Professionals In Focus (The Sequel. The Remarkable New Findings. Answering The Critics.)

Neal Robert Smookler

“I

t takes just a few minutes to complete and can be only described as breathtaking”, says Neal Smookler. What Smookler is so enthusiastic about is the concept that the brain can somehow ‘refresh’ itself in much the same way as one would ‘refresh’ a page in your web browser. Inside your head is a physical triggering mechanism that enables the brain to reboot itself as you’d reboot your home computer. I want to be very clear; it’s not there by accident. You’re hard wired by Mother Nature that way. “I was trained fifteen years ago to know where the mechanism is located, and exactly how to activate it.” There is an adulation you hear in Smookler’s voice for the profession he so adores — Alphabiotics, that onomatopoetically constructed word that reflects the actual process. “I’m more excited today — as the message is now pregnant with possibility. It’s a message that I adore with all my heart and soul (as it’s a bit of my soul.) It demonstrates not only a Virgil Chrane’s brilliance and insight, but God’s loving kindness.” If words like adoration and love seem a bit strange in discussing one’s profession, we need only take a few steps back to understand. Smookler has spent the better part of the last decade-and-a-half helping Dr. Virgil Chrane bring forth a remarkable new profession. Smookler’s work is cutting edge and old fashioned. Profound, yet essentially simple. Complete and still evolving. This is the dichotomy Alphabiotics presents upon even the most casual of observation. Alphabiotics is not widely known by virtue of its radical simplicity. The core of the process continues to elude definition. Many have studied it, but no one has managed to pin down it’s remarkable essence. As long as the world adores complexity and revels in figuring out the secrets of the universe, this message will be dismissed as pedestrian by many and only heard by a few. “It’s also incredibly easy to do — as there are no rigid protocols nor special rules to follow. That’s a refreshing new wrinkle for most”, quips Smookler. “I once overheard an acquaintance state that the entire profession is nothing more than another ‘California fad’. To this very day that observation befuddles me. I see that more and more people are ‘waking up’. Thirty years ago the number one bestsellers in bookstores were cookbooks. Today, it’s books about significance and meaning.” When the cover story of the May 7, 2001 Newsweek is ‘God And

4 Spirit of Change | FALL 2008

The Brain. How We’re Wired For Spirituality’ — we can be relatively certain the phenomenon isn’t just another burgeoning fad. This is a message that comes out of a mystery. But there’s no need to flower up the mystery — it’s a mystery that works. So I’ll state the core message to those who will hear it. Alphabiotics is a simple way to liberate volumes of hidden resource in order to address any limitation. The Alphabiotic method triggers a fundamental shift which results in an major and massive release of unconscious cumulative shock — resolving vastly complex challenges with stunning simplicity. My first time. A huge grin spreads ear to ear as Smookler recalls a symposium he attended almost two decades ago. Before breaking, the instructor invited anyone who wanted the experience of the ‘refresh’; the opportunity to receive just that.” Oh, well. When in Rome. “I lay down while nervously awaiting my turn, all the while trying not to knock over the bowls of hard candy and pitchers of ice water. (We were in a hotel conference room). Then, without so much as an explanation, the instructor performed the ‘refresh’. No warning. No preparation. No primer. It was very brief, so brief in fact that I wasn’t sure what to make of it.” “I got up and I was, uh ... humming. Not musically mind you. Vibrationally. I was literally resonating at a different frequency — what I can only describe as an insulated cocoon of warmth, openness and peace. It was as if the heaviness of my life lifted. My body literally unwound from the ‘corkscrew’ of tension it had been in. I seemed to shift out of ‘brown out’, no longer waiting for the proverbial second shoe to drop. I seemed to go from a state of absolute chaos to one of order. I actually felt as if I was growing younger — that was cool.” “I felt like my brain, my entire body had been somehow re-set, providing me with a clean slate; kind of like shaking up a snow-globe that then re-settles even prettier. Boy, it was a lovely experience; like nothing I had ever known. “This is different. This is different. This is different. That’s all I could think. I couldn’t wrap my educated mind around the depth of what had just transpired.” “It’s peerless. No-one else was doing this type of work — that was such a revelation.” (A statement that, in the years ahead would become painfully apparent for me personally). A world first. In 1971 Dr. Chrane made history. With a simple hands-on process he was able to restore whole-brain function. He found that a specific movement of the head could do more good for a person in ninety seconds than just about any other single act. His discovery has to rank amongst the most important of this century. Quite a statement, I know. Through his breakthrough he knowingly gave the world a gift beyond measure. He unknowingly gave me, but all my life.” A colloquial metaphor. “It’s based upon the same fundamental principle as rebooting a computer”, explains Smookler. With the participant lying face up on a specially designed table, a trained facilitator (alphabioticist) performs a unique movement of the head, alternately from each side of the table (to address both hemispheres). Gently, the participant receives a high level, but non-threatening (that’s key) sensory input. Think metaphorically along the lines of hitting a re-set button. (“It sounds dramatic, but there aren’t any jolts or zings as there are no machines or instruments used. It’s really quite pleasant and refreshing and not the least bit scary”). Using sophisticated equipment, the preliminary research by Dr. Marc VanCraeyenest suggests this sensory input appears as a *piezo-electric potential (a conceptual spark) which originates near the corpus callosum (the thick bundle of nerve fibers located between and connecting the two halves of the brain). We know that this sensory communication immediately results in an electric potential — first in the corpus collosum which then spreads

Neal Robert Smookler To r c h b e a r e r F o r A P i o n e e r i n g N e w F i e l d . throughout the brain into the neocortex (what anthropologists refer to as the higher human or spiritual brain). *In physics, a piezo-electric potential is a current which flows as the result of an applied pressure (the alphabiotic method) on a crystalline structure (conjectured to be the pituitary gland or the corpus callosum). In theory, the pressure causes the crystalline structure to deform, resulting in a voltage (the conceptual spark). In mere nanoseconds, a web of neurons begins to fire (Nancy Sciore — a massage therapist, says it this way: ‘my whole body and brain buzz as if the synapses are firing away and resetting themselves’) spreading the potential throughout both hemispheres causing the brain to perform a systems check — in much the same way that a computer defragments and resets itself back to its original functional condition. “And no, you don’t lose memory, personality etc. You’re still you — just a more authentic version. It’s kind of like returning home.” “The concept of refreshing the brain is really for educational purposes”, explains Smookler. “The method is a communication protocol that encourages stress neutralization. In this new-found state of ease the brain, of it’s own accord, automatically self-reboots. I don’t want to suggest the alphabiotic process of and by itself reboots or refreshes the brain — because only the wisdom of the body can do that.” “The process gently facilitates the ‘refresh’. It’s really an extraordinarily positive and invigorating communication that encourages the wisdom of the body to ‘override’ the daily ‘emergency stand-by’ mode, kind of like an ‘all clear’ signal. The internalized stress response (fight or flight) which is really a very low level state of alarm or shock that most adults (and children) are braced in — is neutralized and released. Instantly.” “Now, this is not the stereotypical TV medical, emergency-room representation of shock. It’s not that theatrical. This is non-focal and quite subtle. Micro (emotional) life shock, if you will. Basically, a state of stress morphs into a state of shock. When sleep is no longer rejuvenating; that’s a sure sign you’re in shock. Understanding that stress not dealt with turns into shock — is so big.” “The drain of power from our system is stunning, as the wisdom of the body is swiftly diverted to address the shock. It just hemorrhages — but instead of blood, you’re expending intelligent, information-exchanging energy; a devastating misappropriation of essentia. “As long as this goes unchecked other priorities such as healing, thinking, joy (fill in your own challenge here) — are all egregiously neglected as they become relegated to ‘back-burner’ status. The end result; a spectrum of malfunction, breakdown and discord. I hope you can fathom the heart of what I am saying — as it’s considerable.” According to William Emerson, PhD, the majority of Americans are operating in varying degrees of shock. “If you saw the movie ‘Ray’ (The Life of Ray Charles) starring Jamie Foxx — the beginning of the movie is a perfect example of this very concept.” Dr. Ryke Hamer, a German physician, believes the true cause of all disease, including cancer, is an unanticipated biological shock trauma. This shock conflict triggers the body to turn on a specific emergency program. Dr. Hamer asserts that cancer is not cured by drugs, natural foods or a healthy lifestyle. The ill person needs to turn off the shock-conflict. “I personally disagree that all disease is ever caused by one thing. But most will agree that this low level state of shock that adults (and children) function within results in diminished potential — read that, limitation.” “What I believe the alphabiotic method is accomplishing — is bringing a person out of shock by lifting the consciousness up from the lower reptilian brain stem (an emergency ‘override’) to the more highly evolved neocortex (a safety ‘override’.)”

“This is a proven way to stop today’s debilitating stress from needlessly draining your system of it’s precious energy. The élan vital. A metaphoric mind | body defibrillation (jump-start) if you will.” What’s so striking is that the ‘refresh’ looks like a simple stimulus-response mechanism, but there’s an added bonus as the it carries within it the potential of touching an ineffable core within you. A way to re-establish a genuine connection to Source. (Electro-encephalographic studies have shown the ‘refresh’ to shift brain waves into the delta frequencies; some say delta is our connection to the Infinite.) “In fact, after the ‘refresh’ you are also in an alpha brain wave (the relaxation response) which is our natural idling frequency.” According to most mainstream scientific studies — alpha can only be maintained with eyes closed, after the ‘refresh’ alpha is present with eyes wide open. It’s a unique state which can last for days. You are literally utilizing energy and resources more efficiently. That’s so big as energy previously diverted towards protectionism is refocused back in. In recent years there have emerged various critical articles on the internet about Alphabiotics. “I think when anything new and different comes on the scene; it tends to meet with resistance.” Anyway, these articles generally fall into two categories. First are the skeptics. Skepticism as a form of logic was disproved centuries ago by philosophers like Plato and Socrates. The flaw in all skeptical critique is that skepticism is based upon a premise of disbelief. In other words they set about to prove their position of disbelief is correct. Why not start with the premise (like a scientist would) that you don’t know and use reason to find the truth? Thankfully, we’re in good company (naturopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture and chiropractic — just to name a few, are all unfairly included on these skeptic Web sites as well). You’ll note that skeptics never actually try any of these. I’m a firm advocate that real knowing can only come through first-hand experience and not by reading online fodder. It’s seems so silly to me. One simply mentions the word spirituality or higher consciousness and some people immediately assume a secret society, cult or worse. Second are news articles that imply that Alphabiotics is harmful. The simple reality here is that all negative press about Alphabiotics refer to people who aren’t certified to provide Alphabiotics. Like an un-trained medical doctor these people endanger the public and give the rest of the profession a bad name. No one has ever been harmed by a properly trained (it takes five to seven years to become proficient) and certified Alphabioticist. Bottom line. Research and ask questions. Follow your intuition. If you are not comfortable with someone or something — move away from that. I’ve provided the Alphabiotic method well over eighty thousand times. In fact, last winter I was rebooting my seventy-nine year old dad who, at the time, had three (that’s not a misprint) fractures in his head — without a problem. That’s how benign it is when properly provided. A final thought. One thing that can be absolutely said is — It’s here to help. So, I’ll repeat the core message one more time to those who will hear it; a message that sits as comfortably in holistic circles as it does in the corporate world ... this is a simple way to unleash volumes of hidden resource in order to address any challenge or limitation. Smookler’s work has been featured on WBZ, WZBC & WATD. Today, he lives in the Hopkinton countryside while spending his professional time in Wellesley, Massachusetts — The Center for The New England Alphabiotic Association. He is entering his sixteenth year as an advocate of this ‘California fad’ that has since spread to continents across the globe. (781) 237-2370.

uring the Great Depression, the Works Project Administration (WPA) launched a remarkable public education campaign tapping the nation’s unemployed artists to create art deco posters promoting safety, good health, conservation of natural resources, community involvement and other American values. “Cellar ceilings must be flame retarded. Keep cellars clear.” “Don’t kill our wild life.” “Save your eyes. Use your goggles.” “Discover Puerto Rico…where the Americas meet.” At a time when Americans faced monumental economic, environmental and moral challenges — rivaling our current tinderbox of global crises — our government foresaw the wisdom in educating its citizens collectively to raise the country above its challenges. While wearing safety goggles would not single-handedly bring an end to the Depression, it was a small step towards ensuring that one less family might lose its wage earner through occupational injury. It was a way to pull the country together through a common cause. We face no less dire circumstances at our 2008 crossroads. Terrorism, environmental devastation, food and water shortages, health epidemics, lack of access to healthcare and a national energy crisis are challenges that can only be solved by collective effort on the part of all citizens, not legislators moving at the speed of bureaucracy. It is widely believed that higher education is the key to success and mobility for Americans, yet our lack of general public education is astounding. Imagine what we can accomplish when we have the facts and information we need to make smart choices about energy use, taking care of our health and creating strong families and communities. There are hopeful signs this education is beginning to happen. On TV and in magazines and newspapers, we are seeing advertisements and articles educating people about energy conservation and how important the little things are like turning off lights, shutting off idling cars and shopping with reusable bags instead of disposable plastics. Like using safety goggles, shutting off lights won’t stop global warming, but it’s a step in the right direction. Then we need to see these messages and read the same energy saving tips over and over again before we can begin to change our ways of thinking and doing things. The giant spike in fuel prices has finally put Americans’ feet to the fire to wake up and become aware of our problem of energy waste and addiction. We’ve been sleeping for 30 years, since Jimmy Carter left office and his solar panels on the White House roof and energy conservation initiatives were dismantled. If we had heeded his vision of making America energy independent by pursuing alternative energy research and efficiency in the 1970’s, we would be up and running with our own advanced energy technologies at this time. We would have no need to meddle in Middle East affairs for their oil. Instead of spending $500 billion over five years on the Iraq war and $15 billion during the same period on PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief), we could have reversed those numbers and spent $500 billion to eradicate AIDS and malaria (and maybe even hunger, too!) from the planet, and given just $15 billion over for defense. And we would have contributed something priceless to humanity. Let’s not make the same mistakes we made 30 years ago with only our selfish, shortsighted goals in mind. Educating our citizens about the problem and the solutions is critical to our success; American energy policy must be founded on conservation and alternative energy sources, not deepening our dependence on fossil fuels by drilling in new locations, risking further environmental damage to our fragile ecosystems. We need to learn what we can do now to reduce our use, and use what we have more efficiently, and we need to hold our lawmakers accountable. At www.wecansolvetheclimatecrisis.com, a project of The Alliance for Climate

American energy policy must be founded on conservation and alternative energy sources, not deepening our dependence on fossil fuels by drilling in new locations. Protection founded by Al Gore, the former vice president testifies that “…there are no technical or material impediments to achieving the goal of 100% clean electricity within ten years. The only thing missing is political will.” Three decades of research time lost right when we need it the most means we will need to reduce our consumption until our energy technology catches up. High fuel prices are “helping” us think creatively about efficiency. For instance, commercial planes are now conserving fuel using a graduated step approach during landing. Consumers are aware of buying Energy Star energy-efficient appliances. We are paying a higher price now for things we should have paid attention to long ago by not considering what it means to be on a crowded planet with rising demands, dwindling natural resources and increasing climate change. Will the hope and ingenuity of the American spirit rise to this new challenge in our lives? Time will tell. Carol Bedrosian is the publisher and editor of Spirit of Change Magazine.

ver the past 30 years as an author, speaker, teacher and surgeon, Bernie Siegel, MD has touched thousands of lives all over the planet with healing. With the emergence of his Exceptional Cancer Patients (ECaP) therapy programs in the late 70’s, Bernie was among the first medical professionals to talk about patient empowerment and our abilities for self-healing and peaceful dying. Officially “retired from surgery but not from counseling people, teaching and lecturing,” Bernie is currently a best-selling author (10 books) and an enthusiastic artist. A book of survivor stories, Faith, Hope & Healing, is scheduled for 2009. Bernie is the keynote presenter at the 2008 Natural Living Expo September 27 in Sturbridge, MA.

Carol Bedrosian: I know from reading your books and hearing you speak that you are an excellent storyteller! Both from life experience and your medical practice, you have a seemingly endless supply of stories and parables you tell that make it easy for people to understand what holistic medicine is about. When did you discover storytelling? Bernie Siegel: What I learned was this: when you get up before a scientific audience and you present as a physician trying to convince people that something is useful as a form of therapy, you get into arguments about statistics, validity, etc. I also learned that if you got up and told a story, it didn’t threaten the audience. So, when one of my patients did well, I discovered they always had a story to tell me about what went on in their life. There was always something behind it. Through my patients’ stories, I saw myself shift from beliefs to experience in my practice. But doctors are looking for evidence, for information. As Paul Young points out, when you go around saying, “I can’t believe that,” or “This is what I believe,” you close your mind. But if you say, “Let me see what I experience…” Carol Bedrosian: Your practices and ideas haven’t always jived with the mainstream medical community. Did you find many restrictions or challenges to your way of practicing over the years? Bernie Siegel: No. Number one, I had a very good reputation as a surgeon. It was more likely people would say, “He’s nuts,” rather than, “He’s trying to get away with something.” But what happened was that people thought my ideas were nuts, but then they realized that the patients were doing better, so it’s good. The nurses are the ones who always supported me, even something as simple as music in the operating room. continues on page 12 www.spiritofchange.org

FALL 2008|Spirit of Change 11

The Art of Self-Induced Healing: An interview with Bernie Siegel continued from page 9 Carol Bedrosian: Is music standard in operating rooms now? Bernie Siegel: Oh yeah. Most of them now incorporate music, pleasant aromas — it’s the environment you’re creating. Most doctors would initially say, “No,” to these changes, but they hadn’t lived the disease. There’s a physician I know who calls doctors “the tourists” and “the natives.” The natives know the experience of the disease, and the tourists are treating the diagnosis and not the person and their experience. There are many more doctors now who have had cancer — or their spouses have had cancer — and they write books saying, “Uh oh, this is different.” I have books by oncologists saying, “I want to apologize to Dr. Siegel. I thought he was nuts.” Carol Bedrosian: If you’re seeing this shift in the medical community, why do we still have such a reliance on pharmaceuticals and surgery as our main forms of healthcare? Bernie Siegel: I think the shift is beginning to happen but it is literally 30 years behind what it ought to be because you have to shift the thinking in order to do the research and document even simple things, such as loneliness affecting genes that control the immune system. Or that laughter helps cancer patients live longer. But you have to get to a point where somebody will say, “We’ll fund that study.” As we begin doing that more, I think we’ll begin to see that what we need to communicate with are the genes, so there will still be a pharmaceutical industry, but it will be a healthier one because it will be mimicking a natural product. In other words, when you’re happy, when you’re loving, what’s happening in your body? That’s what the future will be. How do we put a chemical in, a protein molecule, that says to your genes, “I’m happy, I’m loving. So, ya’ know, heal me. I like living.”

