CDT094 Mask: Place to Meet Your Essence

Also touched on: the importance of whiteface; exploring the space between the mask and the face; the tradition of wearing a mask once a year in most cultures (Halloween, Mardi Gras, etc.). Some participants describe their experience of encountering Essence through mask work. Samuel Avital discusses the characteristics of a mature artist, and performance as a sacred act.

CDT157 Creation Story Verbatim - Studio recording
This is a studio recording of the classic play on Creation featuring the Lord God Herself and her trusty sidekick, the Archangel Gabriel. It's read by Grace Kelly Rivera and Robbert Trice who have been working with and perfecting these roles for over a dozen years.
Music and various sound effects have been added to accentuate the drama. They also help to convey the special mood of this classic on voluntary evolution. The result is a compelling soundscape which supports this eternal dialogue and divine comedy.
It has been said that all conversations can be heard in this conversation.

The legend of Gilgamesh is the most ancient recorded tale of a hero's journey.

Dr. Naranjo tells the story with a commentary on its psychological and spiritual implications.
Every year Christmas rolls around, like it or not. What do you do? You meet with friends and family, and notice there's just some folks that Seem to Have Everything. Still, Christmas is for them, too, you think, and sure enough every year you find yourself wandering around looking for something in your price range for Those Who Already Have It All, but would probably like more. (I heard recently of a company, perhaps related to the God-World-in-My-Pocket developers, who've gone ahead and put the Entire Known Universe up for sale... After that gets bought, I guess they'll put up some of the Unknown and Lesser Known Universes, and before long Christmas shopping will be worse than ever...)
However, even Those Who Have It All don't often have a God-World-in-My-Pocket, not even the Gods, who you'd think would've wised up by now, rather than walking around with empty pockets.
Luckily, in this fast paced talk, E.J. Gold solves the problem. Listen and learn as he presents ideas about marketing this unique product--which I recommend everyone buy TODAY from SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE--like from Cloister Recordings, whom I know has some sitting around here and there that've been collecting special etheric particles from the Etherical Particles Division of their corporation, just in case they run into one of those Recording Angels in charge of seasonal gift giving for various recording label gods and executives.
Once you've seen one of these Pocket Worlds for yourself, you'll sigh with relief at their delightful simplicity, and may want to try selling a few yourself, if not for profit, then perhaps in the Spirit of helping some of the wandering Gods out there find a way home for the holidays...
