Who are violinist Sholpan Beibitbayeva and pianist Renee Miles??  Here goes…  [cue background music]

Renee Miles was first inspired to play piano by picking out songs from
TV’s Captain Kangaroo at age 6 (lessons followed shortly – thnaks Mom & Dad!).
As a teenager, playing for Tom Coleman III’s Young People’s Theater, then later,
Savannah Little Theater and Savannah Community Theatre, she was afforded
wonderful musical opportunities and great theater, as well as hilarious memories -
ask and the cockroach and West Side Story.  Some of her favorite shows include
“Guys and Dolls,” “I Do! I Do!,” “Man of La Mancha,” and “Hands of the Spirit.”  During
these times, Renee had the good fortune to work with [later] Tony-nominated
Isabelle Keating, Blue Man Group co-founder and actor Phillip Stanton, Savannah’s
extraordinary Gary Swindell, and Savannah Children’s Theater co-founder
Danny Filson, also Vice President, Savannah College of Art & Design.

This paved the way for becoming involved with area churches, including Savannah Christian
and Island’s Christian, playing with incredible local musicians and singers, including
two that Blues Review Quarterly Anniversary Edition calls…………………….………..
harp player Bobby Hanson and his partner Michael Amburgey on steel guitar,
Steffen Clark, Skip Hinely, Lonnie Mercier, Don Briola, Chip Skinner,
Ricky Stokes, whose song….. went to #1 on a Billboard Charts, Rick Gray, Gary Swindell, and
Ronn Alford.

Renee studied music at Armstrong State C ollege before switching over and completing a
degree in Education.  She has played venues in both Savannah and Hilton Head and loves
the warmth and musical environment of the low country.


Sholpan Beibitbayeva is originally from Kazakhstan, she first studied the violin at age 7 in the Kazakh Republic Special Music School.  Beginning at age 8 she began playing with the violinist’s ensemble and performed on big stages including the Grand Kremlin Palace Concert Hall in Moscow Russia.

She continued her studies at the Conservatory of Music in Kazakhstan and received her Bachelor of Music in Performance and Teaching.  During her University years she began to work in the Opera and Ballet Theatre.  She then started to play in Radio and TV Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra of Kazakhstan.

Later, Sholpan and her violinist twin sister performed as a duo for two violins.  They also performed as a duo for violin and guitar where Sholpan had success as a guitar player.  As a duo, Sholpan and her twin sister performed in many events including Presidential performances and summit conferences around Russia and Kazakhstan.

Sholpan is currently advancing her music repertoire by studying jazz with Savannah Georgia’s famous jazz player and teacher, “Teddy Adams”.

Sholpan is currently performing with her new Duo called “AngelFire” in Savannah Georgia and surrounding areas.

“Put on a Happy Face” — Guest Post by Neal Saye


Sometimes you just gotta do it.

“What?” you ask.

Put on a Happy Face.

Yes?  No?

Don’t get me wrong.  Other times you need to wail and mourn.  (I’m REALLY good at wailing.  Ask anyone who knows me well.  Or not so well.  Okay, okay, ask anyone who was in the theatre with me when I first saw Marley and Me.)

Seriously, I do believe there is a POWER in smiling and putting on a happy face.

Apparently, so does Penny Marshall.  (PLEASE tell me that at least four or five of you know who I’m talking about.)  Here she is on The Captain and Tennille Show back in the late sixties when I was in graduate, I mean grade school.

Listen to her lesson:


May your face and body and heart and soul be happy this Tuesday night.

If you can, try to put happiness on.

Lotsa Happy Faces: Here

Want to Let It Go? Now is Your Chance!


Kyle Shiver – The Spirit Center

kyle_ssi_002-3-258x300On Monday January 27th at 7:30 p.m. I will be atAnahata Healing Arts in Savannah to give a talk and lead a guided mediation on forgiveness. People are going to cry, people’s eyes are going to open and see things in a new light. Perceptions are going to change and people are going to let go of things that they have held on to for years. It is going to be hard and heavy, and then it is going to be easy and free and light as air. We are going to let it all go. We are going to have a new way to perceive. We will all leave a lot lighter that we were upon our arrival. 

