Join me in conversation with Jeralyn Glass as a part of her phenomenal interview series, "The Sacred Science of Sound." This is an exciting new project, now in progress. 16 amazing personalities share an intimate conversation around Creating harmony and well-being through the Healing Power of Music, Vibrational Frequency and Energy Medicine. These conversations are WELL worth your time and are available for free. You don't want to miss this.

My conversation with Jeralyn Glass on the Frequency of Flight is sincere and honest. I share   my thoughts about the way Music continues to be the healing thread in my life with songs that prophesy my next stage of learning. Jeralyn is the real deal and our conversation was amazing. I can't wait to hear what the others had to say! Tune in and spread the news!

Take FULL advantage of the Glorious GIVE Campaign.  All of the sheet music for the Glorious Chant Collection of 18 songs, are available to you NOW for FREE.   Rather than print songbooks to sell and distribute, I made the choice to GIVE the music away. It is the right thing to do because I want folks who love the music to be able to perform it without guessing at the chords. You will receive a link to a zip file that contains 18 Instrumentaltracks, 18 lead sheets with melody and chords, and 18 piano arrangements (for musicians who prefer to read the music). To receive the live performances of the chants as performed by the Agape Choir, go to CDBaby.com and purchase downloadable files or order the Glorious Chant Collection CD which comes with a lyrics booklet.

Soul Sisters love to stay connected and to touch in with each other because that's just what Sisters do. Our 'Harvest for the Soul' gathering on Oct. 25th  (with surprise guests that included my own Mama Byars, and also 6 gorgeous children!) was beautiful beyond our expectations.  Dynamically. we celebrated the emerging projects that some were bringing to the world, we prayed and released things that no longer serve us, we walked together around the lake and shared precious moments of just listening to each other. This gathering was so soulful. And of course... we ate some yummy food.

After that amazing success which also connected with Sisters in Georgia and North Carolina, we are making joyful plans for our next event, 'Soul Sisters Connect' on Feb 2, 2019. If you ever attended a Soul Sisters retreat in the past or know someone who has, then you know that if you just show up, something WONDERFUL will happen!! Mama Kat and many other amazing women will be there. Why not YOU? Let's get connected and expand into more freedom with the Soul Sisters. Do save the date! (Brothers! I'm personally working on something special that will soon include you, too! I will sing to you at the concerts!!)
