasons for leaving his beloved troop Peach Pies Caburlesque is earning a spot on a show at Roscoe’s on Halstead named, SIN. Every Thursday you can see fire, sparks and beautiful performers giving it ~Their~ all. But also a job at the popular show girl shop, Beatnix. Where he can costume you to whatever gender you please. It’s been a year since Envy was featured in Eden Magazine. Since then he’s been featured again on Vogue Italia’s Website. Toured to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum and Ohio State Reformatory. Has been featured in the FIERCE Festival which is the first international Queer Burlesque Festival. Which the Peach Pies will host next year in Madison July 24th-27th. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fierce-International-Queer-Burlesque-Festival/ The most shining moment this year is that he was a featured performer in Wisconsin’s First Burlesque Festival. The Creme De La Creme Fest. Groundbreaking for his home state and such a heartwarming moment. Helping others become comfortable and confident with their skin. Multiple interviews, projects, performances and concerts have kept him busy. 6 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ December 2013
But the move to Chicago has been a strenuous one at that. Send him love and light for his future. Also wish his long red locks au revoir because on December 8th he sheds his trademark locks for a national salon spot for the Dennis Bartolomei Salon. Change is something that everyone must accept, expected or not. Whether it be loss, gain or a broken heart. Everything changes whether you like it or not. Take it with stride, grace and pride. One of the most valuable lessons learned by Mister Envy, Madame Envy, Seth Nayes and everyone in between.

is seeking you.”
13 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ November 2013
It’s always something. Our human lives provide us with many wondrous possibilities and opportunities, but often we become immersed in doubt, difficulty and drama. We worry and fret, creating confusion in our once open field. We become captured and view potential possibilities as shrouded with stubborn obstacles. Then a whirling vortex of negatives pulls us into calamity thinking... “Oh no, not me, not now. I can’t, what will people think?” and the biggie, “I’m not ready for this.” Life will always deliver unexpected circumstances as grist for your transformation mill. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re ready or not, here it comes. Become a warrior, not a worrier. The power is in the moment. The power is in your response. Determine always to respond, rather than resist, and uplift yourself when overwhelm sets in. Let your higher awareness take the lead. Be grateful for everything that comes and know it has shown up because you have something to learn from it. Gravitate to gratitude and let it pervade your perception. At the apex of choice, of shift, of turning toward your true vision, action must be taken. Creation involves vision, choice, action, and determination. It’s a process. All is dependent upon the intensity of your initial intention. Energetically speaking, passion, focus, thrust, and trajectory fuel your outcomes.
All and everything first exists in the unseen world before it manifests in the material world. Align with your passion and persist, no matter what difficulties occur. Alchemically congeal the energy of your dream into a form, imagine it growing, assuming its qualities, season it with a chosen tone and fuel it with your creative desire. Water it daily with your loving intention. Tuck it into the edges of your awareness to simmer till it reaches full term and seeks in its fullness a way to be born into your life. When I was a single mom with three young children, one baby, a toddler and a seven year old, I was awarded a scholarship to college for the third time. The first time I flunked out, the second time I dropped out, and now, after a bitter divorce from my first husband, I was given my final opportunity to complete my BFA in Art Education. Without any child support, I was dependent on welfare and food stamps. Since that aid never coved expenses, I had to baby-sit, teach art classes for children and yoga classes for adults to scrape together enough money to make it through each month. In addition I had homework, papers to write, along with caring for my children. This was an incredibly difficult situation that lasted three years. Against almost impossible resistance I pushed through each month, having to do everything myself.

To find my strength and stay on track I arose pre-dawn for yoga and meditation. I refused to give up, determined to succeed, no matter what the personal cost. I had to rise to the challenge. I discovered a book of energizing exercises and I began to do them every night so I could keep going. I would regenerate my energies each day and propel myself onward on my adventure. This situation instilled in me tremendous independence, laserlike focus, and unshakeable perseverance. I was in training to become an excellent, highly developed, successful person. No other experience could have taken me to that point. In meeting this difficult situation and over-riding all resistance, I began to feel that I could accomplish anything.

