Ayurvedic Practitioner Recommendations?

Would really appreciate recommendations for an ayurvedic pratitioner. Brattleboro area preferred, but will travel anywhere in New England to get excellent care. It would be a big plus to find an ayurvedic practioner who accepts Medicare. 

In addition to the recommendation, it would be particularly valuable to understand why you have made a particular recommendations.



How Do You Want To Be Remembered? What Will Your Legacy Be?

Each of us, regardless of our age, has a need to be known, to be remembered, to feel that our lives made a difference and to express our values and our love.

Many of us may have prepared legal wills to distribute our belongings after we die. But few of us have considered leaving a spiritual/ethical will: a record of who we are, a document that can be offered to loved ones either while we are still alive or after we are gone.

Brattleboro Area Hospice invites you to explore and reflect on your legacy in two free events with Claire Willis:


New Midwife Joins Brattleboro OB/GYN

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that midwife Emily Martyn, CNM has joined the staff of Brattleboro OB/GYN and is accepting new patients.

Martyn received her Bachelor of Arts in Dance from Kenyon College in Gambier, OH, her Certificate in Nursing and Masters of Science in Nursing from Yale University School of Nursing in New Haven, CT.

Martyn says that her background in movement and dance piqued her interest in nursing as a career. “I have always been interested in human bodies, in how they work and move. “As a dancer I have seen how humans have an innate sense of what is good and right in their own bodies. I was drawn to being a midwife because I get to help my patients find that in themselves, pregnant or not, and help them advocate for their own bodies.”


Anyone Notice AT&T Cell Reception Worse On Route 30 North Of The Covered Bridge Recently?

Not that it's ever great along the Route 30 corridor, but suddenly my phone isn't picking up signals in places along there where signals had actually improved starting last winter.  Maybe a tower or minicell is malfunctioning?

     Here is a short excerpt from a reprint of an article written by Jim Sleeper for the Huffington Post.  I found it on

     "Once again, we've heard that the gunman was deranged.  Once again, we've heard that gun control is imperative.  What we aren't hearing is that Americans, for many more years and with greater intensity than inhabitants of other countries, have been groped and goosed and pummeled by a sophisticated, multi-trillion dollar drive to short-circuit deliberation and dialogue in order spur the self-centered impulse buying that is ruining our civil society.


The Rise and Fall of The Green Mountain Anarchist Collective

“The chains of authoritarianism and capitalism can only be shattered when they are broken at many links. Vermont is our home, and it serves as the one link that we can access, but it is only one. Any victory here would only be partial. Deliverance to the Promised Land will only come when many more than us rise up against that which holds the multitude in bondage.”

-The Green Mountain Anarchist Collective,
From Neither Washington Nor Stowe

Montpelier, Vermont -Established in 2000, in a cooperative household located at the termination of a wooded dirt road in Southern Vermont, the Green Mountain Anarchist Collective (GMAC), for a time, did its part in carrying forth Vermont’s long tradition of radical, leftist politics. Founded in Windham County by Natasha Voline, Johnny Midnight, Xavier Massot, and (myself) David Van Deusen, the collective was birthed with strong Situationist, leftist, and militant inclinations. The original GMAC nucleus lived together (along with comrades Imelda R, Bridget M, and Ted K), and operated as a kind of outlaw community, connected to the broader area counter culture based in and around Brattleboro.
