    Topanga and Michael Franti

    Experiencing Michael Franti live is always a very spiritual ritual. Sometimes I get emotional, but it never fails — I always walk away from a Michael Franti show wanting to be a better person. If you have never seen him live I highly recommend it. His shows are probably the best live shows I have ever attended.

    I recently had the oppurtunity of meeting and interviewing Michael, and wow — how powerful! His soul shines even brighter up close. This meeting took place at the Life is Good Festival in Canton, Mass. I decided beforehand to suggest that my 8-year-old daughter, Topanga, conduct the interview. I know his love of children, so I knew he would connect with her.

    When you watch the video, notice first of all how he comforts a nervous child just with his presence and also see how he takes the opportunity with each and every word he utters to inspire this little girl to take note of the good things in life. Reminding her that eating healthy stuff is cool, doing what you love to do in life is the way to go, spending time with family is good, and that learning about less fortunate kids is important.

    Tantric Love

    A healthy love life is just as important as eating healthy and exercising! Did you know there is a study saying sexual energy is the most powerful energy on the planet!

    I recently found two great articles on the subject of Tantra over at Mind Body Green. Below are some exerts.

    The ascent to orgasm releases dopamine: the cocaine high. This motivates you to achieve in the world and induces feelings of strength and confidence. We are flooded with oxytocin at orgasm, which helps you to feel more sociable and strengthens not only your bond with your partner, but opens you to forging deeper relationships with the other people in your life. Plus, oxytocin reduces cortisol, the major stress hormone.

    Moving and channeling sexual energy enables you to clear blockages where your energy has been stagnant, possibly causing dysfunction and disease. Once you’ve cleared those, you have that energy available to revitalize organs, meridians and your brain.