through Mindfulness Art by Maryam Morrison 16 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ November 2013
By Sherri Cortand and Shelly R. Wilson
When I was studying for my B.A. at Mount St. Mary College in Newburgh, New York, I took a class called Meditation East and West. In that class we studied the great Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teacher, and peace activist, Thích Nhất Hạnh, who was a pioneer in the development of western Buddhism and western meditation and brought us the practice of mindfulness. In Buddhist meditation practices, mindfulness, which is also translated as awareness, is considered to be of great importance on the path to enlightenment; and establishing mindfulness in one’s day-to-day life means maintaining a calm awareness of one’s body, feelings, thoughts and perceptions. In other words, being present in the moment and paying attention to your senses: being profoundly alert to your senses of touch, sight, smell, sound, and taste, and how you feel at any given moment. The textbook we used in class was The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thích Nhất Hạnh, and he said to practice mindfulness in all things, including
when you’re doing things like washing the dishes; and if you couldn’t do that, then you shouldn’t wash the dishes. I confess; I laughed when I first read that advice, and I did not buy into mindfulness right away. It wasn’t until many years later that the light bulb finally turned on in my head, and I went back and reread The Miracle of Mindfulness with a much more open mind. These days I am happy to wash the dishes and practice mindfulness at the same time, and here’s my two-part process to bring mindfulness to everyday chores: 1. View the chore as a positive event. Make it an exercise in self-understanding and stress relief. 2. As you do the chore, focus on what you’re doing—and nothing else. For example, Feel the warm, soapy water on your hands as you wash the dishes; experience the vibrations of the vacuum cleaner as you cover the area of the floor; enjoy the warmth of the laundry as you fold it; feel the freedom of letting go of unneeded objects as you put them in a box for the Salvation Army. In other words: use your senses to be in the moment.

Meditation is also a great way to practice mindfulness, as is deep breathing, which, of course, you can do while you’re meditating. I went from not giving mindfulness any credence to becoming a true believer in the power of this tool to help us on our spiritual journey, and I asked my pal, the author, intuitive medium, and metaphysical talk show host Shelly R. Wilson for her take on mindfulness, awareness, and meditation. Here are Shelly’s thoughts plus a special meditation she put together for us:

• Notice what you are seeing with your eyes and hearing with your ears. Be fully present and fully aware of your surroundings. All you should feel at this moment is being present. Continue being mindful of your breathing and relax. You are present in this moment. Originally • Express your gratitude for this opportunity to enhance your awareness. As you continue to be mindful of your breaths, move your fingers and wiggle your toes. Know that you are love and you are loved. Mindfulness is one of many ways available to move ourselves forward spiritually, and my intention for this article is to remind you to explore and use your innate power to expedite your spiritual growth. Namaste.

An Excerpt from
To the Buddha Nature Within
and the Buddhi Mind By Rashmi Khilnani
Author of Shiva Speaks: Conversations with aha Avatar Babaji
Part 1 Artwork by Maryam Morrison 20 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ December 2013
“It is fine to let the mind move from desire to desire if one watches the desires as the detached witness. From this perspective, the discerning higher Buddhi mind engages, takes charge of and becomes the knower of the desires. This allows for a balance between participating in life and detachment.” www.rashmikhilnani.com
Dear Lord Buddha, as we strive to release attachment after attachment to people, activities, beliefs, thought-forms, and material objects, is it permissible or us to retain a certain amount of desire and enthusiasm? Dearest, do not allow your mind to confuse you. I Shakyamuni Buddha very much worked on attaining a state of desirelessness and detachment. As I keep mentioning, this is another time and another frequency of energy. All materialism and the nature of duality as you know it is about to dissolve and take on a very different frequency in this prelude to the end of time and space as you know it. In all your scriptures, not just the Buddhist, you have been taught time and again that an overly clinging attitude to your body, your thoughts, to your emotions, relationships, and material objects leads to suffering as the nature of your reality is one of constant change. You have been taught in your holy scriptures that you are not the body, you are not your wealth, and that you are none of these things that the mind and ego claim. For 13,000 years on this planet, human beings have endlessly clung to a very limited understanding of who they are. My own detachment from clinging to desires, external material objects and mind/body/
intellect consciousness finally led to the phenomenon of my enlightenment. This awakening sent out a vibration all over the world for many generations to come (for those who wished to seek) of detached witnessing of the mind, body and intellect. It connected seekers to the energy of disidentification and detachment from this consciousness. It connected seekers all over the globe to their Buddha nature within. In this time now, wisdom lies in enjoying whatever comes to you within the flow of the river of your life. Whatever comes to you easily, effortlessly, and organically; enjoy it. Wisdom now lies in enjoying things, people and places that arise from the Divine principles: Highest good of all concerned. Within the free will of all concerned. In this current time, a powerful perspective to mastering detachment, non-identification, and detached witnessing is letting go of that part of your mind which wishes to cling or just won’t let go when the flow asks that of you. It is this clinging to people, objects, and places that no longer serve the higher good, moment to moment, that is one of the root causes of immense human pain and suffering.

