Danzante y viajero incansable, lucha por difundir las Culturas de México

Danzante y viajero incansable, lucha por difundir las Culturas de México Su Misión: rescatar “La sagrada Corona del Emperador Moctezuma” Xokonoschtletl Gómora es un danzante Azteca Mexicano, ha recorrido varios países del mundo, entre ellos Europa y desde hace 20 años ha luchado incansablemente para que la Corona de Moctezuma regrese a México, siendo una de sus prioridades y misión en su vida. Es un ser humano que siempre se ha preocupado por difundir nuestras raíces y enseñar a los individuos como apreciar la vida, como cuidar el medio ambiente, la ecología, la paz y el respeto entre la humanidad, así como los animales, la naturaleza y las naciones, es portavoz oficial y delegado del consejo mundial de los pueblos indígenas. La Corona de Moctezuma se encuentra desde 1524 en Austria, Viena. Y para devolverla Xokonoschtletl ha hablado con diplomáticos, artistas, escritores, políticos, celebridades, ministros y jefes de gobierno, entre otros, con la familia real de Holanda, el Dalai Lama, el Papa en Roma y el representante del gobierno de Liechtenstein (entre suiza y Austria se encuentra este pequeño país), ha tenido reuniones oficialmente con las Naciones Unidas en Suiza y en los Estados Unidos de América; ha llevado a 424 danzantes tradicionales de 13 etnias, de México a Europa. Se ha dedicado a dar conferencias sobre las culturas de México, en universidades de Alemania, en la ONU, Austria, Venecia y muchos otros lugares; ha escrito 11 libros 9 de ellos en alemán. En palabras de Xokonoschtletl y en exclusiva para El Remedio Radio, comentó: Me agrada la tierra de los mayas, tiene una magia especial, en su inmensa mayoría es gente maravillosa, buena y amable, la región es muy importante por su lengua maya después de la lengua náhuatl que se habla en la parte norte del centro de esta sagrada tierra llamada México. Constantemente ando por Yucatán, siempre me ha gustado estar por sus alrededores, me encanta aprender de las personas, conocer sus fábulas y sus historias. Cuando era pequeño escuchaba mucho de los mayas, hoy en día me llama la atención el conocimiento, su sabiduría, la cultura, sus raíces; yo le digo a los individuos que  si yo no hubiera nacido entre gente Náhuatl, mexica, azteca me  hubiera encantado haber nacido maya. Quiero comentar que viví durante 20 años aquí en el estado de Yucatán realizando muchas cosas para apoyar a las comunidades, organizaba fiestas para los niños, juegos, les regalaba cosas, platicaba con ellos, apoyaba a los adultos mayores, a las mujeres y eso me ha hecho intensamente feliz. “El verdadero amor es dar”, no esperar a que nos den, ya si recibimos que bueno.- Puntualizó. El amor es algo que se debe de dar en cualquier concepto, motivo y razón, cuando él ofrece una conferencia a la audiencia le agrada ya que lo que dice lo siente,  le viene del corazón y lo expresa; invita a las personas a que aprendan a vivir con dignidad, sin ningún tipo de drogas, alcohol, sin excesos en el sexo, alimentarse saludablemente, vivir con tranquilidad, con calma, en paz y convivir con la naturaleza como debe de ser. Es importante hablar con la gente para que se conviertan en verdaderos  seres humanos y no solo para que tengan la apariencia física de humanos, esto pasa con la mayoría de las personas, sin embargo todo...

Can Wine Truly Be A Guilt-Free Beverage?

Can Wine Truly Be A Guilt-Free Beverage?

