EDITOR'S PICK - QRS (QUANTRON RESONANCE SYSTEM)

How can this happen? Subtle pulsating fields from the mat maximize cell functioning with no side effects. QRS is safe for babies, adults, elderly, even pets!

A deep sense of connectedness to all life and a sense of inner knowledge are potential benefits when exercise is done consciously.

Echoes of Silence
Our conditioned, patterned way of living may be disrupted by the unexpected. An accident, a sudden reversal of fortune, or the death of a loved one.

In "Welcome Epiphanies" Robert Rabbin shares a personal example of this.
Music and Wellness
In "Rhythmaculture: The Roots of Community" Barry Bittman M.D. defines this as a culture that has integrated ritual, dance, song and music into almost every aspect of its existence, its expression of itself, and its celebration of life.
