It has already been a year since I became the new publisher of Conscious Community Magazine! I can tell you this; it is so much work, yet it is amusing for me! My enthusiasm for humanity, personal and spiritual development is so huge that waking up in the morning is something that I look forward to every day!
As you may have noticed, Conscious Community Magazine has made many changes during the past year. We’ve changed the layout and design of the magazine, deleted and added a few columns, articles, and features, reorganized the CCM website, and there’s much more to come! My goal for this publication is to bring you a great content magazine to reach your highest potential, create community, and bring positive change in the world. I want to thank all of you for reading this magazine, as well as your support, comments, and suggestions!
Thank you to all of the advertisers that make Conscious Community Magazine interactive, engaging, and educational. Let’s cooperate more, and make a difference in our communities and in our world! Thank you all for your support!
I would like to thank the current and past Conscious Community Magazine team that support and further my vision to make this magazine enjoyable to read and use: Jody Levitan, Julie A. Roberts, Susan Pluto, Rebecca Balogh, Anna Anthony, Lori Kumskis, Melissa Boyas, Theresa Puskar, Kayla Hancock, Kaye Berjot, Jim Kaminecki, Laura Slivinski, Jen Heine… and all of the other talented people, and you know who you are. THANK YOU!
In this issue, we have a few feature articles that you may want to check out. We have an interview with Ania Massat about Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). She explains what NLP is, and why you may be interested in learning about or experiencing it. Also, Christine Keating-Collins wrote the article: “Litha and the Light: Celebrating the White Goddess and the Summer Solstice.”
As you know, the Summer Solstice is on June 21, and I invite you to help us celebrate the longest day of the year:
-Saturday, June 17, 5-6pm. SUMMER SOLSTICE MEDITATION ON CHICAGO’S SHORELINE, organized by Kathy Georgen of Integrative Rainbow Healing Center. It is a meditation on the beach with your own picnic dinner. For more information and registration, call Kathy at 847-687-7886.
-Saturday-Sunday, June 17-18, Noon to noon. SUMMER SOLSTICE AT THE CABIN. Included are camping, dinner/ breakfast, and all classes including yoga, Kirtan, gong meditation. 24 hours of fun at the cabin on the Rock River in Oregon, IL!

I also want to introduce a new column: “Community Q & A, Ask Alecia,” where you can ask questions about relationships, spirituality, consciousness, and almost any topic you are interested in. Please submit your questions to: AskAlecia@moontribevillage.com, and Alecia will answer interesting questions each month.
