Yoga Nidra, or “dynamic sleep,” is a unique approach to deep relaxation, meditation and transformative dreamwork that can be practiced with little or no yogic experience, yet it encompasses the full breadth of yoga psychology and meditative insight. Yoga Nidra is typically ‘delivered’ to a group by a trained instructor, though it may also be employed in a one-on-one setting (e.g., in place of or as an adjunct to counseling, psychotherapy, energy work, etc.) and, ultimately, may become the foundation of your yoga practice and journey of self-discovery. This comprehensive and nourishing 15-hour teacher training and retreat-style experience will feature gentle movement, breath work, and several opportunities to both receive and guide the immensely restorative, deep relaxation of Yoga Nidra. The training will also feature integrative discussion/Q&A on the philosophy and evidenced-based research supporting the practice, including how it relates to waking, dreaming (e.g., lucid dreaming) and consciousness, healing trauma, releasing anxiety, alleviating insomnia, overcoming nightmares, etc. Among our learning objectives are for you to: • Receive a succinct yet adaptable method for delivering Yoga Nidra to diverse audiences. • Explore ways to incorporate Yoga Nidra into yoga classes, schools, health care clinics, private practice, home/family life, etc. • Examine the theoretical and philosophical foundations of Yoga Nidra, including how it relates to counseling theory, psychology, yoga, mindfulness, Buddhism, etc., as well as evidenced-based research, trauma-informed approaches and ethical concerns. • Practice how to connect with yourself and others, foster empathy and develop clear boundaries, while instilling additional strategies for self-care, wellness and prevention. • Develop tools for deepening your own practice, finding your voice, and speaking authentically from your heart. • Learn to relax more deeply into the present moment, let go of your fears, revitalize yourself and tap into vast creative resources. This program is open to all levels and no experience is needed. All participants will receive a training manual and, upon fulfillment of all course requirements, a certificate of completion for Level I. Yoga Alliance members are eligible to receive 15 hours of CE credit. Dates: August 24-26, 2018 Cost: $375/ $300 before July 24th About the presenter: Nick Atlas, Ph.D., E-RYT 500 is a light-hearted, grounded and accessible meditation instructor specializing in integrative approaches to sleep, dreams, deep relaxation and stress reduction. The Director of Evolutionary Education® and 200-hr Yoga Psychology Teacher Trainings, Dr. Nick also teaches Transpersonal Psychology at Atlantic University and conducts pioneering research on Yoga Nidra and lucid dreaming.

One of Memphis’ best-kept secrets, entertainer JROQSOL, is a unique hybrid of Memphis soul, gospel, and mainstream Pop/R&B.
This born and bred Memphis native developed his craft in his father’s church at the early age of 4, singing songs such as those by the renowned gospel group The Clark Sisters and vocalist extraordinaire Daryl Coley. Around this time, he also began secretly listening to Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Rounding out his trifecta of musical influences, J also listened to the likes of Al Green, Stevie Wonder, and Aretha Franklin. Before reaching his teen years, J began to form gospel groups, to perfect not only singing but also songwriting. Further training with various recording artists in Memphis sharpened his talent. While gaining an extensive knowledge of gospel music, it was expected of J to continue on the path of a gospel recording artist; however, his heart was elsewhere.
After transitioning from college, he began performing secular music at various events throughout Memphis. After years of hard work, J released well-received mixtapes that integrated his own original music. While teaming up with longtime friend and producer, Keenan Smith, the roots of his sound “ROQSOL” began to form. “ROQSOL is my sound. It’s the combination of all the sounds I grew up listening to. I’m just J. My artistry is ROQSOL.”

