    Growing Aloud: Dr. Robert Forman

    in Spirituality

    To grow aloud is to truly BE, openly. The greatest gift we can give to ourselves and to others is to BE who we truly ARE, more and more completely. Dr. Robert Forman is one of the top experts on Mysticism in the world, as well as the creator of the SoulJazz program, bringing soul to life and relationships. He is the author of the highly acclaimed memoir Enlightenment Ain't What It's Cracked Up to Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul, an exploration of his fascinating 39+ year spiritual journey.

    The Founder and Director of the Forge Institute for Spirituality & Social Change, Robert has 20 years experience as a Professor of Comparative Religions, with a PhD from Columbia University and professorships at City University of New York and Vassar College. He is the author of over ten books, as well as the Co-Founder of the Journal on Consciousness Studies.

    The life-changing lessons Robert has to convey are intensely authentic, personal and heartfelt. He also provides one-on-one assistance through his spiritual counseling practice.

    Chrisette Michele: Five Months Later,
    I STILL Haven’t Got My Grammy!

    Good things come to those who wait. And wait. And wait – and are still waiting as we speak. So goes the tale of R&B diva Chrisette Michele, upon whom, on Feb. 8, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences bestowed Best Urban/Alternative Performance honors. Otherwise put, girl snagged a Grammy.

    It was Chrisette’s first, for the track Be OK, after having been nominated two years ago in the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, for If I Have My Way.But this week on Mutha Knows, she revealed a frustrastion with the honor.

    “Where’s it at? Where you got that Grammy?” asked host Mutha. “I haven’t gotten it yet,” said Chrisette. “It’s on its way somewhere in a box from Fedex – on its way to my house? I don’t know.” “Wow! How long does it take?” said Mutha. “I have no idea! And when was it – February? We in July now. I ain’t gonna say nothin’ crazy, though,” promised Chrisette. But then she added: “No, I’m nice and, ahm, calm.”
