Kirtan musician and composer Adam Bauer finds one-of-a-kind museum-quality vintage and antique treasures during his journeys abroad. Absolutely gorgeous and earth- and animal-friendly, these heirloom-quality Pashmina meditation shawls are made by Kashmiri master artisans using fiber sourced from Capra Hircus, or Changthangi, goats herded by nomadic tribes in the Changthang region of Ladakh and the Tibetan Plateau. These strong, earth-friendly mats made from high-grade, locally sourced cotton will never end up in a landfill.
Master yogini Nicki Doane created this must-have Maya Yoga Fusion Trio, which includes Back Bending Flow, Standing Flow and Core Strength Flow. Full-bodied, well-proportioned, structurally sound antique bowls in such excellent condition are hard to find.
This much-awaited release by the charismatic "queen of soul kirtan" is an exciting blend of genres including soul, kirtan, gospel, R&B, Southern blues and more.

Traditional Tibetan Monk's prayer "books" are unbound hand-decorated pieces of wood alternating with handmade lokta paper inscribed with handwritten prayers, mantras, chants and illustrations of Tibetan deities.
Deepak Chopra calls this best-seller "a time-honored classic that belongs in every yoga library." Originating in the Himalayas, the five yogic exercises known as the Five Tibetans take a minimum of time and effort but dramatically increase physical strength, energy, suppleness and mental acuity. These upcycled license plate art signs mounted on weathered wood depict the word Namaste and a lotus flower.

This powerful yet tranquil, current yet timeless work of healing trance art is master musician, multi-percussionist and composer River Guerguerian's soundspace journal of journeying for five years with nothing but a backpack, a frame drum, a gong, a flute and nine Tibetan singing bowls.
In Buddhism, this serene and contemplative face with closed eyes means, "looking within." This hand-crafted decorative soap is made with all-natural ingredients such as Coconut Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, Vegetable Glycerin and Purified Water and scented with a soothing blend of White Tea, Ginger, Bergamot, Green Daylilies, Nutmeg, Hyacinth, Freesia and Peony. In just 8-weeks, a program of mindfulness meditation was able to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, empathy and stress. Previous studies from Lazar’s group and others found structural differences between the brains of experienced mediation practitioners and individuals with no history of meditation, observing thickening of the cerebral cortex in areas associated with attention and emotional integration.
For the current study, MR images were take of the brain structure of 16 study participants two weeks before and after they took part in the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program at the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness. Meditation group participants reported spending an average of 27 minutes each day practicing mindfulness exercises, and their responses to a mindfulness questionnaire indicated significant improvements compared with pre-participation responses. James Carmody, PhD, of the Center for Mindfulness at University of Massachusetts Medical School, is one of co-authors of the study, which was supported by the National Institutes of Health, the British Broadcasting Company, and the Mind and Life Institute. I was reading through all the negativity and stupidity this morning while drinking my coffee and something said, ‘how about some good news?’, so I typed in GOOD NEWS and found your site… Ahhh! Your daily stories have allowed me to rekindle a certain appreciate for the good things in life.
When I read the newspaper, I look for the good news because every thought we think changes our biochemistry.
If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation. Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about these things.
I am a professor at Case Western reserve University and absolutely love your work--it is very significant. I enjoyed reading the positive stories… I am heartened by the goodness and generosity that I see in people… Keep up your good work. I was absoutely blown away by the fact that there was someone out there in the world who had not only thought of creating a Good News Network, but who had done it for ten years. I was just at one of the big news websites and thought "these people make it seem like the end of the world is coming." Then I found you.
The platform for my work is Albert Einstein's 'Knowing' that the only way to change anything is to change the thinking that created it. I am totally sick of hearing about murders, drugs, and all the rubbish the commercial networks bombard us with. I want to tell you that your Good News Network has helped me through bad times in my life when I struggled through anxiety and depression and sometimes doubts of faith. I can't tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy getting the GoodNews Network newsletter each Wednesday.