DISCOVER local music. SUPPORT independent artists. Lunch & Listen is a free, casual lunchtime networking event and listening session that provides members of the music community with an opportunity to showcase their work, discover local talent, and broaden their network with the intent to inspire collaboration and musical growth. Occurring on the last Friday of every month, August's Lunch & Listen will feature Mojo Medicine Machine. MOJO MEDICINE MACHINE began in 2016 and was the collaborative vision of two good friends and band mates – Rick and Pete. The musical direction is based on SOULFUL ROCK’N ROLL, HEAVY BLUES, R&B and FUNK. Their debut album entitled ‘REMEDY FOR THE SOUL’ was recorded at the iconic Royal Studios (Royal Records) in Memphis, TN and was produced and engineered by Grammy Award-winning producer Lawrence ‘Boo’ Mitchell. Creating this awesome music inside Royal Studios was pure magic and an honor for the band since it is where so many greats like Al Green, Keith Richards, Paul Rogers, Melissa Etheridge and many others made their mark. The band draws from a multitude of influences and styles ranging from Rock'n Roll, Motown and R&B to Jazz and Funk… all of which contribute to their sound, onstage mojo and stellar live presentations. MOJO MEDICINE MACHINE captures the Memphis / Mississippi vibe while definitely crossing international borders! Promoting the success of MOJO MEDICINE MACHINE and their new album is top priority by touring with their highly energized show! MOJO MEDICINE MACHINE'S charismatic look, sound, and live presentation set them apart from the rest of the pack. ***If you would like to be featured in an upcoming Lunch & Listen, email info [at] theconsortiummmt [dot] org with information about yourself and links to your music.

Rhonda Vincent is a firecracker of talent that powers one of the hottest shows in any genre of music! World-class musicians and an award-winning voice seamlessly set the stage for a breathtaking, one-of-a-kind, must-see performance that reaches beyond the boundaries of bluegrass.
Written words can give you but a glimpse of the artist known as The Queen of Bluegrass, as deemed by the Wall Street Journal. But it's only when you see this artist, that you can feel the energy and experience the excitement of her music, to truly know why she and her amazing band are the most award-winning band in bluegrass music history, with over 100 awards.
Breaking a stereotypical image, Rhonda Vincent takes the stage in designer gowns and stiletto heels in a take-charge manner, far from the type set that Hollywood has portrayed as the image of acoustic music.
Rhonda Vincent makes having a successful career look easy. Behind the scenes, she’s a savvy businesswoman with a tireless work ethic. At center stage, she makes a magical transformation to wow her audiences all while showing off her chops as the genre's finest vocalist and playing break-neck riffs on the mandolin.
The voice of Rhonda Vincent is the centerpiece, surrounded by the rhythms of each instrument, featuring the individual styles of the musicians that collectively make up The Rage. Their talent is unmatched. Each and every member can sing every part and play every instrument. Their depth of skill sets the stage for the highest level of professionalism in every performance.

There's a moment in the title song of the new Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite album called No Mercy In This Land. A mere few seconds that powerfully capture the friendship and unique collaboration between the two storied musicians. The music, a primal and intimate blues, stops with the exception of a sustained organ note. Musselwhite, survivor and harmonica virtuoso, cohort of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Little Walter in the early sixties, life nearly ended by alcohol and other maladies, leans in and delivers the lines, "Father left us down here all alone, my poor mother is under a stone. With an aching heart and trembling hands, is there no mercy in this land." And with those words, that weary voice, you can hear it all — the highs and lows, the adventures, the sadness and all the loss.
"I never asked Ben about the lyrics," Charlie reflects, "but my mom was a single mom and I was an only child. And the line, 'my poor mother is under a stone,' well, she was murdered. So she's gone and she's under a stone. This is personal to me. It's the essence of blues. People talk about the blues from an academic standpoint, but to me it's about feeling. And that feeling there is pure. That song moves me every time."
Ben says the two never discussed the meaning of the lyrics. "It's fragile territory what he went through with his mom," Ben says. "I was scared to bring that to him, because I know what happened. And that line, it's me being affected by my friend and what happened to him. With Charlie, some things I pick up on are spoken and some are unspoken, but we know a lot about each other. But the deepest part of our friendship doesn't need to be said. 'No Mercy In This Land,' that song is for Charlie. It's gotta hurt sometimes."
No Mercy In This Land is a blues record. Charlie Musselwhite and Ben Harper were introduced to one another by John Lee Hooker. The legendary musician thought the two men should play together, so he brought them into the studio to record a song called simply "Burnin' Hell." The two remained friends and their paths periodically crossed out there on the road. But it wasn't until 2013 that the two met up in a studio to record what would be their Grammy-winning album Get Up!. And as good as that record was, it was just the beginning. They both agree that their friendship deepened in the many months of touring that followed. And it's that bond, that closeness, that makes this new record something special.