Carol Bedrosian: What is our potential to use self-healing to cure sickness and disease? Bernie Siegel: The wonderful term that Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn uses in his book Cancer Ward [1968 novel] is part of what woke me up. The symbol of a butterfly is transformation and that’s almost an unconscious thing with people because of the caterpillar dissolving away and, boom, we get a butterfly, though he has to struggle to get out and survive. But Solzhenitsyn has a man sitting in the ward and one of them says, “I was looking in the medical library and it says there are cases of self-induced healing.” Then a rainbow-colored butterfly flutters out of the great open book and they all held up their cheeks and foreheads for a healing touch. And I thought...ahhh…self-induced healing. Think about it. What do we call these things? Spontaneous remissions, miracles. When somebody has a spontaneous remission or a miracle, you don’t ask, “What did you do? How did you manage that?” If we had labeled those cases self-induced healing a hundred years ago, we may have studied them and said, “Okay, how come your cancer disappeared, or whatever it is, and you’re alive today?” These patients would have taught us something because there’s what I call survival behavior; in other words, there’s a personality behavior to people who don’t die on schedule and outlive statistics. And that’s what needs to be taught to everyone. You know, Monday mornings we have more heart attacks, strokes, suicides and illnesses. And its very obvious that it has to do with how people feel about their work. When you have meaning in your life and work, going to work isn’t work. It becomes a very different situation.

“There’s what I call survival behavior. There’s a personality behavior to people who don’t die on schedule and outlive statistics. And that’s what needs to be taught to everyone.”

Carol Bedrosian: That’s a pretty revolutionary idea. Bernie Siegel: The problem is that the pharmaceutical industry, in a sense, supports medicine. If you open a medical journal and look at an ad, it basically says, “I was depressed. I went to my physician. He prescribed an anti-depressant. Everything’s wonderful now.” That’s what psychiatrists are being taught now and the ones who care about people are miserable because they’re told not to talk, see them in a month and give them a new prescription. When I look through the New England Journal of Medicine, I don’t remember exactly, but it might be 80% of the pages are pharmaceutical ads. So who’s paying for the journal? Part of them problem is the government. If the government would reward companies for showing that a natural product is beneficial to your health then they might do that research. But, you see, if I spent two million dollars proving that eating a banana every day is good for you, then I’ve wasted two million dollars because I don’t make bananas and I can’t patent them. If the government said, “Spend money showing that something is worthwhile, then we’ll give you a tax reduction,” you will gain something. Another part of the problem is that we’re not exposed to new information in medical school. So again, that’s when the mind gets shut down and you don’t get to see all these other resources. In Switzerland, the MD’s have studied things like naturopathy and homeopathy because it’s part of their curriculum and medical education. They don’t have a closed mind. And that’s what needs to happen. We need to integrate all these things so it’s part of our medical information and education. We’re not really trained to care for people. We’re trained about disease. If it became part of the medical information stream, more physicians would be open-minded to exploring it. The insurance companies are also a big problem. Years ago when I practiced, you filled out a form, you signed your name to it and you mailed it in and they sent you the money. Now with all the electronics and all the rules and regulations and everybody’s checking on every letter and number, it drives doctors and offices crazy trying to make sure you said the right things and classified it as the right disease with the right number of words. Everybody is protecting themselves. 12 Spirit of Change | FALL 2008

Carol Bedrosian: So you think the future of medicine is self-induced healing? Bernie Siegel: Yes, that’s what we’ll be studying because that’s at the genetic level. There’s a very interesting book called The Biology of Belief by a genesis named Bruce Lipton. He said, “Bernie, I agree with you. The gene doesn’t make the decision; it’s the internal environment that triggers the gene. His example is that you want to build a house, so you have to pick a blueprint. The genes are like the blueprint. But what goes on inside? And so the identical twins who don’t get the same experiences every day don’t get the same diseases at the same age all the time.

Carol Bedrosian: Because the internal environment is different. Bernie Siegel: Right, because one twin might be a sweet, submissive little girl who doesn’t ever express anger and the other one’s a devil having a wonderful life. And if you ask an audience who’s going to get breast cancer, they all vote for the good kid. This is not an accident. Again, if you look at people’s personalities you can predict who will get what disease because it affects their genetics. This is about human potential. This is about participation and not the guilt, blame and shame that parents, teachers and religions bestow on us. Parenting is the number one public health issue. You say you want to change things, then bring up every kid loved and you don’t have to worry anymore. If you put a sign up saying smoking is no good for you, that doesn’t stop everybody. But when you say, “I love you,” and then that person learns how to love themselves, they are more likely to say, “I’m not going to poison myself. I’m going to exercise. I’m not going to weigh 300 pounds just to reward myself for what I never got from anybody else,” because addictions are ways to reward yourself and feel good in an unhealthy, sick way. The drugs, the alcohol, the food, they don’t replace it. And you end up killing yourself. Carol Bedrosian: Your medicine is about loving yourself, loving others. Bernie Siegel: If you love yourself — and that doesn’t mean you’re perfect — you don’t have to like yourself or other people but you love them and you love yourself. So when your child feels loved like a divine child, they treat themselves differently. That doesn’t mean you don’t discipline them. I always tell people if you want advice on parenting, get advice on how to raise the puppy and go and raise your kids that way. Carol Bedrosian is publisher and editor of Spirit of Change Magazine and co-producer of the Natural Living Expo. See page 10 for free ticket information on Bernie’s talk at the expo.

ot since the turbulent 1960’s has the nation’s interest in politics been so intense. I’ve lost count of how many inquiries I’ve had regarding the Presidential candidates or my opinion about this fall’s election. Rarely in our country’s history has there been such a profound desire for change. In my mind there is no doubt about the November election. Here’s the scoop. In a moment of delicious cosmic synchronicity, on Election Day revolutionary Uranus forms an exact opposition to Saturn, preserver of the status quo. There could not be a more perfect harbinger of that prominently featured campaign slogan, “change.” By itself the alignment suggests changing fortunes for the incumbent political party but as is usually the case, the aspect does not occur in a vacuum nor does it guarantee a result. We all need to get out and vote! Also on Election Day, November 4, 2008, feisty Mars forms a worrisome square with nebulous Neptune, raising the likelihood of skullduggery and election vote tampering. However, I do not think this square will be enough to alter the outcome but as always, time will tell. Idealistic Neptune is passing through Aquarius, the sign that hosted the Moon when independence was declared on July 4, 1776. The community oriented, freedom loving and tolerant Aquarius Moon symbolizes the “common man” in our country’s horoscope. Neptune can function either as an agent of disappointment and betrayal or as a redeeming force. Since late 1998 when Neptune entered Aquarius, several key election results have been disputed. Many experts believe the people’s will was subverted by the Supreme Court’s 2000 decision stopping the Florida recount and effectively handing the election to George Bush. The overriding push this fall is progressive; a turn away from the existing order. These trends indicate the Democratic party’s candidate will gain the presidency. Let’s hope the new administration serves the needs of the people and the planet and her imbalances better than the crew soon exiting the White House. Ultimately it is the people who must demand competent, honest and transparent government. The paradoxical Saturn/Uranus opposition asks each of us to carefully consider values and beliefs. Are the commitments we make, things we work for and the rules we live by worth sacrificing our principles? Are these same rules and regulations equally applied to all? Can we follow them? The answers to these questions may require that adjustments be made in our own personal lives. This is the season to revamp relationships, thinking, lifestyles and goals. This is also a fine time to make a difference.

September 2008 On the 1st of the month the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars form a stellium in stylish Libra. Design projects and wardrobe additions have lasting impact. The noon hour is an especially gracious social occasion. Some people find it hard to make up their minds as their concern for others causes hesitation and/ or co-dependent behavior. Sensibilities soon take a more pragmatic turn due to the Sun’s midweek conjunction with Saturn, the pairing emphasizing practical concerns as well as duty and loyalty. Thursday the 4th is an up tempo day. A solar trine to Jupiter infuses work and meetings with an air of hopeful expectancy. Positive lunar trends give Sept 22 - Oct 21 emotional strength. Whatever you believe in, be true to your convictions. Faith will be rewarded. The night of Saturday the 6th features an excellent aspect between the Scorpio Moon and Venus. It is party time! Enjoy good food and friends or cozy up with special someone. Life is more frenetic from the 7th through the 9th. Mars, Mercury and Venus form a series of conjunctions while in square to Jupiter. Expectations are inflated. Expenses may quickly mount. Fortunately, Jupiter’s turn to direct motion on Monday the 8th finds the giant planet trine to ringed Saturn. continued on page 17

Starspeak continued from page 14

Sharon R. Doolittle DVM Holistic Animal Healthcare

Pluto resumes forward motion just before midnight. Even as some minds give in to extremism and hyperbole, more experienced souls sound thoughtful, reasoned voices. Passions run hot throughout the week. Venus and Mars steamily unite on Thursday, the night of the 11th. Look before you leap into the romantic arena. The Sun’s Friday night opposition to unpredictable Uranus punctuates a week of surprises, Be ready for strange twists, unexpected turns and outrageous behavior that same evening. The weekend of the 13th and 14th is lively, fueled in no small measure by the waxing harvest Moon. Things pick up Saturday afternoon and proceed to gather momentum until early Monday morning. The Moon is exactly full in Pisces at 5:13am on Monday the 15th followed by a shortlived letdown. Visionary thinking and inspired actions are well supported as Venus, Mercury and Mars trine Neptune from the 17th through the 21st. Motives may be questioned Saturday night the 20th but those who give unselfishly or serve a higher calling are sure to feel immensely gratified this week. When the Sun enters Libra on Monday the 22nd, fall is officially here! The autumnal equinox also features a warming sextile between loving Venus and Pluto. Don’t underestimate the healing power of love. Mercury begins the third and final retrograde of the year during Wednesday’s early morning hours. Creative and intellectual possibilities are off the charts this week as the winged messenger forms a trine to mysterious Neptune. Pay heed to both your dreams and favorite muse! The Libra new Moon of Monday the 29th signals it’s time to take a seriously pro-active approach to life’s many challenges.

Chilly winds may set leaves to dancing but hearts are warm and passionate the night of the 1st. Join with partners to strategize while the Scorpio Moon conjuncts Venus, and Mars forms a powerful trine with perceptive Pluto. Feelings are unusually strong now, as are the spirit of cooperation and the will to get things done. A weekend getaway has great appeal over the 4th and 5th. Minds and feet are prone to wander off the beaten path. Because the Sun and Mercury square Jupiter on the 6th, this is a good week for travel and learning. As with most hard aspects to effusive Jupiter, wisdom dictates Oct 22 - Nov 20 restraint. New friendships may be struck or a romantic flame lit late in the week. On Friday the 10th Venus forms a “love at first sight” trine to Uranus. This playful aspect may set hearts to fluttering, but be forewarned, the goddess of love makes a disappointing square to Neptune the following day. Hearts and cash reserves are vulnerable to loss so do your homework before making any commitments. On the 11th, Saturday night’s social scene proves fortuitous. The Aries full Moon is exact at 4:02 the afternoon of Tuesday the 14th. Both luminaries are in fine aspect with magical Neptune. The day brings opportunities to tap into the deepest layers of the imagination. Emotions are high but thanks to Neptune, full Moon meditations go swimmingly well. With the Sun in the sign of relationships, be ready to work with partners. Wednesday the 15th sees a seismic shift on the heels of the dramatic full Moon in Aries. By now the Moon is in calm, steady Taurus. Mercury turns direct during the afternoon. Second thoughts are likely later in the week. It is okay to change your mind but expect to catch some flak from a disappointed associate. The first half of Saturday the 18th finds some people feeling restless. The Gemini Moon tests both Saturn and Uranus. The two celestial heavyweights are nearing the previously mentioned Election Day opposition and the faster moving Moon acts as a trigger. Here’s the chance to flex your spiritual muscles. Breathe deeply if you find yourself under stress. Rise above petty jealousies and ride the afternoon’s unpredictable winds of change with grace. Calming trends take hold Saturday afternoon and continue through Monday the 20th. Give yourself extra time to get ready the morning of the 21st. After a somewhat frustrating day, the Sun enters Scorpio the night of Wednesday the 22nd. Plan to make progress on the job from the 23rd through the 24th. Friday evening is bubbly but the night quickly runs out of steam. Early to bed! Be on good behavior the night of the 25th. A tough square between the Moon and Pluto as well as another square between Mercury and Jupiter can make interactions an adventure. Use tact. Avoid hyperbole or badgering a friend. Things take a turn for the better Sunday afternoon when the Moon engages loving Venus. Even though it is the last day before the new Moon, Monday the 27th sees the new week off to a rousing start. Mars is harmoniously aligned with Jupiter, a great aspect for politicians, cheerleaders and pioneers! Take the lead and follow your heart. Tuesday evening’s Scorpio new Moon sets the stage for a spirited two weeks. The last days of October feature a string of fruitful aspects. Individual efforts and group activities move steadily along, with one exception. On Thursday the 30th the Moon is void-of-course until sundown. Use this day to review, consolidate and fine tune ongoing projects. Halloween festivities could go later into the night than expected, the Moon and Venus urging everyone to have a safe and fun time.

18 Spirit of Change|FALL 2008

On Saturday morning the 1st ringing phones or other surprises will jolt some sleepyheaded people awake. More peaceful trends are in effect after noon Nov 21 - Dec 20 and on into the night. Standard Time begins at 2am Sunday so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to turn your clocks back one hour before going to sleep. Visionary Neptune resumes forward motion at nearly the same time. Dream on! Venus, jauntily skipping through Sagittarius, engages the destabilizing Saturn/ Uranus opposition Monday morning, the 3rd. More than one fragile relationship may shatter around this time. Election hoopla reaches new heights Monday evening. In some respects Election Day is surprisingly mellow, thanks to the void-of-course Capricorn Moon. First reports will leave some people scratching their heads in disbelief as the Aquarius Moon squares rational Mercury Tuesday evening. The first quarter Moon the night of the 5th reminds us of the costs and how much work there is to do to follow our destiny. More fluid and forward-looking trends build in from the 7th through the 10th. On Monday the 10th the Scorpio Sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy aspects with both Jupiter and Uranus symbolize a rebirth for many individuals and institutions. High hopes are justified. Tuesday morning finds the Sun in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;can doâ&#x20AC;? sextile to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Realistâ&#x20AC;? Saturn while Venus joins forces with Pluto that night. There is great strength in numbers. Coordinate your efforts with others and gains may be remarkable. Romantic unions tend to be explosively passionate. Wednesday the 12th just races by. One only needs to look to the eastern sky after sunset to know why. The full Moon is exact on Thursday the 13th at 1:17am. Wow! What a powerful chart. The Sun, flanked by Mercury and Mars is, as is usually the case, opposite the Taurus Moon. However, both lights are square to Neptune. This T-square fosters fantasy, escapism and brilliant humanitarian impulses. Financial worries can also weigh on many hearts and family budgets. There is a major stroke of good fortune at hand. Fortunately, protective Jupiter sextiles Uranus on Thursday, providing ample measures of faith, hope and a dash of ingenuity. With the Saturn/Uranus opposition still very close and Venus a scant degree away from Pluto, this is one of the most charged full Moon charts in some time. The changes we must face are long overdue. If mankind is to survive, we as global citizens on an evershrinking planet cannot continue to squander the resources of the Earth while wantonly despoiling the environment. The road ahead

will demand sacrifices but at least there is the promise of technological breakthroughs as well as evolving spiritual consciousness leading mankind on to sustainable ground. It will take a few days for the dust to settle. Friday the 14th is a tense day. Remind yourself to breathe deeply. Exhale all that stress. We catch our wind over the weekend. Mercury makes nice with Jupiter and Saturn. Friendly gatherings provide laughter and fun, a soothing balm for any soul. Unfortunately Monday the 17th ushers in a two-day gloomy spell. Mercury is at odds with foggy Neptune, fostering confusion and some despair. There isn’t much improvement until after Wednesday afternoon’s last quarter Moon. That night the Moon trines Pluto and spirits feel reborn. Friday the 21st brings two notable events. First, Jupiter trines Saturn, a fine alignment that favors organizing, clear thinking and facing important decisions. Do your best to tie up loose ends. Later in the day the Sun enters Sagittarius, freeing everyone for a lighthearted evening. Over the weekend the social scene turns lively. For many, this is the time to get together with friends before departing later in the week for the Thanksgiving holiday. If possible, travel or shop early on Monday or Tuesday. Energy happens to be in short supply on Wednesday the 26th. Thanksgiving Day brings a new Moon in Sagittarius, lovely for its astrological significance because Sagittarius is the sign of abundance and faith. In succession, the Moon passes by the Sun, Mercury and Mars. This promises to be a most energetic and pleasurable holiday! A Friday sextile between Venus and Uranus guarantees moods will be gregarious as well as flirtatious. Venus also trines Saturn Saturday night so what begins coyly may quickly grow into a serious “thing.” The month concludes on a joyful note. Venus is about to overtake jolly Jupiter, a good omen for returning travelers and incurable romantics. Enjoy!

