There is growing international interest in the potential of the cultural and creative industries to drive sustainable development and create inclusive job opportunities. An indication of this is a recent set of UNESCO guidelines on how to measure and compile statistics about the economic contribution of the cultural industries. But should this be the only reason for funding arts and culture? Cultural industries can be defined as those whose major outputs have some symbolic value – such as fine arts, film and craft – but also possibly including jewellery design, publishing and fashion.

Creative industries are defined more broadly. UNESCO has provided guidelines on ways in which these industries can be classified. Cultural Times, the first global map of the cultural and creative industries, which was recently released, acknowledges the societal value of arts and culture. This survey quantifies the global economic and social contribution of the sector. These findings echo worldwide trends. The Decline of Play and Rise in Children's Mental Disorders.

Mind Magic: Using the Law Of Attraction to Make Sex Sizzle. Do you know The Secret? Oprah claims she does–and so do millions of others around the world who are fascinated with the “Law of Attraction.”

So what could be a better time than right now–the eve of 2013–to take a long look at how this knowledge can enliven life, love, and sexuality in the New Year. In her bestselling book “The Secret,” author Ronda Byrne draws upon expert anecdotes and borrowed bits of quantum theory to suggest that the Law of Attraction (let’s call it LoA for short) enables us to have everything we want in life if we understand its rules. I’m not sure the Law is quite as magically encompassing as Byrne implies, but I do trust that you can bring greater zest and promise to your love life by taking its wisdom to heart. My Own Surprising Dream I’d like to introduce you to the LoA as I first encountered it, by telling you about a powerful dream I had many years ago, long before the LoA was even a blip on the screen of popular culture.

Power Of Drawing State From WIthin And Being Carefree. Singing as a Spiritual Path | Somatic Voicework Teachers Association | Vocal Pedagogy for All Musical Styles. Singing can be a path to spiritual growth. This takes the concept of spirituality in its broadest context. The human spirit lives through the characteristics of one’s life. Honesty, loyalty, truthfulness, courage, dedication, perseverance, patience, compassion, responsibility, humility…..these are qualities that reflect the highest and best attributes of humanity. The artistic path will put you in touch with these aspects of yourself (and their reflected negatives) if you are someone who strives to achieve the highest and best goals that are possible.

Art, just as sports, can be daunting. Even those who succeed in doing what they love creatively have issues to face. Yes, other people who are not artists have to face these questions, too, but it seems to me easier to hide from them if you are distracted by your office job. Training which embraces the path of singing as a spiritual discipline facilitates a singer’s compassionate and courageous confrontation with him or herself.

"All great things must first wear a terrifying and monsterous mask, in order to inscribe themselves on the hearts of humanity. " -- Fredrick Nietzsche The words "Chaos Magic" reverberate with mystery and intrigue. It's rather safe to assume that this was intentional on the part of those who originally coined the term.

Of course, when Gerald Gardener came up with his reconstruction of European Paganism in the 1950's and called it "witchcraft," he must have been equally well aware of the effect that that term would have on his contemporaries. There's nothing like a touch of the "forbidden" if you want to intrigue people. The label of "Chaos Magic" suffers from two inherent drawbacks. The second (and more important) drawback is that the very idea of Chaos Magic inherently defies description. No Holds Barred Magic Chaos Magic is dangerous, awesome, full of potential and therefore highly compelling. So why is it called Chaos Magic? But what makes it Chaos Magic? Relativity.

Elaine H. Pagels: The Harrington Spear Paine Foundation Professor of Religion Princeton University Gnostic texts of nag hammadi The discovery at Nag Hammadi began with an Arab villager whose name was Mohammed Ali going with his brothers on an ordinary errand. They saddled up their camels and they rode out from their village, a small town in the barren stretches of upper Egypt. There were 52 texts altogether, apparently, unless some of them were burned that we don't know about. For more on the gnostic texts discovered at Nag Hammadi, read this excerpt from Elaine Pagels' The Gnostic Gospels.

