    power of perception with Paul Hume Brewster

    in Spirituality

    had studied to be an accountant, but found the business world not to be of my liking, so became a teacher of accounting instead, and taught for 22 years before retiring at 57 to write about what I had learned over a period of approximately 25 – 30 years. I had bought many spiritual books in which I found the answers I was seeking, and spent many years studying them, particularly A Course in Miracles and Love Without End – Jesus Speaks, authored by Glenda Green. I came to understand that much of what we have been taught by the church and the sciences that dealt with the universe was open to question, and in the end, had a strong desire to put my thoughts about the universe, the mind/body relationship, ego, and consciousness into a book where I could draw all that I’d read in other spiritual books together so as to bring a more unified understanding of who we are, what our purpose is, and the reason we are here to the people, and so wrote The Profound Truth of Divine Existence – A New Modern Teaching.
    I have not openly discussed much of what is in the book I have written with people, except for my youngest son. He became a sounding board for my concepts and ideas, and I spent a number of years talking with him during the evenings at home here, in order to hear what he thought of them, and to also clarify in my own mind how to present them in a manner that could be understood by those who sought the spiritual path to life. Some of it is quite complex, and requires an open mind if one wishes to accept the concepts into their being.
    I have written my second book Innocent and True Perception, but it has not been published yet, and probably won’t be until later in the year, as I wish to see how my first book goes.

    power of perception Music with Irenka

    in Spirituality

    Here is my bio :


     


    "Music is the plant that makes life more breathable" and "Changing the world one song at a time" are some of Irenka's mottos. She's not the conventional rebel, no tattoos, no BS, but she certainly doesn't fear crossing the ocean on her own and defying the charts with lovely titles like "A Reason To Hate Me", the sarcastic jazzy tune "I Don't Need No Lover" or her darkest track "It Burns" about physical abuse.


    A true artist on a mission, a modern gypsy who loves to surprise, challenge the status quo, and utilize the power of music to relieve pain, bring joy and laughter, all while making you dance, sing and everything in between.


     


    From the streets of Brussels, Belgium, to Paris, from Paris to England, from England to the United States, it's no surprise her colorful music crosses borders and genres with such ease. Whether playing Jimmy Van Zant's benefit concert in Alabama, an indie music festival in Bisbee, Arizona, sharing the stage with the Leftovers in San Francisco, or with Colin Huntley and Livision in Austin, Irenka will put on a show, for any crowd, any stage, any day. Her shows include some crowd interaction and is pretty edgy, moody and eclectic from pop to jazz, rock, hip hop, industrial and dark electro. Always there to surprise you with the unexpected.


     


    Baked out of ROCK and SOUL, POP and HEART. It's sweet and sour, it's warm but fresh, it's cheesy then spicy. Ready to have a taste?.....

    Power of Perception with Jamie Blue Sun Yellow Sky

    in Spirituality

    Here's a little bit about the book:


     


    Hailed as “One of the best technical painters of our time” by an L.A. Times critic, 27-year-old Aubrey Johnson is finally gaining traction with her work. But as she weaves through what should be a celebration of her art, a single nagging echo of her doctor’s words refuses to stay silent—there is no cure. In less than eight weeks Aubrey is going blind. 

    Traveling on a one-way ticket around the world with childhood friend Jeff Anderson, Aubrey is in complete denial. But a blindfolded game of tasting foreign foods in China jolts her into confronting the reality of her situation. So begins her quest. 

    In this adult coming-of-age story, Aubrey struggles to make sense of her crippling diagnosis. But on her journey she finds a deeper understanding of herself and her life—sometimes fragmented and complex, but always with relentless truth. 


     


    The theme of the book is perception. It's about how our perceptions are changed by circumstances we have no control over and how overcome obstacles by changing the way we perceive new challenges

    power of perception coaching with Beau Chatham

    in Spirituality

    My name is Beau Chatham and I am a Master Coach with The Burris Institute.I am also the CEO & Tribal Leader of Warrior Life Coach, an Atlanta, GA-based executive coaching practice, where I work with business professionals, athletes, and combat veterans.A little bit about my background – I was a commissioned Infantry officer in the United States Army.  I am Airborne Ranger qualified, saw ground combat in Grenada during Operation Urgent Fury, and served in numerous other command and training positions.I left military service after 10 years and found myself in the world of biotech and pharmaceutical commercialization, where I marketed injection and oral drug therapies. I also served as a corporate trainer, where I conducted and coordinated medical education programs for sales representative, focusing in the areas of anatomy, physiology, and disease state management.  My areas of teaching were in cardiovascular and neurological disorders.  It was here, that I was first introduced to the concept of Evidence-Based therapies and how important they are in gaining measurable outcomes.   This is what ultimately led me to finding The Burris Institute methods of coaching. remember following the country’s combat actions of post 9-11, not from the newspaper or the talking heads on the TV, but rather through medical journals.  Of particular note, I recall the longitudinal studies of Dr Charles Hoge published October of 2004, in the New England Journal of Medicine that addressed the growing mental health burden being produced from extended combat operations.As a warrior and medical educator, I knew that I wanted to help our returning combat veterans, so I started looking in to life skills coaching.  The problem was that so many of the life coaching schools insisted that coaching was for “healthy” people and that the emotional states of fear, guilt, and anger were best suited for psychiatry.

    power of perception with S.C. Alban

    in Spirituality

     


    Short Bio.