Have we passed the point where humanity is doomed? James Hansen, the chief climatologist for NASA, is saying we need to reduce CO2 levels fast; they are already too high. Other countries are taking action, but Bush (and McCain) are procrastinating. Is it already too late?

ohn McCain goes to a Danish wind turbine facility to give a speech about global warming. He said a few reasonable things: wind power, let’s bring America closer to energy independence, our economy depends on clean and affordable alternatives to fossil fuels. Some of his language is so nice, and it’s sort of like, you know, maybe the free market will fix this problem. Let me put a parallel analogy, a metaphor, out here. If your house was on fire and somebody came along and said, “You know, if we provided enough of an incentive to private corporations, they could come in and start private forprofit fire departments, we might be able to put this fire out.” It’s an imperfect metaphor, but here’s the bottom line. “Scientists,” now this is David Adam writing in The Guardian, “Scientists at the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii say that CO2 levels in the atmosphere now stand at 387 parts per million.” This is up 40% since the Industrial Revolution. It’s the highest in 650,000 years. From 1970 to 2000, the average concentration of carbon dioxide was rising at the rate of 1.5 parts per million per year, but since 2000 it has been rising at 2.1 parts per million per year. What does all that mean? James Hansen, the chief climatologist for NASA, the guy who really gets all this stuff, has laid this out in a very, very stark report that was issued just last week, and that Bill McKibben is writing about over at commondreams.org. You can read his piece called “Civilization’s Last Chance.” And Bill McKibben, who, you know, has been an activist in this arena and others for many, many years, a great guy, he says, “We have a new number that we have to worry about and direct our attention to. That new number is 350.” Now, why 350 if, right now the world is at 387 parts per million of carbon dioxide? Why 350? Well this is what James Hansen wrote. This is quoting from a scientific paper by NASA’s chief climatologist: “If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced from its current 385 ppm to at most 350 ppm.” He suggests that there are six irreversible tipping points that we hit when we go above 350 parts per million, where we are right now, by the way. continued on page 23

We Are Proud To Announce The Opening Of Our New Branch in Acton! We started The Massage School 7 years ago with a simple idea - wouldn't it be great to have a massage school that

taught modern massage technique, with a hands on approach to learning, at an affordable price, and with a simple, practical, and flexible class schedule. Now all these years later we are happy to be opening our second branch, this time in Acton, Massachusetts. Our first class will begin October 6th. This will be a great time to start your massage education, as it will be the last chance to become a licensed massage therapist in Massachusetts with a 500 hour certification program. The programs starting after this fall will be significantly longer. Also, we will be offering a $2,000.00 scholarship to all students who enroll in our first class in Acton! Whether you are considering massage therapy as an entry to the larger world of rehabilitative medicine, wellness, or just as an end in itself, please consider our common sense and affordable professional certification program. To obtain more information you can call us at 978-929-9900, visit our comprehensive web site at www.TheMassageSchool.org, or email us at info@TheMassageSchool.org

Cultural Crossroads continued from page 20 There’s news reports out that methane, which is actually a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, is dramatically starting to surge in our hemisphere. Why? Because huge patches of permafrost, particularly in the northern parts of Russia — Siberia — the Siberian permafrost as well as the Alaskan permafrost and northern Canadian permafrost are melting. And these are in many cases, locked up vegetation that has been frozen for 5, 10, 15, 20, 50, 100,000 years. It’s melting and rotting and releasing methane from the rotting process into the atmosphere. This speeds up the warming. On top of that you’ve got the polar ice caps that used to reflect 80% of the sunlight that hit them because they were white, now melting and being replaced by blue water which absorbs 80% of the sunlight. This is another one of those tipping points. Rajendra Pachauri, who accepted the Nobel Prize on behalf of the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control] said, “If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment.” As Bill McKibben writes, “If we did everything right, Hansen says we could see carbon emissions start to fall fairly rapidly...We might stop just short of some of those tipping points, like the Road Runner screeching to a halt at the very edge of the cliff. More likely, though,” McKibben says, “we’re Wylie Coyote.” You know, “whoa!” looking down, because if we really want to make this change, what we have to do, says McKibben, “is make car factories turn out efficient hybrids next year, just the way U.S. automakers made them turn out tanks in six months at the start of World War II.” That’s the kind of action that is going to be necessary. Well, John McCain says, “Let’s bring the free market in here and maybe we could do something about this by 2050.” When he’s long dead, many of us will be long dead. Well, many of us older farts, anyway. But the generation of people being born now and young people now, they will still be around, but the planet will no longer be hospitable to life, to us. At the same time the National Geographic organization did a survey on the environmental impact of consumer habits, Mary Shaw was writing about this at commondreams.org comparing lifestyles in fourteen countries. Who are actually doing the most, and the least, to clean up this global warming mess? They looked at Brazil, India, China, Mexico, Hungary, Russia, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, Spain, Japan, France, Canada and the US. And who is dead last? Us, the US.

And John McCain’s solution? He says that we should set a goal that by 2050 the country will reduce carbon emissions. George Bush is saying, “Well, let’s start and plan for 2025.” To his credit, John McCain took a swipe at Bush. Here’s Glen Johnson writing in the Associated Press. He “took a swipe at President Bush, who balked at the beginning of his term at signing the Kyoto Protocols. John McCain says, ‘I will not shirk the mantle of leadership that the United States bears. I will not permit eight long years to pass without serious action on serious challenges. I will not accept the same dead end of failed diplomacy that claimed Kyoto. The United States will lead and will lead with a different approach — an approach that speaks to the interests and obligations of every nation.” But again, his remedy is the so-called free market, and letting profit drive the motive to fix the situation, while other nations around the world are saying, “No, we’re going to do something about this right now, immediately.” It wasn’t the free market that built the atomic bomb. It wasn’t the free market that declared the Manhattan project. It wasn’t the free market that built the Eisenhower highway system all across the United States. It wasn’t, frankly, the free market to put the rail system in the United States in the 1850s, 60s, 70s and 80s. It was the government that built this infrastructure that made it possible for there to be a rail system. It was the government that built the atomic bomb for better or for worse. It was the government that said we’re going to fight World War II, we’re going to stop Hitler and Tojo. When you’re confronted with a serious crisis, you don’t sit back and say, “Well, we’re going to let the free market take care of this.” Because (A), there is no free market. Look at antibiotics right now. Did you realize there’s a bacteria that soldiers are bringing back from Iraq for which there is no cure? That it’s one of the leading causes of amputations among GI’s who have been wounded because it’s multi drug resistant? This is worse than MRSA, the multi drug resistance virus. We need a new antibiotic for it, but it’s not going to be developed by the so-called free market. The drug companies aren’t interested. They can make more money selling cholesterol medication. They want to sell drugs that people need to use throughout their entire lifetime or for years at a time rather than an antibiotic that somebody takes for two weeks. Sometimes you have to say, “We the people, in the interest of solving a major crisis, we the people need to get involved.” Now is the time.

here isn’t another season that offers the abundance of foods, colors, flavors and scents as fall. Nature’s energy begins to slow down in preparation for winter. The warm days and cool nights signal our bodies to adjust to the new season and we naturally begin to crave foods and cooking styles that produce a warming effect. Richer tastes and textures and longer, slower cooked dishes rule this season. Fall’s days are filled with sunshine that highlights the vibrant red, orange and yellow hues of leaves that serve as a backdrop for foods that share the same color palette. Brilliant red apples fill the orchards, rich orange globes dot the pumpkin fields, glorious greens and browns of corn stalks reach upward, and curling vines twist to reveal winter squash in an almost endless variety of colors, textures and sizes. Visit local farmer’s markets to find some varieties of foods that rarely appear on grocery stores’ shelves. Try something new — a variety of a food you’ve never tried before. This column is going to focus on a few seasonal staples: pumpkin and squash. If you’re lucky enough to live near a “pick your own” farm, make it a family outing and scout out the perfect pumpkin or tastiest squash. Whether you do the picking, grow your own or buy produce already picked, the important thing is to have fun as a family preparing a great meal and enjoying it together.

Squash & Pumpkins Squash and pumpkins, like melons and cucumbers, are part of the gourd family. And, they’re among fall’s greatest gifts. They’re packed with nutrition, easy to prepare, extremely versatile and store well. If you’ve only purchased pumpkins in the past to carve jack-o’-lanterns, you’ve been missing out. And, if you’ve tried cooking your jack-o’lantern pumpkin in the past, you’ve probably been disappointed. That variety was developed to grow large and have thin flesh (for carving) with a large seed pocket (cavity for holding light). It was not developed for its eating qualities. Pumpkins grown for food are smaller and often referred to as sugar pumpkins or pie pumpkins. They have much more 24 Spirit of Change|FALL 2008

flesh and better flavor and texture and are excellent for soups and roasting. There’s an heirloom variety called a Cheese pumpkin that’s outstanding for making pies or pumpkin butter. Its skin is smooth with a dark cream color and it resembles a wheel of cheese. Check your local farm stands or farmer’s markets to find different varieties and experiment to discover some new favorites. Some popular varieties of squash to try: Acorn — small, shaped like an acorn with a dark green skin and orange flesh Banana — small, cylindrical shape with an ivory/pink skin and flesh Buttercup — small, turban shaped with green or orange skin and yellow flesh Butternut — larger, elongated pear shape, cream-colored skin and orange flesh Delicata — small, cucumber shaped, green and beige striped skin and yellow flesh Golden acorn — small, shaped like an acorn, bright orange skin and orange flesh Golden nugget — small, looks like a small pumpkin, deep orange skin and flesh Hubbard — very large, odd looking thick bumpy, hard gray/green skin and orange flesh Red Kuri — large, oblong pumpkin shape, orange skin and flesh Spaghetti — medium size, oval shape, yellow skin and cream-colored flesh Sweet dumpling — small, green skin with white streaks and yellow/orange flesh Turban — large, bumpy orange/red skin with green stripes, orange flesh continued on page 26

To select high quality squash and pumpkins, look for ones that feel heavy for their size. If they seem light for their size, they’re likely soft and dry. The color should be rich with a dull looking skin. This means that the squash was picked when it was fully mature. Avoid any that are cracked or show signs of decay. Look for an attached stem (they fall off when stored too long) and firm flesh. Store in a cool, dry place that’s out of direct sunlight. Larger varieties of squash will last all season. Smaller varieties such as acorn will keep for up to three weeks. If you don’t use the whole squash, wrap the unused portion in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Use within a few days. Depending on the variety, preparing pumpkins can be challenging. Fortunately, it’s worth the effort! I keep a small saw (like you’d have in a workshop) in my kitchen for just this purpose. Smaller varieties are much easier, so if you’re not ready to tackle the large varieties, start out with something like the golden acorn or sweet dumpling varieties. They’re easy to bake, sweet and so delicious. Just cut in half, scoop out the seeds, bake and savor the flavor! Large squash are generally prepared two ways. Most people either roast or boil them. I prefer roasting. I like the texture and sweeter flavor. Either way, cut squash into manageable pieces, peel and then cut into chunks. Boil about 15 minutes or until tender. You can then mash or puree them (freeze any extra and use in any recipe calling for pureed pumpkin/squash). To roast, toss the chunks in a little olive oil and bake in a 375-degree oven until softened (time will vary depending on the size of chunks). After cutting into chunks, you can also add them to soups or stews. A fun squash to try is spaghetti squash. I like to cut it in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and bake it, cut side down, until soft. Then, I cool it until I can safely hold it and use a fork to remove the flesh. It comes out in strands that resemble spaghetti. It’s delicious topped with a favorite pasta sauce or tossed in a skillet with some vegan butter and garlic. I’ve even tossed leftover squash in my salads and it tastes great when tossed with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

It’s true that China used the Beijing Olympics as a sustainability showcase, going so far as to dub the event the “Green Olympics.” Through a partnership with the U.S. government and the Maryland-based International Center for Sustainable Development, China gave Beijing a green makeover to make the city a model for net zero pollution, green building and sustainable community development. According to China’s Technology Minister Wan Gang, the Beijing Olympics were expected to generate some 1.2 million tons of carbon dioxide, in large part because of the flying the world’s athletes did to get to and from the games. To offset these potent greenhouse gases, China took a series of measures, Wan says, including planting trees, closing 1,000 small coal mines before and during the games and banning up to a million cars from city streets. Beijing’s Olympic Village, where the Chinese government erected dozens of stadiums and other structures according to rigorous green standards, emerged as quite an example of sustainable community development. The steel-looped Beijing National Stadium, for instance, included a rainwater collection arrangement, a natural ventilation system and a clear roof with inflatable cushions made from ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene), a kind of plastic that increases light and heat penetration. Another example is the “Water Cube,” a spectacular-looking structure that looks like a building made of bubble-wrap. Officially known as the National Aquatics Center, it is completely surrounded with ETFE pillows and is estimated to cut energy use by 30 percent. And when it has finished serving its purpose as an Olympic venue, it has been built to be converted to a shopping area and leisure center with tennis courts, retail outlets, nightclubs and restaurants. All seven main Olympic stadiums were equipped with solar generators capable of outputting 480 kilowatts of energy at any given moment. Ninety percent of the lighting outside the stadiums, as well as the entire hot water supply for the Olympic Village was powered by solar energy. Also, the main stadiums received power from Beijing’s first wind farm. While the Olympic Games only last for two weeks, environmentalists hope the greening of Beijing will indeed continue beyond the summer ‘08. Some proposals include building 14 wastewater treatment facilities to achieve 90 percent treatment rate in Beijing, and extending potable water to the entire city. Also, the municipal government of Beijing has invested in expensive energy-efficient heating and transportation equipment that will greatly improve environmental quality for decades hence. Beijing, where 1,000 new cars roll onto the streets every day, also plans to source clean energy from other parts of China and through the purchase of pollution offsets on a quickly expanding international market.

Neuton’s top of the line battery-powered CE 6.2 mower. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), traditional gas-powered lawnmowers are a public nuisance to say the least. Using one of them for an hour generates as many volatile organic compounds — dangerous airborne pollutants known to exacerbate human respiratory and cardiovascular problems — as driving a typical car for 350 miles. The EPA estimates that, with some 54 million Americans mowing their lawns on a weekly basis, gas lawnmower emissions account for as much as five percent of the nation’s total air pollution. Beyond that, homeowners spill some 17 million gallons of gasoline every year just refueling their lawnmowers. So what’s a green-minded property owner to do about keeping the grass down? Go electric, of course! Electric mowers, which either plug into a wall outlet via a long cord or run on batteries charged up from the grid, create no exhaust emissions and run much cleaner than their gas-powered counterparts. They also need less maintenance, with no spark plugs or belts to worry about, and are easier to use, as they tend to be smaller and come with push-button starters. The icing on the cake might be the fact that electric mowers are cheaper to run, using about as much electricity as an ordinary toaster. Most electric mower owners spend about $5 a year on electricity to keep their grass trimmed just right. The non-profit Electric Power Research Institute reports that replacing half of the 1.3 million or so gas mowers in the U.S. with electric models would save the equivalent amount of emissions of taking two million cars off the road. But going electric has some minor trade-offs. Electric mowers tend to cost up to $150 more than their gas-powered counterparts, and the plug-in varieties can only go 100 feet from the closest outlet without an extension cord. And the cordless models last only 30-60 minutes on a charge, depending on battery size and type, though that’s plenty sufficient for the average lawn (just remember to re-charge it in time for the next mow). And, of course, just because electric mowers don’t consume fossil fuels or spew emissions directly doesn’t mean they are totally green-friendly. Most people derive their household electricity from coal-fired power plants, the dirtiest of all energy sources. Of course, running an electric mower on electricity generated from clean and renewable sources (solar, wind or hydro power) would be the greenest of all possibilities, and those days may be upon us soon. For those ready to take the electric mower plunge, the Greener Choices website, a project of Consumer Reports, gives high marks to Black & Decker’s corded ($230) and cordless ($400) models for their efficiency, reliability and ease-of-use. Corded models from Worx and Homelite (both around $200) also fared well, along with cordless offerings from Craftsman, Homelite, Remington and Neuton ($300-450).

