Eva Kroon Pike was chosen. She was a dream before she was ever held. At the tender age of ten weeks, Eva was adopted into a loving family that had been waiting and praying for eight years. "These circumstances nurtured Eva into the singer/songwriter she is today with an extraordinary spirit, a compassion for people, a passion to share the gospel, a heart for God, and an awesome voice," as Dr. Jay Dennis, Pastor, Church at the Mall, Lakeland, Florida states. Her vocals are powerful, yet engaging, versatile and unwavering, melodic and soul wrenching. Diversity describes Eva's music style from contemporary to choral, traditional to country, and southern gospel. Eva's life growing up in Central Florida has been influenced by the multiplicity of people which has led to an ability to relate her passions and convictions with soul.
"Grace That Chose Me", the title song of Eva's 2010 album, describes the essence of who she is and an ultimate thank-you to her parents for choosing her to be a part of their family over twenty-eight years ago. She co-wrote this album together with Don Koch, songwriter and producer from Nashville who continues to play a significant part in her music. Eva's album was released to radio in January 2011. In November of 2012 Eva released her very own Christmas single to radio titled “Christmas Revolution.” Eva's newest album titled Love Is All About You was released to radio February 2013. "As much as my first album, Grace That Chose Me, impacted my life and those who heard the message through song, this new album has had so much more of an impact on my life in just the short time I've had the songs and allowed others to hear them." Eva is very excited about 2014 and what God has planned for her ministry.

Bunny Sings Wolf - Spiritual Traditional Adopted Sister to Chief Richard "Charging Bear" Grass - Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Grand Treaty Chief and Traditional Spiritual Sovereign of the Seven Council Fires (Oceti Sakowin), Blackfoot Band, bloodline descendent of Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, White Swan
Most of Bunny Sings Wolf's ORIGINAL SONGS (upwards of 130 at last count) have "arrived" usually at 3:00 a.m., in the form of dreams since Bunny has been living in the Black Hills. Waking her from deep sleep - playing in her head - complete with words and music, she records them, to learn and share later. In honoring this unique music gift, Bunny feels a solemn responsibility to the Creator to use her voice and carry these songs to as many people as possible.
From generations of a very musical-artistic family, poetry and song seemed a natural part of her life near the peach orchards and crop landscapes where she grew up in the rural farming country of Northern California. It was a slower time when people of all ages from very diverse cultural backgrounds enjoyed spending time together, sharing stories and experiences, laughing and appreciating the antics of the dogs, cats and horses living on the land.
A favorite part of each day for Bunny was sunrise and sunset when she would take long barefoot walks to her favorite large, old cottonwood tree at the edge of the field near her home. There she wrote music, listened to the songs of the wind rustling through the leaves...
Date rape and acquaintance rape are forms of sexual assault involving coercive sexual activities perpetrated by an acquaintance of the rape survivor. The perpetrator is almost always a man, and though both men and women can be raped, women are most often the targets of this violence. It is difficult, because of a lack of research on the subject and the tendency for rape survivors not to report attacks, to come up with precise statistics on male survivors. Date and acquaintance rape can happen to or be perpetrated by anyone. Incidences are very high: they comprise from 80-85% percent of all reported rapes. However, even these figures are not reliable. According to conservative FBI statistics, only 40% of all forms of rape are even reported.Date and acquaintance rape is quite prevalent on campuses. One in four college women has been raped; that is, has been forced, physically or verbally, actively or implicitly, to engage in sexual activity. A 2000 study revealed that 90% of college rape survivors knew their attacker before the incident. The values adopted by the dominant society dictate inherent differences between men and women. Women are expected to be passive, unassertive, and dependent. Similarly, men are constrained in their behavior. They are taught to be aggressive, even intimidating, strong, and relentless. They are taught not to take no for an answer. Men who accept or unwittingly exhibit this kind of behavior are likely to misinterpret a woman's communications. Typically, the man will decide that the woman is acting coy or hard to get in a sexual situation. He may believe that she really means yes, although she has been saying no.Communication is the most important avenue to understanding another person's desires and needs -- often the rapist will ignore the woman's attempts at communication, will misinterpret them and continue his actions.If a person says no and is still coerced or forced into having sex, then a rape has occurred.
On Thursday July 10th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
continue our discussion of the Western psychic center (chakra) arrangement established by Boehme and Gitchel based on the Qabalah in relation to the Eastern (an adopted Western) sequence based on Alchemy. Again our guest will be Frater Osiris. We will look at the Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkrutz and conjecture what the secret "Key" to its symbolism might be. We will examine David Goddard's "Tower of Alchemy" in relation to these themes and attempt to reconcile the practice of both systems. This will be an exploratory symposium which may generate as many questions as it answers, but we at least promise to
stimulate your mind -- so tune in and we will at least try to define the mysteries even if we cannot solve them.
