Paraview Presents:
Conscious Planet: Our New Monthly Media Guide

Over the last year we have entered not only an era of increased insecurity, but we?ve also experienced the burst of the Internet bubble, the slowing economy, and the accounting scandals of Enron. What are we to make of the consequences of these events? Who can we trust if we can no longer put our faith in financial analysts and accountants, let alone FBI agents, INS officials, and some representatives of the clergy? 

This month we?re focusing on financial well-being and developing and utilizing spirituality to achieve that well-being. We?re featuring an interview with financial astrologer and forecasting guru Henry Weingarten, who shows us where the economy is heading and how astrology can play a role in gaining self-awareness and financial strength. Author and financial advisor Chellie Campbell shares two stories from her latest book, The Wealthy Spirit,  which will send us on a path toward personal enlightenment and wealth in mind, body, and spirit. Banker Gary Markoff shows in a video clip how the environment can teach us lessons about our lives and the stock market.

Despite this month?s financial emphasis, we haven?t lost our spiritual focus. Our featured Paraview Literary Agency client is Michael Peter Langevin, the founder and publisher of Magical Blend magazine, who is celebrating the release of his new book, Secrets of the Ancient Incas.  We?re also providing a sneak peek at our next Paraview Press book, Flowers that Heal by Judy Griffin, Ph.D., a delightful take on nutrition, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, and much, much more.

Finally, since this newsletter is a media guide, I am also proud to announce a personal change to the media landscape. Paraview?s founder and shining star Sandra Martin will add a new color to her rainbow of activities. She has joined Wisdom Media as their Senior Vice President of Content, responsible for their TV, radio, and Internet programming. As she will continue to be involved with Paraview, we look forward to an expanded cooperation among the authors, books, and team of Paraview with the media activities of Wisdom. In case you do not receive Wisdom Media yet on your cable or satellite dish, do visit their website, where you will see that Wisdom is the only network integrating Mind, Body, Spirit, and Earth to promote a quality lifestyle. What better place for Sandra Martin to land and add her insights and skills! We wish her all the best, and look forward to working with her in this new capacity.