Dear EarthTalk: I’ve heard that there are plans to build a large repository for nuclear waste in Yucca Mountain in Nevada, but that plans have been slow and are very controversial. Where is our nuclear waste kept now and what dangers does it pose? — Miriam Clark, Reno, NV

Plans to store the majority of our nation’s spent nuclear fuel and other highly radioactive waste at a central repository underneath Yucca Mountain in the Nevada desert 80 miles from Las Vegas were first hatched in the mid-1980s. But the project has languished primarily due to opposition from Nevadans who don’t want to import such dangerous materials into their backyard. Critics of the plan also point out that various natural forces such as erosion and earthquakes could render the site unstable and thus unsuitable to store nuclear isotopes that can remain hazardous to humans for hundreds of thousands of years to come. But the Bush administration is keen to jump-start the project and recently submitted a construction license application to develop the facility — which when completed could hold up to 300 million pounds of nuclear waste — with the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). In announcing the filing, Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman said that the facility being proposed can “stand up to any challenge anywhere,” adding that issues of health safety have been a primary concern during the planning process. But the administration has still not submitted a crucial document declaring how protective the facility will be with regard to radiation leakage. Bush’s Environmental Protection Agency concluded that the facility needs to prevent radiation leakage for up to 10,000 years. But a federal judge ruled that to be inadequate and ordered the administration to require protection for up to one million years. The White House argues that the NRC should press on with its review process and that the standard can be settled on later. Currently, without any central repository, nuclear waste generated in the U.S. is stored at or near one of the 121 facilities across the country where it is generated. Nevadans like Democratic Senator Harry Reid, who has doggedly opposed the Yucca Mountain repository, say it makes more sense to leave such waste where it is than to risk transporting it across the nation’s public highways and rail system, during which accidents or even terrorist attacks could expose untold numbers of Americans to radioactivity. But others say that the current system, or lack thereof, leaves Americans at great risk of radioactive exposure. The non-profit Nuclear Information and Resource Service concluded in a 2007 report that tons of radioactive waste were ending up in landfills and in some cases in consumer products, thanks to loopholes in a 2000 federal ban on recycling metal that had been exposed to radioactivity. As with all issues surrounding nuclear technology, where and how to dispose of the wastes is complicated. While some environmental leaders now cautiously support development of more nuclear reactors (which are free of fossil fuels) to help stave off climate change, others remain concerned that the risks to human health and the environment are still too high to go down that road. Whether or not the NRC approves plans for Yucca Mountain won’t resolve the larger debate, of course, but perhaps the greenlighting of other promising alternative energy sources could ultimately make nuclear power unnecessary altogether.

32 Spirit of Change|FALL 2008

Dear Anonymous, Let’s first give you a name. In a recent column a question was submitted by a person named Loveday. I was absolutely charmed by that name and I want you to consider it yours in some way. A nickname perhaps? Adopt it in a way that allows you to cherish the love you feel for yourself and your life. Consider how you can better love yourself. This deepest interior — yourself — is a good place to begin. I would gamble a good sum that this interior space feels weak, perhaps exacerbated because of loneliness or self-judgment about not having a love life or an intimate partnership. You didn’t give me much information about yourself or your space — and none about your bedroom — considered love headquarters by some. You’ve given me little to work with, and in so doing, granted me free license on this topic. Let’s get to the feng shui heart of the matter. Feng shui has to do with the reciprocal influences — you could say relationship — between an environment and its occupants. By any chance have you pushed one side of your bed against a wall? If one side is pushed up against a wall you are having a relationship with the wall. It’s very secure and it is almost always what I see in the bedrooms of the recently divorced, or widowed, heart-broken survivors of some relationship’s ending. That wall is not going anywhere and you can count on it to be faithful. It provides some stability in your possibly traumatized, certainly lonely, predicament. It seems that you are past this stage and just orbiting solo. Position your bed so that there is good and equal access on both sides. And for heaven’s sake, please have something larger than a twin size bed! As an adult, that’s for the monastic life, which you obviously don’t want. Identify love sectors throughout your home. These are located in the right rear position of any room, dwelling or space. Eliminate any lonely one-persononly artwork. Sweeten love sector areas with pink, yellow, white flowers or imagery, perhaps. Lighting (fire!) is great in these areas. Use lamps, please. Avoid overheads or recessed lighting in the bedroom. Lighting should be closer to the level that humans occupy when they are seated. Yes, overhead lighting may in some cases be energy efficient, and it certainly works well in a police line-up, but look for examples like this that industrialize your bedroom and eliminate, soften and warm them up! Activate your dormant Ph.D. in Cozy. Use lamps, fire and light to create and nourish the earth element in your bedroom. Earth is the receptive, grounded, and fertile feature of a nourishing relationship; generated by fire, you’ve nicely incorporated passion. I used to advise people to create a sort of crescendo in these love sectors — furniture or objects that are higher than other features in a room. But I stopped doing that because although people got results, they were inappropriate and short-lived. Crescendo does imply an imminent demise. Clear out clutter, particularly in love sectors. I recently heard someone say clutter represents postponed decisions. I think that’s the best description of stagnant energy I’ve ever heard. When and where clutter begins to accumulate (per the bagua especially) the corresponding life aspect goes into a holding pattern. Unless there are powerful boosts elsewhere in these areas it’s difficult to create or even allow deep and meaningful new life experiences. And if you’d like to shed a few pounds prior to intimacy, get rid of stuff. Throwing things out is a very invigorating diet! In closing, Dear Anonymous Loveday, I hope you can implement some of these suggestions. I’d like to hear from you again in a few months. At that point we can add Phase 2 to this love foundation.

is the pathway that is truly yours to traverse. As you are certainly creating a major life change and a redefinition on many levels, the element here is water. Think flow. But not just water. There is an ancestral implication — a participation, really — in this area. In the olden days we used to do what our families did. We were farmers or merchants or shipbuilders. There was a stream that strongly determined, and even until recent decades, still influenced what we did for a living. Water, movement, flow would be wonderful assists for you in realizing a new era of your life. Its symbolic color is black. If it would look appropriate, other things considered, paint your front door black. In any case, clean your front door and make it a big inviting smile. I have the impression that your computer is in an area that serves or could serve as your home office, and that it’s shared with the family and dining room. To the extent possible set this area up so that you are supported; have the “backing” of a wall perhaps. The desk should face back into the room. You can hide wires with knee high bookcases facing into the room. If you intend for the office to provide income, more clearly define your space to give it integrity separate from the dining/family area. This can concentrate your earning potential and focus your process. In addition, if that office/family/dining room is less of an open-ended meandering sprawl of different functions, it assists you in having an “off” switch for work. Entering or even passing the room will not be an automatic “I should be working” prompt. Space permitting, consider closing the office section off — even occasionally — maybe with a moveable standing screen. Examine and upgrade your circumstances in the wealth, fame and career sectors of your home, and this will assist you in mining new rewards from the treasure that is you.

Dear Patty, You have a lot going on and an additional revenue income stream would certainly be helpful as you no longer partner with another to share expenses. Your wealth sector is the left rear quadrant, and the Buddha that so pleases you — even though metal (a challenging element in the wealth sector) — is good. Perfect of you to place it in such a way that squares off the gap there. Emphasize that area: decorate it, pay attention to it, sit in it, make seasonal changes to enliven it, perhaps adorn the Buddha from time to time. You are completing the form by locating and identifying that area. Typically for urgent financial matters, something fast growing and perpendicular/vertical would be my suggestion for that spot, such as a poplar. But you indicated that there was already pleasing and established growth there. This footprint of your house is very important but it doesn’t have to be your sole focus. There are many ways you can empower and energize your endeavors. A general tune up is a good beginning. In every area of your home — all rooms within it — exists a wealth sector (or not, if you have those areas missing.) Strengthen each wealth area; scrutinize it for any aspects of neglect, such as clutter, and so forth. Really address each of those areas in some ultimately pleasing way. It seems that your bathroom straddles both your wealth and fame sectors. If you are seeking additional work and income, think green! Get some green — literally — into the laundry room. Some ideas might be a floor rug and plant, if there is enough light. Ignore the fame aspect, as most of us don’t require that unless our career involves being in the public eye. But this area also corresponds with illumination and our own inner “eye,” as well as our reputation. We all require acknowledgement, recognition and to be respectfully considered in various ways. We need our voice to express our interpretation of matters in any circumstance involving others, which ultimately affects our quality of life. Let’s turn our attention to the career sector of the bagua in the center front. While this aspect represents your career, ultimately this area supports and nourishes your journey in life. It

Dear Lynn, I enjoy your column in Spirit of Change magazine and need your help. My house has a “missing corner.” It is in the left rear (wealth) corner of my home. It is what it is, as I am not putting on any additions soon, so… I have a lovely overgrown forsythia bush, grasses and moss-covered stones within and around the surrounding area. I recently added a small, 12” statue of a young, relaxing Buddha. It made me smile when I saw it and I thought it could help in this area. I located it exactly where the corner would be if my house were one square. He is made of — metal. Is this a problem given all the greenery around it and the very Zen feeling I have just looking at it? What are some suggestions for this corner? Inside the house, what is considered the left rear: the farthest left or the farthest rear? The farthest rear contains an unfinished, second, half-bathroom and the back hall laundry room. The farthest left contains a computer and my family/dining room. Any advice would be appreciated. I am working on fixing my finances — seeking additional income/work after separating from my spouse two years ago. Thanks so much. — Patty

SUCCESS IS THE COURAGE TO TRY

Believing In You After Infidelity After you have found out that the person you love, respect, and trust has betrayed you, how do you go on? What does it mean to believe in you? It means, having confidence in the person you are without having the silent voice telling you, “that if you were really worth it, then he/she wouldn’t have dishonored the relationship.” How would it feel to know you are enough, simply because of who you are in heart and in spirit? So often we can lose sight of our true measure of value during this painful chapter of our lives. Have you ever wondered, “Do I really even matter?” When our most sacred and intimate adult relationship has been ‘hit’ by betrayal, it is a normal response to feel “less than” in this world? If you are trying to find your way through your feelings of shattered hopes, dreams, and self worth, this is a workshop that can assist you in rediscovering your inner excellence. During this weekend seminar we will address situations that may have created pain, self doubt, and negative beliefs about oneself. We will develop skills to redirect unproductive thoughts when you doubt your inner purpose. This will be an opportunity to celebrate you. It is also a time to affirm how important you are to yourself and to those around you.

Giving Wings to Your Holistic Business Dreams By Jonathan Podolsky any people dream of starting their own business in the hopes of creating more fulfilling career opportunities. However, many are also intimidated by what they feel would be an all-consuming life change and fear the loss of financial security. Fortunately, it is possible to start small, investing a couple hours a week exploring new opportunities, without jeopardizing your current work responsibilities. Here are some tips to consider.

M

Find low cost advertising. When Aaron Singleton of Way to Balance Healing Center in Andover, MA, was just getting started with his career, he got together with several other practitioners in his field and purchased a print ad. Each practitioner listed their name and contact information separately, so all were able to get started attracting new clients with a sizable ad for a minimal investment.

Home or office? While the thought of

Establish yourself as an expert. Speak about your topic at places

no commute or office overhead is certainly appealing, Sue Singleton of Way to Balance Healing Center in Andover, MA, recommends considering pitfalls such as potentially disruptive energy from clients (especially if you are an energy practitioner), foot traffic through your home, parking in your driveway, or remodeling costs in retrofitting your space to local health codes. On the other hand, there are tax write-offs associated with home business expenses that can work to your advantage. Consult a tax advisor in advance.

Choose your name wisely. John Martel of New Age Marketing suggests that you “make sure your company name makes sense; will someone that has no idea who you are be able to figure out what your company does from reading the name?” Another important consideration in our digital world is Internet presence. “Get a simple web site up as soon as possible. Don’t name your business and then discover that you can’t get any variation of your company name as a domain.” To see if a Web site name is available log onto www. godaddy.com and type in the name you want to check. Another site, www.nameboy.com, can help you brainstorm by suggesting similar names and word combinations.

Start small. Remember, you’re just testing the waters, so start small and get a minimum supply of business cards and a brochure printed. If you are completely on a shoestring budget and have some basic computer skills, you may be able to create your cards and brochure yourself and even print them on your own home computer. Keep in mind, however, that print materials prepared by a professional may make your first impression your best one. Do your homework ahead of time and save money by writing out the brochure and business card text, and your local print shop should be able to professionally design and print 500 business cards and tri-fold brochures for less than $200.

such as libraries, clubs, networking groups, new age bookstores (many of them hold classes), and health fairs. It’s a chance for free publicity and to network with potential clients in person. Write articles on your topic and submit them to editors of newsletters and local publications to see if they are interested in printing them or having you revise the article to fit their needs.

Network with other businesses. Sheldon Snodgrass of The Steady Sales Group suggests mentioning each other in newsletters, holding joint seminars, buying cooperative advertising, combining e-mail and print mail campaigns, establishing frequent buyer programs together, posting reciprocal web site links and stories, and sending out mail stuffers with monthly invoices. Identify businesses you enjoy working with find ways you can support each other to make both businesses stronger.

Contact everyone you know about your business. Diana Krauth of Elements Hot Tub Spa keeps stamped, business postcards in her car and on her desk, ready for mailing. Whenever someone’s name comes to mind or she notices a business in her travels that she wants to contact, she addresses the card right away so it’s all ready for dropping in the mailbox, or jots down the name on the post card to look up later.

There’s A Place For Negotiation

M.Ed, Shamanic Counselor Writer & Workshop Facilitator

By Cynthia Pasciuto

“Should I sign it?” my client asked.

I

gave the sublease agreement a quick glance. My client was looking to rent space from a tenant in a business office. The individual, as the sublandlord, had created a sublease agreement. Despite expressing concerns to me about details of the agreement, the document hadn’t been marked up — meaning my client saw the sublease as either all-yes or all-no. “Did you talk about your concerns?” I asked. “No, not really.” There were many issues with the short sublease agreement. The two most important to my client being the short amount of time given in the event the sublandlord wanted to break the lease, and the amount for rent. My client didn’t believe she could disagree with the person who would be renting her the space. However, she was looking at the situation incorrectly. It was not a disagreement; she was entering into a negotiation. As a business owner you may not realize the power of negotiation. It can be used to deal with a difficult client, but mostly with vendors who provide you with supplies. There is a misconception that a printed contract cannot be changed. However, negotiating can help reach your original goal. There are different negotiating methods. A competitive approach is based on self-interest, and the outcome is often at the expense of the other party. This can be likened to bullying, and usually happens when one party is in a powerful position. In direct opposition with a competitive approach is accommodating, which is agreeing with the other person’s opinion and/or idea. There are two negotiating models that are taught as a form of conflict resolution. Compromising is placing both parties in a win/lose situation, like competitive, but the goal is an outcome of a draw. Since this is more competitive, usually one side receives more than the other as each party asserts their own needs over the other party. Puffery and deception is often used to improve a party’s position. The method which is recommended is called collaborative. It is based upon the book, Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher and William Ury. The collaborative approach is win/win: this is nonadversarial, problem-solving. The two parties disclose their interests and needs to reach their common goals. The first aspect is that this negotiating style is based on building a relationship and establishing a channel of communication. In order to develop trust, try the following: • Keep your word • Be willing to make concessions • Understand and acknowledge the other person’s needs • Make good eye contact • Go above and beyond expectations • Give credit where credit is due www.spiritofchange.org

In using the collaborative method to achieve an agreement, there are some concepts that you will need to discuss with the other negotiating party. • Interests by both parties. Interests are the desires and concerns of each party. They are beyond what is being stated, and really the true reasons for the negotiation. • Options to both parties. This may require some brainstorming to discover other choices available. • What does each party have the authority to do? Negotiation needs to happen between the two parties who can enter into an agreement. • Devise an alternate course of action if parties do not reach an agreement. • Commitment and implementation of the agreement. At first, the collaborative method can be awkward, but if you plan to have a long-term business relationship then it is mutually satisfying. If you plan to have a short-term relationship then the compromising approach may be a better direction. There may also be the scenario where you wish to use a collaborative method, but the other party is uncooperative. Additional tips which can be of assistance are: • Learn to be comfortable with disagreement. This will allow you to think clearly. • Be likable. Avoid going on the defensive. You can still assert your needs and be yourself. In the case of my client, the sublandlord would be someone with whom she would have a long-term relationship; additionally, there was the potential for them to refer clients to her. Using the collaborative negotiation method was her best choice. In order to do this she had to see that the interest for both sides was security. The sublandlord wanted to know that having a tenant would be beneficial, not disruptive. My client was concerned with a different type of security — her livelihood. The negotiating session between the two parties lasted about an hour. There was much brainstorming regarding time periods, costs and maintenance. In the end, the original agreement was amended and both were satisfied with the results. Negotiation skills are an asset to your business. They can help you reach your goals in a beneficial way.

Finding Life’s Flow Think of the last time you felt in the flow of your life...

