A Pilgrimage from Humbled to Healed

By Sonia Choquette

Regardless of our ability to handle life’s lesser than positive events, like death and divorce, we are often dealt what often seems to be more than we can individually handle. This is what happened to the author, a world-renowned intuitive guide and spiritual teacher. All she was hearing was, “Physician, heal thyself” in essence.

Her active response was to embark on a 820 km, grueling trail, known as the Camino Santiago, over the Pyrenees to northern Spain. She shares her daily encounters, including hunger, exhaustion, and pain. Along with the struggle, positive lessons are learned and acted upon. In the end, she shows us that we are able to leave behind unhappiness and pain and re-learn fundamental lessons of humility and compassion, through the process of sacrifice and self-abrogation to reconnection and a recovery of an inner sense of peace.

A True Story

By Joshua Horwitz

Sonar is the primary means the Navy has of targeting and tracking enemy submarines. While there is much secrecy and tension surrounding naval operations that is readily apparent, we are also aware that this military entity has within it many scientists, who over the years, have made the correlation between occurrences like whale strandings and have committed to the cause with personal resolve.

This is essentially the story of two men — an environmental attorney and a whale researcher who had worked with navy sound surveillance during the Vietnam War. They come upon evidence of a direct link between Navy sonar and mass whale strandings and decide to team up to challenge the Navy and tell the truth about acoustic warfare and its sometimes lethal impact on whales, leading to a legal court case.
