Thanks for Visiting my Page! I hope you’ll read on and find inspiration to reach for your own dreams and passions while you’re learning about mine!
If you know me, you know I have an undying passion and devotion to music, culture and community. You probably also know that I love to travel and experience other cultures, in particular to learn their music and spiritual practices.
At 41 years young, I am finally stepping fully into following some long held dreams that I have been letting simmer on the back burner for too long.
I have had a dream burning inside me for as long as I can remember of traveling the world and documenting and learning about the music, dance and religions of other peoples particularly how they influence society and sustain strong connections for generations.
Over the years, the dream has expanded to a desire to be of service through my passions and to find ways to help others in the process.

Poi spinning came from New Zealand. The Poi was first used by the Maori women.
The following two quotes are from Home of Poi-a company based in New Zealand that started back in 1998. They have dedicated themselves to teaching and spreading the word of Poi along with making a successful business. Their site is a nice place to visit over and over.
The Poi chant was a graceful, fluid dance involving the rhythmic manipulation and gentle tapping of the poi, a fibre ball attached to a plaited cord.

People invented religion and dogma.
The human characteristic of claiming superiority caused people to claim their religion was the only
or best religion and gave leaders a tool to take their people to war.
This is one view point. How do you feel about this? Watch what Deepak Chopra says about it.