I have a 7 year old son and we don't watch TV, listen to the news, or read newspapers because so much of it is negative and full of pain and hate -- things his little body does not need. I realize how this event (the "Miracle on the Hudson") had touched people's lives, how ready they were for good news, how much they wanted to feel hopeful again. As a parent, small business owner, and citizen I congratulate you on having such a wonderful website. Unless one makes a deliberate effort to seek out good news, what one gets from the media is frequently less than uplifting.
See him in his humility, trust, and surrender to his Father as he walked with God each and every day. Gaze upon the One who experienced hunger, thirst, and pain, both physically and spiritually.
Before his pierced and bloodstained feet, we bow our knees, anticipating the day when every person will kneel before him. Far beyond fashion or trend, the yogic lifestyle is a deeper way of living, with consciousness and compassion.
They're guaranteed for 15 years but will last a lifetime, even with steady use from globe-trotting yogis.
The collector is an avid traveler who gathered many of her pieces while journeying around the world in the early 1980s. This book has 10 loose pages, each with a Tibetan Buddhist god on one side and a Tibetan script on the other. Regular practice relieves muscle tension and nervous stress, improves digestion, strengthens the cardiovascular system, tunes and energizes the chakras, and leads to deep relaxation and well-being. When spoken to another person, the word "Namaste" is commonly accompanied by a slight bow made with hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointed upwards, in front of the chest.
This matching set of three wrist malas, handcrafted with responsibly sourced, Fair Trade and cruelty-free materials, balances earthy brown African trade beads with colorful, high-quality faceted gemstone beads. Made of ultra-thin vinyl with no white or transparent border, they create a hand-painted look on any surface and are removable and reusable. Coral smells of Dolma Cedarwood, turquoise of Canyon Mist and saffron of White Tea Bergamot. Guerguerian studied in the Himalayas with traditional healers, developing "methods for inducing states of healing and meditation" with the "vibrational essence" of the singing bowls. No chemicals like detergents, surfactants, sulfates, alcohol or sugar solutions have been added.
A team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers documented that the structural changes in the brain were actually produced by the regular periods of focused attention during meditation, according to a study in the January 30 issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.
But those investigations could not document that those differences were actually produced by meditation. In addition to weekly meetings that included practice of mindfulness meditation – which focuses on nonjudgmental awareness of sensations, feelings and state of mind – participants received audio recordings for guided meditation practice and were asked to keep track of how much time they practiced each day. The analysis of MR images, which focused on areas where meditation-associated differences were seen in earlier studies, found increased grey-matter density in the hippocampus, known to be important for learning and memory, and in structures associated with self-awareness, compassion and introspection. Daily, I was affected by Panic Attacks which were triggered from the news and all it's negative content.
A few months ago I realized that I was getting really bogged down by all the terror and destruction that hit me first thing in the morning, and throughout my day. I felt constantly worried and agitated and it was hard to enjoy doing things I loved to do. I feel like I can never truly be happy as I always get this sense of encroaching doom and most of my fears are heightened by media sensationalism. When I read it I can see how my prayers for worldwide peace and tolerance are being answered.
Michael Vick, steroids, exorbitant contracts, etc.) I'm glad to see GNN come out with a sports section to report all of the good things that are happening in the world of sports. A Christian message is one of "good news' and our congregants thrive hearing these news items from the real world. Working in the mental health field means, among other things, passing along helpful tools like your site.
I check your website everyday and it gives me hope, comfort, and reassurance more than words can say. As a chaplain at a life care retirement community, I lead a discussion group on current news with seniors each week. I am SO thrilled to be able to show him stories on your Website and talk to him about the positive, Good work that is occurring here on Earth.


We've had a worldwide economic downturn, and people are confused, fearful and just so ready for good news.
It lifts my heart, gives me courage, and renews my belief in ALL humankind when I read the stories you highlight. A good meditation practice is any one that develops awareness or mindfulness of our body and our sense, of our mind and heart. Every miracle, every sermon, every word of forgiveness or challenge—none of them makes sense apart from the cross.
Look upon this ravaged rabbi, and see here your eternal King, the One through whom all things were created.
The materials and processes used to make these items are animal-friendly, earth-friendly, ethically sourced, re-envisioned and promote personal wellness and growth. Hand-woven in the ancient region of northern India where yoga was born, the mats are signed by the artisans who make them. She especially enjoyed buying items in small villages, where she could talk with local craftspeople as they worked on their pieces. Amethyst is meditative and calming, carnelian promotes healthy choices and amazonite attracts positive energy.
A set of MR brain images were also taken of a control group of non-meditators over a similar time interval.
Participant-reported reductions in stress also were correlated with decreased grey-matter density in the amygdala, which is known to play an important role in anxiety and stress. Sometimes, the measure of our work as journalists is not the professional recognition of colleagues, but rather the mark we make in the hearts of readers who see our work. Now, with the Good News Network set as my homepage, I see first the good that goes on in the world and my attitude and state of mind are much better. Thank you for lifting my spirits, after only 10 minutes of reading I felt better about the world in which we live. I am back in fine form, and your site really helps me stay positive and focused on my business. Perspective is everything, and despite what appears in mainstream news, good does happen - a lot more than I was lead to believe.
They are overloaded with the bad news, and even though we don't want to have our heads in the sand, we need to hear some good news. You have given me a safe place where I can allow my son to browse and follow the stories that interest him. Then I found your site and after reading the first story I immediately felt my spirits lift and I never went home sad again.
In such a world of ups and downs and sometimes unbelievable craziness I can always count on GNN to keep me in the uplifted, grateful and inspired zone! And today, we are invited to join millions of people all over the world in gazing upon the Lamb who was slain for our sin. See how this prayer, which he breathed with his dying breath, was but the full expression of a lifetime of yielding to his Father. See your high priest seated in heaven, even now constantly interceding for you, just as he did on the cross. Although no change was seen in a self-awareness-associated structure called the insula, which had been identified in earlier studies, the authors suggest that longer-term meditation practice might be needed to produce changes in that area. I think we don't know what the bombardment of crime and violence does to our minds, I think we're in denial about it.
Now I’m excited about all the wonderful things around the world, instead of feeling helpless. Reading ordinary news we get a sense that that's all there is, but your site reminds us the world is not as bad as the news would lead us to believe.
Made from high-grade, locally sourced cotton thread colored beautifully with non-toxic dyes, they're hand-woven without the use of electricity by masters of the craft who hand sign each mat.
None of these changes were seen in the control group, indicating that they had not resulted merely from the passage of time. We need to know that our efforts are paying off, that we can build a paradise -- and we’re doing it.
