    "That's the Way of Earth Wind & Fire." Danceable, powerful, elegant: Few groups combined these better than the lush harmonies and bracing brass of Earth Wind and Fire! Remember "Reasons," "Shining Star," "Fantasy," "That's the Way of the World," and their funked-out version of the Beatles' "Got to Get You into my Life?" And how "Boogie Wonderland" formed the backdrop for a jam of dancing penguins in the animated film "Happy Feet?" Take a peek inside the brilliant minds that created all these iconic songs, as Eleanor Wyche and Patsy Anderson interview original members of Earth Wind and Fire.

  • The Tufts Get Going! "Small Budget ... Big Business"

    in Marketing

    9 am Eastern, Wednesdays, "The Tufts Get Going!" host Rosanna Tufts:

    "Small Budget ... Big Business." Does your business ambition exceed your financial capacity? It used to be that the only way you could promote your business was through really expensive gatekeepers (newspaper ads, spots on your local radio/TV stations, and the Yellow Pages -- remember them?) Now, it's easier than ever to get your business message in front of thousands of people, for far less cost. But the options are so many, now, that you have to sort through them all, to determine what makes the most sense for YOU. Frederick Johnson is on hand today to talk about how to Grow a Big Business on a Small Budget -- a talk he will be presenting on a national stage at T.D.Jakes' MegaFest in Dallas!

    Going Shamanic: The Sacred Feminine

    in Spirituality

    Today's show features Sheryl Watson (Dawn Heart Sings) in conversation with Jennifer Engracio, your host of Going Shamanic. 

    Sheryl Watson has been a registered massage therapist since 1995 and a massage therapy college instructor since 2001.  Her focus on pelvic health naturally lead her to a path of studies in sacred sexuality, shamanism, the divine feminine, and a gateway of deep self-discovery. Her website is www.reclaimingfeminineconsciousness.com. 

    The Sacred Feminine.

    What is it, really? Why is this topic an important one to discuss at this time of our lives? How does it relate to our daily lives?

    If you're someone who does too much, or finds they have no energy, or perhaps you are exploring how to balance the feminine and masculine aspects of your world, then join this conversation. 

    You will learn that the energy of the feminine isn't exactly what you imagined! It is so much more.

    Your host is Jennifer Engracio, Snow Hawk, who is a shamanic practitioner looking for ways to bring shamanism into everyday life. Find more about Jennifer at www.spiraldanceshamanics.com.
