Who is Randy Kritkausky?

Randy Kritkausky, President, is the co-founder of ECOLOGIA. Trained as a sociologist and historian, his interests have focused on societies undergoing profound economic and cultural transitions. He first become involved with environmental and sustainable development issues when he lived in Northeastern Pennsylvania, which was severely impacted by the legacies of coal mining, heavy industry, and toxic waste disposal. During the 1970s Mr. Kritkausky was instrumental in promoting public participation in Pennsylvania. In the 1980s he traveled to the Soviet Union to investigate change in the region and to integrate this understanding into his college teaching. From this work ECOLOGIA emerged with a distinct model of constructive and scientifically grounded public participation.

Mr. Kritkausky then became involved in promoting partnerships between community based organizations and private enterprise. This work involved him in the creation and implementation of global standards such as the greenhouse gas accounting system developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). He has also worked in China with socially responsible entrepreneurs on projects such as creation of a fair trade supply chain for camel and cashmere fiber from Inner Mongolia, and poverty alleviation through rabbit raising in Sichuan Province. In the past several years, he has been researching the impact of business models which prioritize community impact (the Orthogonal Economy).

His book, Without Reservation: Awakening to Native American Spirituality and the Ways of our Ancestors (published in September 2020), applies his experiences and insights to current environmental issues.

Mr. Kritkausky is an enrolled tribal member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, now living in Vermont. He has been a Research Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College, Vermont, and Visiting Scholar in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in California. He is a former professor at Keystone College in Pennsylvania, and Erasmus Mundus Scholar at the Central European University in Budapest and Lund University in Sweden. He holds a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania, and an M.A. in Early Modern History from Binghamton University.

Step Out of the Rush and Into Relaxed Living

by Guy Finley -
Radio Host of  "Letting Go"
Tuesdays, 6pm PT

The following five lessons contain special insights into the invisible pressure-filled states that cause human beings to run themselves ragged.

The more clearly we can see that it's impossible to reach a place of rest by rushing to get there, the sooner we'll arrive at the true solutions that allow us to relax, slow down, and realize the relaxed pace of an inwardly liberated life.
Study each of these lessons to not only find the courage you need to step out of the rush, but also to awaken to a whole new order of yourself that gets everything done without you doing yourself in!

1. Anyone who rushes through life always finishes last! This is a truth unseen by the masses, but evident to those weary of going nowhere fast. You race as you do to escape the unhappiness you feel being where you are, running toward what you imagine will free you from that dissatisfaction. But such races are always lost before they begin because you can't outrun yourself!

2. You are well on your way to reclaiming your original fearless Self when you find your source of peace and contentment in just being alive.

3. Rushing through life lends the one who habitually hurries the feeling of being "important," but loans such as these come at the high cost of always having to justify one's unkindness -- like when we have to convince ourselves that our impatience with others is a necessary evil along the way to that "greater good" toward which we think we run.

4. The main reason it's wise to listen to one's own heart -- whenever we can step out of the rush and remember to do so -- is because there's much more to be learned from the parts of us that don't "speak" in words . . . than those that do.

5. The most important thing to remember whenever you find yourself in a mad rush is that what you are really trying to get to is a quiet mind . . . a peaceable state of Self reached only by realizing there is no place more empowering for you to be than in the present moment.

Excerpted from "The Courage to Be Free" by Guy Finley

He is the Founder and Director of Life of Learning Foundation, a nonprofit center for transcendent self-study located in Merlin, Oregon.

Menopause - Naturally
by Linda Mackenzie, C.H.T., Ph.D. (c)

Menopause is a woman's time of wisdom, power and knowledge. Cultural background, diet, lifestyle, genetics and knowledge of the menopausal process play key roles in how a woman will experience menopause. The average age for a woman to cease having her menstrual cycle and stop reproduction is 51.3 years of age, however, peri-menopause can begin in the late thirties. An individualized process, no woman experiences menopause in exactly the same way. Menopause symptoms can range from none to many and last for varying lengths of time up to a period of five-years.

The common symptoms of menopause can include none, some or all of the following:
Vasomotor symptoms include insomnia, palpitations and hot flashes or night sweats associated with headaches, itchy skin, dizziness, weakness, numbness in arms or hands; low libido; vaginal changes of dryness, itchiness, infections or painful sex; urinary infections or incontinence; irregular bleeding; psychological factors, such as, depression, anxiety, irritability, weeping, mood swings; cognitive changes verbal and episodic forgetfulness; acne; hair loss; facial hair; and weight gain due to a slower resting metabolic rate and other factors. Osteoporosis is in fact not a symptom of menopause. However it is associated with menopause because calcitonin, a thyroid hormone necessary for bone growth, is reduced because of the lower estrogen levels.

Women who choose not to use traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may choose to use natural methods to help alleviate menopausal symptoms. These mind and body methods treat the whole person to make menopause a more positive experience.

1. Aromatherapy works by using the sense of smell to generate symptomatic relief of emotional and physical problems. Oils used as a bath, perfume, massage or inhalant have shown positive results. For example try these oils for these associated symptoms: hot flash - rose or peppermint oil; fatigue -rosemary; low libido -cardamom; vaginal dryness -neroli or geranium; urinary incontinence -eucalyptus; emotional stress -lavender or jasmine; and for overall relief -lemon balm, rose or cypress.

2. Deep Breathing and focusing on the breath activates the major quieting nerve of the body -the vagus nerve. This helps to immediately lower blood pressure, heart, pulse, and respiratory rates to aid in reducing anxiety and overall stress.

