Dear NA Indy Readers, In the spirit of the season, we rightly turn our attention to metaphysical matters, most notably Linda Sechrist’s uplifting feature, “The Emerging Power of ‘We’: Awakening to the Evolution of Community.” Here you’ll find a compelling argument that collective wisdom, collaborative change and the need to evolve may be the key to addressing the major challenges that confront humankind.

This month’s Wise Words also takes us on a spiritual journey with the story of Mary Neal, an orthopedic surgeon and author of 7 Lessons from Heaven: How Dying Taught Me to Live a Joy-Filled Life, who shares her account of a near-death experience in which she believes she penetrated the veil dividing the physical and spiritual worlds. Her life-altering experience prompted her to pay more attention to those things that are truly important: faith, family and relationships with others.

In addition to feeding the soul, we focus on nourishing ourselves with Earth-friendly holiday practices, from updating family traditions and serving vegan treats, to reducing food waste and choosing safe and eco-smart products. Chef Wendell Fowler’s December feature, “An Earth-Friendly Holiday Benefits Mother Earth and Humanity,” brings our attention to eating and shopping locally, always with the Earth in mind.

We explore the pursuit of healthy living with articles detailing the many benefits of breathwork in “Inhaling the Joy of Life: Conscious Breathwork,” and the importance of maintaining strong skeletal integrity in “Beyond Calcium: Full-Spectrum Bone Health.”

Wishing you all a joyful holiday season,

Donna Kirk, Publisher