For the truth be known, in spite of achieving greater and greater simplicity in my life, there is still a very princess-like component to my psychological makeup. My Archangels recently guided me to sell my Delhi flat and spend the money as I wished without too much seriousness as to where and how, which I did. So there is this part of me that enjoys abundant flow, and I know that part is O.K., but I am talking about the part that still exists in many of us, myself included, that makes us tired and depleted with its automatic ceaseless hankering. Dearest one, becoming the “Sakshi” ( the detached witness) lifts the mind into stillness, calm, peace and leads one to feeling whole and complete. This leads to a blissful state where one connects to all that is, and in this state hoarding, hankering, obsessing, and craving, which are all different attributes of the mind, dissolve as one has a complete experience of the whole universe within one’s beingness. When the tree knows itself as a complete and whole tree, it need no longer cling to a particular leaf or branch or root.
flow, one with the entire cosmos, and you have learned to bring this state of calm and ease into your life, moment to moment. Would you agree? There are, on the other hand, the moments when you forget to do this from time to time, and you get caught up in the stress created by your mind. Peace, fulfillment, and atonement go flying off. Your tendency might be to blame yourself or justify it, or sometimes even go into denial of this black cloud of stress. This then makes you feel very alone, totally separate, and misunderstood—a complete victim of your mind and a stooge to the intellectual jargon of your fellow brothers and sisters. At this point in the sorry mess, if you don’t make time to slow down and take spiritual stock, starting with a deep breath, then you start sliding into a complete rollercoaster of hellish misery. As you know, dear one, stress is nothing but fear.

You Childlike Nature by Cosmo Cavallaro
“Life finds its purpose and fulfillment in the expansion of happiness. Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower, and draws all good things toward you”. ~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
The past few days I have been preoccupied with what appeared, on the surface, to be a difficult situation. It kept trying to pull me out of my normal state of optimism and acceptance of the vicissitudes of life. Like most of us, when I encounter these moments I try to adjust my interpretation of the situation in a positive way. I try to recognize what the lesson is
that the Universe is trying to teach me. In this instance what I discovered was that I was taking myself and the situation too dismal. I forgot my childlike mindset of not taking life too seriously. I forgot to remind myself that life is short, that the clouds above me will soon give way to the bright blazing sun.
25 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ December 2013
I forgot to remain as close to the flowers, the grass, and the butterflies as I did when I was a child when they were not much taller than I was. But as an adult I seemed to have outgrown them and have to lower myself and stoop down to experience them. As adults, we must nurture our innate ability to see the value of humor and lightheartedness which can diminish as we age. Everyday problems can seem bigger than they are. Work takes precedence over play, and we have less incentive to use our imaginative minds focusing on what is humorous and comical. Yet, it is in these enjoyable thought patterns that solutions can manifest in our awareness. “Seriousness is an incapacitating disease.” ~ Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh The answer to my seemingly overwhelming situation came to me in the blink of an eye when I was enjoying a playful time with my two young nephews. They were just being silly as kids could be and were laughing hysterically. Children appreciate all that is silly as a matter of course. Their grasp of humor is instinctual, and even the smallest absurdities provoke joyous screams of extreme laughter. I couldn’t help but smile imaging what it was like to be so carefree. And within a few minutes I was laughing hysterically myself. When we remember our childhood, we recall the pleasures of reciting nonsense poems, making up strange games, or playing pretend. This unabashed silliness nourished our vitality and creativity. We can take in this nourishment once again
by giving ourselves permission to lighten up and be silly. Watching children at play brought me back to my true self; and my true self, my normal state of mind, has always been like the court jester. Within a few brief moments of observing their joyfulness I engaged myself in their fun. And that brought resolution to what I thought was a difficult situation. “He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe with childlike eyes is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” ~Albert Einstein In a joyful state of mind acceptance and tolerance is enhanced and our problems become less complicated. Too often we reject the wonderful childlike nature that is an inherent, inborn aspect of the self. We play yet we do not lose ourselves in play, and our imaginations are never truly given free reign because we regard the products of irrational creativity as being undignified or valueless. Some people think it childish to wear a funny hat in public, stop and play hop-scotch with children as you are walking to work in your suit and tie. . I do not! Silliness itself does indeed constitute a vital part of human existence on a myriad of levels. We must not lose interest in these cheerful mindsets, but to make them a part of our lives we must be ready to sacrifice a little dignity and a lot of fear. We must totally ignore the judgments of what other people think. It is of little consequence if someone thinks it is inappropriate or meaningless to be silly and childlike.

