To give and receive inspiration, wisdom, guidance. To heal, through self-expression: music, writing, speaking, dance, art. To heal together. To find ourselves. To live our dreams. To create peace. To live Freedom.
My work as a singer/songwriter goes hand in hand with my role in the Freedom Movement: a worldwide network of organizations, artists and individuals doing revolutionary work in social justice, sustainability, and education. It is a developing model for self-sustainable, self-sufficient, self-reliable living/learning communities where everyone is a teacher and a student, where everyone is encouraged to find their unique gifts and passions, and where we live in harmony with each other and the planet.

Part of the work we do is offer creative arts therapy, mentoring, and teacher education in schools, detention centers, student groups, etc. To this end, we offer peace circles, peace concerts, song healing workshops and more, for people of all ages. The flyers below outline some of the freedom services we offer. We also provide educational and behavioral consulting to address your school's needs: curriculum development, group building, bullying and restorative justice, and much more.