Not only did it bow at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200, but it yielded a massive hit in the form of the title track “Brand New.” Clocking 41 million-plus streams on Spotify, the single organically landed over 40 film and television placements, including a trailer for The Edge of Seventeen, a TV spot for Disney’s Moana, syncs in a Weight Watchers campaign starring Oprah, and MLB World Series and Olympics primetime spots. At radio, it went Top 5 Hot AC and AC and Top 30 pop.
Along the way, Ben has independently accumulated consumption numbers of more than 495,000 albums and 5,300,000 tracks, becoming one of the top-earning artists on TuneCore, the world’s leading digital music aggregator.
Bring a chair or a blanket! It’s free, fun, fast, and for everyone! Ideal for families and picnics, this quick-fire version of Two Gents provides a rare opportunity to laugh at Shakespeare’s first comedy – and perhaps even his very first play. He takes a well-known comedy of a love triangle and re-shapes it into a love rectangle, introduces strong female characters (one of whom takes on Shakespeare’s first “pants role” before the more famous Viola and Rosalind do), creates wise-cracking servants Speed and Launce, and even adds bandits to the mix. But for all that, the play remains famous for one particular role: Crab the dog. Even as the story ranges from the shocking to the hilarious, Crab sits non-plussed.

Dennis Quaid and the Sharks have been performing in front of thousands of people receiving rave reviews. He is not just another actor turned rock star, he is a rock star.
Dennis Quaid is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist. He performs many original plus classic hits such as "Spill the Wine," "Gloria," and many more.
The band's origins can be traced to one night when Quaid went to see actor Harry Dean Stanton and his longtime band (appropriately named the Harry Dean Stanton Band) perform at an L.A. club.
Quaid was invited to join the band onstage. At first reluctant because of his decade-long layoff from music, Quaid finally did perform with the band and was successful enough that James, also a member of Stanton's band, approached Quaid about starting a group of their own.
James quickly began recruiting others for the band and it wasn't long before Dennis Quaid and the Sharks, which specializes in "rock 'n' roll and country-soul," was performing at L.A. clubs.
The band even throws in a Jerry Lee Lewis song or two in the mix, such as "Great Balls of Fire," which Quaid has firsthand experience performing, having played "The Killer" in a 1989 biopic.
Quaid said the shows are as much fun for those in attendance as they are for the band. "[The audiences] have a blast, which is all we want," he said. "I make a complete and utter fool of myself. I think that's the only way to have fun [onstage], instead of trying to pretend to be cool and all the rest of that stuff."
The "Look Up Child" Tour
With special guests Scott Mulvahill & Infinity’s Song
Life experience often serves to sharpen a songwriter’s edge and provide them with a more colorful palette to draw from when creating images with their music. Though she’s young, Lauren Daigle has lived a lot of life and those experiences — some challenging and others exhilarating — enrich her perspective and create her heartfelt worship music.
Blessed with a voice that is both smoky and sweet, Daigle has forged a unique sound that combines the soulful, heart-in-throat vulnerability of Adele, with the passionate fire to serve God that Daigle admires in Brooke Fraser. Her Centricity Music debut, How Can It Be, is ripe with the kind of compelling lyrics and engaging melodies that invite listeners to draw closer to their creator, and that’s just what Daigle had in mind.
“There’s a continuing theme on this record — trust,” says Daigle. “My heart’s cry is that people feel empowered as a body of Christ. It’s just heavy on my heart for all of us to rise up in unity and recognize the goodness of God. My hope is that people are empowered by knowing who they belong to, knowing that they are the son or daughter of God, and in response to that being able to worship fully, worship with complete abandon.”
Faith and music have been intertwined in the Louisiana native’s life since birth. Growing up in a region steeped in blues, country, zydeco, and Cajun music has inspired her to frame her worship music in a unique light. But Daigle admits she almost pushed music to the backburner, unsure if it was her true calling, until a devastating illness brought her young life into sharper focus.
TWO OF MOTOWN'S GREATEST BANDS ON ONE STAGE
About The Temptations: For more than fifty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world.
“The crowds are bigger, the sales are sizzling,” says one industry report. “The outpouring of affection for this super-group has never been greater.”
The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine invented by Berry Gordy, The Temps began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn’t until 1964 however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do the Things You Do” turned the guys into stars.
An avalanche of hits followed, many of which...”My Girl,” for instance...attained immortality. “It’s Growing,” “Since I Lost My Baby,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Beauty Is Only Skin Deep,” “I Wish It Would Rain”...the hits kept coming.
About The Four Tops: The quartet, originally called the Four Aims, made their first single for Chess in 1956, and spent seven years on the road and in nightclubs, singing pop, blues, Broadway, but mostly jazz—four-part harmony jazz. When Motown’s Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had hustled a national Tonight Show appearance, he signed them without an audition to be the marquee act for the company’s Workshop Jazz label. That proved short-lived, and Stubbs’ powerhouse baritone lead and the exquisite harmonies of Fakir, Benson, and Payton started making one smash after another with the writing-producing trio Holland-Dozier-Holland.
Their first Motown hit, “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” a No. 1 R&B and pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest-running chart toppers; it was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song” (No. 2 R&B/No. 5 pop). Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy: the no. 1 “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing In The Shadows Of Love” (No. 2 R&B/No. 6 pop) and “Bernadette” (No. 3 R&B/No. 4 pop) — an extraordinary run of instant H-D-H classics. Other top hits from the decade included “Ask The Lonely,” “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over),” “Something About You,” “You Keep Running Away,” “7-Rooms Of Gloom” and their covers of “Walk Away Renee” and “If I Were A Carpenter.” The group was also extraordinarily popular in the U.K.

