Paradigm Shift Reflects Essential Turning Point in the Conscious Evolution of Mankind on Planet Earth

Prolific Author-Philosopher Notes that the Way Forward Embraces the Abundant Synergy of Man and Woman Balance.

Las Vegas, NV, USA — In his new treatise, author and philosopher Christopher Alan Anderson offers an educational writing that points to a different direction for our collective lives. In these turbulent times, with mankind and Planet Earth at a turning point, he asks, “What is the actual foundation we can base life upon?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! answers this question, presenting a paradigm shift into Man and Woman Balance, a system of understanding the universe in terms of the fundamental polarities of maleness and femaleness and the balance thereof.

In religious terms, Anderson clarifies, we might say, “If there is a ‘God the Father’ there must also be a ‘God the Mother,’ not a ‘God the Mother’ as a secondary existence to ‘God the Father’ but as an equal and opposite primary existence to ‘God the Father.'” In philosophical terms, “Only [sexual] opposites can unite to then again divide…creating the spiritual lineage of [procreant] love.” This essential balanced interdependence offers a rich and life-enhancing reality all human beings can live by.

In an era in which it is clear our past and current religious and political structures have failed us, Anderson notes that many are confused about which way to turn. He comments, “We are being offered a sexual progressivism through L, G, B, T, Q as well as an existential threat in Islamic radicalism. In the meantime, our own constitutional system of governance and Christian roots seem to comprise a history, so what is the way forward? How are we to move ahead without a foundation based on life itself?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! asserts that life is the only state of existence between male and female and that love is its one expression. The author further suggests that their every moment/touch is a spiritual resurrection/rebirth. In other words, procreation is not just physical in nature but spiritual as well. With this understanding, concludes Anderson, we may truly “love ye one another.”

He explains, “Love is a good place from which to begin the life endeavor, as Man and Woman Balance can only be an expression of love.” In short, “Man and woman can only love each other, now and forever,” so might not this living reality, both on an individual basis and within the world at large, be the actual foundation from which we can live together?

Anderson cautions, “This is not an easy book, but if you can capture and live its essence, your life will forevermore have purpose.”

About the Author: Christopher Alan Anderson received the basis of his education from the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia. He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman can together stand in their differences and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. When asked to describe their overall message, he responded, “Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now.”

God’s Eternal Purpose Volume Two: The Identity of the Sons of God: The Image of Jesus Christ

In the newest book from prolific author Clement Butler, he helps the reader learn, through Scripture, the identity of the sons of God, and God’s purpose for our life.

Nassau, Bahamas, October 20th, 2017 — As you look into the face of your fellow man/woman, do you see the image of Christ? In the newest book from prolific author Clement Butler, he helps the reader learn, through Scripture, the identity of the sons of God, and God’s purpose for our life.

“What is the hope of our calling?” asks author Clement Butler. “The Father has already determined our destiny. He wants us to be just like Him. So how do we achieve that life? It involves a journey of transformation and moving from glory to glory. God’s eternal purpose includes not just the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth, but also the development of sons (daughters) who are inheritors of the Kingdom.”

In this, the fourth book in Butler’s “Teacher Series,” he uses Scripture to help us understand God’s purpose through us. It is a high calling, to be a disciple of Christ, which is an extension of The Father, and in this volume, The Image of Jesus Christ, Butler helps readers understand the transformation that must take place in order to develop/mature as sons of God.

This is a companion text to the first book “God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom” which should be read first to truly grasp the full value of Butler’s message. Butler believes that readers must first understand God’s Purpose before we can understand our role in that overall vision. Butler references Romans 8:29 as a primary text for the foundation of his latest book:

Romans 8:29-30
29-30 God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun. (The Message (MSG))

“Readers can take comfort in God’s assurance that He has a purpose and that He requires our heart to fulfil that purpose,” said Butler. “It is a process that involves chastisement, mortification, life beyond the veil, and entering into His rest. It is, therefore, the purpose of this book to detail the journey to this destination, the journey to the image of Christ.”

Proverbs 3:6 reminds us; “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (NKJV) and in his newest book Butler provides instruction to assist us on our journey as we strive to conform to His image and move from glory to glory.

Butler is also the author of recently released “God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom” which is the third in author Clement Butler’s Teacher Series and Volume One in a two-part examination of the creation, foundation and understanding of God’s Kingdom. In this book Butler focuses on what God’s purpose is for humanity and the establishment of His Kingdom. “God’s Eternal Purpose” is available at Amazon.

God’s Eternal Purpose Volume Two: The Identity of the Sons of God: The Image of Jesus Christ is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in hard cover for $29.95 and $9.95 for the e-book.

New Children’s Singalong Album ‘Let’s Sing!’ From Bay Area Folk Singer and Her Group Now Available in Time for the Holidays

Kathy Sherman has been a professional folk musician for 44 years and a music teacher for nine. She performs in three different folk bands and has released five recordings.

