We can slow down, and cultivate peacefulness and inner quiet—celebrating our vulnerability and common humanity," says Gilad. During the full-participation event, the group will explore a mystical Hebrew vocal meditation that connects us to our roots, five-element healing chants (shown to induce relaxation and focus) that connect us to our Source, and natural rhythms from the ancients. Eliana Gilad, an author and composer influenced by classical and Mediterranean music, lectures and teaches workshops on the conscious use of voice and rhythm, as they were used in ancient times--for centering and healing. Her credits include presenting with Dr. Masaru Emoto of "What the Bleep Do We Know!?” fame. She has performed at the United Nations and with the Andalusian Orchestra, Arab & Jewish Neonatal wards, and toured with Bobby McFerrin.

Hot and very LGBT, Here! TV's Dante's Cove is now available on DVD!
Dante's CoveAs the season begins, Kevin Archer leaves an abusive home to follow his boyfriend, Toby, to Dante’s Cove, a remote tropical island populated by beautiful young residents, gay and straight. Unknown to Kevin, Dante’s Cove has a dark and dangerous history, and he is unwittingly being drawn into a web of supernatural intrigue. Arriving at the Hotel Dante (built in the 1840’s and recently converted into Here! TV's Dante's Coveapartments) Kevin meets his new housemates: Van, a mysterious lesbian artist drawn to the dark side of human nature, Cory, a carefree party-boy who’ll hook up with any guy who’s interested, and Adam, Toby’s straight best friend from high school – who is secretly in love with Toby.

Here! TV's Dante's CoveAt first Kevin and Toby’s reunion is wonderful. But soon, Kevin begins hearing a strange voice coming from within the hotel – a voice that is summoning him. Drawn to the basement, Kevin stumbles upon Ambrosius Vallin, an immortal warlock imprisoned for over a hundred and fifty years. In 1840, Ambrosius was engaged to marry Grace Neville, a powerful practitioner of “Tresum”, an ancient supernatural religion. When Grace found Ambrosius making love with another man, she killed his lover and cursed Ambrosius to an eternity locked in the Dante’s basement. Only the kiss of a young man would set Ambrosius free. Having successfully made Kevin hear his call, Ambrosius summons him to the basement and forces Kevin to kiss him. The kiss from Kevin breaks the curse.

Here! TV's Dante's CoveNot content to be young and free again, Ambrosius decides Kevin is his destiny, and will stop at nothing to have him. He puts a spell on Kevin, and also turns Cory into a sort of personal slave and spy so that he can keep an eye on Kevin. But Grace won’t allow Ambrosius to find love or happiness, and uses her magic to murder Kevin. Ambrosius, who learned Tresum’s powers while locked in the basement, Here! TV's Dante's Covesucceeds in reviving Kevin. Meanwhile, searching the historical society for an explanation of the strange happenings in Dante’s Cove, Toby and Van find the Book of Tresum written in a strange ancient language. Van is able to cast a spell from the book and break the curse on Kevin, freeing him from Ambrosius’ hold. It seems like a happy ending, until Ambrosius uses Cory to lure Toby away from the sleeping Kevin, and throws Toby into the ocean to drown.
