"We Are All Connected" was made from sampling Carl Sagan's Cosmos, The History Channel's Universe series, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more. It is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.
OK, you've done the preparation. It's Christmas day, you're driving to the 'event'. What can you do?
First, play something pleasant on the cd in the car - a comedy or calming music. Say positive things to yourself...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Christmas Day, or any special holiday/celebration, can arouse many emotions. You may feel excited and happy to share traditions with family and friends. You might be apprehensive about seeing people that, in the past, have been less than supportive of you. Whether you approach the holidays with joy or fear and loathing, your expectations may not mesh with your fellow celebrants, which is stressful
A Note from ATH Supervising Editor, Sherri Carter: I was so saddened to learn of Layne's passing at the end of October. Here's a wonderful video with Layne talking about her book, When The Drummers Were Women. She starts talking at about the 1:47 mark. Her beautiful spirit will be missed.
Editor's Note from Bernice Chu:Some of our readers may have seen the British Paraorchestra featured in the closing ceremonies of the Paralympics 2012. I wanted to take this time to really spotlight an incredibly inspiring and creative group of young individuals. I believe creativity and motivation has officially been redefined!
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is the head of the Shambhala Buddhist lineage, a spiritual and family lineage that descends through his family, the Mukpo clan. “Rinpoche” is an honorary title which means “precious one.” The Shambhala teachings, both the secular and the Buddhist variations, emphasize the basic goodness of all beings and teaches the art of courageous warriorship based on wisdom and compassion. As a contemporary teacher, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche uses contemporary music to extend his message.
Do I really have to practice? came the disgruntled voice of a teenager.
How many times have we heard this? I remember when my mother encouraged me to practice my instrument and how I tried to find one excuse after another to get out of it.

But it did not take long until I began to feel the soothing notes of the music and my soul began to relinquish the unruly attitude within me...
I have to admit, when a music therapist re-tweets an article I've shared on Twitter, I get excited. When one of my relatives on the East Coast clicks “Like” on a music therapy related article I've shared on Facebook, I feel a sense of accomplishment.