Los Altos, CA, October 21, 2017 — Kathy Sherman has been a professional folk musician for 44 years and a music teacher for nine. She performs in three different folk bands and has released five recordings. So for her sixth album, she drew on all her experiences as a musician and teacher.

“I teach pre-school music and these are songs I do with my students,” says Sherman about her sixth and latest release, a children’s singalong album “Let’s Sing!” recorded with her group the Good Folk Collective. “And they just happen to be some of my favorites.”

The 18-song “Let’s Sing!” available at amazon.com and store.cdbaby.com, features such all-time favorite sing-alongs such as “The Hokey Pokey,” “She’ll Be Comin’ ’Round the Mountain,” “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” “How Much is That Doggie in the Window,” and “Teddy Bear’s Picnic.”

But it also includes some lesser-known gems such as the silly “echo” songs,“I Am a Pizza,” and “I Am the Conductor”, “The State Laughs,” which follows​ ​a​ ​joke​ ​and​ ​the​ ​response​ ​it​ ​gets​ ​in​ ​different​ ​states​ ​of the​ ​country (in Tennessee, they say hee, hee hee), and “Jenny​ Jenkins,” an​ ​old​ ​musical​ ​game​ ​where​ ​one​ ​singer​ ​suggests​ ​a​ ​color​ ​and​ ​another​ ​singer must​ ​come​ ​up​ ​with​ ​a​ ​rhyming​ ​word.​

“Kids and parents love these songs. Not only are they fun to sing, they all have a physical component too, clapping, stomping, playing percussion, helping children make important neural connections and giving parents a chance to get some exercise, as well!” says Sherman, “and you’ve gotta have some elements of humor, otherwise it’s not fun.”

The album also has an accompanying “Let’s Sing!” songbook, which includes all of the songs on “Let’s Sing!,” as well as selected songs from her group Hey Mom!’s “Listen to Your Mama” and “Singing on a Star.” Sherman has included simple chords in the same key as on the albums so even beginning musicians can play along on guitar, ukulele, autoharp or piano.

The Let’s Sing! Songbook is available at magcloud.com, both the CD and songbook can also be purchased at GoodFolkSongs.com. The album and songbook will make for excellent holiday gifts for children and parents alike.

“What I’m trying to do is create a musical community,” says Sherman, who wants to preserve some of the great folk songs and traditions for the next generation. “These songs are brand-new to many people, especially if you weren’t born and raised in the U.S. A lot of people have been trying to define folk music. To me it’s community music. It’s songs that everybody knows and everybody can sing, music that has worked it’s way into our DNA.”

In addition to the Good Folk Collective and Hey Mom!, Sherman is also member of the Greek folk duo The Plaka Band. She has recorded and released six albums with the three groups.

Kathy teaches 17 pre-school music classes a week to approximately 300​ ​children​ ​and​ ​parents, with​ ​students​ ​ranging​ ​in​ ​age​ ​from​ ​2​ ​½​ ​​ ​to​ ​5​ ​½ years.​ ​She​ ​also lectures​ ​parents’​ ​groups​ ​on​ ​pre-intellectual​ ​music​ ​education​ ​and​ ​creating​ ​a​ ​more​ ​musical​ ​home environment.

About Kathy Sherman

Kathy Sherman started ​her​ ​professional​ ​music​ ​career​ ​at​ ​age​ ​15,​ ​playing​ ​Greek​ ​music​ ​in​ ​clubs, restaurants,​ ​festivals​, and​ ​concerts.​ ​She​ ​put​ ​down​ ​her​ ​bouzouki, the mandolin-like instrument central to modern Greek music,​ ​long​ ​enough​ ​to​ ​earn​ ​a​ ​BMus​ ​in classical​ ​guitar​ ​performance​ ​from​ ​the​ ​San​ ​Francisco​ ​Conservatory​ ​of​ Music.​ ​She​ ​was​ ​a​ ​member of​ ​the​ ​Electric​ ​Guitar​ ​Quartet,​ ​a​ ​classical​ ​/​ ​comedy​ ​group​ ​that​ ​opened​ ​for​ ​such​ ​guitar​ ​luminaries as​ ​Leo​ ​Kottke,​ ​Jorma​ ​Kaukonen,​ ​John​ ​Hartford,​ ​The​ ​Great​ Guitars​ ​(Barney​ ​Kessel,​ ​Charlie​ ​Byrd, and​ ​Herb​ ​Ellis)​ ​and​ ​Free​ ​Flight.

