UPCOMING TOUCH DRAWING WORKSHOPS & PROJECTS
I have a light travel schedule for fall & winter. I am focusing on a new deck to be released in 2020 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of SoulCards. I will also record an album of my Song Bath with crystal bowls. Save the date for a weekend at Rowe Center April 3-5, and the Touch Drawing Gathering July 12-19. See the full schedule. To be notified when my new creations are available, and if I come to your region, join the mailing list.

I am now offering twice-monthly Sound Baths on Whidbey Island. I am also arranging to hold them on many of my trips and conferences. It is my greatest joy to immerse in this deep sound field within the circle of participants. Check the schedule to find upcoming Song Baths