The term gnosticism is often used as a sort of umbrella term to cover the people that the leaders of the church don't like. How does one demonstrate that one has acquired a secret knowledge? Did the gnostics see themselves as being outside? Harold W. Power Breathing. By Morra Talion (MT) from Zelator Website Lesson One [First published in TNTC Vol. 1, No. 1 July '89] The Charger Breath Here are your first instructions, your key Lesson in the Power Breathing technique. This first exercise is called the Charger Breath. Become very familiar with it, use it often every day, for it is the foundation of the system. 1. Remember that the Charger Breath should be practiced sitting down at least the first couple days; one of the effects you may feel when first practicing the Breath is a kind of light-headed or giddy feeling.

Consistent practice of the Charger Breath will acclimate your system to a more positive and invigorating ratio of oxygen to carbon dioxide in the bloodstream and tissues, and the threshold of hyperventilation will quickly be pushed back. After a few weeks of regular practice you may well be able to do high numbers of series-repetitions using a big seven-group of breaths without experiencing any effects of hyperventilation at all. Lesson Two 1. GE Neuro Gameplay on Oculus Rift. Sam Harris: The Self is an Illusion. Transcript Sam Harris: What one of the problems we have in discussing consciousness scientifically is that consciousness is irreducibly subjective. This is a point that many philosophers have made – Thomas Nagel, John Sorrell, David Chalmers. While I don’t agree with everything they’ve said about consciousness I agree with them on this point that consciousness is what it’s like to be you. If there’s an experiential internal qualitative dimension to any physical system then that is consciousness.

And we can’t reduce the experiential side to talk of information processing and neurotransmitters and states of the brain in our case because – and people want to do this. And to give you a more precise example, we have very strong third person “objective measures” of things like anxiety and fear at this moment. I’m not arguing that consciousness is a reality beyond science or beyond the brain or that it floats free of the brain at death. It’s clearly an experience that people can have.

The lesson you never got taught in school: How to learn! A paper published in Psychological Science in the Public Interest evaluated ten techniques for improving learning, ranging from mnemonics to highlighting and came to some surprising conclusions. The report is quite a heavy document so I’ve summarised the techniques below based on the conclusions of the report regarding effectiveness of each technique. Be aware that everyone thinks they have their own style of learning (they don't, according to the latest research), and the evidence suggests that just because a technique works or does not work for other people does not necessarily mean it will or won’t work well for you.

If you want to know how to revise or learn most effectively you will still want to experiment on yourself a little with each technique before writing any of them off. Elaborative Interrogation (Rating = moderate) A method involving creating explanations for why stated facts are true. An example of elaborative interrogation for the above paragraph could be: Reference: 12 Chord Progression Characteristics that Music History Teaches Us | The Essential Secrets of Songwriting. All chord progressions, regardless of genre, work pretty much the same way. Here are 12 features of progressions common to all music. Thousands of songwriters are now using “The Essential Secrets of Songwriting” 6-eBook Bundle to improve their technique. It comes with a 7th free eBook, “From Amateur to Ace: Writing Songs Like a Pro“. Read more.. If pop music is your only area of interest, you might be forgiven for thinking that the way chord progressions work is the result of pop music history.

What follows is a list of 12 tips — you might say characteristics — for creating and using chord progressions. A strong progression is one that points to one particular chord as being the tonic chord – a kind of “home base.” Because the way we use chords is essentially identical to the way famous composers (Bach, Mozart, Brahms, etc.) used progressions, it can be interesting to take the chords from a favourite classical tune and write a new melody over them. The Wim Hof Method *Revealed* - How to Consciously Control Your Immune System. We previously published an article about Wim Hof, holder of 20 Guinness World Records for withstanding extreme temperatures. He has climbed Everest and Kilimanjaro in only shorts and shoes, stayed comfortably in ice baths for hours, and run a full marathon in the highest desert (50 degrees celsius, 122 Fahrenheit) with no water & food.

