Rhodes Scholars are selected not just for their outstanding academic achievements, but also for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead. A Rhodes piano is an electro-mechanical piano that was described by the New York Times in 2001 as having a “shimmering, ethereal sound”. Both of these very different Rhodes are exceptional...
Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Music is an incredible form of art that can serve many purposes. It can be used for relaxation, distraction, expression, or prayer. Music can also be a very powerful meditation, just as washing the dishes or walking can be. Music is just one example of an activity that you can make richer and more satisfying by putting awareness into it.

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Life is sacred. In this brief video, Dr. Hawkins tells us how to live this sacredness consistently. His wisdom is always on point and resonating with truth.

Enjoy!

We have been told time and time again that it is better to give than to receive, but at the same time we are to be in a state of gratitude. So does that mean we are to be grateful only for giving? This is very confusing and usually makes many of us great givers, lousy at receiving, but yet we try to be in a state of gratitude, all at the same time...
A Note from Editor, Sherri Carter: How comfortable are you at saying thank you? What about when someone offers you a compliment? Being able to say thank you is powerful! Remember, if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is ‘thank you’, it will be enough.

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Mastering joy not only means we have truly connected with the Divine but have also invited Life's greatest gifts in to our lives.

When you immerse yourself in a ritual bath, you are participating in an initiation to open yourself up to spirit. Ritual bathing implies that water and prayer washes away any spiritual grime, cleansing and purifying your body and your aura...
