Planting Seeds of Mindfulness is an animated movie based on a bestselling book by world renowned zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.
The story: Jasper, age 16, a vietnamese- african- american teenager and his family has just moved to a new neighbourhood to be closer to Jasper´s charming and wise zen master like grandfather. At his new school, Jasper is confronted with bullying, anger and stress. Jasper uses the pebble meditation practice that his grandfather taught him to transform his relationships at school and at home.
What does it have to do with Tina Turner? Well first it is a wonderful project, Thich Nath Hanh is a well respected Zen Master, who had a tremendous life and now lives in Plum village in the south of France were people from around the world gather to receive his teachings. And secondly, the songs of the album Children Beyond will be used as a soundtrack for the movie. Tina’s friends and collaborators on the Beyond albums, Regula Curti & Dechen Shak-Dagsay even added their voices to two characters from the movie!
We wish the movie and everybody involved in it the best of luck!

Tina Turner in Milano – June 2016 – (c) Olycom
Tina Turner and her husband Erwin Bach were spotted yesterday, June 6 2016, leaving the Armani store in Milano, Italy! Looking joyful and just fabulous wearing fun Armani sunglasses!
Back in 1997, Tina Turner was in the middle of the gigantic Wildest Dreams World Tour and of course promoting the tour and the album of the same name massively. Appearing on every major US shows, she gave one her best interview on the set of the Larry King show on CNN. Evoking her life in Europe, her boyfriend Erwin Bach and her faith in buddhism, the Queen of Rock is even asked to do a “chant variation” from her favorite mantra Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. The result: a red faced and speechless Larry King and one of the most memorable moment of American TV, bringing the mantra to a broader audience.
Now, fans knows the interview by heart, it’s a classic among us and we are still waiting for the Unplugged Album (as well as the album from “The Buddisht & The Jew ft The Mormon Tabernacle Choir”) but it finally emerged in HD recently. So for all our delight, first video above of Tina chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo followed by the full interview with Larry King uploaded on Youtube by CNN! Enjoy!
Transcription of the mantra Nam Myoho Renge Kyo with English translation and meaning inside the post.

This year, one of the Tina Turner’s most important (if not the most important) recording turns 50. I’ll never forget the first time I heard the song River Deep Mountain High.It is the song that made me fall in love with Tina and it is definitely my song. For me, it always symbolized the path of a lifetime, the road is never flat, you might have to climb High Mountains and swim across Deep Rivers to achieve your goals.
Discovering the song as a child it totally blew me away. Living in a small village in the east of France, I never thought music could sound like this. I was familiar with Classical music but not that much with Rock & Roll and Soul music. And this song was the perfect combination of them all. Defying Spector’s Wall of Sound, Tina’s voice is like a perfect instrument and every sound coming out of her mouth penetrates our body and soul.
We all know the story behind River Deep Mountain High, Ike being put aside from the project by Spector, the reluctance of radio station to play a record judged too white for black stations and too black for white stations and most importantly, the fact that it launched Ike & Tina Turner’s career in Europe.
Everything has been said and written about River Deep so instead of long boring article, and to celebrate the anniversary of the album in the right way, a special upload with a live version of River Deep Mountain High live at the Yankee Stadium in 1969! Enjoy!