Kathy’s current music experiences include Greek folk music with long-time friend and fellow musician, Notis Contoplianos in their group, The Plaka Band. Notis and Kathy have two extraordinary CDs, New Songs of Old Athens (selected for Grammy consideration for best World Music Album), and A Time to Sing, A Time to Dance, a rollicking collection of favorite Greek dance music. For more information about The Plaka Band, please check out their website, ThePlakaBand.com. Kathy also plays classical mandolin for orchestras who have the occasional need for one.

On special occasions, several musician friends get together to perform. One such group is The Burns Supper Club, where we get together on or around January 25th of each year to provide Celtic music for the celebration of the life and works of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796). According to RobertBurns.org, “Burns Suppers range from stentoriously formal gatherings of esthetes and scholars to uproariously informal rave-ups of drunkards and louts.” Our celebration falls somewhere in between.

Teach Children a Love of Nature with “Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon,” A New Children’s Story

In O’Dell’s children’s story Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, we are invited to take our children by the hand and share in its wonders.

Galena, OH (USA), October 16th, 2017 — We only have one earth; one planet that sustains us and provides water, shade and an abundance of beauty. In O’Dell’s children’s story Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, we are invited to take our children by the hand and share in its wonders.

“My wife and I have long held a love of nature and I wanted to create a book for my children that expressed that wonder and delight in the environment,” said first time children’s author Kevin M. O’Dell. “Writing this story was a true labor of love and a wonderful opportunity to include my sister as she is the illustrator of the story.”

Illustrator, Megan Philips and the author spent many wonderful vacations hiking, fishing and camping with their father and together they have created a beautiful tribute to their father who first introduced them to the wonders of Mother Earth.

In the story, father and son explore the outdoors, the plants, trees and wildlife that live among the woods. While sharing their adventure, the father has the opportunity to teach his son about the importance of nature and how to care for our environment.

“My hope is to pass along the love of nature my father instilled in our family, to my children and to those that read the book,” said O’Dell. “This book is meant to be enjoyed and shared.”

The author lives in the country and is raising his children to enjoy nature walks, camping, fishing and basically anything that gets them out into nature.

There is a lesson that can be learned by studying the balance of nature. O’Dell helps readers see how animals, plants and the sun cooperate and work together. We can learn a lot about how to live and be with each other by studying the harmony found in nature. Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon will help parents inspire their families to do their own exploring.

“Children today spend more time on their smart devices than playing outside,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “This delightful story will encourage parents and their children to do their own exploring of nature and hopefully find ways to sustain and care for our environment.”

Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in paperback for $12.95 and $7.99 for the e-book.

About John Lewis

John Lewis found his calling as a college student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, though it wasn’t how you might expect a career path to unfold. Flash forward to 2017, as Lewis is now the founder of Lewis Builders, which specializes in designing and building custom homes, doing design/build remodels and “aging-in-place” renovations for retirees, older people and those with health concerns. His firm employs 15 people and moved into new offices in The Barnyard Shopping Center in Carmel.

“We have a passion for helping those who are aging and just want to keep their dignity and independence in their own homes,” says Lewis. “We’re trying to educate the public on design/build and aging-in-place.”

Design/build, simply put, is the same company doing the design and construction, from conception to completion, of a custom home or remodel. Design/builders have a better conception of the real costs of a project and how to fit that into a client’s budget; it saves significant time in the overall project; and the construction team works collaboratively with the design team.

Aging-in-place is customizing homes with innovative, aesthetically pleasing solutions that alleviate the physical challenges of aging or injury.

It’s not just a specialty, Lewis Builders is a credentialed expert in CAPS (Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist). A program of the National Association of Home Builders, the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program teaches the technical, business management, and customer service skills essential to competing in the fastest growing segment of the residential remodeling industry: home modifications for the aging-in-place.

“When people discover that cost of living in an assisted-living facility can be $10,000 or $20,000 a month, making modifications to their own homes becomes a no-brainer,” he says. “The ultimate result is that people are able to live comfortably and safely in their homes into their later years, rather than moving into costly assisted-living facilities.”

Born and raised in Monterey County, the youngest of five children, Lewis’s passion for the creative process of designing and building custom homes and remodels that started with small repair jobs in college, has now become his life’s work.

Singer-Songwriter and Pianist, Shauna Burns, Announces New Release: “Scarborough Fair,” Coming 10/6/17!

Shauna Burns, the seasoned Celtic inspired artist, is known for enchanting listeners with her soothing vocals, sweeping piano solos, and spiritually healing music.

Salt Lake City, UT, Sep 29, 2017 – Shauna Burns, the seasoned Celtic inspired artist, is known for enchanting listeners with her soothing vocals, sweeping piano solos, and spiritually healing music. The singer-songwriter and pianist is set to release her cover single of an old-time classic, “Scarborough Fair,” on October 6, 2017 through the label Red Rock Music.