Y

our thoughts were clear. Your decisions came easily. You didn’t react to other people’s stuff. The air smelled sweet. Colors were bright. Is that where you live most of the time, or are there only fleeting moments that feel that good? What is it that takes us out of those moments? This human Earth school has taught us well. We have learned what it is to feel alone and disconnected, always thinking that others have life all figured out. And then there are those glimpses of total connection. The contrast is mind-boggling. Contrast is how we understand. If we never felt unloved, how would we truly understand love? If we never felt pain, how would we appreciate ease and fulfillment? We have come a long way. We have learned a lot. And now, in this lifetime on Earth, we have a new opportunity. We can live in the flow of life. We can experience the amazing inner and outer

strength that comes when we are operating from all our capabilities — both human and divine. In fact, living as that “true self” is the next lesson here on Earth. That’s the next level of mastering Earth life. Sounds good, but what does that really mean? Eckhert Tolle’s The New Earth series with Oprah shows how the “pain body” can rule one’s life. This pain body has latched onto a way of thinking and feeling that operates only from the human ego. As you look through its eyes, you see a world that is overwhelming and unsafe. It lays like a shroud over the truth inside. Eckhert offers ways to become the observer of that shroud, noticing how it thinks and how it acts. I can remember a time when I lived from a pain body that thought everything was my fault. If anyone became upset, I figured I had done something wrong. My energy and attention would be spent trying to do whatever I thought it took to make things right. Wow! What an energy drain that was! When I could finally step aside from the pain body and see it for what it was, I realized that others were operating from their own set of expectations and pain. With this new perspective, I could decide what, if anything, I needed to


do differently — not because others thought I should, but because I felt there was something I wanted to change in me. But how do you step aside from this pain? How do you become the observer of your life instead of identifying so completely with the painful thinking that says that’s who you are? How can you step into the flow? Most people (though not all) start life as a happy, carefree soul exploring an amazing world. Then, the human stuff begins to seep in. Parents place expectations on the child from the baggage they are carrying around from their upbringing. They believe that’s what it takes to be a good parent because that’s what they experienced from their parents. And so the pattern gets passed down from generation to generation. For me, some of that baggage was “Do it right.” “Be a good girl.” “Do it because I said so.” “Be perfect.” Think about the messages you received while growing up. Notice that each one is based on a fear of not measuring up to some standard that has been set up, or worry that if you don’t follow the rules you will be separate and alone. This is not the real you. The real you is often covered over by a series of overlays, which each have their own beliefs and emotions. These overlays are not connected with your intuition or your beingness. Each of them operates separately as a fractured piece of the ego. For some, they are so real the person believes that the fractured piece is who they are. As you peel off these overlays, the true-you can emerge. You begin to feel the connection to universal truth, and a knowing that this is deep inside of you. You see clearly that the fear and the beliefs that spring from the fear are not you — not the real you that is forever a soul. In many ways, pain bodies represent much of the learning we have been going through in life. Eventually, I had to figure out what “Do it right” meant to me, not to my parents, society, or even my church. “Do it right” meant being in the flow. For me, being in the flow means I am part of my inner truth. Like a river, I am moving toward a goal that is deep inside of me. Each decision I make moves me further down that river. How I spend my energy (time, money, attention) feels good; I feel like there is a reason for what I am doing. This kind of flow comes from a clear connection between the inner me and the outer me. The inner me is a deep soul connection. The outer me is the human life I have chosen to live. When the connection has been made, I recognize my unique human abilities and capabilities as the tools my soul can use during its time in physical form. So how does one make this connection between the inner and outer reality? As always, there are many options to choose. You may already know a bit about the chakras. These are energy centers in the body that vibrate as a certain color. Each vibration is needed by the body in order for it to be healthy. As you work with each vibration, you learn what life is all about. When you use these colors in pairs, you bring together what you experience as a human and what you know as a being, thus the term human being. We are beings (souls) choosing to experience what it is to be human (form). Without the being, we are limited in what we know and how we see life. Without the human, the being has no way to experience Earth and all its complexities. Breathing and visualization techniques encourage the complementary colors to work together, which means the human and the being are working together. When energy is stuck it affects the color vibrations in our personal physical and energetic body. By introducing a color’s complement into our visualizations, the energy shifts. The stuck energy begins to flow so we can see things differently. Color visualizations work well at home for self-care, or in individual or group sessions with a practitioner. It can easily become a daily ritual to help us stay in the flow, to remind us that we are both human and being. In a way, this is no surprise. We know that everything is energy. Einstein taught us that nothing is created or destroyed. It is all energy that changes, just as water can be ice, liquid or steam. Each of us is a bright rainbow of changing color that reminds us and the world of the beauty that we are. Arlene Arnold is the creator and founder of Complementary Color Therapy.

magine sitting on a beautiful white sandy beach. The sun is directly overhead and its rays are brilliant and warm as they flow from the top of your head and throughout your body. Let your toes feel the cool, turquoise blue water. See yourself staring out to sea, mesmerized by the dancing rhythm of the waves. Watch and hear the seagulls fly above you, then see them dive into the sparkling water. You feel at peace here. After awhile, you notice a huge wave coming toward you but you are not afraid. The water comes close to your hand and when the wave is gone, you see it has left you a wondrous gift. Glowing like jewels on the sand are seven different colors of seaglass.

You pick up the red seaglass first and hold it in the palm of your hand. Stare into the seaglass and imagine you are becoming smaller and smaller until you are surrounded by the red seaglass. Feel the warmth and energy of the color red. Red gives you courage and helps you obtain your material needs. Now breathe in the color red and as you inhale, feel the intense power of red. As you exhale, breathe out any fears and doubts you may have about yourself, your family and your life. Now pick up the orange-colored seaglass. Look into the seaglass and become

the color orange. Orange is a joyful color. With orange, you feel happy about your choices and your life and will not allow anyone or anything to dampen your enthusiasm. Breathe in orange and as you inhale, breathe in happiness and joy. As you exhale, breathe out any bad habits or addictions which may prevent you from enjoying your life.

Now pick up the yellow-colored seaglass and feel the power of yellow surround you. Yellow gives you more confidence in yourself, no matter how many criticisms you receive. Breathe in yellow and as you inhale, breathe in confidence and self-worth. Feel the knowledge and wisdom of yellow. As you exhale, release your worries, your low self-esteem and anything else which may prevent you from enjoying your life.

Place the green-colored seaglass into your hand. It is the color of harmony and balance and peace. When you are hurrying to meet deadlines, visualize the color green and allow your balance to be restored. Breathe in green and as you inhale, breathe in peace, good health and forgiveness. As you exhale, breathe out sickness, hatred and jealousy.

Pick up the blue-colored seaglass and become the color blue. Blue offers you creativity and communication. Blue helps you perceive the truth about yourself and about others. Breathe in blue and as you inhale, breathe in truth and serenity. As you exhale, breathe out dishonesty and stubbornness.

Now pick up the indigo-colored seaglass. Indigo is the color of intuition, your inner voice that tells you to “go for it.” You need to trust your intuition if you are to realize your full potential as a human being. As you inhale, breathe in wisdom and intuition. As you exhale, breathe out judgment and depression.

Now there is only one seaglass left to explore, the violet-colored one. It is the color of spirit, of faith. No matter how difficult your life may get, remember that faith never lets you give up on yourself. Breathe in the color violet and as you inhale, breathe in faith and gratitude. As you exhale, breathe out arrogance and negativity. Red. Orange. Yellow. Green. Blue. Indigo. Violet. You have now collected seven powerful and healing colors, your personal rainbow from the sea. Whenever you wish to feel emotionally, physically and spiritually balanced, meditate on these colorful vibrations. Enjoy your day!

hether Christian, Jewish, Moslem, Hindu or Jain, bringing voices together to sing Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is a universal form of celebration and worship. The Hindu tradition relates that thousands of years ago, God-conscious rishis created the basic phonetic building blocks of the Sanskrit language to vibrate physically in our bodies to awaken kundalini, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;coiled serpentâ&#x20AC;? of spiritual energy running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Kirtan is an ancient sadhana (spiritual discipline) of pronouncing the seed syllables of Sanskrit to create the names of God (of which there are hundreds and hundreds). By putting these mantras to simple melodies, sung in a call and response fashion, the hypnotic repetition of names weaves a deep meditative state and one-pointed focus of concentration. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think when you sing! As the music intensifies, gradually increasing in speed, and the group experience of singing loud together resonates with the vibration created by the vocal cords pronouncing these sacred seed syllables, kundalini rises and you begin your journey up the spine to heaven. The key is to sing as if you are alone in the shower, as the Indians say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;full throatedly.â&#x20AC;? Put your heart fully into singing the kirtan, close your eyes, throw your head back and open wide so your soul soars with the birds and the space is created for God to come and sing a special response in your ear.


Within the past 10 years, record sales, ticket sales and the popularity of kirtan has grown to the point where many yoga centers in the US have at least one night of kirtan a month. Additionally, there is a large community of kirtan wallahs and wallis (kirtan leaders) all across America advancing the availability of this practice to the general public. Most people find the singing great fun; even those who have been taught they cannot sing can easily find their true voice during kirtan, which is also a great community builder.

A Brief Kirtan History Kirtan has its roots in Indian prehistory. In the earliest days of Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism), Brahma gave birth to hundreds of rishis, and the community of the three worlds consisted of Gods and Goddesses in heaven, rishis and munis on Earth along with the rest of humanity, and asuras (demons) in the underworld. In Sanatana Dharma, history is divided into segments known as yugas. The Kali Yuga is the period we are in now, and it is a time of crass materialism and body consciousness. The wisdom taught by the Bhagavad Gita (Krishna’s treatise on spiritual paths) and many sages and saints since Krishna’s time has said that the best way for mankind to awaken kundalini and attain cosmic consciousness in the Kali Yuga is to use these simplest mantras, and to make a practice of repeating them all day long, even when the mind is occupied in other matters. This practice is called japa. A mala (108-bead necklace) can be used for meditatively repeating mantras. Near the end of the 13th century, a child named Jnaneshwar was born with God consciousness. Even as a 6-year-old child, he gave teachings to the villagers and offered healings. Word got around to the town Brahmins, and they said, “This cannot be.” So they called the boy in before them and said, “If you are a saint, make that cow over there recite the Vedas.” Jnaneshwar said, “The cow and I are one,” and as he began to chant, the cow began to chant with him. Prior to Jnaneshwar, devotional music in the Hindu tradition was called bhajan and it was composed of long sentences of prayer, sung call and response. At the age of 12, Jnaneshwar began to take the verbs, adjectives and adverbs out of the music and he created namasankirtan (nama-name, san-group, kirtan-sing), changing the devotional music of India from prayer to meditation. He would invite saints from all over India to his home to sing for days on end. Jnaneshwar went on to write the Jnaneshwari, the definitive commentary on the Bhagavad Gita, which is, even today, taught in all Indian schools. Less than 100 years later a great Bengali saint named Chaitanya was born. He was such a great devotee of Krishna that some thought he was Krishna. Chaitanya began teaching the chant “Hare Krishna Hare Rama” as a way to reach a state of yoga (union) and have great experiences of higher consciousness and bliss along the way. He was the first great practitioner of bhakti (passionate love of God as a path) yoga. He transformed Mogul India, reawakening the Hindu traditions, which were under oppression from the Muslim empire. Shubalananda is an Aghor sadhu As word spread around studying with Baba Harihar Ram-ji the Muslim empire about this saint, he became a from Benares and says, “I am the threat, was arrested and luckiest man in the world…I have was about to be sentenced found my dharma — kirtan.” to death.

www.spiritofchange.org

The judge asked him “Do you have a last request before I sentence you to death?” Chaitanya said, “Yes judge, please sing the Hare Krishna kirtan with me just one time.” So the judge agreed and before he finished, the judge went into ecstasy, dropped his robes and went dancing into the streets with Chaitanya. The Hare Krishna chant spread throughout India and namasankirtan began to be used as a short cut to meditation. Chaitanya’s lineage passed along through many great saints such as Ramakrishna and Ananda Mayi Ma, right “I have studied with the greatest down to today where kirtan wallah ever, MA Chetan kirtan is sung not only to Krishna, but to all the Jyoti,” (pictured above) says Shubal. masculine and feminine names of God, becoming a rich cultural and spiritual tradition throughout India. At some ashrams kirtan is going on 24 hours a day as a discipline. Kirtan found its way to the West through one of India’s great gurus from the 20th century, Neem Karoli Baba, who instructed one of his students, Ram Dass (Richard Alpert), to return to America and teach. NKB taught, through Ram Dass, the complex philosophies of Sanatana Dharma (what Westerners called Hinduism) in language they could understand. He eventually suffered a stroke in 1997. Maharaji (Neem Karoli Baba) now continues to teach Americans through Krishna Das (another of NKB’s disciples from the 60’s). Krishna Das soared into fame and popularity, and, like Johnny Appleseed, planted the seed syllables of kirtan across America. 25 years ago, kirtan only took place among the devotees of a specific guru. Sai Baba people did their Sai Baba kirtans, and the Muktananda people sang only with their satsang. When Krishna Das’ CD, Pilgrim Heart, hit the charts in 1998, suddenly everyone wanted to sing, whether they had a guru or not, and the focus became more generic and moved into the yoga centers. Ram Dass used to say, “You can only go as far as your teacher has gone.” It is generally assumed that a kirtan leader has had initiation with a guru and practices regular sadhana. Often, they are supported by the dakshina (offerings) of their community. There are many kirtan leaders who call what they do kirtan, but in reality it is just their own brand of spiritual music. It is good to always ask: Is the leader a good musician, does he or she sing pleasingly, and most importantly, do you feel the rise of kundalini energy from their kirtan? Kirtan is not about buying your ticket and enjoying the show; it is about opening the doorway to onepointedness and beyond. By quieting your thinking mind through singing, the information from the chakras becomes audible, allowing you to access exhilarating states of spiritual connection quickly and repeatedly. Through kirtan, music becomes God’s greatest gift and fills the environment with love.

Shubalananda travels to centers in New England 5 nights a week to offer kirtans and will offer a large group kirtan Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2 pm at Spirit of Change Magazine’s 2008 Natural Living Expo in Sturbridge, MA (see back cover). E-mail Shubalananda@aol.com to request notice of regular kirtans being held or to be added to his mailing list.

Better Living Through Technology 1. Have all members of your household commit to turning off lights you are not using. As a rule of thumb, there should be a maximum of one light on in your house per person at any given time.

14. Saving water means saving energy. The energy used to transport and treat the water that runs out of your tap for five minutes would power a 60-watt bulb for 14 hours. Fix any water leaks around your house and replace faucets and showerheads with low-flow alternatives.

2. If you’re going to be away from your computer or other appliance for more than an hour, turn it off as you leave the room. 3. Many electronics use electricity even when they’re turned off. Eliminate “phantom load” by plugging your TV and accessories into one power strip and switching off the whole strip when not in use. At least 5% of the average household’s monthly utility bill goes towards powering devices that are turned off. 4. Switch from 75-watt incandescent bulbs to 19-watt compact fluorescent bulbs. 5. Move your refrigerator away from the wall and clean the coils behind and beneath it every six months for a dramatic increase in energy efficiency. The refrigerator is usually the biggest energy-using appliance in a home. 6. If it’s time to buy a new refrigerator, make sure it’s an energy-efficient Energy Star model. If possible, upgrade any pre-1993 refrigerator you are using to an Energy Star model. Recycle old refrigerators as trash instead of giving them away to someone else to waste energy. 7. Schedule an energy audit on your home and identify ways you can use less electricity and plug energy leaks in your home. Your local utility company may provide audits for free, or seek out the advice of a paid professional whose comprehensive recommendations may save you even more money and energy in the long run. Make a plan for immediate, mid-range and long term goals you can attain, and then do them! 8. Lower your thermostat by a degree in winter and raise it by a degree in summer.

15. Skip the energy-intensive drying cycle on your dishwasher and choose the “air-dry” option, or open the door overnight. 16. Install Energy Star ceiling fans in your most-used rooms. 17. Use heavy curtains and drapes to cut down on heat loss in winter and keep the hot sun out in summer. Awnings on the outside of your windows are about 50 percent more efficient than indoor drapes because they stop the sun before it even hits the glass. 18. Plant trees to shade your windows and help reduce cooling costs. Shading an AC unit can increase its efficiency by ten percent. In winter months, trees and shrubs can act as wind blockers to buffer your home from chilling winds. 19. If you are in the market to buy a new TV, choose an LCD screen rather than a plasma, which uses six times as much energy. Always look for the Energy Star label. 20. Bring reusable shopping bags with you to all stores instead of using free plastic bags supplied by the store. Petition your legislators to ban free plastic bags in your town, state or country. Visit this web link for a 1-minute, eye-popping slideshow on the facts about planetary plastic bag overload www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/ article?AID=/ 20080506/MULTIMEDIA02/ 80505016 21. Drive a car that gets 35 mpg instead of the national average of 25 mpg. 22. Cut down your driving radius by using local service providers and buying products locally. You may also find this saves you several hours of time each week! 23. Purchase locally grown food and grow some of your own food.

9. Don’t heat or cool empty rooms.

24. Eat raw food that requires no cooking.

10. Dry some or all of your clothes on a laundry rack or clothesline instead of using a dryer. Or dry 5 minutes in the dryer to remove wrinkles, then hang outside to air dry. Visit www.laundrylist.org for line drying info and tips.

25. Eat less meat.

11. With modern washers and detergents, washing your clothes in cold water gets them just as clean as washing in hot water, but it uses half the energy. About 13 percent of the energy used in your household goes to heating hot water. 12. Turn down your gas hot water heater from 140 degrees to 120 degrees. 13. Insulating your hot water heater and pipes with a covering can reduce heat losses by 24-45 percent, trimming as much as ten percent off your water-heating costs.

