I love being in the flow of life, and observing how everything is unfolding and making perfect sense. Everything is coming at the right moment. When I put together each magazine, I feel that my writers and I are guided by spirit. Each month’s articles and columns have a theme, and they give each issue a totally different form and feeling than the previous month. I love this freedom of creation that takes this magazine to what people need the most at this moment. This month’s theme is about authenticity; how to be true to yourself, taking off your mask, and getting rid of what’s not helping us anymore.
Nine years ago, when I started working at the Spiritual Learning Center as Walter Perschke’s assistant, I wondered if working one-on-one with Walter would be good for me. I was scared that he would discover my pitfalls and insecurities, and that he would not like me the way I was. Before that I was working in corporate America, where besides your supervisor and cubicle coworkers, nobody even knew your name! Working with Walter was a blessing, as he not only accepted me for who I am, he made all my insecurities my attributes! Being authentic is more than looking good in someone else’s eyes; it’s being true to yourself.
I have a few introductions of new people, interviews, and columns to Conscious Community Magazine, print and online!
First of all, I want to introduce Laura Slivinski, our newest editor, who along with Julie Roberts, who has been our main editor for three years, and Susan Pluto, editing also for three years, will make sure that the magazine is flawless. Laura also wrote “The Healing of Halloween” in this issue, continuing Walter’s tradition of a Halloween article each year.
Next, we have an interview with Don Miguel Ruiz Jr., written by Kaye Berjot, our Cosmic Daily Weather columnist. Ruiz is coming to Infinity Foundation in Highland Park on October 22 to do a daylong workshop based on his new book The Mastery of Self: A Toltec Guide to Personal Freedom.
Also, I want to introduce you to a new column: Review of Alternative Medicine, where we will be presenting the power of nontraditional modes of healing and health. If you practice any form of alternative medicine, including yoga, and want to share your knowledge, please consider contributing to Conscious Community Magazine, by sending an email to: Kasia@ConsciousCommunityMagazine.com.
Finally, I want to invite you to check out the Conscious Community Magazine website, where every week we will add to the content of our website, with new articles, products, and events. If you haven’t yet signed up for our email list, I highly recommend it, so you will be informed about all events, articles, and offers before the monthly print edition.
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
