First Issue: May 2010 Publisher's Letter
Our latest Publishers' Letters
February 2018 Publishers Letter
Thanks for picking up this month’s issue! We like to imagine you finding just the right path to wellness within our pages. Or perhaps, finding the inspiration to move forward with your life in other important ways through healing modalities, meditations, great classes, new careers, inspirational messages and more.
With Valentine’s Day in this month, it is a good time to consider online, conscious dating with Natural Awakenings singles on (p18), while you are opening your heart to love (p9).
Read up on meditation and mindfulness (p14) and then take a class with Anita Destino (Back Cover), Debra Lin Allen (p31), or J4CL (p19 ).
In today’s world, RESILIENCE is more important than ever and you’ll learn how to increase your own on p16.
Have fun figuring ways to put more of our top 10 Heart Healthy foods into your daily diet on p20. We think we’ll start with chocolate and raspberries!
We don’t need to tell you that Coloradoans love their dogs, but you may be interested to learn about the benefits of Service Animals AND the important legal distinctions between them and Companion or Assistance animals. Good to know!
Perhaps most importantly, on page 24, you’ll learn about Self Love through the timeless wisdom of Charlie Chaplin. We were just as surprised as you to learn of his great depth and wisdom, but it sure makes us want to learn more about this American icon.
Some tips to remember during February: Look for the Light in everything; Give Thanks even for your challenges; Choose to see the highest good in yourself and others, and Be Kind as much as possible!
Correction: On P26 of the January edition under “It’s Time to ‘Gut’ Healthy,” the first sentences should read, “Hippocrates said all disease begins in the gut. Ninety-five percent of your Serotonin and 80 percent of your immune system reside in your gut.” Also, Kelly Haugh’s phone number should read 720-236-7897.

CONSTANT Acts of Kindness
There may be good reason to believe that this time
on Earth is mired in a dense, heavy energy. Many
ancient wisdoms such as the Vedic and Mayan
calendars were aware of the 26,000-year “Precession of
the Equinoxes” and believed in the cycling of high Golden
ages with dense Iron ages. The 2012 end of the Mayan
calendar was marking the low point for human consciousness
on the planet. It sure feels that way and makes sense
This shows up in the concentration of power, wealth
and control amongst a relative few; in the polarization of
politics and society; blaming and fi nger-pointing; the mass shootings and police
shootings; the unmasking of latent racism; and “needing” to make people act,
think and feel in certain ways deemed “acceptable” to society so that we feel
comfortable, while confi ning them into virtual prisons of uniformity.
At Natural Awakenings, we seek always to be positive-focused and solutionoriented.
Complaining about what’s wrong in the world or in our lives can
become a self-defeating habit. We continually see proof in our lives that perceptions
and judgements help to create the reality we live in. We’ve also witnessed
enough “miracles” to know that possibility is only limited by our imagination.
Humans are capable of tremendous love, compassion and enlightenment. We
could create a world where we work together to solve problems; listen to every
idea; support everyone in demonstrating their individuality, inspiration and
creativity; where everyone is safe and protected; where every member of society
is valued for their contribution; where hunger, poverty and ignorance are the
enemies – not each other!
We look to inspiration from great teachers such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King
Jr, Jesus, and all who’ve led non-violent forms of protest. Even Einstein said, “We
can’t solve a problem with the same state of consciousness that created it in the
fi rst place.” Let’s face it, if we hate the haters, then we are just another hater!
This isn’t easy, but we must learn to love and respect and bless even those
with whom we see absolute disagreement. Everyone’s suffering is tremendous
right now, and we can’t know their path nor their choices. It is only the Ego that
must be right, must be heard, must prove that someone else is wrong, and must
strike back at its perceived enemies. Now, more than ever, we need to express
our Divine selves.
We are absolutely committed: to allowing all others to be who and how they
are; to committing constant acts of kindness in a world where so many are angry/
stressed/impatient; to looking for the good in our lives and others; to forgiving
those that say and do hurtful things; and to drawing our own boundaries in
loving and appropriate ways that don’t lay blame on others.
We author our experience with the thoughts we think, the words we speak,
and the actions we do. Each of us is valuable, important, unique, and capable
of unlimited wisdom and creativity! We add our light to the growing power of
lovingkindness consciousness on Earth in order to bring about new possibilities.
Won’t you join us?
May 2010 Publishers Letter
What an exciting change and a new beginning for us.
Our mission is to live lives full of motion, energy, love and service to others.
We have both been corporate warriors most of our lives; now we are business owners. And with that comes an enormous responsibility to help others, become even more of an important resource to the community, and learn and grow along with our readers and advertisers.
We have been led
to Denver. Maybe it's because of the
300 days of sunshine, the Rocky Mountains
on our doorstep in which to hike, bike,
camp, and ski. Maybe it's because
studies show a correlation between
weight loss and altitude. Perhaps it's
the 200,000 acres of organic farmland
in surrounding areas or the diversity
of neighboring hippy Boulder and right-leaning
Colorado Springs. We know it's beautiful
here. This area has a unique identity,
great people, amazing culture, sports
and great recreational opportunities.
Because what Denver does, it really
does big! --from that crazy airport
to the Jefferson County government
building in Golden, to the miles of
bike trails and parks.
We came to pan for gold. And the gold is YOU, our readers. Our mission is to support you in living a healthy, connected, environmentally-harmonious life, to help you access providers and merchants that you feel good about.
You deserve the best mental, physical and spiritual health. Whether it be consulting an intuitive, cleansing your system, holistic dentistry, a hydroponic garden, a health-centered medical professional, attending a class, finding a like-minded support group or spiritual guidance, you will find the best of the best within these pages.
If you don't do
something different today, how can
you expect anything to change tomorrow?
Just like we are finding our own new beginning, we hope that you find an opportunity for a new beginning every month within the pages of Natural Awakenings.
Looking forward to the future, Doug and Terry
