Handy, Spook Remembering Pete Seeger History,
Life Skills- Other,
Music
I had the fortune of performing 50+ concerts and festivals alongside Pete Seeger between 2003 and his passing in 2014, learning many of his songs and the stories behind them – and not only songs he wrote but those of Woody Guthrie and many others. He was a mentor not only of music but of how to be a decent human being. After Pete passed in 2014, I participated in many tribute concerts with the likes of Peter Yarrow, Tom Chapin, David Amram, Guy Davis and others. Now, I have put together a “program” called “Remembering Pete Seeger.” I am presenting it in concert halls, theaters, arts centers, libraries, festivals, summer concert series, and colleges all over the world. “Spook Handy honors the spirit of Pete Seeger, so excellently, by sharing the music with everyone on stage and in the audience in the same way that Pete did. He makes music the star. That’s why Pete loved to play with him so often and why all of us who are still here also do.” … David Amram – recipient of the second annual Pete and Toshi Seeger Power of Song Award.

Paul, LoriAnn Unique Shamanic Journeys with LoriAnn Paul Health & Fitness- Sports,
Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other
At certain points in one's life, it may become important to heal, to “empty” or “clean house” internally, in order to release old, worn-out beliefs, patterns, negative thought processes and unwarranted fears. Shamanic Journeying is the perfect way to heal old hurts, even stubborn ones, in order to experience wholeness and optimal health and well-being. Each workshop has a unique theme. Examples of themes are Seasons of the year, elements of Nature, such as water, essences of particular plants, such as pine from the forest, etc. I may lead students through a series of very gentle Yoga stretches and breathing techniques to help them to relax. We then transition into Shamanic Journeying, in order to get in touch with our innate wisdom and sense of perfect wholeness. In this state of consciousness, it becomes possible for students to gain profound insights into their own lives, those of their friends and loved ones, as well as the wider world in which we all live. Journeying as a group helps to create a safe, secure and supportive environment, in which an individual feels validated in her/his own experience.
