    - Flying Phoenix Qigong from Mt. Ermei, China ~ at Eastover July 27-30

    An intensive Qigong workshop teaching participants the essential core practice of Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi (Fei Feng San Gung), a rare and extraordinarily powerful medical Qigong system created more than 400 years ago by Taoist sage named Feng Teh of Ehrmei Mountain in Xichuan province in western China. Flying Phoenix Qigong is a complete Taoist monastic system of hygienics --comprised of standing and seated, stationary and moving meditations that imparts a wide range of salient health benefits: increased respiratory power, improved circulation and metabolism, well-regulated sleep and resulting higher energy levels, improved neuro-muscular function and balance, strengthened immunity, increased bone strength, and the allostatic reversal of many signs of aging. Besides its splendid health benefits, Flying Phoenix Qigong training so sublimely integrates mind and body to a higher level of structural sensitivity--by bringing all the organ functions under the regulation of the subconscious mind—that it stabilizes full absorption-jhana and trains one-pointedness (samadhi) so that the practitioner’s mind easily rests in the second and third jhanic states. (FP Qigong is also so systemically sensitizing that strict safeguards must be observed as to where and when one practices the art so as to prevent any type of sudden interruption.)

    TERENCE DUNN, Ph.D, is an expert instructor of Chinese martial, yogic, and healing arts with more than 39 years of training based in Los Angeles, CA. Since 1990, he has popularized Tai Chi Chuan, an authentic Qigong practice throughout America and Europe through his highly acclaimed Tai Chi for Health and Chi Kung For Health DVD programs. Terry has also pioneered the practice of Tai Chi and Qigong in modern medicine and professional sports. Educated at Yale College and the Harvard Business School, Terry is a gifted teacher, author and filmmaker who expresses an ecumenical vision in preserving some of the most rare and powerful arts found in China's martial, yogic, and spiritual traditions. Terry Dunn's 39 years of experience in Chinese holistic health practices includes more than 32 years in T'ai Ch'i Ch'uan, Qigong and Chinese methods of meditation, and more than 30 continuous years in three styles of Chinese boxing (kung-fu). He has studied authentic Kung-Fu arts under some of the most renowned Chinese martial art masters of the twentieth century. Dunn is an instructor in the Southern Sil Lum Five Animals Kung Fu, Taoist Elixir Method, and the legendary "Eight Sections of Energy Combined" Kung Fu.

    Terry taught Tai Chi and Chi Kung courses at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for many years, and wrote the first medical protocol in American medical history applying therapeutic Tai Chi and Qigong exercises to accelerate patients' recovery from major surgeries. In 2000 and 2001, Terry became the first Tai Chi trainer in the NBA, training the Los Angeles Lakers during their second championship season, conducting a 50-minute Tai Chi and Kung Fu warm-up and conditioning regimen at the start of every practice. Terry is the creator of the all-time best-selling Tai Chi for Health DVD series (released in 1991) and the six-part Chi Kung For Health series (released in 2003) teaching the remarkable Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong.

    "Because of the great interest in Qigong in the west, it is important to have bona fide teachings by bona fide teachers. Too often students wind up learning a little bit of this form and a little bit of another, while never learning any complete system. This series is a good example of a serious and gifted instructor who offers a complete system of healing qigong to the serious student." -- Solala Towler, Editor, The Empty Vessel -- Journal of Contemporary Taoism

    Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (Kirin Kiki) and beautiful ex-wife (Yoko Make) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (Taiyo Yoshizawa) - until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.

    "The one thing you can count on from Ruthie Foster anytime she steps onto a stage is being blown away by both her powerhouse voice and her familial warmth. ...the Texas singer-songwriter brought the standing room only crowd into her embrace, holding them gently in her grip like a long-lost cousin for almost two hours of song and story." – Atlanta Journal

    In the tight-knit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t. If you do, word gets around. And one day, you find yourself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi. You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row. And those nominations would be in addition to your seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year. She also won the Koko Taylor Award, honoring notable female blues artists, in the Blues Music Awards in 2013 and 2015.

    On March 24, 2017, Ruthie released her new album Joy Comes Back with special guests Derek Trucks, bassist Willie Weeks (Bowie, Clapton, George Harrison) and drumming legend Joe Vitale (Crosby, Stills & Nash; the Eagles). In it are ten incredible tracks, which are by a diverse array of writers ranging from Mississippi John Hurt, Sean Staples and Grace Pettis (daughter of renowned folk singer Pierce Pettis), to Chris Stapleton and Black Sabbath. Yes, Black Sabbath: Foster reimagines “War Pigs” as a jam session with Son House. She also covers the Four Tops’ “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever,” written by Ivy Jo Hunter and Stevie Wonder.

    Her last three releases each received GRAMMY nominations and are critically acclaimed. Ruthie Foster also won the Koko Taylor Award, honoring notable female blues artists, in the Blues Music Awards in 2013 and 2015.

    Adam Ezra Group's songwriting is making waves around the country.

    The co-write, “Let Your Hair Down” with producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta, (American Authors), just received "Song of the Year" at the New England Music Awards. A songwriting partnership with the legendary John Oates is taking Ezra back and forth between Nashville and tour. The theme song, "Grow Your Own Way," was central to Midwest insurance giant, Country Financial's 2014/15 marketing campaign. In addition, Adam Ezra's debut efforts in movie scoring have lead to an appearance at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and the release of Adam Ezra Group's new album, aptly titled, Songs for a Movie.

    The Group is made up of lead singer, songwriter and guitarist, Adam Ezra, Alex Martin on drums, Turtle on percussion, Corinna Smith on fiddle, Francis Hickey on bass and Josh Gold on keys. Together they are creating a powerful, inclusive community around AEG shows that is beginning to be compared to a social-movement as much as a traditional music fan-base. It's this dedication to fans that inspired the 2016 "Get Folked Concert Tour" in which Ezra ventured solo/acoustic to the homes of 30 fans in as many days and almost as many states to play house concerts throughout the entire month of January.
