Visit and be drawn into a creative whirlwind with enough energy to forever change your view of what it means to use all of one’s talents.  That is Cyd Damian’s life goal.  Although writing and performing music is his main driving force, Cyd is not the typical musician.

I met Cyd at a exhibit of his abstract oil paintings held at Studio ADT, 2120 E. 6th Street in Tempe, Arizona (480-967-4555).  I was intrigued the colors, textures, overall format of his canvas pieces were often first developed and applied to his guitars.

His is the only art exhibit I have ever attended which included painted musical instruments which the artist could actually play to perform his original music.   Cyd’s artistic purpose is to ‘open the mind to explore new horizons’ and as I viewed his colorful guitars hanging next to his paintings it took a while for me to understand that they are functional instruments.

Intrigued to hear his music, I visited his web site and listened to pieces with names such as “Orion Slave Girl”, “Batidas”, “Last Chance to Ride”, “The Ballard of Bat Dish” and many more.  I am awed at how one person can be proficient in auditory as well as visual media.

Many artists, including myself, paint in oils, acrylics, watercolors and other painting media.  These are different enough, but all appeal to the sense of vision. Few people bridge the senses with any degree of proficiency.  Cyd Damian does it with a graceful ease that isn’t forced or contrived.  His paintings invoke visual melody, tempo, and potent silence in the viewer.  An exhibition of his work is a trans-sensory kaleidoscopic experience.

It that weren’t enough, Cyd is also a photographer.  He plays with light, value, and tonal degrees like he might strum cords on his guitar.  It will be my pleasure to interview Cyd Damian on the Jan. 24, 2012 episode of my Buff Brain, Easy Workouts for the Mind  program (4:30 to 5:30 pm Phoenix time;  6:30 to 7:30 pm EST).  The call in number is 1-818-431-8518 or follow the program on  Archives of the show will be posted on Facebook and Twitter.  Please email me at if you would like me to post the archive on your Facebook page or email it to you after the show.

If you or someone you know has experienced pain of any sort you will not want to miss this episode of the Buff Brain show.  Cay Randall-May, Ph.D. will be joined by wholistic psychiatric psychotherapist Daniel J. Benor, MD, author of “7 Minutes to Natural Pain  Release, WHEE for Tapping Your Pain Away” on the Tuesday, January 10, 2012, 4:30 – 5:30 pm Arizona time, 6:30 – 7:30 pm EST( or call 1-818-431-8518).

Tension headaches, migraines, frozen shoulders, backaches, irritable bowel syndrome,  post surgical discomfort, many types of injuries, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and cancer pain all can be treated with WHEE.  Emotional pains, even those from decades past, can be released as well.

This revolutionary new self-healing method is rapid, permanent, and can be self-administered.  More than mere tapping on the right and left sides of the body, WHEE assists you in focusing you r mind as you tap.  This is what makes it so effective.  In order to get the most wholistic results, affirmations… which are positive, present tense statements… are said as the tapping is done.

This may sound simple, and it is direct and clear, but it is far from simplistic.  Many skills, which Dr. Benor will explain during the show,  go into making WHEE as effective as it is.  Please visit for links to instructions, articles, testimonials, and Dr. Benor’s new book, “7 Steps to Natural Pain Release” as well as a WHEE workbook.  You can reach him by email at or  Dr. Benor’s blogs are and  He is editor of the on-line International Journal of Healing and Caring,

You are invited to listen and call into the program to find out more about spiritual healing, how prayers bring about healing, non-local consciousness, and what it takes to become a spiritual healer.  Find out why it took Dr. Benor 20 years to publish his book, “Spiritual Healing, Scientific Validation of a Healing Revolution”.

Listeners are invited to call into the program (1-818-431-8518) with questions or comments for both Cay Randall-May and Daniel Benor.  Learn how to eliminate pain, pray more effectively, understand and make use of spiritual healing in our own life.