Wim is able to accomplish these feats with ease through the use of ‘The Wim Hof Method‘ — a breathing technique that allows you to control the autonomous systems of the body. However the most earthshaking effect of the Wim Hof Method is the ability to consciously control the immune system to fight off diseases. Our immune system plays a significant role in almost all devastating diseases plaguing the modern world, and finding a way to improve it can help us discover new avenues for medicine. Wim is currently working with a group of university researchers to prove that anyone can do the extraordinary things he does. Update: Study is now out. The Method. The 7 Biggest Mistakes People Make When Learning Magick.

8 Things Everybody Ought to Know About Concentrating. “Music helps me concentrate,” Mike said to me glancing briefly over his shoulder. Mike was in his room writing a paper for his U.S. History class. On his desk next to his computer sat crunched Red Bulls, empty Gatorade bottles, some extra pocket change and scattered pieces of paper. In the pocket of his sweat pants rested a blaring iPod with a chord that dangled near the floor, almost touching against his Adidas sandals. On his computer sat even more stray objects than his surrounding environment. Mike made a shift about every thirty seconds between all of the above. Do you know a person like this? The Science Behind Concentration In the above account, Mike’s obviously stuck in a routine that many of us may have found ourselves in, yet in the moment we feel it’s almost an impossible routine to get out of.

When we constantly multitask to get things done, we’re not multitasking, we’re rapidly shifting our attention. Phase 1: Blood Rush Alert Phase 2: Find and Execute Phase 3: Disengagement. Kudoclasm: When Lifelong Dreams Are Brought Down to Earth. MY NEW FAVORITE WAY TO READ. How to Change Your Life: An Epic, 5,000-Word Guide to Getting What You Want. Everybody talks about it. Nobody does it. If I’ve learned anything by my age, it’s that most of the world, myself included, is composed of talkers, not doers.

There are very few exceptions to this rule. The good news is, you can be a doer if you want. The ability to act is not something you’re born with. I’ve changed myself a lot, but it’s not because I’m special. Now, most posts of this nature will give you little tips, maybe even 100 tips, in the hope that you’ll be impressed by how large the list is and just tweet the hell out of it. So I’ve decided to make this post ridiculously long instead. By the way, I’m also going to say that I’m not going to be writing about this stuff for much longer. I’m starting to figure out that the way your time should be spent is largely like a pyramid, with a wide base of learning, with a smaller level of acting on top of it, which is directed by the learning, and then on top of that, an even smaller level of writing about it. 1.

" Hi! It is nice to meet you. As an archeologist, I have had the great fortune to work in some pretty amazing places, from the English Heritage, Eartham Pit dig in West Sussex where Homo heidelbergensis was discovered, to the Botai dig in Kazakhstan for the Carnegie Mellon Museum of Natural History, where I was told to cover up the discovery of artifacts made of bone which bore a striking resemblance to screw drivers, which would be astonishing for the time period - to the Chatan-cho dig Okinawa where we were ordered to conceal our discoveries by the Japanese government since they didn't like that we found Koreans rather than Japanese. I left archeology when the sanctity of scientific data was was repeatedly sacrificed for political expedience.

The Capsule of Intentionality Take a small box, jar, case, metal capsule, etc. — a small, aesthetically pleasing and well made container of some sort, and put a document of thoughtfully written worthy intentions in it.

I call this a "Capsule of Intentionality. " Alternatively, you can have a journal book for this purpose only, a book that should also be well made and aesthetically just right. Write things in these sacred linguistic/intentionality containing spaces only when you are in the place of your deepest self — a calm, compassionate spacious place. Then, as you go through life, aim to follow whatever you set up in your Capsule of Intentionality. It may be practical to write in your sacred document that a digital version of it on your smart phone is also valid. There are many possible variations. II. Chaos Magic Practice | The Icarus Project. The Gnostic World View: A Brief Summary of Gnosticism. Gnosis Archive | Library | Bookstore | Index | Web Lectures | Ecclesia Gnostica | Gnostic Society GNOSTICISM IS THE TEACHING based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means.

Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth. Indeed, one finds that most Gnostic scriptures take the forms of myths.

The term “myth” should not here be taken to mean “stories that are not true”, but rather, that the truths embodied in these myths are of a different order from the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy.