Combining Sustainability and Comfort By Julie Brill

Living Sustainably with a Good Quality of Life

D

avid Bearg feels he’s been blessed and cursed to be anti-delusional in a delusional culture. One result is that he and his family live in a beautiful, sustainable home, a short walk from White Pond in West Concord, Massachusetts. When he bought this house thirty years ago, it was a seven hundred square foot summer cabin. Over twenty years ago, in anticipation of the birth of their first son, Samuel, David and his wife, Kate, added eleven hundred square feet. Another nine hundred square feet was added three years later, before the birth of their second son, Nat. Back then, David was already predicting the rising energy costs we face today, so he built the additions with insulated one-foot thick walls. He saw a well-insulated space as an investment in the future. “I was a green building scientist before the term existed,” he explains. “It’s been integral to what I am for awhile.” He is also able to use those skills professionally. His business, IAQ Consulting, works to help clients maximize indoor air quality while saving energy. Over the years, David has made many energy efficient improvements. Attached to the back of the home is a south-facing greenhouse, which has been watered by grey water from the shower upstairs since the 1970s. The shower water drains through a rock filter in the basement, and then automatically pumps into the greenhouse. The water is piped directly to the root zone, keeping it from splashing the leaves, and reducing the amount of weed seeds that are able to germinate. This is both more sanitary and time saving. Below the greenhouse are rocks

to hold the heat. When the temperature rises, an electric fan circulates the heat, allowing David to store this warmth for a garden all winter. There are beds filled with lettuce and a large, leafy fig tree in the corner. Outside there is edible landscaping: peaches, apples and hardy kiwi. David and his son Nat have welded a structure to support netting that will keep him from having to share his blueberries with the blue jays. He has one thousand strawberry plants to enjoy and share with friends, and he and his wife are also experimenting with putting some of them by for the winter. For even more local food in season, and to preserve, they belong to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. “Living our lives sustainably has a lot to do with the food we eat,” David explains. He believes we all must take more responsibility for where our food comes from, and that local food will become increasingly important. He suggests getting rid of our lawns and “planting vegetables, like victory gardens. Plant fruits and berries and convert to burning wood, because it’s going to get down to survival.” His sustainable house also features a solar ventilation shaft that uses the power of the sun to move energy through the building and south facing, etched glass windows in the kitchen that harvest sunlight to daylight the room. Because ten times as much energy is lost through windows as through walls, David has built insulated shutters to reduce heat loss. He admits that some might contend that they aren’t cost effective, but he adds quickly, “I enjoyed building them.” David has recently begun heating with wood, and he is drying a stack of it in the south facing sunroom. The drier the wood, the less energy will be used to evaporate this moisture, and the more that will be available to heat the house. He plans to build a wood shed with a solar powered ventilation system to move air, causing the wood to dry more rapidly. Since the wood will create more heat when dried, this will enable him to store and burn less wood. continues on next page

This is Henry David Thoreau country, and Thoreau spoke highly of David’s neighborhood kettle pond, White Pond. Like Thoreau, David has built a cabin where he can retreat to think about how to simplify his life. The cabin is a two hundred square foot solar heated room, which serves as a meditation space, meeting space for groups and guesthouse. The projects are impressive. David explains, “I figure it out as I go. I want to minimize how much energy I need to maintain what I consider to be a good quality of life.” He’s quick to add, “That quality is more about the relationships I maintain with my wife, my sons and my community. I don’t want to proselytize, but quality is about how to live more simply on this planet, because we’re all going to need to. If our species is going to survive with some reasonable quality of life, there must be some humility, some spiritual reverence for the planet. If you drive around in a gas guzzler, essentially you’re stealing energy from your children. The more we can simplify our lives and improve their quality, the more hope we have for the future.” Consumers can make sustainable improvements by taking advantage of free resources first. David suggests, “Have the power company come out and do an audit, and they’ll give you a compact florescent bulb for your trouble. If you’ve had an icicle problem, that’s not a roof defect; you already know that you have excess heat loss from the structure.” A next step is to have an infrared scan with and without a blower door. That will help you visualize where your heat loss is, a good way to quantify how leaky a building is. David believes the future will require a combination of post-traditional agriculture and technology. Quality of life will increasingly depend on the human relationships near us, and on our ability to live more on current sunshine than on stored solar energy. For most of the history of our species, people walked much more than most do now, and it will become important for us to structure our lives to drive less. He advises parents to cultivate more responsibility in their kids, since “things will change rapidly and they’ll need

those skills. But eventually, when we are successful in living more sustainably, we’ll also get the benefit of being able to slow down, reduce stress in our lives, and be able to spend more time enjoying those human relationships around us.”

Grabbing Dollars out of Thin Air

B

ob Gagnon, a fourth generation master plumber, describes himself as “not into theory — I’m a nuts and bolts guy.” In the 1970s, his dad was obsessed with solar and didn’t see why it couldn’t be used for heating. He would put garden hoses up on the roof to show how hot they got. “When I was in school, he’d make me ask my teachers why we couldn’t heat with solar. Once I graduated, he made me ask my boss,” Bob remembers. “They’d all say the same thing; you need to get the temperature up to one hundred and eighty degrees for baseboard heat. That turns out not to be true for radiant heat.” On the first day of a June heat wave, Bob’s garrison colonial in Lowell, Massachusetts is surprisingly cool and comfortable, thanks to the radiant cooling system he installed himself. Bob says, “I got the idea in 2000 when I was out back watering the lawn and the water coming from my twelve foot point driven well was so cold!” Even in August, his well water never gets above 56 degrees. Now that water is piped into the home, where it cools the water in the radiant system, and then the cooled water circulates in the walls, floors, and ceilings, cooling them to sixty-eight degrees. “This radiant cooling surrounds you,” explains Bob. “Unlike with air conditioning, everything in the room is cool to the touch. Air doesn’t hold cold like solid surfaces. It feels like a spring day

argie Lynch wants her 1248 square feet eco house in Stow, Massachusetts to be an example of the kind of home you can have even if you’re not handy and don’t have a huge budget. She consciously built a small house since they require less material to build and lower energy to operate. A passionate environmentalist, she says, “I attended conferences to learn about green building on my own nickel. My goals were to build this type of home and to start the career that I now have promoting energy efficiency in new construction.” Margie was involved in a pilot program through the US Greenbuilding Council, which certified homes that met criteria for water use, energy efficiency, site selection, materials, and indoor air quality. Their nationally recognized Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifies green building design, construction and operations. In February 2007, Margie’s home became the first certified silver residence in Massachusetts. Ninety four percent, or 6.1 tons of jobsite waste was recycled. This included 3.75 tons of gypsum, which was completely recycled, and 2.33 tons of mixed wastes, eighty-five percent of which was recycled. This enabled Margie to exceed the LEED mandatory certification requirement of 2.5 pounds of waste per square foot by almost two pounds, and cost her no more than she would have paid for conventional dumping. Simple choices add up to a big difference in Margie’s home. The wood for her floors was sustainably, locally harvested and the trim is Forest Stewardship Council Certified (FSCC). Her kitchen counter is a reclaimed bowling alley lane. “I wanted to use more reclaimed materials,” she laments. “But because of the work involved, they were often significantly more expensive than buying new. But it would work for someone who is handy and passionate.” She adds, “I choose a gravel driveway because I’m adamantly opposed to asphalt. It’s a petroleum product with an impervious surface. And it viciously absorbs heat, making it hotter around the house.” She also chose low energy appliances and low VOC (volatile


organic compound) paints and finishes. Her cabinets have no particleboard material, which contain formaldehyde. Her walls are insulated with solid Styrofoam, so the only heat loss is at the windows. She also installed low flow toilets and faucet aerators. Margie used a kilowatt device to measure how much energy her appliances were drawing when they were plugged in but turned off. “I was surprised to discover my VCR registered at eight watts,” she says, “so I installed a kill switch to reduce the standby power use on my television, VCR and stereo.” She has insulated shades on her western windows and installed programmable thermostats to automatically turn down at night and back up in the morning before rising. She chose radiant heat and a 94% efficient boiler. She made a conscious decision to leave her lawn as an unmowed meadow and save the resources required to maintain a lawn. (See “EarthTalk,” page 30 this issue.). Margie estimates her green choices cost her only an additional 5%. She points out “when we educate contractors, we have the opportunity for change in the long term. I recognize that in choosing to build a small house I may have lowered its resale value, but we can’t be slaves to resale value. It needs to make sense in the moment. It was hard to decide to add another structure; if I was going to build a house, I wanted to do it right.” Margie’s sustainable decisions may actually become increasingly appealing in the resale market. According to the recently released Green Homeowner SmartMarket™ Report produced by McGraw-Hill Construction, the market for “true green homes” is expected to rise from $2 billion to $20 billion over the next five years. Homeowners making decisions like Margie’s can add up to significant changes. “Nearly half of all energy used in the United States each year is consumed in the operation and construction of buildings,” says David Barclay, Executive Director of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA). “Architects, building engineers, and contractors therefore hold the single largest key to controlling greenhouse gases and climate change. Unlike vehicle emissions, where the entire U.S. fleet will turn over in 10-12 years, building life spans range from 50-100 years. With five billion square feet of new construction and five billion square feet of renovation occurring each year, the potential for reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases is enormous.” Margie suggests consumers buy Energy Star rated appliances and take advantage of rebates that may be available to them. Because they’re huge energy hogs, it can be a good idea to get rid of older fridges, even if they’re working. Adding more insulation can also make a big difference.” Being environmentally mindful is a commitment to doing lots of research,” she believes. “It can be challenging, but it’s also rewarding. It’s exciting to have control. As green keeps getting bigger, it’s only going to get better.”

G. Robert Evans, DMD Jean Nordin-Evans, DDS Gilbert D. Carney, DMD, DC Robert Luby, MD Gail Vanark, MS, ARNP

he worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cities are facing unprecedented problems. In Mexico City, Tehran, Kolkata, Bangkok, Shanghai, and hundreds of other cities, the air is no longer safe to breathe. Respiratory illnesses are rampant. In the United States, the number of hours commuters spend sitting frustrated in traffic-congested streets and highways climbs higher each year. In response, forward-thinking city planners are seeking ways to redesign cities for people, not cars. They have begun to realize that urban transport systems based on a combination of rail lines, bus lines, bicycle pathways, and pedestrian walkways offer the best of all possible worlds in providing mobility, low-cost transportation, and a healthy urban environment. A rail system can provide the foundation for a cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation system. Rails, either underground or on the surface, are geographically fixed, providing a permanent means of transportation that people can count on. Once in place, the nodes on such a system become the obvious places to concentrate office buildings, high-rise apartment buildings, and shops. Some of the most innovative public transportation systems, those that shift huge numbers of people from cars into buses, have been developed in Curitiba and BogotĂĄ. The success of BogotĂĄâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bus rapid transit (BRT) system, TransMilenio, which uses special express lanes to move people quickly through the city, is being replicated not only in six other Colombian cities but elsewhere too: Mexico City, SĂŁo Paulo, Hanoi, Seoul, Taipei, Quito, and several cities in Africa. In China, Beijing is one of 20 cities developing BRT systems. Even industrial-country cities such as Ottawa, Toronto, Minneapolis, Las Vegas, and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; much to everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Los Angeles have launched or are now considering BRT systems. Some cities are reducing traffic congestion and air pollution by charging cars to enter the city, including Singapore, London, Stockholm, and Milan. In 2003, London adopted a ÂŁ5 ($10) charge on all motorists driving into the center city between 7 am and 6:30 pm, immediately reducing the number of vehicles on the road. Within a year, bus ridership increased by 38 percent and delays dropped by 30 percent. In July 2005, the fee was raised to ÂŁ8 ($16). Overall, since the congestion charge was adopted, car and minicab traffic into the central city has dropped 36 percent, while bicycle traffic has increased by 50 percent. Paris Mayor Bertrand DelanoĂŤ, who was elected in 2001, faced some of Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst traffic congestion and air pollution. He decided traffic would have to be cut 40 percent by 2020. The first step was to invest in better transit in outlying regions to ensure that everyone in the greater Paris area had access to high-quality public transit. The next step was to create express lanes on main thoroughfares for buses and bicycles, thus


reducing the number of lanes for cars. The third step was to establish a city bicycle rental program that by the end of 2007 had 20,600 bikes available at 1,450 docking stations throughout Paris. Accessed by credit card at inexpensive daily, monthly, or annual rates, the bicycles are proving to be immensely popular. At this point Mayor Delanoë is well along on his goal of cutting car traffic by 40 percent. The United States, which has lagged far behind Europe in developing diversified urban transport systems, is being swept by a “complete streets” movement, an effort to ensure that streets are friendly to pedestrians and bicycles as well as to cars. Many American communities lack sidewalks and bike lanes, making it difficult for pedestrians and cyclists to get around safely, particularly where streets are heavily traveled. This cars -only model is being challenged by the National Complete Streets Coalition, a powerful assemblage of citizen groups including the Natural Resources Defense Council, AARP (an organization of 38 million older Americans), and local and national cycling organizations. This coalition has aggressively lobbied for “complete streets” policies, which are now in place in 14 states and 40 metropolitan areas, cities, and counties. In early 2008, Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa and Representative Doris Matsui of California each introduced national “complete streets” legislation in the U.S. Congress. Countries that have well-developed urban transit systems and a mature bicycle infrastructure are much better positioned to withstand the stresses of a downturn in world oil production than are countries whose only transport option is the car. With a full array of walking and biking options, the number of trips by car can easily be cut by 10–20 percent. The bicycle has many attractions. It alleviates congestion, lowers air pollution, reduces obesity, does not emit climate-disrupting carbon dioxide, reduces the area of pavement needed, and has a price within reach for the billions of people who cannot afford an automobile. Few methods of reducing carbon emissions are as effective as substituting a bicycle for a car on short trips. A bicycle is a marvel of engineering efficiency, one where an investment in 22 pounds of metal and rubber boosts the efficiency of individual mobility by a factor of three. On my bike I estimate that I get easily 7 miles per potato. An automobile, which requires at least a ton of material to transport one person, is extraordinarily inefficient by comparison. The capacity of the bicycle to provide mobility for low-income populations was dramatically demonstrated in China. After the reforms in 1978 that led to an open market economy and rapidly rising incomes, bicycle production and ownership started climbing. The surge to 500 million bicycle owners in China since 1978 provided the greatest increase in human mobility in history. Many cities are turning to bicycles for various uses. In the United States, nearly 75 percent of police departments serving populations of 50,000 or more now have routine patrols by bicycle. Bicycle messenger services are common in the world’s larger cities simply because they deliver small parcels more quickly than cars can and at a lower cost. The key to realizing the potential of the bicycle is to create a bicyclefriendly transport system. This means providing both bicycle trails and designated street lanes for bicycles. Among the industrial-country leaders doing so are the Dutch, the Danes, and the Germans. The Netherlands has incorporated a vision of the role of bicycles into a Bicycle Master Plan. In addition to creating bike lanes and trails in all its cities, the system also often gives cyclists the advantage over motorists in right-of-way and at traffic lights. Roughly 30 percent of all urban trips in the Netherlands are on bicycle, compared with 1 percent in the United States. Both the Netherlands and Japan have made a concerted effort to integrate bicycles and rail commuter services by providing bicycle parking at rail stations, making it easier for cyclists to commute by train. In Japan, the use of bicycles for commuting to rail transportation has reached the point where some stations have invested in vertical, multi-level parking garages for bicycles, much as is often done for automobiles. The combination of rail and bicycle, and particularly their integration into a single, overall transport system, makes a city eminently more livable than one that relies almost exclusively on private automobiles. Noise, pollution, congestion, and frustration are all lessened. We and Earth are both healthier.

Can Nuclear Power Be Green? by Jason Mark Situated on a tall sea cliff above pounding waves, the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant enjoys the kind of stunning ocean view typical of Central California’s rugged coast. Rolling hills — bright green in winter, fading to gold by summer — surround two Westinghouse reactors that generate electricity for 1.6 million homes. Pacific Ocean waters cool the uranium rods that power the plant’s 4-Loop turbines. Voles, coyotes, and bobcats roam the meadows and oak glens stretching for miles behind the power station. The sound of the surf obscures any electricity hum. A generation ago, the scene wasn’t as calm. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Diablo Canyon was at the center of a national grassroots movement against nuclear power. Inspired by the mass protests organized at the Seabrook power plant in New Hampshire, thousands of California residents struggled for years to halt the construction of Diablo, which they said was too dangerous, given that a major geological fault lies just three miles away. In 1978, some 1,500 people demonstrated at the plant gates to demand a halt in construction; a year later, the number of protestors had tripled. By September 1981, the crowds had swelled to 20,000, and 1,960 people were arrested as they sought to occupy the construction site. It was the largest mass arrest in the history of the US anti-nuclear struggle.

T

oday the mood toward nuclear power may be changing. Atomic energy — once the bête noir of the environmental movement — is receiving a second look from many dedicated ecologists who are suggesting that, in a world threatened by climate change, splitting the atom may be preferable to burning the carbon. Many people are beginning to wonder: Can nuclear power be green? Nuclear industry officials, who have long sought to resuscitate their flagging businesses, are eagerly fueling the debate as they seek to position their reactors as a solution to global warming. Nuclear power promoters are feeling more bullish than they have in years. Industry insiders expect that utilities will file applications with federal regulators for about 30 new atomic reactors by the end of the year. The possibility of a nuclear power renaissance is causing strains in the environmental movement as organizations and individuals grapple with the pros and cons of using nuclear power to check carbon emissions. A number of prominent environmentalists — among them Whole Earth Catalog founder Stewart Brand, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jared Diamond, and Gaia-theory promoter James Lovelock — have come out in favor of atomic energy as a response to climate change. Among mainline US environmental groups, there is nearly unanimity that nuclear power remains as bad an idea today as it was during the heyday of the Diablo Canyon protests. But at the grassroots level, opinion is split. As one green blogger has written: “We environmentalists must rethink our opposition to nuclear power. Those who have opposed the building of new nuclear power plants in the US over the past twenty years have actually forced the use of a filthy alternative — coal combustion — that releases millions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.”

Some environmentalists argue that resistance to nuclear energy has forced the construction of a worse alternative — coal-fired power plants. Such sentiments reveal the degree to which the all-consuming threat of planetary climate change is altering green politics, forcing dedicated environmentalists to re-examine their beliefs about how best to defend the Earth. Since any deliberation about trade-offs is fundamentally a discussion of priorities, the debate over nuclear power is, at its heart, part of a much larger argument about how to balance ecological sustainability with our lifestyle expectations. Whether environmentalists decide to support nuclear power will play a large role in influencing the shape of the emerging 21st-century green economy. “I think it’s a metaphor for how our country will move into the future,” says Betsy Taylor, the former head of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service and founder of The Center for a New American Dream. “It gets back to the debate about whether we want an economy and an energy system that is highly centralized and benefits the few, versus an economy and an energy system that is more locally rooted and that unleashes the creativity and the economic ownership of our energy by many more small owners, businesses and even households. … There has been a fight over who benefits and who matters. With nuclear power, there was this idea that a small group of people would take care of everything.”

