From contributing editor Lisa Gale Garrigues:
- Integration: How to hold and view polarities in myself and the world with grace and balance.
- Love: How to act from love instead of fear. (I mean love in its most ordinary and mundane sense, ie with relationships, co-workers, and friends, as well as self-love.)
