To purchase Spiritual Music of Azerbaijan and to learn more about Mugham: Spiritual Music of Azerbaijan, please visit... http://www.folkways.si.edu/albumdetails.aspx?itemid=3186 Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, is producing a 10-CD set documenting the musics of Central Asia. Smithsonian Folkways Recordings will release ten volumes of its new Music of Central Asia series from 2006-2009. This ground-breaking, newly recorded series presents authentic musical traditions of Central Asia as they are performed today, featuring some of the region's most outstanding artists. From the nomadic and bardic cultures of the steppes to the classical court traditions of the cities, this series celebrates musicians who display a mastery of older traditions and also embody a contemporary spirit of innovation. Produced in conjunction with the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, each release includes an extensive color booklet and comes with a vivid bonus DVD containing a series introduction, 24-minute film, interactive glossary and map. Mugham, the indigenous classical music of Azerbaijan, belongs to a transnational tradition of urban classical or court music that flourished in the great cultural centers of North Africa, the Middle East, West Asia, and Central Asia beginning more than a millennium ago. Mugham and its cognate repertoires are all regionally specific but represent what is at root a common musical language.

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2009/10/22/Deepak_Chopra_How_to_Create_a_New_Self Author and spiritual guru Deepak Chopra remembers his first spiritual experience with LSD at 17, and discusses various cultural uses of hallucinogenic drugs to achieve enlightenment. He touches on ritualistic drug use in Native American, Aborigine, and Indian religious traditions. ----- "You can't change the body without changing the self, and you can't change the self without bringing in the soul," says Deepak Chopra, a renowned pioneer in holistic medicine. Chopra believes the highest choice is to reinvent your body and resurrect your soul. He discusses aging, the many lifestyle diseases he says are the result of the steady loss of energy inside the body, and how awareness can reverse the process. From early childhood, each of us has been inventing our body, through beliefs, habits, conditioning, and our mental responses to everyday stress. We've done this unconsciously, and may now feel dissatisfaction on all levels: body, mind and spirit. Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul offers three keys to creating the self you desire: the soul shift, the subtle action, and the core participation. Chopra's message is that your highest vision of yourself can be turned into physical reality. - Commonwealth Club of California Deepak Chopra is the author of more than fifty books translated into more than thirty-five languages. Dr. Chopra is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, adjunct professor at the Kellogg School of Management, and a senior scientist with the Gallup Organization. He is founder and president of the Alliance for a New Humanity. Time magazine heralds Deepak Chopra as one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century and credits him as "the poetprophet of alternative medicine."

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/fora/showthread.php?t=940 A panel of religious experts debates the question of whether or not "spiritual values" can be said to be held by individuals who to not profess a belief in God. This excerpt is taken from a program titled "Religion in U.S. Culture and Society," and was hosted by the Commonwealth Club of California. ----- Many studies show that Americans are more religious than people in other Western countries, but battles still rage in the United States over the role of religion in everyday public life. This panel of religious thinkers comment on the role of faith in transcending individualism and selfishness in a commercial society, on addressing the variety of faiths in our spiritually diverse society, and on religion's role in education. -- The Commonwealth Club Michael Maudlin is Editorial Director at Harper One San Francisco. Stephen Prothero is the Chair of the Department of Religion at Boston University and the author of numerous books, most recently Religious Literacy: What Americans Need to Know (HarperSanFrancisco, 2007) and American Jesus: How the Son of God Became a National Icon (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2003). Rabbi Michael Lerner is a political activist and the editor of Tikkun, a prominent progressive Jewish and interfaith magazine based in Berkeley, California.
