Issue 9 – March 2021
It’s a new beginning…
Happy Spring! As the day lengthens and the light moves higher in the heavens, the earth springs to life- in birdsong, budding leaves and flowers, busy bees- all beckoning us to crawl out of our caves to come greet the world.
We at FHC are feeling this new momentum and are heeding its call by offering you thoughtful and inspiring articles on how to bring meaningful change into our lives and communities, and how to nourish and be nourished in turn. We are all part of an interconnected whole, local and global, and each of us thrives individually when the whole collective is supported.
In this newsletter we include ideas and examples of the kind of innovation and rebirth many of us are longing for. Be sure to scroll down to our HEALTH IN ACTION feature and our UPCOMING WEBINAR on how to nurture and care for ourselves and loved ones. If you like what you see, share it with a friend and consider making a $25 donation!
HELP US CREATE A HEALTH CREATION MOVEMENT!
From the CALENDAR OF THE SOUL, by Rudolf Steiner
March 21-27, 2021
Into our inner being
The riches of the senses pour.
The Cosmic Spirit finds itself
Reflected in the human eye,
Which ever must renew its strength
From out that spirit source.

Reimagining Health and Wealth
by John Bloom
As young children, my brother and I would visit our grandmother at the home for the aged. She would look at us and say, even into her nineties, “If you are healthy, you are wealthy.” That was a first mysterious inkling of how simple wisdom connects apparent disparity. Now that I am ten times older than that memory, her wisdom has settled into warm appreciation as I hold her in my thoughts. The adage holds a powerful question that, in order to be rightly understood, demands a radical recasting of the concepts of health and wealth and the extraordinarily complex relationship between them—as cultural and economic phenomena. But, before I take up that perspective, I want to acknowledge one aspect of my grandmother’s statement, the if-then proposition that says health is a precondition of wealth.
