Conscious Living.

This month's issue is devoted to the exploration of the "Conscious-Living Lifestyle of the Cultural Creatives." There are 50 Million Cultural Creatives in America today.  If self-actualization, spiritual transformation, self-expression, ecological sustainability, and women's issues are important to you, chances are good that you are one of the 50 million.

A Soulful Vision for Our Planet.
If we each strive to live more consciously, allowing ourselves to be guided by our hearts and souls, together we can create a more balanced, sustainable and soulful planet, to be enjoyed today and by future generations.

We've gathered a group of experts on the subject of conscious living and have asked them to share their evolutionary thoughts and ideas here with us. You'll find the wisdom of such authors as Jean Houston, Duane Elgin, Janet Luhrs, Gregg Levoy, and Sherry Anderson, to name a few...

May peace and joy be enjoyed by all as we begin to live more consciously!
