Exciting News for Teton Spirit!
by Samantha Eddy Spring is in the air and with warmer temps and longer days things are getting ready to shift into the fresh and new. Teton Spirit is too. We are ready to take our original vision of promoting healthy inspired living in Jackson Hole to it’s next level. There is so much to tell you about what’s happening. For starters, Ciela Wynter has decided to join me as partner. She grew up in Jackson Hole and has been based primarily out of Southern California for the past 20 years. She helped launch a global spiritual community, is a yoga instructor, and is passionately committed to spreading the word and educating about wellbeing. She’s got some amazing ideas for expanding Teton Spirit and using its current form as a model for growth. This spring while I am working on publishing the summer issue, she will be attending the Start Up Institute to create a comprehensive vision and business plan.

New Paradigm: Be Evolutionary
by Carol Mann “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandi At Our Best The experience of being among women and men and children standing up together for the greater good of all people and for the earth in our local march early this winter felt noble and inspiring, an example of how it can be. It gave me pause to reflect on the consciousness of evolution, of being an evolutionary and how it differs from the consciousness of revolution, or being a revolutionary. Evolutionary Conciseness The consciousness of evolution has an element of grace, which is powerful and understated. It is turning toward and unfolding a higher state of being. Its hallmark is moving forward without taking a position… for or against… what is or what was. Being evolutionary is about taking purposeful steps to upgrade oneself from the inside-out, so that the best of who we are and what we create in the external world reflects the wisdom and universal truths of higher states of consciousness.

Welcome Spring Equinox!
by Lyn Dalebout Star Signposts: Week of Spring Equinox March 20 – 26 Spring Equinox ~ Last Quarter Moon “Winter gives way to spring” photograph by Lyn Dalebout It’s of interest to me that this year’s initiating Spring Equinox (when our life-giving Sun is halfway on it’s journey to reaching the northernmost turn-around point of Summer Solstice) occurs under the phase of the Last Quarter Moon. This phase means it’s time to complete the lessons/projects of the past and begin to turn your attention toward the next wave of creation to be launched with the New Moon of March 27. Perhaps this also means that 2017 will be a combination of completing your old life story, and launching a new dynamic Book of Possibilities. Also, on March 25, when Venus retrograde meets up with the Sun, she initiates her phase as the Morning Star, not yet visible for a few weeks, but this transit can be experienced as a profound internal shift. Life is a result of dreaming, planning, serendipity and miracles. Each of us has a different way we manifest in this physical dimension, some require more planning, while others leave life up to chance and surprise. One key to […]
Spring Self Rising
By Laura E. Garrard Spring Self Rising Spring approaches bringing the slight scent of sage Warmer winds alleviate the chill of winter’s storms I approach the woman of years ago With new beginnings on her horizon Her monthly goals achieved and then some Creativity born of yoga practice and re-education Bodily healing and bodily challenge of new physicality Her breath interprets things blooming within Not of pain but of passion Her own, not his nor theirs She was discovering herself anew And smelled flowers of birth The sweetness of kindness toward herself Secure not Spring breezes and counterparts to reason She asked herself through philosophy, books and questions Then stood summer, a completion of change Unfolding even more boldly than she presumed Laura E.

Eustachian Tube Massage
It can hit anyone at any age – children and adults alike – and result in anything from mild discomfort to severe pain. We’re talking about congestion, that miserable clogged headachy feeling due to upper respiratory illness, ear infection, or allergies. It’s often due to inflammation and fluid in the Eustachian tube, a canal that connects the middle ear to the upper throat and the back of the nasal cavity. The Eustachian tube’s job is to: balance pressure in the middle ear, keeping it equal with air pressure outside the body; protect the inner ear from nasal secretions; drain middle ear secretions into the area between the nasal cavity and upper throat. When you experience congestion, a typical medical approach is to treat symptoms (e.g., with antibiotics, decongestants). Related: The Power of Beliefs A holistic approach includes natural medicines and Eustachian Tube Massage (ETM), which can alleviate congestion and the discomfort it causes by stretching the soft tissue that lines the tube. This helps reduce pressure and promotes release of fluid from the tube. You can perform ETM on yourself, or for a child. After washing your hands, use your index or middle finger to feel behind the ear lobe for […]
