The Inner Flute

At first the concept of an inner flute on a vertical line within your body may seem strange. To understand what I mean, imagine listening to a piece of music that has everything except the main instrument. It maybe rock and roll without the lead guitar, or Mozart woodwind concerto without the flute. You hear the rhythm, the piece is vaguely familiar, but somehow the essential element that would weave it together, set the mood and give the music soul is missing.

Often ordinary sex is like playing music without the main instrument. The exchange begins beautifully, but the crescendo is interrupted, or the instruments are poorly tuned and the experience is flat. Some element is missing that would allow the lovemaking to take off, to contain a “tune”. The Inner Flute is the instrument that will make your sexual energies “sing”. As you open the Inner Flute channel, you learn how to amplify your arousal and redistribute your sexual energy, your orgasmic sensations, to your entire body. Without the Inner Flute the sexual music played on the single instrument of the genitals could not expand so readily into a symphony in which the whole body becomes involved. Through this practice you will discover the fallacy of the popular belief that sexual orgasm is exclusively a genital affair.

Good Fats, Bad Fats

One type of fat protects your heart, the other puts you at risk for cardiovascular disease. It's wise to know the difference.

The body needs certain healthy fats to construct cell membranes, insulate nerves, and ensure that many vitamins — D and K, for example — work the way they should.

But not all fats are good for you. Some, in the wrong amounts, can seriously damage your health.

Hungry? Really? How to Break Conditioned Eating

Many feelings can be mistaken for hunger, this can lead to comfort eating. It is important to establish whether you are eating for reasons other than actual hunger.


Are you...sad…depressed…annoyed…..celebrating….lonely….bored….on a work break…..out with friends….passing the pub or coffee shop….in the cinema….having a night out….having a day out….having a drink…??


All of these can lead to emotional responses of reaching for food. If it’s social or in situations on our own, we can end up eating! This is because we no longer associate food with hunger but with common situations in which we find ourselves. Sometimes this is conditioned into us as children….if you are good, were you given a sweet? More...

Osho Kundalini Meditation

This meditation lasts for one hour and has four stages, three with music, and the last without. It can be performed at home, or here at al Covo, as part of a Music Therapy or Meditation session.

Kundalini acts like an energetic shower, softly shaking you free of your day and leaving you refreshed and mellow.

“If you force it will become an exercise, a bodily, physical exercise. Then the shaking will be there but just on the surface; it will not penetrate you. You will remain solid, stone-like, rock-like within. You will remain the manipulator, the doer, and the body will just be following. The body is not the question – you are the question.“Allow the shaking; don’t do it. Stand silently, feel it coming and when your body starts trembling, help it but don’t do it. Enjoy it, feel blissful about it, allow it, receive it, welcome it, but don’t will it.More...

10 Facts About Body Fats

1.       Fats have essential role in our health, and that’s about storing energy.
Most of us think of body fats as enemies. But they too, have an important function in our health. Fats keep us warm, stores energy from our food so we can use it anytime we need it. Without fats, you rarely have enough energy to sustain heavy physical activities and workouts. Also, body fats house chemical reactions that regulate growth and immunity. But if your body keeps on storing fats more than you burn, that’s when you start gaining weight. To maintain a lean body, you need to make sure that you are able to expend fats that are equivalent to how much you store.

Music Therapy for People with Dementia

Music Therapy for People with Dementia: Why it Works

What they say is probably true – music heals our soul. Listening to music is a very relaxing experience. It has a very special ability to move us, stir our emotions, and make us feel comfortable and at peace. But for people with dementia, tuning in to their favourite songs does more than relax their mind. Both anecdotal and clinical evidences would say – music is an effective therapeutic intervention that may improve their quality of life...hence the term Music Therapy.

The use of music in the treatment of dementia is not new. In many healthcare facilities, older adults with memory problems are given access to music as a therapeutic intervention. In fact, many music students and experienced musicians throughout UK now regard care home visits as part of their learning experience. Even charities organise shows in home care centres, featuring professional and amateur singers trained to deal with the elderly and memory-impaired audience. More...
