The Power of One

Posted by on Nov 17, 2013 in Blog, Inspiration | Comments Off on The Power of One

One song can spark a moment
One flower can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring
One smile begins a friendship
One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at sea
One word can frame the goal
One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom
One step must start each journey
One word must start a prayer
One hope will raise our spirits
One touch can show you care
One voice can speak with wisdom
One heart can know what’s true
One Life can make a difference

Drummer Boy

Posted by on Nov 13, 2013 in Blog, Drumming | Comments Off on Drummer Boy

World Beat or “Whirled Beat” ~ this drummer boy definitely has it! He is videoed here in 2012 at the age of 10 drumming on a washing machine. Dan Carollo is the creator of this video, and has this to say:

“Seattle-area boy (age 10 at time of publish) enjoys exploring the undiscovered, percussive sounds of household appliances. He also owns a Pearl drum kit (as well as a Pearl cajon), has been taking lessons for over a year, but is mainly self-taught in general percussion. His main inspirations are Neil Peart and Buddy Rich.

This video has been featured on CNN video, MSN videos, USA Today, The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Daily Mail (UK), The Huffington Post, and Time Magazine Online, The Blaze and many others. Jonathan also performed live on the Steve Harvey Show in Chicago (aired April 23, 2013).

If you’re a curious washing machine geek, it’s a Speed Queen, super-capacity plus, 14-cycle washer with stainless steel drum. Great for reverberation and for getting your socks brilliant white!” (more…)

The Five Tibetan Rites

Posted by on Nov 6, 2013 in Blog, Fitness | Comments Off on The Five Tibetan Rites

Welcome to the program of the “Fountain of Youth”!  Raageshwari shows us how in the “Do It Along” video below ~ Enjoy!

Carolanne Wright of Thrive-Living explains the ancient “youthing” practice of The Five Tibetan Rites (aka T5T) in the paragraphs below:

“If you need more zest and zip in your life, the secret to these states and more can be found in a set of simple (yet profound) yogic exercises known as the “Five Tibetans.” Developed by Buddhist monks and brought to the West in the 1930s, Tibetan yoga is a series of five movements that improve digestion and circulation while dispelling fatigue and depression. Advocates of the practice rave about the boundless energy, clarity and vitality the short daily sessions produce. And many also believe Tibetan yoga reverses the hands of time, promoting an ageless and disease free body. Yoga in general has long been associated with reduced tension, stress and anxiety in those who regularly practice. A study in the Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment and Health found that a single 60-minute session of yoga once per week improved feelings of clarity, energy, confidence and resistance to workplace stress after six weeks of participation. Since stress strongly contributes to the development of disease, the health implications of yoga are impressive.

Tibetan yoga is unique, as the benefits are felt almost immediately with minimal time investment. The five yogic exercises are said to quickly balance the hormonal system, which, in turn, promotes longevity, deflects disease and slows aging. The poses are simple to learn and take less than ten minutes to complete. If you are on medication or have serious health issues, consult with your health care practitioner before attempting any exercise routine. It’s best to begin slowly. Start with one repetition of each exercise and gradually increase to a maximum of twenty-one each.”