Shauna Burns rejuvenates “Scarborough Fair” with her own Celtic spin to this English traditional ballad. Singing the female’s reply to the male’s request to prove true love, Shauna brings her own perspective to this classic tale. Her intricate yet, delicate piano melodies whisk through the entire piece. Shauna’s crystalline and haunting vocal performance is laced between engaging threads and a Celtic harp that broaden the dreamy effect of the song.

“I had been spending a lot of time in green lush places lately and I started to imagine the woman in this song walking through the landscape, says Shauna Burns. I heard her voice so clearly and I went to the piano and started to tinker out the first bit of the song.”

“Scarborough Fair” highlights the tale of a young man who instructs the listener to tell his past lover to complete a series of impossible tasks, in order for him to take her back. Typically the song is performed as a duet, with the women ordering the man to perform equally impossible tasks, as well. In the brand new version, Shauna sings “ask him to find me an acre of land, between the salt water and the sea-sand.”

Shauna continues, “I imagine this couple is probably having a bump in their relationship and are trying to get each other to do the impossible task to win back their love… but I sensed at the end both of them want to forgive, want to move forward, but perhaps their pride is in the way? I felt when I was recording “Scarborough Fair” that ‘her’ soft vocals maybe gave the game away… maybe just a touch. I personally think true love prevails at the end.”

The piano, keyboard, vocals and musical arrangements were done by Shauna Burns. Caroline Kemper ReidReynoso performed on the Celtic harp, and Dee Kei Waddell on the double bass and keyboard. The song was produced by Shauna Burns and James Clark, and was engineered/mastered/co-produced by Dee Kei Waddell.

About Shauna Burns:

Burns had developed her captivating vocal and playing style while growing up in Miami, Florida where she was inspired by her mother’s love for the piano and groundbreaking pop/rock artists like Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos. After releasing four studio albums and countless singles, Burns has hit FMQB AC Charts, was one of WCH Radio’s “Top Songs of the Year” and hit #1 on “Song Vault Radio.” The Moon and the Fire Circle album was selected as “Best of 2008” by Collected Sounds and The Promise Live. Shauna Burns continues to capture audiences across the globe with her heartwarming music. Her profound lyrics and piano driven sound has built her reputation in the Celtic music world and has also allowed her to tour extensively through the U.S. and U.K. For more information please visit: http://shaunaburns.com/music/

Ashley J Announces her New Empowering and Energetic Pop Single, “Unbreakable,” Releasing 10/6/17!

On October 6, 2017 Ashley J will return with her new follow-up pop single “Unbreakable,” the second single from Ashley’s forthcoming EP, slated for an early 2018 release.

Orlando, FL, September 25, 2017 – On October 6, 2017 Ashley J will return with her new follow-up pop single “Unbreakable,” the second single from Ashley’s forthcoming EP, slated for an early 2018 release. “Trapped,” her first single and video received tremendous media praise and hit #6 on the European Independent Music Charts. “Unbreakable” will be released via her own imprint Bombshell Music, Inc.

The Orlando based songwriter/singer showcases her independent and liberating lyrical style in her new song, “Unbreakable.” She collaborated with UK’s established producers, Jamie Sellers and Warwick Matthews to produce this buoyant new track. Ashley’s airy and enticing vocals weave through dreamy piano melodies and bouncy synths. This light-hearted single takes listeners on an uplifting journey and showcases Ashley’s authentic pop style.

“I wrote and recorded ‘Unbreakable’ in London. It was one of my favorite writing sessions because their energy was so natural. The song literally wrote itself and came alive in the studio. I was just ending a relationship and this song was my final phase of getting through it. I found an undeniable power within, and channeled it with this song that closed the chapter and opened a new one at the same time. This will forever be one of my favorites,” says Ashley J.

“Unbreakable,” focuses on overcoming heartbreak and moving on for the better. She chronicles past experiences, noting that she has been through a lot. However she now knows better and is going to make her heart “unbreakable.” This empowering song is intended to encourage and enable women to be free and embrace their independence.

This writing technique is definitely no stranger to Ashley J; she revealed it in the past with her hit single, “Dare Ya” which earned her a Top 10 Billboard chart spot in 2016. The following year, Ashley J unraveled a different side to her storytelling with her single “Trapped.” The song described a dark infatuation with a partner whom she couldn’t break free from, which was released earlier this year. “Trapped” continues to climb the European Independent Music Charts, reaching a sweet spot of #2.

About Ashley J:

Growing up in Orlando, the multi-talented songwriter/singer was influenced by Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and her all time musical hero, Dolly Parton, Ashley J started songwriting and singing at a very early age. Her musical style intertwines unapologetic pop with enticing electronic melodies. She earned a BA degree in Business Law from the University of North Texas and attended the Dr. Phillips High School of Performing Arts in Orlando, where she scored leading roles in theatre, dance and musical productions.
