When I was sixteen, I set off on an adventure that would bring me to where I am today. Leaving my family farm on Vancouver Island, I hitchhiked across BC to this festival that I had only heard tales about around campfires in the early mornings. That festival was Shambhala. Up to this point in my life, I had felt very alone, I grew up in paradise, but a paradise that lacked one major thing… Community. For most my youth it was just my brother and I.

Welcome to Kailasa Kailasa is a group of Social Architects and Cultural Pioneers uniting to provide concrete examples of how we can live and thrive in peace and harmony, with ourselves and with our environment. To do this, we are creating a diversity of intentional communities, with sustainability, education, and health and nutrition as the core concepts. The members of the Kailasa team have made the restructuring of our society and culture a primary focus of life, only to be set aside to attend to the persistent nagging to generate enough income to satisfy the "cost of living" in the current socioeconomic system. Unlike most for-profit corporations where the employees are compensated for their "40 hours a week," our team members are living and breathing this, even while they are at their day job.
Note from Fauna: The following post and collection of photographs spread on the Chinese internet in 2008. On Tianya , Mop , LiuLiu (and many other Chinese forums): Reflections in the midst of extreme poverty and filth — a record of a trip in India India is the dirtiest country I have ever been to. I have heard people say that Pakistan, which is to the west and Bangladesh, to the east, are worse, but that is probably beyond the limits of my imagination.
Matt Dorfman Not long ago I was offered work as a quality-control expert with an American company in China I’d never heard of. No experience necessary—which was good, because I had none.

At last, we have reached the end of the classic Mayan Long Count calendar, the 5,125-year cycle that ends on December 21 of this year. The mainstream media has, predictably, used the occasion to ridicule the straw man they irresponsibly helped to set up: That this was a doomsday threshold, as silly as Y2K. At the same time, the worst and best predictions of alternative theorists ranging from Graham Hancock to Paul LaViolette to Jose Arguelles, Terence McKenna, John Major Jenkins, David Wilcock, and Carl Johan Calleman have failed to materialize. Apparently, a galactic superwave is not engulfing our planet, as LaViolette proposed.

Organizational behavior refers to the way that people, either as individuals or in groups, behave within the context of an organization. Psychological theories, meanwhile, seek to explain the reasons people behave as they do. The intersection of organizational behavior and psychological theory provides insight into why people act as they do in the context of work. Such insight can help leaders create environments conducive to better performance. Specific psychological theories have different relationships with organizational behaviors.