I know how it is to carry hurt and to carry resentment, and not be able to let go. You want to let go, you understand that it doesn’t make sense to carry the pain, but still you can’t let it go. You don’t understand how anyone could possibly do or say what was done or said. It was not fair. Nobody deserves what you got.

So you are stuck with it.

In my line of work as an energy healer and life coach, I get all kinds. I hear things sometimes that most of us(thankfully) cannot even imagine. Then I hear other things that may not seem so challenging, but I understand that when you are challenged, you are challenged. That is that.

If it hurts, then it hurts. If it is a challenge, then it is a challenge. You should feel exactly the way you feel, and I will make no bones about that. You aren’t going to let it go just because you know you should, or because you know it is hurting you. If that would work, then you would have already let go. So what is the plan here? How do you forgive?

“A miracle is simply a shift in perception” Marianne Williamson

The only way to let go of something is to realize that there is nothing there to hold on to. A shift in perception will do it every time.

What: Forgiveness Meditation with Kyle Shiver
When: Monday January 27th at 7:30
Where: Anahata Healing Arts 
Address: 2424 Drayton Street, Savannah
Cost: Suggested $10 donation

Introducing Chakradance™

 Introducing the newest healing modality to come to the USA – Welcome to Chakradance™.

This is an introduction class to the 9 week Awakening classes that begin in February 5. 


This is a 9 week workshop that works through each of the 7 chakras and includes an introductory and an integration class as well. These classes run 90 minutes each.


Intro to Chakradance™ – Saturday, January 25  @1pm – 2;30pm

Class fee is $20
Email Donna Elliott for more info at
Phone: 912-663-1306

Blending free-flowing movements with particular frequencies of sound, Chakradance™ will free the energy in your body and open you to a deeper experience of life. A healing dance/movement practice that draws on a fusion of philosophies and musical styles, Chakradance™ aims to restore health to our chakras – the energy centers that, in Eastern tradition, are the gateways to integrating mind, body and spirit. No dance experience or prior knowledge of the chakras is necessary. Guided by music resonating to each of the seven chakras, Chakradance™ participants are taken on a spiritual dance journey. In a darkened room, lit only by candle-light, we move with our eyes closed, and our attention turned inwards, for unlike most other dance practices, Chakradance™ is about making a connection with our inner world – the world of our imagination, feelings, intuition and senses.

9 week Awakening Class Schedule: 2/5, 2/19, 3/5, 3/19, 4/2, 4/18, 5/7, 5/21

9 Week Class fee is $180 

Email Donna Elliott for more info at
Phone: 912-663-1306

Anahata One Year Celebration


Saturday, January 11:  New Year Celebration & Ribbon Cutting!


Here are co-founders, Joanne Morton and Lynn Geddess cutting the “GREEN RIBBON” to kick start Anahata 2.0!

The day started with Lynn & Joanne sharing the story of how Anahata Healing Arts came to be following by introducing all of the people who will be collaborating with us this year.  The event ended with a few people joining Donna Elliot in a Chakradance.

January 11 – 111 was chosen for this celebration because of the special meaning 111 has in Angel Numbers.


Number 111 means that energy gate is opened and your thoughts are materializing so quickly right now. Choose carefully your thoughts at this time. They need to be in harmony with your wishes and desires. Give absolutely no energy to fears, otherwise they can become reality and get fulfilled quicker than you thought.


Check out the pics from the day – thanks to Dickie Haskell for taking great pics!!

We have added a few new classes,  ”Tai Chi Fusion”,  ”All Levels Flow”, and “Chakradance” … more classes are forming.   Look for more special events happening here too – be sure to check our Facebook page & special events page on our website.

We are so grateful for all of the people who helped make this day a really special event for all of us — thank you to Angie Horne for organizing the food.  Special shout outs to Elisa Mason, Norman & Denise Flojo, Dave & Jenny Lyle, and to Paula Letcher of coffee.deli for providing with amazing spread!   We love our “Good Food” at AHA!