Wine sales in the U.S. totaled $62.7 billion in 2017, with 2018 enjoying steady growth in one California’s strongest industries. According to Wines & Vines and BW166, around $41.8 billion of sales made were of domestic wines, a 2% increase from the previous year. Part of the reason for the ever-increasing popularity of wine is its health appeal. Unlike spirits and liqueurs, wine is fast coming to be known as an important way to keep heart disease and other health problems at bay, in the most pleasurable way possible. The secret lies in the polyphenols A study published in February this year by the American Chemical Society found that wine the powerful compounds called polyphenols can boost our oral health by interacting with bacteria in the gut and fending off disease-causing bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. The study looked into two polyphenols in particular (caffeic and p-coumaric acids), finding that they wield a similar effect to probiotics, which promote gut health. The magic happens when we begin digesting polyphenols in the mouth, soon after we take our first sip. Red wine can keep your mind agile Low to moderate consumption of red wine can delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Scientists studied the neuronal effect of metabolites left by wine after it passes through the digestive system. Interestingly, they found that these metabolites protect cells from dying owing to stress and they are active at different points in the cell signaling process. Wine and heart health Previous studies have shown that resveratrol (a powerful antioxidant in red wine) can promote better heart health and stave off inflammation, with moderate consumption linked to a reduction in the risk of dying from heart disease by 30%-50%. Moreover, a new study published in February 2018 shows that resveratrol can also promote healing and prevent inflammation and blood clotting during heart stent surgery. Of course, the process is surgical and doesn’t involve drinking wine, but it does show the powerful effects that are contained in this beverage. A case for organic wine If you really want to make the most of the beneficial effects of wine, make it red and go organic if you can. It is fascinating to think that our ancestors enjoyed traditional wines which were far healthier and, dare we say, tastier, owing to the absence of pesticides and other chemicals commonly used in modern crops. As noted by Dr. Axe, modern wine is often “made of much more than just grapes. In fact, some conventional wines can contain up to 70 added ingredients — including unnatural yeasts, preservatives, food dyes, residual pesticides, added sulfites, and sometimes added sugar.” Check your ingredients list, go for local producers if you can, and ensure your choices are as natural as possible. Keep it moderate One thing that research has shown is that when it comes to wine, you certainly can have too much of a good thing. Heavy drinking has been linked to liver a plethora of health problems, particularly to liver disease. Keep it to one or two glasses a day and if possible, choose red over white wine. Drinking wine is not only pleasurable, it also helps you fight free radical damage, improves cholesterol levels, improves your heart health and helps battle diabetes, obesity, and weight gain. When shopping for wine, try...

Inspiring and Conscious Transformational Festivals From Around The World

Inspiring and Conscious Transformational Festivals From Around The World

We’re big fans of conscious transformational festivals. We know they can’t be perfect and some valid criticisms have been made. However, at their best they can provide us with a glimpse of what life on Earth could be like if all humans were in touch with their humanity. Conscious festivals foster a creative and collaborative atmosphere of caring, sharing, openness and kindness.  For that reason, they can be can be magical, transformative and often life-changing experiences for many of those who attend. One of the things most people love about festivals is the high level of connectivity. Everyone feels they can show up and be themselves, be accepted, not labeled or judged. Besides the amazing openness and inclusivity you will experience, most of these festivals provide access to incredible music, visionary art installations and performances. Many different lectures & workshops are often available where you can learn from various experts and leading alternative thinkers or share your own knowledge. Burning Man receives the most attention from the media but it’s far from the only conscious festival in the world. Here is a list of some of the best trasnformational festivals from around the world. Universo Paralello, Brazil – December/January An exciting 8-day festival to see out the old year and greet the new with a phenomenal mix of music, art and exhilaration by the beach at Pratigi in Brazil. After 15 yrs. of experience, of running the festival in non-stop rain, to witnessing a breakthrough in Brazilian electronic music, the organizers now believe they are ready to be on the world festival map and bring you something extra special. Children under 12 go free. Rainbow Serpent, Australia – January No longer just an electronic music festival these days you can expect to experience a unique combination of music, art, performance, spiritual education, relaxation and healing at this 4-day event. “While dancing their Dreamings, aborigines spiritually connect themselves to the land and to the Dreamtime. The drumming of feet during the dance draws the earth into dialogue with the dancers, allowing the ceremony to bring the power of the Dreaming to life.” The name Rainbow Serpent is distinctly Australian, coming from the Dreamtime creation story told by the traditional owners of the land. An internationally recognized, multifaceted weekend of dance, color, expression and celebration, people now travel from all over the world to experience what some have said is the best outdoor festival of its type in the Southern Hemisphere. Origin Festival, South Africa – January A 3-day music and arts festival held in a stunning environment just 125km out of Cape Town with backdrops of towering mountains and cradled under huge trees. This is the perfect festival to feel both lost in nature and yet nourished by it, as well as lost in the music and visionary art. We read that the organizers have got this ‘just right’, including separate loos for men and women, all under shade. 99% recycling and a leave no trace policy. Not for under 18’s. Envision Festival, Costa Rica –  February This 4-day festival is more than a festival although it has all the music, visionary art installations, healing sanctuaries and workshops you could wish for. It is also adventure in sustainability, ecology and the magical environment of Costa Rica. You can join the Envisioners before and/or after for truly rapturous experiences in the rain forest...