Back from the Dead By the mid-1990s, it appeared that the US nuclear industry was destined for a long, steady funeral. Federal officials had not licensed a new plant since 1973, and the last plant to come on line, Watts Bar in Tennessee, had taken 22 years to build. Memories of the 1979 Three Mile Island scare, combined with the long shadow of the Chernobyl disaster, had the industry on the defensive. Public support for nuclear power was near an all-time low, with just 40 percent of respondents to an industry poll saying they were in favor of atomic energy. Major cost overruns in plant construction had made the industry unpopular on Wall Street, which wasn’t enthusiastic about funding any new multi-billion-dollar power stations. Then the Bush administration threw nuclear power a lifeline. Embedded in the 2005 Energy Bill was a provision granting the nuclear industry $10 billion in new tax credits and loan guarantees; $200 million was set aside for the first utilities that filed applications for new plants. The subsidies allowed utilities, insurance companies, and investors to begin rethinking nuclear power’s future. continues next page www.spiritofchange.org

the Colon Cleansing Kitâ&#x201E;˘ ($89.50) by A 9 day program guaranteed to remove old intestinal debris

O

n October, 27th 2004 we received this letter from one of the tens-of-thousands of people who have taken our Colon Cleansing Kit. He writes:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Blessed Herbs, this was an email I sent to my family and friends after my amazing experience. Since then, six of them have done your cleanse. This is what I wrote... Friends, about a month ago, brother Jon sent me a link to blessedherbs.com. He asked me if I knew anything about their Colon Cleansing Kit. I had always been interested in cleansing but had never actually participated in a program. After spending time on their website, I ordered the kit. I just finished the program and wanted to share my experience with you. It is estimated that the average person carries 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;10 pounds of intestinal buildup in their intestines and colon. It is a hard coating of putrification that releases toxins into the bloodstream and prevents us from effectively absorbing vitamins and minerals into our system. It is one of the reasons that many people feel hungry all the time and crave stronger and stronger flavors. As a fifteen year vegetarian and life-long non-smoker, non-drinker...I thought the Colon Cleansing Kit would be good for me, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect that much old waste removal. Boy, was I mistaken. First of all, I followed the program to the letter. It is eight days...the first three are a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-cleanseâ&#x20AC;? getting you ready for a five-day liquid-only herbal fast. There are two herbal elements to the cleanse. The first is Digestive Stimulator capsules that help you get the bowels moving. The second is Toxin Absorber powder. It includes psyllium husk (an intestinal broom...not unlike Metamucilâ&#x201E;˘ but totally herbal), bentonite clay (absorbs forty times its weight in toxins and pulls the buildup from the walls of the intestinal tract), apple pectin and ginger root (anti-bloating and adds flavour to the drink). During the five-day fast, you take the Toxin Absorber with organic apple juice five times a day, three hours apart. Before bedtime you take the Digestive Stimulator. In addition you drink 6â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8 glasses of pure (distilled water) a day. You can also drink additional apple juice and vegetable broth during the day if desired. I never felt hungry during the five days.

58 Spirit of Change | FALL 2008

I sit here on the morning of the sixth day (waiting to break my fast with an organic apple) and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel hungry whatsoever. Anyway, the program suggests that you start seeing old waste on the second day of the fast. That is exactly what happened to me. It was absolutely amazing to see what was being removed.

These photos show bowel movement containing old intestinal debris passed while taking the Colon Cleansing Kitâ&#x201E;˘ ($89.50). This old debris can form a hard coating that builds up on the walls of your intestines and may release toxins into the bloodstream.

I thought it would start to slow down during the fast, but yesterday was actually the heaviest removal. Lest you think that you spend the day in the bathroom, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry. There was never a time where I felt a sense of urgency. In addition, it is a very pleasant experience (not violent at all) and you barely need to wipe yourself. There is no burning or rawness that would normally be associated with diarrhea. Sorry for all the details, but it has been a life-changing experience. I played tennis on days 3, 4 and 5 and it was the best I had played in years. My energy and overall sense of well-being is quite extraordinary. In addition (although they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t advertise it as such) I lost seventeen pounds. Thanks, Jon, for sending me the link. I would encourage any of you to do it and counsel that if you do, do it by the letter. I did, and felt like I received the maximum benefit.â&#x20AC;? 8SSVHIVXLI'SPSR'PIERWMRK/MX  GEPP [IFXXX#MFTTFE)FSCTDPN 3VHIVWTPEGIH[MXLMRX[SQSRXLWSJXLMWEHKIX PGGXJUIUIJTQSPNPUJPOBMDPEF

The industry now had the money; what it needed was an argument. According to a 2005 ABC News survey, only one-third of Americans approved of â&#x20AC;&#x153;building more nuclear plants to generate electricity.â&#x20AC;? Nuclear proponents needed a way of convincing people that atomic energy deserved a second shot. Enter climate change. While nuclear power generation isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely carbon neutral â&#x20AC;&#x201D; uranium mining, and especially uranium enrichment, require vast amounts of fossil fuel energy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; atomic plants are certainly cleaner, at least from a carbon standpoint, than natural gas or coal-fired power stations. Posing nuclear energy as a response to global warming seemed a useful way to re-introduce nuclear power to a public that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been forced to think about it for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re serious about carbon emissions, you have to be serious about nuclear power,â&#x20AC;? says Craig Nesbit, a spokesman for Exelon Energy, a Chicago-based company that is planning to submit applications for new reactors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet carbon goals without nuclear power. It cannot be done. There is no other technology that can do what nuclear does, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produce large amounts of electricity 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with no carbon emissions.â&#x20AC;? To help make this argument more compelling, the Nuclear Energy Institute, an industry group, gave PR firm Hill & Knowlton an $8 million contract to reframe the issue in the media. The PR consultants created an organization called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clean and Safe Energy Coalition,â&#x20AC;? and enlisted former EPA chief Christine Todd Whitman and Greenpeace co-founder (and corporate consultant) Patrick Moore to chair it. Hill & Knowlton helped Moore and Whitman pen opinion essays that found their way into influential newspapers such as The Boston Globe and The Washington Post, which in turn ignited a torrent of other media stories. Moore has been an especially effective voice for the nuclear industry. By highlighting his rabble-rousing days with Greenpeace, Moore has been able to portray his embrace of nuclear power as a Damascus-road style conversion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I was an opponent of nuclear energy all through my Greenpeace years,â&#x20AC;? Moore says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when I do the math, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very clear to me that renewables canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the job themselves, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why nuclear has to be part of the mix. â&#x20AC;Ś As an environmentalist, I choose nuclear.â&#x20AC;? Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretensions to high-mindedness may be disingenuous; he is, after all, a paid flack for the nuclear industry. And â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as his public support of pesticide spraying, genetically modified organisms, and logging make clear â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he is a long way from his Rainbow Warrior days. Some in the environmental community have labeled Moore an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eco-Judas,â&#x20AC;? to which he responds that no one has â&#x20AC;&#x153;any right in the world to define who is and who is not an environmentalist.â&#x20AC;? Regardless of Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green credentials, the fact is that in politics, perception is everything, and Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carefully calculated stumping in favor of nuclear power has succeeding in shifting discussion on the issue. Twenty-five years ago, the buzzwords in the nuclear debate were â&#x20AC;&#x153;safetyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;sustainability;â&#x20AC;? today they are â&#x20AC;&#x153;coalâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;carbon.â&#x20AC;? That, at least, is how Stewart Brand sees it. While Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support of nuclear energy seems like little more than sophisticated greenwashing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear versus coal. Climate change is the worst thing that can happen to biodiversity. It puts the environmental movement in a different position. Suddenly, worrying about radiation 6,000 years from now kind of goes down the list.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stewart Brand


more difficult to dismiss the carefully considered arguments of Brand, who is a founder of the Whole Earth Catalog. “Some people have said it’s nuclear versus renewables or it’s nuclear versus conservation,” Brand says. “But it’s the [electricity] grid we are talking about, so it’s nuclear versus coal. Across the board, comparing the problems of spent nuclear fuel and spent coal fuel, it’s 1,000 or 100 to one, in terms of nuclear being more safe…Climate change is the worst thing that can happen to biodiversity. It puts the environmental movement in a different situation. It changes priorities. Suddenly, worrying about radiation 6,000 years from now kind of goes down the list.” Among leading environmentalists, Brand is not alone in his cautious embrace of nuclear power. Dr. Bill Chameides, chief scientist at Environmental Defense, also says that nuclear energy deserves a fair shot. While careful to say that the nuclear industry must be able to compete without government subsidies, Chameides is open to keeping the technology an option. “Given the potential of generating energy carbon-free from nuclear, I think it’s disingenuous for someone concerned about climate change to say it should be taken off the table,” he says. “My feeling is: If you want to build a couple of new plants, I think it’s foolhardy. But I don’t see it as being a disaster.” These voices, among others, have had a demonstrable impact in influencing opinion. A chorus of pundits, among them New York Times columnists Thomas Friedman and Nicholas Kristoff, have said it’s time to expand nuclear power production to head off carbon emissions. Some members of Congress are rethinking their position. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has long been a skeptic about nuclear energy. But she appears to be shifting, and recently said in a statement that, “If we can be assured that new technologies help to produce nuclear energy safely and cleanly, then I think we have to take a look at it.” Al Gore says nuclear should be a “small part” of the climate solution.

Dirty, Dangerous, and Expensive Even as debate churns in the newspapers, there is a striking amount of unanimity among the leading environmental organizations that nuclear power does not represent a smart way to address climate change. The National Wildlife Federation, the Union of Concerned Scientists, and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) are among the many groups arguing there are quicker and cheaper ways to reduce greenhouse gases. What the industry heralds as a “revival,” these groups dub a “relapse.” “Nuclear power is the most expensive way to make minor emissions cuts,” says Michael Mariotte, executive director of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service. “You add this to all of nuclear power’s other problems — safety and proliferation and radioactive waste — and it’s not a good solution.” Josh Dorner, a spokesperson for the Sierra Club, agrees. “It’s kind of like the industry is putting lipstick on a pig here,” he says. “Solving one problem and creating another problem really isn’t a solution that’s very durable. It doesn’t make sense to solve global warming by creating a ton of nuclear waste that we don’t know what to do with.” More than 50 years after the establishment of the civilian atomic energy program, the country still lacks a way to safely handle the radioactive waste formed during the fission process. All of the radioactive materials created during electricity generation are stored at the individual power stations, an arrangement that no one — including the nuclear plant operators — believes is a long-term solution. “Long-term” in this case means 10,000 years, the amount of time the government says a waste repository needs to contain spent nuclear fuel. Many environmentalists say even that mind-boggling geological time frame is too short, since some waste will be dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years more. Industry representatives and federal officials have fought to build a single national nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in the Nevada desert. Recent studies, however, show that the mountain, formerly believed to be bone dry, may leak water, which would make it an unacceptable vault. Another major concern about waste storage is the problem of relocating tons of spent fuel to Yucca Mountain, a logistical nightmare that invites deadly accidents. The most optimistic scenario doesn’t envision Yucca Mountain’s opening until 2021. The industry could reduce the need for waste storage by “reprocessing” the fuel, but that would lead to another problem — the creation of weaponsgrade radioactive material. While the industry has made real improvements in plant management and design since the Three Mile Island near-meltdown, post-911 fears have created a new set of safety worries. There is, first, the possibility of a terrorist attack on a plant. continues next page www.spiritofchange.org

FALL 2008 | Spirit of Change 59


The Fission Division: Can Nuclear Power Be Green? continued from page 59 Then there’s the worry about nuclear materials falling into the wrong hands. Spent nuclear fuel can be used to make so-called “dirty bombs.” Reprocessed fuel in the form of enriched uranium or plutonium can make atomic weapons. More plants means more opportunities for atomic materials to slip out of a reactor unnoticed. The challenges around waste storage and safety force a third and more pressing issue: cost. Even with the government subsidies, nuclear power is not cheap. The complicated reactors cost between $2.5 and $4 billion each; the Watts Bar plant was years behind schedule and ended up with a price tag of $7 billion. The capital costs of atomic expansion are so high that one nuclear executive told The New York Times that his CFO “would have a heart attack” if he proposed constructing a new reactor. From a market standpoint, constructing new plants does not appear economically competitive. Most estimates put nuclear-generated electricity at around 8 to 11 cents/kilowatt-hour (kWh). By comparison, wind prices currently average 5 cents/kWh. Energy efficiency improvements — for example, swapping out incandescent lightbulbs for compact fluorescents — cost less than 4 cents/kWh. “Just financially, it won’t happen,” says Geoff Fettus, a senior attorney at the NRDC. “The question we pose to people is not whether you are for or against nuclear power, but whether you are for or against new subsidies for nuclear power. We think they are a terrible waste of money. If you move away from the subsidies for nuclear, the debate ends right there.” The very challenges of financing and building new reactors reduce the potential for atomic energy to make a meaningful dent in carbon emissions. Currently 104 nuclear power plants produce about 20 percent of the United States’ electricity. To make a real reduction in US carbon emissions would require building as many as 250 additional power plants. To make significant cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions, the world’s nations would need to build 21 new reactors every year for the next 50 years. Given that it takes about 10 years to build a nuclear reactor, the first new nuclear plants wouldn’t start contributing to carbon reductions until 2017. Too late to be effective, if you accept NASA climate scientist James Hansen’s prediction that we have a decade to take action. A June 2007 statement by the Union of Concerned Scientists sums up the sentiments of the major environmental organizations: “There are faster, safer, and significantly cheaper ways to meet our energy needs. Nuclear power is not a current solution for global warming.”

The Lesser of Two Evils? The anti-nuclear consensus among environmental policy professionals, however, does not extend to the grassroots. Rank-and-file environmentalists are divided on whether building new reactors can serve as an antidote to spiraling greenhouse gas emissions. While there is not quite a vocal grassroots movement in favor of green nuclear power, the ambivalence among many environmental activists shows that the nuclear industry’s hopes for convincing Americans to embrace atomic energy are not unwarranted. A review of some of the most popular green news and opinion Web sites reveals a lively discussion about the merits of expanding nuclear power generation. For example, when Grist.org asked readers, “In the light of the mounting threat of climate change, does nuclear power deserve another look?”, 54 percent of respondents voted “Yes.” A poll on Treehugger.com showed 59 percent of readers conditionally in favor of atomic energy. Whenever the issue comes up in green forums, an energetic back-andforth ensues. During one online discussion, a visitor to a blog hosted by Earthjustice Legal Defense wrote: “I have been an ardent foe of nuclear power generation for over three decades.…However, in the last two years I have reversed my position, and now support the building of a new generation of nuclear plants in the USA. The reason is that global warming is such a huge and imminent issue, that I think we must accept the lesser evil of nuclear power generation.” When the subject came up on the Web site WorldChanging.com, readers 60 Spirit of Change | FALL 2008

were split roughly 50-50. One wrote: “Folks, the 100,000 year fear of nuclear waste…is a non sequitur when we hold the fate of our children’s future in our hands before 2040.…Centralized nuclear power is our children’s option and we have a responsibility to help them prepare for whatever they will have to do to survive.” The willingness of some environmentalists to expand nuclear power production can be explained, in part, by the fact that the issue has been out of mainstream debate for so long. The environmental policy analysts’ arguments — however well-honed they may be — have not received a hearing from the public in decades. The industry’s arguments, on the other hand, have earned a great deal of attention lately. The nuclear industry’s media offensive means that green groups are playing catch-up. “It’s difficult when you are going up against a well-financed PR campaign,” says Jim Riccio of Greenpeace USA, which is staunchly opposed to building any new reactors, “especially when most of the major groups are focused on climate change right now, and not focused as much on nuclear power. It has been the nuclear industry’s attempt to play up on that.” The green grassroots’ interest in nuclear power can also be explained by demographics. For an entire generation of environmental advocates, nuclear power is an unknown. The vanguard of the climate justice movement largely comprises college activists who have never had to confront the arguments for and against nuclear energy. “I think the issue is off the radar for a lot of people,” says Tyler Dawson, a student at Ohio University and an active member of the Campus Climate Challenge. “I would say that a lot of students, if they don’t understand how nuclear works, they at least know there is a danger to it. But I’ve heard from a lot of students who say, ‘You know, Europe and France run a lot of nuclear.’ They have heard that nuclear power doesn’t produce any greenhouse gas emissions….The issue is received differently by different people.” When not studying for a degree in political science, Dawson is busy campaigning to stop mountaintop removal coal mining and to increase his campus’s use of renewable energy. Until very recently, nuclear politics did not touch his activism. Dawson was born in 1986 — the same year as the Chernobyl disaster. “I work with a lot of young people, and they don’t have the same kind of experience and memory of working with nuclear power,” says Matt Reitman, 23, a recent Syracuse University graduate now employed by the Energy Justice Network. “The people I’m working with have never formed an opinion on the issue because they have never been confronted with the issue. So now they are saying, ‘I want to learn about it, I want to talk about it and hear the pros and cons.’” Climate activists’ nuclear curiosity presents a real challenge to the country’s environmental leadership. Thanks to its PR attack, the nuclear industry appears to have the rhetorical advantage for now. If the debate is carbon-heavy coal versus carbon-light nuclear, the atomic argument will win. The task facing the environmental movement, then, is to start a different discussion. Environmental groups need to shift the conversation away from an argument of specific carbon reduction strategies and toward a broader discussion about long-term ecological sustainability. Given the urgency of the climate crisis, that won’t be easy.

Toward a Culture Shift Embedded in the energy debate is a deeper discussion of expectations and ecology. That is, what kind of world do we want to live in? The argument over nuclear power reveals a long-standing tension in the environmental movement between those who say there are technical fixes to the greenhouse gas challenge, and others who believe that we need a wholesale restructuring of society if we are to avoid global meltdown. To embrace a new round of nuclear reactor construction is to say that we can have our climate and eat all the energy we want, too; it is, in some ways, a maintenance of the status quo. To oppose nuclear power is to suggest that we need to reform the ways in which we live. For if we can find a way to create lifestyles that don’t demand as much electricity, then the nuclear question is moot.


