The group will work to expose and stop the
harmful and contaminating practice of fracking for natural gas and oil through
mass awareness and peaceful democratic action. Yoko and Sean were compelled into
action by Governor Andrew Cuomo's recent announcement that fracking might soon
begin in New York.
VIDEO CAUTION - GRAPHIC IMAGES:Top fashion models, such as Naomi Campbell, who do not get out of bed for less than a £10,000 daily fee at one time pledged they would never wear fur and would rather go naked. But 400 of the world's up-market designers are using animal pelts for fashion on the cat-walks of London, Paris, Milan and New York, dressing high paid models in furs costing five figure sums. The UK fur market has more than doubled with Britain's leading fur retailer, Hockley, increasing sales by 44% in its London store over the past ten years. Mulberry, Gucci, Fendi and others are stocking winter collections. London is now the fastest growing market in Europe and sales in Asia are booming at £3.7 billion per year. World sales in fur reached £10.3 billion last year. Goods made in China using cat fur, raccoon dog fur, rabbit fur and mink are on sale labelled as 'synthetic fabric'. We are being conned into animal cruelty. Many of these animals are skinned alive in China.

However, even the smallest change, when a nation gets involved, can make a huge change.
These are the major daily household pollutants: convenience plastic and polystyrene packaging; synthetic clothing with nylon, polyester, acrylic, etc.; plastic microbeads in toothpaste and cosmetics; wet wipes and nappies. Add to this cell phones, palm oil, air travel, nuclear disasters and accidental oil spills, deforestation, and you can understand how our unique and finite planet struggles to maintain its wellbeing, the wellbeing that we are all dependent upon, approaching 7 billion now and many more billions in the future whose health will definitely be affected.
We can live simply, leaving a light footprint on our world. We do not need to see our worth in terms of the accumulation of material objects. We can see ourselves in terms of our worth to other people in great need across the world, and to other species that are dependent on our understanding. We can be the person we are born to be without material possessions and see others not in terms of their material wealth but judge them by other more mature criteria. Our life can be about who we are as an individual in our own right, our personality and character, and understand others likewise. For more information: Visit

Transcendental Meditation was introduced to the West by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960s. It is a simple method that anyone can use anywhere, but best done in a quiet place alone and without interruption. The technique is a mantra which has no meaning and has no philosophy or religious structure or belief.

There are many causes of low self esteem. It is a largely unrecognised condition that controls your life, reduces your enjoyment of life, causes you to not succeed in life, either in the work environment or in personal relationships. Especially, you might allow yourself to be badly treated by other people - or treat other people badly - and you might not be ambitious for yourself or your children. You might not realise just how low your self esteem is. Working to improve your self worth is something you can do for yourself.

Sit comfortably with your eyes closed.
Exhale and inhale deeply a few times.
Breathe naturally while you focus on the following:
Yoga is a deep well into which we can tap, drawing forth whatever we need to bring ourselves into wholeness and balance.
Ask yourself what will bring wholeness and balance to your life.
Wait for an image or an idea to arise.
Be still with that vision or thought for few minutes.

American, Carl Rogers (1902-1987) was the founder of this method of counselling and therapy and came from a Christian background. He researched the data in order to find out which type of therapy helped the client most. He discovered that all methods were beneficial if the counsellor portrayed three vital qualities - a non judgemental attitude, a genuine concern and had empathy for the client's problems. He did not attempt to diagnose or interpret the client, but gave patient support and considered responses to show that he understood what the client was saying on a deep and caring level. This a humanistic and existential method is often called 'Client Centred Therapy' and this caring response should be available to the client whatever method is being used. The object being to improve the client's life, so they are able to have better relationships, be able to work and enjoy their life and this state is called 'fully functioning'. From this 'student centred learning' or 'learner centred teaching' developed.
