An Editorial by Aleesha Stephenson

Hmmm… health. How do we even begin to discuss health? Do we focus on our body? How about our spiritual health? Even better, how about focusing on our environmental health? I am hoping we can touch on many different aspects of health within this issue and assist you to perhaps find more health for yourself.

With the usual syncronicity of this magazine, we are welcoming a new columnist and staff member to our usual line up of amazingly wonderful writers. Melissa Gilbert has been kind enough to agree to start writing a regular column "Life in the Raw" and come on staff as an Associate Editor. Please be sure to check out her writings on living life as a Raw Vegan and creating a smaller footprint on this planet.

Speaking of which, I've been reading and watching the experience of a family in New York. Their goal was to create zero impact on the earth for one year. November 20th 2007 signified their one-year and they did it, they achieved their goal. Now the real test begins… what do they do now? Do they go back to creating a negative impact on the earth or do they continue with many of their choices? If you want to learn the answers to this and perhaps even read the archives of their experience please visit their blog.

I've begun my own journey into health. In mid-August a wonderful friend began supporting me in a life-changing choice. First I did a juice fast for 9 days and then I started eating a Raw Vegan Diet. As a vegetarian and eventually a vegan 10 years ago, it was a wonderful gift to myself to return to that lifestyle choice, but taking it to another level. No dead food in my diet at all. In a few short months I've released over 50 lbs from my body and I've watched my face begin to show definition, my clothes fall off my body (literally) and even my shoe size changed. I was able to put my original wedding rings back on and they are even a little loose!

I've started yoga, which I always wanted to do but thought I was too overweight to achieve the goal. I've since learned that it doesn't matter what your body shape is… yoga is good for it and for your soul! And I've created a forum called The Whole Being. So please feel free to pop in, grab a free membership and talk about Timeless Spirit and healthy living!

So please, sit down - grab a cup of something wonderful and read the pages of this issue. It truly is a feast for your soul!