The notion of reducing the US’s energy usage is laughable to those in the industry. “We have never seen a decrease in electricity use,” Excelon Energy’s Nesbit says. “To think otherwise is just putting your head in the sand. We can slow the growth of demand, but we are not going to reverse it.” Many environmentalists, however, see reducing electricity use as the easiest — and cheapest — way to cut carbon emissions. For example, Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute has convincingly demonstrated that we can maintain many of our modern conveniences while using a fraction of the energy we currently expend. “I would argue that it’s entirely possible to close the nuclear plants, close the vast majority of fossil fuel plants, and use renewables and energy efficiency to meet our energy needs to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050, and nobody’s lifestyle has to change,” says Mariotte of the Nuclear Information Research Service. The dilemma for environmental organizations is that the word “conservation” is sometimes interpreted to mean a “compromise” — and asking Americans to sacrifice some of their lifestyle has become the untouchable third rail of US environmentalism. “If you say something like that [cutting back on energy consumption], you sound almost un-American,” Greenpeace’s Riccio says. When asked whether energy conservation would require Americans to change their manner of living, Josh Dorner of the Sierra Club was careful to distance his organization from any suggestion of discomfort: “I think it’s about changing the backdrop as opposed to changing the fundamentals. Instead of people having a ton of lights on in their house that are wasting a ton of energy, they will have a lot of efficient lights on that are wasting less energy. … People will be able to continue living their lives without having to make big sacrifices.” Other environmental activists aren’t so sure. They say that long-term sustainability — a vision that doesn’t include radioactive waste stored for hundreds of generations — will require some deeper changes. If we want to preserve the climate without relying on atomic energy, we will need to re-think many of lifestyle assumptions — our modes of transportation, our ways of eating, the size of our houses, and the generation and distribution of our energy. “As we make the arguments over nuclear energy, I think we’re about to re-enter the historic debate about how power is structured,” says veteran activist Betsy Taylor, author of Sustainable Planet: Solutions for a 21st Century. “If you look at the nuclear story in particular, it was always this utopian vision that we would take care of everything — we could have our American way of life and not worry about energy. And when we got into that dream, it had some real darkness to it.…I do think we are coming back to the old celebration of self-reliance and alternative technology at the local level. If we have a future with less oil and less nuclear, we will live differently, with less stuff and less energy consumption, but with more joy and more security. But we will have to rethink the McMansions and the two SUVs in the garage.” Energy Justice Network organizer Reitman agrees. “I think we are going to have to face some kind of cultural shift,” he says. “I think the culture we have created for ourselves, a society based on a lot of excess and consumerism, really has let a lot of people down. I think the prospect of getting together in a serious way as a country [to stop climate change] is a great opportunity to get back to the roots of what it means to be an American, which is to be neighborly. It’s a great way to re-energize our culture, as well as our economy and our power grid.” That kind of vision makes nuclear power irrelevant. If we can reach a societal consensus that what we desire is a slower and smaller way of living, a re-conceived notion of success, then we can fundamentally reformulate our energy system. In any discussion involving a redefinition of “progress,” nuclear power is not simply dangerous or dirty — it’s pointless. That’s a conversation the nuclear industry is unlikely to win. “If we’re going to make it safely into the future,” Taylor says, “we want to reclaim the vision of energy production and of an economy that is primarily rooted locally, even though there will be and should be a global system of trade and the most amazing technological developments. But above all there should be energy production and economic production that is controlled by people in their communities.”

FALL 2008 | Spirit of Change 61


Music Reviews by Jason Victor Serinus

Pamela Thorby and Andrew Lawrence-King Garden of Early Delights Linn SACD (CKD 291)

Marcin Wasilewski Trio January ECM (CD: BPP10818-02) Exquisite is a word I once reserved for the subtle beauties of classical song. Then I began to listen to ECM Grammy Award-winning producer Manfred Eicher’s jazz recordings, and my perspective changed. I can’t vouch for yours, but I feel confident that the rarefied atmosphere of the opening five tracks on this CD may very well take your breath away. And that includes the trio’s cover of Prince’s 1991 “Diamonds and Pearls,” as well as sublime renditions of music by Gary Peacock, Ennio Morricone, contemporary trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, and pianist/trio founder Marcin Wasilewski. Wasilewski, who was 32 when the trio recorded January in New York in April 2007, began playing jazz with double-bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz at age 15, when both attended the same high school. Drummer Michal Miskiewicz joined them soon thereafter, in 1993. Naming themselves the Simple Acoustic Trio, they won a number of awards before going international in 2004, when their debut release on ECM won the Quarterly Prize of the German Record Critics. Now, under their new name, the trio moves to the forefront of intelligent, subtle jazz. The touch is light, the mastery of color and trust in space between notes supreme. Even when the trio gets a move on, as it begins to do in Carla Bley’s “King Korn” and a few other tracks, the lightness and grace remain. Every choice bespeaks genius and transcendent beauty.

Aruna Sairam Divine Inspiration World Village (468074) There’s no better way to gain perspective than to listen to the real thing. For Westerners accustomed to thinking that the vocal avatar of the New Age is an air brushed young woman with blue eyes, pink skin, and a limited harmonic vocabulary, this album is a revelation. Aruna Sairam is a renowned exponent of the Karnatic tradition of south Indian spiritual song, a style less known in the West than northern Indian classical music. Sairam invokes love with a vibrato-less, slightly hoarse, nasal style of Sanskrit vocalization that bespeaks a life of devotion. An amazing artist, whose virtuosity inspires wonder, her low-pitched instrument seems to possess infinite flexibility. She not only traverses microtonal runs at the same impossibly fast tempo that the amazing J. Vaidyanathan plays the double-headed mridanagam (drum), but does so with a vitality that reflects her unshakable faith in the spiritual tradition at the heart of her song. “When you trust reason to me,” says Arjuna, “I soon arise to rescue you from the ocean of death and rebirth. Focus your mind on me, let your understanding enter me; then you will dwell in me without doubt.” For those raised in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the notion of meditative surrender resonates. So does the voice of Aruna Sairam, whose singing encompasses repertoire that dates back to the 8th century AD.

62 Spirit of Change | Fall 2008

Recorder player Pamela Thorby and harp and psaltery virtuoso Andrew Lawrence-King’s wonderfully recorded disc of renaissance and baroque music is a delight. The consistently entrancing program also scores points for its state-of-the-art, high-resolution SACD (super audio compact disc) format and DSD (direct stream digital) recording process, which together yield remarkable clarity on regular CD players and create a realistic surround environment on multi-channel systems. Thorby plays renaissance or “ganassi” versions of soprano, alto and tenor recorders. Lawrence-King chooses copies of Italian baroque triple harp, Zurberan’s double harp, and renaissance psaltery. The instrumental composers are less strict with authenticity, with the English following Italian fashion, and the French incorporating elements of Neapolitan and Venetian style. Many were pioneers, attempting to touch listeners on emotional levels previously thought possible only through vocal music liberally spiced with dramatic recitation. The music is thus new in every sense, including early examples of what we would now call “walking bass.” Diego Ortiz, Dario Castello, Johann Schop, Giovanni Bassano, Giovanni Battista Fontana, and Biagio Marini may not be known outside early music circles, but their efforts bring great pleasure. From the droll, faux naïveté of Jacob Van Eyck’s “Wat zal men op den Avond doen” to the characteristically mournful tone of John Dowland’s “Sorrow, sorrow stay” and “Weep you no more,” Thorby and Lawrence-King approach their virtuosic repertoire with consummate ease and joyful hearts.

Lara Jai Unlock the Mystery Light Heart (LH0701) I was well on my way to review Sacred Blessings, a fine New Age compilation assembled by Anthony Robbins replete with tracks by name artists, when I took a deeper listen to independent artist Lara Jai’s lovely freshman CD, Unlock The Mystery. Immediately I was hooked. Gifted with an extremely fine, captivating soprano whose vibration bespeaks sincerity and devotion, Lara Jai sings seven original compositions, a New Age version of a traditional Spanish song, and a Sanskrit chant. She also plays Celtic harp, synthesizer, tamboura, and finger cymbals, enlisting support from other fine musicians who play a wide assortment of instruments that includes tabla, gadulka, flute, 12-string guitar, and cello. Based in Colorado, Lara Jai grew up among horses in Wyoming. Actively involved in wildlife conservation for much of her life, she found inspiration for this album while spending seven years in semi-isolation in a cabin in the mountains of Colorado. Given the purity and love she shares through her music, it comes as no surprise that the CD is dedicated to Amma, a divine teacher and healer whose “sole mission is to serve one and all.” After you check out the sound clips at larajai.com, you too are likely to want to bathe in the bliss of Unlock The Mystery. There’s a special integrity to this music that makes for joyful listening.

The Orlando Consort and Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir Scattered Rhymes Harmonia Mundi SACD (HMU 807469)

Johannes Brahms Chamber Choir A German Requiem (Ein Deutsches Requiem) Telarc (CD and SACD-80701) Is it any wonder that recordings of Brahms’ choral masterpiece abound? Written for the concert hall rather than a church setting, the work’s biblical texts concern themselves, not with salvation from sin, but with the comfort, peace and joy that spring from transcendence (aka “deliverance”) of the pain and tribulations of death. Hence the ecstatic, thrilling choral crescendos of “joy and rapture” that conclude the second movement; the transcendent beauty of the calm center movement (“Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen” [How lovely is thy dwelling place]); and the sweet transport of the great soprano solo, “Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit,” which ends with the words, “I will comfort you, as one whom his mother comforts.” Although it may not displace the classic recording by Otto Klemperer and the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus, Robert Spano and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus do a marvelous job with the work. After all, the ASO Chorus received its initial training from the late, great Robert Shaw, and sings as though inspired. As might be expected, Telarc delivers superb sound, with the option of high-resolution SACD surround; the dynamics and climaxes are especially thrilling. Twyla Robinson’s delivery may be too grand for the soprano solo, but the gorgeously voiced baritone Mariusz Kwiecien ranks with the best. Those who have never heard this heavenly music may find their lives transformed.

This marvelous disc of ancient and modern music, much of it sacred, takes its name from contemporary composer Tarik O’Regan’s eponymous composition. Completed in 2006, when he was 28, O’Regan’s 16-minute Scattered Rhymes for unaccompanied male vocal quartet and choir receives inspiration from Guillaume de Machaut’s astonishingly modernsounding Messe de Nostre Dame. Probably composed in the 1360s, it is not only the first complete mass setting we know of, but also one of the earliest examples of polyphony (independent lines of music that weave around and through each other to create a unified sonic fabric). In addition to two compositions by O’Regan and the works by Machaut that inspired them, the CD contains a recent work by Gavin Bryars along with the 15th century composition by Guillaume Dufay from which it springs. The music is wondrous. The singing is of the highest order. The superb UK-based Orlando Consort (a countertenor, two tenors, and baritone), founded in 1988, is paired with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, especially known for its recordings of the spiritual music of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and Veljo Tormis. Now under the direction of Paul Hillier, founder of the renowned Hilliard Ensemble, choir members sing with a soaring, innocent resonance that inspires the deepest respect. This disc will likely be in the running for multiple awards later in the year.

Book Reviews by Gail Lord

Brett Bevell The Reiki Magic Guide to SelfAttunement Crossing Press/Ten Speed, Berkeley, CA 2007 $14.95

Horst M. Rechelbacher Minding Your Business: Profits that Restore the Planet Earth Aware Editions, San Rafael CA, 2008 $24.95 Horst Rechelbacher is one of the original pioneers of eco-preneurship. Founder of the hugely successful Aveda (his first company) he now runs Intelligent Nutrients, the first 100% organic food-based cosmetic company. His vision of sustainability is a business model that is ethical, earth-conscious and restorative. In Minding Your Business Rechelbacher shares the holistic values and practices on which he bases both his business and personal life. Take daily inner inventory and simply observe what may need to be changed; visualize success and offer prayers of gratitude to manifest goals. “Our ability to manifest sustainable success depends on the degree to which our vision or goal serves a larger need or greater good and links us to others and the world around us.” The businesses of today and tomorrow can honor humanity by healing the planet. As eco-consumers we can refuse to support non-sustainable businesses and ultimately cause their extinction.

Reiki tradition dictates that for each level of Reiki training individuals must be attuned by a Reiki master before properly working with this universal healing energy. As a traditionally trained Reiki Master, Brett Bevell respects the Reiki linage. But he also feels, for the good of the planet, Reiki’s transformative powers should be available to all people, not just to those who can afford the training. The Reiki Magic Guide to Self-Attunement is a clearly illustrated guide that extends the healing art of Reiki to everyone. Stressing the book’s intent is not to train people for working on a professional level, Bevell unwraps the twenty-one mysterious empowering Reiki symbols. He focuses on properly preparing for the attunement experience, and the importance of fully integrating the energy of each symbol. He encourages a commitment to charity, or to giving several hours of Reiki to the planet, to complete the energy exchange.

Kevin Danaher, Shannon Biggs and Jason Mark Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grass Roots PoliPointPress/Global Exchange, Sausalito, CA, 2007 $16.95 Earth and her inhabitants have endured much in our current capitalist culture, our economy built on extraction and destructive corporate practices. But as human rights advocate Van Jones reminds, “Dr. King did not say, ‘I have a complaint.’ He said, ‘I have a dream.’” Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grass Roots is a collection of stories of real people who followed their dreams for a greener solution. Here are actual accounts of the unlikely heroes and heroines of the green movement who simply asked, “What can I do?” The Rosebud Sioux became leaders in eco-energy technology by constructing the first Native-owned and operated wind turbine on reservation land, at the same time honoring the sacred winds and environmental values of the tribe. The parents of Tony Behun took action after their 11-year old son died from riding his bike through toxic sludge which was legally spread on a Pennsylvania mountain-top. And the farmers of Dakota took on the world’s largest supplier of bioengineered seeds and herbicides, the multinational Monsanto corporation, after the farmers learned it was illegal to collect and save seeds (the technology in the genetically modified seeds belonged to Monsanto and collecting seeds was seed theft). Through their role as “movement storytellers” the authors of Building the Green Economy illustrate the need to shift from a culture where value is determined by a price tag and become a sustainable culture which values community connections, participatory democracy and social justice. A new green society needs to be one in which no one is exploited and no one is left behind, one where we claim the powerful role of citizen. www.spiritofchange.org

Why the Dalai Lama Matters: His Act of Truth as the Solution for China, Tibet and the World Atria/Beyond Words, New York, NY 2008 $24.00 His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama believes in “a common human religion of kindness.” He is dedicated to unity and non-violence, even as the Tibetan people suffer under fifty years of oppression by the Chinese government. In Why the Dalai Lama Matters Tibetan scholar Robert Thurman explains just who the Dalai Lama is, what he means to the people of Tibet, and why he matters to the world. A friend to the Dalai Lama for over 45-years, Dr. Thurman identifies the current compelling global need to end the complicated crisis in Tibet immediately. He presents a five-part plan for the future success of China and President Hu, step one being the reinstatement of Tibet as an autonomous region. He also presents a five-step response from the Dalai Lama, including service as a goodwill ambassador for China. The plan, while hopeful, is not impossible. “It is our duty and obligation to cultivate hope.”

Marks, Inc./Water Voices, Inc., Edgartown, MA 2008 $49.50 (large format) The United Nation’s goal for meeting the internationally agreed targets for water and sanitation is the year 2015. In support of the U.N.’s Water for Life Decade, Water Voices from Around the World is the expression of a truly diverse group. Reflecting the mysteries, sacredness and need for the world com-

munity to respect water are letters and articles from 77 authors ranging from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, to Mikhail Gorbachev to Pete Seeger. Deep water wisdom is revealed through the letters; each correspondence is addressed To People of the World. Included are 400 captivating photographs illustrating the beauty and magnificence of the precious water on our planet. And to represent those who have no words, a collection of wildlife Water Voices photographs are captioned simply “Silent water voices — we hear you.” This important compilation has been honored with the Independent Publishers 2008 gold medal for “Book Most Likely to Save the Planet.”

Maggie Oman Shannon Prayers for Hope and Comfort: Reflections, Meditations and Inspirations Conari Press, San Francisco, CA, 2008 $15.95 Maggie Oman Shannon was experiencing a low point in her life while she was working on this book. Nothing tragic, just a feeling of overwhelm that came from having challenging situations in various areas of her life converge at the same time. She noticed how she found it hard to pray; she was busy focusing on her to-do list. But when she finally did stop, she found comfort in releasing her worries and heartbreaks to God. Prayers for Hope and Comfort is a collection of prayers for modern challenges. Some of the selections are quotations, some more formal prayers and some are poems. The inspirations range from the personal to the global, covering individual issues such as illness and addiction, to world issues of poverty and species extinction. As Helen Keller wrote, “Although this world is full of suffering it is also full of the overcoming of it.”

Vanamali Shakti: Realm of the Divine Mother Inner Traditions, Rochester VT 2008 $19.95 In Hindu philosophy, the Braham is the supreme reality beneath both the manifest and unmanifest states of being. Brahman is the source of all form. Because the Brahman itself is formless, and that which is formless can take on any form, Hinduism gives the freedom to worship God in any shape or form. This is the underlying great tolerance found in the Hindu religion. Shakti: Realm of the Divine Mother is a presentation of the female aspect of the Brahman. Shakti, or Devi, the Devine Mother, is the womb of creation. She is the power that manifests, sustains and transforms the universe. From Lakshmi and Parvati to Durga and Kali, Shakti explores more than 30 goddess incarnations of the Shakti force. Through revealing the scriptural aspect of the cosmic mother, each different function of the Hindu female goddesses is represented. Gail Lord is a freelance writer living in Massachusetts.
