Letter from the Publishers
Well, here we are in late summer, Houston! People are taking their last vacation or day trip of the summer before school starts and rushing around making all those purchases to get ready for the start of school. Instead of the usual back-to-school theme, this month’s theme is empowering youth.
Empowering goes beyond teaching or training youth, important as they are. To empower someone, you encourage and allow them to make decisions and enjoy or suffer the consequences. It’s hard to turn loose of the control, the decision making and trust that youth can choose wisely but how else will they ever learn. Empowering also goes beyond the individual child or teen. It implies collective or group action. Leading others is how youth learns to lead and to follow.
As you look for things for your youth to do with the last weeks of their summer vacation and even going into the busy school year, look for activities and groups that promote empowerment. This month’s feature article should give you some ideas.
We, at Natural Awakenings Houston, are still an eco-friendly recycled newsprint paper magazine but we are exploring the cutting edge of the digital frontier as well. Check out our new mobile receptive website. Subscribe to our digital magazine so fewer trees need to be killed. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates. And… empower that tech savvy youth in your family to help you learn to use our new Aurasma app. We are the first magazine in Texas and the first Natural Awakenings magazine in the country to embed video in both our print and digital magazines. Folks, this is so amazing! This little magazine is now cutting edge digital as well.
This is only the beginning. The best is still yet to come. Spread the word. Share it with your friends. We are the go-to place for all things sustainable living, health and fitness in the Houston Metro.

Just open the Aurasma App and point your phone at a page where you see the Aurasma logo and the video will open and appear to hover in space between your phone and the magazine.
