David Friedman and Cast: Karla Hartley, Heather Krueger, Allison Burns, Fred Ross and Craig Sculli
David Friedman, well known as the composer/lyricist of songs of hope, inspiration and humor that have been sung at Unity Churches across the country, as well as in Disney movies, Broadway shows and by singers such as Diana Ross, Barry Manilow, Nancy LaMott and countless others, is bringing his revue, Listen To My Heart, to the 2013 Unity Cruise.
More than just a revue of songs, this is a show about how the voice of Spirit speaks to us through music, and how, if we listen, we are guided by our hearts. Originally produced Off Broadway in New York, this show has had over 20 productions around the world. In recent years, as David became more active in Unity and in Metaphysics (his book, "The Thought Exchange - Overcoming Our Resistance to Living a Sensational Life" is a New Thought best seller) he wanted to give back to the Unity movement by creating a Foundation which would produce Listen To My Heart in cities with a Unity presence, and give the profits to the local Unity Center. With the entire cast of the Stageworks Tampa production, David will present excerpts from this show on the cruise. Join him for a memorable, heart-opening afternoon, and find out how this show can
support your local Unity community.

Peter Russell, M.A., D.C.S., F.S.P.
Peter Russell is a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest.
At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind, he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return, took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation.
He also has a postgraduate degree in computer science, and conducted there some of the early work on 3-dimensional displays, presaging by some twenty years the advent of virtual reality.
In the mid-seventies, Peter Russell joined forces with Tony Buzan and helped teach "Mind Maps" and learning methods to a variety of international organizations and educational institutions.
Since then his corporate programs have focused increasingly on self-development, creativity, stress management, and sustainable environmental practices. Clients have included IBM, Apple, Digital, American Express, Barclays Bank, Swedish Telecom, ICI, Shell Oil and British Petroleum.
His principal interest is the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. He has written several books in this area: The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Global Brain Awakens, The Creative Manager, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God.
As one of the more revolutionary futurists, Peter Russell has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences, in Europe, Japan and the USA. His multi-image shows and videos, "The Global Brain" and "The White Hole in Time" have won praise and prizes from around the world. In 1993 the environmental magazine Buzzworm voted Peter Russell "Eco-Philosopher Extraordinaire" of the year.
He is 24,201 days old.
