All of us are part of a special frequency flyer club, and there are no membership requirements except to be alive and part of the universe. We are energy, we are all connected, and we influence each other with our chosen frequency flavor of the moment: be it mood or repeating thoughts or just the environment that is creating an energetic momentum around us, like a pebble in a pond.Read More
We had so many wonderful happenings blossom in our world on this Be Hear Now tour, epic awesomeness that would take up more words than would be kind to the modern attention span. Instead, we want to highlight where the real magic happened: in the friction.Read More
Today, your daily dose of sound medicine is a poem. Read it quietly or aloud and let the lyricism find its resonance in you.
A Finger, Two Dots, Then Me
by Derrick Brown
Lying together in the park on Seventh,
our backs smoosh grass and I say

when feeding me and bathing me is no longer romantic,

What has felt to us as an exponential leap in just three years, has really been in the making for decades. Here is a high level glimpse into the magic and flow of our story. Enjoy. We do. Every day.
Illuminating Hearts emerged out of the unlikely equation of a poison ivy break out, a didgeridoo, and some oracle cards...Read More
Fall Equinox is tomorrow September 22, 2017 at 3:02 pm Central Daylight Time. On the eve of this seasonal change, learn from the wisdom of the trees and their great anticipated tossing off the old for composting and renewal. In our yard it has already begun, leaves falling here and there as the wind helps out. I also love the wisdom in Dar Williams lyric in the song The Beauty of the Rain: "the beauty of the rain is how it falls, how it falls, how it falls."

It’s nearly impossible to imagine our world without music. The sounds, notes, rhythms and melodies are fully intertwined with our lives. A single song, or perhaps even just the chorus, can conjure up deep feelings and memories of events, experiences, people or places - positive and negative.

We at illuminating hearts send our love and condolences to all those who suffered directly in the recent global events in Charlottesville and Barcelona, and any others currently suffering, big or small, from hate crimes and acts of bias that might not be making headlines. Gran amor y un gran abrazo a todos. Big love and a big hug to all.
We usually refrain from political posts, but recent events and intense energies indicate that it is time to harness our mission and presence of living from heart-based intelligence to en-COURAGE community connection, action, and speaking out from the heart...Read More