Certified Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy, Past Life Regression w/ Dolores Cannon, A+

2012 – 2012

Quantum Healing for the Mind, Body and Spirit.

QHHT is a technique of hypnosis created by Dolores Cannon which she has developed and refined over her 45 year career as a regressive hypnotherapist, working with thousands of clients in countries all over the world. I have taken training with Dolores and I am certified to practice her method for my own clients.

Some people might better understand the term “Past Life Regression”, and that is exactly how QHH started, with exploration of Past Lives. Today, with the expansion of human consciousness, more than just Past Lives are available to experience. Some people experience Future Lives, Parallel Lives, Lives on Other Planets, Lives in Other Dimensions. Some people visit the Spirit Side. Some people find themselves in the Akashic Records and still others visit the Temple of Healing. QHH focuses on the concept that the client will go to “the most appropriate time and place” to address any requests for healing or information.

Activities and Societies: Dedicated QHHT Therapist Level Two(Open)1 honor or award

Linda Morgan Owner and Director at Thunderbolt Counseling Services

Beverly is a caring, giving practitioner who follows the highest standards of hypnotherapy practice.

This is a great  video on Youtube of Dolores Cannon my teacher talking about what we do. I think you’ll find it fascinating!

Aroma Flow Weekend –

There is something aromatic coming from Anahata Healing Arts — and it’s our use of ESSENTIAL OILS (and this incense we have too!)

At Anahata, we understand the importance & VALUE of honoring all of ones senses — SIGHT – TOUCH – SOUND – TASTE and SMELL !

One of the easiest ways to strengthen your Sense of Smell is to use Essential Oils!   We are excited to be offering our clients Young Living Essential Oils for retail and wholesale use.    After taking one of Lynn’s Soul Progression Yoga Class, you are offered a cold washcloth that has been chilled with Eucalyptus s YL Essential Oil & water.

What a REFRESHING WAY to finish your practice.   This is also perfect after spending a hot afternoon in the Savannah heat!!

If you are interested in finding out more how to use Essential Oils

Please join us for AROMA FLOW WEEKEND!

Starts September 20/Friday @ 7pm – September 21/Saturday @10am & @7pm – September 22 /Sunday @1pm

 FRIDAY NIGHT – we hosting ANOTHER RAW DINNER PARTY!    The one we had last month was spectacular!   Conversation with gourmet food, smart people, kind hearts in a beautiful setting.   Such good energy!  As of September 11 – we have 7 Spots Left!
You can buy your tickets here …

On Saturday we have partnered up with Tybee Yoga & Healing Arts to host TWO AROMA FLOW Yoga classes with Bridget D’Arco.   

Flow Yoga is about linking the breath with the pose. One moves from pose to pose in a smooth, easy manner, like Meditation in Motion. Therapeutic Grade oils are known to create an environment that supports a deeper yoga practice.  Using essential oils in class is often a transformative experience for participants because of their inherent ability to shift the space ~ creating a palpable change in the energy of the room, a softening or sometimes expansion of everyone’s life force.  The aroma helps to center the mind and transport participants to a sacred space, helping to relax, inspire and energize..

 Aroma flow yoga  promises that you will leave feeling lighter, healthier and happier in mind, body and spirit!

THEN ON SUNDAY –  Aromatherapy 101 in the AHA Gallery.  Join us for an afternoon TEA and conversation about how to use Essential Oils for your Wellness – Purpose – Abundance!    All of the info is on our SPECIAL EVENTS PAGE! 

Come discover the uplifting and healing qualities of  Therapeutic Grade oils

AND let’s not forget the most important sense – the INTUITIVE SENSE!    We are here to help you strengthen & activate all of your senses so you fully enjoy your life healthy – wealthy – free!  

You can buy your tickets here … attend three events to receive a complimentary yoga class at Tybee Yoga & Healing Arts or Anahata Healing Arts.
