he legendary Goffeny twins –Taleon & Keyon– hit the mainstream community with a huge bang in the mid 2000’s. Taleon was rumoured to be straight, while Keyon was very open about his sexuality. Sexual preference didn’t make much of a difference when it came to the legions of adoring fans and friends, because both brothers possessed a rare and stunning manly beauty, that honestly only comes around once every generation. Their Myspace pages were filled with friends, professional pictures and messages from all over the world. To add to their mystique, on the outside, it appeared they also had a very lucrative and successful modelling career. Keyon was known to work with major brands and scored a deal with Ralph Lauren. It appeared to be a glamorous lifestyle of traveling, shopping, cars, sex, drugs and rock & roll. The brothers dabbled in gay , but even that was an asset. Gay in those years was not what it is today. In those days, adult production companies generally only scouted the most attractive, healthy, exclusive and desired within the community. So the short time they spent in was yet another notch under their belt to the fantasizing public. All seemed well to the public and then one day we all woke up to national news reports indicating that a set of gay twin stars had been apprehended on burglary charges. The scandal shock the community, and even the world for that matter. Their joint mug shots were splattered across the media. Like most sandals, today it’s the talk of the town and tomorrow it’s forgotten. Keyon, was eventually released from custody, and after a year or so, he slowly transitioned back into the community and took off once again, regaining his career as an allegedly successful working model/escort. But no one ever really heard anything else about Taleon… until now.

Heather Ballentine is a charming, talented, and down-to-earth Southern belle. She is also an entrepreneur, singer/songwriter, pin-up model, and actress. Her life long pursuit of excellence began in Arkansas where she was born. She grew up with passion for performing, and always knew what she was meant to do. Her mother was named after Marilyn Monroe, which sparked Heather’s interest in pin up fashion, culture and lifestyle. Her father, a musician with a fondness for retro music, encouraged her to listen to artists such as Elvis, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Wanda Jackson, and Buddy Holly, all of whom became Heather’s musical influences.
During University, Heather began modelling and was selected for the Catalina Swimwear campaign which featured her in advertisements and on the runway. However, she soon realized that her curvy figure would not be embraced by mainstream agencies. Rather than be discouraged, she embraced her own pin up style and it became her mission to send a message that curves are cool. She placed top-ten in the Miss Arkansas Pageant, and was the overall swimsuit winner, which assisted in paying for her education. After graduation, Heather was cast to star as “Ado Annie” in Discoveryland USA’s production of “Oklahoma”.

Neuroscience has discovered that we have complex, adaptive and functional brains in both our heart and gut, called the cardiac and enteric brains respectively. Science is finally catching up with deep insights from esoteric and spiritual traditions informing us for thousands of years about these three powerful intelligences of head, heart and gut. Using methodologies from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Cognitive Linguistics and Behavioural Modelling, and the latest Neuroscientific discoveries, the newly emerging field of mBIT (multiple Brain Integration Techniques) has codified a powerful system for communicating with and integrating the wisdom and intelligence of your multiple brains. Tune in to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston RN is joined by authors Grant Soosalu and Marvin Oka to discuss their best selling book, "mBraining Using Your Multiple Brains To Do Cool Stuff"!
