but more about that at the end of this Museletter. First, I recently underwent a spinal cord fusion operation, and am happy to report minimal complications, and expectancy of a full recovery. I may need two more operations to establish 100% function, but the process has begun! I wanted to personally thank each one of you who's prayers and well wishes helped me through the most difficult and challenging physical intensity of my life. Special thanks goes out to Beth Savitt of the Savitt Foundation who rescued me from the hospital and nursed me back to health personally. I am excited, because the October Harvest Moon is upon us, and the primal Peagan and nature energies are at play within us all. I am so excited to embark upon a HEARTLAND tour beginning with the Iowa City Yoga festival! (http://iowacityyogafestival.com/)
Continuing to many of the heartland's most inspired communities with the Blessings of the Mystics Tour. Take a look at the schedule below and invite those you may know in the area to come out and support the Lovevolution's Edutainment Events!

I wanted to take a moment and personally introduce you to few projects in each Museletter that we feel are making a real difference in the world. First, we are excited about this October's nominee…please take a moment to support an amazing artist starting a Global Art Movement in the form of a project called: The Open heART Wall: http://www.theopenheartwall.org
Artist Elena Alexandra writes:
"The greatest tragedy in life is not the broken heart, but the hardened heart." It is not LOVE we fear, but the broken heart. Yet the very unwillingness for the heart to be broken IS the broken heart. The tragedy and the irony is that in order to avoid heartbreak, people live in a state of broken-heartedness. In the willingness to have the heart be broken a million, billion, trillion times, true love is revealed. It is our intention to visually demonstrate the beauty of a broken heart and visually change the painful “story” that has been long associated with it. The “story” that in our opinion, has given rise to a detrimental phenomenon of our very evolution…the fear of LOVE!
I believe that a heart is not open unless it's been broken and that a closed heart is to spiritual vision what closed eyes are to physical vision...self-induced blindness! One cannot LOVE with a closed heart just as one cannot see with closed eyes.
I have created thousands of white porcelain hearts (representing: cold and closed yet fragile and breakable) big enough to fit into a person’s hand and filled with paint-like substance. Upon throwing the heart against a hard canvassed wall it will create a burst of colors demonstrating the beauty of a heart breaking open. Each participant will be given a heart representing his/her own. They can write their name, a word or phrase upon this heart and choose to break it themselves or if daring enough, ask someone to… “break my heart”. The intention is to create a cathartic experience and an abstract painting resulting from thousands of broken-open hearts. Revealing the beauty that awaits after facing one’s fear.
With the intention of breaking-open our collective heart, we are taking this movement/heART installation around the globe. Please check our website (www.theopenheartwall.org
) for dates and locations.
Collectively we can face our fear, break our hearts open and awaken to the beauty that unfolds as the walls of our hardened hearts shatter right before our eyes.
To support the movement please follow on:
