225 Lisa Marie Darling “Soundscapes and Lullabies”

New York-based sound healing artist Lisa Marie Darling crafts meditational soundscapes to foster emotional and energetic reconnection. Through a cappella vocalization and experimental, looped melody formation, Lisa creates otherworldly compositions to aid in identifying and unlocking fossilized trauma and grief. To date, she has released three albums—Darling Lullabies (2014), Canciones De Cuna (2017), and Into The Deep (2022). Her latest album presents a guided journey through inner emotional landscapes, integrating the vital healing energies of the celestial bodies of Earth, Sedna, Venus, Saturn, Mercury, and the moons of Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune. Listeners will be led into a calming space where surrender, meditation, reflection, and contemplation feel safe, possible, and sacred.

Today, Lisa shares her background and why she began doing the sound work including the four major life events that led her to the work including her mystical experiences and her life’s challenges. We begin talking about lullabies and their potent ability to heal and reduce pain and suffering not only babies, but also during palliative care. We then get to listen to some of the soundscapes, and she talks about how they came to be through her connection to astrology and planetary energies. We end our conversation talking about Lisa’s advocacy work to reduce sound pollution that was infiltrating her living space.

To experience the magic firsthand, you can join one of Lisa’s livestream Soundscape Journey events via the free Insight Timer meditation app. You can also find her music on Spotify, Bandcamp, SoundCloud, and YouTube or follow Darling on Instagram and TikTok. If you are interested in hosting a live Soundscape Journey event in the Hudson Valley area, you can contact Lisa directly and you can learn more about her work and all of her online and in-person offerings via http://www.lisamariedarling.com.

Finally, you can learn more about the Headstone Gallery event in which Lisa’s Soundscapes will be a part of coming opening June 4th over here.

224 “BLOOM” with Circle Creative Collective

Today I am joined by Melissa Hewitt, Mirabai Trent, and Jenny Wonderling from Circle Creative Collective to talk about their upcoming happening, BLOOM, and their ongoing work to build on their commitment of connecting and inspiring diverse communities by sharing and preserving traditional crafts and skills.

BLOOM: the Rebirth invites you to rediscover your dreams and your most joyous and authentic you. Step upon candlelit paths through interactive dreamscapes celebrating wonder and the fullness of spring. Join our visceral journey through the woods and be both witness and player on an exuberant full sensory experience where performance meets the sacred and celebration. This is avant-garde ceremony, breaking the bounds and touching pure magic as creativity emerges from the trees and forest floor, falls from the sky, and is illuminated all around you. It’s a spectacle, an inspiration, an awakening and an offering to the earth and our collective future. This May, meet magical creatures who will share wisdom, music, dance, and even bring healing. BLOOM is living theater wrapped in a prayer.

We also talked about their offerings Sankofa, Chrysalis for teens program, and their Craft Preservation workshops. It was a lively and loving conversation about their relationships to rebirth, joy, conscious living and connecting in community.

Hope to see some of you at BLOOM on May 28th or June 4th at the Stone Ridge Orchard! Remember to reach out to them if you want to help out or would like to request a sliding scale ticket discount.

Oh, and here’s the information on this Saturday’s Together for Mental Health Community Walk.

222 Kia Abilay “The Gift of Listening” and Lisa Hantes “The Gift of Giving”

Today I celebrate the life of Kia Abilay. She was a guest on the show September 21, 2021 when she talked about her book, The Gift of Listening: Cultivating Your Connection to Spirit. The part of her story we didn’t get into in her interview was how she had been diagnosed with esophageal cancer and what she was doing to heal from it. Kia passed on November 22, 2021 and so today, on her birthday and the day of her Celebration of Life, I read from portions of her book in her honor.

Then in the second hour of the of the show, I am joined by Lisa Hantes president of the board of directors for Angel Food East, one of Kia’s favorite local charities which was chosen for remembrance donations in her honor. Lisa has been the board president for the last 8 years and is also a volunteer chef.  Locals may know her as the GM and co-proprietor of Keegan Ales, where she worked together with her husband Tommy for the past 10-12 years. She also works with Ulster Literacy association as a grant administrator and tutor trainer. Lisa lets us know how we can support the work of Angel Food East and all the cool happenings on the horizon at Keegans.

Don’t forget about Marielena’s opening this Friday at the Dorsky in New Paltz!
