the PLANT/HERB people........
The resounding VOICE of the Wise Women Tradition.
I am her 109th apprentice and proud of it.

one of my absolutely favorite herbalist/writers and itís his take on Teasel that I credit for my being able to finally conquer Lyme Disease

I used to work for them!
WILD MAN STEVE BRILL
Once arrested for eating a dandelion in Central Park (removing native vegetation, I believe they called it) Steve has been sharing our Weedy Wonders with folks in NYCity for YEARS.
A true Goddess of Temple BellyDance, Gretchen has done more to bring women back to that ancient, sacred, empowered realm of dance than anyone I know. To see her dance with her snakes is mesmerizing and utterly magnificent. Itís been a privilege to have danced with her AND with her snakes
Another dancing Goddess among us (on the east coast) and a wonderful, joyous teacher. I got to see Willow do her sword dance at a gathering and it is one of the memorable performances I can recall. Just magnificent. Itís been a pleasure to dance with Willow a few times, sheís an amazing, warm presence.
THE COSTUME GODDESS
Dina Lydia earns her title on a DAILY basis. She's got this whole costume thing FIGURED out, from how to flatter just EVERY body type to BRILLIANT tricks for keeping costumes comfy and together. She's now offering FIVE books she's published.
MIDDLE EASTERN DANCE at Suite 101
Shira (Julie Elliot) has most CERTAINLY done her homework. Her topic goes everywhere from history to performing ethics to music and video reviews. Her OWN site is a resource extraordinaire.
my favorite MUSIC folks.......
He's NYCity's SONGMAN and has been just forever. He sings our hearts and soothes our souls and makes us laugh and voices our rage, all with SUCH a wonderful voice. (and he's a damned good writer and just one of the dearest souls I've ever known)
Speaking of dear souls and major sweethearts, Chris has been composing and playing since I knew him in jr high. And he JUST keeps getting better. Now doing major soundtracks (A&E's History of Radio City was a splendid one) he's one BUSY guy with a beautiful web site, and his heart very tuned to the Wild Things.
aka Mr. New....aka DRUMMAH....definite Major Sweetheart AND one of the true 'Wild Things', Jeff builds web sites out of pure madness, mad music and just TONS of crazily wonderful folks. Jeff has drummed for a number of my impromptu BellyDance performances......ohhhhhh YEAH!
from whence the HEALING comes.......
HOLISTIC HEALING CENTER
Paul Aurand has assembled QUITE the collection of talented healers and teachers in Rockland County, NY. This is where I received my hypnotherpy certification and advanced training.
Quite possibly one of the most deeply spiritual, brilliant, no-nonsense voices of our age. I've learned more life-changing things through her than just about anyone else I can think of. Her tape of "Why people don't heal and how they can" was a real turning point. Web site's a little hard to find your way around the first time, but keep poking.
