Susan’s Playlist Sept 1 – 4, 2014 ~ The Unofficial Guide to the Nia Principles: Music & The 8BC System

0508201.jpgPrinciple 3: Music & The 8BC System invites us to listen from a state of RAW: Relaxed body, Alert mind and Waiting spirit. By listening from RAW, we can hear silence and sound and the details of music whether it is the sounds made by AfroCelt Sound System, Miles Davis, leaves moving in the trees, or children playing.

Below are the playlists from this week. Enjoy and listen deeply!

Dance on. Shine on.

P.S. FOCUS POCUS NATURAL TIME MUSIC GIVE AWAY: I’m extending the offer I made in the Principle 2: Natural Time Post: email me (sjmnia@gmail.com) a picture of yourself wearing the 13-Moon Calendar color of the day and I’ll send you (or hand it to you if you’re in Cville) a CD of Nia music, either Sanjana or Dreamwalker (both official Nia CDs) or the Unofficial Guide Playlist (which is decidedly NOT official)! I’m only announcing this here so only Focus Pocus readers are in on this! [And even though it sounds like a McDonald’s contest disclaimer: good in the US only (unless you want me to email you the tunes); limit one per person; while supplies last; void where prohibited.]
