Breathe in...or Burn Out

Editorial Notes: Cultivate is a living and learning centre in Dublin that seeks to: • provide effective integral solutions to the issues of peak oil and climate change • inspire individuals to explore solutions to live in a more sustainable, creative and ultimately balanced way • answer questions about sustainability Check out sustainable.ie for more. It's great to see these positive lifestyle articles regarding nutrition and health presented in the same magazine as articles dealing with the global fossil fuel situation. Yoga and meditation are two health promoting practices which have very little 'embodied' energy. I suspect that in a world with less material wealth knowing and practicing such arts will increase our quality of life ever more. -AF
