About Me: 

I'm 40 years old, and in a major life transition. I feel like I'm being born out into the world in new way. I find it exciting, terrifying.... and beautiful!!! I'm happy to have been turned onto this organization. One of the, if not THE, main threads of my life is all about VOICE. Deep woundings and great joy abide here.

In May my husband of 20 years became my former husband... old friend, new friend. I leave in October for India to spend 6 months to 1 year with my vocal teacher. He is teaching me Classical Hindustani vocal in the Khyal tradition. I also am jumping into the opportunity to go on pilgrimage with my spriritual teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. Life these days is moving so fast. Without hesitating I jump.....except for when I'm hesitating.

My Passions: 
being myself, learning to love and be loved more and more deeply, learning classical hindustani singing in the traditional manner, learning and working with sound towards expression and healing
My Challenges: 
becoming overwhelmed by my fear of exposure, the need for financial assistance to pursue fulltime learning classical hindustani music, loveing myself
My Vision for the Future: 
gently holding my fear so that i can fully occupy space that is me in this world, and helping myself and others be in there voice by singing and working with sound
My Areas of Expertise: 
none
My Languages: 
English, learning hindi
