It marks the longest night of the year, when the Earth is tilting farthest from the sun, and ushers in a new year and the time of growing light. Kelly Brogan, Cornelia Mazzan, Lea

What is Happiness?

by Kelly Brogan, MD As a psychiatrist, one might assume that I have professional insights into the healthful pursuit of this illusory goal. The truth is that mental health in America (and by insidious extension, the world) is about suppressing inconvenient, inappropriate, and decontextualized symptoms of distress rather than promoting a state of contentment and emotional satisfaction. For my patients, happiness looks a lot

For You… Because Giving Makes Us Happy

by Louise Kuo Habakus Note: Scroll down to read about Seth Godin’s The Thanksgiving Reader that you might want to share at one of your holiday dinners.

Happy Conscious Holidays! Upgrading Santa

by Kelly Brogan, MD When I was a kid, my family really got into the theatrics of Christmas. My uncle or father would dress up as Santa Claus, complete with stuffed gut and husky voice, so that we kids could take a sneak peak at him while he unloaded our epic amounts of loot on Christmas Eve.

A Better Alternative to Health Insurance (Really!)

by Louise Kuo Habakus Note: We’ve gotten mostly fantastic feedback on this post about health care sharing ministries but a question is coming up.

Gentle Parenting is Fearless — Episode 87

#87 — Gentle Parenting is Fearless ** October 21, 2015 Guest // Alison Smith ** Host // Carla Atherton Modern parenting can be an exercise in extremes and contradictions.

Your Toolbox for Autism Recovery

by Jerry M. Kantor, CCH, LAc, MMHS Editor’s Note: If your child has an autism diagnosis (or other chronic condition), you will know what it means to get well-intentioned advice. A lot of the counsel you receive will focus on the physical plane, i.e., dietary intervention, supplements, physical and occupational therapies. Some children can do remarkably well there. Many children, however, will require work

Set Boundaries for Family Peace

by Mary Romaniec Not long ago I attended a homeschooling conference geared toward the parochial perspective. While we are not a homeschool family, several of my friends are, especially for their children with special needs. I was there to help a friend who had a vendor booth at the conference.
