Authenticity

By Ann Allen “This other work you’re doing is just too unusual. People aren’t ready for it. Doctors aren’t ready. If they know you’re doing it, we’re worried they won’t refer patients to any of us. Unless you stop doing it, we’ll have to ask you to leave the group.” I stared back in disbelief…

That Was Then, This Is Now

By Celia Coates Often, I begin to write what will be published in WINN by rummaging around in my own experiences. This post began with something I was feeling last week. I became aware that although, like most of us, I’ve been experiencing a great deal of fear and anger, there was another, quieter discomfort…

Healing Magic

By JUDY and JACK STUCKI Judy wrote: When I started out on my walk, I was puzzling over a lot of issues because we are planning to move from our lovely home and I was looking for some answers. I knew I had to trust the process, but it was becoming frustrating. We have a path…

Towards Radiance

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. Even though this experience has been far and away the most gloriously inspired, powerful, and joyful experience of my life, I was awakened to a duality that catapulted my operating…

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…

Love, Healing and Dr. Gladys

This month she sent out a wonderful letter that is published here as an extra WINN post for March: Dear Friends, As…

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? Few of us have developed strategies for dealing with such a wide-scale set of disasters. In the midst of the stress of all that’s…

Learning About True Healing

By Alexandra Kauffman I am an undergraduate at the University of South Carolina, still in the process of discovering what I’m truly passionate about. I already know for certain that I want to promote good healthcare for people, no matter what form it ends up taking. This past summer, I had the opportunity to take…

How To Deal With Threatening Times

By Brian Luke Seaward  A number of years ago, while in Colorado Springs for an event, I decided to fill up my gas tank for the 90-minute drive back to Boulder. With several credit cards and a one-dollar bill in my wallet, I headed for the nearest gas station and pulled up to a pump….

The Guru: A Story by S. Gustavo Levy

Robert was devastated after his divorce. “At least,” he thought, “there are no children.” He tried devoting more time to his job as an accountant, but he was not deriving any pleasure from dealing with numbers and accounting entries. He loved history, scientific matters and classical music, but it wasn’t enough. Life appeared devoid of…

Many Grandmothers

By Celia Coates It’s been a while – in a 1997 magazine article Molly Giles asked, “Where are the old ladies now?” She described where they were when she was a child, “They used to be everywhere. One sat on every front porch, park bench and bus stop of the town where I grew up….

Consciousness and Healing

By Celia Coates In medical school Rajiv Parti was taught that, “If you can’t touch it, hear it, or see it on a monitor, send it to psych.”  It was a maxim that made sense to him until he died and came back to life. Near Death Experiences (NDEs) such as the one he had,…
