Healing Horses on Kaua'i by Barbara Carroll
When you open the red wooden gate of 3146 Akahi Street, Lihue, Kauai immediately you can tell this is certainly not any typical commercial property. The yellow house is surrounded by green grass and lined with beautiful tropical plants and flowers. Show up on any given Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday and you will find this yard graced with the wonderment of Kauai's keiki and adults connecting with gentle, well-trained horses and ponies.
One man's vision.. "Where Prana meets Mana" A yoga temple on Kauai's North Shore by Michael Levine
Sitting in a hospital bed following 12 hours of surgery, Eagle could not feel his legs and could not move his feet.
His burgeoning career as a world-class racquetball player derailed by a head-on car crash a year earlier, he had been unable to walk without excruciating pain when he opted to undergo a 360-degree lamenectomy, a procedure that used shaved portions of his hipbones, as well as bone fragments from a cadaver, to pack the area between his tailbone and lowest vertebrae tight and keep his spine stable.
It would be a long, challenging road back to the top.
Eight years later, during an instructional tour of Japan - during which he defeated all of the country's challengers in one-on-one play - Eagle realized that his Japanese racquetball students were unable to advance past a certain level not because they weren't heeding his advice or because they didn't want it badly enough, but because their rigid bodies were restricting their movement and rendering them physically unable to execute the shots.

Feng Shui Your Wealth Corner : Feng Shui for Wealth 101 by Eva Cariffe
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement that promotes life fulfillment through harnessing and distributing energies into an area or location. It is also a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies in any given space and time to assure the health and good fortune for the people inhabiting them. The literal translation means "wind and water." In the Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, therefore good feng shui came to mean good fortune. Implementing the principles of this three- to four-thousand year old wisdom correctly into the space we live and/or work, will enhance our lives.