When I am living my life on purpose following the meter of my own rhythms and my intentions are rooted in love, I don’t care about other people’s opinions. I can be ridiculously silly and be oblivious to my environment simply enjoying the moment. Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do. ~Jean de la Bruyere Our first taste of ethereal bliss is often a byproduct of our willingness to experiment in what we deem to be outrageous, nonsensical, or absurd. We delight in ridiculousness not only because laughter is intrinsically pleasurable, but also because it serves as a reminder that existence itself can be a joyful experience. It is precisely because so much of life is inescapably serious that lightheartedness, fun and silliness should be regarded as a significant priority in our lives. Living our lives in the present moment is to experience the purity of our existence. Through the magic of our imagination, you can be or become anything you want, a photographer, a musician, a pilot. Whether you take hundreds of silly pictures, revel in the adulation of your fans as you rock on your air guitar in front of the mirror, or turn your office desk into a jet cockpit, the ensuing laughter and contentment will help you see that lighthearted fun and adulthood can coexistence and are not at all incompatible. It is in fact a profound elixir for living an emotionally, mentally and physically healthy life.

My name is Pawel I am a Sound Healer, Visionary and Energy Intuitive who has dedicated his life to healing myself and others during these challenging and fascinating times of energetic transition. In 2008 I had a stroke in which my face became paralysed. Advanced medical support did not help and as a last resort I became interested in Reiki and began my training in this therapy in order to treat myself. Self-healing techniques helped me to regain muscle tone in my face within 3 months. After my stroke, my awareness was heightened; I learnt to develop my creative potential by studying alchemy and sacred geometry. I started creating spiritual art, workshops and courses by embracing my galactic heritage and my cosmic connection.
Reconnect with You
My acceleration of self-alchemy released hidden gifts and blessings regarding energy healing, resonance and sound work. I began embracing sacred sound. This affinity for repetitive, rhythmic sounds led me to connect with the pure universal sound. Pure sound, the very essence of our daily communication and communion, a medium of our daily existence, forms the bridge to your imagination which harnesses new levels of awareness of our transformation showing us clearly where we are on our journey. Sound became a signpost to pure imagination for me. I started exploring the vastness of pure consciousness and witnessed its daily expansion. 34 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ December 2013

For me, Sound Weaving is an inner journey of transformation, supported by my work through the medium of my voice and sound tools and profoundly reflected in the new sonic landscapes. When I use my voice, I am at the gateway to the ‘invisible’ world and I am invited to access all that lies beyond my physical expression in the ‘Sound Dream Weave’. From here I gather the sonic threads with which to weave a beautiful sonic tapestry. As the voice therapy progresses, it is developing a rhythm of its own, the note weaving creates itself and the new sonic landscape emerges and manifests in `now`.
Having a sound session is a very special healing experience, as the human voice is one of the most powerful tools within sound healing. Sound works on the principle of sympathetic resonance and entrainment. While combining voice and contemporary sound instruments we can work on re-balancing our energetic signature, using sympathetic resonance which will re-train the unbalanced areas back to their perfect – original vibration.

GOD and PRAYER by Ellen Angelica Pendergast (Ellen Heller)
Painting by Daniel Maidman ~ The Prayer 44 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ December 2013
It occurred to me the other day, (Realization of course!) that we all pray to GOD; so many religions have been formed by mankind, and they all have the same commonality; we all pray to a BEING CALLED GOD…(of course, some are called ALLAH, etc.), but the basic meaning is the same….
is Everything and Everyone…for God is an Energy, called Love. Therefore, a true prayer, is a prayer of Gratitude, rather than supplication; a prayer of gratitude produces what we are grateful for….a prayer of need, produces more need, and a prayer of gratitude for Love and All good, produces that to which we are indeed grateful for, and in such magnitude, when bringing forth the Power of GOD….for when we do, we are bringing the power of ALL THAT IS.
Praying to God is basically going to the ‘BOSS”….’ In other words, the “all in all…” You can’t go any higher, so to speak…. and why is this? Why does it WORK? So many instances and situations prove that it DOES WORK; that a prayer to May you prosper, evolve, and Love as God, and when done with others, is mag- you all journey onto your connection with nificent, and rewarding….. the reason is the rest of YOU! always, well, because it’s GOD we are talking to! Blessings! The truth is that prayer works when we are speaking to GOD because, (and this is SO important!) when we pray to GOD, we are actually calling ALL ENERGY, in ALL FORMS, to our aid and assistance! We are calling forth the entire POWER OF THE UNIVERSE, in other words, LOVE, to our ‘rescue.” It can best be explained very simply… we are calling the whole world to assist us in our prayer, rather than just one person. For God/Energy/Love is in All, and is, in fact, the trees, the moon, the stars; every Being on this planet, including every creature, animal, plant, etc., AND includes all in every other solar system, galaxy, universe…all are summoned! All Angels, Saints, departed Loved ones, etc….all are called when one calls to GOD, for God is ALL, in ALL; every living thing…the Alpha and the Omega….God

