Natural Awakenings Atlanta

Deep Dives

Here at Natural Awakenings, we like exploring subjects in depth; living on the surface will not lead to true awakenings... Deep dives are the way to go. 

But the magazine format does not favor deep dives, so we lean on two ways to go deep: Special Sections, which is our term for the treatment of a topic that includes at least three articles in the same issue, and Series, two or more articles on a topic that are published in consecutive months. 

The following are the deep dives we’ve published since September 2017.  

Healing the Trauma of Slavery – A Special Section

February 2021

A 12-page, four-article + sidebar + resource page exploration of the ongoing trauma experienced by African Americans as a function of centuries of servitude, humiliation, and neglect. We look into the possibility of genetic memory as factor in sustaining trauma and maladaptive behavior; at the works of Dr. Joy DeGruy, author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury & Healing, and Resmaa Menakem, author of My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies; healing modalities and obstacles to healing.  

Ayurveda – A Three-Part Series

Sept – Nov 2019

Ayurveda, along with Traditional Chinese Medicine, is one of two ancient healing enhancement and maintenance systems in the world. With millennia of experience and success, a large portion of the West still has much to learn from the East about health, wellness, and living in alignment with nature. ~ In our series we look at body composition—the Doshas; digestive health, the key to overall health; and panchakarma, the variety of Ayurvedic therapies. Plus, we catalog all of our additional Ayurveda articles that follow up the initial series.    


Energy Healing – A Special Section

April 2019

A 12-page, five-article, two-sidebar exploration of touchless energy healing. We look at the different modalities of energy healing, the most common conditions for which people seek out energy healing, a personal look at the experience of energy healing from practitioners and their clients, the balance between male and female energy, and an overview of books on the subject.
