Their first album “Yes We Can Feel” went live in November and is already widely acclaimed. This was the setting stone for a deeper working relationship between Sony DADC & Ahhaa. The partnership then went on to release two more albums “Awesome Genesis” & “Find Love”.

Each of the album tracks ranges an average duration of 3-4 mins. They can induce people to feel livelier & happier when performing daily routine activities.

Tracks like “We Can Commute Awesome”, “We Can Sleep Awesome” and “We Can Cook Awesome” are quick-help tracks that help people to find a renewed sense of living & purpose while going about their daily lives. In the same context tracks like “Hurt to Love” and “1ne” strike a deep chord with listeners, helping people to feel profound inner peace & clarity.

Ahhaa founders Diane Bacchus & Ashwin Srisailam take people through simple understandings, insights & practices that are relevant to people from all walks of life accompanied by music that sets the tone for transformation. The music has been produced by Karan Grover – Producer for movies like Jugni, One Heart, Dhoop.

Sony DADC from Mumbai India has been deeply involved in laying out a longer roll-out plan for the greatest impact and is now in the process of initiating special emotional excellence campaigns on various platforms. Jojie Mammen, Business Head of Sony DADC said “Having worked with several Indian spiritual leaders and organizations, Sony DADC has established itself as a content leader in the health and spiritual wellness space. However, this is the first time we are working with such unique emotional well-being content which is why we are excited and motivated to see this partnership flourish”.

Emotional Wellbeing is a big need today & access to it is very limited. Ahhaa is on a mission to bring it to one & all – this is the passion that Diane & Ashwin carry every day with a team of people from Pune & New York. Ashwin, a former monk of 19 years and Diane, a mom who is all about growth and service are well poised to carry out this mission.

Oscar & Grammy Winner A.R Rahman launched Ahhaa with Diane & Ashwin in April 2015.

Additionally, Ahhaa has created wellbeing zones in companies and colleges. They are known as Ahhaa Spaces. Ahhaa also has a range of products launching in the near future that cater to sleep, stress & much more.

Ahhaa has participated in conducting meditations and talks at the United Nations on inner wellbeing and has conducted similar programs at Harvard Medical School including launching the latest album “Find Love” at Harvard Medical School.

Ahhaa’s mission is to help every human on this planet have the tools to deal with any kind of internal suffering whether it’s stress, depression, anxiety, anger, loneliness etc… towards living a life of happiness and feeling awesome about oneself. We believe that with more partnerships like Sony DADC this can be accomplished.

Great Turnout for Shema Kolainu- Hear Our Voices Workshop

Dr. Deborah Gruber MEd, PhD, BCBA-D, LBA

A presentation on teaching yoga to children with Autism was given by Dr. Deborah Gruber

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — NEW YORK, NY, April 24, 2018 Over 100 people attended a Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices workshop at Touro College in Manhattan. The presentation was focused on teaching yoga techniques to children with Autism. The room was filled with parents, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and special education providers. With over 30 years of professional experience, Dr. Deborah Gruber, MEd, PhD, BCBA-D, LBA, presented the workshop and kept the audience engaged with her knowledge of yoga. She discussed the different strategies of teaching yoga poses including various types of prompts, graduated guidance, and other components to guide physical activities to children with all ranges of ability.

Dr. Gruber demonstrated different traditional yoga techniques and behavioral strategies when teaching yoga to children with Autism. She noted that it is not all about performing the poses, but there's a greater importance in the process of learning these physical skills along the way. For longer poses with more steps, such as the half moon pose, it is broken down into feet together, arms up, while bending to the side. If a child can only put their feet together and not raise their hands up, it is better to focus on helping them reach that next step. Dr. Gruber also discussed introducing play into activities. This included imitation games such as "Be the Yogi", (similar to Simon Says), or songs that encourage moving around the room. The audience got to participate in an activity by doing a traditional triangle pose in pairs. One person acted out the pose, while the other acted as the teacher and prompted their partner to make sure the poses were done correctly. The session concluded with a Q&A session.

Dr. Deborah Gruber is the president of Lotus Behavioral Consulting, LLC and is an adjunct professor at Queens College. She has been working in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and Special Education for over 30 years.

Shema Kolainu – Hear our Voices, is a School and Center for Children with Autism, and is a leader in the field of special needs education. Our workshop series is a great opportunity to gain knowledge from some of the best resources in the field of autism. Joshua Weinstein – Ph.D., M.B.A., CEO & Founder, Suri Gruen – Program Director, Gili Rechany – MA, SBL, BCBA, LBA, Educational Director

This workshop was made possible New York City Council Autism Initiative who provided the necessary funds for this program. The next workshop, Opening Doors for Employment: Tips on Promoting Success for Individuals with Autism will be on Tuesday, May 29th featuring Dr. Stephen Shore.

World premier of Ukrainian art duo at Alexandre Gertsman Gallery; April 26-June 8

“Fantasy and Fury: An Artistic Journey from Kiev to New York”

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (NY), UNITED STATES, April 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Faced with the tragic Soviet legacy, a war with Russia, and building a new nation, Ukrainian artists are grappling with major upheavals on many levels. The result is some of the most interesting and visually stunning artworks in Europe today.