COASTCITY at the Echoplex in LA:  language and musical divides disappear

COASTCITY at the Echoplex in LA:  language and musical divides disappear

  There is no other way to say it: COASTCITY blew away the Echoplex Thursday night.  The Grammy-nominated multilingual Puerto Rican duo of Danny Flores and Jean Rodriguez  brought pure fun to the spacious stage of one of LA’s best sounding clubs to an audience completely at home with the band’s  parallel languages and music forms. They also brought a full band complete with horns.  And if that wasn’t enough, they brought rapper Álvaro Diaz, who joined them onstage for two songs before his own set.  The result was a solid set of ten songs – some new, some familiar – that kept fans clapping, singing and screaming “otra vez” for an encore (they got it, but more on that later). Flores flashed his mischevious grin behind the keyboard as they opened the act with a new song, “Countach”.  Rodriguez moved back and forth across the stage, jumped up and down, called out greetings, pumped his fist  to the audience and generally poured electricity into an already energetic room.  Moving on to their hit “Besos Pesos”, Rodriquez put downs the guitar and slipped into heartthrob mode as the audience sang along with him.  Another of the duo’s hits, “Noches y Manana”, followed as Rodriquez picked up his signature blue electric guitar and the horns wailed. Rodriguez took a break to talk to the audience in English and Spanish about their tour and their music. The younger brother of the Latin superstar Luis Fonzi, Rodriquez grew up bicultural and bilingual when his family moved to Orlando from Puerto Rico.  He started singing in a school choir, shadowing the footsteps of his trumpet-playing grandfather and his music teacher grandmother. His father collected and constantly played jazz and salsa  records – enough for a museum, according to Rodriquez, who actually started playing the trombone in middle school. But his love of Latin rhythms and R&B took hold and he started singing in high school for real. The rest is history – his hit song “Desconcidos”, working with Danny Flores on projects for Beyoncé and J. Balvin and now COASTCITY. He and Flores linked up on their self-titled debut album, COASTCITY,  producing music they call “Caribbean Soul” – a coastal vibe with a city attitude. That attitude was on full display in the “Mashup” and “Scar Collecta” that followed “Noches Y Manana” and then completely took over with their hit song “Desconocidos” when Álvaro came on stage and opened the song with an urgent, heartfelt rap in Spanish. Both Diaz and Rodriguez got down on the edge of the stage with the fans, singing directly to them, making the audience lovingly their own. Another new song followed,  “Purple and Prince”, with guitar and keyboard solos and a rousing crescendo. Rodriquez moved back to the edge of the stage to charm the front row fans (who were frantically taking advantage of the closeness to shoot cell phone videos) in “Con La Luz”, moved back to hip hop mode with a Latin-beat heavy “Wild Americanos” and  went out with a bang, shouting “Como” and launching into “Pa La  Calle” with the audience singing along.  Rodriguez wrapped up with more gratitude to the audience, switching back and forth between English and Spanish , drawing cheers and cries of “otra vez”. There was an “otra vez” and...
