Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy ThanksgivingAll month long we celebrate the holiday of gratitude – Thanksgiving! (The actual date is Nov. 23 this year.) We hope you have time to reflect on all your many blessings that connect you to feeling grateful. We are aware we have so much to be thankful for:

  • Our gigs where we’ve had an opportunity to share our harp music, passion and message.
  • Our customers who continue to purchase books and CDs, and use our products to support their journey.
  • Our addendum BioMat business and all the wonderful people we’ve had an opportunity to connect with and help in their healing journeys.
  • Our learning from the first two Virtual Harp Summits.
  • Our re-connection this past summer with the harp therapy community (International Harp Therapy Program’s regional conference).
  • Our flexible schedule so that I can be present to my aging parents.
  • On and on the list goes …

So, you can see, we have much to be in gratitude. How about you?

Speaking again for your group/organization?!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn the past blog posts, I mentioned the Virtual Harp Summit that I “attended,” including utilizing some of this information for the harp therapy community. It has been fun to create new presentations, trainings and retreats based on the 50+ hours of Summit learnings.

Even if I have already spoken to your group/organization, it might be time for a re-visit!! If you are interested, let’s connect!

Regional International Harp Therapy Conference

ConferenceLast month, we mentioned Virtual Harp Summits (VHS) 1 and 2. In a few days, I have the honor to present to the International Harp Therapy Program’s regional conference in Cedar Falls, IA. While it is a bit daunting to present to my peer group, I know it will be a special time together.

At this conference, I will be sharing some of the key learnings from VHS 1 and 2 … all of this information will be very useful to the harp therapy community, I believe. The goal is to deepen our understanding of this very special instrument that we all love to play in a therapeutic manner.

Can’t wait to be present with my colleagues and friends!

Virtual Harp Summit 1 and 2

Virtual Harp SummitIn late February, one of my fellow harp therapists called to order a BioMat. In our conversation, she asked, “Are you going to ‘attend’ the Virtual Harp Summit (VHS) 2?” I had to admit I didn’t even know what she was talking about!! She explained that this was the second one and it was going to be about harp techniques. (The first VHS was focused on creativity and expression.) In total, both VHSs were 35+ harpists from all around the world and it was a wonderful training “from the living room.” My friend who called was definitely “attending” the second one. During the week when the Summit is “live,” the sessions are free; after that, it is $97 to have access to the trainings in perpetuity.

I signed up and completed both VHS 1 and 2 – what a fabulous experience! All told, it was approximately 50 hours of lessons, trainings and house concerts. To get to hear all these masters from around the world perform was simply amazing!!

It inspired many ideas … stay tuned to watch for more information!
