What? There's only one discussion going on in the Pub?

That's definitely not enough. Barman! Another drink for me and the boys!

In the meantime I'll choose a song from the Jukebox:

Good one, I like this old-time, roadhouse blues-rock.

so do i sodo i :)

I just saw these guys in concert tonight. Great show!

Another classic from last night.

Don't you feel me? By Damon. This was played during the closing credits of last night's episode of True Blood. According to this blog post this is classic psychedelic rock from the late 60s and I've never heard it before. Anyone else familiar with this?

Here's the entire album:

This year at the Integral Theory Conference Hampson and Edwards did a presentation called "Awaken: The transformative music and lyrics of the progressive rock group Yes." One can view a copy of it at this link, along with several other conference presentations. One excerpt:

"Close to the Edge (1972), which 'is widely regarded as the pinnacle of their career and the finest progressive rock album ever made' (O’Reilly, 2012, ¶5 p.1]. The eighteen-minute-long title track is inspired, inter alia, by the Herman Hesse novel, Siddhartha (1922/2008). O’Reilly offers the perspective that

'Close to the Edge refers to the razor’s edge between stability and chaos, between the known and the unknown, between the Apollonian and the Dionysian. Being Close to the Edge means pushing the envelope, brushing up against the limits of the possible and coming away with a glimpse or a taste of the transcendent. … / Close to the Edge is above all an archetypal journey into the realm of mystical consciousness and selfrealization (¶5 p.5).'"

With that in mind, enjoy:

I like that song a lot. A very interesting middle eastern mix blended with electronic pulse. And that voice and melody, wow. I must have more!

Yes, I love her voice.  Here's another song, and a live version of Siip Siie.

Oh, and one more live one...

Reading up a bit on Ekova it said she sometimes sings in French, English and "no known language." I like that, her voice as a pure instrument using 'words' with no definite meaning. Like glossolalia:

incomprehensible speech in an imaginary language, sometimes occurring in a trance state, an episode of religious ecstasy, or schizophrenia.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
