Our second issue centers on the theme of happiness and we want to begin by acknowledging that the theme for this issue, and almost all of the articles it contains, were written prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. The one exception is our feature article by Robin Beck, appearing first in the issue, which offers a powerful response to the insecurity generated by the coronavirus.
It seems to us that happiness is an essential theme for a magazine that upholds inner freedom as a necessary foundation for paradigm-shifting.
In the rest of the issue, you will find an interview with Dr. Shefali Tsabary and Phil Moore on the topic of happiness. Dr. Shefali is an international speaker and clinical psychologist, well known for her work on conscious parenting. Phil is a teacher in The Mystery School and an expert on the topic of love-based education.
Our third feature is an excerpt from Jeff Carreira's book, The Art of Conscious Contentment. Jeff is the founder of The Mystery School. He is also an author, mystical philosopher and meditation teacher. In this excerpt, Jeff shares his insights on how to unhook ourselves from habitual patterns of mind.
Our final article is an inspiring book review of Joseph Goldstein's A Heart Full of Peace, written by Amy Edelstein . Lastly, as a perfect finishing touch to the issue, we included a number of uplifting contributions from our members.
