    Bookmarks: 'American Veda' by Philip Goldberg

  • The power of meditation

    The power of meditation
    To understand the impact meditation can have on the human mind, picture a glass of muddy water. If you stir it, the water stays cloudy and anything that might sink to the bottom is instantly sucked back into motion. But if you allow the glass to become...
  • War between Israel and Iran would be an unspeakable catastrophe

    We should expect a horrific human toll from any exchange of hostilities between Iran and Israel ("Nuclear saber-rattling," Jan. 6). Steps toward avoiding that, such as your editorial call for an intricate U.S.-Tehran agreement, are morally well-...

    The greatest pitcher who never was
    Joe Berton was the greatest pitcher to ever climb a mound. And today, Joe Berton, a retired schoolteacher who lives in Oak Park and is 57 and Ichabod Crane spindly and does not swivel heads anymore, is a footnote to sports history. No, that's not quite...
  • For Gina Sager, it's mind over medicine

    For Gina Sager, it's mind over medicine
    Not so long ago, Gina Sager set out to cure her patients by wielding a surgeon's scalpel. Today, her preferred tool is a set of two small brass bells connected by a cord — though these, too, require all the precision and delicacy she can muster....

    Art created, art destroyed
    With clanging cymbals, sonorous chants and blaring horns, the 10 Buddhist monks consecrated their mandala -- a multi-colored design of beauty, made entirely of sand. Then, one of the monks swept it into a heap -- destroying the ornate, yard-wide circular...
  • Swooping in to help Laos

    Swooping in to help Laos
    It's the fourth zip line that spills the surprise. Confident now, I leap off the platform to feel the cable bounce heavily, then snap taut under my weight. Gravity takes over, shooting me through a tunnel of blurring foliage until the whirr of the pulley-...
  • Joe Surf: Now that Slater's got the city key, come on back to compete

    So last week, Huntington Beach gave Kelly Slater a key to the city. Well deserved. Didn't they name a street after him, too? You know, Slater Avenue, between Talbert and Warner avenues? Anyway, he deserves it. Some call him the best surfer ever, and...
