Power of Song, Power of Voice

This September I get to work/play with Barbara McAfee and Quanita Roberson in St. Paul, Minnesota. We’ve created a new format to work with — Circle, Song, and Ceremony. Please come join us! Quanita feels like an old friend though we’ve only known each other since 2013. Barbara is tops on my list of people I know about, and that many of my best friends know directly, yet, that I’ve never met in person. Fun.

Barbara posted this video recently, her Ted Talk in Bend, Oregon from earlier this year. Enjoy it fully. It left me and my 12 year-old singing through much of the day.

Here’s my headlines:

Barbara — “The oral tradition, voice, and song help us live and work better together.” Amen!

William James (American Philosopher and Psychologist) — “We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface, but connected in the deep.” Gold!

Hafiz (13th Century Persian Poet) — “I wish that I could show you, whenever you are lonely or walking in the dark, the astonishing light of your being.” Thank you!