Artic Wolf 50 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ December 2013
Artic Wolves often called the “polar wolf” or “white wolf,” Arctic wolves inhabit the Arctic regions of North America and Greenland. Thanks to its isolation, the Arctic wolf is not threatened by hunting and habitat destruction in the same way as its southern relatives. Arctic wolves are carnivorous hunters. By nature they help to control the populations of other animals in the region like the musk ox, caribou and Arctic hares. Unlike other species of wolf, the Arctic wolf rarely comes into contact with humans and is not threatened by hunting or persecution. Industrial development threatens the Arctic wolf as an increasing number of mines, roads, and pipelines encroach on its territory and interrupt its food supply.
Climate Change Extreme weather variations in recent years have made it more difficult for populations of musk ox and Arctic hares to find food which has caused a significant decline in their numbers. As a result, this has reduced the traditional food supply of the Arctic wolf. What WWF Is Doing WWF works with governments, businesses, and communities across the Arctic to combat the threats to the region and to preserve its rich biodiversity, including the presence of the Arctic wolf.

Zen Shiatsu By Bevan Loon Zen Shiatsu as currently practiced has only been around since the 1970s when Shizuto Masunaga formulated the system from his training in Namikoshi Shiatsu, Western Psychology and research into older Chinese Medicine texts. Shiatsu literally means “finger pressure” and the Zen portion added by Masunaga refers to the state that the shiatsu practitioner should be in while giving shiatsu. A relaxed, non-judgemental state that simply observes rather than attaches to anything that is happening.
practised in China called Tuina and Anma as well as native Japanese massage called Teate.
Somewhere around the 6th Century AD, China and Japan began commercial trade. This obviously brought with it cultural exchange as commercial trade always does. China at this point already had a very comprehensive system of medicine which included acupuncture, moxa, herbs and massage. Japan took many of these systems and amalgamated them into its own culture, changing them slightly, as alShiatsu’s roots can be traced back to ways happens. more ancient forms of massage that were 52 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ December 2013
Massage flourished in Japan for a fair amount of time. In fact, so much so that around 300 years ago, all doctors in Japan were required to study anma, tuina and other forms of massage to properly learn their anatomy. Over time, massage became sidelined, especially with the introduction of western medicine with its focus on biomedicine.
maintaining western anatomy and physiology. Masunaga’s shiatsu is unique in treating not just localised acupuncture points or localised tension, but in treating entire meridians over the body, with a theory that ascribes functions to the various meridians in a way more akin to five element theory and zhang fu theory from Chinese medicine.
Tamai Tempaku coined the word Shiatsu in the early 1900s, as a way of describing massage and bodywork that he was working with. He wrote a book called Shiatsu Ho which is considered the first book written on the subject of shiatsu. Tempaku tried to combine western anatomy and physiology and traditional anma and tuina into a larger, more complete system. Tokujiro Namikoshi is the next person in shiatsu’s lineage. He is often thought of as the father of modern shiatsu, and worked his entire life to promote the art. He managed to open the first shiatsu school called the Japan Shiatsu College (which is still in existence today). Namikoshi eschewed the Chinese medical roots of shiatsu and brought a heavy western influence and approach to massage. As a political move, this was excellent because it helped get shiatsu recognised in Japan (which was embracing all things western).
Zen Shiatsu is Masunaga’s legacy, a therapy come full circle from ancient roots through western influence and discarding of older theories and back to incorporate those theories again. The great flexibility of shiatsu is in its ability to work in a traditional way using ancient oriental medical theory, while at the same time looking forward and incorporating western anatomy and physiology.