This world premier hosted by Alexandre Gertsman Gallery brings to American shores the first series of works by the newly created Ukrainian art duo, BM. The exhibition, “Fantasy and Fury: An Artistic Journey from Kiev to New York,” marks the start of long-term collaboration between the gallery and the artists. It's an effort to try to understand the meaning of national culture, and also to question the very nature of art and culture.

What are the roots of BM? Gorbachev’s Perestroika and the transformation of the Soviet Union in the second half of the 1980s culminated in Ukrainian independence in 1991. The new social and political order unleashed a variety of philosophies and individual freedoms.

Fast forward to the tumultuous events of 2013/2014 in Kiev. The Ukrainian revolution, known as “Euromaidan,” spurred the creation of BM. The two artists, Mykola Babak and Evgene Matveev, are very different — both are established and critically acclaimed, but each has diametrically opposed styles.

Still, they unite around the belief that only through Ukrainian identity, through modern transformation and the modernization of Ukrainian artistic thought, through the integration of the national philosophy into an international process can a path be paved for their country’s future.

Rare is the occasion when two accomplished artists who previously received all possible national honors suddenly decide to join forces and combine their ideas and thoughts. If Komar & Melamid, one of the world’s most famous art duos, recently split after four decades of collaboration, then the BM tandem was created after the artists had worked individually for four decades.

The creativity of BM stretches across multiple disciplines and involves work in different media, book design, literature, poetry and philosophical conceptualizations. Their art is a combination of populism and postmodernism, but while embedded in the postmodern system of values they do not fully share all concepts of postmodern philosophers such as Baudrillard, Derrida or Foucault.

BM uses old traditional forms to create new, vibrant artistic elements, and they like to toy with historical traditions, but also to build upon and tear them asunder. Their ideas are ambivalent towards and contradictory of past art, but they are also nourished by it. BM’s works are nostalgic: a remembrance of a world that no longer exists.

Pulitzer Prize nominee and writer David Margolick notes the “mystical beauty” projected by BM’s works, underlining the artists’ unique approach to “memorializing and bringing the at times tragic past to life within a positive context.”

Art critic and art historian, Donald Kuspit, refers to BM as “conceptual and expressive masterpieces – tours de force of ironic, even absurdist dialectic as well as masterful demonstrations of [their] ability to integrate different styles and mediums into a singular aesthetic statement.”

Expert to Advise Consumers about Bringing Their Shopping For Funeral Services into 21st Century on April 29

Josh Slocum, executive director of the Funeral Consumers Alliance, explains how people can arrange a dignified, affordable funeral for a loved one or friend.

For one of a family’s most important and potentially expensive purchases, funeral businesses usually provide vague pricing information online.”

— Executive Director Josh Slocum, FCA

PARSIPPANY , NEW JERSEY, US, April 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The keynote speaker during the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Northern New Jersey’s (FCANNJ) Annual Conference on Sunday, April 29 at 2 PM will discuss how consumers can bring their funeral services shopping into the 21st century. Josh Slocum, executive director of the Funeral Consumer Alliance (FCA) is presenting the program. FCA is the nationwide federation of local, not-for-profit organizations that provide reliable consumer information to people seeking to arrange a dignified and affordable funeral for a family member, friend or loved one, or pre-arranging for themselves.

FCANNJ’s Conference will be held in the main branch of the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library. The Conference is open to the general public – and admission is free with parking available at the library.

For more information about Mr. Slocum, the presentation or the Annual Conference, visit FCANNJ website (www.fcannj.org) or call 973-346-2423.

Mr. Slocum’s presentation will address the FCA’s national survey of funeral businesses that shows the following:
• Difficulty comparing prices for funeral services when funeral homes avoid offering them online – a resource used by 80% of Americans
• The search for answers to questions about services, requirements and other information needed to plan a funeral.

Mr. Slocum said, “For one of a family’s most important and potentially expensive purchases, funeral businesses usually provide vague pricing information online.”

Most important, he will also discuss the status of FCA’s petitioning the Federal Trade Commission to change the rule requiring funeral businesses to reveal their prices online.
After the presentation, there will be time for questions and refreshments.

Josh Slocum’s Biography
Mr. Slocum first joined FCA in 2002, and then became its executive director in 2003. Since that time, he has served as a national spokesperson for funeral consumer rights and ethics in the industry. In addition, Mr. Slocum has testified before Congress and has been an expert on funeral issues in the national media including “60 Minutes” and The New York Times. Finally, he has helped draft federal and state legislation protecting consumers who are planning funerals.

The areas participating in Meet Me at the Park include one “wild card” city and: Austin, Chicago, Charlotte, Durham, Hartford, Los Angeles, Houston, Fresno, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Orlando and Brevard County, Florida.

Started in 2014, the Meet Me at the Park Earth Month campaign seeks to improve local parks through projects that connect kids to nature, inspire healthy living and provide access to sports.
