    in Books

    What is the definition of love? Love is composed of genuine emotions, compassion, loyalty, trust and happiness. Yet in Rebecca Sloan's relationship, love is just another four-letter word in the dictionary. Rebecca is a hardworking mother from Atlanta who provides for her son, while Derek, her worthless man does nothing other than use and abuses her daily. Reluctantly, she accepts whatever he dishes out because she’s afraid of raising her son alone. 
    Her best friend Slinda refuses to sit back and watch her friend be hurt any longer. With Slinda’s help and Felix, a new friend, Rebecca finds the courage to leave Derek and strive for a better life. Will Derek truly let her move on without him? Can Rebecca be able to get past the abuse, lies, and deception? Follow along on the journey of heartbreak and betrayal, with an ending that will blow your mind!

Today's episode will focus on Janis Ian's The Tiny Mouse, Fantasy Faire in SL, Brain Pickings's list of 15 children's books. This Sunday, I'm hosting a special two-hour poetry event with a fellow writer at Fantasy Faire 


    Poetry at Fantasy Faire, April 23-May 3


    Celebrating its seventh year, Fantasy Faire 2015 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 23 to Sunday May 3, treat yourself to eleven days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts, events and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators bring their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.


    The Tiny Mouse by Janis Ian


    About Brain Pickings


    Brain Pickings is a cross-disciplinary LEGO treasure chest, full of pieces spanning art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology, and more; pieces that enrich our mental pool of resources and empower combinatorial ideas that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful. Above all, it’s about how these different disciplines illuminate one another to glean some insight, directly or indirectly, into that grand question of how to live, and how to live well.

    Gathering in Truth - Creating Sacred Spaces with Jason Cohen

    in News

    Today we speak with Jason Cohen, musician and founder of Unifier Festival, about the importance of setting space for genuine human connection and creative expression, visionary culture, and music as medicine. 


    Unifier Festival is held in Tolland, MA, June 11-14, 2015.


    http://unifierfestival.com/


    https://www.facebook.com/UnifierFestival

    BIO: Jason Cohen, the creator of Forestdance, Sacred World Interdependence Day and founder of Unifier Festival has experienced numerous healing and expressive arts rituals around the world.


    His knowledge, experience, sensitivity and training as a ritual facilitator and his life long pursuit of exploring passion and subtlety in music, has led him in service to spark and curate the Unifier Festival Gathering.


    Forestdance at the root of the Unifier lineage has taken place in 7 US states and in Costa Rica! These are powerful  transformational ritual gatherings designed to bring people into their full power through the process of burning off symptomatic energies, coming fulling present, and balancing heart, mind, body and spirit inside and out of the sacred fire circle. When not facilitating one of these gatherings, Jason often is composing and performing with his musical projects Incus and Sacred Side Project, or directing events for the heARTbeat Collective in Jamaica Plain, MA. His latest endeavor is called Unifier Festival, a larger healing and expressive arts festival with a mission that includes bringing people together to create a community owned Land Trust. Jason is a community organizer deeply committed to creating spaces where people can become empowered and inspired.


    Jason has held ceremonial space and studied with many blessed teachers, and takes much of his inspiration from his humble and direct connections to nature and his ancestors.
