Timeless wisdom tells us that sound and music are powerful tools for supporting our connection to our souls, to each other, and to the Divine. As a pianist, harpist, singer/song-leader, I facilitate shared experiences of sound. I AM a Harmonic Facilitator.
Rumi says: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.”
Music is a wonderful way to connect to that field beyond. In doing so, we experience our connection to the universe within ourselves and all others.
Experiences together with sound may be purely improvisational!
We may sing to the solar eclipse; jam to a soundtrack of the sea; share our wishes for our nation with new mantras; or create a piece together for the crisis in our community at this moment!
Experiences together with sound may be carefully planned!
Together, we may choose 10 songs about peace and justice, or the five senses, and agree to sing or play them together with general rules which we have agreed to!
Sometimes, I offer music to alternate with meditation and dialogue, to support contemplation and community.
Sometimes, we play for celebration and joy, and protest and democracy. Whatever is needed!
