The mother of the eight babies born recently has been under fire for her decision to have additional children on top of the six she already has. This, combined with her current unstable financial situation, has raised serious ethical questions. What do you believe are the moral and ethical implications of her actions? And from your faith’s point of view, what covenant, if any, could she have violated? After listening to television news reports and interviews with Ms. Nadya Suleman, mother of the octuplets, I decided to take this information into prayer and meditation.

At around 2 p.m. Saturday, a line of people could be seen walking slowly and silently down Kenneth Road, some wearing conical straw hats and others with the word "Peace" written on a sheet of paper taped to their clothing. Though it may have seemed to be an unusually quiet peace rally, the scene was in fact a demonstration of being at peace, put on by Glendale's Yoga at the Village in association with the Los Angeles chapter of Peace is Every Step — a group that holds these "walking meditation" events throughout the Los Angeles area.

The beauty of nature is the common theme for the painters showing their works this month at Descanso Gardens Boddy House Gallery. Half Dome in Yosemite was the inspiration of Eagle Rock artist Dory Grade's painting "Half Dome Yosemite, Perhaps the Shoulder of God," a highlight of her show "Art and Soul." "It's such a spiritual thing to me, to see it rising out of the mist, and it's more than a familiar icon, it's truly a symbol for meditation," said Grade, who is celebrating her 32nd year showing at the La Cañada Flintridge gallery.

Four chants of “om” and a song of “Glory, Glory Hallelujah” closed the Self Realization Fellowship’s first service at its new Glendale temple Sunday. The sacred Hindu intonation and Christian song were a part of the group’s inclusive practice, which is based on the idea that God exists within all beings, said the Rev. Brother Satyananda, the leader of the congregation. The fellowship, founded in 1920 by Indian theologian Paramahansa Yogananda, draws from a combination of religious teachings, focusing on meditative components of yoga while referring primarily to Christian and Hindu scriptures to highlight its message, Satyananda said.

When you are an under-employed actor teaching traffic safety to 5-year-olds and your octogenarian boss makes a pass at you, it's not surprising to feel as if life is on a rather downward spiral. Irish-born stage and screen actor Johnny O'Callaghan found himself in that dismal place nearly seven years ago. Most widely known as “Niam” on the Syfy channel series “Stargate Atlantis,” O'Callaghan had lost his part-time teaching job, his personal life was a mess, and he was sweating out a lull between acting jobs.

Alice Shinmoto knows the benefits of exercise. Every week, she does tai chi, and she's not alone when it comes to the ancient Chinese martial art. The Glendale resident teaches tai chi to seniors at the Glendale Adult Recreation Center twice a week. Her class meets outdoors underneath the shade of the trees.