    S.C. Alban was born and raised in Northern California. After graduating from San Francisco State University, where she majored in English literature, S.C. Alban travelled for a year. She ultimately moved back to Northern California where she obtained two Education Specialist credentials and a M.A. in Education. However, her passion for writing never died.


    After reading an article about another writer’s success story, she was inspired to write again for pleasure. Motivated to push her skills to the next level, she began to develop her first novel. Her first break came when some of her poetry was published in Coalesce Literary Magazine, an online publication. And though it took many years of revision and re-crafting (and many rejection letters), her novel, A Life Without Living, was picked up by Solstice Shadows. A Life Without Living is a paranormal urban fantasy and debuted on December 5, 2014.


    Most recently, the first of five short stories in a series titled The Woman Inside was published in February 2015, by Summer Solstice. Unlike A Life Without Living, The Woman Inside series comments on various contemporary women’s issues. The first story, Sara, has had a stretch in the Amazon Best Sellers Top 100 List for its specific category.


    These days, S.C. spends every minute she can squeeze into imagining fantastic realities for her characters, who are very real parts of her life. She is an avid hiker, loves to garden and a relentless dreamer. Both of S.C.’s titles are available through Amazon and the Solstice Publishing website. Additionally, A Life Without Living is available on Barnes and Noble online.

    power of perception with Jimmy Packers

    in Spirituality

    Jimmy is a unique artist with over 20 years in the music industry. He has worked with such artists as Zebra, the Good Rats, Steve Morse, Robin Trower, Blackfoot, Wendy O. Williams, Loudness, Queensryche and producers Nile Rogers and Tom Werman.
    Don't bother looking for a pigeonhole into which Jimmy Packes will fit. He just lives to rock and he rocks out how he wants. Which means he gets heavy with hard rock and metal, lays out the soulful blues grooves and just keeps it real with honest, straight up rock-and-roll energy. Packes packs a sound that sucker punches you in the gut and leaves you bleeding and begging for more.
    Packes has been courted to play guitar for Ozzy Osbourne, Guns N Roses, Never the Bride, Faith No More, David Lee Roth, 21 Guns and others. Touring has carried him across the country and around the world. Packes is also the co-owner of Azimuth Jag Records (New York and London). The UK press declared him one of the leading instrumental guitarists on the globe following the release of his “Axxe to Grind” release and he was also invited to the Montreaux Jazz Festival. He has announced the forthcoming release of new music and is spending time teaching guitar, bass, band classes and vocal coaching at The Music Vault Academy in Southern California. Packes co-owns and is head engineer/producer at Holy Grail Studios at Nyack, NY.  
    “Guitarists at the pinnacle of their craft are few and far between. Let's just say it's been a long time since someone like Packes has come along and there aren't too many like him.”

    power of perception writers with April Erwin

    in Spirituality


    “Dream big, be bold, no fear! April Erwin is the author of suspenseful and humorous inspirational contemporary stories that reflect her faith and life motto. A lifelong resident of Independence, MO, April loves living in her hometown. Raised in the Gospel, she's thrilled to achieve her dream to become a writer and use that to witness of her Christian faith. She holds an Associate in Graphological Science, the study of handwriting analysis, tutors dyslexic and reading challenged individuals, enjoys photography, is a singer/songwriter and records original music with her sister, Angel. Also the author of Dysfunction Junction and Missing Pieces, Justice Burning is her third published novel.”
    Music has been an integral part of my life forever. I started singing in an A cappella trio called, The Erwins, with my mom and sister when I was about 11. I began writing songs in 2001, when Angel and I joined and recorded our first two original songs. "Free to Fly" and "Rain on Me".
    I started writing my first "book" about bunnies in First grade. In the Fifth grade and I filled 3 notebooks by hand telling a suspense story. My Senior year in high school I saw a scene in my mind of a young woman in an attic exploring a trunk that had been left to her as part of an inheritance. At first it was just the scene, but soon it expanded and after several years of writing classes, I published Missing Pieces. It was adapted as a school play by my high school Alma Mater where the story was first born.
    Dysfunction Junction was my second book about a Romantic Comedy about a young songwriter looking for love.
    After high school I worked full time and took classes that intrigued me. Writing, photography,  & graphology to name a few.
