Revised Deadlines for editorial content


Greetings to All,


I just wanted to take a moment to bring everyone up to date regarding the status of The Art Of Health magazine.  Our content is complete and I would like to thank everyone for their contributions.  It is indeed an honor to be associated with such a special group of individuals who are willing to take time out of their busy schedules to be a part of a new magazine.  Everyone that accepted my columnist invitation accepted.  I'm told, that's an incredible feat.


We are now awaiting feedback from the various PBS stations.  Their pledge drives will conclude at the end of March and we anticipate subscriptions to come in the first week of April.  We are ready to print the first issue now and when we have the PBS lists we will send the magazine to press.  Our turn-around is typically one week, from printer delivery to postal placement.  The earliest the magazine will go out will be April 9th.  Hopefully, everything will come together as planned.


Due to the timing of this first issue, our editorial calendar will change.  Following are the new deadlines for upcoming issues:

Thank you all for your generous contributions.  Years ago, one of my mentors shared something with me that profoundly affected my life and became the cornerstone of all my realities.  In all that we do, we are either contributing to the constructive survival values of the Universe or the destructive values.  At the moment he shared his wisdom with me I made the choice to add to the constructive side of things.  I believe there are many people today (especially those of you receiving this email) that are adopting this attitude and that we are all a part of a critical mass that is gaining momentum to reveal a new, evolved reality.  And, while we can always count on change, the big question is not “if” a new reality is budding, but how that new reality will be built—through primary constructive values or through an extension of the present destructive values extolled by our society today.  So, that’s my “big picture” and that’s what I’m trying to accomplish—to add as much to the constructive side of things as I can.  If there aren’t people like you and I out there doing that then our “potentials” remain hidden and unfulfilled.  I look forward to working with you all in future issues.  If I can be of service, please feel free to call.  Until again,


Be Well,



Steve Below
