This week’s post is by Bronwen Christianos. In my early twenties I experienced an extraordinary shift in consciousness that shaped the rest of my life.

It’s been a while since American school children were told about George Washington and the cherry tree: When he was six years old, the…

Experiencing Injustice: Chris Wilson’s Story

By Celia Coates Some of us in divided America need to know about Chris Wilson’s life now more than ever.

Some Thoughts About Evil

By Celia Coates The first three words of the title, “Some Thoughts About …,” are simple and ordinary, but the fourth word, “Evil,” disturbs the calm.

How To Deal With Pandemic Panic

This post is really needed now. Breaking with WINN’s usual practice, it’s from another website – Charles Eisenstein’s. In “The Coronation” he wrote, “Covid -19 is showing us that when humanity is united in common cause, phenomenally rapid change is possible.” To join in a positive common cause we need to be well informed without…

How To Send (and Receive) Love

By Celia Coates At the end of last week’s post, Love, Healing, and Dr. Gladys, I said I’d publish a post about how to send healing love to another person. Then, as I sat down to write, the title quickly changed to include receiving as well as sending love. They are two sides of the…

How To Cope Now

By Celia Coates Yesterday (March 19th) Americans were told not to “over-react” to the pandemic and the financial crash. What is the right level of reaction to events that seem catastrophic?

A New Grab and Go Kit

by Celia Coates A friend who had a house in the hills outside of Los Angeles kept a “grab and go kit” stashed near the front door in case an earthquake or wildfire forced her to leave in a hurry. It held the usual essentials for a few days away from a home, a home…

A Little Light

By Celia Coates For many people in many places this is a dark time.