3. Diet is one of the most important keys to help menopause. In parts of India, China and Africa they do not experience hot flashes. Lesser menopause symptoms are experienced in countries whose cultures eat a mostly vegetarian, high fiber, low fat diet. It also includes leafy green vegetables and fatty acids, such as flaxseed or evening primrose oil, (which have estrogen properties). They also avoid, eliminate or reduce caffeine, refined sugar, refined flour and grains, salt, alcohol, nicotine, dairy products, spicy foods, artificial colorings, flavorings and preservatives.

4. Education about the menopausal process is the first defense against menopausal symptoms. In the past, menopause was shrouded in mystery and often viewed as a negative experience and a precursor to death. In previous generations our life span was shorter and communication about menopause was considered an unmentionable subject. Menopause is a natural part of life. Eliminate its mystery and misconceptions and women are better prepared to handle the outcome.

5. Exercise helps to minimize and eliminate menopausal symptoms, as well as, osteoporosis. Try yoga, aerobics or walking for thirty (30) minutes, three times a week.

6. Herbs are part of nature's pharmacy. Herbs have many different properties and certain herbs have phytoestrogen (plant estrogens) qualities. For example try these herbs for these associated symptoms: hot flash and night sweats -red clover, chaste berry (vitex) or black cohash; low libido -panax ginseng or damiana; vaginal dryness and tissue weakness -yellow dock, motherwort, or raspberry leaf and calendula cream; urinary incontinence- garlic, cranberry and saw palmetto; hormonal balance -black cohash, anise, licorice root, wild yam cream; and emotional stress -St. John's wort, kava, dong quai, blessed thistle.

7. Homeopathy was discovered in the 1700ís and is based on unblocking the body's own healing system. Homeopathy is a non-toxic therapy with no known side effects. It is safe to use in conjunction of traditional, medical, psychological and physical therapies.

8. Phytoestrogens are found in plants and activate estrogen receptors. There are 3 types of natural estrogen found in plants: resorcyclic acid lactones found in rice, corn, barley and wheat which contain beta estradiol; steroidal estrogen found in rice, date palms and licorice which are identical to the estrone and estradiol produced in the body; and phenolics which come in different classes and include isoflavones. In menopause isoflavones can buffer symptoms of estrogen loss and with the highest sources of isoflavones being found in red clover, flaxseed, and soybeans. Other sources include beans, lentils, black-eyed peas and phytoestrogen herbs.

9. Positive Attitude does the most for menopause. We are what we think and a positive attitude helps the physical body combat symptoms. Without fighting change (and this includes any change) the emotional transition becomes easier.

10. Sexual Activity provides physical benefits for menopause. It is good exercise and helps hormonal levels, vaginal muscle tone and lubrication.

11. Smoking Cessation may cause earlier menopause and smokers may experience higher changes in vaginal atrophy.

12. Vitamin, Mineral and Supplement therapy can help support the body in obtaining relief from menopausal symptoms. A good multi-vitamin/mineral supplement, which includes digestive enzymes, green foods and amino acids, helps the adrenal glands to lessen emotional symptoms and keeps the immune system of the body working at peak performance. Here are some vitamin/mineral/supplement alternatives per symptom: hot flash - Vitamin E (Remember that D-alphatocopherol is preferred over synthetic vitamin E), lecithin, Vitamin C, bioflavinoids. Some studies have found that taking 1200mg.of bioflavinoids and vitamin C have reduced and eliminated hot flash; low libido -B complex and octaconsal; vaginal dryness -evening primrose oil; urinary incontinence -vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, l-glycine, l-carnitine and evening primrose oil; emotional stress -B complex, B12, melatonin, 5HTP, l-tyrosine, zinc, l-arginine, l-lysine, silica, potassium, chromium and bee pollen; hormonal balance-B complex, DHEA, manganese and niacin.

13. Visualization and self-hypnosis puts the intention of healing to work using the mind-body connection. Using positive images, visualization helps to produce positive emotions that turn into physical sensations in the body. A good example of how this works is if you imagine yourself at a scary movie, when you become afraid, goose bumps appear on your skin. Visualization does the same thing except it uses positive suggestion and images to produce positive changes in the body. Usually done once in the morning and before bedtime for 6 weeks visualization can help eliminate or minimize menopausal physical and emotional symptoms.

Since everyone's body is different, not one method will work for everyone. Woman can make the choice for natural alternatives. They can be women of power, wisdom and knowledge.

According to Native American traditions, if an animal appears in your dreams or crosses your path this has a meaning or message for you. Many Native Americans believe animals act as spirit guides or protective spirits. Sometimes Shamans identify with the attributes and qualities of an animal to alter their state of consciousness.Animal symbols can give you clues to your subconscious emotions or instincts. They may even represent your survival instinct. However you choose to use your animal symbols is exactly right for you.

Recipe of the Month

Angel Food Cake
(Wheat, Lactose and Refined Sugar Free)

Oven Temperature: 375° F
Baking Time: 35-40 min., 1-10" tube pan

1 cups gluten free flour
1/2 teaspoons of xantham gum
12 large egg whites (room temperature)
1 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract

Sift together flour blend and xantham gum. Using an electric mixer at high speed beat egg whites, cream of tartar salt, vanilla and almond extract until stiff and forms soft glossy peaks. Continue beating as you slowly add maple syrup, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition. Sift 1/4 flour mixture over egg white mixture. Fold in remaining flour mixture by fourths in a down-up-over motion. Pour batter into ungreased tube pan. With knife gently cut through batter to break any large air bubbles then bake at 375° F. Bake 35-40 minutes.

Cool in inverted tube pans about 1 hour. Loosen sides and center with a knife, then invert cake to release from pan. Eat plain, use a dessert sauce or frost with your favorite icing.

HINT: Angel Food Cakes are leavened just with air, so how you beat the eggs, the lightness in which you fold in the ingredients and the baking temperature are very important to the outcome of the cake.
