“Music is one of our most powerful gateways to connect to our spiritual nature. I will be setting the intention and hopefully creating a connection to the Divine to open a pathway for you to experience Oneness with Spirit, the Divine Feminine, and the Divine Masculine. Included will be beautiful “Ave Maria” songs that you probably have never heard by Russian, Spanish, and Polish composers; a powerful setting by Ravel of the Jewish prayer “Kaddish” sung in Hebrew and Aramaic; and inspired songs from Shakespeare’s time to today, including Jane Cross’s settings of sacred texts of mystics claimed by both Hindus and Sufi Muslims, dating back to the 8th century.” – Janice Taylor
Light refreshments will be served after the performance.
