I want to extend a huge thank you and gratitude to everyone who came and helped out at my show on Thursday. It meant so much to me to share the evening with all of you, to read your reflections on home and to sing them on stage, and the dream tree! oh my goodness. It was so wonderful to explore after the show. Thank you so much for taking part.
Thank YOU’s (in no particular order)

As many of you know, I have been training intensely in vocal improvisation in groups and facilitation using the arts and creativity, specifically in the creation of transformative spaces. I’m about to head back to Asheville for the second half of my training in Art of Facilitation, and then off to California for a week of vocal improvisation with Rhiannon, a mentor who has traveled the world teaching and has toured with Bobby McFerrin and his group Voicestra.
I’m excited to share this work with you all, and the picture is still forming of what that will look like. There will likely be a singing circle, and possibly a larger arts project and circle as well, in which we will explore our creativity and power together in a broader sense. This work has been deeply transformative for me and I look forward to sharing it with those of you who feel it’s the right thing for you.
I won’t be in touch much while I’m away, but will be back in mid-July.
