From The Editor

From Celia, WINN’s Editor

The path that led to my creating WINN has been a wandering one.

Although I’ve long been interested in how people can lead good lives, there wasn’t just one place to learn what I wanted to know. So, I’ve studied many things here and there. I received a degree in social work focusing on family therapy and worked for more than 35 years with people struggling with themselves and with the world around them. Like many psychotherapists I kept on looking for more ways – more approaches, trainings, and techniques – that might help me to help them.

In the late 1970’s I became interested in mind/body medicine and the connections between mental health, physical health, and lives lived well. In 1989 when I learned that ISSSEEM had been formed (The Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine), I joined immediately. That truly opened a new world – and I began to learn about the multiple dimensions of reality. I became familiar with the work of Elmer Green, Ph.D., one of the Society’s founders and a scientist, mystic, and pioneer in the development of clinical biofeedback.

In 2007 I became editor of  ISSSEEM’s member newsletter, BRIDGES: From Science to Spirit, guided it to become a magazine, and then in 2015 refocused and renamed it SUBTLE ENERGIES Magazine. Now there is WINN! This online publication is a way to keep gathering and sharing useful information about the material and non-material worlds. The posts will present objective research and real-life experiences about healing, states of consciousness, and psychic events.

My wandering path has led me straight to the belief that we can all live better lives through learning what the mystics, sages, and shamans have known for thousands of years – there are realities beyond this physical world. Those who know this can also gain the great wisdom (“perennial wisdom”) that teaches us that the really good life is centered in love, kindness, creativity, and true generosity. This is What Is Needed Now.
