"In Celebration of the Music That
Soothes the Soul"
Where there is music, there
is healing. There is life. There
is love. There is art; there is heart!
There is peace. There is grace.
There is celebration!
This is what music has meant
to me my entire life. It is, in all
truth, my ultimate healer.
We have used musical sound
largely as entertainment in the past.
Music as therapy explores the very real and positive effects sound can
have upon all of us, and its potential to heal. Music is one of the most
powerful healing forces available to us today.
Music may slow us down,
stretching out our thoughts until the bad and useless obsessive and egoic thoughts
tumble away, leaving just the benevolent witness, the repose.
Music may also uplift and
inspire us, giving birth to creativity, clarity, and depth….not to
mention: enlightenment, insight,
balance, and just plain joy.
The 2014 International
Holistic Lifestyle Expo is
bringing together four notable musicians to create and set the scene for the
Symbolizing the tradition of the
Medicine Wheel, a musician will occupy each
of the four directions, and will at various intervals throughout the event,
give brief performances.
With our four musicians at
every corner, we also look forward to Bob Sabo leading drum circles in the
center of the "wheel", where we have always enjoyed him in the past.

Also joining us again this year is Dr. Terry Gordon, "the wounded healer."
|Dr. Terry Gordon
As a cardiologist, Dr. Terry Gordon dealt with life-and-death circumstances
on a daily basis. He learned that life is precious and tenuous; it can change in an instant. Such a dramatic shift occurred
when his son, Tyler, was involved in a car accident, sustaining a severe spinal-cord injury that left him paralyzed. Leading
his family through the experience, Terry's journey resulted in a spiritual awakening to a clearer understanding of life and
the truths it has to offer. Terry has learned that our experiences become calamities only if we make the conscious decision
to make tragedies out of them. Rather than lamenting the so-called adversities, we can choose to be grateful for them, embracing
them as gifts from the Divine. These gifts provide fertile soil for growth and enlightenment, offering us the opportunity
to transform turmoil, disappointment, and suffering into understanding, insight, and resolve . . . and such gifts are presented
to you in:

Joy, Family, and the path to God. On her newest Cd, “Spirit, Speak to Me”, released in September 2012, Jody’s

Jim Cipiti of "Heart-Strings"
has been playing guitar since he was 5 years old, offering 40 years of wisdom behind his melodies. A spiritual person, his
earliest recollections, have compelled him to choose the Path of Enlightenment more often than not throughout his lifetime.
IHLE is delighted to have the opportunity to include Jim's art to this year's
expo, where his music will continually be creating a sacred space throughout the weekend--the reason being, that he sends
Reiki energy out through his music wherever, and whenever he performs. Incorporating Reiki and healing frequency techniques
into the music of his life is one of his greatest joys.
will also make himself available for speaking one-on-one with our guests about his music.
In his own words…"The Golden Strings of Our Hearts Vibrate To the Frequencies of Life
All Around Us.
Learn to tune into the highest vibrations of Love, Truth, and Light, and we can create new Chords, Melodies,
and Harmonies that will re-write the Song of Our Lives and raise Our Vibrations, promoting Peace and Balance.
May The Symphony Of Your True Being Reverberate Into Eternity…"

IHLE is pleased to announce the return
of NAMA award-winning artist for "best world album", Michael Searching Bear!
Michael is a great draw for the expo, as he is an accomplished world musician
whose love for music and search for his Native heritage led him to the Native American wood flute.
He is a flute player with a “traditional” or “old” style sound. His
flute playing incorporates many techniques that are unique to the traditional Native style. Barks, chirps, trills and other
techniques which often mimic sounds heard in nature are not uncommon and weave their way through the melodies.
Says Michael, “It’s as if it has been inside of me all my life.
This is how I have always heard the flute in my mind. I have a vague memory of certain sounds from my childhood. One of those
was the flute. I searched for many years to find the instrument that was the sound I heard in my head, in my memories. Then
one day I happened to be doing a search on the Internet, of all places, and came across a sound clip. I knew instantly that
this was the sound I was looking for and so began my journey to find this instrument. It was the Native American wood flute
and I’ve been in love with this instrument ever since.”
