Mark Anderson - After serving eight years in the Arizona House of Representatives, and two years in the State Senate, Mark Anderson was re-elected to the Arizona House of Representatives and has been appointed Chairman of the K-12 Education Committee. He also serves on the Appropriations and Human Services Committees.

As previous chairman of the House Human Services Committee, Anderson was primarily responsible for the legislation implementing the federal welfare reform changes of 1996. One of the key provisions of that legislation was a charity tax credit which has served as a model for enhancing charitable giving. Anderson was also the prime sponsor of Arizona’s charitable choice legislation opening the door for faith-based service providers as well as a statewide abstinence-until-marriage education program for youth.

Other important legislation that Anderson has sponsored includes marriage skills courses funded by federal welfare dollars for couples to provide skills to strengthen marriage and prevent divorce and legislation to protect children from Internet pornography in public schools and libraries. Other bills include the nation’s first tuition tax credit which allows children to receive scholarships to attend private and religious schools by giving a full 100% tax credit to donors, a bill to give teachers more authority to remove disruptive children from the classroom, and a bill to help young fathers learn responsibility and find a job.

Two years ago, Representative Anderson was the prime sponsor of legislation creating a new prison transition program to reduce the recidivism rate of inmates returning to prison. Last year, Anderson led the effort to remove junk food from the public schools and is working on legislation this year to require minimum standards for physical education in order to enhance children’s health and academic achievement.

Prior to running for the legislature, Anderson was the executive director of a non-profit organization. He currently is a realtor, is married and has three children and one grandchild.

Prema Rupa Kirtan Form of Love - draws upon soulful songs honoring the Divine Presence from the traditions of Hindi kirtan, Sanskrit and Buddhist chanting, and Sufi qawwali.

Prema Rupa does not perform, but rather facilitates the kirtan chanting experience for yoga practitioners, devotees of the Divine, and those who may want to learn chanting as sadhana - daily devotional practice. The chant leaders render simple phrases, usually in Sanskrit or Hindi, allowing equal measure for the "mirror response" of the participants in the session. The purpose of the kirtan is a shared experience of concentration in the joy of sacred music.

Adam Burke, Forrest Redford Burke, Greg Davis, and Debbie Elman are Prema Rupa. Spanning three decades, they have among them the collective experience of living, working, and praying in India; a proficiency in Hindi and Sanskrit; chant leaders and musicians for Paramahansa Yogananda's Self-Realization Fellowship; Sacred Circle Dancing, Sufi Dances of Universal Peace, and Sacred Tibetan Buddhist Dances; a student of sitar, vocal and tabla from the Ali Akbar College of Music and other Indian masters. The instruments that accompany the Prema Rupa musicians include harmonium, sitar, tamboura, tabla, cymbals and bells, swarmandal, and Tibetan bowls. Presentation: "Chants and Meditations of India"

 

Mark Patterson - Sedona's Remarkable Sound Healer Mark Patterson was given the ability to heal others through sound in a Near Death Experience. He is often described as a "human singing bowl" as he resonates the pure tones of various Tibetan bowls. These tones clear space, balance energy, and create a deep sense of peace within. He attended undergraduate and graduate school at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM. (Psychology and Communications) Mark's documentary DVD and CD entitled "The Sound of Stillness" will be available. These tones are of a divine nature and they heal. Mark has found that Crystal and Indigo children benefit from these tones as they enable "psychic" children to become focused and balanced without prescription medication. Mark currently resides in Sedona, AZ, where he is available for private sessions. 928-273-3777 - Mark will be chanting out the various names of mystics, messengers, and masters of various faiths on Sunday afternoon. If you find Tom Kenyon's Garvandana Ceremony and his work of interest, you will not want to miss Mark's gift of divine sound.
John Hinton - From the beginning of time, sacred movement, song and story have brought people together. The Dances of Universal Peace are joyous, multicultural ways to touch the spiritual essence in each of us. John Hinton has been a leader of the Dances for 14 years and will share his musical talents as we circle up for the Dances. John has sung and played devotional music from many traditions since he was a child, and continues to do so with his wife, Debra. Together, with friends, they host Devotional Fusion – regular musical gatherings celebrating The One in many traditions.