About Kirk Whalum: Soulful, passionate, stirring...these are the words most often used to describe Kirk’s music. Forged from his Memphis gospel roots and his 1980's initiation into the thriving Houston nightclub scene, Kirk’s big, rich tenor sound is unmistakably his. The 80s were highlighted by Kirk’s stepping out of his blossoming sideman role and forming his own band. It was there that Kirk ultimately developed both his “voice” and songwriting in the crucible of the local club scene — especially at a rooftop club called Cody’s. It was also in Houston where jazz pianist Bob James “discovered” him and brought him on tour, which led to five successful albums with Columbia Records, including Cache, Kirk’s first No. 1 album. Kirk and Bob also received a Grammy nomination for their collaboration album, Joined at the Hip.
After moving to Los Angeles, Kirk became an in-demand session player for top artists like Barbara Streisand, Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross, Larry Carlton, Quincy Jones, and, most notably, Whitney Houston, amongst many others. It’s his sax heard on the mega-hit, “I Will Always Love You.” Kirk soon followed that career high point with his phenomenal hit album released on Warner Bros. Records, For You, perhaps the most successful of over 25 solo recordings to date. Others include his eclectic, and much-lauded, Gospel According to Jazz series, (Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4). In addition to his many solo projects, Kirk was also a member of the popular soul/jazz group, BWB, which features Kirk as the “W” of the group with Rick Braun (trumpet) and Norman Brown (guitar).

50 INTIMATE NIGHTS LIVE
Maxwell has artfully managed to transfix music lovers for more than two decades, releasing four studio albums, all in his own time — all duly anointed as classics. Now, the Brooklyn-born soul legend returns with his fifth album, BlackSUMMERS’night, the long-awaited second installment of his trailblazing trilogy, a powerful reminder that great music really is about more than moving the Twitter needle.
Maxwell’s reentry into the pop orbit straddles but never strains the fertile groundwork he’s already laid as an R&B/soul pioneer. His seminal 1996 debut album, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite, which The New York Times credited for "turning away gangsta" machismo to reclaim the utopian spirit of 1970s soul has been enthusiastically re-celebrated recently in an avalanche of commemorative articles marking the 20th anniversary of the genre spawning debut.
His last album, 2009’s No. 1 debuting, Grammy-winning BLACKsummers’night and its signature single “Pretty Wings” (which owned the top spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart for 4 and a half months), tamped down Chapter 1 of the sensual, pathfinding trilogy. The album landed on most critics’ Year’s Best lists and snared two Grammys, with Rolling Stone praising it as an "album about love, not sex, for grown-ups who know the difference."
